Four of us met up at Sullivan's on Sunday night for Happy Hour. Special drinks are $7.00 and special bar menu is nearly 50% off of menu price. Food was very good, drinks excellent and service very good considering the crowd. We'll be back soon for Happy Hour and dinner.

This is a steak house and the steaks were not good. Even the potato was Luke warm. The wedge salad was very good however and so was the latte we had.... More

My dear husband took me here for Mother's Day and it was great! When we walked in, everyone greeted us with a smile and a "Happy Mother's Day". We were seated at a booth which was very nice. The menu for the occasion was a prix fixe which included one appetizer, one entree, and one dessert apiece. There was a... More

This was another highly rated ( 4+ stars) that did not live up to the rating! Food was pretty good and service OK, but it was noisy, too busy and did not evoke a quality feel. You felt like you just wanted to eat and run.

After having two not memorable dinners at Mama Gina's and Pacifica we tried Sullivan's based on our Concierge recommendation. It was much better than either of our first dinners. The Shanghai Calamari appetizer is excellent. The steaks were almost perfect. We like our steaks continuously basted so the outside does not get burnt. But this is a personal preference. The...

This was our first visit to Palm Desert with friends and they introduced us to Sullivan's Steakhouse. We started with drinks and calamari and knew early on that this would be a unique dining experience! Service was very attentive and we had difficulty deciding which entree to select for dinner. Three of us opted for the Sure Thing prix fixed... More

My wife and I decided to try this place due to all the positive reviews. Things started well as our server Courtney could not be more helpful and if she could not answer a question would go find the answer. Big plus as she would rather take the time to get a correct answer rather then wing it. My wife... More

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.
