Sullivan's Steakhouse - Palm Desert
Moyher's DayWe had great service and some of the issues we brought to the attention of management recently were definitely improved. The only thing that did not seem right or appropriate was the fact that we brought our own wine and I have no problem with corckage fee but I was under the impression that proper etiquette dictates that if we share a taste with our serve the fee would be waved and it wasn't, the bottle of Trésor from Ferrari-Carano was well worth it!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFun BirthdayGreat atmosphere for a family birthday. Food was great, especially the desserts!5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent MealAs usual, everyone in our party enjoyed their meal and everything was cooked to perfection. Along with the main course, our appetizers were delicious and the cocktails were awesome !!!5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulously fabulous!We visit Palm Desert/Palm Springs about twice a year and we always make sure we dine at Sullivan's on Saturday night. The food is fabulous and the service is always impeccable! The best filet mignon I've ever had...and incredible Creme Brulee! Their waitresses check on us often, water glasses constantly filled, and the manager always comes by to check on us. After 3 years, he still remembers us and even remembers where we sat the previous visit. We took our two young daughters with us this last time and the waitress was so sweet to them and the chefs were very friendly towards them when the kids wanted to watch the "flames" in the kitchen. The staff really go out of their way to make sure that we were happy and had a great meal.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMBetter than last timeThe service, attention and food was better than before.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMChef's ChoiceI am a Chef very few restaurants are serving prime meat any more although they cliam they are, but Sullivan's is and they prepare it just right with your choice of sauce.
we split a wedge salad so yummy, they did it for us and served it, then we spit a 16 oz rib eyed med rare with horseradish whip potatoe, fantastic. Sauce Bearnaise was spot on. Great wine Hess Cab. Birthday Man Was treated to his choice of any dessert and they took comp photo very nice.5/1/2013 12:00:00 AMAlmost perfectI work in F&B service mgnt, so always notice details but they are important to overall experience of diners. It was a great night overall, hostesses were very nice, waiter was nice, food was great.. The only complaint I have is it took too long to be greeted at the table (about 6 to 10min & should be within 3min after seated) and to bring water after we were greeted. One of our guest was pregnant & only wanted water, the rest of us ordered wine & water. Wine came 1st and we had to ask couple times for water & refills were slow as well, we drank spouses water at table until more came.. It wasn't busy at all and plenty of staff walking by our table who were not busy. That was only issue, after that the evening went great!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAll Good!Service and food were excellent. Had a yummy wedge, perfectly cooked filet mignon, au gratin potatoe and heavenly coconut cream pie!4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent ServiceExcellent service from Rachel in the main dinning area. Would recommend this to anyone looking for a great meal and great service.
Wes4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMThere are a plethora of steakThere are a plethora of steak houses in the Palm Desert/Palm Springs area, but Sullivan's has to be our favorite. Great food, great service, we love the feel and energy of the room. Plus, live music in the bar every night!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding!This was by far one of the better meals I have had. I went for their pre-fixed menu that had a handful options. I chose the medallions and shrimp scampi and had it prepared medium rare. It was so tender, I showed my husband that I could cut it with my fork. My husband really enjoyed his cowboy rib eye bone in cut and thought his wedge was very tasty. The wedge had a different taste that he couldn't place, but delicious nonetheless. We had reservations for 8pm and got their early because we were starving. We sat at the bar area and order two cocktails and later decided to order the blue cheese chips. It was very good. The overall experience was pretty efficient ... I'd write more but I am out of room. I think I'll Yelp it.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThe service was outstandingThe service was outstanding and the food was perfection.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMOur meal was fantastic! TheOur meal was fantastic! The service aas impeccable. Will definitely be back.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMWe wanted to treat our houseWe wanted to treat our house guests to a special dining experience, and so based on our past experience, the immediate choice was Sullivans. Again we were not disappointed. Our house guests were equally impressed with the food, and especially the service. We shall return for many years to come. Thanks to Sullivans for their consistency in exemplifying the essence of what a quality establishment should be.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very good experienceWe had a very good experience & our ribeye steaks were perfect.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMDisappointedAll 3 of us got the special containing 2 3 ounce filet and shrimp. Each one of us had one tough filet. A little disappointment from the usual experience.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceThis was a very nice restaurant with great food and service. Well located in one of the nicest areas of El Paseo. Would definitely return.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSullivan's always a sure thing!A good desert staple..great location, upscale dining and bar is fun, inside and outside seating. Prices are ok, food is pretty good, service is quite nice, valet parking, a nice venue and ambiance for couples, singles or groups of friends for "finer" dining...good menu selection. I quite like it. I always feel safe and comfortable there!