    So the food is excellent and there is formality to the service which is in proportion to the high prices. So why is there a plasticized point of sale placard thrust in our faces to promote some red wine? And why come to us when delivering the check and trying to upsell a gift certificate? Ugh.

    For a reasonably high end steak house I found the service just ok. The main waitress didn't smile and was very direct. The steak was overcooked and not very tender. On a positive note, good atmosphere, bar area was lively without being loud and the waitress had alot of support from others around wine ordering and food delivery.

    We took our 7 and 9 year old daughters to Sullivan's for a special birthday dinner for the 2 of them even though it's not a place we would normally take kids. We mentioned that it was their birthday and the staff went out of their way to make it special for them. They each received a birthday card from the manager. They took a photo of us at our table and gave each of them a copy signed by all the wait staff. They don't have a kids menu, but they accommodated us with a fabulous 6 oz filet mignon and side dishes that we all shared. (Our kids love steak!) For dessert, they each got to choose anything they wanted from the dessert menu, complimentary, which was brought out with candles of course! It was a fabulous and memorable evening.

    I was very disappointed in Sullivan's....we had a special occasion planned and unfortunately the food was very subpar. The soup was cold (lobster bisque) and server gave us free desserts ...but still not good. My wife's steak was ordered medium well......came back rare -- took the kitchen 20 min and still came back rare. I also was not happy with the quality of meat.....from now on back to Ruth Chris.

    Sullivan's was very noisy until about 9:00. We went with the prixfix menu New York Strip steak. The flavor was fair at best. It was my husband's birthday so a free dessert was offered. He chose the warm chocolate cake. Warm not so much and the flavor artificial. They did serve a great Cosmo! I would not return to Sullivan's for steak or anything else.

    Sullivan's in Lincolnshire is our go to pace for special occasions, like birthdays and anniversaries. The menu is varied and includes seasonal selections. The wine list extensive and the food is perfectly prepared. The service is always great and the manager actually does stop by the table to check on things and say hello. My only disappointment is that the menu items do not include any additions. No starch or veggie. With the price of $42.00 for my rack of lamb and my wife's $39.00 sea bass, I would expect more. There are a number of side dishes available, but at an extra cost $8.00!!

    Times have been rough the last few years. For the first time in over a year, we could afford a meal where a budget wasn't the deciding factor. We enjoyed the calamari appetizer, a filet mignon, NY strip, horseradish mashed potatoes, vegetables, the warm chocolate cake and a S'more cake compliments on the house because they were out of cream brulee. Everything was excellent. Our server was wonderful, as well as the manager. The S'more isn't something we would usually order, but it was incredibly light and so delicious. We both remarked it was the best steak and dinner we had eaten in the last 5 years. HIGHLY recommended. Thanks Sullivan's for a memorable experience.

    I took my wife here for her birthday, and we could not have been more pleased. The service was nothing short of excellent. The wait-staff and managers were very friendly, and we even got a free dessert plus a picture of me and my wife to take home! The filet mignon was excellent, and extremely tender. I recommend the philly cheese steak egg rolls as an appetizer, they are very unique and quite tasty! The real star was the dessert however, the bananas foster bread pudding. WOW! The ambiance was fantastic. There was a group of musicians playing soft and very pleasant background music. I HIGHLY recommend this place for birthdays and anniversaries!

    I brought my wife to dinner for her birthday. Overall she enjoyed herself immensely. However I offer the following by way of positive critique. 1....After providing our food order, the server somehow confused my wife's filet with salmon; 2....We had to ask several times for table settings; 3...After being served our STEAK dinners, I had to ask our server whether we would be provided steak knives or do we use our butter knives. thankyou MJO

    We had the prix-fix on the menu.The appetizer which was described as cheese egg rolls stuffed with sirloin was so salty my husband could only eat 2 bites. I had calamari in a special sauce and they were very salty.We both had lobster/shrimp bisque and it was very salty.I had the steak filet and it was described on the menu as having a special salt/spice rub. It had the salt alright: I could not taste any spice. I ate half of my 6 oz. filet. We won't come back.

    3 of 4 food dishes were great; however, one came cold which often means a mix-up in the kitchen or a non-attentive staff. Everyone we dealt with worked to make the experience a good one. This is the most personable of the high end steak houses and always a good time.

    This was our first time here. The ambiance is very good. While the food is good (we also felt the use of garlic was a tad overwhelming) it is our opinion pricey leaving us thinking this is a special occasion restaurant for us. The service was good, however we waited over 20 minutes for our dessert leaving us time crunched for the play we were going to. We would recommend for special occasions.

    We eat at this Sullivans every year or so as we pass through Chicago on our way to Detroit. The Shanghai Calamari appetizer continues to be the standout! It is a meal in itself and is wonderful for both those that love Calamari and Spicy food. The rest of the menu was good, particularly the steaks, and their wine list was quite impressive. Another good meal - well worth the stop.

    Food was very good, however the restaurant was a little noisy and it was probably only at 60% capacity, if it was full I think the noise level would be extremely distracting. Service was great, wine list was outstanding. For folks on a diet, probably should have a selection of smaller portions. Also could cut down on the salt a little, the steaks here are great and really do not need much additional sauces or salt. Probably not a great place for a romantic dinner, seemed to be primarily larger groups for work functions and or parties of 6 or more people. The wines were a little over priced ( about 3 X the price at a wine store which usually its 2 to 2.5 X at most restaurants). Not sure if they had outdoor seating, but was not offered
