“Good Business Dinner”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed February 13, 2013

Dakota's is a higher end steak and seafood restaurant. This was my second visit and I do Ed with work colleagues. The food was very good and the wine was fabulous. However, there were some significant flaws that should not occur at a restaurant of this caliber. We ate in the bar area and there was not a separate server other than the bartender. The service was slow, we had to ask for bread, my colleague had to ask for pepper for her salad and my wi e glass had dishwater streaks and the stem felt sticky. Attention to detail should be expected in this price range.

“Good food, great service”
4 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

We did not have the steak, so maybe this would be a different review for this restaurant. I ordered a clam chowder to start (it was correct, but nothing special) and a crab cake and burrata salad as main course. My colleague had the salmon. We enjoyed our choices. I would not consider the crab cake close to the top I ever had, but it was good. The burrata with mushrooms was very delicious.

“Only 5 Stars”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 25, 2013

This restaurant, which is connected by an underground tunnel to the Fairmont Hotel, is worth a visit or two while in Dallas. The staff is well trained, friendly and knowledgeable. We accepted their recommendations, and we enjoyed every bite. Great food and staff.

“The perfect steak”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed January 23, 2013

I have been to steakhouses in New York and Los Angeles and none have matched the meal I received here. Not only was the food perfectly prepared it was presented perfectly. I recommend the filet and the mashed potatoes above everything else.
