Had lunch at Cava Mezze in Clarendon. On the whole it was a very good experience, and I encourage you to go. Ordered the falafel small plate and the beet salad (with goat cheese and argula), the baklava and pistachio icecream and coffee. Restaurant gives a full basket of pita bread and a variety of sides - olive oil (not... More

So my friends and I were really excited to try this place out for lunch. 30 dollars all you can eat with penny mimosas....how could it be bad? And it wasn't bad it just wasn't great. Its a smaller restaurant but its has a very good atmosphere inside. Now unfortunately I cant say much more good things about it. Problems.... More

The first thing that struck me when I walked in the door was how dark it is inside, if you want a well lit environment then I would suggest somewhere else! If you are ok with this, go on inside because you won't be disappointed by the food. Go ahead and order 2-3 things on the menu since the plates... More

Went with family, Monday night treat. We really had never done tapas for dinner before, and we really enjoyed the sharing, variety, and options. Attentive staff, we had some very good beer selections, as well as an excellent report from the ladies of the White wine Sangria. Left us wanting to find some tapas options at home. For a weeknight,... More

We (mother, daughter, and granddaughter (22) arrived at 7pm Friday evening and were seated within 15 minutes. We were seated outside on the back patio area - lovely! We requested outside because the interior was extremely loud and dark. The hostess did let us know that if we were seated outside and it started to rain they could not guarantee... More

We had the flaming cheese that is lighted on fire at the table, followed by brussell sprouts, mini gyro and crab cakes. Everything we ordered was excellent. I definitely will go back and take guests. The only downside is the interior is loud and when the place is busy it is hard to converse at your table.

Between 3 of us, we tried 6 dishes. Each dish has three items so it's perfect for sharing in a group of that size. Not sure what you'd do if there were ore of you. Get more maybe? We tried the grape leaves, mac & cheese (not what you'd think), chicken lollipops, spanakopita, spicy lamb meatballs, and opa opa shrimp... More

Went to Cava Mezze for brunch last weekend with some friends, and it was the first time I had been there since they started their all-you-can-eat brunch. We were all very pleased with our experience. The brunch deal is all-you-can-eat small plates from the menu and one penny drinks (mimosas, bloody marys, sangria) for $30. The only catch is that... More

It was an interesting visit where you order plates to be shared. Portions were small so the need to order an abundance of them is necessary, like 2 or 3. They brought the food as it was prepared so you got the order over a 30 minute period. So pace yourself so that you can try it all. A little... More
