Nice people great fresh food and wonderful wine cellar...what more could one want? Don't miss their great fish, and freshly baked Italian bread, and homemade gelato and sorbet.

Although I'm still not used to paying big bucks for tiny plates of food, we do keep going back (usually to the less expensive upstairs restaurant, although we've celebrated a few times at the more trendy...read that as very pricey...French restaurant downstairs). The food and service has always been excellent.

We brought out-of-town guests to Cavey's for dinner to celebrate a family event. As expected, the food was very good. Unexpectedly, the service was poor. There was a very substantial delay in the delivery of our food, due to an apparent miscommunication between our server and the kitchen. We received repeated apologies from the server and from the manager. However,... More

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 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.
