We come back here again and again and are never disappointed...

My husband and I love this place. We eat out quite a bit and always manage to have lunch here a couple of times a month. I've also had my book club meetings here on weeknights at 6:00 p.m. and they always let us stay as long as we want to discuss our book and have dinner. The wait staff... read more

This little restaurant is huge with service and taste. Everyone working there knows the family r cope items and can help you choose. The lemon chicken soup is delicious and the hummus has bold flavor. Everything tastes fresh. There is an outdoor seating area with a bar. inside seating is a little small and diners seem to eat in rather... More

The Greek dishes served at Cavos are authentic in presentation and preparation. This is a friendly, informal place, with the accent on food, rather than decor - just as it should be, in our view. If you know and appreciate authentic Greek cuisine, this is the place for you. The wait staff is knowledgeable and accommodating.

Being of Greek decent, when I think of Cavo's I think of Mousaka, Pastichio, Dolmades, Horiatiki salad. Cavo's serves traditional Greek dishes that actually bring me back to my childhood and the dishes my mom and now I make. I have also had their pizza and it is very good, but why settle for pizza when you can pretend you... More

There was a 20 minute wait to get a table. The waiter offered complimentary wine to those in line. All the entrees that passed us by were fantastic looking. The restaurant had energy in the crowd. Had a great greek salad followed up with a Sardine meal. That requires a certain taste, but I will go back to try the... More

The food was real Greek food. I felt like I was back in Greece. The atmosphere was great the room upstairs was great for the family party. The grilled lamb was very good. We love the out door terrace it is great and great food.

We dined at Cavos on a busy Friday night. Service was prompt and friendly. The horiatiki salad is the real deal, and very satisfying. We ordered Chicken Santorini, among other dishes, a particularly aromatic and delicious main course. For desert we ordered Galactoburiko and Baklava with figs. Delicious! We will return.

It has been a long time since my friend recommended this place to me. He goes quite often as he live only a few miles away. But we wanted to meet some friends for dinner, and this place was geographically right in the middle. A perfect opportunity to give the place a try. The restaurant itself is not very big... More

This is a fantastic restaurant with good food and service. The lemon chicken soup and spanakopita were wonderful. The waitress was friendly and attentive. We will definitely be back.

This was my first time at Cavos. I came in for a light meal. My teenage daughter was interested in having Saganaki appetizer (fried cheese, $8) and we split a large Greek salad ($10). I felt the salad was high priced and it was not exceptionally large. I was rather disappointed because of that. Otherwise, the standard veggies in the... More
