    To be completely honest....not happy at all. The evening shift manager should definitely seek further training. There is a certain service to be expected with a 300 dollar dinner. They were extremely busy which is to be expected. I made a reservation for my husband's bday. I asked for them to bring him a dessert with happy bday written in chocolate. That never happened. The waiter was never informed. I'm not sure if thats the host or how that process works. We never got our bread so after our appetizers we realized everyone else had bread and asked for ours. It took about an hour to get our food. Which again it's busy so we understand. We ordered a steak with the oscar steak topping. We got the steak but not the topping so we asked our waiter and he apologized and put in the order. About 20 min later he says it's still cooking. We say its ok we know your busy. Then the waiter comes back which at that time we have finished our food. He says he's sorry he dropped it. He offers us a free dessert. Which I thought was going to be my special request but he forgot. So then we ask for a to go box for the dessert and about 15 min later nothing so we just leave. The waiter obviously had a bad night. But besides that the lack of communication in this restaurant between all parties even the chef, is not up to par. I call the manager after our experience and he first says this is not a good time....I tell him I'm sorry I was just there and need to discuss my experience with you. I tell him what happened and he says yea were busy what...do you want like a small gift card? No actually I dont...the worst 300 dollars we have ever spent. And we have made some pretty bad decisions with mo ey in our lifetime.

    It was new years eve, so my expectations were a little lower. The experience was better than that I thought it would be. The food was outstanding, the service was very good. The ambiance is not great for fine dining in my opinion. The tables are very close together I am always amazed that the wait staff aren't crashing into each other. The noise level is very high, so that the 4 of us had a hard time hearing each other. We chose Dakotas because we had a gift card, it is usually not my first choice due to the noise and previous experience with cold food, wrong food orders. However, I'll give it another try based on this experience.

    I was not happy with my meal. I did send it back and was able to get full on bread and veggies only. Was totally disappointing as I order this regularly and could tell right away it was NOT right. I did inquire if there was a new chef and sure enough yes. I am definitely thinking of trying a new spot for what use to be my favorite filet in town.

    We have had the pleasure of eating on a number of occasions at Dakota's. This particular time, we had the most wonderful waitress. Her name was Gabby and she was very attentive and efficient. My only complaint was the wedge salad. I was the only one in our party to have it. All the other salads were green and fresh. Mine was white and rusty lettuce smothered in bleu cheese dressing. Steaks, potatoes and asparagus were great.

    We decided to try the stuff crab mushrooms as an appetizer. They came out cold to the touch and ice cold in the middle. We change to the crab cake which did come out hot. On the main coarse, my mashed potatoes were cold and my wife’s baked potato also came out cold. Steaks were cooked to the correct temperature but were extremely tough. Another disappointment was the menu has been scaled back. The usual steaks and the signature twice baked potato weren’t available. This has been one of our favorite spots to eat but this trip was a major disappointment.

    First the new Exec Chef took the Scallops off the menu. They were one to the reasons we went to Dakota's. I ordered the Lamb chops the were full off fat and so tuff. I should have complained, but felt it wasn't the time. Here's where I am complaining!!! I am no longer impressed with Dakota's and don't know if I will return. Let me know when you have a new Executive Chef?

    Olivia, our server, was great. Meat was exceptional. Though, it is a little silly at these meal prices to charge $10 extra if you want a vegetable in addition to the obligatory mashed potatoes.

    Positives: 1) Appetizer was delicious. 2) Steak was awesome. 3) Waiter comped our dessert. 3) Ambience was good. Negatives: 1) No bread was served until we asked for it; waiter forgot. 2) Waiter also forgot the salads we ordered. 3) Waiter said he’d bring a steak knife; he forgot. 4) Salmon was dry. 5) Waiter broke my wine glass while clearing our plates; glass still had wine in it and spilled. He didn’t offer to replace it. Based on our previous wonderful experience with Dakotas, we were excited about returning as we were celebrating our 53rd anniversary. However, we were very, very disappointed with this experience. Throughout our meal our waiter repeated told us he was having a bad day. We were concerned for him. Our expectations for this anniversary celebration were certainly not met. Most likely we will not return.

    Not the best I’ve had. Filet was too charred outside and inedible. Our reservations were early and we had to wait 30” for bread. Sorry, but if you seat me your bread should be ready. Servers should be trained on what guests expect at this price point. Table kept free of crumbs etc. the tables were so small for four people we blocked the path while trying to read the menus. Won’t hurry back. My son’s steaks are right up there with Dakota’s.

    It was our 42 wedding anniversary. My husband always selects the Chilean sea bass and it is usually perfect! Last night he had to se d it back! It was so salty he could not eat it. By the time a second one was prepared I had already finished my meal. So, sad to say, we did not get to e joy our meal together.

    Made us wait 20 minutes after we arrived. Tried to seat us at one table and it was taken, had us go back to wait another 5 minutes. Then seated us in main dining room, acting like it was a chore. Service took way to long, food overpriced. Will not be returning.
