Birthday Dinners

Dined on April 10, 2016

We went to Sullivans to celebrate our two sons birthdays. The meals were outstanding. Were so many choices it was hard to decide. The two boys were treated with desserts at the end of the meal. The waitress we had was very good. I would say she was outstanding. Verry informative and attendive. All the servers and bus people were very polite and attendive. We reccommend Sullivans highly to all our friends and family.

Dined on April 6, 2016

Slipped this time. 28oz dry aged bone in rib eye wasnt prime. Extremely fatty and gristly. Lobster and Ahi appetizer was exquisite. Had to request drink refills and bernaise was cold and gelatinous. Waiter was ordinary at best. Maître D is always amazing. All told, our whole experience, this time, wasn't worthy of the price, unlike recent previous visits.

We returned after some time away. Celebrated our wedding anniversary and ordered the fixed price menu on a Sunday evening. Quite busy. Liked the new mixed greens salad, although it was slightly sandy and gritty. Filet was delicious although a tiny serving of any vegetable would have made the presentation more attractive and the meal more nutritious. Unfortunately our server did not return to check on us until we were well into our main course. Delicious dinner but not superb as in the past. Overly priced for the product. The card and rose petals adorning the table was a nice touch.

Overall disappointed

Dined on March 12, 2016

Seated in main walkway, so a constant flow of people walking by, we were told appetizer was new to menu - shrimp in melted cheese was good by only two small crustini with it. We had to ask for bread that everyone around us already had. For a steak house, the entree was most disappointing. Filet and ribeye were both overcooked - no pink and very charred. It was extremely pricey which is fine if the food and service was top notch. It was not. We will not return.

Cocktails, Food, and Service

vip
Dined on March 5, 2016

Overall, our cocktails, bone-in rib, New York strip, and onion rings were good, but a little salty. I believe that the prices are higher than prior visits. I still miss the french cut lamb chops instead of the lamb rack with mustard and rosemary - just grilled would be fine. Please put on the onion rings back on the menu also.

Chef insistent that a NY strip was a rib eye

Dined on February 27, 2016

We are frequent Sullivan's visitors (1 to 2 times a month) and enjoy fine steaks they have to offer. This weekend we choose to go the Wilmington location. The place was hoping and I ordered a rib eye. When all our food serve, I was served a NY strip which I told the waitress right away. She took the steak and returned with the same plate and steak stating that "the chef has said that this is a rib eye which is cut in skinny long way". I shared I can clearly tell a difference between a rib eye texture and a NY strip and enjoy the juicy texture of the rib eye. She ask me to cut into it and I sure again it was the form texture of NY strip. She asked the manager to come to the table and the manager apologized and said that let me check. This time the manager went to the kitchen and said again that "the chef claims that this is some kind of rib eye". I was shocked at the poor customer service where it was clear that a customer clearly feel that steak is not correct and they choose to go back and worth to prove me wrong while my family is finishing their meal. Finally she took plate back and brought another steak (which was a rib eye :)) after my family has finished their meal. There was no apologies or any offer to have any complimentary to make up for the mistake (over my last at least 50 visits to Sullivans I have never experienced this and of service). When you spend $300 for dinner of 4 you expect a fine luxury experience. We will be back to Sullivan's but never to the one on Delaware.

Wonderful experience, delicious food.

Dined on February 27, 2016

I've been to this particular restaurant on three different occasions. Every time the experience was very similar. Fantastic food, attentive and friendly service, calm and dignified ambiance (even though the last time we were seated near a small child) My wife is a steak aficionado, the bone in ribeye is her favorite. It arrives cooked to perfection, hot, and is a top cut of meat. Not some cheap tenderized old slab of heifer. We both like our steaks Oscar style wnd the finish is amazing, although on the last visit, the Bearnaise was a little thin. The sides while priced individually are equally sumptuous. I've had the shrimp cocktail on every occasion, the shrimp are large, plump and firm. Again cooked to perfection, the cocktail sauce is a perfect compliment. Finally dessert, I am not or should I say I was not, a fan of bread pudding. The bananas Foster bread pudding is nothing short of amazing. It encouraged me to learn to cook bread pudding myself, and while I can come close, the magic that a professional chef adds, leaves mine a bit inferior. The one distraction I've had at Sullivan's. Most of the service staff are attractive young females. Attractive young females in mini dresses. It strikes me as very odd in such a distinguished environment. The girls are not dressed indecently, but just enough sexy to draw a mans eye away at times. If I could change one thing about the experience it would be a more demure dress for servers. Having said that, the service is always exemplary, attentive not intrusive, friendly but not familiar. The service just rounds out a perfect meal.

Good food, seating could be better

vip
Dined on February 21, 2016

The food was delicious and the wait staff was ok, not as attentive as I would have expected. The table we were seated at seemed to be place in the middle of the aisle and was uncomfortable as everyone who walked by, customers, wait staff, hostess bumped my purse or chair. We were also seated next to a very large table so close that the backs of our chairs touched if either party moved and the wait staff had difficulty serving both tables as our table seemed to be in the way. The only other complaint would be the 45 minute wait, why have a reservation if I waited 45 minutes anyway, we could have just as easily eaten at the bar. I feel reservations should be seated within 15 minutes of arrival and yes are entire party was present.

Outstanding

Dined on February 20, 2016

The food was amazing. Everything from appetizers to dessert was out of this world. The service was impeccable very attentive but not bothersome. We were not rushed at all even though there was a line out of the door to be seated when we left. We would definitely eat here again. It was a bit on the pricey side for our pocket books but I can't complain because everything was outstanding. Would definitely recommend, already have.

Conveyer belt

Dined on February 14, 2016

While the food and service were great the night felt like we were on a conveyer belt. One in, one out. The restaurant was packed with extra tables so as to fit more people and reservations for Valentine's Day. The staff did as they were told which was to get the customer in and out quickly. This was the first time that I have considered not coming back for another special occasion.

Dined on February 13, 2016

Food was delicious and they offered a great fixed price Valentine's dinner that included a salad, steak, side and dessert all for $62. But service wasn't great. Service wasn't as refined as other times I've visited Sullivans. The staff brought out our steaks before we were done with our salads and kind of just shoved everything onto the table. They were clearly busy because of Valentine's weekend and it seemed like they were ensuring the tables would turn over. Slight disappointment in that.
