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

Outstanding service. Ambience perfect for any special occasion. If it is steak you are looking for, look no further! I am not a meat eater, so the fit was not perfect for me. However, the clam chowder was the best I have ever eaten! The crab cakes were not good at all, and I am being polite. Again, all else... More

Made reservations for new years eve dinner. The interior design and setting is warm and romantic. Ambiance is top notch. But that's where it stops. The main dining area was loud loud loud. For a fancy restaurant it was super noisy. However, they have a side dining area overlooking the small waterfall which in my opinion was superior due to... More

The first thing that needs to be mentioned is the location as I was in Dallas on business and saw Dakota's as a top rated steakhouse. I was meeting a client from LA, so neither of us were familiar with the area. Waze took me right to the location, but when you drive down the small street and only see... More

We were discussing going to a Wendys (LOL) and suddenly a table was available in a less than half full dining... More

We arrived without a reservation for a late business lunch and were promptly seated. The server provided informed, intelligent advice on the menu without being too familiar - just right for a business lunch. Things started well with a homemade mini-loaf of herb bread accompanied by an olive oil and balsamic vinegar dip. Then the steak knife arrived. You can... More

I have lived in Dallas for 47 years and have never eaten at Dakotas. I wish I hadn't waited so long. The food is excellent, the atmosphere is very nice and our waiter, Jeff made our first visit perfect. The food is 5 star. I had the scallops, which I would definitely recommend. My husband had the filet. The sides... More
