  • "Celebrated anniversary here again because the menu offerings are great; service is 1st class and atmosphere is perfect."
    Dined on 8/25/2014
  • "The service was fantastic. Our server, Gary, was personable, professional, efficient and charming! We will ask for him again. The food was exquisite, as I expected it would be. I just wish I would have saved room for dessert. Next time :)"

  • "We returned to Russell's for my annual birthday celebration and once again experienced an outstanding evening. We had specifically requested Andrew as our server and, as always, he continues to impress with his exemplary service -- smooth, knowledgeable, professional, attentive and cordial. The well-trained staff works with panache throughout the elegant service. The meals are upscale, the presentations artful. With a critical yet discerning eye towards detail in every aspect of service, Russell's continues to be the #1 destination for "foodies" in Western New York."

  • "Food was outstanding as was Andrew our waiter! We will be back."

  • "Excellent dining experience. From the front desk to the cooks in the kitchen. Service was great. Food and drinks Outstanding. I could not leave a morsel on my plate. Well worth the price. Recommended this place to many people already. I will be dining there again when I am in the Buffalo area."

  • "Seated promptly. The establishment is outstanding. Wait staff is superb. Food was very good, one small glitch was taken care of by the waiter. The evening was remarkable."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The meal was great, the only thing that bothered me was the waiter seemed to be rushing us ! Asking us if we want to take our dessert home ? Was he trying to get the table ready for his next seating ?"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "The entire experience was great. As younger guests we were worried thatour age would be taken advantage of. We were pleasantly surprised! Everyone did their absolute best to make us feel welcome. However, the highlight of the night was Russell himself. When he saw my date and i waiting off to the side for our table (we were not old enough to enjoy the bar) he immediatley came over and got us a table."

  • "My husband and I were there for our first time and were made to feel comfortable and welcome. Nick was our waiter and he was entertaining and pro-active in all aspects. From the moment we walked in to the time we left. The restaurant is gorgeous and the coffee and dessert were a perfect highlight to end our evening with. Food was great! We highly recommend the Lobster Mac & Cheese. I also highly recommend the Three Layer Sour Cream Cheesecake. What a delight! We certainly were honored to be Russell's guests this evening! Thank you!!! And to be quite honest, I read some of the reviews before going and with the service and all of the extras, pricing is reasonable, especially when Russell's is really in a league of its own!"

  • "Food was great except for the crab cakes. They had a fishy taste. The steaks, chops, chicken and deserts were great though."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "We went to dinner and it was very busy for a Wednesday night. Chopped salads were great, the banana peppers were displayed beautifully with delicious shredded vegetables. It was a very long wait from our salads until we received our entrees, which were barely warm. The filet for both of us was very dry, even though we both ordered it medium. My son said his porterhouse was good, but barely warm. Our waiter stopped about 20 seconds after getting our food then by the time he came back again we just wanted the bill. Previous times the food has been amazing so it was a big disappointment. I am sure since it was so busy that was part of it, however the meal came to $300, next time we are thinking of spending that on a meal it won't be here."

  • "I was very pleased with food, service & ambience. My wife said was the best dinning experience she has ever had."
    Dined on 8/11/2014
  • "My first time dining at Russell's and it was fantastic. Food selection and portions were great. Never once felt like I was looking for a server as they we always there and attentive. Very nicely done and food prices are reasonable."

  • "Just wanted to thank you for an amazing meal and experience we had at Russell's. Our waiter Bob was great, my Girlfriend and I had an amazing bottle of wine(red) and our steaks were cooked perfectly."

  • "We decided come here for our anniversary after hearing friends speak so highly. It was convenient upon registration to know that the dining certificate was part of the package. It was an incentive. Russell's has set the bar high when it comes to standards of service, hospitality and food quality. Having Mr. Salvatore greet us at the door tells you that he cares the same for everyone that visits Russell's. We thoroughly enjoyed a steak and a lamb dinner. It was the best we've ever tasted. Keep setting new standards Mr. Salvatore. You could teach the food industry so much. And what a surprise it was to see our name in lights celebrating our anniversary!"

  • "My wife & I came up from Cassadaga for our 17th. anniversary & totally loved it. Only one thing could've made the experience better is if we could've gotten a room. You were totally booked & now we see why."

