Very good

Delicious steak, sides are very generous, so make sure you don't order too much. Service was a little slow, we were surprised as the restaurant wasn't that busy. Overall a very good experience

We enjoyed our visit to Dakota steak house. We shared a bone-in Filet, and a salad - it was a great meal and we really enjoyed ourselves. People watching was also fun as there were a lot of business groups in there also.

Best Fillet on the bone in town, good wine. Massive texas portioned sides, must try the macaroni cheese and the vegetable tempuras. Slightly over-priced, Impeccable. I would definitely revisit when I am back in town.

This is by far, one of our top five restaurants in the world. The restaurant is underground, with one glass wall that looks out onto a patio with outdoor dining, a fireplace and a water wall. Dining indoors or out is exceptional. A pianist plays beautiful music in the background and sets the mood in the room. Oscar, our favorite... More

I had the Cowbow Ribeye and my friend had their "special" lamb cut. The ribeye was ok, but not spectacular. I liked Perry's better. My friend was not too impressed with the lamb, it was an odd cut and difficult to cut and eat. It wasn't ribs, but more like a central cut with an odd shaped bone. I ordered... More

We went to Dakota's for my son's birthday and had an outstanding experience! Everyone was very attentive and our waiter Sergio was the absolute best! The ambiance was great, we sat on the patio by the waterfall and it was perfect. The food was great, steaks, lobster, oysters, wedge salad, french fries, baked potato, everything was outstanding! At the end... More

First I love Lamb and I had the best Lamb the other night at Dakota's that I have ever eaten. I gave three others a piece and they agreed. Having said that everyone loved what they ordered. The service was great, the wine list was good. Awesome evening of dining. I'd go back in a heartbeat.

All you see from the street is a valet stand and an elevator entrance beside an intersection. Below is a great restaurant with a really nice outdoor sitting area beside a water wall. Meal was really good. Drinks were really good. Service was even better. So glad we stumbled across this place.

I loved this restaurant! My filet was cooked to perfection and delicious. The mashed Yukon potatoes were also quite tasty. The atmosphere was quiet, comfortable and private. An aboslutley must-visit when you're in Dallas!

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.
