    This is a perfect spot for a birthday celebration. Everything was perfect. Dave our server was friendly, helpful with choices and made the birthday girl feel very special. Steaks were tasty, portions good and just a really great birthday celebration. We must admit thought we plan on returning for dinner when it is not for a special day as well.

    Sullivan has a nice bar area and both the drinks and bar food are good. However, the steaks are just moderately good and that is because I am comparing the quality, serving temperature and taste to 555 Steakhouse at Long Beach and CUT at Beverly Wilshire which are my gold standards. The service was reasonably good even though they seemed short handed. Sullivan at Palm Desert has two nearby competitors, Mastro's Steakhouse and Eddie V’s both of which I would say have better quality steaks. My recommended order would be Eddie V’s, Mastro’s and then Sullivan.

    The prime New York steak was not very tasty, and not easy to chew. I have had the chicken before and it was very good. Not so much last night. Mashed potatoes were the best thing we ate. Server, Ryan, was great. Thank you Ryan!

    Good was just OK. Steaks were cooked well but lacked the flavor you get at top steakhouses. Service was very slow and the restaurant was a quarter full. Apt of other top end steakhouses to choose from in the future.

    The staff were outstanding! Beef Wellington appetizer was scrumptious and cocktails spot on. Our steak was undercooked and the crab Oscar topping on my steak was cold. And my baked potato was cold - would not even melt the butter and cheese. This main course experience is not expected when paying such high and a la Carte prices for fine dining.

    We’ve been here for 20 years or more. We always make a point to come here for their steaks. Service used to be top notch here, but it went south recently. The server was not very knowledgeable. The food were subpar, the only saving grace for this place was the steaks were still excellent. I didn’t want to believe all those bad reviews on Yelp, because this was one of our beloved place in the desert, but after this trip we can see the complainants were valid. I hope management work on these complaints and correct them. I hate to see such a great place to be gone.

    Reception at arrival was poor. Not a “welcome to Sullivan’s” or even a smile. We had a reservation and the short wait was acceptable but the (downgraded) maitre needs training in hospitality. The first table offered was not acceptable; a very small table in a noisy area in the traffic pattern of all the servers. We turned it down and pointed to another empty table and we got that. Why wasn’t that table offered first? Waiter was friendly but must have had too many tables because it was hard to find him and get his attention. Steak was good but missing the peppercorn sauce wasn’t delivered; garlic mashed potatoes were barely lukewarm. Waiter compensated with a free dessert. Overall, a disappointing dinner, especially because of our previous excellent experiences. The last time we were there it had been delightful and we expected a similar visit. It was not to be.

    Horrible experience. We had a reservation at 7pm and weren’t sat until 7:15 while other parties were being sat. We were not offered bread or complimentary dishes like other parties were until we made an initial complaint. We ordered salmon with asparagus and did not get asparagus. We ordered broccoli as a side dish and it was literally a steamed head of broccoli and no attempt to even have a nice presentation. I decided to take my father out for Father’s Day for a nice and expensive dinner but this was honestly just a waste. The food was mediocre. The service was meh. The prices were exorbitant. To be completely honest, I’ve had better food and prettier presentation at Outback Steakhouse than yours. Such a shame. I’m not sure how Sullivan works and how you cater to your guests, but as a Latino guest observing how you treated us vs. your white guests is concerning and frankly grotesque.

    This was the eve of Father’s Day so the restaurant was naturally very busy, very noisy, and with more kids then I would prefer. The food was good but we have been to this restaurant the number of times and it has been better in the past. However still gave her a rating of four stars and will definitely be back.

    My girlfriend and I, decided to try Sullivan’s for our first time. I have to say that we were not impressed at all. We ordered the Wagyu steak. I asked for it medium but when our order arrived, it was cooked medium rare. We sent it back and they ended up scorching it making it worse. In addition, we ordered the potatoes au gratin. The potatoes were undercooked. I informed the waiter and he brought us out a new order. Second one was the same, undercooked. Decided to just swap it out for the mac and cheese. They were ok, I’ve had better. Overall, I don’t see this as a premium steak house at all. The food is mediocre and nothing fantastic. They’re better steakhouses in the desert and I would skip this one for sure!

    Went for our 21st Anniversary. Service was excellent. The Ribeye I had was one of the best I have ever had. Charred and very flavorful. Only thing different was Sullivan's had stopped taking pictures of couples for their Anniversary. We have kept one for the past several years with the exception of 2020 as you opened after that. I think these little bonuses kept patrons returning especially on their special days. Other than that, we will still be coming back. Thanks again.

    The food was excellent, the attention was horrible. Our server Sara was not on top of things at all. We felt completely neglected. When we first sat down we were offered menus but not a drink menu, we waited to flag down a server but a very attentive bus boy saw us waving and came to assist us. We had to ask our server to remove dishes and clear the table. I did not find it hygienic that her nails were as long as butcher knives, to me as a patron that is disgusting. We dined here as it was recommended by a family friend that lives here locally and we came to celebrate my husband's birthday. It was not much of a celebration when you're constantly flagging down staff to get straws, water changed, and dishes cleared. I felt like I was asking my teenage son to do the bare minimum of picking up after himself. I understand the service industry has taken a hit but service should be top notch at an establishment such as this, I would expect service like this at an Applebee's and find it quite appalling.

    The service was very good. However, there was a major problem with how my steak was cooked. We had a party of 6 and everyone's food turned out well except for mine and my friends. We both ordered the Cowboy Ribeye cooked medium. Mine was barely rare and my friends was purple and raw in the center. It is a thick cut of meat but I'd rather it were over cooked than raw. The appetizers and sides were good. I highly recommend the calamari.
