Everything at Russell's was very good. Our waiter was very attentive and made excellent suggestions. Our food was served promptly and was well presented. We will return to Russell's on our next visit to Vail.

Cocktails and wine were great. Apps were off the chart. Steaks were done to perfection. Rib eye could of had more marbling for more flavor. They should put the porterhouse back on the menu.

We were a party of 4. Only 1 entree was cooked to its order. One Med Rarefilet was only seared on the outside & raw in the middle. A fish order was served barely warm.

Birthday dinner for someone in our group. No one said anything to that regard. Our waitress was fine, a little dry. Nothing spectacular. Our food was good. Just if you mention it’s someones birthday in the reservation, which I did, you would expect someone to acknowledge that.
