I'd recommend it.

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 :-)

A bummer, the massive fireplace was not on.........the hostess said it throws off too much heat... I am a fireplace guy....oh well.....four of us........ very... More

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

We have been a couple of times. This is the best rural airport based restaurant that I have seen. We loved the place!!!

This is one of our favorite restaurants. The food is always delicious, no matter what you order. Friendly wait staff and service. In the warmer months they have outside seating. And you can watch the small planes take off and land.

We tried this place as a recommendation from a friend. We were tired of going to the mundane chains that just try to sell you things so you pay more. My husband and I went for drinks and dinner on a Wednesday for a date night. This is the our new favorite restaurant. The atmosphere was warm and inviting and... More

Went with some locals for a business lunch. Nice atmosphere. Nice idea (I have been a few rural airport-based restaurants and they always seem to be hopping with activity...a nice concept, but basically, it does not help average food become better). The bar tender was indifferent as I had a drink while waiting for my dining companions. She really did... More
