Started an evening celebrating with friends before a show. Our waiter, Drew, was the only good thing about the restaurant. Started with a large, cold, seafood appetizer. The oysters were flavorless, the clams had small pieces of shells in it, crab legs were sweet and lobster was adequate. The presentation was not even particularly appealing. Next, the entree' was a... More

Have been here several times over the years and NEVER has there been an issue with the food, service, reservations, etc. ALWAYS a happy and professional crew serving up fine dining courses and specials. Of course, it's pricey, but with all you get with experienced wait staff and obviously, a top level chef and staff, it's to be expected. From... More

This is pricey, yet the food is excellent. It also has a brunch on Sundays that surpasses all others. A wide variety of choices available. Highly recommended for all to visit.

Council Oak has all the elements for fine dining. Luxurious atmosphere. Delicious menu. Fantastic service. Very relaxing. Romantic. It was so enjoyable we returned a second night.

I was disappointed by every aspect of our experience. Our reservations were for 9:30 PM we arrived about half an hour early and were told that we would be seated at 9:30 as planned. We waited in the bar and had drinks and appetizers. The mushroom caps were good but the onions rings were very greasy, so much so that... More

I went there for my 30th birthday and it absolutely sucked. Our server was horrible. Completely inept, untrained and extremely inattentive. The food was disgusting. I ordered the pasta bolognese. It looked like dried egg noodles with Taco Bell meat dumped on it. You would be better off eating at the food court in the casino. Huge disappointment and so... More

My husband and I ate there last night. Apps were good. I had steak done med. rare. Done correctly but steak had no taste and was dry. My husband had fish. He said it was way over cooked. Our server was very nice and polite. But the food was expensive and a disappointment.
