This was our first time at Cave Bistro. We went Valentines Weekend, I loved the entire feel of the place as soon as we walked in. It was warm and eclectic. The food was delicious, we follow a Paleo-ish lifestyle. It was all delicious and full of flavor. I had the bison burger and my husband had the rib eye. We had the pork tacos as an appetizer and the nut butter brownie for dessert. We will definitely be back, service was exceptional.

Excellent restaurant, service and food was great. The Grass-fed hamburger, with the truffle oil duck fat fries were excellent. One thing I was would add would be the truffle duck fat fries to the sides portion of the menu, currently the only way to get these fries is with the grass fed hamburger. Overall my experience here was excellent, and I am without a doubt going back.

We have been going there for three years now. It’s never to loud ( well in the summer when it’s packed it might be) and the service is great always. The only ever disappointment was the elk. But everything from need to fish is outstanding. The flavors that come out of the kitchen are like no other. It’s a great experience. Clean eating!!!

This was our first time at Cave and we were delightfully surprised. All of our meals were excellent beginning with Brisket sliders (clearly a meal by itself) shared by 2 people in our party. Brisket on plantains with aioli sauce. Excellent! Two others in our party had the arugula salad and gave it a thumbs up! Two of us had the salmon in Thai bowl, my husband, a vegan, for medical reasons, had the risotto & roasted brussel sprouts and was very pleased. The 4th person in our party had the marrow burger and loved it, although not thrilled that the Chef doesn’t believe in offering catchup, because it masks the taste of the meat. Service was excellent and the only reason for a 4 star is that the menu is meat driven with only one offering of fish and limited options for non meat eaters. That being said, we will be back when my husband is up for the risotto small plate for dinner again.

Cave' Bistro has excellent, well sourced, healthy dishes. I was completely satisfied by the Paleo/Gluten Free offerings. The Roasted octopus appetizer, arugula salad, Marrow burger w/ duck fat fries, Grass-fed ribeye w/ Parmesan fries and spinach...are all awesome. I haven't been pleased by everything I've ordered at Cave' and I am a repeat customer many times over.

If you're looking for locally sourced, organic gluten free cooking this is where you can find it! I had pan seared swordfish over Japanese eggplant in a tomato ragout that was incredible! Best swordfish i've ever had! I started with roasted tomato and bacon soup and a pan seared romaine salad with an incredible dressing, bot courses were great! First time I've been here ever though they've been operating for SIX years! Tell your friends! This place is a super-find! PS...It's BYOB which I'm liking more and more!

It was nice to eat in a restaurant that I didn't have to ask a million questions to be assured that I wasn't getting "glutened". I enjoyed the bottles of wine we brought and relaxed.
I was bummed we didn't get a chance to speak to the Owner/Chef Dave as another table hoarded him - lol But did thank him on the way out. Only thing I would say is that this food came out super duper fast, I mean we were done eating in a hour. So if you are people like us and want some time in between your courses make sure you your service. Can't wait to go back and try other items on the menu.

We enjoyed our dining experience at this establishment. Our server was friendly and informative. The chef, Doug Made it a point to stop by our table and chat with us for a few minutes. This put a personal and friendly feel to our date night out. The food was appealing and tasty as well as being presented in a appetizing way. We will revisit this location and recommend it to friends and family.

Small stark seating for the prices and hype. Brought a nice wine with us but staff didn’t seem to know what a decanter was. Food was really tasty but for the price we’ll go elsewhere

Nice out of the way restaurant except they served watermelon with my grouper. I understand it’s gluten free but to make you pay for vegetables is a little obvious cash grab.

Thanks for dining with us so why was it unexpected? Cash grab? A false conclusion. The truth is that accompaniments costs are the smallest costs compared to the entree the care immense; the cost significant. Potatoes & bread cost way less.

Amazing meal. Creative and healthy selections and high quality. Food is priority and service is also good. They need acoustic panels or more sound absorbing solutions. The noise is elevated due to high ceilings and all hard surfaces throughout. It’s byob which is a bonus for most. It’s eclectic in aesthetic which is cool. Loved the arugula salad with delicious dressing and one of the best rib eye steaks ever. Highly recommend you try it!

This is our favorite place to go when my son visits from Virginia..been coming here for years and never ever disappointed..I tell everyone to give it a try. I pretty much always get the same dish for dinner-zoodles and bolognese and just love it. It is a warm cozy atmosphere. Only wish I lived closer so I could enjoy it even more often.
Thank You for helping us all be more Healthy!
