Diner Reviews
  • "Entire staff was very attentive. Best customer service I've experienced in months."
    Dined on 7/10/2014
  • "We are fuddy-duddy- kids and sleep by 9:30. Had a great meal, treated fondly for our 25 year anniversary, ate great and went to bed on time. Sullivan's: high class and good for our rare occasions. So good to hear my wife enjoying it again this morning."
    Dined on 7/11/2014
  • "We had dinner here for the first time. While it was a little pricey, the portions were a good size and prefectly cooked. The only thing lacking was the bread, which had no taste. Otherwise, it was perfect!"

  • "Old time, classic steak house. The steaks were amazing. We've eaten at the other big name steak houses in the area, and this one was definitely our favorite."

  • "When a birthday, anniversary or other special occasion is on the horizon we always choose Sullivan's to celebrate. We feel it is head and shoulders above Ruth's Chris or Flemings. The service and meals are consistently excellent. We enjoy the ambience of the dining room and have always been lucky to get a booth which gives us a sense of privacy we enjoy. This evening we had salmon and strip steak with starters of lobster and shrimp bisque and a wedge salad. Our sides were au gratin potatoes and asparagus. The meals were cooked perfectly. Melissa, our server, was attentive and always there when we needed her. She sent us a note thanking us for dining at Sullivan's which has never happened to us before."

  • "Having been to Sullivan's several times before, we were always very satisfied with it. This time however, Sullivan's exceeded all expectations. From the wait staff, to the food, to the service, to the ambience it was all outstanding. The wait staff was knowledgeable, professional and unobtrusive but always there when you needed them. As for the food, from appetizers [calamarie and cheesesteak egg rolls], main course [steaks and tuna], sides dishes [mac & cheese, spinach] and dessert [creme brulee and cheesecake], the five of us couldn't have been more satisfied. More to the point, it was Saturday night and the place was full but the staff and the kitchen made us feel as the 5 of us were the only ones there."

  • "I had a high expectation going to dinner at sullys. It did not disappoint. But it didnt overwhelm me either. Lot of spice on the meat. Possibly too much. But overall very good."

  • "This was excellent experience at Sullivan's. Wait staff was very attentive and thoughtful. Food was very very good. Wine list is very extensive. This was an anniversary dinner and the staff was very very attuned to our requests and handled it with charm"

  • "We love Sullivan's...Its an Anniversary Tradition. We go every year. Best steak and mashed potatoes you'll ever have."
    Dined on 6/24/2014
  • "Mostly what I expect - good food, good atmosphere. But a server (not our waitress) tried to take our salads before we were done because our entrees were coming soon. When the entrees arrived we didn't realized at first that it wasn't our order. Our waitress returned and recognized the mistake and apologized. We got to take home these steaks because they couldn't use them anymore. General manager came over later to apologize again and make sure we were ok and didn't need anything. They handled the situation fine so we were satisfied. We're not the type to milk the situation for more freebies anyway."

  • "The food was good, but not as good as I was expecting (especially for the price)."

  • "Loved the service and how important you make your customers feel."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The food was on par with level of establishment however the services was a total miss. Presentation and plating complemented all courses. Service was lacking, unable to fulfill request after multiple request for something as simple as a beer with dinner. Manager greeted us at table to begin the night but was not where to be found as service dropped off. If you manage the expectation of low service the food makes up for lacking."

  • "We had a good time celebrating Father's Day. My parent's hadn't visited and they enjoyed the Price Fixe menu - great way to try a variety. Loved the attention of waiter, server assistants, and managers! The food was exceptional and fresh. I also like the sommelier knowledge (our cork was made in NC!)"

  • "My wife and I were in town for the weekend and it happened to be our wedding anniversary. We looked for a good steak/seafood restaurant and the highest-rated on google in Raleigh was Sullivan's. We made our reservation and were not disappointed. Attentive, friendly staff, terrific atmosphere, timely service, and a fantastic meal. Would highly recommend Sullivan's and will definitely visit again if we're in Raleigh."

