Wonderful food, great service, excellent value. We had the mini gyros and took some baklava home for dessert. We’ll be back!

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!

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!
