Opened just a year ago, Cav already has a vivacious following despite being nestled between the well established Zuni Cafe and Espetus Brazilian Churrascaria. Sleek lines, juxtaposed color themes, and an angular layout define an über-modern style that caters to the nouveau riche and allows Cav to hold its own against these more traditional dining options. Black and white San Francisco photography adorns one wall while a creative cork board and free-for-all chalkboard face opposite. Bare incandescent bulbs drop from above next to stainless steel ceiling fans while up tempo dance music comes through the airwaves. This "Wine Bar & Kitchen" has substance too; as the name suggests, the menu features all things French from small production appellations to exquisite charcuterie. To top it all off, an eager and attentive staff will keep you in the lap of luxury guaranteeing a return trip to this trendy San Francisco wine bar.

Cav is a great addition to the nondiscript Hayes Valley / Market area long anchored by Zuni.

Cav offers up limited food selections, paired with an extensive wine list which features varietals and appelations from around the world. From appetizers, to cheese plates, to dessert, Cav invites you to "take a flight" and experience something new.
