  • "We love Russel's! We plan an over night stay as well at the hotel!"
    Dined on 7/8/2014
  • "We came here to celebrate our three year Anniversary. The restaurant was very busy for a Tuesday evening, however we were seated right away thanks to our reservations. The food was amazing, as usual. We stayed in one of the rooms on our wedding night and had dinner, it brought back great memories to come here again."

  • "My wife and I come here every year for our anniversary as well as occasionally with friends. Service, food, an atmosphere is the BEST in Buffalo. We can carry on a conversation without yelling which is a treat today."

  • "I recently took my girlfriend to Russell's for an overnight stay with dinner package. We ordered from the dinner for 2 menu and left full and satisfied with every aspect of the meal. Our table was romantic and quiet. We enjoyed our private conversation without interruption. The service was phenomenal. Never an empty glass, always a course arriving and a bright face to be sure that we were never in need of anything. We highly recommend Russell's!"

  • "From start to finish, a fantastic meal. Appetizer of spinach and sausage bread was delicious, main course of filet mignon outstanding, and the dessert of banana pudding and peanut butter pie was heavenly. Extensive wine list and an impressive bourbon list also. Great service, friendly and knowledgeable. Definitely will dine here again."

  • "My wife and I were recently at Salvatore's for our third time and similarly to past trips it was excellent all around. Coming from the Niagara Peninsula (St. Catharines) we look forward to a night out at Salvatore's. The food and service at Russell's are both great and I would highly recommend both the hotel and restaurant to anyone. It is also very close to the Walden Galleria Mall and other stores along Transit Road for shopping. Good times all around."

  • "Great food, service and the total experience was fabulous."
    Dined on 6/27/2014
  • "Can't say more. The key is to stick with the traditional meals. All the meat cuts are good and the sides are terrific. If I had to be critical, it would be that the dessert choices are fairly mundane, athough still very good. I would definately get a pastry chef in there if I were Russell. A good souffle wouldn't be bad!"

  • "My fiance and myself had a great time at your Restaurant. We were there for our anniversary and would love to come back. The food, service and setting were all fantastic. It was expensive but worth it for the experience we had."

  • "This was my first visit to Russell's. What an unbelievable experience; five stars all the way! We were greeted and seated by Mr. Salavatore himself. The wine list was quite diverse and our waiter was very knowledgeable in his recommendations for pairing. Our steaks were cooked to perfection and were excellent cuts of meat. To finish, dessert was decadent. I am one of those picky diners that seem to find something wrong with every place. I couldn't find a single thing to be critical about here. If you haven't had the pleasure of visiting this Buffalo gem, I highly recommend it. Be sure to make a reservation, and dress to impress as it is a very classy establishment."
    Dined on 6/16/2014
  • "This was the first time we ate at Russell's. It won't be the last. Everything was outstanding. Our waiter Andy and his assistant were attentive to details, refilling water glasses and coffee cups, but never being intrusive. A basket of breads and a selection of spreads were brought to the table quickly. We ordered the dinner for two. I had sent a note with the reservation request that it was my companion's birthday and the dessert came out with a candle in it. We had the salmon and it was cooked and seasoned to perfection. Some reviews have mentioned that the dinner for two are smaller portions. If they are, I don't know if I would order off the regular menu. We couldn't finish our dinners and took home enough for lunch the following day."

  • " My sister forwarded this to me and I felt compelled to respond for the four of us. We have dined at Russell's many times. This was the first time it did not meet our expectations. After being seated we waited a VERY long time with no menus, no drink order being taken, no napkins. When our waiter finally arrived, as he handed us menus he asked if any of us would be ordering the dinners for two (????). We all looked up with incredulity and in unison said we did not know. We were told we could make side substitutions. Only as food arrived were we told of a $3 charge. To that my sister noted her $3 asparagus consisted of 3 spears! ( more were then brought). People in jeans, screaming kids nearby & much more, but no room left :-("

  • "Food was excellent, worth the price and more. The server was the best I ever had. The owner was personally bringing out birthday desserts to people who were celebrating."

  • "From the minute you walk into The Grand Hotel you know this is no ordinary hotel. The welcome is warm and genuine and the staff is incredibly efficient. My wife and I have been staying at the Grand on our wedding anniversary for the last several years and this time we were upgraded to a Royal Suite. The regular rooms are excellent and we have always been very satisfied. The complimentary upgrade to a suite, however, was a thoughtful gesture that pleased us immensely. The food in the hotel's restaurant is outstanding and reasonably priced and the staff there are the best and most professional we have every experienced. From front desk, to housekeeping to restaurant, the staff works hard to ensure your stay in unforgettable."

  • "We finally ventured to Russell's and long overdue. We will be back! The atmosphere was perfect for an anniversary, we went on a Tuesday and were even seated in a nice secluded spot. The food was spot on! Everything from the salads to entrees were absolutely incredible. Meats cooked to perfection, delicious side dishes and generously perfect portions. They have a beautiful wine list where we found a wonderful champagne (this is a feat as my husband is not a big champagne person). Dessert is a must..save room, even to share something! We had the most exquisite first anniversary and can't say thank you enough. The staff especially, the service is top notch. We will recommend Russell's to everyone, Russell sets standards and lives up to them."

  • "Everything was just perfect, as always. Greeted by Mr. Salvatore himself, was immediately seated and within a minute a very pleasant young man came over with water telling us our server would be right over. The service is top notch as is the food, this was our 4th time there and we will continue to go back. The only word that describes each visit we PERFECTION!!"

  • "Outstanding!!! That is all that I have to say. This was absolutely exceptional. Everything was incredible. The oysters were fantastic as well as the steak and seafood. I have not been in a while but this is going to turn into a staple for me. I do not think that I have ever had a better steak in Buffalo or elsewhere for that matter. When we walked in we were great by Russel himself and he was so welcoming and wonderful. "

  • "Russ Salvatore continues to be a force in the WNY restaurant scene. The dinner for two with Steak a la Russell as the entree was outstanding! Paired with a nice, not-to-pricey glass of red wine, a Caesar salad (I used to like it better when Russ prepared it table side) and the smoothest smashed red potatoes I've ever had, it was a terrific meal. I don't think you can find a better value for a gourmet meal in the area...Way to go Russ! "
