  • "We decided that we owed ourselves a leisurely afternoon with great food. Sullivan's was it! The restaurant was quiet and peaceful, an oasis when compared to the outside activity of drivers and construction. We were seated immediately as we had reservations. The service was impeccable with being attentive but not annoying. Our glasses were filled repeatedly and courses brought accordingly with minimal interruption. The food was very well prepared and the salads were generous, a meal itself. We will be going back!"

  • "Everything about the evening was perfect, atmosphere, food, wine, serves. The only neg. was the bar music was so loud we had to shout to one another. Embarrassing as we were meeting with someone important for the first time"
    Dined on 4/10/2014
  • "Sullivan's is so noisy that its difficult to carry out a normal conversation. In the future, if I want to dine with noise, I'll go to Logan's or the Texas Roadhouse."

  • "Steak was perfectly done as ordered. Spinach salad and creamed corn were standouts."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Some things were really good. Some were a little underwhelming. I had the New York strip. It was cooked correctly and was very good, but feel like I've had better. We shared mashed potatoes (with garlic and horseradish) which were excellent and Brussel sprouts which were too salty. Started with a wedge salad which had too much dressing and instead of big slices of tomato or small whole tomatoes, it had some tiny diced version which were like getting them in a cheap salsa. That was disappointing, mostly because I love a good wedge and this was not that. Interesting variety of wines. Overall this is a cool place in downtown with a chic vibe, but felt like it was not as good as it should be."

  • "The restaurant recently went through changes is the dining area to make the atmosphere more contemporary. The ambient noise level gas increased, but the food and wait staff are still top notch."
    Dined on 3/31/2014
  • "Sullivan's is a very high end restaurant. I've been there twice now and the food was excellent both times. The second time I was there the service was lackluster, especially considering the price you pay to eat there. However, the food is always excellent. Ít's the closest thing to a Capital Grille in Austin. Cheers!"

  • "If you have never been to Sullivan's in Austin you are missing perhaps the best steakhouse in existence. The food is simply outstanding. The staff are friendly, engaging and attentive; and the atmosphere is relaxed and inviting. I would recommend placing Sullivan's at the top of your favorites list. My recent visit with my family of 5, was a truly memorable dining experience."

  • "My opinion, this is the best steakhouse in Austin. Our steaks were tender, cooked perfectly, taste fantastic. Their kale salad was wonderful. They have an extensive wine list and the service Was outstanding. The lighting and noise level was perfect for a quiet relaxed dinner."

  • "Ambiance was great, cocktail was delicious...food was good but nothing outstanding for the high prices. For a steakhouse, the Filet Mignon was fair (actually a bit dry cooked at Medium). Too expensive for food served."
    Dined on 3/21/2014
  • "Parking is the biggest issue but, they do have valet right in front. We were seated right away even though we were a little early for our reservation. Signed up for the email to get free appetizer. Never received any coupon or anything but manager horned it anyway. The acoustics are not that good and was a little loud so not real romantic. Appetizer options we different than other restaurants. The Price Fix menu option was a good value with decent size portions. Bottom line the service was great and the food was delivered as ordered and was good. We will go here again."

  • "We went on our 16th anniversary here and had a great time. They even have a jazz band that plays at 7pm. This place makes what I call affectionately "meat candy". Steaks are great. Sauces and options are delicious. Try the Au-Gratin potatoes. Really tasty!"

  • "Great food + excellent service = repeat customer., In Austin great food can be found in many places. Sullivan's is up there in the A+ category."
    Dined on 3/2/2014
  • "This was my first time to Sullivans steak House. The Ambiance was very nice, however the staff were a bit confused as to what table or customers to provide service too. I had to flag a waiter down ask for some water that was after 10-12 minutes after being seated. We finally got service and the evening turned out ok."

  • "My wife and I have been doing date night and special occasions at Sullivans for more than 10 years. This was our first visit since the remodel. Sullivans is no longer a romantic evening getaway. The noise level at our table upstairs against the wall was so loud we could not hear our waitress. We told her we could not hear her and asked her to speak louder. We received "no problem" and the service stayed at that level the rest of the evening. We noticed that 80 percent of the staff was different from our past experiences. The food and drinks were great as always, except this was the second time my wifes lobster tail was tough. We are very disappointed as we will not be returning to Sullivans."

