Description: 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.

We've gone to Sundance for prime rib for over a decade. The decor (polished dark thick wood, gentleman's club) has not changed during that time, nor has the quality of the prime rib, their house specialty. So far so good. Unfortunately, the truly boring side dish options also have not changed. We wlll continue eating there, though (and have given up ordering prime rib anywhere else, because anywhere else it always disappoints compared to Sundance). Reservations highly recommended, especially on weekends and Stanford events.

Had a business dinner there and the food was very good. Would rate service as very good as well. Very popular so a little noisy.

The steakhouse impressed me. Very atmospheric, great design and entourage. It was quite crowded when we arrived.
It was a special day for us so we got the best US wine and it was truly great! Highly recommend - Opus One 2012.
To eat we had three different steaks - specialities of the place and vegetables.
Perfect meal.
Outstanding quality of meat.
See my photos made with Relonch camera to get a better impression of the place.

Excellent steak house - great food, service, ambience. Fireplace by bar in winter. Cozy & elegant. TV screens. Noise level can vary. Vegetarians won't find a lot of options here but they won't starve.

Many steak houses sell everything ala carte which drives up the bill. The meals here include lovely sides.
