Small table provided for us making us sit on top of each other and other parties also crowded us in.

Great steak, cooked to perfection. Service was very attentive. The Silver Oak Cabernet was especially good. Highly recommend. Been here many times and never disappointed.

This was our first time at Dakotas. It was our 40th anniversary and wanted it to be special. They did not disappoint! My husband had a steak and I had the halibut which was one of the specials. They were both perfectly cooked. We will definantly go back.

We love Dakota's and keep going back for special occasions because it is consistently amazing. The bar is great so we usually try to arrive a bit early for a drink and an appetizer and the food and our wait person at dinner was fabulous as always.

Excellent as always. LeCreama Chardonay and charbroiled sea scallops for appetizer. Had the wagyu rib eye this time. Hands down best steak I have ever had. Wife had the stuffed flounder. Always good. Chateau St Michelle with dinner. Shared the key lime pie with coffee for desert. Such an awesome Valentines meal experience. Our server was Gabby. Could not have asked for better service. Very attentive at the right time and never any pressure to place our main course selection. Dakotas. The BEST in Texas!

It was wonderful! Our only complaint was the key lime pie. It was much too tart. And we are connoisseurs of key lime pie! You might also add more real whip cream to help balance out the tartness.

The service was excellent. The scallops and Lobster sandwich with soup were well-prepared and very tasty. The cost of the meals was in line with the quality of the food and service. In short, this is a great place to dine! We highly recommend it and we have even there for or five times before

The waitress was friendly and personable. I was a tiny bit disappointed in some of the food. Some items just weren't up to par. Also, it was a little too noisy.

When booking the reservation I noted that we would be celebrating my husbands 50th birthday. I was not expecting anything special done for him. However previous restaurants at least acknowledge we are there to celebrate. The restaurant wasn’t overly crowded for a Tuesday night, but I found that the service was a little slow. Food was phenomenal but I did notice that the prices listed on the menu were not what we were charged.

We have never sat in back room which looked like a banquet room so nothing special.It was our friends 1st time to go to Dakota’s.We usually go to Bernard’s so wish we could have been in the main restaurant since I got reservations 2 weeks in advance.Food was great and oysters were on special.We will back but try and sit in the main restaurant to enjoy the full experience.

Wonderful experience, particularly, the staff! From bartenders to hostess to wait staff -- all excellent! The seafood and vegetables all very good -- wasn't wild about the peppercorn filet. The cocktails and bread were ridiculously amazing! The ambience and service made it all well worth it. We'll be back!

We enjoy going to Dakotas, this was the first time we had to ask for things. Usually servers are extremely attentive. After we were seated, a couple of large parties were then seated which may have pulled our server from us. But food was great as always.

The noise level was excessive and made it difficult to carry on a conversation. The food was mediocre, at best, and cold by the time it reached the table. Not at all what one would expect for the price!

This was our second time eating at Dakotas. When we arrived and were seated, we waited close to 15 minutes before a waiter ever came over, that was disappointing. He took our drink order and it was another 10 minutes or so before those arrived. Our appetizers were very good (scallops and shrimp cocktail)! We both ordered a filet and they were cooked correctly and were very good! The first time we ate there the food was a little better and the service was better, but we enjoyed ourselves and we will go back again.

If you are aware at all about COVID, this place will concern you. Hostesses were maskless, as were bartenders and bar waiters. Bar seating and Table spacing was normal, as if there was no pandemic.
