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

I get it. I am related to meat eaters. That said, the shrimp and pasta dish wasn't very good and the bread was very stale. Service was very attentive. Obviously, I won't be back by my NC family members will. Bar service is really slow but everyone is really kind and nice so that makes up for slow and disorganization.... More

Wife and I visited the downtown location in Raleigh on Saturday March 22. We were seated promptly for our 5 pm reservation at a small table. For drinks, the wife ordered a Margarita and I had The Knockout. The pineapple infused martini was very refreshing with a rich head of foam. We both ordered a second round. For apps it... More

Sullivan's Steakhouse is a perfect retro visit to the famous steakhouses of yore. White table cloths, sharp knives (event though you might not need it because of the tenderness of the steak), fantastic service, perfect shaken martinis and beautiful ambiance. A real gem of the South.

This place is great. From the moment we sat down service was over the top. The waitress had great suggestions, knew the menu well, told us of some wines. We chose the pre prix menu which was a 3 course meal with an appetizer, salad, and main course. I had the calamari which was the best I have ever had.... More

I went to 50th birthday celebration at Sullivan's and there were about 25 of us. The bill for my husband and I was $150. This did not include wine or anything special. We had the lettuce wedge which was delicious and the cheesecake which was also delicious but everything else was blah. The sirloin was extremely dry and the sides... More

The food was okay, though not AMAZING. However, please try the steak egg roll appetizers which look and taste like nothing you imagine when you hear "egg roll." The service was wonderful. I ordered the lamb which was just okay. Bring your wallet--our meal for 2 which only included 1 drink and no deserts hit 3 figures $$$.

Bottom line - one of the best steaks (fillet, medium rare) that I ever had. The service was excellent. In the area, this is tied with Bin 54 as my favorite steak house. The family loved it too. A must experience.

I was taken out by a vendor for a customer appreciation dinner at Sullivan's Steakhouse along with ten other contractors. Today I have a food hangover we ate so much delicious food! To start, they brought out trays of seafood appetizers including stone crab, oysters, calamari, shrimp and ahi tuna. Yummy, what a way to start the meal! Next they... More

Last night four of us took advantage of restaurant week in Raleigh. Sullivan's offered a three course $30 menu that was diverse enough to appeal to meat or seafood appetites. There was a misunderstanding with one of the orders and the staff and management jumped in and handled it with grace and professionalism. The food was served hot, the veggies... More
