Let your server guide you and you won't be disappointed. Every dish was a delightful surprise. Sit at the bar and see all the action or a get a table in the back for a quieter experience.

I have been here half a dozen times... I have some regular favorites I always order... The eggplant with honey, the octopus and the spinach are musts. The service is usually very good but I'm not sure why they don't bring out bread and olive oil to round out the tapas as a matter of course. We ordered the albondigas... More

This restaurant is absolutely fabulous. I've never been to a place with so many different varieties of dishes, and all the ones I've sampled are fantastic. You can order tapas-style dishes to share or entrees (you can share these as well). My wife and I have been several times. We usually make a reservation for the early afternoon and spend... More

The tapas at Curate are special. There is always something new and old favorites, too. The thinly sliced eggplant soaked in milk then lightly battered and fried and drizzled with honey and garnished with fresh rosemary is an unforgettable treat for the palete. Sangria made for you at your table is a visual delight and delicious, too. When we have... More

I was there with a large group (about 25) and we were in the basement. The atmosphere was fine but it was difficult to have a cocktail prior to sitting as there was not much room. I liked most of the food. I was unable to eat a few things since I am gluten free. My favorite may have been... More

By far our best meal of the trip. Everything we tried was excellent. The gambas, meatballs, sautéed spinach, charcuterie with a selection of hams, a chess selection, paella, two asparagus dishes, an eggplant and pepper dish, and an appetizer similar to bruschetta with a hard cheese (Spanish name) plus something else. Top it off with a chocolate dessert with orange... More

WOW.....this place is amazing. Loved everything about it. Got to sit at the bar and watch the chefs in action. WOW such precision and care goes into the food. Service was outstanding. Tastes were mind blowing. But make sure you have a reservation for weekend or no way you are getting in. I can see why though it was truly... More

We thoroughly enjoyed our visit to this restaurant. The sangria was amazing and mixed at our table. The food mirrors our experience in Spain...very authentic. We ordered fried eggplant w/honey and rosemary, lamb kabobs w/Moroccan spices, the tortilla (Spanish omelette), sausage w/white beans, crema catalana (similar to creme brulee). All was delicious.

My wife and I had an incredible dinner at Curate. We made a reservation well in advance, which is recommended. The restaurant is located on one of the main streets well within walking distance of shops and hotels. Our waiter was very friendly and helpful. There is a good selection of Spanish wines including a good number by the glass.... More
