We dined at CAV for Father's Day. We drove from MA to meet our college-aged children living in Providence for the summer. The atmosphere was a comforting, casual elegance. We had a great time laughing all throughout dinner. The food was very good; the rib eye special was outstanding and the wine list had something for everyone across multiple price points. We all thought we'd like to go back for lunch. It would also be on my list for a pre-theater dinner.
We were initially seated at the table closest to the restroom . Very unpleasant . The manager swiftly moved us to a table in the front room which was terrific! Food was delicious save the crab cake. The concept was great, pistachio encrusted, however crabmeat was off. Thank you for a lovely Father’s Day!
We took our husband for Father's Day Brunch and he really enjoyed it! Very nice atmosphere and the food was amazing. Definitely would go again.
CAV was amazing on every level. The food was so delicious, our server was so helpful and nice and we so appreciated his thoughtfulness. The timing of each dish was perfect. The cocktails were great the wine choices were excellent. I can’t say enough good things about CAV. Wish I lived in Providence so we could go more often!!
I hadn't been to this restaurant in years, so I was looking forward to trying it now that they have evolved and/or changed the menu from back then. The ambiance was always wonderful and eclectic. The menu had MANY great selections, which was not the case when I was there last. I had the goat cheese croquettes and the duck confit and my other guests each had a different menu choice, all of which we loved!!!
I will definitely come back again and more often!!!!
CAV never disappoints! I wish I lived closer so I could be there more often.
Nikko was an excellent server. Attentive, and friendly. The Brie appetizer was delish. The Sophia salad was also enjoyed. The seafood with lemon risotto was also delicious. Eclectic decor was interesting. Outdoor seating was available, but too chilly. We came from MA and would definitly would go back.
Have been going to CAV since the late 1980's. I have introduced this restaurant to many folks over the years. The dining experience has always been consistent, except sadly to say this most recent visit.
It was a Tuesday night at 6pm, and there were few other parties. One party we noticed was served before us, although they were seated after us. Our meals did not arrive until after 7pm. Bread took a long time to get to our table. We asked for more bread when the meal came, but had to ask a second time. The ravioli was ordered by 2 in my party, and they both said it was cold. I urged them to say something, but they declined to do so since it took so long in coming.
Overall, slow service on what clearly appeared to be a slow night. Not sure why. We usually go here for both our birthdays, but my husband is hesitant. I told him it was probably was an unusual an off night , but thought you should know since you send this questioner out. Thank you kindly.
We had a fantastic dinner at CAV!
We've already suggested you folks to several friends.
Already planning our next visit!
Food and service were great. Loved the ambiance of the Cav. I felt we were rushed a little. We were there for our Anniversary and in and out in 1 hr and 15 min. Would have liked to linger a little longer.
Wonderful food and great atmosphere! Very cool place!
Lemon risotto exquisite. Only place in area to have blackberry merlot sorbet!!!
Great food, fantastic service (Jonathan was terrific), and a great environment. We couldn’t ask for more.
Beautiful restaurant, the service was great, and the food was excellent. We were there on a Sunday night when the facility was lightly attended so the noise level was no problem.
This was our first time at the CAV and we would definitely recommend it for a dinner date. The restaurant has an eclectic ambiance. Very comfortable and fun. The menu has many choices along with the specials of the day. The food was very good as well as the service. The staff was friendly and helpful.
Great brunch! Plenty of parking, beautiful venue, terrific food.
Wonderfully prepared food. Great cocktails.
Just love everything about this place. The decor and ambiance is very cool. If you have nothing to say to your dinner partner then enjoy looking at all the unique items. We always frequent here before a PPAC show and walk over. Gets you away from the crowds and easy access to the highway after the show.
We ate dinner there on Saturday & then on Monday....and the problem is I cannot decide which dining experience was the BEST. Providence has some really great restaurants & the quality bar is high. CAV far exceeds the bar and then some!
CAV has great food and great ambiance. I’ve been twice and enjoyed it both times.
Cav never lets you down. Great service and amazing food.
Food was delicious and service was even better. Going back soon.
The food and ambiance are one of a kind for the area. Definitely recommend checking it out if you’re on a mission for a unique dining experience!
It was lovely, casual elegance with great service & food!
Meal was incredible from start to finish. Such an eclectic ambiance and our server was both friendly and informative. Had the crab cake app and filet and scallop entrees. Everything was delicious and I wish I saved room for dessert! Would come back in a heartbeat and price is right for the quality of service and good that you receive!
Great night Saturday. Excellent service with Kurt. Have been many times over the years. Never disappointed.
Food was outstanding. Mussels were done perfectly. Baked Brie appetizer was delicious. Loved all of it. Can’t wait to come back.
Consistently great food! Great place to meet after work for a drink , or for a romantic dinner.
Cav is pretty, very pleasant, wide ranging menu. Met two old friends for lunch, and we were well served, well fed and had a thoroughly enjoyable weekday afternoon
We arrived a little early for our reservation, however the sat us right away at a beautiful table in back. He was a delight. We celebrated Mother's day with my wife and our daughter. I never knew this but my wife has been wanting to dine at CAV for years...I was so lucky that I selected CAV without knowing she wanted to go there. We had a great time. The brunch menu was outstanding.
My favorite restaurant in Pvd!
One of the best brunches in the state. Service was attentive and friendly. This is one of my go to spots.
Great brunch. Food outstanding. Lobster scrambled eggs are the best. Good Mimosa’s also👍👍👍
CAV is as charming as the reviews say, and the brunch was delicious. The wait staff are professional and attentive. Highly recommended.
CAV Restaurant never disappoints! I took my mother here for mother's day brunch and the food was delicious, the service was great, and the atmosphere was cozy and elegant. We will definitely be back!
Excellent food, great waiter (thanks again Tom!) beautifully decorated
This was our first time here......for Mother's Day. Food was delicious. We had a wonderful time. We will be back!
We had a great dinner after a show at PPAC. Went to CAV several years ago for brunch and do not know why we never went back but would put this restaurant on our go to list. They do it right.
