REVIEWS OF The Russell IN Kansas

Amy Schmidt

Went here for a work lunch, loved it so much I came back a couple weeks later with my mom. Very cool atmosphere and amazing food. I got the BLT both times and was very happy.

Casey Huggins

Just a few choices. They do them very well. Also, the homemade desserts are a must. My third visit. I have become a loyal customer.

Colby Simpson

Austin Fields

Food and service was excellent. There were 3 things on the menu that I wanted so I will just have to go back. The Saturday brunch options were great and I thought it was fairly priced.

Milton Gillespie

Great food. Fun experience. Check them out You'll be glad you did

Macy Pruitt


Angela Muir

What a gorgeous restaurant! I went for lunch with my husband today and I just fell in love with the gorgeous dining room, the rustic decor and the delicious food. I enjoyed the brioche chicken sandwich, my husband had the steak entree and we shared a cookie. Everything was delicious. I can't wait to go back!

Edward Straley

Great fine in Kansas City Wonderful atmosphere, sort of homey. Great concept only open for breakfast, lunch and brunch on Saturday. Food was excellent, we had a loaded Bloody Mary and Eggs Benedict, on Saturday. Bloody's we're very good, slight taste of spice...just right and loaded with shrimp, bacon and celery. Very good Eggs Benedict, not your average concoction just a little bit of a twist. Check out their bakery items.

Kevin Curtin

Delicious food with an eclectic twist. They cook over an open fire and the setting is old fashioned but hip and cool. Service is great. People are genuinely happy to be there.

Waldo Honey

Very tasty salads and sandwiches, and a cozy atmosphere.

Nancy Steinacker

I've always have wonderful lunches at The Russell. Very tasty salads and sandwiches with local produce. Many vegetarian options. Beautiful, big cookies.

Gretchen Leigh Willson

Gorgeous atmosphere, masterfully prepared dishes and very pleasant staff!

Tom Long

I went to The Russell for the first time shortly after Christmas. Absolutely loved it, as did everyone in our group. The restaurant has a great aesthetic, with cool and quirky decorations that make it more interesting than your average lunch spot. The food is also much more interesting! I got the burger with roasted vegetables on the side. Top notch, and so nice to have that option instead of chips. Others raved about the salads and the tacos. They also had a nice selection of drinks and pastries. The service was super friendly and efficient. Can't wait to go back!

Bill Johnson

Jonathan Tharp

Isaac Brethour

Got the steak and eggs, partner got the BLT. Both were very good and there was a lot on the plate. A little over priced but you’re definitely paying for great quality here. Looking forward to getting the biscuits and gravy next time!

Michelle M

Very good food and reasonable portion size. The desserts are homemade and amazing.

Elise Valenti

We hosted a company party at The Russell last week. The food, atmosphere and service were impeccable. Heather was a breeze to work with. I highly recommend and can't wait to have an excuse to host an event here again!

Brandon Latson

Visiting from Atlanta and was told The Russell was a must try. Glad I did. I've never had anything like it. 10 stars. I do think Beyond Meat should be an advertised item and available to substitute for all protein.

Hyeran Jo

Everything was so fresh and great. I had a side salad and a grilled salmon toast. The salad was not so boring like other restaurants. The salmon toast was tasty and filling. The owner and the staffs were very nice. All in all, I enjoyed my lunch. I wanna go back to try some other dishes and the desserts!!

steve smirnes

great new casual eatery

Robert Hazelwood

I had the quinoa salad with salmon. The greens and quinoa were fantastic though the salmon was overcooked. I wasn't too worried though as this was the second day they were open. I will definitely go back as my dining companion had the tenderloin and it looked great so I will have that on my next visit.

Soheyla Stammann

What a great place. I loved our lunch! Fresh and delicious food.

Mara Grigsby

Hands down my favorite place to eat in Kansas City, and that's saying a lot since we have so many great restaurants. The food tastes like it came straight from your home kitchen, without a bunch of added preservatives and bad oils. I never feel bad after eating here. Everything I have eaten is here amazingly good and well worth the price tag. I also love the atmosphere. Very grateful for this place! They are doing it right!

Chris Karlin

Great service and delicious food!

Brian Ngo

The food was seasoned well. You got your food in a reasonable amount of time even when they are busy.

I had the salmon avocado toast for $12. It was exactly what I make at home all the time, but it was only 1 pc. and a bag of chips. I was a little sad at the proportion versus the price of this entree. Esp. when I saw the value of my husbands meal. He got the sumac steak which was a huge proportion for $15. Lots of steak on it! The food is definitely prepared really well! I definitely just thought my lunch was overpriced for what I got.

