I was taken to this "underground" restaurant by the company I work for! First, very dark! Slim menu, second, SLOW service, forgot my salad, incorrect order!!!! Waited an hour for our food then mine was wrong and had to wait another 45 min for the corrected food! It wasn't even very good food! I wouldn't go back!!!

She had the chicken and jalapenos for lunch, along with a salad. I had the fabulous shrimp bisque soup and scallops- both wonderful. Service was prompt and attentive. The restaurant manager personally visited our table to check on the food and service. We will be back!

The food was very good. I ordered the daily special, bacon-wrapped scallops with sage gnocchi. Their signature coconut pie was delicious. However, the waiter was less than impressive. He told my vegetarian friend that he didn't think the chef would allow him to modify orders to accommodate her diet, e.g. ordering the gnocchi without the scallops, without actually asking the...

Dakota's is below street level with an open roof patio. Accessible by elevator (with valet parking), or from the Ross Building. Typical steak house dark, plush decor, except for the very pleasant outdoor patio with artificial waterfall cascade. It was hot outside, but comfy on the patio for lunch. Typical steaks & seafoods menu, with very attentive service. Everything was... More

Had a business dinner there. And the aged ribeye steak was awesome. Scalloped potatoes, creamed spinach and grand mariner creme brûlée where great, and the staff was friendly.

Visited early on a Saturday night and watched the place fill up. We were there early enough they just had nice jazz playing in the background, but after a short while the piano player started and he really did great job, good with requests. Starting out with Calamari which was spicy and tender as we decided on our main course... More

We had an absolutely fantastic dinner at Dakota's recently...and as we were a large party (and all willing to share), I got to try a wide variety of very tasty eats. There wasn't anything served that I wasn't completely thrilled with! Their steaks were perfection, as were the sides and the desserts. Our wait staff was excellent, catering to our... More

We recently celebrated a birthday with a few friends. The side dining room we were seated in closed off for privacy from a rather noisy dining room. The steaks were well prepared, but a little pricy for the quality. Generous sides, enough for family style. Mac & cheese was a big hit. All things considered it was a good experience... More
