It's a steak place good not great. Prices are moderate but if you are a steak guy look elsewhere. Salad bar is great.

We went to the Dakota Steak house for a surprise 60th birthday party for my brother. Food and atmosphere was super. Service beyond compare. If ever in the area again we will stop in for dinner.

I visit various restaurants in CT but Dakota have absolutely the best steak cooked as you prefer. you can have two sides with your order! the price is little bit high than other restaurants but it is fair because the quality is higher. From an italian tourist!

Great place in the center of the state right near Hartford for brunch. The food was top notch. Recommend to make a reservation, because it can get pretty busy.

I took my Dad here for Father's Day. We had reservations for 12:45 and the place was packed. We had a nice booth in the bar area which was out of the way and not overly noisy considering the crowd.