  • "This was my first time dining at Sullivans Steakhouse in Austin, and sadly it did not meet my expectations. My boyfriend and I had reservations with another couple (our coworkers) for Valentines Day. This wasn't our first pick, but waiting till two weeks before the day to make reservations left us with few nice options. Two of our crowd had eaten here before and found it fitting. However,the food nor atmosphere met my expectations. The appetizer was okay but not specatacular. Something I felt we could have easily done at home other than the raw oysters. The steak for one at our table was overcooked and this was noted by the server at the time. The ravioli was spicier than expected for another. Would rather eat somewhere else for the price."

  • "This recently remodeled venue has both a wonderful, subdued ambiance for lunch, permitting conversation between fellow diners, and an exceptional lunch menu, with a broad range of entree' selections as well as some very appealing salads, most notable of which is the Steak Salad."

  • "I knew the food would be great, but the staff really made the experience poverty the top ... friendly and knowledgeable"
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "After an extremely disappointing NYE's dinner (when we made reservations, no one told us the restaurant was being remodeled), we decided to give Sullivan's another chance. We've been coming here for YEARS and really hated to part ways with a place we had always enjoyed so much. I'm glad to say that improvements have been made. The remodeling has made for a more vibrant atmosphere, as there is an open concept joining the bar and restaurant. I will note that I would NOT want to be in the booths that directly face the bar as when it gets crowded it will be unpleasant to be so close to the crowd. After a bad start with the calamari (under-cooked and greasy), everything else were we served was PERFECT."
    Dined on 2/22/2014
  • "We had a great waitress at the bar and I had 2 very yummy drinks, something blueberry and a raspberry drink. dinner was terrific, RJ was a wonderful waiter, would make a point to ask for him next time. I had the $39. special. and my husband had the cowboy bone in rib eye. Outstanding. The sides we had also where great. Absolutely the best customer service around. I give it a Triple Yum."

  • "I'm not going to tell you about how great the food was this time, how great the service was, or how the entire experience was overall.........EXACTLY like every other time, everything the entire restaurant does, EVERYTHING was spot on. Love me some Sullivans."

  • "We had not been to Sullivan's in some time so this was the first time we have been there since they "renovated". It was extremely disappointing. We asked the bartender about the changes and she skipped no beat in saying they wanted to cater to a "hipper younger crowd". We'll congratulations you have accomplished this as we will not be back. Ever. Too bad as we used to enjoy our evening there. We couldn't hear ourselves talk. Ruth Chris will have our business from here on out."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "The dining experience is the best we have ever had at Sullivan's. The 6oz. steak on the $39 special was the best I had regarding taste and ease of carving. It felt I was cutting butter. The only annoying thing is we hadn't been there since the remodel. It looked really nice but opening up the area with the bar exposed to the main dining area along with the loud music made it very hard to communicate with the person at our table even though we were only about 2.5 feet apart. A glass wall needs to be placed between the bar and main dining to hold the loud noise down. We saw some people asking to move to the farthest part of the restaurant to get away from the noise."
    Dined on 2/16/2014
  • "My wife and I visited Sullivan's for the first time a day after Valentine's Day for a nice romantic dinner. The service was great, the food was exquisite, and the wine list was notable. The only problem we had was that we waited over 30 minutes to get a table even though we had reservations."
    Dined on 2/15/2014
  • "They advertised a $39.95 3 or 4 course meal on the radio, but when we got there it ended up being $99 for 2 people. I guess because it was Valentine's Day, oh well. The $99 special ended up being $200 after drinks, additional appetizer charge, tax, and 20% tip. The service, drinks, food and ambiance were all great. Would definitely go again, but due to the $$$ price it will definitely only be for special occasions."
    Dined on 2/14/2014
  • "Remodel lost its old charm, is not Sullivan's anymore. Service slow, food had no taste, bread came late, served desert with a spoon instead of fork. Noise level with band terrible. TVs in Sullivan's makes it just a sports bar. Ya'll probably are driving the real steak lovers to Ruth Chris or Flemmings. Too bad. Been coming to Sullivan's for 20 years."

  • "My parents drove to Austin from Dallas specifically to celebrate my mother's 75th birthday at your restaurant. We had previously dined with you and she had such a positive experience, she wanted to try you again. Though the restaurant is now opened up and a bit more noisy overall, our experience was again very nice. Our steaks were perfectly cooked, the wait staff were attentive and we enjoyed the lively atmosphere. We'll be back again next chance we get."
