    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.

    The steak was good and so was the salad. The side dish of asparagus were a joke. There were only about 12 stalks, not good quality and prepared very poorly for what they charge as a side item. The restaurant is very pretty inside and our waiter was terrific!

    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

    After having a terrible experience on Valentine's day, we decided to give this restaurant another try and celebrate my boyfriend's birthday. Sullivan's went out of their way to make an amazing experience for us. The managers we're very helpful to the staff, our waiter might of been the best waiter I have ever had in my life, you could tell he loved what he does for a living, thank you Nick! Everyone helping Nick was also so professional and pleasant. Also, the hostess with the long blonde hair was amazing, she took our picture and then the staff signed it. It was one of the best, if not THE BEST dining experience we have ever had. Thank you so much Sullivan's!

    OpenTable Diner Since 2010
    Dined on 8/8/2014
    My 93rd year old mother specifically requested that we (herself, me, and my husband) go to dinner with her at Sullivan's to celebrate a special event. The server seemed pleasant, but certainly not as attentive as we were expecting. On two different occasions we had to ask for silverware. We also had to request delivery of the green bean side dish that we ordered. I look for consistency and the wow factor. Ever since the manager that opened the restaurant several years ago (I believe her name was Sherri??) moved on, I find the service to be inconsistent and not up to the standards that I had come to expect from Sullivan's. Something has changed at Sullivan's and I will probably find alternatives to celebrate a special occasion.

    My first experience with Sullivan's Steak House was in Houston, Texas and it was awesome, My 2nd, 3rd and 4th was in Austin, Texas and again it was awesome. Since being in Kansas City, I have gone several times, this last visit was with my company. Everyone commented on how great it was and we were still able to discuss business without yelling across the table. Excellent experience.

    To purchase a $140 bottle of wine before dinner, sit in the bar area before going to our table an to have both waitresses that wasn't very good. Bar waitress never came back to the table to check on us an the dinner waitress didn't tell us anything about the steaks the different butters. Fumbled lair with words. Friendly but not good service

    It's a nice restaurant, but not great. When I spend $46 on a steak, with no sides included, I expect a great steak. It was only a good steak. In short, the food good, but it doesn't live up to the price. The exception was the shaved Brussels Sprouts, which may have been the best Brussels Sprouts that I've ever had. Also, a little too much noise from the music in the bar spilled over into the dining room. That may be okay in some instances, but I was entertaining business associates and the level was distracting.

    My wife and I enjoyed a wonderful dinner at Sullivan's. Great service and food!! We had one issue with the bill which was mostly resolved, and I sent an email to the restaurant after that and never did hear back from them. That's not the type of attention to customer service I expect from a place such as Sullivan's. Nonetheless, we'll still go back, since the dining experience was otherwise top-notch.

    The food was amazing, the wine was incredible and the service was impeccable. The restaurant was fabulous! Our evening would have been perfect if the three year old boy who seemed to be very impressed with his vocal cords would have stayed home! Parents, please find a babysitter!!!! This is not a restaurant for children who don’t know how to behave. Or maybe it’s the parents who don’t know how to make their children behave.

    Since our community recently lost our Ruth's Chris we've been looking for a suitable replacement. It appears that Sullivan's is it. Great steaks, large alcarte sides, and excellent desserts. The wine list is extensive (maybe too large) and a varied choice of wines by the glass. The servers seem well trained and willing to meet your every needs. The manager stopped by twice to make sure everything was OK, and he seemed genuinely interested our food and service. We will continue to visit.

    We have dined at fine restaurants all over the world. Sullivans isn't one. Waited 10 minutes in foyer for an indifferent hostess to appear. Ordered filets, and they had all the flavor of cardboard--one of worst steaks i've ever eaten. Au gratin potato side was just a bowl of half cooked spuds swimming in cheese & butter. 98% of their wines are ignorantly highly overpriced. Only bright spot of evening was the charming young man from Hawaii who waited our table. Will NEVER go back!

    The food was nothing special to me, but the service made the experience exceptional. I did enjoy the Calamari appetizer and Bananas Foster Bread Pudding quite a bit. My salmon was good, a little lacking in flavor, though. Our server was excellent. We were celebrating my parent's 30th anniversary and the hostess set up the table with confetti and a very nice card for the occasion as well as offering complementary dessert. I think it really made them feel special.

    We wanted to go to an early dinner celebration. Appetizer was excellent ( calamari) the sides mashed potatoes was the best we had. I had lamb and was a little disappointed. The steak my wife had was very good. The coconut cream pie was the best we ever had. The only other disappointment was the coffee. It was not hot enough an was lacking in body and flavor. Something you should consider is the last thing I had was the coffee.

    we had not been to Sullivan's in awhile and celebrated our 35th wedding anniv there. Our server, Billy, was great! The gal that seated us gave us a lunch menu even tho we were there for dinner and Billy made sure we got the dinner menu. I know we got extra attention for our occasion but ALL the food we had was delicious. Billy made it extra special with his attention to us and great service. He is a very likeable person and very good at this job even tho he said it was his first job as a waiter and only been there 3 months. We were very pleased with the whole night and will definitely be back.
