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.
I have been to Cava Mezze man times and it never disappoints! Every dish ordered and shared by the members of my dining group was delicious, as were the cocktails. We sat upstairs, where it's a little less noisy.
Good experience, I’d go back. But, although the menu listed a Monday Special, the waitress told us it was no longer available and a new special that was more expensive was the special. Disappointing.
I've gone to the CAVA chain restaurants before and loved them, but CAVA Mezze was an even better experience. We sat at the rooftop bar - which was amazing. For dinner, we ordered tzatziki, zucchini fritters and octopus. I'd recommend all of these, especially if you looking for something a little different. We're already planning our next trip back!
Always a great start time
Everything was great about Cava Mezza. The food was terrific and interesting. Good beer list. Great service.
I've never left anything less than 5 stars across the board, but had to say something here. No big deal to start out - our table was set with 6 plates, 5 sets of silverware (two were missing forks), and 4 glasses. It took about 15 minutes for a server to come over, but once she did, we flagged the waitress to the missing pieces. She said she would be back to fix it. We had to remind her again after it appeared she forgot, but it was eventually fixed without any big deal. It was the first seating for brunch, they were busy and no one was upset.
Someone at our table mentioned it had been about 15 minutes since we ordered our drinks. The waitress must have overheard because she then looked over at our table, gestured with her two hands and said "calm down." It was more awkward than anything. Didn't realize what she said was even rude, but it's ok. We didn't mean to come off as snarky.
After that everything was fine, but the waitress spent the rest of the meal being a little awkward. Our experience was hard to describe. The food was good, especially considering the price, but we spent the rest of the day talking about the server.
I won't be back, but I wouldn't press anyone to stay away or anything. I'm sure our server was just having a bad day.
Great food. Unpleasantly loud. Drunk men at the bar.
Sat upstairs with the heaters going and cool night. Loved the atmosphere. Loved the food options. Wood oven roasted Brussel sprouts and other vegetables my favorite! SO many good options.
We had a lovely dinner celebrating my friend’s birthday.
Always a great experience at Cava! The drinks and food were coming out at a quick pace, and the spicy lamb benedict is personal favorite.
very fresh food, off the beaten track. Knowledgeable and friendly wait staff. Salads are big enough to share, some other dishes are more tapas-style. Ideally for a few people willing to share and experiment.
The food was great, our waitress was super efficient.
My wife and I enjoy going to Cava Mezze--DC. The food is very good and the service attentive. Sometimes the food courses come out at you a little quick but we've learned to space out our ordering so that our meal is more relaxed. Still we get in and out very quickly for our pre-theater dining occasion.
Solid Management, great food, better price!
The food was delicious. Amy took very good care of us.
small plates of food perfect for sharing on a date. Everything was very tasty.
Great location. Delightful luncheon menu with the choice of three items for a very reasonable price. Wonderful way to enjoy a taste of several items and still have a full lunch. Can't wait to return.
The restaurant called a few hours before our reservation to cancel. It was inconvenient and we were left without last minute options in the area on a busy night.
Cava is delicious. I have been there for lunch several times and was never disappointed, but this was my first time for dinner. We had a reservation and were seated right away. We ordered the dip sampler, brussel sprouts, and the chicken and egg noodles. It was enough for two people plus we brought home leftovers, which heated up just as well the next day. The wait staff was attentive and overall the food was delicious.
This was our first experience at this restaurant. The waitress was patient and was able to help us with our selections. The small restaurant is busy and a bit noisy but enjoyable.
My girlfriend and I had lunch here at 4pm. The waitress was good and explained the menu thoroughly. The food was good but overpriced. I won’t be back anytime soon but it was ok.
We didn't know it was half of bottles of wine, but we took advantage of that! Our waitress was terrific - very friendly and responsive. We enjoyed choosing a variety of veggie dishes and a couple meats - it's a good way for everyone to taste a little something - we got the dish where they set the cheese on fire (very fun!), lamb balls, cauliflower, beet salad, and spanakopita (really good!). You'll have fun when you go!
Great tapas style brunch!
