My brother just had his wedding here and I was impressed with everything! The rehearsal brunch was delicious and the service was unmatched. There was a genuine interest in our satisfaction from management as well as from the servers. The wedding atmosphere was amazing, everyone was commenting on how beautiful and unlike anything they'd seen the place looked. The food... More

What a hidden gem. Providence is famous for them. The CAV is tucked away in the Jewelry District. I visited with a friend. We had appetizers and drinks. The mussels looked great and the sauce must have been darn as I could tell from all the bread dipping (always a good sign). The crab cake was large and actually quite... More

Everything from the unique décor (love the crystal chandeliers!!) to the cozy feel of the bar, warm inviting booth (cushioning couch... More

We met a friend for dinner. Food was fantastic! I love crab cakes and have had them everywhere along the east coast from Maine to Florida and the crab cake at CAV was the best I have ever had!!! Love the atmosphere and great service.

The staff at the CAV was top-notched! The food was delicious. Free parking! Everyone enjoyed their brunch choices. It's truly a hidden treasure,we were looking for a quaint style not a chain restaurant, and was pleasantly surprised.

I worked in the area of CAV many years ago and used to occasionally eat lunch here, and always had an excellent meal. The food was delicious and relatively fancy, and the venue was curious and difficult to explain; very filled with knick-knacks (and I've been told that you can purchase many of the items on display, but I never...
