    Ambiance was great, food was almost as great. There a were couple a couple rolls that weren’t as good as I was hoping but hey we don’t all have the same palette. Regardless, I would 100% recommend Kaviar

    Expensive and portions tiny AF! Must be a food shortage already. Spent $400 for two with no alcohol, and had to get IN&Out on the way home! Service was great, ambiance nice. But those portions! And some of the sashimi was chewy! Just an honest review!

    I'm torn on how to review this place. The food was good. The drinks were good. The service and ambiance were good. But the price point didn't seem to justify the overall experience. We ordered an the crispy rice appetizer, the yellowtail ceviche, the Denver wagyu, the amberjack bluefin tuna roll and I had to finish my meal with a blue crab hand roll (just because that's my absolute favorite at any sushi spot). We had two specialty cocktails to top that, and our bill was about $250. Our service was ok. I asked what the sauce was that came with the wagyu and she just said it was a butter sauce. For $58 I hope it wasn't just butter, but regardless it was ok. Again, the quality was good. The taste was flavorful. The cocktails were ok. I just don't know why the price point was that high. Nothing "WOW'd" me. I don't think we will be back. We had a good time. We left satisfied. But for $250 I would expect more from the service department or the flavor profile department. I really don't mind spending money on a top notch experience ... but unfortunately, this wasn't it for us.

    We went here for my housemate's birthday dinner. The service was pretty good, our waiter was nice and gave us some recommendations which was helpful and always appreciated! Food was good too but definitely on the pricey side so be prepared to drop a decent amount of money lol. We ordered crispy rice, cream mussels, tempura, gyoza, 3-4 types of sushi, drinks, & a couple of rolls. Total before tip for 4 of us was about $540. The quality of the fish was fresh and presentation was good but all food was really just OK - nothing really special in terms of flavor or being super memorable. I personally feel like you could get a lot of the same items at another nice sushi restaurant for a fraction of the price. Overall it was a good experience and the ambiance was nice for a fancier dinner. Reservations were easy to make and we waited maybe less than 10 min for our table once we arrived.

    Good great, but service was awful. Over an hour to get one course, which the waiter then proceeded to bring the wrong food, and then promptly delivered our correct food to another table. Not apologetic at all, and we were one of 3 parties in the restaurant. Avoid at all costs

    Amazing food. Service was sloooow. Waiter forgot to tell us they were out of a particular item that we ordered. After 45 min of waiting, we asked and he told us at that time they they no longer had it. Good place to try once, but probably not often.

    Food was really high quality and even the miso soup was a cut above. The service was Pleasant and fast and I really like the hidden aspect of the staircase to get in the upstairs dining room. I do think the water is overpriced.

    Mother’s Day 2022 - my son and I had a fabulous dinner. Excellent sushi dishes! Everything we ordered was perfect. Only one suggestion: Way too many spicy items. The customers should have the option to order spicy or non-spicy then all dishes will definitely be a hit! Rock Shrimp Tempura Roll - shrimp was cooked to perfection, moist and tender, but didn’t read the spicy mayo and disappointed I couldn’t eat it all. A bit pricy, but quality is outstanding!

    Kaviar is my and my husband’s absolute favorite restaurant. Food is phenomenal, service is amazing, we’re been here at least 5 times and have enjoyed every single meal. The bluefin toro is our all time favorite along with the lemon roll. Lychee mint martini is delicious! We can’t wait to be back here soon!

    Everything is awesome and this like like the 5th time coming but for whatever reason the last few times they have been out of a lot of random items. For example I always drink kikusui and it’s just the sake I like and don’t care for the price. But the last 3 times it hasn’t been available but on the menu. At least have an alternative that’s VERY similar that actually tastes similar. I would order the big bottle but 50% will go to waste. Then we wanted coffee but they were out then we wanted a desert and they were out. I love the place and the ambiance all I would suggest is print new menus daily with what you have
