My family went to Russell's, a party of 8. The waitress was attentive, but tried very hard to sell dessert and it was a little annoying that we had to say no multiple times. My husband ordered salmon, and he loved it. I ordered a NY strip steak and the waitress said that they typically cook the steaks to rare.... More

Years ago this lovely white dairy barn dominated the landscape east of the 405 near Bothell, and is now tucked into a high tech business park. The restaurant is very noisy with many hard surfaces in the refurbished barn--on the plus side, the noise provides ambiance for private table conversation so parents who wish to bring little ones to this...

we have been coming to Russel's for lunch almost 2-3 times a month and so far it has not disappointed us. Good burger, good salad and soup, not too big, just the right amount for the price we paid.

After a day of wine tasting, sitting down to dinner at Russell's was a wonderful finish. We all chose red wine friendly entrees (rack of lamb, beef), and paired it with a wonderful Alexandra Nicole Quarry Butte we had bought that day. The restaurant doesn't charge corkage on your first bottle if it is a Washington wine, which is a... More

I really wanted to like Russell's. The good TA reviews sucked me in. But the reality was that the food was bland and overcooked. Sorry Russell, for $140 for dinner for my wife and I I really need to be wowed to give you a better rating.

This was my sister's and her husbands first time to Russell's. I as hoping to show them that we do have good places to eat in our area, they're from the Kirkland/Bellevue area. The... More

The food was fantastic but a bit expensive. Service was very friendly and there when needed. The atmosphere is nice but tables are a little close together for my liking. Overall though, I would say it is a very nice place to dine. Especially for a special occasion.

We received a voucher from Eye of the Needle winery for a complimentary appetizer. Never been there before and would have no hesitation to return. No complaints at all. Very good service, good mixed drinks, food and all the while did not think we were in a barn.

My wife and I had dinner recently, and the food was delicious. The service was also top on the line. Plan on spending a few bucks, but definitely worth it!
