Diner Reviews
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Food was good. Service was very poor. We waited an hour for our entree even though it wasn't that busy. When it came the waitress forgot to give us spoons and after asking her for it we still had to wait 15-20 minutes to get them. By then we had enough and just left"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Planned this as a birthday dinner for my wife, with a total of 7 people. We were greeted and seated right away in the outdoor patio. Everything was fantastic, including the weather, the ambiance, service and food. Service was prompt and friendly. The food was hot and very tasty and the ambiance of the garden was the icing on the cake. I would definitely go back for dinner as long as the weather cooperated with an outdoor affair. My only slight disappointment was that with my wife being Greek and this restaurant located in Astoria I expected a bit more of Greek flair but, this did not put a damper on our overall experience."

  • "I reviewed several web sites before deciding on Cavo. The reviews were mixed. The experience exceeded my expectations. Despite what I heard, the food was good and the staff attentive. Throw in the belly dancers and we had a great time. I would strongly recommend Cavo to my friends"
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "I made a reservation noted ill like outdoor seating when I arrived to the restaurant I was told to sit outside there is a 1 hour wait due to outdoor sitting is first come first service even though that isn't stated anywhere nor did they reach out to me to let me know that there was no outdoor sitting upon putting in for the request. They were rude about It and said either wait or I can leave so making this reservation was pointless. The food is amazing so we stayed the ambience is beautiful and the waiter was great but besides that the hostess and manager were extremely rude and had no care in the world."

  • "Valet is clueless..saw them pull up 2 cars and no one got in..wrong cars! They asked a woman to find her own key on the board...and then lost my husbands car! They couldn't remember where it was parked! My husband took his key from the board, walked around the block to find his own car! Left a very bad taste in our mouths,"

  • "I took my girlfriend out on a date here. Very nice restaurant. Horrible service. My waitress didn't even pay attention to us. The food was less than appetizing."
    Dined on 6/22/2014
  • "This used to be a great Greek restaurant. Now only the appetizers are Greek-ish, while the rest of the menu has dissappeared to a very limited bland american style one."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My Fiancé and I met some friends there. It was my first time, not theirs. Beautiful space, good service and food was decent although his seafood pasta was much better than my short ribs. The only real negative was they had a guy playing guitar and singing outside which would've been nice except it was so LOUD we couldn't carry on a conversation at our own table without YELLING to each other which in my opinion, completely ruined the entire atmosphere. Either lose the entertainment or make him turn it down. It was completely unnecessary to be that loud."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "Went out for dinner with the girls, got apps and drinks. Fried calamari (chickpea batter, which is always a great touch), olives and feta (basic but good), and a fresh watermelon/feta salad. A couple of the drinks were watered down, not really worth $13 each. But the service was attentive and the host very pleasant as well. It's nice to be able to segue right into the bar/dancing area after dinner, and the outdoor area is always nice."
    Dined on 5/31/2014
  • "Food was amazing and atmosphere very chic! Able to accommodate our change in reservation. Made perfect for a very special occasion. Manager was visable and helped out in all areas. A+"
    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I dinner for 4 with a prefixe menu should not take 2 and 1/2 hours. We waited 20 minutes for the check and that was flagging down the waitress after she walked by us 5 times."

  • "Food is very tasty and restaurant decor is impressive."
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Haven't been here in a couple months and I felt that the service was awfu. Our waitress didn't come over to us at all. We had to flag her down everytime! My ravioli was hard, but the meatballs were still good."

  • "I am glad we celebrated our birthday here. The food was great the service was amazing and overall just a great experience. It looks like it can be very busy at night after dinner with the club scene."
    Dined on 4/11/2014
  • "I've been going to Cavo for dinner and the party scene for 10 years now. i've always relied on going there and knowing the food and ambiance would be great! i'm really disappointed to say that the food was bad! we ordered the salmon and it was served partially frozen. even after the waitress brought it back from being cooked for a bit more time, the salmon still tasted awful! we were 3 for dinner and also ordered spare ribs and pasta with lobster, both of those were over cooked. the flavors were ok, but the dish it self was just not good over all. the portions were small. the waitress was really great and tried her hardest to provide us with great service so that made a ton of difference. she removed the salmon from our bill."
    Dined on 4/5/2014
  • "Delicious food, a glass of wine and great company is the way to go..."
    Dined on 3/28/2014
  • "Wish I knew that only the bar area is open for business on Sundays. Lack of ambience definitely took away from our dining experience. Will return but, only when whole restaurant area is available."
    Dined on 3/23/2014
  • "Has been a couple years since I visited this restaurant and I must say I enjoyed it as much as the first time. The food was great, music was on point and a great crowd to mingle and dance with. I can't wait to visit again."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "I love this place! The food is always amazing! Not once have I been disappointed! Great for any special occasion! Romantic and family oriented. Good place to go on a date.,"
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "My fiancée , I and my parents went on a double date to celebrate our engagement. I have dined at Cavo before everyone else it was their first time. They had an amazing time! From the drinks to the olive oil dip to the meals finishing with dessert ; it was perfect! We are thinking about having other events there to create more memories. The staff was great and showed excellent team work. We will definitely be coming back."
    Dined on 3/15/2014
  • "It was a birthday dinned. They called to confirm. Asked me on a phone if I would want to have a candle. I said yes. At the restaurant they forgot about it. After my friend reminded a waiter about the candle, the waiter brought it, but with an attitude."
    Dined on 3/7/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Food was good. Portions were nice size. Staff was good. Bathroom could be a little better."

  • "Just one problem with the car service, any thing else deserve 5 star. Thank you"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "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!"
    Dined on 2/1/2014
  • "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."
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "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"
    Dined on 1/18/2014
  • "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 !"

  • "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."

  • "from the front door to the back garden, cavo is the place to be. Excellent service, food and dancing!"
    Dined on 12/4/2013
  • "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."
