"Menu is physically, as well as intellectually challenging; many unfamiliar words requiring extensive exchanges with waiters. Lighting is too dim to read the menu easily. Stingy bread portions requiring requests for more. After the struggle is over and one is exhausted, one can enjoy delicious dishes."

"We came during restaurant week so there was a limited menu. The homemade ravioli, the bronzino, and the duck could not have been any better. For dessert the budino was nice but not as spectacular as the appetizer and main courses."

"Food was excellent, but there was a major communication gap regarding the menu and cost.
There was an extra charge for the duck breast which was not noted on the menu or by the waiter until it became obvious when the bill arrived

"Lesson for restaurants if you are not going to give value do not do restaurant week. Ridiculous small portion of fish and waiter who was critical for not eating the skin was amazing. We have had mixed experiences with this restaurant. This will be our final visit."

"Took out of town guests to a favorite, Russet, and was not disappointed. My friends, from NYC and from Boston, were so very impressed with the meal, ambiance and service. I was again, very impressed. Russet will continue to be a favorite for me."

"My guest and I use the Restaurant Week fixed price outings as a way to sample new restaurants at a known price point. We realize that menus are limited ... usually 3 appetizers and 3 entrees from which to choose. In the case of Russet, there were 4 appetizers and 4 entrees. Unfortunately, 2 of the 4 in each course had "supplement"al charges if you chose them, from $5 to $15. This did not sit well with us."

"Russett is a "city" gem and an experience that needs to be shared by all. The ambiance brings a sophisticated comfort to the senses which only adds to the enjoyment of the meal. The homemade ravioli melts in your mouth and the steak makes you glad that you are not a vegetarian! Service was friendly and approachable. Can't wait to go back to try another selection of entrees. We know that we will not be disappointed!"

"Our evening started early in the back room which was very quiet The noise level did rise as we were finishing The food was terrific The spec appetizer was enjoyed by all. Those brave enough to try the whole fish head were pleased by the moist fish and crispy skin. The polenta and mushroom entree and the beef braise were delicious. We were out in time for the Orchestra and will return."

"I was excited to finally get a reservation at Russet and was extremely disappointed in my experience there. The service was extremely slow and unfriendly. It took almost 20 minutes for us to even have a waiter greet us at our table.
The food was amazing but the portions were extremely small. I didn't see the value in spending $30 for an entree that was very tiny. I don't plan on coming back again to Russet."

"We had high expectations but were quite disappointed. A corn-filled pasta was undercooked and mostly without flavor. A bolognese was better but still underwhelming. A main-course mushroom dish looked like mush. Service could have been much better-- our water and wine glasses went unfilled for most of the meal. We would not return."

"Just down the street from the Kimmel, this BYOB is perfectly located and offers a great pre-show/concert dinner. Small, locally sourced menu changes frequently. The appetizers were very good. The beet salad was colorful and tasty, and the baby swiss chard tender. The lamb pappardelle pasta appetizer was a little disappointing--pasta was good but the sauce was a bit salty, thin on lamb and lacked some oomph. The main courses more than made up for that, though. Fish (sea bass) was perfectly prepared, fresh, and among the best fish I've tasted in a while. The veal was tender, medium rare, ample and splendid. Dinner for two with first course, second course and 1 shared dessert ran us about $100 with tip, which is a little higher than I expected for a byob (glad we didn't have a wine tab!) but the splendid main courses make me want to go back for more!! Service was fine, too."

"I took four friends for an early dinner and meeting and everyone was blown away by the high standards of cuisine and service. Although the menu choices look limited, there was so much to choose from and we each enjoyed every bite. The highlight of the menu is the fish: cooked to perfection and accompanied by a simple yet tasty sauce. It's also quiet, a nice change from so many clanging, loud restaurants in the area."

"We visit Philly quite often and had few brunches here. Up until today's brunch it was our favorite place in Philly for brunch. Not this time. The food didn't have the same delicious taste as before and was unremarkable, the service was lame, VERY slow and indifferent, and the value was poor for the experience we've got.
Previously they had two wonderful waitresses with great attitude and personalities and what a difference it made. We are sorry to say that, but it was the last brunch in Russet for us.
