We sat at a table towards the back by the kitchen, so it was a bit noisy. But we had kids with us so totally fine. The restaurant is a bit dark, but the food was amazing! Recommend the tenderloin and the crab legs! The wine list was good value, we ordered a nice CA cab and meritage. Great CO fare, will go back!

Food is very good with the filet probably being the best in the Vail area. Service was excellent. Menu is standard for a steak house, limited side dish selections, great deserts. On a scale of 1 to 10 I give it a 8.5. Best resturant in Vail village. I recommend you make a reservation and experience Russell’s for yourself.

Russell's is one of our favorite places, but not our best experience this time. Their crab legs are to die for! So yummy! Unfortunately they were cold in the middle:( Service was mediocre. Waitress didn't seem to be too happy to be there and the manager was admittedly not having a good night. I think they were short-staffed but they didn't handle very well. The pendant light hanging above our table was so bright my daughter joked that she felt like she was in the interrogation seat. We will probably try again because we have had better experiences in the past

Horrible service for an “upscale “ restaurant, everything was a “no”, steaks ok, crab good.
Always confused with the reservation, not the first time...
More than 100 dollar included tip for an awful service.
Very disappointed used to be a good restaurant.

My husband and I both had their “House Specialty”; Steak Diane, which was outstanding! The Au gratin potatoes that come with it were also great. We were given a window seat overlooking the Gore River making our dinner even more wonderful! I would greatly recommend Russell’s for a fabulous dinner occasion!

We loved the cozy atmosphere and the location. The warm bread was wonderful but honestly we have had much better steaks for the same price at other restaurants. Our server was efficient but not at all welcoming or friendly. For the price of dinner, we expect all bases to be covered, from quality of food to friendly service.

Waitstaff we experienced was burned out, both at table and bar. They seem to wish they were doing something else with their lives. We both Had steak Diane. Much simpler preparation than I’m used to, nice tasting filet on a puddle of brown sauce. Caesar salad and sides were good. Very noisy, boisterous crowd. We asked to not sit near bar as the volume was at a yelling level. If you are looking to crank up the evening, this spot would fit the bill, especially the bar seating. Appears locals are favored over those unfamiliar to the staff.

The trout and ribs are both fantastic. Service is friendly the flavors are delicious. There is a reason the restaurant has been open in Vail for such a long time. It is not inexpensive but the quality is First Class
