The service was very good. But the food was over rated. My steak arrived cold, like it had been pre-cooked. When I complained they did not replace the steak, but instead just heated it up. The oysters were good but the calamari was much too sweet. Will not be going back and would not recommend.

I never write reviews but wow food, service out table were all great! I have kids and wanted to be seated far away from guests to not disturb other patrons eating and they accommodated us at a great table. Our server was awesome! My 2 year old was being fussy and he brought him his favorite fruits blueberries and strawberries. He even let our son use his phone! Honestly best service experience ever. The waitresses, hostesses were all so sweet to our older son too! One even took him out to dance in the bar area. Never encountered such stellar service especially with kids! I love this place and will definitely come back again and again. Food is always on point too! So good! Thank you Sullivan’s !

We took our daughter and her boyfriend to dinner at Sullivan’s Steakhouse for her birthday. We were on vacation in Palm Coast and it was our first time at a Sullivan’s Steakhouse. We are now big fans! The staff was lovely...very warm and friendly. They sprinkled rose petals on our table, offered a delicious birthday crepe brûlée, and gave her a great card memento with a picture of our table! We all had filet mignon from the price fixe menu and it couldn’t have been better. We wish there was a Sullivan’s Steakhouse near where we live, and highly recommend it when in Palm Coast!

This dining experience was not indicative of Sullivan's high-level quality and if this had been my first experience, I'd never go back. I will go back because the steaks are fabulous - when you get one cooked properly when it's first served. Shannon, the manager, was very gracious and apologic, but if I were her, I'd fire the chef.

Most of us got the pre fix menu. All our plates & all our food was COLD or like warm. It was terrible, nothing was hot. It’s a shame because I coordinate about 4-8 couples every New Years to come to palm desert. I schedule all our golf & dinner plans. We always come to Sullivan’s it’s one of my favorite restaurants in PD. We’ve never had issues in the past. I feel they should have taken all meals back to redo but they only comped our corkage fees. No sure any of ya will go back

Sullivan's Steak House is FABULOUS. This was our family's first dining out for Christmas experience and it was wonderful. The service from our waiter in chief Martin is unsurpassed. Waiter of the year for us! There was 12 of us and he became part of our festive experience. And then there is the food - not one person was disappointed. Again, FABULOUS. Thank you to all the serving staff and especially our extra attentive and kind waiter. Highly recommend a dining experience at this restaurant.

We have eaten at Sullivan's many times and always love it. This time the food and service were excellent, but even though we had a reservation, we had to wait over 30 minutes for our table, and the waiting room had at least 25 people crammed into a room approx. 10x10. It was terrible. There is only room for 3 to sit and the rest stood for all that time. The management has to change their philosophy of letting people "camp" at tables for a long time after they are finished if others are waiting.

My husband, son and I went to Sullivan's for Christmas Eve dinner. Son and I shared a filet and lobster tail. I ordered bearnaise and had to ask for it again when food was delivered. Our filet and lobster was very good and cooked correctly. Lobster bisque was good but should have been a little thicker. Husband order the "special" that included appetizer, entree and dessert. He chose the NY strip and it wasn't to his liking....grisly. Exactly why I don't order NY strips. Overall good experience and good food but avoid the "special" because it isn't so special.

I have been a faithful customer of Sullivan's for 18 years and have always given excellent reviews. I must say, I was very disappointed on my last visit. The restaurant was over booked on the night we visited and waited a while for a table even with a reservation. We were not seated in the area I asked for in the reservation but seated at the worst table in the house. Martini's were extremely dirty. Steak was raw and was sent back. Still raw when it was brought back. It was obvious that the staff was stressed because it was so busy.

Good French Onion soup, horrible lobster bisque, mediocre bread. Good crab, good salmon. Waiter brought our entrees and the said they had overcooked our au gratin potatoes and it would be an additional 15 minutes. We ordered an alternative, the baked potato, and it was salty and cold. The key lime pie was almost tasteless, although the Graham cracker crust was excellent. Overall, very disappointing.

The Chef completely forgot how to cook a medium rare fillet. This is the third time this happens. The manager remembered us from the last time we sent back our steaks for being over cooked and she tried her best.. The bartender’s attention (Danny) was as always amazing, but if you visit this restaurant for the food dont go unless you like your steaks welldone .
