Diner Reviews
  • "On an extremely bustling Saturday evening in downtown Raleigh with so many events going on, Sullivan's NEVER disappoints! Our party of 6 had Judah, the quintessential server and Katie, the uber-complete hostess/somelier - need more be said? Having tix to the N C Symphony and knowing we had a time schedule didn't deter our most enjoyable and relaxing dining experience - perfect appetizers, salads, steaks all served in a timely fashion just as we ordered and we never felt rushed or neglected. Everything was flawless - ALMOST...our only suggestion is to put less salt on the perfect meat that is served. Those of us that are salt-sensitive had a problem with the amount on our filets. Otherwise, a perfect Sullivan's experience!"

  • "Husband stated he had the best NY strip steak ever. I found it to be bland but very tender. Very good mashed potatoes. Son ordered filet mignon med rare and it was blue rare and didn't care for sauce. Crab fries were good but very luck warm. Daughters dinner she said was perfect all around with her sirloin being the best. Myself and another guest had shrimp pasta. Luke warm with tasted like canned sauce. Both guests were disappointed. Service was great and any issues were resolved properly. For the price it did not meet standard. Luke warm food not acceptable. I would not go back. But steak lovers (2) out of 3 in family loved the steak. But it was a birthday surprise and hubby got the best tasting cheesecake we all enjoyed."

  • "We had a dinner of a shared lettuce wedge and a large KC strip with Au Gratin Potatoes. I found the round bread loaf to be very plain, not worth the calories, and the whipped butter was lacking in a buttery taste which could have helped the bread out, but did not. The manager came by the table and I expressed my disappointment with the bread. They have an outside bakery make it, so maybe they will improve it to a bread that can't be resisted."

  • "The service, food and atmosphere is always impeccable at Sullivan's. It is our favorite place of all places to dine and enjoy a special evening out. Even an ordinary night out is special at Sullivan's."

  • "I took my fiance' to Sullivan's for his 26th birthday and we had a great time. The food was fantastic, our waiter (Dave) was wonderful and my special birthday request was adhered to very nicely. We will definitely be visiting Sullivan's again for other special occasions."

  • "Had gone here for our office Christmas Party and was not impressed at all. However was going to have to endure another dinner after one of my bosses gave me a $100.00 gift card as a gift. Finally broke down and used it. The change in that restaurant within 4 months is great. The food (which by the way is the same thing I got last time) was SO good. Steak was juicy and tender, the salad was tastie to the point it took me forever to eat it because I wanted to remember every bite. The "warm chocolate cake" (I have no words). I think what made this cake better then any I have had before was the fact that they used real, honest to goodness whip cream. That was the moment where I fell in love with Sullivan's."

  • "Pseudo-regulars at Sullivan's. Wife loved the shrimp and pasta but her spinach salad seemed to be missing the egg listed on the menu as an ingredient. My wedge salad was great as was my side dish of mac and cheese, but the 12 oz sirloin was tough and overly salted, not the type of steak I've come to expect from Sullivan's. Server was nice and attentive, but not to the level of past experiences. Somehow, no wine list was offered. All the other attendants were quick to perform their tasks. Place was packed before 6 on a Saturday night. For the money spent, the food should be the star of the show. Hope this was just an aberration. Will go again. No desert this time, but they are divine. I am partial to the bread pudding."

  • "I took my eldest son to Sullivan's for the first time. He loves steak and couldn't believe how great his meal was. I'm in trouble now since I can't grill as well as the talented chef's at Sullivan's and he'll want to go back. The $39.00 meal deal was a great value. We'll be back. Great service from both our server and the entire team. Fun night."

  • "Great atmosphere and wonderful food. Sullivan's was the best restaurant experience we've had in ages. The steak cut like butter and the taste was melt in your mouth. The seafood was extremely fresh. There was not one negative throughout our dining experience."

I wish I had more room to eat, I would have ordered one of everything on the menu! If you are looking for a great steak, knowledgeable staff, and a romantic ambiance, go here! you will not be disappointed!"

  • "Wonderful dining experience with an attentive staff. Highly recommend valet parking. The food was amazing- shrimp and lobster bisque and French onion soup were the best we've ever had. The steaks were perfect, the mushrooms were awesome. My hubby says the cheesecake was excellent- very light. Ambiance was very nice; little bit louder than I prefer for this level of dining, but not out of control. Request a booth seat if you want a little privacy- they are all on the outer edge of the room."

  • "We eat 5 star 2 to 3 times a week and we would definitely come back. We're from out if town visiting Raleigh and went to many steak houses during our trip and so far this was number one. Did find out that's its part of the Delmonico family and that's probably why it was so good."

  • "We went with great expectations, but it really was a miss on several levels. This was actually the second time I have eaten at this restaurant and both times I found the place to be very loud. It is literally hard to carry on a normal volume conversation. The room is too open and not separated enough from the bar area. Additionally, I found the salmon to be of lower quality that you would expect at cheaper chain restaurants. My wife had the filet mignon and that was good."
    Dined on 2/23/2014
  • "The food was excellent, best fried calamari I have ever eaten, wedge salad was loaded with the freshest tomatoes for this time of the season I have ever gotten. We had steak and it was served hot and cooked perfectly. Service was non stop, water glass get low, it was filled by numerous servers, waitress had great suggestions, food served promptly. The wine selection was great. This was a great evening of dining. Thanks."

  • "If I owned Sullivan's I wouldn't want it broadcasted, but I don't know why you'd order anything but the Prix Fixe menu. At 40/pp you get an app, a salad, and entree. Everything is slightly scaled down, but when the 6 oz filet a la carte is 35, the prix fixe filet with the other items was plenty. I got a NY strip and it was very good, and cooked spot on. The normal valet parking was booked solid, as we ate while Glenwood South was closed down for St Patty party. I made a simple "wow you're busy, the valet was even booked", and before we left the manager came over to apologize and comped us one of our drinks. So they're certainly working hard to make it a grade A experience."

  • "Overall it was very good but one of the toughest steaks I have ever had. The long bone, dry aged ribeye dshould have be tender and tasty but was just tough. Everything else was great."

  • "Everything we tried was amazing. We ordered the cheese-steak eggrolls, braised beef ravioli, and the 8 oz filet mignon with the cabernet goat cheese as the sauce. We never waited too long to get our food and nothing ever came too early. The steak was cooked to perfection and everyone was nice and polite. I definitely recommend this for a special occasion."

  • "Fantastic steaks! The table ordered strip, bone-in ribeye and filet and each one was perfectly cooked to a juicy tender medium rare. A tasty variety of a la carte sides and great salads for appetizers to choose. The knockout cocktail lived up to the hype. Sullivan's is a great place to celebrate or relax after a long workday with a wonderful and caring staff."

  • "Went to Sullivan's with a group and was not disappointed. The décor and ambience is defined and upscale. Even though it was busy (Saturday night) our waitress was very knowledgeable with the menu and was prompt with service regarding drinks, food, etc. The highlight of the night, however, was the food. They possess dry-aged beef which was the best steak I ever had in my life. The side items were outstanding as well and the portions were large. The items on the menu are pricey for a reason and let me the first one to say that you definitely get what you pay for. Highly recommended establishment."
