    we were having dinner, almost last minute, with old friends and couldn't find a time and place that everyone was happy with until i remembered sullivan's. everybody was thrilled. when we didn't love the table location we were first seated at we only had to wait a bit more and were seated where everyone was happy, again. loved the price fix menu: steak was perfection, sides delicious and our server is now our new best friend.

    If you want delicious food with great service, this is the place to go. Each time I go I know I'm going to be pleased when I leave. One thing to note, the boy who placed the bread on our table, well, he was clearly not thrilled to give us the bread and the butter was kind of a toss onto the table as he rushed by. I know being the bread boy is not the best job in the world, but we all have to start somewhere. The remainder of the staff, of course, were very accommodating.

    I always enjoy coming to Sullivan's. Their Knockout Martini is a must. Its pineapple flavor with a hint of orange is so delicious. My husband loves their wine list and the spicy calamari. I chose filet mignon which is a classic and always cooked to perfection. My husband enjoys fish, so we both have options. It a good thing I don't live closer, because I would not be able to stay away from their great happy hour.

    The food and service at Sullivan's is excellent. The noise level in main dining room was a bit much. However if you can get a table in the back in is a lot more quiet.

    Food was on point as usual, as well as the atmosphere, but the service needs a lot of work. I'm usually not this picky about service, but when you are spending almost $100 a person when all is said and done, I shouldn't have to ask to see the wine list, I shouldn't have to ask for bread plates, and the waiter should never reach across me to set down silverware or clear plates.

    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.

    For me, getting out of the house was long overdue. We were planning to go to Del Frisco's, but I wanted to stay Local. so the next Best thing to my Favorite Philadelphia Restaurant is it's Sister Restaurant. And what a Great Evening we had. It was nice to just get out of the house and have a Romantic Dinner in a tranquil environment with wonderful Service.

    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.
