Great dinner on a gorgeous evening. Love the ahi appetizer and the mushroom soup was superb!
Great seafood buffet! Shrimp and crab legs plus great clam chowder. Terrific.
The Friday night seafood buffet is very good and very reasonable. Call ahead for reservations and to make sure that they are serving the buffet. The outside patio is very nice, weather permitting.
Very accommodating and great staff. I wanted salmon without any fat and it was cooked to perfection.
The New Year’s Eve buffet was great- enjoyed the carving station and chilled seafood options as well as the sushi. Of course, the dessert options were plentiful and everyone I tried was perfect.
Took my family for Christmas Day dinner buffet at first seating 4:00 pm. Most of the food was not set out yet. What was out did not have serving utensils. Food was cold. On a more positive note servers were very attentive. We will not come again. We will return to the Hyatt buffet instead
Great place to have lunch poolside. The soup salad and sandwich combos were great.
Great classic eggs benedict! They also have endless mimosa's on Saturdays and Sundays (may be seasonal)
Not much of a buffet selection on Saturday night, unless all you like is prime rib and pasta. Friday nights are great with seafood buffet.
Great food especially for a hotel restaurant. Kind server.
Service was attentive and fast
Food was dreadful
Burgers arrived minutes after ordering and clearly precooked and kept under a warmer
Seafood buffet looked unattractive and neglected
Bar unable to make a dry martini!
Don't eat here unless you arrive late and ate too tired to go out (our reason)
Cava is very convenient after the Desert Town Hall speaker series. The service is very good and the wine list is respectable.
I do not like the shrunken menu and liked it much better when there were more choices such as on the luncheon menu.
First time there.. really enjoyed the buffet. More flavors than expected..Thanks so much.
It's a beautiful setting but the best thing I can say about our experience at this restaurant was the convenience. We were staying at the resort and decided to have dinner here and our server was very nice and attentive but the food was extremely disappointing. We had eaten breakfast here a few days earlier and enjoyed breakfast but we would not be able to recommend for dinner.
My family and I have enjoyed the Christmas buffet for the past 4 years at CAVA. The food has always been very good and we've looked forward to the many delicious food choices offered. This year however, the food quality definitely went down. The cheeses were tasteless as was the crab and the turkey was not the same flavor as in years past. The smoked fish was rubbery and the desserts looked pretty, but we honestly didn't find any that were tasty. We can't comment on any other meals served at CAVA, but after this year, we are sad to say that we'll need to find another place to enjoy our Christmas meals in the future.
Great Christmas buffet. Reasonably priced, nice pool side setting. Server was attentive and pleasant. Would go again on any occasion.
Tried the Friday seafood buffet at 7:30. Place was a ghost town. Some dishes good, some not so much. Attendant very friendly. There is a seafood pasta station, 3 hot seafood (fish) items, cold pasta, California rolls (very good), cheeses, vegetables, desserts. Nicely laid out. I was satisfied. This is the hotel's main restaurant with inside and outside seating.
Friday evening they have a seafood buffet that is excellent.
Food was very well prepared, service was very good. I would definitely return again. Because it was not in season, the hotel was very quiet and there were few diners. I will return during the busy season to see if the quality is still really good.
Love love loved it!! The buffet was out of this world...dinner. chocolate fountain. King crab...oh my goodness will definitely be back!
Filet minon was amazing and the service was exceptional.
The service was not great at all. The hosts seemed to be shocked when we told them there were 7 of us. They served coffee and our waiter left for a long time and I had to flag down other workers to get them to bring us water. There were plenty of workers around that didn't seem to be doing anything when there were barely any customers in the restaurant. I was disappointed because it is a pretty expensive restaurant. My friends and I are young adults and we did not receive the best service compared to families and older people who came in AFTER us. I hope we weren't treated differently because of our age.
Cava is consistently wonderful. Great food, ambiance, and service. It perfectly rounds the spa experience.
Another excellent dinner experience following Desert Town Hall. Food was very good as was the service overall.
Our server, Franklin, deserves special note. He was prompt, witty while being very polite and accomodating . . . an excellent server.
The place was nearly empty, the prime rib which in the past was very good was very very rare.
My daughter and I were very pleased with the restaurant. We sat outdoors, pool view and had the prime rib buffet which included all side dishes and dessert. It was an unexpected surprise because we had been prepared to order ala carte which I really don't like.
You simply have to try the corn beef hash for breakfast but make sure you get the sauce on the side. It's a little too heavy.
My guest and I had a wonderful time at this restaurant. Diners should be ware that the restaurant is located within a hotel and its a large restaurant. When we went to the restaurant we were the only diners.
Very disappointing experience. From the pictures it looked nice for fine dining but upon arriving it was obvious it's more like a breakfast spot. At 7:30pm, there was not a single person in the restaurant. Bright lights, menus which were laminated, no table cloths, off odor. We actually had a drink and then got up and left.
We had the prime rib buffet and ordered off the menu. It was all exceptional! Excellent selection of food. All very well prepared. Service was outstanding!
outstanding food: a pleasure to look at and to eat; vibrant yet tasteful scene; looking to return
Went to Cava for Christmas buffet. $52/ person. For the Esmeralda, this restaurant is a disappointment. One expects something more elegant from them than a casual cafe atmosphere. Tablecloths, at least. The food was pretty good but overpriced for the setting.
The seafood buffet was underwhelming. The crab was fishy and half frozen. The salmon was not good either. The apple pie was frozen. The mousse and creme brûlée were ok. I am a resident and I brought an out of town guest and was frankly embarrassed. It was expensive too.
We were celebrating a birthday. Without informing the waiter of the occasion he picked up on it and brought a birthday dessert for the birthday person. This was great service.
the salad was terrible didn't eat much of it because it was so bad. Didn't take a chance on waste of calories of dessert.
The Easter brunch buffet was excellent in terms of selection, quality, presentation and attentive service. Highly recommended.
If you are looking for ambiance, this is not the place. If you are looking for good, solid food, this restaurant is it. The limited selection of items is well prepared and tasty.
We took a friend here for her birthday and all three of us were very happy with our dining experience. Much to our surprise we were in time for their price-fixe early dinner which has to be the best deal in town. Our waiter was exceptional; very attentive, professional without being obtrusive. We'll be returning soon.
When I made the reservation for Cava, I had previewed the menu online. Fully expecting to order from the dinner menu, I was disappointed to find that we were required to choose from lunch selections
Admittedly our reservations were before 5 p.m., but we were attended a lecture series beginning at six and wanted to be timely. In all honesty, I chose Cava because they offered a discount for lecture attendees.
While the menu leaned heavily into burgers, I chose an ahi salad. I often order rare shi, and this salad had a distinctly fishy flavor that is uncommon for top grade ahi. However, the wine list was top notch.
While the server could have been more attentive, he wasn't bad.
I would rate the restaurant average -- which isn't uncommon for hotel restaurants.
