My husband & I dined there last night with 3 other friends. We asked for the wine list and one of our friends ordered a bottle of wine which 4 of us shared. The price on the wine list was $50. We then ordered a second bottle. We told the server to put one bottle on our bill and one on the friend's bill. When we received our bills, we were shocked to see that we were charged $100 for each bottle of wine. When we questioned it, we were told that the price listed on the wine list was for 1/2 bottle. I reviewed the entire list and there were maybe 4 wines that listed 1/2 bottle next to it. A gentleman who was supposedly the manager came over to our table and again stated that the price was for 1/2 bottle.. We have been to fine dining restaurants all over the country and never have we seen a wine list that is all bottles and has just a few marked as 1/2 bottle. The server should have pointed out that the price was for 1/2 bottle. Although the food was very good, we felt ripped off on the wine. We have been to Council Oak on numerous occasions and have always enjoyed ourselves. We have also recommended it to others. After this experience we think twice before returning. You don't expect a fine dining restaurant to engage in this type of deceptive behavior. We have no problem paying their prices but we don't appreciate what we felt was bait and switch.
