Reviewed July 24, 2013

We flew in late to Seattle and by the time we got to the restaurant, we were the last to be seated after everyone else had left. We had the best service and the food was outstanding. I had the halibut special and it was very, very good. My wife had a soup and salad. All 6 of us ere impressed with the food and by the attentive staff. Our waiter was great.

“Great dinner at Lowell's!”
Reviewed June 10, 2013

Great food, good service, good wines - we thoroughly enjoyed our dinner at Lowell's. The restaurant is pretty open, so an intimate dining experience can be a challenge given how busy they are for dinner, but the great menu which focuses on ingredients from the NorthWest more than compensates for any lack of intimacy. Everything we sampled, from the salmon and steaks, to the lamb chops was exquisitely prepared. The atmosphere is relaxed, but this restaurant would certainly be a great place to go to celebrate a special occasion. The service was very good, with our waiter being very attentive to our needs throughout the evening. We look forward to our next visit.

“Steak? Yes, please!”
Reviewed May 17, 2013

I admit to being a big fan of Ruth's Chris and a ribeye in general. But Russell's has a beautiful filet and a huge NY Strip that will make you happy to be a carnivore!

Also tried their rack of lamb, risotto and scallops during one of our many visits. All very good.

This place delivers on its promise. Nice wine selection and knowledgeable staff to help you with your selections.

Definitely is THE place to dine in the Bothell area. Not cheap, but you get what you pay for.

Did I mention that the Filet and Strip were prime cuts!? There IS a difference.

Asked for Lara whenever we got a chance. But all of the staff were great.

“Still wonderful!”
Reviewed April 21, 2013

To quitely celebrate our 30th wedding annniversary, we visited Russells. I still like that you can bring in your own bottle of Washington wine which we did. The selection for appetizers, salad and entrees were superb. Wait staff gave just enough attention. I did feel a bit rushed (salad came very quickly as we hadn't finished with the appetiizer) but all and all, a very nice evening.
