Food was delicious, but overall experience was simply pleasant and more like a nice lunch than evening dining. All three food items were delivered quickly, well before the drinks were delivered. I had to ask about the drinks before getting them half way through dinner. We were in and out in 25 minutes, not our actual desire.

I love Cava but this visit was pretty awful! Our server was lousy. He was inattentive and completely unenthusiastic. Unfriendly and just plain bad.

I have celiac and they were really great about dealing with the allergy. They notate dishes that are 100% gluten free with no cross contamination

The best food in Rockville. A must dining spot and great for a date or group. We jsut ask the server to bring their favorites as the menu is a can't miss hit.

The food was excellent as always. Outside seating service was okay, not the best setting of course (Giant and streets), and more could be done to improve it, but with food as the focus, it is fine. I do recommend CAVA!

The food and service were phenomenal!!! Every dish was luscious and the servings were generous (we really didn’t need to order 3 tapas each!) We sat outside, which could have been a bit cleaner. That and the fact that it’s pricey are the only slight improvements I would consider less than stellar!

It was fantastic! Brittany is the best and we will be back again & again. When Cava Mezze first opened years ago it was our date night place. We just started going back again and I am sorry we waited so long.

We tried a lot of different mezzes and all were great. The favorites for the group were the dipping tray, lamb chops, watermelon salad, mini gyros, and mediterranean cod.

Food was excellent and service great. Recommend this place to anyone looking for a place to talk and eat great food without feeling you need to be rushed. Small plates give you the ability to try multiple items on menu which all are good.

Enjoyable dining experience with very good service. Steak souvlaki was a fave. Tender beef with nice flavor. Hush puppies also very good. Spicy lamb slider could have had more flavor and would be great in a pita rather than an oversized bun. Tahini sauce on the falafel was excellent but the falafel themselves were disappointing and dry.

Never a disappointment! The chicken souvlaki was a little on the dry side, but still tasty. Octopus never fails to satisfy and whatever is going on with that cauliflower dish is pure magic. Nothing crazy fancy, but really gave my taste buds a good time!

Our server did not seem to know basics of waiting tables. Bread came before water, which we had to ask for because we were coughing from bread and harissa. Then had to wait long time to put order in. Food came out quick, but had to ask for water refill. Dishes were not cleared promptly or at all before desert, but server was standing around with not much to do. Was a birthday, which I put in reservation, but nothing happened. Less dips offered than before, food quality not as good for a couple of dishes, and decision to make donuts smaller means they are no longer soft in the middle and dry as they do not absorb honey at all. Definitely not the quality that I remember from past Cava Mezze. Maybe Olney is doing better but not sure.

Greek tapas. We enjoyed the beet salad, Zucchini fritters, and the scallops. Mini gyros not so much…they need more filling stuff.

The food was good. Service was initially slow but picked up. The pricing was okay except for the salad as the portion seemed small for the price.
