    Food was very good. Wife’s steak was slightly undercooked but tasty. Definitely ordered too much food. Ordered calamari which was delicious as well as onion soup. Almost didn’t have enough room for my entree. We brought a lot home. Service ( Nick) was excellent!!

    Excellent fine dining experience. The staff are very well educated in the art and science of hospitality. Steaks and Chops are in the name so don’t come expecting fusion-esque cutting edge entrees. These are excellent very well prepared traditional entrees prepared to perfection. Pricy but worth it.

    We had a wonderful waitress, great food, excellent service and hospitality. We started out with a basket of several different types of bread that was served with seasoned butters and an olive tamponade. Our Caesar salads were very good. For our main course, I had the pistachio crusted lamb and my son & daughter in law both enjoyed the Filet Mignon. The sides of smashed yukon gold potatoes, smashed seasoned sweet potatoes paired with buttered green beans were quite a hit. We were celebrating my son and daughter in law's birthday's as well as their 2 yr wedding anniversary. The waitress went out of her way to make sure they were treated to 2 very large (and delicious) chocolate covered strawberries served on a cloud of whipped cream. We left feeling quite full and were extremely satisfied with our dinner experience at Russell's!

    We have eaten at Russells a half a dozen times over the course of the past two years. It has generally been great. My only complaint this time was about the piece of steak that I received (the standard New York strip). It had quite a bit of gristle in it, and after getting about halfway through it, I had a significant pile of it that I had put on one of the smaller plates (the rest still sits in my fridge). I could feel it as I was cutting through the steak with the steak knife consistently. This is the first time that it has happened, and every single other piece of steak that I've gotten from Russells has been great. It was a bit of a disappointment, considering what I had gotten used to.

    I have eaten at Russels a few times before. This time I was seated in the bar. Service was slow. It was 10 minutes before my waiter came to the table, another 10 minutes to get my glass of wine. My salad came out soon after, but my entree, a steak, didn’t come out for another 30 minutes. All the while, my waiter was inattentive and didn’t bother to check to see if I needed anything. Very disappointing service for a restaurant of this calibre.

The food was absolutely delicious and my steak melted in my mouth. We ate in a booth in the bar area, just love the music and ambiance in there. Overall just a wonderful evening and dining experience. Can hardly wait to go back. I would highly recommend.
