I loved the DC restaurant and now I love the Rockville restaurant as well. Excellent food in portions made for sharing the dining experience. The place is a bit loud, which makes it fine for children too. My 11 month old granddaughter loved her food...More

Since they are serving small plates, you can try several dishes during the dinner, they all great! The place perfect either for a couple, or for a company.

Love going to Cava! The food is amazing, the wine list is diverse and the service is always great. Although it's loud, and the seats are close, it's an intimate dining experience! More fun in a group

Everyone loves that cheese they light on fire and extinguish with a lemon - so that's great!! :-) However, last weekend we noticed that the recommended 2-3 tapas per person means that, depending on your choice and appetite, you might or might not get a...More

I have never had anything I didn't like. The small plates are all worth a try, from salads, baked cheese, lamb sliders, and beets I can't wait to go back soon. It's a bit noisy because everyone is having a great time.

Quick, good and interesting food. You never make a mistake if you go to CAVA. Their concept is simple but immediate and the quality of the plates is remarkable. Good for friends and family - maybe not for very romantic occasions, as the space is...More

Cava is a small gem in Rockville - very non-assuming from the outside. Small number of tables, but the food and atmosphere is great. The food was wonderful - traditional Greek cuisine. Highly recommend sharing some of the vegetables and salads. The main dishes are...More

Your neighborhood Mediterranean hangout, dedicated to shared plates and culinary excellence. Find us in Rockville, DC, Clarendon, Baltimore, and Olney. Established in 2006. In the summer of 2006, long-time friends Ike Grigoropolous, Ted Xenohristos, and chef Dimitri Moshovitis came up with the idea for Cava Mezze over coffee. As three children of Greek immigrants, and life-long Rockville residents, they aimed to bring mezze-style dining of from their parents' home to their home. Despite opening their first Cava Mezze in a once desolate shopping center, the restaurant thrives as a neighborhood hangout. From hand-building tables, to smashing tiles, each founder and their family poured every ounce of their effort into making their first restaurant a success.
