Great food and drink options.
Cava has always been a favorite spot for me. I love the food and the atmosphere. The service is always top notch. I had the grilled veggie tostada....it was so amazing!!! I will definitely go back soon. Thank you Cava!
Valentines dinner with my with and ninety three year old father (Mom passed away on Valentines Day). My steak was very good, Dads fish was subpar.
Menu needs updating.
Delicious, friendly, nice atmosphere, wonderful gathering place.
Outstanding food and drinks along with great service. I can’t believe I haven’t given this restaurant a try sooner.
Perhaps it was because we had dinner at Cava 3 days earlier, or because we were in a booth on our earlier visit, or a different chef, but it was slightly below our 5 star expectation. Still very good, but not stellar. Service wasn't as attentive, calamari and guacamole not as awesome. Still, I would return without hesitation.
Always super fresh and flavorful. Nice size portions.
Great wines. Great service. A fantastic place.
Pleasant ambiance and very attentive service. Varied menu, food good and well presented but not experimental. Some portions are IMMENSE. Eg lamb shank for one was a good sized and tasty dinner before the residue was doggie bagged making TWO MORE lunches. Paella was average, with most fish too dry, and more rice than needed. Picky and very foodie diners like me might be a bit disappointed but, with more moderate expectations, I would definitely return.
Terrible. They brought some of the main dishes before the appetizers. The server did not seem to care. One of the main dishes was over salty to the point it was inedible. Again, the server did not seem to care. There was no manager as far as I can tell. No one apologized when we left. We will never go there again.
Cava is a a very popular restaurant in Montecito (Santa Barbara suburb). The food, mostly Mexican, is great and the prices are reasonable. They have a sister restaurant in Santa Barbara called Carlitos. It is fairly small so dinner reservation are highly recommended. Casual attire is fine but the folks in Montecito tend to dress up a bit.
