Cure feels like a French bistro! The food is very good and they have special menus on Thursdays with emphasis on a French region.

We have been back to cure monthly for their Thursday night Price fix and wine pairing dinners. The menu is always eccentric and exciting, and creative. Every meal has been truly wonderful, and the wine pairings are great. The waitress is so knowledgeable about the wines and her demeanor in instruction is delightful. I would recommend this restaurant to those... More

We had high hopes for Cure based on the pedigrees of the people running the show. The cocktails we had were great; off to a good start. For starters we got the foie gras and bone marrow along with the beef tartare. The first was more like liver flavored butter. Very disappointing. The beef tartare was better with a very... More

Someone told us to stop here while we were at the market. We stopped in for coffee, but heard the bar scene and food is great. Very rustic and authentic place.

Been to France many times, this little gem in Rochester is a wonderfully authentic reminder of a French cafe. We had the prix fixe special and the triple flight paired wines, it all came together beautifully. Great, attentive service, and at a reasonable price. Next time we're in Rochester we're coming back.

I like to review restaurants after visiting at least twice. My husband and I recently had dinner with another couple and had a great time! The bar is well stocked, the bartender was very personable and knowledgeable of all liquors, and we found all staff to be very attentive. Everything we ate was amazing and fresh! Highly recommend the charcuterie... More

I've been several times. Last time went with 5 family members, had the pre planned meal with wine pairing. The food was unique and tasty. I'd say the cocktails were really special. Not exactly easy to find, especially if your not used to the city, but that's part of the charm. It's really for adults who like a relaxed atmosphere... More
