Food was excellent as usual but after being seated it was almost 20 minutes before someone came to the table.

The food was delicious! We ordered the roasted octopus which tasted fresh and was grilled perfectly. My husband had an Old Fashioned from the bar and he said it was one of the best he's ever had.

Food is phenomenal, service also. One of the best places you'll ever eat if you like Mediterranean. My favorite spot in the area.

My husband and I ate here during restaurant week and got the special. It was a great value and opportunity to try a variety of small plates. It was our first time here and we will definitely be back. We would like to try the brunch also since we heard that was excellent.

Amazing food and wonderful service. Restaurant did seem a little crowded and there was a women’s bathroom out of service which created a pretty constant line. Great experience overall.

My friend and I went for brunch we had a 25cent mimosas. The pricing was reasonable for the food. The menu was a la carte and enough selections.

I love Cava Mezze so much. I recommend this restaurant to so many people, especially for brunch. Their staff is always on point, from hosting to drinks to food to cleaning. I always feel so well cared for and that’s tough for brunch places, especially ones that do bottomless mimosas. Not to mention how reasonable the price is for some delicious food. Love this place and hope to continue visiting in the future.

Brunch was great. The Brunch Portions were large and the mimosas were great for $0.25 each! Our Server was very friendly and fun!

Every single time I dine at Cava Mezze, I am pleasantly surprised. Went there with a couple of friends and the sheer amount of very good food we ate was definitely worth it for the price. The service was also really good; everyone was attentive, calm, and composed. Overall a five-star place for brunch. Will go again--perhaps several times.

Everything was amazing as usual. They were very accommodating with COVID from table separation to the football game on TV. Opa opa shrimp, potato terrine, pita and hummus were delicious.

Went to brunch with my friends and we had a great time. The service was wonderful, and they made accommodations for my friend’s allergy as well. The gyro hash was a bit salty, but the manager seemed like he was taking care of it. The food was great overall. Will definitely come back here!

I felt like the mimosas were super weak. I could hardly taste any champagne in there. It was also a little sad to see that the bottomless brunch was gone. I'm sure it's all covid related but it's just not quite the same.

Regarded as one of the best brunch spots. Only really worth it if you order tons of mimosas. Otherwise do the a la carte brunch options. I only went for brunch so can’t speak to dinner

Absolutely loved our dinner at Cava! Everything we tried was delicious and while one of the vegetables dishes we ordered was out, the waiter made a great recommendation to substitute for it and was so friendly. I'll definitely be coming back to Cava Mezze!

Their French toast is probably the best in DC. Glazed honey donuts are good too.

We had a table for 7. We were nervous that we would be crowded in with others. We sat outside and it was perfect. The spacing was great and although it got chilly, the big heaters kept it comfortable. Good food, good service, good price. Would definitely go back again!

They have a beautiful patio/courtyard that was very quiet and they had quite a few heaters for when it gets chilly. A great restaurant for special occassions!
