“Small, but great atmosphere”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 24, 2013

We dropped by this place right after work minutes before it suddenly became jam packed with people. We ordered a few appetizers, tapas, and sliders. I washed it all down with a few bottles of Mythos and my so had a couple of their signature cocktails.
The atmosphere is great, awesome bar scene, but beware that space is severely limited. The food is pretty good, but it's the first time I saw greek spanokopita deep fried in oil. A big no-no! Otherwise, we definitely enjoyed it

“Great as always”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed August 1, 2013

Always a solid place. Good food. Same menu though so can get a bit tired if you go more than once in a while.

“Excellent restaurant to eat at”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed July 4, 2013

I have eaten at Cava at least 8 times while in the Rockville area on business. It is a tapas restaurant that is so consistently good it is amazing. The food is excellent and the service is amazing. You cannot go wrong by dining at Cava. I highly recommend this restaurant. You can't go wrong.

“LOVE this place!!!!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed June 27, 2013

This is my most favorite restaurant!! The food is AMAZING!!!! I also love the ambiance, although it can get a little noisy and they don't always have the most humble and friendly hostesses. The rest of the staff is wonderful, outgoing and knowledgeable. It's impossible to pick favorites because everything is truly fantastic, but I highly recommend the Spicy Lamb Sliders! They don't take traditional reservations, so make sure you get on Open Table, or walk in avoiding the dinner rush hours.

“Great, interesting food and service, but decibels are thru the roof!”
2 of 5 stars Reviewed June 16, 2013

This has been the standard meeting place for the reunion of a few friends. We love the food but I always have a raspy irritated throat the next day from shouting to be heard. So we are moving our reunion destination. Too bad; we really love the food.
