Wonderful Restaurant in the Hollywood Hard Rock

We celebrated a friend's milestone birthday here and thoroughly enjoyed the meal and service. Tucked away in the back corner of the enormous (and smoky) casino is this wonderful restaurant. Prices are about the same as a high end steak house (e.g. Capital Grill, Morton's, etc.) and our group of 10... read more

I was in bermuda shorts and golf shorts, so I thought maybe I wouldn't be able to enjoy a high end steak dinner during my visit to the Hard Rock in Hollywood. I was happy to find out that there was not a strict dress code and I enjoyed a wonderful Ribeye with sides of Lobster Mac and Cheese and... More

This is a true gem of a restaurant. We were a party of 11 and we were well taken care of. The staff is knowledgeable and attentive. I started with the French onion soup ($10). I have had French onion soup all over the world and I deem this the best of the best. It was quite flavorful. The carmelized... More

To start with the glass-walled meat viewing partition upon entry is pretty impressive and the bar area is lovely. I was extremely underwhelmed with this restaurant as I do enjoy my red meat. Our order took almost an hour before we received our entrees and our meals ended up coming at the same time. For the high price point the... More

Save your time, the food is ok and the wines are well over priced. Wait staff are like the dealers on the black jack tables. Working for tips.

Sunday brunch, lots of stations throughout the restaurant. Food had mediocre flavor. Crab legs were small and dry. All of it looked pretty but lacked quality flavor.

This restaurant is located in the Hard Rock Hotel and Casino. They have several restaurants in the casino but this is the most upscale. If you are familiar with steakhouses then you know the deal-ridiculously overpriced steaks and sides. None of the steaks come with any sides so basically you get a piece of meat on a plate. The sides... More

We had dinner here before seeing a show at the Hard Rock. You should definitely make a reservation because it gets very crowded. The service was excellent! Our server, Rhonda, was friendly, knowledgable about the specials/menu and attentive. We had cocktails, shrimp cocktail and Caesar salad to start. The drinks and shrimp were great; the salad wasn't the best we've... More

This being my second stay at The Hard Rock in Hollywood, I made it a point to dine at this wonderful establishment again. The decor is very nice and the ambiance is wonderful. Sometimes steak houses can be stuffy but Council Oaks has a nice relaxed atmosphere. We of course started with drinks and this being a steak house I... More

Was invited to have dinner with a friend. Wonderful food a service. My friend had the crab claws, which were in season. Probably the biggest i have seen . Probably 8-10 ounces each. I had one of the best pieces of swordfish I've ever had. Salads were great. Wedge salad was outstanding. The service as great. Wish i could have... More
