Wonderful service and excellent food. The food is expensive; however, it’s worth the price. This is a great restaurant for birthdays or other special occasions.

Would not recommend. Totally overpriced. At 5:45 restaurant was empty yet we could not get a happy hour drink in restaurant. We were celebrating a birthday with dinner. We should have gotten up and gone in bar to get our drinks. No reason to penalize those wanting a full meal. Food was good but price is out of control. Server was very average. Hostess was very nice.

Sean provided excellent, efficient, fast, and friendly service. The Wagyu steak was all we expected it to be and the creamed spinach was excellent. I am looking for a good reason to return for another excellent dining experience.

We came to Sullivan's for our 24th Anniversary dinner and were not disappointed. The hostess was very nice and humorous. The Anniversary card, rose petals on the table and complimentary dessert were much appreciated. Our server was friendly and knowledgeable. Our food was excellent from the presentation to the taste to being done just right. I had the most perfectly cooked Chilean Seabass that I have ordered anywhere in a long time. My husband's Salmon dish topped with shrimp was very delicious as well. Loved the decor. It was a splendid evening overall.

I have held several customer dinners at Sullivan's-Leawood restaurant and the food, service and atmosphere has always been excellent. In fact, I will be back in Kansas City the week of April 1st and already have a reservation to dine with my customers at Sullivan's once again.

My family and I go to Sullivan's once a year and always have the best experience. Previous years we have had Jason as our server. He is now manager, but still came to our table to talk with us for awhile. Each year he remembers us and always makes us feel so welcomed. This past experience we had Justin as our server and he did an outstanding job as well. We love that the staff here is professional and fun. We will be back again!

Absolutely delicious. Server recommended a delicious wine by the glass. Best prime rib!!! Only complaint is that we were seated near the bar entrance and the live music really clashed with the piped in dining room music.
But overall one of our favorite spots!

Overall our dinner was very nice. Just a few glitches away from excellent. Service was not as thoughtful as we would have liked. For example, entrees were brought out and placed on the crowded table while we were still eating our salads.
Steaks were great but sides were hit or miss. Garlic mashed potatoes were fabulous, but the broccoli was served as a whole head, which we then had to awkwardly cut apart to get an individual serving. Weird presentation.

Our server was very attentive and he took care of our requests. My filet was very good and my wife's fish was very tasty. The biggest issue here is that everything costs extra. You get no salad and no sides with your steak or fish. Most everything is a la carte. A little too pricey compared to other steak houses.

23rd Anniversary Celebration! We had an awesome experience from the moment we arrived, our table was decorated with beautiful rose petals and a personalized hand written card wishing us happy anniversary. The food and service was over the top and they even took a picture of us, framed and deliver to our table. We will definitely be returning.

I might recommend happy hour at Sullivans, but would never go back for dinner. Food was just okay and price was outrageous! Server in the bar for Happy Hour was friendly. Server in the dining room was somewhat opinionated and condescending.

Our dining experience was quite excellent. We went very early, so there were few people except in the bar as it was All-day happy hour on a Thursday. It will now be our favorite restaurant for steak!! Everything we had was delicious! Including the scrumptious Bananas Foster Bread Pudding--Oh MY!! Iceberg salad very good, white cheddar/bacon au gratin potatoes very good, cheesecake good, I had the filet mignon and it was fantastic! We will be back soon--yes, it is slightly more expensive than some other steak restaurants, but worth every penny! Our server, Fred, was also excellent! I want to go again right now! :-) And wonderful as it is right near my house!!:-)
