Birthday dinner was so good...My wife and I went to Russell's for my birthday, because my name is Russell, and I love smoked food. It was so good that we went back again for our anniversary. We were very pleased with both the service and the food. Everything on the table was scratch made and amazing. Flavors, combinations, textures, smells, and appearance were all spot on. I have difficulty enjoying dining out after going to culinary school and knowing how to do restaurant service/food the right way. Russell's was amazingly accurate with everything, from the greeting as we walked in to the gratitude as we left. Both the manager and the Exec Chef came by our table to say hello and ensure that we were satisfied with everything, very rare these days.5/9/2013 12:00:00 AMglad we decided to finally comefood - beyond words amazing. i eat slow and generally end up taking at least half my food home and on that note i ordered the combo plate, when it showed up i expected to take most of it home. i was unable to leave more then the bones on the plate. well done.
atmosphere - elegant and relaxed feel, with a very unique style for a steakhouse. which makes since as it is also a speak easy. i was very pleased.
service - our server was a very nice and friendly gentleman. he was there for anything we needed and definitly waiting on us as the term states. my only drawback is that we could tell that we were one of the only tables our server had as he was up to our table every few minutes. a little is nice but every few minutes is too much.5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMHonest BBQ with a fun ambianceRussell's is a find in LoDo. Who'd guess you could find restaurant-smoked food in the middle of all these restaurants? We enjoyed the happy hour specials as well as multiple entrees. The restaurant has utilized an unusual space below grade with an interesting layout in the space. The homemade pie and the smoked meats were great with interesting sides. We'll be back!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food, very good service.Great food, very good service. its all around very godd place to dine4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFor the BBQ loverWe had the sampler, and everything was wonderful.
