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

We have been a fan of Cavey's for over 30 years! The food is consistently good with creations we have not seen elsewhere. I enjoyed a veal dish recently that I had never seen before. My wife enjoyed the salmon and our guest the ribeye. All prepared perfectly. Service has always been top of the line.

I was under impressed with the French cuisine. I had heard so much about it over the years, which could've been the problem, that it didn't live up to the hype. I didn't care much for the service either. I know it's highly rated by others but I can't see why.

I will preface this review by saying that Cavey's is not a cheap place to eat. That said, my husband and I have found ways to enjoy it without pushing it. They have a great happy hour with $5 glasses of wine and low cost apps, which are absolutely delicious. We went last Friday, sat at the bar, had some... More

My wife went to Cavey's for an anniversary dinner, and we got the Tasting menu (6 courses). The restaurant came recommended from our Italian friend who said it was the best Italian restaurant in Connecticut. We absolutely loved it. The portions were perfect sized, the food had so many good flavors and were so different from course to course. The... More

We go to Manchester CT once or twice a year to visit very close friends. Caveys is a very nice place where locals go for a fine dining experience. The food is Mediterranean and the service is very good. We always enjoy our dinners here with our local friends.

What a disappointment! Previously enjoyed lovely and delicious meals upstairs. This was our first time in French restaurant downstairs. We had a reservation, but it took 3 hours to complete our meal. We were so hungry waiting for the appetizers and our main course that we ate three baskets of bread (which fortunately was tasty.) It was sort of busy,... More
