Great place to go with friends for an evening out. They have a wonderful restaurant, professional staff, and an easy transition into the jazz club. Great music.

We love this place. It is a great place for live music in an upscale yet very casual setting. The staff is friendly and helpful in helping you decide what to order!

If you like Jazz, than Dakota Jazz Club is the place to be. It attracks wonderfully, talented artists and has created a space where the music can be the focal point. Service and food are also top notch.

Having read mixed reviews about the Dakota's Restuarant, my wife and I went on a Saturday night in July.
After being seated in the upstairs portion of the dining room, we were promptly greeted by the waite staff. That was the only prompt event of the evening. Our Hendricks Martinini (Up) arrived warm. We then placed our 3 course menu order.
After some delay, the first course arrived. The Mushroom Tart was acceptable, the Scallops forgettable. 1 hour later, 90 minutes after placing it, our main course arrived. The Halibut was fit for airplane food. The Ravioli even worse.
Sensing our disappointment, the wait staff explained that the kitchen space was much too small for the venue." The staff worked miracles every night just to get the food out".
Under such circumstances, why not acknowledge it is a Jazz Club, serve drinks and bar food, and forget about trying to be a dining destination.

I am an A train member - the low end, but one none the less. I go to concerts at the Dakota about three times a month and generally have a good experience. Tonight, however, that was not the case.
I bought a ticket to a show online - my decision to attend this show wasn't the performer, but the combination of performer and being able to reserve my favorite seat.
When I arrived, I discovered that I had been "upgraded" to an inferior seat and someone else had been given mine. After informing me that there is a disclaimer on their website somewhere that gives them the legal right to do this, they tried putting me in a less inferior seat, but I was so angry that they had taken this liberty I couldn't enjoy the concert.
I left after twenty minutes of staring a the back of the performer's head. On the way out, the girl in charge of the A train memberships suggested that I ask the man sitting in my reserved seat if I could share the table with him since he didn't bring a guest. I was just appalled.
This experience breaks my heart becuase I really want to like this place and I've dumped a ton of money into it. But, this was too unprofessional and rude to ignore.

Jack loves his regulars and we love him too. The best steak we ever had (Ribeye).

cool music, amazing service, and a chef who really cares.

It's all good there.

I went here on a date that just happened to be on Friday the 13th, the day before Valentine's day. Unbeknownst to me, there was a special "valentine's" menu - with a drastically overpriced 4 course menu. The only item that looked vegetarian was the cauliflower soup. This $15 soup was approximately 1/3 or 1/4 of a cup of soup. With a piece of brioche with lobster on top! (To justify the $15 charge?)
Music = good. Food = overpriced, puny portions.

Went for a live jazz event and a romantic dinner. I'm not used to the shared table, but besides that the night went smoothly. The steak was good, the ambiance was haute and the show was superb-- albeit the prices ARE a bit high.

Pros: live jazz, good food

This was my first visit to the Dakota Jazz Club and I cannot imagine ever going back. We paid $65/head to listen to one hour of live music. $30 for a bottle of $7.00 wine. I ordered the ceaser salad. Actually the menu said something like "heart of romaine with ceaser dressing. It was $9.00 and one of the least expensive items on the menu. When the waitress took my order she asked if I'd like chicken as well on my salad. That sounded good, so I said yes. My friend ordered the crabcakes for $12.50.

When the food came, I nearly laughed out loud, the portions were so small! My heart of romaine with chicken ($5.00 extra) was about six romaine leaves and no more than 2 oz of chicken along with a tablespoon of salad dressing. My friend got three crabcakes no bigger tatertots. They did give us a small plate of bread as well.

The people sitting at the next table ordered the steak. I think it was $21. They got a six ounce steak, frozen fries, a little bit of grilled mixed vegetables and the bread plate.

The music was good, and while I found the menu limited and arrogant, the little food we did eat was good, too. Wait staff was fine as well, but for 200 bucks, I want excellent. What a disappointment!

Pros: One of theonly places to listen to live jazz in the Twin Cities

Cons: Eat before you go because the food there is overpriced and the portions are miniscule

We have been going to the Dakota for many years (plus 10) and the service and food quality has gone downhill while the prices have increased markedly. Since we dine there so often we are in a position to really know the menu and the prices and the prices have gone up and the portions keep getting smaller and the quality worse. The cheeseburger with fries used to be a good deal at $10, the fries were handcut and there was enough food to share, now the price is $11, the cheeseburger is smaller, the fries are frozen instead of fresh, and you get 1/4 the fries that you used to. The $19 steak deal is gone, now it is $26. The soup is always pricey and you get about a shallow 1/2 inch in a large bowl, if you pored it out you would get about a cup, maybe. The wine and liquor pours are stingy, get the beer, at least it is 12 ounces. You used to be able to order a small or large salad for about $4.50 and $9 respectively. Now, there is only once size salad and the price is about $7 to $9, and the server said that the salad is now medium sized. No, it's not, it is the small salad for a higher price. The Dakota prices are now as high as Vincents down the street but without the service, quality, or quantity.

Pros: Great national and local jazz.

Cons: The price, the service (used to be great, too much turnover now).

After a waiter dropped a tray full of drinks right next to our table, shattering glass and fluid all over us we carried on with a positive attitude about the dining experience we thought we were about to have. Then we waited one hour and ten minutes for our food while other tables came and ate in front of us. The server offered no explanation or consolation so we asked the person who appeared to be a manager why we did not have our food. Within 5 minutes the food was on our table, unfortunately it was not hot. After all this we waited again at the end of our meal for our check and our missing in action server for over 20 minutes. Three hours later we left unsatisfied (the food was not good enough to mention) and completely annoyed about the amount of money we just wasted.

