A very steakhouse decor, it is bold and elegant. They have a very professional staff. Located in the Seminole Hard Rock Hotel near the main entrance. Its fine dining the menu lends towards steaks. I had ice tea, scallops with truffles and mushroom risotto.

The food was pretty good but very expensive for such small portions. If you want a nice steak, I recommend this restaurant. The service is also very good and the outside seating is very peaceful and elegant.

Terrible, I ordered the bacon for an appetizer. It was 3 pieces of all fat. We split the wedge salad which our waitress said was more that enough for 2 people. This was one of the smallest wedges ever, but it was good. Now for the main course. Deb had the surf & turf. The steak was very good, cooked... More

It's rare for me to normally frequent a place as elegant (and yet casually comfortable) as the Council Oak, but for those times when the finer things in life can be enjoyed, a fine dining experience at the the Council Oak is unparalleled. Arriving to the Casino just after 5 PM we were seated within seconds by the accommodating greeter.... More

I ordered bone in ribay, the price was $63 in menu. The waitress didn't ask me anything my order, in my check I saw $94. And I asked about this fall, she explained me there are two steaks with the same name, and she didn't specified what exactly I want! Manager (Juan Horta) decided reduce $12 and after third question... More

counsil oak was one of my dearly favorites restaurants ever. I recently went with my 2 kids, quality of the food was not impressive, my fish was even cold inside, the appetizers including the tuna quality was awful, is a shame that this great restaurants can have such a big change in such a short period of time. What could... More

We spent a great night of gambling at the hotel and were luck enough to get into Council Oak. Our Server was great, friendly and very knowledgeable about the menu. He made great recommendations and kept the service rolling smoothly! No champagne glass ever went empty. The Wagyu steak simply melted in your mouth, the flavors were just perfect on... More

Food was great, service very good, but the noise level made the whole experience intolerable! I have never experienced a venue so noisy. The waiters had to speak to my wife and I separately in order to hear - and we were at an intimate table for two! This is the exclusive restaurant at the Hard Rock Hotel - the... More

If you are in the Fort Lauderdale area you must try this steakhouse. It is located in the hard rock casino but don't let that fool you. This place is five star all the way. Most people go to restaurants for good food but if I'm paying for good food I must have good service because after all we are... More
