It has a wall of glass which lets in plenty of light. We thought it might be a dark space but that was not the case. We were part of a 45 person group. I had the Wedge salad. The sides were asparagus, truffle Mac and cheese, mashed potatoes and mushrooms. All were good. The calamari appetizer... read more

Four of us visited for lunch. The guys went for steaks (the well done one was perfect as was the medium rare seving). The girls went for the fish. Both the trout and salmon were tasty and we cleaned our plates. Calamari appetizer was different, a mix of calamari and peppers. Would have like a larger serving for the price.... More

Dakota's really sets the standard for fine dinning in Dallas. We started with Calamari, it was the best I've ever had, next was the clam chowder, it was creamy and delicious. I had the felt and lobster tail and both were perfect, next time I would like to try the bone in filet that the waiter told us about. The... More

Nice location in downtown Dallas with the actual restaurant being underground one level. Valet parking is conveniently located out front of the elevator that takes you down into the foyer of Dakota's. Beautiful interior and ambience with a piano player, nice lighting, and a beautiful outdoor court view from many tables. We actually had 2 servers that were quite attentive... More

Had an evening meal here on a very, very hot day in Dallas. Good to escape the heat when we eventually found the entrance! Good, quick service although our waiter was maybe slightly over-attentive - difficult to eat and chat to him all through the meal! Good standard Texan food - nice choice of seafood and steaks. Very American selection... More

My husband and I were in Dallas for our anniversary and wanted a semi-fancy place to have dinner. We feel like we chose the prefect place! The atmosphere was kind of romantic. There was live music (piano). The food was the best part! We both ordered a steak and savored every piece. We also ordered two sides which were enormous!... More
