Came here before and left a previous review which was "Poor" 2/5. Returned since and things seem to be 100% turned around. Fast, efficient service from friendly, attentive staff with fantastic food.

If you haven't paid a visit to the Russell already, then put it on your 'to do' list. Great atmosphere, attentive staff and delicious food (Great early bird menu). We were there for a family birthday and we had small children with us, the staff made them feel special and nothing was a problem. I can't recommend this restaurant enough,... More

This is a small, friendly restaurant. Serving a broad selection of food choices to suit mist palates. Even ones like mine...awkward. No onions or garlic please!! Staff are accommodating and friendly. Prices are a touch high but I guess they go the extra mile in service so I'm happy to pay! Also seems adult friendly, ..limited junior clients viable.

Came here for a birthday with a large group of friends. They were very accommodating to such a large group. Sat, ordered and waited a short time for the food to arrive. I had the chicken wings to start, they were delicious, but far too much sauce on them. Made it difficult to eat. Had a medium steak and chips... More

I have been here for lunch with work maybe 3 times and as my romantic place for dinner 3 as well. There is a great atmosphere for group lunches and also my dates. The food is great, the staff friendly, attentitive and helpful. Although my dates didn't go so well I can't fault The Russell's intimate atmosphere (group or date)... More

Very ordinary food, I love continental food but navan is missing a good fine dining i guess. Pastas, Fajitas etc is very disappointing. Same boring cream sauces etc. Restaurant loks good but if i remember the waitress was a bit rude, as she acknowledged our need but never returned. Fish was missing seasoning and there was too much on plate... More

This was my second time here and it never fails to impress, started with the seafood paella and had pork belly for the main. We were looked after by Paddy who was brilliant and kudos to head chef Aidan, the food was brilliant.
