Description: 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.

The food is beyond words. The levels of favors in everything including the deserts was out of this world. I haven't had a better meal. The bartender even asked me about a drink I requested that he wasn't aware of. Most would just say they couldn't make it. The server was exceptional. We will be back.

Ben Sidran and his small band entertained us throughout a great evening... The pork chop was excellent and our server bent over backwards for us the entire evening. Dakota has a great intimate, especially if you request a 1st floor booth.

Ramsey Lewis, Doctor John, Liz Wright, Madeline Peyroux, Bobby Lyle, Hugh Masakela, Pat Metheny, just to name a few artists we have seen. All within steps of the stage. And there's a balcony too. Great fun evening...later shows are better for relaxing afterwards. Plan to spend some money although they do have small plates. Not out of this world expensive... If you are planning a trip to the twin cities this is a great venue.

The club is in the heart of downtown and the staff were very friendly. It'd be helpful if they turned the lights down more during performances. They had overhead lighting I assume for the servers' benefit but it took away from the ambiance of the club.
