    The food was excellent. The service was very good. The issue is they have too many tables crammed in and minimal travel paths for waitstaff and customers, and our waiter could barely take our orders as other wait staff were continuously walking between him and the table. In addition all the patrons walking to the restroom had to go by our table since there were minimal other paths to the restrooms. It was a thoroughfare adjacent to the table it was problematice when trying to converse with the waiter.

    We were disappointed in our evening. It was very loud, over crowded to the point wait staff couldn’t hardly move around with bodies brushing against my arm all night. Expected much better food and coordination from such an established restaurant. The Wellington bite appetizer came quick and was hot though very tiny pieces of meat and long before we received drinks which were ordered first. Bisque was served barly warm and actually cool around the edges of the bowl. Tasty but not proper temp. Steak and Brussels took a very long time after the soup. First steak was a little over medium and sent back because it was ordered med rare. we did have the Brussels which we ate while waiting again. Cooking of those was inconsistent. Some warm some completely raw. When 2nd steak arrived it was not evenly cooked. There were a few med rare bites that were warm. Other rare parts that were cold in the center. We are not picky dinners and very understanding of challenges facing the dining industry but at what should have been a high end meal this was sub par. Will not likely try again. Too many consistent places in Raleigh.

    I’ve dined here many times for business meetings but this was a first for personal to celebrate my wife’s birthday with our family of 5. We were significantly disappointed with a few things but also had a couple positives but overall it failed to meet expectations and unlikely we’ll ever go back. The negatives were barely warm steaks (though cooked perfectly so likely sitting in window waiting to be delivered to our table for too long), overall clumsy service with stuff arriving piecemeal, forgetting to bring silverware, cold plates, the bisque was not good with lots of corn starch or other thickening agent, the mushrooms had some thick sauce that was not consistent with past experiences and the Brussels while delicious were shredded and a bit usually prepared. On the positive side, the filets did melt in your mouth (despite being barely warm), the BLT salad prepared table side was very good not only in presentation but also quality and they did give us a complimentary dessert for my wife’s birthday…overall more negatives than positives especially for a meal that was $500+…Sorry to say, I can’t see us going back anytime soon.

    I love Sullivan's. But this location missed the mark. At other locations, the French onion soup was outstanding. But at this location the soup lacked flavor, but was spot on when came to the cheese. We had the sea bass, lamb chops and crab studded shrimp. The seabass was just ok. My sister loved the lamb, but the stuffed shrimp was a disappointment. Not sure why they used such a small shrimp to stuff.

    Meh. I felt like I was in an IHOP that served wine. Very chain-like restaurant. It was Thanksgiving, and we gave a lot of grace to service, but I think they overbooked. I felt ignored. All of our dishes and sides came out separately and one was sold out and we weren't asked for a substitute until we asked where it was. Also, not as fancy as one would expect for the price. There were people in hoodies and sweatpants around us. You need a dress code. Very disappointing for what was paid.

    My husband ordered the turkey dinner and it was awful! First he was served dark meat that was stringy and tough. There was no gravy or stuffing. The Brussel sprouts were riced and pretty tasteless. I had the Chilean sea bass and at best, it was mediocre. We could have a better meal at a Golden Corral.

    My friend had the 3-course Turkey dinner. She reported the Shrimp & Lobster Bisque was good, but a little spicy for her. We were told they were out of stuffing, so we asked to substitute corn. She did get a small helping of stuffing and we were charged for the corn also. She thought the turkey was tough and had gristle in it. The stuffing was not good. The cranberry relish was great, as was the sweet potato casserole (I agreed). The brussels sprouts were very good. The bread came without butter. Her cheesecake was to die for. I ordered from the menu and the wedge salad was very good. The grilled salmon was excellent. The asparagus was good. The vanilla Crème Brulé was tasty, but the burnt sugar on top was too thick. The wait staff was patient and helpful.

    We had thanksgiving dinner. The food was the worst I have eaten at a restaurant in years. It appeared most people were ordering from the menu. We should have done the same. I would discontinue the thanksgiving menu until you can ensure a quality and hot meal.

    There for a Prisoner wine dinner. Dishes sounded good on the menu but not as good in execution. Set up was nice, in side room, and speaker for host discussing dishes was nice. Could have been more generous with the pours.

    We went to the prisoner wine company event at Sullivan’s. I was very excited to experience this with my husband and we were celebrating our 5 year anniversary. When we arrived the 3 hostesses were talking and I had to say something to them to even be acknowledged. I let them know we had a reservation for the event and they led us to a table with another couple. I was shocked since the event never mentioned you would be sat with other people. I went from expecting an intimate dinner with my husband to an uncomfortable situation. If it was included that we would be sat with others that would be one thing but since it didn’t I was very disappointed. Not to mention there were other couples that had tables by themselves that also attended the event. The food was amazing though and the service was average. For spending over $300 for two people I wish we could have had the experience we were expecting.

