Description: Russets is located between Aspen and Glenwood Springs in charming and historic downtown Carbondale. Voted by locals as the best restaurant in Carbondale, Russets offers a warm, comfortable atmosphere, attentive and friendly service, and a menu that affords a quick bite, a full fledged fine dining experience, or anything in between. We are recent winners of Wine Spectator magazine’s Award of Excellence for our well crafted wine list and we also boast some of the valley's most popular house cocktails. Russets is a come-as-you-are locals' favorite, with service, wine, and food that is second to none.

You will not ever be disappointed at Russetts. Unfortunately it has closed for good. Such a big loss for Carbondale and the Roaring Fork Valley.

The elk medallions are so awesome! Very tender and perfectly cooked, medium rare. The service is always spot on and friendly. Upper end on price but really good food.

They are keenly aware of cross contamination and can prepare many items on the menu to truly gluten free standards. The staff is friendly and helpful and you have but to ask. Everything we had was very tasteful and the ambiance and decor... More

We had a fine meal, ate out in the covered patio area. Very friendly staff, the meal was appropriate for the somewhat pricier menu. A very good experience in a great town.

Enjoyed the charming outdoor seating area. Excellent and most attentive wait staff. Enjoyed a very fresh salad and had the nut encrusted rainbow trout, scalloped potatoes and baby green beans. All was fresh and flavorful!
