Great food, table wasn't
Everything was great, food wise and our waiter was fantastic! But our seat was in front of the line where the waitstaff pick up their orders and they were pretty much oblivious that our table was RIGHT there...too much information about their private lives was revealed and we had no way of escaping it, sans moving tables.

I already sent in a review
I already sent in a review yesterday, but everything was fantastic. the one thing that ruined it was the two orders of sea bass. we have ordered it before and it is to die for. one of my favorite things. It tasted like flounder or just plain fish. it was dry, not a good flavor or texture. it was extremely disappointing.
Service and atmosphere the best!

Special place for special
Special place for special ocassions. The ambience is upscale. Is a nice place to take your date to. It may seem a little bit pricey comparing to other restaurants, but it is totally worth it. I allways care first for the quality of the food, I don't get fooled by sparks and whistles in "fancy" and snob restaurants. Also I don´t like to over pay for a meal, and in this place, you get a lot for your money, in every way. I fully recommend it!

sully's is a great place
Our server Gabby was awesome, attentive and very friendly. She was attentive but not intrusive. The food was fantastic. My Chilean sea bass was out of this world!

Great food at a great price
The reeled us in by sending a free $25 gift card. We each had the 3-course meal for $39 and were not disappointed. All of our selections were very delicious and served in a timely manner. The only drawback to the evening was the waitstaff was very meek and not as personable as we like but a good server nonetheless. We will definitely be back!

My wife and I took our 86 year old friend and her husband there to celebrate her birthday. The staff was very attentive and wished her happy birthday many times as well as providing her a dessert. The food and service were outstanding.

Wonderful dining experience!
As always, the dining experience at Sullivan's was fantastic! The service is impeccable and the food was superb. The appetizers was delicious and everyone in our party had steak for the main course. My husband and nephew at the bone in filet mignonette and I had the regular filet, and they were cooked just right and to the temperature of our request. The creme brûlée is out of this world!! I would highly recommend Sullivan's over and over tony friends and family.

Our special day..a little off.
My husband and I went for our anniversary to Sullivans, as we do every year. This year things seemed a little off and I have decided it was with the waitress and not with the establishment itself. We gave a generous tip of course, but we have been taken care of much better in the past, at least with a desert for the special event. Roll of the dice, you know. We will go back again, it's our special place.
5/31/2013 4:00:00 PM
Very good food and service
Very good food and service in a tasteful room. Only steakhouse I know of that includes a salad in the price of the steak!

We've been to Sullivans several times in the past few months. It's always been great. This time however, it was not quite up to par. Our calamari was tough, and my husband's filet was not as good as usual.

Outstanding table service
To watch the servers move about the restaruant is to watch a play unfolding; hardly a wasted move and all with the express objective of providing a most enjoyable dinner experience for each guest; literally from soup to nuts! I've dined there 4 times and it's consistantly outstanding in all respects. Compliements to the management team!
6/8/2013 12:00:00 AM
I've been to Sullivan's a dozen of times or so, and always received great food with great service.

This is one of our favorite
This is one of our favorite lunch spots. They have wonderful lobster bisque and Crab Louie salad. I'm not a huge fan of their hyacinth tea or whatever it is, but the ambiance allows conversation, the service is highy professional, and the food is excellent. I would prefer a mint to a golf tee upon departure, but overall, I would highly recommend Sullivan's for lunch (as well as for their Happy Hour, although that's another review).
6/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent and friendly
Lived in Austin 30 years and finally made it to Sullivan's. The salads were amazing, and the steaks cooked to perfection. Don't pass on the desserts, especially the coconut cream pie. It's unlike anything you've ever had. The wait staff and management couldn't have been friendlier or more pleasant. Great time. Will be back much sooner than 30 years.

My wife and I decided on Sulivan's for our wedding night meal.
We couldn't have asked for a more perfect dining experience.
The staff were great. A special thanks to our waiter Ed and the manager Gary!
From the calamari appetizer to the key like pie dessert, our meal was wonderful.
This wasn't our first time, nor will it be our last. Thank you.

Great night of dinning
This was a very good night of dinning and just relaxing. Not one problem with the evening. All staff were attentive and great. General manager, Gary Bowen, can over and introduced himself and let it be known that if anything was wrong, just let him know and he would take care of it. Never had to call him over. He even gave us his business card, said call before we come back again, and he would ensure another fine evening. Will go back again.

Business Dinner on Monday Night
We were a group of 7 with reservation on a Monday night. The staff was pleasant and professional. All of the food was great and even though some had the dinner prix fixe for $38.00 (great deal) and others ordered off the menu - all the courses were served at the same time. Some had fish and others steak. All the meals were tasty and hot. The wine list was dauting but easy to follow (although in alphabetical order). The gathering went well and the noise level allowed us to talk and get to know each other outside the office. By the way, two people had the salmon and it was served with a dill rosotto that they both loved.

Amazing & Amazingly Consistent
Thank God I don't live in Austin........or I would have a serious addiction to the "cowboy cut" ribeye. I have eaten in msny of the famous and highly respected restaurants around the country....and this is my favorite steak. Consistancy in food and service is the hallmark of all great dinning experiences and Sullivan's has never disappointed.

Wonderful Anniversary at Sullivan's
Service and food was great. Attention to every detail including delivery of flowers. We had a great meal with super service and moved to bar with live jazz band afterwards. We had a great evening.

