Diner Reviews
  • "I read many reviews and at Mastro's, Morton's, and Morgan's. Ate last week at Mastro's Newport Beach and loved it. Dined at many high end restaurants. I expected this place, at a minimum to serve great food especially at their prices. We were very disappointed in the quality of the food. Side dishes; large jumbo shrimp was not fresh and seemed like it was very old then microwaved and tough. Mushrooms - greasy and tasted awful. Entrees; Rack of lamb was very greasy, not tender nor flavorable. Lobster not fresh and did not even resemble the normal looking species. The small filet mignon that came with the lobster was good. Despite all of this, we made do and enjoyed our own company and the server was nice."

  • "Went here for a celebration with friends. Some of the food was good, but two of my guests had to send their steaks back. One was overcooked and the other was raw. Our waitress was really nice and on the ball. If it wasn't for her, there might be 1 less star in this this review. Our waitress got the second round of steaks out really quickly and they were perfect the second time around. I went here because it's a little more reasonable than Mastro's. I think i'll probably bite the bullet and do Mastro's next time."

Just great experience all the way around, highly recommend!! My wife is still raving about the Banana bread pudding and my daughter went crazy for the blond brownie. Must try!"

  • "Sullivan's is not only an intimate dining experience with excellent food, but the wait staff is second to none. The attention diners receive makes for a special evening without being overwhelming. If you're looking for a quiet place for a romantic dinner, consider Sullivan's. The food is brought out fresh and hot, but not before you're finished with the previous course. And in between courses, the staff always make sure you have everything you need (bread, drink, etc.). Every time I've dined at Sullivan's, I've always been pleased and never disappointed."

We only went because our neighbor in Livermore CA was on a golf trip here and asked if we would recommend Sullivan's.....told him we'd never been....he tried you and said "best bone-in rib ever".....so we made a reservation.....glad we did....we go often to Morton's and Mastros while in the desert and now....they become 2 and 3 on our list....so happy with our dining experience!"

  • "After enjoying a few drinks in their bar during happy hour, we were led to a fabulous booth where we could take in the whole scene. We both ordered from the Prix Fixe menu, filet and salmon which were both perfectly cooked as we requested. Enjoyed the huge shrimp cocktails and waiter even brought extra blue cheese and bacon for my wedge salad. We had an extra loaf of bread but should have save room for dessert as Key Lime pie looked amazing. Best news was that the manager let me use a coupon for $20 off, for taking a survey last year. Also, no charge to join their rewards club to save $25 next time."

  • "My husband and I went for Palm Springs restaurant week it was absolutely amazing. My husband had the stuffed sole topped with burre blanc it was delicious it was moist not over cooked at all. I had a rib eye steak and it was cooked to perfection. Our server was very nice I don't know her name because she wasn't around that often. The only bad thing was I seen the Manger stop at every table at one time or another and she never stopped at ours I thought that was rude."
    Dined on 6/8/2014
  • "I was extremely flattered that the assistant manager took the time to chat with my guest and I. It had been a while since my last visit but I remember that food to just as excellent as the other evening. Thank you Don"

  • "Sullivan's was our favorite of the several places we visited during Restaurant Week. My dining companion and I both loved the 8-oz filet, perfectly grilled to medium rare. The wedge salad was crisp and fresh, with just the right amount of blue cheese and dressing on the side. The key lime pie was yummy. Wine prices were reasonable. The manager visited our table to say "hello" and gave us a $20 coupon for a future visit -- a nice touch. The adjacent bar is very energetic, especially on Thursday and Sunday evenings when there is live music. Our request to be reseated further from the action was happily accommodated."

  • "We have been coming to Sullivans for many years to enjoy the bar scene on Thursdays and Sundays. The martinis and bar food have always been a favorite for us and for our guests. We had eaten in the dining room many years ago and decided to take our guests for Restaurant week. The experience was as this review is titled, Wonderful As Usual."

The food was so good my wife has never liked beef said she could become a steak lover after tasting theirs. The service was outstanding. The whole staff there was a part of our anniversary. We loved it and we will go back and will tell every one to try it. LOVE, LOVE LOVE THESE PEOPLE. Thank you for the experience. Mike and Paula "

The Filter Mignon was cooked to order, the Wedge salad was the best we have had in the Desert, and the service was very attentive. The ambience was lovely. The Manager stopped by our table and gave us coupons for our next visit. We will be back."

  • "The Coachella Valley has no shortage of steakhouses, and we were very glad that we chose Sullivan's. The ribeyes we ordered were cooked perfectly and were we'll trimmed with no fat at all to be discarded. The sides and appetizers were also done exceedingly well. Our server Martin was a very attentive young man who took excellent care of us. I highly recommend Sullivan's Steakhouse!"

  • "Have been going to this place for years. Always pleased with service, food and ambiance. It is probably my favorite steak house althought other menu items are great too. It is hard to believe it is part of a chain. it is just downright consistently good and staff make you feel at home and happy to be there. They know how to treat their customers."

  • "We always enjoy Sullivan's and come quite often when we are in the desert. Wonderful service, food and ambiance. Love the specials too. Had the "Summer Fling" and it was as good as expected. "

  • "In a market that is glutted with the likes of Ruth's Chris and Mortons, LG's and the Chop House, this steakhouse does not stand out. No bacon on the wedge salad? Is this a new trend? Not the first time we've encountered it, but certainly not traditional. The steaks were perfectly good and the room is much more casual than others although the prices are right up there. Staff was almost over-attentive. For a special occasion, we'd prefer one of the others but if you want to pay as much but dress down...Sullivan's might be just the spot."
    Dined on 6/1/2014
  • "The food was ok. The steak was flavored nicely but was a bit dry. Order it cooked one less than your norm. My medium was closer to medium well. If you are in Palm Desert there are a number of other steak houses priced about the same but with better cooked, more tender steak. If you want a busy bar scene this is apparently the place as it was filled on a Sunday night and very noisy."

  • "Everyone greeted us when we walked in. The servers all looked happy to be there and to serve us. Even though the restaurant got full towards the end of the meal, we were not rushed to leave. The food was exceptional. The filet was tender and the smores dessert was really unique and wonderful. Nothing but smiles on the servers when we arrived and we left smiling!"
