Council Oak Steakhouse - Seminole Hard Rock Casino Tampa
Great steaks and desert to die for.Wonderful dinner celebration. Steaks were perfection. Waiter very attentive and knowledgable. Always get the desert.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat ExperienceI've been searching restaurants in the Tampa area that served Alaskan King crab and I came across this restaurant and noticed one review for Council Oak's Alaskan crab. It was out of the park delicious which was perfect since we dined there for my husband's birthday and he always requests Alaskan king crab on his birthday. They even broke the crab so we didn't have to work to eat our food which we didn't mind but it was a nice change. It's a little pricey which we knew a head of time but totally worth it for a truly delicious meal and great service. We will be sure to go back there again.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMOur food and the overall experienceOur food and the overall experience were excellent.4/28/2013 12:00:00 AMFood, ambiance, and especiallyFood, ambiance, and especially the service were excellent. Could not have been a better dining experience. Steaks were prepared to perfection, not often found even in the best steakhouses. Nice selection of appetizers, salads, and sides.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMCelebrated anniversary weCelebrated anniversary we enjoyed the night.

Service was outstanding. Food was over the top fantastic. And most important - a small problem (fish a little overcooked, I should've just ordered a steak like the rest of my party) - was resolved quickly, manager came over, barely seemed like a problem.
It is pricey but I tasted my friend's steak - and you get what you pay for - yummy. If we're back in East Tampa - we will come back for certain.4/18/2013 12:00:00 AMThe salad the came with theThe salad the came with the filet was great.

Very romantic and the staff was perfect the food was prompt and so was the service4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMSuperb food. BeautifullySuperb food. Beautifully prepared and presented. Impressive ambiance. Excellent service. Somewhat noisy. Expensive. I consider it a great place to impress guests and for special occasions. Burn's has long been considered Tampa's finest place for steak. Burn's is quieter. The food and service is far better at the Council Oak Steakhouse.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMThe food taste was a stepThe food taste was a step below Ruth Chris steakhouse. We were a little disapointed in the selection and quality of the food. The service was excellant. Food presentation was good. The noise in the room was annoying at times. I would try it again to see if the food quality was just a fluke.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMBest crab cake in Tampa byBest crab cake in Tampa by far. The steaks were off the charts and the au poivre sauce was mouth watering. The lobster mac and cheese was marginal. I would definitely go back and recommend it to others.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful Birthday Celebration!Celebrated my daughter's 33rd birthday. It was a delicious, relaxing meal. She is still talking about it!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMOur dinner was delicious,Our dinner was delicious, the restaurant was just what we were looking for for this particular evening. I do not recall our waitress' name unfortunately, but she was very professional and just excellent.
It was a great experience.3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMCouncil Oak never dissapointsCouncil Oak never dissapoints and tonight for our 21st Anniversary they nailed it again. We started at the bar to listen to a duet playing on the stage. I had a Raspberry Martini and my husband a cold Blue Moon. We ate appetizers at the bar, I had scallops (2 on the plate) - wish there was a bit more drizzle of balsamic glaze and a better 'sear' but I still rate them a 7. The Crab Cakes my husband had were mixed with fish and crab probably 60 fish 40 crab but tasty. Because of the mix, I would suggest a light honey mustard based sauce to accompany - my rating- 8, because there were plenty for us to share. We went to the hostess promptly at 7 and were seated immediately in a private booth. Ordered ribeye and spinach - both 10++++3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Experience To Beat The BandRemarkable experience. Requested a romantic booth for our anniversary. Felt secluded for our special occasion but not neglected by the staff. The 3 different seasoned salts served were unique and wonderful, especially the fireplace sea salt; oh the aroma. The cowboy steak cooked perfectly to order, the recommended lobster mac and cheese melted in our mouths and the recommended wine choice brought everything together and was priced right. And our little dog thanks you for the long-bone. Being from the east coast of Florida we can't become regulars but sure can't wait to go back for another fantastic meal. Thanks Council Oak!3/28/2013 12:00:00 AMWe could hear music from theWe could hear music from the lounge that was competing with music in the dining room. The bread was excellent and our server was terrific. our steak was prepared perfectly medium rare and the crab legs were sweet and meaty. The asparagus and garlic mashed potatoes were good but overpriced for sure. We came for a birthday celebration and were disappointed to find a 30 minute wait for dessert preparation. Perhaps the server should mention that when taking order.3/26/2013 12:00:00 AMWinner!This place is the best! Try the corn, its amazing!3/24/2013 12:00:00 AMI have dined here many timesI have dined here many times and keep returning. The food is great and the service equal.
i did learn something new Saturday night. The table where we seated was next to the bus persons drop off and the clatter of dishes and silverware took away from the otherwise perfect evening.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing food & serviceThe food and service was amazing. I made reservation via open table and let them know it was for my husbands birthday and they knew when I came in and they brought cake out at the end of the meal with out me having to figure out when I could ask them to do it. It was seamless and discreet. Absolutely loved it.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMHad a wonderful, nicely pacedHad a wonderful, nicely paced dinner. Our server, Danny, was knowledgeable and attentive.
