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.

Service was outstanding, food was good but menu limited, especially if one is not a meat-eater.

Good place to celebrate special occasions.

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 .

This is my new favorite place. Food, ambience and service are always top shelf. My wife and I usually grab a seat by the window in Tim's section. He is very attentive, personable and always suggests great items to try on the menu. Everything on the menu we've tried has been outstanding.

I got Oscar style filet from the one in Tampa and it came out with a big king crab leg on the top of my filet like described. This time they brought out the crab shredded in a HOT SKILLET on the side of my filet. The crab was burning in the skillet. By the time I got to the crab it was burnt to a crisp. Disappointed.

Outstanding food and service. Venue is as good as it gets. Brand new, open, clean, view of the kitchen. Food is always a solid B+ to A-. Never a bad meal. Even though a steakhouse, king crab was the winner.

Great table and great service. Escargot app and salmon dinner were extremely bland. Steak, chicken and all sides were spectacular. Some of the prices, particularly for the king crab legs ($90) simply doesn't make sense. I don't mind at all paying a lot for a great dinner but sometimes it feels like the price is exorbantly high just because you want it to be and it makes me not want to pay for it. I may come back to the bar sometime where a high noise level feels more appropriate than in the dining room but I don't think I'll come again for dinner.

The food is always superb. Still think it’s quite expensive compared to other steakhouses though. My only complaint of the night was that my reserved table was not available when I got there I had to wait a while I also was seated in a horrible area where people kept walking by.

The ambiance, drinks, and service were what you would expect for the price and were terrific. However, they're obviously applying sous vide techniques to the steaks and it failed miserably. The bone-in ribeye had no char but good marbleization. Yet, unforgivably, the 8 oz filet mignon requested at medium, was actually greyed and tough. It's been a couple of years since I've sent back a meal, but at these prices one would expect a place with 'steak' in it's name to have this perfected.

The service is amazing. The food is great. Their bread before meal is awesome, 3 different kinds and a good amount. I didn't get any drinks just coke & water. The salmon and mashed potatoes were amazing. I came here twice during my vacation because of how good it was.
