    I hate to be critical, but you go out to dinner for a special meal with guests from Europe, you hope to impress. Unfortunately Sullivan's was not the right choice. This is the second time we have been there this year and the second time we got the same surely, condescending waiter and this time the food was terrible. We did not complain because that isn't our style, we just won't be back.

    The food was very good and the service was outstanding. My steak was perfectly cooked, with just a little bit of pink in the middle. My dates salmon was cooked to perfection. We would return for a meal, even if it wasn't a special occasion.

    I used to be a regular patron of Sullivan's and have many fond memories of the ribeye steaks, au gratin potatoes and raspberry soufflé. Much to my chagrin, those are all now MEMORIES. The wait staff was lovely as always but things went downhill after we ordered. My Caesar salad was a tragedy and my ribeye had so much salt on it that I could barely enjoy the fact that they cooked it to the medium rare I requested. When they bought out my steak, they also brought out side dishes that had halved in size since the last time I was there. Yes, it gets worse. The au gratin tasted like parboiled potatoes from a bag mixed with an equally pedestrian cheese sauce. We skipped dessert altogether.

    Food was great and prepared correctly. Decor and ambiance seemed cheap and low grade, service staff seemed more suited to Johnny Carrino's rather than a $150 - $200 a dinner for a couple steakhouse. For the money I would not recommend the restaurant, way too many options in the metro area that offer equal food and a legitmate higher end dining experience. Off the top of my head, a nice steakhouse should not have brainless high school girls who are easily confused greeting customers.

    My wife and I have been coming to Sullivan's for our wedding anniversary dinners for 5 years. The food, service, and ambiance create a very romantic and memorable experience for us each year. As long as Sullivan's is there on the corner, we will be coming each year for our anniversary. Thank you Sullivan's.

    We ordered 2 of the specials recommended by our server, but we never asked the price of the meals. One was a menu special listed at $42 (filet and half lobster), but we were charged $29 for the lobster and $57 for the filet because we asked for the bone-in version. When the price is that different, the customer should have be made aware of the difference ahead of time. We would not have asked for the upgrade if we had known the price. The server and manager were very solicitous and checked on us frequently throughout the meal. And although we were taken aback by the final bill, we will definitely be back--just wiser than this time.

    It took 5 mins after being seated before anyone came over to fill our waters, then another 5 mins before our waitress came over. She took our order. It took 10-15 mins to receive our pre-entree salads (caesars) and almost 30 minutes to get our steaks. Before our steaks came out, I saw a male manager going to tables around us asking how was everything, but he kept walking past us. I finally grabbed his attention and let him know that we'd been waiting quiet awhile. When our steaks came out the sauces were switched between my steak and my boyfriend's. The waitress didn't seem to care but forced out, "Would you like me to fix that for you." Because of how long everything took to get out, we said no, thank you. Overall, not worth the money.

    This used to be a place we really enjoyed, but now totally unimpressed with the food quality. There was an odor when we entered. We were greeted by some friendly faces and taken right to our table. We were promptly greeted by the waiter, who provided very good service all throughout the evening. We ordered the knock out martinis, which were good. I had the Caesar salad, it was not horrible, but not great. I had the NY strip, medium rare with the Cajun butter. It was rare, seemed raw in places. The mashed potatoes were okay. The mushrooms weren't so great. the creamed spinach was terrible. The key lime pie, that was good. After this time I don't believe I will return.

    We ordered oysters on the half shell as an appetizer. They were delicious. Pre-dinner: we each had a Caesar salad which was fresh and crisp. Dinner: we had a filet mignon with mashed potatoes and a New York strip with button mushrooms. The steaks were slightly overcooked for what we asked for. We asked for them to be medium rare and they were medium well. However, even though overcooked for our liking, the seasoning on the meat was tasty. For dessert, we ordered key lime pie which was on point. The staff was friendly and very accommodating. Overall, it was a nice experience.

