“Cool time”
Reviewed 3 November 2013 via mobile

Right off Madison Avenue, we first made reservations before going. The service was great, everything we requested was granted. We had a great time.

“best food”
Reviewed 22 October 2013

It was easy to make reservation, and the food was excellent. We had a party of 10, and received very good service. The decoration of the restaurant is very unique. We'd highly recommend this place.

“Great atmosphere, delicious food, attentive service”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

My husband & I went to dinner here last night on a pre-fixe dinner they were advertising. I was interested since my husband loves caviar but hadn't put much thought into the space. I'm glad i did though because it was one of the better meals we've had in the city.
We started with some oysters which were fresh & delicate, then had a lobster roll which was filling as it was a bit large but very tasty.
The 3-course dinner started with eggs 4 ways with caviar- our favorite part of the dinner- scrambled with caviar, deviled quail eggs with truffle oil, fried quail egg with caviar & poached on a potato pancake with a thick slice of bacon (my husband's favorite). Our main course was a tasty combo of scallops, alaskan crab and foie gras- very rich but a complex blend of flavors. Dessert was more kitschy than tasty- the hazelnut crisp was very nice & parfait- the blueberries with goat cheese was not my style but cute in trying to look like caviar & i'm more of a chocolate person.
All the wine pairings were perfect! The place is a bit pricey but if you're looking for a romantic & fabulous night out- i highly recommend this place!

“Fantastic for caviar lovers”
Reviewed 8 October 2013

Quite the splash on Madison Avenue. Very small and intimate place (reservations essential!). Recommended by our concierge and was definitely worth it. I'm a fan of caviar and there are few places in the world that cater to it just as well as this one does. Beautifully decorated and excellent food and service. Would highly recommend for a luxury treat. Very expensive though, even by New York standards!
