Love Cava!

Delicious Greek food, lovely outdoor patio, pleasant service, and fair prices for Arlington. What else could one as for?

Outstanding Middle East / Greek food! Had 7 people for dinner and loved the food. Flaming cheese is a must, as are the meatballs! Very good service topped off by the GM stopping by to see how we were enjoying the evening. A must in Arlington!

The food and drinks are fabulous!! This is a favorite for my friends and I and we have been known to hold down spots at the bar for hours! We always get great service and the food is spot on! Gal is a great bar tender and will take care of you. Must try the Hemingway - it is so... More

This is a rather new addition to the still growing number of new restaurants in the popular Clarendon area of Arlington. We stopped in early Sunday evening & had no trouble getting a table. The menu, while heavily based on well-known Greek cuisine, was jazzed up by mixing eclectic ingredients or cooking methods to some familiar "oldie but-goodies" like gyros,... More

Met a friend here for drinks after work one day and had a fabulous time. Ordering at the bar gets you a house red or white wine for $5 a glass - which is incredibly reasonable for D.C. We ordered the tzaziki appetizer and it came with a huge basket of pita bread that was warm and delicious. Warm atmosphere... More

We had a cheese dish, melted & fabulous, from the app menu. The drinks were excellent, wine selection is above average, beers are good. But WOW is this place LOUD. You will have to yell to have a conversation if you are here during peak hours. Stone & metal surfaces just reverb the noise around & around. Painful design.

Very good Greek and Mediterranean food in small portions. I usually go there with two friends and it's perfect to try a small bites of several items. The mini gyros are really good and I've been to Greece, they are authentic besides the size. Always happy with the food and service!

This place had a very cool atmosphere, it was dark and cozy and quiet, but with a good energy. Service was great and the food was just fantastic. I recommend starting with the Saganaki. It's "fried cheese" on a whole other level. They set fire to it at the table! Three girls shared the Cava Grill which included 2 lamb... More

My friend and I went for happy hour. It was great. The fried cheese was off the chain and the Mojitos were good for the price. Go early - Gul is a great bartender!!

Had a drink and dessert here on a Friday night. Friendly, attentive, hard-working staff. Great "cave" atmosphere.
