The Sushi and the Caviar – I found this restaurant to be one that truly values its patrons. Service and food is what any one would expect when spending that type of money. Obv caviar is top of the line but the rest of the menu is so diverse it gives you a chance to taste so manydifferent varietys. The tastes makes your mouth water for more. Waitstaff is great, very attentive. Wine list is not huge but def well selected.
I recommend that you try this hidden spot which will surely blowup very soon
One of the best experiences in Manhattan – Not only does Caviar Russe have (in my opinion) the most incredible quality and choice of caviar in the town (and I've been to Petrossian and Caviarteria many many times), the sushi is out of this world. Add to that the incredible and knowledgeable service, and you have a place that is definitely not to be missed - for locals and tourists alike. Can't say enough about this place.
I was in Heaven – My boyfriend and I went there to celebrate my birthday the other night and all I can say is that it was magnificent. From the spectacular caviar to the hospitable waitstaff, I felt like royalty and enjoyed every second of it. Considering we were the last patrons there and it was after the closing time, the waitstaff did not rush us at all and made us feel comfortable and relaxed. I highly recommend Caviar Russe to anyone who wants delicious top grade caviar and fantastic service.
first class service – I was looking for a special place to celebrate myhusband's birthday. When we first arrived the lady at the counter asked for our names and immediately wished him a happy birthday. We had reservations and we were seated right away. Another gentleman we came across wished him a happy birthday as well, and so did the waitress. A small detail but it was impressive none the less. It was romantic and you also have the option to eat in the elegant room. The service was first class and so was the food and wine. I am a big seafood fan and the sushi that I had was probably the best that I have ever tasted. I highly recommend this place for any special occasions.
Old-school luxury caviar house for the czar in you. – The Scene
Tucked away on the second floor of a small, nondescript Madison Avenue building, Caviar Russe feels more like a private club than a restaurant. The room is a shrine to turn-of-the-century Russian opulence, boasting heavy crystal chandeliers, plush green velvet walls and cozy banquettes.
The culinary offerings are just as decadent. As you'd expect at a joint owned by one of the most prominent caviar importers in the world, fish roe is the star of the show. But should you wish to diversify, you can indulge in the eclectic menu, rich with such delicacies as Maine oysters with beluga and sake and miniature lobster profiteroles stuffed with sweet tail meat. To wash it all down, choose from an impressive selection of global vodkas and vintage champagnes.
A midtown gem – I took my wife there for our one year engagement anniversary. I rented a helicopter to propose to her, so I was looking for something that would do justice a year later. We both love caviar. Caviar Russe was an excellent choice; the service - perfect, unobtrusive and efficient. The china was excellent and did justice to the caviar. The lobster for two was fresh and the appetizer Komodo oysters outstanding. If you take out the caviar, Caviar Russe was a good value, but the caviar stands alone. The view onto Madison was romantic and the ambience has that prerevolutionary decadence to it.
We will be back.
Super – My wife and I were in NYC celebrating our 30th anniversary. We went to this restaurant based on prior internet comments. We were not disappointed. The food was terrific and the service classy, attentive, without being overbearing. Somewhat pricey but what the heck. I recommend to anyone who wants to dress up and impress the lady.
Felt like a Princess – Went with mommy (the only person who could afford taking me here). We had champagne and caviar and felt like princesses! Great people watching as others do the same to you. Definitely a once a year treat that I look forward to around the holidays!
Refleshing Experience – I went there in late afternoon for some bite size food and refleshment with my date. The place was quiet and delightful. Service was good and food is wonderful.
I did not try the caviar but I tried their salmon and crab salad (they are all good)
It is definitely a good spot for snacks and chat.
