 (Chicago)·Dined 4 days ago

This is one of the restaurants that provide great food and service with consistency. We went there last Saturday to celebrate my birthday and they were kind enough to accomodate our needs to tweak the original reservation of 8 people to 9 shortly after I booked it online. Also it was the day that Michigan Avenue had the Holiday Light parade and traffic was bad in the area; my in-laws were late for 45 min and they were panic that we wouldn't be able to get our table. But we were seated long before they even told us they would be late and the restaurant staff didn't have a single complaint on the long wait. Very delicious calamari appetizer - Slightly different from the one I first had years ago but still much tastier than average calamari dishes. Steaks were cooked decently to appeal everyone's taste at the table. Last but not least, desert is fantastic too. This is a restaurant that doesn't need those "rare and unique" fancy flavors nowadays you see at some Michelin's - It has all the authentic dishes and does it right. Same with the service - Nothing fancy but pretty accomodating. I would definitely want to go there again sometime in the future.

I have been to Sullivan's several times before ... but it has been some time. My past experiences were good ... but apparently what was good in the past has deteriorated in the interim. The restaurant was virtually empty when we were seated and it took quite some time to be recognized by our server ... who I believe was recruited directly from Mel's Dinner. Our meal arrived before we were finished with our starters. We ordered the fixed menu but we did not expect the meal to be pre-cooked. The meat was dry (although we ordered medium) and warm (not hot) and the steak resembled stew meat more than filet. Our dessert order was taken but no one asked if we wanted coffee or an after dinner drink. It took longer to get the check than it took get our meal. A very poor performance in my view ... and I will not go back there again.

We had a wonderful night together, made that much better by our sever, Mike. He was very helpful with wine and meal selection and overall very knowledgeable. We were there for our anniversary and it was truly amazing. Thank you so much to everyone at Sullivan's and Mike especially for making our night amazing.

This is a classic Chicago steakhouse, and in an area packed with steakhouses Sullivan's stands out. We had both a NY Strip and a filet and both were excellent. The atmosphere was great, the bartender puts together an outstanding drink and knew his way around the wine list, and the prices were about as decent as I'd expect in the city. I would have liked a little more on my plate than the steak and a few spears of asparagus, but the taste made up for the lack of sides.

I do not recommend Sullivan’s. Not only was the service slow for food and valet, the food wasn’t too great. The calamari and cheese steak egg rolls were the only good things I tired. Also, in my reservation I asked for a special dessert after we were done with our food, someone confirmed ir upon arrival and we still didn’t get it. I will never go back. It wasn’t worth the money over $100 bill for bland food and slow service.

Were joined by our friends with both couples celebrating 40th wedding anniversaries. Entire staff was very involved in making this a very special dining experience. Have eaten at Sullivan's on several occasions over 5 year period. Our table is always treated as if we were the most important table in the restaurant. When our 6 year old granddaughter is with us, she is treated as a valued guest. Fine food exceeded only by super staff.

Have always enjoyed Sullivan's (always love the lamb) however, I had the lamb this trip and it was unfortunately not good. Tasted like it had been previously frozen and the exterior fat had definitely oxidized (was rancid). Everyone else in my party enjoyed so I would say everything else was good. The lamb however was not.

Tired after a ballgame day at Wrigley. Made last minute reservation and 15 minutes later we were sitting in this great atmosphere with jazz music playing, with attentive waiter Harrison at our side. We did the Prix Fixe menu, salad wedge was the best I have ever had, steak was perfectly cooked, and key lime pie was homemade. All in all, an excellent experience. The entire staff treated us like kings. I will definitely be back!

Our cocktails were served right away with our calimari appetizer. All great! I ordered a glass of wine and my husband ordered beer and we asked that it be served with dinner. Our salads came and we asked for our drinks. The waiter said he'd get them right away. They never arrived. We asked for them when our steaks were served. The waiter said they were bringing my wine down from the cooler and we'd have our drinks right away. One of my husband's medallions was not very warm so he asked to have it warmed up. The other medallions were very good. We were half way through our steaks when the wine finally arrived. By this time, the tone of dinner had gone from us being very pleased to annoyed. Finally, the general manager came by and apologized and comped my wine. It would have been so much better if they had said that my wine woukd take awhile and offer for me to order something else.

No wonder the next door Best Western River North gives you a 25$ coupon for Sullivan ( for spending over 50$). I took the set menu 44$ and the chowder was awful: salt with chowder flavor. The main dish was a half baked salmon with 3 asparagus. Left half of it. The dessert was described as a cheesecake and I guess it must have been! Who am I to tell? Sullivan knows better.
