The food was mixed - the lobster and pureed potatos were good, but the fries were bland and tasteless, the brussel sprouts were burnt and bitter. I guess it depends upon what you order. What bothered us more was the service. We accidentally spilled a...More

Had a dinner date here. Cover charge was $20 per person which is not advertised but added to your bill. The food is expensive. The portions are good size. Be careful on ordering sides. The sides are to share so only need to order 1...More

There simply is not a better intimate place to see musical acts in the Twin Cities. The acoustics and sight lines are excellent. The wine list is good, and the food is similar to other restaurants of its type, though the emphasis is on adding...More

Came here for the Shelby J album party. Such a lovely venue, great staff, lovely cocktails and wonderful food. Wish we could come another night. Will definitely be a regular haunt if we come back to MPLS.

A wonderful intimate setting for great music. Not a bad seat in the house, We went to a late night concert so we just had drinks. If you have never gone I would highly recommend not missing out on this Minneapolis treasure.

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.
