    Took my date here after seeing 'Les Mis" and was very pleased with their great service and excellent menu. The seared Ahi Tuna appetizers what excellent and serviced cold as it should be and not over cooked or warm. The Blue Cheese Wedge was excellently prepared with diced tomatoes on top a especially good dressing with blue cheese crumbles. Lobster Bisque, again was excellent too but not over-baringly rich. But oh, the creme brulee was to die for! Loved the thick crunchy caramelized sugar glaze...

    It was a birthday. Told staff 2 times. No candle. It was a special night. We wanted an extra half hour for a table and in the meantime was ignored in the bar. When we got the table foe dining our bar drinks arrived. No tip for waitress who neither waited on us nor cashed out with us... Dinner was delicious, good food. But waiter was pretentious and half listened. No bread, wrong steak order then under cooked. Then... No birthday candle after tell 2 hosts!,😒😒😒not recommending nor going back. Simons is much better!

    Steaks was overcooked and meat was poor quality. They nickel and dime you with ala carte side dishes. One of the most expensive meals in Anchorage. Much better food available elsewhere for lower prices. Had steak at Jen's earlier in the week and it was far superior to the filet I had at Sullivan's for about the same price.

    Once a year I try this restaurant again hoping their seafood quality has gone up I know people go here for steaks but if you're going to charge $40 for a piece of salmon it shouldn't be so dry you can blow it out your mouth. Their prices are very high but if something is wrong with your meal the manager says sorry and walks away - what kind of restaurant does that anymore? Too much competition in Anchorage to serve food and have service like this.

    My husband and I have dined at Sullivan's before and we have always had a good experience. We went to dine there Saturday night and unfortunately we had to wait more than 1/2 hour after our reservation to be seated. The restaurant was full due to an event that was going on downtown in the PAC or Egan Center and people just lingered at their tables waiting for the time to go to the event straight from Sullivan. So my suggestion would be NOT to go when there is an event going on downtown or make your reservation to eat after 8pm if you do not want to wait in the bar or lobby.

    Our reason for coming to Sullivans was for the entertainment in the bar especially Rick Zelinsky also my son was visiting from Las Vegas and it was his last night before going home so we wanted him to have a special experience which he did. The staff was very friendly the service was good and the food was excellent. But mostly the music was exceptional and entertaining and made the night as after dinner we sat in the bar and really enjoyed it! We would definitely come back to the entertainment and dining at Sullivans. Thanks!

    My mother and I came to Anchorage for a special occasion birthday celebration. She turned 75, I turned 50. We picked Sullivan due to the proximity of the PAC. What a fantastic dinner!!!! Zach was our waiter and treated us like we were royalty. We could not have chosen a better venue for our celebratory dinner.

    Sullivan Steakhouse is centrally located with good food and good service. We had a great waitress! The only thing that is in contrast is the noise level, it is much to high for conversation and does not work for a romantic dinner. I'm not sure there is a solution to this problem. Enegetic for the noise level description does not cover the issue.

    While the service was good, seemed like they needed more help. A long time between server sightings. Quality of the bone in cowboy rib eye, has slipped, a lot fattier than it used to be. The sides portions are 1/2 what they used to be. Considering the increase in prices versus the decrease in quality and quantity of the food, its no longer on the top of my list. While I am aware that prices will increase some, it was only a year ago that I was last in.

    Sometimes when I go to Sullivan's it's amazing. This time, not so much. Ribeye was poorly cut with a large gristle at the end and tasted musty as if it had sat in a pool of lamb blood after being butchered. The taste was nauseating. The manager ended up comping the entree. My son's filet, on the other hand, was excellent. The garlic meatballs were outstanding. The shrimp cocktail was totally not worth it, though. Three medium sized steamed shrimp for $9 is ridiculous even for fine dining. Service though was outstanding. Water glasses never went below two thirds full. Waiter was very attentive as well. My recommendation would be to go at lunch rather than dinner. Quality of food seems to be more consistent with the lunch staff.

    I had planned a special night out for my wife and I before I deployed. I made a note on my reservation that it would be great if something special/extra could be done. When we got to the restaurant, there was nothing set up nor mentioned. Apparently, they do not read the notes on your reservation. The restaurant atmosphere and food were, however, perfect.

    We had an excellent dinner. The food was great. The steaks are cooked a little on the rare side but we already know this and have our cuts cooked a little longer. Service was a little slow but it was worth the wait. Their blue cheese wedge salad is always the best! You have the option to order al la cart or they offer dinner packages. You can order a starter, steak, salad, side, and choice of potatoes for a fairly low price. We ended our evening in the bar listening to the Jazz Band. It is so cool that they offer entertainment in their Bar. It's where I gravitate towards when choosing a place to have cocktails with business associates. What a nice treat! It's what separates this Steak Restaurant from the rest. It has CLASS!!!!!

