A buddy and I escaped for the weekend to Palm Springs and had an amazing steak dinner at Sullivan's. The decor is very Steak House classic with leather, dark wood and well appointed in every way. The first think I noticed was how very knowledgeable our server was. I regret I don't remember his name. His recommendation for the wine was spot on and he brought me a small sample to try first. I really loved my ribeye with a fantastic sauce...the potatoes and wild mushroom sides were also fantastic. The steak was cooked precisely to medium rare as requested. A word of warning. Most places will cook medium rare as a medium, but Sullivan's actually prepares it pretty pink, so watch out if you don't like your steak that rare! The creme brule for dessert was classic with a great crusty top, nice and crunchy with the perfect creamy custard beneath...If you want a classic steakhouse this is it!

Are steakhouses loud by definition? The food was very good. The portions were ample. We were feeling that our table was being "rushed" but because my chicken had been way undercooked, the manager comped my entire meal, which I did not expect and for which I am grateful. Having to wait for a cooked chicken breast, also changed the pace of the meal and we had time to enjoy the lovely space with wonderful lighting. Fully cooked, the chicken breast is absolutely, delicious. My partner's steak was very good, also.

Had drinks here at the Happy Hour before going around the corner to dine at Pacifica (see separate review). Extensive drink menu, bar bites, very knowledgeable and friendly female bartenders. Live music, good local crowd. Didn't try the food, but have eaten at a few Sullivan's steakhouse restaurants before, so know it would be good.

Wonderful place starting with an attentive staff. Great steaks, we enjoyed filet mignons after wedge salad and Cesar salad and the chocolate molten cake was outstanding. Nice ambience and noise level acceptable.

While visiting friends in Palm Desert, we had dinner at one of their favorite restaurants. There were lots of food choices and the wine list had good offerings. The ambience was pleasant and the wait staff very personable. This is the third time I have eaten here and found it to be consistently excellent.
