    We had great service and for the most part great food. We didn't care for the Seafood Sampler as it was overpriced for the quality of food on it. The steaks we had were amazing as well as the sides. I would recommend and would go again.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 8/27/2014
    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.

    My husband and I went to Sullivan's to celebrate our 7 year anniversary during restaurant week. The food was wonderful and so was the service! I've eaten at pretty much every steakhouse in Denver and I think Sullivan's has the best steaks! We'll be back again and again and again!

    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

  • waited to sit, but good dinner
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 8/23/2014
    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.

    What happened to the wonderful Sullivan's of former years? The filet was a thin cut, unlike the fat, juicy steaks of old. They were okay, but not exceptional in any way. The lobster was lukewarm and did not taste fresh. We liked our server, but she recommended a wine that was not representative of what we received. She was unapologetic that we did not like it, and then recommended that we cork it to "enjoy at home" later. Further, the dessert was horrible. When she commented that I did not eat more than one bite, I gave up. She just didn't get it. We will not dine here again and caution others seeking the Sullivan's of a decade ago to choose a different restaurant.

    Went on a Friday night in August. Reservations 7:30 p.m., Valet, we were aked to drive around the block to get to the stand, about 20 feet from our vehicle.???? Really, the valet attendant couldn't do that? We were seated right away, quiet dining area, service quick, and wonderful appetizer and entree suggestions from the waiter. Food was so wonderful, Scallops, and Summer Fling( signature Filet, and 1/2 Lobster) were done to perfection. The experience was one of the best we've encountered in Downtown Denver. After dinner we went into the bar which had live band playing, elegant yet comfortable place to eat and listen to live music. We'll be returning in the future. Dining area was quiet, Bar was vibrant.

  • The Steakhouse That Gave Up
    Gene
    Dined on 8/3/2014
    From beginning to end - a very sub par restaurant. As we approached the hostess, she is in conversation with a waitress over the coupon section of a newspaper. Hostess was frumpy and rude. The table is set for 4 (we are 2), which is cleared once we are seated. The waiter was horrible. He goes through a wine tasting with a screw cap wine (which should not even be on the tasting menu) and does not bring my martini until after the first course (nor the bread, nor the water, nor the tray of accompanying items for my oysters). The martini is undrinkable - it was so dirty that it was green. Sitting across from us was a man in a stained plain white t-shirt and pajama bottoms - nice ambience. Maybe Sunday nights should be avoided.

    Sullivan's has long been our go-to place for celebration dinners. The food this time was fine, although my husband's steak was overcooked and the Oscar style toppings fell right off. I go the impression the plates had been sitting under a heating lamp too long. I have to say the dessert options have gone downhill. There used to be a variety of soufflés, and the waiter would ask you at the beginning of the meal if you'd like to order one, as they took some time to prepare. Even after they were removed from the menu, they could still be accommodated upon request. No more. Our waiter didn't know what we were talking about. The rest of the dessert options are sub-par.... we ordered the creme brûlée and the flavor was lacking.

    We had reservations at 7pm, arrived early and were seated right away. The service was friendly, attentive, pleasant and professional. We both had the summer fling surf and turf. I asked for garlic to be minced into the butter which they did and it was all delicious. My partner ordered a bottle of wine - delicious. We had a very pleasant evening and to my surprise they have a humidor. So we also enjoyed a cigar with an after dinner drink out on the patio. It was lovely.
