Steakhouse
What's better than a fine, aged wine? How about a fine, aged steakhouse that serves prime aged steaks. Where would one find such a unique combination? Located below the sidewalks of downtown Dallas at the 30 year Dallas icon, Dakota's Steakhouse.

Sit back and take in the many decorative nuances that make Dakota's still one of the most romantic spots in Dallas. Outside the restaurant, the multi-level waterfall, draping foliage and black granite patio bar make dining outdoors a delight. Inside the restaurant, the New Orleans lamps and imported marble floors neatly package the classic theme.

I went for the first time for my 50th Birthday. Staff was friendly and welcoming. The tables are close together so you kinda have to squeeze by others to get to your table. The service was very good. It was very warm that evening so at times had to wait little bit for water refill. The food was excellent and enjoyed. Little noisier then I expected but overall was a terrific experience. Food and service was very good.

Upscale restaurant with high-quality food, you get what you pay for. Side dishes are large enough for 2 people. Patio seating is wonderful for late evening and quieter than inside.

I guess when I noticed the weeds taking over and the shrubs not manicured in their scenic outdoor area with the featured waterfall, I should have gotten a clue. I had the bone-in ribeye and it was too tough to eat. My husband had the KING crab legs and was served the joints of the crab on a half of a crab leg. We complained and the manager stated "that's our crab legs." He did finally bring out another order of crab legs only this time there was NO crab leg just the joints of legs being passes off of CRAB LEGS which was what we complained of in the first place. Next thing we know they have removed crab legs from the menu for the night (we got there at 5:30 when they opened so it's not like they ran out. We ordered oysters on the half shell and they were good. I do not recommend the mushroom side as they were VERY dry and seemed over cooked as well as salty.
The coconut pie was outstanding and we were given glasses of champagne for our anniversary when we first sat down which was impressive; just a shame the main course was such a disappointment.

We visited Dakota’s for my wife’s 40th birthday. The food was absolutely Amazing. We had Calamari, Tuna Tartar, Ribeye, Filet, NY Strip, and a high end cut similar to Kobe.

Ashley A took great care of our party of 6 and gave us great advice on where to go after dinner. We will visit Dakotas regularly.

Thanks for a great experience!

To my fiancé there for her Birthday. Hands down the best restaurant experience I’ve ever had. Our waiter Kyle he was such an awesome waiter. Very attentive, and quick to respond to a question, and quick to bring out whatever we asked. I will highly recommend this Restaurant. From the Valet Parking to the Hostess to the Piano music to the dim lighting to the quietness of the Restaurant. Just a really awesome experience. Thank You so much. My fiancé loved the experience too!

We celebrated our daughter’s 16th Birthday with a few of her friends. From the moment we arrived, the staff took great care of us and did everything possible to make it a memorable night. Kyle was an outstanding member of the waitstaff and really went over and beyond. Thank you for a wonderful evening!

The experience was great. The food was on par with most other steakhouses in Dallas. The service was exceptional and even after sending two steaks back due to charring, they treated us very well. Would recommend the experience to anyone.

Top notch, everything from Valet to Leaving. Our waiter did not like our style, but he did his best to be friendly. I am sure he wanted to move us along for income purposes, which I understand. We like to enjoy a wine and talk for 15 minutes before we order. We typically take up a space for an hour and a half. We always dress up, which most do not anymore. We have 3 restaurants we dine at regularly over the past 10 years. The staff knows us by name at these restaurants and service is stellar. We plan to put Dakota's into the mix, so as time passes and we get to know each other, things will get better. The manager was terrific and very inviting. Stopped by a couple of times to see how we were enjoying our dining experience. I believe he appreciated that we were well dressed. "like the old days", lol We really enjoyed the experience, food, and ambiance.

From Jamie up front, to our adroit servers, to the extremely talented piano player - exceptional total dining experience...and the best dry aged bone-in ribeye I can recall. I highly recommend Dakota’s for special occasion celebrations or dates.
