    We normally enjoy going to Sullivans for their food and lively atmosphere but our last 2 visits has been not been great. Our service was slow. She asked if we wanted a minute to look over the menu but the minute turned into 10 minutes and having to stop her as she walked by the table to tell her we were ready to order. The ribeye steak was not cooked properly, we asked for medium rare plus and it came out still cool in the center. In my opinion any upscale restaurant that doesn't cook your steak properly should take the pricey steak off your check since one person has to wait while the other eats. That way you feel some sense of regard from the establishment about our date night away from home.

    Despite reservation table location in enclosed porch without any atmosphere . Both steaks came well done despite order for medium and medium rare. After complaint it took 20! minutes to get new ones . Veggies were cold by that time, got new ones. Too expensive for an experience like that!

    My work colleagues and I had a wonderful dinner experience at Sullivan's. Our server was excellent, the management staff was excellent, and they truly made us feel like VIPs. I know for a fact that my colleagues definitely left Sullivan's with a very high opinion of the restaurant, food, management, and will all definitely be back to other Sullivan's or Del Frisco's restaurants when they are on additional work trips. Thank you to the whole staff at Sullivan's for making our experience a wonderful and memorable one.

  • Great Steakhouse For The Price

    In a crowded field of steak houses in Indianapolis, Sullivan's is a great choice. It provides excellent quality of food at a reasonable prices. Staff provides service at the right level - there when you need them but not overbearing. The fixed-price menu choice with appetizer, salad, and entre is a particularly good deal.

    We chose to dine with you early to have a nice quiet time to catch up and enjoy one of your lobster and filet specials. Our waitress was very nice. Drinks and dinner were very good. As it got later in the evening, there were more people there. Not a problem until the waiter at the next table was rather loudly encouraging the folks to try various things but unfortunately for us he was very close to us and we could not hear anything except his voice. They really looked capable of reading the menu.I know he was just trying to service his table but he needed to be aware of surrounding tables. I am just mentioning this as a reminder. Everything was great, sharing a desert was a super idea. We left feeling presently full and will be back.

    I use to frequent Sullivans quite a bit prior to the Great Recession. I was definitely not disappointed knowing that this was a once a quarter date night. As always the food was delicious & the service was impeccable. I have always preferred Ruth's (downtown) ambience over Sullivans, but the food & service has always been best at Sullivans.

    I took my good friend and our three 9 yr old daughters last night, and none of us had any idea of what to expect. Too often when taking children out to dinner, especially at a 'nice' restaurant, staff treat you as a burden...NOT AT SULLIVAN'S!!!! Garrett was awesome, the complimentary valet parking staff were super friendly...I honestly cannot rave enough about the ENTIRE staff! Oh, and the steaks...OMG..s.o good!! Like cutting butter! They even ended up giving us 2 complimentary desserts for our table, and I have NO idea why! This is an amazing experience, and I am SO glad I had the opportunity to share it with my favorite people!! Despite the cost (worth EVERY SINGLE penny), we will be making this an annual event for the five of us!!

    I was out on business in the Indy area and chose Sullivan's based on other customer reviews. It did not disappoint! I ordered off of the $39 fixed price menu. The cheesesteak eggrolls are an absolute must! I could have made a meal off of those all night, unfortunately there were only 2 on the plate. The second option was the Caesar salad which was absolutely delicious! I special ordered my filet to be cooked medium plus and they nailed it! The white cheddar au gratin potatoes were the only item that was good but didn't stand out. I was nervous to try the horseradish mashed potatoes for fear they would be too spicy. The staff was pleasant and attentive. I never had an empty glass and bread was brought out immediately. Great experience!

    Selected Sullivan's for our 28th anniversary dinner. I've eaten at Sullivan's in Chicago many times. Overall, this was a good experience with great service. My filet was a little overcooked, but the staff made up for it with offers of complimentary wine or dessert. I would still go back since they seemed to truly care.

    Sullivan's never ceases to maintain its quality: the best in food, the best in service and in ambiance. The service-from the at-the-door-greeting, to drink refills is attentive, but never overbearing. The food? Always delicious! Special occasion? How about a photo (such a nice surprise!!) taken and presented before leaving-all in an attractive keepsake holder. Attention to detail. Classy. Timeless. Delicious.

    This was my husbands favorite steakhouse, so we were excited to get a babysitter finally and enjoy an evening out. However, the food was just ok and took too long to come out. We thought they were running out of mint leaves for the mojitos because there were fewer and fewer in each drink, and not muddled. The server wasn't attentive which could have made up for some of the food delays.

    1. Why do high end restaurants allow their servers to use "we" in their speech, for instance, "What are we having?" or "How are we doing?" I am not inviting the server to join my party for dinner. 2. For the 2nd time in a row my "medium" steak was past medium and more well done. Overall, service was good and the Brussel sprouts were excellent.

    Always enjoy lunch or dinner at Sullivans. Has so much class, which so many restaurants lack these days. From the hostess to the servers, every employee is personable & good at what they do. They also bring warm bread, and room temp butter out, both very good. So many rest. serve unheated bread & cold butter. For lunch we had a kale salad, liked that they were staying with the times of eating healthier. Portion with chicken was quite large.

    we made reservations, when seated and ready to order, we were told that the summer special was no longer available. I complained and was the told they did have one special left. The lobster was dry and tough. I was totally disappointed! The waiter had too many tables to handle at once and was not able to assist when needed. We still left a generous tip, even thigh it was not deserved.

Food was good except Caesar salad was sent back due to bitter taste in dressing - this issue was promptly corrected. Table server was great.
