Very pricey for what you’re getting. The bacon appetizer was worth it. The wines are overpriced. The bone in fillet was over cooked.

We had an awful meal at Council Oak, where we are regulars. And the last meal wasn’t so hot either. We had to send back my steak (served medium well to well when it was ordered medium) and TWO sets of stone crab claws, which smelled BAD and were clearly not fresh. We SHOULD also have sent back the lobster bisque (recipe seems to have changed and it was thick but almost tasteless) and the Caesar (despite having asked for light dressing it was almost soggy) and the fries, which arrived beautifully presented and quite cold.

On our last visit we also had to send back the stone crab, which just sucks, because the season is short and those suckers died so we could enjoy their delicious claws.

For a fine dining restaurant, they really need to do better!!

Wonderful presentation! The restaurant is beautiful and very big. Nice view of the waterfall outside the windows. The food was very good and the sides were definitely enough for two or more.

My daughters 🎉, wasn’t not seated at the appointed reservation time, The lightning was extremely deemed, not enough lighting in the dining area. We were the only African Americans seated in the back of the restaurant. I actually would have preferred better seating areas of courtesy . I guess there’s a preference depending on who you are. The manager that night walked right by a group of us with our even acknowledging that we were there. I will never return

Ordered medium steak
They came and when my husband said these are not medium the waiter who was not our waiter said it is the lighting it was clear it was not
We sent them back, steaks came back out with no pink went ahead and just ate them.
The manager did come over and speak to us was very apologetic, when he came back we said it was not better but never mind.
We have always raved about the steak house and had our family and friends join us
Don't know if we will come back to the steak house.

It's a lovely restaurant, beautiful location, and the service is very good. The food is generally good but for the price should be outstanding. The wine selection is also good but overpriced. And it's not consistent. Our salad was excellent, the lobster bisque and escargot were good as well as the bone in New York Strip but my lobster filled with crab meat was horrible. I really should have sent it back! It was burned, the crab meat was disgustingly overcooked and dry and the lobster really hard to eat. A disappointment.

Exceptional service, Shannon is the best of the best, personalized service, always has a smile on her face! The food never disappoints, Lobster Thermador and Lobster Mac if you are looking for an experience than look no further this is the place. The band are true performers they play homage to the greats Louis Armstrong, Sinatra, The Beatles and so many more. Zero complaints, I can’t wait until my next visit!!!

Asparagus too big chewy

Another exceptional experience at Council Oak. Leyden took care of us on our anniversary and everything was just perfect! His personality would put anyone at ease when dining out at this time. Special attention was paid to distancing and we were provided with a little baggie to keep our masks during our experience. Leydens suggestions for dinner and dessert were fantastic. The escargot and the onion soup we had for appetizers never disappoint. My husband had the filet and it came out prepared to perfection. I decided to have the seabass for the first time here and it was really excellent which I don’t always expect at a steakhouse!

We ordered the apple crumble and chocolate cake for dessert. Presentation was so nice.

Wine list by the glass was very extensive. They even have Silver Oak by the glass!! WOW!

Thank you Leyden and Matt (the manager) for a lovely evening, see you again soon.
