This is conveniently located near the Homewood suites where we stayed. Tucson seems to lack many options for just good plain food. Sullivan's fits the bill if you just want good American cuisine. Steaks, salads, sides, cocktails were great! Service was paced well with no long delays between courses. It is a bit pricey but the cost compares to the... More

Sullivan's is still a top notch steak place, but on our last visit we were underwhelmed with the quality of our steaks and overwhelmed with how much they've increased prices. The NY Strip was a bit too overdone and dry for what we requested and the Filet was just not that flavorful. At these prices, we expect perfection, and it... More

We were in Tucson at the University for the day and were looking for a "fine dining" experience. My husband asked the parking meter officer for a recommendation and her recommendation was an excellent choice. We were early, about 5:30, so were told a reservation would not be necessary, but if we had called for a reservation at 6:30, it... More

As with other reviewers we find the food and the service at Sullivan's to be excellent. However, why is the wine so overpriced? We ordered a bottle of Antinori Toscana at $57 (one of the least expensive wines on their list). Total Wine sells this for less than $15. Assuming that Sullivan's purchases this wine at less than the Total... More

Not too many places that are 'a cut above' but this one is. Great, real food, excellent service and cool bar to have a dinner all by yourself. A gem in Tucson, AZ.

The restaurant was off this evening. Food was OK, service was great as usual. If I'm expected to pay $50 for a steak it better be unbelievable, this evening it was not, nothing was special. Dinner for two was $180.00, side dishes overpriced as usual and drinks very expensive. I don't mind sending $$ for a meal but everything has... More

I visited Sullivans again for dinner with family, I decided to have dinner in the bar area instead of the restaurant, the atmosphere and the service was truly amazing, food was incredible and you cannot go wrong with Sullivans signature cocktail and extensive wine list. A must if you are in Tucson, an all round fantastic place to visit!

Ok so it's a steak place....but the Sea Bass was the star here! Wonderful, flavorful, flakey fish with baby bok choy was amazing. The staff were amazing. Everyone was accommodating and made sure that you were having the time of your life. I highly recommend it.

My wife and I each received our steaks overcooked. After sending them back and waiting 30 minutes for new steaks, they brought us the wrong steaks. We again waited, while the people we were dining with were finished with their meals and waiting to leave. Finally our steaks arrived again and were not worth the hour wait. We were offered... More
