I have extremely high standards for restaurant service after spending 10 years in management of them. This restaurant brings service at a level that has been forgotten, and no longer taught. The staff was effortless and discreet in their engagements at the table, allowing three couples to enjoy great conversation, drinks and terrific food. While prices are a bit higher... More

Wanted a steak dinner after an afternoon of wine tasting. Our friends recommended Russell's. Wow, what a great place!!! Restaurant is inside a hotel but you would have thought the the whole place was built for the restaurant. Beautiful decor with great wood carved pillars and accents. Fabulous lighting fixtures with just the right amount of light for an intimate... More

My husband and I had dinner there Saturday night to celebrate our 43rd anniversary. It was wonderful!! From the appetizer to dessert we were treated like royalty. Our dessert was included in the dinner for two. But the waiter brought us a plate with our two desserts, 2 chocolate covered strawberries and lots of whipped cream. It had a sparkler... More

i dined at Russell's on a recent trip through Buffalo. I ordered a nice filet and a good bottle of wine. The service and physical restaurant were excellent. I would stay here again and expect to in the fall. Loved it.

My husband and I were celebrating our 12th anniversary and had the pleasure of dining at Russell's. Two things that impressed me from the start were that Russell greeted us upon arrival, and that the ambiance was stunning-romantic; the perfect choice for our anniversary celebration! Equally impressive was the service. Our waiter and all waitstaff were at all times attentive... More

We came into town late on Friday. We were staying at the hotel but we were hungry and wanted a drink. We weren't dressed properly for the restaurant, but there is a wonderful bar area that has many tables. We ordered the dinner for two. I'm telling you that our meals were fantastic....and we are people who are usually disappointed... More
