Food was good, however very overpriced. The Cowboy ribeye wasn't as tender as I have had at other restaurants or even when cooked at home. All in all, we probably will come back, but may order another cut of meat.

From the moment we walked in the service was Fantastic. We have been to a number of Steak Houses in the desert and this will now be our first choice . Our server Courtney was excellent and made sure we were happy and taken care of.

Food was very good. Steak may have been slightly under the medium rare I asked for but not a big deal at all. Very friendly staff took good care of us.

Sullivan’s exceeded our expectations. The staff was all incredibly friendly, the ambiance was delightful, and when one of the meals didn’t come out perfectly, management went all out to make it right. Would definitely recommend Sullivan’s to friends and family for great food, service and atmosphere.

my steak was too raw after I ordered medium rare. After I sent back it was burnt on the outside. I ate it but not the best or the best cut of meat either

Amazing customer service! We were visiting from out of town. We went to Sullivan’s for a birthday celebration. They gave us a handwritten birthday card which was very nice! The food was cooked to perfection and the dessert was good as well.

Open Table reservations can go in different directions. Sometimes the restaurant treats you as a valued guest by giving you a warm welcome and a great tablet. Unfortunately our visit to Sullivan s went the other way starting with an awful table and then moving us to one located near the noisy grill. Not a wonderful start. My wife and I enjoy dinner conversation but this was limited due to the ambient sound level.
We ordered steaks which were perfectly grilled and excellent. Exactly what we expected from a fine dining steakhouse! Service was good but not special and a minor hitch which was quickly rectified.
So a great meal but not a great experience so mixed feelings about rating Sullivan s.
We would consider returning midweek perhaps assuming they are less crowded however there are several other prime steakhouses in the Palm Desert area to choose from so we’ll see.

Overall was good, but had to send our steak back because it was not cooked properly and the brussel sprouts were burnt. They fixed both items but neither should have been served to begin with. The restaurant was nearly empty and it took forever for our food to arrive and then unfortunately had to be sent back. I will say our waitress was very pleasant and attentive. And the banana foster dessert was amazing!

We had not been to Sullivan’s for some time. We were pleasantly surprised - the food was excellent! It was a great evening - don’t let the raucous noise coming from the bar area deter you. Once inside the main restaurant, it was quiet and very delightful!

Susie was our server and she was the best. We also enjoyed conversating with one of the GM's, Shannon. The service is great. We were celebrating our 32nd Wedding Anniversary and Sullivan's made us feel great. Everyone of their people dropped by to wish us Happy Anniversary. They took our picture and all of their employees signed the frame. Best place in the Desert for Dinner. We will definitely be back.

this was our first time in the restaurant at sullivans-we have spent many happy hours in the bar (before the menu change 🙁) and decided to give it a try. the food was fabulous. the steak was so lean and the scallops were fresh. we will be back. we will try the happy hour again too as we hear there are some changes happening.

This was a disappointing experience.
Service was okay but the waiter was "phoning it in."
Food gets a mixed review. Steaks were good. Fish dishes, especially the salmon was bland and had a fishy taste.
I was there for Palm Springs Restaurant Week and had a better experience then.

Celebrated my birthday there and had a wonderful time. Hubby picked the right place...
Rose petals on the table, Birthday Card and photo to remember the great occasion.
A little spacing between the cocktail, the opening of the wine and between courses would have
been great. Overall great marks...

Everything was delicious, the appetizers were awesome, salad and soup as well, the only reason I gave food 4 stars instead of 5 was the cheesecake was slightly dry, but the bread pudding made up for it, maybe I am too critical, this was our first time we will most definitely be back!

I ordered the strip steak 🥩 and it was the worst steak I’ve ever had in a restaurant. I’ve had better steaks at Sizzler for a fraction of the cost. I won’t be returning.

Kayla was our Server and she and the entire staff made the dining experience great. The food was wonderful and service was attentive, but not hovering. It was a great way to celebrate our Anniversary. We will return to this restaurant soon.
