Sullivan's Steakhouse Restaurant Review: The tony atmosphere and professional, friendly staff make it easy to forget this steakhouse is part of a national chain. A clubby feel prevails in the dining room, enhanced by soft lighting and paintings. Center stage is a glass-enclosed wine cellar housing a collection of Pacific Northwest vintages. For starters, choose the sweet chili-glazed calamari or creamy clam chowder seasoned with fresh thyme. All entrées include a choice of salads; we prefer the blue cheese wedge. The sushi bar is unique to this branch, as is the large selection of nicely prepared seafood, while quality steaks are generously sized and served with a choice of sauce or flavored butters. Bone-in Kansas City strip with a bourbon-peppercorn sauce is a favorite, along with the surf ‘n’ turf pairing of filet mignon and lobster tail. Sides are à la carte, and range from creamy mashed potatoes with just the right hint of horseradish to three-cheese mac with a garlic-butter crust, and butter-sautéed mushrooms. For dessert, consider sharing the bananas Foster bread pudding topped with caramel sauce or peanut butter black bottom pie anointed with whipped cream. Located a few block from The 5th Avenue Theatre and Benaroya Hall, Sullivan’s offers a special three-course pre-show menu that includes parking.
