Diner Reviews
  • "The service and ambiance are superb, but it's the food that wins it all. Our adult daughter says she got her best meal ever here. We brought a friend 2-3 years ago who is still talking about how good the food was. Those mashed potatoes are too good!"

  • "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."

  • "Very disapointed...would have gotten better service at a "Dennys"...seated for over an hour and only had been served our salad and bread, left the restaurant without our main course..Have dined at the Bull and Bear several times previously and had outstanding food and service...this was totally unacceptable for a Waldorf experience."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Really enjoyed my dining experience here. Everything was fabulous the food, ambiance, the presentation of the food, everything. The only small problem I had was we waited a long time for our meal, but they did keep us updated."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "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!"

  • "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."

  • "The Bull and Bear is our favorite restaurant in the Disney World area. Great service, nice wine list and great food. We have tried the Tomahawk, filet and short ribs of beef on different occasions and all were good. Can't beat the Lemon for a unique dessert and the Chocolate Bar is a dream."

  • "This was our third or fourth time to go . We wish we did not go the steak was terrible we waited so long to fix it and it came back wrong again , the first few times we went to was great but last time was real bad , they promise not to charge us for the main course just drinks and appetizers so we had a first bill , then they came back and told us since it was our anniversary and the bad experience they will only charge for drinks , so we got another bill assuming they will only charge for drinks , apparently we we got our credit card statement they already charged us twice . I told my husband we need to call and complain , he said no but we will never go back again"

  • "The food was well served and the meat excellent as also the fish. The excellent Bordeux was unfotunately served a bit too cold. The service was very good, efficient and prompt. The fish was served at the table as it should in a restaurant of reputable cusine and the ambience and noise levels were excellent. For a restaurant of this caliber a good sommelier would be an additional advantage."

Desserts are also outstanding. Service matches the food quality. At night you can also see the fireworks from Disneys Magic Kingdom through the large windows"

  • "We came for our anniversary dinner. Incredible steakhouse, incredible food and service. The Tomahawk Ribeye for two is the best ribeye steak I've ever had; pricey but worth it. The creamed corn was incredible as well. Service was top notch, atmosphere was great. Will be coming back "

  • "The food was absolutely divine. Our only complaint was our waiter was not the greatest. He was not very friendly or attentive. He did have a big party of about 24 people to attend to, so most of his time was allotted to them. He did say he had two others helping him, but we did not see the others. Unless one was the gentleman who refilled our water. The bread was not left on the table, even if this is what this restaurant does, no one came to offer more. We had to ask. The restaurant was beautiful and everyone besides our waiter was extremely pleasant. "

  • "After having a fantastic dinner here several months ago we decided to go back to celebrate a special occasion. Unfortunately, the waiter we had last time, who was one of the most knowledgeable people we have ever had about wines is no longer there. This time we had a waiter who was unfamiliar with most of the wines we asked about and when we asked for the sommelier, he just told us that they "were all familiar with wine." This produced a mediocre, but rather expensive, bottle of wine for dinner. While the chateaubriand was excellent, the waiter forgot the sauce for the asparagus but he comped the dessert for us. Still a beautiful venue for dining, but the impression of the first experience we had there was not to be repeated."

  • "The Bull and Bear at the Waldorf=Astoria Orlando continues to be one of the highest priced restaurants in the Orlando area and the service is touch and go, depending on the night, so it seems. This is our fourth time dining at the restaurant and while most of the food has been good, the service this particular night was sub-standard and therefore negatively impacted our overall experience. With three attendants to the table, there is no excuse of tardy water service, bread service, ordering and worst of all, allowing dirty plates for all four attendees to sit an extended period of time. There are certainly better restaurants in Orlando and the Disney World area and for what you pay at this restaurant the experience should be much better."

  • "We've been to Bull and Bear since they opened and visited them everytime we're in Orlando. They've never disappointed and always exceeded expectations. Impecable attention to detail in their service, ambience, and food preparation and quality. The wine list is quite extensive yet unpretentious, they have an excellent selection to satisfy any taste and budget, the staff is adept at helping you select the perfect wine to match your taste. We've tasted steaks around the nation but none can compare to those at Bull and Bear, they know how to prepare it and are able to do it consistently. When you go save room for the "Lemon" dessert it is delectable but doesn't leave you stuffed. "
