I made a 745 pm reservation on a Friday evening and wasn’t sat til almost 830, It was so far behind there was actual limited space to stand with everyone waiting for their tables as well. The waiter was phenomenal, walked me thru the menu and even gave great recommendations across the board. The food, was honestly a disappointment. Started with the Philly cheesesteak rolls, sooo good so i was so ready for dinner. Order 2 cowboy cut rib-eyes, no flavor. Like not even salt It was just a bland steak. Also got three sides, mushrooms which were extremely salty, a baked potato which was average and Mac n cheese which tasted like mesquite barbecue, It was very odd. For dessert, crème brûlée, which tastes good.... but that night both my date and I got sick. I’ve been to so many steak houses all over the city and Oakbrook... thought I’d give naperville a try.... won’t repeat not for a $200+ night.

Always love our dinners at Sullivan’s. Our server Todd was very courteous, attentive and knowledgeable. It was very busy so we were pleased to have received such great service. The manager (Michael, I believe) was also attentive and came around to ensure that our experience was great! I like that you can have your choice of the live music in the bar, or the quiet dining in the dining area. The signature “Knockout” drink is fantastic and the cheesesteak egg roll appetizer is so good, we could them all night! Our dinners (filet and Salmon) were cooked perfectly and dessert was a perfect topping to the evening. Thanks again Sullivan’s for a great date night with my wife!

Hostess staff were somewhat stuck up. They come across as rude. (All except the taller blonde girl who seated us.) One girl had on a dress, which was very low cut in the front and had a bright red lace bra under it, sticking out a few inches. I understand the idea of the black outfits, it can be very classy. But the red bra, and the fishnet looking stockings under some girls skirts, not appealing. Noise level is higher, we didn’t really mind, but that might steer some away. Waiter was good, until it was dessert and pay the bill time. We sat and waited for awhile to get the bill, then again to get the change.
Manager (I assume), a bigger guy in a suit, came and made sure our meal was satisfactory. This is standard, but he was friendly. We would probably return.
The food gets the highest review! The salad, bread, steak and pie were great!! Husbands baked potato was barely luke warm, but tasted ok.

Always on our list as a Naperville favorite. Never disappoints. Excellent steaks prepared by professional chefs. Wonderful selection of wines and tasty cocktails. The service was Five-Star as expected.

The food was not fresh, the steak was charred, the asparagus was over grilled and burnt, and ironically, the bread pudding was cold in the middle...overall a very disappointing experience.

Sullivan's Steakhouse is a fantastic restaurant. Even though it can and most likely will be pricey, it is very much worth what you'll pay. I started with the french onion soup as an appetizer and for dinner I ordered the seared Ahi tuna dinner with a side market fresh greens salad. Every aspect was phenomenal. My boyfriend ordered the lobster shrimp bisque to start and for his entree ordered the ribeye with asparagus. Again, not a negative thing was to be said about his meal. We both ordered a glass of wine with dinner as well. For dessert we opted for the Chocolate Madness and it was indescribably good. We also decided on a cocktail with dessert. I ordered the hibiscus cosmopolitan and he chose The Ice & The Rye, both were extremely well crafted. We had a $100 gift certificate for this evening and even with that we still ended up spending a portion of our own money for the evening, though neither of us complained as we were very well fed and happy with the service. My biggest recommendation is to ask for TJ as your server if he is available, very attentive and friendly.

We were a party of four on New Years Eve. I was disappointed in my Filet Mignon. At $75.00 per person, it was way overpriced for what we got. It was too cold for any of us to enjoy ourselves. Won’t be back!

We had an early reservation this New Year's Eve and were seated promptly. The special menu for the evening was perfect...all the best on Sullivan's regular menu. The Chef was willing to prepare a dozen Oyster Rockfellar for us and they were outstanding. Perfectly cooked with just the right amount of browning on their topping. Our servers were festive and across the entire restaurant you could see smiles upon smiles as they waited on their customers. Room was nicely laid out with comfortable spacing between tables that allowed intimate discussion and the right amount of privacy. Our steaks were perfectly prepared. The new manager was so attentive to our table and to all tables around the restaurant. You could truly feel how important customer experience meant to him. Wonderful evening!!! Thanks Sullivans!!!

The steaks (for which they claim fame) were indeed great! We were there on New Year's Eve, so the menu was limited but robust enough for any gourmet. The only caveat would be the dessert choices did not include their key lime pie. The service was very good considering the crowd and the day, although it did get progressively louder as the evening wore on. As might be expected, it was not inexpensive, but was worth every penny to us. If you want steak in Naperville, it is the place to go.

My boyfriend and I sat at the bar for dinner and some drinks on a busy Saturday night. A+ service by bartender, Mike. Food was excellent. Seafood was amazing, oysters and crab legs were so delicious. The bone in ribeye was excellent too. Atmosphere combined with great food made for a great date night. Unfortunately we were on a tight schedule or we would have stayed longer! Thanks Sullivan's!

4eliable for martinis, steak and wedge salad. Good options for wine. Can be a challenge for parking unless you can use valet Check hours on valet and dining since not usually open for lunch anymore. Bar a little too sports bar with so many TVs plus often loud live music in a small space. Still a favorite.

We attended for a special occasion- our son’s 13th Birthday (party of 10). We arrived at 8pm and ordered relatively quickly... We were very disappointed by the amount of time it took for our food to arrive-9:22pm; IT SHOULD NEVER TAKE AN HOUR! Two of our children fell asleep at the table waiting for their food. We definitely will not return with a large party ever again.
