Cava Mezze - DC Ratings and Reviews
Cava is delicious. I have been there for lunch several times and was never disappointed, but this was my first time for dinner. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We ordered the dip sampler, brussel sprouts, and the chicken and egg noodles. It was enough for two people plus we brought home leftovers, which heated up just as well the next day. The wait staff was attentive and overall the food was delicious.
We didn't know it was half of bottles of wine, but we took advantage of that! Our waitress was terrific - very friendly and responsive. We enjoyed choosing a variety of veggie dishes and a couple meats - it's a good way for everyone to taste a little something - we got the dish where they set the cheese on fire (very fun!), lamb balls, cauliflower, beet salad, and spanakopita (really good!). You'll have fun when you go!
Cava Mezze is one of my favorite places to go for brunch. They have a large selection of small plates for bottomless brunch and the price for it is reasonable, especially for DC. The food is really good and the drinks are as well. It's a good spot for lunch and dinner as well, and during the week it can make for a nice date spot. I highly recommend it!
Wish we had more time here. They put the closing as 11pm, however they were closing at 10pm. The food was especially yummy and very fast service. I was visiting DC and catching up with a friend who had never been there either We really enjoyed the authentic Greek tapas! I will definitely return on my next visit to the area!
Cava Mezze was great for a casual work lunch. They had a set lunch menu with 3 courses for $15, which was very reasonable. The food is delicious. Brussel Sprouts, hummus, cauliflower, and meatballs are all my favorites. I haven't been for dinner, but I would guess the food is just as delicious and the cocktails were handcrafted. Try it out!
I have rarely had a reserved table ready when I arrive here, but if you're okay with waiting for your reservation a little bit the food here is consistently really good. Some particular dishes I go back to most visits, but it's worth branching out and trying some different things as well. They have a great platter if you have a group of people that have never been or just three hungry people who like to try some of their staple tapas dishes.
I am Greek and I love CAVA. The food is cooked traditionally but each dish is their own unique version and the food is just fantastic. Something to note is that the portions are usually for 2 or 3 people and the style of the restaurant is to order multiples dishes and share.
Cava is a great place for brunch on the weekends! All you can eat for $35 and mimosas for 25 cents, can't beat that. The food is unique and delicious, the service is good, and their drinks are great! Lots of tables enjoying themselves at this neighborhood hot spot.
Delicious small plates, especially the zucchini. I am a big eater and the "pick three" lunch menu was plenty of food for lunch, and at a good price also. I ate early so the dining room was quiet. It might be on the noisy side if the room is full. It's an easy walk from the Eastern Market metro. Good for large groups also.
Every course from this restaurant was a delight. From the shared appetizers to the dessert, the food was some of the best we had in DC. The staff was attentive and there was plenty of space for our group of 5. It was also easy to hear and the ambiance was perfect. Not a single complaint and hope to dine there every time I'm in DC.
