The service was excellent! They asked about allergies and dietary restrictions and made suggestions based on that. I enjoyed everything that they brought out. They made suggestions for items on and off the menu. I highly recommend the ultimate fried chicken it’s unlike anything you’ve ever experienced. I highly recommend getting the vanilla ice cream with the PX Sherry. It was literally perfect. I might be bragging a little but honestly they waited on me hand and foot the entire dinner. It’s truly an experience. 10/10 highly recommend it to anyone in or visiting Orlando.

For a special celebration, this is the place to go. I could eat boatloads of the beef carpaccio alone. The lemon dessert was unbelievable. Try it at least once - you will keep coming back.

One of the few meals I can remember being disappointed that I was getting full because I wanted more stomach room to keep eating more of the delicious food that we had ordered. I had the steak frites (6oz. Fillet accompanied by the BEST French fries we have ever had! My wife wanted the Veal Oscar but it was sold out 😕. Which happened to possibly be a blessing in disguise because she ordered the Salmon instead which had a rich and so delicious verblanc sauce. We wanted to drink the remainder but behaved and instead ordered desert to go. White chocolate cheesecake with raspberry sauce, fresh fruit and raspberry marshmallows! Service all around was top notch. Made my wife feel like royalty. Expensive? Yes. But everything was done to the best possible way.

Bull and Bear was excellent as usual. The service was attentive and the food amazing. They go out of their way to make sure you enjoy the experience. If you are looking to get in and out quickly this isn’t the place. The atmosphere is conducive to fine dining and they take their time to get it right. It’s a splurge for sure, but one I love for special occasions.

Food was amazing as usual. We finally tried the pork chop and it was so worth the wait. So glad they were able to get it in. It’s now our favorite entree followed by the fried chicken. I love the Sea Bass but my husband is not a fish fan of any kind.

We enjoyed the oyster Rockefeller along with deviled eggs and shared the tomato arugula salad with the burrata.

While we had not planned for dessert we decided to indulge and shared the strawberry shortcake. It was a site to behold. The table side preparation of the strawberry ice cream with liquid nitrogen had all eyes on our table to see what we ordered. It was delicious along with the dehydrated marshmallows that tasted great.

This was an unfortunate experience. My wife and I had been looking forward to trying B however, we were sat next to a large/loud/offensive party which ruined our experience, causing us to leave early. This didn't go unnoticed by the staff as a couple members apologized about the loud party. The next day, the Waldorf checked in on our stay and I mentioned the experience. The Waldorf apologized and said someone from B&B would get in contact with me. Four days later, I heard from the manager. The Manger was kind/patient/apologetic and well aware of the disruptive atmosphere as other patrons had also complained.

Fantastic service... amazing food... for the first time ever, I have to sadly complain that there were several large groups of loud, intoxicated and boorish individuals whose behavior failed to uphold the decorum of such an establishment... and prior to our main courses being served, we elected to leave.

But the staff was over the top perfect as usual, and the food was fantastic.

Some people just don’t know how to go out in public- it’s a high end steakhouse in the lobby of the Waldorf Astoria Hotel... not a Chili’s at never ending happy hour. Act accordingly gents (and I use the term very loosely)!

We got there abd found out the reservation was for the following day. The host somehow squeezed us in anyway. The pasta explosion was phenomenal as the reviews stated. We split the Tomahawk steak which was also phenomenal. I didn't care for the sauces, buy it really didn't need any. The cream brulle was great as well. It's an expensive spot. After blowing $100 on a hotel breakfast, the seemed like a steel.

Another great evening at Bull and Bear celebrating my birthday. We had a great time sitting at the bar talking to our very knowledgeable bartender Mike before sitting down for dinner. At dinner, we enjoyed friendly and attentive service from Scott and Gonzalo. There was a bit of a delay getting our entree but the staff brought out a free shrimp dish while we waited. The food was amazing and we can’t wait to come back!

Scott and the Crew are just fantastic - Overwhelming accommodating and generous. Now the food, there is nothing that will disappoint, the truffled deviled eggs to the pasta explosion and table side Caesar Salad to the Iberico pork chop and Delmonico steak - each was spectacular. We spent 4 hours there and there was never a dull moment. We live close by Disney and this is the #1 place to go.

Second time visiting Bull and Bear, first time was only 3 months before. And it was just as delicious and outstanding as the first visit. Everything we ate was high quality and full of flavor. The service was impeccable and every person that attended us was so friendly, made sure we were treated right and had all we needed. Is now ranked my favorite restaurant and can’t wait to come back.

Food was fine, nothing special. Ingredients were outstanding, recipes were overly complicated and not worthy. The beef short rib was perfectly cooked, but absolutely ruined by the worst sauce I've ever tasted. Fried chicken was amazing. Best part of the meal was the frites.. That should not be the case in such an expensive restaurant

The appetizers are out of this world delicious. I especially enjoyed the pasta explosion and the deviled eggs. I wish the portions were a little larger. They serve three deviled eggs and five mini pasta explosions. We also ordered the buratta, and it would have been amazing if they left off the whipped cheese and gave you a larger portion of mozzarella. We especially enjoyed our short rib and the fried chicken. The fillet mignon was nothing special. Our favorite desserts, in order, were the cheesecake and then peanut butter. I was not a fan of the nights special dessert: the beignets. They were out of the Lemon so we did not get to try it.

My favorite part was the ambiance. I have been to many stuffy fancy steakhouses but this one has a great atmosphere. The wait staff are excellent (I prefer a single waiter but that's a personal preference). I just think with one it is more of a personal service. The steak was very good. The tableside ceasar salad was excellent. Bar variety is excellent. Dessert was very good.

The food was, as always, prepared masterfully. The service was as top notch as ever. Where they're beginning to slip is allowing 8 year-olds play with their tablets at full volume, and allowing teenagers, and some adults who should know better, in with park clothing on. It really takes away from the ambiance. There are plenty of restaurants around to do these things. Bull & Bear shouldn't be one of them. It's too good for that.
