As self proclaimed foodies, both my husband and I agree that Dakota's tops the list of best ever meals we have had in the US! The New Fashioned Old Fashion began the experience which also included amazing house made burrata, incredibly tasty scalloped potatoes, bone-in filet and the most amazing lamb we have ever tasted! Hats off to the team... More

This was our first visit and we went for Restaurant Week. The highlight of our visit was our waiter Juan. Service was extraordinary without being intrusive, and he was friendly and pleasant without being over the top. Meal was perfectly prepared and we were impressed with the rational portion sizes. We had appetizer, entrée, and dessert and didn't feel overstuffed.... More

I have eaten at many, many steakhouses and this is by far one of the BEST, if not THE best meals I have ever had. The shrimp cocktail was beautifully prepared, the crimson blush cocktail was delicious, the cowboy steak was by far the star of the show, but our server was on par with everything all night up until...

We visited Dakota's Steakhouse during the Restaurant Week 2016. For a fixed price of $45, you get 3 courses, with part of the money going to charity. While the salad and entrees' are excellent as you would expect, the real winner is the pineapple upside down cake. It comes with a Dr Pepper-caramel glaze that causes the dessert to "pop."... More

Underground, quaint restaurant. My Husband and I were celebrating our Anniversary. The Black Garlic Risotto and the Fresh Mozzarella & Heirloom Tomato Salad were absolutely delicious. Clayton's service was over the top and he even presented us with an Anniversary dessert and card signed by the staff! We recommend Dakota's for a special dinner.

Celebrated our grandparents 60th anniversary here. We were a fairly large group of 40 people and I have to say that the staff handled it amazingly. The food was out of this world..

This was our choice for dinner on our final night in Dallas. The restaurant is below street level and offers complimentary valet parking. The steaks are flavorful and generous cuts. The service was outstanding. This is a top notch restaurant. Bill was $200 for the 2 of us which included drinks. If you want a great meal with awesome service,... More

We believe the best steaks come from the best cut and quality. That's why we get all of our beef fresh from renowned beef purveyors, Allen Brothers. Each cut is corn and grain fed USDA Prime steak that our chef handpicks. Each steak is aged for a minimum of 28 days for a perfectly tender, juicy bite every time. It is our goal to give you a great meal every time you join us for lunch or dinner. We update our menu twice a year so each time you dine with us you experience fresh flavors that go with every season.