First time there for lunch today and was very pleasantly surprised. The rooms are very nice; high ceilings, nice banquettes lining a good portion, very warm hues and nicely done artwork displayed. I ordered the butternut squash bisque, and my husband ordered the smoked chicken chowder. Both were excellent! The chowder had the perfect amount of spice, and my bisque tasted like simply-pureed squash with a dollop of tiny maple croutons, all which led to a great combination. We both ordered the cobb burger. I had read a couple of rave reviews and wanted to try. My husband doesn't get as excited about food as I, but he loved both of his choices. I did enjoy the burger very much. The burger is served on a thin slice of toast with a small amount of diced avocado and an onion ring on top, surrounded by the makings of a cobb salad--diced hard-boiled egg, bacon, tomato, lettuce, and blue cheese. The burger was perfectly done, and I enjoyed the flavors of everything else along with the burger. The only downer was the onion ring. I love a good onion ring, but this one had a cornmeal breading, which I found too sweet for the onion and not a good combo. We ordered a side of fries (because the burger comes alone), and I thought they were great. Fries are a debatable thing, though, and very much subject to personal preference. These were perfectly cut and just the right amount of texture--not crispy and not limp. Because we were on a roll, we split a flourless chocolate cake with orange mousse for dessert. I'm not one to combine chocolate with fruit, but separately, each of these was great. The orange mousse had great flavor and texture. We are looking forward to experiencing a dinner there!

Have dined at The Dakota (dining room, not bar) a handful of times and The Dakota never disappoints for atmosphere and music. Food has been slightly above average at best. Seems as though the chef is overly-ambitious with flavors, and seems to be just a half a beat off of being great. Beet and apple salad, great concept with truffled pecorino, was wrecked with the taste of too much raw fennel. Dessert of apple dumpling with cheese - good concept - ruined by too much oozing cheese, when just a dab would do nicely. Entrees are not memorable and overpriced - 3 scallops for $24?

Will go again for the entertainment - but may opt for dining in the bar the next time.

Dinner in the jazz lounge area is highly recommended and is great for couples (a booth is highly recommended) or a small group of friends. The cover is $5 and well worth the price--as it is not as overpacked like other Jazz clubs that have decent dining options.

Two menus were available--"Bar food" and a dinner menu offering innovative American cuisine. We opted for the regular dinner menu. In lieu of the mains, we ordered a handful of first courses (Beet salad, Beef carpaccio, Quail, and Crabcakes) and a sinful desert, a gourmet apple pocket with fromage. The portions were generous, given the high quality of the food. The beef carpaccio was amazingly spicy and flavorful and highly recommended. The quail and crabcakes were excellent as well. The beet salad was good, but not on par as with the other dishes.

Parking at the local lot for $4 was a bargain, in comparison to other big cities, and right across the street.

This restaurant is highly recommended for those looking for good food an entertainment in one spot

My boyfriend and I went to the Dakota Jazz Bar as an assignment for one of his classes. I had never been to a jazz bar before, but I was delightfully surprised. This was one of my favorite restaurant experiences. The staff was very respectful and the band that night was amazing! The food was delicious also. We reserved seats on the website, which was really hassle-free. Perfect date spot, except a little spendy (expecially on a college budget), but totally worth every penny!

15 min wait at table, no service. Had to finally ask.
Food was average at best. Bread came after we had finished our meal. Good timing huh? Manager acted like he had to go to the mens room and couldn't find it! End results..... NEVER AGAIN!

Being From St. Paul, I was skeptical when the Dakota Moved to Mpls. Not Anymore! This is a beautiful ambient space for Jazz. The food Is Incredible! The Apple Brie soup and Maple Frango Dessert are fantastic. The wait staff is very attentive and friendly. Most of the staff is from the old location, and they have hired some class managers. This is by far one of the finest Jazz clubs I have seen in the country. That is probably why they have a great lineup of artist. Lowell should be congratulated for being so instrumental in the Jazz and Fine Dining movement in MN.

The Dakota Jazz Club and Restaurant is still one of the best venues for Jazz in the Twin Cities. The seating is great and their sound system is marvelous, a significant improvement from their previous location (Bandana Square). However the food was a little disappointing. The Caesar Salad seems to have lost its zip and the Comfort Food menu item, Chicken Pot Pie, bore little resemblance to anything I remember and was rather bland. However, the Grilled Beef Strip Loin
in Hastings Reserve Jus was perfectly prepared and quite tasty.

We went to the new location expecting much more than the Dakota delivered. The robotic server barely reached our table in time to prevent us from leaving, the service only got worse through the evening, and the food was mediocre. We observed the rest of the room hoping that we were stuck with the "lemon" but it appeared the service was consistently poor throughout the dining area.
Nice ambiance, great music, but the rest is a flop. I wonder if they'll still be around next year??

This famous jazz club is hidden in the most disappointing mall ever. I have been there twice for happy hour and bar food standards. Both times, basics were disappointing (wings too greasy and underspiced, hamburger small and over-cooked, etc). The second time the beer was too warm. The bill is pricey for bar food, but happy hour deals are good. I say, go for the music. Can the entrees be much better? Your call. Call ahead or check the web site: it does close occasionally for private parties.

I love venaison. And tonight I had one of the best rib: tenderly wild. It was served in the nouveau cuisine style witch means you get a tiny of what the chef intends to match with the peace of resistence. I wish a balance could be reach between looking like a magazine and being at Perkins! Especially when the squash, the bruxelle sprouts and the betteraves are so delicious! Unfortunatly the sauce was to sweet, almost oriental. Finaly the French in me got desapointed when the salad looked fainted and tasted watery.
