"the food was fine-so pricey for what you got. I had the scallops and shrimp with risotto . ($29.00) The scallops were salty and the two shrimp were small. The waiter was eager to please and I feel the CAVE is trying but they need a little help."

"We thought the menu (and execution) at CAV were remarkable. It's a charming place, filled with antiques; the ceiling is ornamented with crystal chandeliers, the walls adorned with African art. My crab salad starter was beautifully balanced with a generous amount of fresh, high-quality crab; my filet mignon was perfectly prepared. The wine list and cocktail selection was fun and thoughtful; my wife loved her lychee martini, which could be cloying in lesser hands, and I thought my Chopin martini just right - properly cold, with just a whisper of vermouth. We had very friendly and thoughtful service from Kurt. We'd be happy to go back any time, and will certainly stop back the next time we are in Providence. We enjoyed our dinner so much we bought a gift certificate to give to our Rhode Island friends."

"I feel like the menu changed since I've been here and it was way more eclectic and lacked some of the great food it used to have. Also, our food came out cold and they tried to serve our appetizer after the main course. Thought he just forgot about it. Was more just odd."

"Have been here many times for both lunch and dinner. The menu is varied with something for everyone, in my opinion. I haven't been here for brunch only because I'm not in the city when that is served. Service is also terrific and I really like that they accept reservations"

"We had a wonderful time having dinner at CAV. The restaurant is filled with antiques such as chandeliers and beautiful old lamps, giving the place a cozy yet festive feel about it. Our waiter was very friendly and attentive. The wine list was great and we were able to find the perfect wine choices. The menu has a lot of options, especially for someone like me who can have a sensitive stomach. We started out with walnut encrusted brie and crackers which melted in our mouths. I had the seared salmon for my entree and my partner had the duck confit. Both were delicious. The portion sizes were just right and we both felt comfortably full but not stuffed. We were too full to have dessert but the options looked lovely and I'm sure that whatever we chose would have been great. Overall it was a great experience and we will definitely go back again when we are visiting next time."

"I love CAV. It's my favorite Providence restaurant. From the eclectic decor to every bit of food I've tried, it's always wonderful. I can't seem to ever leave there without having the crab cake, which is the best I've found, especially the sauce, the Sofia salad, scallops, chicken with pears, and each of the many dishes I've tried. I intend to go through them all. My only negative is the noise level. Occasionally, when it's full, it's overwhelming but still well worth it."

"This restaurant came recommended. Let me begin by saying the flavors in the food were outstanding! The presentation great. The turn off; the food (duck confit) arrived cold and then seemed to be re-heated in a microwave! Result... rubber. Not something I would expect at this price point. The service was excellent and the staff went out of their way to make things right!
Next time I am in Providence, I would like to try the restaurant again!"

"A great find with interesting African and Asian art and interesting antique mahogany bar. Free parking across the road.
Good selection of cocktails with flavorful appetizers. Dining experience was pleasant. Would come back again.

"A wonderful evening with very good food. Our waiter was attentive but not super interested. The chicken with pears, scallops and shrimp, and crab cakes were excellent. The lobster with peas and past was a little band."

"This is a great spot for dinner. Food portions are a nice size, so there is room for app and dessert. I love that because I hate to pass up dessert. Nice entree selection. Wonderful shabby chic decor. Very Good service. Nothing more to ask for."
