Service has gone down hill since Del Fresco is not owners. We couldn’t find our waiter, he just disappeared into this air. We waited 30 minutes after our meal & had to ask 2 different people to get our dessert served. Not a great experience.

We had lunch for my husband’s birthday and the staff at Sullivan’s went above and beyond to make his day feel special— from handwritten notes, to a framed photo keepsake, and a nice dessert. Will definitely be back and consider Sullivan’s for all special occasions!

Sullivan’s is always a great experience! The Waygu steak was phenomenal. Of course, cheese steak egg rolls are a must!

Tough night. 10 minute delay between getting the steaks and getting the sides. Some items had to be asked for again. One of the steaks was ordered medium rare and came out medium well. Lobster tail was really bad (I ate what I could because we had already sent something back). Rare miss for Sullivan’s.

We have a very enjoyable celebration f our anniversary. The room was quiet so we were easily able to talk. The service was excellent too. The food, as usual, was just as great as we have had before! All in all, a very enjoyable time

Have been plenty of times, not the best experience this past trip. Server was very good, food was just okay. Filet and two rib eyes were overcooked, should have told them, but we didnt want to wait for new entrees to be prepared. Will still return in the future...

Great food, no doubt. I think the pricing is a little high. $17 for a slice of pie. Lunch for 3 was $190, so it’s on the high side.

We started French onion soup and an order of oysters Rockefeller, which were both perfectly executed. Three of us had the fish special: sea bass. It supposedly was served with peach salsa. We all concluded that perhaps we had a teaspoon of it over 3 2” long sprigs of greens. Rather pathetic. The fourth in our party had the rack of lamb. He ordered it medium rare and it came raw. He sent it back and it came out better the second time. For dessert, we split the Nutella crime brûlée. It was nice.

Pre-Father’s Day dinner. Overall, the service was solid. Sullivan’s is my “go to” place for family meals in the burbs because of the food quality and service.

There was a misunderstanding with one of the orders, so it had to be sent back. Of course, everyone wanted to wait so we could eat together, but the food would’ve gotten cold. I would’ve expected them to do more to rectify the situation, but nothing was done, which was also disappointing.

The only thing I didn’t like is that our table was right next to the kitchen. It kind of put a damper on the evening as it was extra noisy and smelly....the fish was rather unappetizing!!

Our steak was not cooked properly, however they did compensate us for that. It was a little surprising for a steak house to not cook steaks properly. A little overpriced, but the service was good.

We feel fortunate to live so close to Sullivan's Steakhouse. Whenever we go, the food and service are outstanding. My youngest is such a picky eater at home, but he always cleans his plate at Sullivan's.
The vibe is fun and encourages great conversation at the table. You can't go wrong with a meal here.

It was our 35th wedding anniversary so we wanted to celebrate with a great meal experience. I made reservations well in advance. We arrived and ended up waiting for our table (15 min). We got to the table and it was set up very nice with a happy anniversary note and rose petals spread out. (Nice touch)
Hard to describe where our booth was but right on the side was another level behind with open slider windows. The sliders were open making our booth less private than wanted. We could hear peoples conversations as though they were sitting at our table.
Maybe it was just us but in a nice restaurant we like as private an experience as possible.
So as we were sitting excited about our meal and trying to be patient after 10 minutes went by I flagged someone down and asked for a drink menu. She quickly dropped one off so my wife and I could pick out a cocktail to start the night.
Another 10 minutes go by and still no wait staff at our table. I saw the same nice lady that dropped off the menus and asked if she could help us. She looked around a bit and said of course. Took our order and returned saying a waiter has been assigned and will be right over. Someone else returned with our drinks and mine was the wrong drink.
10 more minutes go by before a young man arrives at our table to say he was our waiter and apologized as no one told him he had our table. I'm going to wrap it up here saying the food was very good. This was not how we envisioned a wonderful dinner out to celebrate such a milestone anniversary.
We will not be back, there are too many steak restaurants that can deliver a total wonderful experience.
If it wasn't such a big day for us maybe we would have been less upset that they sat us and forgot about us, but it was a big day.

Very disappointed,

The Sullivans
