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.

Very disappointed that we made the reservation, drove one hour and have hard time looking for parking. They were closed! If it was closed it should be off the list.

Everything about Dakota’s Steakhouse was excellent! I left an Ambiance at very good only because I’d have preferred it to be slightly brighter. I took my wife here for our anniversary; the atmosphere was quiet and they offered us a secluded table. The service was efficient and professional. The food was proficiently cooked and blended the seasonings without taking away from the natural deliciousness of the steaks.

Excellent, excellent establishment!

What is there not to like about a swanky, underground steakhouse? The atmosphere is speak-easy like but the service and food are fine dining at it's best. I took the entire family of 9 here last night for a celebration and the experience was top notch. James and Matt took excellent care of us from the moment they walked us to our private dining room. We ordered multiple appetizers, salad varieties, and main course options. All were prepared impeccably with the temperature, presentation, and flavor we expected. If there was one negative to the night it would have to be the signature cocktail selection. I tried 3 of them and 2 of them just didn't work for me.

First time visitors, we were a few minutes late, our driver couldn't find the restaurant. The staff was understanding and accommodating. I had the cowboy cut she had the salmon. Both were excellent.

We will return!

I stumbled upon Dakota’s online while looking for a special restaurant to celebrate our 10 year anniversary. After reading a bit of history on why this restaurant was built underground, I knew this was the place...and hey, the pictures of the inside and view of the waterfall didn’t hurt either! In my reservation request, I asked to be seated by the waterfall to celebrate our anniversary and they happily did so. They also brought out complimentary champagne with our dessert! Beautiful, live piano music was playing the entire time. Absolutely wonderful place!

I'm sorry to say that my lobster was mushy. I was so looking forward to a great dinner, I was disappointed in that. The steak, on the other hand, was spectacular!

Dakota's was amazing. Sat in the bar area. Fantastic wine selection, meal was outstanding, and after dinner coffee was the perfect ending. The server was very friendly and very accommodating. I will be back.
