This is a wonderful place for special occasions. The quality is very good but the price is a little high making repeat visits something you think about. Still, the service is wonderful. They have a seasonal menu that is always fresh. They have an extensive wine list and they are very happy to... read more

2 of 5 stars Reviewed July 1, 2015 NEW

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

Super service. Great martini. Steak cooked to perfection. Great oysters on the half shell. This is a traditional old time steak house. Beef steak tomatoes, fresh hot bread, but the steak makes the meal.

All of the girls waiting on us were VERY good, never letting drinks get low, and keeping the table clean. The food was very tasty (calamari and potato appetizers), but the salmon was average though.

I've eaten at Sullivan's in Chicago many times and every meal was awesome. We moved to the Raleigh are less than a year ago and decided to try the Sullivans brunch this Mother's Day. It was an absolute disaster starting with an extraordinarily awkward and flighty waitress. The salads and first course was ok but the crab cake eggs Benedict... More

I thought that it would be a treat to take my wife to Sullivan's. It was not. Apparently the kitchen and the staff could not handle the crowd. My wife ordered the fillet, it arrived cold an raw. We had to send it back. My prime rib was cold; cutting it was like cutting leather with a feather. The combination... More

We selected this restaurant at the recommendation of a friend. From the minute we were seated till we left our experience was exemplary. Fabulous service, attentive wait staff and impeccable food. Although pricy, I will say you get what you pay for. We started with a calamari appetizer which was tender, juicy and do flavorful. The steaks proved to be... More
