We joined a large group of friends at Russell's for dinner last night. The food is always excellent at Russell's, but my grilled salmon was exceptional last night. My wife had halibut, which is one of Russell's signature dishes. The atmosphere is very rustic and inviting. Tables are not on top of each other. The staff is always very attentive.... More

The waiter was attentive and joked around with is quite a bit. The food was scrumptious - we split a salad , and I had scallops... More

We dropped in and ate at the bar. Such a great choice when tables are filled. We hardly ever wait for a table if the bar is open. Sometimes, depending on the restaurant, the bar can be noisy. Russell's bar wasn't. It was lovely, friendly and tasty. Restaurant has a very charming feel to it. Enjoyed our light dinner. It... More

Seared scallops, Alaska halibut, PNWSalmon, and there you go. I saw a fillet mignon pass by that looked really good. Caesar salad was excellent, not over-dressed and the croutons were toasted perfectly. Not that hungry so I had the beef carpaccio which was delicious. Great wine list and perfect service. Puts Bothell on the map.

I am excited to find this place so close to my house. The building is different and charming, but the service was excellent, and the steak was outstanding. The quality is recognized in the bill, but tey also have a nice selection of beer.

Lunch time in Bothell and we thought we'd try Russels based on reviews and the website's photos of the pastoral view on a sunny afternoon. Unfortunately, that view is from an upstairs private room, closed at lunchtime, so our view was the surrounding tables which we had to set ourselves. We thought that perhaps we had entered the Panasonic (next... More

It's in an old barn from when the area was a farm, now an office park. The restaurant part is on the first floor with huge timbers overhead. Can't decide if I like the ambiance or not. The menu is well thought out with a wide variety of choices. We both had the fresh halibut, which was well prepared and... More

Food: Fail I ordered the duck and a Caesar salad. The Caesar was essentially undressed hearts of romaine with some parmesan cheese grated on top. The salad was completely tasteless. A real disappointment since a decent Caesar is pretty easy to do. The duck was reasonably well prepared. The skin was close to crisp, but not really crisp. The garlic... More

We have eaten here a few different times. The food is good, but not great. Atmosphere is alright. Basically Russell's is ALMOST great, but it's not. Frankly, we forget about Russell's whenever we think of places to go.
