I had the Waldorf Special drink to start and it was so tasty. Then we had the Ceaser salad prepared tableside hands down it was the best Ceaser we have ever eaten. I forgot, we also had the Lobster Bisque and that was probably the least impressive of everything but wasn't horrible. Main course was perfect, I had filet and the roasted garlic they serve with it really works well with the steak. My husband ordered the short rib and the taste was great and it was a huge portion perfect for a man size appetite. The service was perfect we couldn't have asked for a better night.

The food was outstanding! And so was the service. Would recommend this restaurant to steak and wine lovers.

Top 3 restaruant dinners
The Bull and the Bear was absolutely outstanding. We celebrated our 22 anniversary here.
Everything from the valet, the food, (chateaubriand and Caesar salad both served tableside), service, and views were top notch.
It was one of the top 3 dinners I have ever had!
7/5/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were celebrating our 28th wedding anniversary and the staff and food was "Outstanding". We enjoyed the entire time we spent at your establishment.

Five star experience!
We really enjoyed dinner at the Bull & Bear Steakhouse. The Chateubriand was delicious and the roasted garlic on the side added terrific flavor options. The Cesar salad prepared table side was great. The creme brûlée with dark chocolate was VERY good-- and they flambéed it table side! Because of all of the table side options, our dinner was interactive, and our teenager enjoyed her dining experience too. We had a team of three servers who were extremely attentive. Dino was our main waiter and he was informative about all the food and wine options available, providing accurate descriptions of the flavors and portions. The restaurant had a nice ambiance -- a blend of classic and cosmopolitan. The chairs were comfortable.

40 dinners ALL exceptional
Since the B&B opened I have had dinner there more than 40 times...the staff is exceptional, the food superb, the ambiance elegant and the management engaged and accommodating. This is the best steak in Orlando and perhaps anywhere. If you have someone willing to share the Tomahawk it is delicious. This visit I did the tasting menu and every course was exceptional. I have also booked their private dining room for business dinners, family birthdays and other events. This is one of the nicest private dining rooms in Florida.

Great Luxury Dining Experience
This is the third time we have dined at the Bull and Bear, and we always enjoy the experience! (We hope to visit again soon.)

I recently took my wife out on a date to the Bull & Bear and was impressed by everything. The service and food both exceeded my expectations.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
We have been to the Bull & Bear on several occasions. We like to stay at the Hilton or the adjacent Waldorf, where the Bull & Bear is located. The menu is challenging and in inventive. Foie Gras was great, as was the table-side Caesar Salad. Our Entrée' was the tomahawk Steak, a bone-in Rib eye with a 20" bone, served for two.
Try to be at table #20 at about 9:00 PM where you will have a perfect view of Disney's Epcot Fireworks!
7/19/2013 12:00:00 AM
We enjoyed the relaxed but efficient service and the "team" style.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
My fiance and I dined at Bull and Bear in celebration of our engagement. When we arrived, they had set up a special table with sunset view and congratulated us. The service throughout our meal was spectacular--we were treated by a team of servers, each very knowledgeable and helpful, so we were never concerned with finding a server.
Yes, it is pricey and I would say the food was just shy of outstanding. Salads were tasty and generous, but nothing spectacular. I had the sirloin and my fiance the 8 oz filet. Both were juicy and tender with great flavor, though my sirloin was slightly overcharred. Mac & cheese w/ bacon was incredible, as were the cheesecake and creme brulee. Overall, a wonderful experience for a once-in-a-lifetime event.
7/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Expensive, but worth it
Two things stood out to me from Bull & Bear - the Shrimp and Grits appetizer was amazing and The Lemon for dessert was delicious and the most unique dessert I have ever seen. Would definitely go back again in the future.
7/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delmonico is top-notch
One of the top steakhouses I've been to, and I go to steakhouses several times per year. The Delmonico/Ribeye is one of the, if not the, best I've ever had. Potato frittes, creamed corn, and lobster mac n cheese, and dessert beignets were all delicious. Great atmosphere. Pricey, but I think better than the other top-tier steakhouses (Flemings, Mortons, Ruth Chris, Charleys, Shula, Berns) that are just as pricey in the Orlando/Tampa area. Five stars! Will definitely be back soon!
7/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great restuarant! Had the Chateaubriand it was cooked to perfection, sliced table side. The service was impeccable. Ask for a window seat and if you are there at 9 pm you can see the fireworks at Disney. Also, if you are coming with a larger group consider the private dining room - it's so impressive. Do expect to spend some money, you won't be disappointed. We treated ourself and stayed overnight at the Waldorf Astoria, the hotel and grounds are amazing.
7/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Enjoyed the Dining Experience
We found the ambiance of the restaurant very nice,the food very good and the service outstanding. Because of that....we look forward to coming back soon!

