Consistently great food, but overpriced for the portions with mediocre service

This has been one of our favorite dining options over the past few years, but the same chorus rings true with other recent reviews and is, sadly, becoming more consistent during our experiences. The Good: Food is consistently delicious, creative, and well prepared. This has never been an issue... read more

While dining at Russo's, my companion and I both selected New Orleans style mains along with a salad. The service was good and we both found our food to be tasty; as I enjoyed a Hurricane we relived our trips to New Orleans. Of course, this is still an out of the way spot in Ohio but having eaten here... More

This place is a bit out of the way but it's worth the drive. I visited Russos with 3 of my girlfriends on a Thursday night. APPS: we started out with oysters and calamari- both of which were mouth-watering good. SERVICE: the server (Lisa) was awesome, she was very knowledgeable about the menu and her recommendations on wine and dishes... More

I agree with another reviewer that service is awful and management doesn't seem to pay any attention to what is going on with diners. May have had same server - no water or coffee refills, etc. Food is overpriced. Even though close by and thought it was good when first opened, won't be returning.

The food was very good - a mix of creole and Italian. There are some more traditional dishes on the menu for those less adventurous. The menu is posted online, but the descriptions are more fanciful than the dishes appear and taste. None of our party of six was disappointed in their choice of dinner entrees. The atmosphere is comfortably... More

Location in the middle of no where, hosts seemed confused & we waited about 20 minutes past our reservation time but the jambalaya was so good & the carrot cake was out of this world. Server was attentive & pleasant. We will return.

Recently returned to Russo's. Previous visits were good. Had dinner with friends and we all found the food good overall but overpriced. So not a good value. Server, Sophie, was not attentive even though it was a Tuesday night and the restaurant was not hectic. She spent time visiting with other guest she knows. We simply were not on her... More

If you are a fan of Louisiana style cooking or have a taste for Italian how lucky are you that you can find both under one roof in Cuyahoga Falls. This a special place for us, we had our first date here and come back once or twice a year. The food is very good and depending upon your take... More

I have been to Russo's probably 4 or 5 times before my last visit in June but I was never a big fan because their menu isn't very large and never changes.Honestly, it had been a couple years since we had been there. We decided to go to celebrate my husband's birthday(He LOVES the place).My daughter and son-in-law also went... More

We are regular diners here. The food and service are consistently decent. My only criticism is that the use way too much salt with meal preparation . The prices are a bit high but probably worth it.
