 (Atlantic City)·Dined on August 27, 2017

While my Spouse and I enjoyed the location, as well as the ambience (romantic setting), the food leaves a lot to be desired. The salmon was underdone and the fried chicken, except for the breading (skin portion), it was not flavorful at all. I am comparing this location with the other locations we visited during our Disney vacation; the Four Seasons and Shula's. It does not compare with either of the mentioned restaurants.
The only pleasure was, the Captain, Ashley, who was amazing with her attention. My Spouse and I expected much better service of the Waldorf Astoria. For instance, one example; the wine glasses took an extreme amount of time to refill. It may be a little thing, but those little things are the things that count.
Not the great experience we look forward to when dinning.

Drinks were slow. I should've sent the chateaubriand back it was over for a medium- the guys face when he carved told me the same. They did do a half lamb portion for my 6 year old tho. Nice place, good service. Bit underwhelmed by a dry and over cooked steak.

Amazing meal and service! We went for my birthday and there was a birthday card waiting for me at the table as well as my dessert on the house. The best part to me was how they treated my four and a half year old daughter... sometimes these places don't like kids but they treated her the same as my husband and I and that makes this mommy happy! My husband and I had the tomahawk for two...OMG is all I can say! Highly recommend for a special occasion.

Still a very fine dining room with knowledgeable and attentive service. Food quality was however disappointing for the hefty price tag. Seem to have emphasized form over function and forgotten that food quality and flavor trumps presentation

SPECTACULAR! From the pre-arranged birthday reservation to being walked out with our left overs, the entire experience was first class. The food was so fresh and so tasteful. What really knocked it out the park was the service. Everyone was so happy, and sincere. I have never been so glad to pay a tip.

We ate the fois grais, lobster bisque, lamb, beef short rib and creme brule. Everything was perfectly done. when i mean perfectly done i mean perfectly done. There was not a single negative comment i can make. At around $100 per plate (with a glass of wine) it simply can't be beat. Will be visiting again...this time probably for the lobster service :o0!

We ordered a Caesar prepared table side and the Chateaubriand for two of which were both exceptional. The wine list was very impressive and the entire meal from start to finish could not have been better. The staff was all very friendly and made the entire night exceptional. Everyone should try this restaurant at least once, as few restaurants can ever reach this level of staff, ambiance, service, and quality of the meal.

The service was on point. The food was spectacular. The cocktails were great. And the French Fries that were coated in some kind of beef fat then salted were a work of art. Without a doubt one of the best steakhouses around.

The corn soup was horrible didn't even take two bites of it. But still paid for it. The heirloom tomato salad was OK probably wouldnt eat it again because the "foam" was awful the cheese that was provided was ok the tomatoes were awesome and the spinach on top could have used more sauce. The main course steaks were to die for! The sides were fabulous bacon mac and cheese French fries and cream corn. For the dessert we had what was called the lemon, it was ok definitely don't eat it with the rinds, looking back probably should of got a different desert but hey, we tried something new so that's ok

The service was great and attention to detail was fantastic. I feel that it is a bit overpriced, however. We arrived with multiple bottles of wine and our table host informed me that the corkage fee was $50 per bottle. I was shocked by that as most other comparable restaurants are consistently around $25-30. Luckily, after some pleading with the host, he decreased the cost to $25 per bottle. Entree's are priced correctly, but appetizers/soups/salads are way above what it should be. I have been here multiple times and have thoroughly enjoyed each visit, but every time I leave I shake my head on the total cost of the bill. I will be back for the delectable food and top flight service.

This is hands down, far and away my favorite restaurant in Orlando. Yes, the menu is slightly traditional but it is done so well and the service is beyond compare. We just celebrated my birthday there and Justin at the bar and the entire team made it a truly EPIC experience. I can honestly say this is the one establishment that has never let us down in any way! We simply do not stay in Orlando without a visit to Bull & Bear--it is a requirement for us now. If you enjoy wonderful food, genuinely craft(ed) cocktails and delightful people/service, you cannot bypass it!

 (Orlando)·Dined on July 12, 2017

We were in Kissimee looking for a great upscale restaurant and checked out reviews online. After asking around we chose Bull & Bear Steakhouse. We got reservations for 8:00 and as soon as we got there we were treated like royalty. From the seating throughout the night the service was impeccable. Appetizers, Drinks (they helped us choose a great bottle of wine) and the $110 steak shared between my wife and I was incredible. This is one of the best places we have ever been too and we like to travel quite often. If you are looking for a great steakhouse in the Orlando area do not miss Bull & Bear Steakhouse. The ONLY issue my wife had was the IPAD Menu she prefers a real menu. Thank you Bull & Bear!

Wife and I went for a date while in Orlando. I've been a few times before. Both our steaks came out way over cooked. They brought out two new steaks, both over cooked again. Service was amazing. Managers were great, waiter was noticeably frustrated but was very nice. But, the steaks were very bad. I'll go again, but this was a bust.

This was absolutely an amazing dining experience. From top to bottom every detail was fantastic and we wish we had found this place sooner. The restaurant is quiet and good for a date night, but would also work for groups. The food and menu is spectacular, everything we ate was perfectly prepared. We had the steak for two, plus sides of mac n cheese and corn. The steak sauce options all paired wonderfully with the meat. All of our servers were very knowledgeable about the food, menu and preparations. All of the drinks are specially made in-house and they have a very robust wine list to choose from. This is a local gem and we are sure to return again soon! Thank you to the entire team there that made this a wonderful dining experience.
