    OpenTable Diner Since 2008

    The food and service were outstanding. The only two detractors of this normally fine restaurant were background music loud enough to be moderately irritating. Not horrible, but loud enough to interfere with conversation and to be memorably loud. Not sure how they would handle this but you also don't expect customers wearing dirty tee shirts, jeans and ball caps at a table having dinner. There were several and it somewhat detracted from the ambiance of an otherwise high end place.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 8/1/2008
    We were expecting jazz but that is only in the bar. Much better scene if there is just 2 people. The service was a little hurried. They tried to take my salad from me 4 times. If you set your fork down, they're going to take your plate. The food was very good and very pricey. To be expected and that is okay as long as the rest of the experience is as enjoyable. Our waiter was friendly but very feisty. Some people don't mind that persona but it isn't for everyone. Some patrons are not in the mood for wise cracks during their meal. Unfortunately, I probably will not return.

    Sullivan's is a classic steak house. Dark on the interior and quiet, great for that romantic dinner. You can dress up and won't feel out of place. We had a leasurely dinner and never felt rushed or overserviced. The food was outstanding and we ate the best steaks we have had in Tucson.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2008
    Dined on 7/23/2008
    This was our first visit to Sullivan's in Tucson. My first impression was not very good. As we drove up the entire front is reserved for Valet Parking. Why do you need Valet Parking some 30 feet from the entrance? As a result I had to park in front of another business. We were seated in front of the wine cellar. The location was fine however it appears the wine cellar is a gathering hole for employees to talk in private. Overall experience was okay, nothing exceptional by anymeans.

    wait staff was a bit too busy - bustling around, hurrying a bit too much which detracted from a relaxing atmosphere. and then when we wanted to leave, our waitress had 'disappeared' according to another waiter. odd, but not a big issue.

    Our waitress almost seemed "annoyed" to be doing her job. We had to wait very long periods of time before she would check in, and again, her attitude was almost as if we were putting her out. We actually saw a similar response from another table. It was 9:00 on July 3, and it was not busy at all, so that cannot be an excuse. In any case, for a high dollar meal and experience, it proved to be very disappointing. We did not expect such poor service for the money, as well as the high class reputation that Sullivan's has.

Our server, Eric, was gracious, attentive, and treated us like royalty. My wife and I had a wonderful, romantic time and will definitely return to Sullivan's again in the very near future.

    Slow service with little care for any special needs. I had to obtain (twice) my own fork/knive because my setup wasn't correct. The initial wait for service was long. The presentation of the specials was a weak description at best. Apetizers were poorly prepared. Overall, I would say this place failed miserably to impress me. I travel around the world and visit many fine dining establishments, and this one will not be on my list any longer.

    We are a very loyal Morton's Steakhouse customers and always will be - we visit them at least once a week. Visiting Sullivan's was one of the most enjoyable dinners we have experienced. The food was excellent by far one of the the tastiest "Bone In" rib eyes I have ever ordered. The service, ambiance and the wine selection was superb - a quality wine for every-ones price range. I could myself from mentioning our satisfaction to the manager that night. We visit my wife's mother often and from now on, as we will with Sullivan's.

    We had a few problems with my wife's meal. Her baked potato was cold. Also her steak, which she ordered med-well, had a burnt taste to it. My meal was good. My only other negative is that when we said we wanted wine by the glass they didn't show us a list of wines by the glass, they simply said what do we want. It was as if they didn't have a list for this. Thanks, Steve

    Although we had a noisy booth right next to the kitchen, the staff was friendly and professional. The food was fantastic. They might want to rethink the waitress' uniforms. Many of the young women working there looked distinctly uncomfortable. Skin tight miniskirts and spiderweb fishnet stockings only work for a very small percentage of women. There was a lot of tugging going on.
