I have been going here since it opened and I have never been disappointed. I have experienced some important occasions in this restaurant. I have always enjoyed the food. The menu changes but many of the best dishes stay on. In this past week I was part of a dinner for 8. We asked the restaurant to stage the dinner... More

You will find delicious food and positive experiences at this charming restaurant; off-street access adds to the appeal! The wait staff are very attentive with superior knowledge of wine pairing to complement the menu. This restaurant is BYO, so start on your wine but be sure to finish with one recommended by the wait staff. Anyone who can suggest an... More

This small restaurant features small plates. Keeping with that tradition, the menu changes frequently. The chef finds what is good at the time and makes dishes to fit that. This is a real find and highly recommended!

If you love the concept of "small plates," you will understand Cava - still one of the best dining experiences in Toronto. We came expecting to be shocked at the prices, and we were - under $200.00 for two, which we considered to be excellent value for the quality, quantity and variety that we enjoyed. We began with a glass... More

We dined at Cava, after hearing raving reviews about it, and evidently left underwhelmed. Although the food was very good, the atmosphere was cramped and it is in a funny location. The menu was Spanish tapas, and everything was delicious. We decided to go back, another night with a group of friends, (with reservations) but they told us that they... More

Alexandra, we are sorry that you found us overrated. We would love to know under what name the reservation was made and and on what night. i don't know what conclusions can be drawn at this point. More

Cava is a good choice for a tapas-style meal in Toronto. There is much to like in the food. Here are a few highlights from my experience... 1. The service was good, but came in fits and starts. One moment my party was graciously introduced to the wines and menu, then we waited for a while for follow up. The... More

We just got home from a lovely dinner at Cava, very tasty, a touch noisy, delightful staff but extremely expensive. We followed Joanne Kates advice from the North Toronto Post and 'Let Chris choose'. The food was amazing but for 3 people with 3 beers and 2 glasses of wine the bill was almost $300 with tax & tip. It... More

Thanks for posting your review on Trip Advisor. i have looked at your bill and it looks like you had a great menu. "Trust me" at Cava usually runs about $65. Yours was about $60 so you are about in the range of what most people spend for the full on experience. We are highly rated in various publications. Toronto... More

Do not listen to me and do not believe I word I write, but try it out for yourself: Cava is by now definitely my favorite restaurant in Toronto, I love the ambience, the service, the amazing variety of tastes on the menu and the wonderfully expert pairing of wines with the meals. But please - do not trust what... More

This smaller restaurant does not have frontage on Yonge Street but was an excellent "find". The variety of dishes and flavours would please any palate and we enjoyed all our dishes. My only comment would be that, for 4 adults, 3 dishes per person ended up being just a bit too much, (our dishes included beef, duck, lamb, scallops and... More

Reading some of the other reviews, I can definitely see both the good and bad points of what people have said about this restaurant. I personally thought that the ambiance was cozy, but it is noisy. Don't look for quiet or smooth. The crowd is a little bustling (especially given its location just north of Yonge & St. Clair) and... More
