My husband and I did an overnight at Russell's. Our table was ready on time. Service was awesome, Bob was our waiter.He was very personable and was ready to meet your needs anyway he could. I thought seeing Russell greeting all of the guests as they arrived at the hostess desk as well as all showered and groomed the next morning and in the breakfast buffet room at 9:30 or earlier, was commendable. We will definitely return again.

Steaks a bit undercooked. We ordered one medium and one medium well. The medium was medium rare and the medium well was medium. Service was good and overall we enjoyed the dinner but perhaps just an off night in the kitchen. We will be back.

A a scrumptious from drinks to dessert. The owner and Host Russell Salvatore suggested that we take our time at the bar and came back 15 mins later to inform us that he has even a better table for us whenever we were ready. He was so nice and he was right. Such a special double date nite for two long married couples! Wow. Get there if you can soon!

Just the drive in to Russell's I knew it was going to be great. The landscaping and having it lit up with beautiful lights, just gorgeous. The bar, I was amazed how you put shadow boxes together with used bottles. Very creative. The staff was there eveytime to assist. My meal was very good. I enjoyed everything. Oh I almost for got, I did get to see Russell. That was very nice and thats what i was hoping for.I was thinking of looking into staying at the hotel sometime and dinner too. Thank you

If you are looking for an overall high end, wonderful atmosphere, attentive service, and decadent food restaurant to enjoy a romantic or family dinner - no better place to go! Russell is always there to greet you and make sure you are taken care of as well as having his personable staff at your beckon call. Every detail has been thought thru right down to toothpicks at the coat check when you leave! If you walk away hungry or feeling neglected, that would be your own fault.
Thank you Allen for your service and personality and thank you Russell for keeping traditions alive along with wonderful food to experience!

We had never been to Russell’s before and this was absolutely outstanding. We were there for my sons 18th Birthday and it was great. Fantastic food and service. The dinner for two is perfect! I loved the coffee so much I tried to make it at home too. Thank you for a wonderful evening.

I order the lamb chops the size of the lamb chops were small compared to the last time I visit Russell in October, the lamb chops were a lot bigger and I felt like I got my money's worth, this time I felt like I got ripped off.

The ambiance is a little dark, which is great for couples, not my fave for a celebration. But it was quiet and enjoyable. My steak was perfect. I ordered a petit filet, medium. The side vegetables were nothing to write home about. The calamari was amazing. Dessert was shared and I got to try the creme brûlée, peanut butter pie, and chocolate ganache. I loved the peanut butter pie, very light texture and peanut buttery. The creme brûlée was excellent, perfect consistency.

I reserved on open table and they called the day of my reservation to make sure we were coming. Our server was very knowledgeable and charismatic. The support staff was quick and professional. They knew it was my mom’s birthday so they made dessert special with a sparkler. Very sweet. I will definitely be back.

The staff was very professional! Our individual waiter was very kind and made sure we were comfortable and had what we needed. This was our first time there so our waiter explained everything to us several times and was very patient with us! The food was excellent! It was a little pricey, but well worth the experience. Would I go there again? Very definitely!

As always the service and care at Russell's is outstanding and so is the food. We took my mother there for her 85th birthday and as happened many times before we were greeted by Russell and got to take a picture with him. We also noticed that there was a sign upon entering the restaurant stating happy 85th birthday Pat which was a nice touch. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone for any type of just dinner or special occasion.

Sorry to say we were disappointed, Bruschetta Bread had NO taste, dressings on salads were bland, steaks were cooked to order but again NO flavor. Sausage bread was great as always, lobster was firm and sweet, baked potato has enough shredded cheddar for 12 potatoes. As many times we have been and always enjoy seeing Russell attentive to his diners, this time was different and I question WHY?

I would have given this restaurant 5 stars if we had not encountered delays in being seated. Our reservation was for 7 pm, we were told there would be a 20 minute delay. The delay turned into 45 minutes. We were told that other guests were late because of an accident so that pushed our reservation to a later time. I could not understand how someone else's problem became mine.

My husband and I have our yearly holiday dinner at Russell's in January of each year. It is our treat to our family. We come back each year for our special dinner not only for the food but the excellent service that we are accustomed to. We know from past experiences (going back to Salvatores) that Russell maintains and highly strives for service that is compared to no other venue. Unfortunately, this year, our service did not meet our expectations.

Outstanding steaks and port chops, but sides were awful. Mr Salvatore should put his passion for serving the highest quality steaks to include the side dishes. Garlic potatoes are over whipped and are like thick paste, extremely strong flavor and every time we have been there have been luke warm. Chop salad was totally bland I think they forgot to put the dressing on but didn’t say anything as we were with friends. The Bruschetta tomato bread was the worst I’ve ever had. I don’t think he ever samples the sides when they are on a plate being served because as particular as he seems to be I think he would be quite upset. If it’s an outstanding piece of meat you want.....this is the place. That you will enjoy! Side dishes you will be very disappointed in. Beautiful restaurant, amazing detail to everything except the side dishes.

The only thing that I feel isn’t worth the price are the drinks. $8 for a simple gin and tonic is ridiculous. Sitting at the bar at 4:30 in the afternoon... isn’t that Happy Hour. Upscale restaurants and bars are not above drinks specials. Look Around Town.

Truly a five star dining experience in Western New York. Traditional steak house menu that does not stray too far into culinary excess becoming far to frequent in upscale dining. Service was top notch. Ambience was energetic without being a distraction. Vibrant bar scene. Very classy as only Russ Salvatore can do.

Always have had awesome service from the bus boy to the waiter, but not the case this visit. We went out to celebrate with husband and daughters s recent job promotion and were very disappointed in the service. We waited quite a long while after we were seated for someone to bring us menus or welcome us. We had to ask for water refills. We’re never asked if we wanted more bread. We sat with our dirty plates and glasses for a while before they were picked up. Very surprised at the lack of attention to our table. We felt forgotten. Unfortunately very disappointing since Russell’s has always been our go to.
