Visited Dakota's for my husbands 40th birthday and we where very impressed with the service hosted by our server Oscar. His recommendations where outstanding. The place is very romantic and it was a perfect fit for our evening. From oysters and calamari , to heirloom mozzarella salad to the The Cowboy Prime Ribeye and the truffle Mac and cheese was...

My husband and I shared a romantic anniversary dinner at Dakota's, a high end steak house located in downtown Dallas. Access to the restaurant is via an elevator since the whole place is below the surface. The story behind the underground location is interesting and unusual. A binding deed prohibits the selling of alcohol on these former church grounds. So,... More

High end steak house. Excellent service, great steaks & a good selection of wine. This is the higher end of the scale in terms of cost but really nice for a special occasion. highly recommended.

We had a business associate in the US from Europe and wanted to bring him to a good steak house. The Concierge at our hotel recommended Dakota's and made a reservation. Ambiance is nice, server knew menu inside and out, made good recommendations and he was pleasant and attentive. I had a 16oz filet with crabmeat that was awesome, others... More

This was an underground restaurant! The steak did not need a knife, I could cut it with a fork!!! The best steak I have EVER had! It was pricey, but worth every penny! You must experience this restaurant! Service was excellent!

If you like the ambience of a subterranean restaurant, you will love this restaurant. Unique location and very comfy environs with a fabulous wine list. I thoroughly enjoyed the filet mignon. Awesome flavor cooked to perfection.

Just went to Dakotas steakhouse for the first time and it was awesome. Waiter made good suggestions and the food was incredible. I had a 22oz bone-in ribeye and ate every scrap. The coconut cream pie was the topper... Perfect meal and great atmosphere. I would highly recommend to anyone for a celebration or nice date night.

Friendly staff, mouth watering steaks that are cooked perfectly to your liking and a 'patio' that is underground make for a delightful night out. Sure you could find a cheaper steak but in a central location in the theatre district it still makes good sense. Love the southern hospitality - you won't leave hungry!

We celebrated our wedding anniversary at Dakota's recently on a Friday night. Valet greets you and you go down the elevator to a nice courtyard bar area with outdoor seating. The evening was nice so we decided to stay outdoors on the courtyard. We had 7:30 reservations and while early the place was pretty empty for a Friday night. We... More
