    Our server Clint was amazing. He was attentive, funny and very kind. The other staff members who came to the table were also attentive and kept plates cleared and waters filled. Had a great dessert cake from the fresh bakery as well. Highly recommend!

    We were really looking forward to our first time at Russell’s, having read good reviews on their website. It started out nice w/ drinks at the bar & an appetizer while waiting on our table. The baked ricotta appetizer & cocktails were very good. We looked over the menu at the bar & decided what we were going to order. Unfortunately, after we were seated at our table the waiter came over to greet us and then preceded to tell us that 5 of the 8 entrees listed were no longer available(needless to say our picks were not available). We were very surprised to hear this since it was only a little after 7:00 on a Saturday night. How does a restaurant run out of more than half of their menu on a Saturday night? We were so disappointed and also the 3 entrees that were still available did not sound appealing to us. So, we decided to leave and go somewhere else. It was not the date night that we were planning on…so very disappointed.

    Clint, our server, was amazing. As always, Russell’s was a great experience. Food was delicious, service was fabulous. This is one of our favorite spots, we never feel rushed like other places that are just trying to turn tables. Love it here. Filet was perfectly cooked and my husband loved the lobster pot pie. Can’t wait to come back.

    We had such a great experience at Russell’s on Macklind for their Valentines Day dinner! We were lucky to get a reservation since they hook up fast, for 8pm and we’re so glad we went! The ambience made for an ideal dinner date with the lights down low, yet enough candles and other lighting to still be able to see the menu. We got the crab cake, which was phenomenally tasting, as well as the Braised Short Rib that fell apart so smoothly, and the Lobster Pot Pie that I can’t wait to order again! Thanks for making this an amazing dinner date

    Food is always excellent at RonM. Service is almost always just as good. Their wine selection is OK, not great, so you may want to take a bottle and pay the corking fee. Tables are pretty close together so if it is crowded (most of the time) it will be a bit loud for a more intimate dinner with your honey. If the weather is good definitely get a table outside! Deserts are some of the best in town!

    We had been for brunch and lunch but never for dinner - we sat upstairs for dinner. It was quiet and the most enjoyable meal I'd had out in along time. Not too busy so we could hear each other talking. The food was amazing. The waiter comped a dessert of carrot cake - it was tasty but definitely overcooked, maybe that's why he offered it.

    My friends and I thoroughly enjoyed our brunch this past Sunday. The biscuits were perfect as always. I had the hash special, and my friends both ordered the crab cake sandwich special. We were all more than happy with our meals. Maggie, Bill, & Kevin were all wonderful and gave top notch service. Per usual, Faron was actively helping his team and engaging with guests. Russell’s is truly a gem of a restaurant and bakery. I think it’s important to note that no one encouraged me to write this review. My comments are 100% authentic based on my experience(s).

    My husband calls Russell's a "gem" and it is. The food is very good. The wine list is very limited but includes carefully chosen very good affordable wines. My husband had a cold brew coffee martini that was tasty. Different than an espresso martini and not sweet. The servings are generous, and we always end up bringing leftovers home. For instance, the Caesar salad should be shared. We always forget. The only thing we would change is that the entrees came before we finished our soup and salad, but by then we were ready to take them home. They are very accommodating with this. The staff is very pleasant.

    We had a great time here, it was a really sweet atmosphere, romantic, our server was great and had good recommendations. Our cocktails were very yummy! The food was good… I can’t say anything crazy (good or bad) about it but I would like to go back to try other things! Also the cake was so hard to choose from because all the flavors sounded so yummy, but the Port wine chocolate cake we got was very delicious. Can’t wait to go back and try again!

    Russell's on Mackling never disappoints. Everything we ate was delicious. The restaurant was very crowded for lunch but our food and drinks weren't delayed at all. We had Kitchen Sink Salad, B.L.A.T.E., The Cuban and. Slice of Port Wine chocolate cake at this visit. Highly recommend Russell's for brunch, lunch and dinner.

    It is always an outstanding meal and service at Russell’s. It was our first time upstairs and it was quiet and cozy - the latter the most important with -5 F outside! Our family was in from out of town & greatly enjoyed the giant cinnamon roll, although we agree that it takes 6 people to be able to finish it. This is my favorite brunch in St. Louis but you definitely need to plan ahead at least two weeks as it fills up fast!

    When it comes to brunch, this place delivers! They are a bakery so their bread, cakes, and pastries are top notch. We got the French toast with lemon curd and the egg grilled cheese and some bacon. Everything was so delicious. Bread perfect, little fruit cups on the side. Lattes were phenomenal. We also got a cinnamon roll to share and a lemon popover to take home. Everything hit the spot. Service and ambience were extremely good. Highly recommend if you want a good meal, presented well, great service, and beautiful cozy ambiance.

    Everything was perfect! Wonderful ambiance, service and the food was exceptional! We were a party of 4, one person had the Ricotta Gnudi and the other 3 had the Steak Frites. Will definitely come back just for the Steak Frites! Even if you’re full, you have to have dessert! We had Raspberry lemon cake, 4 layer chocolate cake and chocolate chip cheesecake. Was uncomfortably full afterwards.

    We love Russell’s for dinner or happy hour, however, I think we’ll pass on brunch there in the future. They simply cram in too many people for the experience to be enjoyable. The 2-top we were sat at was wedged in between two large tables - the space BARELY accommodated a table & two chairs. Taking out at least two tables on the main floor would have made everyone happier. We asked for a different table the host laughed off that it’s tight everywhere and didn’t provide other options. I watched at least 3 more parties ask for different tables or complain about the space in the 45 minutes we were there. We were happy our sub par food came quick so we could get out of that overcrowded loud space. We had a reservation too.
