Should not offer reservations through open table. They are meaningless on a Friday night. Sat at the bar as our 745 reservation was not going to sit anywhere close to that. I prefer bar sitting so not a problem there. Food delivery uneven, delayed and and overdone/ warm when entree finally arrived. They pour a good drink-easy to understand why. Bar is lively and a good time. Live music too. Would go for the bar scene, not the food.

We weren’t seated for our 7:15 reservation until 7:45, the food took forever to come out, and it was lukewarm to cold. We were at the restaurant for almost 2 hours before our main course came out, which left us no time to go out and do the after dinner activities we had planned, because we had to pick up our child from the babysitter.

Very busy during the holiday season with large groups so be prepared for a long dinner. Our table of four waited quite a while for our steaks ( which were marvelous) and the manager must have noticed our growing impatience, so he comped our cheesecakes. Food was excellent but our server was not very attentive.

Reservations were a hour behind. Server waitress was too busy to be there when you need them. For the money you pay the service sucked. The food was not $100 worth per person. Very disappointed,

The money that you pay is deffinatly not worth it. Highly over RATED!!

General Manager John is a master of the selection of staff, the culture of service, the perfect guest experience. We were a group of ten for a special occasion on a busy Saturday night that was even more memorable than the delicious feed to watch John/s staff never miss a moment to impress us.

Wasn't impressed. 45 minutes late to seating us, with a reservation. The steaks we had were much less quality than we were expecting. We would not recommend this place to others or go back ourselves.

Seating is to close to each other, and they pack u in like sardines. Not a comfortable atmosphere for the money. Plus my wife and friends chicken was very dry. Wasn't impressed with Sullivan's steakhouse this time. Haven't been there for 5 years and probably won't be back.

This was four people celebrating my 84th birthday. When we arrived at 4:30, there was one other table. When we left around 9:00, there was a huge crowd in the lobby. There were cocktails and two bottles of wine. Three of us had the shrimp/lobster soup. It was excellent. I had picked out Sullivan's for my celebration because of the rack of lamb. It was cooked perfectly. Everyone else had steaks. We had a variety of vegetables and desserts. The service was outstanding. Two managers stopped by. A lady took birthday pictures. It was a great time.

We've lived in Indianapolis/Carmel for almost 40 years. Whenever we want a special meal, we go to Sullivans. The food, service and ambiance are outstanding. My only wish is that they have prime rib! It appears that few, if any, restaurants have prime rib.

Poor experience at a place we had come to enjoy over the years. From the get go we knew something wasn’t right. The hostess area was jam packed when we arrived at 6:35 for our 6:45 reservation. We were assured that seating would be “at 6:45” by the hostess. We were seated at 7:25. At 9:00, the party seated behind us commented about just being seated for their 8:00 reservation. Something was obviously goofed in the system and bless the hostess for handling all the upset customers but it would have helped had she advised people that there was a delay. She continued to tell people she couldn’t and that “we’re just waiting for tables to be turned over”. The complimentary glasses of wine they passed out to all waiting did help in that at least we knew they felt bad about the situation.
Once seated, our waitress was pleasant and all seemed right. Smooth through drinks, salad and appetizers. Unfortunately it fell apart again at the entree course. Our steaks came out semi-warm at best and the sides followed...10 minutes later.
Not sure if this was a not being ready for holiday party situation but it has certainly soured us on one of the places we keep in our rota for special occasions.

We were extremely disappointed. This was a special night out with our kids to enjoy a nice meal prior to attending the Yuletide Celebration downtown. We waited 45 minutes past our original reservation before we left without a meal. The hostess was pleasant, and continued to ensure that we were “second on her list”, but no end was in sight. It put the whole family in a bad mood. It was drive through before barely making the show. I will NEVER go to Sullivan’s again, and I will make sure that everyone else knows how poorly they plan. I am kicking myself for waiting the 45 minutes. We don’t even do that when we don’t have a reservation.

My wife and I had dinner there on Saturday in early December 2017. The restaurant accepted a 25 person party that day which resulted in an over busy and loud occasion. We each had a filet mignon - mine was great but hers was like cold leather. They did not charge us for her steak. Appetizers were very good. The waiter was excellent. Ambiance was very loud and difficult to hold a conversation with my wife.

Great service. Beginning from the time we walked into the restaurant and the time we left. Manager talked with customers. The food was to die for. I had a nice cowboy ribeye steak. Cooked to my perfection. All I needed was a pillow after dinner , that’s how good the food was.

Everything was great excepted we order calamari and as an appetizer and it came out in less then two minutes! We did not have water or our bottle of wine. Best thing was the calamari was cold as if it was just sitting in the back waiting for someone to order it! Lucky for me I ordered it. The server asked if everything was okay and I said no the calamari is cold she apologizes and went to the back and came back a minute later with very hot and chewy calamari! Not sure how you bread and deep fry and plate calamari in under a minute but I assume
Chef microwave was involved. Once we received the bill the server was kind enough to take $.10 off the calmari! That was the very insulting but other than that the rest of the meal was outstanding! I will probably go to Fleming’s
Or Ruth Chris’ in the future and spend my hard earned money. Thank you for your time and I hope chef microwave gets laid off!

We have been eating at Sullivan’s for over 20 years. It seems to be going down hill, less food choices and constant menu changes. Usually you could order off the menu items you have previously had but waiter said no, did not ask chef. This time of year we frequent Sullivan’s but will take a long break, maybe it will improve to what it once was.

Been there a few times before and loved it... went there with the family for thanksgiving and the turkey was a 0 out of 10 ... everything else was good, but pretty disappointing how bad the turkey was especially for a thanksgiving dinner ... our server was doing great until the end where he seemed very rushed, he didn’t do anything necessarily horrible but was just far to rushed OR busy which was annoying... almost forgot our dessert (cheesecake was delicious) .. I was a server myself so I’m aware there could be many reasons for his service sliding throughout dinner...
