We love steak & all the fixings...but we were disappointed in our visit here! Steak was not neatly as good as Ditkas or even Eddie Merlots. Trust me...we don't mind paying a high price for quality. This was not the experience we had hoped for.

One of our favorites for dinner in Naperville. Sulllivan's is a lively place with a great bar and wonderful food. The bar is very quiet on the weekdays for lunch, and they have off night specials, The burgers are great. Weekends are packed. Even if you have a reservation you will wait, but it's worth it. We have been going... More

I was here for a holiday party in the bar on a Sunday afternoon before the restaurant opened. They employed plenty of staff to make sure you could get a drink and served appetizers. The food was good and the drinks normally priced for downtown Naperville.

Most people I know love Sullivan's in downtown Naperville. It is a happening place if you like to see and be seen. The food is not exceptional but good. They have great specials at the bar. This is the one high end place that you can go to by yourself and not feel uncomfortable. The atmosphere and service make up... More

Went with some friends for my birthday and even with a reservation it took over an hour to be seated. The tables were crammed together, service chaotic and food mediocre. Two young managers walked out to the middle of the floor at one point, looked around, shrugged and left. In comparison, when we dined there about 10 years ago, you... More

Irritating waiter!! Wow. Kept hovering around us ... We went on Halloween ... big mistake. Busy, with way too many costumed-up idiots prancing around (mostly waiters and waitresses). Food was OK. Fish was off, to say the least. The person in our party that had the sea-bass was sick later that evening. Very expensive. We expected more ...

This is our third time to Sullivans. The first time we thought our $60.00 bone-in filet was exceptional and couldn't wait to come back. The next time we had just marginal quality steak and marginal service. The third time, service was excellent and the steak just average again. I feel that at this price point you can get a better...

The steak is average (not prime) for the price. The bar is outstanding and the bartenders are second to none.

We've eaten at Suilivan's more times than I can count over the years. From cocktails (which are generously poured and uniquely made) and bar food in the lounge, to dinners in the restaurant---we've never been disappointed. Is it a bit pricey? Yes. Is it worth the cost? Yes again. The steaks are mouthwatering and tender, the sides are generous and... More

I really enjoy the bar scene here. It's got an old-timey steakhouse feel to it (which I suppose it should) and the drinks are delicious. The crowd is always lively and often there is live jazz music being played. The items on the bar menu are reasonable and tasty, although the tuna tartar nachos are more like wontons (be advised)....
