Sundance The Steakhouse
Always outstandingI always enjoy my meal at Sundance. The wait staff always ensures we have a great time and are very friendly.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMWe had a very long wait forWe had a very long wait for a special table. We were given very nice trays of appetizers for the six of us at no charge. It was worth waiting for a quiet table in a private room. A waiter sang a birthday song to my son. Two couples split dinners with no problems. We were also given a free ice cream for a guest who was allergic to nuts. This was altogether a good experience, and the food was very good.5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMBest prime rib experienceBest steakhouse in the area. Outstanding prime rib!5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat prices for the food.I'm bad at reviews.
But I think you are getting what you pay for here. The quality of the cuts are great considering what you pay for.
I don't know if I should be comparing to other steak houses like black angus and outback, but I am going to use that as a bar.
A bar that this place exceeds very well in the quality of their meats. Considering you pay more, you'll definitely get a more satisfying steak.
The ambiance wasn't that great in my opinion, the night I went they were playing some elevator music. It felt awkwardly out of place compared to the scenery.
I'll comeback to this place.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMNice for a special occasionWe went for Mother's Day weekend 2013. Took our daughter for her 1st Mother's Day dinner. Food was excellent staff professional and very accommodating. Prices were great. They had an early bird special which runs from 5-6 and an extensive menu to choose from. Very good wines. Icing on the cake is their Mud Pie which is the best I've had I a long time. I highly recommend this restaurant.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMA bit too loud but great food.Went on a Wednesday night, 6:45pm , party of 3 with reservations. We were seated in the middle of the floor which wasn't the best. This is a busy restaurant with lots of "business meetings/parties". It (the large loud groups of people) sort of ruins the fine dining atmosphere/ambiance. The food itself (steak and seafood) is delicious.
Wait staff and bussers were kind and polite. Hostesses need a bit of work on being more polished and giving a professional presentation.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMGood steaksGood steak and lobster. Good crab cakes. Busy and a bit noisy. Wines pricey and corkage $25. Didn't feel we could hang out at the table and talk, though they didn't run us off. Try the Menlo Grill.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMWe keep going backWe continue to go back again and again just to have a nice dinner or for any special occasion. We are never let down and always just as pleased as the last time. We will be eating here again next week for another birthday celebration.5/8/2013 12:00:00 AMA Must TryAlthough it is on the small side- the restaurant gives the illusion of being a large space with many nooks and crannies. The last time we were there I had the most delicious rack of lamb I have ever tasted. My son said this restaurant serves the best steak hands down. This time, although disappointed there was no lamb - I had the shrimp which were delicious as well.
The waiter was helpful and well versed in the menu selections - but hurried us through our meal. The busboys were attentive and kind..There was some confusion when we came in between us and another party - but quickly resolved.
I would recommend highly to friends and we will return to Sundance again. Love it.5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent in every aspect!Our waiter, Luke, was fantastic. He knows about each dish and asks all the right questions. Wonderful meal for all 4 of us (Rib-eye, prime rib and pasta dishes)5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMPrime Rib is the way to go...I try prime rib everywhere I go and have to say that this is the best prime rib I have found in South Bay. This steakhouse specializes in prime rib and you need to go early or confirm they still have it, as the restaurant tries to accommodate even the later groups with prime rib, but it is the most popular item on the menu...and can end up 86'd for the evening.
I like the fact that they add a starch and vegetables on your plate included with the order. Many nicer steakhouses make you order the sides family style and you end up paying more.
What are you waiting for? It's worth the trip.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMStellar experienceWe chose to sit at the bar to watch the Giants game. Bartender was exceptional. My Manhatton was perfect, service exceptiona, and the food was hot and perfect!! Excellent experience!!!4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMwelcoming, flexible. Providedwelcoming, flexible. Provided extras that made the evening feel special.4/21/2013 12:00:00 AMMy #1 SteakhouseGreat food, great atmosphere, excellent service, this restaurant checks all the boxes. I have been to a lot of steak houses but Sundance sets the bar so high that there is no reason to go anywhere else. Definitely have the clam chowder, it is the best!!4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMI Live in the east coast andI Live in the east coast and always make a trip to Sundance when visiting the area - mostly business related experinces. I have never been disapointed. Exellent experience. I have even closed the place down (once)4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMEarly dinner dealI skipped lunch to take advantage of the before 6PM dinner deal. My group was seated promptly in a nice booth at the front. The waiter was courteous and the warm sourdough bread came quickly and was tasty. I ordered the calamari appetizer which was lightly breaded with a tangy dipping sauce which we all enjoyed. I ordered the prime rib, fully loaded baked potato and Sonoma salad. The prime rib was a bit undercooked and one of us sent it back. The steak skewers was a generous portion and the quality of the prime rib and steak was very good. The sonoma salad and ceasar salad was tasty and a good size. Overall very good food in a quiet, intimate setting. It was a Saturday night and the food came a little slowly. Definitely a good deal.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMIf you need a great steakhouseIf you need a great steakhouse this is the place to go! Celebrated hubby's birthday AND being cancer free! Exactly what he "needed", a great steak!4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Service... We LovedGreat Service... We Loved how that waiter came with our desert and sang us a Nat King Cole Song "Always" for our 18yr wedding Anniversary... made this night extra special...Thanks4/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOur visit time at SundanceOur visit time at Sundance Steakhouse and found it very good; definitely will return.4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMI always know that if we goI always know that if we go to Sundance for a night out, we won't be disappointed. They always rise to the occasion. Great food, great service. A bit pricey, but we love it!4/7/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've eaten at Sundance forWe've eaten at Sundance for many years and continue to love the food and the ambience. It's a gem and NOT owned by some remote corporation. It's always consistent with food quality, atmosphere and service.