The shrimp and lobster bisque while tasty lacked pieces of shrimp and lobster. Had the filet mignon which was very nicely cooked. The sides of mushroom caps and potatoes au gratin were hot and flavourful.

Good atmosphere and good service.

Sullivans consistently delivers a quality product. On a recent visit decided to forego the steak and try some seafood. Oysters Rockefeller as a starter followed by the pan seared Seabass. Paired up with some 2016 Rombauer Chardonnay and start to finish the meal was perfect. Our server Yvette was sensational. She is not only a great server but very knowledgeable and engaging. Live music in the bar area is a plus and adds to the experience.

We love Sullivans. The staff is very attentive, and the kitchen is ready to accommodate all food changes. I wanted the sauce for my salmon dish on the side, and wanted to not have any pepper on my food--no sweat!! My husband had the Ahi Tuna choice and loved it. We ate on the patio for the first time, and loved being there as the restaurant was absolutely sold out because we ate there during Fashion Week on El Paseo, and people came from the food and fashion events to the restaurants. Everything is fresh, and deliciously prepared. The liquor is priced very fairly. We are always very pleased after having meal at Sullivans.

As travelers, we were unfamiliar with Palm Desert Happy Hours. Sullivan’s was recommended by a local native, so we decided to try it out. Most days, Happy Hour runs from 3-6, but on Sundays, it runs from 3-Close. A list of appetizers, cocktails, and wine are all $7 each. There is also a bar food menu for regular prices. We each had a Moscow Mule off the cocktail list. We shared Beef Wellington Bites (to die for!) (3 each) and also shared a meat and cheese plate with wonderful salamis, five kinds of cheeses, olives, pickles, prosciutto ham, and more. For $28 plus tip, we both left full.
There is also a full service restaurant which is pricey. We saw a sign at the entrance advertising a three course meal for $85 per person.

We came in for a drink and stayed for 2.5 hours listening to this father and son duo. They play Motown, Prince, jazz and other artists perfectly. Sullivan’s has always had great food and a great bar. We have been coming here for 15 years but never heard music this great.
