Nice servers, especially during COVID - they had a nice attitude, were attentive and also exercised good hygiene. Foods always good, but service stood out compared to some of my other COVID dining experiences.
My family thoroughly enjoyed Cava Mezze! The food is creative and delicious. The service was superb and everyone on staff was so warm and welcoming. This restaurant has a beautiful patio and we’ll be back to visit it!
Our server and the rest of the staff made my birthday very special!
Food as always was awesome. The cheese-on-fire, and grilled octopus are particularly good. The back patio is perfect for Covid dining.
My friends and I typically enjoy Cava for both brunch and dinner. It’s a great spot. We were really excited to finally get together for a brunch following the reopening of restaurants. However, the service was horrible. It took an hour and a half to get our food, we asked the waiter several times where it was and he kept saying it was coming. Finally a manager came over and asked how everything was going and it was determined that 3/4 of our food had been given away to another table. After another 15-20 minutes all of the food finally came. Then when it came time to get the check, we were charged full price for our drinks.
To be fair, there was a large group in our section that seemed to require a lot of attention. Also, it’s understandable that restaurants are still working out the kinks. Nonetheless I think it’s safe to say that we won’t be back to Cava until everything is back to normal.
The Brunch menu has changed (no more unlimited tapas plates) so, we were not prepared for that but you still get a lot of food. Great service and food. French toast was delicious.
Birthday dinner and we were pleased with the spacing between tables with limited seating and other safety precautions.
Very nice service and enjoyed the small plate variety!
Super safe and awesome experience!!
Delicious and server was great
Good place for brunch. Would recommend to a friend
Never disappoints! My favorite meal in Arlington. Good food, good wine, good service.
Service was AMAZING! Food was so good. Overall an amazing experience!
Surprisingly good food quality for brunch given the price. Service was excellent and very receptive.
Awesome food! We love it here.
I’ve been before, I think the 2-3 person platter is not worth it, better off getting individual entrees.
We went to celebrate a birthday (group of 4) and I was the only one who had eaten there before. The couple that went with us had several diet restrictions and were still very pleased with the options and enjoyed their food. One complaint was that some of the drinks on the menu were not available due to brunch that had happened earlier in the day. Our reservations were at 5:30 pm so I didn't understand how the drinks could not just have been made to order. Overall, good dinner. We'll be back.
Such an amazing brunch spot.
Great food and cocktails. Portion sizes are small.
Bottomless brunch- food was good, service was very slow
We enjoyed our visit and the delicious food. The service was very good.
Portions have gotten smaller from a year ago. The food is excellent, but the value is poor.
What an amazing place. Portion sizes seem to small but super filling. The pita and harissa dip was awesome. Great for date night.
Amazing experience as always! Awesome service and the best food.
Our dinner was quite pleasant if busy. The waiter warned us up front that the restaurant was busy, and did his best to keep things moving.
Great service, food and environment!!
The food is fresh and delicious. The staff is prompt and corteous.
Always a great time!
The waiter forgot one of our items and asked us to leave after we paid the check because he had a reservation coming. There were plenty of other open tables. Terrible service.
Food was amazing...a bit too loud to have a decent conversation without yelling! I’ll definitely go again!!
The food was decent, some of the bread items were a little hard (French toast, English muffins for the Benedicts which were 1/4 of the menu). Service was pretty good until AFTER we paid our bill and tipped the waiter. With a two hour time limit for brunch, we had been seated less than an hour and 40 mins (after arriving early for our reservation and being seated late) the waiter kept pressuring us to give up the table even though we still had food and each had a full mimosa left to drink.....the waiter repeatedly came back to remind us that he needed to give up the table, he came back 3 times within 4 mins making us feel very awkward. Wish we hadn’t tipped before this. Decent meal for an okay price but service was disappointing in the end. Despite the tasty food, we left with a bitter taste in our mouths because of the waiter repeatedly pressuring us to leave.
Food portions are on the mid-small side. If you are very hungry you will end ordering 2 entrees.
Great food and service.
Two of our dishes came out more than 60 minutes after we ordered. I tried to cancel but he brought it anyway (and still charged us). A couple of the dishes were covered in a sweet sauce not described on menu. And come on $12 for 4 bites of cauliflower is ridiculous. Server was inattentive. Wine too expensive for quaity. We liked this place in the past but are unlikely to return.
Everything was great! Service was a little slow for lunch, I expect weekday lunch service to be a little more attentive but the servers were nice and gave great menu suggestions, but I had to flag someone down several times for refills and a dessert menu and the bill... so that was my only issue. Keep up the great food!
Favorite restaurant in the Arlington area; great place for food, drinks, brunch, ambiance, etc. Highly recommended.
Noisy, crowded, poor service, can't get orders right but has two receptionists to tell walk-ins there's a two hour wait, that won't be the case for long!
Great food, great service! Fun atmosphere
Still a solid neighborhood spot. Service is inconsistent but food is always at least pretty good for price point. Can be loud.
