  • Grilled octupus REALLY is grilled to perfection. Not chewy at all.
  • The Crazy Feta and harissa here are a must!
  • No matter what you order, save room for dessert, because the French Toast is to die for! As is the baklava! And if you ever need "comfort food" an order of lamb chops & Cava fries is a must!
  • This is our favorite place to go to for brunch! The french toast is AMAZING & we love our waitress Heidi to pieces. Yanni is a great waiter also. Other best bets: the lamb chops & the home fries.
  • Happy Hour from 5-7 weekday nights has $4 import bottles and lots of fantastic Greek food for $4 or less!
  • For a newcomer or first-time customer, keep in mind the food here are just tiny appetizers and high quality liquor drinks. If you are looking to eat, not drink, I recommend the Cava Grill instead.
  • Ever is one of the best bartenders!!! Come on Tuesday for $6 Martini/sangria night. The HH is amazing!!!!
  • Lamb burgers, baba ganoush with spicy red pepper spread, flaming cheese, fried zucchini fritters - must I go on?! So yummy, everything.
  • The orzo is amazing!
  • The Saganaki was amazing and the sauteed zuchinni was perfect.
  • Thanks for all the great reviews! CAVA is finally on foursquare.
  • Make sure your mezze order includes the lamb chops.
  • The Stoli Peach White Cosmo is to die for!
  • The Spicy Lamb Sliders are on-point but be prepared for the heat!!
  • The haloumi sliders are AMAZING!
  • The cauliflower is unreal!
  • Their pita pepper dip is GOOD! I can fill up on just that... :-)
  • we made a reservation and then showed up right on time then were told they didn't have our reservation. whats the point???
  • The Lollipop Chicken is fabulous!
  • Saganaki cheese mezze is phenomenal, it's heaven
