Our first visit to celebrate my husbands birthday. Food and service was great. The fried lobster was amazing, and our steaks were cooked perfectly and tender.

Excellent wine list. Nice ambiance and good service. However, the food was just ok. We ordered stone crab (very good served with creamy mustard sauce), oysters (ok), porterhouse steak (was served cold and was mediocre at best), Brussel sprouts (just ok) and potatoes au gratin (very good). Overall an ok dinner and would recommend if you are at the Hard Rock. Otherwise, other steakhouses around town are much better.

We went for a pre theater dinner and the food and service were fantastic. Started with the bacon wrapped scallops then had filet for the entree. It was perfectly cooked. Also had scalloped potatoes that were very good as well. For desert we shared the Apple Crisp that was unbelievable.
Everything was very good!!!!

When i made the reservation, I requested seating in an area not busy (near bathrooms/ waiters area etc.). We were seated in a booth at one of the busiest areas of the entire night.

For that? Extremely disappointed. This was our first time at the restaurant - even the waiter stated “ I know you had requested to sit in an area not as busy…” so, that means the restaurant was aware.

:(

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.

I have been to many steak houses with my wife as we love to try new places. This places is now on our top five places we will definitely be back. Plus it’s in the hard rock so after dinner you have a chance to enjoy other places that a hard rock offers.
