An excellent restaurant without question. Service is impeccable and polite. Complimentary tapenade with bread is great. French onion soup was excellent, seafood bisque was pretty good. NY Strip and lobster tail entrées were both on point. Lobster Mac & Cheese side dish is very good too. Chocolate cake dessert is so-so but the Bananas Foster Cannoli was delicious.

I've never had such good service at any restaurant, ever. From carrying my wife's drink from the bar to the table, to refolding and replacing napkins, to clarifying and making suggestions regarding the menu, the staff made an OUTSTANDING impression. The food was equally great. If you go with the $45 dollar menu, don't think of it as ordering on... More

Been here several times, most recently for my Birthday. Food and service were great, as always. I especially like the lamb chops, which I think they do as well as anyone. They also make martinis just the way I like them. A great special occasion dinner place. We will definitely return.

My wife and I recently stayed here to celebrate our anniversary. We love this hotel! Although a bit pricey it's worth every penny. The staff was very pleasant. The owner often greets his guests personally at the restaurant. Mr. Salvatore is a very nice guy and will to hold a conversation with his guests. It is just a short drive... More

I always have the Cabernet, Filet and Crème Brulee when I go to Russells, not just because it rhymes but because it is always delicious.. The filet is always tender, juicy and cooked to perfection. . If you have coffee after your meal it is served with fresh whipped cream and chocolate shavings! You cant go wrong with the dinner... More

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!...

Great food at a fair price. This place will spoil you for any other steak house. Russell Salvatore has been serving the finest steaks and seafood for a long time, and his expertise shows. We were recently here twice in a weeks time, at either end of a trip from the Buffalo,airport. While away I avoided having a steak, because... More

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
