Since opening its doors in 1984, Dakota’s is a venerable Dallas steakhouse serving classics like filet mignon, bone-in ribeye and Wagyu tenderloin alongside fresh seafood and shareable plates like shrimp cocktail or loaded baked potato. The bar pours from a global wine list and serves classic cocktails. This Arts District restaurant sits 18-feet below ground allowing guests to descend via a canopied glass elevator to an elegant dining room decked out in marble and dark woods and an open-air patio centered by a five-tiered waterfall.
