    It was an amazing intro into caviar for me. One of my husbands favorite luxuries I found out. The presentation was impeccable and delicious, the small bites - king crab, bluefin tuna belly were finger licken good and the champagne and vodka were flowing. The service was exemplary. It’s a little hard on the old wallet but life is short and it was worth every extravagant penny.

    Service was, as always, impeccable. Love everyone. The caviar was amazing. The bread and pastry were outstanding. However, some of our dishes in the tasting menu were not excellent. The egg was swimming in the Parmesan foam. Too much. The hamachi dish was a bit dry. And we didn’t touch the Dover sole and nobody asked why. That’s what brought the overall rating down. Also, the chocolate dessert: ice cream: incredible. The chocolate itself: not so much.

    Exquisite! Had a fantastic time during happy hour on a Friday night. The music and ambiance were just right, cozy, no loud talkers, and cool house music. Food was exceptional! Their happy hour deal is such a hidden gem. Will definitely come back and put Caviar Russe on my regular restaurant rotation.

    Hands down one of the best meals I have had in New York and this is coming from a native New Yorker. The staff was very attentive and knowledgeable about the caviars and the wine list was expertly curated. I will be dining here again, and often.

    I had originally booked the lounge, but was told the lounge became booked and that they needed to move us to the dining room upstairs where we have eaten for years. It’s terrific, but wanted my wife to try the lounge. I am fine with it, but was disappointed that I found out only two days before our dinner. Once again, however, the food and service were exceptional. We really enjoyed it!

    At the top of the list in New York! The waiter moved us to the corner table! Caviar was great, fresh, cold, like it should be. The food is great and unique! We'll go back again and again. Great view of Madison Ave. on the second floor corner table.

    Was bit too casual (i.e., noisy and frenetic). Music was not only loud, but also not an elegant playlist for a brunch-type atmosphere of such an elegant parent restaurant. Really expected the Lounge environment to be in keeping with the "upstairs", but even at a 12:30 luncheon, it had "nightclub" vibes. It was a good Happy Hour atmosphere - except it was nowhere near happy hour times. The food was only average, nothing special. After over $500 for two persons, I kinda expected "more". Very inelegant overall.

    Yes, Caviar is expensive, but you know that going in and if you are going to indulge in this decadent treat Caviar Russe is the place to do it. The incredibly educated, professional staff will guide you from your champagne choice to your caviar selection should you need it. If not just enjoy the magnificent beauty of the dining room and let all your senses soak in this special experience.

    Insanely overpriced for what it offers. The seafood "tower" (which was a small bowl, in reality) cost $175 for 5 pieces of shrimp, some oysters, and like two ounces of sashimi. If you're going out and planning on spending about $400 to dinner, just go to Atera, Aska, Aquavit, or really any of the other two michelin star restaurants in the city. I would recommend them all over Caviar Russe due to value.

    We have gone once a year for my wife's birthday over the last 7-8 years, save COVID. 5 stars on everything except, well, value. It's caviar. Not cheap, but we weren't going for cheap. I cannot imagine a better place in Manhattan.

    Once into the restaurant, you enter a different world. It is the elegance of a more civilized bygone era. The ambiance is beautiful and restful, and once you put yourself into the knowledgeable hands of the staff, everything becomes perfect. The caviar and champagne are memorable. This restaurant defines perfection.

    The food, service and presentation were all outstanding. Borrowing heavily from Japanese cuisine in ingredients and syle, mixed with European and nouvelle American cooking techniques, every course stood out. The staff was extremely attentive to our needs. Expensive, but in this case, the price was commensurate with our high expectations. Would definitely recommend for those who want a high-end culinary experience.
