A word from Cavo
Chef Armand of Dish du Jour Magazine wrote, “Cavo is without a doubt, an extravagantly designed beauty of a restaurant…at Cavo you can wine and dine the night away in the true traditions of a Mediterranean vacation and lifestyle.”

Simply horrible food and horrible
service. And the waiters charged themselves way too much TIP. The restaurant doesn't have a passion. For food simply wants to take $ out of your pocket."

Food was good. Portions were nice
size. Staff was good. Bathroom could be a little better."

The best feture is the music and
dance. Food could be made better, maybe it was the dishes we had that needed more flavor. Definitely a fun place."

This place is amazing! My friends
and I came here to celebrate my birthday, and we had the best time - the food was delicious (loved the ravioli and the mango sorbet!) and the dj played some great music, a nice mix of hip hop, reggaeton and house. I highly recommend this place!"

Even though we assured the host
that the remaining 3 of our 8 guests were not far away in the car in traffic, they refused to seat us. When we were final seated, they walked us 10 feet away where the heat was so intense we asked to be moved - this was after they said they could not adjust it. Then suddenly they were able to adjust it, so we felt duped. We ordered wine, a 2009 vintage on their menu. When they returned they offered a 2011, and were a little taken back when we asked how much for the less quality in which we received no answer. We then wanted to order several appetizers before ordering the entrees' and we were told they must be ordered together, which made an easy thing a bit harder. Too many rules and no flexibility. Not happy"

The food has wonderful flavors on
familiar foods! It has two rooms with bars in different locations that are large and comfortable. The belly dancers give the place an added boost !"

We were seated in empty area of
restaurant. Bright lights, cold. Was not going to eat dinner with our coats on, so we left. Went to our old reliable restaurant in Astoria."

From the moment you walked in you
were greeted in an attentive and pleasant way giving a very good first impression. The dining area was cozy and nicely decorated. The host even accommodated us with a table that we requested. The waiter staff were all attentive and friendly. They even put up with my stupid jokes. lol The food was very good and nicely presented. Overall I would definitely come back and recommend to others."

I had great time with the people I
came with and the waitress was very nice. The food tasty. The portions of some dishes were very little for the price paid."
Dined on 11/23/2013
Was looking forward to trying this
restaurant but came away disappointed. We continually had to search for our waiter to order a drink. We were seated on the bar side and it was only half full so we wondered where he was off to that we would only see him about every 25-30 minutes. I ordered the Branzino that is served whole and what I receved was a fish half the size of what I have received in other restaurants. There was maybe 3-4oz of the fish actually edible. Additionally no sides except a small portion of diced tomatoes. We were a party of three and what another person ordered for their meal he said after I'm glad I was not that hungry. The best part of the night was my wife enjoying the Saganaki being lit."

Food was great and the surprise
belly dancers were an excellent add-on. This place was a fun scene but noisy for our late dinner on a Friday night. Would recommend this place as a great start to a night out."

Service Could have Been Better, N

We had reservations for an
anniversary. When we arrived the dining side was not busy, and the bar had a few patrons. We were shown to our table by the hostess, however the seat was not one you would expect with a reservations, especially with how un-busy it was. We were far from the belly-dancer, seated in a corner by a window on a high table. Once we were seated we were given menus by a busboy, who didn't say a word. We kept getting passed by busboys, waiters and other staff. We waited for at least an offer of water, which never came. As we sat there we noticed how unnoticed we were becoming. After a few more minutes of waiting to give them the benefit of the doubt, we left; without a word from any of the staff we walked by on the way out."

This place has been around for
awhile now and has always kept up with being good, clean, and fun. Everyone is so accommodating...the drinks are to die for and overall just a great time."
Dined on 9/8/2013
I ordered a steak with a baked
potato, along with creamed spinach. The strip steak was decent. The potato had some yogurt based topping that was sour and pretty distasteful. I asked for just a plain baked potato. The creamed spinach was inedible, as I simply was unable to chew it into smaller pieces."
Dined on 9/7/2013
My wife and I went to Cavo for the
first time this past Friday for our anniversary and we were completely blown away. The service was outstanding with both the owner and the chef coming around and talking to all the diners. The food was without a doubt the best I have had in a long time. I had the strip steak and my wife had the duck special and both were simply amazing. I cannot do Cavo justice with just this review. Eat there, I promise you will be delighted!"

Few Food selection but food is
good.. Great ambiance . Exelent spot for especial ocations."
Dined on 8/25/2013
It was my first time trying Cavo,
after MANY friends suggesting I do so, and I was blown away. Everything from the lovely hostess greeting me and my guest at the front door to the manager coming personally to our table to thank us for choosing Cavo. Our waitress ( believe her name was Fama) was by far the most pleasant and knowledgeable waitress I have ever had. We tried their twist on Carpaccio at her suggestion and it was amazing ( a middle eastern cured beef and burrata .. AMAZING) as well as their tuna tartar. After dinner we stayed for a few drinks at one of the 3 Beautiful Bars they had available. Great drinks!! I could keep going but honestly one of the most pleasant nights I have had in a LONG time."