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband was craving forMy husband was craving for good prime rib. Since it was a Saturday night and it was rather late (8:30), our server immediately asked who was having prime rib so he could rush to the kitchen and make sure that our portions were reserved for us before coming back to take the rest of the orders. The sourdough loaf was served warm (almost hot!) was delicious. The seafood that we ordered, from the perfectly chilled raw oysters on the half shell to the seared ahi tuna to the halibut (special for the evening) was deliciously fresh. The prime rib was excellent and cooked to perfection.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOur group of five old friendsOur group of five old friends were seated in a secluded booth which was wonderful for conversation because it was quiet, but the servers kept forgetting us and we waited close to half an hour before getting drinks and ordering. Everyone enjoyed their dinner choices - prime rib and salmon, and the salads were great. I especially liked the one with arugula and strawberries. We would request this table if we were to go again, but would let the server know when seated that we would appreciate not being forgotten off in our corner.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is THE place for AmericanThis is THE place for American style food. The service staff knows what they are doing. The menu is excellent with a really good range of dishes including fish and meat, all at very reasonable prices. I enjoy going there!4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food is always outstandingThe food is always outstanding at Sundance. I'm hearing impaired and they always manage to seat me in one of the front booths so I can hear the conversation.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food but dress warmLove the restaurant. Love the food. Go back quite often. Dress warm, however, as they have many tables that are very cold and drafty due to their AC.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMVery enjoyable experience.Very enjoyable experience. Food was very good; waiter attentive without being intrusive3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMSundance - great a usual!Cant get enough of Sundance. The food is consistently excellent, as always; great service. We were a party of 4. Three of us had the Prime rib which was great as usual, but the pest was the Kobie beef special. I never experienced a better steak than the Kobie.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis has become one of myThis has become one of my favorite restaurants because it has never once disappointed. One of the servers named Luke, really makes the dining experience at Sundance exceptional...to the point where I request him everytime.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMI have been a few times andI have been a few times and have always thought the prime rib was the best anywhere. When we went this time, I was a little disappointed in the prime rib. Everything else was great, but the prime rib was not as tender or flavorful as it was the last few times I went. It wasn't bad, just not amazing (which you kind of expect from a prime rib specialty restaurant when you are paying 30-45 just for your entree). Fantastic service, great drinks, etc though.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is our seccond visitThis is our seccond visit to Sundance Steak House and had another enjoyable time! My husband loves your prime rib!
We'll save you for special occassions !3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMOur second visit was equallyOur second visit was equally as enjoyable as the first. The "Sunset Special" is the best deal in town. It draws a huge crowd, but you never feel rushed. Quality and portion of entrees excellent. Highly recommend to others and can't wait to return.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMSunset Dinner Menu is excellentI brought my wife here for her birthday. We got here just around 5pm to catch the Sunset Dinner. She got the slow roasted prime rib and I got the sirloin steak. Both were excellent, and are highly recommended.3/27/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a pure surf and turfThis is a pure surf and turf restaurant with a "guys-guy" atmosphere, including vintage hunting and fishing apparatus on the walls, and dark colors with dim lighting. It is perfect for taking engineering groups or clients who want meat! They do meat and fish well, and have pretty much any combination of surf and turf you may want, with all the basic sides, and they do not skimp on flavor or quality. The waiters are very friendly, old school style, and they get food out quickly and accurately. Their cocktail, beer and wine lists are fairly standard, but they serve standard fair cocktails well (such as Martinis, Manhattan, etc.) Vegetarians can order pasta and/or salad.3/25/2013 12:00:00 AMWe've been searching for aWe've been searching for a new steak restaurant and a new fish restaurant for some time [loved Cantankerous Fish in Mountain View :( so sad it changed]. We were very pleased that the Sundance Steakhouse in Palo Alto fit the bill so well for both. It is our new favorite restaurant, period.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went for my hubby's b-dayWe went for my hubby's b-day and I had put on the reservation that information. It was very nice that they delivered him a slice of mud pie with candles on it to him and even better that he was surprised. We also brought my 8 year old and she loved her dinner. She hasn't been anywhere before that had prime rib on the kids menu - yum!3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious as always.Our meal was fabulous as always. Nobody's Prime Rib even comes close to Sundance!3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOld school kind of place.Old school kind of place. Dark interior.

It was a Tuesday night and the restaurant was packed, but we could actually have a conversation. With the restaurants different seating locations, it is not noisy. We love this restaurant.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time there. 41st weddingFirst time there. 41st wedding anniversary was made special by your staff.3/17/2013 12:00:00 AMAlways great food!Sundance is always consistent with their food. I love their Prime rib dinner. I went there to celebrate my dad's birthday. When I arrived at the restaurant I asked the waitress if she would be able to bring some type of dessert for my dad. After our meal, she brought out a slice of Mud Pie with a candle lit and extra forks for us to share it. It was delicious!3/16/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent as always. OnlyExcellent as always.
