Another spectacular dinner at Russell's along with a great night at the hotel. Three couples who enjoy fine dining, all impressed again! I know that Russell has a restaurant industry school adjacent to the hotel and restaurant, but all anybody wanting to work in the industry needs to do is visit here to see exactly how it should be done!...

You will love eating at Russell's!!! This place has a great menu and very attentive staff. I had a very tasty steak dinner done to perfection. My wife had the rack of lamb which she said was the best lamb dinner she ever had. I highly recommend that you spend the night at the hotel. Great value!!!

There is a reason this restaurant is ranked #1! Everything from beginning to end was perfect. We were celebrating our wedding and the staff really made it special. When we arrived, a member of my party bought champagne, and the staff came around and poured it for us. They explained specials, brought bread and left us for an appropriate time... More

Stayed here on Sept. 25. Got the room/dinner deal. Highly recommend this. Pork chop was delicious. Humberto was the best waiter and took great care of us. Creme brûlée was delicious. Family had chicken Oscar, filet mignon and lamb. Everyone loved it. Birthday dessert was very nice. Thank you Russell and your great staff.

The restaurant was packed on a Tuesday evening. Hubs was wished a Happy birthday immediately. We ordered from dinner for 2 menu ($45 per person) I always upgrade with... More
