We absolutely LOVE Sullivan's, and Raleigh is hands down the best in the chain. We never miss a chance to eat here when we're in Raleigh. (We also always visit Sullivan's in Charlotte, but it's not as good. ) The Shrimp Cargot is better than escargot! Tonight, Devin was our server and she was awesome. Very efficient! Brian, the manager,... More

Received email marketing $49 Summer Fling. Gave it a try. Worth every penny. We were served by Danielle who was attentive, well versed and professional. The filet was cooked perfectly and lobster tail delicious. We'll we back.

This great restaurant is on the middle of the activity on Glenwood...the thriving bar scene. They have a great bar and a fantastic menu...but very pricey. You can get comparable atmosphere at 42nd st oyster bar but not the steaks. Their steaks here at Sullivan's are amazing...if you're willing to pay the price.

We are usually pleased with dinner at Sullivan's but this time there a few problems. The biggest of them was that all of the steaks were undercooked, medium rare and medium orders all came out rare. We were all hungry enough that we decided to go ahead and eat them anyway. I'm guessing since it was restaurant week that the... More

Sullivan's has lost its edge. I can only justify going nowadays during the nights of $7 bar specials. The bar service is usually terrible. I speculate the servers that are poorly qualafied for the dining room are banished to the bar area. The past few times I ate at Sullivan's I had to beg for waters, entrees were delivered less...

Expect a wait at the bar here even if you have a reservation . Been here more than a few times and this seems to be the drill. Staff here is pleasant but on a recent weekday evening all of our party of three needed to send steaks back for over cooking or wrong sides. Watch your bill for incidentals.... More

Sullivans was a unique experience. We sat at a booth facing the kitchen. The service was good. The food was excellent. Our steak was perfectly cooked and delicious.

This was great food and great service from Leo. ProTip: get an early reservation. Bar was full at first-come basis. Reserving with an early time virtually guarantees your table will be ready when you arrive. My wife and I visited during Restaurant Week. She ordered from the fixed menu because the food she wanted was there and a great value... More

We dine at Sullivan's regularly for almost all special occasions. This occasion was for my wife's birthday. We ordered the French onion soup, kale salad, au gratin potatoes, salmon and a 12 oz strip steak. Both the salmon and strip steak were prepared perfectly and delicious. Our disappointments were in the details. My wife specifically asked that bernaise sauce be... More
