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

Having been visiting Dallas so frequently over the past few months that I felt as though I was beginning to permanently reside there, I decided I should try one of the restaurants thought locally to be one of the best. Consequently, I booked a reservation at Dakota's Steakhouse. I had been told by a half dozen or more folks that... More

First you must read the story behind the reasoning of the underground location. So funny. The food was delicious and the service was even better!

Hate to tell everyone about this place but Dakota's is the place to go. They have it all for service, food, and experience for a great night of dining. No matter what you order you will be happy. Will come back many times.

Dakota's has been in Dallas .... like a long time for the Dallas restaurant thing. It is a below ground restaurant with an open air atrium for the patio. The decor is very dark wood, tile floor etc. It's a pleasing decor but somewhat dated. The food is excellent. It's not inexpensive and it is very good. Service is excellent... More

The food at the steakhouse was outstanding. Nothing bad to say here. The ambiance was also excellent. There is a very interesting story behind this restaurant. As the waiter or host/hostess about the story behind the location.
