Nice dining experience overall but probably would not go back because of the cost, nearly $100 a person with two drinks.

We've been visiting Vail for many years and have always enjoyed dining at Russell's. The steaks are usually cooked to our preference and are juicy and delicious. We were disappointed on our last visit, unfortunately. Both of our steaks were not cooked to our preference, mine was more well done than I expected and was tasty but not very juicy. My husband's steak was very rare and not as thick as he was accustomed to. They were very accommodating and cooked it to medium rare, but we both felt a little let down. The staff were great, wine excellent, etc. Hopefully, it was just an off night. We will definitely return again!

There were 4 of us having dinner. The entrees ranged from $45.00 to $55.00 each so the bill exceeded $200.00. What was upsetting was when asked for a sprite we received a glass that was full of ice with maybe two sips of sprite. Each time they refilled the glass we did not realize they were charging us $2.50 each refill until we go the bill. We will definitely NOT go back there. What a way to spoil a meal! Very petty of them considering the prices they charged for the food.

Great food. Nice atmosphere in a nice ski town. Our server was so nice but she forgot one of our side dishes and my husbands meal came out much later than the kids meals and apps but other than that it was a great experience and will be coming back for sure!

We have been going to Russell's for over 20 years and visit every time we go to Vail. It has become a tradition for our family. It never disappoints. The blackened Salmon is wonderful as are the steaks. But then there are the baby back ribs. If you really want to go all out, order the scalloped potato side dish. It is cheesy and truly sinful. This restaurant works equally for a romantic night out (ask for a table for two on Bridge Street) or for great family fun.

Food and ambiance was satisfactory. Next to us there was a very loud table--no fault of the restaurant. Worst was our server. He was a robot with no personality / warmth. That lacking spirit of friendliness brings the entire experience down.

Service was top notch. We were not rushed at all. We enjoyed wine prior to ordering. They split a spinach salad and both had steaks, one rib eye and the other tenderloin - could to perfection. They were served with potatoes one mashed and the other scalloped, and brocolli, all were scrumptious. Broccoli had that perfect crunch. Their desert was to die for.

Only downside was a table across the room that had an load onlivous women. Thank God she left after 15 minutes. Tough call on mgmt when to make call to deal with that type of situation.

We will definitely dine here again !

We love Russell’s and enjoy it several evenings during our annual trip to Vail. I wish they could figure out a way to keep the noise level under control. They tried successfully to find us their most quiet spot, and we were so grateful., but it was still a challenge to hear the co versatile at the table sometimes. Their menu is so perfect. If you aren’t real hungry, the small plates selections are superb!

2 of three entrees were OK, not bad but also not exceptional.
The seafood of the day was overcooked, outer layer was tough and actually tasted like burnt toast. For an entree approaching $50, very disappointing.

I was pleased to find a grouper “special” on the menu the evening we dined at Russell’s. My dining partners had steak filets. All agreed the steaks were perfect, the wine (Franscian Cabernet) was excellent and our server, Erin, was outstanding.
The one negative was that our reservation was for 7:45 but we were not seated until almost 30 minutes later.
