Had an evening meal here on a very, very hot day in Dallas. Good to escape the heat when we eventually found the entrance! Good, quick service although our waiter was maybe slightly over-attentive - difficult to eat and chat to him all through the meal! Good standard Texan food - nice choice of seafood and steaks. Very American selection... More

My husband and I were in Dallas for our anniversary and wanted a semi-fancy place to have dinner. We feel like we chose the prefect place! The atmosphere was kind of romantic. There was live music (piano). The food was the best part! We both ordered a steak and savored every piece. We also ordered two sides which were enormous!... More

Our Waitress Emily was excellent on her knowledge of the menu and celiac as well as the wine list. The first evening my husband ordered the Veal Chop and I had the Signature Cut Lamb. The Lamb is unusual as it resembles a butterfly with two loins joined. Both were done to perfection. For dessert Emily found us a flourless... More

Entree 1 - Pork loin not cooked to at least medium as requested Entree 2 - Steak tough Waiter gone when needed for simplist of things Coffee took forever All of the above overpriced, e.g., Cream brulee = $9.00! A/C blowing a cold wind on our table Presentation - Early Understatement Stark! Enough said? Sad!

My husband & I invited old friends here and were very pleased with the food, service & atmosphere of the restaurant. It was quite enough to carry on a conversation, the service was outstanding, very attentive but not so as to interrupt a good time. We ordered steak & king crab, both were excellent. We visited this restaurant almost 30... More

The steak was the best. The service was great. Had a very different very good Martini infused with jalapeño. Everything was awesome you can walk underground from the Fairmont. Would have given a 5 but the Piano was way to loud!!!! To the point of ruining your dinner.

Husband and I went to Dakota's for date night. We both ordered ribeyes which were very delicious and cooked perfectly. We had a loaded baked potato which was fine but nothing out of the ordinary. The wedge salad was great and they split it so we could share. The atmosphere is fun - very casual - and the dining room... More

This restaurant hit the mark in all categories. It was recommended to us as we were in town for business. It did not disappoint. Located underground, it was swanky, with a great decor. The menu was mainly steak entrees and some seafood. I had a rib eye, it was perfectly prepared with a burst of flavor. There were 20 of... More
