Dakota's was established in 1984 and has been a downtown Dallas dining icon for over 20 years! Our Mid-Western Corn Fed USDA Prime Steaks are hand picked, and then Dry Aged for 4-weeks to insure tenderness. We then charbroil them at 1800 degrees to sear in the natural flavors! Customers ride down to Dakota's in a canopied glass elevator accessed from street level while viewing the 1,800 square-foot outdoor subterranean courtyard. This cool oasis is complete with a 5-tiered granite water wall,

Your choice-a beautiful patio, or a lovey dining room-only at Dakota's!

multi-tiered landscaping, lava rock fire pit and black granite bar. Dakota's patio has long been considered one of the city's most romantic dining spots.  Inside, the restaurant is decorated with a hand-cut Italian Carrera marble floor in a basket weave pattern, dark wood paneling, brown leather, marble trim and New Orleans style brass gas lamps. There are authentic art deco lamps and mirrors located in the back of the restaurant and stately classical wood columns - salvaged from an early 20th century beaux-arts Dallas home. The large French doors allow sunlight to stream through giving the dining room warmth and light.  Don't miss this underground jewel!

"4 1/2 Stars" - Dallas Morning News

"All of Dakota's beef is USDA prime and dry-aged for four weeks, resulting in a seriously tender, flavor-intense piece of meat. Ours was seasoned simply with a sprinkle of salt and had flavor nearly gamelike in its intensity. The next day, we were still delighted by the leftovers." - Kim Harwell, Dallas Morning News

" At this underground downtown dining spot, start with the seared foie gras with roasted apples, followed by a bone-in, dry-aged filet. The sunken courtyard sparkles from a cascading wall of water and, at night, from the glimmer of tree lights from streets high above." - D Magazine

"The atmosphere and fare are perfect for entertaining clients, celebrating with colleagues or simply enjoying an impressive lunch." - Dallas Business Journal
