    Of our party of 4 (2 birthdays), each of our brunch entrees were served one at a time, so we watched each other eat which was not the shared dining experience we expect. The manager was unhelpful and explained his restaurant was tapas style serving meaning we were supposed to eat each other’s brunch egg dishes? Gross and unsanitary in the COVID/flu climate. Do not recommend the Clarendon restaurant location.

    From appetizers to dessert, the meal was delicious. We had an appetizer sampler, then vegetables then moved to meat plates. The lamb was moist and flavorful. Braised beef was amazing. Shrimp and salmon outstanding. Doughnuts and an unbelievably creamy Nutella cheesecake. Service was attentive but not rush us. Go here for a date night or group dinner - you'll love it!

    The bathrooms had no soap. I informed the staff and did not see them do anything. It concerned me greatly (safety, covid, etc.) The food was delicious and the ambiance is beautiful.

    My husband were there for our anniversary. I made a reservation for inside, but when we checked in, we were asked if we wanted to dine outdoors. It was a beautiful evening and we said yes. We had a nice table in a corner of the courtyard and our server was extraordinary. I wish I could remember her name. She took great care of us, letting us take our time to mull over the menu and decide on our orders and she was just so friendly and attentive. At the end of the evening, she shared with us some of her favorite Bolivian restaurants. Oh, and the food was excellent. Lamb Meatballs, Falafel, scallop risotto, and cauliflower. All of it was terrific.

    Brunch was a delightful experience. Flavors of different dishes were delicious and good enough to share among 5 persons. Wish they wouuld bring back the unlimited brunch before Covid. For now three choices seem a little bit pricey. Otherwise, we had a sweet and helpful server. Keep up the good work.

    Each time I periodically go to this Cava location the service leaves us frustrated, there's always one or more items that takes forever to come out. In this case server brought wrong drink and two food items came so late we just boxed them to go. Unclear if the issue is with their kitchen staff, servers or a combination but after taking guests here sever times and having same issues, I won't be going here again.
