When we made the reservation on 11-09-18, the restaurant was still in business. A day before our reservation on 12/23, we googled the location to be met with this location is permenately closed effective 11/12/18. We are more disappointed in Open Table for not recognization this and informing us of this changes. There are other Sullivan locations in IL that we called to confirm that the Lincolnshire restaurant is in fact CLOSED permenately. Please remove that location from your website.

One week before Thanksgiving, the owners decided to close the restaurant. I lost my reservations and had to find a new place to feed my extended family. Nice planing guys.

The food and service were both outstanding. Everyone friendly and accommodating. I think we found our new steakhouse without needing to go downtown. The only thing we missed on, having arrived just as they were opening, we were too early to experience the energy of a packed house. We will definitely go back to Sullivan's. Next time AFTER the theatre.

Kevin waiter terrible we wait d 20 min after soup to get dinner the steaks were over done for the ny steaks. First bite good but after that it was overdone the filet minion done correct. After we hate we sat another 20 min they took my sister coffee away and we waited no one came back with our desert or coffee. Then when we finally got our dessert no coffee. We had to ask could we get coffee we finished our dessert still no coffee and had to f8nd the water he said they were making some even though other customers were getting coffee to,d he m to give bill I mean really we were there from 5 to 7:40 for 4 people it was ridiculous then they over charged and lied on the bill and tri d to scam us. Kevin waiter at Lincolnshire then admitted to scamming he tried to keep the cash as a tip. We paid cash and credit card

Very unethical will never go there again to top it off my sister became violently ill the rest of the night because of the food... ridiculous

I’ve dined at this and other Sullivan’s locations many times for work and personal dinners within the last few years. The food is always outstanding, and the service usually is too. Last night was an exception - the food was still great, though the Philly cheesesteak egg rolls had too much sauce this time. The service, while competent, was cold and unengaging and such a far cry from past experiences. The bread was placed on the table in front of us without a word from the mystery bread man who we never saw again. The waitress did not introduce herself, ask us anything besides what we wanted, or offer us any insight about the menu or anything else. She also frequently walked up to and looked at our corner table to see whether we needed anything but didn’t ask or say a word to us. I found this bizarre on a Saturday night, when I would expect the A team, in contrast to weeknight dinners I’ve had here where I felt like hugging the staff by the end of the meal.

Also, and this is admittedly the kind of thing that bothers me but not most people, there was a band playing in the bar as well as music being piped in overhead. Being able to hear both at the same time drove me crazy until the band finally stopped.

The food was just okay. For a high end restaurant I expected more, at least a Bday dessert or ice cream for someone Bday. Coffee was served room temperature, not warm or hot. However their wine dinners are spectacular, and a great value. That is what made us come back.

I requested a table not by a busing station in the main dining room. We arrived about 20 minutes early and were told that we would be seated at the reservation time. When that time came and passed I inquired about our table and was told that they were waiting for our table to open up. Twenty minutes after our reservation time were taken. As we walked through the restaurant more than half the tables were empty and then they tried to seat us next to the busing station. When we said that we didn’t want to sit there we were seated in another room which was apparently not the waitress’ because we had to ask other employees to find our waitress throughout the evening. My daughter-in-law’s fish was undercooked and had to be sent back two times. They finally gave her a fresh piece. While the waitress was pleasant the overall experience was horrible.

Steaks are fantastic …. The sauce is the bomb - adds to the flavor explosion …. Service is a "Team" approach, so you will never be forgotten ….

First time visit. We enjoyed a cocktail at the bar before dinner. We were disappointed with the noise level. Not just because it was busy. But the acoustics were very poor. The food was a bit pricey, but excellent. The service was also very good.

After expecting a great dinner, we went there. We told them we had a play in two hours and they said no problem. Immediately our waiter came and asked for our drinks but wouldn't give us info on the menu. He said he'll be back to explain the menu. He came back and then went over the menu. He left again. He came back for our order and we gave him our order. He seemed unhappy once he realized we were only ordering one meal for us to share. He was unhappy all the time while serving us. When we received our steak and potato, the person said she couldn't leave the butter, sour cream, etc with us as she had to serve us. We said we only wanted butter and she slapped some butter down and left. Never asked if it was enough or anything - just left. I wouldn't suggest going to this place. Service staff wasn't nice.

Went here for dinner for my boyfriend's birthday on a Wednesday night. It was quiet and felt very private though in the main dining room. Our courses were brought out at just the right times.

I had ordered the salmon, but had a strip steak delivered. Out waitress immediately brought it to the cook's attention and the manager came out to apologize and find out what he could do for us. It was so well taken care of and I knew that truly these things just happen that I felt doing what they were already doing was enough. Plus, my replacement meal was in front of me within 10 minutes.

Wonderful service and they even gave a special birthday card and dessert note to my boyfriend. It was a lovely evening!