    I’ve always had a great experience here. However, I was caught off guard a little this time. Arrived for a 7 o’clock res. Took them about 15 minutes to seat us. When ordering around 7:30, was told that they were already out of one of the sides we wanted. If that wasn’t bad enough, about 15 to 20 minutes into the meal, I asked if we could get some bread and was told that they were out of bread. I realize that things happen but to have four bad things in a row is not the experience I expected, or for that matter, ever experienced at this Sullivans. More like dining at Cracker Barrel.

    We hadn't been to Sullivan's in a number of years...and I'm afraid we won't be going back any time soon. The whole experience was underwhelming, and far less special than we remembered about previous visits. It started with the hostess initially trying to seat us in a back room where there one only other party dining, despite there being many open tables for two in the far livlier and more attracting main room. Fortunately, she was able to move us to the main room. Unfortunately, things didn't recover much from there, despite the best efforts of our server Kate, who was very pleasant, friendly, and helpful. The calimari we ordered as an appetizer was tasty but drowned in far too much sauce, which we are pretty sure was the source of the inidgestion my wife and I both experienced later that evening. The New York Strip I had as my entree was good, but not spectacular, while the Ribeye my wife ordered was overcooked--she ordered it medium rare, but there was no pink inside; in hindsight, she should have sent it back. The brussel sprouts side dish we ordered was mediocre at best. The next time we want steaks for a nice dinner out, we will choose other options.

    It was a good experience overall. It was my first time dining in the restaurant. My steak came out a little over cooked, but the kitchen promptly prepared the new steak. I was a little disappointed that my partners birthday dessert wasn’t plated with the happy birthday on the plate, but once I asked for a candle, the waitress brought one out.

    From start to finish our meal was fantastic. The service was impeccable. My steak was cooked exactly as I wanted it. The bananas foster bread pudding at the end of the meal was a perfect finish. This restaurant is not cheap so be prepared to spend some money, but we didnt care at all. For my wife and I on a much needed Date Night it was perfect.

    I didn't want to write this review because this is one of our favorite places todine. I made reservations for my husband's birthday. Our server was amazing, I wish all the entrées were. In one setting, we managed to have over cooked steaks, cold sweet potato casserole, and hair in the spinach. They did offer to correct our food. We opted to just have mine done (wagu). We declined dessert due to the fact I had just pulled hair from the spinach out of my mouth. Ugh!! I hope they get the kitchen staff together. A little remodeling wouldn't hurt either.

    Dinner before a show at Duke Energy Center. Arrived for an early meal. Valet parking not set up at that time. Hostess was cordial. Waitress and assistants were polite and efficient. Seated at a booth near the wine room that allowed for a view of most of the restaurant. Wife needs to eat gluten-free and very accommodating and attentive to this need. She got the rack of lamb and baked potato and was very pleased. Ordered the filet, which was cooked to order, and the asparagus and was pleased as well. Wish they would consider grilling the aspargus to give it a little more crunch. Prices were reasonable for high-end food. No real gluten-free dessert options so passed. Nice ambience. Played fifties music in the background.

    I placed my allergy on the reservation, I called 2 days in advance, but when I got there they said "we don't have that in our system" they said they would make things right and that I could order off the regular menu. I tried to order similar to what everyone else was having because it was an experience. (By the way with the experiences you sit with other people, not by yourselves.) The food that was prefixed (my husband ate) and it wasn't good at all. Ribeye was not prime, the appetizer was used either stale popcorn, and the dessert was not made well (this I also had) the poached pear was mostly raw and couldn't be cut with a fork. I am kicking myself for not saying "if you can't accommodate my allergy my husband and I would like a table to order our own food" but I didn't want to be problematic.

    Appetizer and desserts were good but unfortunately steaks were cooked wrong (one over and one under). While we waited for the one to be cooked more and to get a new one manager came by and gave us a free round of drinks which was nice. We were not upset at this point. Then we get steaks but they had the wrong sides and no special butter I paid extra for so again I waited for that. We also ordered an extra side of potatoes and that didn’t arrive to table with the steaks. Steaks still weren’t cooked exactly right but we kept them. Quality of New York strip was not good. Very chewy and tough. Then they brought the potatoes when we were literally done with our steaks which was really frustrating. Server was nice and apologetic but he nor the manager had the sense of urgency I would’ve expected when you have a table celebrating their 25th anniversary who have had to return steaks when we were missing other parts of our meal. Why would you take steaks to the table without the side. Everything took so long so we were just sitting there getting more upset. They did comp our appetizer, drinks and dessert so I appreciate that but it was not a good experience for such a big anniversary. For what you pay, food and service not worth it.

    The red wine was warm. When you spend that much for a nice bottle of red, it should not be warm. A slight chill would have been nice.
