    They get just about everything right. The staff is courteous and friendly, very fast service for a steakhouse. Your courses are served at well timed intervals, so you aren't wondering if they forgot about you. The quality of the food is above average and the atmosphere is good.

    Dined on 8/24/2014
    My husband and I went to Russell's for our one year anniversary. The ambiance was extraordinary, the food was delicious and the wait staff was great. Our only complaint is that the gentlemen that came to our table in-between our waiter to fill our water and clear our plates, seemed to be there every 5 minutes our so. It was difficult holding a personal conversation with so many interruptions. There is really no need to fill our water after every sip.

    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.

    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 ?

    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!

    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.

    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!

    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!!!!

    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!

    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.

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.
