Great food in a civil atmosphere.
This place never fails to disappoint me with the food, service and for the ever sought after civil atmosphere. All without the hype I ordered from the "specials" menu. First the mushroom tart with goat cheese served on pastry dough. YUMMY. The waiter guided me to a Zinfandel which went really well with this....and surprising with the main course. I had the wild salmon in a lemon butter caper sauce with grilled asparagus and wild rice. Yummy yet again. Sweet place to have a scrumptious dinner and be able to talk instead of scream. The service was attentive when we needed them to be. Its casual cool in a civil comfy atmosphere.

Great brunch and fantastic
Great brunch and fantastic Bloody Marys. Small, so make sure you make reservations. They don't take credit cards, so bring cash

Great food, but cash only
The restaurant is in a great neighborhood that has a lot of music bars in the vicinity of the restaurant.
Food was great and they served it timely and hot. The only knock on this place is that it's CASH ONLY and doesn't accept credit cards. For your convenience, they do have an ATM inside, but knowing how much you have to pay for the fee does not give you comfort.

Great as usual
This is the umpteenth time we've been there. Half the time, after looking around for a restaurant, we end up at the Bistro again. It's friendly, quiet and the food is excellent.

I love this place but best
I love this place but best to stick with the traditional comfort food. I ordered the Cobb Salad and was underwhelmed. It was the smallest Cobb salad I've ever had and it was on taco chips...what! It was tasty but not what I would expect from a Cobb salad or any main course salad. My dining partners ordered the ribs which were amazing. Nevertheless, I will definitely go back as I love the ambiance and the food, just not the salads. Service a little slow this time. Nice Irish coffees. Remeber...cash only. There is however an atm in the restaurant.

Great little place but cash only!
Staff was friendly, food was good and we were never rushed although we lingered for awhile after eating. But, we were lucky to have enough cash. We did not notice the cash only sign.

Great local spot
Im a regular at this place, and it never disappoints. The food and service are always great. We had the prix fix menu last time, and you get an App, Entree Dessert and a glass of wine I think it was $40. We had Smoked Salmon with brioche, Hummus plate, Mussels, and a Fantastic Rissoto with Porcini Muchrooms. My Favorite. I'll be back

We met friends for lunch on
We met friends for lunch on Sunday. It was perfect because the menu had brunch choices as well as lunch choices.
We were able to relax and catchup with each other. No one rushed us at all. Everyone liked the food, it wasn't fancy,
but it was good. The waiter was very good, taking care of us and leaving us to r conversation. I would definitely return

Great Neighborhood Local for Brunch
Sullivan Bistro is probably my favorite spot in the neighborhood for a good brunch. It can get crowded on the weekends and space is a luxury, but it's perfect for breakfast during the week or an early/late brunch. Their menu has a good range of breakfast favorites and they're all done very well for reasonable prices. The Eggs Benedict is perfect.
I have eaten here plenty of times and will continue to do so. Definitely recommended.

I recently met a friend here
I recently met a friend here for dinner and was really amazed at both the food and level of service. The atmosphere is perfect. You can actually hear the person your dining with. There was a prix fixed menu which was an exceptional bargain. A big bowl of mussels to start. We both had the shell steak which was absolutely succulent. I have to tell you that it was one of the best steaks I've had in awhile. This place was a great find. Understated. great food and service, and a good value.

Sullivan bistro was a great find! Quiet little restaurant with a fabulous menu. Service was quick and staff was friendly.

My friend and I were eager for the pancakes that we read about on the online reviews. We were not disappointed! Pancakes AND turkey bacon AND omelet AND fresh squeezed OJ were all awesome, and I would 100% go back. Tiny little spot, not a fancy atmosphere but great for 2-4 people. Great location too, right in Soho.

So glad we went!
Made a last minute reservation on a friday night with a friend and was glad they were able to fit us in! Staff was really sweet and attentive. My friend had the mussels and the meatloaf with the yummiest mash potatoes! All in all great experience! Will definitely be back!

Sullivan St. Find
Found Sullivan Street Bistro through Open Table. We reserved for 5:00 and found it very quiet with very low background music, which is a definite pleasure. It started filling up by 7. Food was unexpectedly innovative. Tasty and pretty, too. The mousse was fantastic and the cappuccino great. Service was attentive and courteous. Relatively plain decor masks a real gem.

My Favorite Bistro
Sullivan Bistro has been a favorite ever since the current owner took it over. He is a talented chef and has trained his staff to emulate him in the kitchen and to provide excellent service. New improvement: the restaurant now takes some credit cards !!

Farm Fresh and delicious
Small neighborhood spot with great food, and friendly service. Their drinks are strong, and priced well. We will return to try other things on the menu.

This small, intimate restaurant features a dutch-inspired menu. The chef is visible through the kitchen and the food is tasty. We'd recommend the coconut shrimp appetizer to accompany the entrees. The menu also features dutch crepes. Several salads are also available. It's a restaurant with a lot of charm. Not sure how busy it gets on weekends/evenings but you may want to make reservations since it really is quite small. This would be a nice restaurant for a date.

A charming restaurant...
Small, casual, affordable and quiet, with outstanding, well prepared food. Very friendly service. I've been a few times, and have been quite satisfied. The burgers are great, and they have about a half dozen kind, including a turkey burger. The BBQ ribs are excellent, as is the free range chicken. Really, you can't go wrong. PS, they have a nice happy hour!

Great Date Night
Took my girlfriend out for a typical date-night. The food was great. The waiter was polite. The food was fantastic and not that expensive. It was a bit smaller than the photos made it out to be but that wasn't really an issue.

Nice NYC dining experience
Took some out of town guests here the other night for dinner. We were all very happy with the food and service. Ask about their mostly unadvertised Happy Hour drinks. They make some fine Mojitos!!!! Risotto with shrimp was cooked perfectly. We also had the Guac, and a smoked salmon on brioche to start. The hanger steak was the best we ever had. really, and the fries were great. You must try the chicken Milanese with basmati rice. Best chicken dish ive ever had. Its a small family run place, so they really took care of us. Dutch Nutella crepe with banana was the icing on the cake. Its all good. Definitley will recomend.

Dinner with fam
We had a great dinner at Sullivan Bistro. Food was excellent, and they had enough variety on the menu that the kids could find something they liked. The service could have been better, which was hard to figure because they only had a few tables. But it was passable. Would recommend, and would go back.

Quiet, Cozy and Affordable
Very good food with lots of choices to make everyone happy. Our table had creeps, very good burgers,a couple of salads, grilled veggie sandwich, BBQ ribs. The veggies were all fresh and delicious. Service was great. A very good staff. It's a small restaurant, with a open kitchen on a perfectly quiet street. Oh, and we got to see Ana Wintour, who lives directly across the street. That was fun!
