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

This used to be one of my favorite steakhouses but no more. It has been going down for years but I kept coming back thinking it was a fluke. I won't be back again. I was recently there with a group and we were all disappointed. The service was absolutely awful. The server got our orders wrong and was never... More

Was taken here for mother's day this past weekend. The New York steak and Filet Mignon were excellent; so was the mac n cheese! The mashed potatoes were, meh. The sourdough bread you get before dinner is served is quite messy, but luckily the waitresses have a tool they use to scrape the scraps off the table linen. $12 for... More
