Beautiful location and innovative, flavorful food
Best meal I’ve had at Cavan. New chef is obviously solid, and it shows. Attentive service.
Great food, cocktails and service. Tables were slightly small to relax and enjoy our meal, and the air conditioning might have been broken- it was well above 70 in the dining room. Overall though we loved it and will be back.
The food was average, the zucchini beignets were good but when my shrimp entree came, the shells were on the shrimp and I had to peel them myself, which was odd given the nature of the dish. My friend got the steak and it was two little strips of meat, definitely not enough food for the price.
There was so much hype surrounding this restaurant that I couldn’t wait to go. I had a business associate in town for a dinner meeting with a customer. At first glance we were charmed. We were seated right in center of dining room and promptly given our menus. We were thrilled to learn that it was Restaurant week! After ordering a cocktail, we were asked to move to another table so they could fit more tables in dining room. We obliged and immediately realized that it was a significantly warmer in the new location and they had a floor fan blowing at our feet and legs all evening. We ordered the skate special from the restaurant week menu. The entree looked like it had been sitting under a heat lamp, along with my guests meals, for quite some time. And it was horribly dried out and chewy. The portion sizes were extremely small, I guess due to the restaurant week special, but the overall experience was such a disappointment.
Forgot to mention the super loud hard rock music playing in the dining room. I had to ask them to turn it down but it barely helped. Bad choice.
There are way too many brilliant restaurant options in NOLA for me to waste my time and money here again.
They went above and beyond to make our dinner special!
Wonderful experience!!! My date and I enjoyed everything about our dinner at Cavan’s!!! The food was delicious, especially the fish special, Skate!!! The ambiance and setting were just wonderful!!! We will definitely return for more!!!
This was our way to celebrate our 25th anniversary. We were told it was an up scale brunch. There were very few items to choose from. Our wait staff did not check on us often. (Our plates were cleared by a different staff member) the building was beautiful but the food didnt compare to it. Overall it wasnt what we were expecting.
Cavan is delicious! The best buttermilk pancake I think I've ever had. And Rita and Ashton provide the best service!
Came with my wife for our anniversary and the place was great! The house it’s in is beautiful and really sets the mood for the restaurant. Perfectly crafted cocktails and wine, followed by wonderful food pairings. They were out of the dessert we wanted and comped is a delicious key lime pie for our special occasion. The staff was quite pleasant all around.
The restaurant is very pretty. The server was not enthusiastic. The food was not exceptional.
Great food and service
The atmosphere is so charming and historic
Had an impromptu lunch with my daughter (4yo) and hubs. It was a very “grown up” experience! The food was delicious and the staff very accommodating!
Ambiance was very nice. Food was okay. Enjoyed the experience and would go back.
thoroughly enjoyed our meal.
and our server was perfect!
Wonderful small plate menu. We loaded up on the antipasti, corn fritters and biscuits and gravy. All were very good. Maybe the best antipasti in town.
We had a wonderful dining experience during Coolinary at Cavan!
We arrived a bit early to have a cocktail at the bar. The dining room is gorgeous and historic - definitely has that authentic New Orleans charm. All of our servers were so sweet. We had to wait a little while for our table, which we didn't mind one bit, but they were very apologetic and even offered complimentary sparkling wine. The food was top notch. We had the three course Coolinary menu with the wine pairing, and each course was perfect. All my husband and I could talk about the next day was how good the food was.:)
loved every part of it and a great experience overall!
The food was not as good as I had hoped. The portion was fairly small and the food came out lukewarm. The service was great.
Great dinner in historic home. Nice atmosphere and great food!
The service and cocktails were impeccable but the coolinary menu left much to be desired in terms of flavor. The ambiance is gorgeous and given the reputation we will be back to try again, hoping we just caught them on an off night.
Waitress was lovely to my very ~particular~ Aunt and Uncle. Every bite was great. We did the Coolinary menu, plus a few other things. The key lime pie was maybe the best I've ever had.
Sunday brunch. Service was laid back. Food was great as always. Great ambiance - love the small bar.
Great brunch options in a very cool environment. We have also enjoyed dinner here in the past, but I think brunch was even better.
The food was good the waiter was very attentive without being intrusive. The second floor was very warm even after 8PM. Both the first floor and second floor was very loud. The chimichurri sauce was excellent.
Wonderful dinner experience! Would highly recommend this restaurant!
Cavan is always amazing. Tonight was no exception. The service was fantastic and the food perfect.
Our first visit to Cavan - brunch for 3 of us. The wait staff was superb and the food was very good. Nice casual atmosphere that was good brunch
Celebrating a new job
Love the relaxed feel and overall ambiance. Food was delicious. Gumbo was to die for. Shrimp and Cauliflower grits great as well. My husband and I will most definatly be back.
Coolinary menu is a real bargain and just the right amount of food for me. The house is exquisite and Nick was a great server. The huge drawback is the noise level— everyone had to be heard over the other screamers.
The General manager amanda is really nice and accommodating. Bartenders do a great job of explaining things. The shrimp toast was delicious and the gumbo is unbeatable.
Horrible service, mediocre food, overall very disappointing.
Lunch and cocktails with friends on a Friday. Lovely experience.
Great place! Will be back for sure. Food was awesome.
Lovely historic home with friendly service and great food. Had the shrimp and grits for brunch, peach cake for dessert. Highly recommend!!
They made my sisters birthday brunch so special! so thankful!
House is an amazing piece of New Orleans history and very beautiful. Cocktails at the upstairs bar were delicious. Food was fantastic. Waiter was very knowledgeable and excited about the restaurant. Overall great experience
