Contemporary American
Entering its third decade, the Dakota has long been a favorite of jazz legends as well as patrons who savor the best of both art forms, the virtuosity of kitchen and bandstand. You can eat in the dining room and enjoy music second-hand from the adjacent club room; but you can also enjoy the music in the intimate club while making selections from either the bar or dining room menu—the best of both worlds. Patrons must note that online reservations through OpenTable apply to the dining room only. For show information and club reservations please call.

    It was our Anniversary and we had a great night of Louis Armstrong music with the Southside Aces, a very talented, noteworthy band! We've been here before and the music is #1, so don't plan on eating big meals. Small plates are the way to go. But I highly recommend the Dakota to anyone looking for some fabulous music in a romantic, cool atmosphere.

    One suggestion, the red beans and rice dish was not cooked completely. As a southerner, beans should be soft, but firm, beans were hard. Also, you may want to study how this dish is prepared in New Orleans, beans are in a bowl, a scup of rice on the center on top. Wings were great, and 99.9% of the time, I enjoy your food. Respectfully and best regards.

    The whole staff, especially the wait staff, are so knowledgable, courteous, and quiet when they need to be (when the music is being played, sung, etc). I go there so many times because of these outstanding amenities. They have a quiet way to let them know when you need another beverage or some other service. I have friends that see me all dressed up and ask "On your way to the Dakota?" and don't bother to wait for the answer as they know. When I come home, I think I smile the whole time just remembering how lucky I am to have a special place to spend an evening. For those ladies who do not think they should go out alone, get over it. I prefer to be alone so my time is spent enjoying what I came for: good music, good food, good service.
