Enjoyed martinis and bleu cheese chips, then we shared a summer special dinner; shrimp cocktail, wedge salad, and steak... all prepared perfectly!

Sullivan's is an excellent steakhouse restaurant located on El Paseo (second floor) in the heart of Palm Desert. It has a "lively" bar area and Happy Hour. During the winter months we dined there on two occasions having steak (filet) each time. Entrees were excellent as was the service on both occasions. We would recommend.

Most of us had the dinner special. Everything was quite good. There were a few issues with timing and at a good restaurant the food server should not have to ask who got what as they are bringing it to the table. We were all pleased with the selections and choices.
Sullivan's is a younger crowd in the desert. There is live music in the bar area. The design of the main restaurant does not afford any buffer zones between tables. So the noise level on a Saturday night is a bit out of control. We skipped dessert because we could not longer have a conversation.

We've dined at many steakhouses/restaurants claiming to provide the finest in food and service. This includes Morton's, McCormick and Schmick, and a few others. Truly they are fine dining establishments, but Sullivan's is the finest we've ever had. Everyone we spoke with, including the manager we're professional, yet made you feel right at home. The food is simply excellent and well worth the trip and cost. As the saying goes, "you get what you pay for", and in this case we paid for an evening of fine food, excellent dialogue with Sullivan's staff, and leaving the restaurant with a smile and memory of such a terrific evening.

If you're ever in Palm Desert, or the Palm Springs area, you need to treat yourself to one of the finest dining experience anywhere.
