    People say it’s another steakhouse. True but they are a notch above. They do fish and chicken really well. When does someone order chicken in a steakhouse? When it is amazing. Service was spot on as always. Antoine was really helpful with wine as was Gustavo who recommended a great Napa Bordeaux blend.

    My wife and I ate here recently with high expectations because of the great reviews. Although we are not gourmet types we have eaten at many top tier restaurants in the US and the world as we travel extensively and have many years experience. In comparison to other fine steakhouse we have tried I have to say that this restaurant is good, but not great. Focusing on the main beef course we found the Bone in Rib Eye to be cooked according to order order. It was tender, but not very juicy and not as tasty as others that we have experience at other high end steakhouses. It was not on the menu, but offered as special. I made the mistake of not asking the price and was quite surprised when the check arrived and found that we had ordered an a la carte steak that amounted to about 12 ounces of meat with the bone removed for $128! I ordered the veal chop cooked medium rare. Arrived medium to medium well. It was tender and tasted fairly good, but had a bit of a gamey taste and smell that took away from it over all. I figure the excellent reviews may be because of the enamored guests at this Disney resort who are relishing in the one in a lifetime Disney experience and lavish overpriced $500 meal at the renown Waldorf Astoria they can brag about. However, if you are in the area and you really want a better and cheaper fine steakhouse experience the Capital Grill (and several others) will do a better job of it.

    We were visiting for the second time at bull & bear. The first time a few months ago was amazing: the servers made my kids feel like royalty and the food was awesome the first time also. This time unfortunately, I was disappointed. The server was not attentive. He felt the need to outline the prices of the specials with us but not the other tables around us because I guess we look poor or something. We were off in a dark corner. The high chair they brought for my 1 year old had about an inch of dust on it. I had to ask twice for water for her and it took forever. The food wasn’t amazing. The heirloom salad was super salty. There was a big wait between courses. It was definitely not worth the price this time.

    It was our first time dining at Bull and Bear, in celebration of our anniversary. It started off nice with a table near a window decorated with rose pedals and a happy anniversary. The wait staff works in teams but it seemed they didn’t have a team meeting that day as we kept getting mixed messaging from different staff. Menu is extensive and can be overwhelming. After we decided what to order we were informed that they ran out of the “famous” fried chicken. Which of course is what my wife wanted. So she then decided to have the Dover sole. Only to be told they don’t have that item tonight which was just told to us that was one of the specials not 5min ago. I ask if she wanted to leave and was about to get up when a manager came over to tell us that yes they have the sole. This place is pushy when it comes to try to get you to spend more on cocktails or wine. Mind you for a party of 2 you can easily push up to $400 without realizing it. And we stopped ourselves from getting caught up in the moment. Personally I have had better experiences at other restaurants at a much cheaper cost. The steak I had was nothing special even though they act like it is the greatest creation in the world. If your looking for a romantic dinner I say give it a try even though our night wasn’t special. Just keep your guard up if your watching your hard earned money. Personally I would recommend La Luce over bull and bear.

    We have a lovely birthday dinner. We had met Eric, a server at a dinner earlier in the week and he shared that he worked at Bull and Bear. We told him we would be joining on Friday 7/29 and he said he would make sure we had excellent service and he did! We called ahead to inquire about allergy friendly desserts for my son and the GM called me back and said she would speak with the Pastry chef to have something made special for him.

    Food: 10/10 - very yummy Service: 8/10 : servers removing diners plates when other members of the group are still eating was a bit annoying Ambience: 5/10: very noisy as there were lots of young children eating in the restaurant. On the whole a tad disappointed. Was expecting a fabulous night out to celebrate a big birthday but came away feeling a little deflated. Would we visit again, probably not - needs to be an adults only restaurant in my opinion.

    I booked Bull&Bear for my husband’ birthday. And they’ve already known we have special event. They put birthday card on our table in advance, gave us small birthday’s dish and also write “Happy birthday” on our dessert! So sweet and detailed service, amazing food and nice environment! Highly recommend! We definitely will come again.

    Our dinner at Bull & Bear was spectacular! From the moment we walked in to the end of the evening we felt so special. We were celebrating our 5 year anniversary and we were greeted with roses on our table. The service was amazing. Everyone was very nice and made us feel so special. The food was delicious and the presentation was a really nice touch. The views from our table were beautiful. I highly recommend Bull & Bear for any occasion!

    The atmosphere at the restaurant was amazing, servicer and his assistance were very much on point. We ordered 4 appetizers and tomahawk steak. All the appetizers (oysters, salads and carpaccio) were amazing- the presentation, the taste, everything. Tomahawk steak (that was supposed to be the highlight of the night) I won't lie - we've had better. It was done as requested, perfectly cooked, but was missing flavor. Mushrooms that we ordered as a side were too salty and mashed potatoes were runny. We were celebrating a birthday that night, so the desert ended up being a highlight of the night. First - when offered a desert, the birthday guy asked for flaming creme brulee, and the waiter said they were sold out (even though we asked for one in the reservation notes). That got him disappointed because creme brulee is one of his favorite deserts. So he declined any desert. Our table team disappeared in the kitchen and after a while came out with a cart and made a nitro sorbet tableside and brought the flaming creme brulee which was a great surprise and an amazing finale for the night. Whether it is a special occasion, romantic date or you want to enjoy a night at one of the top restaurants in Orlando, Bull and Bear is definitely a great place to enjoy the evening at.

    The service feels very personal. From the moment you check in you are referred to by name in every conversation The food is exceptional and the overall experience and way it is served to you is also brilliant. My Fillet was perfect. My wife got the fried chicken and loved it. I was speechless after the dessert (the lemon) I had heard numerous times how good it was but having it in person it exceeded my own high expectations. I can’t recommend Bull and Bear highly enough.

    Exceptional service but wasn’t very impressed with the food. Lobster bisque had one small piece of lobster, pasta explosion’s truffle mushroom had absolutely no smell or taste for a truffle. Foie was good. Salmon too Mushi and Iberian chop too salty. Creme brûlée was good. Overall not worth a second visit in our opinion. Service, again was the saving grace.
