Excellent food, service and atmosphere. Was at least 7 years ago we were there on a marriage retreat with a group and really couldn't remember the details.
This time was just Hubby and I and we enjoyed everything thoroughly.
Thank You Russell Salvatore for paying attention to the details!!!

Russell's puts the "fine" in fine dining. From start to finish, this restauranteur celebrates flavorful food that is served with flair and efficiency. Tantalizing steaks, luscious seafood offerings...you name it, it's all top notch. If you can, save room for dessert...it does not disappoint. The dining area has several charming candlelit nooks for tables for two that enhance a romantic evening and private conversation. Check the menu...you may save $$ by choosing the "dining for two" option, and be amazed at all you get (four courses) for the price of $45/ person. Also, consider an overnight stay at Russell's adjoining hotel which can be packaged to include a dinner rate/coupon that is an outstanding deal. Russell's treats you like royalty!!

The food and Service was great, however I had a reservation and it was my anniversary and the table was not in the best spot for our intimate privacy! We should have been given priority seating over the 1st come 1st serve customers!

Everything was fantastic. My wife & I both had the signature strip steaks and they were delicious. A little out of our price range for a regular stop but for a special occasion I highly recommend Russell's

Excellent dinner for two, filet and lobster tail, superior service, comfortable seating. The lobby and bar area was crowded and noisy with extra dinner tables but where we were seated was beautiful, cozy and private. Always 5* at Russell's.

Russell's is a perfectly-oiled machine. Everyone, and I mean everyone, whom we encountered there, from the Maitre D' through the section captain, the bus boy, and our waiter, Nick, was hospitality personified. Russell himself greeted us at the reservation stand, and, as he did the last time we were there, treated us as though we were the only important people in his life, an extremely difficult thing to do when you have been in the business as long as he has. The whole place, simply put, "gets it". When the client is there, it's "Showtime". Congratulations on bringing the public such an outstanding oasis, Russell - you are the best! And PS - I want your car. :-)

The service is always excellent, very professional. The steaks are impeccable. Cooked too perfection everytime we eat here. Usually 6 times per year.
We always stay in the royal suite after dinner. Room is awesome. Breakfast is also great in the morning

We have been to Russell's several times and it never disappoints! The food is fabulous and it's so nice being greeted by the owner.
On this visit, my husband and I were celebrating our anniversary. I accidentally knocked over a glass of wine and the waiter immediately replaced it at no charge.
They acknowledged our anniversary.
It's great to go to a place with such good food and feel like you are important to them. Some upscale restaurants have a very haughty atmosphere, but not Russell's! They make you feel welcome while retaining a very high standard.
We will go back!

Waiter (Bruce) guided my wife through gluten free options (knowledgable). Service attentive, not rushed. The meal was delicious. We were not rcomfortable, as a table of 2, to be on a raised platform facing the dining room and other diners in the anbreviated booths along the wall. We prefer to face each other. We would ask for a table on the main floor next time.

This restaurant is a throw back to another time...loaded with class from start to finish. Mr. Salvatore still greets his customers. Food is delicious and you can actually sit and enjoy a conversation. The special booths for 2 make for a nice anniversary celebration or date. Highly recommend Russell's!!

Russell's does it right. From the ambiance to the exceptional service to the outstanding food. In the dozens of times I've been to Russell's, I've never had a bad experience. Highly recommended for special occasions, a nice relaxing dinner, or a pleasant bar atmosphere without the noise and bustle.
