Nice place, nice people, but my wife's steak was overcooked and nobody came back to check on us during the eating of our entree and by the time that they did, it was too late. We looked forward to the steak all day and celebrating something in our lives and ruining a meal like that really sucks. We had dessert and were mildly comped for the food that was ruined by the kitchen (and we were not looking for that), but were really disappointed with how long the entrees took to come out and how a place that specializes in steaks can overcook a simple steak.

We have dined here several times and have always enjoyed it...until this occasion. The person who delivered our food mixed up our steaks, so we ended up trading after the first bite, At dessert time, we waited a good while, supposedly, according to the server, for the bread pudding (a favorite) to be heated up. It arrived stone cold, and the bananas in this "bananas foster" confection were actually rather crunchy. Not at all what we have come to expect at Sullivan's.

This was my 1st time to Sullivan's in over 18+ years. Overall the experience was great, but there were a couple things that were surprising. 1st, my wife ordered 12oz Filet Migon with asparagus and she only got 3 asparagus. 2ndly, the male server who brought the check over made me feel rushed... He brought the check over and I am paying cash, he came over twice and asked was I ready to pay and said NO because we were still talking and taking pictures... Other than that it was great.... Cheesesteak Rolls are to die for, but not enough for the price in my opinion.

For a steakhouse, the assumption is that an ordered steak would naturally be cooked as requested. Had to return it. New one was still overcooked. I decided to eat it anyway. Didn't want them to have to throw away another $$ steak. Management apologized. When I received bill, the steak was taken off. That was not necessary especially since I ate it. Aside from the overcooked steak, I would definitely recommend. The food was very good.

We have become lighter eaters and opted for “TheSure Thing” prix fixe menu. We both had the 6oz.filet medium. They we cooked perfectly. The horseradish mashed potatoes were scrumptious. We also ordered a side of Brussels sprouts, which were very good but I prefer mine cooked less crunchy. The deserts were also delicious. My husband had Cheesecake and I had the banana fosters bread pudding. Service was great and we really enjoyed our meal. Great date night!!

Go often, usually to sit at the bar. Increasingly we are going for dinner, and this was for our wedding anniversary. So glad to see Luis bussing there. I recognize him from his old spot, and he is the hardest working guy on the floor. All of the staff was excellent, though, and the drinks were spot on as always.

Hostess wasn’t friendly, put a bad taste in our mouth from the start. We felt like an intrusion in Her day. She started our celebratory night off with a bad feeling. Hard to recover and appreciate a pricey night when you’re treated like a subhuman from the start.

The food was outstanding. Everything seasoned and cooked to perfection. I wish they went back to more traditional service though. Part of the experience in my opinion is having the same person wait your table. We had a host, an initial waiter, a water person, a bread person, a food delivery person which was different for appetizer and meal. It lacks intimacy when there's just an army of people coming to the table. Last visit (2 years ago), our waitress was fabulous, friendly and completed the experience for us as she was a constant. It was a delicious meal, just lacked the previous personal touch.

We ordered the seafood tower. It arrived w/o a mallet/ cracker for the crab legs which weren’t pre-sliced. No discard bowl for the shells or seafood forks. Server was no where to be found. After 10 mins, found manager wondering the dining room and asked for above mentioned items.

Server returned with saltine crackers. What a joke!

A restaurant of this caliber should know how to serve shellfish. It’s was very disappointing since we frequent this establishments often.

Never saw the manager again and no apology for the service. If you are in Wilmington DE ... Go to Harry’s Savoy instead.

The service was fantastic. Every time we have dined here my steak has not been prepared the way I prefer. I believe they only know one way to cook steaks. I didn't send it back this time because I didn't want to hold up our group by having to wait for my dinner. I only dine here for special occasions due to the cost and more so the past history of sending back my plate.

We been going for date nights and special occasions. On this particular night $200 for two didn’t seem the same value as we have had in the past here are a few reasons why - when checking in for our open table reservation we realized no points would be earned but the hostess took our name then really didn’t say anything for several minutes so we were a little lost, one main entry order was supplied incorrect from order as the oringal special order was two 6oz pieces one with crab upgrade and the other with another topping. Instead of the two I got three medallion which was equal steak but less than a tblsp of crab. When the main entry came there were only two spears of asparagus. Waitress was awesome on attentiveness and picked up on surprise queues and brought a larger side portion of asparagus as well. We have enjoyed the place and not ruling it out may just be a little hesitant for a quick return

We went to Sullivan's for our wedding anniversary as we have for the past several years. Once again it did not disappoint. The waitress and rest of the staff went out of their way to make it a special dinner for us. The card with our picture along with the Rose pedals on the table were a nice touch. They also provide a free desert as well. None of that would have mattered if the food was not up to par. The food did not disappoint either. The steaks were juicy and both of us enjoyed our fresh crisp salads. And of course, the fresh piping hot bread with soft butter (too many place serve cold hard butter with their bread) was great as well. We also had a couple of scallops and they were cooked perfectly (tender not rubbery in the slightest).

We made a reservation, but decided that we wanted to move it a half an hour earlier. We called and there was no problem with that. We were seated right away when we arrived. We were then greeted and drinks were brought within a few minutes. They brought bread and butter while we looked at the menu. I ordered the filet mignon and my husband ordered the salmon with an iceberg salad. The salad was a good size and my husband liked it. My steak was perfectly to a medium and the green bean side was perfectly done and seasoned. The salmon was a large portion and was perfectly seasoned. We split a key lime pie that was tasty and seemed authentically made with key limes. We loved how this restaurant was dimly lit and was quiet. It was nice to have a night out and be able to hear each other.
