I go to Dallas every year for a conference and it would not be a trip to Dallas without dinner at the Dakota. I most enjoy dinning outside in the patio. The steaks are great & done perfectly.I highly recommend.

Had a private room with fourteen people. Definitely a different experience, as the entire restaurant is underground, and the only above ground feature is an elevator entrance / booth with awning. Nice place, good food, family sides, high end on price. Very nice steaks and...More

We thought a steakhouse would be a nice, upscale place for our first dinner in Dallas, but that turned out not to be the case. I did not expect a steakhouse to have the din of a sports bar, but we stayed to try a...More

Went to Dakota's for a birthday dinner with my parents. From the moment we came in we were treated like royalty. The waiter (blond, mid 30's) was so attentive and loved each of his recommendations.

Well Hello, my name is Don Kappel and I have an idea for a new television show all about wine. As you probably know there are lots of food/cooking programs being broadcast today, and even a cable tv channel called the food network, but nothing about wine! Wouldn't be nice to learn about wines, how it is produced, where it comes from and what foods are a perfect match. Well, that is what this show would be all about. So here is my question for you. Would you want to have your company featured on this program? If your answer is YES, would you be willing to make a minimum investment to help with production costs? We are looking for 4 title sponsors to make a one time investment of $5000. and you would have special acknowledgements with mentions at both the opening and closing of the show as well as advertising time during all commercial breaks. This is a great investment opportunity. At this point, we are working with 3 different television production companies (2 in Calif and 1 in Texas). We do have interest from a few cable networks, like the Food Network, Cooking Channel and the Travel Channel just to mention a few. So it's up to you, do you want to be the first company to support IT IS WINE TIME? Please let me know and your sponsorship will be put under a contract. Thank you, Don Kappel PS. Please contact me to arrange a meeting to discuss this opportunity

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. We update our menu twice a year so each time you dine with us you experience fresh flavors that go with every season.
