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!

Food and drinks were great. Not a huge fan of the time limit on ordering but other than that, very good.

The food was tasty but our server basically forgot about our table throughout our meal. We had to flag him down. Aside from that issue, the server seemed kind and the atmosphere was great in the patio outside.

Our group did the Brunch Mania and it was one of the best brunches I’ve ever had! All of the “tapas style” small plates we ordered were delicious, especially the hush puppies and Mykonian potatoes. Overall a fantastic value and experience and I would definitely recommend!

I have always recommended Cava for brunch but will no longer. For $35 you get 2 "entrees" and a side. Our server said that the entrees were large sized so our party of 5 chose the $35 per person option. We did not receive large portions, all but the french toast were the size of a regular Cava meal option. The food was less than to be excited about and the entire party, besides myself, was new to Cava and they said that they will not be returning.

The only saving grace was the server, who was nice, but even then, we did not have drinks refilled often.

We always enjoy Cava Mezze in Arlington. With Covid we really appreciate that we can make confirmed outdoor reservations on their beautiful back patio. The General Mgr, Susie, is a gem and she buzzes around making sure everything is well taken care of. Lots of yummy dishes. We ordered four things between the two of us and were pleasantly stuffed!

Fantastic food, atmosphere & staff! Elected “Brunch Mania” as we were there on a Sunday for our inaugural visit (anniversary), which allowed us to sample a variety of dishes...everything was delicious! The French Toast has to be the overall winner, which says a lot since it’s one of my favorites that I’ve sampled all over the world & my wife can do without it...we both loved it! Can’t beat 25 cent mimosas either - great mix, definitely not too heavy on the OJ (they offer grapefruit too, but we didn’t try it). Instantly one of our, if not the, favorite place for casual dining! Clarendon is a great area with a significant variety for dining, but this was perfect! Will be back soon & often! Thank you Cava Mezze!

Every member of the staff was super nice and accommodating! The food was delicious! The brunch is slightly different than it was in the past, but I honestly like the way this works better. 10/10 recommend and will be going back again.

A different brunch style than what I was used to. Was very hesitant about it, but ended up loving it more than the old buffet/tapa style.

Nice servers, especially during COVID - they had a nice attitude, were attentive and also exercised good hygiene. Foods always good, but service stood out compared to some of my other COVID dining experiences.

Food as always was awesome. The cheese-on-fire, and grilled octopus are particularly good. The back patio is perfect for Covid dining.
