This is our go to for a nice upscale business dinner in the Bothell/Canyon Park area. The service was great and very attentive. The filet mignon, scallops, and salmon were all big hits at our table. The noise level was perfect for conversations. I highly recommend this place!

The service was outstanding. Unfortunately, I can't remember the person (male) who served us, but he has been working there for about 7 years. The food was super. WQe had a great evening.

Thank you.

Really enjoyed our meals at Russells. Went on a Sunday, and fairly early (5ish) and surprised that the place was already filling up.

My son and I had the fillet (medium, and melt in your mouth good). My wife had the swordfish and my daughter in law had the scallops. Started with a wonderful salad, too and finished with the crumb desert. Service was plentiful and respectful, not rushed.

Even though we were in the middle of the restaurant the noise factor wasn’t too bad; we could carry on with conversations without having to scream at each other.

Brought our neighbors for their first experience at Russell's. They loved it as much as we do! Steaks were outstanding as ALWAYS, and I was told that the Pork Chop was great too. Oh, did I mention the scallops! Yahooooo. Thanks for making it a great evening all around.
Lara Lara Lara - best ever for our waitperson.... and friend.

We were impressed on our first, but definitely not last, visit to Russell's. From start to finish it was a wonderful experience. We were a little skeptical driving there since it's in the middle of business parks, but once we arrived we quickly forgot the drive as we were immersed in the restaurant's ambiance. The wine and liquor selections were great and the bar was a cozy spot to wait for our table (we arrived early). Our server and bidder were extremely friendly and attentive, not to mention took very good care to address our food allergies. We started by sharing the scallop appetizer (4), which was hot with a nice seer and nicely dressed on a bed of arugula. Then I had the double pork chop grilled to a perfect medium. I was a little jealous of my husband's NY strip however. Luckily he gave me a bite! We finished with creek brûlée that the hubs said was the best he's ever had. We plan to come back soon and to bring friends!

Food was delicious but ridiculously overpriced. The seasonal veggies were sparse - 3 tiny pieces of zucchini and 3 carrots are not my idea of an adequate side for the amount that is paid. Plenty of mashed potatoes. Too expensive

Dinner started with a greeting from the sweetest, happiest server - ever! It continued with the yummiest scallop appetizer and a beet and arugala salad. My date had wonderful-grilled king salmon and I had the most amazing and tasty breast of duck. Overall, dinner was just perfect including the food and the service. We will return soon.

The menu at Russell's is excellent, with several wonderful dishes available for most every palate. The service was attentive, friendly, and ready to please. The noise level, however, was stifling. We were two couples sitting at a four-top table, and it was impossible to talk with the person directly across the table. As I looked around, I could see people raising their voices to communicate with the table, increasing the noise for all of us. Ceiling sound protection? Table spacing? Expansion? It's hard to tell what might work to make going to Russell's enjoyable from that perspective.

Service was amazing! Bread was incredible. The rest of the meal was ok given that you received almost no food for an overly high price. One would expect absolute taste perfection for that price. Sadly, that was not the case. We do not plan to visit again.

It had been a while since we ate at Russell's. Little has changed, which is good. It gets a bit noisy sometimes, but with the friendly staff and great food, who cares? Our party of four had a great time. I really liked the fettuccini with prawns. The best I've had for a while! Reservations via Open Table recommended.
