We enjoyed a wonderful anniversary dinner at Sullivan's. The service and food were top notch.

Disappointing on several levels, and this was not our first visit there:
1. It was a dinner with friends we see maybe a few times a year, so we were hoping for a leisurely and time extended meal. However, we felt rushed by our waitress from the moment we were seated.
2. My wife’s martini had been sloppily poured into her glass and down the stem of the glass, so holding the glass was a sticky mess (yuck!)
3. My friend ordered a dinner special (steak with scallops), and when it was delivered to our table, the scallops were missing. The rest of us waited for the scallops to arrive before beginning our meals...so they were warm when we dug in.
4. I ordered my fillet to be Prepared ‘medium rare’ and when I cut into it, the meat was dry and more likely prepared as ‘medium’.

The restsurant’s General manager was obvious in his presence as he circled through the restaurant throughout our meal, yet never bothered to check in with us. Again, disappointing.

Like I said we have dined there before, and always had very good level of service. Maybe this was just a bad night for your staff and server.

We had not been to the Wilmington DE location in a while but always had had a great experience when we did go in the past. The waitress was excellent and very knowledgeable of the menu. It was very busy the night we went and noticed several large groups in attendance. My fiancé and I had ordered the price fix meal that night. My soup that I had ordered for first course came out cold. I had flagged a busboy down and he kindly took it back. When I did get my soup back it was marginally warmer and I could tell that it was just placed in the microwave as the cup was hot but the soup was not. It would have been best to just present a new cup of soup. The entree's were fine. Both of us had filet. We were very disappointed in the dessert as I could clearly tell the key lime pie was old or past due. I formerly had been employed by private city club and had managed a fine dining restaurant in a hotel. I typically don't make a fuss about things but this was clearly a bad experience for my fiancé and me. I am strongly considering not ever going back which is a disappointment to me. I hope this feedback can be used to better the quality of food that is presented.
Thank you.

Uncharacteristically, our service was poor. One of our entrees did not get made. No one checked. Our waitress disappeared. I had to get up and walk back to the kitchen to begin to get it sorted out. The manager did come over and take that entree off of our tab, but, ambience of the moment was ruined. It was a birthday celebration for my wife and our son was visiting from Scotland. I have never had such a thing happen to me in a resturant. And I have been to Sullivan’s many, many times over the years. They had a really bad night. And it was the least busy I had ever seen it.

The dining room was freezing, my food was brought out incomplete (fish with no toppings or sides) and when confirming my reservation, someone hung up on me. Besides that it was good.

The staff went above and beyond to change our Thanksgiving reservation after our Nana hurt herself and needed medical attention. The service was absolutely outstanding. The manager was a constant presence and was working just as hard as his servers. The portion size was extremely generous and the food was delicious. We started this Thanksgiving tradition last year and will keep it going.

We enjoyed a delicious and unrushed Thanksgiving dinner at Sullivan’s in Wilmington last week. I can’t say enough about the service—very attentive yet not at all intrusive. The meal was delicious and we liked the choices we were given for soup/salad, sides and dessert and all were excellent. The portions of turkey, stuffing and gravy were generous and tasty—not at all dry—and the pricing was reasonable. We would definitely return.

My experience at Sullivan's this time around was not like my last. My friend and I ordered filet medium and it came out medium well, pretty close to well done. It's frustrating when you're spending a decent amount on filet and they can't get it the way you want. I had to send mine back and wait which led to my sides being cold. My friend should have sent hers back, but felt uncomfortable doing so. After having a problem with our meats I am surprised the manager didn't stop by our table to apologize as well. Since he was pacing through the restraurant all night. This experience has diminished the wow experience I had last time at the Baltimore location.

Food was great, food came out fast but waitress was overwhelmed by too many tables and we had extraordinarily long waits after the food was served, waiting for the check, waiting for desert, waiting to sign the credit card. Sort of spoiled a special occasion.

Waiter had three tables, there were two of us we placed our entire order and we were there before any other table, at least 15 minutes. Afterwards a table of 8 and then another table of 8 or more. We were basically forgotten, drinks ran out, long waits between any type of refills or fresh cocktails or cleaning of empty plates off tables. I am not even sure we were asked how our meal was. We have eaten at the Sullivan's chain for well over 10+ years and the Wilmington, DE location continues to disappoint us. The service at the Inner Harbor location in Baltimore, MD is top notch no matter how many in your party or how many people / tables your server has to attend to.

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.

My wife and I had a decent dining experience up until our departure. I left my credit card at the table with my check and the server came outside and handed it to us. At that time, the server questioned the gratuity amount that we left him which in our opinion is very tasteless and we would never expect it from an establishment like Sullivan's.
