Steakhouse
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.

    The prime rib delivers every time. It was cooked to perfection, and the food came out fast. Perfect for a weekday lunch.

    I have always enjoyed Sundance and it's been one of the go to spots for our family for celebrations like fathers day. Unfortunately last night the service was a disappointment and I'm not sure I'll be back. Our server never offered specials or seemed remotely interested in our table. Not only that, they seemed in a rush to clean our table and cleared everyone's plates while I was still eating. They even brought dessert menus and were asking for dessert orders when I said hey I'm still finishing my meal. I don't know whether it's because we had a later seating and they wanted to close but the tables were all full and I attribute it to our server. If the kitchen was closing he could have mentioned it. This is not the kind of service I'd expect when I'm giving someone a $60 tip.

    I made a big mistake. My waiter was Juan when the bill came I left the wrong amount for a tip. I will come in ASAP and take care of that I only left qm10 percent I wanted to leave 20 percent. I'm so sorry. I didn't find my m8stake until I got home I'm sorry. I will be in soon unless there is another waumy I can give him another 10 percent he was wonderful.

    Clubby vibes, great menu. We're not huge steak eaters, but found great chicken and fish options on the menu. Servers were kind and attentive. Everything was prepared well, with large portions.
