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.

“Treat yourself”
Reviewed 16 April 2014

Sundance is the place to go when you feel like pampering yourself (or someone special). The food's always top-notch, and the staff just seem to add that something extra to your dining out experience to make it more enjoyable.

“They do it Right”
Reviewed 9 April 2014

This place is a real classy steak house. The food is amazing. The service is fast and attentive. They have a nice bar where you sneak over to and grab a quick drink-recommend the martinis.

“Excellent meal in an establishment that cares”
Reviewed 4 April 2014

I came here with 3 friends for happy hour drink and sunset (early bird)dinner. We had a bit of a bad experience in the bar and I asked to speak to the manager at dinner. Aaron Fletcher, owner was more than interested in our experience and did his best to make up for the poor service we had in the bar. The restaurant is beautiful and warm. I had not been here is at least 10 years. The warm sour dough bread started us off and we proceeded to excellent prime rib dinners. One friend had the swordfish and said that too was wonderful. I received a follow up letter from Aron today. We will definitely come back and actually are already planning our Sundance reunion for next month!

“Not a place one would remember, but very friendly service.”
Reviewed 21 March 2014

This place seems like so many other steakhouses in America. It is definitely on the higher end of the spectrum as far as steakhouses are concerned. Not sure about the food (they start serving at 5PM), but the bar is great and the service is very friendly. If you want to start drinking early, this place is a great choice.
