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.

Went for my husband’s birthday at lunch. Had the special: 2 3 oz. filets with wedge salad, risotto and asparagus. Also had calamari appetizer. All were wonderful, especially calamari and filets. Worked downtown years ago at ARCO Oil & Gas. Experience brought back many fond memories, and Dakotas even better than remembere!

Great service. I mentioned about a food allergy and our server made sure that a proper substitute was made to my dish. It was a great choice.

My filet was very flavorful and cooked perfect to my liking. My wife ordered the lobster tail. It was over cooked and chewy. Our waiter was no where to be found toward the end of our meal. Another waiter noticed we needed a to go box and assisted. Not sure if we will return.... not overly wowed.

Service was great. The place was lovely and quiet but not overly stuffy.
Crab cakes were to die for, steak was great ... the only thing we didn't like were the potatoes au gratin. Definitely recommend.

Enjoyed a delicious Restaurant Week dinner tonight . The clam chowder was very good as was my entree of Beef Trio and the coconut cream pie. Friends who had never dined here all enjoyed their dinner too. Our server was very attentive and courteous. Dakota’s had a pianist playing great music. Great evening!!

Little pricey but the food was good. Had almost a 2” steak that was under cooked for a medium rare. They fixed it. Liked the place a lot. Great location.

I ordered the tenderloin trio and was disappointed with my meat, it was grisly and chewy, I was very unsatisfied with it.

I went for the first time for my 50th Birthday. Staff was friendly and welcoming. The tables are close together so you kinda have to squeeze by others to get to your table. The service was very good. It was very warm that evening so at times had to wait little bit for water refill. The food was excellent and enjoyed. Little noisier then I expected but overall was a terrific experience. Food and service was very good.

Upscale restaurant with high-quality food, you get what you pay for. Side dishes are large enough for 2 people. Patio seating is wonderful for late evening and quieter than inside.

I guess when I noticed the weeds taking over and the shrubs not manicured in their scenic outdoor area with the featured waterfall, I should have gotten a clue. I had the bone-in ribeye and it was too tough to eat. My husband had the KING crab legs and was served the joints of the crab on a half of a crab leg. We complained and the manager stated "that's our crab legs." He did finally bring out another order of crab legs only this time there was NO crab leg just the joints of legs being passes off of CRAB LEGS which was what we complained of in the first place. Next thing we know they have removed crab legs from the menu for the night (we got there at 5:30 when they opened so it's not like they ran out. We ordered oysters on the half shell and they were good. I do not recommend the mushroom side as they were VERY dry and seemed over cooked as well as salty.
The coconut pie was outstanding and we were given glasses of champagne for our anniversary when we first sat down which was impressive; just a shame the main course was such a disappointment.
