For the cost of the ribeye you would expect a prime cut. This cut had no marbling at all. Service and overall ambience was great.

We went for our 5 year wedding anniversary and they had the table decorated for us with rose petals and a card. Which was nice. But it took the waiter almost 20 min just to come to the table the first time. He was very knowledgeable about menu items. He recommended The Knockout Martini (which was amazing). He spaced our food out very well, instead of items coming up right after each other which was great. They even gave us a complimentary dessert for our special occasion. All the food was delicious and flavorful. Definitely returning again.

Our waiter was excellent. The chef cooked my steak incorrectly, but fixed the problem. Unfortunately, the person with me was finished eating by the time I received my steak. Very noisy, but we sat next to the kitchen. Might not be as bad in other parts of the restaurant. Food was very good, but pricey. Between us we tried the filet mignon, shrimp cocktail, french onion soup, wedge salad, garlic mashed potatoes and asparagus. And a bottle of wine. All were really good.

I didn't like that I wasn't seated until my husband came in from parking the car. I was checked in, with no explanation for the wait, but as soon as my husband came in we were seated. Better restaurants would have been letting me sit, possibly have a drink, while I waited those 5 minutes for him to arrive - or at least would have explained their policy about not being seated until entire party had arrived.

Always great food and service at Sullivan's. The wait staff is so fast, thorough, and very attentive. It was our Anniversary and they had a card waiting at the table. We had a very nice booth as well. Then they provided a complementary dessert. Loved our server Robby. Truly just one of the best places for service/food/ambiance combination in Naperville. And I'm sort of picky having lived and dined in major cities (Chicago and Boston) for 20 years of my life. This place has never disappointed!!

Not the best service. They did the thing where the entrees come out and they didn't clear off the appetizer plates. Then you feel like there's nowhere to put anything.

Service is outstanding.
The ambiance is a little outdated. Quite frankly I would rather dine in the bar area especially when they have live music.
Chairs are very comfortable.
Restrooms were a disaster and completely unacceptable.
Several menu options no longer available- disappointing- menu needs reprint.
Appetizers are outstanding.
Soup is noteworthy.
Salads are a pass.
Steaks were slightly under cooked but acceptable for those who would not like it cooked more than requested. Otherwise they were perfect- delicious. Although, I prefer a thick steak.
I would like to see T-bone and porterhouse steaks added to menu.
Specialty Drinks are simply awesome.
Deserts were impressive.
Value: with just one specialty drink the bill will likely to be $100+ per person plus tax and tip.

The experience was wonderful. We got to our reservation on time and were seated right away. When my boyfriend and I got to our table there were rose petals and a card that said happy anniversary! Our waitress was very kind and helpful and the food was so delicious, well worth the price! I definitely would recommend this place and I hope to go back again!

I believe the dress code for this type restaurant should be enforced. Ripped jeans , shorts and flip flops are not what I consider proper for the prices I’m paying for dinner. That type dress is for mc Donald’s

The staff was incredibly kind to us. They had a table wonderful table laid out for us with rose petals and a card. My partner and I were unbelievably satisfied with our dining experience here. Everything from the waiter staff to the manager who came out to the table to congratulate us was spectacular. We are happy to be regular customers here and come back to relive this wonderful experience. Pro tip: try the authentic key lime pie

Sullivan's is one of our go to places for special events. We really enjoy how they make our experience special. We were not rushed during our entire meal and the food was excellent. We celebrated our 32nd wedding anniversary and they set the table with a card, petals and later a special dessert. They even took our picture to take home to remember the event. Thanks to the staff at Sullivan's, you made our anniversary very special. Cindy and Tony Passarelli

While the food was very good and our server was excellent, the overall experience was not great. The problem appears to be with management and their policies on how the restaurant is run. First, the restaurant was not crowded for a late lunch on Sunday. However, they decided to seat all of the tables right next to one another and right next to the kitchen. There was so much noise from banging in the kitchen, it was difficult to have a conversation. Then, people on the kitchen side of the partition had a loud conversation right next to the partition. They might as well joined us for lunch. This is not the first time I have experienced this at this restaurant. Second, they do not want to give you the wine list when you sit down. Instead, you are to wait for your server to bring it. Like many places, they appear short staffed. Totally get that. But, why have folks wait to get the menu, and then wait again until the server can come back by to take your order. So, this restaurant gives the overall impression that their convenience and comfort are more important than the customer. It is a shame, as it could be a really good restaurant with just a few adjustments. Per usual, we will give them another try in 6 months or so, but with so many great options in Naperville, I just cannot recommend this restaurant.

I expected a lot . Only hit the requested temperature on 1 of four steaks. Taste was good. Just the cook was poor. 2 were way under and 1 was over. It’s a Saturday night at a steakhouse should get your temps right. Not in the same league as Gibsons.
