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.

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.

Came here for my mom's birthday dinner, and it was a great decision! From the amuse bouche to the desserts, it was mouth watering and very delicious! Someday (soon,hopefully) I'd like to treat her to their caviar tasting menu... Yum! Service was spotless and on-point.

It fine dining for sure with close personal attention and deliciously made food. Highly recommended. Could have a few more classic Russian items... More

This is just a partial review because I had just had lunch at one of my favorite sushi restaurants in Manhattan, but while walking back to Penn Station I strolled past Caviar Russe, and thought, "why not?" so I stopped in for a snack. What a snack it was. The caviar menu is outstanding, and I went for 25g of... More

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.
