Dinner was for an anniversary and was everything you could hope for. Service was impeccable, food was even better. The bill can certainly get up there if you’re drinking, but it is by all means worth every dollar.

Tim was a great server. He took time to talk to us and educate us. He shared a new Gin with me (Monkey 47) that was fantastic! That goes above and beyond and made for an amazing experience. Plus, I get to share that with my friends now and expand the experience. He is quite an asset to BB! Will be back.

What a wonderful dining experience. Our waiter Timothy was soft spoken, recommended great dishes and was attentive. I certainly suggest having the Sea Bass. Oh do not forget a Sidecar as your drink.

Excellent! Our server was top notch and the meal was one of the best we’ve had in a very long time. We frequent steak houses several times a month but hadn’t made the drive out to Bull and Bear until we decided to go for my fiancé’s birthday and it did not disappoint. Yes it’s pricey, but it’s worth it. My fiancé is a mashed potato fiend and he said they were the best mashed potatoes he’s ever had. We also had their strawberry shortcake dessert where they make the ice cream table side and it was phenomenal. 10 out of 10 and we will back.

It’s always amazing when we come here! The service, the food, the presentation are always excellent! We had the colossal shrimp cocktail, Caesar salad for 3 table side, Napa valley Chardonnay, chateaubriand steak for two, Mac n cheese with bacon, and the always amazing fried chicken. Finished off with the cheesecake. We rolled ourselves out of there! We love going here, but can only afford it once or twice a year.

The restaurant was to loud. People were not dressed appropriately. I have no problem spending 300 on dinner. I do have a problem sitting next to people who are dressed in little better than sweats. I was there a few years back and it was amazing. The ambiance was quite the food amazing. It has gone way down. I will jot be telling everyone that it’s my favorite restaurant. . I’m so sad and disappointed.

My friend and I chose The Bull and Bear to treat ourselves to a nice meal after competing in an athletic event. We chose to eat at the bar. Justin, our bartender/waiter was fantastic. He recommended the Delmonico steak, a special not listed on the menu. It was out of this world. Cooked to perfection with unbelievable flavor. We also shared the wedge salad, mashed potatoes and seasonal wild mushroom melange. Arguably the best meal I’ve ever enjoyed. Justin even tracked me down and called me because I had forgotten my credit card when we left the restaurant. Outstanding dining experience. We will definitely be back.

I needed a place to celebrate my husband's birthday. Our favorite place was closed so I chose this one. This place is fantastic!! The Sea bass was the best fish we have ever tasted. The brioche rolls!! The Caesar salad!! Also... ask for the salt. The black salt is heaven. The crab bisque is amazing. This place is so elegant. You won't be disappointed.

Our serving team included Sheridan, Tyler, Gustavo, and Tim. Each of these gentleman did an excellent job ensuring we had everything we could need or want. The tasting from the couch was an excellent touch as well. This night out was our Christmas present to each other and is a memory we will cherish!
