We dined tonight for my daughter's birthday. Mr. Salvatore and his team did a fantastic job!
Another memorable evening
Despite being over an hour away, Russells is our "go to" place for special occasions, this one being our wedding anniversary. Although we had requested our "regular" server Andrew, he was already taking care of several large parties. Instead, Allen A took care of us, and we were very impressed. Service was exceptional, even vanishingly discreet. He was responsive to the smallest detail, but there was none of the cosseting one typically encounters at upscale restaurants like this. The food was elegant and amazing. Allen was attentive, knowledgeable, and polished. The meal was perfectly paced and Allen seemed to appear whenever we needed something. A first-class experience all the way!!
Enjoyable dining experience
A very nice restaurant to celebrate any occasion. Great food, excellent service. Even the owner interacts with all of his customers making sure all the meals are done to your satisfaction.

My husband and I dine in and spend the night at Russell's for any occasion because we just love everything about it. I highly recommend everyone to try it at least once cause you will keep coming back!
The dinner was great, the atmosphere and the ambience was perfect. The staff and service were incredible. We both had filet(s) and they were cooked to perfection! The timing was perfectly spaced between salad and entrees and dessert. I highly recommend Russel's to anyone looking for a great dining experience.

Great diversity of menu choices. Fine dining at its finest.
We'd heard so many wonderful things about Russells but we were so disappointed in the food. The steak should have been sent back because it was too well done. The apple crisp was way too sweet.

My wife and I had our 20th anniversary dinner on Wednesday, May 18th. I could write paragraphs about the experiences we have had at Russell's, but it is solid every single time. Always well taken care of, and the food is always outstanding. Can't miss dinner location.

I wish i could remember our servers name. Great guy, very helpful and knowledgeable. Our first time there was a great experience and food was delicious.
Superb service from the first step in the door. Our meal was delicious and server could not be any better! Thank you so much!!
another good dinner... mostly
We've had dinner at Russell's many times. Plenty of open parking-no valet. Coat room. Hostess gives you an alert that signals when your reservation is ready. Russell himself was there ... as pretty much always. Drinks are good but my scotch had way too much ice and my wife's mixed drink was not as good other times/places. $21 for Dewar's and mixed drink at the bar. Meal was fine except the service dipped -- had to ask for steak knives, water glass ran empty even though bus boy was at the table but missed it twice. Waiter was absent at end of meal. Not sufficiently attentive, and a bit too gabby for our taste. Note: Only difference between Steak Russell and filet is that the former includes mushrooms. Steak Russell used to be three filet medallions but it was reduced to two and now just a regular size filet.

Wonderful as always. Service is exceptional! The filet was delicious. We will come again
Our waiter Luke was very accommodating and made my Mother's Mothers Day very enjoyable. She has an odd sense of humor and he didn't miss a beat. Food was perfect and the wait staff was beyond excellent. Thank you so much for the special experience!! I will bring her back next year if I don't find a reason before then.
Great dining experience
Elegant dining. Outstanding food, excellent attentive service, very good wines, good selection of entrees , pricey but worth it
One of WNY's finest, if you're in the mood for a prime steak and great atmosphere look no further. Enjoy....
Another fantastic experience
Russell's has done it again - another wonderful dining experience. Every element is top notch - service, food, environment. It is the first place I look to when planning a special evening. We received the table that we requested and our server was excellent. Five star!
Awesome service and atmosphere.
Our server was excellent. The restaurant was very quiet and allowed for conversation which is definitely not the norm at most places . Our waitress was very good and attentive and the attention to detail (constant filling our water, scraping the table cloth when we were done with dinner) did not go unnoticed . We even got a free chocolate covered strawberry for our 14th anniversary but my wife could not enjoy it even though we mentioned with our reservation that she was allergic to strawberries.

The entire experience was very enjoyable, from the entrance to the finish of dinner. Our waiter and the wait staff were very polite and on top of everything.
Food and service both excellent. Very comfortable atmosphere and ambiance. Would highly recommend this gem.
Western New York's most elegante restaurant
Food was very good, waiter was excellent. Sea food appetizer for two (around $65) was the hit of our meal. Worth every penny. Our entrees were very good & priced fairly.
Outstanding food and service.
Outstanding food and service.
I booked a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday. The atmosphere was so relaxing and romantic. The bar was relaxing yet visually stimulating. The service was timely and friendly. We got the rack of lamb and filet minion and both melted in your mouth. We shared an unforgettable garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. Everything tastes amazing!
We celebrated a birthday and thoroughly enjoyed our evening. Service was outstanding and the food was good. On our previous visits the food was outstanding, but this time our steaks was well done instead of medium. This did not spoil our evening and we will return in future as this is our favorite restaurant. Unfortunately, after asking on our many visits for non-milk to go with tea, coffee etc they don't provide this service. We don't understand why this is not available?
14 oz filet was over cooked and somewhat tough. Nowhere near in value to the $49 price tag.
We had a great experience and meal at Russell's. The food and service were top notch. We were celebrating our 15th anniversary and the experience did not disappoint. Thank you for making our evening memorable!
Salad, etc. should be served on a cold plate and chilled. The Garlic Mashed potatoes shouldn't be served with a foodservice spoon, but an appropriate serving spoon. The Sweet potato should be served with butter on the side and not be over done. Also the gravy that comes with the garlic mashed potatoes should be served with the correct gravy, not tan gravy with steak. The Demi glaze needs taste, The Knorr brand has flavor (this wasn't) I've been in the industry for over 30 years so I know when things aren't correct. This is a fine dining experience so that's what I expected. Will go back again.
Thank You Russell's
Was our 20th wedding anniversary so I made reservations through OpenTable. Reservation went smoothly, even the area asking for anything special. I literally put "20th wedding anniversary" and Russell's did the rest. As we pulled up to the restaurant, a Happy Anniversary display flashed on their outdoor sign, totally unexpected. Dinner was great, selecting off the dinner for two menu. Then when desserts were served, they came out with a sparkler display and the desserts were surounded by "Happy 20th Anniversary!" hand written on the plate. Again, totally unexpected. Staff and servers were awesome and Russ himself, was greeting at the door, wishing us a happy anniversary too. Well done Russels, all the right touches! Thank you.
I had the steak oscar ( I think that is what it was called) . The meat was dry and tasteless and the lobster was so dried up I had a difficult time eating it. I have eaten here before and enjoyed the food, but this time was very bad.
Russells truly earned its status as one of the top 100 steakhouses in the country! Our meal was fantastic !
Went for my wifes B-Day 4th time there
Was our 4th time going we will be back in a few MOnths great lil get away for wife and I and awsome food!!!
Another outstanding visit!
Our "regular" server Andrew was slammed with a huge party, so Michael took care of us instead. It was another outstanding visit. From the very start he made us feel like valued and welcomed guests. His service was prompt, strong and professional, and he continually checked on us throughout our dinner. The food, as always, was top-notch. The pacing was excellent and we never felt rushed at any time. All in all, another truly superb and memorable evening.
Excellent food ,fantastic experience. The employees were so nice and friendly and knowledgeable .
