    The Tomahawk steak had great flavor but was a little tough (it is not a filet mignon so it is typically not as tender but it still could have been better) and for $130 ($65 per person and it is a 2 person prices entree) it should be better. It was good but not worth $130. The filet mignons at our table were melt - in - your - mouth tender but not very flavorful. Apps were good. Overall the food was good but I have been to at least 3 or 4 steakhouses that I would rate higher and are priced lower. Excellent service and the Lemon desert is unusually fantastic and I am not a big lemon desert fan - you must try it even if you are not into lemon deserts! Be prepared to pay for the high-end service.

    We had a group of six celebration birthdays. Could not had better meals or service. Everyone ordered something different and no one was unhappy. Our server Tim was very knowledgable about wines and his team kept everyones water classes filled. Must try specialty dessets (l usually do not eat any sweets but cant pass them up here). Worth the price

    We had the chateau briande for two as well as the Caesar salad for two. Both were excellent. The foyot sauce was fabulous. We had no room for desert. They had a great wine list. My only complaint was the markup on the wine. If you chose a really nice wine you'd spend easily as much as your $150 dinner per person. We chose one of the least expensive, about $65 a bottle and dinner and tip came to over $300 for the two of us. Great on you're on an expense account. Not so great when ,like us, you're retirees. Anyway, a memorable dinner.

    We travel to the Waldorf few times per year and we are used to outstanding service. Our seating was not very prompt and minimal attentiveness from host staff. Lounge area person was friendly. At our table the assistants to the waiter were not around very much and the woman who was part of the crew was very unsure of things. The main waiter was aloof and seemed other tables were more important. The food was outstanding and we enjoyed some nice champagne. Unfortunately, staff rarely poured it, and I was compelled to pour her champagne. Only at that point did the waiter come over. We had better service at peacock alley lobby bar.

    We eat out a lot and have been to some of the best restaurants in the US and Bull and Bear ranks right there with what many would consider the best and was honestly one of the best meals and experiences we have ever had at a restaurant. From reservations, to service, to ambience, to food quality….all top notch. Great Birthday celebration and we will return more frequently. Yes its pricey, but no more than one would expect for the quality and the quantity of food was plentiful

We had the Tomahawk as our entree and that was an experience in itself. We love the Bull & Bear and hope to get back to dine with them as soon as possible.

    We have been going to Bull&Bear Steakhouse since it opened, and have always been impressed with the impeccable service and good food. This last visit was quite a disappointment as far as service is concerned. I would like to contribute that to the fact that it was during the July 4 weekend, however a restaurant of that rank should never fall short on the service. We had a reservation, and were seated after a short wait. The server never introduced the menu to us, nor were we informed of the chef's specials for the day. We did not receive the usual welcome complements from the chef, were never offered bread, have tonal for it. The waiter gave us the IPads with the menus and we were pretty much on our own making the selection.

    Bull and Bear is a great example of hospitality, flawless service and perfectly prepared Beef selections. Creative appetizers and vegetable choices offer something for all guests. Dessert especially the frozen lemon should be mandatory! You truly feel like a VIP from the moment you arrive. Bull and Bear is truly a dining experience, standing ovation for the efforts of the staff and the Waldorf for a great restaurant tradition.

    Kim and I took 4 friends for dinner. We had been a few weeks ago and were so impressed by the food, service, staff and fancy GM Manny that we decided to return with more friends. Their menu is on an ipad. click on the dish and a picture pops up along with suggested wine pairings. The wine list is also on the ipad. We love it. As for the food. The escargot w gnocchi is a must have. Caesar salad table side anyone? Wow. The fried chicken is like no other. The dover sole is incredible. Steaks are great of course. May as well have dessert too. We are going back in a few weeks.

    This was our 3rd visit to the B&B and yet again it was first class! The food is out of this world and the service is impeccable . We only discovered this fantastic place thanks to "twitter" and the English golfer Ian Poulter , who we follow. He said it was the best Steak House in Orlando and in our opinion he is certainly right! We will be back again for our 'last night' in October.

    Bull and the Bear continues to be our favorite Central Florida restaurant both in service and food quality. The staff goes out of their way to make sure you have an amazing experience. The Bull and the Bear menu has something for everyone. The biggest problem is deciding what to have. The Pasta Explosion is a must and their Filet is the best in Florida. Excellent salads, sides and dessert as well. I recommend the Smoked Bacon Mac n Cheese. Top all of this off with an incredible wine list guarantees a great evening. All the best to the Bull and the Bear and their staff!

    My job / travel schedule has allowed me the privilege to dine out often and at some very fine establishments. As I result, I guess you could say that I am somewhat jaded when it comes to being "wowed" by a restaurant. With that said, let me say that everything at the Bull & Bear was exceptional. The service was impeccable and the food was divine. Hands down, one of the best restaurants I've visited in the last five years. Outstanding.

    Bull & Bear is worth the price! We dined in early June & haven't stopped thinking about it since. We live in Palm Beach & often make the drive to Orlando for a quick getaway. We decided to treat ourselves this time around & it was well worth it. We had drinks in the lounge first, which were excellently crafted. The gnocchi was delicious & the Del Monico & foie gras were cooked to perfection. My husband is a Chef & both my friend & I are in Food & Beverage Mgmt...we all agreed this was one of the best meals we've ever had. The only downside was service, which was touch & go. We seemed to have three to four different staff members at our table throughout the night, never knowing whom was supposed to be taking care of us.
