    Ambience in music is amazing. Consistency in delivering a great service is impeccable. Staff goes above and beyond always. Restaurant Owner’s or management’s personal touch on staff selection and the chef does not go unnoticed.

    We informed the restaurant that we were there for my wife’s birthday so I would have preferred a booth and there were plenty available. I didn’t want to be that guy or cause my wife any anxiety so I accepted the table they sat us at. Beyond that little point of frustration, everything was remarkable.

    This was our first time dining here and WOW. The food was absolutely delicious, one of the better sushi spots in Pasadena. If you are ready for a flavor blast and decadent assortment this is the spot for you. Our waitress was great however service was a little too slow for us. However each of our six dishes was worth the wait. We plan to make this a regular spot!

    Kaviar is a beautiful space, serving beautiful food. The menu is extensive, the selection of sushi and sashimi is extensive, and the presentation is exquisite. Service is attentive and friendly. I look forward to going back for dinner. My one wish is that they had a specific lunch menu.

    The food was terrible, all the sushi pieces were tasteless, the restaurant was really hot, we complained multiple times to our waiter about lowering the A/C but nothing was done. The food was definitely over priced, not worth the price. I would highly NOT recommend this restaurant to any sushi eaters.

    The waiter was friendly but the food quality is not there. The sushi rice was falling in pieces when we pick up the sushi with chopsticks. The rice was wrong type for sushi and hard to chew. Not professional cook ~

    Expensive and portions tiny AF! Must be a food shortage already. Spent $400 for two with no alcohol, and had to get IN&Out on the way home! Service was great, ambiance nice. But those portions! And some of the sashimi was chewy! Just an honest review!

    I'm torn on how to review this place. The food was good. The drinks were good. The service and ambiance were good. But the price point didn't seem to justify the overall experience. We ordered an the crispy rice appetizer, the yellowtail ceviche, the Denver wagyu, the amberjack bluefin tuna roll and I had to finish my meal with a blue crab hand roll (just because that's my absolute favorite at any sushi spot). We had two specialty cocktails to top that, and our bill was about $250. Our service was ok. I asked what the sauce was that came with the wagyu and she just said it was a butter sauce. For $58 I hope it wasn't just butter, but regardless it was ok. Again, the quality was good. The taste was flavorful. The cocktails were ok. I just don't know why the price point was that high. Nothing "WOW'd" me. I don't think we will be back. We had a good time. We left satisfied. But for $250 I would expect more from the service department or the flavor profile department. I really don't mind spending money on a top notch experience ... but unfortunately, this wasn't it for us.

    We went here for my housemate's birthday dinner. The service was pretty good, our waiter was nice and gave us some recommendations which was helpful and always appreciated! Food was good too but definitely on the pricey side so be prepared to drop a decent amount of money lol. We ordered crispy rice, cream mussels, tempura, gyoza, 3-4 types of sushi, drinks, & a couple of rolls. Total before tip for 4 of us was about $540. The quality of the fish was fresh and presentation was good but all food was really just OK - nothing really special in terms of flavor or being super memorable. I personally feel like you could get a lot of the same items at another nice sushi restaurant for a fraction of the price. Overall it was a good experience and the ambiance was nice for a fancier dinner. Reservations were easy to make and we waited maybe less than 10 min for our table once we arrived.
