    Over the top

    The best date restaurant in NYC. Food impeccable. Dover sole perfectly presented and a caviar menu second to none. Romantic and feeling of seclusion in mid-town.

    Top Restaurant in NYC

    I went on a business lunch and had the best impression ever. Great food (dover sole was outstanding + sushis as well); great wine, excellent service, sophisticated and chic. Perfect ambiance for talking and well worth your money.

    Second Floor Magic

    We stopped for pretheatre cocktails and caviar and were totally impressed. Although it was very quiet, only three or four tables occupied, everyone was having a good time and seemed to be enjoying the food. The caviar tasting plate was excellent. Pricey, but what good caviar is not. The domestic sturgeon caviar is a bargain and has come a long way in quality. The "Jewel of Russia" vodka was superb and when I accidentally tipped my glass they were right there with a gratis refill. The tomatoe bisque was special. We will definitely go back. Next time for dinner.

    Where is everyone?

    I had a superb dinner yesterday at Caviar Russe, and was surprised and disappointed to see so few people in the restaurant. Probably the fact that it is on the seconed floor with little street visibility does not help. My friend and I are both enthusiastic about food, and also quite critical. We were both very impressed. I had been to Caviar Russe before, but had not sampled their sushi. My friend and I shared a roll in addition to our appetizers, and will definitely be back for the sushi. It was superb, and in addition to the quality, it was correctly sized. I continue to be annoyed by gross American size sushi, regardless of the quality, but this was perfect in every way. I hope that others discover this terrific restaurant before it disappears like so many others have.

    Enjoyable introduction to caviar

    I visited Caviar Russe on a night when I was only 1 of 2 visitors. Because it was my first time having caviar, I opted for the "Introduction" ($135 sampling of 6 different caviars, complete with blintzes, toast, cream, chives). It was a a great sampling of many types (I preferred the more complex Osetra to the Beluga). I highly recommend it. As for the main course, I had the sesame crusted tuna cooked rare. It came with a mint spring roll and portabella mushrooms with a light drizzle of pesto sauce ($22). It was an all around good meal.

    A hidden gem

    My aunt loves caviar so she made reservations here. I thought we'd be eating a cold caviar sushi dinner (which i dont mind) until I saw the HUGE selection they offered from the sushi bar and the kitchen. The entrees all looked so delicious. We had caviar, warm apps, entrees, and finally desserts. Everything was very good, I could tell that the kitchen staff took great care in everything that went out, and that is the main reason why we go out right? The atmosphere is also very unique, its small and private with 10 large tables (great semi circle booths), the room makes you feel privileged to be there, as if VIPs go there and no one else knows about it. The service was good but not phenomenal, the server forgot my mother's 2nd blueberry cosmo, but then the captain comped our desserts for free because of that. On top of everything, the drink menu was very interesting..the drinks were crisp, clean, and delicious. The entrance has a doorbell which is cool, the whole experience from entering to leaving was very special although its just "any other" expensive restaurant in NYC. I would definitely take out of towners there to impress them of what NYC has to offer. The whole night was surprising and enjoyable.

    Jewel Box

    Tucked away on the 2nd floor is a little known treasure of a restaurant...More French than Russian with sparkling sushi and fine caviar being the stars of the show...Starters was a nice mesclun salad and a great spicy tuna tartare with a great counterpoint soy dressing and avocado. Followed up with 4 "tastings": Caviar beggars purses, lobster profiterole, smoke salmon and a foie gras terrine, all delicious...For mains, red snapper with a morel and vegetable veloute increcredibly fresh tasting and rich. Duck, crisp moist and fatty just as duck should be. The grand desert was made up of a delicious fruit soup, dense chocolate terrine and a warm wonderful pecan tart. Definitely enjoyable all around!
