    Dakotas: Well Known and Very Nice

    2.5 out of 5 starsHelpfulness

    Dakotas has been opened since 1984 in downtown Dallas and is one of the haute cuisine spots in the Dallas underground. Very tastefully decorated, there is inside dining as well as large glass doors which open out into a lovely outdoor patio area with a 3 level waterfall, (pictured here, looking down from street level).

    Favorite Dish: We started with a calamari appetizer for two which was lighted battered and fried with a lime chilpolte aioli and served on the side with pickled red onions. Then we chose 2 different Sea Bass dishes. Grilled Sea Bass over garlic whipped potatoes with a spicy red chilli broth and the other was Sea Bass Wellington (sea bass in pastry) over au gratin potatoes with a very rich creamy sauce. Both very different but awesome. The house wine was good too and the hot homebaked bread, delicious. A very popular place especially at lunchtime in this area but very relaxing and quiet in the evening.

  • Dakotas: The Urban Experience

    by gregfife Written Jul 13, 2007

    The entrance from the street is only an elevator situated in an odd little triangle in the intersection of busy streets in Downtown Dallas. I think it is best for a business dinner or lunch. The bar is good for those afterwork martinis or scotches. The food is a little fu-fu but it is good and flavorful. Just don't expect to sit down to a big Texas meal.

    Favorite Dish: Its a lunch thing actually. Its the Square Meal special. Three courses served on square dishes. Its always good and just the right portion for lunch.

    Dakotas: Nice stop if you're downtown

    by wondering2 Written Mar 31, 2005

    Underneath Lincoln Plaza, this is a lovely restaurant with very nice food and a lovely outdoor patio. A tunnel connects you to The Fairmont Hotel (downtown).

    Favorite Dish: Anything you order will be wonderful. Prices vary. You can get pasta or a beautiful steak.
