The worst service ever!
We had a rude and obnoxious waiter, which was completely unqualified to work in a Taco street-cart, let alone at a Michelin Star restaurant. After giving us a check, he came to the table 3 times in 15 minutes. When I asked him what is the rush he said: "I have a reservation for this table in 15 minutes", while it was 10 PM and the restaurant was completely empty the entire time we were dining there.

景気が悪くかなり食材が保存が利くように塩を多く使ってます。
その為付け合わせがポレンタのペーストや薄めのスープ仕立てなど苦肉の索に走ってます!

So few places left in Manhattan for a true caviar splurge. It was just fabulous, and just the treat I needed after several arduous weeks.

We had 3 courses at lunch. The food was very very average, some of them too salty. After the 2nd course, we had to wait for 15 minutes to get the next course. We were the ONLY one at the restaurant at that time, and after 10 minutes of waiting, I literally turned my body completely to either get a server or see where my food is at. They saw me, but knew that the food was late and did not even bother to come and check. After 15 minutes, I stood up and walked over to them, and before I said any word, they said "The food is coming!" I told them it has been 15 minutes, and nobody bothered to give any explanation or aplogize for the long wait. Given that we were the only one, and that it was during lunch (I had to go back to work afterwards), it is very ridiculous that the food was late and nobody out of the 3-4 servers were bothered to check back at us within that 15 minutes. I have been to more than half of the Michellin star places in NYC, and this was by far the worst experience.

Lively experience with a hidden gem of a restaurant (seriously, a bit hard to see from the street). Food was good though I believe there could be better values out there for high end cuisine.

Caviar Russe is among a very select group of restaurants in terms of both menu and price.

If you’re not a lover of fine caviar and not well to do, read no further.

If you would die for caviar and are flush with disposable income, CR is the perfect place for you.

A small jewel like setting in the heart of New York City , we enjoyed some of the most elegant, creative, fantastic and delicious food anywhere!
Service was softly professional and attentive, everything was PERFECTION!
We cannot wait to go back, and I can remember every bite of every dish we enjoyed there.
For my money, one of the best food values of a special dining experience anywhere.
A must in New York.

You would never guess you are entering a Michelin starred caviar & champagne experience from the entrance & elevator up (grungy). What a pleasant surprise. The server gave us very good advice on what caviar selection to order. We splurged on the champagne. We also both had the halibut which was cooked perfectly. We have almost stopped ordering it out because it is usually overdone.

Everything was excellent and the caviar was presented and paired wonderfully. The staff could not have been better and I would highly recommend the restaurant for Caviar and non-caviar lovers equally. The fish dishes were excellent and the deserts were really over-the-top!

I would HIGHLY recommend Caviar Russe to anyone looking for an afternoon of remarkable food, attentive staff, and elegant surroundings. The prix fixe menu has lots of options, and my boyfriend and I both shared our plates, focusing on savory choices since they let you choose any three from those listed on the prix fixe menu. Before our first course even arrived, I was won over by the delicious butter selection, particularly the Japanese miso butter, which hit the perfect combination between sweet and salty.

Our ensuing plates only compounded our satisfaction. We particularly enjoyed the halibut, which may be the best I've ever tasted. Other favorites were the smoked sturgeon (what an exciting mix of flavors!), the alaskan prawn in risotto (who can say no to a well done risotto?), and the sepia (for the sheer delight of a good buttery French sauce). We also sprang for the smoked salmon as an extra course.

For any New Yorker, who thinks they have eaten the best smoked salmon, I would challenge them to try the plate at Caviar Russe. It was pure pleasure. The blinis were light, the creme fraiche was decadent, and the salmon itself was worth a pilgrimage.

For dessert, we tried the chocolate ladyfinger. Although I'm not usually a chocolate fan, I was pleased to find that the flavors were well balanced between the chocolate, ladyfingers, and vanilla ice cream, I plan to order it again. They also served fresh madeleines with our coffee, which was a pleasant surprise.

I also want to take a moment to commend our extraordinary service and overall atmosphere. The Caviar Russe staff was respectful, yet efficient. Some places end up feeling rushed between the courses, but at Caviar Russe we were truly allowed to enjoy our lunch unencumbered. They were always helpful, yet unobtrusive, and never brusk. The noise was well maintained, and we could easily hear each other talk, which overall, made it a lovely afternoon I look forward to repeating.