Special Occasion & Craving Steak?
Bull & Bear is your place! While unfamiliar with the plethora of Orlando fete, Waldorf Astoria's Bull & Bear was convenient and relevant, as my husband desired an amazing steak! Traditional decor and white table settings attended by businessman and couples, describe the restaurant's environs, Friday 6 PM. Service was exceptional. Ric did a wonderful job preparing table-side the tasty caesar (ask for the anchovy filets) salad dressing (old school with a twist) and suggesting Bull & Bear's unique desert, Limon! We were a bit chagrined when the bill arrived, for both the staggering price tag (appetizers over $22, tuna tartare/escargot) and for our over consumption... oh, but the steak was too delicious to leave behind. Perfection!
8/9/2013 12:00:00 AM
This was my first time at Bull & Bear. It was an incredible experience. The food, service, wine list, etc - all were superb. I am from Orlando, and I think that this may be the best restaurant in its category in town.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Wow! The food and service
Wow! The food and service was excellent .....view was fantastic!
Caesar salad is not to be missed. The "pasta explosion" was unbelievable.... So good.
Short ribs were so moist, tender and full of flavor. Steak was cooked perfectly.
The lemon and creme brûlée were delicious...can't wait to return!
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great last night of our Disney stay. Steaks were great. Best creamed corn I have ever had, plus great mashed potatoes. Thanks for a great evening.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
We treated ourselves to the tasting menu for our wedding anniversary. the food was great and thoroughly explained as the meal progressed. Appropriate wine selelctions we suggested as well. Meal moved at an appropriate pace. A very nice evening.
8/17/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great service, unbelievable food. I totally recommend the Chefs tasting menu. Terrific!!
8/20/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great experience as usual
Had a great 12th wedding anniversary dinner. Bull and Bear has never failed to deliver an awesome experience.
8/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Everything It Was Cracked Up to Be
I've done 'em all--Morton's, Flemings, The Palm, Ruth's Chris, DelFrisco's, Angus Barn in Raleigh, Dickie Brennan's and Crescent City Steaks in New Orleans, Gene and Georgetti in Chicago and on and on--and Bull & Bear is right up with the best of 'em. Expensive, yes. Lavish, yes. But truly extraordinary. The tomahawk chop is remarkable and served with a dripping "lard candle" that has to be experienced. The tableside Ceaser's Salad was overpriced at $24, but the lobster mac and cheese was well worth the same tariff. Make no mistake, there's no cheap way out of there. $15 for a light-pour Ketel One on ice? Please! Come on-pour like it's a chophouse! Ironically, the wine list is fair. The staff is warm, cogenial, and delighted to serve.

No bull it was excellant
My wife and I dined for our wedding anniversary. The service was impeccable. The staff treated you liked an honored guest. No request was refused and the food was the best we had every had in an upscale steak house. The waiter explained all of the restaurant's special dishes and made excellent suggestions. The atmosphere was very romantic and the views were spectacular. We will be going back on our next special day and can't wait to try some different dishes.
8/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
We were having a family meal
We were having a family meal to celebrate Australian Fathers Day......the service, food and ambiance was impeccable! Highly recommended to all looking for an exquisite dining experience. The knowledge and service of the staff was first class, as was the food! I'll definitely be back next time we're in town.
9/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
The Bull & Bear is a fine steakhouse. I live in New York City and occasionally frequent steak joints in New York. The Bull & Bear certainly measures up to the best. I enjoyed the meal with my two grown sons and they split the tomahawk steak. They ordered it "as rare as you can make it" and that's precisely how it arrived. Both said it was amazing. I had the filet (medium-rare) and it was excellent. The only issue that I had that evening was the service. We were never offered bread, we had to request salt, and it took a very long time for us to get a beer with the meal. Outside of that the service was professional and well done. If I find myself back in Orlando wanting a steak, this would be my first choice

Special evening just shy of perfect
Beautiful, romantic, excellent service made for a very special evening to celebrate our 20th anniversary. The food was excellent specifically the table-side Caesar Salad (Cameron was great!), the shrimp and grits and the crème brulee with chocolate hidden at the bottom! This is first rate food and service and you pay for it. The prices are steep and everything is a la carte. Just of shy of perfect was due to Veal Oscar coming out as a chop and not pounded thin like usual. This should have been noted on the menu. No worries - our waiter apologized and immediately got us something different. Bar afterwards was cozy and warm but our good time was interrupted by children. So be aware-you are in a resort paying top dollar but kids are around.

