That personal touch

We had a reservation at 7:30 and that’s when we arrived. We had a 15 minute wait in the bar but our bill was transferred to our table, which I like. Sullivan’s is part of a small chain which includes Del Frisco’s. We recently had a great experience at Del Frisco’s and wanted to check out... read more

I love coming here! We came with a group of friends for their anniversary and we had cocktails and dessert! The knock out Martini was delicious! I've came here before and had some steak and tavern burgers. They were really good! I love coming here!

Visited during Happy Hour. Their appetizers and drinks are excellent. Also had their Prix Fix menu and selected the Shrimp Cocktail, Wedge Salad and Steak. Excellent as well.

We enjoyed 3 consistently great meals here over the course of a month. The food, service and wine were very good. We'll be back next year !

Sullivan's is what I always think a steakhouse should be: Dark leather booths, white linen table cloths, strong drinks, and delicious steaks. The bottom line is, Sullivan's is a neighborhood gem, and feel fortunate if you can get a weekend reservation during the season. In addition to a simple, but diverse menu, the happy-hour is famous through the Desert Valley.... More

I had a coupon, so had to use it. The SureThing menu was well worth it, Food was delicious and we left satisfied and stuffed. A perfect place for late night dining. I went with a friend that lives in Palm Springs, and Sullivan's was a new experience for them. They enjoyed and said they would return and recommend. That's... More

All they wanted to do was to serve us and use the table for someone else. So disappointing when you go out for a nice meal.

Had dinner at Sullivan's last night. Most of our group of 6 went with the Sure Thing $42 menu. Everything tasted great and the service was excellent. I would not say this is a top shelf steakhouse but it was really, very good. Everyone enjoyed themselves and for a steakhouse, the bill was surprisingly reasonable. Definitely recommend it and would... More

Sullivans is as good as it gets in the desert. Palm Desert has some of the best restuarants anywhere and Suulivans stands out on top.
