“Excellent food and service”
Reviewed June 23, 2012

Always consistently good food and service at this fine dining establishment - portions used to be small but I don't find that to be the case any longer- nice quiet atmosphere

“Best resaturant on the Northshore”
Reviewed June 21, 2012

We go as often as we can becuase the service is perfect and food is unbelievable - everytime. Arguably the best restaurant on the Northshore. Don't let the outside appearance fool you - inside is all fine dining.

“Birthday dinner”
Reviewed June 1, 2012

I go to Dakota's about 3-4 times a year, I have never had a bad dish of any kind there from salads and appitizers to desserts. The food is consistantly excellent and the service is great, it is diffenately in the same league with the top 10 in NOLA, by far the best I've been to on the north shore. Very good wine list also. The only problem I have with the restaurant is the dark painted walls, the atmosphere could be lighten up a bit.

“Dakota's Covington,La”
Reviewed May 29, 2012

I have gone to Dakota's on several ocassions. With the exception of our last time there,everything was great.
Last time, I found the food not up to its usual greatness. The service is still excellent.Hoping that I was there on an off night,because it used to be a flawless dining experience.

“Always something very special”
Reviewed May 28, 2012

I reside in East Baton Rouge Parish. I drive the extra miles to Dakota's just because the food is so special. The chef always has something great that is not on the menu and I like different foods that are not served every night. Last two special items was the crab special. Started with brie and included crab salad and cakes . The night ended with a slice of 5 layer coconut cake made by the owners mother. Great food. The service was also very good. Every waiter seemed to be involved in seeing that your visit was complete.
