    We ate on the patio. The ambiance was great- there was a combo on Saturday night. The service was very good. The food was only mediocre. We each had a small filet and a baked potato. Other steak houses we have eaten at have been much better. I can even do better at home. The meat was over seasoned and dry, and theotato was over cooked and dry. You prices are near other steak houses in town, but your food was not.

    Excellent Service and Food. It was my wife birthday and at one time or another various members of the wait staff came by and wished her happy birthday. They were cordial and fun. Despite our waiter being relatively green in the business his enthusiasm and willingness to please overcame his lack of experience. We enjoyed conversing with him. The Steaks were incredible as were the salad and soups. My wife's mac & cheese side was everything she wanted. The wine was a top notch Pinot Noir from Calera at a very reasonable price. We had told them coming in that we wanted to proceed at a leisurely pass and they accommodated well to that request. Don't miss the Shrimp/Lobster Bisque. Have and will return again.

    I found Sullivan's to be an ideal place for dining. The food is great as is glreat and the ambiance is fabulous! My only complaint is the valet parking! All the front spaces are reserved for valet and those of us who are disabled and who do not want valet, have to park on the side. It makes more sense to have the valet park on the side or back because the valet is not disabled.

    I took my boyfriend here for his birthday. I had made a request when making the reservation which the staff was quick on following through with. I don't remember our waiter's name, but he was very friendly and made the experience a happier one. We had gone early on a Wednesday evening so there was not customers. It was quiet and the setting was perfect. He had ordered the ribeye which was quite large, and I the 1lb lobster along with Cheesy mac on the side for us to share. There was nothing really to complain about for the food as everything was prepared just right, though it did not WOW me as much as I thought it would. Overall, I did enjoy Sullivan's Steakhouse in Tucson and would recommend it to others as for more special occasions.

    As a golf/resort/vacation town, Tucson has more steak houses--both local and chain--than most cities this size. Carving out an identity must be hard for these folks and finding a unique niche doubly so. Sullivan's--now an affiliate of the Del Frisco chain--holds its own in this category. Their beef is certainly high quality if the steak salad is representative. It's an excellent lighter dining choice that still takes advantage of the focus of the menu. Similarly, the seared Ahi plate with a tangy mustard sauce was equally outstanding. The appetizer category was a little less satisfying. Nothing wrong with the calamari at all, just not exceptional. The shell fish appetizer platter is quite labor intensive (cracking shells) and pricy at that.

    We love going to Sullivan's because the food is always prepared to perfection, the ambiance is romantic and private, yet, for a group meal with business associates, it is very highbrow and the service is seamless. I can safely say this the best steak and seafood restaurant in Tucson - having lived in Tucson for >25 years.

    We were seated at a table that was private and quiet as requested. The steak was delicious according to my son and husband. I had the sea bass which was perfectly prepared and very tasty. Very nice selection of wines both by the glass and bottle. Our waiter Michael was most attentive and efficient. Overall we enjoyed our dining experience.

    My wife and I celebrated our 39th wedding anniversary at Sullivan's, and had a great experience. Dinner was excellent, and at least a half dozen staff members came by to congratulate us, including the manager. They also comped two glasses of champagne and our dessert. Really fine service and fine dining. Perhaps a bit pricey for an ordinary night out, but great for a special occasion. Highly recommended!

    We enjoyed our dinner and took advantage of Arizonans restaurant week. Enjoyed Sea Bass special. Our waiter Brandon was great and attentive. He also brought us a delicious banana bread pudding on the house to celebrate our anniversary. Prices a little too high since it's not Las Vegas or New York, but still good food

    My wife and I were celebrating her birthday so thought it would be a real treat to go to Sullivan's. Were surprised to find the hostess wearing a U of A jersey, short skirt and fishnet hose. Her dress didn't seem to fit the ambiance of the restaurant (better fit for a campus bar). We ordered appetizers, salads, and pricey entrees. Quality of the food was good UNTIL we got our entrees. They were both EXTREMELY salty. We talked to our waiter and he apologized and said we might want to order "lightly seasoned" next time. Management came around and said they would take $25 off our bill. This was nice, but we would have rather had a good meal as our total bill was still over $150. Perhaps the chef should just hold the salt next time!

    There were at least 3 parties happening at the same time in the dining room which created a nosier atmosphere. Maybe the number of parties should be limited and only allowed to happen in the upper level dining area. I was VERY impressed by the server but the noise was too much to have going on for our occasion. The food didn't "WOW" me like I thought it would. I had the lamb chops. They were good but not great. Not to sound like I'm had to please but for the pricing I expected more.

    Sullivan's reputation for fine dining comes certain expectations...for item price, I expected an excellent cut of meat, it was. I also expected excellent preparation, it was not. The filets were ordered medium rare. They were received med rare but over cooked on the outside to the point were they were dry. A disappointment.

    We've dined at several Del Frisco locations and this Sullivan's is on par with the others. Service was outstanding! The "Prix Fixe" menu appears as a bargain and we both chose (although we chose different versions) this option. The options were well thought out but the filet mignon and the sliced New York strip were not as tasty as those choices on the main menu. This was my wife's 74th birthday and the restaurant offered a very generous free desert. She chose the Key Lime Pie and it was terrific. Thanks to the restaurant for making this a memorable occasion.

    My wife and I first visited Sullivan's for our 5th Anniversary recently. We were more than impressed. The atmosphere was nice and quiet where we were sitting. The dress code ranged from people wearing casual all the way up to formal dress. Our wait staff was not only attentive but was pleasant and willing to give recommendations on pairing of wine with the dinners. I can't say enough good things about the food. From appetizers to dessert it was all amazing. The steaks were cooked to perfection, and after our first bite we just sat quietly and enjoyed the experience for a few moments. Sullivan's became our "go to" for special occasions on our first visit and we are already looking forward to going back again in the near future.
