Sirracha shrimp are fabulous. Always look forward to this item on the happy hour menu. You won't be disappointed until you hate heat in your food.

Went with a friend Friday evening, and didn't have much of a choice since they are one of a few to stay open after 10pm. The calamari appetizer was terrible--rather than have the dipping sauce on the side, they mix the sauce with the calamari, and it was greasy and the sauce overpowered the calamari. I ordered the 8oz new... More

We had been looking forward to our dinner at Sullivan's for quite some time. I had heard that their steaks were absolutely the best in the valley. Our server made the evening a bit challenging. My father-in-law ordered an extra dry gin martini on ice. It came in a 10 ounce tumbler. The waiter apologized that it did not come... More

Love Sullivan's. Always eat here when in Palm Desert. Market salad was really good then had the rack of lamb with mint jelly. Very tender and flavorful. Mint jelly isn't listed on menu so you have to ask for it. Goes perfect with lamb. Have had the filet with peppercorn sauce also outstanding. Service is real good too.

We were initially concerned because, while the bar was packed, there was almost no one in tha restaurant. Well, that was because we were early. By the time we finished the restaurant was busy too. The crowd... More
