My sweetie and I tried Sullivan's during Restaurant Week. The food was fabulous and the service was even better! I cannot recall any time having better service than what we had at Sullivan's!

It is restaurant week and we are exploring some uncharted waters. Although, not completely uncharted because I have been to a Sullivan's in Delaware. So I had high, high expectations. Those were exceeded. First, lets start with the basics. There is valet parking for about $7 and also several nearby public parking garages. So parking is very easy. Second, the... More

What can I say. We are foodies and have traveled all around the world. Yet Sullivan's gave us an incredible experience. Our waitress was just tremendous ,but then the manager came over and started interacting with us. We shared war stories of restaurants and the interaction was just great. The shrimp and lobster bisque was just superb. The cheese steak... More

Never disappointed and very deserving of five stars. The only negative is that I cannot afford to eat here very often and parking can be difficult (although they have valet). Exceptional service, consistent food quality with the number one protein being beef, and extensive wine selection - all high standards and expectations fully met. I used to order the beef... More

While in Raleigh for a week, Sullivan's was highly recommended by a few people. I ordered a shrimp appitizer and the Filet for an entree. I think they were training a new wait person as she had someone behind her most of the time. She was OK, but that was just it. At a place like this with a premium... More

We've tried steaks, fish, side dishes and all were delicious! They also have an extensive wine list. Highly recommended for romantic or family dinners!

Sullivan's is the perfect place for first dates or anniversaries. Dining room tables are close together but you can still have conversation. If you are on a budget, visit the bar during Happy Hour. A Steak and veggie is more affordable during Happy Hour than other times. Great place to meet after work. I've always meet some interesting people at... More

Liked the steaks, they were cooked with great skill. However, the guests were too noisy, it was like sitting in a bar. At these prices, there should be better management of very loud guests. We asked the manager to assist and basically he did very little to address a loud table of six drunks. They nearly ruined out evening, minus... More

We were in town for the US Open at Pinehurst and spent one evening in Raleigh. Food was absolutely delicious but they forgot our appetizers! It made it even more disappointing they forgot because the food was so good. I guess it was fine because the 22 oz T-bone had me lights out in a good way! Service was extremely... More

My wife used to work at Sullivan's in Baton Rouge so we wanted to check out the one in Raleigh for nostalgia reasons. We went on a Thursday during restaurant week and the place was hopping. (FYI Thursday is half price cocktails, get a knockout!). We both did the prefix dinner which consisted of a a main course, starter, and... More
