    This was a terrible experience. I came here with a reservation booked there was no assigned seating for a reservation. The tables were extremely small they had to literally take some plates off the table and put it on a fixture near our table to make room for other plates coming out. Our waitress came to take our appetizer order and never returned to our table so we couldn’t order food. We ended up just getting an appetizer and one drink and ended up leaving. I had to get up from my table and get the waitress’s attention just to get containers and the check.Terrible customer service, food was mediocre for the wait. Very overpriced.

    It was my birthday the waitress was amazing made the dining way better, I got the henny punch and ordered apps the chicken was so dry on my salad it looked like wood chips, at that point i had 2 more drinks and finished my hookah, this app showed me pictures of food that was not here I dined there May 15 2022, also went last year as well but I paid 100 dollar deposit got there took our drink orders and never came back so by the time she did kitchen was closed and owner gave me a hard time about my deposit I had to show them proof as if my id and reservation wasn’t enough I wanted to give the place another go and actually have the food but not worth it. They not lacking on the ambiance very nice ambiance

    Usually I have a great time at Cavali but this time the service at best mediocre , the server was barely attentive and a lot of new rules that make no sense , like if you don’t get an entree you can only get one drink , after 1130 the serving you I had to do to bar to get my drink , this isn’t great service cavils needs to do better very disappointed.

    Service was slow waited over an hour for very basic meals . Brunch unlimited drinks were brought in little containers and delayed taking into account you only get 90 min .I think they should stick to being a nightclub not a brunch location

    My overall experience was terrible. The food took a long time to arrive to the table. My entree, chicken and waffles, was terrible. It was really dry. There’s absolutely no reason why I have to chase after my waiter and get up from my seat, multiple times, to get my bottomless mimosas in which I paid for. My waiter barely visited my table. Despite me speaking to the manager 3 times to make him aware of my experience, he did not visit my table. The only time he visited my table was when I refused to pay until I spoke to a manager. Also, the deposit I was mandated to pay was not added to the bill until I mentioned it. This was my first time visiting and I would not recommend.

    I had a great time. And I was out by myself. The food was sooooo good! Worth every dollar, the service was great. I was tended to, checked on, and served well. The vibe was everything, great dj and music. I can’t wait to come back and I will surely recommend to anybody with an ear. The owner was great as well, very active, and hands on, as well as a strong leadership personality with staff, as I walked through a team meeting lol. Keep up the great work and customer service. You all were great. Promise kept lol! -Olivia C.

    On Feb 26, I had a reservation for 9:45pm. We were seated at 9:53pm. Our server came after 15 minutes to give us the QR CODE for the menu. After giving us the menu he did not return to our table until 1 hour later, this was after I had to complain about the us not being served to the manager. He then came to our table took our food order and drink order. After waiting 30 minutes for the drinks, he came back and asked if we would like to make a food order. This was two hours into our seating. The manager offered free shots to make up this. When the food came, you can tell it was rushed, the shrimps were burnt and it was very raw. I have been to Cavali before and the service was nice like this. The manager then comp us two free meals.

    I was just disappointed in the service , we sat for for the first 45 minutes with nothing served , we had to ask for something because all guests were so hungry, I was unaware they didn't serve anything until after a hour of sitting, not even bread or anything to just nibble on. 2nd main issue was the waitress, she was nice but she didn't understand a great deal of English or how to explain the drinks and the orders were all wrong and confusing and in the end it was just a mess as far as the drinks were. We later had a waitress added and she was fast and quick and explained that she could help with what messed up but she definitely she was a huge help. If you have a large party , they should have the bar open and also 2 waitresses, at all times!! I was told I would have the birthday Sign come out when they bring the cake and that didn't happen also. I am sorry my guests had to experience all the confusion and this was the first for me ever to go thru this. I realize this place is great for young people late hours to drink and have Hookah . Things seems to be nice for young people that go there for late night events, Dee Jay and hookah and bar service. This place doesn't benefit for people for large adult party. To make it worse, I chose not to bring a birthday cake/ cup cakes inside because that was 50.00 !!! Cupcakes you didn't need to be cut or anything so I thought that was crazy. Well this was my experience and Never again.

