This was our 5th visit to Russell’s and we continue to have a perfect evening with each visit. From the first greeting (each time we have been there, Russell has been at the desk welcoming guests and choosing their tables), through the warmth, yet professionalism, of the servers, to the delicious, perfectly prepared dinners we have had, we have nothing but the highest praise for this restaurant. There are few fine dining establishments that get EVERYTHING right, EVERY time, but Russell’s certainly does! Don’t miss Russell’s Mussels, the Chopped Salad, the Seared Ahi Tuna, or the Steak Oscar. Heaven! Thanks once more, Russell, and I STILL want your car!!! :-) More
