    Dined on 8/19/2014

  • "Summer Fling special was delicious! The staff was attentive. The wine recommendation was excellent. They handled my celiac disease extremely well. Our family of five loved celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary there! We can't wait to return!"
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "My steak was great; my wife's lobster was undercooked--probably she should have sent it back. All the sides, etc., were good. Very pretty inside; music annoying--too "rocky" and too loud."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I truly enjoyed Sullivan's. My wife and I went there for our anniversary. Everyone was extremely nice and the waiter was great. At the end of our evening, a hostess came by to take our picture. A few minutes later she returned with our picture and it had been signed by everyone. We will make this our new yearly anniversary outing."

  • "This was a birthday dinner for my lady. We were greeted with smiles which made us feel very comfortable. Out waiter, Will, was the greatest. He was there when we needed him, his recommendations were spot on and he was fun and extremely helpful. The food was outstanding. We had the boned in filet and it was a real treat. They provided us without charge a 25 year old scotch as a birthday treat. We were there for about 2 1/2 hours and enjoyed every minute of our dinning experience. On our favorite list and highly recommend. Easy to get to and parking was abundant. Sullivan's has a sophisticated charm with a comfortable feeling. Great combination."

  • "Service was outstanding and the food was great! Good find!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Lobster bisque was highlight of the evening as well as dessert. Fast. Steak was salty and one note with nothing added to it. Disappointed there was only one Riesling by the glass on the menu."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "My family loves Sullivans. You always have the best food. But on this last visit we were disappointed that there was no spinach salad with the bacon dressing. Also, my shrimp cocktail was not to good because the shrimp were rubbery and tasteless. I brought this to the attention of the server and he said he was sorry to hear it but did nothing about it. All this is unusual for Sullivans. Our previous visits were always a great dining experience."

  • "This is our third Sullivan and 4th time. This one like the others was fantastic. All are a bit pricey, but, you get what you pay for. A don't miss!"

  • "I have been to Sullivan's numerous times for team dinners, board of director dinners and date nights. The food and staff never disappoint!"

  • "Friday night dinner reservation for two. Valet parking. Greeted, seated promptly and then ignored. Waitress greeted us briefly, took drink order. Waited 15 minutes for drinks. Water poured the wait again. Four courses finally ordered with first being lobster bisque. Hot bread not delivered until asked for twice. Ironically "two" plates of hot bread delivered just as bisque was finished. Then a rushed pace and very poor pacing of courses. Second and third courses delivered on top of each other with no mercy. Plates from finished first course not cleared even after second course placed. Entire experience felt hurried and indifferent. Food quality (filet & half lobster) only average in preparation, quality and presentation."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Sullivan's is a classic American steakhouse. The ambience is typical -- and good. Live jazz on Friday and Saturday nights add to the mix. The main product, steaks are excellent as are the usual sides. Sullivan's , unlike Del Frisco's or Mortens tends to deliver normal size rather than huge portions both in the steaks and sides. This reflects itself in the price which is moderately less than those other two. Mid range wine list is certainly decent , but will not blow anyone away. Definitely recommended."

  • "By far our favorite restaurant - always our choice to celebrate our anniversary! The quality of food, service and atmosphere is always top notch! Never leave disappointed!"

  • "I was impressed with the quick service received. The server was very attentive and the food was EXCEPTIONAL! The steak was the most tender I have had in a long time. I am looking forward to the next dining experience."

  • "I took my daughter out for dinner during restaurant week. The waiter obviously made assumptions about us. He immediately removed the wine glasses without asking if we wanted wine ( I ordered wine). He did not go over the evening specials, we ordered from the regular menu. When another member of the wait staff engaged us in a brief conversation, he asked her why she was talking to us. Granted I called her over because she seemed so approachable. I noticed how others waiters were interacting with their patrons and it was a distinct difference. I left him a tip not because of the level of service but because his lack of service and attitude indicated he thought I was not going to."