    Went out for Brunch for a friends birthday. The waitress was very polite and attentive. The food was really good. The endless drinks were also tasty (especially the sangria). The restaurant was lounge vibes with good music. The only thing that I did not like the fact that our party could not be placed at one table. We had a party of 13 and had to split amongst two booths that were across from each other. It was kind of weird but we made it work. It was a nice experience overall.

    This was the worst restaurant to ever celebrate your birthday at. Let’s start off by saying if you’re bringing your own birthday cake be aware that they will charge you a $50 fee if they don’t already tell you which they didn’t tell us. The appearance of the restaurant wasn’t bad at all I must say but there was so many down falls with the restaurant that the appearance didn’t matter. When we sat down at our table the first thing that we noticed was extremely dirty cups and silverware. The place was extremely cold and we had to keep our jackets on unfortunately. The customer service was horrible we waited over 20 mins for someone to come to our table and take our orders and another 20 mins for our drinks let’s keep this in mind THE PLACE WAS EMTPY ! The hookah was horrible The food was very bland NO SEASONING . The drinks were not the drinks we asked for , their strawberry margaritas didn’t have any margarita mix and the Rum punch taste like straight coconut. The music was extremely low and they played the same songs over and over . Back to customer service we had a horrible server she barely came to our table to even check in with us . Every time she did come we had to rush to order a whole bunch of things because we knew she wouldn’t be back until another 30 minutes. Again I would not recommend this place to anyone especially when celebrating a birthday the only reason we stayed is because we had a $200 deposit down already which is NON REFUNDABLE.

    My group and I had multiple issues that caused me to not enjoy my birthday and experience for a good portion of the night. Once those issues were resolved, I enjoyed the night and place. I would recommend Cavali now because they rectified the situation. If you asked me based on the beginning of the night it would be a hard no.

    Brunch review: Food: simple, not too extravagant. Few items on list were out of stock. The pitchers were small and it’s one waitress for my group of 8 people. Although she was nice, she wasn’t able to fill our drinks back as often as possible. Later one when a complaint was made, a larger pitcher appeared at the end of the night (which we were told they didn’t even have). Ambience: the place is very nice. Large open space. Nice couches and picture perfect areas. Others were there celebration a birthday as well and the manager told them that a certain type of dancing isn’t allowed and they need to sit down. Service: here is my issue. There are A LOT of hidden fees. The manager himself told me that they have it in the smallest fine print that if you bring your own cake/cupcake, there is $100 cutting fee which is absolutely absurd. Saw this place on tik tok. Personally thought I would’ve been nice to go to for my 27th birthday. Should’ve listened to the other reviews about certain things.

    This is my second time visiting Cavali. The first time I went with a friend and I had to come back with a large group for a birthday because of how incredible our experience was! The food is halal which is amazing, beautiful decorations, everyone is so attentive and sweet. I highly recommend Cavali! It has the best vibes, decorations, food, the place is elegant and incredible for large events! They turn into a club I believe at 11pm so we went for dinner at 8pm. Will definitely be returning back!! This place is such a gem!

    Food was good and nicely priced. Bottle prices were outrageously expensive and poor selection of wine. $80 for a bottle of wine you buy at Walgreens for $7. If you are spending $1000+ on dinner, bottles should be much less than when you are there just for drinks and hookah. Waiter was very nice. Music was good. I would go again if I find out they added few bottles of Pinot Noir or Cabernet on the menu for decent prices.

    I don’t know where to begin with this foolishness. The White Sangria that took 40 mins to make and serve tasted like bitter water with apples. The Chicken and Waffles was a complete disaster. It’s very hard to over cook chicken however tada they made it happen. I was hoping this was going to be a great brunch however it was overpriced and underwhelming.

    The sever Jordan was AMAZING.. The Operations Manager Lee was so horrible. I do not know how anyone can let such a person be in charge of there establishment. The food was horrible as well. Steak was dry, chicken had no seasoning waffles were crunchy... The Red sangria was good. We reserved bottles before we could even finish brunch Lee is advising us we had to pay for our bottles which we were very much aware of... we go to the section which the waiter provided for us to sit for bottles here comes Lee of you cant have three tables mind you there is NO other parties in the club EXCEPT us. So we advised when people come we will move without a issue. We are not sitting he comes over again informing us while standing we have to have a mask on mind you there are other tables standing without mask, him nor the staff themselves had on mask. We felt very mistreated, and racially profiled i would not recommend this establishment to anyone.
