It's very rare to have a restaurant that's consistent. Sullivan's is always on point with service and the quality of food. It's my wife and my favorite restaurant.

Superb meal! We got the cheesesteak egg rolls, sea scallops, bone in steak, au gratin potatoes, creamed spinach and bananas foster dessert. Everything was delicious. Also we indicated on OT that it was our anniversary and our table had rose petals, our dessert plate had “happy anniversary” written in caramel, and our picture was taken for a sweet card we got to keep. Top notch.

Really dissatisfied with the complete meal. I had dinner for 4 on 7/31 for a Birthday. Let's start with really poor service, very slow and distracted, questions never got answered about the menu. Normally at a high end restaurant you get very good service. Bar service was really slow even with a second around we got it during dessert. Next food quality was sad, I've gotten better at outback(sorry outback). Disappointing items crab cakes(better around the corner), mash potatoes (uncooked chunks), steaks(half fat),key lime pie(no flavor worse I've had), creme brulee(watery mess, someone doesn't know how to cook creme burlee). Probably the only few things with a positive highlight was the banana bread pudding, mushroom sauce and salmon. Sad for a $400+ meal this is not the place to go. I was really looking forward to this dinner, but in the end it was a waste of money.

We had a wonderful date night out even with bringing our three year olds son. We both had filets and they were delicious! Our server, JK, was extremely friendly and did a wonderful job honoring our special dietary requests.

It was my second trip there. The service and the food were both outstanding.
The noise level could have been less to create a better atmosphere. I will go again.

Great food and service but was interesting to see 2 different tables that had guest with baseball hats on. Such a high end restaurant for special occasions with such a relaxed dress code. I guess I’m old fashioned that way. Oh well!!

My table was close to the kitchen so the noise was louder than most however that would be my only complaint. Amazing waitress (nickname Carl I believe) who was spot on with suggestions. Food was great and the overall experience is worth the money spent. I’m probably going to be a frequent patron here!

Sullivan's has always had great food and service. However, the last few visits the service has been a good bit slower than usual. I asked about that and the server told me it is due to a shortage of cooks in the kitchen. They can't seem to recruit enough people.
The servers were great and the steak was outstanding. They just need to get the food delivered faster. It was quite a wait.

I ordered the stuffed shrimp with crabmeat, and the shrimp was overcooked (dry and hard) for 32 dollars for six overcooked shrimp. I guess they were understaffed in the kitchen.

Our daughter’s 12th birthday. So much food even on the prix fixe menu that we probably didn’t need to order any more appetizers. Thank you for taking a group picture to mark the occasion and for bringing out our daughter’s bread pudding with a candle in it and on a special Happy Birthday adorned plate.

They accommodated moving forward my reservation by 45 minutes which was a big help. We were seated next to the grill which was very noisy and the you could feel the springs in the cushion. Service was very good and the meal.

Steak was rare and ordered medium. Steak was sent back. And when returned the temp was correct but was too tough. Could not even chew. It was sent back and I didn’t order anything else. Came here a few times before and never had these types of issues. I will not be returning. We will continue to go to Flemings. Waiter talked way to much. Spent 10 minutes explaining menu even when we said it was unnecessary. Literally just wanted to order our appetizers and he insisted on explaining the menu and we have been there multiple times.

The wait staff and even the General Manager were apologetic, but a water line or air conditioning pipe was leaking in the ceiling, consequently, our dinner was on the edge of where a chunk of plaster was going to fall. We were finished with dinner before it fell, but it was annoying.
