    Because I have an allergy it may be difficult for me to eat out and still get extraordinary food. But I can do that here. The Executive Chef makes sure that the meal is great while keeping it safe for me. Our server was very nice and had no problem with this. For those with no allergies, the food on the menu is incredible, from their fresh seafood to their well cooked meats and interesting appetizers and dessert, you can get something for everyone here.

    Our dinner was a corporate team event and everyone left well pleased with their meal and the service we received. The Calamari was the best I have ever had. The homemade Blue Cheese dressing, Drinks done to perfection and Crème Brule were highlights on our meal. Honestly, you could not ask for a better dining experience. Overall, Sulilvan's well worth the expense.

    From the moment we walked in the door we had a magical time! I made a reservation for my fiancé and he was greeted with a 'happy birthday!' From the manager when we arrived. We were treated to a romantic and classy night with amazing steak! What made it extra special was when the hostess took our picture and framed it for us I'm a frame signed by all the staff working that evening. Our night was so special and my fiancé felt so loved- it was more than I expected and we would definitely recommend them for their atmosphere, service, and good! 5 stars!

    Food was good, service was a little slow....the restaurant wasn't busy. I saw two people in the cooking area throwing something at each other....don't know what it was. And I saw the chef (had on the tall, white hat) eating in the kitchen. That made me wonder what he was eating and was he standing over something he was cooking.

    This is the 3rd time I've eaten here and it never disappoints. It's pricey, but not over-priced, you get what you pay for. I had never had the oysters before, but we ordered two orders of them. Probably the best I've ever had, and I've lived on both coasts. Thanks

    We had a family night and wanted a special place to celebrate with a special dinner. We are fortunate to have a Country Club that is wonderful for dining both food and service, but it does not have really high end plates and wines. This restaurant had both. Everyone enjoyed their entrees and the side dishes were excellent. We brought a special bottle of wine to enjoy, but also were enthralled with the wine list and the featured wines. My wife and I will definitely order off the wine list.

    The food was very good and the wine list is extensive. The only con to the experience was the noise level. We went for our anniversary and could not her each other talk. It wasn't what we were looking for, but for large groups, like the one next to us, it would be great. Definitely not a "date place" or quiet, romantic spot.

    Would have enjoyed the experience a lot more if it weren't for the cigar smell/smoke drifting in from the patio right outside. There's only a few feet from the inside bar seating to the outside patio - I would think there is supposed to be a wider smoking area margin than what they are allowing. Too bad.

    I have frequented this restaurant a number of times when traveling to the area. This time the experience was much less than expected. The waitperson was new and did not remember what had been ordered, failed to bring coffee without being reminded and just overall did not seem to be particularly engaged. The steaks were tremendously over-peppered. All agreed that about all you could taste was pepper. Such a waste on a good piece of meat. The wine steward was excellent and spent quite a bit of time with us talking about options, etc.

    Excellent food but $111 before tip for two people, with no alcohol, is a bit much. Also, the waitress claimed all of the sides were sized to be plenty for two. Seven spears of asparagus is not a serving for two. It is, at best, a moderate serving for one.

    The weekend was not going to be my first preference for a night out. But we had a reservation and that took the fear out of a long wait. The restaurant is low light and light sound, and very intimate, which was nice. I had the special which was a filet with crab and creole butter and he had the 22oz cowboy ribeye and we were both very happy with our choices. The server was attentive and no glass ever went empty. The sommelier stopped to check on us early and offer his services. We had dessert on the house for his birthday and I think that was the best. They took our picture, put it in a little black mat frame that was signed by the whole staff! All in all an exceptional evening!

    We were there to celebrate a co-worker retiring this month. Five of us received our food but the other 3, who ordered meatloaf, did not receive their meal. Apparently there was an issue with the meatloaf. If there was an issue this should have been disclosed to us in the beginning so that they could have ordered something us. The five of us who received our meal finished our meal before the other 3 received their replacement meal. Simply not acceptable. The restaurant did comp those 3 meals as well as the desserts. This was intended to be a special time with our co-worker but unfortunately it was not.

    Food and service were good. I thought that you should have a few little less expensive wines on the list. Like most restaurants you take much too large a markup on your wines. I saw wines on the list for $60 that I can buy RETAIL for $20 or less. In Europe the markups are much less.

    This was our first time at Sullivan's after friends recommended it. We were there for our anniversary. From the minute we walked in until we left, the service was outstanding. Our waitress, Karly, was so helpful, informative and couldn't have been nicer. We ordered a couple of things she recommended, the cheesesteak egg roll appetizer and the bourbon peppercorn sauce for my filet, which was done exactly right. They have an almost endless wine selection. Everything we had was prepared to perfection and we look forward to eating at Sullivan's again! Highly recommend!!

    One of our group's steaks was not cooked as ordered and I feel the executive chef handled it very professionally. He cooked the steak again and then personally brought it to the table to make sure it was as the guest ordered. I also feel the manager on duty was very professional and welcoming.

    My 22oz bone-in ribeye was as good as it gets. My wife's halibut special was very good. Mac & cheese was special. The "table-dressed" baked potato was nothing special. Their only miscue was a banana's foster bread pudding which both of us agreed may be the worst bread pudding we have eaten anywhere. If you like pineapple, don't miss the Knockout Martini.

    I consider Sullivan's to be a special occasion restaurant. The prices are on the high side so I only visit there when I want to have a memorable dining experience. While the service was very good and the atmosphere is high end, I was somewhat disappointed with the food. I had a steak, my guest, the salmon. These were delicious, a bit heavy on the salty side. We ordered a side of asparagus which was at best, plain and a bit oily. For the fees charged, I feel I should be overly impressed with every aspect of my visit--especially the food. Nice place--overall rating leans more towards atmosphere than the food.

    This upscale steakhouse continues to be a great addition to the Kansas City market. With the departure of Ruth's Chris Sullivan's is nicely positioned to take up some of the slack. Similar quality steaks, huge sides and lovely desserts. The management makes regular visits to your table and seems genuinely interested in you having a great experience.

    For the price, my expectations are fairly high and Sullivan's didn't deliver on my expectations. The service was the best part - attentive and informative. The food was less so. The filet mignon was OK. The garlic mashed potato side was OK. The appetizer/salad/soup were OK. That about sums up the meal - it was OK.

    we set at the bar, arrived for happy hour on Thursday, got the $7 shrimp appetizer which was very good, enjoyed the $7 wine and martinis, we both ordered Cesar salads and they were fine but not any thing to brag about, we both had the steak and lobster special for $44 and ordered a side of asparagus, we ordered our steaks medium rare, they came out medium, one lobster was over cooked and mushy, the entrees did not come with any sides, not even bread, very thing is al a cart. We thought this place was expensive for what you get compared to others. it was hard to get waited on at the bar even though there were 3 bartenders, we were offered another steak but didn't won't to wait so we were compted 2 chocolate desserts, which were quite good
