Went to Russell's on the recommendation from a friend. The atmosphere is cool. We were seated at a small table by the window in front, great for people watching. I ordered the crab legs.

I always find this restaurant hard to review. It is not there with the high end steakhouses, but it is actually ok. I guess that is a nice balance. This trip we had the fillet and the steak diane. They were excellent. The sides were a little lame. The starters were a little larger than we expected, but actually quite... More

Menu is unique and waitstaff know it well. This is a place we never miss when in Vail. The last time I had the Braised Lamb Ribs and they were excellent. Crab cakes are also very good. Wine selection is good, desserts are excellent. Manager was friendly and interacted with customers freely, but did not intrude. A sign of a... More

Russell's was the best place we went while in Vail. The wait staff was friendly, and very accommodating even though I had a broken ankle.

The food was OK, nothing really special and so not worthy for the price. The hostess wasn´t nice and the waitress kept forgetting our drinks.

the meals are very good the service is not, looks like they are going to make you a favor, we arrive early to our reservation trying to have some drinks before at the bar and they can not accommodated us, lack of interests on costumer satisfaction.

Excellent. Great martinis, apps, fantastic steak cooked perfectly, and really reasonably priced, particularly given it's location just over the covered bridge on Bridge Street in Vail. We will go back again and again.
