    Our server had an off night and apparently forgot to put our main food orders in, leading to a 20-minute plus delay. Also brought the wrong cocktail to the table. We are fans of this original CAVA and were surprised service slipped for us tonight.

    Food was very good but service was very slow and disorganized. Frequent this restaurant a lot and this was a disappointing night as we could not get our food and we did not get the initial basket of bread and harissa, as we did not request.

    I love the food at Cava Mezza. I am never disappointed. I come with friends and we always order several dishes and share. The service is very good and friendly. The only complaint I have is that it gets noisy, but that won't prevent me from returning.

    We have been patrons of this Cava, which was the original location, since it first opened and have always been pleased. Yesterday's visit was no exception — everything was great. It happened to be our wedding anniversary and when the waiter found out, we received a free dessert, which was much appreciated.

    It was my wife my first visit. The restaurant is small and crowded, however the service and our food choice was really good. We enjoyed the lamb chops over fries, hummus, and the brussel sprouts. We learned after ordering that the servings are small and that the kitchen does not have a heat lamp, so the food is brought to the table when it is ready and not all at once. Expect members of your dining party to be eating at different times. The small portions worked for us, since we were eating around 8 PM EST.

    Food was good, mimosas strong but service was SLOW SLOW SLOW. Our waiter was nice at first but then he stopped checking on us, took at least 30 mins between each course and mimosas were not flowing. If it weren’t for the other servers and manager (i think) who came and refilled our waters, asked if we were okay, i would have been very very disappointed. It was my sisters bday too😭 Will go to Olney location from now on..
