When travels brings me to the Palm Desert area, I make plans to have dinner at Sullivan's. There were 6 of us and we all enjoyed a great KOne Martini to start of the evening. We had the Calamari for an appetizer and the tuna. More than we need but it didn't stop us from eating. Broiled Salmon Roosevelt is... More

Wanting to celebrate a birthday, we went because of it's fine reputation. Sea Bass was outstanding although waitress was more interested in talking to your crowd rather than being attentive to us older folks!

Wanted to initially go into bar on a Thursday night. No way that was happening. It was packed so we had dinner instead in the dining room. Service was good and my husband liked his filet and au gratin potatoes. I just had tuna appetizer which was tasty too. Overall good experience.

Quite an older crowd here. We were asked several times if we were celebrating a special occasion which we were not, but must be the norm here. Servers are young and eager but a bit too inexperienced at times. Food was ok, strip steak not the best but not the worst we've had. Crab cake was pretty good, coffee not... More

We chose Sullivan's because the menu was a little more diversified than other steakhouses. I like steak and my wife likes seafood. We started out at the bar for Happy Hour and the wine prices were very reasonable and it was very busy. The calamari appetizer was superb and my steak was perfectly seasoned and cooked to medium rare. My... More

Sullivan's steak house is one of the places that you go to because you know it will be good and when you are in the mood for steak, it's the place to go. It's mid range in price, located in the heart of the shopping district and has a great upbeat atmosphere. What more could you want. I love their... More

This is our favorite spot to hit for Happy Hour in the Desert! Great live music, awesome food, service and drinks! the Knockout Martini is a must. Just be careful, it's true to it's name if you have too many. I also recommend their chips with blue cheese drizzle as an appetizer.

Ok, so there is no shortage of great steakhouses in the Desert, Morton’s, Ruth Chris, Vicky’s, Maestro’s, and many others. Sullivan’s is more fun, not so stayed and boring. No wood paneling, a great people watching, socializing kind of steakhouse with a beautiful glass enclosed wine cellar. Open kitchen serves great steaks, and the sides are amazing as well. They...

From start to finish, just amazing service, food and value. Hit the bar just after 5 for happy hour which runs 3 to 6. Then went in for our 6pm reservation. 4 of us. Waiter was Caesar, helper was Evan. Just phenomenal service. Brett one of the managers was also helping tremendously and was at our table a few times... More
