We went in for happy hour and the waitress brought us water that was so chlorinated that we could not drink it. I told her it was terrible and she suggested I order pelligrino. Really??? A classy restaurant doesn't filter their water?? We then asked about happy hour specials and they only had two wines and none of their beers... More

The food was incredible. The entertainment was perfect. Their were 3 other folks celebrating their birthdays so the night turned into one great party. To top it off,... More

Been going to Sullivan's since they open at The Gardens at El Paso many years ago. A fun place to go with I have friends in town visiting, the drinks are generous, the food is fantastic, and the combo playing in the bar is awesome.....all that makes for a fun night out with the girls, a date, or even by...

The worst steak house experience of my life! The first and I hope the last time my wife and I walk out of a dinner mid meal. It started with the poor service.. Our waitress was rude and struggled to handle the basics of customer service. We both ordered steaks as you would expect at a steak house. We asked... More

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
