Excellent food! You have two choices here... The front restaurant is Russo's, which is more formal or finer dining. The back is the Baccus Lounge, more of a bar with a more casual menu. They have great weekly specials.

Was there with my wife for a celebration dinner this week. Service was good and prompt. Appetizer was very good. Our server was happy to split selections for us in the kitchen. We ordered the $35 NY strip steak. Flavor was great, but quality of meat was terrible ... riddled with chunky gristle. When the server asked us how we... More

We heard so much about Russ's we drove 45 min to try it on a Friday night. We had reservations at the bar and we're seated timely. The bartender was cordial but not overly talkative. Sitting at bar is very entertaining since you see the open kitchen in action. My guests had mussels, chicken fried steak and bolognese pasta. All... More

My husband and I went to Russo's last Friday and had 8:30 reservations. My husband had been once before and raved about his meal, so we were excited for the evening. We were seated promptly by the hostess and then.....nothing. We sat at our table for 20 minutes without even a hello. No eye contact, no water, no server, NOTHING.... More

We have had some fabulous meals at Russo's but none within the last year. We had such a good time and great food the first few times we were here that we kept on going back even when our food was not that good thinking maybe we should have just ordered differently when we weren't raving over our meals. However,... More

While dining at the main restaurant is nice, I find the best food is actually served in the attached lounge. From burger night to pizza night, I have yet to have a terrible meal. My favorite is burger night and I am consistently served the best burger I've ever had at a restaurant. This has become my favorite go-to restaurant... More

This is a nice restaurant in a strange place. We've eaten here only once and the food was great but prices are pretty high. The food is about 50% better than a typical chain but the prices (at least for our meal) are double, so i wouldn't call it a good value. And the ambiance is basically nonexistent. You'd think...

We enjoyed a great dinner at Russo's. Besides the dinner menu, they had a full menu of specials for the evening. I ordered a mojito to start (thank goodness they had the mint since I have been to a few restaurants where they don't have any!) and my husband had a beer. We then ordered for appetizers the arancini (rice... More

it's best to go there with a small group of friends or clients - you and they won't be disappointed. The menu is large, but not overwhelming, and they offer fabulous specials. The food is definitely worth the price. From the dinner salad and bread to the dessert, the food is exquisite. There's something that I can't quite put my... More

My wife and I usually go for the cajun specials and are rarely disappointed. The gumbo is wonderful, and whatever they are putting the crawfish sause on is always a good choice if you like that kind of food. It isn't inexpensive, but I have paid more for food that wasn't as good on more than one occasion.
