Very good steaks. We had calamari appetizers that had unique peanut oil flavor. They had run out of ahi tuna which was disappointing. Staff is very much on the ball---never had to ask for water or any drinks as they had many eyes dedicated to your comfort. Very large assortment of wine. Very... read more

The best restaurant experience we've ever had, bar none. Good friends live in Durham and they recommended Sullivan's, so we all went. The food was great and the service was top notch. Even received a note from my server a few months later in the mail. Who does that?? Obviously Sullivan's does and I can't wait to go back. I... More

Sullivan Steakhouse is by far the best restaurant throughout the Raleigh-Durham area. It is professional managed with a well organized staff. The food is just tops and the service is impeccable. I could go on and on with praise.

You can always count on Sullivan's being consistently good. The food was spectacular and the ambience is what you would expect. It is one of the few standard steakhouses in Raleigh. If you are looking for a conservative business dinner this is one of the few options in Raleigh.

With a gift from a friend, I was able to plan a grand night out at Sullivan’s of Raleigh last evening. While being a big suburban city, Raleigh is not a dining mecca. Finding a restaurant that has atmosphere, as well as great food is difficult, especially if you treasure high quality beef as I do. Usually I only find... More

Sullivan's is our go to restaurant for special occasions for either personal or business. We have celebrated intimate occasions such as our anniversary and we have taken a group of 20 from our company and had the same quality food each and every time. The food is always amazing!

Being fairly new to the area, I asked around about a place to take my wife for our anniversary, as did she. Several places were mentioned, but we decided on Sullivan's. Most people we talked to said that it was expensive and they weren't lying. That being said, it was one of the best experiences I've had in a restaurant.... More

Wow. I have not been this impressed with a steakhouse like this for a long time. Steaks were amazing. I recommend the three button filet plate, each with a special topping. Absolutely incredible. Worth the trip. Service - 5 stars Food - 5 stars Ambience - 4 stars Price - $$$$

We have eaten here many times over the years. The experiences overall have been excellent to fair with the most recent being the worst for the food. The first bone in rib eye was full of gristle and too tough to cut with a steak knife. It also had way too much seasoning! All you could taste was salt. The... More
