“Awesome steaks, great location, pricy but worth it...best authentic american steak in HK”
Reviewed May 1, 2009

We went on a thurs night, after days of Chinese food we really wanted comfort food - a good ol' steak. We were recommended The Steak house in Intercon but because it was in Kowloon, we didn't want to go there. Concierge at our nice hotel recommended Dakota so we tried it. Great location - right in Central - beats going to the Kowloon. The place was very different from what we were expecting, steak house - dim light dark wood - but it wasn't! To our surprise it was a light airy and friendly place sans white coats or aprons. It was spacious and you can actually have a conversation there - not packed and noise as I'm use to in NY steakplaces. The food was excellent, the selection of wine steep, and most importantly, the steak was the best we ever had. The service is attentive, Yes the price was steeper than I thought, but that's what you pay for quality. And we felt we had good quality steak. Med rare was done to perfection. Our waiter - nice young guy, recommended lobster bisque which was their signature and fresh oysters - he was singing to our ears - we love it. Overall, I think it's one of the best steak places in HK, hands down, but be prepared to pay for it. I guess cause there are so many less expensive options in HK the price seem steep, but compared to NY - it was still well worth it. At least you get amazing service.

“Delicious”
Reviewed April 20, 2009

For those in Hong Kong looking for a genuine steak house experience, check out Dakota Prime. The food was delicious, the menu diverse, both in terms of the kinds of meat (and the variety of places from which it comes), and in the non-steak choices, including loads of seafood. The drinks were generous and the service fantastic.

“Exquisite Meal!”
Reviewed April 1, 2009

The steak was better than what we get in NYC. The oysters were super fresh and they had so many varieties. Great wine list. Very happy to find this little jewel in Hong Kong. Very professional service. Will definitely recommend to friends.

“Great way to start your evening!”
Reviewed April 1, 2009

My husband and I were recommended to the restaurant by our hotel. While we would rather eat local fare, the restaurant was given such high accolades we decided to go before meeting our friends out in LKF The location of the restaurant could not be better and the ambiance is just right for a great start of your night. We had a drink at the bar before sitting down - the mango mojito is a must! I started with the lobster bisque which was hands down one of the best lobster bisques I have ever tasted. My husband tried the beef tartar which came nicely presented and had good taste. The Meyer's cut and American Kobe mains were cooked to perfection. They were delicious - better than eating at home! The mashed potatoes and creamed spinach we ordered were good, but nothing out of this world, especially compared to the other items. After the meal we had finished off the bottle of wine and strolled into right into LKF. It really was a great way to start off the night!

Reviewed January 25, 2009

Excellent seafood - oysters, prawn pasta, crab cakes - but I must say that the steak (and the US prime rib at that!) was not acceptably flavourful.
