Ate dinner here with wife and daughter June 2018. The tomahawk steak for two was top-notch delicious, just writing about it makes me crave. The house specialty chips (fries) were so awesome because they catch the drippings from the steak.

The negroni was the best I’ve ever had. The ice cube was made of black coffee, and as it melted it kept the drink interestingly complex. Loved it.

Funny, we felt like we were being waited on by Matt Damon due to the look and smooth style of the waiter ;p

Nice high end steakhouse. Traditional steak house will not disappoint, the family needs to be in the mood for steak. The do offer some other items such as lamb, fish and chicken but then why go to a steakhouse. Don’t forget desert and the lemon, one very unique and interesting tasting desert.

We celebrated the hubs b-day here with our daughter, son in law, niece and granddaughter. It could not have been better. We had exemplary and solicitous service, including accommodating the boisterous presence of a 2 year old. I have not been shy about publishing that this restaurant is the ONLY reason I can be convinced to visit Orlando; while all the others enjoy Orlando, it is clear that all of us feel the same way about this place. It is consistently a first rate experience but they went over and above to make our "family experience" and my husband's birthday extra special. Kudos to Justin again for starting us off with libations they are all still talking about! I cannot give this establishment a higher endorsement--it's a must.

We are a couple in our late 20s and visited Bull & Bear in June 2016 when we were staying at the Hilton Bonnet Creek. We love eating good quality steak and this restaurant, in our opinion, provides the finest steak with the best service in the most beautiful restaurant. We have eaten in many steak restaurants around the world but Bull & Bear beats them all!

We visited Bull & Bear to have a special meal before seeing Cirque du Soleil's show La Nouba in Disney Springs. We booked the restaurant through their website from the UK with ease.

The restaurant eases class, it is spacious, the atmosphere wonderful and our waiter was extremely knowledgeable in all aspects of the food and wine - my partner loved our waiter's recommendation of a particular red wine that had chocolate notes to pair with his steak. We truly felt that we were the only ones that mattered, making sure our food was perfect for us, our glasses topped up and we were happy; without being too attentive so that we could enjoy our own company. I must say that the restaurant had fabulous views overlooking the Waldorf Astoria pool - we felt very lucky to have such a prominent table with a spectacular view of the sunset.

We regret that we booked the restaurant prior to La Nouba because we wanted to enjoy our meal and take our time rather than rushing to catch the resort bus to Disney Springs in time for the show. As a result of this we missed desserts. Bull & Bear is not a place for a quick meal, they really take good care of you and is a place you visit to enjoy the food, service and ambience. Please note that the restaurant is a fairly long walk from the Hilton Bonnet Creek (all indoor), past the conference centre and through the Waldorf Astoria to the other side of the hotel (in case you intend to wear heels!).

We will be visiting Orlando in 2019 and will once again be staying at the Hilton Bonnet Creek so Bull & Bear is top of our list to visit again - but this time we will certainly be making an evening of it!
