Really lovely little bar. Staff were very attentive, food was great. It's a little pricey but great place to meet friends. Bit loud if you are on a date!

Nice neighborhood joint
Cava is a small restaurant on the side street, staff are very friendly and eager to please. Wine list and menu are all Spanish. There experience is charming, like eating at a sidewalk tapas place in Madrid. Nothing over the top or mind-blowing, and it's not particularly inexpensive. A couple of drinks and some food will probably set you back $60 each with tax and tip. Just a nice place to get some good food and try some nice wine.

A hidden gem
There are so many restaurants on Amsterdam avenue that it is easy to miss this spot on 80th a few steps from the avenue but after living in UWS for a year I finally paid a visit to Cava bar for a relaxed dinner. The staff were extremely friendly and introduced themselves and asked our names. The menu has a lot of flavorful options and the staff do a great job of explaining the choices.
We ordered the scallops and plantain stuffed beef and they were great. Get a couple of sides if you are hungry too!
Overall experience was very positive. It's a nice little spot and I'll definitely go back.

This place is great!
Had our first date here, ended up getting married so we had a tiny wedding dinner here, too. They were so gracious to us, it's such a cozy fun place! Food and drinks are good, too!

Authentic Dominican food
My wife who is from San Juan said that their mofongo was one of the best she has ever eaten in her entire life. She gave the food there 5 stars and we can't wait to return in the near future.

Charming local w good food service
Cute place. Good food. Friendly staff. Nice wine bar atmosphere. They were sold out of several wines though and not every white they had was very cold

Cool Neighborhood Wine Bar
Recently visited Cava and enjoyed glass of sparkling wine and empanadas. Got a great window seat that looked out on to the street and it was lovely. The service was excellent. We were attended to as soon as we sat down. We chose from a small wine list that seemed well edited. The small bites/tapas offered were a mix of american and latin. Our hostess told us about the emphasis on Dominican cooking. We selected a trio of empanadas: beef, shrimp and chicken which were all delicious. They were cut in half so that my companion and I could taste each. Presentation was both clean and appetizing. Prices were relatively inexpensive which made it even more appealing. The perfect neighborhood place for a small bite or after work drinks.
