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.

I booked this restaurant based on Opentable review rating. It was the worst place I could've possibly ever taken customers to. EVERYTHING was TERRIBLE!
I would NEVER recommend this place.

Excellent prime rib, excellent clam chowder, and excellent service. Good value during the 5 to 6 pm early dinner hour.

As usual, the steaks here are very good, the service excellent. However, this time I left the place with some in satisfaction. I order a medium rare prime rib and they brought one that was almost medium (not pink). The NY Steak that my wife order was very tough, which should not be if its supposed to be Prime Meat.

This is the first time I go for lunch, and I saw that most of the customers were eating burgers or light meals. Maybe that is why our food was not at the high standard I am used to enjoy in the place.

We arrived a bit early, asked to sit in the bar for a drink before being seated for our reservation. The bar was very inviting and cozy. The drinks looked and were fantastic. We were then seated in a booth with a window were my wife and sister in law just loved. We ordered a filet mignon appetizer , fantastic. We then ordered two salads and a soup. after at least a 15 minute wait we asked each other whether our salads were coming? We had not seen our server for awhile, a few more minutes went by and our server showed up with our entrees, we told him we haven't rec'd our salads yet, he was totally surprised. We ended up with eating our entrees and salads together, a bit awkward . Our server comp'd our salads & soup, but the mood of the night had been altered! The food was fantastic, but this service hiccup did change our overall mood.

Our family been celebrating special occasions at Sundance for the last thirty years, and we have always had an incredible dining experience. The food is delicious, the service is impeccable, and the atmosphere is warm and inviting. Sundance offers a perfect product and a memorable experience that lasts long after the meal is finished...

Thank you for a good evening. We came to celebrate my husbands birthday and enjoyed a nice steak. We ordered the filet mignon. Everything was delicious.

High quality food and ambiance. Took over 45 minutes to get our dinner with no explanation from the severs. Other than that, a good night
