Our server, Daija, made our night so special. From the time we sat down to the time we left. We celebrated an anniversary and when she brought our dessert out she wrote “happy anniversary” on the plate, one of the host also came an took our picture, and Daija wrote us a note saying happy anniversary and things along those lines. It definitely made us feel so special. I will be returning and asking for her every time. Definitely a night to remember. Thank you Daija and Sullivan’s for making the small things even more special.

We sat off to the side in a somewhat closed off area. It was very quiet and relaxing. The food was good, the service was good, the martini was good. Just a nice relaxing evening.

This was our first time visiting Sullivan's and we thought it was absolutely fantastic. The steaks we ordered were prepared perfectly. I was really glad we tried the garlic butter on our steak. It made our steaks phenomenal. I couldn't stop raving about our experience and the food. We will definitely be returning in the very near future.

Wonderful dining experience and near the mall, which made it very easy accessible.
We had a reservation and when we were seated, we were quite rudely informed that “just for our future reference, the restaurant NEVER seats their guests until their reservation time.” It wasn’t the fact of seating time, rather her tone and disposition of informing us of the standard we should expect.
Outside of this experience, the food, ambiance and wait staff were impeccable.

We had a wonderful time overall. Friendly bar staff decanted a lovely bottle of wine for us. Z waited table and was good at his job. The lamb was cooked to perfection but somehow a ribeye steak ordered to be cooked medium came to the table well done. It was compensated for but did take the edge of our wedding anniversary meal.

Our foursome got caught in a "perfect storm" between two large groups that had to be accommodated. We think somehow we were forgotten. Therefore, our wives' hamburgers had been sitting for awhile so they were sort of dry. My NY strip steak and my friend's steak salad were excellent, as were the horseradish mashed potatoes and, of course, the lettuce wedge with bleu cheese dressing. Our waiter and the manager were very apologetic and accommodated us with four glasses of a very fine Pino Noir. Still, the evening was less enjoyable than we expected.

The restaurant seemed noisier than usual and the music was loud.

This is our first less-than-excellent experience at Sullivan's. We hope it was a fluke. Will still return and will still recommend it to others.

Waiter Dan did a good job, particularly with our group that included 3 non-native English speakers. The attendant servers were very quick to refill water glasses, and were good enough to know not to remove plates until everyone was done with a particular course, which is a pet peeve. Overall good food and good service.

Unfortunately another mediocre meal at Sullivans. I haven't been there for over 2 years because the last time, and the time before, we had issues with overcooked/undercooked food, plates being given to the wrong person at the table, etc. Our server this time was Glen and he was very accommodating but my shrimp cocktail was underwhelming, cocktail sauce that could have been from Heinz, shrimp that were mid-sized, unattractively plated on a bed of ....maybe shredded cabbage. No flavor. I took a Lobster bisque carryout for my Mother and it was so salty, even for me, that it was barely edible. Lots of lobster in it but the salt was over the top. This was the last try for Sullivans, such a shame after they put so much work into the new façade,

I was very disappointed with our last visit to Sullivan's. We have been loyal customers for many years. The issue I have is with the poor training that is being done for the floor staff. We had a very nice server - who had zero knowledge of wine, timing, wine pairing, etc. That was not the fault of the server - that was poor training by management. The restaurant has done a very nice job with their appearance - but you need to spend some time with training. We ordered oysters - and our server tried to serve us our Cabernet first...not the Chablis that we ordered specifically for the seafood course. With so many steakhouse options on the north side of Indianapolis, service is crucial.

We went early this visit and the restaurant was pretty quiet for most of our meal. The steaks we had were fantastic but the sides only so-so. Appetizers were also not fantastic, like cheese-steak egg rolls were not to be reordered. Service was a little pushy in trying to take away unfinished dishes, and we were never asked for a bread refill. Prices were sky high with the total bill for 3 being at least 20% more than a comparable meal in a very similar steakhouse in town. Expensive even with alcoholic beverages NOT being ordered. We probably won't return in a very long time because the value just wasn't there.

This was out first time dining here. The take home for my review is about the customer service. Sullivans (at least this location) gets a A+ in my book. Our food came out right on pace (it was a very relaxed casual dinner crowd). My food was prepared incorrectly. The management staff (and our server) quickly jumped into action to ensure that I had a corrected meal and that I enjoyed it. As a matter of fact (without disclosing every detail) I believe they went above and beyond, my expectations for a solution. We will dine here again, I'm sure.

Oh ... the mac n cheese was probably one of the best (meatless) restaurant mac n cheese I've had in quite sometime. The smoked gouda really sets the tone.

We have always liked Sullivan’s but hadn’t been there for a while. Service was great and I forgot how nice the atmosphere is there. Jay, our waiter was outstanding and we had a nice experience. All of our food was delicious - my husband’s filet was much more tender than my NY strip but the waiter offered to take it back but I didn’t want to ruin dinner with being “that person”! My fault, I should have ordered the filet! Jay was awesome and responsive about our wine choice and made another suggestion in the same category and price range that was fantastic! Great experience!

My steak was burned on top and that was not to my liking. The server took it back and they made a new one. I asked for medium but it was medium well.
My friend and I were both celebrating our birthdays. We received a small piece of cheesecake,
complimentary for the birthday.
Two years ago we celebrated our birthdays at Sullivan’s and they took a picture of each of us and put them in a paper frame and also gave us a birthday card signed by all the stafff. They
made our day feel special.
However, this year they did not do either. They must be cutting back on customer service.
They made our day feel festive two years ago with happy smiles and the extras. The hostess who sat us yesterday 10/27/17, was all business and did not smile or have a kind word for us even though I told her it was our birthday. I had made a reservation and she said yes it was written down that it was our birthday when I asked her if my reservation reflected such. An upfront hostess should smile and be uplifting to the customers. I like returning to restaurants
where they take the time to smile and make one feel welcomed. The server was good and interacted with us.

What a lovely evening our group had a Sullivan's! We went to celebrate two birthdays and to enjoy good conversation and excellent food. Once the hostess discovered two guests had birthdays, the staff helped us celebrate by presenting certificates for dessert. At the conclusion of our meal, the server took a photo of our group, printed copies for each of us as a memento of the evening. Not only did we have a wonderful meal, the restaurant made the birthday celebrate memorable.

My party enjoyed perfectly prepared food and polished, courteous and expert service from start to finish. The newly remodeled dining room is beautiful and successfully pulls off being both cozy and energetic. I’ve enjoyed Sullivan’s with a large group of friends, as well as with an intimate party of just two. I have both dairy and gluten food sensitivities, and my waiter was more than happy to make sure my selections were appropriate for my diet and place my order accurately. I highly recommend Sullivan’s and will definitely continue to return!
