Since its opening in 1974, prime steaks and martinis have never gone out of style at this Palo Alto institution. The atmosphere is very clubby with fireplaces, dark wood, sports memorabilia and plush leather booths tucked into the many nooks throughout the dining room. Famous for their slow-roasted prime rib & hand-cut U.S.D.A Prime Steaks, they also offer fresh seafood, cold water lobster tail & succulent shellfish. The 23 oz. Bone-In Rib eye Steak is the "Boss' Favorite" while the Double Cut Filet Mignon runs a close second. 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 & Sonoma Pinot Noirs. Exceptional ratings & numerous restaurant awards rank Sundance the Steakhouse as a true dining destination.

Arrogant greeting. Steaks: dry, no flavor, but very tender and aged. Waitress never asked about our satisfaction with our meal. Will never repeat and will not recommend!

I have never had a bad meal at Sundance and I have been going their for both business and family occasions since 1980. The quality of the food is unsurpassed and the attentiveness of the wait staff is wonderful.

Each plate looked appetizing. The prime rib melted in my mouth and the lobster was full of flavor. The fillet mignon was perfectly cooked, the scallops were delicious. I also loved the broccoli and steamed carrots. My husband raves about his rice being so flavorful. My baked potato was good but I had to take most of it home with me. All four of us were delighted with our dinners. I think the prices are reasonable for the quality of the food and the service was very nicely done. I will definitely go here again. This will be our new special occasion restaurant. It is obvious that the owners of this restaurant have put their hearts into their business. Thank you.

I have been going to Sundance since its opening in the 1970's. Over the years its changed from Sundance Mine Company to Sundance Steak House. The atmosphere is great but the noise level has increased over the years. It is also very crowded these days. Now it is not a good restaurant for a quiet business conversation. The food is first class and the service is above average. The prices are expensive but not outrageous .

This is a "throw-back" steak house- English Gentleman design...pleasant looking hostesses, knowledgeable waiters, busboys who keep your water glass full and bus tables quietly, meals served perfectly...WOW-

Great restaurant. Rib eye was the best as always. This place does not disappoint. One of the best in the bay area

I have been here many times with others but went by myself this week. Sometimes when dining alone you are treated like a "left over", but my server and everyone made it a great experience. Dinner was great as always. Last week recommended Sundance to a couple new to the area. They went for a birthday and continue to rave about the service and food.
