Sullivan's is our go-to place for excellent steak. We like the filet mignon because the portion sizes here are so generous and the meat is so well prepared that we tend to eat every bit that is put in front of us. The atmosphere is a lively bar scene type place but it is possible to snag a quiet table... More

The Chilian Sea Bass and Crab cakes are to die for!!! The shrimp cargo is a great appetizer!!! Brandon is the manager that comes and visits all tables and has been there 8 years and... More

We are pretty boring when it comes to dining at the restaurant. We consistently order a strip steak, medium rare and salmon along with a kale salad, asparagus and scalloped potatoes. As usual our entrees and sides were prepared perfectly and were delicious. I ordered the shrimp and lobster bisque which was just OK. It was too thick and sweet... More

This popular steakhouse is located on Glenwood Avenue, the "hub" for newer restaurants in the Downtown Raleigh area. It has nice ambience, good food, and good menu. Try it, while visiting Downtown Raleigh!

The restaurant is very crowded. Too many tables for the type of restaurant .... high end. The service was poor and the cook was having a bad night. Soup was not hot and my spinach salad had too much dressing and nothing to be desired for again. My sea bass was not what I expected either. Another individual steak was... More

We recently went to Sullivan's for the first time to celebrate an event (I chose the restaurant because of positive reviews). Unfortunately the event was in my honor and I was not impressed. First, the onion soup was bland. It lacked seasoning and was devoid of flavor. Second, my steak was slightly overdone. I asked for medium and got medium-well.... More

We ate at Sullivan's during Raleigh Restaurant Week for the first time. We originally had a reservation for 7pm, but showed up at 6pm and they took us right away. Our servers Dani and Kristen were fantastic. They were very attentive and made sure our every need was met. The food was very good. The steaks were cooked perfectly. The... More

My husband and I ate here for restaurant week, the wait was a bit long, but once we were seated we were very well taken care of from that point on. The shrimp n lobster bisque needed more meat because I had a part of shrimp and no lobster. But the steak, and roasted chicken was to die for... those... More
