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.

Start out with the interesting entrance on an island in the road. Down the elevator to a fantastic dining room. The food was absolutely spectacular. We started with a whole bunch of appetizers, followed by a variety of entree's. Everyone raved about their meals. We were a large group and the staff did a fantastic job of providing a top... More

I am not a steak eater at all. When I have to have steak I cringe but my husband always takes me too places where I can eat what I like but on this trip, being we were in Texas, he asked me to try steak. Ever watch Maxwell Smart? That is how I felt getting down to the restaurant.... More

We went to Dakota's for our anniversary. The food was good, my husband loved the bread they brought to the table. The table closest to ours had very loud and obnoxious diners, but otherwise it was good. The Grand Marnier Creme Brulee was to die for.

Happened to be in downtown Dallas on business, and were recommended to try Dakota's. Great find! Elevator to the underground restaurant. Impeccable attentive service. One of the best steaks I've had in a long time. Not cheap, but then you get what you pay for. Overall, a great experience and well worth giving it a try.

This place offers everything a great steakhouse is supposed to offer, at prices that lead to great expectations. It was good, but it didn't meet the bar it promises.