It was a perfect sunday night and
the food was exactly what we wanted. Fresh fish-great flavors. Cavo honored our request to be seated outside."
Dined on 8/10/2013
Their outside "garden" is
beautiful. Food not good. Their version of "pastichio" was a soupy meat dish, definetly not what pastichio is supposed to be. Relayed to the Manager and he replied that he didn't know what it was supposed to look like (the restaurant is in Astoria!!). Asked for onions with the hamburger, the chef said he couldn't do that! The "lobster roll" was a teeny bit of lobster wrapped in pita and not tasty at all. The "mac & cheese" appetizer tasted microwaved and had no flavor at all. The only decent dish was the "skirt steak". Polite service but took 10 minutes to bring a glass for a beer while everyone else had their drinks."
Dined on 7/31/2013
We will be back!!! This is one of
the best in a long time... They have a great menu with all kinds of stuff and some very good classic Greek dishes too... The service is excellent I would put it up there with some of the top in the city (i.e. Mylos, per se, Gotham bar and Grill). The food is top-notch, they had the freshest oysters I have ever had, and I have oysters everywhere I go!!! I highly recommend Cavo to anyone venturing out to L.I.C./Astoria area. And if you are into nightlife they transform into a cool lounge/club with DJs and all."

Great place with a beautiful

Cavo has it all: delicious and
innovative cuisine, a magnificent ambiance, both indoors and out, and superb service. The outdoor dining experience is wonderful, and I highly recommend it. I can't wait to go back soon!"

Had a nice romantic dinner with my
boyfriend. The food was delicious and the waiter was very friendly and helpful. And my boyfriend is a foodie, money is no object for him when it comes to eating. I'm extremely lucky to have him."

Amazing food/service and Ambience!"

This is my second time at Cavo's
and I haven't been disappointed so far. Our server was attentive, gracious and unobtrusive. We were a party of four and were seated in the lounge after we declined to be seated outside (it was a very hot evening). Food arrived promptly and was delicious. My only caveat was that the restaurant may have had power issues on the evening we went. The air-conditioning was barely adequate indoors, but a request to our server to make it cooler resulted in a welcome drop in temperature in time for our meal."
Dined on 5/31/2013
I would say the food is pricey for
what you get, so I did not feel like I got a lot of value out of my meal. The best part about the meal was the atmosphere and decor of the restaurant. And the outdoor garden is a great place for an after dinner drink. I probably will not go back for dinner, but would go back to have drinks/appetizers in the outdoor garden."
Dined on 6/1/2013
We were very disappointed when the
waiter told us there was no Retsina on the wine menu, that this was a "modern Greek" restaurant. The food other than the Greek salad was hardly Greek. There were too many non-Greek dishes, and I think that the diners were there for the "scene" rather than the food, which was just OK."
Dined on 6/1/2013
I had been there few time
before Variety if Greek and other interesting dishes The menu is pretty smal but you'll find something interesting Sometimes a just order different appetizers and no main course Enjoy Xo"
Dined on 5/24/2013
Perfect for celebrating an
occasion or if you just want a lively atmosphere for a yummy night out. The food arrives fairly quickly & the service is great as well. The staff works very hard to please their customers. The food is creative & consistently excellent. Cocktails are delish as well. If youre in the mood to dance & party then stay after dinner because this place gets hot with awesome up to date music & dancing! Love this place, will coem back again & again!"

Wonderful food and outdoor garden
- we loved it and will return!"
Dined on 5/12/2013
over price. change of menu. the
choice of main course is not available. pushy, didn't let my kids order from kids menu, only for 12 years under. for $50 3 course fix meal, didn't serve coffee or tea liked it listed on the menu. and in additional small glass of coke with over half cup is ice, charge for $3. on the bill, they calculated tips for you. how you know if your service deserves that much. very disappointed."

Well, I booked Cavo for Mother's
Day brunch after having read rave reviews of its prior brunches. The ambiance was great! The outdoor setting was exotic, to say the least. The food was wonderful, albeit, diminutive in proportion for a man my size (6'4", 220 lbs.). I was not impressed when weighing what I consumed against the pre fixe price of $49.99. In fact, after brunch, I went around the corner and bought more food due to my unsatisfied hunger. Overall, the experience was nice! My wife and children enjoyed it, even though we all shared our common disappointment at the proportions served. Apart from its lavish decor, I would not recommend Mother's Day brunch at Cavo for a family with a healthy appetite."
