We loved our food as usual!
This was a great visit! I had the January mushroom risotto special with venison loin and I was blown away! So delicious. The drinks were great (old fashioned and glass of chardonnay). The donut bread pudding was ok.
My date had the nashville hot chicken sandwich. It is not what you would get in Nashville but a good northeastern take on it.
Natalie, Thanks for the feedback on your visit to Cured. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time with us. We are glad that you enjoyed our January Mushroom special so much. Thanks again for your time and we hope to see you again soon. Vince Culotta Managing Partner
First time going to Cured. Started off ordering a vodka/ soda and one of their specialty beers. Beer was fine but vodka/soda came with ZERO garnish or fruit. Bar tending 101... put a lime on it! Appetizer of steak and cheese egg roll was good but for $14 came w/2 small egg rolls. Husband ordered a sandwhich... french dip. Bread was soggy, fries were cold, flavor was bland. I had the special, mushroom gnocchi..ZERO flavor. Not sure they have ever heard of salt and pepper. Clearly no quality control in the kitchen. We were starving when we arrived and left more than half of the food on our plate. $76 for 2 drinks, app, sandwhich, and pasta. Happy to pay top dollar for quality food but this was so far from it. Will never go again. One and done!
Andrea, Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your experience at Cured. We are disappointed to hear that you were so underwhelmed with your visit. We do hope in time you might reconsider and give us another chance to serve you with a meal that is up to our standards, as during this visit we clearly missed the mark. We are very sorry that your meal did not live up to our standards, nor your expectations. Vince Culotta Managing Partner
Enjoyed our meal at Cured although a couple of our choices were not a good as food we’ve experienced is past visits. Specifically, the quail legs had an odd sweet sauce that wasn’t our cup of tea and the burger was over salted. The service and atmosphere was great but the miscues on the two items made our visit “sub-optimal”.
Jeff, Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your experience at Cured. We are disheartened to hear that your meal didn't live up to our standards, nor your expectations. We will share your comments with the chef. We work hard to ensure that all food comes out of the kitchen correct and seasoned properly. We do hope you might join us again in the future.

