    This was my first time back to Sullivan's in a few years and it did little more than remind me why I don't eat here. The wine selection is sizeable and I found a really great bottle, which was the highlght of my experience. We started with raw oysters and they were extremely small and very dry. Considering our location, I think this is 100% unacceptable for November. Then my date and I decided to order our version of a surf & turf to share. He ordered the 12 oz. filet RARE and I ordered stone crab claws. The steak was overcooked, which is always my experience at Sullivan's. Instead of rare, it was slightly under medium. The crab claws were good, but I don't know if you really could make me dislike crabmeat. For sides, I had the brussel sprouts and they were good but all you could taste was the bacon...and I actually like the taste of brussel sprouts. He had a baked potato that looked pretty good once you added bacon, butter and sour cream. For the price, I know at least 3-4 other restaurants in the area that I prefer.

    Sullivan's was great. Our server, Justin, was very friendly and knowledgable. Recommended a great wine for us and even brought another one I had asked for earlier in the night. Had a great night, in a great atmosphere. Thanks Sullivan's.

    Food was great, steaks and tuna, ample pouring of drinks and a reasonably priced wine list coupled with great company made for an awesome evening. Add in the LSU victory the following night, and this has the makings of a great weekend.

    I have been to this restaurant many times in the past, but it has been approximately 2 years since my last visit. We arrived to the restaurant at 8:19 on Saturday night. The hostesses seemed like they didn't want to be there due to the LSU game. They sat my fiance and myself down with menus unopened and walked off without telling us who our server was going to be. The restaurant was 1/4 full at this point and we had no acknowledgement that we were seated. We waited a good ten minutes for someone to greet us and no one ever did. We were looking around and saw a group of employees standing in the service station by the kitchen, and they would look back at us then just walk off. So we got up and left.

    We dinned at Sullivan's for our 45th wedding anniversary, which was also my husband's 65th birthday. It was our first dining experience at Sullivan's and we were not disappointed. The service was wonderful, especially Sam our waitress. The food was wonderful and the wait was short. We enjoyed the special attention we received on our special night and were surprised with a photo! Our second visit, on Sept 12th lived up to our expectations. Food was wonderful as was the service. We are looking forward to dining at Sullivan's again!

  • Best restaurant in Baton Rouge
    LMRONEVIP
    Dined on 9/11/2014
    A steakhouse is not usually what you consider to be the "best" restaurant in a town. But, after trying virtually all of top rated restaurants in Baton Rouge while visiting over the past six months, we conclude that Sullivan's is the go-to choice. Excellent wine list, consistent execution by the kitchen, high quality food, and a staff thoroughly trained by GM, Leo Verde. We hosted two family events for 20 people in the private dining room which were very well executed and we finished our stay with a going away dinner for three in the main dining room. Simply the best place we visited.

    Food was Amazing but service not so great........ Atmosphere was perfect and food was delicious. Our waiter seemed to forget about our table. I think we seen him maybe twice during the entire night. When he came to put butter, sour cream etc on our potato he came with an empty tray and the little bit of butter he had left in it he slung it on the floor. IF we return we will request NOT to have this guy as our server.

    The price fixe was a good value. We received our 1st and 2nd courses promptly and enjoyed them. We had to wait a long time for our steaks and then the order was switched which we straightened out between us. My husband's steak was medium well instead of the medium I ordered, and I was enjoying his medium rare. Our waitress was friendly and offered to send her manager over which we declined. The restaurant was very busy! All in all we enjoyed our meal and will return.

    Great overall experience. My personal favorite. Specifically regarding food quality, consistency and service Sullivan's is great all around. Amazing bone in ribeye. Just being honest, RC steak house is not even close. RC is not bad but far from Sullivan's BR. In fact, if I am spending my money, Sullivan's gets my vote hands down.

    This was my first time dining at Sullivan's. It was a very good experience. The food was delicious and our waiter, Jerome, was outstanding! The only complaint I had was it was extremely noisy in the restaurant. Not from the staff but from other patrons. This was unexpected as it was a Tuesday night and there were no special events in town. I will definitely be going back!
