Quality food that clearly rates a return visit!

Had dinner in the upstairs Italian Cavey's and was delighted with our meals. The atmosphere is romantic and the service pleasant. Could have been a little warmer temp wise, The mushroom flatbread app was ample and the English Pea soup a real taste of spring. One of the main reasons we'll return... read more

Could have been a little warmer temp wise, The mushroom flatbread app was ample and the English Pea soup a real taste of spring. One of the main reasons we'll return is that everything we had was good!

My fiance and I dined at Cavey's to celebrate my birthday. This was our first time at the restaurant and it was hands down the best experience I've had, anywhere!! We had Jerry as our server and he was so helpful- from choosing the best meal to the perfect bottle of wine. We decided to go all out and do... More

In many ways an outstanding French restaurant featuring wait staff for every aspect of your dinner/evening. $275 for two in the last several years. An experience that you should have when you can afford to. Food was excellent, wine cellar outstanding.

Cavey's is one of the better restaurants in central CT. Yeah the portions are smaller than some, and the plates are on the expensive side, but this is good food done the right way. The ambiance is great inside of either the Italian or the French restaurants. Yes, the French restaurant has a much fancier feel. It's downstairs and is... More

It appeared most folks dressed up and went in large parties. We were squeezed into an area where we kept getting waiters running by and felt well under dressed in Khakis and a sweater. The food was great and the service was good but at the price it should be. I far prefer my fine dining not to have accompanying... More

Went for dinner Friday November 21. We found the upstairs Italian restaurant fairly empty, and our waiter ordinarily works downstairs in the French Quarter, so I conclude they were not busy either. I HOPE this means that people were not dining out 6 days before Thanksgiving, because our dinner was superlative in every way. Had perfect, just-baked bread, roasted cauliflower... More

I was lucky enough to visit this restaurant for a business dinner. Although it was on my husbands and my short list of local restaurants to try we just hadn't made it around to it yet. Lets just say my first time her WILL NOT be my last. Our dinner was up in the Italian portion of the restaurant. Parking... More
