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

We were just looking for a restaurant close to a motel that took pets. We were waited on hand and food, We were not properly dressed so they allowed us to sit in the bar area which was still very nice. Several people checked on us besides our waiter. The food was very good. I felt like snuggling with husband... More

Agree with the other positive reviews that this restaurant is unique in its outstanding service-- they make everyone feel special. Food was innovative and well prepared-- highly recommend the shrimp and grits starter, strawberry, goat cheese and arugula salad, and grilled redfish. Truly amazing how great this restaurant is, yet it is hidden on a busy highway between a Best... More

We were staying very close by and this restaurant sounded like our kind of place. Really wanted to sit at the bar for a more casual atmosphere but it was full. The dining room seemed very formal and even though we were dressed quite nicely, we felt a little out of place . Service was a bit slow at the... More
