Our server Lee was efficient and accommodating. We had arrived a bit late due to traffic and had a comedy show to attend. Realizing this he had our cocktails on time damn good Old Fashion. Our appetizers arrived soon thereafter. We both had the shrimp cocktail followed by the 8 oz. Filet mignon with creamed spinach and scalloped potatoes. Delicious and made the show on time.

The ambiance and service were fantastic. The steak was delicious but not a 10. The steak was a little nervy which was surprising for prime but the taste great . I gave it 4 stars because of that . The sides were great (creamed spinach and truffle fries) the apps ; bacon and onion soup great! Just the steak for the price of 80.00 should have been better . Would go back!

Arrived at the venue, very busy, but seated fairly quickly, with reservations. After we sat, waited about 10 minutes to be contacted. Then after that, different parts of our "team" greeted us to say they were going to be taking care of us. Each one said they will be with us shortly. It was about another 10 minutes at least until we were asked to order. Way too long with a "team." There were only two of us and around us were mainly larger parties of four or more. Their tables were taken care of with a lot of attentiveness. Our small party, it seemed, did not merit their time. The food arrived after a long time too. The food was their savings grace. It was great. We noticed in the distance a couple did enter after us and left at least 30 minutes before us. We were left in limbo, as if invisible, and had to wait for one of the "team" to check how our meal was, and then it was at least 20 minutes to wait to even try to get their attention to get our check at the end. It took us over two plus hours for our dinner and way too much time waiting. Just made our experience disappointing like as if our bill was too small in comparison to the larger parties to matter to them. Stephen B was our main server .

This was my husband’s first time at Council Oak. We were celebrating his birthday & I couldn’t have been happier. The experience was amazing from beginning to end. It was all due to the great service we received from the serving staff, Eddie, Juan & I can’t remember the name of the third gentleman that was part of the team. We felt very welcomed & the food was outstanding. Juan Horta the manager also passed by to wish my husband a Happy Birthday & ask how we were doing. We will certainly dine at Council Oak again.

They were out of the lobster, also offered us the chocolate soufflé for dessert so we ordered our cappuccinos and we’re excited to celebrate and then came over and said they had no More and had to cancel.

Said a manager would remove from the check and never did, after waiting so long we just deciding to leave.

This was a special occasion for us.

We can back for my brother’s birthday and we had a great time. The service was outstanding by our server John and the meal was absolutely delicious. I had the salmon this time and it was so moist and cooked to perfection. We had a side of cream spinach, seasonal mushrooms, potatoes au gratin and lobster Mac n cheese. Needless to say we had to take home food. But we really enjoyed our time here and will come back again.

They seem to have minimized their menu from the last time we were there that seemed disappointing when you go to a steakhouse and want a lot of options for the money we were paying. But the server was excellent.

Dinner was great. Seating was a bit of a mix up, but handled well. Drinks were great as were most of our meals. One disappointing thing is that the food took a bit long to come out and when it did, one meal was closer to medium well when we had ordered medium rare. While they offered to remake it, we weren't sure how long it would take (and neither were they). I feel like that could have been handled better. Other than that, I'd recommend this Steakhouseand will certainly return.

I like the old Council Oaks better. Too bad they ruined a good thing. The new restaurant has zero ambiance. The bar has no ambiance. It is loud and annoying. The food is not as good as it once was- although the Seafood Tower is still fantastic. Service is so-so. This is like dining in an overpriced loud cafeteria setting. We will not be going back- too bad because we enjoyed the old Council Oaks very much.

Service was fantastic as expected at a restaurant of this level. However out of three steaks at our table, one was perfect, and two of them might as well have been served on a hamburger bun. I ordered a medium rare filet and it was the most well done steak I have ever eaten. We also ordered the Brussels sprouts which I thought was good but the other two did not enjoy. Lastly we got an order of lobster Mac n cheese that was easily forgettable.

If you want a great steak I would recommend Abe n Louis in Boca Raton. I have heard nothing but good things about Council Oak and it turned into the worst steak I have ever had. Was a huge disappointment and became a running joke during our weekend trip to the Hard Rock.

My meal of surf and turf was excellent

My wife got the filet. It was butterflied to ensure a good medium. Still came out very medium rare and was not edible. Looked butchered. Taken off the bill when management saw plate without us asking

The steak tartare app was not appetizing but the oysters were delicious. The Caesar salad was ok the tomahawk steak was cooked well and seasoned well the apple crumble dessert was awful and returned . Service was excellent and very apologetic. This is an expensive restaurant no doubt plus the wine list is over the top expensive but it’s deep and well thought out .
