“Steak Dinner for a large group!”
Reviewed June 5, 2014

I hosted a 16 person dinner while at convention in Chicago. The Sullivan's staff made the event easy and dinner was quite nice for all participants.
First the positives: (1) Private rooms: makes it easy for large groups (2) Wine List: good selection across all price ranges (3) Staff were professional and attentive, they seem to be well trained and made good recommendations.
Now the negatives: (1) Steaks were just average for a steak house, mine was over cooked but the waiter ordered me a new one right away (2) For the price of dinner (> $100 per person) the atmosphere in the private room was quite basic.
Overall, if you are looking for a place that can accommodate a large group on short notice Sullivan's would be a good choice.

“Soooo good!”

Food and staff were amazing! The best french onion soup and Mac and cheese we ever had! The steaks were melt in your mouth good.

“Solid, typical Chicago steakhouse”
Reviewed May 28, 2014

Nice atmosphere, white linen, good service, not fussy. Very convenient if you are staying in the heart of old Chicago along the river.
We both had steaks, which were good and prepared correctly. When in Chicago, you want to do a steakhouse. This is one option and I have not eaten at any of the other, more famous houses like Morton's. This was solid -- not "WOW" -- but certainly not disappointing in any fashion.

“Kenny gives killer service”
Reviewed May 21, 2014 via mobile

Early group dinner at Sullivan's. Five of us for a second straight night of steak. No appys except a few drinks. A few of us ordered the 12 oz. rib eye. Killer. Each seared to absolute perfection. The side of mushrooms were excellent. Server Kenny and the team made sure our glasses were full and plates taken at the right time. Three of us ordered a caramel Apple confection for dessert. Total knock out and the bill was very reasonable as far as finer dining goes. Have not been able to find a "bad" steak in Chi Town but who's really looking?

“Good food worth a visit”
Reviewed May 17, 2014

The steaks were well prepared and the menu was interesting. The service was slow and the room was noisy but this was because of the time that we visited on Friday evening.
