Got really sick from the Hawaiian Butter fish, Walu. This fish is banned in many countries because it is considered toxic. Has indigestible fats in high quantity. It made me nauseous from about 2pm until I went to bed. So this is considered a junk fish that they charge alot of money for at Sundance. The waiter touted how great it was. I never had it and an hour later wished that was still the case. I looked up the fish on wikipedia and learned it was not good to eat. Called Sundance, and was told the owner would call. He never did. So I have to feel they are buying cheap fish and marking up really high. So won't be going back.

I went here for my birthday 3 years in a row, I loved it so much. I always start off with the calamari, the sauce that goes with it is great. The clam chowder is to-die-for, and the prime rib of course is awesome! Our waiters were always quick, friendly, and professional. The restaurant is pretty dark, but I never mind.

This place was great. My fiancee and I dined at this restaurant this past Saturday night for our engagement dinner. The atmosphere was great with the dim lite booths, great friendly service and delicious food. The prime rib was some of the softest I had ever had, and mud pie was a crowd pleaser. We made reservations and were seated as soon as we arrived. Prompt service.

Went here last night for an anniversary dinner. To start off, the waiter didn't visit for the first 10 minutes, my girlfriend couldn't decide what size filet to order so we said come back in 1 minute... literally 15 minutes later, after servicing every single other table, he finally took our order. I think we were ignored because we didn't order any wine, while the other tables had...
anyhow... my soup came (lobster bisque), which was very good... my gf's salad came after I finished my soup... when she finished her salad, then my scallops came (not up to par with other fancy restaurants)... so basically, we never ate at the same time... not normal for a restaurant like this...
then 40 minutes later our meals FINALLY came, oh wait... a prime rib and a small filet... hmmm, no one ordered a prime rib... bus boy takes it back... waiter returns with the prime rib.... I heard you say ""house cut""... really I said that???, bc what I actually said was filet, 12 oz. he actually starts to argue, as if I forgot what I ordered... well he says he can take it back and if I want to wait 25 more mins (already been 1.5 hrs) I can get my 12 oz filet I ordered... well I said I?ll just take this prime rib... and he said desert is on us...
well the prime rib was pretty bad, actually, I?ve had way better prime rib on cruises... it was thick and chewy with no flavor and cold au jus. my gf's filet wasn't much better, for a USDA prime piece of meat.
for desert the apple pie tasted like it was made with nutrasweet...
I never thought I?d end up writing a review, but the terrible service and marginal food brought me out of hiding. I?m new to this area but don't plan on visiting sundance ever again. I?d rather drive up to san fran and go to a reliable ruth's chris with some quality control in place.

Good food, great service, ambiance have class.
waiter was good, though made two mistakes on dishes and perhaps a little too much talking.
If you are in the area, check this place out. If you are working for the night in santa clara area and need to eat. Don't go to Nicolino's Garden Cafe as recommended by the hotels in that area. Just drive 15 minutes out to Sundance and get some decent food and service.

I had inquisitively gone there to try out the place. From the outside, the heavy wood paneling were redolent with promises of delightful and luscious steaks waiting just within. I arrived early for my reservation and was led through a well darkened oak-paneled room by a smartly-dressed and comely hostess. The booth I landed at was sparsely lit by a meager spotlight. The seemingly unupholstered bench seats were overly firm for such a steakhouse. Usually, I prefer to melt into a booth, reluctant to be removed from it.
The lobster bisque was the daily special and it was nicely done, a rather rare treat at that. I ordered the 14 ounce Shareholder's Cut prime rib medium, hoping that their largest cut would be satisfying. Then, we waited for over 20 minutes for the steak, which I thought was odd considering that a prime rib steak usually only necessitated a gentle persuasion from the main roast with a sharp knife and maybe a quick trip to the oven.
My steak arrived disappointingly small since it was $33 and the largest cut, but I suppose I'd been used to Ruth's Chris' 20 ounce cuts. Not withstanding its paltry size, the prime rib was overdone and rather too sinewy. I had expected something that would melt pleasingly in my mouth, not a piece of slightly livery and uninteresting steak. That said, it was still comparable with your average steakhouses like the House of Prime Rib. But, I was underwhelmed by the experience and for $70 a person, that's becoming annoyingly commonplace in the Bay Area.
