six of us went to dinner at sullivans last nite. things started out good, we hac drinks and aps and they were good but when our steaks showed up we were very dissapointed. mine could not be cut with a steak knife and no flavor, the worst $600.00 dinner i ever bought, that explanes why the place was empty on a friday nite!
Overpriced – This place was waaaayyyy overpriced! Sullivan's has a beautiful dining area and I was very excited initially...once the poor service started, it all went downhill from there. My steak was burned to a crisp. I asked for medium and it was super well. Their "Kristy's" attempt at a salad failed. Don't charge me $8 for a baked potatoe that isn't even done! Parking was rediculous! Overall I did not have a good experience!
It was...OK – Our server was prompt and friendly and the decor lovely, however the seasoning on both my and my husband's steaks were quite salty. The filling to my steak, while good, wasn't great and there wasn't nearly as much as I'd expected. For dessert, my husband's key lime pie was fabulous but my cheesecake was merely OK and I had to ask for additional topping for it since what came with it was merely a drizzle around the edge of the plate.
Overall, the meal was OK, but certainly not worth the $100+ we paid for it. Next time we'd go back to Fleming's for the price point.
Overpriced for the food. Not impressed – This was my second time eating here. The first time was not memorable. The decor and service was very good but the food was lacking for the price. The calamari was a little soggy (oil not hot enough). The oysters were good but its hard to mess up oysters on the half shell. One of our party ordered the lobster steak special for a mere $65 the lobster was overcooked. I got the fillet with fries and a side sauce, I promptly sent it back because it was cold and so were the fries. I thought they would have just heated it on the grill but I had to wait for a new one. When it arrived everyone at the table had finished eating they fillet had been cooked on such a high heat it was charred on the outside which is not good when you order rare! I also did not get my sauce, but I had given up. The bill with wine was over $400 I wont be going back. Lamberts is still my favourite place for a steak.
big disappointment – We did our research for a good steakhouse. This place tried and has great potential but failed during our visit. The service was ok - the waitress somewhat informative, but overall not so hot, had bad timing with the servers and got a few wrong orders. There were 5 of us and every one of our meals arrived only warm - NOTHING was served hot which really really was a bummer. We had to send a few things back and one of our steaks was totally overcooked. Also, all of the sides are served family style and we were advised on ordering way too much, which was a bummer because it was total waste of money and we left a ton of food untouched. The decor was nice and the atmosphere was good - but we all left with a chip on our shoulder than we spent just under $100 per person and not one person was excited about their meal once it showed up.
AVOID ON VALENTINES!!!! – If you are into waiting three hours (NOT AN EXAGGERATION ON VALENTINES) for a cold steak that was burned on the outside then i recommend eating at this place.
Great Experience – My company hosted a dinner at Sullivan's in one of their private rooms & it was fantastic. The room was beautiful, the steaks/seafood were great & the service was top notch. If you are in need of a private for a function...Sullivan's is the place!
Not the best. – I picked this place for my birthday dinner which turned out to be a huge mistake. I made the reservations for 9pm and we were seated at 945. Food came promptly, but two of the side dishes were forgotten altogether. A friend of mine ordered a 12 oz steak and recieved a 9 oz. Five minutes after he sent it back, what I believe to be the exact same steak was returned to him in a different position on his place (not to mention overcooked). The steak I ordered was good, but not exceptional for 40.00. I would have been much more satisfied going to the Belmont nearby which has totally decent steaks at nearly half the cost.
Sullivan's no uptight dining here!!!!!! – Best restaurant in Austin -Hands Down!!! In town on business and looking for a "man's steakhouse", the Hilton recommended Sullivan's. What an experience!!!! We were greeted at the door by a swarm of beautiful women who informed us of the wait and directed us to the bar. It was a Thursday night or what is obviously a big ladies night ($ 5 martinis) for the bar at Sullivan's. We walked into a bar packed with people, live jazz trio, and gorgeous women. Our bartender Lisa was quick to greet us with a smile and handshake then continued to introduce my collegues to the rest of the bar staff making us feel right at home. A few martinis later we proceeded to the dining room. What a great meal!!! The atmosphere was perfect, not your typical stuffy steakhouse. Our server Crissy had our night taken care of before we even sat down. All her suggestions were perfect, from the seafood sampler, and all jumbo lump baked crabcakes to the porterhouse smothered in gorgonzola garlic butter, she accompanied our steaks with a tower of onion rings and a lip smakin' sweet potato casserole!!! If you need to entertain, this is the spot. An experience not to be forgotten!!!!!!
