    Good great, but service was awful. Over an hour to get one course, which the waiter then proceeded to bring the wrong food, and then promptly delivered our correct food to another table. Not apologetic at all, and we were one of 3 parties in the restaurant. Avoid at all costs

    Amazing food. Service was sloooow. Waiter forgot to tell us they were out of a particular item that we ordered. After 45 min of waiting, we asked and he told us at that time they they no longer had it. Good place to try once, but probably not often.

    Food was really high quality and even the miso soup was a cut above. The service was Pleasant and fast and I really like the hidden aspect of the staircase to get in the upstairs dining room. I do think the water is overpriced.

    Kaviar is my and my husband’s absolute favorite restaurant. Food is phenomenal, service is amazing, we’re been here at least 5 times and have enjoyed every single meal. The bluefin toro is our all time favorite along with the lemon roll. Lychee mint martini is delicious! We can’t wait to be back here soon!

    Everything is awesome and this like like the 5th time coming but for whatever reason the last few times they have been out of a lot of random items. For example I always drink kikusui and it’s just the sake I like and don’t care for the price. But the last 3 times it hasn’t been available but on the menu. At least have an alternative that’s VERY similar that actually tastes similar. I would order the big bottle but 50% will go to waste. Then we wanted coffee but they were out then we wanted a desert and they were out. I love the place and the ambiance all I would suggest is print new menus daily with what you have

    What can I say about this hidden gem? The food surpass our expectations. So glad we gave this place a shot. The Dinela menu was amazing! You get to try a tasting of the signature dishes. My fiancé and I both loved the Toro Truffle and Truffle Seafood Pasta. Everything was so good! Definitely will be back next time to try the diff items on the menu.

    Went for Dine LA. Lots of food on the menu, all delicious and totally worth the value. Fan favorites for us were the yellowtail ceviche, taco crudo, and seafood truffle pasta. The Emerald City cocktail was light, refreshing, and watching the preparation was a fun little show. I’ve shared my experience with my friends and can’t wait to go back!

    The food was tasty, but servings were small and prices were high. My date and I ordered several sushi dishes and 2 cocktails and the bill was just under $200. We were both still hungry and sought out more food elsewhere. The ambiance was strange - it was very very dark, like a nightclub, so it was difficult to read the menu. We were also only given one menu. Service was excellent.

    Food was pricey, but excellent, as was the service. We paid close to $800 for 4 people but felt it was well worth it. We had a little bit of everything from the menu. Highlights: blue fin toro nigiri, lobster hand roll, Denver wagyu, and truffle caviar sashimi. Wish they had a better dessert menu. Great ambience and will definitely go back.

    There was no gas in the night of our visit, therefore no hot food was available. Quality of foods were so so, not as innovative as expected. Service was great, seating arrangement were not comfortable. Dinning room was too dark for a sushi restaurant. The elevator was small and filled with Lysol scent, not at all a good experience before reaching the dinning room

    They spilled on me twice and offered nothing but a napkin in return. Soy sauce on my WHITE shoes and I get a napkin. Idk if I’m judging expecting a lot because when I first came here the service was great but as time went on the experience has gone down hill. Also the rolls are a hit or miss. The shrimp one is giving very much Panda Express and the roll under tasted like tap water. The toro roll is always good tho so there’s a plus.

    It was our second time eating here. The order was taken by a "manager" then different waiters served our food. I ordered a hand role but got the cut role. I ordered with soy paper got it with seaweed. We wanted to order a second bottle of Saki and a couple of more orders but no one showed up at our table for about 20 minutes. I ordered the Lychee Martini. It tasted like sugar water. I think they overbooked the place and were short of staff. The place was packed!

    This was our 2nd time dining at Kaviar and it was a disappointment. The service was horrible and they were so busy that we were left flagging down waiter after waiter. Our drinks were forgotten about, twice. We had ordered a few dishes that were also somehow not noted down and they never ended up coming out. The server kept changing and it was hard to remember who was waiting on us. Food was great but when everything else is lacking, it’s a disappointment. Lastly, when they finally brought out our drinks, 30 minutes into dinner, the lychee martinis were in whiskey glasses. So ya, we will not be going back there.
