It was very crowded. Our family expected it to be more intimate. We felt like we were with the people at the table next to us - we heard more than we should have about them. Sullivans had a prix fixe dinner for New Year's Eve to our surprise. When we made the reservation, no one told us. The appetizers... More

Had dinner here with friends recently. Friends had steaks and I had the tuna all of which were excellent. Great atmosphere for celebrating work accomplishments and having drinks. Highly recommend.

Noisy. None of the staff smiled. Everyone was just going through the motions. No friendly talk. Took 1.5 hours before we got our salad!! A meal taking 2.5 hours is not acceptable. We even told them to box the desert as we did not want to continue waiting. Even though the service was extremely slow it seemed the servers are... More

we had a group of 6 people this night and prior to going we had made reservations on open table. The day of the reservation we had a call to confirm the reservation and was told that the restaurant was overbooked ( ? ) somehow. They stated that they would try their best to hold us to our confirmed time... More

We finally made our first visit to Sullivan's and while the food is good, it wasn't out of this world especially for the hefty price. Service staff was knowledgeable and efficient. The vibe is upbeat and there were all sorts of people there but man was it loud. Not a place to have a nice, quiet and long conversation over... More

One of my great frustrations when dining out, in particular at better restaurants, is that the wait staff often does not listen to the customer, or does a poor job in communicating with the kitchen. Went to Sullivan's (third or fourth time)for two person birthday celebration. Had some difficulty getting the table I desired, but Christina was first rate in... More

Nice atmosphere with friendly staff. Food was good but not great. I had a filet mignon (slightly over cooked) with asparagus and mushrooms. The best part of the meal was the cheese steak roll appetizer.

Last month I met some of my friends at Sullivan's Steakhouse for their 20 Anniversary Celebration. I visit this restaurant quite frequently with my friends after I receive an email invitation to one of their special events. This particular night was my first time trying their prime rib with their horseradish mashed potatoes. All I can say is that my... More
