Our dining experience at Russell's was awesome! It made a special occasion a night to remember. Everyone was very pleased with their food, service, and atmosphere - very relaxed. Everything was cooked to perfection. I'm fond of the coffee presentation, with chocolate and whipped cream. We can't wait 'till the next special occasion!

Be there right on time. Early does not help. Very efficient work staff. Nice to see Russell working there as well. He makes the rounds and seems to greet everyone at least once. The food was well prepared and that's saying a lot with the way the various ways of preparing a steak are interpreted these days. Medium rare is medium rare. Make sure you have it grilled the way they are regularly grilled and don't ask for special preparation. It's excellent like it is. The lobster mac and cheese was like desert with the meal.

All of my visits to Russell's have been extraordinary. From being greeted by Russ himself as you check in at reservations, to the immediate seating, continuing on to a wonderfully prepared meal, it is a great experience. The meals are prepared with the best ingredients and it shows and tastes like it. This is one of the finest restaurants in the country. Highly recommended.

The food, service and ambiance were perfect as always. Steak cooked to perfection and our server Ryan was the best. I can highly recommend Russell's for any occasion, not just a special one. I have never been to New York City but I would bet Russell's can top any of the steak houses there. Oh and dont forget to ask for Ryan as your server, you will not be disappointed.

Russell's was truly one of the best dining experiences that I have had for quite some time. The staff were friendly, courteous and more than competent in all respects. The menu was such that it included " A Taste For All ". I will most definitely return and dine there again during my next visit to the area. As well, I would highly recommend that those who visit the area and enjoy fine dining, consider taking advantage of the opportunity of experiencing all that Russell's has to offer. Gary Cooper
Great choice if you are looking for that special venue to impress that special someone in your life
We will be back!
Our waiter Luke was an absolute joy -- the food and ambiance was lovely, and the entire staff makes you feel welcome. Looking forward to returning soon!
Great Food, Great Service
This was my first time here after having been to Salvatore's numerous times in the past, but not liking it the last time I was there, after it changed ownership (I'm only now in Buffalo about once every 5 years, so that was the last time visiting Salvatore's). I only have great things to say about Russell's! Essentially, it's what Salvatore's used to be with a little bit of a more modern twist. The food was superb -- I had the steak à la Russell, which I always used to get at Salvatore's -- and the servers are top notch and incredibly attentive but not at all pushy or intrusive. The atmosphere is also nice -- dim lighting with cozy tables that make the experience seem more intimate. Overall an excellent choice for dinner and worth every penny, though it must be noted that the cost is steep. Definitely going back there next time I'm in Buffalo.
Such a Great Place
We always love going to Russell's - we are guaranteed the great food, service and ambiance. We had the filet and it was done to perfection.
Good food but not worth the cost
My husband and I went out for a date night without our two young children. The food was good, but nothing spectacular. We ordered off of the dinner for two menu - prices start at $44/person and include an appetizer (soup or salad), main course and dessert. We also ordered one additional appetizer and three drinks. The total cost with tip was around $150.00. We will not be eating at Russell's again unless we have a gift certificate from someone. The food quality was not worth the cost of a weeks groceries.
Went to Russell's on June 3rd for our Anniversary and was not disappointed. Although it is rather pricey, you definitely get what you pay for. The bread with 3 different spreads is a great start. MY husband had seafood bisque which has large chunks of shrimp,lobster, crab and scallops-almost a meal in itself. We both had the Russell's filet special-14 ounce s of perfection served with prosciutto wrapped asparagus and a cheese and spinach stuffed grilled tomato. We could not even finish the filet and it was just as good the next day with our eggs! will definitely return for our next special occasion .
Our First Trip to Russell's
This was our first trip to Russell's Steaks and Chops. If we are in Buffalo again, we'll be back. We were greeted by Russell personally. He is very entertaining. We were seated at a very nice table and promptly waited on. The steaks were great as were the side items. Everyone in our group was very pleased. We plan to visit Russell's again if we have the opportunity.
Russell's is the best restaurant in the WNY area.
Russell's is my favorite restaurant. I like going there for a special occasion. The staff is so courteous and friendly. The food is out of this world. Thank you Russell Salvatore for a wonderful dining experience. I will definitely be back.

Great experience from bar to table. Very professional, great ambiance, excellent wine, steaks and other entrée options! If you are looking for that special place to dine in Buffalo entertaining clients, romantic dinner with your spouse, or family get together. It would be difficult to find a better higher end restaurant.
The food was great. Server did an excellent job with serving our meals at the right moment. Our glasses never went empty. Waiters were very observent.

First, I must say I've been to Russell's quite a bit. This was by far not the greatest food experience. I ordered the filet mignon and it was a special for the evening that included homemade tator tots and and asparagus. The steak was fabulous, however, the tator tots were burnt and literally had no flavor to them. We also ordered a side of au gratin potatoes and they were so dry and underseasoned with no "sauce" or cream to them, and just baked cheese on top. We then had them box our leftovers, and they completely never boxed up the sauce that actually came with the steak. I get if it was a small side, but this was the sauce that accompanied and was marketed with the steak. Needless to say, I was not overly impressed with the sides. And paying $9 for a side should be phenomenal. My husband and I walked out paying around $170 for a "mediocre" meal. Sure the steaks were great, but if everything wasn't that great, then it brings the whole vibe of the dinner down. I go there and pay top dollar for a top dollar meal. On a positive note, the service was fantastic and Gary was very sweet.
