Service
 
This “busy” Harvard Square “mainstay” “hustles and bustles” with “relatively quick and courteous” servers stewarding “tasty” , “comfort” -skewing New American plates like “upscale hamburgers” while “knowledgeable” vest-and-tie-wearing mixologists concoct “interesting” cocktails; as such, the bi-level setting (divided into a “dim” and “cozy” subterranean dining room and multiple bars) is usually “noisy” , though at least “you can always find someone to chat with.”

I'm a big fan! First, their cocktails are excellent and they have a very good selection of beers, both on draft and in bottles, including some unusual selections. The food is excellent. Their burger is one of the best around and the swordfish salad is deliciious. It's also a fun and classy atmosphere with good service. Needless to say, a big step up from the Finagle-a-Bagel that used to be in this space!

I love Russell House. Not as good of a sit down restaurant but hey they are a tavern. Personally I recommend sitting at the bar downstairs. It is quite cozy and the bartenders make great drinks.

Went there for brunch. Food was great. Service was great. Cocktails were very creative, but a bit too alcoholic for a morning drink. Convenient for families, friends, and dates.