Amazing except for BBQ sauce....
Our dining experience at Sullivan's was almost perfect; outstanding service, perfectly cooked steak, amazing ambience. Unfortunately, the entire experience was muddied with the bacon wrapped scallops. Whoever decided to smother those otherwise perfect scallops in BBQ sauce should be flogged. Even worse was the fact that the sauce tasted like something I would buy at 7-11. Perfect night of dining until that. I would definitely eat at Sullivan's again but I would request the scallops sans BBQ sauce.

Everything, from booking the
Everything, from booking the reservations - to a complementary dessert; was excellent overall. People, (hostess, maitre'd, waiter, waiter assistants, & valet) followed up at most points along the process of the total dinner experience.
Two items dimmed our experience a little: The KC cut strip steak only was fairly tough, with some pieces of tendon running thru it. Also, three of us wanted their steaks pink in the middle, but they turned out to be quite rare. This is our fault because we didn't say "medium", but said "medium rare" to get the pink in the middle. At any rate, in the interest of time, and because the "medium rare" wasn't too bad, we didn't say anything. Other than this -- we couldn't have had a better meal!! THANK YOU.

Son's 26th Birthday
Great food, great steak, always come here for special occasion's and everybody feels like it was special. Service was great. Very attentive. I used Open Table and that made things easy as well. They brought out a birthday desert as a surprise and even at 26, my son still enjoys it.

Sullivan's is a always 10!
We have been going to Sullivan's since 1998 and it is still our favorite restaurant in Austin-What better recommendation could we give?
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food,ok Ambiance but loud.
When we arrived at 6:00pm and were seated ACDC was playing and relatively loud. At 6:30pm I remember the music changing. Food and service was outstanding. Will be back next week for the bone in Ribeye. Ambiance is nice but could be much better to match the quality of the food.

Elegant dining experience
Sullivan's Steakhouse was an elegant place to dine. I had a 25$ off card if I used my American Express card so this instigated my first dining experience at Sullivan's. Comfortable seating, nicely laid table, and excellent service. The food was above good but not great. The Crispy Shan Ghi Calamari was the best I've ever had, not rubbery like some other places. I had the Salmon but it was a little dry. My partner had the Filet Mignon Medallions with Shrimp and horseradish mashed potatoes and it was very good. All in all it was a very pleasant night out at Sullivan's
My only wish is that more people would dress up a little when going out to really nice restaurants!
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great all around!
This is a great Austin restaurant. While there are multiple locations, this was the first. Highly recommend it.

My husband and I celebrated our 29th wedding anniversary at Sullivan's. Dinner was fabulous and the service was phenomenal. We were quickly seated, with continuous service throughout our meal. We were then presented a dessert written in carmel that said "Happy Anniversary", it was a really nice touch to a wonderful evening. The staff at Sullivan's made our evening very special.
9/29/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyable Wedding Anniversary
The calamari appetizer is one of their signature dishes and was excellent and sufficient to share. I ordered the lettuce wedge and my wife ordered their new kale salad. Both were quite tasty and we would order them again. I had the set menu crusted steak and my wife had a seafood special salmon and stuffed shrimp. Both were outstanding. The size was generous and quite we could have shared either order. We shared a delicious cheesecake dessert . The service was attentive but not overdone. The background music was not what I would have chosen and was a bit loud. The aircon was too cold so bring a jacket of sweater. We ate early so perhaps the room would have become warmer as the body heat of more diners was added to the dining room.

Sullivan's is a great long-time restaurant Austin any time, but I have come to particularly appreciate it for business lunches - food and service are always great, and it is quiet enough to carry on a conversation. Plus, it's within walking distance from many work places.

We had a great experience
We had a great experience there. We were first timers but will be back. Great people and exceptional food. Wine selection was perfect.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
loved the drinks and blue
loved the drinks and blue cheese wedge salad as well as the filet
service was on top of things, very friendly, funny
under construction when we visited Halloween Night so seating was not what I would have preferred but it was ok
suggestion would be to have added a dessert to the "Sure Thing" special
look forward to returning as it was my first visit
thanks for the emails with specials
10/30/2013 5:00:00 PM
It was halloween and there was construction in the main bar and the main dining room so we decided to eat at a booth next to the band in the casual bar. It was wonderful. Great music, service and drinks. Food was top-notch.
10/31/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent dining experience. The steaks were cooked to perfection and the service was outstanding. We'll definitely be back.

Every resturant in the city
Every resturant in the city was overwhelmed with 250,000 football and Grand Prix fans in town. Sullivans did very well when scheduled reservations were filled 30 minutes to one hour late. Sulivans must have reduced the number of reservations they accepted as they were more or loss on time, showing good resturant management practices.
Looking forward to continued exceptional evenings at Austin's Sullivans. Great show and love the new decor.

A night out for steak
We had chosen a very busy weekend to visit so I am overlooking the fact that we had to wait for 35 minutes beyond our booking to get a table. The wine list is great for all price range (most steak houses are only good for expensive). The steak out perfectly cooked as ordered & it was delicious. Side dishes were tasty and enough to share among 4 people. Shrimp pasta dish was really good as well. Their Ahi Tuna appetizer was amazing (it always is). Wait staff was over worked but they did a great job despite of being so busy. All food came on time and servers had smiles on their faces when they came to the table.
It is a great restaurant with great food and now energetic vibe (the place has been renovated recently).
11/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
Been around,but still good
We had not been to Sullivan's for years and it's been recently remodeled but the food and service were still great. We had a seafood special that was both good and reasonable in price.service was outstanding. A great place to go if you have something going on downtown.
11/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
We went for wife's birthday. Everything was great from valet parking to dessert. The portions were large & the waitress split the salads & potatoes for us.Steaks were cooked perfectly & the bananas foster bread pudding was great. Will be back our next trip to Austin.
