Russell's has always been a favorite. We have never been disappointed. 5 of us came to celebrate a birthday and a house sale closing. All 5 of our dinners were fantastic! The wine was wonderful, the appetizers great. We shared 2 desserts.... My friends that had never been here before will be coming back.

As always another great meal. Crab cakes are killer to start. The salmon was done to perfection. The only “but” was I think they changed the way they make the bread pudding and while it still has the amazing caramel sauce, the bread was drier and not as melt in your mouth as in the past.

But still a wonderful experience.

I reserved the restaurant to celebrate the birthday. We ordered the crab cake and it was ice cold Inside. The special menu, halibut was overcooked, dry and The taste was not very good. For dessert, i asked
For the slice of cake with writing (HBD), there was no surprise. Of course, no compensation.

Eaten here several times and the last few times have been pretty lackluster. Food was just okay -- nothing special. Service was EXTREMELY slow. And the price didn't seem like it was worth it. Not sure if we will frequent this restaurant anymore.

Came for dinner with another couple. Waited in the bar, had to ask to be seated even though we had a rez. When seated we were in the back corner next to a large table for a little girl's bday party.
The wine list gets kudos for being almost strictly Northwest, but I would have liked to see a few old-world options too, like a French white etc...
Food was very good and the server was extremely nice, but VERY uninformed on the menu. We asked a few questions both about the food and wine which she couldn't answer. She kindly asked someone else in the back, but it was a little strange she didn't even know what type of cheese was on the appetizer plate.

Russell's has a safe menu, and while we didn't experience any dramatic mistakes in the cuisine, the chef left a lot of opportunities on the table. Our crab cakes, for example, were heavy and could have used heat from a sauce, or even something sour from a yogurt-based sauce, for balance. The smoked salmon cream sauce accompanying the mussels was a creative twist, but the dish didn't work as a cohesive plate: the dish had much more sauce, and the sauce was too thin, to add meaningfully to the mussels, which was all right because what it did add was overpowering the relatively delicate flavor of the star of the plate; the chef provided some bread to soak up the sauce, but the bread was so strongly buttered that it overpowered the sauce - all in all the dish had three great components (mussels, sauce, and bread) that were good on their own but didn't play well together. We ordered the filet, and the chef was able to handle the cook (our server asked how we would like the steak cooked, and we simply replied "properly"), providing a rare piece of high-quality meat. The double-cut pork chop was also properly cooked and flavored. The entrees, though, both suffered from too little flavor and texture diversity. The pommes puree accompanying the pork chop was good, and the mushroom risotto accompanying the filet was good, but both were very safe. Each dish came with "seasonal vegetables," which turned out to be two small carrots and a few cubes of squash, both roasted versus grilled and otherwise untreated. The pork dish was crying for an apple slaw or some brighter note, and the filet was begging for grill marks on a larger portion of vegetables to add some bitter intrigue. The ambience had a good general appeal but took no artistic risks; the target demographic is definitely the over-40 (maybe even over-50) crowd. Service was error-free but provided no unique insight into the menu (maybe there was no insight to provide since we had a very WYSIWYG experience).
