The Ambience was amazing music loud and nice service could of been better the only bad part was I brought a cake for my friend birthday that cost 30 but you guys want me to pay 50 to bring out the cake that was wrong when I had 10 people and pay over 300 worth

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.

The Waiter made this experience horrible. I waited 45 minutes for an appetizer and every time we asked for drink waited 15 to 20 minutes. Had to ask multiple waitresses for assistance to get some service. My 1st time going here and most definitely the last. Spent over $200 and was treated horribly.

Restaurant was beautiful but we spent $500 and left completely sober after the bottomless brunch. Mimosas are mostly juice with a splash of champagne. For the money spent this was really ridiculous. The waiter was also very nice, but he said he couldn’t add more champagne because the mimosas are premade. Unfortunately I would not return nor recommend.

The food is good, drinks are good, music was good could’ve been a little louder. Our server she was great always asking if we needed something the only thing is it takes too long to get the food. The hookah was good favorite flavor is watermelon. Love the environment, the place is big.

It was okay , I wanted a low table and the lady there gave me a high table , and when we ask the girl can we have a low table , she said this is the only table that we could get and there was nobody at the low tables.

The service was terrible, my party waited 3 hours for food and never got it. We asked to see the manager and he didn’t want to speak to us. They lied and said we got everything we ordered and handed us a bill with the wrong amount.

This was the most horrible food service ever received, it took the waitress three times to forget about a simple coke I ordered only to come back and say they are out of coke then I asked for a sprite she forgot to get the sprite only to have a different waitress come over and say there was some miscommunication but we don’t have sprite either after finishing my meal and not having my beverage , the food was definitely nothing to brag about , but the waitress was very terrible and took almost an hour for her to come back and order my dessert that she said she was gonna come back and take my order for will not be returning and will not recommend this place to anyone

Music was good. We ordered two drinks that were pretty good as well. We waited a hour for our food. Our waitress came to us twice to ask if our food had came yet so at the point we didn’t want anything else but to leave. I was upset bc it was a nice setting and the music was good but the service was definitely trash. We drove a hour away from home just to have a sh***y night.

Ahem. Water down tequila. Rude server. Who TF wants to eat a wagyu burger while listening to club music. Hookahs were pretty good. But overall not the best. Unfortunately
