I Used To Really Like this Restaurant

In order to appreciate this review you need to know a little about me. I am 57 years old and am in the class of people who still has enough to talk to his wife and friends about that I don't need a big screen TV for entertainment. But I recognize, and accept, that that is the norm - even... read more

Built underground to circumvent the surrounding Baptist church's land restrictions that prevented booze from being served on the land. A favorite restaurant and watering hole for the professionals who work in the nearby offices. Good atmosphere and food.

Start out with the interesting entrance on an island in the road. Down the elevator to a fantastic dining room. The food was absolutely spectacular. We started with a whole bunch of appetizers, followed by a variety of entree's. Everyone raved about their meals. We were a large group and the staff did a fantastic job of providing a top... More

I am not a steak eater at all. When I have to have steak I cringe but my husband always takes me too places where I can eat what I like but on this trip, being we were in Texas, he asked me to try steak. Ever watch Maxwell Smart? That is how I felt getting down to the restaurant.... More

We went to Dakota's for our anniversary. The food was good, my husband loved the bread they brought to the table. The table closest to ours had very loud and obnoxious diners, but otherwise it was good. The Grand Marnier Creme Brulee was to die for.

Happened to be in downtown Dallas on business, and were recommended to try Dakota's. Great find! Elevator to the underground restaurant. Impeccable attentive service. One of the best steaks I've had in a long time. Not cheap, but then you get what you pay for. Overall, a great experience and well worth giving it a try.

This place offers everything a great steakhouse is supposed to offer, at prices that lead to great expectations. It was good, but it didn't meet the bar it promises.

The food at Dakota's is very, very good BUT as another poster has stated - it is LOUD. We were a group of 10 and seated at the Chef's Table (which is not in the kitchen but closest to the kitchen). The acoustics were so poor that it was difficult to hear the person sitting next to you. Service was... More

1st started looking for a restaurant near the Winspear Opera House to eat before the show. Made reservations online. Offered free valet. Pulled up under this small awning, And there was a glass elevator that took you 18ft. below the ground. just beautiful, with a waterfall in the background. Ate outside which was warmer than outside, due to the great... More

Very good mix between high end steak choices and more moderately priced choices. Excellent service at both bar and restaurant. Steak prices are similar to other high end steak places and quality meets expectations at these price points. Not many choices in this end of downtown but no need to wander further to get attentive service and quality food. If... More
