We came for our son’s 21st birthday. He wanted to go somewhere delicious fancy and have an amazing first “legal” cocktail. All his dreams were met. The steaks , Mac and cheese with bacon , creamed corn , table side Caesar , gnocchi escargot and lamb were all mouthwatering. The cocktail
Suggestion was a “smoked “ old fashioned. Wow! It was such a memorable night. They brought us 2 comp desserts. Both were mouthwatering. I highly recommend this restaurant for something special. It will not disappoint

We live in Orlando and for years we’ve been hearing that the steaks at Bull & Bear are the best in town. So we decided to finally try it for my son’s birthday. The hotel lobby and restaurant consists of old fashioned dimly lit stately decor without the royal glam of the interior at the Waldorf Hotel in NYC. At Bull & Bear the steaks, caesar salad, and sides were good. But for over $600 for 4 people it was not the best steaks or food we have ever had in Orlando. The service was impeccable but our main server went overboard insisting I try something I didn't want to eat. Later insisting we try the creme brûlée although we had birthday cake at home. And questioning us if we’ve ever eaten at the other high-end hotel restaurants in town. It really was all a little too much. For us, it’s all about the food and overall we were disappointed. We’ve had better steaks and sides at Shulas, The Palm, Eddie V’s, Capital Grill, Hemingways, etc. But to be honest, at other times we’ve also had not as good steaks at those restaurants as well. So we’ve come to realize it really does depend on the chef whose cooking that night. Its just that for $600+ you expect the very best and when you don’t get it you feel let down.

Had an amazing time at the Bull and Bear with great staff that took care of every thing we need. The Cesar salad was the best I've ever had and enjoyed watching them make it at the table. The smoked old fashion was amazing and had a great flavor. The Wagu steak From Australia could not have been cooked better. My girlfriend had the filet minion And it was amazing as well. Over all experience was beyond expectations.

Tim is by far the best waiter you will ever get at any restaurant. He always takes care of us like we are family and he has the best recommendations. In fact, this time we didn’t even open a menu; just took his word on what he recommended for dinner.

Food was average. My son ordered the Wagyu steak medium rare and it came closer to medium well. He was hungry and did n it want to send it back but only ate half of a $90 steak!!! My husband had the Halibut and also did not find it to be worth the price but did not say anything because we were all tired and did not want to deal! My Dover Sole was good but not great. The Oysters Rockefeller were very good! Our waiter was a bit obsequious for our liking and when asked could not tell me the wine he would recommend saying he could not tell me on the spot as he could not remember all the wines. That to me says, I need to ask someone as I don't know! No, I would not return or recommend this restaurant.

This place is amazing. Some of the best food I’ve ever had- and I’m a bit of a food snob. The corn soup was unbelievable, the wagyu carpaccio excellent, the table side caesar awesome, both of our steaks were perfection, even the Bull and Bear frittes were the best fries I’ve ever had! Definitely be prepared to spend money - it was very expensive (though admittedly we did get two very expensive bottles of wine)- but to me, I’ll happily pay for exquisite food and unrivaled service. Scott, Javier, and Diego (we also had one other server but I’m ashamed to say I can’t remember his name....I’ll blame the wine) gave us an incredible evening!!! We will most definitely be back.

This is one of the most amazing dining experiences I have ever had the pleasure to receive. We have visited twice whilst on vacation and the second time we took my daughters. They had never experienced anything like it. The food is excellent and the shrive impeccable. I have dined in many Award winning restaurants worldwide and this is one of the finest

I think that the establishment is very overrated. My steaks and appetizers were ‘average’. They had interesting ways to present the appetizers- but they again were average. For the cost of the meal - the standards should have not only been meet but raised. The more you pay, the higher the standards it should be and they fallen short. I will not be returning and other establishments like the California Grill at the Disney Contemporary Resort which I went to the next day was cheaper but a much higher quality of product than Bull& Bear. Save your money - if you want to try it out - fine. The main courses where like every other steakhouse just much higher cost. It was a disappointing experience - even at a Waldorf hotel.
