    We were fortunate to have Rhonda as our waitress and she was pleasant and efficient in every respect. When my friends' steak appeared medium and medium we were reluctant to mention it, but we finally decided to say something in the nicest way possible. She whisked the steak away and appeared with a new steak, perfectly cooked.

    It was a nice place, but it was a bit noisy, you could barely hear the waiters and vice versa. I loved the food it was great! Prices are a little on the pricey side, but over all it was a nice place to eat.

    We've been waiting over a year to dine there. For the prices, we at least thought it would've been fulfilling. I have no problem with spending money on happiness, my bill totaled $303, but I wasn't at all pleased with the food we had. Lobster cakes, shrimp cocktail, oyster's, and porterhouse steak was not to our satisfaction. Too little, and no seasoning. Was a good experience, but a first and last time for us.

    While Council Oaks is one of the most expensive steakhouses I have visited, their food is normally excellent. One of my biggest complaints ,is spending large amounts in a noisy restaurant and having to lean in to hear the person next to me

    Four guests. Table in the lounge area. Service very spotty. Took a long time to bring the bottle of wine we ordered. First ,they brought the bread, no water service,or drinks.the food was good, it usually is. They have a new dessert menu. The pumpkin cheesecake was very good. The French press coffee is now being served in "Turkish style" cups. They need to go back to traditional cups. The metal handle on the cups gets too hot , difficult to touch.

    Group of 4 before a show. VERY comfortable seating. VERY attentive service. Bread basket was good. I thought the chopped salad was below average. Crab cake was excellent. Filet Mignon was excellent. Lobster Macaroni was undercooked and I didn't see any lobster. Plus needs some crunchy bread crumbs on top to add that extra bite. Wild mushrooms were average. Coffee and desserts were nice. A nice place to eat when at Seminole Hard Rock.

    The main course was not prepared to our liking: 2 out of 3 steaks were returned to the kitchen; side dishes were cold; dessert (Volcano) was ruined with too much 151 and was served melted. Overpriced for the quality of food served.

    I made a reservation on open table and simply noted in the reservation that we were celebrating a birthday and would like to sit indoors. I did not even mention the name of the individual having the birthday. The restaurant sat us at a nice table inside. The service was excellent. And, without saying anything, the waiter brought out a large piece of cake and delivered it to the right person! The food was amazing as usual. I would recommend this restaurant

    The food is good. The noise level though is terrible. You can't have a conversation. They had a rock band playing in the bar of the restaurant. I don't understand why. Elegant dining with rock band playing next to you inside the restaurant do not go together.

    Unfortunately, the crab cakes were mealy and over cooked. Usually, the food is delectable. We were rather disappointed on my b day to have a lesser than excellent dining experience. The service is bar none the best ever. I would expect the food would rate a 10 to match the prices

    The selection of food was very nice. The selection of deserts was amazing but the quality was inconsistent. All of the food was well prepared but much of it was poorly presented. For example, the salad area offered wedges of lettuce with bacon and blue cheese but because the servings were very large, customers had made a mess trying to take smaller portions. There was a very nice sounding cake but it was very difficult to slice and, again, customers had made a mess trying to take a piece. The cake should have been pre-sliced and the wedges of lettuce should have been cut into half the size. Service is better for groups. Kudos to all the staff that cleared dirty dishes, even if they weren't assigned to our table.

    From the moment you walk in you know this is going to be a wonderful experience. The quality of the food and the choices are the best I have seen in a long time. The service was just as good. The only thing that was a bit disappointing is they only give you one alcohol drink per person. The price that they charge you should be able to get more than one!

  • Very Poor Organization
    OpenTable Diner Since 2013
    Dined on 9/6/2014
    We had a 6:45 reservation. When we arrived at 6:30, the place was in panic. Several people who had reservations at 6 and 6:15 still had not been seated. We were told that they had to accommodate several "Premium" patrons. In other words, your reservation doesn't mean a thing if a "Premium" person wants your table. We were lucky as we found 2 seats at the bar. Service was wonderful and the food was exceptional. If you have a party of 3 or more, I would avoid this restaurant unless you have no commitments for the rest of the evening. If you have show tickets, eat before you get to the Hard Rock.

    For dining in a Casino environment it is certainly excellent! The front desk is maybe a little to mechanical, not exactly the welcoming host , you expect in an upscale Restaurant. The service at the table is certainly excellent. Its a great getaway, gambling, great food and you can stay over night...

    I thought the food was just OK, fair and rated it as such. Had escargot, tuna tartar, a salad, filet mignon, and onion rings. the escargot and tuna tarar were not bad, but the salad had too much dressing, the steaks were over cooked and the onion rings were oily. Overall, not horrible. Just not worth the money. I expected much better.
