I was happy to support this endeavor, I think it’s a great idea. Only a very few other patrons were noted and it’s not enough turnover to churn out super fresh food. , I don’t want to critique anything and hope this venue can do well

Expanded menus, better food preparation and an expansion and enhancement of the indoor dining area. On this occasion, brunch, we chose different eggs Benedict preparations and were both very pleased. Now, if only the Dorset Inn itself would resume its wonderful brunch.

The food was excellent with a pleasant presentation including edible flowers. My husband had the lamb sliders which were delicious and I..the traditional eggs Benedict but served with grilled shrimp., and diced potatoes with peppers and onions. You were also given a choice of crab cake or bacon with the eggs. The sauce was very good. The brunch menu had a wide selection of beverages. I had the rose from Tuscany which had a light but crisp taste. It was one of our first indoor dining experiences. Mask were not worn by staff or patrons but the tables are arranged to make one feel comfortable. Our waiter was attentive but not intrusive. We plan on returning.

Unruly children screaming, guests at a long table yelling across the table creating a chaotic level of noise. Several of the food choices on the menu were unavailable by 7:00 pm. Odd for a small intimate restaurant. Wait staff was thin and inattentive at times trying to service the large group, leaving other guests waiting for long periods. This may have been a result of the snow and a thinner than usual staff, but being this was our first visit, we are unable to comment further. Likely will not be back again any time soon.

Food was good/very good but not great, drinks we’re good. Atmosphere excellent. I would highly recommend this for venue brunch or lunch.

Duck confit poutine was deeply satisfying but the flourless chocolate cake was out of this world! I imagine reservations are a must.

A wonderful experience so we will definitely come again.

Duck wings with maple, ginger, soy were our favorite app. They were crispy on the outside and perfectly moist and flavorful inside. The special flatbread was amazing as well. I had bigoli with a oso bucco ragu. Double cut pork chops were a big hit. Apple rum cake, for desert, was outa this world. The cocktails were super delicious and the service throughout the meal was excellent. Highly recommend Curate!

Eggs Benedict ( out of hollandaise poached eggs were way too cooked.) The eggs purgatory were barely cooked. The burger, order medium rare, was burnt to a crisp. Despite being one of only three tables, no one checked on our meal and we were left alone. Burger was taken off the menu. We could blame the labor shortage, but we were one of three tables. Maybe 8 diners in the place. There were two servers plus kitchen staff. I’ve handled more people than that in my house. Sad… such a pretty setting. Would have loved a nice meal.
