Well you've read that they have slipped a bit and sad to say it's true... They were out of filets and wagyu... asked for a booth and was given a table despite birthday notification and saw several booths that were never used during our visit. No mention of birthday except standard placard, not that a dessert is required but it seems others received from the pix on open table...herb chicken was dry. Shrimp cocktail tasty but small for 20 bucks. On the good side, cowboy ribeye was nice, blackened as asked for and service was fine. For the price paid probably not returning... A shame cuz this place used to be proper. You've been warned again...

Like everywhere else, they are understaffed at this time, so our dinner took over 3 hours. Didn’t get drinks for more than 30 minutes after being seated. Nice waitress, did her best. Just a tough time for restaurants now with staffing. Food was terrific! Nice wine list.

Been coming here for years … was a disappointing dining experience this time … drinks came after appetizers, petite filet was sinewy and we requested a booth and were told that they needed to seat us at a table due to spacing waiter tables. 5 mins later another couple seated in a booth. Disappointing dining experience for a 5:45 pm seating for 2.

Not the same as before. Sullivans has lost it's high end steak house feel. Sat at the bar for 10 min. before a bartender popped behind the bar. Messed up both drink orders. Went to the table and was told no seafood or fish was available "due to the chef saying the seafood came in bad and he wouldn't serve it". I don't know what was up with that. We had a crappy NY strip and and decent filet. Ordered the brussell sprouts that were swimming in some kind of liquid. Looked like sink water. Not impressed. Just not crazy about this place anymore.

We went to dinner for our wedding anniversary and had a fantastic experience. We were seated at a comfortable booth with rose petals on the table which was a very nice surprise. Our food was brought out promptly and cooked to perfection. The waitress and her staff did an outstanding job. No complaints! I would go again and again.

Pleasant early evening dinner at a table which was comfortable and the ambiance was also nice.. I liked the Caesar Salad with Salmon. Cheddar potatoes with bacon was great. My husband had Sea Bass and liked it.. My friend went back to Florida but he spoke of the restaurant fondly today and enjoyed the fish he ate.

Very disappointed and probably will not be going back again to This restaurant. We have been going here for many years. The menu was extremely limited and the online menu did not reflect what the actual menu was. Every item that I wanted was not available. Food was just ok and definitely not worth the $500 bill. Service was very slow as well. I feel like this restaurant has really gone downhill. What a shame.

My wife’s birthday and everything was tops.I notified restaurant on open table about birthday and first thing that greeted us was a cute birthday greeting.Nick our waiter was about the best ever.Extremely attentive and friendly.Just a great personality.We ordered the 6 oz. filet from the pre fix menu and they were perfectly cooked and delicious.Since it was a special occasion we were served a generous portion of ice cream .How great was that?
Have been going to Sullivan’s for years and when you have a waiter like Nick and everything is super no reason to change.Will be heading back in October for our 52nd wedding anniversary.

Dinner was Excellent! The food was perfect, service was great. You can see a big difference in the management between the old Managing Partner and the New Managing Partner. A lot of the little details seem to slip by the new manager. We also do not see him walking around to make sure everything is perfect. Sullivans seems to have lost the Crisp professional atmosphere we always got in the past. Hopefully the manager starts adapting to the Sullivan tradition.

It was my friend’s birthday. The free birthday dessert was the best part of the meal.

They still do not have crab cakes. They also do not have non-alcoholic beer. The filet mignon was good but very expensive with no side unless you pay for a side.

Sullivan’s is always so consistent. Outstanding steaks, fabulous sides, and to die for dessert! On the occasion of my husband‘s 50th birthday, Sullivan‘s did not disappoint. Tamara, our server, was amazing and on point. We will not only return again soon, but we will certainly ask for her to be our server as well.

Below their normal standard. Bar was out of Bulldog, Grey Goose and Maker’s Mark all on the same night? Set a bad day and be from the start. Also, creamed spinach was much too cheesy. Some waiters wore masks while others didn’t. And we f those that did, wore them wrong by not coveting their nose. Have to question management’s control and policy.

When we are in Wilmington, we always dine at The Sullivan's Steakhouse. However, this time's dining experience was not up to its previous standards. We were greeted very courteously by the two hostess and we were seated quite promptly to our table. However, once seated our server came over introduced himself, asked if we were there for a special occassion - which we were. Yet, he didn't motion any interest what so ever. We placed our appetizer order, which were phenomenal - Highly reccmmend the shrimp eggrolls. Later on, we placed our main entree orders, I decided to add a cocktail to the order....seems like he was annoyed, I ordered it later in the order. Our entrees were done precisely well, yet our server really was very absent throughout our dining. In past experiences, we have always looked forward to the outstanding service from the servers.

We come here often so we were especially disappointed. Our waiter rarely visited our table so we never were able to order another cocktail or coffee at the end. Our filets were insultingly small … we order them every time so we know what to expect, but our waiter wouldn’t know since he never came to check. I asked for spinach which never came. We were in need of a nice night out but Sullivan’s didn’t deliver.

The main courses were excellent. Let me start there. The salad was fresh and crisp, we also liked the spicy kalamari. The french onion soup was charred black at the sides.

My beef is with the value and the service. At fine dining prices, the service people should be trained in fine dining. They were not. Beginning with pouring water into wine glasses. Then pouring red wine into white wine glasses. Then bringing butter and leaving us with no butter knives (and no other knives) at the table, until requested. There was no change of silverware between courses. And I could go on. When entrees are priced between $30 and $50, fine dining service is expected. The sad part is that the server was actually training another server in all of the above. However, they were very polite, kind, friendly, eager to please, and brought additional bread when they saw we enjoyed it. Bread was very good. The fault is with the management (who probably also need to be trained at fine dining). I hope this review is helpful.

Menu was different then the last time due to the cost of seafood per the waitress. I was looking forward to crab cakes but they did not have crab or lobster on the menu. My husband had the cowboy steak and a side of garlic shrimp. They forgot the shrimp and it took about 10-15 minutes to get them after we already had our food. The steaks had really bad charred taste on the outside, which was a first, we never had that on our steaks here before. I had the banana foster bread pudding and I got a corner piece and it was mostly hard. The best was the warm bread, and broccoli tonight.

Server was very nice, but she forgot to bring bread/rolls, refill water glasses. I had to ask for a second drink. My lamb chops were good, but receivedthree tiny chops. For the price, you would expect larger chops or at least four chops. It was our 25th wedding anniversary dinner. We mentioned this to our server, in addition to telling open table. A complimentary dessert , for example, would have been appreciated. For a bill of $150.00, we expected more. Have been to this Sullivans many times; this is the first we were disappointed.

Our waitress was extremely efficient and timed all our food delivery perfectly. Food & drinks were superb. One minor critique - would have preferred the potatoes au gratin to be thin sliced as opposed to "chunky" - personal preference only!

$24 for a martini? Are we in NYC? Also, they were out of half the items on the menu, including bread for the table.
Finally the cappuccino was like warm milk. They have the name on the outside, but the place is a overpriced mess.

Birthday for my wife, we have been celebrating Special Occasions for years at Sullivan’s and this was our first So So experience. Some of the things I can except because of Covid like no lobster and crab for which we went for.
But service was slow, my strip steak was not up to their standards that I have had. Had a chip on the lip of my drink glass, the wrong potato came out. Not a good night for my wife and I and Sullivan’s

Thank you John Hahn
