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.

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.

The biggest frustration was having a confirmed reservation for 8pm and not being seated until 8:45, with no other explanation than they were "busy"

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...

We went to Sullivan's for Thanksgiving and the entire table was happy with everything, except the noise level, as it was a bit hard to hear one another. We were seated in the back by the kitchen, and I think that was the source of a great deal of the noise. Our food was great, as was the service from Sarah. Every staff member was attentive and gracious, and made us feel welcome. Yes, we would return...happily.

We held our company holiday dinner at Sullivan's with 17 attendees. The hostess and manager were helpful and friendly. The bar staff was professional and attentive. The waitresses were efficient, knowlegable and eager to please. The atmosphere and food were fantastic. It is a pricey place but worth the splurge. You will enjoy it.

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.
