    We had never been to Cava Meze before. We shared a Village salad and shared the Mini Giros and two glasses of wine. It was just right and delicious!

    It was my wife my first visit. The restaurant is small and crowded, however the service and our food choice was really good. We enjoyed the lamb chops over fries, hummus, and the brussel sprouts. We learned after ordering that the servings are small and that the kitchen does not have a heat lamp, so the food is brought to the table when it is ready and not all at once. Expect members of your dining party to be eating at different times. The small portions worked for us, since we were eating around 8 PM EST.

    Food was good, mimosas strong but service was SLOW SLOW SLOW. Our waiter was nice at first but then he stopped checking on us, took at least 30 mins between each course and mimosas were not flowing. If it weren’t for the other servers and manager (i think) who came and refilled our waters, asked if we were okay, i would have been very very disappointed. It was my sisters bday too😭 Will go to Olney location from now on..

    I’ve been coming to Cava Mezza since it opened in Rockville. It’s one of my favorites. I’ve recommended and introduced dozens of people who have gone on to become regulars and raving fans as well. The food is always delicious and consistent. Needless to say, I really like this restaurant and; particularly this location. However, my experience was heightened even further last night due to the exceptional service I received. My server Affan was a delight. He was personable, communicative, attentive, and made me feel even more at home at Cava than I already feel. What impressed me the most was his knowledge of and passion for the food. When asked questions about the menu, he would speak joyously of his favorite dishes and was able to provide the subtle details of its preparation. When I learned they were out of one of my favorite dishes (potatoes terrine) I was pretty disappointed as it’s only recently returned to the menu. Affan explained exactly why it was unavailable and provided a date to expect it back. At one point we both talked excitedly about the French toast dessert for which we both share an affinity (highly recommend to anyone reading this btw). In summary: great food, as always; looking forward to returning soon for my terrine…and give Affan the best sections and shifts. He deserves it!

    My friends and I recently visited Cava Mezze to celebrate a promotion. We had a party of 11. Our server Dave was excellent, attentive and kind. The food as always was amazing but the only downfall is Cava is not serving our most favorite dish the Lollipop Chicken.

    We were early for our reservations, but they were able to seat us anyway. The service was outstanding. The quality of the food was fantastic. The flaming cheese was a huge hit! Overall we rate this restaurant a 10! The only thing that you should know is that it is very loud so if you want to have a conversations be prepared to speak in a loud voice.

    The Harissa is perfect. We had the flambeed cheese which was rich and delicious, the crispy potato terrine which came with a very interesting whipped feta sauce, and the meat platter which was a hearty composition of flavors. As great as the food was, our server Alan was the true standout of the evening 🙏🏽

    Wonderful and delicious food. Only downfall was mezza platter was supposed to come with Kalamata olives and did not. Server never told us they were out of. We told our server he said he would tell the kitchen and never returned with an explanation. When we asked another server we found out they were substituting with cucumbers because they ran out.

    The meal was a bit mixed. The service (David) was amazing. Of the dishes, the potato terrine was undercooked and greasy. The salmon had a very good taste but was VERY overcooked. The dips and dolmades appetizer was good.
