This restaurant experience was very disappointing. The service was very slow (we waited almost one hour just for Serrano ham to arrive), the quality of food they serve isn’t exceptional and the quantity is ridiculously small… In addition to this they are very pricy… As Europeans we know how Spanish food should look and taste and this one is just...

I find the food at Cava to be really good. The service is excellent. The staff is efficient, friendly and fun. I look forward to going back.

Four of us descended to this restaurant 3 weeks ago. We are fond of Spanish tapas and were looking forward to the meal. Unfortunately the food was not up to par.We ordered the Ceviche to start (bland) and the octopus salad which was similar to the ceviche. The Papas Fritas were frech fries with a small helping of the sauce.... More

Went here a few weeks ago with some friends. One of them had been here before. The food was full of flavour. The wine list is really good. Had kitchen issues so food was slow coming out. Manager did come by to say sorry for delay. It's a nice atmosphere. It is expensive but worth treating yourself. I would go... More

Spanish restaurants are very popular these days and Cava has been around a long time so they must be doing something right, so we have decided to give it a try and invited two other couples to join us. The reservation was for 8PM and the table was ready when we arrived. The menu is not very big but there... More

Good service, reasonably comfortable ambience. Been here a few times, but was a little taken aback at the cost per plate - it can be very expensive indeed. So, anticipate doing $75 a head on the food, and you won't be leaving feeling full. The actual dishes sometimes seemed a bit fussy, mostly were quite tasty. I just felt that... More

It was my mistake for thinking this was a traditional tapas resto, it simply is not. Took my bf for his birthday, and, unfortunately, most of the featured dishes contained elements he just doesn't like (eggplant, ceviche, octopus),so he did not find much on the menu to enjoy. That said, the service was fantastic, we found it to be quiet... More

One of the best places I visited in Toronto . Food is delicious and service is great . Get ready to spend $100.00 pp . to have nice meal with wine . Yes, it’s not cheap place and not for everyone but if you understand in food you will be happy .

I have now eaten twice at Cava and wish I could come back to Toronto soon to go there again. The tapas are fresh and wonderfully prepared, with great care. The second time I was there I asked the staff member to put me in the hands of the chef and it was a good decision. After asking what kinds... More

I went with my wife for her birthday/our anniversary dinner. We made the trip up from Waterloo, because the reviews were so good, and it looked amazing. We were not let down We ordered the tasting menu, and after asking us a couple of questions (was there anything on the menu you really wanted? Is there anything you don't want?... More