  • "I used open table for reservations. I arrived at the hostesses table on time, and still waited for 15 minutes or more."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Sullivan's is a top rated restaurant and owned by the same company as Del Frisco's. Del Frisco's was great; Sullivan's was awful. The filet was so overcooked, we had to send it back; my New York Strip was tough and both had so much pepper they were barely palatable. The cheesecake tasted like frozen supermarket fare. While the service there is supposed to be outstanding, they brought the steaks without steak knives. Can you imagine a top tier restaurant serving steak without steak knives? I had to use the bread cutting knife. Our friend cut his filet with a butter knife, since that's all he had. We had asked the waiter for separate checks, so of course the bill arrived on one check. Needless to say, they won't be seeing us again."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "We went to Sullivan's on a couples date. Everyone loved what they ate. We will be back again."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Sullivan's is hands down, the best steakhouse we have ever been to. The atmosphere is wonderful for fine dinning & special occasion dinners. When it is not Restaurant Week the volume is perfect. The food is amazing & if you wish to have a sauce on your steak, we have not tried a bad one yet but don't worry. The steaks are amazing without the sauce & not lost in the sauce if you have one."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "I got the salmon and it was overcooked (too well done) and a little on the dry side inside. But!- it was still tasty and delicious. I would love for there to be brighter or more lighting overhead. The dimness is such that reading menus make the eyes strain a bit more than normal. Service was good too. Some might think the service is a bit overdone but in my own opinion, better it be attentive than not. I enjoy coming to Sullivan's and will continue to do so."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "My husband and I enjoyed our dinner so much on Saturday evening. Our waiter, I believe his name was Richard, did an excellent job. He was friendly, polite, checked in just the right number of times, and made sure everything was perfect. I loved the kale salad and my husband's sliced NY Strip was amazing - so flavorful and tender. Of course, we topped it off with the chocolate mousse, a dessert that I appreciate, since I am allergic to gluten and can rarely have dessert out. I look forward to our next visit."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Everything was great. It was loud and a little slow, but it was Queens Feast week."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Our entire meal, from cocktails to dessert, and everything in between was delicious!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "We arrived for our reservation an hour early because my wife's flight landed at Charlotte Douglas early. The hostess was friendly and able to seat us immediately. The waitstaff was attentive but not intrusive, friendly but not overly "chatty". The food was very good, steaks cooked to our specifications, and the shrimp and lobster bisque was quite nice. We left the restaurant at about the time the dining room was really filling up, and it was going to get a little lively, but not excessively so. Valet parking was complementary, and they had an umbrella to walk my wife to the door because of a very light drizzle, and that was a very nice touch. We would definitely eat there again, and I have recommended Sullivan's to several friends."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "The food was incredible. I was extremely impressed. The drinks were great as well and they did not rush us through dinner like many restaurants do. The server was not the best but everyone else who worked there was extremely friendly"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Sullivan's has one of the best steaks in town, in an excellent atmosphere with exceptional service. Great for special occasions, romantic dining, entertaining a client and for groups. The staff are well trained, friendly and professional. Southend location is convenient to uptown, Dilworth, Eastover and Myers Park."

  • "Food was soooo good. Portions seemed small, but I left very full and very satisfied."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "This restaurant has changed. First of all, when you are paying upwards to $50 for a steak at a restaurant with white tablecloths, why is there not a dress code? People were coming in here like they were dressed for the beach. I asked for a table on the reservation. We were seated in a booth. The place was so noisy, you had to yell across the booth. The wine cork broke apart on a very expensive bottle of wine. I questioned it, but we were served that bottle anyway. Steaks are not "prime", but only "choice". Steaks were overdone and we had to wait for one to be reordered. Appetizer of oysters was the wrong one and manager had to correct. This was a disappointing experience and I would not recommend this restaurant. We will not be back."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "Excellent steak. Cooked exactly to medium rare, tasty and soft. Chocolate mousse should be called milk chocolate mousse. It needs either more dark chocolate/cocoa or a hint of cayenne. Service was excellent."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The steak is wonderfully seasoned and of great quality. The server was warm, friendly and helpful."

  • "We chose to go to Sullivan's for our 45th wedding anniversary. We can always count on incredible food, impeccable service and a lovely atmosphere. Once again we were not disappointed. No restaurant can do justice to a medium rare steak like Sullivan's, ours were wonderful, and cooked to perfection. Sullivan's is the go to place anytime."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We were seated in an annex as opposed to the main dining area even though it was 90% empty when we arrived. Our salads were soggy from being pre-made and soaking in dressing. The vinaigrette dressing on one salad was bitter - caesar salad dressing was also bland. We each ordered steak and asked for them to be prepared differently - they all came out medium well. The steaks sat on a bed of dry mashed potatoes. We ordered a side of green beans in cashews which had no flavor at all. It was a very disappointing experience."
    Dined on 7/21/2014
  • "We visited Sullivan's during the Queen's Feast for our daughter's birthday. We all ordered the 6 oz fillet. selecting med rare, medium, and medium. The medium rare steak was cooked medium to well. One of the medium steaks was cooked medium to well and the other medium steak was cooked well. We were not happy about our steaks. The salads and desserts were great."
