Open since October of 1990, The Dakota has been a pioneer in the culinary industry on the Northshore of Lake Pontchartrain. Their cuisine is influenced by the flavorful Creole cuisine, with Contemporary Louisiana. Other influences include the Southwest, California, and Asia using fresh local and seasonal ingredients.
The carefully selected wines pay tribute to the well crafted wines of North America while offering many of the traditional Old World styles of Europe.
In October of 2023, The Dakota moved to its new location in Historic Downtown Covington...just a block from the iconic Southern Hotel.
The Dakota continues to set the mark for what people look for when they dine – well crafted food, detail-oriented service, plush surroundings, and genuine hospitality.

    Absolutely amazing! We loved our time at Dakota. We had the appetizer special - Arancini- soooo good!!! The grilled Caesar salad was the best I’ve had. Our main entrees - duck and pork chops were incredible. The staff was kind and friendly. Really enjoyed ourselves.

    No wine list, the martinis were not good, the server was good but the rest was just not up old Dakota standards... just no "wow" factor which used to get every time.

    This is priced like a premium dining experience and it delivers. The ambiance is great, the menu, while somewhat limited, has enough to please anyone. The service was well paced and appropriately attentive. The food, however, is the real star. Everything was exceptional and attractively presented. If you're looking for a fine dining experience, the Dakota delivers.

    For a pre-Mother’s Day dinner, meal and service were great. My wife ordered the crab/brie soup and salad. My mussels in red curry sauce and the soft shell crab were very good. One downside to the afternoon. Dakota has a couch/chairs around a coffee table. What started out as six cackling hens grew to ten or twelve obnoxious Guineas. The manager asked to quiet down and motioned with his hands downward. The Guineas started to imitate the manager and the loud cackling continued. The tables next to us all had reactions to these obnoxious women. In the future, I will ask to be seated in another to avoid the ruckus. It would not have bothered me if the manager asked the hen conclave to leave. I will back. Again, good and service was great. Neighbors not so good.

    Trying to figure out where to park was a nightmare. They should have signs directing to the parking area.
