I gave this restaurant an average rating. Actually, the food is better than average, but the prices are so unreasonably high that they drag the value down. My husband had the 16-ounce steak for $41. This did not include any kind of side dish, just a little sauce. He really enjoyed the steak (didn't care for the sauce, which, fortunately,... More

Nice atmosphere..Great service..Great menu..They have more than steak, my husband had chicken I got to taste it..that was great too! They have a bar area too. Recommend making reservations. Sullivan's is located upstairs of ElPaseo Gardens plaza. Park upper level North side of parking structure.

The evening started out with an internet search of the best steakhouses nearby. Sullivan's, in Palm Desert had excellent reviews. My husband and I made a reservation and arrived a few minutes early. To my surprise, when they saw our name they specifically gave us well wishes and directed us to the lounge for cocktails as they were not ready... More

We are snowbirds and look forward to our trip to eat at Sullivan's. This year was no exception! We ate there six times. The service is super. The only negative is the noise level in the dining room. The food is very good. This year we found that they served lunch the whole time we were there. That's great for... More

5 star service with 5 star food. We enjoyed the wedge salad, ribeye, lobster, and filet. Everything was perfectly done. This was our first time and would definitely go back again.

We were excited to try Sullivan's because it was recommended to us by friends and we had heard good things from them about it. Having experience with several great steakhouses in the past, perhaps our hopes were too high. The ambiance was good. This particular restaurant is located on El Paseo Drive in an upscale shopping center. The restaurant was... More

We dined at Sullivan's for the first time to celebrate a birthday. It is fine dining at its best. We enjoyed the lovely dining room, warm and attentive service, and excellent food. Because we were at a steakhouse, we ordered steaks and they were cooked to perfection. They made our celebration extra special. They took a picture of our party,... More

We were not too sure if we could find a seat at the particularly busy time of night, but we were allowed to sit along the outside of the restaurant, under some nice, toasty propane heaters. The ambience was nice, and our server, Ashley, was nothing short of exceptional. To start, we opted for calamari, which was breaded and seasoned... More
