    Our experience was amazing. Our waitress was Sarah Michael ….. and she was one of the best servers I’ve ever had. Her suggestions were spot on. We took my mother there for her 82nd birthday and she said it was her Best Birthday EVER !!! The portions were huge, so we left with enough to have a second meal. I can’t wait to go back ….. maybe I’ll have room for dessert!

    You can't go wrong with Sullivan's. A classy place you can dress up to go out and enjoy a wonderful meal. Everything was excellent as usual--the steak, seafood, sides, and drinks that we had this time. A wonderful restaurant for Raleigh to have. Highly recommend.

    The calamari was extremely rubbery and the lobster topped mashed potatoes were lacking in flavor. The service was good, but the food wasn’t worth it.

    Anniversary dinner and they setup the table very nicely for the special occasion. Food was mid for the price. Service was great and the waiter was very nice and responsive until the bill. The itemized bill didn’t match the final charge receipt. The math was wrong and when I pointed it out they were concerned and I was supposed to receive a call as we needed to leave. No call.

    Sullivan's Steakhouse appears to be experiencing a decline from its former glory. While the ambiance and service remain as expected, the quality of the food has noticeably diminished, ranging from average to poor. Given the increasing prices, one would expect the steak to be of higher caliber, yet it often turns out tough and lacking in quality. Additionally, the presence of inedible pieces of steak on the plate detracts significantly from the overall dining experience.

    It was our daughter's 16 birthday, which was acknowledged immediately, and she liked that. The restaurant was dead, and we were served at a table that felt very much in the way and an after thought. Right away, we had water service, and after 30 minutes, a server came over. After another 18 minutes, our appetizers came from another server, and we explained we didn't even have our drinks. Our drinks came minutes later, and we were still stuck with the enormous-sized menus while trying to navigate appetizers on a table for five. Long story short, service was poor; for a restaurant charging these high prices, the service and atmosphere didn't suit the bill- over $600. We won't be back.

    They messed up our order and we all had to eat at different times as they had to remake the right steaks. They brought 2 out of 3 steaks that we did not order. Not even close. They did spend most off the night apologizing and crediting us some deserts. These type of mistakes are not acceptable in a place as expensive. The steaks were exceptional when we got the right ones, but it basically ruined a special night with my wife and daughter as she was home for spring break.

    Food was excellent, as usual. They had so many tables packed in the restaurant, the waitstaff couldn't get around the table, and the people on both sides of us kept bumping into our chairs since they were so close together. Our round table was right at the entrance of the restaurant, and so we had to move 3 chairs to be side by side, and the other across from them since the waitstaff and other customers kept bumping into us as they walked by. As long-time customers of Sullivan's, we'll go back, but if it had been our first time there, we wouldn't go back. Seems like Sullivan's is sacrificing good service and ambiance to shove more tables in. Not the upscale establishment it used to be.

    I believe we had a new waitress. She kept having to leave to ask questions and then come back. We were also celebrating a 60th birthday and in the past they always seem to make that an extra little special Also 5 put of the 9 of us had not been to Sullivans before and were not aware of the menu and had a lot of questions.

    My boyfriend and I had an amazing experience. The food was great and our waitress was amazing. She continuously checked on us and made sure we were satisfied with the food and drinks. Jennifer was so humble and down to earth and people with her enthusiasm are hard to find. The drink she recommended to my boyfriend was great ! It was his first time there and she made the experience incredible.

    Be careful with the fixed price menu. The waiter will suggest items that are not included at the fixed price, but you won't find that out until later.

    What a major disappointment. We had purchased some discounted Sullivan gift cards at Costco and were waiting for a special occasion to use them. We decided to use them for my birthday. We made the reservation and arrived at our appointed time. The décor is very masculine and the waiters were mostly men. The restaurant was less than 25% full. We sat at our table for over 15 minutes before our waiter arrived. He asked what kind of water we wanted and continued to explain the menu. We ordered some plain water and a glass of the house wine ($20 a glass). Sullivan’s is a $$$$ restaurant, but their website has a fixed price option. The fixed price menu was not included with the menu provided to us so we asked for it. It was printed out on plain white paper and cut to fit the items offered. (Note, this is about 30 minutes into our reservation and still no water or wine.) We placed our order and again asked about our water and wine. We finely were served our water and wine and noticed the tables around us were served bread. We had to ask for our bread. When we got our order, the steaks were mixed up and my medium rare turned out to be a medium well. The waiter was there when I checked the steak and offered to have another one prepared. At this point we only wanted to finish and go home. I was given a second steak which I appreciated and took home. We had heard great things about Sullivan’s but were very disappointed.

    We had another great Anniversary dinner at a Sullivans. Could only score a 4:30pm reservation for a a Saturday night and it was just as busy as if we had dined at 7:00pm. Excellent server and service. Food came at a reasonable pace. We had oysters on the half shell, smoked pork belly(delightful presentation), salad, lobster bisque, ribeye, crab stuffed shrimp, lobster potatoes, Brussels sprouts, a cheesecake slice for our anniversary and we ordered the bananas foster bread pudding as well. All but the oysters were fantastic. They could use a different variety with the oysters, they were a bit anorexic, hardly any meat. When eating on the half shell, they should be nice and plump. Either way, I still enjoyed my essence of oyster.
