Diner Reviews
  • "Hot spot kind of bar with entertainment! The food and service was very good with reasonable prices."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "The atmosphere was great. The wine list exceptional. Food amazing. We hosted some key clients and would do so again."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "Read the good reviews on Open Table so my wife and I decided to try this place. We arrived early so very few dinner customers (bar was full). Nonetheless, we were walked all the way to the back of the restaurant (quite a long walk) to the table right next to the kitchen entrance door, despite there being at least 10 to 12 open tables in that section of the restaurant. Server got my soup order wrong; bread removed from the table just before delivery of the entree (I've never seen that before); and "healthy" salad was inedible. Won't visit here again."
    Dined on 7/17/2014
  • "Food was wonderful and service was great. We will go back and definitely on the favorite list now. Relieved to find an exceptional steakhouse in downtown Seattle!"
    Dined on 7/14/2014
  • "Sullivan's presents itself in the image of a great, old school steakhouse, reimagined with modern ingredients, prepration, and style. My wife and I had a really exceptional meal here on a Sunday night (Half off on wine on Sundays! Imagine a $100 bottle of wine for $50!). My steak was an excellent cut, perfectly done, my wife's salmon the same. It's a bit pricy, but you understand why when the food is served. It's well worth it."
    Dined on 7/13/2014
  • "We have been to Sullivan's several times, normally prior to a musical at the 5th Avenue Theater. Prices are a little high so we usually order from the 3 course fixed price ($39) menu. There are a limited number of entrees, a small filet, salmon and another sliced steak if I remember correctly. The starters are very good and a fairly large portion size. Salads are good. What really sets Sullivan's apart is the service, both in the restaurant and later, if you give them your contact information. We normally get a card in the mail good for a free desert once or twice a year. We also received a hand written thank you note from our server today, four days after our visit."

  • "Wait staff was great. Food good but extremely expensive."
    Dined on 7/9/2014
  • "The place seemed popular by the locals, and I can see why. The food was great, the style was throwback (new stuff, not throwback as in 50 year old furniture), and our waitress, Mary, made us feel very welcome and was great. Good place. If there was a Sullivan's where we live, we would go back."

  • "Will definitely return again ! Loved the house drink the knockout. We had a party of six and we all loved our meals ranging from filets to salmon to fries ! Our teens loved the menu and we all loved the service."
    Dined on 7/2/2014
  • "I was pleasantly surprised by our visit as I always think of Sullivan's being more of a chain. The three of us ordered different salads and all were delicious. I particularly enjoyed the kale salad with salmon. It was really flavorful and filling. I'll definitely be going back and ordering that!"

  • "Expected something more upscale based on Open Table reviews. Service was great! Food was good value for money. Live music was disappointing."
    Dined on 6/21/2014
  • "We've been to Sullivan's many times and it's one of our favorites. They send us a card for our anniversary and birthdays and give us a free dessert. We reserved a table on our anniversary and they made it very special. Everyone was wonderful and wished us a happy anniversary. They took our picture and all signed the framed picture wishing us a happy anniversary. The Manager stops by and visits every time we've been in. She is very pleasant. It was such a wonderful time we recommended our kids to go the following weekend for their anniversary and they had a wonderful time as well. Thanks for the wonderful food and great service."

  • "Very nice atmosphere, beautiful and tasty food, great staff. Everything was presented beautifully, but staff could have paid us a little more attention."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We had great service this evening; however missed the valet parking. Did not realize it is not provided on Sundays. I think it should have been offered on a special day such as Father's Day. I had the prime rib special which was excellent and a very nice size!! My wife had the halibut special that evening and it was also excellent. I would recommend this restaurant to anyone."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Another great dinner. I had the lobster trio, good portions and cooked perfectly. My wife had the halibut and she said it was as good as it gets. Even though we think of this as a steak place their fish and seafood is almost always spectacular. The have a great bar and Brandy is a great bartender who really pays attention to her customers. All of the wait staff, management and hostesses have great personalities and make this a fun place to eat in addition to great food. Stephanie in particular was very interesting and knowledgeable about the whole sports theme. A great evening before the play."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "Don't usually patronize national chains for up-scale dining experiences, my experience is that the locals do it better (Daniels, El Gaucho, the Met). I was surprised that at every step of the way Sullivans performed at a high level (and at a cheaper price). Professional service that was knowledgeable, quick and friendly. Prime rib was the best I've had in a while. Only off note was the over-oily shaved brussel sprouts. Half off wines over $75 on Sunday nights, with a good selection of wines to choose from makes if a great place to end a busy weekend with a treat. Plus they know how to make a Manhattan. Pleasantly surprised!"
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "I ordered a Filet Mignon and it was cooked perfectly. Very flavorful and delicious. Broiled Salmon wasn't bad either, but their steak is definitely the way to go."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Great food, great service. We were celebrating my husbands birthday and they sent us home with a very nice picture of the two of us. Very nice touch!"
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "My party of 4 made reservations for a 6:15 pm dinner, contemplating an 8:00 pm curtain at the nearby 5th Avenue Theatre. Our salads were all fresh and crisp. I had a bleu cheese wedge salad that was delicious. Our main courses consisted of bone-in ribeyes, halibut on a bed of salad and sea bass. Side dishes were Brussels sprouts and garlic mashed potatoes. In addition to my delicious medium rare steak, I sampled a bite of the sea bass, and it was spectacular. The food preparation was outstanding, and all delivered to our table together, and hot. Because we were a little pressed for time and very full, we opted for coffee and tea instead of a dessert. Next time, I will order a smaller steak, and be sure to sample a dessert!"

