Everything was amazing... favorites of the evening were the filet, seafood mixed grill and crab soup! We will be going back again next time we are in town.

Unfortunately the food was disappointing. My husband had the lamb that was a little tough and tasted a little gamey. I had the veal and nothing special. The drinks and dessert were very good.

Took my wife here for our 5th year anniversary. Booked via opentable. Mentioned that it was a special night for us, and they gave us a free dessert.

This marks my fourth visit to Dakota's and it never fails to make me so delighted that I chose to dine there. Started with a great Pinot Noir with delicious warm bread and Crab and Brie soup (their signature soup). Entree consisted of giant sea scallops on a bed of califlower couscous. Excellently done in the oven and so much... More

Dakota is THE restaurant in Covington! Equally wonderful for dinner with clients or a special occasion. The crabmeat Brie soup is divine and is my favorite menu item...your loss if you don't try it!

We were out celebrating my birthday & this was one of the best dining experiences we've ever had. The food, service and atmosphere were all on point. Robert, our server, was very knowledgeable about the menu, wine & food preparation, & treated us like VIP's from the moment we walked in, until we walked out 4 hours later! It was... More

It had been quite some time since dining at this establishment, so we tried it recently for a special occasion. We were greeted and seated promptly by the friendly hostess. The atmosphere was as remembered, classy and low keyed. The wine list is fantastic but the web site needs to be updated as most vintages are not correct on the... More
