It seemed like the kitchen was in a rush, we received our appetizer and salad at the same time... we were not done with our food and here comes the entree... Service was fair at best, presentation of our entree, Blah, the piece of tuna was just laying on the plate, No Presentation what so ever, the cumber summer slaw was just a blob on the other side of the plate.... The Salmon was done nicely...
We were never told about the deserts... even though it was a birthday celebration, and the women that greeted us said Happy Birthday. The other tables had a cupcake with a candle and sang happy birthday we got nothing.... our waitress was bragging that she was there for 7 years.... don't know how...
we would give them another try, anyone can have a off night...
The food was so good and the staff is so nice and very professional. They do have a 1.5 hour limit per table which is understandable in these crazy times but it does make enjoying your glass of wine seem rushed. Not their fault. Highly recommend this restaurant.
Extremely well plated food, and the quality and service was top notch!
Always a good meal.
Great gluten free.imaginative menu.
My husband and I had wanted to try this place for a while. I can’t eat milk and had heard this restaurant was paleo. The menu didn’t seem quite paleo but looked totally gluten free although I eat gluten. They were very accommodating for my dietary restrictions and there were few dairy products on the menu.
The food was good but not consistent. The shrimp appetizer was good but only 4 small shrimp for like $16. My husbands bison burger was really good. I would definitely order that again. I ordered the tuna steak special. It was really bland. It was disappointing and basically on a bed of raw onions with a little cucumber mixed in.
I was disappointed that the restaurant only had one dairy free selection for dessert. It was a cookie that they said was chocolate chip but was definitely coconut. It was actually tasty but I was hoping a paleo restaurant would have more dessert options without dairy. My husband liked his brownie a lot.
Overall we would go back but I’d probably stick with getting small plate items like the burgers and not order the entrees. I also feel confused about what this restaurant is - paleo or just gluten free? The awning on the side says paleo but they definitely have dairy items on the menu.
One of our favorite places - food is always outstanding, service is always amazing
Their food is always delicious! I had the duck special and was very good. Their octopus appy is always tasty.
Because of covid 19 we ate outside, not great ambiance, however the food made up for a poor location.
I had beef cheeks, melted in my mouth.
Bob had blue fin tuna with black rice which although good, got lost in the sauce.
Good service and food! Its a small and quiet restaurant with a seasonal menu. Relaxing venue
Cave is the best!!!!!!! The food is absolutely delish!!!!!
Great food & celiac safe! We will be back!
Absolutely the best!!! You can’t go wrong with ANYTHING on the menu. The specials were stunning!
Overall it was good with exception of the pork tacos. They were overcooked and dry. I was disappointed by the lack of response from the server when I gave the feedback on it too. I left one of them uneaten as a result. There was no acknowledgement or attempt to make for a better experience. Such as suggesting let me provide you with a desert instead. Rather we were charged for taco and the desert we ordered on our own. Server was pleasant but missing the mark on customer service.
The food was outstanding ! We had the buratta special and also the veal chop special. Omg !!!
My new favorite place.
Had the citrus swordfish ..so good ! My husband has the veal. Super tasty. Service friendly and attentive
Great menu and friendly staff. This is a healthy option too.
The food is fresh and excellent
Good selections and variety
Also liked the choice of the 3 and 4 Prixe Fix selections
Kelly our waitress gave us the best service I have ever experienced. Food was great!! We had the octopus and burrata and burgers that were delicious!!
Always fresh and hearty, love the food here. Wish I lived closer I’d be here everyweek!
We enjoyed the food! Grilled octopus, Berkshire pork chop, sliders, salads all terrific. But plates, glasses weren’t clean, food remnants and lipstick on them. Perhaps dishwasher wasn’t properly working? Had to ask for clean tableware, and the servers seemed too nonchalant about it. That was the only drawback. Otherwise terrific food.
Delicious!! Every. Freaking. Time.
Great food and service
We have been coming to this area for about 5 years and somehow we never had heard of Cave Bistro. It was awesome. The food is fresh and simple yet creative. We had the sliders which we loved, a great romaine salad as apps. We shared the salmon and the swordfish which were both outstanding. We finished it off with the lemon blueberry filling whoopee pie which was a different spin and incredible. I can’t wait to go back and I would say this could be the best restuarant in the whole area.
Food was exceptional, prepared and served to the highest level. My wife had an outstanding seafood special while I was treated to perhaps the best burger I had ever eaten (Bison Avocado).
The service matched the food and it was a great pleasure to feast at such an outstanding restaurant.
Food and service terrific as usual. One drawback was the lack of shade from the sun made for an uncomfortable sitting.
Great food and nice people
We were so excited to finally get back to Cavé and it did not disappoint. We ordered 2 of the octopus appetizers - we wished we had 3 - amazing. We shared the tuna and pork specials also equally delicious. We thoroughly enjoyed the meal. The staff was attentive and pleasant. Great date night.
Great meal and service as always.
Fantastic place all around! Can't wait until we can dine inside again.
We love this place! The food is consistency delicious and fresh. Gluten free and dairy free options make it great for us. because of cover, there is only outside dining now, which has its downsides, but our server was delightful and that made everything better.
This was my first time at Cavé Bistro. The staff was great. Two of us had the marrow burger and two of us had the bluefin tuna. Everyone was happy with and enjoyed their meals. The desserts were delicious. Overall we had a great experience, would recommend. Thank you!
Very underrated restaurant! The grilled octopus is crispy-charred outside oand so very tender inside.
My tuna of the day was super fresh tasting and on a fabulous pineapple sweet potato hash.
My companion loved her steak— maybe a little bland but excellent cut and well cooked with truffle fries to DIE for.
Outdoor dining —. Pleasant enough with fairly attentive staff—. Felt a little rushed but these are some strange times and we understood.
The food was excellent service was super fast!!
We had our favorite grilled Octopus with a salad. Our daughter had the scallop special. Both were divine!
We ate outside due to covid restrictions, but it was still a lovely experience.
We decided to try Cavé because of all the great reviews it had. Everything we ate was delicious! Make sure you try Cavé it’s amazing!
Given COVID-19 restrictions Cave is doing a good job with Limited outdoor seating.
After a day on the beach we looked on Open Table to see where we might have dinner. Cave Bistro had availability and was highly rated so we jumped on it. Had no idea that it was entirely gluten-free which made it even better! My husband and I shared grilled octopus which was so tender and delicious, amazing pork tacos, and the fabulous bison burger. Before we even left the restaurant I was texting my gluten-free friends telling them they must visit on their next trip to the Jersey shore. Limited seating currently as it’s only outdoors due to the pandemic. Excellent service and BYOB.
