    The food is nothing to write home about, and the service is sub par. In the entire two hours I was there, the server checked on me once. The ambience is very nice and the decor is great, but it is paired with loud music that hinders with your ability to have a conversation. Overall, Kaviar is a place you can take someone to grab drinks and maybe an appetizer to impress them with the atmosphere, but if you’re looking for a great dining experience I would look elsewhere.

    Came here for my birthday because my wife and I never do high-end restaurants like this and we wanted to try an alternative to Nobu. My short review is that it did not disappoint, but I can't fully say paying this much is completely worth it. It also depends on what you get. Here's what we got: Wagyu Tacos ($27) - 7.5/10. Very tasty, but it only comes with 4 small wonton tacos that are a couple bites each. A good appetizer, but not worth the price. Coconut Mango Roll ($21) - 7.5/10. A disappointment for me, but my wife liked it a lot. I didn't find the mango to be very flavorful. Lemon Roll ($27) - 8/10. Very good, but probably too much spicy tuna in it. Could use another ingredient in the roll. Baked Lobster ($25) - 8.5/10. Delicious, well-balanced, filling. We got the cut roll instead of the hand roll because it was double the lobster and only $5 more. Worth it. Amberjack Bluefin Tuna Roll ($29) - 10/10. Perfect roll, best one I've every had. So many different flavors and every ingredient tasted great. Glad our server recommended it. We also had a couple mojitos that were very good and not more expensive than usual. As for the ambience, it was fine. A little too dark, but not loud. I'm glad to have come here once, but probably won't again.

    We were in the area for one night and decided to try this place as we could easily reserve online. They were great through the experience! We were celebrating a birthday and they made sure to make the occasion special. One thing to note is that their sushi is not just standard rice, wasabi, fish. There's a little extra! We were in the mood for anything, so we enjoyed the twist each piece had, although I know others who much prefer a straightforward approach. I'd like to give them extra props for their non-alcoholic mojito. It's rare I can find a good non-alcoholic drink, but this definitely was. The atmosphere was great for a relaxing night out.

    Everything about my dining experience was great! The moment you walk in you get the vibe as you walk up the stairs. It’s very dimly lit and all blacked out absolutely in love! So simplistic yet sophisticated! The fish was very fresh and the presentation definitely delivered! Alcoholic beverages were fantastic and consistent each round! (Try the lychee martini) service was fantastic as well! 10/10 would highly recommend we will be back!!

    We dined here for our wedding anniversary and overall had a good experience but nothing special. The ambiance was ok although we found it darker inside than expected. The staff were nice and respectful but nothing that made me want to return. No acknowledgement of the anniversary even though was mentioned during the visit. Sushi was good overall especially the premier uni but this is expected since the price is on the higher side. We also ordered the hamachi kama which was decent. We have had better elsewhere but it was a good size so we were very full afterwards. Service as we mentioned was fine but was not up to expectations. We have had better attentive service at other sushi places without the fanfare here. We waited 25 minutes for someone to come by so we could request the check. In all honesty we wont be back since overall experience was not that good even if the food is good. However, if its a date night and you like a very dark ambience with decent food, albeit pricey then by all means try it out.

    The hype has settled down .. overall a great sushi restaurant to dine at, at Pasadena .. we started with multiple apps and mock tails “as they do not have a full alcohol license so the drinks are on the lite side .. presentation was spot on .. After we order multiple rolls sashimi’s and Nigiri Great quality!!!! Fresh and flavorful… we asked for a dessert menu .. Would recommend more dessert options as they only had one cheese cake to offer that night but was not a deal breaker .. Will definitely come back !!

    Such a fun place for a girl's night out. The ambiance was perfect and it wasn't overly crowded so I could easily carry out conversation with my friends. The food was so SO delicious and the presentation was everything. I highly recommend the oysters if you are into that sort of thing.

    The food and service were lovely even though they were understaffed. The place was way too dark for dining and the black drapes made it claustrophobic. Urge venue and location is beautiful , if they either open the drapes or eliminate them it will bring out the beauty of the brick structure and make it much more elegant.

    Had higher hopes for this place but it definitely falls into the trap of “white people sushi” which means over-sauced dishes where you can’t even taste the fish anymore, listing “premium” ingredients on the menu but putting the bare minimum of each into each dish, and overall everything just tasting mediocre. The decor is alright. It looks cooler in the photos but definitely not as nice in person. I ordered an old-fashioned (first thing listed on the cocktails list) and it came super sweet and tasting like cough syrup. Bad start. Continuing to look at the menu will reveal overly inflated prices typical of trendy “sushi” spots but completely lacking the atmosphere, food quality/taste and portion sizes to justify those ridiculous prices. Uni pasta “with uni infused cream” was $42 and came with 4 tiny pieces of uni on basically what was an over-creamed carbonara with no uni in the cream. This place will probably close down soon when people realize it’s a waste of money and the food and atmosphere sucks.
