Cava Mezze - DC
Book your next event with us
The food is amazing, you definitely get a bang for your buck! Mimosas were great, glass was always kept full. The rooftop was great to eat on as well! Get there early or make a reservation!
Food was as good as advertised
Last minute looking for quick walk to dinner. They had one table left outside and we were promptly seated and served some great bread and spicy sauce. Good menu and everyone picked something they liked. Reasonable priced bottle of wine was great.
Our server Will was awesome. The manager was great. Food and drinks were on point and made for an amazing brunch. No complaints at all.
It’s was good, we had to look for our waitress a couple times and I felt it to be a tad bit pricey but the food was good and the ambiance was great.
The rooftop was a fun environment, food was spot on, the bill came out lower than expected, especially for DC. The babaganoush was delish!
Cava Mezze maintains total adherence to COVID-19 safety protocols which makes dining there so comfortable and the rooftop is an entire mood and the heat lamp keeps you toasty without overheating. Food is always consistent.
I had an excellent time! Truly one of the best brunch deals in DC.
Food and service was great. Forgot the name of the gentleman who served us but he was also great!
We were sat on the rooftop for open seating and it was semi-open for air flow, the covered bar area - not so much. I also didn’t feel like we were 6ft from the next table - the guy sitting behind my friend was max 2, maybe 3 feet away. The food was good, my friend and I ordered 1 a la cart Meal for brunch each and my meal came out a good 5 mins before hers. It would’ve been better to have been served together. There was also a really rowdy group next to us, which took away from the experience.
Overall, I’d say the total experience was okay, but I don’t think I’d go back right now with COVID. I didn’t feel super comfortable.
Great food, large portions and lots of drinks. Service was good, although they had trouble getting some of our dishes out at the same time. Rooftop seating was great during COVID.
WE LOVED OUR SERVES HANNAH AND ALRTH!!! They were absolutely fabulous and fun and made us feel right at home. If you go here ask for THEM!!!!
I love Cava Mezze; it's great for couples and groups. I've been a few times during the last few months. Great food and drink!
As always, great food and service. Wonderful selection of dishes with lots of choices. Definitely returning in the future.
I love Cava but I wouldn’t recommend the brunch mania option. And their 25 cent mimosas is pure juice. They can’t add more champagne since it’s already made in a carafe.
I like their menu better outside of their brunch option.
Celebrating an exam complete and cooler temps were sweet. crazy feta and good house wine. The cauliflower and corn salad were sublime. Everyone was nice and I liked the price.
Gyros were fab. I picked up the tab. BF was glad.
Walked home with a full belly...the garlic was good, but left my breath smelly!
No value ‘ would not go back or Recommend to friends or family
We had a great time at brunch. The mimosas were strong and the food was good. Service was decent. They were pretty hands off so we had to seek their attention to get refills, but everyone was very polite so we left very happy. I would definitely go again!
Service was not great and food was so-so. One of the four of us did not get his food until at least 10 minutes after the rest of us got ours. It was difficult to get attention from a server to get more water. The staff seemed indifferent to the shortcomings.
It was a good happy hour spot.
The food was fantastic! Very clean and Covid 19 compliant!
Took a while to get seated as this was a busy Sunday. Once we got seated, it took a while for a waiter to come. I eventually flagged someone down to get a waiter to visit the table. The waiter was knowledgeable regarding the menu. We ordered the lamb chops and the brunch special. There were only two lamp chops with a little bit of meat on them. They weren't cooked to our liking, but we were hungry so it fit the bill. Zuchini fritters were great as well as the chicken and waffles.
We did the brunch special - 3 dishes and reduced priced drinks. To start off, despite a reservation, we needed to wait for our table. Then we waited a long time before our waiter even asked for a first drink order. Food was decent but very slow to arrive and we actually needed to call to our waiter at one point to get drink refills. Meanwhile staff were dong shots with the patrons at a nearby table. About a month ago we had a good experience at this restaurant but this last experience soured us and we will not be going back.
Great food and helpful service. Recommend checking this place out.
great DC restaurant week menu! I loved all the healthy menu options.
I always enjoy brunch. Felt safe and the food was great.
Was safe and clean during these unprecedented times. Note: No longer bottomless but brunch “mania” which imo is better. Food was excellent and service was great. Staff was friendly and very attentive. We came here for their brunch to wrap up my friend’s bach trip and we were all very pleased. :) Would def come back again!
Service was very attentive. The food was amzazing!
I’ve been to Cava several times and I’ve never had bad service until my last visit. Our waitress was TERRIBLE! It took her a long time to attend to my party even though it wasn’t busy in the restaurant at the time. She never let us know they made a huge change in the menu (they also ran out of certain foods and it was only 1pm in the afternoon), accommodating or attended to the individuals in my party that hasn’t been there before. It was embarrassing to offer this place, speak so highly of it and have it be such a disappointment. I hope they change their brunch menu back to the way it previously was when all of this Covid mess blows over. I will not be returning anytime soon.
We had a great time and our server was fantastic!!
Excellent customer service! Victor and Melvin are excellent for the upstairs dining experience. This is one of our favorite spots!
We went to Cava Mezze for an early dinner and had a great experience. The food was great, all brought out piping hot and fresh. The service was attentive and we felt comfortable in the indoor dining space, with spaced-out tables and noticeable active cleaning/safety practices. We will be back next time we are in DC!
A go-to place for me! Enjoyed the red wine, Brussels, Cauliflower (prob my fave thing that night), the fried chicken sliders, and the calamari (just okay).
I will be back!
We had the $35 brunch. The food was very good but selections were restricted (e.g., one from column A, etc).
Excellent food and service!!
I love Cava! Always so delicious
Great overall!! Our server was phenomenal!!
Food did not taste good not worth the $35 per person. The Clarendon location unlimited brunch menu before COVID was way better than this location. Was very disappointed and won’t come back again.
Great food and service. They were very clean and careful and they are handling their reopening well and safely.
