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 30 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.

we went to the theatre with some friends and then had dinner at Dakota's. IT was outstanding. They were able to seat us early, and the service was great. All of our food was fixed just like we ordered, and the sides are big enough for two. They did not rush us and we actually sat and talked enjoyed some coffee and desert, while listing to the piano player. I would recommend this place for anyone looking for outstanding food and service.

Service was special. My wife and I were celebrating our anniversary. Everybody seemed to know it was a special night for us. Food was very, very good.

Service was excellent. We had a lovely, semi-private table. This is an expensive restaurant. Everything is a la carte. We are a low-sodium family but forgot to ask for "no salt" so, to our purist taste buds, everything was too salty. My ribeye was quite overdone. They comped it, which was very generous of them. I could have had another steak cooked for me, but I didn't want to bother. The meat seemed tasty at first, so I kept the steak, but after a while, it was just too salty and overdone. Shrimp cocktail app was delicious but messy to eat, as they plop the shrimp on a plate with the very tasty sauce. I would prefer a "cocktail" dish for the shrimp where I could dip them into the sauce. Husband's crab cake app was good but salty. Both steaks were top-drawer beef but very salty. We made the mistake of ordering a pound of King crab legs too at $59/pound, yikes. These were well-prepared but, again, too salty. When we got back to our hotel room with our leftover bags, neither of us wanted to eat any of it the next day because of the salt. In spite of the excellent service and lush surrounding, we are not likely to return unless we could have a guarantee that NOTHING would be salted. The next morning, we could not get the taste of salt out of our mouths for most of the day. So if you love salt, this is a great place for you. But if you are trying to reduce your sodium intake, better be sure to say "no salt" right up front or you will be inundated.

Awesome experience. Our server Brandon was superb making solid recommendations and dealt well with our quirky party of 8. The food was outstanding with everyone leaving happy.

We booked last min, thinking we'd found just another nice steak house, but Dakota's totally exceeded our expectations! Service and care were personalized and top notch. Our steaks were the best we've had in Dallas (which has been numerous) and the veal chop with blue cheese ragout, wow! We refrained from dessert, but the menu was very tempting! Hope to return!

As people who really enjoy a good steak, Dakota's did not disappoint. Our steaks were served just as requested. The brussels sprouts were excellent as were the scalloped potatos. I'd recommend this place and will be going back.

Great food and service. One of the better high-end steak houses I've been to in Dallas.
