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.

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!

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.

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.

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

Greek tapas. We enjoyed the beet salad, Zucchini fritters, and the scallops. Mini gyros not so much…they need more filling stuff.

The food was good. Service was initially slow but picked up. The pricing was okay except for the salad as the portion seemed small for the price.

Had a great meal last night. The food was good. My daughter said we should come here more often. Favorite was the lollipop chicken. We had a reservation and were seated immediately. Social distancing was practiced. Highly recommend.

Great food. We sat for a long time before our server took drink orders. I had to go tell hostess. Once server came she was wonderful. Probably not her fault as the restaurant was very busy. It did not deter from our dining experience.

I celebrated my 27th birthday here and loved it. You get a very intimate ambience and excellent service. My server (Roxanne I believe) was super attentive without being overbearing. The drinks were amazing and the owner himself was making rounds making sure everyone was taken care of. Love it here !