  • "Our server was personable, informative and our steaks were delicious! I look forward to returning."
    Dined on 6/12/2014
  • "i've eaten out a lot, but this was an experience i've never had, nor care to have again. i asked for my steak without any sauce. when it was put down it looked very moist, as if a sauce on top. i asked the waitress to please just verify with the kitchen that there was no sauce. instead, she took a cloth napkin she was holding (and i don't know where that was before this) and patted my steak with it to show me no sauce--but the napkin was wet when she was done so not sure what she was trying to prove. that's got to be against some public health law!"
    Dined on 6/10/2014
  • "Traffic screwed us with a bridge closure and a 1.5 hour delay crossing I-90 from the Eastside... so we were very late for our reservation. I actually called and cancelled so we wouldn't hold up a table. Since we were running behind we decided to just sit in the bar and have an appetizer before heading to our next reservation for a show. We sat down and told the bartender we didn't have much time to eat. He suggested things that would be fast and we both ordered steak slices with mashed potatoes. It made the perfect quick meal, and very tasty. Wish we had a Sullivan's on the East-Side."
    Dined on 6/7/2014
  • " We wanted a place to have a nice meal before going to a production at the Paramount. Despite one member of our party arriving 45 minutes late, the waitress delivered our meals in a timely fashion and we made it to the play in time. Kudos to her for that! My sea bass was done to perfection and the kale salad was excellent. My husband's broiled salmon very tasty as was the Casear Salad and the spicy calamari that came with his meal. The other two meals, both steaks from the Prix Fix menu were perfectly cooked, even if consumed in haste. We requested a quiet table so we could hold a conversation and, despite the fact that the restaurant was very busy, we were easily able to hear one another. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 6/4/2014
  • "WE had a slight communication glitch regarding parking, (valet parking not avail Mon and Tues) but found a public garage nearby. With our request we were seated a a quiet area. Service was spectacular with water and drink order within seconds of arrival at our table. A warm loaf of bread and a perfect martini took away the residual stress from traffic and parking. We used the Prie Fixe menu which gave good value for a three course meal. The appetizers were delicious, salads generous and fresh, and the steaks perfect to order. The house merlot was premium! We declined dessert due to a show engagement following. Our waiter asked about a performance as we sat down and fit our service within our time schedule. We will definitely return."
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "Food was well prepared and presented, but some members of our party felt the prices were a little steep for what was received."

  • "Sullivan's Steakhouse replace a restaurant that we had been to on several occasion. This was our first time at Sullivan's and enjoyed it! Service and food were very good. Our service was very good. Servers were attentive and aware of our time frame for the show at the Paramount. I had the filet and lobster and both were cook to perfection. I also had the side of asparagus and a chopped salad. My partner had the crab cake. The crab was excellent. We split the calamari as an appetizer. We used the valet parking and it was helpful since we had been advised by the Paramount to arrive early due to all the construction in the area. Overall it was a great "

  • "Had a special Mother's Day brunch. Usual tempting surprises on menu. Shrimp-lobster bisque was fantastic, and key lime pie was the best we ever tasted!"
    Dined on 5/11/2014
  • "Between the three of us we had the steak and the sea bass. All of it tender, juicy, and tasty. The baked potato and the Brussels sprouts were plenty to share. The made to order martini was perfect, and the Knockout really was just that, a vacation in a glass. Service was friendly, prompt, and unobtrusive. We found street parking half a block away. Can't wait to go there again!"

  • "The appetizer our wItress strongly recommended, steak egg rolls, were terrible. The calamari and kale salad were pretty good. The scallops were okay but the rice they were on was stone cold. In a word the food was unremarkable. The service was pleasant, though her guidance was way off. Definitely would not go there again."
    Dined on 4/30/2014
  • "We had reservations for 7:15 and arrived just before. We had to wait 30 minutes to be seated. Very upsetting for a birthday celebration. Service was slow however the food was good. Our waiter did all he could but it was busy and with several 7 to 10 seatings. Our two-some suffered. I expected earlier seating or at least an explanation for the long wait. When compared to other downtown steak places this was definitely 3rd tier."

  • "I celebrated my birthday here last weekend and have never received such amazing and wonderful service. Not only did they have excellent service but because it was a special occasion they went above and beyond to make our experience incredible. We received complimentary desserts as well as a wonderful picture printed out in a frame to take home! All the special extras aside, the food was the best (as always)....perfectly cooked steak, mouth watering Mac and Cheese and wonderful wine. Perhaps the best birthday dinner ever. Thank you Sullivans! "

  • "We had a 6:15 reservation, and the first thing the waitress asked us was if it was a special occasion, or if we were going to the theater. When I mentioned that we were in fact seeing an 8:00 show, they asked what time we'd like to be done (suggesting 7:30, which I said was fine). We had a delicious, well-paced dinner, and paid the check at 7:35!"

The staff was extremely friendly and accommodating, my sister had creamed spinach for ger side and it was too salty and they gladly took it back and exchanged it with a different choice..no questionsed asked. The manager said it was their first time serving Easter Brunch. Great job for a first time Justin!!!"

  • "Sullivan's is a bit pricey for an everyday lunch, but I have always had good meals, with great service. The waiter was attentive and friendly - Sullivan's usually has some kind of promotion running, as well as adding points to a loyalty card, which is nice. Their bar is lively and fun, with a good happy hour. The calamari is fantastic, order it almost every time. I had a steak salad, which was prepared to my preference. Good wine and drinks."