This was our first visit but it wont be our last! Our service was amazing and our food was outstanding! We cant wait to go back :)
Great food, very friendly and helpful staff.
There is a 10% discount for veterans and 1st responders!
Looking forward to our next visit!
The place is nice, the tables are actually socially distanced correctly. The service was great. The food portions are small.
Fantastic food, the smoked old fashion was enough to make me come back by itself but the whole experience was great! Definitely would recommend!
Matthew, Thanks for the great feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time with us. We are thrilled that you enjoyed our Smoked Old Fashioned so much. It is our most popular cocktail so it will be on the menu forever. We hope to see you again soon. Vince Culotta Managing Partner
Excellent food. Excellent service! Hillary was the best!
James, Thanks for the great feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time with us. We agree, Hilary is the best. We hope to see you again soon! Vince Culotta Managing Partner
Really enjoyed the food and drinks. Great table service. They were out of the Rye I ordered, so I asked for the bartender's recommendation. They sent me a very smooth, nice replacement, but still only charged me for the (cheaper) one I requested. That's great bar service!
Sean, Thanks for the great feedback. We are glad that you enjoyed your time with us. Also happy that we could accommodate you on the rye selection. We hope to see you again soon. Vince Culotta Managing Partner
Excellent meal as always! Looking forward to going back again soon.
Sean provided great customer service. The food was wonderful. We'll be back
The staff was courteous. The food was delicious. Given COVID we decided to sit outside and were provided with 2 heaters to keep us warm. Will be going back.
Rachel, Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your time with us at Cured. We are glad that you enjoyed your experience and here's looking forward to a time when we don't need the heaters. That being said, thanks for braving the elements. We do what we can to keep our guests comfortable. We hope to see you again soon. Vince Culotta Managing Partner
Staff go out of their way! Great food! A local favorite!!
Food was excellent. Great value, great taste! My wife and I will definitely be back!
For a New Year’s Eve dinner, the dining experience at Cured was phenomenal! Although the chicken for the chicken & waffles entree needed to be brined either longer or brined period for more flavor, that was the only small thing I’d have changed. (Some might find that it is seasoned just fine but my southern-bred palate favors bolder flavor especially in fried chicken.) The chicken, nonetheless, was moist & cooked perfectly as was the waffle that came with it. The grilled pit wings & Brussels sprouts appetizers were both quite memorable. They were both delicious & appropriately sized for an appetizer but could also serve as a light meal. I don’t generally eat potato salad that I (or a relative) didn’t prepare but Cured’s take on it was refreshing & surprisingly worked well as a bed for the wings. The mushroom gnocchi though? Sheesh. It was nothing short of fantastic. I ended up making a last-minute substitution due to gnocchi shortage but the flavor profile was still maintained. It came highly recommended by the server (bartender) & it did not disappoint. Now to the server/bartender (Taylor). He was absolutely amazing! His customer service was outstanding & made for a truly inviting and enjoyable dining experience. Definitely asking for him again & will definitely return to Cured for a great meal & amazing service.
Elle, Thanks for the great feedback. We are delighted that you enjoyed your time with us, and thanks for trusting us with your New Year's Eve dinner. It means the world to us when our guests allow us to serve them on special occasions. We hope to see you again soon. Vince Culotta Managing Partner
No oysters. No Philly cheese steak egg rolls. Wings tasted weird. Server was nice.
Enjoyed great socially distanced lunch
Staff all wearing mask
We had duck breast banh mi sandwich and blackened mahi-mahi sandwich
Both were really excellent
We will definitely be coming back!
CURED has become my meet-up go to for me and my cousin - easy to get to for both of us and always enjoy the great service and food!
High Frequency, We are thrilled that we have become your go to place to meet up. Thanks for taking the time to let us know about your time with us. We hope to see you again soon. Vince Culotta Managing Partner
I’ll server Hillary was excellent.
We had a wonderful server to celebrate a birthday. The restaurant observed all the Covid restrictions and we had plenty of space to ourselves on a Monday night.
I ate at a table on the patio. Several propane heaters warmed the area, so it was comfortable despite the chilly air. My Monte Cristo sandwich was nestled in a savory peach compote and dusted with powdered sugar. It was topped by a fried egg, or scrambled in my case. The mixed fruit I requested to accompany it had fresh, tasty strawberries, blackberries, cantaloupe, blueberries and grapes. The price was reasonable for what was served. I was tempted by the "endless mimosas" for $15 but decided to forego. A lovely, tasty brunch.
Loved our first time experience at Cured. Sean was a great waiter and our food was delicious. Braised greens were excellent and the burgers and bacon wrapped meatloaf were excellent as well.
The Swiss Chard detracted from the otherwise good pork sandwich
The filet was good but undercooked and required additional grilling.
The waitress , Michaila, was professional and cheerful.
Cured is one of the best kept secrets of Columbia, MD. I will definitely be back.
Monday burger night is great. Always a couple of special burgers that never disappoint. Great beer tap selection.
Pleasant experience, but can be a little bit loud.
Great evening with special friends! Perfection 👍
Food was delicious. Still comfortable eating outside using heaters
We ate outside and it was surprisingly quiet. The heaters definitely helped, but I also dressed warmly. Our food was delicious, and service was friendly and responsive.

Our experience started with receipt of a gift card from Cured that had no sender and no amount on it. I called the restaurant to find out who sent it to me and how much the card was for. The woman kept insisting that I needed to ask the sender how much money was on the card. It took me several attempts to explain that I didn't know who the sender was. Then she told me that I had to go to the restaurant to get the answers to my questions. I asked for her manager, who was then able to easily give me the name of the sender as well as the amount. The restaurant was fine and the ambience was very nice. The host was very nice as well as some of the staff. I asked if they had Pinot Grigio wine as I couldn't find it on the menu and the waitress told me that they had Pinot Gris in 18th&21st (adjoining restaurant), which she could bring to me. I asked how much it was and she said about $11.19/glass. It was actually $12.18/glass which is pretty steep and she should have told me. She pushed appetizers and add-ons. The real problem is that there was a table of people that she obviously knew and she spent much of our visit talking at their table. We waited for things like a second drink, dessert menu, and the check. We paid cash so that we could leave since she gave us our check and went back to the other table. What could have been a great visit was just mediocre.
Great nice casual dinner. Brussels for appetizer and 2 yummy sandwiches with side salads. Not cheap but reasonably priced. Awesome service. We'll be back

We had a lovely meal. The room was quiet, Covid keeps the numbers down. The mushroom soup is worth every calorie. I only ask that the chef put the pepper mill down. The ingredients are fresh and well prepared. They don't need overpowering by pepper. Our server was informative and had good suggestions for wine pairing.
Rebecca, Thanks for the fabulous feedback. We are excited to hear that you enjoyed your meals and found our mushroom soup delicious. It is nice to hear that our team provided you with great service and made your visit great. We appreciate the feedback. We hope to see you again soon!
Great drink selection and strong appetizer game. Food was delicious. Service excellent. Sat in the outside area next to busy intersection, but noise was moderate.

One of my new, local favorite places to enjoy a nice meal in downtown Columbia, MD. Absolutely love the two-restaurants-in-one concept and the fact that you can specifically reserve outdoor seating.