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMThe restaurant has open seating,The restaurant has open seating, so it can seem fairly loud and bustling, which is not a bad thing, but not too conducive for a relaxing or romantic dinner. Entree items on the standard menu are stellar and on par with other great, high-end specialty steak houses. They also have a fixed price menu with good, but not great, entree choices as well. Generally the service at Sullivan's is excellent. Our waiter on this visit seemed a bit overwhelmed at times. The Iceberg Wedge, Chili-crusted Ribeye and Coconut Cream pie are all fantastic!4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAs always a great experience.As always a great experience. Highly recommended. One of our favorites.4/2/2013 12:00:00 AMA favorite restaurant. OnlyA favorite restaurant. Only one thing missing is drinkable water. It has a bad taste!!!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMPERFECT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!The best Steak House in the Palm Springs/Palm Desert area. Great food, friendly and efficient service, wonderful atmosphere. A perfect dining experience.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMLove Sullivans @ Palm Desert..Love Sullivans @ Palm Desert.. the food is always great. The only draw back is the noise level is at a 10 level when the restaurant is full (which is most of the time on the weekends especially).3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMEasy reservations, friendlyEasy reservations, friendly desk and service, bussing right on task... Wonderful food, too.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNothing like a good steak...The entire meal was delicious. We had a new server(Ashley) and she was delightful. We hope she stays for a long time. The restaurant was quite busy which was nice to see.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWay too noisy the night weWay too noisy the night we were there. We go to Sullivans every year when we are in Rancho Mirage, BUT this year they had a BIG super loud group of ladies who were so loud that half of the restaurant was unable to sit in. They should have to reserve their own party room!! We did that when we celebrated a birthday a few years ago. We had to move tables three times to get in an area where the 4 of us could even hear each other!! (At least the wait staff was accommodating...) It was a bit of a disappointment, though. If groups are going to be that big and that LOUD, you should require that they sit in another reserved area.
Great waitstaff!!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMVery pleasant. Good food,Very pleasant. Good food, good service, nice ambiance.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, excellentExcellent food, excellent service.

Very friendly great service!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I were delightedMy husband and I were delighted to find that not only was the atmosphere of Sullivan's Steakhouse exquisite, so was the food. This was our first time dining at this restaurant and it won't be our last. We were pleasantly greeted and seated by their hostess. The waiter was most attentive and seemed to go beyond accommodating our menu selection. Even the general manager came to our table to make sure everything was going well with our dining experience. The menu selection was varied,offering numerous dishes which will make returning enticing. The food was creative and delicious.We enjoyed dining at Sullivan's and will definitely go back.3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for dinner which isWe went for dinner which is 1st class. I could see the bar area was crowded. It appeared that they had a great happy hour.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Burger!!We had a burger and a steak salad for dinner. The food was outstanding - burger was not greasy and more flavorful than other "high end" burgers we've had in Palm Desert and the steak salad was large and very good quality meat. The service outshone the dinner. Our waitress was extremely knowledgeable and very attentive - without being overly so. This was our first trip to Sullivan's and we would go back in a heartbeat (Perhaps even upscale to their steaks that looked outstanding, by the way)3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFar better than expected forFar better than expected for a chain like place. Cant wait for a return visit!3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMTerra, our server, was wonderful.Terra, our server, was wonderful. She was cheerie and energetic. She made sure we had everything we needed. There was a problem with the "dry aged" New York strip. It was not tender or flavorful as expected. The manager, Chris, exchanged it immediately with a filet mignon. We were surprised to have had a bad steak at Sullivans. The meat is usually very good there.3/10/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had great steaks and theWe had great steaks and the wedge salad was awesome. Great side order of cheddar potatoes. The waitress was very pleasant and efficient. Great experience overall. Will definitely return.2/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfect Anniversary Evening!We were from out of town, and I booked Sullivan's because it was our first anniversary, and I wanted a steakhouse whose ambiance would be romantic, and dressy attire would be appropriate. The food was excellent, as was the service and the ambiance. We were both very glad we chose Sullivan's.
One of the reasons that I chose Sullivan's was because they had live music in the bar. Being a singer, I wanted an opportunity to sing a song for my husband for our anniversary. When I contacted the manager, she was very agreeable to that, and I was able to surprise him with it.
The whole evening was a wonderful memory for us. Thank you, Sullivan's!2/24/2013 12:00:00 AMReally pricey, but as longReally pricey, but as long as you know that going in... Food and service are outstanding!2/23/2013 12:00:00 AMOver priced for the qualityOver priced for the quality of food I received. The salad was wilted. The cedar plank salmon did not have the cedar smoke flavour .
