Sushi was fresh and tasty! Lots of different types of fish you don't get at other regular sushi restaurants. Wagyu was also delicious. Staff and service was great. Recommend this restaurant!

No outdoor seating even though I requested it on my reservation. All the tables were set outside but they would not seat us outside. The dining room was only one quarter full but they made us wait 10 minutes outside before seating us even though we had a reservation. After ordering an assortment of food and drink, we were told they could not bring us our salad because they ran out of the greens fir the salad. They could not serve us the lobster rolls we ordered because they ran out of lobster or the Japanese uni sushi. How do you run out of essentials during the early dinner hour? The waiter kept disappearing for what seemed like eternity multiple times. As we got to the end of the meal, the volume of the music went way up like night club level. It killed what little ambiance there was left. We could hardly hear ourselves. Kaviar used to be a nice place. We won’t be dining there again.

The Toro sushi is as delicious as I’ve ever had anywhere. The Lemon roll is also fantastic and the beef sukiyaki is very good. I don’t understand how this place isn’t getting praised all over the local restaurant press. Give them a try.

My parents and boyfriend went to celebrate my mother’s birthday and it was lovely at the end they surprised us with a song and desert. Everything was good except the cocktails didn’t come out until after the first appetizer. They said the bar was backed up. My mom ordered a roll that was so spicy it was inedible for her and she can handle spice! Lastly, I ordered the tofu dish and it was so boring, I could have made something have more flavor! I heard kaviar was super special but there are lots of other sushi restaurants to eat at.

The presentation, appearance and menu description of the food was given much more thought and effort than that of the flavoring and taste of the food itself. Tempura dough was excessively heavy, had only one shrimp with the rest vegetables.
Cocktails had very little alcoholic beverage content.
Service was attentive however.

Last day of Dine in LA. So glad we were able to get in! Service was rushed. But was worth it in the end as all the food choices on the Dine in LA menu complimented each other. Great Value. We have tried Kaviar before. Was pricey in our opinion. But after this experience we may try again. Their fish quality is exceptional!

Ambiance good. Food above average. Service below average. Overall experience didn’t meet our expectations. Prices excessive. Will not recommend to friends.

Order got screwed up and wasn’t anything like the server described. Waited over 30 mins on this order to find that she hadn’t placed the order. Than was pushy to get us to order more drinks to help cover the mistake. Could have empowered to offer us a drink or dessert on the house, but nothing.

Live in Pasadena and eat out often. This restaurant will not be on our “return” list. To pricey for a below average experience.

Food portion is small. Overpriced with the food quality they served. Sake was watery.
Nori used to wrap handroll was really chewy for the following reasons:
Warm rice, stale nori or rolls were premade.
Will not go back or recommend to anyone.

Well if you look for some place different from a traditional sushi bar, this is the place with vibe and trendy feel. I am a foodie, so food is more important. The quality is good, pricy for what you're getting. Place is dark, more romantic I guess. Artistry food presentation, even the cocktail. Service is good, servers often greet you with phrases like 'wonderful', 'absolutely', 'of course', like reading from scripts, but that should be considered as courtesy. We tried the Dina LA menu, comes with small portions of appetizers and omakaze sushi, the size of the fish is thin, but it comes with beverage that includes a glass of wine, soda or tea. again, not a lot for normal people tummy, but a good place to bring a date.

Unbeknownst to us, checkin was at the top of a staircase, despite the obviously placed host podium at the front door. When someone finally filled us in, we were last to check in behind others with the same or later reservations. The restaurant opened at 6 and we held a 6 o’clock reservation. This delay marred the entire experience, in that dishes were already gone by the time our order was taken. We were also last served behind the other diners.
The decor was upscale and sophisticated. However the music was loud and contained a weird mix of Motown and modern popular rap. Not the soundtrack for a relaxing upscale dining experience. Maybe consider some classic jazz… something more in keeping with the ambiance you’re trying to crest. Our waitstaff was mostly excellent (Shota). Others were a little confused, bringing out the prixfixe courses in the wrong order and continually neglecting to remove used dishes from our table. The bussing staff was stellar. The value of the meal was fine and the actual presentation was pure artistry. It’s a beautiful space to dine, but these issues need to be addressed before we return.
