We returned to Russell's for my annual birthday celebration and once again experienced an outstanding evening. We had specifically requested Andrew as our server and, as always, he continues to impress with his exemplary service -- smooth, knowledgeable, professional, attentive and cordial. The well-trained staff works with panache throughout the elegant service. The meals are upscale, the presentations artful. With... More

It is not often in a restaurant today that you find the owner being the Maitre'de. However, in this case, 87 year old Russell Salvatore greeted us and escorted us to our table last Friday evening at his restaurant in Williamsvile, a suburb of Buffalo,NY. The intimate booth for two in the lounge area reminded me of the movie scenes... More

Our children had arranged a dinner reservation for us at Russell's for an Anniversary gift. The food was delicious. My husband had the New Zealand rack of lamb......it was done to perfection. I enjoyed a 10 oz filet........melt in your mouth good. Our server Kathleen was excellent. They have booths that run the side of the restaurant. If you are... More

Met several others for a business dinner. We tried to get a drink in the bar first but it was too crowded to even reach the bar. There was no one coming around through the crowd to take drink orders either. So we went straight to our table on the dining room. Food was all around very good. I had... More

We really enjoyed our second trip to Russell's. The atmosphere is very nice. I was a bit disappointed to sit all the way in the front room away from the rest of the restaurant. It felt more like a small banquet room. Next time I'll request to sit somewhere else. Our waiter, Ben, was very attentive and very good at... More

Had dinner and drinks with friends. I've eaten in many top restaurants from NYC to Las Vegas. I found the decor to be antiquated and more of a shrine to the owner then a serious streak house. That being said the quality of the food is excellent but pricey. The bar is excellent with top quality tenders. For the price... More

Rated #1 steakhouse in NYS! Had a wonderful dinner here with some old friends. Very pricey, but if you want to spoil yourself this is the steakhouse to do it at!

Great steak dinner! Had the ribeye which was cooked perfectly. Prices are in line with most top notch steak houses. Even enjoyed the New York style cheesecake for dessert which obviously was a must traveling from the west coast. I think the only knock on this place would be how it comes across as stuffy. Lots of suits and older... More

The young man at our hotel recommended Russell's. It was just what we wanted: great food and attentive service. Our waiter was Michael, he was knowledgeable and not intrusive. The other wait staff was efficient. Our food was excellent - try the neptune filet and the ossobuco. The decor is somewhat odd: a wild mixture of modern art paired with... More
