My wife and I recently had dinner at this restaurant in Palm Desert, CA; one of our favorites. Melody was our server, and she did an outstanding job. She was very attentive, professional and courteous. We took advantage of the fixed price dinner and thought the value for what we got was fantastic. Nice-sized portions; perfectly prepared. The manager visited... More

Liked everything. Food, wine, service. And the manager was especially attentive...given that we were the only patrons in the restaurant at the time (we went early...).

Enjoyed martinis and bleu cheese chips, then we shared a summer special dinner; shrimp cocktail, wedge salad, and steak... all prepared perfectly!

Sullivan's is an excellent steakhouse restaurant located on El Paseo (second floor) in the heart of Palm Desert. It has a "lively" bar area and Happy Hour. During the winter months we dined there on two occasions having steak (filet) each time. Entrees were excellent as was the service on both occasions. We would recommend.

Most of us had the dinner special. Everything was quite good. There were a few issues with timing and at a good restaurant the food server should not have to ask who got what as they are bringing it to the table. We were all pleased with the selections and choices. Sullivan's is a younger crowd in the desert. There... More

We've dined at many steakhouses/restaurants claiming to provide the finest in food and service. This includes Morton's, McCormick and Schmick, and a few others. Truly they are fine dining establishments, but Sullivan's is the finest we've ever had. Everyone we spoke with, including the manager we're professional, yet made you feel right at home. The food is simply excellent and... More

Sullivan's has always been one of my favorite restaurants in the desert. I have always been happy with the service, the atmosphere, and of course the food. I usually order the filet which has never disappointed me. The restaurant has just recently remodeled. I love the new look. The main dining area use to be a little noisy. With the... More

We had to buy their Fathers Day gift cards...such a great deal! We will be back several times this year on vacation. Their Happy hour is amazing. Great drinks, great food. We always have the bleu cheese chips. The ahi and shrimp are also sure to please!

Thu and Sunday they offer all night happy hour. They've changed the menu a few times over the past few years but it's still a great value. If you want something less formal than dining seating, the bar is good.

Chose this place based on recommendation from a friend. Unwelcoming from the moment we stepped in. For a high end steak house I was most disappointed. I have to say the kale salad was delicious....but 40 dollars for a filet that was flavorless much less presentation poor and service less. I will not return to a Sullivan's in the future.... More