    I use to like Sullivan's for lunch; not any more!! We were the only diners in the restaurant at 11:40am. My lobster bisque soup arrived cold; the lunch specials were ordered were not any better. The salmon was so salty my dining companion could barely eat it & my balsamic chicken was so dry I left 1/2 of it on my plate. Thank goodness the bread was still warm & delicious!! Very disappointed!! This is the 2nd time within 1 week that I've dined at Sullivan's and it may very well be my last.

    I normally like SUllivan's for lunch, but we were disappointed in this trip. The oven wasn't working, so no bread - which is usually very yummy and something I look forward to. Our waitress was either too busy or just plain bad; we didn't see much of her & it took us 20 minutes to pay for our lunch. Finally had to give our payment to the manager! Not good when it should be a given that folks there for lunch need to get in & out within an hour. I hope my next visit is up to the usual standard.

    I found the food uninspiring. The appetizer was overdone and not very good, with no distinguishable taste. (cheese steak egg roll) The cesar salad was not very flavorful, somewhat dry. The strip steak was slightly tough and without flavor. I never received my soup although I thought I had ordered it but might not have been entitled to it?? The food was expensive and not worth the price. I will not go back.

For the pleasure of spending $356 on food for 5 people I got to bus our own table, never get drink refills, get pepper, have 2 steaks not done right 3 times, and other comedy other errors. We are easy going patrons but won't waste our time and money, my previous experiences were not as bad but similar.

    I've been going to Sullivan's for a few years now, and have always had an outstanding experience. I had dinner with co-workers on 8/27/2014 and it was a disappointment. The servers were slow to clear the table or refill drinks, didn't remember who ordered which dishes, and almost hit me in the head with plates on two instances. Also, one server leaned directly in front of a co-worker, interrupting him, mid-conversation and spent a solid minute clearing crumbs away from the table cloth. I got a rib-eye that was a pallid grey color and extremely gristly. Of the 7 of us that attended, only 2 were satisfied with the quality of our meal.

    Dinner was excellent, met or exceeded all expectations for Sullivan's. Had experienced an unusual showing last winter, and am delighted to find every aspect of the evening was now exceptional. As usual, the Ahi appetizer was perfect. The salads, both the Kale and the iceberg wedge were delicious. The filets were done correctly and seasoned properly. The wine was properly presented and accurate from the wine list. Service was very good and at an appropriate and comfortable tempo. Thank you for a great evening. Look forward to returning.

    We've eaten at Sullivan's many times. I'm always impressed by the serving and management staff there. Very attentive, very professional, and very friendly. We each had the Prix Fixe with the 6 oz filet. Although mine was fine, my wife's was very gristly, butterflied open, and mostly unedible. In true Sullivan's character, however, the executive chef came to our table, apologized for the poor quality of the steak, and ordered another for her, which arrived very quickly, and was excellent. When we received our bill we noticed we were only charged for one dinner. I asked our server about it and she insisted my wife's dinner had been comped. This was above and beyond. As I said, we've eaten there many times, and will be back.

    My wife and I have eaten at Sullivan's several times over the years, and until this last experience, we have always found it enjoyable. 1) The hostess about drove us nuts as we "sauntered" so slowly to our table, we nearly passed her! She walked very slowly, looking back at us constantly. 2) We thought the table we were at was going to come crashing to the floor. It was very loose and wobbly. 3) Our waitress forgot to bring us bread until we were nearly done with our salads and asked for bread. 4) We ordered our steaks oscar style, and the bernaise sauce was horrible. It had a tart taste to it, rather than the normal buttery taste. The manager was receptive to our complaint of this, and removed the oscar style, as well as a dessert.

    Important to know I did make a reservation for 7:15 p.m. on a Sunday night. The restaurant had a large party--associated with the conference we were attending--and they were not prepared. We did eat appetizers and salads, but after two hours (9:30 p.m.) many of us in the restaurant had not received meals and we had two issues of burning food smelling the restaurant. We asked our server for our bill. The manager apologized. We were billed only for our beverages, appreciated it. But we left without eating dinner. People in the bar and other tables were being served--and many of them were seated after us. Poor representation of such a fine restaurant chain.

    When the steak was first brought out it was under cooked. They took it back to cook it a bit longer (with my potatoes and vegetables on the plate), brought it back 15 minutes later, the only thing on the plate was the steak that was sent back, but this time it was overcooked. The overcooked steak was burnt and gritty. After asked about the steak and complained to the server, the manager was supposed to come back and they did not. We have always had decent service and steak at Sullivan's but this time was different and extremely disappointing.
