We had several items from the tasting menu. The Foie Gras was more of a pate, but fabulous. The classic caviar tasting was the perfect amount. The waitstaff were attentive.

We came here for an early dinner so it was empty. Would like to see it when there are more people and some atmosphere. Place is beautiful and caviar is plentiful. But expensive and need time to enjoy.

We love Caviar Russe. The perfect place for a romantic pause in the middle of Midtown Madison Avenue. We love to go for lunch/late lunch with their excellent caviar service with all the proper accoutrements from blinis, small sliced potatoes and toast to sour cream...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.

No. For lunch, we go casual but never jeans. In the evening, we tend to dress up a bit more. Jacket, no tie for him. Dinner dress (not cocktail) for her.
