Cava Bistro is listed as a "wine bar/bistro". We dined there last week....after being seated we ordered a bottle of wine off the "reserve" wine list. After a few minutes we were told they did not have that bottle of wine......that's all....no suggestions on another bottle. So we asked if they had any California Napa Cab, no - not a... More

This is THE best lunch restaurant in downtown Houston! I've eaten here several times over the last 3 years and I have yet to order a dish that I didn't find absolutely delicious.

I can't wait to go back! My husband and I stumbled onto this wonderful little Bistro in the downtown area last summer. When you walk in you immediately feel as if you are in a wine cellar- very cosy and romantic. The food was awesome! Great steak- pollenta. Awesome wine selection. Great experience. I think we spent $100.00 for wine,... More
