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

The attentiveness of the staff was incredible. Just enough interaction to feel special, but, not enough to be annoyed. Great balance. Our waiter Ghee (sp) was truly a professional as well as personable, a very hard balance to maintain. Lobster and Shrimp bisque.... I have not had such a tasteful bisque in 5 years, made my tummy VERY happy. The... More

We were so pleased with previous trips to Sullivan's over past years that we decided to eat there on Thursday night. We had reservations but really didn't need them as the dining room was fairly empty (the bar area was pretty full). The hostess initially tried to seat us at a table in the middle of the empty room, but... More

My husband surprised me on my birthday with dinner reservation at Sullivan's Steakhouse. I was pleased with how friendly the staff was. Our waitress asked if we were celebrating anything special and proceeded to wish me happy birthday. The Maitre D came to talk and checked on us. I ordered the Creme Brulée for dessert and they wrote Happy birthday... More

We had a lovely dinner celebration here. The calamari appetizer was spicy and crispy and very good. The shrimp cocktail was a bit tough and overpriced. The beef entrees were cooked as ordered and very flavorful. The salmon was a little dry but had nice flavor. Overall, it was a very good meal but quite pricey.

In my review from January 21, 2014, I praised Sullivan's for it food and service. This time the food was not of the same quality. We ordered from a three course prix fixe menu for $39.00 that was a good offering. The "Jumbo Shrimp Cocktail" consisted of three medium sized shrimp. A The shrimp was good but the haphazard appearance... More

We love to go to Sullivans. The atmosphere is swanky and elegant with a touch of 'let your hair down'. The food is always superb as well as the service by the wait staff. I have never been disappointed with anything I've ordered at this restaurant. Their cocktails are incredible. You must try their signature cocktails. The steaks are always... More