Blake Hodges

Maddie Steele

Hernán Matías Sito

Delicious food. The place to go in Kc for yummy food.

Jenny Chadwick

The BEST brunch and cafe ever in Midtown! Absolutely delicious! Homemade fresh food and baked goods. Divine salads and sandwiches, burgers, cocktails, and coffee. We will 100% be here again!

leah Oladitan

Great food, nice atmosphere. They were trialing a new cucumber jalepeno water and let us taste test some granola bars for them Looking forward to going back

Mario Reyes

Delicious! Great service, great food, nice ambiance.

Moe Butler

We ate here for the first time today for brunch, and the food is amazing. We ordered the andouille sausage, shrimp and cheese grits with peppers and onions. The Steak and Eggs and The waffle with bacon. The price for the food was affordable. The amount of food you get for the price makes the trip, meal and spending the money well worth it. The staff was amazingly friendly and the atmosphere was perfect. The fresh cut flowers were an awesome touch. The simplest thing is sometimes the best thing. They are doing it right here. This is a total must try!! Oh!, and the scones were to die for!!

Grace Gierach

Loved the decor, food and service! Would definitely go back!

Michael Lindsay

Wuaint place off the Blvd. Very narrow menu but food is well prepared.

Chris Kostelac

I had lunch there today and it was excellent. I had a steak sandwich that was delicious. For a side I had the tomato bisque that was equally scrumptious. My cousin had the same steak served as a salad with a side of fingerling potatoes and brussel sprouts. She loved it. It was quite large and she took half of it home for dinner.

Heather Athon

A little pricey but a splurge that I'm absolutely ok with. Everything that I've eaten here has been wonderful.

Rae Rae

Very very busy between 12 and 3 I mean very busy it was so loud and so many people in here u couldn't even get threw the door to get to the cashier so id order online n make a pick up or just do delivery because it's unnecessarily packed food was great

Azani F

Great location. Quality, delicious food. Fast service. And easy parking.

Ryan Strong

One of Kansas City's best local restaurants! Ran by Heather White and Amante Domingo, The Russell mixes rustic, wood-fired preparation with fresh, quality ingredients. There's something for everyone on the menu. Surrounded by nostalgia, The Russell's ambiance has a curated mix of antiques and greenery that makes you feel like you are somewhere familiar but new. Love the vibe! A staple for lunch for me is the Roasted Root salad (add salmon!) for when I need something a little lighter or greener, or the Steak Chimi sandwich when I need something a little heavier. Don't forget brunch, they have one of my favorite dishes for brunch Steak and Eggs! Each dish has it's own unique burst of different flavors letting you know the chef has paid attention to every ingredient detail. Do yourself and the local community a favor and visit The Russell!

nick crofoot

Love this place. Everything is very fresh and full of flavor. For the breakfast/brunch crowd, the loaded Bloody Mary is a meal in itself.

jen rarey

Really delicious food, beautiful decor, and super friendly staff. Perfect lunch spot!

Mike Watson

Great food. Great service. Desert counter is the bomb.

Its hard to set up a wood fire grill Right next to the infamous Gates BBQ. That being said this upscale dining establishment means buisness and will win your heart, with decor and execution of brilliant cuisine. would recommend. Price's are higher than most main street fair but for a reason. Check it out.

Robert Mayo

Nic Lazowski

Great atmosphere and restaurant design. Enjoyed lunch here and the food and service were both fantastic.

Phil Pastor

Great rustic catering! Family vibe for sure~

Jessica Best

Always delicious! Creative salads, fresh baked goods and a very cool space. (And their catered lunches rock, too.)

Robert Joseph

Great food and cool space

Jeannie Hood

Amazing food! Can't wait to go back!

Liz Ashkan

Food is amazing and loved the hip and laid back atmosphere. A new KC favorite... yum!

Shawn McCoy

Clint Schauff

Street tacos were very good. Chocolate chip cookies are good too

Robert Jackson

We finally went to The Russell for a private dinner party. The Russell is named after the flower shop of the same name that formerly occupied the location for years. The staff and chef did a wonderful job preparing a buffet of cheese, meats, vegetables, hummus, desserts and drinks. The grilled veggies we're crisp and flavorful while the smoked meats were tender. The venue is down to earth with antiques and a 'farm' feel. We look forward to going back for Saturday brunch, they only do brunch on Saturday and give the staff Sunday off.

John Kennyhertz

Nailed it!!! Came here for lunch and it was amazing. Had the Grilled Half Chicken. It was FIRE!!! everything on the menu looks great and can’t wait to come back for brunch on Saturday. WELL DONE!!! Definately my new favorite place.

