Service was perfect, not too overbearing but was well taken care of. Music was a little loud. They were able to customize my order (got a half order of scallops as an app instead of dinner portion). The band in the bar on most nights is a lot of fun too.

The server would have been great had we been at Chili's. However, when I am at a fine dining establishment that touts itself as such, I expect to receive impeccable white tablecloth service. I shouldn't have to stare at my dinner while the server runs to go get silverware. Please don't stand behind me while you are taking my order, as I feel obligated to crane my neck around to actually face you to give you my order. Please come to the table prepared to take my order ie. bring a pen if you need to write it down. Please bring me my food and then go back to get another tables food. This isn't a diner. etc, etc, etc

We come here when we want to snuggle up on the same side of the booth and have a couple's night out. Our favorite spot for an adult-only dinner with a fantastic steak!

We were surprized to encounter lax service. Our server was seriously tasked when (no fault of hers)a viqorous moth alighted on my guest's rib eye...and she could not shoo it or capture it...which of course spread moth fuzz all over his plate and mushrooms and Mac. Discussion: what to do... Our wine, uncorked before us, would not pour. Really. Not a drop. Discussion 2: ditto. In the past, the steak and wine would have been whisked away and replaced. They were, but not with the suave of days past...Then, my guest had coffee "served" on his lap... no action on the pants.
Our sides and entree plates were with us all dinner long...normally, they would have been whisked away as appropriate... No space left to expound. But...geez, Sullivan's?

Food and service is always outstanding. The restaurant was not very crowded so the noise level was not as loud as usual. It does surprise me how loud this restaurant noise can be when there is a crowd. I like to eat in "the library" because of the noise levels; but usually it is difficult to dine in there because of large groups get first pick.

Piano bar was atractive; however, the service was the worst I've ever received, we were never acknowledged and it I had to go up to the bar and order our own drinks. Bartender apologized for the lack of service and offered personal service. The assigned waitress lacked any personal service skills, so we all decided to move into the dinning area for me personal service.

After our waiter told us he was going to be taking good care of us we didnt receive any bread at our table until we asked for it during our entree. He stopped once to ask us how the food was. Didnt top off our water or wine service. This is our second bad experience in a row at Sullivan's. Previously our food was not cooked properly--filet was like leather, green beans were raw, and manager said he would make a note on our account and encouraged us to come back. Well nothing was mentioned of our previous visit and the service fell below the mark. I'm done with Sully's

Food was delicious. Cocktail waitress the best! Wait for dinner table was excruciatingly long - reservations were at 8:15pm, we were told we would be seated by 9pm, and were actually seated at 10pm. Make for a rough birthday dinner for my senior citizen mother.

We've been to Sullivan's a number of times, but this was not a good experience. The service was abominable! No kidding! The waiter seemed to always be busy with other things and frankly, there were not a lot of people in the place. Every time we needed something, we had to ask someone else to get our server. This is not good. What's really bad is that we had out of town company and we certainly didn't impress them. This truly sad as we used to enjoy taking folks to what used to be the really greatest plac in town. I hope it was just a bad night.

We went for my Birthday. I was immediately greeted by the hostess and she sat us right away. Our waitress was very kind and didn't pressure us for time. Within 10 minutes the manager came by and said hello, said happy birthday and asked if we needed anything. At the end of our meal they served us a complimentary dessert and the manager paid for our after dinner drinks. They made this evening a very special and romantic evening. We will return soon.

Sullivan's is one of the best places in Tucson for a great, relaxing dinner. It definitely isn't a "stuffy" restaurant, where there is piano music playing at very low volumes and you can't have a normal conversation. The ambiance is fantastic with a good mix of backround music played at a reasonable volume with good lighting that is set low enough that it's comfortable on the eyes. The wait staff are very knowledgeable and easy to have a fun conversation with. This place is a must to check out while visiting Tucson or for an anniversary or special occasion. The food is absolutely fantastic! You really can't go wrong with almost anything on the menu. Prices are fairly high, with appetizer's averaging $12-$18 and entree's are $38-$42.

We really enjoyed our dinner at Sullivan's. My Crab-stuffed Shrimp wasn't something I would order again - the shrimp were small and pretty chewy so I found that part of the meal disappointing. Luckily, my wife got full early and offered me the remainder of her Filet Mignon and it was perfect. Our waiter, in particular, was attentive and friendly - as was the rest of the wait staff. This was our third or fourth visit and we'll be back.

Only draw back to the evening was a waiter who pushed all the extras all night long. Nice enough guy, and was probably following management instructions, but it was way overboard and the fact it impacted our special evening was a no no for me.

My first visit and I was very impressed. Though I was dining alone the staff was very attentive, and service was first rate. Steak was very tender, and including a salad with the entree was a plus. Price was very reasonable for an upscale restaurant with great food.

Sullivan's has great ambiance, impressive menu and great food. On this occasion my wife and I dined off of the special summer $79 speical menu for 2 which offered 3 fabulous courses. Our petite filets were done perfectly and the horseradish flavored mashed potatoes were outstanding! We also shared a great bottle of wine from the extensive wine list. However, we still ended up with a $200 tab when you added on 2 drinks ($11 each-pricey),steak toppings, wine and tip... A great place to visit when you want a romantic night out or celebrate a special occasion.
