I had been here a couple times before and took my boyfriend for his first time. Everything was delicious, from the sangria flight to all the tapas. We also ordered the tomahawk, which was perfectly cooked. We were seated outside and while the weather was nice, the view was mostly of cars. Our server was amazing and so nice.

About the restaurant
After a two-year closure, Original Joe's, San Francisco’s quintessential Italian-American dining destination, revitalized iconic Daly City institution Joe’s of Westlake, and reintroduced it into the community as Original Joe’s Westlake. An anchor of Daly City from 1956 to 2014, Original Joe’s Westlake underwent an extensive two-year renovation, complete with a front-to-back interior remodel, including the kitchen and all dining spaces, and an exterior and landscaping overhaul. Following the Original Joe’s tradition, Westlake continues to prepare unpretentious, old-school Italian-American fare in an open kitchen for all to see. The menu is carefully crafted to reflect a past-meets-present hybrid of what Joe’s of Westlake used to be and what Original Joe’s Westlake is today.

I’m a returning patron, but I brought a friend who had never experienced it. She too enjoyed the meal as well.

Some of our favorites: Baked Feta, Saganaki, Calamari, Zucchini cakes, Lamb Riblets, Gigantes, Evvia Salad, Goat stew (usually available on request), Sea Bass, and cheesecake and Galaktoboreko for dessert.

Since its opening in 1974, prime steaks and martinis have never gone out of style at this Palo Alto institution.

Sundance is respected for serving the best food money can buy coupled with value & simplicity – a welcome relief for serious food & steak aficionados. The menu is supported by an award-winning wine list that features over 400 selections focusing on highly allocated Napa Valley Cabernets.
