As always, Russell was at the hostess stand ready to greet us. It is always such a pleasure to see him.
We enjoyed a fabulous meal for my girlfriend's birthday. There was a scallop and beet risotto special that she and my husband thoroughly enjoyed, while her husband and I had steak. Everything was prepared to perfection. Eric was our waiter and we enjoyed conversation with him regarding different types of vodkas. He was such a delight and surprised my friend with a special addition to her dessert. Love Russell's and will be back soon.

Started off with cocktails at the bar, the ambiance was relaxing and the cocktails delicious. After cocktails we were seated in our requested perimeter booth and enjoyed our dinner for two. The service and food were outstanding as usual. They even brought a Birthday treat for my wife (which she thoroughly enjoyed). All said, we had a great evening and look forward to stopping by in the near future to experience Gimme 5 Tuesday with friends.

I recently moved back to Buffalo after being gone for 30+ years. I have had the opportunity to dine in many foreign countries over that stated period of time, I will say that this was a AWESOME dining experience. The staff as well as Mr. Salvatore may greet you some by first name basis with a smile. The timing on the entire diner experience was spot on.

MY HATS OFF TO YOU AND YOUR STAFF.

This is my first visit to Russel’s. I have friends who rave about this place. So I decided it was time to treat myself. The ambiance and service was top notch. I was dining alone, was seated in the dining room with the large window looking west, and was treated to a magnificent sunset as I enjoyed my salad. I had the Sea Bass dinner. The food was very tasty. Unfortunately, the fish was barely lukewarm when it was served. The rice was piping hot. So I’m guessing the sea bass sat on the plate for a few moments before the rice was plated. I ordered a tiramisu and espresso for dessert. Again, the espresso arrived barely lukewarm. And it was cold by the time the tiramisu arrived. It would have been better if I’d been able to enjoy a piping hot espresso with my dessert. Other than that, the meal and experience was enjoyable.

This was our second experience at Russell’s and though the first time was great, our second visit was even better. We made dinner reservations for our daughter’s birthday on 3/17/19, and our servers were nice, but our waiter, Luke, made the occasion memorable. The atmosphere was perfect and the food was superb. Thank you all for creating such a warm and welcoming establishment.

Anniversary dinner was AMAZING!!! We were welcomed by Mr. Salvatore and seated immediately. Our server was excellent! We got strawberries with our champagne. Our dinner was deicious! Our filets were cooked perfectly and the sides were a great compliment. We got chocolate covered strawberries with our dessert, which was yummy and came on a decorated plate. We left happy and full. Can’t wait to come back!

The place is nice the food is great but the service is not quite perfect. We made a reservation for 7:30 and did not get a seat until lil after 8. Why make a reservation if you have to wait anyway. Its like going to the doc you have an appointment and you sit in room after room waiting for a 10 min chat with the doc for $300. The water boys pour the water so fast the glass overflowed and you get splashed almost every time. Thank god they dont pour red wine. Next the server asked if we wanted more bread and we said yes then never brought bread. Felt like i got better service at applebees at that point. However this is minor but not expected at a place like this. So the overall exp was not great but nice. We would go again and hope its better than the last.

We ordered off the menu using the $90 for two special. My companion ordered the wahoo special and I ordered the Pork Chop. The Wahoo was overcooked and very dry, after bringing it to the attention of our server they removed it from the bill. The Pork Chop was excellent. Service was excellent

The best steak we've had in years. The Sunday at the Grand is an awesome deal. It included our room, dinner for two, and a hot breakfast served on real plates and silverware (not a styrofoam plate or plastic ware anywhere in sight). Russ really is there 24/7, and it shows with the extremely high service level and attention to detail. When is the last time you stayed at a hotel where someone was dusting all the pictures in the hallway? It was the perfect romantic staycation for us, and we'll definitely be back!

The service was second to none. All of her tables needs were met. The food was outstanding and the Ambiance was excellent.

Our server Andrew was fantastic! Great interaction and advice. It was clear he takes pride in his job. He added to the experience in such a positive way.
The food and the pacing were perfect. The recommended wine was perfect. Coffee was amazing. Steaks were served perfectly. The French onion soup is the best around! I had the sweet potato mash as my side and it was so good. My husband had the blue cheese mash which were also very good.
Only complaint was that the asst. server was awkward and did a horrible job wrapping our leftovers. He took my plate and literally dumped it into the container and then took my husband’s plate and dumped t on top of my leftovers. All the food and sides got mushed together and kinda ruined our leftovers. Very surprised with the disregard to our food at such a nice restaurant. He did the same with the leftover chocolate cake my husband had. He just dumped it into a container. Not really a snob but this kid needs to be properly trained. When spending $150-$200 I want to be able to enjoy my leftovers and not have them mixed all together in one big mess

Excellent overall. It is most refreshing to be somewhere that people take honest pride in their job and do it exceptionally well. My husband is one who normally finds fault in something when we go places and came up with nothing that was wrong. High class all the way.

My husband and I (as well as the rest of my family) have been frequent diners of Russell's through the years however it had been a year or so since we returned. While the service and atmosphere were impeccable, we were rather let down by our meal and felt the quality of the food had diminished a bit since our last visit. Our caesar salads were wilted and the dressing was at the same time bland and too fishy even after asking for no anchovies. My filet mignon had several fatty areas that were inedible and as a result I left half of my steak on the plate. In addition, the lobster mac and cheese which is usually my favorite part of the meal was gritty, as if it had too much flour in the bechamel cheese sauce. We were there celebrating a birthday so we didn't want to complain and ruin the experience for the birthday girl so we let it go and chalked it up as a fluke. Hoping our next time there will be much better.
