I HAVE BEEN GOING TO RUSS SALVATORE'S RESTAURANTs FOR OVER 30 YEARS. RUSSELL'S STEAKS is now the premier place to go. Beats the regular Salvatore's down the street hands down.

As we drove up to the restaurant, the street marquis had our name on it for our anniversary celebration. Russ was there to greet everyone in person. Service was not rushed at all, the food was excellent and prepared magnificently. This is a great place.

We (four of us) had a very nice time. Two people got the pork chops, one the lamb, I got the Russell’s steak. All meat was cooked perfect. My baked potatoe was overly cooked on the outside but all other vegetables were perfect and delicious.
We will do it again, good food, wine and atmosphere made for a very nice evening.

Went for our wedding anniversary. We got a great table..The waiter..I think maybe his name was Mike?...was absolutely perfect. Every little request we had he found a way to make it happen..just little things like chantrelle mushrooms with the steak..no lobster in the mac n cheese.. The food was so good. We both had Ribeye steaks..brussel sprouts ..and mac n cheese.. I had beet salad..husband had French onion soup. I loved everything. What a perfect night!

Russell's has better service than any other restaurant I have ever been to. Both the waiter and bus boy were attentive to our every need. The food is fabulous. By far the best steakhouse in the Buffalo area. Food choices are fresher and more economical than other area steakhouses.

First time ever here and impressed with service and quality of food. Not a huge steak person, but I figured “when in Rome”. I was not disappointed. Food was rich but delicious! Service, attentive and kind. Great for a special occasion!

It was my second visit to Russell’s. It was superb. The menu deal for two is terrific. The filet mignon was the finest I have ever been served. The service was very good. I plan on returning. It was nice to be greeted by Russell personally. He has contributed much money and his own time to make Buffalo a great place.

Russell's is excellent, nowhere in buffalo compares to this restaurant.
One complaint, our waiter pushed more expensive brands of alcohol that were his preference, did not notice until check arrived, in fact it was almost double the charge, from drinks purchased at bar while waiting, obviously money was more important to increase the check. Beware of what they are offering, and check your check as they will not tell you the cost.

Arrived at Russell’s Steaks, Chops, and More and was greeted by the owner, Russ Salvatore. Not many owners greet their guests but Russ has been there every time I’ve dined here. Atmosphere was nice, dinner was excellent and the service was outstanding. Prices are in line with other fine dining restaurants and highly recommend dinning here.

As usual, from reservation to completion, the service was highly professional, personable and engaging. From greeting to dinner completion you feel welcomed and comfortable. Our waiter, Allen was prepared and very friendly, without being intrusive. He was versed on the menu and the historyvsnd very engaging. All the support staff was professional. The good was delicious and prepared to order. It all made for a great evening. Thank you all. You are the best in the business. I go nowhere else but "Russell's of course".

Everything about the restaurant was amazing. Service was top notch and the food was excellent! The only downside was that the waiter made a mistake when he was counting our $ and stopped us in the middle of the aisle as we were leaving and said we shorted him which was not true. He subtracted the wrong amount for the gift certificate. We even left a substantial tip. I felt he could have been more discreet especially since the error was on his part and not ours.

We come to Russell's a few times a year and the food and service are always good. Russell is usually at the podium working on seating people but this time he seemed overwhelmed, couldn't hear and was barking orders, not only at his staff but at guests as well - to hang up their coats and to stick together as a group. It was very odd and made us, as well as the people around us, uncomfortable. His female assistant, who was also seating people seems as though she would have been better off by herself in making the guests feel welcome and keeping calm, and everything under control, when things got busy. The food on this particular night was OK, the service by our server and the bus boys, outstanding as usual.

I had the Russell’s cut and it was perfect, except for the baked tomato they served with it. The tomato was huge and overshadowed the steak. Had banana cream pie for dessert and it was terrible. I think Russell could do better on the desserts.

We have been to Russell’s many times and have never been disappointed. It has become one of our favorite restaurants. Our meal was wonderful as always and the service impeccable. For this visit we had Gary as our waiter. I didn’t catch his assistants name. They were both professional yet personable. We joked with them at times and every attention to detail was taken care of. We look forward to returning in February and again in April.

We recently dined at Russell's for a friend's birthday. We had the dinner specials for 2, which gave us a wonderful variety of full course meals, for an excellent value. Our waiter Ryan was delightful and all the wait staff and employees were so efficient and friendly. Our friend received a wonderful birthday treat of chocolate covered strawberries on a birthday designed plate. She also had her birthday announced on the lighted Marquis, as you arrive. Highly recommend!
