We have now eaten at the absolute best steak restaurant in Central Florida. There are many great steak restaurants in the Orlando area, Ruth's Chris, Morton's, Capital Grill, to name a few. But Bull I had the Wedge Salad. We finished with a Strawberry dessert with homemade ice cream. Every bite of every course was amazing. And Tim, our waiter, and his associates did a perfect job. Tim made great recommendations on the sides and sauces for the beef, and the dessert. Bottom line, I don't think you will find a better meal anywhere.

Dined here recently upon arrival at the Waldorf Astoria for a family Disney trip. Felt very welcome and special. We were celebrating our daughter's 4th Birthday and they made her feel special on her special day. Service was excellent. Food was delicious. Be prepared to spend, but it'll be all worth it. Special thanks to Alan, the Sommelier, who was a great part of the team and took great care of us. We'll be back for sure!

Our experience at Bull and Bear was exceptional from the start. Patrick’s suggestions were well received and everything he recommended was nothing short of amazing. We started with the past explosion and the Caesar salad. Both were out of this world. Then we shared the wet aged Wagu strip steak that was just melt on your mouth delicious. We also had the dry aged delmonico with the fat candle drizzle and flight of sauces. The sauces were delicious but the steaks speak for themselves so I recommend foregoing the sauces. We also had the most amazing French fries with alioli, creamed corn and bacon Mac and cheese. The bacon Mac and cheese was too rich in my opinion. For dessert the chocolate bar was just the perfect blend of chocolate without being overpowering or overly rich. Everything including the wine was absolutely outstanding and the steaks may very well be the best I’ve ever had my life. I highly recommend and will definitely be returning the next time I’m in the Orlando area.

Exceptional service provided by Alan, Philip, Diana, & Faris. Great atmosphere overlooking the Disney fireworks. Had the salmon & really enjoyed that. The lobster salad was the only disappointment. Plenty of lobster but greens were salty & wet. Other than that had a wonderful meal!

Bull and Bear is the preeminent restaurant in Orlando. We’ve been patrons for a few years now and have gone through the menu more than once. Although it is a steakhouse, upscale at that, their go to dish is the 48 hr sous-vide fried chicken. It is not your regular chicken, it is carved table side and it is perfect—you will be awed when it melts in your mouth.

We usually have the Dover Sole—which is amazing—but tonight, I had the Nova Scotia lobster with the pata negra stuffing. Out of this world! Trust me, it’s worth the trip.

If you go, make sure to leave room for dessert. Their lemon shelled iced cream and the strawberry ice cream (made table side) are two of the most memorable desserts you will ever have.

True gem unequalled in Central Florida.

Good food. Service was slow and disjointed. Over 20 minutes for cocktails. Salads came before the wine we ordered. The supposed Sommelier knew nothing and recommend a cheap CA Red with no reason. Whole meal was over 3 hours and our table was never cleared from previous course.

Bull you receive personalized and friendly interaction with everyone who touches the table, especially the captain. The food is out of this world. The chefs really do a great job creating dishes that are flavorful and complex. In addition, the craft drinks are fantastic and you can tell that the mixologists really love their craft.

We were greeted by a very personable Hostess and seated promptly according to our reservation. The hostess clearly enjoyed her job! She was engaging and cheerful.

Immediately we were greeted by the dining room manager and introduced to the service staff. The service was excellent and the service staff were observant that my group was conducting business and made every effort to be unobtrusive, which I appreciated. They wait staff were all well dressed, well groomed, and were knowledgeable and professional. This restaurant understands fine dining and executed flawlessly.

The food was really nice! Prepared as order and presented very well. I had a vary nice Lobster Bisque also got with splitting a wedge salad to start. The bisque was great and the wedge was a creative twist on the old favorite. Very nice presentation with a great Russian dressing. My maim course was a Wagu Strip and it was prepared perfectly. It was very good! I had their version of au gratin potatoes. It was Avery cool presentation and the potatoes were really good. Paired well with the steak! I also had a mushroom medley. All of the food was perfect and delivered on time together for the whole table.

My friends had Filets and or other cuts of steaks. All were perfect and everyone really enjoyed their food.

This place will be great for a business diner, a dining destination experience, a great date night, or a romantic evening. The staff is on point!!

It is not an inexpensive place to eat but it is well worth the price tag if you want a truly first class dining experience!!

Hope this helps you decide!

We have been to Bull and Bear several times with great experiences during previous visits. This one was not just the worst experience at Bull and Bear but one of the worst in general. The evening started out okay, the attention from various people started off strong but dwindled fast. Our servers did not seem to communicate well so we sat multiple times with no drinks, waiting very extensive time for the main course and dessert, and for the check. We were there for almost 3 hours and many times sat there, waiting. The server also came back and removed my wife's drink without asking if she wanted another and we had not even been served dinner. Typically the meals for the entire table come out at the same time. Everyone around us seemed to get that level of service. My meal came out first and about 3 minutes later, my wife's meal came out. We continued to wait for more drinks and to order dessert. Once we were done with dessert, we waited for about 20 min and finally had to ask another server to bring our check. When we were walking out, our main server was sitting at the front of the restaurant chatting with the hostess.

This was just not the experience that we expected from this restaurant. Bull and Bear is typically the pillar of service, however, this evening they failed. It was such a special place, one that we typically would plan an evening around on our many trips to Orlando and the Waldorf. Unfortunately, I would prefer going to another fine dining option who seems to care about their customers.
