I made this reservation because I like a good steak and my bank promised to give me 10% of the charge when I use my bank card. I really like the restaurant. Since the food was as expensive as the online menu indicated, we dressed accordingly. Most who were there were not dressed exceptionally well. Our reservation was for 7pm, but we offered early seating since they had few customers at 6pm when we arrived. The waitress was polite and professional and attentive to our needs and desires; service was timely and friendly. The restaurant was clean and tidy and the music and talking from the bar could not be heard into the the dining room and vice versa. For our appetizer, we had shrimp cocktail; so fresh and tasty. The cabbage dressing salad they made for the bed was really tasty. My date had salad (like field greens, tomatoes with the house dressing); the dressing was nice. I had french onion soup; very nice...lots of cheese. He had the rack of lamb with a loaded baked potato; the lamb was perfectly cooked and seasoned. I had the signature 16 oz rib-eye medium rare; it too was seasoned and cooked to perfection. I had the wild mushrooms; they were fine. I had coffee and a lemon drop martini (it was called something else); it was really good and, as i am a light weight, it sneaked up on me. My date had the long island iced tea. I will go there again in future. The menu has a lot to offer.

Appetizers ordered: tuna, it came out looking black; waiter took it back. Mgr came over and apologized and I asked him why no one caught it before bringing it out? He said it should have been caught and apologized again. Replacement was better. Also ordered seafood tower which came with 2 snow crab claws, 4 king crab knuckles, 4 shrimp and 4 oysters. The oysters were horrid, everything else was ok but will not get again. Table ordered rib eye, bone in strip, and a bone in Wagyu. Bone in strip was tough but wagyu was delicious. All in all ok. If it wasn't for the signature martini, would have rated 3 stars.

I have been to this restaurant several times but on this occasion they did not meet my expectations. I ordered the pork chop and they recommended the "lollipop" cut, which meant a very small cut of meat. The pork chop was fatty and the sauce very sweet, so I was very disappointed in my meal. In fact, next time I am in town on business I will definitely choose a different restaurant to entertain my customers.

We had a lovely first time dining experience at Sullivan's on a late Sunday evening.
The entire staff was wonderful--I called when we weren't sure of the entrance and the hostess offered to come meet us outside--so very sweet.
Rafael our waiter was delightful and very helpful with special diet needs/restrictions.
Mario the chef prepared a fabulous Ahi Tuna Steak with Wasabi sauce. Pork chops were also perfectly prepared. We shared mushrooms and mashed potatoes as sides that were quite tasty-- a good paring with the pork chop, not quite as much with the Tuna, but very enjoyable. Definitely look forward to dining at Sullivan's again when traveling to Baltimore.

The food was very good. We had no problem getting a table on a Saturday night. But my waiter, who’s name I can’t remember, left something to be desired. No small talk, I had to ask if there were any specials, and he kind of rushed our appetizer. For a semi expensive restaurant you deserve a good, personable waiter. I don’t think we even got a genuine smile from the guy after leaving a generous tip.

Here's the lowdown, the food was very good (except the asparagus -that was bland. I didn't get the sauce-my server thought it was gross so he left it off, with out asking. He did send some home with and he's right-quite unpleasant)
The atmosphere was clean, classy and well maintained.
Our drinks we're good.
Our service was-meh. Our server was engaging and had a good personality for the service industry. BUT the service was not fine dining.
I have 24 year in fine dining
My observations:
The hostess was sloppy. She was wearing black leggings and dirty flats. She had a thin gray yoga t-shirt on and a sloppy cardigan over it. No make-up. She looked like she rolled out of bed. Her hair was unkempt and sloppy. And she was no welcoming or pleasant. Maybe she was having a bad day? You still have to at least put in an effort if you plan to work in the service industry.
When I made my reservation, I specified that this was my husband's birthday and we had a sitter and would like a quiet table. She seated us in the middle of the restaurant, literally at a 4top.
Like I said, our server was a nice guy. But he's not a fine dining server. Or maybe he just needs a little tweaking. He delivered our drinks and I had to wipe the outside of my glass because someone had spilled it down the outside of the glass.
I put my dirty butter knife on my appetizer plate and he took it off and left it on the table for me to use again. Etiquette says he should remove all dirty flatware before the next course.
I ran out of water, twice.
My husband requested the course menu, he dropped it on the table instead of handing to him-my husband was taking a drink.
See above asparagus incident.
And he never offered us another drink. We decided to go somewhere else for coffee.
The steak and calamari are amazing. My chicken was awesome. But I expected more in the way of service. If you're going to spend $150+ on dinner, you should have excellent service.

Sullivan's is far too overpriced for the food. I ordered a $60 lobster tail that was said to be "cut tableside." Apparently, that phrase means violently sliced down the middle at your table. We ordered oysters as an appetizer and not only were they brine-less (no water/liquid to maintain freshness), they were also more stuck to the shell than most others I've had. The steak, key lime pie, and wine list did not disappoint. But, we were extremely pressured into giving a feedback survey as we were finishing dessert/wine and leave perfect reviews or else we should not fill it out... I told the waiter I was not going to fill it out with him over my shoulder (because I was not going to leave perfect reviews), and then he came back saying he saw the survey responses and thanked me. Made the end of the meal extremely uncomfortable.

I went there with my family for my birthday and the waiter was awful. I had to go the manager several times and nothing ever changed. This is not my 1st time there but it will definitely be my last. Prices were too high and it was not even as good as it usually is. Fogo is a much better option which is where we should have gone anyway

My wife and I had dinner at Sullivans during Baltimore Restaurant Week and we had a GREAT time. We made reservations at the last minute using Open Table and the process was easy and quick and the
meal itself, a huge value. My wife had the filet mignon and I had the NY Strip. My wife had hers Oscar
style with crab and asparagus and the Hollandaise sauce for a slight up charge. The steaks were wonderful and were accompanied by garlic potatoes and a squash and zucchini mix. Excellent!

Sullivans has two sides...the bar, which had live music and casual dining. That's where you could enjoy a more "hot spot" atmosphere. We ate in the dining room, where we enjoyed a romantic booth.
We've been to Sullivans in Balltimore a few times now -- sitting in both the bar area, as well as the dining
room, and either way, the staff are always professional, the food is always delicious and we always leave happy.
