About 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 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.

Dakota's Steakhouse Ratings and Reviews
Food was good. Quail was very good, not crispy but juicy and flavorful. Baby Gem salad was way over dressed and as much Romaine lettuce as arugula and gem leaves. Steak was good; seasoned appropriately and carefully cooked.The watercress adoring the plate was wilted and on the edge of spoiling. Coconut cream pie was good - a nice finish. The decaf coffee was warm, not hot, and we had to ask for a refill. Overall, a good meal but nothing special. Because we were visiting TX and TX is a beef raising state, we expected Texas meat. All the meat is mid- America (which is lovely and delicious...)
My Food order and drink order was wrong. I asked for the steak dish with scallops recommended by the server, but received just the steak and I asked for no salt on for my cocktail... there were maybe 20 patrons at the restarant. I will not go back. 12/8 @ 8pm reservation.
Everything was great, it truly was. The wait staff, and our server in particular, was hands down the best. Ever. The fountain and live piano are amazing for a romantic evening or special occasion. The filet mignon was cooked to perfection, and you HAVE to try the coconut cream pie (recommended by our waiter). I highly recommend Dakota’s!
Ambiance on the patio by the waterfall was amazing! I started off with the bone marrow appetizer, I had never had it before, amazing, I'd suggest it to anyone! I ordered the bone in filet mignon which was cooked perfectly and tasted amazing.. My friend had the scallops and enjoyed them, I don't eat seafood but I know a scallop can be overcooked easily, hers were perfect.. Our server was very attentive and prompt.. Overall experience was great and would highly recommend having dinner here!
Food was good but the whole service feels like Denny’s. We had 6 of us and after we finished appetizers, the dirty dishes stayed here for 30 minuets till I asked them to take it away. The whole places is packed with tables and you can’t walk about at all. No menus were given to us for 20 minuets till we asked.
My brother in law ask my wife and I to join him here for dinner it was very close to where he was staying.
Im going to cut to the chase here everyone loved their chicken tortilla soup I had the capresse salad all very good.
The star here is the steaks I had the New York the other two men had the ribeyes. My wife had the mahi all raved.
All agreed the steaks were the best anyone had had in a very long time truly exceptional.
Tinder flavorful perfect crust and temperature.
The scallop potatoes were outstanding as well.
Had dinner here for our first anniversary - absolutely wonderful experience! Classic steakhouse experience with live jazz piano, delicious steaks, tasty appetizers, amazing accompaniments (I highly recommend the brussel sprouts), and heavenly dessert - and I didn't feel like I would burst afterwards, either! We will be back for sure!
Well, I reviewed this already on Google but it was so good I don't mind another time. Just overall one of the best dining experiences I've ever had. Food, drinks, service, atmosphere were all above and beyond expectations. Simply fantastic!!! Thanks again Dakota's for helping to make our 20th Anniversary a night we will always remember.
