Birthday dinner with friends. What a cute local BYOB bistro. Based on a gluten-free menu, everything was fresh and well presented. Specials of the day were a sea bass and Peking-style duck dish. Other friend had the special bison-duck & fried-egg topped burger!!

I love Cave Bistro, always great food and service. One of the best Octopus around. Specials, Duck outstand and Fish the best. Only one thing they don't serve bread.

Great service, smiling faces, positive vibes.. thats what you get when you visit Cavebistro! Amazing food with a great casual atmosphere.. you feel like you are in your own kitchen only you don't have to prep, cook or clean up! Farm to table creations that are so delicious will keep me coming back over and over. Love the menu with so much variety with options for everyone cooked to perfection!

The food at Cave is the reason you are there! I absolutely love the clean food with such a home type atmosphere. They even went above and beyond and found a way to create a candle to celebrate my birthday!

Got to try American Wagyu beef for the first time and it did not disappoint! It was cooked perfectly. The soups are always on point and the nut butter brownie was to die for!

love the atmosphere - our waitress was great. Food is always good. Only thing i would say is that for all the french fries they serve they should make a home made ketchup to go with it (they dont serve any because of the sugar...)
definitely will be back

Love this place, but this time ordered the steak medium rare and it came medium well. But they made good and didn't charge for it. Really appreciated it. All in all a great place.

It was fabulous. Can't believe we've never been here; now that my husband is gluten-free it was such a treat to be able to order anything on the menu. Every single thing was amazing we cleaned our plates for sure! Looking forward to going back and trying all the other menu items!

We love the food here. The grass fed beef sliders in plantains is our favorite. Very casual ambiance, and great for eating outdoors in warmer weather. For us, it’s one of the things we look forward to when going to the shore.
