    The $35.00 brunch is different from previous visits. Worried it wouldn’t be enough food but it was fine. Went off menu and ordered a baklava that might be one of the worst I have ever eaten. Phyllo pastry was soft. Not fresh which was disappointing. I think we will stick to the bar and small plates

    I prefer the original location in Rockville. Much more intimate. The food in Olney wasn’t the great. The octopus was chewy. The lamb chop was bland and came with fries? I just ever remember it being just average at the Rockville location. I won’t be back to Olney.

    We drove from Baltimore to Olney because we love Cava Mezze so much. It did not disappoint, and actually exceeded our already high expectations. The Manager, Gus, is incredible and made the evening especially wonderful.

    Food was fantastic and loved how it comes out as a dish is ready. Plenty of pita bread too! Very noisy when place is packed - hard to hold a conversation. Calamari was a little dry with too much breading, but the sampler dips, crab cake special, gyros, braised beef, brussel sprouts were all outstanding. Oh the sweet iced tea was very refreshing. And our server was so busy but never neglected us - like the hustle of all the staff!

    The food was good. We were a party of 10 and there was mixed reviews on the food. I did not like the idea that everyone at the table had to order the brunch option $35/person. My mother-in-law and I would have been happy with a single choice. Some folks were on their third selection while some of us were still waiting on the second course. The noise level is extremely high we could not hear ourselves talk. We had a tank inside maybe outside would have been better. Our bill was more than $440 without Tip for 10 not too bad but I did not think the brunch was a good value for the price and the portions were small.

    We were especially impressed with the floor manager, Gus, who worked tirelessly to ensure that guests were happy and well served. Our waitress was excellent and the food was outstanding as usual. Cava Messe is our go-to place for celebrations, because they take such excellent care of their patrons. Way to go- Gus.

    We had the Brunch. Good thing we made reservations because it was almost full 30 minutes after it opened. Food was outstanding, plenty, and our server was excellent in bringing out a couple of plates at a time. I don't care for lamb or goat/cheese. I had no problems in selecting many delicious dishes. My only complaint was that it was very noisy - but everyone seemed happy talking to their guests without censure. This place is on our list of places to go to!!

    The patio for outdoor dining is asphalt in a busy parking lot with unsightly orange traffic barriers around your tables. You breathe car exhaust outside. The prices are high for the portion size. Service was good but noise inside was high. Food was ok. I won’t be going back.

    The food and service were excellent. Several of us ordered the special (which was crab cakes), and were really pleased with the dinner. Personally I think the vegetables and sides are overpriced, but we still ordered them, loved them, and will probably do so again!
