Was a return visit for my wife and myself. Was recommended to us by a friend and we have since recommended it to other frIends. The staff from the front desk to the waiters to the bus boys may be the most polite I have ever been around at any restaurant and I have been to quite a few. Will definitely be back for another visit in the very near future for the whole experience

Have always enjoyed going to Russell's for a nice meal and ambiance until this last visit. We met friends for cocktails at the bar one hour prior to our 7:30 pm dinner reservation. We were seated 20 minutes late, which we didn't really have an issue with, however, service was extremely slow from that point on until we were able to leave well after 10:00 pm. I felt the food was mediocre at best. Quite disappointed and most likely will not return. I have also had an issue in the past with being unable to reserve a table for two on Fridays and Saturdays between the hours of 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm. This is very bothersome since special occasions can only be celebrated at Russell's with a table for four or more. Not very romantic.

As always, the food was excellent as was the service. Only issue we had was gum under the table, which my wife accidentally found crossing her legs under the table.

My boyfriend and I are both in power wheelchairs, and we have cerebral palsy.

We arrived at the famous Russell's restaurant fifteen minutes early for our reservation and Mr. Russel himself didn't talk directly to us. Instead, he asked questions to our accompanying staff, assuming we couldn't talk for ourselves. But we can.

Then, we were seated in a corner, and from that place we couldn't see too many other people, and I believe that the restaurant was trying to hide us from view from others. The wait staff did not tell us about any of the specials or appetizers, and I overheard our waitress telling others of these specials and available appetizers.

Then, I noticed that other diners who had arrived after we had ordered received their meals before us. We finally received our food an hour after ordering.

The food was excellent, but I was very disappointed by how we were treated. This is yet another incidence of being hidden from society because we have a disability.

It is so hard just to be treated normally, like any person going out for dinner.

Very good dinner, as always. Staff and atmosphere is always fantastic. I have always given 5 stars but feel the filet mignon and choc cake dessert we got from the 45 menu was noticeably smaller. It's definitely worth the 6 dollar upgrade to 10 ounces, but don't think ours was anywhere near the 8 ounces it used to be.

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.

Great Food with Great Service and never leave disappointed. Russell's is the place to take that special someone in your life. The staff treats you as if you were the only customer in the restaurant. Service was well-timed and friendly, wines were affordable. Our server Paul was attentive but not annoying. Bravo Russell's, our Guests were celebrating 51 years of marriage and we 20 years of friendship.

Absolutely the best dinner out in a long time. Our waiter Cotey was the best. Polite, new all about the food, timing was perfect from start to finish.

Drinks were made perfectly. My medium rare filet was perfect and flavorful. Baked potato had a nice crisp skin, as I like it.

Me Salvatore stopped by to check on things too.

Excellent experience. We will return!

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.

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!
