Russell's Steaks, Chops, and More Ratings and Reviews

This was our first time at Russell's and being that it was our 30th Anniversary, it was perfect. Seating at the intimate table for two was beautiful. Christopher, our server was very attentive and really took care of us. The food was delicious, we had the dinner for two, upgrading it to the lobster tails and a wonderful bottle of wine. Thank you for making this anniversary a memorable one.

We could not have been happier with our experience. When I made reservation the morning of our dinner, I placed a simple note in the reservation request that it was our 35th Anniversary Dinner. I didn't think much of it after that.
Imagine the surprise and delight for both my wife and I when we saw "Happy 35th Anniversary Mr. & Mrs. H...." in lights on your sign on Transit Road! Perfect touch, great attention to detail.
Honestly, it was the most I have ever spent on a meal for 2 people, and it was worth every penny. Service was excellent, and the food was outstanding. I usually think lobster is "OK" ( I prefer my steak!) but I had the best lobster tail I have ever had!
Then to top things off, when Humberto brought our dessert, instead of 2 dishes of cheesecake, it was 1 large platter with 2 servings, a sparkler and "Happy Anniversary" written on the platter in the cheesecake drizzle sauce.
All the little extra's from a simple note on the reservation request. Well done.
I'm glad I had the chance to catch Mr. Salvatore on the way out to tell him how Russell's made it a very special Anniversary Dinner.
We've stayed at the hotel, had the dinner packages before and never been disappointed. But this time Russell's made it one to remember.
Thanks so very much!

The dinner I had at Russell's was a night I will never forget as it was the night that my boyfriend proposed to me. We ate from the dinner for two menu and just before dessert came out the manager of the restaurant placed a covered platter in front of me. He removed the lid and on the plate was a small wrapped box and my boyfriend got down on one knee and asked for my hand in marriage. The staff of the restaurant was incredibly excited to help my fiancé plan out the perfect proposal and they even took pictures for us as it happened. I have been to Russell's before and the food and experience were both spectacular, but this last visit exceeded all of my expectations of the evening.

this is the second time we were dining at Russell's The food never disappoints although it was our 10th wedding anniversary Our names were on the light up sign which was very cute. Our table was in back corner room not very romantic. We had several questions about the dinner for two menu which our waiter answered . We were not thrilled when we received our check because after our numerous questions we were not advised that the up charge for a single lobster tail was $54 not the $ 10 as indicated on the menu

SIMPLY AMAZING... Best steakhouse in the Entire US, and Trust me I eat in them all.... Russell, the owner is always there greeting you, his Matre'D staff is out of this world and the servers, especially Alan, are Great. FOOD, well, steak melts in your mouth tender, lobster mac and cheese is the best ever, Dinner for 2 menus, cannot beat the price, desserts top notch, fish and apps, best ever. What Can I say except best in the COUNTRY... I would fly there, just to eat there and fly home.
cant wait until next time, FAN FAVORITE for sure.

We recently had an anniversary and wanted to try Russell's Steak and Chops for dinner. We went on a weekday and there was still a decent crowd. We were seated promptly and quality of service was outstanding and attentive throughout. Our steaks were cooked to a perfect medium-rare and my osso bucco was well worth it. Wine list had excellent choices at many price ranges. One area that could be improved upon was the Bernaise Sauce. My wife and son ordered the Filet Neptune and Filet Oscar and the sauce was almost without taste. No hints of vinegar or tarragon, just a creamy yellow roux. It may seem trivial, but the sauce is what makes these dishes special. Our desserts were well-presented and worth ordering.

Our entire experience was beyond our expectations, from the cordial greeting by Russ himself, to the wonderful desserts at the end of our sumptuous meal. The filets were seasoned and grilled to perfection. Service was very professional and efficient. The atmosphere comfortable and romantic, perfect for a special anniversary. This was the ultimate dining experience.

I was looking forward to this but ended very disappointed. We made reservations 4 weeks ago to get a decent Saturday night time slot, 6:45, then had to wait 10 minutes for a table. We were seated and having our drink order taken when the Maitre'd returned to tell us the table where we were seated by him was actually reserved for someone else. So we moved to another equally nice table.
The waiter was very good, nice guy and efficient. But I ordered my steak Pittsburgh (charred on the outside) but specified twice that I wanted it medium rare on the inside. And the waiter asked if I wanted to add onions or blue cheese to the steak. I said, sure add some blue cheese. The ribeye came Pittsburgh, but very rare, and was grossly smothered in blue cheese. I scraped most the blue cheese hunk off, and ate half of the flavorless steak (should have sent it back to be cooked more). My dog loved the other half. $200 later, I will not return.

Russell ' s was amazing! We took our 11 year old grand daughter to celebrate, and she was so excited. Mr. Russell Salvatore sang happy birthday to her, her filet was amazing and the kiddie cocktails were awesome. She took pictures of everything! Thank you for this experience!

It lives up to it's reputation. Service is great, just what you would expect at a high end restaurant. The only complaint I have was that the food was warm not hot and the cappuccino and coffee was also warm. The steak was excellent and would melt in you mouth. Overall excellent.

Open table was an easy way to make a reservation and that is the only 2nd time we used this service. Russell's has the finest food in taste and variety. we never feel rushed as we enjoy each course. The desserts choices are also numerous and delicious. We wish the prices were a little lower so we could go there more often

My girlfriend and I came to Russels 3 years ago for the first time on our 1 year anniversary. We have gone to other high class restaurants in the general area before and thought to try Russels as we both have a taste for great food. Immediately after entering the front door we were amazed by the grand allure of the front lobby.
After being seated, we took note of the excellent service from the excellent waiters at not only our table, but the others as well. It was the small details like cleaning the table with a blade, or pouring a coffee from far above the cup that won us over. We knew we were in for a treat.
The entire meal, without exaggeration was the best meal either of us has ever had. I could go on about the taste of each course of our meal but words truely do no justice for it. Like I tell everyone I recommend, you just have to try it.
Coming from an Italian family, this restaurant brings back some of the good Italian values that we pride ourselves in. Good food and good class. Everything about Russels breathes quality and it really shows. Since our first time coming at our 1 year anniversary, we have made it tradition to come for each anniversary. We have now been here 3 times and each time we still have the same grand experience as the firsts. We look forward to seeing you soon

This is our favorite restaurant. We have dined there many times and can honestly say we have never had a bad meal or disappointed in the quality, portion or variety of selections to choose from. The serve is top of the line, they are very professional and go beyond expectations to make your dining experience something to talk about. I always recommend this restaurant to everyone I know and come home with a handful of brochures to pass out to friends.

The professionalism of the staff is the first thing you notice. Their attentiveness goes above and beyond. The food is fantastic and the ambience is amazing. I have eaten here on numerous occasions and I have never been disappointed. I would and have recommended this restaurant to my friends and I have no reservations about doing so. I know without a doubt that they will be pleased when they dine here.

We celebrated our 31st anniversary at Russell's. We were hoping for special evening for our special event and Russell's did not disappoint. The food and our waiter Bruce were both excellent. The dinner for two with a nice bottle of wine is the best deal in Western New York. We won't wait another 31 years to go back that's for sure.
