Our server Makayla was outstanding. She went above and beyond to make our Valentine’s Day a wonderful meal. Also Juan the gentleman who served the water and hot towels is always on point. I look forward to going back.

The restaurant is in temporary location the ambience and the quality of food we’re not the same as it was in its old permanent location. It felt like eating at a banquet hall and the food wasn’t as good as usual either probably as you’re not using the regular kitchen?!?!

I love the place just this time was not good we had hair on our lamb chops the manager did have them remade and we took them home, no real sorry or anything so one of us ate the other was grossed out on our 6th anniversary dinner ordered desert to go 2 tuxedo cake was like they were a week old even the escargot was tasteless the bread basket was good I can tell you that not sure if you changed chefs and management but the place is going down you guys are growing the hotel and casino you really need to look into you food and beverage department before it’s too late to get it back under control

Can’t wait for them to relocate! Food and service were as good as ever, but the temporary digs leave something to be desired. I had the halibut and it was delicious, but the place lacks ambiance right now.

Amazing! The food was fantastic and the service was superb. The filet mignon was mouthwatering (better than I’ve had at the “big name” steakhouses) chicken dish was flavorful and cooked perfectly. The sides with this dish (homemade Italian sausage, broccoli rabe and roasted potatoes) were delicious! The mac and cheese and the duck fat hash-browns are splendid! I can’t wait to come back here and bringing a group of friends. I could not recommend this place more!!

The food and service were very good. The feel of the place was not up to par. Everything about the physical setting was off for a restaurant that portrays itself as high end. Curtained walls some 25 feet high. A drop ceiling from the 90s. Track lighting from an even earlier era. My guess (and hope) is that the restaurant's location is temporary, pending fit-out of new space in the "guitar" building that has been under construction at the Hard Rock.

Was excited to eat here but the whole family was disappointed. Food was subpar / steaks were dry, food came out room temp and pasta dish was not edible. Venue and service were great but what's a pretty venue with poor food :(

The whole experience was superb. Our server - Michael - top notch!! The food delicious. Only thing I would change is the dark/drabby courtains. Not sure if they are temporary or to cover something behind them while the renovation is completed, but that was the only thing that I would change.. Otherwise -food, service, etc, first rate.

Food was superb! My husband and I had the cap ribeye - outstanding! All sides are al a carte but keep in mind the servings are enough for 2-3 people. I had escargot - delicious and a friend tried the lobster bisque also fantastic - Be prepared to pay, but in our opinion well worth it.

We were disappointed in the steaks as they were not excellent like in the past.
Although the restaurant has been relocated to a ballroom it was set up very nicely.
We will definitely return when the new location is opened.

We had a semi good experience. The food was great the service was really good. Our reservations were at 845pm and whuke we waited over 20 mins they were sitting people that just waked in before us.
Location: could be better since it was not at tye reataurant rather a banquet hall inside the hard rock. Ik assuming this is due to all the construction at the hard rock. We walked through three casinos to get to the location and i believe we developed lung cancer on the way to the local. LOL I HAD NICOTINE in bedded in my nostrils during dinner.
The beer selection was limited and wines were not fully stocked.
WE might return upon completion of the restaurant.

The food was good but a bit overpriced. The restaurant was in a temporary space inside the ballroom which impacted our experience. Good overall and we enjoyed ourselves but won’t be our first choice next time at the Hard Rock.

We went to Coucil Oak for "date night". We were greeted as we arrived by hostesses with great positivity. When we were seated our server Madison came to greet us immediately as well as we were given our hot towels to clean our hands. Madison was a great server and his opinion on what to eat was spot on. We enjoyed every morsel of our meal and even enjoyed the leftovers the next day. At the end of the night we were greeted by Lisa one of the managers with a magnificent smile and awesome positivity. We enjoyed the food, the atmosphere and the wonderful staff. We will definitely be dining here again and next time with family and most likely with friends. We have also expressed to our friends that they must try the food here. Our complements to Pedro the chef on that night.
