Upon entering CAV Restaurant, I was immediately drawn to the beautiful and unusual décor! This place is completely enchanting, as it is filled with antiques and collected pieces. Some of which are for sale!

I had a deliciously prepared Manhattan, ceasar salad, and, a beautifully prepared chicken, with Rose'! Served by Deb, who, as I inquired, was a customer for fifteen years, before working in this establishment!?! I have been again, twice, had several delicious dishes, since, but, always the Manhattan, yes, expertly served by Joe, and, Cliff. Service was terrific and consistent! Food, atmosphere, also, consistent.

Great experiences! Buying a fabulous mirror from there!

Came here during restaurant week on a Friday night. Party of 5, we had reservations. Seated in a lovely raised area with a great view of the restaurant (at least those seated facing in that direction did!). There is no shortage of things to look at here. The waiter was superb....gave a background of the restaurant for those of us who hadn't been here before, gave us a great description of items on the menu. None of us ordered from the special restaurant week menu. We all loved our selections. Scallops...mussels, lobster, truffle ravioli, and an amazing arugula pesto salad. Dinner for 5, with drinks, and all of us had either an app or salad to start...came to $250. Very reasonable for the service, the food, and the ambiance.

We we're just wondering around for a brunch place and found CAV by accident. Eccentric but tasteful Decore with an antique flare.
The food...... simply fabulous doesn't cover it

The seared chicken with cheese and chive dumplings and fusion sauce blew my mind.
The lobster bisque had a nice caramel flavor that all lobsters want to grow up and become.

The crème brûlée, fruittia di Bosco and chocolate tort were unbelievably good.

You must come...ask for Jonathan, during the busy lunch rush he was patient, helpful and very knowledgeable about the menu items as well as how they were prepared, you will be in good hands!

I went with my family, including 2 kids. There is no kids menu but they shared a waffle and they loved it. The smoked salmon was so yummy! We enjoyed our time there and were glad to find this restaurant!

What an eccentric place. The food was absolutely delicious and the ambience unmatched. We started with calamari and goat cheese croquettes The entrees were perfectly prepared Filet with an amazing presentation. Highly recommend.
