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.

Cava Mezze was awesome and we were satisfied with the service. The food was good, the only thing is that it took a while for some of the plates arrive.

The good came out cold at times. The service was ok. She made efforts to say no to many things and took forever to get a fork, as she was still working on it. The food options were ok!!!

Food was good but overpriced for what you got. The staff was friendly but unprofessional and more interested in socializing with each other. There were also a lot of loud groups at the bar and generally more of a casual bar atmosphere.
