Great food as always; fresh, seasonal ingredients, plenty of veggie options, and good drink options.
Only quibble is noise level: difficult to hear fellow diners in normal conversation.

We are a bunch of retirees (young) of the hospital in town. We meet every 6 weeks or so at Cava and love the way we order and share Won’t go anywhere else!

Food is delicious. Small plates so you can share a little bit with everyone. It is loud in the restaurant so not the best for intimate conversations, but a great atmosphere

Stopped in for brunch on New Years Day. I have been to brunch at other Cave Mezze locations, and this particular visit did not meet the standards of my previous experiences. The food often times was either overcooked (poached eggs were cooked solid, french toast was very hard) or undercooked (english muffins were chewy and barely toasted). The service was just ok, seemed to be basically an impersonal order taker versus any sort of interaction with us. And there seemed to be less vegetarian options than I remember, not sure if they went through a menu update?

I understand that serving unlimited small plates in a brunch setting can be demanding on the kitchen, but for $35 (+ tax/tip) per person, I had expected better.

We had a very enjoyable meal. The wait staff was terrific. The food was good and delivered quickly. My only negative comment is about the sound level. The open concept results in a loud environment. We would have appreciated a quieter dinning experience.

Cava Mezze has quickly become one of my regular places in Olney for lunch or dinner. It is on the noisy side, and avoid the table near the door in cold weather. Otherwise, great food, acceptable bar, and creative menu.

Based on a recommendation from a colleague, I made brunch reservations for my GGF’s bday. We were seated promptly and were greeted immediately by our waitress. She explained how everything worked and we were off! The food and drinks were amazing! Everything came out promptly and was absolutely perfect. We will definitely be coming back for brunch.

Cava Mezze is our favorite restaurant and when our kids come to visit, they plan their schedule to allow one meal at Cava. The food, service and atmosphere are so enjoyable. It’s a gem in Olney.

We were a group of 8 who came to celebrate a special occasion. The food and service were terrific, and since they serve smaller plates, we were able to order many different items, so everyone got to try something new. Highlights aways include the Opa Opa Shrimp, the Saganaki, the lamb chops, and if you have enough people to make it work, the "Chef D Platter" offers a good amount of delicious food to share. While I was there for dinner this time, the lunch special is also a great deal.

Excellent service and food. We had the Octopus, which, if not cooked correctly, can taste and feel like eating a rubber band. Theirs was buttery soft in an excellent sauce. Steak was rare/medium rare and perfectly cooked. The chicken moist and flavorful. The venue is all hard surfaces, so very loud.

Food was absolutely amazing. We went on a Saturday night so it was very busy, the bar was packed. Our waiter was working the bar crowd and our table but he was very nice and did his best to make sure we were good. Highly recommend the lamb chops!

Love Cava Mezze! Decided to go for our anniversary since it was a work night and I can depend on the quality of the food and service. Our server greeted us with champagne, which made the evening special. Grilled meatballs were perfect! Tzatziki, chicken souvlaki, feta hush puppies-everything is always consistent. Thank you, Cava!

Brunch special has some excellent choices, some mediocre. The noise level is very high as there are only hard surfaces. Included with brunch are 25 cent mimosa...which are premixed and only adequate. Best bites are the spicy lamb Benedict, shrimp and grits, salmon breakfast bites. Coffee is not included in brunch. Plan on $100 for two for brunch.

Recommend with some reservations. Table near toilets but probably lucky to get a table on Friday night. Noise level was excessive for the first half hour. Prices have soared, especially for wine, since my last visit in the spring?
