    It was our second time at Russels! We know Russels has a great reputation and our first time everything was perfect. This time we visited on Wednesday evening (8/3), most of our seafood was pretty undercooked, some of our scallops were still cold in the center and our sea bass was quite under done. Our crème brûlée was also not set, so it was more like a very soft pudding. The pork chop was perfect and the service was attentive. We will absolutely be back, we know even the best places have their off nights or can be short staffed in the kitchen. It was a tad disappointing of course, but we are sure our next experience will be worth another 5 stars!

    The steaks are top notch and the service is very good, prices have gone up but that is everywhere. What I did like and did not appreciate, and it is a small thing but left me feeling that the restaurant was being unethical was that the check comes with a tip schedule at the bottom of the bill but they calculate the tip on the whole bill including the tax...since when should we tip on tax?? This little thing had me leave the restaurant with a bad taste in my mouth and the pun is intentional!

    Russell's is always very good. Typically you'd have to go to Bellevue or downtown to get the kind of quality meal and ambience you get at Russell's in Bothell.

    Lara is the best server there. She’s been taking such good care of us for almost two decades. She sent my wife home with a little extra caramel sauce as her birthday gift too. The food is consistently excellent. We all had the filet mignon and substituted risotto. Both were cooked perfectly and tasted delicious. Cocktails were excellent. Caesar salad was cold, crisp and perfectly dressed. The bread pudding is the best you’ll ever taste. We love Russsll’s.

    As of 7/21/22, they are still short staffed. Service level was not as good as in the past. This also meant that their outside dining area was not open even though it was a beautiful evening.

    A wonderful place, tucked away from the hustle and bustle of the city (Bothell)...located in an industrial area which used to be a farm area. The barns (2 of them) have been converted to restaurant. The cathedral part of the barn is for special occassions with party reservations only, so don't expect to dine there (upstairs) for usual dinner experience. The decor is rustic and tasteful. All the food portions are VERY generous and high-quality meat/ingredients. Expect to pay about $100 per person (with an usual appetizer, entree, and wine). We were very impressed by the pork loin, steak sirloin, beef tips, etc....the meats were outstanding. Not something we can afford every month, but definitely will go back on special occassions. Service was excellent, and ambience is posh despite being lively and chattery (which we didn't mind).

    Our party of four was marking the last night in the U.S. of our German friends' visit. Everyone was in the mood for a good steak. What a fantastic surprise when the evening's special turned out to be ribeye steak! Although New York Strip Steak and Filet Mignon were both on the menu, ribeye is the favorite of two members of our party. Dinner didn't disappoint. Service was well-paced and friendly. Water was replenished frequently. Both the cocktails and the wine were first rate. The ambience at Russell's was perfect - fine dining with a relaxed atmosphere. This was our first visit to Russell's, but we will most certainly return.

    My duck was undercooked and tough. The fat was not at all brown or crispy as it should be. My wife's salmon was very salty and undercooked. She sent it back and the new one wasn't salty but it was also way undercooked. We'll finish cooking it and have it on bagels. Very disappointed by the food. I'd heard good things about this place and went away not wanting to go back.

    Steak dinner with the Mrs and my Best Bud. Service was excellent. We all started with salads, 2 Caesars and 1 Spring, the Caesars were ok, not enough dressing to our liking that was the major issue. Would have been nice to have fresh anchovies too. The Mrs enjoyed her spring salad immensely. We all had steaks for the mains. One each NY, Filet and the special Rib Eye. All were cooked just as ordered. Overall a good meal and again our waitress was exceptional. We will return again.

    The restaurant and the food feel like they are stuck in the 1980s. The restaurant itself is dark inside and a little depressing. Both of us noticed this. The food is very rich, tons of cheese. 1980 style not that healthy even though dressed up with a few vegetables. It tasted good but you knew it wasn't that good for you. I had asked to be seated at a quiet table but was put into the middle of a crowd.

    Our dinner was bad disturbed by a noisy, over served group in the bar. The noisy, which could be heard throughout the restaurant, continued for about one hour. Eating at Russell’s is a splurge for many, it is very disappointing that the dinner is ruined by an uncontrolled group that is being over served in the bar. We will not be back.
