    Overall:

    We all thought the food was amazing at the Dakota Grill, the service was too, I was quite shocked when the bill came but on closer inspection it was the drinks that pushed up the price so not too bad. We all said we would come again. Thank You

    Fresh, delicious and a lovely night! Second time back, this time for the father-in-laws' birthday. The drinks could have been served faster, however everything else was spot on. We all had steal, and my rib-eye was cooked to a perfect medium rare. The hand cut chips were out of this world, and our starters and desserts were stunning. Drinks were too expensive either. We have the in-laws on board now, so we will be heading back for our third visit soon.

    Overall:

    Everything a steakhouse should be. I liked the dark intimate ambiance, the service prompt and the staff were engaging and seemed happy. I was expecting a little more choice on the grill menu, and we also had to get and find staff to order more wine. The portions were spot on and we will definitely be returning to explore dessert.

    We needed somewhere for a Sunday evening and the Dakota was excellent. Catered for all the family including a rather unadventurous 12 year old who suddenly decided that he would eat mussels and duck!! Low on staff being Sunday night I guess but overall a success.
