We use only grass fed and pasture raised meats, local and wild seafood and mainly organic produce. All of our food is gluten free, wheat free, soy free, and, mostly dairy free, with the exception of ghee and grass fed butter used in certain dishes and our Next Level coffee.
Cavé is one of a handful of Jersey Shore restaurants that has qualified as a Surfrider Foundation Jersey Shore Ocean Friendly Restaurant.
I would recommend to a friend, with a caveat; the smell and decore say cheap diner, and you will need a broad pallet to accept the limited menu choices & no substitutions. My wife has a sensitive stomach, and when she asked to substitute a vegetable, she was told "no, he won't do that." It does say in the menu to " try not to ask.... ", but I guess that means you have to fight if you need to ask. The server was friendly and knowledgeable, and the food was very well prepared. Although my wife's steak had a little gristle in it, the coffee rub gave it a delicious flavor. The waitress could have come back to check on us once or twice, but at least she was friendly and could tell us some info about menu items. The price may have been a little high for my wife's cut of meat & one of her vegetables was only 2 carrots. My salmon was a good portion, cooked perfectly, over a delicious broccoli & lemon puree, with pea shoots. Pea shoots don't add much substance, and don't enhance the flavor profile of anything. We went on a birthday recommendation for the steak, but afterwards, we felt we should have stuck with our first choice. Has potential, might get better, locals should keep checking on it.
Love this place! 100% Gluten free and paleo. But, best of all, the food is fantastic.
I've been talking about this place non-stop since I ate here! I'm very picky about the types of foods I eat and where they're sourced, which makes eating out sometimes a challenge. But I was totally at ease with Cavé Bistro's menu options. And the taste? AMAZING! I cannot wait to go back again.
Everything about this place is amazing. Food, service, ambience. It’s a must to try
Unbelievable food and service
we visit often, every 5 to 6 weeks throughout the year...everything we have ever had (salads, entrees, and desserts) has been spot-on in all respects
Excellent food and service
Great restaurant! Food was delicious. Just be prepared it is on the warmer side inside!
NY style food, small NJ Bistro prices. Love this place.
Delicious meal, great service, reasonable price. Will 100% be back.. and soon.
Great meal once again. Love those colorful sand pail wine buckets. How clever. Cannot wait to return.
Delicious meal. Prompt service. Returning next weekend.
My favorite restaurant. Food is fantastic. Food is 100% gluten free and paleo and for a change I can safely eat everything on the menu. Well worth going out of your way to eat here. So good that I’ll drive 90 min to eat here.
Love the food at Cave! They use the freshest ingredients and its beyond your expectations! 10 stars!
It was wonderful. The food was amazing and delicious. Highly recommend.
Great place food is, amazing atmosphere is amazing, you can’t ask for a simple cozy nice place with really good food.
Many delicious menu options. The server had great recommendations when I shared that I was doing a Whole30 and wanted to make sure I avoided any meals with added sweetener or dairy. I was there 6:15 on a Thursday evening, it was a little over 1/3 full. Everyone seemed relaxed and enjoying the experience.
Excellent fresh organic food with excellent service to boot! Somehow this gem of a place previously flew under our radar. Glad we finally discovered it. The salads were fresh and flavorful and our entrees sizable portions. Will be back again soon!
Everything we ordered was terrific. Kelli our waitress was excellent. Can’t believe we hadn’t read or heard about this bistro in the five years it’s been in business. Limited menu but unique wonderful dishes. BYOB! It’s minimalism can definitely use a spruce up
Paleo or not you will be surprised at the savory food that is offered. You will be satisfied after finishing your meal and you will walk away looking forward to your next visit.
Amazing food served by awesome people who care a lot about food.
The food was amazing. The hostess was rude but we thoroughly enjoyed the overall experience. We will be back.
Food was delicious. Portions good. Overall a nice experience. We’ll be back for sure.
We had been to Cave’ once for breakfast, one of my guests (I am an innkeeper of a B&B) told me this was their favorite restaurant for dinner in our area. So I felt I had to try. The menu is fantastic, service was pleasant. The food was excellent and love that I can add another byob to the rotation. Also, feel confident recommending to other guests of mine. Only downside, the lighting is bad. The bald bulbs in the metal cages hanging from the ceiling are nice task lighting, but kill the mood when fine dining.
Cave served excellent food of high quality and flavor even the vegetarian curry dish. I appreciate the creativity and work involved in making the complex tastes to be so rich and flavorful. This is a restaurant not to be missed.
The food is absolutely amazing and service is second to none. The staff is super friendly and accommodating regardless of how busy it is. The noise level can get a bit high because of the "openness" of restaurant. Other than that, however, it's a great place for a healthy and delicious meal.
It was incredible. I highly recommend!
Cavé was a cute little restaurant with friendly service and seriously delicious food. So nice to have a restaurant around with food options that fit my lifestyle. Already told my friends and can’t wait to go back!
Valentine prefix menu - food was great price alittle high but definitely a great night!!
Our experience was wonderful from start to finish. The service was exceptional and this was on a crowded Valentines Day! The food was excellent, both my wife and I loved all of our dishes. It is a local place for us but it is a great place to dine for anyone. They also have a take out menu that is just as great, try Cave!
Food is good if a bit overpriced. Biggest complaint is chef/owners refusing to make any substitutions - to sides not main dishes
Excellent food. You must travel from wherever you are and try this place out...
The food is always delicious and we feel great knowing everything on our plates is good for us! The servers are friendly and always accommodating.Cave is our favorite place to eat!
Incredible food. I’m a paleo/keto guy so this was the best I’ve had. For those who aren’t, you wouldn’t know it. Best of the best
Wonderful creative but comforting menu. Food is clearly made with love. Talked with the chef twice. Attentive but not overbearing service.
