Excellent meal and excellent service! Outdoor heat lamps made the evening very comfortable.
Very slow, make sure you have enough time
Food was excellent but the price value for the wine was poor. $11 a glass of Pinot Noir, although a good wine, is on the high side for a 3 to 4 ounce pour
Everything was great!
Good food but portions were a bit small for the price.
It's nice to have cava as a local option. They weren't at their best on Saturday but overall it was good. The food was pretty good and came out fairly promptly, and the service was nice. And because other diners were taking their time on a nice night and thus clogging up the tables, they created an extra table for us so we wouldn't have to wait any longer (about 20 minutes after our res time). So that was thoughtful.
Less than perfect this time:
- I ordered a martini which came in a strange tumbler style glass.
- It's standard at cava to provide a little pita bread and some pepper salsa but we didn't get any.
- Because of the wait for a table the hostess apologized and promised free desserts - but our waitress wasn't informed and we didn't want to raise it. It wasn't really necessary, but don't offer and then fail to execute.
They offer good outdoor dining
Excellent food and service and plenty of outdoor tables. We will return!
Very good! It was my first rime and I plan to go back soon!
Fantastic French toast!
I’ve come here many times for dinner — which is always fantastic — though this was my first time for brunch. We sat outside, so missed the beautiful ambiance of the dining room. Our family enjoyed the lamb Benedict, lamb sliders and frittata, along with the aptly named flaming cheese which is a Cava Mezze speciality . Everything was excellent and the service was great. Cava Mezze never disappoints.
The food and service were great. Will definitely be back!
Food was delicious, but overall experience was simply pleasant and more like a nice lunch than evening dining. All three food items were delivered quickly, well before the drinks were delivered. I had to ask about the drinks before getting them half way through dinner. We were in and out in 25 minutes, not our actual desire.
I love Cava but this visit was pretty awful! Our server was lousy. He was inattentive and completely unenthusiastic. Unfriendly and just plain bad.
I have celiac and they were really great about dealing with the allergy. They notate dishes that are 100% gluten free with no cross contamination
The best food in Rockville. A must dining spot and great for a date or group. We jsut ask the server to bring their favorites as the menu is a can't miss hit.
The food was excellent as always. Outside seating service was okay, not the best setting of course (Giant and streets), and more could be done to improve it, but with food as the focus, it is fine. I do recommend CAVA!
Good food but a bit overpriced. Thanks
Great outdoor seating and service, excellent food!
Birthday dinner was awesome, my favorite staple is the Brussels sprouts appetizer.
We ate outside, which is why it was quiet, and the food was awesome!
The food and service were phenomenal!!! Every dish was luscious and the servings were generous (we really didn’t need to order 3 tapas each!) We sat outside, which could have been a bit cleaner. That and the fact that it’s pricey are the only slight improvements I would consider less than stellar!
It was fantastic! Brittany is the best and we will be back again & again. When Cava Mezze first opened years ago it was our date night place. We just started going back again and I am sorry we waited so long.
We tried a lot of different mezzes and all were great. The favorites for the group were the dipping tray, lamb chops, watermelon salad, mini gyros, and mediterranean cod.
Food was excellent and service great. Recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to talk and eat great food without feeling you need to be rushed. Small plates give you the ability to try multiple items on menu which all are good.
Great food, excellent service and highly recommend the large platter for a group.
Enjoyable dining experience with very good service. Steak souvlaki was a fave. Tender beef with nice flavor. Hush puppies also very good. Spicy lamb slider could have had more flavor and would be great in a pita rather than an oversized bun. Tahini sauce on the falafel was excellent but the falafel themselves were disappointing and dry.
Never a disappointment! The chicken souvlaki was a little on the dry side, but still tasty. Octopus never fails to satisfy and whatever is going on with that cauliflower dish is pure magic. Nothing crazy fancy, but really gave my taste buds a good time!
Great energy from staff, food was amazing! Such a cute place for date night
Just the absolute best. First time my wife and I had been out, just the two of us, in a long time. Food was outstanding. Drinks were great. Overall, one of our favorite restaurants.
Wonderful meal, as usual!
Our server did not seem to know basics of waiting tables. Bread came before water, which we had to ask for because we were coughing from bread and harissa. Then had to wait long time to put order in. Food came out quick, but had to ask for water refill. Dishes were not cleared promptly or at all before desert, but server was standing around with not much to do. Was a birthday, which I put in reservation, but nothing happened. Less dips offered than before, food quality not as good for a couple of dishes, and decision to make donuts smaller means they are no longer soft in the middle and dry as they do not absorb honey at all. Definitely not the quality that I remember from past Cava Mezze. Maybe Olney is doing better but not sure.
Love this place especially Gus and zoe Zoe is the greatest!
Amazing experience. Excellent service!!
The food was as good as my last visit. Only thing missing was the bottomless brunch like pre-covid. Nonetheless the ambiance and food was great. I will definitely return again with my family
We loved all of our tapas and had amazing service
Food is good and service as well! Will go back.
