Unexpectedly good

The building is sort of tucked away, and it's a VERY informal place, but I had wonderful salmon, and they really try to please their customers.

Extraordinary food and service. My partner and I shared the meat, cheese, and fruit plate and an aruggala salad. Even the bread was excellent. For the main course, he had steak with Crab Oscar. He said it was perfect and shared bites with me. He was right. I am not typically into steak, but I would have totally enjoyed this... More

We've eaten at Russells' several times, usually with my wife's parents, for whom Russell's is their favorite restaurant. We know we are in for a treat every time we visit, and it has never disappointed. The servers are on a first-name basis with regular patrons, and they greet you like old friends, and remember your favorite dishes. Service, from the... More

Okay… So the meal was most amazing but I have to tell you, the service was incredible too. Don't let this out of the way restaurant fool you.

Steaks too tough for older diners to eat. Halibut was bad. The salmon entree was good. The table bread was soaked in too much butter. Server made snide remarks about the table not ordering dessert which seemed silly given that we had ordered appetizers and drinks and had a large bill already. I would not bring older diners here as... More

Russell's is a favorite when colleagues are visiting from out of town. It's not too far from our office and there's always plenty of parking. If you're not familiar with the area, you'll need directions or a GPS. Food is always delicious, at the right temperature, and fresh. Good selection of wines and cocktails, nice atmosphere/décor. Simply splendid each time... More

Russells is a nice Restaurant to go to!! I have been there many times. I was disappointed when I ordered Fettuccine and Prawns to find they do not remove the tails...The prawns are covered in a sauce and hard to see. For an upscale restaurant (and the price) I would hope that I would not have to remove the tails... More

Russell's is our go-to Special Occasion place. The restaurant is located an old Dairy Barn. They have a casual, laid-back atmosphere with a fine dining menu. The service is incredible and we have never once in the 20 times we've been there had a bad meal or bad service. I'm a pretty finicky eater so I have to admit I... More

This was the number one place the locals recommended while we were in the area. We were very excited because the restaurant was very close to our hotel and the tasting rooms. Very non-descriptive atmosphere, not bad, just kind of blah. There were wine bottles everywhere and I have to admit, a big peeve of mine is dusty anything. Well,... More
