Fantastic Steak

The hot bread that was immediately served was very good and we had fantastic tuna sashimi as an appetizer.. I was in a steak mood and had a divine filet that was cooked to perfection (medium rare)! The side dishes, however, green beans and potato gratin, were so-so - the meat was the star. I... read more

If you want an upscale yet comfortable restaurant in Vail with a view of Gore Creek, try Russell's. We had dinner there and everyone in our party loved their meals. As soon as we walked in the door, we were welcomed by some amazing aromas, and we were greeted and seated quickly. Our server, Wesley, was fantastic. He was attentive... More

Russel's was recommended to us by a Vail local/passerby and we were happy we chose it for my husband's birthday dinner. We were seated in a quieter room (we discovered the more gregarious bar area as we were leaving. When we were first seated, it felt a little too quiet, but filled up soon, so we weren't so alone.

My onion soup wasn't to die for, too sweet for my taste, not worth the calories so I didn't finish it. My filet mignon was delicious as was the scalloped potatoes that came with it. One of my friends had lamb and commented that it was really good but two that had trout commented that it was tasteless. Not many... More

We were referred to this restaurant from the owners of a bicycle store from whom we rented mountain bikes for day. After riding the two mountains all day, we were eager to enjoy a delicious meal alongside the beautiful river next to it. Upon arriving at the restaurant, my wife stood waiting in the lobby by the hostess' window for... More

Steak is served with style and substance here, but one gets the sense other options are equally solid, so overall another recommended diner in Vail.

Great steakhouse atmosphere in Vail Village. Would highly recommend for an evening dinner where you want to dress up. Walking distance to most of the properties in Vail Village and Lionshead, or just a quick shuttle ride to. Great steak and pasta dishes.
