    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!

    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.

    We were staying at the Hard Rock Seminole, and so decided to give the Council Oak a try. I am so glad we did! I had researched the menu in advance, so by the time we actually dined there, my expectations were pretty high. The restaurant did not disappoint. From our terrific server, Percy, to a heavenly array of dishes, particularly the tuna tartare and the steaks, it was a wonderful and memorable meal. We opted for cocktails instead of wine - I highly recommend the sangria and mojito martini. It ain't a cheap night out, but it's worth it for a special experience. I will definitely book there again when I'm in town.

    The selection included a raw bar, sushi, pastas, desserts, traditional brunch food. However, it's $65.00, and only includes one mimosa. If I'm going to pay $65.00, endless mimosas would be nice, since there is no way I can eat $65.00 worth of food. It was delicious, but I probably won't be back at that price.

    A few weeks back my firm had an outing at the Council Oak. While on prior occasions, the food was excellent, it wasn't so much this time around. Five of the twelve steaks in our party had to be sent back because they were a full well done as opposed to most medium rare and medium orders. The service was also a bit off on this particular night. Our water glasses were refilled sporadically and the bread seemed a bit stale. But I will come back in the hopes that this was an off night for a mostly stellar steakhouse.

    We just got back in town for the season and wanted to check out one of our favorites. There is new management there and let me tell you it is definitely for the better! Service was the best we ever had there and the food was better than I remember. There are new things like foie gras (delicious) and all the old favorite steaks & cold water lobster. Plus, you can finally get a decent glass of wine there! The new selections are outstanding and at a decent price for a steakhouse.They even have those slick new iPad wine lists which really helps me out. They were packed for a concert or something but we still felt a warm welcome and were never rushed. Impressive. I rarely write reviews but we had such a great time I had to share! ask for Tim!

    We had a reservation for 9:30pm and were only seated by 10:00. The service was very slow, it took about 15 minutes just to get bread on the table. Other then that, that food was great. We had the Alaskan king crab legs and a steak and they were both very good.

    This is my second time to Council Oak. The three with me loved their meal. I made the mistake of ordering, following the server's suggestion, the Prime Rib which is not always available. It was terrible. Chewy, fatty and dried out like the Yorkshire Pudding was. Rest of the meal was very good. So my score above excludes my personal bad experience and rates based on what the other three felt about their meals when ordering filets and sea bass. Sides were nice. Service very attentive.
