Delicious meal of shared mezze plates before the play at Olney theater! Our knowledgeable waiter was helpful, friendly and never hovered or tried to hurry us.
We look forward to more dinners there with friends.

The food was tasty and the service excellent. Pretty easy to have a conversation over dinner until the place filled up, then it's quite noisy.

The food was amazing! We opted to eat outside which was very comfortable with the heaters, and given the cover, we could even enjoy seeing the rain. Can’t wait to go back!

Good food and service. My only criticism was that I was charged for extra sauce for my gyro, which felt like I was “nickeled and dimed..” The food quality was fine, and I would go here again.

Cava Mezze quality has gone way down. Aside from the change in the brunch - even the new $35 brunch is underwhelming.

Spent a $100 on 2 brunches and a la carte lamb Benedict for 3 people yesterday. It was just OK.

The food was great and really hit the spot! We had the mini gyros, zucchini fritters, opa opa shrimp, and the lollipop chicken. Everything was super yummy! Only thing that wasn’t 10/10 was the baklava. Pistachio gelato that came with it was great but the baklava was really hard and a little burnt. Maybe it was just a fluke? Definitely didn’t ruin the experience, though. Will be back for sure!

Sat outside on a beautiful night with wonderful friends and great food! Cava Mezze in Olney is a true local, neighborhood gem! Thanks to Chris, our server, for recommendations. The house red Greek wine was a hit! Loved the watermelon salad , grilled meatballs and the chicken skewers. And just had to finish off with the mini donuts in honey and walnuts!

Cava in the #1 spot in my book for brunch. It’s always easy to get a reservation, the food is incredible (plenty to choose from in their three course brunch menu) and the staff is always so wonderful and accommodating.

We dined inside where tables were safely spaced and were pleased that management had opened up more tables outside. Staff is always courteous and helpful. Plates arrive promptly as ready. Food is delicious and varied.

Being able to sit outside--we had originally signed up for inside--was a nice added benefit. Great place, great food, great service . . . can get a little noisy inside at times; but, hey.

We sat outside to eat the other evening and got great service. We had the watermelon salad, grilled octopus, and grilled shrimp. They were wonderful! We had the corn which was good too.
We tried the blood orange margaritas and they were delicious. We will be coming here more often.

Cava Mezze was wonderful! The Saganiki (flambe'd cheese) was an unexpected surprise that tastes great. The Watermelon Salad was awesome! Brussels sprouts, Chicken Souvlaki and Grilled Beef Meatballs were delish! And the mini donuts in honey with walnuts was the best way to top off our dinner. Service was awesome with a very friendly staff.
Had a great time and looking forward to our next get together at Cava Mezze. Thank you !!!

Cava Mezze, specifically the Olney location, continues to be one of the most consistently good restaurants in Montgomery County. The staff is attentive without being overbearing, the ambiance is great, and the service has always been friendly. My only problem with this restaurant is that they always add MORE delicious items to the menu, so in addition to the usual favorites my friends and I like to order, we have to try the new things, which means resolutions to stick to a meal plan usually get thrown out the window (though I should add, every time I've been on a strict diet/meal plan, Cava Mezze is one of the only restaurants that has been able to actually cater to it, which is awesome)! I'll continue to bring all my out of town guests and family members to this location, manager Lucas and his team are doing an excellent job!

Listen up! If you are in Olney looking for a delicious and fun dinner location, go to Cava Mezze. This is not your regular Cava with a full bar and table service. The food is unique and prepared with care so that it leaves an impression on you. Small plates curated by the chef with each selection different from the next. The only reason I didn't give it 5 stars is that this place doesn't want to be out of reach and out of touch with its community - it's perfectly positioned to be a restaurant you can take the entire family to and still impress your adult friends. After you have tasted the chicken lollipops, lamb sliders, roasted cauliflower and ridiculous french toast desert- you can thank me!
