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.

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.
Highly recommended

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.

We look forward to every time we return here. Hard to select what to get each time. This night we both had the arugula salad and sliders- about all we could handle after a day in the sun at the beach. Loved it.

The food was mediocre at best. We didn't know they were closing for the weekend right after us, so they ran out of food items. It was very pricy for the quality of food they serve.

Hello. The quality of our food is what we pride ourselves on. We only purchase the best quality sourced meats, 100% Grassfed/Grass finished beef, pasture raised chicken, sustainable seafood and the freshest organic produce. Also, like many others, we are still adjusting to the Covid Era of restaurant service. We have only been reopened in a limited capacity to serving actual diners for a few weeks while also managing a massive influx of takeout orders. Our overall 4.8 rating speaks volumes.

My husband and I enjoyed the octopus appetizer along with their arugula salad. This was the 2nd night in a row that we ate at Cave! Our daughter ordered the crispy skin salmon with the spiralized cucumbers and onions with just the right touch of Thai basil dressing.
We look forward to returning soon!

It was good. The food was solid. Not solid like hard. It was solid as in good. An example would be when someone asks you how was your trip. Pretty solid bro. So in that instance it means the same thing. The water was really refreshing also. It washed down the meal appropriately. It rained so it was a good thing that their was an awning. An awning is like a tent. But a tent you can’t live in. The owner seemed very nice as he greeted the guests. From a distance of course. Thank you for this experience.

We’ve been coming here for several years after days at the beach. Dinner this evening was outside due to the pandemic. We ate light since it had been a hot day - my wife had the sliders and I had the grilled octopus. Both were excellent. We’re looking forward to going back. The staff was both cheery and officiant.

Thank Heaven Cave Bistro is allowed to have outdoor dining. Doug is an outstanding chef and a great person. Had a nice chat with him and we really enjoyed sitting outside. I didn't think I would like it, but I did enjoy our time outside. Not as noisy and more relaxed.

My first meal out post-quarantine was at Cavé. It was excellent.

The socially distanced dining experience was flawless. The tables are spaced apart appropriately under an awning on a lovely side-street in downtown Avon. I felt safe and secure while enjoying dinner. Staff and the chef-owner were friendly as always.

And now, the most important part, the food. I have been eating at Cavé since the restaurant opened. The food has always been a cut above. I had the Marrow Burger, which is just perfection. Followed-up by the nut butter brownie. Desert is not to be missed.

I look forward to being back soon for dinner again!
