Great first experience at Pat Gallaghers 527. Our server, Andrew, was knowledgeable, attentive, and never rushed us. I had the yellowfin tuna (cooked just rare+) with diver scallops and it was divine. Seriously some of the best tuna and scallops I have ever had. My wife got the blackened speckled trout off the specials menu and it was good but not particularly mind blowing. The only thing I was disappointed in was the lack of creative sides to accompany the entrees. We enjoy trying new foods or new ways of preparation that most high-end restaurants offer and that was not offered. But even so we will definitely be back for the tuna and scallops if nothing else.

Covington
About the restaurant
Open since October of 1990, The Dakota has been a pioneer in the culinary industry on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. Their cuisine is influenced by the flavorful Creole cuisine, with Contemporary Louisiana. Other influences include the Southwest, California, and Asia using fresh local and seasonal ingredients.
The carefully selected wines pay tribute to the well crafted wines of North America while offering many of the traditional Old World styles of Europe.
In October of 2023, The Dakota moved to its new location in Historic Downtown Covington...just a block from the iconic Southern Hotel.
The Dakota continues to set the mark for what people look for when they dine – well crafted food, detail-oriented service, plush surroundings, and genuine hospitality.

This was not our first time at Dakotas but the first to the new location. Finding the entrance was a chore but after that everything was magical. The service was impeccable and out waiter, Chris, was ever so attentive and engaging. Thanks for a wonderful afternoon. We glowed all day afterwards.

We had several courses, tomato soup, kale salad, steak, cauliflower starter, and gluten-free lasagna. Every dish was delicious. They interpreted the food differently and nicely. The staff was friendly, ambiance was cozy, well-furnished, with a high ceiling. My husband and I liked it a lot.

Boulevard has always been a favorite of ours at the Metairie location. The FQ location didn’t disappoint. The ribeye was yummy. Hate to say it but the baked potato wasn’t hot enough to melt cheese nor was their enough butter (for us) Our waiter was really good and very knowledgeable. This will be one of our ‘go to’ spots. Wish we’d known they were there before now.
