Steakhouse
When visiting the restaurant, patrons descend 18 feet underground in a canopied glass elevator, accessed from street level, for a culinary experience unlike any other. The American Steakhouse offers an expansive 1,800 square foot subterranean courtyard allowing patrons to dine al fresco and enjoy a New Orleans-inspired exterior space. This cool oasis is complete with a 20 foot, 5-tiered granite water wall, multi-tiered landscaping, lava rock fire pit, and black granite bar. Dakota's below-ground patio has long been considered one of the city's most romantic dining spots.

We believe the best steaks come from the best cut and quality. That’s why we get all of our beef fresh from renowned beef purveyors, Allen Brothers. Each cut is corn and grain fed USDA Prime steak that our chef handpicks. Each steak is aged for a minimum of 28 days for a perfectly tender, juicy bite every time.

It is our goal to give you a great meal every time you join us for lunch or dinner.

    It is probably better now than it was before the shutdown. It was a bit loud. The noise from the bar floods the main dining area. Food was great. We had scallops, salmon and calamari. Will go back and try the beef soon.

    Colby and Max took care of us at the bar. We were provided with excellent service and food recommendations from both. Everything we ate was excellent. We had the Rockefeller (Best we ever had), tater tots, deviled eggs, Caesar salad and we each had 16oz. Ribeyes with au gratins and broccolini. Will definitely come back for the food, ambience and excellent service from Colby and Max.

They brought us a special treat because it was my birthday! The bartender was also 10/10 and I would go again simply for the bar. Perfect for a date night, anniversary pr proposal! Valet was also great and very fast.

    After strategically planning this dining experience, I was thoroughly turned off by Dakota’s from beginning to end. On time for our reservation before the dinner crowd yet the Dakota’s staffed seemed pressed about getting us in and hurried out. From the host to our waitress, it felt like this was fast food. Eat and go! Uncomfortable interruptions from waitress that ended our meal with, “ Yes, you can bring the check.” Please note that if there is a party of 2 you have an hour and a half to dine. That’s it, that’s all! Beautiful restaurant, not an enjoyable experience.

    We had reservations for my 26th birthday, finding the location, valet parking, and checking in to our reservation was easy. The ambiance was very romantic and nice. I loved the live pianist. Our waiter and his team were very amazing. However all of our food had a frozen taste, nothing tasted fresh. The drinks were good. The service was so fast. I think our total time in the restaurant was 40 minutes. Our waiter surprised me with a birthday treat that was the best tasting item of the night.

    I went to Dakota’s for my boyfriend’s 21st birthday, and let me tell you; they did not disappoint. Gideon helped us out. He was so sweet and caring during our visit. My boyfriend had the Dakota’s Beef Wellington, and I had the 8oz Center Cut Filet Mignon. For sides, we had Truffle Parm Fries and Grilled Asparagus. I highly recommend this location and the food. Everything was delicious, and the ambiance was very welcoming. I swear I will be dreaming about that Filet Mignon and Parm Fries. 5/5 Experience!
