Cava has established itself as a taste of luxury. An experience of Old world charm, and romance both in it's decor, and cuisine. It's upscale fine dining experience caters to those looking for an evening out, a special occasion, or a private events.The cuisine is authentic italian, using the finest ingredients. The menu alone exceeds any expectation. The daily additions to the menu, both appetizers and entrees are prepared daily by our executive chef based on the freshest market products. Cava expresses it's zest in season, both during the holidays, and on our cocktail list. There's a charm with each season, that should be brought to the table.The luxurious decor reflects the old world charm, with modern nuances.

The "Fireplace room" and it's cozy, warm candle lit atmosphere will soothe you and your guests after a long day at the office, or for a romantic evening. The "sunroom", filled with light, white linen, and paired with the right company, makes for an impressive room for a private dining, or the right place to impress that someone special.

"Always delightful"

We have been a few times and each time found a very enjoyable experience. The food has always been excellent. The atmosphere delightful -quiet enough so that we did not need to shout at each other. Cava is a wonderful place for entertaining just a couple or a party of 12 or more. Christmastime... read more

This evening my husband and I went to Cava Restaurant. We had asked while making the reservations to sit in the fireplace room and although they said they cannot reserve specific tables they were able to get us right where we wanted. Our server was attentive and very pleasant, and the food was spectacular! We loved their seasonal cocktail menu,... More

We had a party that consisted of thirty guests and the menu was great and the wine paring was excellent that our server suggested. The private room was very comfortable with the decor being tasteful and sophisticated. The food was well prepared and well presented.... More

It has everything. Great food, ambience, romantic and quiet. Some places are very noisy. Tastefully decorated and service impeccable. They do little things like bring a ceramic pot of coffee or if you have a second bottle of soda, they bring you another glass of ice. We had the chowder and a salad it was fantastic. Our dinners were Congolese... More

I went here after graduation for a family dinner, upon entering you're greeted by very friendly staff. It was very busy, with my reservation I was still sat right away. The dinner service was superb and the food was cooked to perfection, I couldn't eat any more. An excellent time was had all around.

I recently celebrated my Birthday at Cava with my family. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. I enjoyed the Antonio which is a pasta dish with plenty of lobster and sea scallops, my 11 year old son had the child's portion of chicken parmigiana. We were comfortable in a big booth with our group of five people.... More

My six coworkers and I had a business meeting at Cava the other night. The service was excellent and the dinner was awesome. The meals had great portions, and the appetizers were delicious. We will definitely be back here for our next meeting.

It was my boyfriend and I's first time at Cava and we fell in love. Service was excellent and we both loved our meals. After dinner, we took a walk around and noticed all of the unique details of the restaurant. Truly an awesome place for lunch or dinner!
