Great food and drinks. Outstanding service. Place was packed at 7 PM, but you'd never know it by the service. Always looking forward for our next visit.

Nice atmosphere, good service, good menu! They use a lot of salt/seasoning on meat & fish. The cuts are excellent, so they don't need to cover anything up w salt! We will ask for no salt next visit & I'm sure it will be excellent!!!

It was our wedding anniversary and as soon as we were seated, our table was covered with rose pedals and a nice card wishing us a Happy Anniversary. Our waitress was fantastic and she and everyone from the Manager to the water server took a moment to provide us good wishes. The food was excellent and we enjoyed the environment. We enjoyed it so much that we made reservations for our family for Thanksgiving. Outstanding environment, outstanding food and outstanding service. What more could you want. Oh....and they provided desert as a treat for our Anniversary. Dinner here added to this special day for the both of us.

Birthday dinner. Ordered from the prix fixe menu. Filet mignon was perfectly prepared (one medium rare, one Pittsburgh rare). Soup was hot, sides were delicious. Cheesecake dessert with a birthday candle. The perfect night.

The service was outstanding. Everyone was friendly and the table photo was a great touch. Giving a free dessert was also a good birthday gesture. The steak was good but not as good as Ruth Chris. I would also like to see a sweet potatoes casserole on the menu. My problem with the food was the stuffed lobster tails tasted a bit fishy and just was not good. I did not want to make a big deal of it and ruin my wife's celebration.

I was not that impressed and it was not like I remember it to be like a few years ago. the service at the bar was good but then they stuck us in this table right next to the kitchen. It was noisy and all the hussle and traffic from the wait staff and managers congregated directly next to our table. In my opinion there should not even be a table there. Maybe if we were sat in a different location the experience would have been different. Also our server was not the fastest but he did get everything correct.

The noise level was lower in the back room. It was nice. The wait staff seemed more attentive this rime; perhaps it was because we indicated on our reservations that it was our anniversary, or perhaps it was because we were in the back room, but whatever the reason it was nice. The steaks were perfectly cooked and seasoned, as always.

The waitress was terrific and very accommodating. I had a wonderful time with my husband for dinner.
Only complaint we have is the 2 managers completely ignored us, but went to only the tables that were drinking. How sad is that! We can’t drink for medical reasons but we did spend a nice amount of money.
At least our waitress made up for their rudeness and kept wishing me a Happy Birthday

We made the reservation just 20 minutes before showing up and asked for a quiet corner booth large enough for two of us to work on our PC's over dinner. We were perfectly accommodated without having to remind anyone. The steak and horseradish garlic mashed potatoes were superb as was the french onion soup, the mixed greens salad and the key lime pie. Service started off a little to quickly for our taste, but the wait staff quickly adjusted. Great experience!

The steak was good. The side dishes were average, at best. Service is fine. The dining room is so dark my client had to use the flashlight on his phone to read the menu. Overall,nothing close to being worth the price charged.

As always, Sullivan’s lived up to our previous visits. My only criticism is a small one; that the entree took a long time to get to us after appetizers when there were only four seated tables at that point. One was a party of about 10, but they were on dessert at that point. Otherwise, everything was very enjoyable.

The food was quite as expected, Excellent! Prepared the way I ordered it, medium rare and tasty. Having the Wagyu bone in strip, which was pricy but needing to try, I must admit that I was a bit disappointed. It was no better than the house strip steak, which is to say excellent, but not worth the price tag, at least to me. The assortment of oysters was perfect for the connoisseur and clean, devoid of all sediment and shell fragments. Sides were likewise well prepared and tasty and juicy, especially the mushrooms. The baked potatoes are incredible, both in size and preparation, with a crispy crust and salty. You may want to consider sharing one, since they are huge but well worth it. The deserts were delicious, but I would prefer more options. Our waitress, Sarah was Perfect! The right combination of professional server, efficient and personal interaction with our family at dinner. She did not hover and yet we never had to look for her when we needed anything or had a question, she is the consummate professional food service employee. Overall, a Wonderful Dining Experience and an excellent place for the family get together.

