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

We enjoyed the first night of our ski vacation with dinner at Russell’s. Food and wine were both very good and we lucked out with a window table. Overall, a very pleasant evening.

I made the reservation based on the recommendation of family members that love Russell's. I was in Vail with a group of guys for a long weekend of skiing. Russell's was as great as advertised! The escargot and the smoked salmon appetizers were terrific as were the steaks ( I said I was with guys!). The desserts were also very good. The atmosphere was very warm and comfortable. We had a table that looked out of a large window onto the street outside so people watching added to the experience. All in all a great night at a very good restaurant that's been around for a long time. I should have tried it sooner and will definitely return! Highly recommended!

We always get reservations at Russells which is our favorite restaurant. FYI. When they have the Colorado lamb act quickly as it goes fast and is without equal.

Russell's is a must in Vail. The food is not super fancy but so delicious! High quality steaks and seafood. Good wine list. I always get the surf and turf...most expensive thing on the menu and 100% worth it!

Excellent food and service. the only problem was that it was very noisy - not sure what could be done about that? Perhaps some noise reducing technology in the ceiling? Otherwise, had a wonderful time with amazing food.

Overall good restaurant. Food was good quality with reasonably good taste and a good price point (for Vail). Had the filet mignon, and it was well prepared, but really needed the accompanying Bernaise sauce to bring out the flavor. Vegetables and gratin potatoes were delicious. Cheesecake with raspberry sauce was yummi. Service was fast and friendly, and the atmosphere was casual and energetic; just sit down, eat, and have a good time. Will definitely go back!

Service was just average. We waiting 15 for our server to take our drink order. Once all food orders were placed after 25 min of waiting, then the food came quickly.
Onion soup is below average, but the blackened Grouper fish was fantastic.
