    The perfect mix of music and great food. The food enhances listening experience, and the music enhances the food. It's the perfect dance! Read more

    Still overpriced food for the quality but convenient for a show... a captive audience.

    Expensive, not entirely sure it's worth the price but great concert venue!

    The standard line on the Dakota is that it has the best food of any jazz club in the country. Read more

    The potato leek and arugula soup is just the best!

    Poutine is awful. Had fries that weren't quite done. And where the heck was the 'brown sauce'?! Non-existent!

    Alison R · June 17, 2014

    Along with Yoshi's in San Francisco, this is one of the two nicest jazz clubs I've ever been to.

    Catch the late show, sit in a romantic booth and order from the late night happy hour menu for the perfect (inexpensive) date

    I've never had oysters as phenomenal. And if you are with a group not as fond of oysters as you, the bread that comes with it dipped in the sauce is heavenly.

    Great food, great service and a wonderful atmosphere

    Leonora Allum · August 2, 2013

    Don't tip on the admission fee that is added onto your food and drink bill.

    Paul Barber · July 6, 2013
  • Paul B.

    If you are there for the music, before they seat you, ask if your seats have an unobstructed view of the stage. Many don't and are sold at same price without warning.

    Great atmosphere! Great "date" spot. We could actually talk and the music was great. Only Downfall no ranch dressing 😳! The food was great - Salmon Sandwich yummy!

    Their pisco sour is one of my favorite cocktails in town. Bitter blood orange juice and honey peppercorn syrup. Amazing.

    Claudia Holt · February 18, 2012
  • Charles E.

    Lots of alcohol. If that's not what you're after, keep going. Great steak though!

    Even the knee wall next to the bar is a pretty good spot to sit.

    Favorite spot to hear jazz in Minneapolis. The knee wall isn't too bad of a spot to sit.

  • Gary H.

    An intimate place for incredible music, food, and drink. Check out late night groups like Viva Brazil.

    Cover for the shows are waived w/ a $20 per person purchase on Foodie Nights. Live music from folks like Les Nubians, Judy Collins and Bobby Lyle.

    Nachito Herrera playing? Don't sleep. Less $$ than the big names that come through, but consistently amazing on the keys.

  • Mpls.St.Paul Magazine

    Try the Jalapeno Poppers. These trashy-wonderful bar menu poppers are stuffed with fontina cheese, wrapped in speck ham, and lolling in chipotle cream.

    Mpls.St.Paul Magazine · March 14, 2011

    So the bathrooms are really clean. I say that's a plus.
