Steakhouse
  • Good for special occasions
  • Neighbourhood gem
  • Good for business meals
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 20 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. Exceptional ratings & numerous restaurant awards rank Sundance the Steakhouse as a true dining destination.

    My wife and I have eaten at Sundance many times. The last time was during the Covid pandemic where we sat outside in the parking lot inside of a tent, but The food was still good and the service was excellent. Last night we ate inside and our party was taken care of by cash, who we’ve had as a waiter before. He always does an excellent job making sure we get what we ordered and everything‘s fine. we also celebrated our 51st anniversary last night and cash brought us something special from the kitchen to help us celebrate. Thanks for the great night out.

    We were celebrating our 43rd anniversary, so wanted something "special" -- which we received! Upon arriving, we were promptly seated at a nice table for 2 near in a smaller room (i.e., small, cozy, quieter). Our server arrived soon after and, after introducing himself, asked if we "were celebrating anything?" (yes). Our food arrived a reasonable time after ordering; warm, inviting, and exactly as we ordered. My wife had ordered the sea bass -- one of the "specials" -- cooked to perfection, with an amazing orange-based sauce. My "prime rib-eye" was a perfect medium-rare, and the "loaded baked potato" was hot with sour cream, butter, bacon and chives (YUM!). Delivered to us after dinner -- completely unexpected -- was a huge slice of their Mud Pie -- complete with lit candle -- in celebration of our anniversary (NOT charged). This is the 4th time we've been to Sundance, and each time has been "better than advertised." We're very much looking forward to our next opportunity to return!

    Sundance is by far the best steak, prime rib and fish restaurant in the Bay Area. Service is exemplary as is the food and ambience. It is a little noisey as there are often large business groups in attendance. However, everything else is so wonderful that the noise is definitely tolerable and as I go there very often it is also only sporadic.

    It was our anniversary. It is very consistent. We try to go a couple times a year. We asked for slower pace and our waiter happily obliged.

    Our waiter, Jeff, was magnificent. He knew all about food, allergies, and steered an anxious guest to the perfect dinner menu. He was very patient with another one of our guests who was rather demanding, and I would go to Sundance again just to have such a good waiter. But I’ve been there many times before. I love this restaurant. All the staff is excellent.

    I'm never disappointed with my meal there whether seafood or steaks. They have a good consistency and we had the best waiter ever. He had us laughing and never forgetting to refill drinks and to continuously keep us posted on our food , I think his name was Caz. Great dinner overall.