  • "My husband and I celebrated our 18th wedding anniversary here and we were not disappointed. The staff knew of our celebration and were attentive to the special occasion. The food matched the great service. The waiter was very knowledgeable about the menu and made great suggestions. I think we will make this our annual celebration spot."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "The service was spotty- our server was nice but was gone for long periods and was not good on filling drinks. We sat with empty glasses more than once. We got the summer specials with the lobster & filet. We all agreed that the lobster was tough but the filet was good. The meal was ok but not worth the price."
    Dined on 6/20/2014
  • "We had a lovely experience. We always dine here on our anniversary and it is worth every penny! The pineapple knockout is to die for! The Special prime rib was delicious and you can't leave the building without trying the banana foster bread pudding."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Took my lady friend for her 50th birthday and everyone was nice to her.THE food was great but the service was a little slow. Our reservations were at 7pm and didn't get served until 8pm. I guess it didn't help any due to Father's Day but overall it was a good evening."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I had scallops wrapped in bacon which was doused in what tasted like a bottled barbecue sauce. Other members of my party had a bit better experience, but in general we felt we could have gotten a better meal for less money elsewhere in Raleigh."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I came across Sullivan's on Opentable. After reading the reviews I decided to go for my birthday. The food was excellent and the service was even better. Though the food is quite pricey it is well worth every penny. I dined during the early hours and the restaurant was almost empty so a part of me thought that maybe the food and service was so great because no one else was there. However, I just went for the second time during their prime hours. The place was packed with a very lively crowd, but the food and service were as great as the first time. Even though Sullivan's played to a full house the service never went lacking. I would recommend this restaurant to any foodie that is looking for a top notch meal. It's the Best in Town!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "All of our meal was amazing. The steaks were perfect, Mac & cheese was some of the best I've ever had, and the brussel sprouts are a must! The wine was fantastic & dessert was the perfect ending. The only complaint that I have is that it was terribly loud, bright, and cramped. If we go back I will request a booth for sure. I think it would've made a huge difference in our expierence. Overall a great dinner!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "Great time celebrating a birthdau! My steak was well done I ordered medium but still good and I did not want to b the only one in our party of 6 to complain!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "This was my first time dining at Sullivan's steakhouse, and it was MARVELOUS! It was very elegant and conservative; not too extravagant. The best part of my dining was the actual service and meals. Everything was excellent! If you are looking for a quiet dinner with family or for a date, this is the place to go!"
    Dined on 6/13/2014
  • "We enjoy eating and drinking at the bar but they always seem to have live music which isn't a positive. The bar area isn't set up for a music venue. Not sure why they don't "get it" when all the tables are generally empty around the band. And if you are able to escape into the dining room avoiding the loud bar band, you're greeted with background music from a college student's playlist. Not exactly what you would expect for a sophisticated upper scale steak Resturant."

  • "Love this Place!!!! I have told so many friends and family about Sullivans. I will always go there for special occasions."

  • "We had a great graduation celebration at Sullivan's, it was busy with a lot of other graduates, but service was still very good and the food was top-notch. The fixed price menu was a great deal too."
    Dined on 6/6/2014
  • "Ate at Sullivans due to Raleigh restaurant Week. The specials were numerous and inviting. Both had the salad, filet and dessert. The iceberg wedge was generous with lots of blue cheese! Both filets were cooked appropriate and a good portion at 6 oz."

  • "Seated an hour early! Wonderful service and warm dining ambiance made occasion very nice. Food choices were sufficient to satisfy all in our diverse palette diners. Wait staff did a very fine job inspite of the busy "graduation and Triangle restaurant Week" crowd. Our food was superb, with no complaints or items returned to the kitchen for any issue. All in all this first-time visit to Sullivan's turned out to be a great choice and made me a much relieved father of the graduate and son of the "birthday girl". I came away looking like a savvy guy. Thanks Sullivan's!"

  • "Don't try and carry on a conversation here. Too loud. Slow service. Plan on being ignored if u don't order drinks."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "The only very small complaint I have about my visit to Sullivan's Steakhouse is that my amazingly delicious Filot arrived without a steak knife. I saw employees deliver steak knives to other tables before their food arrived but somehow I got overlooked. Very tiny thing to complain about but for the amount of money you pay I would not expect these simple mistakes to occur."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Sullivan's has always been a favorite place of mine for steak. This time certainly didn't disappoint. Everything was outstanding except for our waitress. She was forgetful and inattentive. We were not a needy group or in any rush, but found ourselves looking for her most of the night. Regardless, we will return :)"
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • "Turns out our dinner was in the midst of "restaurant week" and we were offered a price fixe dinner that was sumptuous, and very generous. Our steaks were cooked to perfection (hubby up-sized his) and served with full accompaniments. Salad crisp and not over saturated with dressing, lobster-shrimp bisque devoured. Key Lime pie just the right note. Wait staff exuberant, and paid attention to our desire not to rush. All around a delightful turn. "

  • "This was our first time to the restaurant. The food was great. My husband and 2 others ordered the dry aged strip. It was delicious but honestly I have to say that when the 3 strips were brought to the table it looks like we ordered 2 different steaks. The other steaks were large, meaty, and my husbands was about 3 -4 ounces less than the other 2. He did not say anything. Also, I ordered a wine spritzer -- $9 Really ! That is what you pay for a glass of wine. I was disappointed bout the price. The food was very good but thought these 2 items as well as the girls wearing the very very short skirts and fish hose made me feel like I was not in a classy restaurant as we have been told."
