I have been at Russell's many times and they never disappoint. The ambiance is unique, can get a bit noisy but it adds to experience without being distracting. The menu is simple and elegant, with choices that will please anyone. The wine list is great, and I have found many great wine that will not make you go broke. They also wave the corkage fee if you take in a WA State wine. My favorite are the scallops entree and the pork chop.

Our belated Valentines dinner was a disappointment. While the service at Russell's was friendly and attentive, the food was only average. The kitchen would benefit from understanding that complexity of flavor trumps quantity of sauces used. The ravioli was smothered in a tomato-based sauce that was lacking in subtle spicing nuance. Other menu choices weren't up to the quality we expected for the price we paid.

very helpful staff and they did a great job of keeping me from knowing about the party up until I walked into the room

Russells is a local hotspot for a really well crafted meal. The kitchen cares and it shows. Recipes on the simpler side, few trendy idiotic ingredients and 'fusions'. Just good well prepared food. Service is usually very good. Lots of good seating and they are flexible if rearranging is needed. Only a $10 corkage fee so the terrific local Woodinville wines we take provide a good value.

The food preparation here is excellent. The rating would be higher but the location is rather out of the way. The restaurant is very well appointed and clean.
The servers were cordial and not in your face.
The food was better than the high end restaurants that are located in downtown Seattle. Those restaurants have great reputations and when people get to know this one, they'll be raving about it more than those.