First Class Dining
If you are looking for outstanding food, service and a romantic ambience. The Bull and Bear Steakhouse is what you are looking for in a world class setting. A must if you are visiting Walt Disney World/Orlando area.
9/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great Caesar salad made from scratch at your table, all the steaks are cooked to perfection. Great service. For dessert skip the soufflé and get something else. Only thing that isn't exceptional.
9/17/2013 5:00:00 PM
It's in the Waldorf - of course it was perfect! No description needed - just go!

We had the degustation and the food was outstanding. The service started very well but tapered off from the middle to the end. The wait staff was not knowledgeable about the courses being served and the wait between courses was very extended, without any explanation.

Still The Best Restaraunt Ever!
My Wife and I visited Bull and Bear for the 2nd time to celebrate our 10 year wedding anniversary. EVERYTHING was as amazing as the first time. The food, personal service, pace....all of it. If you're looking for an EXTREMELY nice restaraunt and are willing to spend a lot of money then this is your restaraunt in Orlando.
10/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
My fiancée and I spent the weekend in Orlando and absolutely LOVED Bull & Bear. We had the tableside Caesar salad, NY Sirloin, and ended with The Lemon and beignets for dessert. Everything was phenomenal and we both agreed it was the best steak and overall meal we had ever had. They also mix a stout drink if that tickles your fancy. We will absolutely be back!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
We are regular lovers of great restaurants here in Orlando but had not heard of the B&B until IJP commented on twitter. Being a fan of Ian we had to check it out and it was fantastic. Ambiance was great, food was divine and the service truly outstanding . We will be back! If you are looking for a special evening out and are nit afraid of pushing the boat out, this is for you!
10/12/2013 12:00:00 AM
I have dined at the Bull and Bear and several occasions for business. This was for our anniversary and it was lovely. The staff was wonderful, the food was incrediable and you must try The Lemon.

Bull and Bear
This was our 4th trip to the Bull and Bear. As expected, the food was fabulous, however the service was not what we had in our prior visits. Very few visits from our wait staff.
10/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Let me start off by saying that my family owns a fairly nice sized cattle ranch in Texas and has been in the cattle raising business since the late 1800's. So when I say that the Tomahawk Steak was the BEST my wife and I have ever had....I truly mean it! We've ate some of the best steakhouses around the country and I around the world as well. We live in Dallas, TX area so we are surrounded by great places to eat steak. But this by far was the BEST steak EVER! The service that went along with dinner was top notch as well. It made a special evening for my wife and I even that much more special. Thank you very much and we look forward to returning!
11/2/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here for dinner for my daughter's sweet 16. The staff at the restaurant made her feel special. The food was very good
11/8/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great Food and Wine
This is a must try restaurant. The food (steaks and seafood) were very very good. While the wine list could be a bit more extensive, they had several good bottles to choose from.
11/11/2013 4:00:00 PM
The food, service and ambiance was extraordinary
in every respect. I will never come to Orlando
or Nrw York again without eating at Bull and Bear!

Downton Abbey revisited
Felt as if we were being pampered by the Downton Abbey staff. The food was excellent and the THREE waiters were all three very
professional, courteous and most knowledgeable about the selections.
11/20/2013 4:00:00 PM
We had a wonderful meal at the Bull and Bear. Every dish was very good to excellent. Nice room and great service. Other than "expense account" prices this place is a no brainer.
11/21/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best Ever !!!
We went to the hotel restaurant as the first stop for the week -- expecting a very good meal and nothing more. All 4 of us agree that this was the best food & service we have received in our lifetime. During the week we spoke only about this restaurant -- yes this one was better than Emeril's (surprised?).
11/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Wonder special occasion dinner!
We drove an hour to come to Bull & Bear- well worth it! We've been here several times and the food/service/ambience is terrific. The Tomahawk steak is fabulous- we get it everytime. We asked our server to bring out his favorites and we raved about the Pasta Explosion and believe it or not- creamed corn! Musn't forget the shrimp and grits! The wine list is very well thought out & balanced. This is a restaurant where you should take your time, enjoy the beautiful view (you can see fireworks in the distance from Disney around 9:30), and definitely trust in your server! The service is top-notch and the room is so gorgeous & comfortable. The highlight of the entire meal might have been dessert. Remember The Lemon- that's all I'll say!
