Not many ventured out because of the weather but we celebrated a late Valentines Day and the food was fabulous. Loved the mashed potatoes with horseradish.

Visited on Valentines Day. Had the $65 three course mail. My Filet was amazing — medium rare perfection. Suggest you try your steak Oscar style. Sullivan’s is probably the best steak restaurant in KC.

Also had the Brussels sprouts and mushrooms. They were also really good.

Service was extremely slow even for Valentine's Day. Although we were seated at our reservation time, it took over 3 hours from sit down to payment. It took 30+ minutes for our drinks (other than water) another 30 minutes to place our order and then 45+ minutes from the time we requested our check until we were cashed out. Filet originally delivered was well done not medium rare as ordered. Also, we had asked for the half of my wife's steak not eaten to be boxed up to take home and it was not. They did however bring another steak to us to take home which was nice. For the cost of the restaurant the food was average and the service was poor.

A busy night but they were ready for it. Extra efforts it seems to make sure we were properly served. Three courses, one price. And the food was excellent. In particular, the key lime pie I had.

Valentines Day Dinner. We have eaten at Sullivan’s before and the food was great but the valentine menu was no so great. The extra for the seafood sampler appetizer was not worth it and the crab was not good nor was it served with any butter to dip the crab in. The steak was good and the salmon was just ok. The broccoli was served as a giant head of broccoli, under cooked to the point that it was hard to cut the florets off. They asked we wanted bread and we did but it never arrived. The dinner was definitely not worth the price.

Romantic Valentine's Day Celebration!! The food was fantastic!! Best steaks around. Desserts were delicious ... best bread pudding ever!!
Our favorite part, however, was the manager that walked around to check on everyone. He was clearly interested and engaged us in conversation many times. I feel bad that I don't remember his name because he deserves recognition for a job well done!! Kudos!!
One of our favorite "special" restaurants!!

I had salmon with asparagus. The salmon was not done as well as I asked it to be. The asparagus had no grill marks on it and tasted steamed. Pieces of it were hard. My husband had the filet mignon, and he said it was very good. He had the augratin potatoes. He said they were not very good. Our server was Henry. He was nice, polite, and efficient. The manager kept coming by and assisting us. Overall, service was great, but the food was just average.

The food was delicious. We had lobster and shrimp bisque, crab legs and filet. Everything was cooked to perfection. Our server was poor at best. Not friendly, not helpful, and not attentive. The manager spent more quality time with us than the waitress. The bananas foster was supposed to be hot with ice cream melting on top. it was as cold as the ice cream. Still very good but the waitress could not have checked as she said the plate was hot and it was cold. We will return as we have been there a few times and always had wonderful servers. The crab was supposed to be a pound and it was only a half pound but we were only charged for a half pound.

We generally enjoy Sullivan's very much, but were very disappointed in the service this time. Not sure if our server had too many tables to work or what happened, but we barely saw her. We didn't get bread until our meals arrived, we didn't get a drink we ordered, we waited a long time for the bill. We will try again in the future, as this wasn't typical of our experience there.

For the first time, we did not have good luck at Sullivan’s. The bread was actually cold in the middle and we asked for another loaf and never received it. It was a birthday celebration and unlike in the past, was never acknowledged. Mashed potatoes, spinach and asparagus were cold and we asked to reheat. The manager came by and we told him our issues and he didn’t offer to make it up to us in any way. Very expensive meal to have so many issues. Disappointed for the first time.

We have been to Sullivan's a few times. On this instance, we both ordered a steak. We both asked for steaks done medium. My husband's steak came out well done so he sent it back. The second plate came out and the food was cold. Third time everything was done well. I was done with my dinner well before my husband and had to wait for him to get his meal and eat. The manager checked on us many times and took care of his steak but it certainly wasn't the best night out we've had.
