Very solid on all salads and entrees. Pleases everyone.
Amazing Place and Food!!!
The halibut and crab claw with roasted vegetables was outstanding! My hubby loved the lobster bisque and the shrimp and lobster pasta dish! Cant wait to go back to try something new!
We enjoyed our meal at Ruscello. Our service was outstanding! The waiter was prompt, courteous and attentive. We ordered calamari for an appetizer, an asian chicken salad and a panko chicken salad. The calamari was excellent, cooked and seasoned just right. My husband also really enjoyed the Asian chicken salad. I was a bit disappointed with the panko chicken salad though. The salad itself was wonderful but the chicken was served on the side in large pieces and was very bland in flavor. I highly recommend additional spices for the chicken as well as making much smaller bites that can be integrated with the salad.
really good salads, great service, like to come for lunch
When you first opened I would go out of my way to come for lunch or dinner. I came with friends, my daughter, even Friday evenings after a movie with my husband. Little by little the entrees we order have been scaled back. Last night the dinner salad I ordered had so few wontons and almonds I had to search for them. The chicken was the size of one small chicken tender. It was the size of a side salad. I am a small person. Still I left hungry. No bread was offered. I am assuming there is now an up charge for that. We will not be back. We’ll miss you!
My fourth time here. Good food, great service. I will return.
Food quality was terrible . Crispy chicken wings, not crispy very greasy. Pepperoni pizza and my wife’s Salmon dish also very greasy. Not sure we will ever go back. Alan Oliver
Matt was our server and he was excellent. Very knowledgeable and attentive while giving my lunch date and I space. Good food and many gluten-free options. One of my fave places for lunch.
Food and service was very good. Their wine prices are very high (a glass price equal to what one could buy the entire bottle at a liquor store) and it would help if they have house wines at more reasonable prices. I note our book club liked the restaurant as we could actually hear each other speak, good acoustics.
The staff was very friendly and attentive!
This was a surprise! I had a chicken pasta dish with the best (in house roasted) chicken I be had in a restaurant in years.
Fabulous service too.
Good as always. Especially good value, and a small but decent wine list.
Love their food. Love the service people, they are all very friendly and enjoy working as a team. However, It didn’t appear that there was a bartender the night we were their. Consequently our drinks were lagging. Also, our waitress was having to create the drinks so we didn’t get the best service. I am sure it was a glitch. I have never had anything but excellent food here.
We had booked an early table for New Years Eve at 530pm which was confirmed by OpenTable. As we showed up, the hostess informed us that they were closing and no longer seating. We said we had a reservation so she began to seat us and the guy behind the bar (maybe the manager?) called out that they were closed. They had called from a number different from the number on the OpenTable booking but no voicemail.
My wife had eaten here before and we wanted a quick casual meal before NYE festivities but it turned out to be a frustrating event. We won’t be back only because this was handled so poorly, wasted our time, no voicemail/text via phone or message thru OpenTable, and we ended up having a great meal at the bar at Redstone.
Excellent service . . .entree's were excellent.
We were last reservation on New Years Eve. We were not hurried out even though we were last diners.
The hostess asked me to be completed with my meal in 1 hour. So taken aback with this comment. Will never go to this restaurant again! Also, did not receive points!
The food was great. It was my wife's birthday. I called ahead to have a candle put on one of their deserts. The server did not get the message. When i asked for the cake it took over 15min to get it. I know help is hard to find but you need to do a better job of training your staff.
Very delicious food at a good value..nice evening ambiance. Dont feel like you are at a store restaurant.
Food was very good. Service was terrible! We had to flag down our waitress for everything. She brought the wine fairly fast but didn’t ask if we wanted bread or appetizer. Flagged her down to order appetizer and bread. It finally came right before the entre. After that, she didn’t check on us or clear plates for long time.
We were there for over 2 hours. Saw other tables come and go. Never had a problem with service there before so something must have been going on that night.
The setting is very nice, and the decor and ambiance are excellent. The menu isn't extensive, but everything tastes fresh and is well executed. The service team members go beyond brisk and efficient, they are helpful and knowledgeable. It feels very relaxed and enjoyable to eat there.
We had a wonderful business lunch. The service was terrific. The noise level was perfect--we could actually hear each other talking.
Love this place!
It ended up being a busy evening. While I had a reservation for 7 I was greeted with the message ‘we hope we can seat
you’. We were seated but it did appear that the kitchen was backed up. We ordered the Tuscan Chicken which was overdone and the veggies appeared sparse. This is the first time we came away feeling a bit let down. We like this restaurant as usually it’s quiet and comfortable with great food. It also took a while for our order.
Generally a good spot and recommendable, but something was off today...
Service was awkward, not sure how much experience the server had, but there was no sense of urgency and lack of understanding basic/simple requests i.e beverage orders, bread, salt & pepper, etc... Overall wait time for entrées was unusually long for not being so busy.
Calamari was unseasoned, could only eat ~50%, wouldn't order again.
Burger ordered well and not chard came out chard and medium - could not eat, but would have been good if cooked properly.
Pasta dish was cold and cheese sauce mostly solidified - was good but could have been better served hot
In disappointment, the salmon and farro salad dish is no longer on the menu, which was a favorite. And should have stuck with the lobster risotto which had alway ben excellent.
Although the experience this time was a miserable failure, the manager did comp both entrees, and we would return another day as visits in the past have typically been enjoyable.
I hope today's experience is not a trend.
The environment is wonderful to enjoy a relaxed meal, food specials are always good and service is usually attentive. This is our favorite place to dine.
Really liked our waitperson!
Food and service were both great. Dined there for lunch with several friends. Would definitely meet there again.
The food is always delicious and service very good!
the food is consistently delicious and ambience lovely for a shopping mall. Our server had zero personality and gave us zero attention. took our order, plopped down the plates, cleared the plates, plopped down the check. It was extremely quiet in the restaurant and he was not visibly waiting on too many other parties. Very disappointing. Also, what happened to the chocolate mint sticks Nordstrom used to give with the check? We didn't get those either
Ruscello consistently excels in service and food. I could eat their chicken meatballs every day! It is our “go to“ place whenever we want delicious food and a soothing atmosphere. Thank you!
Food - service excellent as usual. Hostess not very gracious.
Excellent all around - gets a little noisy, but for lunch it is fine.
I usually order a salad for lunch. Russell’s has wonderful, unusual combinations. Delish!!
This is a favorite dining spot of mine. Yesterday, a few friends & I celebrated a birthday there. We had a booth by the window which was comfortable & lovely. I typically order one of their excellent salads but yesterday I tried the Tuscan Grilled Chicken which might be my new favorite - 2 large, grilled chicken breasts sat stop a mixture of farro, asparagus, baby tomatoes, brussel sprouts, etc. It was expertly seasoned & delicious! Wendy was our server and did an excellent job. It was an enjoyable lunch. I'll be back and I definitely recommend it to others!
My husband and I were shopping at Nordstrom’s and decided to
have lunch at Ruscello’s. This is my second time there and it does not disappoint. We both ordered their Asian salad which was delicious.
Service wasn’t as attentive as usual, but we enjoyed our meal. I’ve never had this wait person before. I like the others better.
We asked for several dishes ( including my favorite) which they were out of ( at least 2 entrees). We had to ask for bread. I realize that this is your policy but, the waiter could ask if we wanted bread.
We have been in many times and have been happy but, to be out of 2 dishes when it is only 6:30pm is not good customer service. It was not very busy, many of the old waiters were not there and we will not be back for quite awhile.