We celebrated our 31st wedding anniversary on October 18th at Sullivan’s. Lindsay, our waitress, was awesome and provided excellent service. While a couple dining next to us was formally acknowledged by the Manager, I left wondering why he did not stop by our table to inquire about our evening. I heard him ask the couple if they enjoyed their meal and if there was anything they needed. Was it because we were the only African American family dining that evening in the restaurant......I can’t help but wonder why we had so many stares at us as we entered and left the restaurant.....we actually reside in an affluent predominantly white community about 10 minutes from the restaurant.....as my 15 year old daughter acknowledged, it’s 2017, not 1960!

Overall we had a very nice evening celebrating my parents both turning 70. Our server was excellent and was very attentive. This was my fathers first time at Sullivans and he enjoyed it very much.He loved the bone in dry aged ribeye ...My wife and I frequent both the bar side as well as the main dining room...I was quite relieved the steaks were proper thickness this time. About a month ago my wife and I were in and my medium rare ribeye was paper thin and grey through-out. It tasted fine and I'm not one to send food back unless something is in-edible. Obviously it wasn't that big of a deal, however I was disappointed because I so look forward to amazing steaks and sea bass. Just a little feedback.

Thanks,

Mike

Beautiful Atmosphere. Very flavorful steak. Had 7:00 reservation but they ran out of baked potatoes? How could this be? I was the only one that had crab and was ill for the next day...so not extremely happy about that. The service was great but overall experience wasn't up to my previous expectations. Almost felt like it was under new management.

There were two issues. Length of time between order and food and they had two prices o two different pages for the exact same bottle of wine,and we are talking the difference between a $30 some bottle and a $70 some bottle. Big difference. Should not have happened. Apologized?

I've lived 3 miles from Sullivan's for 17 years and have never been. Sad to say, I will never return. Our waiter (upseller) barely ever returned. We went long periods without our (tiny) drinks being refreshed and were never offered bread. The food was mediocre and my husband spent the rest of the night in the bathroom. When the prices are this high, an 8-oz filet should be an 8-oz filet (not 4 oz) and service should be consistent. We won't be back.

This restaurant is not what it once was. They’ve redecorated, which is nice, but the service is hit or miss. And, they still maintain all of the hostesses and waitresses all in their own choice of black outfits, each with their own length of skirt, fishnet hose and deep cut blouses, as if that creates an air of formality.

Bread is served in a bowl. How is one to cut that?
The busboy kept reaching over our plate to refill water. Yes, I will enjoy your smelly armpit in my face. May I have another please?
They forgot the side order, which arrived 2/3 of the way through the steak.
Steak was good.
Shrimp app was five pieces. Why, when there are two persons sharing, don’t they round up? Will one more shrimp break the bank?

I think this closely resembles a persons idea of what a steakhouse should be, rather than an actual steakhouse. Next time, for $200, I will go to The Saloon in south Philly (or better yet, Sparks in NYC). Thanks Sullivan’s, for making my wife’s birthday so special!

We had reservations for 7:15 and the lobby was full when we arrived around 7 pm. We waited about 20 minutes after our reservation time to be seated. I had the French onion soup which was very tasty. The beef broth in the soup was exceptional. I just wish the soup's temperature was hotter. It was served lukewarm. We tried to order key lime pie for dessert but they didn't have any left. Service was okay but not as good as what we've had in the past. Normally, I would rate this restaurant as a 5 but would rate our experience on Saturday as a 3.5.

3 out of 4 of us had nice food and with slow service. I was served the wrong steak, and by the very long time the mistake was corrected with a steak that was not cooked to my original requested temperature and brought out only after I asked the host to check on the status of my dinner, the other 3 were finished with their dinners. My meal was appropriately comped without asking, but then days later, I discovered that my tip had been incorrectly increased by an extra dollar by the waitstaff. Very poor showing tonight!!

Tonight was my husband's 40th birthday and I mentioned that when I made the reservation. When we were seated our waitress Lindsay wished him a happy birthday and put a hand drawn bday card on the table so all the waitstaff knew.

The food was cooked perfectly, the service was excellent and Lindsay even had "happy birthday" written on the dessert for my husband and took a picture of the 2 of us and had it printed out as a keepsake. We were blown away by the food and service was outstanding, everyone went above and beyond. The GM came around too to make sure we enjoyed our meal and also wished my husband a happy bday. 5 stars and 2 thumbs up!
