Diner Reviews
  • "Had a good time. Just pricey for it being considered a dinner special. The service was great and the bar area was very inviting"
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "I ordered my filet medium and it came rare. On top of that, it was tough. Baked Potato was warm."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "Nice ambience, waitstaff was friendly and efficient. Steaks were good, cooked according to request, although my wife's NY Strip was a little tougher than expected. The only thing that disappointed was the "bacon wrapped scallops with peach glaze". I have had this dish at other resaturants and loved it, was looking forward to it here. It was absolutely dreadful. Hate to be so negative about it, but it was really quite horrible. Everything else was very, very good. Out of a party of 10, I was the only one with the scallops who was really disappointed."

  • "My wife and I come here when friends visit and for special occasions. The dining room is open, yet, intimate and seperate from the bar(which actually has its own room). The staff operates like a well oiled machine. The food is prepared just right. Plus, it's downtown so you can take a stroll afterwards."

  • "My experience wasn't necessarily bad, but for a bill of $100 at the end if the night the good and service could have been so much better. Our server was lack luster but there were a couple of others we over heard who gave. Much better explanation of the nights specials. We ordered 2 filet mignons, mine med-rare and my fiancé ordered his medium. The order came out incorrectly with mine medium and his medium rare. The highlight of the night was the birthday cheesecake they surprised us with. They didn't mention anything about our special occasion until the end of the meal. Overall, I wish we had spent his birthday at Flemmings or Ruth's Chris. Probably won't go back to Sullivan's foe dinner."

  • "As always, we had a phenomenal meal with top notch service in a great atmosphere. A wine for every palate and food combination, Sullivans does it right. The server was knowledgable and engaging without being overbearing and certainly added to the experience."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Love the food! Steaks were prepared perfectly and my wife loved the signature martini. We'll go again for sure."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "I took my husband here for our 10 year anniversary. He's wanted to go to Sullivan's for a number of years now. It's a bit out of your everyday price range so we never went. We were so happy with the entire experience. Starting from making reservations on line, where they even ask if you have any special requests, to the amazing service and the fantastic food! Perhaps we'll treat ourselves in another 10 years :)"

  • "The only thing that got on my nerves was the fact that I made a reservation and still had to wait.... but once we sat down everything went smoothly and we will have to go back and enjoy some of the other menu items... everything was great and I was overall pleased with my experience."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "We had a great time & a great meal on my fiance's birthday. The service was excellent. At first, it was a bit noisy, but there is nothing the staff could have done about this - it was busy. We had a great experience!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We went there to celebrate a two graduations with a few families. Half of the meals were great. The other half were not prepared as ordered. For example a medium rare steak was presented as medium well. One steak in particular was well over cooked twice. The management tried to fix the one meal, however it was not adequate the second time either. I have been to other Sullivan's and it has been great. For the price, the meals should be prepared well."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "My husband and I have made a tradition of visiting sullivans for his birthday. We have always been impressed by the wait staff and the food is delicious. Their Kalahari is the best we have ever had and their dry aged steak is out of this world good."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Been to Sullivan's two times and have enjoyed both visits. Great service, well done food in the traditional steak house style, a little pricey but at least they deliver. Nice 3 course option is reasonably priced. A great place to take a date or business meeting."
    Dined on 8/2/2014

  • "When I am in the mood for steak, Sullivan's is my go to place. It is hands down the best steak in the Triangle. With that said, the service was just so-so. In a restaurant at this level, I should not have to pour my own wine but that is what happened in our most recent visit. In addition, salads arrived and were eaten before the bread was delivered to our table. Our server was not attentive. I have had great service at the Raleigh Sullivan's in the past so am not sure what happened here. Maybe we had the new guy."
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "You must try the cheese steak egg rolls absolutely delicious. My husband and I have really enjoyed going here for our date nights. Will definitely recommend this place to everyone!"
    Dined on 7/27/2014
  • "As usual, Sullivan's provided a wonderful evening out. The food was delicious, service very good and ambience was very pleasant. Steaks and lettuce salad wedge were outstanding. Will definitely return and recommend to friends."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Most food was very good, but one of four had "chewy" steak. Filets were a little over seasoned. Booth was very tight for average builds. Service was slow. Noise level was loud but tolerable."

  • "great food and service and the valet parking is a great plus"

    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Since moving to Raleigh, Sullivan's has been one of our favorite places to eat. Normally the service is outstanding and the food delightful. But this time...it was a laundry list of items that fell short. Our waitress disappeared for 15 minutes at a time, and was more interested in the neighboring tables conversation. Our drinks were empty...often. We ordered mixed drinks and a couple bottles of wine. It took an hour and a half to get ANY food. We had to ask for bread (which they said they forgot). One of our 4some ordered a steak medium-well because she is pregnant...it came out medium-rare. On the second try from the kitchen...it was medium...wrong It was my wife's birthday...and they wrote "happy birthday" on the wrong dessert plate."

  • "My wife and i had what we thought was the best steaks that we had ever had before. They were very tender and cooked to perfection."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "In-laws took the kids for a week and we made sure that Sullivan's would be on the docket. I've been a few times for work, but this was the first time with my wife and it rose to the occasion. Food was fantastic, love the gorgonzola butter sauce on a filet and we both enjoyed the philly cheesesteak eggrolls - fantastic. Our serve Chad was excellent - even took a minute at the start to prove that not only did they read my request on the open table reservation about seating, I think he read it verbatim - it was pretty funny. Again, great time, excellent food - we'll be back. By far, our favorite steak house in the area...Angus Barn and RuthsChris have nothing on Sullivan's."

  • "Very good experience. One of the best wait staff people in a long time."

  • "The food was good, the place was busy and noisy though. I've been to better restaurants more reasonably priced."

  • "Sullivan's Steakhouse was perfect for a special occasion! We came with our family to celebrate our 34th wedding anniversary. The food, service & atmosphere was perfect. I did miss the chocolate soufflé, which was on their menu a few years back. We had this at another anniversary dinner."
    Dined on 7/19/2014
  • "What a wonderful dining experience. All food was excellent and so beautifully plated. The seasonal tomato salad looked like a desert! and the steak could almost be cut with a fork. Staff were knowledgeable, friendly and attentive without being obsequious."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "The food at Sullivan's is always excellent. Steaks and sea food cooked to perfection every time. This restaurant has a great vibe and the staff are wonderful. Highly recommended."

    Dined on 7/12/2014
  • "I wanted to celebrate my wonderful wife so I let her choose the place - which she chose Sullivans. We brought our 2.5 year old and 3 month old with us as well. Valet parking was cheaper than the closest parking deck, and just as convenient. The staff at Sullivans accommodated our family wonderfully and even though I could tell 2 small children weren't their normal clientele, they did everything they could to keep everyone content and comfortable. Our waiter made some very insightful suggestions and our meal was excellent. The Caesar salad was standard fare, my wife was a bit disappointed in the Brussels sprouts, but our steaks, mushrooms, and desserts more than made up for it. Pricewise it will be something only for special occasions."
