Russell's remains one of our favorites. Classic resort menu, consistent and delicious food. The service is always timely and friendly. The escargots is the best anywhere and the potatoes are amazing. The wine list is really smart with lots of variety and plenty of choices at varying prices. We love Russell's!

Service was a bit slow. Food was great as expected. However, the place was much louder than usual making it difficult to carry on a conversation.

We were excited to come to this place and had a reservation thinking it would be a romantic dinner. 15 minutes later, a huge party came in and we couldn't even hear each other. Would have been much more enjoyable to have a quiet table for two, not next to the rowdys. Waitress was great and food was amazing. Will know next time to ask for a secluded table.

We’ve been coming here since 1992. Still one of the best in Vail. Especially the Rocky Mountain trout. Reasonably priced entrees.

Had our 40th Wedding Anniversary dinner there, and glad we did. Outstanding service and excellent food. We split the filet and they cooked half medium and the other medium raw...and it was delicious.

Great atmosphere, but disappointed in the food. The escargot was very tender, but the sauce was overpowering with herbs, instead of enhanced with garlic & butter. The steak was not seared and not cooked as requested.

We had a great table next to the river, so the ambiance was wonderful . A comfy , cozy table for 5 . We all ordered tenderloin except one ordered the chicken . Three of our steaks came out over done , so Unfortunately, we had to send them back to be prepared the way we ordered them . They were kind enough to offer us dessert after the mess up and we took two back to our residence .
For a steak house with high reviews , we were surprised by the over cooked steaks . Maybe they have a new chef or just a bad night in the kitchen . Everything else was good !

I was very disappointed with the food and the hostesses reaction to our request for a table by the window. She seemed very dismissed when we arrived and asked whether they were going to be able to seat us at a table by a window. I had written in our OpenTable Reservation that I would have my 91-year-old mother with me and would appreciate the opportunity for her to enjoy a special view. If this messaging is offered by OpenTable and not valued by the restaurant, your customers are set up for disappointment. That was our experience..... Additionally, for the price, the food was very mediocre. The bright spot in our dinner was our waiter. He was superb!

The prices are high enough as to make this not an everyday occasion. But the service and food were very good. If you want a steak in VAil or a nice fish dish I recommend it.

Food prepared well and as ordered; service was attentive and timely but not smothering or interruptive.

Wine markup on the high-side, even for the Rockies.

We have been dining at Russell's for years when we are in Vail, always a great experience, and this trip was no different. It was a quiet, rainy evening in an "off-peak" week in the Village, and Wesley our server was outstanding and on top of everything to make it a top-notch evening overlooking roaring Gore Creek. We will be back!