  • "This was our 2nd time there. This time we went for my husband's 60th birthday. The food is delicious you will walk away very satisfied. Two years ago we had a waiter named Bob and we were lucky enough to have him this time. He is very professional but likes to throw a joke in there every once in awhile. We were even honoured to talk with Russell for a few seconds. He is a very gentle man. The selection on the menu has enough on it to satisfy anyone. My husband had Russell's cut filet and I had the salmon with dill sauce and they were cooked perfectly. We are looking forward to returning to Russell's."

  • "Went for first time for 27th wedding anniversary. Wait staff was outstanding and very friendly and attentive! Food was some of the best we've had. Filet mignon tender tender tender! Au gratin onion soup was awesome!! We cleaned our plates and had no room for dessert, so we took it to go. Sorry to say, but we were very disappointed with the desserts. PB pie and strawberry bliss...we didn't even finish them all. Desserts need to be on par with the rest of the meal...easily fixed. We will definitely be back!!!!"
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "I've discovered that when comes to a good steak dinner, you get what you pay for. Though Russell's is more expensive than your average restaurant, the food and service are exemplary. My husband and I were in town for our honeymoon and was the perfect restaurant for a romantic dinner."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "The food and service here are absolutely amazing! The environment is wonderful too. Try the Steak a la Russell and the lobster mac and cheese. You won't be disappointed!"

  • "The food was delicious!! However, I really do miss the giant cookie dessert. I was looking forward to getting that for dessert but it was off the menu. Our waiter Chris S. Was fantastic! Polite, friendly, knew his stuff, kept checking up on us, etc. phenomenal waiter!"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "I took my girlfriend out for her birthday, and the food, service, ambiance, and mood were perfect. To cap off an excellent night, the waiter provided a discrete "Happy Birthday" touch to her dessert, which was appreciated. I cannot remember a time when I was treated so well by anyone. I also cannot remember a time when I had such an excellent meal. The experience was a value at any price. I will be back!"

  • "Always excellent dinner and also stayed at the hotel; it was perfect."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "We have dined at Russell's numerous times over the past many years. Our most recent experience on August 4th, was far above one's expectations of a dining experience. It was an anniversary celebration for my husband and myself that will not be forgotten. It was filled with unexpected and most enjoyable surprises. The meal was outstanding, as well as the service. Even our table was in a most perfect, felt to be private and most comfortable place. Russell's is truly a top of the line restaurant. It is #1. A class act."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "The service was the best I'd ever experienced. Our server was extremely professional but also personable. The steakhouse has a separate vegetarian menu, and my daughter ordered the pasta primavera off that."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "This is a perfect restaurant for getting together with friends or family or just a special dinner for two. Excellent quality of food, terrific ambience and great service. We have dined here many times before and always look forward to returning."

  • "The service was exceptional and the food delicious in every way."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Dinner was delicous. The steak you could cut with a butter knife. Howeer this is the 6th time we have gone to Russell's and made reservations months in advance and we always get put in a small back room. It would be nice to sit in the main dinning room once in awhile and feel part of the atmosphere."

  • "Russell's has no shortage of help as there were more than adequate amount of personnel in the dining area. I am just surprised it took the staff TEN MINUTES TO GET OUR DRINK ORDER. Other people that were sat after us got there drink order almost immediately. Once we did get a server, she was wonderful, knowledgeable, attended to every need in a timely manner. But those first ten minutes left a bad taste in my mouth. I regret not trying the steaks without any special sauce. The sauce was bit much and I should have judged the steak rub on its own merit. Dessert (Banana pudding) was excellent."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Every time I go to Russell's they do not disappoint. Anything I've ordered there's cooked to perfection and the service is just right. They are there when you need them, but not overly attentive. Russell's is a great place to celebrate any special occasion in your life."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "We always choose Russell's for special occasions because we know that we can count on great food and service. They did not disappoint."

  • "Went on a Tuesday when there's a special at the bar. It gets so crowded, they set up tables in the foyer to accommodate everyone. It's pretty wild. But the regular dining area is quiet/calm. Four of us enjoyed the meal and the service. No problems. Quite the opposite. Terrific meals."
    Dined on 7/29/2014
  • "We booked an overnight stay which included a three course meal at Russell's and breakfast. One of the all time best deals. Great upgraded room, wonderful dinner and breakfast. Russell greeted us a we came in the restaurant and the meal and service were great and wine reasonable. Jim and Carmel Richards, Georgetown, Ontario"
