    Very expensive, and very over rated. The food was unflavored and nothing special in the least. Our server was great, really the only stand out thing about our visit to Russell’s. I would not recommend this restaurant and we do not plan on returning.

    My husband and I went to Russell's Restaurant on a Saturday evening to enjoy a meal and have a low key celebration of our anniversary. The service was attentive and personable. The wine selection was extensive and expensive. The menu was a bit limited, however, the food was well-prepared and delicious. The only downside was the noise level. The tables were closely pack and the atmosphere was loud. It was difficult to hear ourselves at a normal conversation level. Russell's with their good food, white table cloths and linens, candles, and the dim lighting, could be a relaxing and romantic location for an enjoyable dining experience. They need to decide if they want to be "fine dining" or T.G.I. Fridays.

    There were several options for the entrees. I chose the filet mignon and the flavor was beyond exceptional. My friend chose the scallops and commented on how delicious they were. We also ordered the Muscles as an appetizer but in my option those was not great very salt watery fishy flavor which I could not eat. I much prefer them prepared in butter wine and garlic rather than the cream sauce used in the preparation at Russell’s. Overall it was a great experience!

    Always a great experience with great food and service. It is always moderately noisy but fine. Keep in mind that there is only a $15 corkage fee on WA State Wines. Great service they offer.

    This is the fourth time we eat at Russell's. Everything is nice at Russell's: the atmosphere, the hospitable people serving you, and of course their food. It is one of our favorite places because the quality of all the dishes we have ordered is amazing!! Their wine list is very complete and it is focused on Washington wines (as it should be!!!).

    Our favorite restaurant! We are never disappointed with the food or service. It's getting a bit noisier. I guess it's a favorite of other diners too! My daughter told me about a new salad on the menu that was delicious. Spinach, sliced almonds, cruising and the special topper, pancetta bits with a pancettta vinaigrette. So good!

    I can’t speak highly enough of this restaurant. Great food and superlative service. Even the little things - serving and removing plates correctly - speak to a well-trained staff. We will definitely visit again the next time we are in the Seattle area. If you live here, we are jealous.

    Russell’s has great food and a great ambience, but it is the service of Maitre’D Dan that is truly outstanding. We have known Dan for over 20 years since his days as one of the owners of 21 Central in Kirkland - great sense of humor, attentive without being invasive, knows your tastes and engages everyone in your group. He truly makes a visit to Russell’s special.

    This is a special place-a gift from one of the PNW's best chefs. His motto of "simple done well" is consistently executed - tonight it was perfectly cooked sea bass and a medium well filet. They have a new cocktail menu, and the Wham has some serious kick. Note that we've been going here for at least 10 years, and it's always comfortable to return (even watching a painful Seahawks preseason game in the bar). Superb staff who remember your names.
