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.

Complimentary appetizer biscuits came late, eventually got them after finishing entree
Had to send entree (chicken pita with scrambled eggs) back because it had been clearly sitting and got cold
Fly found in my cocktail
Waiter wasn’t terrible but everything was a struggle, would not go back

My go to spot for Greek tapas. I've never been disappointed with a food selection. Service is typically better than it was during my last visit: server only stopped by the table twice. We had to flag him down to order food and any time we needed anything

Perfect place for an early family dinner prior to attending the Evening Parade at Marine Barracks, D.C. Rooftop seating for six under excellent weather contributed to an overall very good customer experience.

I have had nothing but positive experiences at this restaurant. I recently had brunch here with two of my closest friends from out-of-town and they thought the food was incredible. They said they can’t wait to come back during their next visit to DC! Thanks for always being tasty Cava Mezze!

Service was not that great. Had to ask for our food multiple times and our waitress didn’t seem to know much, her answer for every question was “I don’t know/I’m not sure” and never followed up. We waited about 45 minutes for our last “course” which was just a parfait and Brussels sprouts. Food was not that great, especially after waiting extended times between dishes. I can understand if it was busy but it was not. Mimosas were the only good thing, food was definitely not worth the price point.

Four of us went to this restaurant for a Sunday brunch and enjoy the $35 special which included three courses and mimosas at $.25 each. It was a great value, the food was tasty, the restaurant was buzzing, and the servers were terrific. Not all of our food actually arrived, and the order the food was delivered was somewhat desultory. But overall I would definitely return and recommend this restaurant to others.

We’ve been twice in the past month or so and while the food was fine the service leaves so much to be desired. Won’t be back to this location until they work the fully reopening kinks out.

We came to celebrate my friends birthday. It was everything, from the Mimosas to the sangrias. Gideon (our server) made sure we had a good time. My friends had the French toast, banana fritters, chicken and waffles and zucchini fritter. I had the zucchini fritter, amazing Brussels sprouts and the refreshing lamb Benedict.

This restaurant is solid. You must always get the flaming cheese, the lamb chops, and the Brussel sprouts. We went recently for dinner, but it is great place for Brunch too. Shared plates is a great way to taste a little of everything - which I always enjoy.

Had a wonderful and unexpectedly decadent meal at Cava Mezze. We had the absolutely delicious watermelon salad to start, and each dish after was just as good. Very nice server who didn’t hover (love that) but was available when we needed. I can’t wait to go again and can highly recommend this wonderful restaurant to anyone looking for a special meal or just an excellent dining experience.

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.

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.
