Really more of a 3.5

It was good. Better than average but not super exciting. Just felt very vanilla. My friends were really happy with their steaks so I leaned towards the 4 stars. My chicken was really bland. The cocktails and wine list were good though and the staff was very nice. I wouldn't not go again but... read more

I am so glad that I visited here during my short stay in the Palm Desert for my observership in the Betty Ford Centre. The service of this restaurant was just impeccable (my server was Ashley)! The steak was also cooked to perfection and very nicely presented. One of my best dining experiences so far. I also just received a... More

We took our son to Sullivan's to celebrate his birthday. The atmosphere is trendy and eclectic. The bar was very busy with a nice combo playing. Our dinners were excellent! My husband and I had their Summer Fling dinner which was a petite Filet Mignon with a Lobster Tail. My husband and son tried their lobster bisque which I tasted... More

Sullivan's is a first class restaurant any day of the year but their Summer Deal is really an extraordinary value. $45 for a full three course dinner is wonderful. Add wonderful service, great atmosphere, and live music in the bar and it's a perfect night out!

I had never been to Sullivan's and walked in at about 5:15 after doing a little shopping on El Paseo. The bartender, Amy, was friendly and made the suggestion of trying a Blueberry Lemon Drop which was amazing. She also suggested the cheesesteak egg rolls and potato tots. Both were delicious! The staff was very attentive and the band (with... More

We wanted a place to celebrate our 24th wedding anniversary, so we tried Sullivan's. We were not disappointed - we're going back. It's a steakhouse, so I don't need to get into the menu, you know what to expect on that, but they did have a nice variety of options. Vegetables were separate, as you might expect with a nicer...

Sullivan's is on the second floor of a popular shopping center on beautiful El Paseo Drive. Nice ambience with black leather booths and white tablecloths. The service is friendly. The menu includes steak, seafood, chicken and specials. The wedge salad is great. Nice wine list and full bar. Very enjoyable.

For my last night in Palm Springs my friend wanted to treat me to a fantastic dinner. We even took public transit so we could have a couple drinks each! We started with a caesar salad that we split. They kindly brought it out on two plates for us. It was nice. We moved on to the steak and lobster... More

Trying new restaurants for restaurant week. New server...trying his darndest. Ordered extra sides that didn't get in the take away box (crab, potato) - not happy about that. Very noisy. Of the eight of us the general consensus was that the food was ok. Heard that it was good for happy hour. We might try that.

We love to come here for happy hour. You canget some tastey treats for only$7. Tonight we tried to order a second drink to go with our food but the server told us happy hour ended at 6pm and walked away. It was only 6:01pm. We would have liked another knockout even if we had to pay full price. Its... More
