Dined at Sullivan's when they first opened in Baltimore many years ago and had a wonderful experience. Celebrated Valentine's a day late and wanted to share that great steakhouse experience with my lady. Things got off to a poor start almost immediately. The server, and I'll add old enough to know better, started off by making a political joke about my name. A quick reference would have probably been fine but he kept it going for too long and it quickly wore off. The initial Grey Goose martini's that were ordered obviously sat and were room temperature when finally served. No bread was offered and the service experience seemed to be getting more contentious to place the order. I felt that we were being rushed through the meal although there were plenty of open tables the entire time we were there. The food from salad to entrees was excellent. The problem is that the next time I want a great steakhouse experience, I'll pay the premium at the Prime Rib to ensure a perfect dining experience.
The food was delicious and the service was great! My wife and I had a great time here on Valentines Day..
I had not dined at Sullivan's Steakhouse in about 7 years and we looking forward to an outstanding meal. Unfortunately, it was not the Sullivan's I remembered. The staff was poorly trained and inattentive. While waiting for our table at the bar, we were offered a cocktail menu, then we never saw the bartender again. Our waiter was awkward and was surprised that we had not received bread after we were seated. We finally were served our bread three quarters of the way through our meal. Not a big deal, but the lack of attention to detail was obvious through out the night. The lobster bisque was cold and the filet's were very salty. The quality of the beef was not what I had enjoyed during prior visits. Beyond the food, I was surprised that a dress code is not enforced. Ripped jeans, hats being worn in the dinning room, it felt more like the food court at a local mall than a fine dining establishment. Overall, very disappointing and I do not plan on dining at Sullivan's anytime soon.
Good experience for the most part on Valentine's Day. The only critique I would have is that the restaurant overbooked its capacity. This caused customers like me which had a reservation at a certain time to wait an extra 30 minutes for a table to open up.
They were extremely busy but the food was good. The lettuce in my Caesar salad was that very good. Will definitely go there again.
yeah, super good beef. other stuff good too. need 50 characters
Food was amazing! I will definitely be returning! We went for our anniversary and the food was the best! Very friendly staff!
My fiancées 54th birthday. It was great. The service was excellent and our waiter was the best. He made the night extra special.
Appetizer delivered cold; shrimp and lobster bisque was much too salty and just plain terrible, steak was good. Food was overall not what I had hoped for. Staff was great. Grades: A+ for service, D for food.
I made a reservation online and didn’t expect the level of 5star service for my mom’s bday. They made me look really awesome lol. We all were Above pleased with our waiter Terrance as well as the preselected private dining room with rose petals on the table. Will return to Sullivan’s Baltimore.
Was looking for a great steak and Sullivan's delivered! The staff was very attentive. Definitely will return.
The services we had was mediocre at its best. The waitress’s attitude was very cold, very soft spoken, not a single smile the entire night, I believe her name was Kayla ? We were sitting in the booth and couldn’t hear what she was saying half of the time. Overall, this is not the services we expected from Sullivan for a night out celebrating our anniversary. In addition, the booth is extremely small for 4 people. Couldn’t even flip the gigantic menu without hitting my friend’s face, not to mention that four of us had to share one valentines menu However, The food came fast and were very delicious. If we had a different server I think our experience would have been much better.
I live walking distance from this Sullivan's and want SO badly to like this restaurant. I keep giving it "another try" but continue to be disappointed. My husband's "Sure Thing" filet preparation was too salty to eat as was the creamed spinach (that's coming from a self-proclaimed salt-aholic--I salt everything). My filet was ordered medium but came out extremely rare, not even warm in the middle (blue!). They took it back and did not replace it; it appeared to have been microwaved. The key lime pie is not what it used to be, just so so.
I don't often give bad reviews but since I have been several times without success, I thought it was time.
As always a great experience. Adam Evans and his staff are true professionals and we thoroughly enjoyed our evening. We will definitely be back.
We went there for our yearly birthday dinner-no mention of the birthday until we were leaving by the hostess. When the waiter came he asked what I wanted to drink and never asked my husband. Lobster was tough and tasted weird. Forgot my husband's salad and tried to charge us for it. Won't go back again! Definitely not worth the money!
Everything is OK but took almost 20min to get my car from valet when there was no line
We went on a Wednesday evening for my son's birthday. We had a "mixed experience". They were trying but fell short on service. The waiter reeked of smoke, but was kind. Unfortunately he got my son's steak order wrong (strip instead of filet) so they had to take it back, and his meal didn't arrive until after the rest of us had finished. They gave us a $12.00 credit and apologized but the evening was not what we hoped. We ordered the "sure thing" and the portions of all three courses were sizeable and tasty. Overall, we would return, just some blips in the service that evening.
Went to dinner on Saturday night, was sat immediately. Waiter offered us drinks, we were the only table that was not offered glasses for our beers. Both steaks we asked for medium, both steaks came out very rare. The broccoli was still frozen but the waiter never checked on us so we could say something. Overall very disappointed in the service and food.
