The standards are set so high at Russell's that it's almost impossible to invent new superlatives to describe an evening there. Beyond the sophisticated stylish design and outstanding food, what makes Russell's truly special is the unpretentious yet professional service. It's essence is the staff's attentiveness and responsiveness to your every comfort. We again requested Andrew as our server and... More

Everything about this restaurant is first class; food quality, service, ambiance, friendliness. A true culinary experiance. Worthy of a a trip. We live 90 miles away and try to get there every month or so.

These folks know their way around filet mignon - it was perfection. Friends had the salmon and pork chop as well, everything looked and tasted fantastic. Will definitely be back.

I have been here multiple times and have been pleased with everything. Steaks, seafood, sides and dessert - all great tasting and cooked perfectly. If you are looking for the trendy looking place then you are out of luck as all effort is put into presentation and perfected dining. Atmosphere is classic fine dining. Even the catered food is outstanding.... More

We have been here several times and never had a bad meal. I had the steak ala Russell which was excellent. The service is always first class, as is all of the restaurant.

Went to Russells as an after work Friday night treat. Met Owen at the bar and had a glass of wine. The building exterior looks a mall but inside is a different world. The bar area is warm glowing lights and mica filters, but there are at least 8 HUGE screen tvs as if its a sports bar and the... More
