Russell's Steaks, Chops, and More
satisfyingly excellantAt 70 years old this meal rates as one of the three top meals that I've ever eaten at a restaurant. This meal set my wife and I for an enjoyable evening at Shea's theater watching "Jersey Boys".5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMYou owe it to yourself!From walking into the lobby, I was sincerely impressed! It was a wonderful evening and certainly money well spent. I highly recommend the server Christopher, who himself was conscience of our needs, but never bothersome, and extremely knowledgable. My dinner of surf and turf was outstanding. Thank you for a most memborable evening, helping my husband and I celebrate 31 years of marriage!5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMThe best ever!Russell's steaks, chops and more was the best. The ambience was fabulous - an understated elegance. The wait staff was very tentative. The food was absolutely phenomenal. The couldn't do enough for us and made us all feel very special at the table. I wish to thank them all for the perfect evening for an 80th birthday party. I can not wait to come back.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful memories!My husband and I just celebrated our 41st wedding anniversary with a superb dinner at RUSSELL'S! 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.

This is a must if in Western New York.5/6/2013 12:00:00 AM4 Out of 5 starsWe have been here before and will come again. We requested a booth it was our anniversary and we did not recieve one. We did however recieve a cozy corner table for two. My lamb was not as tender as I hoped but very delicious. My husband had the huge bone in ribeye and that was perfect. I had a crab fondue which was amazing. Overall it was fantastic and will go again.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and serviceSteak was perfect. Service was extremely responsive. Truly enjoyed the experience - It was a nice treat to have Russell walk us to our table.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMHappy 25th Anniversary dinnerThe meal was very great as well as the service. I particularly enjoyed the desserts on the menu. One thing I disliked was having my room across the banquet hall or meeting room. There was a party going on and the clanking of dishes was quite annoying.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTotally Outstanding Food / ServiceWe spent two nights at Russell's and had two fantastic dinners. My wife is usually the first one finished
her meal but the French onion soup with extra cheese, and two servings of the delicious bread
then the 14 ounce new York strip steak, just the way she likes it, did her in!! She couldn't finish
the last morsel. We had Mike one night and Andrew the second night as our server. They
both had a good sense of humor, and did everything to make our dinner totally enjoyable.
The food is always high quality and we had the 3 for $39 dinner special, Order the side order lobster
Mac and Cheese, you won't regret it. Tax and Tip all in was around $100. well worth it can't wait until
we return. Oh yes the desserts are to die for.....5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDee-lish!We celebrated our 34th wedding anniversary by dining at your fine restaurant. The food was fabulous as was the wine and service. It was also nice to chat with Mr. Salvatore, who is always charming & customer focused.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMFrom recommendations I expectedFrom recommendations I expected to receive good service and great food. The actual experience totally exceed our group's expectations. Server was attentive, courteous and professional. The food was the best steak and sides ever enjoyed - prepared and presented perfectly Russel's has set the standard for dining excellence and I thank them for being part of a wonderful evening.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding meal!My boyfriend and I attended Russel's for dinner on Friday for his birthday and the food was outstanding! We both love to go out to eat and have been to many restaurants before. The steak was the best steak I've ever had in my life! Our favorite part of the restaurant is the bar. So modern and sleek. Love the ambiance! The only negative critique that we had was that we were in a back room for dinner. We both would have loved the main dining room next to one of the wall fireplaces. We sat there before for Valentine's Day and it was perfect! Can't wait to come back again! Thank you for a wonderful evening!5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMRussels is top notch!We spent our 15th wedding anniversary at Russels steak house, and what a wonderful dinner we had. The ambiance was fabulous and really set the mood. Our waiters where helpful and courteous. We will definitely be going back soon and bringing friends with us to enjoy a great meal! Thanks Russels for making our special day memorable.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, as always.Russell is truly a professional restaurateur. Love the ambiance and decor too.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat night outWe recently celebrated our 12th anniversary and it was a wonderful night out. Our service was absolutely fantastic. The food was second to none. We will absolutely return.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMA Dining ExperienceRussell Salvatore continues to overshadow any dining establishment in the area. There are numerous outstanding eating establishments, in western New York, but none that compare in the total package. Russell's does not serve meals, it delivers
experiences. From being greeted by Mr. Salvatore to being seated and served by an interested staff, nothing is spared. Then, there is the meal. The food is prepared with only the best in steak and seafood, completely to your liking and served to you like a "king or queen" would expect. Whether your visit is a one time experience or you return on a regular basis, each time is just perfect.
There are just not enough superlatives.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMUnbelievable Steak!The steak was excellent! Cooked perfectly, juicy and so tender! We are still talking about it days later! Can't wait to go back. This restaurant is first class due to the meticulous management of Russell Savatore.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat dinner!Wonderful, delicious dinner with excellent service! I always look forward to the great experience of dining at Russell's, and this exceeded my expectations as always! Mr. Salvatore always does a wonderful job with his restaurants!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMBest in BuffaloWe were celebrating a birthday and this choice for a restaurant couldn't have been better! The service was exceptional and food was spectacular. We purchased the dine and stay package and it was fabulous. We had a NY Strip Steak that was cooked to perfection and a Pork Chop that was so flavorful and tender you almost didn't need a knife. The room was very spacious (we rented the Royal Suite) and the fireplace was an added surprise. The celebration concluded with a breakfast buffet the next morning which offered something for everyone. The only disappointment of the entire stay was the bed. I would've expected the bedding to be a little more plush for the hotel but that is a personal preference. We can't wait to do it all again!4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMRussell's remains our favoriteRussell's remains our favorite restaurant in WNY. Mr. Salvatore knows how to run an fine dining establishment and it shows from the moment we checked in to the moment we left. Food, service, and setting are all first rate.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOrdered a strip steak mediumOrdered a strip steak medium well and it was undercooked.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMFood & service was fabulous.Food & service was fabulous.

Will go back again very soon.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful nightWe had a great time during our stay at Russells. i had made a mistake and booked the Royal Suite which was way too big for just my husband and I but the room was very nice. During dinner CJ (Christopher) was a wonderful server. Actually anyone who came to the table was polite and courteous. CJ suggested a wine for my husband and it was very nice. He gave us the specials and put some of his personalit into it. He did not push us to order anything specific. I had requested a table with a fire place behind us as we were celebrating my husbands birthday and they did seat us at a wonderful table with the fireplace behind us. CJ even put a birthday candle in my husbands desert! The whole evening was very nice!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time at Russell's andFirst time at Russell's and the service and food was great!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is the second trip toThis is the second trip to Russell's.

The service was very good and you never felt like you were bein pushed at all. The petit filet was cooked perfectly and the creme brulee for dessert was just the right portion size with the different flavors.
A unique dining experience!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMWe enjoyed our anniversaryWe enjoyed our anniversary dinner but were slightly taken aback on a few issues. Our seat had crumbs on it...was a little worried about staining our nice clothes. We also had a reservation and were suprised to be handed a buzzer to wait for a table...we expect that from Friday's but not here. The time we waited was nominal, I think the Miss that took our names could have remembered our faces if she had actually looked at us for more than 5 seconds therefore eliminating the need for the buzzer. We are easy going so that really had no effect on our evening meal. The server was courteous and attentive. The food, as usual, was phenomenal. We were pleasantly surprised when another server had remembered us from a previous visit. Excellent!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely, always love goingAbsolutely, always love going here!My favorite is the lobster bisque and the creme brulee!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I enjoyed dinnerMy husband and I enjoyed dinner for our anniversary this past Saturday. The bartender and waiter were friendly and professional.......the crablegs out of this world!!!! Will return