The hostess was excellent. Our waiter was very good, when our food came out under cooked the manager came over and apologized. They gave us a discount on the food which was greatly appreciated . The negative for me was the bathrooms were filthy , worse than a gas station. The price of the food is fine dining but the food quality and service does not live up.
The food was absolutely excellent! However the cocktail menu is atrocious. The cocktails tasted terrible. The top shelf liquor left a lot to be desired. To be quite frank, it tasted like water.
service was very poor and food took forever steak was under cooked waitress forgot to bring bread to table drinks were empty never cam by to ask ion we wanted another for the money it defiantly was not worth it will not be dinning there in the foreseen future
Great attentive service from Andre. Knowledgeable of menu and drinks. Overall friendly server. Other members and management stopped over. All needs where met.
My husband and I found this spot many years ago and we are definitely a fan for life! We have visited many steak house restaurants over the years from pricey to very expensive and nothing beats Sullivan's. The flavor of each medium prepared steak (our preference) is priceless! It is simply delicious! Everything about Sullivan's is a true experience from their signature cocktails and starter meals to the desserts. OMG!!!!
Don't take my word......experience it for yourself!
Sullivan’s does a great job with restaurant week. Try to make reservations early than you plan as it can be very busy during this time.
This place is awesome. Unfortunately we didn’t get a good table because it was restaurant week. At least that’s what our waiter told us. That was really the only hiccup. The bar was great. My steak was too 5 all time. Cooked perfectly. The mashed potatoes were great. Our waiter was great as well. We’ll definitely go back next time we’re in Baltimore.
We had never been to Sullivan's before and decided to try it out during Baltimore Restaurant Week. We are pleased to report that we had a wonderful time! Everyone from the hostess, to our server, and the other table attendants were friendly, courteous, and seemed genuinely happy to be working at Sullivan's. Our server TJ was excellent -- friendly, knowledgeable, and super-energetic. Our steaks were prepared exactly as requested and the potatoes, vegetables, and bordelaise sauce were equally satisfying. In a city with quite a few outstanding steakhouses, Sullivan's rates right up there at the top!
Food was good, service was great, but the restaurant was dirty. The bathroom had mold growing in the toilet, there was a significant ammount of dust in the dining room, wine glasses were dirty, and the silverware was dirty.
We enjoyed our time at Sullivans! Great service and even better food! My sister enjoyed the birthday celebration
Steaks are always delicious! Service is good and Restaurant is pretty quiet. Separated well from the bar area.
Had a great birthday dinner party service was outstanding and food was delicious
When I entered the restaurant, the lady at the desk was on the phone so we waited for her to finish. She looked up and said "You have a reservation-right".
The waiter tried to upsell us after hearing we wanted the restaurant week menu. When we didn't bite, he all but forgot about us.
Within 1 minute of my drink arriving, my salad was placed in front of me - so much for enjoying the drink.
My very first bite of "prime" sirloin was a mouthful of gristle. The vegetable was something I could not figure out, I think it was sautéed onions without the actual vegetable.
We asked for more bread. When it came, the busboy didn't know where it went and walked away with the basket - we never got it.
The check arrived in under 50 minutes - I guess they needed our 2 seat table for someone else. I'm surprised as the restaurant was half empty.
I will never go back and I will tell everyone else the same thing.
What a disappointment for my first time in Baltimore.
By the way, the waiter stunk also - if he called me guy one more time, I was going to hit him.
Even though I arranged for wife’s bd, no candle in dessert. Steaks were prepped with way too much pepper and had to scrap it off.. also steps outside had snow on them. No salt was applied.
We love this place. Prob been here 10 times and it is always the best, thanks!!!!!
Besides the curt hostess who was annoyingly trying to rush us to our table (at 5:15 when the place was empty) when we saw an old friend and client at the bar that we were talking to, food on restaurant week menu was very good and a great value.
It was my 50th birthday great experience and service was excellent
Service was great! Meal was just okay.
This was one of the absolute worst business lunches I have ever had. When we were seated the dining room was fairly empty and the waiter came and took our order. We all (6) opted for the 3 course business lunch.....the first course came for half of us and came just AFTER the main course for the other half, which we politely declined. 2 of us got the brick chicken, which after eating half of it was noticed to be completely RAW in the middle. I actually was a bit ill the rest of the day and not at all happy.....we declined new dishes and after sending the check back had our soups that never came and the chicken removed. It was a horrible experience and having eaten there numerous times, I will most certainly NOT go back again. I actually reached out to Sullivan's to explain my concerns and got NO RESPONSE. Too many good places to eat in the harbor to go back here again.....
We have eaten dinner at Sullivan's many times and find the restaurant to be consistently excellent. As part of the Del Frisco family of restaurants it definitely holds its own
Steak was very good as well as sides! Service was very good and a nice ambiance
Celebrating daughter and husband’s birthday. Service was outstanding! Steaks were delicious but expensive. Thought we would get more for our $.
