Council Oak - Hollywood and Seminole Hard Rock Hotel and Casino, Hollywood, FL
YumWe had a very enjoyable meal and have reservations again for this coming Sunday. Their lobster bisque was delicious without being salty, the steak was cooked correctly and had a wonderful taste. All the side dishes were very good.. By the time we had finished everything, unfortunately there was no room for desert. Next time!
Our waiter, Thomas, was very knowledgeable of all the foods and he had a great personality.6/9/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat service and the foodGreat service and the food was prepared just the way we liked it.6/8/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best!We enjoy fine dining, and have been to several of the highest ranking Zagat and Michelin rated restaurants. Council Oak has never disappointed us. We highly recommend this restaurant to all who crave that exceptional dining experience. From the moment you are seated until the moment you leave, the staff is attentive, the food is cooked to perfection and is plated in a simple but elegant manner. We just wish there were a Council Oak closer to us...6/1/2013 12:00:00 AMStandardService was fantastic, food was just ok, sixth time i've eaten here5/31/2013 12:00:00 AMbubsThe food was good and the wait was not long, less than 5 min.

I would give 10 stars for the service we received.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMPrime TimeDry aged prime bone in ribeye. Need I say more? The steaks are amazing and cooked just right. This joint is comparable to some of the best steak houses in the country but the price is completely reasonable. I will be back soon.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMVERY PLEASANT & RELAXING for BRUNCHAt Sunday brunch we were seated promptly and immediately offered our choice of drinks including endless champagne, mimosa or bloody mary. The dessert table is at the entrance which wets many appetites. There were so many stations available that it was hard to try all but what we were able to sample was very good--from the raw bar (terrific large shrimp) to breakfast items, pastas, carving station, sushi and more. Our only problem was getting more coffee without asking each time (we are large coffee drinkers).
Except for coffee, service was good and very friendly.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMSunday BrunchWhen entering the restaurant, you are greeted by a friendly professional host. Our reservation was noted and we were immediately seated, without any wait time. The table was roomy and the seats were very comfortable. The waiter was attentive, but not over baring. The choices of food stations were very impressive, the choices were fresh Sushi, fresh seafood, the chilled shrimp were gulf size and fresh, salad station, breakfast station, veggetables, rack of lamb, tender loin cooked perfectly and so tender I was able to cut it with my butter knife, pasta station and a devine dessert station. We were able to eat at our own pace without feeling hurried. In the end we were both satisfied and were ready to make the next reservation.5/26/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious!Best filet mignon I've ever had!

When we first got there the music was extremely loud, so much that we couldn't hear the waiter tell us the specials. After a few minutes of having to practically yell at each other to converse we asked if they could turn the music down some and they immediately did so. After that it was a pleasant dining experience. Exceptional food, and service was wonderful. Couldn't ask for more. The Lobster Bisque and Lobster Mac & Cheese was to die for. Hubby had the King Crab Legs and for the first time ever he could not eat what was given to him. Will definitely return.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent, but expensive.Enjoyed an excellent business dinner with some associates. Everyone in our group raved about their dinner. The service was excellent. The only downside was the prices. If not for that, I would dine there quite frequently.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMSteakIm a steak lover so i had to try this place out.

Overall, this dining experience was excellent and will come back for a nice dinner or special occasion!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOUTSTANDING bit pricey! TheOUTSTANDING bit pricey! The New York Strip (heavy cut - 20 oz.) is one of the best I ever had while my wife had the Queen Cut Prime Rib which she loved. Along with their Cesar Salad and Steak House Fries the meal couldn't be beat. A Grey Goose Martini ($16) and glass of Kendall Jackson Chardonnay ($9) is a bit much. Nevertheless, we'll surly be back.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMfood and service were outstanding.food and service were outstanding. menu varied and complete. great experience3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMWe have eaten there many times,We have eaten there many times, which is an indication of how much we always enjoy our experience at Council Oak. It never fails to satisfy our taste buds. Steaks come out precisely the way they are ordered. Not only do we recommend the restaurant, but we've taken many couples with us to expose them to this special dining place.3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMUsed to be awesome, but not now.I used to be a big fan of Council Oak.... unfortunately, I don't plan on going back soon. I had the aged porterhouse.. big disappointment, especially given the $69 price tag, my boyfriend had the filet, he loved it. So we were 50/50 on our food choices. The drinks were good....not great, the service was exceptional and made up for the disappointing food. I was surprised at first to see that the restaurant was not full... but then it I realized that the fake plastic candles and an awkwardly arranged plastic flower arrangement was unimpressive... The restaurant was somewhat empty for a Saturday night, I found it odd... last time I was here it was packed and it was wonderful.... not sure what changed, but I hope it changes back3/15/2013 12:00:00 AMCouncil Oaks OverviewWe really like this restaurant, having eaten there 5 times. Usually we go for a special occasion, which Council Oak is perfect for. An intimate setting or group gathering is great. Each time we've gone, they have had groups of at least 10. They know how to accommodate & integrate these parties, but able to keep intimate affairs intimate. Ambiance is very nice with music in the background, beautiful decor & a wall of windows to bring the outdoors in. The food has always been excellent with a nice selection of beef, chicken, pork & fish. Side dishes are ala carte & will serve enough for the entire group. Prices average about $90.00 per person, which ours included a few drinks, perfectly cooked steak entrees and two sides.3/14/2013 12:00:00 AMSouth Floridas FinestOne of the best restaurants in South Florida. Food, service, wine, atmosphere all top notch.3/13/2013 12:00:00 AMA la carte steakhouse; orderedA la carte steakhouse; ordered the 12 oz. filet which was cooked perfectly to my liking (medium) however the outside of the meat is so overly seasoned the first few bites I had all i tasted was salt rather than beef! Once I got closer to the center it was much better but for $56 I expect to enjoy each and every bit of meat, not just half of the steak! I would have rated the food much lower than a 4 had my date not ordered the fish and risotto meal which was outstanding and the asparagus we both enjoyed as a side dish. Very expensive steakhouse which is decorated very well and the high ceilings make this place feel quite large.1/1/0001 4:00:00 PM
