A word from Dakota's Steakhouse
What's better than a fine, aged wine? How about a fine, aged steakhouse that serves prime aged steaks. Where would one find such a unique combination? Located below the sidewalks of downtown Dallas at the 29 year Dallas icon, Dakota's Steakhouse.

Sit back and take in the many decorative nuances that make Dakota's still one of the most romantic spots in Dallas. Outside the restaurant, the multi-level waterfall, draping foliage and black granite patio bar make dining outdoors a delight. Inside the restaurant, the New Orleans lamps and imported marble floors neatly package the classic theme. Continued

  • "I ordered the bone-in filet with a glass of Concannon cabernet. The steak was delicious while the wine was NOT for cabernet lovers. Our server made good suggestions, even though I got the impression he seemed a little bored with us. My fiancé and I shared oysters (delicious with the peach mignonette), roasted corn (also buttery and delicious!), and coconut cream pie (which blew my mind how tasty it was). The white with black/dark wood trim is simply gorgeous. It was warm enough for the doors leading to the patio to be kept open. It is a beautifully structured restaurant. The only complaint is we took our server's suggestion and ordered our steaks more medium than medium rare, which would have made the experience absolutely heavenly."

  • "Went with friends for a birthday dinner. Everything was amazing. We had rib eye with mushrooms - not to miss. Finished with the crème Brule - WOW! The staff was outstanding. They made the entire night great. They were always there to fill drinks, clean away dishes, bring more bread always genuine and friendly. Just a pleasure."

  • "I'd not been to Dakota's since 1989 or '90 and looked forward to a revisit while in Dallas. The environment is very good, service was tops but, the food was not. I had one of the featured steaks, a cut I enjoy & have much experience with). My wife had a fluke (fish) chef's special which had little flavor - way too "delicate". My KC strip was just OK with little natural flavor & the chili seasoning was not an enhancement - a simple crushed pepper would have been better but wouldn't have saved the bland strip. For a starch in a fine dining steakhouse I expect far more in french fries that what was served. Despite the description, the crème brûlée was ALL banana flavor. House old-fashioned specialty drink was fantastic. Service was great."

  • "My husband and I went to Dakota's Steakhouse for our 6th wedding anniversary on March 29th. The experience we had at Dakota's will never be forgotten. It was a perfect place for an anniversary. Our waiter was outstanding, the atmosphere was beautiful, and the food was amazing. We received a free dessert since it was our anniversary, and we devoured it in a minute as it was so delicious. The entire staff at Dakota's gave us an anniversary card with all their signatures. It was truly a wonderful time."

  • "Me and my wife wanted to do something Romantic and different and Dakotas ended up being the perfect place for that. We recently got married and have been married for a month but the staff made us feel like we had been married for years already. They even gave us a card congratulating us and signed by almost all their staff. Thanks Dakota for a great experience."

  • "From the moment we were greeted at the valet parking to the moment we left, we were treated with great care Renee', our birthday guest, was made to feel very special that evening. All who served us, and expecially Randy, our experienced waiter, saw to our ever need, even down to the special birthday candle on her dessert! Great food, Great service, Great decor,and Great fun! We were very relaxed and pampered! We will definitely return to Dakota's."

  • "I took a group of friends (including two New Yorkers) for an early dinner on Saturday. They loved everything about the restaurant--food, ambience & service. It has a lovely small patio (like the restaurant, it's below ground level) for outside dining. I've been there many times & will return when I'm back in Dallas."

  • "This was a great dining experience! Sort of down underground was fun. Very classic, dark wood, steakhouse feel. The food was AMAZING. The Foie Gras was to die for and the Rib Eye was "eyes rolling up in the back of your head and doing the happy seat dance" full of flavor!!! The service was extremely attentive by all the servers that passed by not just from our waiter. We are definitely going back for another visit before we leave the Dallas area."

