Wonderful traditional "chop house" decor, impeccable waitstaff, a menu that is traditional and perfection - for a special night out or a stopover before boarding your flight at BUF, this is an IDEAL place to have dinner and spend the night too. Highly recommend Russell's Steaks at Salvatore's Grand hotel.

My wife and I enjoyed our Steak Ala Russell dinner for two. Fillets were done as requested, server checked with us within two minutes of delivering the steaks to ensure they were done to our satisfaction. Great food, Jeremy our server was excellent, and the atmosphere was top notch. We have been here multiple times before, always a great meal.

Wanted to celebrate son's 13th bday with his best friend so we decided to go to Russell's where we had dined several other times in the dining room for several family occasions. We were told that we were not welcome at the 5 o'clock Tuesday special because no children allowed. Very disappointed and embarrassed to have been told we had... More

The little Greek guy on Elmwood says "I do it well, very well." Well this little "spaghetti bender" on Transit captains a ship that does it superbly. Russ Salvatore at 85 years young works the door, the floor and over sees a magnificent restaurant. The staff its totally professional, well trained, polite and knowledgable. The food was wonderful, cooked precisely... More

We ordered the pork chop and the small fillet. They were cooked to perfection and were excellent cuts of meat. I only wish that we hadn't ordered the appetizers as we were too full by the time the meat came.

OK Russel's needs no more compliments on their food. I'll do it anyway. The steak was excellent but the excellent steak with Russel's topping was not the best that Russel had to offer. My wife had the Chilean Sea bass; now that was really prepared well with the crusted cheese topping. This was our wedding anniversary and we both wanted... More
