    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.

    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 is a rare chef-driven steakhouse where everything from appetizers to salads to sides are innovative and expertly cooked. The steaks are well-aged and perfectly cooked. 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

    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.

    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 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.

    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.

    On our second visit to "The Bull", our server Tim took the dining experience over the top. Our party of four were celebrating birthdays and wanted to bring our own sentamental wine. No problem for the pros here, who received and decanted wine well ahead of dinner reservation to ensure best possible experience. From the corn soup all the way past the steak and into dessert, our journey that evening was over the top. We will definitely be back!

    Phenomenal Restaurant! We had high expectations coming in as we previewed the menu online. Bottom line...The best steaks (the Delmonico) I've ever had. Our waiter (Tim) was the most professional, kind, and knowledgable of any we've ever had before. He helped us make the best choices and steered us away from a few things. He corked the wine we brought but made excellent recommendations for us based on our order. We enjoyed the corn soup, lobster bisque, colossal shrimp, and tuna plate. The Chateubriand, Filet and the Delmonico were booked to perfection. Desert and Port were great too. We will be back with friends! This was a memorable meal for us!

    Met all of my expectations. The food,staff and service were all perfect. When you go you must have The Lemon for desert. Easily one of the best things I've ever had. I read an article about the Waldorf Astoria when I was a child and have always wanted to go. If I had a bucket list this would have been on it. It's not N.Y. but it truly was amazing. Obviously it's pricy but worth it.

    BB is an extremely good restaurant. This is the first time my family went there. As an Asian customer, I find the food slightly on the salty side. It can be less salty for Asian likings, otherwise, the steak, dessert (must try the lemon dessert!!!!) and service were excellent. One of the best I have seen and I travelled around the world a lot!!!

    This restaurant was outstanding all around; the service was beyond compare and the table side salad and carving was sensational. I highly recommend this steak house. Beast steak I've had in Orlando, better then Morton's, Capitol Grille, Flemings, Ruths Chris or any of the others my wife and I have been to. Best part was it was not all that busy, and this was during Easter week at a hotel on Disney property. Remarkable!
