We have now been to Russell's twice now in the last few months. Accommodations at the hotel are way beyond what I expected. Staff go beyond the call of duty. The steaks are by far the best I have ever eaten. We have been going to salvatores for the last twenty five years and decided to try Russell's for a... More

How can you review home? That's how I feel when I stay at Salvatore's Grand Hotel and eat at Russell's Steaks Chops and More. I'm always treated with kind regard and respect. I've never received better service anywhere no matter how much I've paid. The food is second to none and could not be presented more attractively. I am always... More

For a special occasion or just a great meal, Russell's is the place. We have dined many times at Russell's. The food and service is always over the top. Russell is a stickler for the details and is present most of the time, greeting you when you arrive. The staff is efficient and always there when you need them. But... More

Had the best filet mignon I have ever had here. It really does melt in your mouth and, what else can I say .....YUMMY. Allen, our server, is also one of the best servers I have ever had the pleasure of waiting on me. I could almost take him home with me!!!! Bet he could clean and iron well. Everything... More

Russell's steakhouse is voted number one in the Buffalo area. And after dining there, they have my vote as well. A fantastic chef prepared our Rack of Lamp exactly to our liking. The crushed pistachio dressing added to our enjoyment. An impeccable staff, well groomed, manicured and pleasant added to the ambiance of the dining room. I would recommend that... More

Celebrated my wife's cousin's 40th Wedding Anniversary at a party at Russell's. Menu had a number of selections- we had the Steak Russell. Excellent- practically melt in your mouth. Service was great.

We wanted to show our out of town guests (California) one of "the best" that Buffalo has to offer. While waiting for other guests to arrive, we chatted with Art at the hotel desk - Personable, friendly and funny! We were met by Mr. Salvatore, (with all his charisma and charm), he talked with us as though he had known... More

We decided to sit at the bar. It started out well, when I got doused with a full glass of red. This can happen and the bar tender was shocked and nice enough. The unfortunate turn happened when the assistant manger showed up to give me his business card and just saying that I should find a dry cleaner, attach... More

Given Russell Salvatore's pedigree as a steak house operator, it was a surprise to be served a striploin that was under par in flavour and tenderness, and rather overwhelmed by the house sauce. The shrimp cocktail appetiser, fittingly as it was Throwback Thursday, was a perfect example of old-school offerings that fine restaurants have largely left behind. On a personal... More
