We made a reservation far enough in advance and still were sat at a bar table. We wanted to enjoy a peaceful anniversary dinner but the noise of the patrons drinking at the bar ruined the ambience of the experience. Our server was professional and accommodating but there was no way to fix the noise we were surrounded by. For a reservation, I expected to be in the dining room and would have liked a heads up because we would’ve dined in somewhere else for a more intimate dinner away from a bar.

Days beforehand, I had scheduled a special family celebration at Russell's for 3/16/20. That day, NY's governor ordered all restaurants to close indefinitely at 8:00 p.m. that evening because of COVID-19. Was concerned that food or service might be affected but the food and service was as fantastic as ever. It was much quieter than we usually see it but not sure if it was because it was a Monday night or because of the public health crisis. However, it felt a little like we were enjoying the last meal in the dining room on the Titanic as I found one female worker in tears about the impending closing and I saw Russell standing for minutes at a time looking into the dining rooms as if trying to take it all in before the show went dark. Hope the light is back at Russell's (and everywhere) very soon.

Overall, the experience was positive, and the food was outstanding. There were some issues, which I will discuss. I am transgender and was celebrating my partner's birthday that evening. Although nearly all the staff was accomodating and friendly, including Russell himself, there was one server that was attending a table adjacent to ours that made a derogatory comment about me. It was clearly heard and there could be no mistaking the unfortunate choice of words he used to describe me. Although I was most pleased with our server and the fare, this one incident would be enough to label this restaurant lgbtqi intolerant. I will not be returning.

This was our 6-7 trip to Russell's (and staying at Salvatore's Grand Hotel) The Hotel experience is exceptional. The food is beyond great and this includes the morning breakfast buffet that was part of our room/stay.

This was our second stay on a Tuesday night. There is a special run that night that has folk dining in the lobby etc. Not sure if this is what has changed the service experience in the dining room that night but it wasn't our usual exceptional experience when it came to the actual dining experience.

Our waiter while polite was quick and not as invested in our dinner as we have enjoyed in the past. We learned about the specials/potato du jour/soup by listening to the Waiter look after the table in front of us. We had to ask for a wine list etc. He did ask what brought us there, my wife's 50th Birthday. Dinner was ordered but no questions with regards to how the meat was to be prepared. My Wife liking meat cooked Well Done, i had to ask him over shortly thereafter to request that the kitchen be told. It is a huge 14oz Pork Chop. Big difference between Med/Well Done.

The table itself wasn't bussed in the manor that we have grown to love at Russell's either. We were left with Butter tray, crumbs on the table for our entire meal. Juggling same when dessert arrived. Meal ended with the bill arriving with no pen and the waiter again moving on. Had to wait to sign up to our room.

Regardless, the 12oz NY Strip was cooked to perfection as was the well done 14 Pork Chop. Blue Cheese garlic mashed potatoes/veggies were delish.

We make the 2 hour drive and border crossing to enjoy feeling special for a night, food/table/breakfast/room were all top notch. Dinner service just left us wanting what we had so enjoyed in our past visits.

We will make the trip again in Sept...it is worth the drive.

The night was perfect celebrating our Daughters 29 Birthday. They put her name in lights on the sign outside and Her menu was personalized too. They also let us bring in a cake to celebrate her day. Russell is so gracious he made us feel so special! Great evening celebrating with family. Of course the food and drinks were fabulous!

Had a great dinner Sunday night at Russells. The waiter appreciated that my wife and I were in no hurry and wanted to enjoy out time and food. His timing was perfect as was the food, a great night all around. Would highly reccommend.

Very disappointed that 3 weeks ago we made a 7:30pm reservation and didn’t get seated until 8:20pm. Much later dinner than expected. I drank 2 1/2 beers while waiting which filled me up and I barely touched my dinner. Didn’t taste nearly as good reheated the next day.

We all enjoyed the atmosphere. The entire staff from coat check, lobby bar and waiters were very professional. They made us feel very welcome. The food was very good with generous portions. We would have liked if they explained the steak sauce was bitter and would have preferred it on the side. We would definitely return for future celebrations.

Celebrated my husband's Birthday; he is now wheelchair-bound and in nursing home, so these dinner outings are very special for him. Russell greeted us and directed us to our table. Our server Umberto (not sure of spelling) was very engaging and attentive. Food was delicious, as always...cocktails refreshing, and wine topped it all off ! We also enjoyed watching the fish in the huge saltwater aquarium in the lobby while we waited for the wheelchair van. A very enjoyable and special evening. Thanks to Russell and his fine staff!
