“Pretty good stuff.”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

The food was pretty good, but not excellent to match the robust price point. The daily special was crawfish etouffe, which was pretty good. I'm not sure if crawfish are supposed to be the size of peas, though? The service was great. The salad of the day had a warm bacon dressing to make it a wilted salad, basically. The cook on duty/chef refused to put the salad dressing of the day on the house salads that came with the meal. Uh, what? So if you go, sit outside and get a sandwich and a beer and avoid the indoor "atmosphere". I'm just not feeling it. The crust on the pecan pie was also pretty good! I liked the pie and wine.

“Excellent”
Reviewed May 3, 2014 via mobile

Around these parts it gets no better than this. Best pork chop anywhere. The steaks are amazing. The service is prompt. Sit close to the action and watch these folks put their all into it. Great food and a staff that really takes it to the next level. 24 hours later and I'm still reveling in the flavors from dinner last night. Great job!

“Amazing Dinner at the Open Kitchen Bar”
Reviewed April 26, 2014

Great for couples, friends, business! Had dinner with two business associates and we sat at the bar for dinner. Kurt was our waiter and we had a fantastic meal starting with Marty's Oysters, Cajun Meatloaf, Haddock and great wine! Highly recommended to sit at the Kitchen/Bar area.

“Two choices”
Reviewed April 15, 2014

Excellent food! You have two choices here... The front restaurant is Russo's, which is more formal or finer dining. The back is the Baccus Lounge, more of a bar with a more casual menu. They have great weekly specials.

“Big disappointment!”
Reviewed April 10, 2014

Was there with my wife for a celebration dinner this week. Service was good and prompt. Appetizer was very good. Our server was happy to split selections for us in the kitchen. We ordered the $35 NY strip steak. Flavor was great, but quality of meat was terrible ... riddled with chunky gristle. When the server asked us how we were enjoying our meal, we reported our issue and asked that she inform the manager and the chef. Neither one approached us ... and it was a situation where the inexperienced server did not know how to handle a complaint. We should have sent it back, but instead paid our bill and left ... for the last time at Russo's.
