The quality of the food did not match cost. Great steak. Lamb was not as great.

Went out for thanksgiving due to we are moving in a week and things are packed up and a mess. 1st time we’ve done this in the 20yrs we’ve been married. The restaurant was not very busy. My wife and daughter ordered the thanksgiving dinner assuming they would get everything that the menu promised. That didn’t happen. They were out of cranberries which may not be a big deal to many, but it was to us. If the server had told them ahead of time that they’d been sold out for “hours”, her words, they probably would have ordered off the main menu. The server seemed disinterested in being there that night which I can understand. She was not attentive and just non-chalant in general. We likely won’t be back and we eat out often.

Service was medicore, food was average and very overpriced. Dissapointing as I have been there in the past and it has generally been very good. Maybe b/c holiday

Told hostess at check in that we were celebrating our anniversary. When seated the table had rose petals and a card signed by the staff. Haylie, our server, was outstanding. Attentive and upbeat. Food was great. Steak cooked to perfection. Wonderful evening.

My husband ordered a filet, 8oz butterflied. It was way too done & really not much flavor he reported. He loved the lettuce wedge though & the potatoes were good. I had the salmon & it was delicious. The asparagus left a lot to be desire though (mushy) & the sauce, whatever it was, on the plate didn't seem to compliment it at all. We got the special price Fixe & brought our dessert home. It was the cheesecake & tasted good. Our service was good although we did have to find our server to ask for salt & pepper. I had asked to be socially distanced & we certainly were. We were in the upper room with no one else the entire evening. There were 5 of us & we had a large round table which was perfect.

The food was great. The waitresses seemed to be in a rush to take our plates away when were were not finished with our items. The mac n cheese was not what we expected. It tasted very burnt.

There was a bit of confusion on who our waiter/waitress was at first. They both were asking orders. Our glasses were cracked all the way through and they were replaced. Other than that, service was very good. The food was excellent.

We order the Grand Prix fixed menu. My filet was medium, but overdone on the outside. Very good but I couldn’t eat parts being too dark......overdone.

Felt a little rushed. Done in under an hour of sitting, appetizers, salad/soup and main course. Steak was excellent. Perfectly cooked. Scallops were slightly undercooked. French onion soup was excellent, caesar salad was nothing to write home about. Overall, not terribly memorable. Ordered wine with dinner, had to ask for it after I was nearly done with my food only to find out they were out of what I ordered. Substitute was quickly brought. No harm, no foul. Would give them another try.

We were celebrating our 25th wedding anniversary with our kids. Sullivan’s made it extra special with flower petals on table, a card from the staff and a picture to cap off the evening. Made it a special evening!

Steak was delicious. Sullivan's has the best hot creamy garlic mashed potatoes. Next time will ask for dressing on the side on the wedge. A little too much for my liking.

Our table was decorated with rose pedals and a card to celebrate our 44th anniversary. A complimentary desert complimented a really tasty meal perfectly prepared. The staff took our picture and printed it for us as a memoir. A really enjoyable and relaxing time at Sulivan’s!!

We have not been to Sullivan’s since before the pandemic and things sure have changed.

They did not have the bottle of wine we requested from the menu.

The plate was sparse, three stalks of asparagus with a 10 oz. steak?

The steak was extremely over seasoned.

We ordered off the price fixed list due to the cost of a steak being nearly $50.00.

Service was good, server seamed “extremely wired” and it was a little “over the top”.

Many other places to get a good steak in Indianapolis where the ambiance is better and you can get a better value for your money.

Wonderful quality steaks cooked to perfection. The staff was friendly and attentive, making sure our steaks were cooked to order and we were satisfied. Pricey, but worth it for a special night out.

Our waiter September, was delightful and on top of our need to leave on time for an event. The steaks were great but the mashed potatoes are somewhat dry The sides are huge. Plenty to share with the table.

Simply stated this was one of the worst food experiences I have had in a restaurant of this caliber.

Lobster Bisque was basically orange cream

Spinach was ok

Tomahawk ribeye âged steak was awful, had no flavor, no fat, was as tender as leather bag could taste like 💩

Their specialty - Scallops Oscar style 🤮. Imagine if you took frozen scallops, nuked them, then poured 1000 island sauce over Imitation crab meat, except scallops were not cooked all the way through and were chewy.

Finally for desert - key lime pie, I took a pic of this horrible creation, it was purple with arrangement of lime shavings, and what looked like sriracha sauce but was actually strawberry purée attempt. It smelled like dirty underwear. 🤮

Banana Bread pudding: imagine flavored warm banana bread. Except crunchy, because it was not Fresh.

The best thing that night was an ice cream scoop. And tonic water with lime.

Apparently their chef is a vegetarian.

I’ve lived in Indy 15 years ago, came back for a weekend, wanted to try a steak house - this is not the Sullivans I remembered.

Awful. Simply awful.

Delicious as usual. I had the crab cakes and they were the best I have ever had, chunks of crab. My husband had the filet, cooked exactly right and delicious. We also had bread and garlic mashed potatoes. Everything was great! It is a little pricey, but high quality!

Was good as usual. The manager and the lady that seats you were real good. Was our anniversary. They did a good job. Our waitress was good. She kept taking items off table and still needed some. But she was good.
