So after struggling to find a place to reserve for 10 for my bday... (litteralyl tried every where...nota bene....buca...enoteca sociale....sotto sotto... ) we finally got a reservation! Cava is willign to accomodate our group size so last mintue (its next friday) but im a little nervous becaus eof th emixed reviews. They were at the food truck thign at nuit blanche and we LOVED their paella and pumpkin dessert thingy. TorontoLife also gave em 3 1/2 stars which is pretty awesome however some people say they dont leave full....which is nto a good thing.

They will be doing a chef's menu for the table (55.00 per person) - has anyoen done this? their experience? were you full by the end? was the food exciting and different? Ive only done Tapas ONCE before..years ago at Embrujo and i thoguht it was one of the worst food experiences ever (up there with Sultans tent!)

Help!

    Don't compare the food you had at Embrujo with what you will have at Cava. They shouldn't even be in the same sentence :-)

    I haven't done the chef's table but when I go with the BF we tend to spend around $130 for food and drinks and we've never left hungry. I'm not a huge eater but the BF makes up for that for sure. I hope they give you the ceviche as part of your menu.

      Thanks Jennabean! Im really holding high hopes for this place as the group im goign with is also particular about food (quality and quantitiy). I love ceviche (its my national dish!)- the only kind ive ever had is peruvian though so itll be interestign to try something new.
