Had Lunch- wonderful selection of really tasty food, service was attentive but allowed the table conversation to run freely and was not obtrusive.
Very good value -- A keeper and something to repeat.

Went here for a casual date before I had work. As a server I tend to be very hyper aware of my surroundings and level of service. We sat at the bar and our bartender didn’t disappoint. Immediate greet had great suggestions. 10-10 ps the coffee is from ceremony so only thing I wouldn’t recommend.

My food was cold and I didn’t know that if I didn’t do bottomless brunch that I was just getting small plates so my expectations were thrown off a bit. Now that I know how it operates I would try it again but I’m definitely hesitant

Cava is a great spot for a business luncheon or a dinner with friends. The food is always great and the servers are attentive but not overbearing. This has become a go-to for mid-week lunches!

Chicken was not cooked for the chicken and waffles. Most orders were cold. I was not impressed by any of the food on the Sunday brunch menu. I would not return and I would not recommend to anyone.

It was good, but the food wasn’t wasn’t spiced as well as usual. The calamari was fried too hard and the accompanying sauce wasn’t awesome. However, the overall experience was very nice.

We had an excellent time on a slow day after a holiday early dinner. Our service was friendly and excellent. We asked the server for suggestions on a few dishes and her suggestions were both excellent. We especially liked the thin sliced potatoes and the crispy cauliflower. The house wine was very good. The pita bread was fresh and hot. Only complaint is that it could have been a touch warmer in there and they need to get the road construction out front finished.
Thanks for a great pre-movie dinner.

I went to Cava Mezze brunch 2 weeks ago and then came back last weekend. The price is absolutely reasonable and all the small plates are fantastic. The staff is excellent at getting the food out quickly. And everything tasted amazing. I would definitely recommend.

Great service as always. Maybe place a sign outside the door during construction to let patrons know exactly the location of the restaurant. It can be a bit confusing while walking to find the spot.

Went for brunch on Saturday. The food was delicious, service was great - drinks were on point. I highly recommend this place, but make sure your entire party orders the brunch and doesn’t order a la carte. When the weather is nice (and there isn’t construction) you can opt for an outside table.
I’ve been for dinner too...but brunch is my favorite.

We didn’t get to enjoy the full brunch traffic was crazy downtown in Baltimore. I felt rushed and didn’t get to enjoy the full experience. There Is a lot of confusion with brunch and dinner transition. Hosts at the front could be more friendlier. Very noisy, food was good.

Initially, our food was arriving to the table cold. After making our waitress aware, the food arrived hot. Grapefruit mimosas were very good AND they were 25 cents.

I went for brunch. They offer 2 options - an all you can eat for $35 and a la carte. If you order 5 things off the all you can eat menu (which is totally doable since the plates are small), it tends to come out in your favor. If you want anything off the other menu, or if you're not that hungry, go a la carte. The food is good and the service is quite fast. The brussels sprouts at this place are solid. The space is extremely noisy. There's nothing in the industrial design/decor that buffers sound, so a regular level of conversational background noise ends up being so loud you have to point to what you want on the menu because the waiter might not hear you otherwise. Seriously, I think they should consider switching to paper menus where you check off the items you want with a pencil. It is that loud.

Myself and a friend went here for the first time last week to have lunch. I ordered the chicken slovakia and my friend order chicken pieces and meatballs. My food was extremely bland, but my friend enjoyed hers.

I would return for drinks and try another meal as well.

Love the small plates to share concept and the food was excellent. Our waitperson forgot to put in our lamb meatball order even though we ordered it at the same time as our other plates. Unfortunately he did not own up to it when asked about the lamb after we had long since finished our other dishes. He just said it would be out shortly and then I witnessed him putting in the order after my inquiry. If he had just owned up to the simple mistake we may have ordered something different or gotten dessert and our check.

l only food that was just ok was the skillet cakes. I was disappointed that this particular location could not make my poached eggs cooked hard. I never had that issue at the other locations. Besides that, we had a good time and left satisfied. Don’t go when u have a lot to catch up on because the noise level is very high. As a table of 4, we struggled to hear each other.
