Ruined birthday dinner would not recommend server left table unattended for hours/ food took two hours to come and was completely wrong. Other patrons were eating after seating after our party. It was a complete mess

The worst Sullivan's I've dined at. French onion soup came out luke warm and very bland, as did the brussel sprouts. Drinks were just ok and could use a bit more alcohol. Service was mediocre at best between the waitress forgetting our order several times, table wasn't cleaned and we weren't greeted for approximately ten minutes.

My wife and I were there to enjoy a nice night out and we couldn’t be more happy with our Sullivan’s experience. From our cocktails to our Strip steak, everything was fantastic. Then dessert comes out and it was the perfect ending to a great night of romantic dining.

We have friends who love Sullivan's, so maybe we just caught them on a bad night - and I know restaurants are struggling to keep good help - but, especially for the price, this was an unsatisfying experience overall. It started with our server bringing me the wrong drink then seeming really annoyed when I pointed it out and asked for the correct drink. He offered no apology, just grabbed the drink off the table and walked away. His attitude throughout the meal was generally inhospitable. The food was also disappointing. The asparagus was pale and overcooked and our filets were cooked inconsistently - the parts that were cooked medium-rare, as we'd requested, were very good. I mean, melt-in-your-mouth good. But parts were cooked medium-well. I'm really not sure how you cook a small filet to such different temperatures. Given that our friends think so highly of Sullivan's, we assume this is not the norm for service or food but we won't be rushing back anytime soon.

Restaurant was like a ghost town. Service extremely slow and cocktails took forever. Food was good but won’t be back. Overpriced.

Service was very poor. We had gone there several times in the past, the last time being about two years ago. Service terrible then as well. Server checked on our food after we had finished eating. We would have returned our over-cooked steaks if we could have found her but got tired of waiting. Desert took about twenty minutes after entree dishes cleared and coffee slow after that. Gave up on cream. Definitely last time we go here. Manager did check on once. Of course the only thing we had then was water, then he disappeared as well at least in our section

Sullivan’s is one of our favorite Leawood restaurants. Their menu has enough variety for all our family. The service is always consistently good.
Unfortunately the chocolate dessert my husband loves was not available New Year’s Eve but otherwise the food was fabulous!

When our waiter approached us initially with water, we asked how he was doing, and his response was “I’m here”. He went on to say how the evening would not be good because Sullivan’s had had so many cancellations. His attitude definitely set the tone for our evening, which was upsetting and was shaping his tip.

Love sitting in the library- great table!

Food was amazing as always!

This will be our 4th year in a row to come to Sullivan’s on Christmas Day. IF we choose Sullivan’s again next year, we will request another waiter.

Food is always good.

It was quiet early, but as more people came, the noise level rose a little, but still very pleasant.

We made our reservation on December 9. Our reservation was at 2:30, and we arrived promptly. Restaurant was not particularly busy at that time. We were seated at the booth closest to the kitchen entrance where all the food was coming out and dirty dishes going in. Servers we’ll polishing silverware just behind our son. We were also right next to the manager station. When we left the restaurant still was not too busy. We normally do not mention circumstances like these but it was Christmas. It seemed rather odd that that would be the only table that was available to us at that time. Other than that, is was good. If not for our server, Alex, the only entertainment would have been the servers going in and out of the kitchen. Is the normal procedure to set reservations through Open Table in the least desirable areas in a restaurant? I

Would be 5 starts but they were out of several menu items and wine selections by 6:30pm on Xmas eve and overcooked one of our steaks. Service was good although waitress forgot bread. Overall good ambience and we enjoyed our evening.

My family and I decided to have dinner together before Christmas festivities this weekend. It was our first time dining at Sullivan’s and it won’t be our last. I highly recommend it for any occasion. Mark ( I think that’s his name) our server was next to perfect.

My steak had to be sent back as it was a very bad cut and not cooked properly and my wife’s lamb was raw. The new steak was flash cooked and I felt not cooked as well as it should have been. My wife’s lamb came back perfectly. The staff did their best to make it right but I felt that the place has lost its special touch.

I made a reservation for our anniversary- we were thrust into some small booth - to small for my party. And the steaks were either over or under cooked. First time in two years to have an “average” experience.
I hope this is the a sign of things to pass in the future for this restaurant.
