    This was the best restaurant my wife and I have ever visited. All aspect of our meal were outstanding. The serve was second to none with multiple people visiting the table and providing serve. Our dinner consisted of a table-side prepared Caesar salad followed by a Chateaubriand which was also carved tableside. Very extensive wine list too. Will definitely go back there again next time in Orlando

    The evening began perfectly with a drink in the bar and good conversation with the bartender. When we got to our table the service there also began quite well. We were excited to have our children experience a great service level at a usually wonderful restaurant. Everything was going well through appetizers and the table side prepared Caesar salad. Once we placed our entree order we waited and then we waited some more. Finally after about 45 minutes we noticed that none of our servers had checked on us and as we tried to get their attention we noticed they wouldn’t even make eye contact with us. I finally spoke out to one of them and asked about our food and he said he would check with the kitchen. After waiting for another 15 minutes I got up and requested some management assistance. The assistant general manager came up and our food was finally hitting the table. He checked our ticket and came to the table confirming that we had waited over an hour. He apologized and mentioned that they had gotten busier than expected. He offered to buy us dessert and we declined. I was probably a little too polite given the wait. My filet was dry but the other dishes were properly prepared. I was also offered a top off on my wine as a complementary glass which I declined. My wife finally took our daughter and left because it had taken so long. As mentioned I was a little too polite for the terrible service and looking back the entire meal should have been comped. We have dined here previously when in town and had great experiences but this time was a total disaster. I’m disappointed in the overall service and how it was handled. I tipped above 20% (shouldn’t have) because I hate to blame the service staff but in hindsight I remembered that they had never checked on us or apologized for the delay at any point while we waited. Again it was a disappointment to say the least.

    The service was wonderful. The chateaubriand for 2 was prepared to our desired temperature & carved table side. It was loud with some groups having a great time during their meal, but kind of expect that on a Disney property. It didn’t detract from our experience. We would return.

    The food and service were great!! We found it a bit loud for this type of higher end restaurant. We were seated initially in a corner - very nice. Then they seated a large party (12) right next to us. It was incredibly loud (we could not hear each other), the noise just really echoes into that corner. The group was not out of control, just a large group carrying on normal conversations and the physics of our table in a corner. We asked if it was possible to move and were quickly accommodated. We could still hear the group, but not nearly as badly as before. We did notice that our old table remained empty. Not our first visit here and won't be our last. Save room for dessert - the Chocolate Peanut Butter Cake is amazing!

    The day of our reservation, I was commenting to my husband that I thought this was the best restaurant in the state of Florida! Have dined here 5 other times, and it was five star all the way! I don’t know what happened. But we will not be back. Entirely too many other options in Orlando. Service was poor, staff, not friendly, tomahawk steak, and lamb chops, undercooked. We did not even complain about the lamb chops, but the steak was taken back and warmed up . To the managers credit, when asked to see him, he did credit the steak, gave us his card and told us to contact him when we are in town again

    Wonderful service and great food. Would like one room set aside for two tops so it is more conductive for a date type setting. Some of the tables were rather loud and make the evening less than perfect.

    This is fine dining at its best. The staff is incredible and attentive, they were there when needed but never hovering. The menu is exceptional, as is the food. The pacing of the meal was perfect, we enjoy a little time between courses. We were celebrating our 40th anniversary and they made it truly memorable. I honestly don’t have anything negative about our meal and experience. If they were located nearer to us we’d be regulars! Thank you! We sincerely loved our experience!

    The food was amazing. 20 minutes into dinner a large party showed up about 50 people and it was so loud. It turned a nice elegant dinner into a bar seen. It was very unfortunate that such an elegant restaurant would allow that. And then when we spoke to the manager, he said sorry it’s out of my control. Poor management.

    Yesterday was my birthday, and “Wifey-4-Lifey” wanted to treat me to a very special night out of dining. SPECIAL IT WAS!! This was more of an experience-one that will long be remembered. Located at the Waldorf Astoria, our special VIP treatment began with the valet service and lasted throughout the entire evening. Bull & Bear’s ambience was ideal for an intimate, romantic, candlelight dinner. Our waiter, Tim, was extremely courteous and professional, full of knowledge and humor. Wifey and I are globetrotters who love and take pleasure in fine steakhouses. A new standard has been set!! Highly recommended! We’ll be back soon!

    Bull and Bear was billed as a dining experience and it absolutely was. The presentation of the food was definitely interesting and the ambience of the restaurant was upscale but very comfortable. We had all the staples (pasta explosion, fried chicken, steak) and the food was tasty but not mind blowing. When compared to the prices, we were expecting something a little more. The steak especially was over seasoned and left a salty aftertaste. The three desserts we tried were all fantastic and very unique. That is where they shined. Our serving team was ok…we were a little putt off when we asked about non alcoholic mock tails and were never told about any of the offerings. Overall good experience, a tad overpriced and overhyped.

    Our go to special occasion restaurant. Such a treat , you have a whole team of people serving you. Food is amazing this time we had the chateaubriand I think hands down best steak I have ever had. We also tried the famous lemon for dessert and this girl who is bit a giant lemon fan absolutely fell in love with that dessert. The lemon will be something I continue to order now.

    WORST DINNER EVER! Arriving in late no one nor by the restaurant nor by the hotel is able to answer to the phone to receive the communication of delay of the clients. The ambient is cold, a few light that does not allow to see what you are eating. Passing to the orders, we ordered Oysters Rockfeller, pasta explosion and Giant Shrimps and at the table arrived two Giant Shrimps. The Pasta explosion is composed by 5 small ravioli (5x5cms) with only one slice of Parmigiano. Later arrived a salad (not requested by us) and the waiter said "The Chef prepared some more dishes of salad, so he decided to send out to the clients..." Then the meat...we asked for 3 NY SIRLOIN medium cooked with asparagus. The meat appeared burned on its surface with an evident black surface and the asparagus were evidently frozen. No words for this kind of experience. Sub-zero is the consideration for this experience in one of the best hotel, the WALDORF ASTORIA.

    Another excellent experience at Bull & Bear. The food was incredibly good and having Tim and his team serving meant we had timely service and great suggestions for our meals. Tim is completely knowledgeable about all of their incredible food, drink & wine options and sincerely enjoys make your evening memorable. We always look forward to seeing him. After 30 years of extensive travel throughout the US and internationally I can say Bull & Bear has become our favorite restaurant and we would never miss a visit when we are in the area.

    Couldn’t speak more highly of the wonderful service “team” they have in place. Everyone, works so well together, but allow you privacy to enjoy the delicious meal. You don’t feel like the staff is “ hovering”. We loved the Oysters Rockefeller, Dover sole and Dry Aged New York Strip-accompanying sauces were delicious! And to top it off our strawberry ice cream dessert presentation was out of this world, and was just “Strawberry flavor on Steroids!”! Best dessert ever! Kudos to both the chef and pastry chef. Thoroughly enjoyed our meal. We will return when we are back in the Orlando area!

    We love Bull and Bear! This time we got the carving board. The tomahawk steak is always great. The fried chicken was the best I’ve ever had it was amazing. The lobster was good but not memorable in my opinion. Mashed potatos was good. Creamed spinach was amazing. Bacon Mac n cheese was great but too filling with the rest of the meal. We shared the carving board between 4 people and got an extra side and we was perfectly satisfied with the amount of food. Then we got 2 desserts. The lemon and la fraise. Both very good but the strawberry ice cream is always going to be our favorite! Overall we enjoyed everything and will always return.
