Diner Reviews
  • "We found Cava Cava to be great for sharing plates between three of us. We had a wonderful "Trio of meats" appitizer but had to order an extra plate of breads. We shared a great beet salad and finished with a trout dinner entree. All were well prepared and presented."

  • "Our server, Scott, made our evening! He was fun and friendly and attentive! CavaCava has an incredible wine offer........and a tablet to view types of wine with full description, price and food they would be best served with. Wish I had an hour or so just to peruse this gem. What I loved most was the fresh food - fresh ingredients and well prepared. We were a rowdy group, so would love to go back when we're a little more together! But we had fun and Scott let everything just roll off his shoulders!"

  • "If you cannot go to a better restaurant, Cava Cava will suffice for sustenance. Tne service was great. The food was below average. They changed the menu since our last visit. And, this was definitely to the negative side. We won't be going back."

  • "The service was awkward, but thoughtful and responsive. The "special" on the menu, Halibut, was served unattractively and tasted like something from Taco Bell. The Lamb Chops were excellent. There are several outstanding restaurants in Ketchum and this just didn't measure up this time."

  • "We had enjoyed this restaurant's earlier incarnation but the new ownership, chef and diverse menu have really brought Cava Cava to a new level. The roasted beats featured several colorful varieties of beats, quartered and sliced, balanced with a nice vinaigrette. The salad of chopped young kale and the celery root soup looked great. Don't miss the wood smoked mussels which is big enough for an entree. The main selections included some great comfort items like short ribs with root vegetables and a New York Strip but the lamb rack presented with a house made sausage was drizzle of pomegranate sauce offered a great contrast of flavors. The Garganelli with rabbit, white beans and garlic was a beautiful winter dish. Great wine list."

  • "I really enjoyed most of the entrees but some of them were a bit salty for me. We ordered several appetizers and small dishes. Also ordered 2 large entrees. I would suggest not putting so much salt on the food and let the customer add what they need if they like lots of salt. It really ruined some of the dishes. We ordered chocolate panha cotta for dessert and there was salt all over it. Also it was very heavy and not light like panna cotta usually is.The celery root soup, & rabbit was perfect. Trout was salty. The Rosemary cake was dry & dense. We thought it was going to be melt in your mouth texture. The server was great. He was kind, very soft spoken, attentive and a pleasure to have as our waiter. His name if I recall is Scott."

  • "We went with the family , (3-children) we had lamb, short ribs and pizza. The lamb was tasty, short ribs where done well, but the side it came with was terrible, I think it was leeks. The pizza,(cheese, had no other variety) had no flavor and was flour with cheese. When the children all asked for more Parmasan , the server was told to charge us, so he added $5.00 for extra cheese! The olive appetizer also is not tasty. They took amazing olives and ruined them by warming them up!! Overall for a $250.00 dinner, we will never go back, and I cannot in good faith recommend this restaurant!!"
