KAVA neo-taverna
Chic little spot for Greek food & wine
Greek · South End · $$
"Tucked away from the tourists" on a quiet corner in the trendy South End, this "hip" , "intimate" hangout, a "lively" taverna swathed in stone and reclaimed wood, serves up a "tapas-style" array of "incredibly delicious" Hellenic plates "meant to be shared" alongside a "large selection" of Greek wines; a "friendly" , "knowledgeable" staff and a "nice outdoor area" add to the reasons it's "quite popular."

Locals' favorite neighborhood spot. Great authentic Greek food. Their Moussaka is delicious. Grilled octopus is a must if you seafood. On Mondays they have live Greek music, but not every Monday (more of a pop-up deal). During the warmer Summer months you can dine outside on their patio. Professional and friendly staff try their best to accommodate your requests.

My fiance and I live in the South End where there are endless choices of amazing restaurants to dine. However, we always seem to end up at Kava at least once a week. The food is incredible, the ambiance makes you feel like you're in Mykonos, and the staff can't be beat. They are so incredibly welcoming and don't care if we're dressed to the nines or are strolling in after the gym. They always make us feel at home and the service is impeccable. Highly highly recommend.

Excellent food at small, local restaurant. Prepare to wait with the few tables, but the wait is worth it. Go early and put your name in and they will call you when your table is ready. We had the fried zucchini, lamb meatballs, grilled octopus for small bites and each was amazing and so flavorful. Then had the Sea Bass for main dish; while it still had it's head, they did a nice job splitting it open and removing most of the bones and the flavor was outstanding. Certainly worth trying and looking forward to going back and trying more dishes.