Pirmin Kopta

My favorite KC brunch place

Carol Warren

Wonderful food and do cute

Tommy Jaynes

Clark Johnson

Good food, kinda noisy, friendly staff

Wuji Fei

I was here a long time ago and haven't actually been back since. But one thing I remembered about this place is its outstanding service. The place had great interior decorations. The day I was there there was something wrong with the ovens so there was a lot of smoke in the dining area. But the waitresses hospitality more than made up for the bad smell. They explained the situation to us and offered us some complimentary food as compensation. The food was also very delicious. I highly recommend this place.

Emily Philpot

Food was good, really fresh, creative, but a little bit limited as far as length of menu, but keeping in mind it is more of a lunch spot so that's alright. Average $9-$12 a plate. Environment was cute/modern/hip but a little bit overkill. Lots of seating and a pretty short wait for food. Will probably try again some time, but not a new absolute favorite.

Rocco Ranallo

Chase Nelson

Best food I've had in KC hands down. I ordered the half chicken, chimi steak sandwich and a rice crispy bar. Literally amazing. I highly recommend stopping in if you're in the area.

Tim Casey

Gary Durham

Neil Witte

Everything I've had here is spot on

Harold Reed

The Russell restaurant on Main Street 5-star the best in the city. My Cadillac salesperson told me to give it a try. David knows best , it was great. David eats there two time a week. Very good people to spend your money with in Kansas City.

Heather M

I had heard this place was awesome and it didn't disappoint. The food was delicious. The atmosphere is relaxed and friendly. The staff was helpful and courteous. I will be back again.

Chris Zumbach

Cristina Gonzalez-Robledo

Amazing atmosphere. The service is excellent. Food came out fast, didn't have to wait. A little more on a pricy side, but definitely get what you paid for. Their salmon and avocado is so tasty. Plus their toasted marshmallow cupcake soooooooo good!!

Dan Sayer

Absolutely amazing. Everything was spot on. Would highly recommend!

Esther estevez

Creative menu, delicious food

Christene Sache

The Russell on Main has nailed it! I could eat here every day. It's one of those places you almost don't want to review so you can keep it to yourself! Wonderfully welcoming, rustic yet refined, and the food is delicious! The atmosphere and decor makes you want to stay and lounge for hours and the food makes you wish it was open for dinner. The staff are very friendly and clearly love where they work. The steak on the salad was so tender and flavourful, I picked some up to take home the next day. The chimichurri was the best I've ever had. Quality ingredients, lovingly prepared. They have cold brewed ice tea on tap and a great selection of wines. The pastries are also perfect and not too sweet. The Olive Oil Sea Salt Chocolate Chip Cookie is my new favourite. I watched them prepare some catering plates - these items weren't on their menu but they should be! The Russell will definitely be on my call list for our next event.

Anthony Mascaro

Wonderful experience. The food is delicious. The service is impeccable, everyone including the owner is kind, humble and makes you feel like a guest in their home instead of a stranger at a restaurant. One of the best lunch or brunch options in Kansas City.

Ryan Trickel

Amazing food!

Elizabeth Hash

Go for the street tacos, stay for the sangria. ♥️

Sarah Hagler Findley

Kaitlin White

Hands down one of the best restaurants I’ve been to in KC. Unique and delicious options with a quaint and cozy feel.

Shane Safly

Let me start by saying the atmosphere is super cozy and rustic feeling. You order at the counter and food is brought to you. The food was delivered quickly and did not dissapoint. I had the brisket burger and side salad that was amazing. My buddy had the steak and greens salad that was stellar.. this place is a definite have to try if you are in mid town

LeAnna Cates

Incredible. A treat to my body.

Seth Kiefer

Elegantly rustic and charmingly casual this unique lunch spot nustled in the heart of the Kansas City's midtown brings together playful elements with high-quality ingredients in a wirlwind of flavor, texture, and experience. How can an ordinary BLT be turned into a culinary exploration? Optimize the tomatoes with pickling / char the bacon with a wood fire / and add wonderfully blended additions like avocado and a fried egg. How can a normal lemonade on a hot day be reimagined? Add in lime, cucumbers, and a touch of jalapeno. Simple materials done in the best way is the staple of The Russell .... Along with a rebelous attitude of altering the standard when it sees fit.

Brein East

Intentional was the word I use to describe this place. It's not 5 star fancy, but the service and the staff were what lead to me to rate it well as a nice easy place to have lunch. Plus the design and art is amazing.

