    We dine at Sullivan's a few times a year, usually for a special occasion. Each time we go, we are more happy with the service. Our reservation was for 7:30pm. We arrived early, at 7:00pm, expecting to sit at the bar and enjoy a cocktail while we wait. To our surprise, our table was already waiting for us. We were greeted quickly by our server, karly. She was great! We told her why we were there, we were celebrating our upcoming wedding that weekend. She took care of us, but did not hover. the manager came over to say hello and congratulate us. We were also congratulated by other servers throughout the evening. They went out of their way to make sure we were happy and enjoying our date. As for the food, we were not disappointed. We both ordered steak, which was cooked perfectly, the side dishes were great. As well as the chocolate dessert we had. I definitely recommend this restaurant!

    Service was great! Have been there many times over the years. However this last time my wife and I sent our steak back, as It came out rare. We orderedit medium. At that point it ruined our whole meal. Kim compted us dessert big deal, at that point. I would have paid for it myself. I was very disappointed. Wont go back for a while. I think I'll try Ruth Chris or morton's in KOP next time.

    Every other Sullivan's I have been to seems to have a "classier" atmosphere. I think the dress code needs to be bumped-up. Too nice of a place to have people with paint all over their shorts on a Saturday night. Your establishment is a "first class joint" why slop it up?

    Our first visit to Sullivans. The staff was exceedingly helpful and friendly but not overbearing. Enjoyed the food very much. Took advantage of the prixe fix menu. The only complaint - the staff was a little over zealous in recommending MORE food; they made it a little uncomfortable in saying NO to more add-ons.

    Very slow semi-attentive service asked second loaf of bread never received it. New waiter had multiple support waiters checking in on us but still waited significant time between ordering appetizers and meal also a significant time between receiving the appetizers and meal. only 4 of us and dinner service took almost two hours mostly due to waiting for food. Sullivans should restructure their appetizer menu and not have the staff tell us appetizers where big enough for two-it was insulting when the portions came out. Also the braised short rib, even though i know it could be fatty was 40 percent fat and i could only eat half of it. I was not going to send it back because it took so long to get meal in first place.

    I had reservations for 7 PM but when we arrived about 5 minutes ahead of time, we were told they were running late, and had no idea when our table would be ready. They were busy, but I thought this was odd, since even whey they're busy, they should at least be able to give a rough timeline for when a table would be available. Like I said, very unusual for Sullivan's usually extremely prompt and ready to go. We were seated at 7:23, so not a terribly long wait, but something that was unexpected from them. We ordered the specials, which were outstanding. Delicious dinner, overall.

    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.

    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.
