The food here is good. They gave me a single long stem flower when I came in, which I thought was nice.

The cheesesteak rolls were amazing!!! My food was good.

The service is very good. There is always someone available asking if everything was okay.

It was date night and our waitress and I think her name was chantel was amazing, very friendly and knowledgeable. Food was good except my filet was ordered medium and it came out more like medium rare, so when they recooked it a little more it was burnt on the outside and still not cooked inside and had to much seasoning..kinda like they cooked it Pittsburgh style.

Sullivan's has a great layout and ambiance, with soft music, low noise, efficient and attentive staff, willing and ready to accommodate. Wine selection was better than most restaurants, with excellent selections. Food was generally very good but not exceptional. Steaks were cooked a category more well-done than ordered on two entrees. Potatoes au gratin side is not to be missed. I will go back and would recommend. Order your meats one grade more rare than you normally do.

Sadly not the same, upscale experience portions were hearty, steaks done right, drinks were plentiful. Tonight started with 2 of the $14-15 martini’s that were just about half full...my main pet peeve at restaurants anymore!. Salads were good. Main courses were pretty good; steak was slightly over cooked but not too bad. Side of $11 sautéed spinach was barely enough for one person AND it was burnt & not seasoned as described. Baked potato was way over cooked. Service was ok...had to track down waitress for salt and had to wait several minutes on our sides to come after main dishes were served. Just a “meh” experience & value. Will not be returning.

In from Out of town. We always look for the best steakhouses when we travel. And we don’t mind spending top dollar for the best places. This place seemed like a good fit. It took us over 90 minutes from the time our order was placed until we actually got our food they did apologize once or twice during the incredible wait but then Manager also came over the end but we’re only able to offer us 25% off the bill which in hindsight was not nearly enough. The New York strips were the fattest worst quality I’ve seen especially for a high-end steakhouse. The fillet one of us got actually looked pretty good. The sides were OK. The server did the best she could buy there’s no excuse for such terrible time management and poor food quality . Even with the discount , 4 meals and some bar drinks , it was still a 300$ check with tip . We spend that often but have never had such a bad value . Try one of the other high end places in town .

This was our first time coming to Sullivan’s. We’ve been to several big name restaurants that offer steaks. Last nights meal included a steak that was one of the best I’ve had in a long time. The drinks were spectacular and the food was excellent. I had the New York Strip which was cooked to perfection. The Oysters Rockefeller was the best we’ve ever tasted. The meal was worth the money spent.

Reservations were at 7:45 didn’t finish our meal until 10:30PM.. the slowest dinner service ever, lack of communication from our server didn’t help much either. Appetizers came on time but we literally waited an hour to receive our entrees then another 25 minutes to receive our side dishes. Even paying was horrible. Asked for the check at 10pm and didn’t sign our receipts until 10:30. Tragic!

Food quality was very poor. The meat seemed like a lower grade and quality than it used to be when we often came for special events. The service was really, really slow. It took 1 hr 20 mins to get our entrees!! The manager came by and apologized but there’s no way to correct poor quality meat and slow service. We will NOT be back. It’s just not worth paying such a premium dollar amount on a poor experience when there are countless other restaurant options in Charlotte. Competition is a beautiful thing!

Server was overworked and assigned too many tables. Food was over cooked. We have enjoyed Sullivan’s for years but this visit was very disappointing. Certainly not up to normal standards. Absolutely not worth the price.

Sadly this Sullivan’s did not live up To expectations! The steaks were under cooked and presented on a cold plate Luke warm. Too many choices in town to accept mediocre experience.

Ribeye done right and very tasty
Filet ordered med rare but came out very medium... didn’t send back. Was good but overdone

For as much as I heard about Sullivan's I was greatly disappointed. The NY Strip was paper thin and had more "grizzle" than any other steakhouse I have ever dined. The key lime pie for desert tasted as if an entire bottle of lime juice

Sullivan’s leaves a lot to be desired, especially considering this is a fine dining establishment (of sorts). I’ve often left yearning for more and the food is very inconsistent. Each time, I’ve had to send my food back due to: steak being over-cooked, potato au gratin lacked cheese and the Brussel sprouts are now shaved vs sliced in half. Interestingly enough, their wedge salad is served without bacon - I found that odd and it must be requested. You’ll be better off spending a few more bucks at Fleming’s or Del Frisco’s.

Service was fantastic and steaks were cooked perfectly as ordered. We sat outside and there is a lot of traffic so can be quite noisy at rush hour.