Linda Mcnicholas

Way too noisy! Not going back. Food was pretty good but hard to enjoy an could barely hold a conversation.

Jon Auch

Very gorgeous space with the best food for the price

Karen Nicole Hansen

That was one of the best meals I've ever eaten. We ordered the 1/2 chicken and the steak sandwich. For dessert we had the olive oil chocolate chip cookie. Everything was fresh and made with love. Can't wait to go back! We're so lucky to have a restaurant like this in our neighborhood.

Chris P.

One of the best burgers I have ever had.

Forbes Cross

Really nice atmosphere and the food was good

Celeste Lupercio

Hands down my favorite lunch spot. I love the way it looks and feels in here. The food is always so perfect.

Traci Fann

Cute place good food.

Carole Vaughn

Love the root salad with Salmon. It's great food so it's always busy and can be pretty challenging to find a place to sit

Jason Camis

Great place for lunch or brunch! Mediterranean Shrimp Bowl, Steak Chimi and Chicken sandwiches were all delicious, great meld of flavors in each. Also really enjoyed a few pastries for dessert. The rustic/industrial decor was very unique for the area. Overall a fabulous experience.

rachel Watson

Sooo goooood! Tried for the first time today and was blown away! Food was wonderful, service and staff awesome and friendly...definitely will be back!

Mike O'Connell

Very tasty food and a very cool vibe. I had the steak chimi which was full of flavor and the steak was very tender.

Kevin Kimball

Sydney Ilg

Quite possibly the best brunch in America, maybe the USA, probably the world. We ordered the steak & eggs, breakfast tacos and a chocolate scone with coffee and every bite felt like transcending into Heaven. Sound dramatic? It is. But this meal was that good. Vibe was also super cool and hip, but who cares when the food is this good?! Cannot wait to go back next time I’m in KC!

Arfelia Burns-Jackson

Nice place to gather with family

Vee Osborne

If today is any example of what I should expect from this establishment. I may have just found my new favorite restaurant. Service: friendly, helpful & professional Ambience : unique, warm & inviting Food: Creative & Outstanding !

Gregory Roberson

Get the steak chimi sandwich

Krista Schwalbach

Excellent customer service, phenomenal food, beautiful decor. The Russell burger and chicken brioche sandwich were delicious.

Mark Lieb

Fun atmosphere and delicious food. So nice to have GF dessert options.

Jacob Steinle

Lindsey Cattanach

I am obsessed with your food! The atmosphere was so relaxing too! I can't wait to go back!

Josh Forgie

Best Salmon Steak salad I have ever had. The Russell has a really neat relaxed vibe going on with the laid back staff and farmhouse type decorations. The day was hot and I wanted something light and refreshing and decided on the Salmon salad with Miso dressing. Look, it's weird to get excited by a salad. Maybe it was the perfect thing for my appetite at the time or maybe this is the best salad in the world; I dunno. I do know that I'm. Looking forward to being in Kansas City again so I can try more of their menu.

Natasha Olinetchouk

Terrific salads by chef Janet Ross! Fresh, crispy, tangy and sweet flavors meld together in a perfect harmony. Salmon was grilled on the open fire (they don't have a stove!) and it was incredible.

Kat Kluska

The moment I walked in I knew it would be amazing!! I ordered the Root salad with salmon and it was AMAZING!! I can't wait to go back!! And I also loved the ambiance and decor!! Very rustic and vintage!!!

Haley Killough

My husband, daughter and I had a wonderful experience! Not only is it a darling little restaurant but the food was killer! Would highly recommend the steak sandwich and bourbon bar. They were also very accommodating as they brought up a changing table so I was able to change my daughters diaper in the restroom, privately. Total win!!

Anurag Patel

Mindy Upshaw

Best place for lunch. The Salmon Salad with Miso dressing is outstanding. If you feel like a glass of wine, beer or cocktail, they have that, too. And don't forget a pastry or cookie!

Stephanie Simmons

I wasn't expecting counter service here so we were surprised when we came for a business lunch. It was efficient ordering but there were no tables available so we ended up splitting up our party of 6 after waiting for a while. Popularity is sometimes challenging! Everything we had was fresh and well executed. The cookies were a highlight.

Tricia Bushnell

I somehow never leave here without at least 2 gluten free desserts in tow. The Russell is everything delicious in a comfy space. Perfect for a business lunch or catch up with old friends.

