Delivering classic sophistication in both cuisine and guest experience, Council Oak Steaks & Seafood is located inside Seminole Hard Rock Hotel & Casino in Hollywood. The award-winning restaurant is a must-try for visitors and a hotspot among locals for dinner and Sunday brunch.
Upon entering, guests can peer into the Butcher Shop through an expanded glass-walled partition. Home to the restaurant’s prime cuts, the Butcher Shop is where each steak is personally selected, cut and branded for diners. This expertly maintained, climate-controlled environment features dry-age coolers with pink Himalayan salt brick walls where premium cuts are aged between 21 - 28 days to ensure extra tender and flavorful steaks.
Council Oak’s sophisticated bar and lounge features a unique high-end spirits program – the One Ounce Club, a curated menu of rare liquors available for order in one-ounce pours. Recently expanded, the One Ounce Club has new complements to its premium selections including exclusive pours from a rare bottle of limited edition Pappy Van Winkle 25, and an ultra-luxe tableside cocktail experience featuring two of the restaurant’s premium spirits – Remy Martin Louis XIII and Macallan Rare Cask.
The dinner menu at Council Oak offers traditional steakhouse favorites and attention-catching standouts. Thoughtfully crafted appetizers, salads, dry-aged cuts and wagyu beef, specialty selections and sides are featured with a lighter take on classic staples and new menu items. Whether experiencing a refreshing twist on a must-have favorite, or experimenting with an enticing addition, Council Oak’s unique culinary offerings are perfectly imagined for South Florida. A melt-in-your-mouth wagyu beef tartare is made with capers, smoked pepper aioli, topped with a quail egg and served with lavash crisps. The steamed mussels in a garlic-infused tomato broth is served with grilled ciabatta bread. A vibrantly seasoned specialty, the Chilean seabass with rock shrimp tomato scampi and wild arugula brims with fresh flavors. A jumbo soft-shell crab comes complete with succotash and caper vinaigrette. For a lighter start, raw bar options include oysters, shrimp cocktails and caviar. One eye-catching starter that can’t be overlooked is the Florida Reef lionfish. In a dramatic presentation, the lionfish arrives at the table served whole. The filet is excellently prepared with melted fennel and citrus, light and flavorful.
Seasonal sides are a must. Traditional steakhouse favorites remain staples, such as garlic mashed potatoes, potatoes au gratin and creamed spinach. For a twist, meals can be accompanied by grilled corn with lime and queso blanco, and roasted cauliflower with piquillo peppers.
For a sweet finish – a slice of Bananas Foster cheesecake provides texture and balance with a delightful praline crust, a decadent interior and beautifully caramelized bananas on top.
With classic sophistication, Council Oak offers guests an exquisite fine-dining experience from arrival to the last bite.
