Awesome meal - will come back again!
Great service! Food was on point! Love how small and intimate the restaurant was! Highly recommend the restaurant if your a champagne fanatic plus Caviar!
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.
anniversary lunch- stellar presentation, great service, quality products
Fabulous! Five out of five
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.
We love coming to Caviar Russe for celebrations. The food is delicious and the service is impeccable.
A secluded comfy place to be and perfect hideaway yo indulge in the finest caviar
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.
A private and secluded jewel that gives way to an awesome experience in food and service.
A spectacular and memorable experience that will enrich the palate of the guest to an existential extent. The service is impeccable and the food is extraordinary. A fantastic place!
It is truly quality food quality everything. Price/Value is great.
Delicious food, fantastic service, had a beautiful lunch, thank-you!!
Excellent service and excellent variety of caviar. Will definitely come again.
Excellent all around! Was expensive but its cavier- if you enjoy that- should not be an issue.
highly recommend- Romantic!
Cozy atmosphere, professional service, fabulous caviar
Excellent food. Cozy atmosphere.
The caviar selection was great and they had several different options to try different caviars. The service was outstanding and the ambiance was perfect. I highly recommend and will definitely go back!
Excellent food and service but very pricy. It worth it!
Great restaurant. Truly gourmet but pricey and the menu is somewhat limited. Service, over the top.
Fantastic food and service. The waitstaff were very patient with all our questions and the food was incredible.
This restaurant remains a favorite of mine, consistently delicious menu and wonderful plating, service and attention to detail.
Quiet, intimate, elegant space to get your caviar fix and celebrate a special occasion!
1 Star Michelin, this is the place you go if you want great Caviar and want to splurge. Great food.
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.
Armando and the wait staff were incredible. Great food and beverage suggestions and impeccable service.
Exceptional service. Best caviar restaurant in NY
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!
Sky high prices, but worth every cent!
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.
Amazing as always! Great personal service and outstanding food!
Wonderful selection of caviars and premium vodkas. Sushi grade seafood. Thoughtful, inventive preparations. Knowledge service.
All I can say is “this is what a Michelin star restaurant should be”. Food is excellent, service is excellent. Not overly formal. Beautiful ambiance. Just outstanding all around.
My wife and I have been dining at Caviar Russe for over 10 years now. The food is always impeccable and the service is second to none.
Excellent service, and menu
An extraordinary experience. Caviar was imbued in the food. Service was impeccable.
