My wife expressed a couple of months ago she had heard of Dakota's and would like to have dinner there. I set up the reservation online which was very easy. We arrived there to be taken below on an elevator and everyone from the Valet service at the top, the host/hostesses, to our waiter were happy and very courteous throughout... More

A group of six of us enjoyed dinner one weekend evening at this restaurant. The server was quite attentive for the most part although there were one or two lapses in attentiveness during the evening. The entrees were prepared well and everyone enjoyed the items they had ordered. The meal was served within a reasonable time of us ordering it.... More

Had lunch here after staying at the Fairmont. Located in the underground hallway between the hotel and an adjacent office building, and right at the underground entrance of the parking lot. Food is presented well visually, and service is friendly. Waitress forgot part of our order and took a little longer than we liked, but overall, a good experience. Expect... More

We stopped in here for a couple drinks and late snacks while visiting Dallas last weekend. The atmosphere was pretty good - they had someone playing the piano and it definitely felt (and smelt) like a traditional steak house! We ate up at the bar area, and it was intimate for the two of us. Exactly what we were looking... More

Enjoyed a terrific dining experience here last Saturday night. We started at the bar with generous martinis and enjoyed the pianist playing Christmas music. Our server was excellent. We enjoyed a couple of glasses of fine wine with our meals. We shared a caesar salad. The couple seated next to us ordered exactly the same meals as us, but were... More

We went with friends to Dakota's. We've been wanting to go for years. We were very pleased from start to finish. We arrived via Uber (so I can't speak to valet or parking) and greeted warmly, even by the valets. We enjoyed drink - the ladies had specialty drinks while my friend had a bourbon and I had a Bombay... More

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.
