Greek
Prepare to indulge in unique Greek-inspired dishes, skillfully crafted by talented Chef Dimitri Moshovitis. All dishes are served mezze style—in small plates, but with portions large enough to share. Cava’s mezze-style dining inspires conversation and laughter at the table. The dim candle-lighting and black and white family photos adorning Cava’s charming brick interior walls creates a welcoming atmosphere. A dining experience at Cava is incomplete without a glass of wine. So pair your meal with one of our upscale, yet affordable wines.

I love the environment and energy every time I visit. Our server was a amazing, very patient with half my party arriving late. I will continue to come back and enjoy the food. I try something new every time and haven’t been disappointed yet.

The food was not good that day. I’m not certain if the chef Dimitri was there but it wasn’t good. I normally love Cava Mezze but it was terrible.

We were seated outdoors upstairs on a chilly, drizzly New Years Eve night during the pandemic. The bartender and waitstaff were very cordial and the food was very good. Only one other couple was seated in our area. The owner’s music playlist was right up my alley! Although open air, we were under cover and propane heaters took the edge off of the weather. It turned out to be a lovely evening and one to remember. Stay strong!

Honestly I have always had a great experience for brunch here. Victor and Dave have always taken great care of our party. The constant experience every single time has me always returning with my friends to have great service and an even better time with the Cava Crew. Food, ambience, and energetic staff make it 5/5 stars every single time.

Last minute looking for quick walk to dinner. They had one table left outside and we were promptly seated and served some great bread and spicy sauce. Good menu and everyone picked something they liked. Reasonable priced bottle of wine was great.

Enjoyed the sidewalk patio in a rainy day in DC. The brunch was paced very well and allowed for time to enjoy good conversation. $.25 mimosas 🌈🌟

Cava Mezze maintains total adherence to COVID-19 safety protocols which makes dining there so comfortable and the rooftop is an entire mood and the heat lamp keeps you toasty without overheating. Food is always consistent.

We were sat on the rooftop for open seating and it was semi-open for air flow, the covered bar area - not so much. I also didn’t feel like we were 6ft from the next table - the guy sitting behind my friend was max 2, maybe 3 feet away. The food was good, my friend and I ordered 1 a la cart Meal for brunch each and my meal came out a good 5 mins before hers. It would’ve been better to have been served together. There was also a really rowdy group next to us, which took away from the experience.

Overall, I’d say the total experience was okay, but I don’t think I’d go back right now with COVID. I didn’t feel super comfortable.

Great food, large portions and lots of drinks. Service was good, although they had trouble getting some of our dishes out at the same time. Rooftop seating was great during COVID.

I love Cava but I wouldn’t recommend the brunch mania option. And their 25 cent mimosas is pure juice. They can’t add more champagne since it’s already made in a carafe.
I like their menu better outside of their brunch option.

Celebrating an exam complete and cooler temps were sweet. crazy feta and good house wine. The cauliflower and corn salad were sublime. Everyone was nice and I liked the price.
Gyros were fab. I picked up the tab. BF was glad.
Walked home with a full belly...the garlic was good, but left my breath smelly!
