Steakhouse
A staple of Seminole Hard Rock, Council Oak Steaks & Seafood, a classic-American steakhouse fare guests know and love. Overlooking a lavish pool with opulent waterfalls, Council Oak’s new design features an open-kitchen, in-house butcher shop and dry-aging room outfitted with pink Himalayan salt walls, multi-level seating, and a glass-enclosed wine room highlighting the restaurant’s award-winning selection of more than 400 labels. The menu will offer USDA prime cuts of beef, signature raw bar and delectable seafood selections, and more. With the new open-kitchen, guests can catch all of the action as their meals are prepared by Council Oak’s chefs on the state-of-the-art J&R wood fire grills and Josper coal ovens, both of which help bring out all the subtle flavors in the meats. The perfect complement, Council Oak’s bar will offer well-known and approachable liquors, alongside an exclusive list of high-end spirits as part of the One Ounce Club.

Came here the day before Valentine’s Day and received absolutely amazing service from our waiter. He was extremely helpful he constantly checked up on us and every request we made was done immediately. Although hard to beat that the food was outstanding and was at our table within 15 minutes of ordering. We couldn’t be more satisfied and if they can replicate this service every time I can’t think of a better place to visit. Highly Recommend.

First time at council oak. One of my favorite steaks that I’ve ever eaten. Had a dry aged NY strip which was cooked to perfection. Perfectly cooked with crispness on outside from wood grill and perfectly medium and tender in middle. Sauces on side like Chimichurri sent it ever more over the top - not that it needed it at all though! Great live jazz band entertainment. Will definitely go back.

The chef did not know how to cook a porterhouse steak properly after two tries. Very disappointed.

Food quality is subpar. This is my Second time and it will probably be my last. The food is just OK. Definitely not worth the price or all of the hype. Although the surroundings are quite nice, the food does not live up to the expectation. We had one steak that was supposed to be medium, which came out cold and bloody. They took it back, and returned it charred and black. The other steaks at the table were very tough, difficult to cut with even a steak knive. Not a good steak house.

The service was good up until the very end of the experience. I decided to have appetizer and drinks, once the meal came out I took a couple bites of my $69 steak. Ask for it to be placed into a to good container along with several of the sides. Of course, when I get home the sides are there but my $69 steak is not. Very disappointed that I only took two bites and will not be able to partake again.

It was good-we have been there before – however our server never asked us if we wanted drinks – and then after a while he came over and he said- oh you don’t want drinks do you ?He wasn’t the best.

The service and food was great! The ambiance was great! However, a loud group was seated near our table and drowned out me and my fiancé conversation. Besides that, we will be back!

I like the new Council Oak . The atmosphere is very inviting and seating is not tight. I have probably eaten here 50 plus times and the food was better than it ever has been. The lamb chops were absolutely delicious and the NY strip was so tender you could probably cut it with a butter knife. Escargot and Potatoes au Gratin were also spot on. I had a couple different cocktails and they were made perfectly. We went on a Friday night and had a late reservation (10:15) and the service was good but not great. I like very attentive service and I felt like our sever was maybe tired from a long night or simply wasn't the best server for a restaurant like this. All in all it was great and we will be back.

Not a fan of wood grilled meat, so steaks were so-so. Servers very professional but service was very slow even though restaurant was not crowded. Maybe under staffed? We like NYY AT Coconut Creek much more!

New council oak after renovation is not par with similar restaurants. Oysters Rockefellar was tiny and grossly over cooked. Prices for cocktails silly high for value. Paid $20.00 for a martini (seriously?!) Music from bar was way too loud. Service good. Salads were good. Very clean. I miss the elegant, intimate, old Council Oak. Signage in casino was poor and long lines at restrooms. Renovation not thought out well nor accommodating. This restaurant no longer works for me.

Took a gamble on this place, and lost. Our server Philip was ridiculously absent and detached. Back waiters were wonderful, though. But, even they couldn’t save the overcooked octopus and the luke-warm steaks and sides. Heard good things about this place. Food was so sub par, though, I now know when they say “aged beef” they mean the time it spent in the kitchen getting cold before they slopped it onto our plates.

Server delivered appetizer and entree at same time, did not like that. I had the salmon which wasn’t enjoyable, my husband had the chicken which was salty. Just wasn’t the best experience at all.
