“Good for two”
Reviewed September 22, 2013

We have checked out a number of fine-dining steak houses in the Tucson area and thought we would give Sullivan's a try. Had an adult beverage at the bar prior to being seated and enjoyed speaking with the personable bartender. We were seated in a lovely booth overlooking the entire restaurant including the kitchen area which made for great people watching. Our waiter make suggestions and answered our questions. Unfortunately my filet medallions which were ordered medium rare arrived well done. Not one to usually complain I did send it back. Upon return of my entree by the Executive Chef with many an apology it was NOW broiled to perfection. The rest of the meal was lovely and was a good value. The only complaint was the background music was rock music which took from the ambiance of this fine establishment (perhaps some softer or jazz should be in order).

“Excellent Choice for Special Night Out”
Reviewed August 16, 2013

The decision of where to dine for a special night out came down to two up-scale steak houses. Both are well known and respected and have favorable reviews, but Sullivan’s was picked based on a hunch. I had been to Sullivan’s previously for an office luncheon and was impressed by the look and feel of the interior. The luncheon food was very good considering there were about 75 people in attendance, so I figured a dinner meal would be at least as good and probably much better. My hunch paid off. The wait staff was very helpful by answering questions about the sauces- even brought me two sample to try before I made my selection. The shrimp & lobster bisque was very creamy and tasty; the Caesar salad had just the right kick of anchovy and egg. As hoped for, the steaks were excellent - full of flavor and tender. The side of asparagus was a very nice surprise. It was cooked just right, some crunch and not stringy. If you are not feeling like a steak then the sea food trio is an excellent choice. Last but not least, and if you still have room for dessert, the Crème Brule was the pièce de résistance. It was a hit with the honored guest and savored with each bite. The rest of us split a goodly sized piece of Cheese Cake and it was not bad either. All agreed the night was a success and Sullivan’s certainly will be remembered for this special night and also remembered as a place for future dining nights out.

“A popular hangout and we'll be back”
Reviewed August 1, 2013 via mobile

A good steak house with all the traditional fixings on the menu. The steak was perfect but a luke warm baked potato was not what I expected. Service is great and the wine list has great wines for every taste. The decor is a bit tired but it's warm and inviting. Reservations are suggested.
If we had more time we would have stopped into the bar / lounge / patio that offers live music. We'll be back :)

“Good food, but double-check your bill”
Reviewed July 18, 2013

The food is good, but certainly not worth the price (ribeye steak $40+). The wine is way over-priced. Twice in four visits, they tried to charge our group twice for an entrée. Once might be excused, but two out of four times suggests a pattern - not good. When these "mistakes" on the bill were pointed out to the waitress and manager on duty, their response was snooty and abrupt (not even an "I'm sorry"), further suggesting it could be common practice at this place.
