The comp bread and mushroom spread were excellent.
The burrata salad was soso.
Black cod was slightly bland.
Duck had an after taste and was over cooked.
The champagne was good. Unfortunately that is not made in house. Service was good as well.

steak was really good, but everything else (salmon, ribs, sidings, etc.) was subpar.

Got the 6 course dinner for P3,500. Like any meal more than 4 courses, you'd be stuffed before you get to the main course.

The soups were good and so was the desert. Maybe because I was already full, so the main course was just satisfactory.. I was expecting more for the price.

Let me cut to the chase, we had the 6-course Christmas dinner feast and it was good except for the Gazpacho which was not to my liking but was ok for my mom. The Pheasant Patè was not bad. The Mushroom soup was excellent. The Black Cod was too heavy handed with the salt. My tongue and lips got numb in fact. The steak was pretty awesome. The dessert spread was really good.

The crew who served us were very courteous.

BUT, the restaurant manager (the foreign dude) with only four to five tables to entertain on a Christmas Eve did not even go to our table and we felt very offended. I was waiting for him to pass by just to check on us if everything was ok etc but he never did. I'm really hoping it wasn't because we were an All Filipino table (no foreigner) because if that were the case he has one thing coming. He was the only bad experience we had from our Caviar dinner. If this was an oversight on his part then he wasn't doing his job well. He only had five tables. FIVE TABLES to attend to and couldn't even spend a few minutes with new guests. Absolutely rude.

If a romantic French dinner is what you're looking for, Caviar will not disappoint. Pair your dinner with some of the best wines for miles around, try their delectable cheese platter, and make room for dessert! They also make a pretty mean cowboy steak good for sharing between 4 hungry people, and import French delicacies like fines de claire and guinea fowl.

You know when they say take the waiter's suggestions? Definitely listen here. I'm glad we listened.

The smoked salmon is to die for!!! They have their own smoker so they smoke their own stuff. OMG!

The owners, who are the chef and the sommelier, are of Dutch descent. Glad I got to speak with the sommelier.

Definitely coming back!

They have a Sunday brunch that I want try. Soon!

It was our good friend's birthday and we haven't seen this couple for a long time and they've expressed wanting to try this restaurant and so we brought them there.

We started with surprise surprise, champagne and chatted at the bar. My friend pointed out that they have an outdoor dining area which I didn't even get to see the first time we went. Coolness...

Then we proceeded to our table and I was dead set on trying their vegetarian menu (yoohoo Peanut D!) but got distracted. AGAIN. I saw lamb and I LOVE lamb. And please don't tell me how cute they are because yes that works on me. I do feel guilty but it's just so good! I'm probably the only person I know who likes it medium rare and most places are stubborn and still serve it medium (don't blame them but hey, I do like Bambi on the bloody side)

I also ordered the sweetbreads which is still the best I've tried to date. The birthday celebrant ordered the exact same dishes but asked for medium for his lamb. He inhaled everything. His wife who's also a dear friend got the smoked salmon and was very happy with it. And my lamb? For the first time I think, someone finally got it right. I was so happy that I showed a whole piece to my husband with tears in my eyes.

Dave got the duck breast and ate everything but the most memorable part was when we were served the Beluga. They served it the American way (on ice) and the Russian way (on a mirror plate with gold flakes 128563) but it didn't matter. Both ways were good! The tiny eggs had a meaty texture to it that I found myself slightly chewing to break into the skin. And the explosion of flavor after was I must say, pretty damn good.

Staff was awesome and the owner himself serves some of the dishes then provides some info reg our orders. We were the first ones in and the last ones to leave. I think that's a good sign of a very promising restaurant 128077

I'm always suspicious whenever a fine dining restaurant opens up in Alabang. I used to work for one in the same area started by the guy who actually pioneered the fine dining scene in Manila; but despite his talents and concept, the restaurant unfortunately closed down.

Another one opened up in Commerce. Well...different but bordering on Fine Dining because of the wines and the beautifully plated food (the sous chef who was a classmate in culinary days refused to use the word molecular, which was indeed a faint suggestion in most of the dishes) but we got excited because it was a sign that maybe it's possible for a restaurant like that to exist in the south. However, not even a year into it, this place too bid adieu!

So when I heard about this place being a fine dining place, I simply shrugged it off. It's almost like owning a dog. I've lost several of them until I realized that maybe I shouldn't be owning dogs. Am I making sense? I'm just afraid of falling in love with it, believing in it only to be heartbroken when it dies 128529

BUT my husband didn't stop bugging me to try it out. The guy even made the reservation behind my back so I half-heartedly went with it.

The place I have to say is quite beautiful. A massive wine cellar cuts through the dining area which was my favorite part of the restaurant. Accents are tastefully chosen and even the wine glasses are Reidels. I told Dave that I don't recognize any of the decanters they're using. It was obvious that whoever opened this place spent some serious money on it.

We both got the foie and sweetbread to start with and we shared a plate of escargots. After my first bite, the flavor brought me back to my Demi glacé making days. When I had to cook from 6pm to sometimes 12 midnight to get it right. Culinary is NOT a glamorous job. But I got excited and still in disbelief how sakto it was. The escargots were just as excellent. And they still served me the sea bass even though it was not on their ala carte menu. Superb. Dave got Veal and he was happily munching away, while giving me this I-told-you-so look.

It was however, on the expensive side but Dave argued that it showed on the quality of the food. I love food in all facets. I'm just as happy with a hole-in-a-wall or street food find as I am with my foie or steak. Food shouldn't the pretentious and at the end of the day, either it's good or it's bad. So I left the argument and simply enjoyed the evening. Service was good. Food was great. Hopefully, Caviar is here to stay.
