 (Charlotte)·Dined a day ago

This was our second trip to Sullivan’s in the last 60 days and we were supremely disappointed. The last experience was sub-par due to food not being prepared properly and the stiff not being attentive to the factors surrounding that experience and this experience was more of the same.

After ordering our meal, we waited 45 plus minutes for it to arrive. All four of our party ordered seafood. Which cooks very quickly. Two of the four meals came out Luke-warm at best. They fixed replacements and one of them came to the table and was bit cooked properly. They offered a addition side item and them didn’t bring it to the table.

I understand restaurants get busy, but when I select an upscale restaurant where I’m going to spend $100/person to eat dinner I expect a level of service that is a step above the average restaurant. Sullivan’s missed the mark on my last two visits, I’m not sure I’ll go back. There are too many options for me to go to a place that couldn’t get it right for me. Perfect is a high bar, but when I pay $50 for a steak, they should cook it properly.

Booth requested was not available when we arrived. Several items requested were not what we expected. For example, a sauce we liked was watered down. The martini glass was reduced in size. Also, the wait staff looked like they had been replaced, so we felt no connection.

Sticker shock, never paid 215.00 for (2) dinner in my life which I have eaten at some nice places in Europe , France and Germany etc....that had well known chef's. But the food was really good and just might be a long while before I spend that type of money here in Charlotte to eat. But...... if you wanted to go out a show off this is the place..

There for Valentine's celebration. Food was good, ambience good, service was great...Only problem was the fact that I left my entire key ring with the valet and when I returned home, my house key had been removed from my ring...

Meh, went for Valentines Day. Had to cancel our reservation at Del Friscos, so we ended up here. $300 for a meal. I could have made same at home just as good for less than $60. Well, wife wants to go out, so I bend over and take it. Nothing knocked my socks off except for the service, and the fact that I didn't have to do it. Also, I ordered the Fois Gras on mine, but my wife did not. I got mine, and there was none on my wife's plate, which was accurate. But the check had charged both of us for the $15 extra. I'll never order that again. I looked up what it was and how it comes to be, ad wtf, I wanted to join PITA after that. And I'm not one of those kooks. Still trying to figure out how the Prix Fixe Menu for $79 each ($150 total) came out to $250. I had 2 beers and a bourbon (8, 8, 12) and my wife had a martini ($15). So $43. I guess there must have been $57 in tax on that. Anyway, being valentines day, I didn't want to make a fuss, so I just bent over and took it. I'm sure they would have worked it out if I wanted to make a fuss and ruin the ambiance and moment. All that being said, the food was very good, and no complaints. Just the fact that they bent me over the barrel and would have to spoil the mood to get everything sorted severely irritated me. $300 meal after tip (%20). Not worth the money.

We went to Sullivan’s for Valentine’s Day/wife’s birthday. First visit. Amazing service. I had the ribeye cooked medium and easily one of the best 3 steaks I’ve had in my life. Sides were mashed potatoes and creamy spinach and they were pretty good also. We will definitely be back.

Calling in the night of the reservation, no tables would have been available. A reservation on Open Table 2 minutes later did work anyway, so we chose this option and were seated in a booth after what felt like a long waiting time.
The booth sitting experience is rather cramped, when you either are tall or bring a bit of extra weight, so next time we would all switch to a regular table. The light was a bit too dimmed for my taste and the noise level quite high. We were there in the summer as well, sitting outside and it it was more relaxed in general, granted this weekend was the one leading up to Valentines Day.
We loved the wine choices and the portion size was very good. My NY strip was ok, nice outside crust, but a bit chewy otherwise. The Ribeye was very tasty, so were the asparagus and mushrooms and the cheesecake for dessert.

I am not going to spend a lot of time with this review. My wife and I are not huge foodies. We go out a lot and have been to many nice restaurants and expected this to be one of them. Our issues were: late seating (not a big deal if that is the only issue), ordered dinner and waitress came back and said they were out of baked potatoes "for about 45 minutes" (OK I understand if a restaurant, even a nice one, is out of something but a steakhouse, on a Saturday night, at 8:00 pm???) The steaks were about what I would expect from Applebee's. Our dinner with 3 wines @$10.00ea. was $137.00 + tip of $26.00 = $163.00. Could have been an off night but I am not going to risk going back.

We came on short notice on a pre-Valentine's weekend sporting an email for a $39 special. Even though they were not offering the special for the weekend, the manager kindly extended it to us. The prix fixe was splendid and I ended with their always scrumptious bananas foster cake. Our steaks were excellent. My wife had the filet and I had the NY strip. Despite being very busy evening, our service was top notch and had a visit from the manager. Sorry there are no Sullivan's in Atlanta!

Fantastic spot. Wasn't sure what to expect, never heard of it before. Food was fantastic - best ribeye I've ever heard and the special butters is what set it apart.

I had the cajun butter and before the first bite I expected that typical cajun heat - but there was none. Instead it was just flavor. I told my wife "It's the flavor. It's like someone took this butter straight out of someone's backyard in the swamps."

Two managers came over and spoke with us, both very friendly and politely interrupted our conversation - that takes good soft skills to find the right moment to interrupt someone.

Kudos all around. Definitely coming back.

We had a 15 minute wait for a table. There seemed to be more tables added and smaller booths which added to the noise level. Our service was fine. It took a while to get the wine. After we required about it, it was served quickly. The server was very attentive, making sure the steak was cooked perfectly. The food was delicious as always.

Our experience at Sullivan's was excellent. We'd traveled from Alabama to attend the Andrea Boccelli concert. The service was outstanding and the food as well. I'll be recommending Sullivan's to friends and business associates. Megan, our server did a great job and was particularly pleasant. She knew the food well and made excellent recommendations when asked. Thank you for a great experience. I don't know what you're paying Megan, but it's not enough.

We were looking for an upscale option for the entire family to celebrate my husband's birthday. Fortunately, we were able to book a table on Super Bowl Sunday, and practically had the entire restaurant to ourselves. Our servers, Michael and Melissa, were friendly and fun and very patient with the children (ages 11, 13, 15 and 17). They were very attentive to our questions and interests and made it clear that their priority was for us to have a flawless meal. The service and the meal were impeccable! My husband had one drink (an Old Fashioned) from the bar and he loved it. We shared a bottle of wine that was the featured special and it was delicious. Most of us had a filet, and each was cooked exactly as we'd ordered. One of my daughters had the shrimp and lobster bisque as her meal and it was delicious. Another daughter ordered a baked potato and it was an enormous portion, and plenty for her meal. We will definitely return!

Food was very good. Service was spotty. Server had too many tables and could not give proper attention to any of her tables. Table location was terrible. It was in high traffic area with too many pinch points. Obviously management was trying to squeeze as many bodies in as possible. This was our first and last experience at Sullivan's. We will return to The Palm and Beef & Bottle in the future.

We planned a birthday celebration on a Saturday night for a group of 9 and phoned ahead to make sure we would have a special night. The service was slow, we had the wrong food delivered, they were out of the champagne we wanted, we poured our own wine, as the waiter didn’t check in to pour wine. To be fair, we had appetizers and deserts (which didn’t have the candles we phoned ahead for) removed from our bill, but it wasn’t the experience I had hoped for $700!