Alex Cerr

Laura Wolfe

Philip Callant

On one of my many business trips I needed a good and fast lunch. I travel more then 200 days a year around the globe. I ended up in The Russell on Main Street. It was an amazing experience, the staff was super friendly and the food was amazing! I had the Steak Chimi and was blown away! I actually went the next day back to try something else, and again it was a fabulous and delicious experience, I could not resist to the gluten free chocolate brownie to finish, I am Belgian and a chocoholic and I can tell you this dessert was like I was eating Belgian chocolate! The Russell is perfectly located. I was driving and there is parking in the front and in the back, both private open parking. I wish every city I travel too has a place like this!

Ray Cessna

Saw this was open while driving by. Stopped for breakfast. Interior design is very inviting. Bathrooms clean and unique, with common hand wash area and lavishly scented soap. Nice touch was real silverware, real coffe mugs. Oddly the plate was plastic which seemed out of place with rest of the items. Food presentation was top notch, unfortunately the eggs and bacon were cold. Wonderful location for breakfast place as there aren't any in the area. Menu short on breakfast options. Price is high for value, but inline with atmosphere. Will patron the restaurant again, to vote with my dollars for local restaurants and to help it stay in the area.

Joseph Silva

Liza cartwright

It's our new fav spot. Food is sooo yummy and it's a lovely atmosphere.

Anna Hockey

Fantastic lunch venue. Decor is super cool, like the seat yourself option for lunch. Had a salad and sandwich which were both delicious. Had a taste of a cookie as well which was really tasty

Janet Rowe

Best new fast casual restaurant on Main Street At 32nd! Steak and eggs is our favorite brunch item, followed closely by Biscuits and Gravy! Such great flavors and beautiful presentation. The Chocolate Chip cookies are the BEST in town, love the cinnamon!

Evan Sizemore

I've never had a bad experience here, or when catering from the Russell!!!

Taylor Isaacson

Everything I've gotten here is so yummy, fresh, and appropriately portioned. Great salads and sandwiches, especially the bread. The baked goods look amazing, as do their specials. Although it's usually crowded I haven't experienced competition for a table. Modern, trendy, and rustic - the space is gorgeous! Really beautiful and thoughtful design for a daytime restaurant.

Diane Stine

Simply fabulous, awesome people that work there,fantastic food.

Gabriel Sánchez

Tanya Dunn

Delicious food and wonderful, friendly staff!

Viktoria De'Vonne

This is my new FAVORITE place! It's my vibe and I could eat there every day!!!

Joseph Oliver

My girlfriend and I have been going to The Russell regularly since March and it truly never disappoints. The staff are consistently friendly and polite (a rarity these days) and the salmon & avocado sandwich is almost suspiciously too good. Hope to see dinner hours soon!

Ari Domingo

The food and atmosphere is spot on and very original! Have also tried their catering which I would also give 5 stars. This is my new favorite lunch and brunch spot in KC!

Linda Wells

My daughter and I went for brunch. The menu is limited but the food is generally very good. I didn't like the side salad that we ordered with the BLT sandwich, the waffle was delicious. You order from the counter and are given an old license plate as your order number. We enjoyed our meal, and I plan to go back for lunch.

Raja Reed

Love the brunch on Saturdays, the food was excellent and the service was great. The atmosphere was warm. Great place to go!!!

Douglas McKee


Thomas Brinker

Wow! A must-try for brunch. I had the avocado toast with a side of bacon and it was unbelievable. Oh and the loaded Bloody Mary was excellent as well. :-)

Laura Roth

Had them cater for work and it was incredible food! The food presentation was great and they set everything up in nice dishes. Im so excited they have a restaurant now, can't wait to go!

Kathleen Gustafson

The food is extraordinary - fresh, rich and tasty, the service is equally good. An extra touch: I went to the Russell one day after just being turned away and berated by another bakery that didn't have our promised order ready. Desperate to find something quickly, I remembered The Russell. As I was gazing into the cupcakes, the owner spontaneously came up and thanked me for my business. She had no idea what had just happened, of course, but it was such a nice thing, to be appreciated for your business. They were able to bail me out of the tight spot and threw in a couple of extra cookies as a "thank you!" Bravo!

Dansare Marks

Unbelievable. So delicious. So affordable.

Bobby Beachy

Nicole Bissey

Yum! This place is great. Yummy healthy options, but the desserts are my personal favorite.

Zachary Tippit

Good steak sandwich

Jim Williams

Interesting, excellent lunch spot. Driving on main St this afternoon, I noticed this new, to me, restaurant and stopped in. I had the taco special, cucumber jalapenos lemonade, and a chocolate chip cookie. Wow! Ya gotta try this place.

Ebony Bowman

Very good food - the flavor and quality is awesome! If going for lunch, come a little early.
