We had our thanksgiving dinner here - will not go again. Lets start off - the bisque was ok it had no lobster in it except for tiny little pieces. The turkey when it was served was basically a breast that was cut in inch wide sections and had the texture of canned meat one would get out of food... More

My wife and I dine at Sullivan's for most every special occasion as well as other times throughout the year. This was the first day of Restaurant Week in Raleigh so I chose one of the specials - lobster and shrimp bisque, 12 oz strip steak and a banana bread pudding for desert. I was impressed that the portions were... More

Had reservation for a week. Place was packed. One could not carry on a conversation without shouting. Placed order. Server came back and said we are out of baked potatoes. Steaks and sides were not hot when served. I am disappointed greatly. Service was spotty to say the least.

The steaks are amazing! Great variety and cooked to perfection. The service is great and they have an impressive wine list.

I paid for the rewards club membership but the server was unable to find my account so that I could use the $20 I have earn plus get credit for the $110 I spent (on myself only) that night. I have even written their corporate folks to inquire about it and that was over two weeks ago. Haven't heard a... More

Impeccable steaks. Great location (downtown Glenwood Ave), and good wine pairings. The room is dark, so you shouldn't need sunglasses :). The service is the only real area lacking. It's just when they get slammed they get slow. I think they might be understaffed on weekends honestly. Other than staffing issues, highly recommended.

We took our daughter for her 18th birthday at 5:00 pm. Staff was attentive and kind. Service was a little slow. We were sat at a table with folding chairs that were not comfortable at all. For the money you pay for food, I think they could splurge on nicer seating. Filet, Oscar style was good. Kobe beef was tender... More

First visit to this place but we will be back. This place was packed, but lucky for us we had reservations for a few weeks. We went with friends and were seated time we walked in. Sullivan's seems to specialize in fine dining and great food. They also have an extensive wine and beer menu. We had the 12oz Ribeye... More

We dine at Sullivan's for almost every personal celebration - birthdays, anniversaries, etc. because, although expensive, our meals are always excellent. We like the decor which is kind of NYC steakhouse with wood paneling and a lot of activity. On this busy night we were seated promptly in the booth we requested. It was much appreciated. My strip steak was... More
