    Lunch with 4 friends. One from California. She was impressed with view , food & service! She said this one was the nicest Nordstrom restaurant she’s been to. Such a nice change from all the tourist spots in Waikiki.

    The server recommendation of adding sautéed onions and mushrooms to our prime rib French dip was the best recommendation we have ever had. I had previously had the prime rib French dip and never had any server recommend this. We we so satisfied with this recommendation. Our server checked on our food as soon as it was served and let us know it was a little too toasted. But it was actually great. She was the most amazing server I we have had there

    Always an enjoyable dining experience whenever we eat at Ruscello. Pleasantly surprised with what looked like a new salad menu. I dined on the Cilantro Lime Shrimp Salad 🦐🍈🥗 while my husband ate the Pepperoni & Mushroom Pizza 🍄🍕 Service was provided by Neysa. She was very attentive to our needs and personable! For dessert we shared Kona French Pressed coffee and a Lemon Blueberry Cupcake 🍋🫐🧁 BTW, always helpful to make reservations via the Open Table App in order to secure a table in a timely manner.

    I go to Ruscello pretty often. Food and service is good. Lunch in the weekend gets busy so be sure to make a reservation in advanced! I went at 11:45am today and I overheard the host saying the wait was a hour and 20 minutes.

    The salad was not up to par. It was much better when I had it a couple of months ago. Less ingredients such as radishes and avocado. Too overloaded with spinach. Quinoa was tough.

    Make reservations as it gets very busy. Seating outside was perfect in the early afternoon. The sun was out but the building blocked direct sunlight. I’m pretty sure the later afternoon you’d be in the sun.

    The outside seating offers a wonderful view of Ala Moana Park and ocean and is well worth it (bring your sunglasses). We have enjoyed Ruscello in the past but this time, were very disappointed, especially in the service. We were seated and had a very long wait before we were even approached by a waitperson. No table setups, no water, we then had a long wait before our wine and water were brought to the table. Then again, we had to wait for setups. It was long time for the appetizer, but the rest of the meal was delivered in a reasonable time. My partner was disappointed in the sauce on the poke - he would have preferred plain shoyu. My green goddess salad was good.

    Relaxing on a Friday after work with friends. It was a hard week and it was nice to just sit back with great coworkers and end the work week. We asked our waiter about a particular champagne and he had a really hard time explaining it to us. I would think for Nordstroms, the servers would have knowledge on a lot of the menu items. It wasn’t only with our drinks, but also with some of the questions we had about the food items.

    I have fallen in love with Ruscello! It’s a hidden treasure in the middle of Nordstrom‘s! I just discovered it this past year, and I have now gone eight or nine times. Every time is just as good as the first! The food is crazy delicious, and if you’re lucky enough to get Carlee as a waitress, she’s the best! She knows the wine selections, knows the menu well, and guides us through with offering many different options each time. I just went there yesterday, and wish I could go again today☺️

    It was my 2nd time dining in with my friend. I really appreciated that most of the employees at the restaurant are wearing face mask while working. I felt safe and comfortable. The food was amazing as usual and their cocktails are amazing! There’s not many cocktails on the menu but they make the best cocktails! Service was great! The server who took care of us was really nice and came to check on us to make sure everything was okay. I’m definitely coming again with my friend for another dinner!

    The food is always delicious. We ordered a couple new dishes, Greek goddess salad with chicken and the gnocchi. Both were excellent. I usually have the Panko crusted chicken salad or the chicken Parmesan, but I think the Greek goddess salad will become my go-to salad from now on.

    New Year’s Day. My guest that I ate lunch with was having a difficult time with the waitress. I think she was new and I kept making excuses for her. Like maybe she’s new, or it’s very busy. It’s ok. I will still come back to have lunch again.

    The food was good, the service was very good, but the noise level made it hard to have a relaxed conversation. I understand the window (hard surface) allows lightand a view, but more soft surfaces are needed to baffle the noise.
