    The service good food a little to salty General manager made rounds on guest that had dinner never came around again to ask when others got food. Incocsistancy to all guest . We knowtist this and think is was a great thing for GM to do table checks but needs to consistent . To many tables for server to give above average service . He was a good server but didn't give above average table service because he had to many tables. Thing like proper table bussing thru out meal .inconsistant garnish for drinks first beer with lemon garnish second none .Really to salty for price steak was tough but cooked great . if the general manager made rounds to new guest she I would have told her myself .

    Got the three course "sure thing" selection. I've been to fancy establishments where you have to order a bunch of sides to make your meal filling. Between the bread and the "sure thing" I couldn't finish my steak. My wife had the sure thing as well and I found her filet minion was better than the strip (shocking). Good selection of local spirits including a gin from Everett that was great. Their signature drink was excellent as well. I drank to many and can't remember what it was called. The bourbon steak sauce was delicious.

    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.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2007VIP
    Dined on 7/13/2014
    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.

    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.

    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.

I particularly enjoyed the kale salad with salmon. It was really flavorful and filling. I'll definitely be going back and ordering that!

    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.

    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.

    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.

    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!

    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!

    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!

    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.

    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.

    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.

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.
