We were greeted by a very personable Hostess and seated promptly according to our reservation. The hostess clearly enjoyed her job! She was engaging and cheerful.

Immediately we were greeted by the dining room manager and introduced to the service staff. The service was excellent and the service staff were observant that my group was conducting business and made every effort to be unobtrusive, which I appreciated. They wait staff were all well dressed, well groomed, and were knowledgeable and professional. This restaurant understands fine dining and executed flawlessly.

The food was really nice! Prepared as order and presented very well. I had a vary nice Lobster Bisque also got with splitting a wedge salad to start. The bisque was great and the wedge was a creative twist on the old favorite. Very nice presentation with a great Russian dressing. My maim course was a Wagu Strip and it was prepared perfectly. It was very good! I had their version of au gratin potatoes. It was Avery cool presentation and the potatoes were really good. Paired well with the steak! I also had a mushroom medley. All of the food was perfect and delivered on time together for the whole table.

My friends had Filets and or other cuts of steaks. All were perfect and everyone really enjoyed their food.

This place will be great for a business diner, a dining destination experience, a great date night, or a romantic evening. The staff is on point!!

It is not an inexpensive place to eat but it is well worth the price tag if you want a truly first class dining experience!!

Hope this helps you decide!

We have been to Bull and Bear several times with great experiences during previous visits. This one was not just the worst experience at Bull and Bear but one of the worst in general. The evening started out okay, the attention from various people started off strong but dwindled fast. Our servers did not seem to communicate well so we sat multiple times with no drinks, waiting very extensive time for the main course and dessert, and for the check. We were there for almost 3 hours and many times sat there, waiting. The server also came back and removed my wife's drink without asking if she wanted another and we had not even been served dinner. Typically the meals for the entire table come out at the same time. Everyone around us seemed to get that level of service. My meal came out first and about 3 minutes later, my wife's meal came out. We continued to wait for more drinks and to order dessert. Once we were done with dessert, we waited for about 20 min and finally had to ask another server to bring our check. When we were walking out, our main server was sitting at the front of the restaurant chatting with the hostess.

This was just not the experience that we expected from this restaurant. Bull and Bear is typically the pillar of service, however, this evening they failed. It was such a special place, one that we typically would plan an evening around on our many trips to Orlando and the Waldorf. Unfortunately, I would prefer going to another fine dining option who seems to care about their customers.

Not our first visit to Bull and Bear and it never disappoints. The service is exceptional. Servers are professional, efficient, friendly and really know their stuff. The food is always wonderful. Highly recommend the fried chicken. It is so unique and unlike anything you will get anywhere else. They have a wonderful cocktail and wine list. Something for everyone. Ambience is lovely.

We visited Bull & Bear to experience their Food & Wine Weekends. We all ordered the 5-course meal with wine pairing. As always, the food was incredible and service was exceptional. Tim, who we always ask for, is extremely knowledgeable about everything from the food to wine and everything in between. There is no better place for exquisite food and amazing service in Orlando than Bull & Bear.

My wife and I chose the Bull and Bear Restaurant in Orlando to celebrate our anniversary. What a great decision because it was not just a dinner but a complete dining experience. We had a beautiful view from the dining room’s panoramic windows overlooking the hotel’s lovely landscaped pool area.
Our waiter Tim introduced himself and assured us that he would do his best to make our evening a special one. We informed him that my wife was gluten sensitive and he indicated that would be no problem. Dinner started with a classic Caesar salad made table side which was delicious and also enjoyable to watch as the waiter explained each step. My wife chose the pan roasted Columbia River salmon which she said was the freshest and best she had ever eaten. I had the Syrah based slow roasted short rib on the bone. It was delicious but so huge I could not finish so took the remainder home. We chose the potato pave and cream corn for our side. The corn kernels were large and very crisp unlike any cream corn I have ever eaten before. Tim helped with wine pairings. For desert we had the Crème Brulee with a dark chocolate base and the preserved lemon which has a lemon sorbet and lemon curd interior which is inserted after an 18 hour sous vide process.
To top off an already incredible evening since our table was next to the large windows, we were treated to the Disney fireworks that take place each evening.

The food was delicious. However, the service was a problem. Coming from Chicago where we go to upscale steakhouses and restaurants constantly, we know good service from bad. The service did not match what you’d expect from a restaurant of this kind. Our server could not get our drink order correct for the life of him. We would ask about a salad and he started describing an entree. We asked for something that never appeared until we asked from someone else. For these prices, which are high, service should be impeccable.

Beutiful, fresh crab was ruined by being smothered in a salty cream sauce. Wagu sirloin was cooked properly but tough. Burrata salad fell short. Restaurant is good but they try too hard and over-complicate good ingredients.

This experience was just what I wanted to celebrate our 21st wedding anniversary. The service was top notch. They seated us by the window so we could see the fireworks from Epcot & Hollywood Studios during our meal. The food was delicious and they comped our dessert as an anniversary gift. The food is pricey but well worth the experience for a special occasion, plus they covered the valet parking. I highly recommend Bear and Bull for a memorable evening.
