Better than a Burger – This is a designer burger--deep-fried angus beef and cheddar wrapped with a golden wonton like an eggroll. The inside is bursting with a creamy cheddar sauce, and the Angus beef tastes marinated with a classic worcestershire sauce.
Unlike sliders, these are easy to devour at a party without looking like an uncouth carnivore. No dipping is required. One can order this big hit as an item on their party platter.
The other food on the party platter will pale in comparison. The shrimp was no where as good these designer burgers. Also, don't bother with the cheese and crackers or the veggie tray.
Btw, Sullivan's staff did an excellent job hosting a charity party.
Steaks Don't Live Up to the Prices – For me, the best steak is a bone in ribeye. I always order it medium rare. Sullivans cooks it perfectly. The problem is that I've been here 4 times for steaks in the past 18 months and everytime the steak I got was tough and sinewy. I don't know if their buyer just can't get good cuts or they're simply not serving prime beef but I strongly recommend other Houston steakhouses including Pappas Brothers Steakhouse (my favorite), Del Frisco's, McCormick & Schmick's, and Flemings. Sullivan's is also targeting a little bit older crowd, say 40 and up so you might keep that in mind if you're a twenty-something looking for a night out. As a side note, they have a dance area that can have very good boogie music.
GREAT steak and exciting martini selection – I enjoy Sullivan's at least once per week!
bad steak – I been going to this place for 8yrs, but I just love to drinks and social atmoshere this place have. Sometime I will eat, but for the last 8 yrs, the steak have alway s...ck. They have tough steak. I alway order bone in ribeye, everywhere I go. They make you dress up. I live down the street, and I alway like to dress in jean, t-shirt and a LV tennis shoe and they won't let me in, how sad.....If you want good perfect steak and side and causal dress code, go to fleming, del fisho, and captial grill.
Better places to go – I called ahead to make a reservation for my husband's birthday. The hostess assured me we would be taken care of and asked what his favorite flavor was so they could surprise him with a souffle.
When we arrived, we waited for a hostess to appear. Once she decided to come over, she told us we could sit whereever we wanted. We were put offguard immediately, as we assumed it was a fine restaurant.
Anyways, I did remind her because it seemed a different lady took the reservation. She knew it was a birthday. I also annoucned to the waiter it was his birthday.
At the end of the meal, he provided us with a dessert menu. I was wondering where the souffle was...
He said it would take 25 minutes to make. Um, hello- why wasn't it alreday being prepared or ready?
Dissapointing! because I wanted a special surprsie for my husband! How do things like this happen? I mean we only mentioned it 3 times...
All in one! – Dining with family or just the girls... this is the place to have great dinner, cigar bar and a live band! And the outdoor patio was awesome to top of the beautiful night! Our server was always checking up on us.
Disappointing first visit – My wife and I had a very favorable visit to the Sullivans in Austin a few months ago, so we thought we would try this location for our special occasion fine dining experience in Houston. After we arrived and were seated, we had to wait for some time before we were greeted by our waitress, and when she did arrive, we had to explain the purpose of our visit (which was noted on our reservation).
Although the restaurant's ambience was found to be pleasant, when more patrons arrived, we found the room to be noisy and challenging for us to visit. We ordered the lobster bisque, wedge salad, and garden greens to begin our meal. The bisque and salads were found to be satisfactory, but not as good as we recall having had in Austin. Our entrees were crab-stuffed shrimp and a small filet mignon accompanied with sides including skillet steak mushroom caps. The shrimp was found to be flavorful, but the filet and the mushroom caps were not (in contrast to Austin.
For dessert we had creme brulee with fresh fruit, which turned out to be the highlight of the evening. This was found to be quite delicious -providing saving grace for a meal that was found to be less than what we expected for our evening's dining experience. The waitress did provide the desert gratis in commemoration of our "special occasion", which was a nice gesture.
Overall, the waitress did a good job of attending to us, and the complementary valet parking was a nice touch as well. My wife and I agreed after dinner that our dining experience did not enhance the prospect of us hastening back for an encore any time soon. We would suggest that this location explore what the Austin location's recipe was for success in the preparation of food, and try applying it here in the future.
Good food & excellent service – My friend & I had the crab cake & lobster bisque for the appetizer. The crab cake was good. However, I was disappointed w/ the lobster bisque. The bisque just didn't have good flavor. We had the Cajun ribeye & the bone-in ribeye for the entree. The Cajun ribeye was not good, very dry even though it was medium. The bone-in ribeye was much better, very good flavor. Our waiter was very friendly & the service was excellent.
"Best Service Ever"!!! – This was the first time my boyfriend and me dined at this established.We were celebrating my 27th birthday.I made a reservation for 8:30pm.The complimentary valet was nice parking the car and we preceeded inside not having to wait a long time to get seated.I could not stop looking around the restaurant in amazement of the decor.Our server was very knowledgable and has good customer service.I ordered filet mignon with grilled mushroom and a side of white cheddar au gratin potatoes while my boyfriend ordered the porterhouse steak with mash potatoes.He made the mistake of ordering well done instead of medium.It tasted burnt.However,the server as well as the managers were very proactive and made another steak.The service as well as the food was very good and I would highly recommend this restaurant to my family as well as friends.
