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.

Good dining experience-think leather booth, classic and house cocktails, satisfying classic and not-so standard steakhouse offerings served by very proper but not stuffy waitstaff.Prime rib is their specialty but the filet mignon is my usual go to steak. You get 2 ample sides with every steak dinner.The calamari is an excellent appetizer choice.Steak entree,an appetizer and a glass of wine will set you back $100 on average.

We thoroughly enjoyed our evening at Sundance The Steakhouse. The bar and restaurant are very warm and inviting and the staff was friendly, knowledgeable and provided excellent service. The Ribeye and Prime Rib were cooked to perfection and served with all the delicious accouterments. We will definitely visit this wonderful restaurant again on future visits to Palo Alto.

This is one of our regular restaurants in Palo Alto. We usually get reservations but in a pinch, it's not bad sitting in the bar area. We always get the prime rib and it's almost always excellent. I don't love the wine list - you can't really get a decent glass, and even for bottles it's hard to find something good for less than $80. But overall the food and great service keeps us coming back.

Sundance is a fixture and it never fails to deliver - excellent food and thoughtful service. Most recently we came here to celebrate my birthday, but I have been here as part of a group taking advantage of their early bird special, for several years and we always come back because of the excellent food and service.

Went to dinner last week with two friends. A "thank you" celebration. Ordered the same dinner I have had before, but this time the meat was "tough" - also, asked for medium-rare, but meat was very rare. My guests ordered food and rather than complain, I ate what I could. Maybe 1/3 of the meat. Brought the rest home but couldn't eat it. Very Frustrating ! May try them again, but won't hold my tongue next time.
