Our server was nice but I wish she explained the menu better especially since we had informed her it was both our first time dining there. We had finished our salads before our drinks from the bar even arrived and the table beside us sat down 15 minutes after us and got their beverages before us. I got the New York strip which was a little dry around the edges but the center was medium rare. My boyfriend got the filet and that was cooked perfectly. Mushrooms were really good as a side too along with the lobster mashed potatoes. Not a fan of the lobster Mac and cheese.

We were disappointed with our food, table location and over all experience. The restaurant was very noisy and crowded. It may be a good spot for a business dinner but not for couples or groups of friends. There are better restaurants in Raleigh for this kind of meal at lower cost so would not recommend Sullivan's and will not return.

Very quiet initially with excellent service. We ordered salad for appetizer and the “signature” made at the table wasn’t special as server jump dumped everything together despite trying to have him decrease salad dressing and wanted no tomato on my half. Steak was excellent and side dishes good, but overly salty. Dessert was awesome- Chocolate meltdown. Coffee- for $3.50 expect French Press not tiny single “warm cup”.

It would be nice to not have a table next to the kitchen entry area - the noise level was elevated due to that. Also, it was Valentine’s Day, so it was a price fixed menu. Would have been nice to also offer the regular menu.

Had a great time on our first visit to Sullivan’s. It was a wonderful place to go for Valentine’s Day. The food was great and our waiter was very personable but not too talkative. Would definitely recommend this place to folks wanting to celebrate any occasion.

The NY Strip was well below Sullivans standards. It was thin, tough and overcooked. Had I not been with clients, I would have sent it back.

Service started out fine and then we had a fairly long wait on our entrée. I believe it was extra busy due to the Valentine's Day special that was going on (which we did not choose but looked good). Bread and wedge salad were excellent. Caesar was a bit strange as it was 'deconstructed' with a long cracker to break up for croutons. Taste was excellent though. Steaks were top notch and perfectly cooked. Sides were good, not amazing, but we could have made better choices, I believe. Desserts were definitely worth the trip. As for ambience, the tables were a little close.

4 appetizers all arrived at different times many minutes apart, not organized. Dry age ribeye was only fair and not as flavorful or tender as should be. Does not compare to Fleming's or Capital.

Our waiter tried to upsell a Valentine's promotional dinner, when we requested a limited time special promotional dinner menu called "the sure thing" which was cheaper. He said both promotions aren't running at the same time. Another guest told us they ordered the sure thing special dinner. We talked to the waiter to request again since I received the email which promoted "the sure thing"during this time and another two guests ordered it. The waiter went to talk to his manager and apologetically offered the menu we wanted.

I thought that the guys parking the cars before and afterwards did a very good job and made everyone feel special. I thought the hostess acted as if she was too busy to do her job. Our waiter was very good. The appetizer and steak was good. The mash potatoes were cold, sent back, came back cold again, never mind. The iceberg wedge was nothing special and in fact disappointing for being at a upscale steak house. The sides were limited and two things that we asked for the waiter said, yeah they took them off the menu but if you would have given us 24 hours notice, maybe we could have gotten it for you. Huh?
The atmosphere was good. Over all a B-. Disappointing since we've had great meals and service before. This time the price was out of line to overall food and serve.

Something has seriously changed at Sullivan’s. We’ve been going there for years and it was always excellent. New management perhaps? The menu has changed and not for the better. The service was terrible at a place previously known for great service. The evening was a constant stream of mistakes by the staff that they kept trying to down play. From the hostess to the servers it was a mess and no one seemed to care at all. It’s a shame. This used to be a great spot.

Love Sullivan's. Came for my wife's birthday. She had the salmon and loved it. I had a filet and it was perfect. The sides are great. The dessert was even better. Super attentive staff. The only issue, and it's not a big one, is there's a lot of activity in the restaurant. Staff quickly moving around, clearing tables, etc., but it makes for good people watching.

Great food, service was outstanding! The manager went above and beyond to solve a parking problem when we were leaving the restaurant. You absolutely cannot go wrong going to Sullivan's. For a special occasion (an anniversary in our case) the extras they provide are wonderful, such as a framed photo and rose petals on the table. This place is great for any occasion whether it is a celebration, date night, business dinner, or any reason.
