    We went there for our anniversary and was not disappointed. We were never there before so we didn't know how the food was. I had the surf and turf and it was outstanding. The service was excellent. We will go again.

    First they had a live band playing and my girlfriend and I couldn't hear each other speak. We ordered some glasses of wine and beer and the waiter was not knowledgable about them at all. Ordered scallop ceviche to start, all the spices over powered the natural flavor of the scallop all you tasted was sweet and spicy notes. Steaks were decent, had better and worse but it's more expensive than Morton's, capital grille and shulas but not as good.

    This is a decent restaurant but way overpriced for the type of food that they offer. Crabmeat cocktail for $28!! Also be on the lookout for the waitstaff as they will try to steer you & your guests to the most expensive items on the menu. When only 1 person in our party wanted dessert they brought out 2 servings for the table & then played dumb when the check came. Highly unprofessional.....especially for a restaurant charging these prices. Save your money & go to Capitol Grille, Mortons, Lobster Bar, or even Ruth's Chris.

    I've been wanting to try this place for awhile since my husband gets to go here a few times a year for work dinners. We only had an 1.5 for dinner before the show we were going to was going to start so we skipped the apps & desserts. Need to be not in a hurry when dining here. Our waiter was really great on food knowledge & he understood we had a show to get too.

    It was my husband's Birthday Dinner Celebration and everything was absolutely flawless. We are both meat lovers and we rate our selection a definite 10, cook perfectly to the term we had asked for. Our waiter "Tim" was terrific, so professional and attended to our needs 100%.............. Last but not least, the "Chocolate Souffle" was to die for, it will bring us back in there time after time.... All in all, just a flawless night for a Birthday Celebration for my Love......!!!!! Thank you Council Oak and Open Table.....:-)

    Dined on 11/13/2014
    What a wonderful time we had at dinner. Our waiter was attentive and had great suggestions. I had the twin lobster tails and Rob had the veal chop. For my dessert I had the chocolate souffle with a birthday candle on it and it made my night. The french onion soup was great to start with and sides are enough for two to share. I would recommend this restaurant if you are at the Hard Rock in Hollywood FL.

    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 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.

    Have been here many times and consider food, service and atmosphere on the upscale side on dining. There was a table of some sort of business dinner that were very, very loud and annoying. I was not the only patron there that was upset. My sister and 3 friends had flown in from out of town for her birthday and they were a little shocked the manager said there was nothing he could do about the noise (we spent 400.00 + on dinner). I am a business person and I get that they were paying customers but was surprised they were not dining outside.

    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.

    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.

    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
