Hidden Happy Hour GemReally lovely happy hour menu. Not the best "deals" in town but a great selection of food and interesting cocktails. Never very crowded for lunch or happy hour and if it is nice out, their patio is spacious. Been working a block from here for years and wish I would have discovered the happy hour earlier!6/6/2013 12:00:00 AMfood, service, entertainmentWhile being a bit pricey the Dakota operates on a consistently high level for food, service, & entertainment.6/3/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingAs always this place does not disappoint.

With a wonderful combination of savory, yet delicate sauces, and interesting choice of food groups. The service was wonderful, with a nice touch using a coded coaster to ask for service, and allow yourself a quiet meal without unnecessary interruption.