    It was the tail end of 5280 week and given that and all the other times we've been here they didn't miss a beat! I prefer their dinner service and the male staff (sorry - don't judge me) because I find they are much more attentive and less moody (yes, at Sullivan's too). The salads were fresh and crisp, the bread was amazing and the Steaks cooked perfectly. Jeff was our Server for the evening and everything was timed perfectly, thanks again, Jeff! I was so excited when we first arrived and sat in the bar that their Private Reserve Cab was back on the wine menu. It's worth every $13 a glass, I just wish the pours were bigger - maybe next time I'll just get a bottle and take the rest home.

    Sullivan's is truly a gem and you would never guess it by the outside however, once inside the décor is very nice. The wine list was very extensive and they gave us excellent service, not once were our Champagne glasses empty. We dined during Restaurant week and the "special" menu had many of their normal items. Beware if you order the chicken because it is a huge portion and be prepared to take some home but absolutely delicious! The New York strip was excellent as well.

    The food was good. The service was good... its just like every other steak house. I had the Salmon and thought it was pretty salty. The filet and NY Strip were decent. It wasn't bad food at all, but it didn't blow us away. Our server was attentive, patient and truly great. There was staff running around the whole place and that was awesome We came here for Restaurant week and the price was perfect, but I wouldn't pay regular pricing for this experience on a regular night. A couple Shining lights: The calamari was AWESOME!! And I really liked the Mushroom Bisque soup. If you're looking for decent food and a good atmosphere - Sullivan's is perfect for that.

    Sullivans is an underrated steak house. We enjoy our meals here and particularly for Restaurant Week. Perhaps because it was restaurant week, the staff seemed a bit pushy with appetizers, and second drinks. Appaling was when they asked four of us all over the age of 70 if we wanted a glass of milk with our desert.

    My boyfriend and I had a reservation at 8, but we showed up at 7:30 just to be safe. We asked the hostess if she could seat us before 8 that'd be great, however, they all forgot about us! People were coming in after 8 and getting seated before us, and we were the ones with a reservation. When I went up at 8:20 to see what was going on, she simply said "oh ya! Sorry we can seat you next".I mean granted I wouldn't have minded waiting 20 if I showed up at 8, but we showed up at 7:30 and were forgotten about. The food was good, our waiter was great, but the whole hostess seating ordeal ruined my night. I might be back, just not anytime soon.

    This was for Denver Restaurant Week and the food was good and a good sample of their larger menu. I was disappointed though that even with a reservation we were told it was 25 minutes additional until our table was ready. We were later offered an outdoor table to avoid the remainder of the 25 minute wait, which we took but I was disappointed to see that we were the only table seated outside the main outdoor dining area and were instead seated at a smaller, lower table in the outdoor bar area where other patrons later began smoking cigars. Prior to this I'd only had great experiences at Sullivan's and was surprised that this visit was so different than all of the others.

    The food was incredible. If you go with a large party(We had 8) plan to wait. We had a 7:30 reservation and did not get seated till almost 8:30. Most restaurants would put some smaller tables together and dodge this problem. Not sure why this was not an option. I will go again, but never with a larger group. 2-4 max

    We planned a group dinner there for restaurant week. We made a reservation for 14 people at 7:15pm, and the staff did not seat us until 8:05. We asked the hostess 3 times while we were waiting when we would get a table and each time she indicated the staff were setting up our table as we spoke. Once we finally sat down, the service and food were good. My filet was cooked perfectly and the sides were delicious. The only negative I would say about food is that the beer selection is pretty unremarkable considering Sullivan's is located in one of the more saturated craft brewing markets in the country. The whisky selection was decent, though. All in all, it was a good dinner and night out.

    We celebrated an anniversary having dinner at Sullivan's on a Saturday night. The main dining room was extremely noisy so we sat in a smaller room with tolerable noise. Great service, but the food was not: lukewarm sides, very tough lobster tail, a filet steak overcooked and very thin. One other filet was very good and cooked perfectly and the wedge salad was tasty. Probably won't recommend this restaurant to others.
