I've been a Morton's fan for years. Back on the East Coast, there were a few fine steak restaurants. Until a few years ago, that wasn't the same, but, now there are choices which are worth noting. Sullivan's located on El Paseo in Palm Desert is one noteworthy steak restaurant. Its steaks are nicely prepared and the accompaniments are quite... More

We went to Sullivan's with another couple and the food was outstanding. Perfect steaks and the best wedge salad....ever ! The servers were very friendly and upbeat despite how busy it was. The band was great and interactive. WE will be definitely going to Sullivan's again on our next visit to Palm Desert.

The happy hour and bar menu are superb. I had the steak off of the happy hour with french fries which was one of the best meals I had in the Palm Springs area. Don't miss it!

I had taken my mom to Sullivan's a couple of years back, and remember it for its style and buzz and deep wine list and good food. Went back with the whole family and we were quite disappointed. The interior looks to have been detuned from my last visit, in terms of sophistication, and the lighting was too bright --... More

Coming from a small town in Colorado; in the middle of basically nowhere, my business associates and I were looking forward to a fabulous meal. It had been a few years since I had a meal at Sullivan's so before making the trip to Palm Desert, I made reservations. It was a perfect evening from start to finish. The dining... More

Had a lovely dinner in the bar at Sullivan's that offered tasty appetizers including a small steak. We shared 3 items including the steak with our cocktails and had a nice evening including a two piece combo playing good music in the background.
