Nice Night Out

The atmosphere is very nice, dark wood and casually elegant. At times a bit loud, however. The service was excellent. Both professional and friendly. As an appetizer we ordered the calamari. A huge portion - we brought half of it home after two of us ate our fill. Delicious. The wife had... read more

This review is long overdue as my husband and I have eaten here many times as a couple and we have also had numerous business diners. The service has always been spot on and the food is always good. My favorite is their filet mignon with Gorgonzola butter with a side of mushroom caps. The wedge salad is delicious and... More

This restaurant rivals the best in the city. A bit pricey and loud, but a good lively atmosphere with excellent service.

I've been told this is the best steakhouse in Raleigh. I've been to Ruth Chris and Angus Barn. I can't argue with the claim of best steakhouse. Service was great, food was great, drinks were, wait for it, great. Not a budget meal. Steaks are close to $50 and you pay for your sides. Good meal. I would recommend it.

The steaks were excellent. First time visiting this location. Service was Execllent. Only bad thing one the steake was cooked too much even though the order was for medium rare. They quickly took it back and made another one properly.

Three of us dined at Sullivans on a weeknight. We were asked if it was a special occasion and replied yes. There was not follow-up after that. We were rushed through our meal and the servers dropped silverware on the table in a hurry to clean up while we were still sitting there. I sent internet feedback to the General... More

Eugene I agree. We were there the same night with another couple, and spent a lot more money! We had a 7:15 reservation. We were squeezed into a tight booth (average sized people), and literally could not have eaten more if we wanted too. Our server must have been new. His presentation was poor, but friendly. Kinda like he trained... More
