It is a fantastic place to dine for a special occasion but the prices are inhibiting. I loved the attention both of us received but I know there are restaurants who have food just as delicious for the half the price. I would recommend Sullivan's for a couple but it is definitely too pricey for most families.

We celebrated our 30th anniversary and everything was fantastic. Both the hostess and our server recognized our anniversary and we got our picture taken. The table was decorated with rose petals. The food was great as usual and the service was excellent. I ordered my steak medium rare and it was perfect. My wife ordered medium and ended up sending it back to be cooked a little longer. Like the idea they have you cut into the steak as they are still there to make sure it is cooked like you want it.

Every time we go to Sullivan's the service is amazing and the food is absolutely delicious. This time when we went it was our anniversary and they do little extras that just make you feel special.

Everything was fine except they set us up in the overflow section of the bar. It just didn’t feel special. We could hear the piano player which was nice but the room was quiet and plain. David (our server) was very professional and that made up for it a little. We’ve been going here for our anniversary at least 6 or 7 years now and this was first time we didn’t get to sit in the main dining room. A bit of a let down. Next time I will request it in my reservations. It’s almost like they did it to all the special occasion couples so the picture taker could do her job better and she was low energy. Maybe too much for her to manage. At any rate it’s still one of if not the best place to eat in Indy.

Hadn’t been there for several years. Went early before reservation for drink at bar and was greatly disappointed in the slow untrained bartender and what had been an elegant bar has been dumbed down with video screens for watching sports and HGTV decor. Seems the idea of dressing stylishly to go out has been forgotten as many of the patrons were in cutoffs and flip flops. I thought there was a dress code. The highlight of the bar was the young female singer. The dining room and service was excellent as it has always been. It so nice to have a professional waiter, a rare commodity in Indianapolis. Do miss their signature soufflé desserts. We will be going back but to a different bar beforehand.

Seating was next to a large group; as large groups usually do, that group created a lot of noise. When that group left, another group was seated next to us, even though many other tables were vacant. Seems as though another location could have been chosen for the new group.

The lighting was very dim -- so much so that it was impossible to read the menu.

Great atmosphere and couldn’t have asked for more form the staff. Very high quality food with exquisite taste. My only complaint was being asked on four separate occasions by four different member of the staff if it was a special occasion.

Disappointingly terrible service Friday night 8/30/2019. It was a surprisingly not busy at all and my first time visiting for a date night and celebration of purchasing our home. Our server, Andrea, dropped salads meant for the table next to us, not a big problem, brought us our soups we ordered shortly after. From there it went downhill, that same table next to us received their meals (steak entrees), ate, had dessert, received their bill and paid all before we received our meals. The server kept saying sorry it's taking so long and we were understanding for a long time. We had both ordered steak entrees cooked medium. We aren't usually ones to complain but at the 1.5 hour mark we finally approached the manager explaining how long we had been waiting and how odd it was the table next to us had the same server and much more timely service. He asked what table we were at, we told him 221 and then that was the end of it. He never stopped by, nothing was ever addressed. Then then the server tried to give us a bill approximately $40 higher than what it was supposed to be. She said she hardly ever works here and fixed it, then we left saying what a shame it was the service was so awful because the food was delicious. We will not be returning.

Way too noisy and the tables are so close together. Next time I know to ask for a quiet, out of the way table. Our server was great, we had Malik. Highly recommend for special occasions.

Kevin was our waiter and he was very attentive but not bothersome. The other staff were pleasant also.
We were a little disappointed that we were not offered a free drink, appetizer or desert as we have always received in the past. We celebrate our anniversaries there almost every year and this was our 50th Anniversary. The food was great the service was good and Kevin was the best waiter/waitress we have ever had. Thank you so much to Kevin.

Our food was ALL excellent, truly excellent. The steaks were fantastic quality, cut, and prep. The salmon was some of the best I’ve ever had. Drinks were lovely. Server was very very nice, but very new. Food expediter female was very grumpy and snotty toward our server. Issue was we were greatly overcharged for both drinks and dinner, and our entrees were served less than 5 minutes after our starters. Our orders were not correct but we could tell that the server was knew and didn’t know the menu yet so we said nothing. Items were missing, we were misled and ended up with both baked potatoes and mashed potatoes. It was a mess. We were the last table so we were in a rush to get out so they could close so we didn’t look at our bill and Just paid it, but we were overcharged for cocktails, wine, & side dishes. While the food was excellent, the restaurant is beautiful, and our server was very nice, I think we’ll stick with our favorite other steakhouse at Keystone next time.

Our rib eye steaks while flavorful were tough and difficult to chew. Not the quality I expect from Sullivan’s. Also the wedge salad was pretty ordinary. Just lettuce and diced tomatoes. Some bacon - croutons- seeds would have been a nice addition.
