We had the 8 ounce filets- the medium was medium rare, the medium rare was rare.
The creamed spinach side was very good and the mashed potatoes good but be aware it had some horseradish in it or so it seemed.
The wedge salad was good.
The key lime pies not good- way too heavy.
The sides are enough to be split.
We ate early at 5:00PM and the restaurant was cold.
Server was attentive and efficient.

We've eaten here several times. One of my favorite local steak houses. Food exceptional. Service to notch. Always in our to choices.

Easily the most romantic date atmosphere for adults in downtown Naperville. It is fine dining, so be prepared for roughly a $50 per person minimum, before drinks, but it certainly is somewhere my wife and I love to venture to for celebratory occasions.

Best Menu Items - Shanghi Calamari appetizer as well their Banana Fosters dessert.

This was a special dinner out for us so we didn't mind spending more than usual. Good thing, because the a la carte menu is outrageously over-priced. The all inclusive menu was better, and had a nice variety. The atmosphere is lovely, nice lighting, comfortable seating and beautiful holiday decor. Our waiter was outstanding, all of the service was great. The steak eaters in our party loved their steaks; and the non-steak eaters loved their seafood. You don't always get great options at a steakhouse, but this one had plenty to choose from and it was all delicious. We would definitely go again, but will have to save up for it!

We were a group of four for Thaksgiving dinner for a mid-afternoon reservation. When we arrived, the restaurant was already about two-thirds full even at this early hour. The hostess seated us exactly at our reserved time. The first disappointment is that we were seated at a table that was adjacent to a service station and was a bit cramped. We asked if there was another table, we were told no but were offered a booth which we could not use because one of our party has a disability and would not fit into a booth. So, we stayed with the table. Our server promptly introduced herself and took our drink order. Drinks were done well. While we were conversing, one of the support staff came by with a basked of bread and hurriedly placed it on the edge of the table. As he walked away the basket fell to the floor because of the careless way he placed it...we called to him but he was out of earshot. Another staff member came by and replaced the bread basket for us.
Then things got better. Our server took our order, got it perfectly accurate, served it properly and gave us prompt but unhurried attention throughout our time at the table.
We each had the special thanksgiving day turkey dinner whih was done well. We had choices of salads, sides and desserts. The Sullivan's wine list is extensive and offers good selections at a wide range of price points. We found one that was suitable to our tastes. Overall we were quite pleased with the experience with a few nits that kept this from being a top notch review.
By the time we departed, the restaurant was completely full. This Sullivan's location offers valet parking. Because of the holiday and relatively early hour we found nearby street parking. But generally there is no street parking to be had as downtown Naperville is generaly quite crowded.
