    The shrimp were smaller than jumbo as advertised, other than that the lobster and rack of ribs were decent but not worth the price. The place is quite out dated, the tableware was very outdated and so was the platting. Service was very under trained for fine dining. Overall if you are going to charge fine dining pricing then step up the game.

    Russells is one of my favorite restaurants in Vail. They always deliver excellent food and service. Their steaks and ribs are the best!

    The food was decent. I got a steak and a single king crab leg. It cost me around 102. Total for a table of 5 was around 350. Slightly overpriced but you are in vail. The food was good. The steak was okay with the crab leg being slightly above average. At most for the quality of food with a priemum for location it should have cost around 75 for my plate. The waiter is my opinion put off a vibe like she did not want to serve our table. I'll leave it at that. I probably wouldn't come back.

    It was ok. Everyone's vegetables were cold. We asked them to leave the sauce off the two salmon entries but they put it on anyway. They did comp us a dessert to make up for it, but they actually should have comped us for the salmon they messed up. Service was a little slow in general, but I'm willing to chalk that up to the difficulty in hiring staff this season. Honestly, though, at this price point we might recommend that friends eat somewhere else.

    Russell's is one of our favorite spots in Vail. The steaks and the ribs are terrific, we love those scalloped potatoes, and the bread is mmm delicious! The service is consistently excellent, and they always accommodate us by seating us at our favorite little table at the window. We think that it is a reasonably-priced restaurant for Vail.

    Russell’s is one of our favorite restaurants in Vail. Emma was our server and she was perfect! Our dinners were outstanding. The bread was crusty and delicious. Tony’s ribs were fantastic. My filet with bearnaise sauce was mmmm amazing. We were so happy that Russell’s still serves those delicious scalloped potatoes. The hostesses accommodated our request to seat us in a quiet spot. They did their best, and I am grateful. It’s too bad that the tables are squeezed in really tight and we felt that we were part of the conversation with the diners at the closest table. If only Russell’s had more room to accommodate the diners.

    Service was great… friendly and prompt. Margaritas were poor… sweet like a kids lemonade. Salad was decent and fresh. Baby back ribs were very good… the best thing we had. New York strip was fine, not great. Dinner sides were disappointing… very blah.