  • "When I was looking for a nice restaurant to take my girlfriend on our one year anniversary, a friend recommended Dakota's. I owe that friend a lot. This was a perfect choice. They have the best steaks in town, hands down. Also, the service was fantastic. Our waiter was hilarious and very helpful in making choices on the menu. We told them what the occasion was, and halfway through our meal, they brought us a card wishing us a happy anniversary signed by the entire staff. We will for sure be returning."

  • "Business lunch. Typical steakhouse fare. Nothing really special about it though. Crowded and a bit loud. Server seemed harried, dropped off soup then never came by with a pepper mill. Other than that service was acceptable. Food was good, but again nothing special."

  • "We had a birthday lunch for our Market President with 15 people. We always get the best service and the food is wonderful. It is my favorite lunch place for special occasions. It is so comfortable and enjoyable. Lianna Gasser BB&T"

  • "The food was wonderful. Four of us at the table and every plate was completely devoured with not even any small vegetable scraps left behind. The waiter was attuned to our needs, not disturbing us when we were actively chatting but there when we wanted to order dessert. Background seemed a little noisy but we were seated next to a very large table of about 20 folks who were there to celebrate someone's birthday. If you want it to be quiet, you should probably ask for a table out by the waterfall."

  • "I took my 4 year old daughter to dinner and everyone was so polite to her. They treated my daughter like a princess. They brought her Roses and took extra special care of her especially out waiter, Neil. My daughter and I were even allowed to dance next to the piano been played by another polite gentleman. The food was hot even though there was a crowd. The place never became noisy and we never felt rushed because we were there for a good 2 hours. I would recommend this place to anybody and definitely would go back. This was a night I will never forget with my daughter and I hope to get to do it again very soon. Thank you Dakota's Restaurant for the excellent time."

Our waiter Orlando was knowledgeable and had great recommendations! Our steaks were delicious and cooked to perfection! The Mac & cheese was recommended by Orlando and was amazing! Thank you for a wonderful night!"

  • "We had heard that Datoka's was a nice place to have dinner but we were pleasantly surprised on just how nice it was. Good Wine List, Atmosphere was great very enjoyable and relaxing, service was good and the steaks were to die for. Dakota's is now one of our top 5 restaurants in the DFW areas and I would recommend it highly!"

  • "All the food was great except for my rib eye which was hard to chew. I have been to this restaurant several times and this is the first time the food has not been so good. My date's rib eye was perfect, though."

  • "We dined during the weekend of the National Cheerleading competition so it was understandably noisy in there with all those energetic teenagers in there. Not in a bad way, though. We were seated in a secluded table to give us as much distance from the noise as possible, which was very considerate of the hostess. The service was outstanding and the food was delicious. It has a New Orleans theme and although no restaurant outside of Louisiana can match our Cajun spice this place came close. The price was low considering the quality of the food and the ambience of the restaurant. And getting in an elevator on street level and riding it down to the restaurant gave it a kind of "secret place" type feel to it, which just made it more romantic."

  • "Missed the temperature on my filet. I never send one back since most restaurants screw up the re-fire in lieu of providing a new steak cooked to requested temperature. Regardless, I enjoyed my rare steak very much."

  • "The overall experience was very nice. From the valet parking being right at the elevator on our way in right back to the hostess stand calling the valet to get our car on the way out of the door. The steaks were cooked to a perfect medium-rare! Not the most extensive wine list, but solid. The outdoor patio and the dining room have a very nice ambiance. I personally don't like very bright rooms to dine in and BOTH met my criteria. Is it the place to be scene? No. But it's a great place to go have a great steak and enjoy the company you are with. Highly recommend!"

  • "I am from out of town and found this restaurant online. The service and food were wonderful. The waiter, Malcolm knew the menu and was truly a benefit in the dining experience. Loved the atmosphere and the food was excellent. Overall, I would definitely recommend this restaurant and hopefully can return at a later date. The only negative was the noise level, however, there was a group of 12 directly next to our table and a couple of those people were extremely loud."
