    Went with two other couples. Great place to enjoy others company. Both my wife's steak and mine were very blah. Tasted like a plain old cooked piece of meat not a lot of flavor. Great evening but food could of been a lot better.

    Very very slow service, total time on wait from 8pm reservations to getting our food 2 1/2 jours, took food to go instead. Everyone else had great service but us. Maybe because we are a gay couple but our waiter was to busy with other tables, including the one next to us. Wish we got the service and attention like the rest.

    I've pretty much visted all of the big prime steakhouses and let me say, this one did not disappoint. The steak was cooked exactly to my liking and the flavor, wow! Every bite was a little peice of heaven. Service was great. Was not disappointed one bit. However for a place this pricey, I wouldn't expect anything less.

    This is our go to restaurant for all special occassions and when we want a fabulous steak! The signature knockout martini is incredible. The service is consistently excellent. All staff are knowlegable to menu items, wine lists, and suggestions. The atmosphere is perfect with high energy but has a romantic feel. The General Manager Randy is on point for maintaining service excellence. We always feel like family at Sullivans!

    Had dinner here with my Girlfriend to celebrate her birthday. The meal was great and Kevin our server was excellent. He gave good recommendations on a few new wines to try and was very attentive to us, even though it was a busy night. The food was excellent and the wait wasn't long at all. The steaks were cooked to perfection and our sides were out of this world!

    We decided to celebrate a birthday at Sullivan's because of their advertised summer special of a filet and half a main lobster. There were 3 of us and only 2 of us got the main lobster because they ran out. The other person in our party got some small lobster tails. The lobster was very tough and chewy. It seemed to be over cooked. The service was very good. The salads and side dishes were also very good.

The food was good table location was right by the kitchen door. I would definitely go back and give it a second chance because the food is very good

Everything was perfect from the moment we sat down until the moment we left. Drinks were good, food was superb, and service was exceptional.

    I'm from Austin and the Sullivan's there is quite a 180 from Naperville. We had reservations and didn't get seated until 30 minutes after our time. The dining area is so crammed with tables it's impossible to not hear what your neighbor is saying. The drinks and food took forever and my filet was chewy. I have had better food at an Outback, especially the cut and quality of meat. The waiter was extremely young and nice but had no clue what service was about. Way too pricy and staff was a bit stuffy for a restaurant who can't deliver.

    The only complaint I have for the entire evening is when we arrived at 715 right on time for our reservations, and had to wait an additional 32 minutes to be seated, if you can fix that problem, you have made yourself 2 life long guests in your establishment.

    It was good for what it is. Chicago prices for decent food. You pay mostly for the experience of the cooks to not mess up your steak for the most part. I can get prime grade beef from my local market, and it is a lot cheaper than the steaks are here. I can cook them just the same, so I you are really paying the wages of the people cooking your food, not for fantastic food.

    Decided to try this place out. Checked on the website and noted that the dress code was dressy, so my party did so accordingly. To my surprise, the restaurant apparently does not enforce this as several patrons were in shorts, t shirt, jeans and gym shoes. To say the least, I was a little disappointed. Also noticed several waitresses with extremely short skirts, so much so that a few of them had to cover themselves while bending over. Off their pre-fix menu, had the cheesesteak eggroll, shrimp and lobster bisque (phenomenal) and the 8oz Filet Mignon. Our waiter had dropped off a wine menu to choose a glass to have with the meal, and I was ready, but he never came back around to take my order, so had to settle with water for my Filet.

    The service was slow and the food was OK. I ordered a rib eye, and was anticipating that it would be a better tasting steak then what I have received at less expensive restaurants. Not only was it not as tasty, it was thin and under flavored. At these prices, I expect a great meal and great service -- unfortunately your restaurant did not deliver.

    ... or insufficiently wealthy, because we were a little disappointed at what we got for our money this past Sunday. The place hasn't changed, and it wasn't too busy or noisy, and our server was just fine (didn't call us "guys" or sing Happy Birthday when she brought our dessert with a candle in it for me)... But the wine we got for $70 -- the most affordable bottle I could find of what should have been acceptable cabernet -- was drinkable and not much more. And the "specials?" $42 for half a small lobster and an incredibly small filet. (Everything else a la carte.) Granted, it was all cooked correctly, so no complaint there. I suppose I would only have been satisfied if I'd spent $60 on the best steak. I'm thinking they could do better.

    Seems like no matter how often we go to Sullivan's it's Always Excellent. We love the Mixers since we both are watching carbs. The meatloaf was like none other and the nearby table guests were wishing they had ordered the same. Our waiter provided super service always with a smile. We were not in the bar area but it sure is a popular spot. We like the dining room and this trip made the birthday lunch special.
