Went with my date. We loved the atmosphere both inside and outside - and so did a bunch of prom kids! Excellent service and wine recommendations.

About the restaurant
For any requests or accommodations for dinner parties of 7 or more guests, please contact the restaurant by phone.

This is a restaurant where steak is the star–where great steak is the rule, not the exception. Mahogany’s steaks are the finest custom-aged U.S. Prime Midwestern Beef, known for its excellence in marbling, texture and flavor. We broil it exactly the way you like it at 900 degrees to lock in the corn-fed flavor. We serve it sizzling on a heated plate so that it stays hot throughout your meal. Selections from the ocean include Australian Rock lobster and the freshest fish daily based on availability. Service will be outstanding, but provided in a casual, less intimidating fine-dining atmosphere.

My husband and I needed a night out and found ourselves at Dolce. The food was absolutely incredible. We had the 6-course chef special along with a wine pairing for each course. I was in bliss the entire night.

It was our first time dining at Sullivans and we were very impressed. Our server, Logan S., was very attentive and offered to walk us through the menu. We started with calamari per his recommendation and it was very good. I ordered the 8 oz filet and my husband ordered the 12 oz NY strip and we split the lobster garlic mashed potatoes. Our steaks were cooked perfectly and the crust on them was next level. Paired with the bourbon peppercorn sauce per Logan’s recommendation it was the perfect steak. The mashed potatoes were incredible as well with large chunks of lobster. We will definitely be back.

Impeccable service with a great view! To stay among the top tier they should pay attention to food preparation. The menu is broad without being overwhelming and some dishes are outstanding. Do everything you do at the highest level and discontinue offerings that are only so so.
