Great evening

My wife and I enjoyed a fabulous dinner for two a few weeks ago. We started the evening off in the lounge and enjoyed a drink. Our server for dinner was very friendly and made sure that we were comfortable and didn't have any questions. The food was simply the best.

We recently had dinner at Russell's and it was truly an amazing experience. We had cocktails at the bar and the staff were very friendly.(unfortunately we did not get there names). At dinner, Andrew was our server and he was very knowledgeable and professional and also fun. Our bus boy Mike was very professional also. Both Andrew and Mike went... More

Huge portions, but they are happy to serve everything for two. Excellent service, delicious steaks, fine bloody maries, but stay away from the house specialty salad. And if you share the appetizers and mains, very reasonable for the quality.

We had a family dinner for eight and were treated like we were part of Salvatore's family! Fantastic service and delicious food with great selection, good prices, nice wine menu. After our relaxed dinner, in which we spent a good 2+ hours enjoying, we went into the lounge by the lobby, met Russell and stayed for cocktails and dancing before... More

This is a nice restaurant. Very elegant dining room, decent service. The steaks are very good. I had the filet, and it was cooked properly. The bearnaise sauce was just right. We shared an order of lobster mac and cheese. It was excellent. I would recommend this for a special night out. It is quite expensive.

My wife and I go here every year for our anniversary and I can say, hands down, I've never had a better meal. The food is incredible, the atmosphere is amazing, and the service is top notch. Russell himself greets you at the host stand. The bar is great for after dinner drinks and we were lucky enough to stay... More

Atmosphere is wonderful and you are treated like royalty. Plan on spending a good two hours or more for dinner. Which is not necessarily a bad thing. You are not rushed through the meal. There is time to enjoy each other and family/friends if there. Portions are generous. This is not a quick bite to eat. Food is great.

You are greeted by the owner, seated promptly, informed of all the possibilities, delivered your meal just the way you like it. So what more could you want? Maybe the menu is quite traditional but that's desirable in a steakhouse. Russell's delivers everything I would hope for in a high end steakhouse. I would not go anywhere else when I... More

We love going to Russell's! The food is excellent and the atmosphere is wonderful especially for a special occasion. We almost always choose the dinner for two and the Steak Ala Russell. The servers are very attentive which makes a great dining experience. It is well worth spending extra for an outstanding meal!
