  • This time we saw Manhattan Transfer. I used to hear them on the radio and liked some of their music. We shared a cheese plate for an appetiser with some wine. We both had their duck dinner...  more »
  • The delightful thing about this venue is the intimacy of the stage and the performer. We had great seats for an affordable ticket price and delightful service. The food is pricey, so be prepared. But....  more »
  • While in Minneapolis you should start your stay with a night at the Dakota Jazz Club. The food is really good, the entertainment is even better. So many of the great artists perform in this intimate.....  more »

  • Food was very good, atmosphere was great. Went to early show and wish they would have let Paul Thorn finish his set list. I feel like we missed many of his best songs that we all came out to hear because of it. Paul put on a great show and has fantastic rapport with the audience.
  • The decor is great, and helps to create the perfect atmosphere for dining and listening to live music. Service is excellent and I never felt like we were waiting for anything. Although the place was full it never felt crowded. All in all it was a great experience!
  • Great and fun musical experience. The staff is super friendly and helpful. The food was really good and they offered some interesting choices. Price is on the speedy side.
  • Simply great. Great performers, great food and drinks, and the service is great as well. I should probably learn some new adjectives.
  • Where to start... Dakota basically has a monopoly on some of the better music acts that come through Minnesota and they know it. The food is decent at best and for the price that is completely unacceptable, the acoustics of the venue again, decent, the seating is troublesome as you are buying a seat at a table that you will share with others unless you go with enough people to fill a table, on that note, hope that you don't get one of the bad seats like the one we had this evening which was right outside the kitchen. There are venues where there "isn't a bad seat in the house" and this is not one of those places. Bottom line is this is one of the only places in Minnesota where some musicians will perform for one reason or another and if you want to see them you will have to suffer through the experience that is the Dakota Jazz Club.
