a return to capitol hill from the suburbs was well worth the drive to visit an old favorite! loved the new octopus dish and the grilled meatballs were as good as ever! the dips sampler was really good BUT the portion was way smaller than it used to be... our server, Jonathan, was outstanding - some of the best service we have had in a LONG time - very attentive and friendly but not over bearing. our kids devoured everything too which always makes for a relaxing evening out. can't wait to get back!
Great food. Fantastic drinks!
Always love the food and the 25 cent mimosas. I always bring friends here when they are in town
The all you can eat brunch options are lackluster compared to what was offered a few years back. Love this place but will not return for brunch
Found this place as we were staying in the neighbourhood on holiday. It was so good we’ve been back two more times. The food is great as is the service and ambience. It’s busy every night and has happy hour at the bar between 5-7pm during the week. If we lived here we would go at least once a week. Cauliflower dish to die for, as well as Spanikopita, lamb sliders and a great cheese dish that they set fire to. Great selection of Greek wines too.
We arrived a bit early and the host was very accommodating in seating us early on a busy Saturday night. We were a party of 5 (Girls' Weekend) and they're set up for sharing plates, so we could all share and try a variety of dishes, which was all excellent. One in our party is Gluten Free and there isn't much on the menu that is designated for that, which limited her, but otherwise it was a very good experience.
Nice food. Great service. Old-fashioneds hit the spot. Lots of different tastes. Beet salad was well done. Try the mussels and any lamb dish. Enjoyable meal.
Great food yet again at Cava. This is hands down one of my favorite restaurants in DC and the food never disappoints. My current favorites are: the Sauganaki, chicken souvlaki, lamb meatballs, smoked salmon, spanakopita, brussel sprouts, opa opa shrimp, and the crazy feta dip. I have taken numerous family and friends here over the years and it is always fabulous food!
All of the dishes were good. This was my first time here for dinner (I'd been previously for brunch) and I plan to return for brunch sometime.
Excellent food prep and service. It is a bit crowded and noisy but not terrible. Definitely would go back.
Good food, but not GREAT for the price.
We went here for our anniversary and we were visiting from NY. The food was some of the best Greek food we have ever had! The gyros were so good, we ordered a 2nd plate. The service was amazing.
Loved this place! So quiet for a Tuesday and a great date spot. HH was so reasonable and perfect.
I have been to Cava Mezze with girlfriends for brunch, on a lunch date, and most recently I brought my children for brunch. The staff is always welcoming and helpful. I was very happy to see that my children were welcomed and spoiled just as much as I have been on my previous visits. The food is always delicious and the craft cocktails are seasonal and delicious! I HIGHLY recommend Cava Mezze!
Enjoyed from the moment we walked in and were greeted so happily, the servers were very pleasant, and we loved the food.
The food was good as always, but the service was a bit disjointed on this visit.
Food was awesome and the roof top is great. Host staff is snooty and managers.....well let just hope u dont need them.
Favorite place for dinning and also for brunch.Food is amazing
I didn’t give it an excellent just because the shrimp in the shrimp and grits dish was not deveined. You can see the grey gunk on the back of the shrimp. I told our server and I watched her take it to her manager and he told her “ that’s how it comes we don’t go in and do anything extra!” I was disgusted that he didn’t think cleaning shrimps is important for a dish.
Other than that the server was awesome.
The servers there were helpful and kind, and the ambiance on the rooftop on a cooler summer evening was great! Must try ordering their Moscow mule and the corn. Those were our favorites!
As a frequent customer, it pains me to say I'm unlikely to go back anytime soon. It was a super-quiet night, but service was absolutely atrocious. Our waiter was absent for long periods of time, food wasn't delivered (and dishes that were probably ours came out of the kitchen, circulated aimlessly among the few tables, and then went back into the kitchen), drinks were forgotten - and he didn't seem to realize a single thing was wrong. Nor did the manager, for that matter, even though we were there longer than several other table around us that were seated after us...and it's not like we were lingering over food. But hey the saganaki was good.
Went for the endless brunch - not a bad deal and that food is delicious!!!
Excellent brunch service. Speedy and satisfying, and a gentle reminder of how busy the restaurant was (they needed the table) was conveyed professionally. Bravo
Delicious plates. Pro tip: order the next plate as soon as one is delivered to maximize brunch time!
Cava Mezze is a MUST on Barrack's Row! Came on a Saturday night with a group of 6. Such a fun vibe, a bonus if you get the Saganaki! The shared plates are a pretty decent size for the price. Not to mention, the service was just as great as the food and drinks! We loved everything we ordered - the street corn, crispy chicken sliders, & spanakopita especially stood out. They also treated us to some amazing little hot donuts at the end. Will definitely be back, next time for brunch!
The food at Cava was outstanding. The three of us split a bunch of dishes and were able to find something for everyone. Especially with a couple of vegetarians, there were plenty of options and no one left hungry. The flaming cheese is a must try!!! As are the chicken lollipops.
Another great feature is the selection of Greek wines. The server recommended one that my friends really enjoyed.
Good food, perfect size portions. Everyone enjoyed their meals. My only complaint is the timing of the food.
A family favorite, Cava Mezze never disappoints. The food is why you come and the ambiance and service live up too. Its not cheap... but for the quality of food.. its a good value.
Loved the food at Cava Mezze and the service was fantastic! Our waiter was so engaging and very knowledgeable. We will be back!
We had some of the most creative and delicious foods. Whipped feta! Street corn! Scallops! Watermelon feta salad! Moscow mule on draft! Loved the atmosphere!
Jonathan made the experience really nice. He gave great recommendations and was really friendly! We were happy to have him as our server.
Our family was celebrating our niece’s graduation.
My parents were in town, so we went to Cava Mezze for a nice dinner. We loved all of our dishes, and the service was very good and friendly. The food came out quickly and was delicious. We sat outside because it was a bit too loud inside. Definitely a more energetic feel, but not perfect if you want a quieter place.
Will definitely be back.
The service staff was friendly and accommodating. The food was delicious.
Service seems to have gone down considerably, food served - Spanakopita and the grilled octopus seemed cold. They have lost the touch they had when I last visited a few years ago.
Every bite is delicious! Intense flavors, huge variety of choices, many veggie and seafood options, plus great wine and cocktail list. Spanakopita is some of the best I've ever had. Can't go wrong.
Went there for dinner with a baby and a diner with dairy and soy allergies. As always, the food was great, we felt welcomed (and were not the only ones with a baby), and they really went above above and beyond on the allergy issues, even tweaking several dishes so everybody could eat them. A wonderful meal here, as always.
Gyro, lamb chops and beet salad were great
Of servings were small although the food was good but there was an up charge of $2.00 for 6 slices of cucumbers for someone who could not eat bread and that seemed ridiculous
I had a great experience. Food and service was amazing.
