This was my second time coming here for brunch, but it's been a few years. The food was fantastic! But the food was dropped off at our table in odd intervals. We were a group of 6 and ordered brunch mania (a price fix 3 course brunch). We all ordered at the same time yet each got our first course at different times, even for some of us who ordered the same thing. My second course came before my friend's first even arrived. It felt a little disjointed that we were all eating separately but the food was good and had generous portions. I'd give it another chance but it was not the best brunch in the area I've had.
Excellent dips and starters which we enjoyed so much we did not try the entrees The service was friendly and unobtrusive.
Absolutely delicious! The food is incredible. You will leave feeling so happy and full - the staff is amazing too, shoutout to Gillian!!
The bunch mania is great and a great value (I always end up taking the last course to go). Service is friendly. Outdoor patio is covered. Good vegetarian options.
We went for brunch and had an amazing time, the potatoes especially were to die for!
Absolutely delicious and creative Greek food.
Cava Mezze is one of my favorites. I’ve been coming to the Capitol Hill location for years. The food and service are always great! Forever a go-to!
Delicious and flavorful food. Great service!
I really enjoyed this experience! The food was AMAZING! The vibe was mild, but most of all, the food was AMAZING! I took my partner to try some food out of his comfort zone and he loved it! This will definitely become a favorite for us.
We went with a group of 4 yesterday for brunch. We have been to cava mezze many times at the baltimore location before it closed. I do prefer the tapas style they used to have. Now it is a pick three option with bigger portions. I understand with covid they had to change things up, but it was the all you can eat tapas style that really set them apart from other brunch spots. The food was “eh” to me this time. The French toast was covered in whipped cream so much that the bread was soggy. The banana fritters didn’t have much flavor. The food came at in all different orders despite the menu being in “courses” and it just felt kind of messy. We honestly didn’t eat most of the food. The service was slower than normal and our server seemed impatient or maybe just overwhelmed. Not sure we’ll be back sadly.
We went for Restaurant Week. They give you a pretty decent menu to choose from for the price fixe. It's mezze, so sharable portions but smaller than entrees. We got the village salad, feta hush puppies, steak slouvaki, lamb sliders & nutella mini donuts. The entrees were good 7.5 but not great, steak was abit chewy & the lamb was alright, I've had better lamb. Their apps & desserts & ambience really makes for a great date night!
Delicious food!! and actually I found the menu changes (from tapas to a 3 course) to be a good change. I was nervous the 3 course brunch mania wasnt going to be as filling as a bajillion tapas, but there was enough food in each dish to share with the table and try a little bit of everything.
Absolutely horrible. Greasy, cold - both the service and the food, that is.
Menu is just a little different. It broke my heart that they’ve deconstructed the gyro hash brown. It was still delicious, but not the same. I miss the old menu very much 😭 I need the old menu back, when they had fried pork belly on there. Those were the days. But the key thing that is important here, is knowing, even with the changes the food is still delicious! So I will return. I love the staff. They have always been great friendly people. I would advise you if you are wondering if you should go or not, GO! It’s delicious. That is all. 😋
Restaurant was attractive, we ate inside - the air-conditioning was very cold! The food was great, service not so much. We ordered a bottle of the Greek white wine, which was served room temperature. I explained to the waitress that the temperature was off and she brought me a bucket of ice! Did not offer to replace it with a cool bottle. The worst part was at the end of the evening she plopped the check on the table without ever coming back and saying everything OK would you like some dessert anything else I can get for you. Really ended the evening in a bad way, hence the three star rating.
The food is always delicious, but ask things have opened up they definitely are still working out the kinks of getting back to normal. Service was pretty slow and a little spotty, but I'll still return.
I usually love the Brunchmania at Cava but today’s experience was horrendous. The spicy lamb sausage was undercooked and the food items did not come out in a timely manner.
We had such a great time! Dave was super helpful!
Cava was super chill and has great brunch prices. The food was alright. It needed more flavor.
This is an excellent value for brunch. The hush puppies and potatoes were excellent.
Cava Mezze is a fantastic restaurant for meeting friends. Delicious food, awesome service, and nice ambiance!
Have been coming to Cava for years, it’s good to be back. Great food, service and atmosphere.
Everything on the menu exceeds your expectations. The quality and creativity of this menu is extremely high.
Great service as well! Well informed staff - who provided excellent information and recommendations.
Was disappointed that the Cava Fries were not as good as I remember. Everything else was good
Our meal was delicious and very fresh. Our kids found they really like Greek food and Cava Mezze introduced us to great Greek food
This restaurant was a great Sunday brunch find. Great food and very affordable brunch option.
Complimentary appetizer biscuits came late, eventually got them after finishing entree
Had to send entree (chicken pita with scrambled eggs) back because it had been clearly sitting and got cold
Fly found in my cocktail
Waiter wasn’t terrible but everything was a struggle, would not go back
My go to spot for Greek tapas. I've never been disappointed with a food selection. Service is typically better than it was during my last visit: server only stopped by the table twice. We had to flag him down to order food and any time we needed anything
I woke up with GREAT vibes. Went for Saturday brunch on the weekend of the fourth, 2021. Recommend sitting outside for AMAZING vibes!! Get the French toast and hush puppies form the brunch menu—they were delicious. Highly recommend!!
Perfect place for an early family dinner prior to attending the Evening Parade at Marine Barracks, D.C. Rooftop seating for six under excellent weather contributed to an overall very good customer experience.
Food was delicious. Atmosphere was unremarkable but nice. Minimal crowd. Pleasant and attentive wait staff.
I have had nothing but positive experiences at this restaurant. I recently had brunch here with two of my closest friends from out-of-town and they thought the food was incredible. They said they can’t wait to come back during their next visit to DC! Thanks for always being tasty Cava Mezze!
The food was amazing. Each dish had layers of flavor, and the donuts were a wonderful way to end the meal.
The dining experience was very good. Nice happy hour selection. Food and drinks nicely priced. Rooftop was quaint. Minimum noise level from the street. Just happy to be out again!!!!
Outstanding service and food
Service was not that great. Had to ask for our food multiple times and our waitress didn’t seem to know much, her answer for every question was “I don’t know/I’m not sure” and never followed up. We waited about 45 minutes for our last “course” which was just a parfait and Brussels sprouts. Food was not that great, especially after waiting extended times between dishes. I can understand if it was busy but it was not. Mimosas were the only good thing, food was definitely not worth the price point.
It was great as always! Will be back!!
Great Food Great Fun & Great Customer Service
Best brunch in the area!
