Online reservations at Green Russell can only be made directly on their website.
One night a month, my husband and I, plan a night/day for one another, which we call date night. I had heard about Green Russell from a friend and thought it would be nice. It was better then nice, it was a wonderful four hour date night!! The food was delicious and the drinks were wonderful. But, it was atmosphere that I truly enjoyed as did he. The Green Russell is tucked away, where you could be in a different time or place. Folks are encouraged to dress up and to refrain from using cell phones, and to speak intimately. The decor was comfortable and lent itself to having a romantic evening. We will be returning, especially now that they don't require reservations.
Green Russell has an amazing list of cocktails. Don't be afraid to try anything on the list. I also highly recommend the Loaded Chips. They feed three or four people, and are delicious.
We enjoyed the happy hour specials and loved the attentive service of our waiter.
Great drinks, great atmosphere. Easy to get in on weekend before 7pm. Pierogi was incredible. So were the brisket sliders. Caramel apple pie was perfect. The fine people at Visit Denver gave this to us as a reco. Brilliant.
We were greeted and given water right away by the bar back. The bar tender came over a minute later and asked if we had any questions about the menu and that he'd be back to take our order. We were ready a couple minutes later. We sat there and waited for TWENTY MINUTES before he returned to take our order. We were sitting in the cocktail seats across from the bar, in full view. I counted six parties, including my husband and I, of 2-4 people. The place was pretty dead. There were four people behind the bar. We were just about to get up and leave when he finally came back (after we politely stared him down) and apologized, saying he thought someone else was taking care of us....(??) Bad communication. Bad service. Good drinks though.
I always find the bartenders extremely approachable and knowledgeable at Green Russell. I provide them an example of a drink I enjoy and they always deliver the best cocktail ever. I have yet to order anything off of the drink Menu. This is not the place to go for a cheap drink or to hook up. If you want a bar that is not crowded and serves great cocktails, this is the place. They also serve Wednesday's Pies, which are amazing. Definitely make reservations!
Great ambience however, the bartender was very rude and condescending. All other waitstaff were great
I really like Green Russell; it's my second time going and I would go again. The "Pie Shop" entrance adds to the whole feel; they spare no detail, from the bartenders' outfits to the block of ice, you get the entire 1920s vibe!
We would go back for the drinks and the ambience!! The food was just so-so.
We really enjoyed the atmosphere and decor of Green Russell. Drinks were fresh and delicious.
