Greek
Prepare to indulge in unique Greek-inspired dishes, skillfully crafted by talented Chef Dimitri Moshovitis. All dishes are served mezze style—in small plates, but with portions large enough to share. Cava’s mezze-style dining inspires conversation and laughter at the table. The dim candle-lighting and black and white family photos adorning Cava’s charming brick interior walls creates a welcoming atmosphere. A dining experience at Cava is incomplete without a glass of wine. So pair your meal with one of our upscale, yet affordable wines.

Food was pretty good but didn't knock my socks off. Seafood items (scallop risotto and grilled octopus) were probably the best, with the spicy lamb slider also making a solid performance.

The food was good and the server was attentive, but one order took over 20 minutes longer than the other 5 orders. It was a salad.

Greek food elevated as small plates meant to be shared. As a Greek American I despise ordinary Greek fare. But don’t confuse simple with ordinary. Here they have taken fresh, simple ingredients and prepared them well. Their creamy feta is a new interesting twist. The lamb chops were outstanding, the spanakopita had the perfect balance of phyllo and filling and the mini gyros were delicious—the meat was obviously prepared in the kitchen and nothing like the mass produced fast food seen on take out boards everywhere.

The food was great but the service was lacking. Sit upstairs on the roof deck, relatively quite but still outside and great to enjoy in good weather.

We had reservation for outside; but they were able to move us in when it looked like it was going to rain as we got there. They had huge portion of wall open, so fresh air was coming in constantly. Food was delicious, we got tzatiki, chicken schwarma, falafel, and saganaki. Drinks were fantastic. Also great service, of course

It was a fantastic experience all around.
My family was visiting and we went for brunch. My husband and I each ordered something different from the three sections and we sharded each dish, so together we had six dishes. All of the food was delicious, it was fantastic to try all the many different wonderful items. We will go again.

Cava is the perfect atmosphere for a relaxed brunch environment! Me and my friend sat outside, our server was accommodating and not intrusive. The food was delicious, the mimosas were boozy (25 cents) and we were not rushed. I can not wait to return!

Cava mezze was wonderful! Great ambience and even better food! We really enjoyed the lamb chops, the lollipop chicken, and the octopus. The entree plates are a bit on the smaller side.. we got 3 entrees (plus an appetizer) for 2 people and it was perfect! Highly reccomend this place! Will definitely be going back!

Our server, Victor was excellent, as well as the food, except the calamari, could not figure out what Cava was serving for calamari. We have been coming to Cava for years, but this was the first had calamari like this. We were at Cava last month and had real calamari, please return to what you have been serving.

It was me & my dates first time there & we will definitely be back! We loved the food & the value that we got for the food that was served. It was amazing! Only complaint is that the music was too loud on the upstairs patio so we had to talk louder than usual to be able to hear one another but other than that, everything else was great!!!

Brunch is three courses and they let us know they send food out as it’s ready, however every time a course came out my dish always took the longest to arrive even though for the second course three of us ordered the same dish but they only brought out two. 20 mins later I pointed it out to the server and he quickly brought my food. Seemed very chaotic and the food quality was not good. Very disappointing experience.
