A chance to do some caviar tasting at a Michelin-starred sit-down restaurant is what got me interested in Caviar Russe but it was difficult to anticipate what the experience would be like. Fortunately, there were nothing but pleasant surprises. 1. Ambiance – we had a choice of tables as the only party through much of the lunch period on a... More

Exceptional experience in a cosy and quiet setting in Madison Avenue. There are just a few tables in the restaurant. We had the 10 course tasting menu. Though this was not cheap (245 per person), it was a great experience. Nice service.

What an experience!!! From the second you walk in and are welcomed by the host to walking out and being helped with your jacket. I've never received such amazing service before, very attentive and will take their time to help with any questions you may have. The food looked breathtaking and the flavors were mind-blowing. Highly recommend it to anyone... More

Service, ambience, staff and food are superb. Wouldn't change a thing. Decadent, extravagant and worth every penny. Have been here many times and they are flawless each and every time. If you enjoy caviar and want to enjoy a lovely afternoon or evening, you will not be disappointed.

Nice selection of caviar (delicious osetra and Perriet Jouet champagne) for first timers and repeaters! Pre fixed (3, 5 or 10 course) selections for dinner were terrific, egg selection quite different and enjoyable!

We heard that Caviar Russe had a Michelin star, and we love caviar-- our fancy NYC lunch sounded like a no-brainer. Unfortunately, the food was disgusting. Our appetizer, the King Crab, was quite good. We didn't mind that it cost over $100, because we got what we paid for. The service was good, as it should have been, the place... More

I had a lovely lunch at Caviar Russe with my girlfriend and it was fabulous. This is a tiny restaurant with well put together transitional decor. We thoroughly enjoyed every course and extremely attentive service.

The caviar here was perfect. Served as a sampler of three varieties (or you can choose single varietes a la carte). Accompanied with blinis, toast and sliced potatoes rounds, along with creme fraiche and chopped parsley. We had a three course dinner; you can also choose a six-course tasting menu. Very expensive--around $950 with tips for three people. Celebrating a... More

Caviar, room and service all top notch. Highly recommended. You will not be disappointed. The rest of the menu is not tasty but not the reason to visit. You come here for caviar and get ready for spending no less than Usd300 per person.

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
