Cava Ratings and Reviews
This is a neighbourhood restaurant at the entrance of a small mall. The tables are well spaced, the service is efficient but discrete, the food has pretences. Some flavours are interesting but the Chef should aimed at more authentic and simple fare, perfectly executed.
Came up from the US for a few days and decided to check tjis place out. Tables were packed so close to each other that we could hear the entire conversation at the next table. Noise level can be a problem. The Paella, along with the rest of the menu and wine, are overpriced. I thought for a second that I was dining at NY 5th Ave. Not worth the commute.
The food was exceptionally good. We asked our waiter to make the selections on our behalf and we were impressed with every single dish. The flavours were phenomenal. However, it was quite a wait (more than 45 min) before we got any food on the table. Our waiter was great as a whole but the first hour of service was very very slow. Overall, I would still recommend this restaurant 100%. One side note, some of the patrons were REALLY casually dressed- shorts and Birkenstocks on a Saturday night at a nice restaurant is a bit much in my humble opinion.
I have been to Cava several times over the years. I have always enjoyed their modern creative approach to Spanish food. I found the serving staff knowleadge and informative about food and wine that they are serving. This time it was a birthday dinner for my companion who is also a vegetarian. There were good vegetarians options to choose from and they were equally delicious. When I made the reservation, I left a note to request a special desert for the birthday celebration, the desert was delicious and elegantly presented. Thank you, Cava for another lovely and enjoyable dinner. Look forward to returning soon.
We were very disappointed with our experience. The menu was quite pricey for the quantity of food. Worst yet, the paella had a hair in it. All we were offered was to wait a hour for another one or a full priced bill, no reductions. Regardless of the incident we will not return or recommend based on the overpriced lacklustre food.
Unbelievable Spanish food mid town.
The location and setting does not do this place any justice.
The food here is perfectly prepared with excellent tastes and pairings. The sweet from the salty mixed plates show a well balanced dish and complex pallet.
I enjoyed a selection of dishes and my favourite of the night was a simple appetizer with a Spanish Blue Cheese and fig on bread. The flavours were so complex we had to order another.
A great experience and meal worth noting. Unfortunately the space and location is not very trendy or conveniently located.
I look forward coming back for another round of amazing flavours.
