Hidden Gem at the Airport

Great little tucked away gem of a restaurant in Wallkill/Ulster border. Located on the grounds of Wallkill private airport, they offer a varied menu of classical and Italian dishes with substantial portion sizes and wide selection of delicious appetizers.

Unfortunately the service was the worst ever. It was a very busy day (Father's Day), however when a decent establishment is truly service oriented, they communicate with the customer at least at some point to say - "hey just so you know we're running behind about an hour or so... Thanks for your patience." However at every level there was... More

The veal was so tender and full of flavor. The salad dressing blue cheese was also quite tasty. The view of the air planes taking off and landing was cool. The large windows in the restaurant aided in viewing the beautiful mountains.

Quietly tucked away, my sister introduced me to this hidden gem. The atmosphere is warm and inviting, delicious selections on an extensive but not overwhelming menu. They have a beautiful wrap around bar area on one side, romantic with rustic charm dining area across the hall. I love that you can have a rowdy crowd in the bar but if... More

Good food. Alittle high priced. We'd go again with our friends. Nice view. good steak. Good wine. That's about all.

This is a good restaurant. It is clean, attractive inside, and the food is good. It's the kind of place you go during the week when you don't feel like cooking, or, on a Saturday night, for a casual, inexpensive get together with friends.

Wonderful and inspired menu with great specials! Go early for quiet, upscale, romantic dining. Later in the evening is more appropriate for louder, more fun, music, apps, and drinks. My husband and I love Nu-Cavu as a special date-night destination :-)

We went there with another couple. We had reservations for 6:30. There was a very loud band playing in the bar. We could not hear each other. At 7:30 the band stopped but at 8:00 a second band started playing. Do not sit in the main dining room if you want to have a conservation. The food was average and... More

Cavu has been around for awhile now but more advertising, word of mouth & some better marketing has brought a crowd back to the place. It's deceiving as you walk into what looks like a large place then into a small hallway leading into a very decent size dining area reminiscent of a ski lodge with the high ceilings and... More
