The decor is unusual and fascinating. Enjoyed the small dining room experience within a large restaurant. Genuine Caesar salad. Beautiful presentation of outstanding food. We had steak ala Russell - a gloriously tender and juicy filet mignon, prepared perfectly as ordered and topped with savory mushrooms. The dessert menu had a wide variety of choices and we were extremely pleased with the cannoli served with a scoop of vanilla ice cream and smothered with bananas Foster.
The wait staff was pleasant and attentive without being intrusive. A very lovely and relaxing evening and an amazingly delectable meal.6/2/2013 12:00:00 AMGood for Special OccasionService and ambience are absolutely outstanding! The food unfortunately was a little better the last time I visited (my steak was not seasoned and was burnt). It was much busier this time, therefore that may have had an impact. Prices are quite high, therefore my husband and I only frequented on special occasions and after the subpar food this time I don't know necessarily that we will be back in the future.6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent cant wait to go backFirst time here.

He had a great sense of humor and he was a great waiter, never leaving anything to be asked for. We both had a filet and we could have cut it with a butter knife, it was so tender. All in all, I had a lovely birthday dinner!!!5/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding, as alwaysKudos to Russ Salvatore and his staff for providing an outstanding dining experience for our family.

I highly recommend ordering from the dinner for two section of the menu.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter Beef in BuffaloCharming and elegant dining with Russell himself greeting every patron upon arrival. The steaks and asparagus were done to perfection. Although the servers mixed-up our take-home containers, when the other couple called to complain after arriving home, the manager was very gracious and telephoned us to apologize and slipped a gratis coupon in the mail to compensate. We thought that was a class act.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMNice Unexpectant SurpriseLove the modern and chic look of the restaurant, staff where on their feet and did not hesitate to fix any expectation which didn't reach 100%. The Filet Mignon was thoroughly succulent and the Brushetta to die for!5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic food and superior serviceOn May 25th we returned to Russell's to celebrate our wedding anniversary. Upon entering, we were warmly greeted by both Mark and Robert and shown to our table. Next, our server Andrew introduced himself and recited the specials. For the rest of the evening, we were truly amazed at the outstanding service we received. It was flawless, strong and prompt. No detail was too small, no request a bother. I must also commend our busser Eric, who worked closely with Andrew to provide tag-team service that was as seemless as a well-choreographed dance. Both Andrew and Eric were enthusiastic, personable, professional and courteous, attentive without being intrusive. You could tell that they both really enjoyed their work and were eager-to-please.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday and Retirement DinnerI selected Russells for both my 60th birthday and a retirement dinner for my friend. The personnel are so pleasant and helpful and what is also nice is that you can reserve on line. The atmosphere is wonderful. Our waitress was very pleasant and helpful. The food is out of this world. I would definitely recommended Russells to anyone that wants to experience a wonderful dinning experience.5/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprisedWhen you first walk into Russell's the feeling is instant relaxation and impeccable taste.

We are so glad we went there and will definately go again.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMA Dining experience in Westerrn NYIf you are looking for a dining experience that is equal to or surpasses a fine restaurant in upper Manhattan, look no further. Russell Salvatore has created such right here in Western New York. The Steak Ala Russell is just one example of the fine dining experience created for you. The hotel is yet another experience that is focused on your comfort and relaxation. Don't forget the hot breakfast bar in the morning, what a nice touch as you continue on with your travel.
This is our third visit in the past two years, never disappointed! A great get-a-way, and not far from our home.5/23/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat PlaceI went here with my mother and grandmother. The food was very good, I had salmon and tried the steak which both tasted awesome. The prices are pretty high but if you're going somewhere with a dress code where reservations are required then you can all but assume it's going to be expensive. Fortunately I was passing through my home town of Amherst and this was my mom's treat. The Russell Salvatore reputation is well-noted in the area and this establishment lives up to the great name that he has made and maintained since well before I was born.5/22/2013 12:00:00 AMLOVE IT!Wonderful food! Wonderful Service! We love Russells it is always our first choice for special occasions!5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Food. Highly RecommendWe ate here for our 7th anniversary. We have never eaten there before but heard great things. The entire experience was amazing. Our Service was fantastic (Thanks Chris J). The food was phenomenal. You definitely get what you pay for, the higher prices are reflected in the food and the service and it wasn't even really that expensive. I had the Rack of Lamb and my wife had the petite Filet. They were both cooked to perfection and absolutely delicious. We started with the Calamari and the stuffed Banana Peppers which were also great. We highly recommend Russel's for dinner.5/20/2013 12:00:00 AMBest steak in New York2nd trip to Russell's. Food was just as good if not better than our 1st trip.

Upon entering Russel's Steaks, Chops and More we were greeted at the door by Russel Salvatore himself. We were seated at a very elegant and relaxing booth which had us sitting next to each other over looking the rest of the dining room. The food was incredible. We have both had steak and lobster before but this time it was different. We both left full and extremely satisfied. I highly recommend this restaurant to any couple or family looking to celebrate or just for a nice evening out. I know we will definitely be returning in the near future.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMJust GreatOur party of five had dinner at your restaurant to celebrate our daughters graduation from law school.

On Christmas Eve in 1971, I received my diamond engagement ring during a dinner at Salvatore's. Over the years we always chose that restaurant for special occasions. The food is always phenomenal and the service is outstanding. And we would always be so pleased when Russell stopped by our table to inquire about our meal & experience there! Russell's has a special place in our memories and hearts.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Mothers' DayMy family had a wonderful Mothers' Day dinner at Russel's, Mr. Russel greeted us personally and said good-bye to our party as we left which I thought made our visit personal. Our waiter was attentive, charming and witty which is refreshing in this day where most customer service is lacking significantly. Food was out of this world: everything from the appetizers through the main entrée to desert. Not to mention even the cocktails and coffee.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful evening of diningGreat food - great evening - no complaints at all.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always, the food, staffAs always, the food, staff and ambiance were great!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent!Our water glasses were never less than 1/2 full.
