My fiancé and I usually don’t go out to fine dining restaurants as often. And when we did, we weren’t blown away. At Russell’s, it was way beyond than what I expected. Unfortunately I came in 20 minutes later than my reservation and they still sat us down without hesitation or anything. The staff was phenomenal. The server Eric was very polite and attentive, he had blown our minds away when he was explaining the menu. Very impressed. We both had ordered off the dinner for two and there was nothin wrong starting from the Italian wedding soup, steak ala Russell, to the creme brule. At the end of it all we were given complimentary chocolate dipped strawberries for our anniversary. I would 12 out of 10 would HIGHLY recommend giving this place a go.

We went to celebrate our 50th anniversary. It was excellent. Couldn't ask for better food or service. Who ever trains the staff, kudos to you. It was a GREAT experience.

Getting together with old friends is a treat at Russell’s! From the warm personal welcome Russ and Robert extends, to the sophisticated servers, the dining experience is outstanding. My steak as well as the dinners of my wife and friends was perfection!

Our server, Michael, was terrific. We capped off our evening with cocktails that were expertly mixed! Molto Bene!

Another great dinner at Russell's!! This is my second time in 2 weeks & both experiences were amazing. I always appreciate being personally greeted by Mr. Salvatore & wishing him a good evening. Our waiter this evening, Andrew, took VERY GOOD care of us & saw to it that we had a PERFECT evening. Tonight, my boyfriend & I each enjoyed filet mignon. I'm one of those people that likes mine very rare and it came out to perfection. Then, at the end of dinner Andrew really went over the top & even took us for a quick tour of the kitchen. It was a great Bday celebration for my boyfriend. Thank you Andrew & of course, Mr. Salvatore!! Russell's is always at the top of my list for a really nice evening & a great dinner.

Perfect in every way! From coat check to the attentive waiters in the lounge, to the four plus people that manage every detail of you dinner, to Russel Salvatore greeting you when you at the resevation desk when you arrive. A wonderful evening with the highest quality food and an extraordinary value.

Dining experience at Russell's never disappoints. the staff is always friendly and on spot and the food is impeccable. Russell Salvatore also makes his presence know to make sure things are in tip top shape and by the ambiance, quality of food and entire experience it shows. We have no problem coming back time after time.

The food was excellent except the crab cakes. I am from Maryland and I know crab cakes. They used to be excellent here, but now they are bad. No lump crabmeat and contained peppers. The rest of the meal was phenomenal.

We love coming here, only one problem we had with paying our bill with a gift cert. It was a $50 and we are now taking it up with Mark. My daughter who lives in CA. Know how we enjoy our dinners and frequently gives us a gift card. This time it was for $150 of which we used $100 of it and were left with a $50 which we wanted to use towards our Easter dinner. I've provided Mark Jerge with the info.he needed. We are elderly and found this upsetting. I'm sure our daughter will no longer be sending us gift ceft. For Russell's. Enough said!

My husband and I had a delicious dinner on Sunday April 1. We thoroughly enjoyed the rack of lamb and the steak a la Russell. Our meat was done perfectly and the wines we chose paired well with our entrees. We wouldn't hesitate to recommend Russell's to our friends. And, we are returning on May 7th to celebrate our 2nd wedding anniversary - we had our wedding reception at Russell's! Gracious service, too!

Upon entry everything was fantastic. Russell was right at the door greeting everyone as usual. The host who sat us was also nice.
Our waiter Andy was knowledgeable and friendly. We enjoyed his candor and he had a pleasant sense of humor. He made the experience even more fantastic.
We chose an appetizer that was spectacular (shrimp, fried artichoke, lump crab and clams casino, delicately prepared). Once we received our entrees (Ribeye and Lamb) we could barely indulge, we were full. However, it was absolutely delicious.
Oh, and let's not forget the wine selection is superb. Russell will always be remembered for each special touch of this restaurant. We're looking forward to going again.
