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 food subterranean courtyard allowing patrons to ding 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.

Food was excellent! Service was good. Service started off strong then slacked off once they got busier. Noise level was LOUD! We were seated in a corner by a large round top with 8 men who were drinking and very vocal. Wish I had known to ask for outside seating or one of their curtained rooms to help alleviate the noise. But, all that said, the worst part was the bathroom! Floor in stall was filthy, toilet roll dispenser falling off the wall, seat of toilet dirty. So disappointing as this was a special Christmas celebration with dear friends. I had contacted the restaurant twice to check our reservation and let them know it was a special night... but our table and evening was nothing special.

I dined at Dakota’s for my anniversary this past weekend. It was my second visit and first since the restaurant re-opened after closing. I was accompanied by my wife and 16 year-old daughter. I had the lamb chops and the others had filets. The restaurant, food, ambience and service were amazing. I highly recommend the new Dakota’s and will most certainly go back.

Love everything about Dakota’s! the service is very personable, and the ambiance it delightful! Yonathon also known as JoJo, was very attentive this evening. It’s always good to see the manger, Magdy almost every time I visit. And the food never disappoints. Steaks are very good with lots of choices for sauces and toppings, and the grilled Atlantic Salmon is a perfect dish with broccolini and melted leeks. I always order creamed spinach to take home, because it heats up so well for lunch the next day. I start most meals with the “tator tots” and Oyster Rockefeller. Never any complaints with Dakots’s! And my partner loves the Hog’s Head Manhattan!

I would first like to thank Jamie for an incredible experience, he is one of the managers. I hosted my sister’s birthday dinner.

The ambience is elegant, the entrees and dinner is impeccable. Our dinner party had a great server named YoYo. Jamie checked on us, he ensured that everything from the food and service was above par.

I am looking forward to going back soon and again and again.
I appreciate everything!

Thank you for everything!

My husband and I had an amazing visit to Dakota’s statehouse. The entire staff was very welcoming and we received prompt service (our water glass was never empty and we drink a LOT of water). Everything we ordered was delicious- we ordered wine, the wagyu beef tartar, New York strip, roasted chicken, Mac n cheese, fries, and the triple berry sorbet. The atmosphere was also great - the “patio” seating had a backdrop of the street side waterfall, they had tables with a privacy curtain, and then your standard white tablecloth dining room tables. The live pianist was very talented and a nice touch. Overall, great experience and glad to see Dakota’s back open.

Our server Candi was outstanding! The food was cooked to perfection. The manager seemed a little bothered that we wanted to compliment our server which was a little irritating considering this is what keeps people coming back or making recommendations for businesses.

Food was good from appetizer to entree. Didn’t order dessert so cant tell.
Service was not good esp when you are going to high end restaurants. I asked for bread 3 times, never came. I had ordered steak sauce with it which I ordered from the menu, never arrived. Told the waiter to remove it from my bill as I never received it. He said sure. No apology. Nada. Big disappointment. I wouldn’t recommend it as Dallas is known for steaks so there are plenty of good steakhouses with good service. Food is good but not that awesome that I can bypass the bad service.

We were seated immediately after my full party arrived, the host was nice the waitress was soo sweet and attentive. She even took our picture before we left. The only cons I have were the noise volume, it was very loud chatter and we couldn’t hear the piano player over it. The tables were a little tight but I wouldn’t say it was a deal breaker at all! My food was AMAZING! I also loved how the restaurant was underground.

Everything was great except in the main dining room, they pack way to many tables in a tight space , so you are constantly bumping into service staff! Takes away from an otherwise great experience!!
