She sat us at a nice table for two. The waitress was very sweet, great personality and knowledgeable. We split the Mediterranean Calamari appetizer - awesome! Food came out in... More

Cava was a great experience. The atmosphere and ambiance was warm and welcoming and the dinner was tasty. Cannolis you can tell are made fresh and nice and creamy.

The only vegetarian entree is pasta with artichoke hearts, tomatoes, olives. Very tasty. Linguine vongole was also enjoyed if a bit salty. No side vegetables available. Good martinis and bread.

We enjoyed everything immensely. The food was magnificent and the restaurant was... More

I dined here for the first time on a hot, muggy evening. Not accustomed to dining in classy restaurants, I wore my capris and a simple cotton shirt. Arriving at the restaurant, I felt underdressed for such a fancy place, where others were clearly dressed up. However, my self-consciousness disappeared immediately with the friendly staff's sincere welcome. My test for... More

Came here after church on Sunday. I had heard so many good things about the place I wanted to try it. There was only one other patron in the restaurant. I was told because it was such a nice day everyone wanted to be outside. I ate in the bar which was fine. I was able to watch the news.... More

The menu alone exceeds any expectation. The daily additions to the menu, both appetizers and entrees are prepared daily by our executive chef based on the freshest market products. Cava expresses its zest in season, both during the holidays, and on our cocktail list. There's a charm with each season, that should be brought to the table.The luxurious decor reflects the old world charm, with modern nuances.

The "Fireplace room" and it's cozy, warm candle lit atmosphere will soothe you and your guests after a long day at the office, or for a romantic evening. The "sunroom", filled with light, white linen, and paired with the right company, makes for an impressive room for a private dining, or the right place to impress that someone special. The "sunroom" serves as a private banquet room for all occasions.When the sun sets, and the lights are low the "Main DIning Room" has a grand dining table for occasions with more intimate groups. Everyone can enjoy a cocktail,or glass of wine, at the granite top bar, surrounded by dark cherry wood. There is a more casual atmosphere in the back tavern, with high top tables for a "girls night out" or just a couple appetizers while watching "the game".In addition to the dining experience, the cuisine has upscale items with aged Angus certified steaks, fresh atlantic salmon, pasta dishes, lighter fare, and authentic flavors throughout.
