Our server was fantastic, I can't remember her name though. However, they handled Covid19 very well compared to some places I've dined in recently

Very disappointed as we had Made reservations on OpenTable on July 4 at 7:30p. Only to arrive and the restaurant be closed. We had walked there from out hotel so we Quickly had to let the other couple know that the restaurant was closed and that we would need to find something else in walking distance. I tried t cancel/ modify my reservation but the app would not allow me to change to McCormick and Schmick which is where we ended up eating.

Service was excellent! Food was great. Very high safety/sanitize standards, 6ft apart and masks. Great first time out since the pandemic. I think the air might night a lil fixing, because it was a tad hot.

As always food was great best value for Brunch in the city. Bottomless mimosas and all you can eat good food. The only thing is.. Its so busy, it can get really loud so there are times were you feel like you need to scream at the people you are at the table

The food tasted very good with the exception of the pork souvlaki. It had a funny taste, almost to the extent of tasting like not properly cooked lamb. The next day, however, three out of the four of us had stomach issues. That is the only place that we all ate at the same place over the past few days. The issue with the noise level was due to one table. They were excessively loud and I was hoping management would step in to ask them to keep it down. We were happy when they finally left. We have eaten there many times and always had a good experience.

Reservations made through open table for a time slot of 2:30pm. Arrived a little before to be told the party seated at our table were being “difficult” and were not ready to leave. We saw a table being cleared that looked like it could accommodate our group. But the hostess insisted that it was not intended for a party of 6. We were a party of 5. After clarification of our party size, hostess insisted management would not approve seating us at the available booth. Shortly after we were finally seated; late. All was well with the food and delivery of the food and such. However we were then told last kitchen entries were going in by 3:30pm. This did not allow for the 2 hours that are normally given to earlier reservations. Management came out and spoke with us after we voiced complaint with our waitress. Explained that the time restrictions are noted on the website. Our complaint was that we should not have been given the option to book a 2:30pm reservation if we would have to abide by the 3:30pm cutoff time. We were comped the price of a brunch and given a dinner voucher for our grievance. Overall our experience was fair. We always enjoy going there for brunch as the food is phenomenal and the drink specials are great. Generally speaking of this last particular experience with our reservations, the sense that we were being rushed was not well accepted. There should be a clear display that if you are making reservations late, you should not expect the full two hours for brunch. Or not allow the public to make reservations past 1:30pm if cutoff is at 3:30pm.

First I just want to say everything and I mean EVERYTHING my boyfriend and myself had was nothing short of amazing. Our waitress was on point with tending to us. The waits were not long at all. The entire place in general is a whole vibe and great music to go with it. 35 bucks for all you can eat and 25 cent mimosas...you cant beat that. Yes, the portions are small but within that 2 hour time frame ,trust me you'll have a satisfied belly . I definitely recommend this place for dates and group events.

Service was a little chaotic - we had like eight different people bring our food, and they all just wandered around looking confused until they found the right table for a given dish. But we didn't mind, they were all friendly, and the food was fantastic.

The food was delicious. No complaints there. The service, however was absolutely terrible. 15 mins at the table before being asked about drinks or appetizers. It was almost impossible to get a server to come by to ask for something when needed. When we did finally get service food orders were completely forgotten and not brought to the table. Overall seems like a nice place but the wait staff was horrendous.

Service was very bad. I went here with my girlfriend on Valentine's Day and the system of food/drinks coming out were horrendous. My girlfriend had gotten her drink first and my drink didn't show up till 20 minutes later. She also received food first while I had to wait 20 more minutes for my food so by the time my food arrived, my girlfriends food had gotten cold. There were also multiple people serving us and it felt like there was a lack of communication. Multiple times food from another table was given to us and we had to reject it since it wasn't what we ordered. The food was decent, I had ordered a kabob medium rare that had very tough parts. Overall, the service was terrible, workers are nice, food is okay.

This is such a great place for Sunday brunch. If you arrive at their 10:00 am opening, you can get the $5 discount applied. Food is always wonderful, especially the deviled eggs, steak & eggs, and the pork belly. Oh yeah, the three flavors of mimosas are awesome for only 0.25 each. The best though was our server, Danielle. She is amazing!! She should be included in the "Best of Baltimore" edition. Looking forward to our next time.

Although the food was tasty, it was a bit overpriced. Two scallops for $19 bucks?? Really? Entire bill for 4 was $130 and it was not much food. This is a great place to take girlfriends but not for most men.

Great time out with friends for my birthday, food was good, i just wished it wasn't so loud (guests voice volume) and wish there were more pescatarian food options i wanted the shrimp and grits but it had bacon bits unfortunately. I wanted to bring my husband but there were no vegan options for him. But over all i had a good time and what i was able to eat was very good

Great restaurant overall! Surprising and pleasant flavor combinations. The smaller portions allowed us to try a variety of different plates. Service was fantastic. Not pretentious, very comfortable setting but still nice and very cozy...perfect atmosphere for dates and family dinners alike. If you like Cava, you will LOVE Cava Mezze....it has options for everyone...vegans, vegetarians, gluten free and meat eaters! The falafel and the crazy feta hush puppies are especially delicious...yum!

Cava Mezze is definitely a must-go place at least once. Their brunch is the best deal if you LIKE brunch and LOVE mimosas. The ambience is great, the food is tasty, and the service is phenomenal. Very accommodating, too, to those that may have food allergies.
