    Sullivan's is a treat for us, and we are not disappointed when we eat there. My only complaint is getting no pink in my filet when I ordered it medium-well at my server's suggestion instead of medium. This happened the last time, too. I will be sure to stick with "medium" the next time.

    We had eaten at Sullivan's many years ago and was not satisfied with the steak. Can't remember the specific details however. We decided to try again and were very much pleased this time with all aspects of the service. The waitstaff was efficient. The three courses were served in quick order. The entrees arrived hot, and best of all, the food was excellent - a great improvement over our only other experience years ago. Will now strongly consider Sullivan's for special occasions.

    We dined during restaurant week. Food was very good, but in my opinion tables were toclose and it was very noisey. Not somewhere I would want to go for a romantic dinner! SEEMED RATHER EXPENSIVE.

    We've been to Sullivan's several times and knew the food would be great. We had a few disappointments with the DOD experience: the side dishes were extremely small (maybe 1/2 cup each), odd since these have a low cost to the restaurant; On the other hand, the main entre and dessert were generous. Secondly, we felt rushed: we were incomfortablr lingering our cocktails, as the waiter repeatedy asked us to order, the courses were delivered as if on an assembly line, and each course was delivered before we had finished the previous one.

    This was my first time at Sullivans and thought DDO would be a great opportunity to try the restaurant out. The food and service was very good. The entree came with horseradish mashed potatoes and sauteed squash. I love spice, but unfortunately it doesn't like me. The server was kind enough to bring me a sample of the mashed potatoes so test the spice level so she knew about my situation. Why then would she not alert me to the spice level of the squash. When I asked to swap out the mashed potatoes (which were $8.50 on the regular menu) for the au gratin potatoes ($9.50 on the regular menu) I was told it was not possible and that I would need to purchase the au gratin potatoes at full price. Not sure I would visit again based on this visit.

    Food was excellent (except for hair in calamari), but timing between courses was terrible. We are not sure if it was a server or kitchen problem. Time between finish of meal and serving of desert was completely unacceptable and coffe orders were forgotten.

    Appetizers and Soup/salad were great...my 16oz. NY steak was perfect. But my wife's fillet mignon was requested med. To med well. Instead of server or cook recommending the fillet to be butterflied for easier thorough cooking to proper temp. The steak was brought out with a charred thick leathery skin. My wife acted as though it was fine and ate only a bite... but steak is supposed to be a draw to your location and her meal was extremely dissapointing and put a damper on my mood being she would not let me send it back...so $140 later on our 5yr wedding anniversary and first trip to your establishment for great food, we were let down in the end.

    On a whim we decided to try the special four-course Patron dinner, and it was a delicious decision. I would definitely consider doing something like this again, and next time with another couple or two - it's a fun way to dine. The pork belly tacos were especially good, and the tres leches cake was sinful.

    We arrived about 15 minutes before our reservation time...checked in with the hosts and was informed that they don't seat incomplete parties and we could wait in the bar. As we headed to the bar, they told us that the other half of our reservation was already checked in and was in the bar - wrong! So we sat at the bar, got a drink each and waited for the other couple we were meeting. When they arrived, we went back to the podium and were then shown to our seating. We had requested a booth but were shown a table. Immediately, the manager or maître d' came over and asked if we had reserved a booth and apologized and seated us in a booth. The service was decent but they failed to bring back the leftovers. We've had better experiences ther

    We eat at Sullivans several times a year including any notable occasion in our lives, (anniversaries, birthdays, etc.). The food is always excellent, the service impeccable and the staff attentive without being over bearing. We will be back often. My girlfriend had the $39.00 Prix fixe menu and had the filet which was very well prepared. She did feel the potatoes had a little too much horse radish but all else was excellent. I had an eight ounce salmon steak served on a bed of rice with a blueberry sauce which added a touch of sweetness to the rice. As always a great experience.

    Sullivans is the classiest restaurant on Concord Pike. The service is indeed outstanding. Of course the male clientele will appreciate more that the servers are lovely young, personable ladies instead of the middle-aged men that older steak restaurants use. And, a manager always stops by the table to check on us. I love the bisque, and the steaks are excellent. I don't live in the area, but I try to dine there every time I come to Wilmington.

    We found the service at Sullivan's to be seriously lacking. Server knocked over my wine glass (1/4 full) and made no attempt to get me another wine. We were kept waiting before being seated even though we were there at 5 PM and the dining room was full of helpers cleaning the glasses and no customers were in the restaurant. Ordered simple thing liker a baked potato: told not ready yet after my well done steak was delivered. Would be another 10-15 minutes. Everything seemed very disjointed. Will not go back here!!!
