Dined with friends at this cozy, farm-to-table American bistro. Excellent house-made pastas, seafood, chicken, and meats. Food is high quality, service was unobtrusive and helpful, and the place has a great vibe. Glad to have it in our neighborhood.
Outstanding farm-to-table BYOB.
Portion sizes are perfect. Our meal was delicious; we'll be back!
We drove from Lancaster, PA just to have Saturday brunch at Russett. It was our anniversary and we wanted a special place to celebrate. And Rissett was special indeed .... very cozy, quiet, atmospheric, fantastic service and wonderful, tasty, delicious food! Their BYOB policy also allowed us to bring along a favorite Pinot Noir, so our celebration was quite a success! We’ll definitely visit again, as well as recommend it to others.....
Great food! Scallops were delicious! Ravioli app was very tasty but small. Bread was just ok, nothing special.
We went to this restaurant to celebrate our anniversary. The hostess was very inappropriately dressed, I was under the impression it was a fine dining establishment, not a night club. The server was there to turn and burn. He dropped the bread on the table without a word and turned to another table. It was good bread, I would have liked to know what kind it was. Overall I was hoping for more hospitality. The food was rustic and different. The sauces were the best part of each dish. My entrees first discriptor was Brussels sprouts, I found 2 leaves, no more.. very disappointed.
We always enjoy dinner at Russet.
Freshly prepared food. Interesting choices.
Our second time there and just as great as the first!
The atmosphere was perfect for a date night. The dining room was in the first floor of a converted brownstone and was lovely. The appetizers were very good. My husband had gnocchi and I had homemade spaghetti with chicken and mushrooms. Both were excellent and had great flavors. The apps were much better than the entrees. I had lamb chops and my husband had roast chicken which looked like fancy feast cat food. The lambs chops were cooked perfectly but the flavor was pretty plain. They came with some kind of potato cake which I did not like and mushy, flavorless brussel sprouts. It was more expensive than other BYOBs in the city as well.
It was a rainy day. Our timing was post brunch rush. Other than a loudly screaming child, all was really excellent! After telling is the brunch special cheddar scones were sold out, our server returned to say freshly-baked ones were just pulled from the oven! YUM! When I started with a salad, the server offered that I could switch out my now superfluous side-salad on my entree for potatoes or cheesy grits! YUM! All the right moves!
We just had one of the best meals we've ever had. We started with the cheese plate, with three local cheeses, all fantastic. Then we had gnocchi with a mushroom sauce and a salad next; the gnocchi were amazing and the salad was deliciously dressed. For entrees we had wild striped bass with jerusalem artichokes, and arctic char with some kind of greens, beets, and some citrus. Both were perfectly cooked and spectacular. Finally we had a little chocolate cake of some kind--it was excellent.
Ordered appetizers, entrees and desserts and everything was lukewarm and portions were too small for the price. Even seemed like a ripoff compared to New York pricing. Disappointed.
I loved the atmosphere. The food was creative and delicious. We will definitely be back.
Delightful find serving gourmet food. Set in a row house converted into a restaurant. Well worth returning.
In the past I’ve had a wonderful experiences at Russet, the atmosphere is usually perfect for an intimate date night. However on this evening the restaurant booked 3 large groups simultaneously and the noise levels were extremely uncomfortable in the small space.
Grilled rouget, winter greens, veal shoulder, coffee turtle sundae. All perfectly prepared and beautifully served. As always, a warm and wonderful experience.
