And every room is a beautiful suit . What more could anyone ask for. Thank you Russell for staying in the business with this beautiful new hotel restaurant and bar... More

Fabulous Filets served here! Russ Salvatore greets you personally each night. ( He resides in the attached Hotel!). Very attentive waiter staff. Adjoining cocktail lounge is very cozy, accommodating and relaxing. Made our anniversary dinner special! If I had to rate; in the top 3 restaurants in Buffalo area ( and not far from the airport!)

Went here on a Tuesday evening with 6 Co Workers. We were seated quickly and placed our orders about a half hour later. I ordered a rare Fillet mIgnon and three others at my table ordered a Medium Fillet Mignon. Mine came out of the Kitchen the most well done...But it was tasty. We spent 3 hours there, we probably...

We went to the $15 Tuesday night special. The waiter was amazing...great bar drinks and the food was well worth the pricing. We understood we would sit in the lobby instead of the main dining area but hey, what the heck--we were getting a bargain meal. The table was well set up and we felt the service was impeccable.

We have been to this restaurant many times, sometimes for a special occasion, sometimes just because. We decided to do a weekend getaway to celebrate our 40th anniversary a little early. Our room was beautiful, dinner was amazing , service was wonderful! Russell greeted us when we arrived for our dinner at 6 p.m. He was busy greeting guests all... More

I've been there twice for business dinners. They offer private dining rooms. The steaks are very good--and priced accordingly. The decor is dark and a bit elaborate. The wine list is good. Best for a splurge or business dinner.

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.
