"The service was excellent, as one would expect at the Waldorf-Astoria. The food was average. I have had better steaks at lesser steakhouses. I have never paid as high a price for even the best steak."

"Great New York ambiance and feeling. Amazing steak for us both and they were kind enough to provide a complimentary dessert to the birthday girl. Bruno's table service was incredible. Very enjoyable New York experience and would recommend."

"I have wanted to eat here for some time now. I did enjoy my meal and the drinks selection and cocktails menu was very good. It didn't quite have that Wow factor I was expecting but I enjoyed the lively atmosphere. Lots of people around the bar and several groups. Not necessarily a romantic surrounding but very nice all the same. I would come again if in New York and I had a free evening but wouldn't necessarily book in advance especially. Service was the stand out of this evening."

"Amazing service and exceptional surroundings. Low lighting, soft music and very romantic. Food was probably the best we've eaten - we've eaten in many places around the world but the steak really was perfect.
An absolute must if visiting NYC.

"We have eaten at the Bull & Bear Steakhouse for our anniversary dinner for several years. As always, the service was excellent and the presentation was very good. Unfortunately, almost every item was over salted this year. While the food was good, it was not great, and was no where near as good as it should have been for a restaurant with the reputation (and cost) of the Bull & Bear. Sadly, we will be looking for a new "great restaurant" for next year's anniversary dinner."

"This a regular spot for my family and me when we're in NY. We enjoy the atmosphere, service and, of course, the food is second to none. The steaks are perfectly prepared every time and the seafood is fresh. I wholeheartedly recommend the Bull & Bear !!!"

"I have frequented B&B many time as a business traveler and this was the most disappointing meal that I've experienced. My reservation was for 1 and although there were numerous dining room tables open I was shunted to the bar next to the revolving door. When I asked about another table I was informed that "as a single diner you should like the activity of the bar." If I wanted the bar why reserve a table?
The service was very typical of a bar environment: that is to say they are better equipped to fill drinks versus food and not as attentive. I was never offered any bread; they forgot one of my orders and I nearly finished before it arrived; the food was pretty good as usual but when you pay a premium for the hotel location convenience and for the name, you expect a minimum level of service. Also, first time that I recall a mandatory 18% tip on the bill. Almost like they expected a dissatisfied customer."

"Regulars at the Waldorf Astoria New York, we we have dined at Bull & Bear on a few occasions in the past. At no time was there anything particularly memorable about the evening. We found that we dined there out of convenience when arriving late at the hotel. However, we decided to give it another try last week, and we are certainly happy that we did. It so happens that Damien Collins was named General Manager a few months ago, and he has changed the personality of the entire restaurant. He is INVOLVED and quickly reads his clientele, making you feel quite welcome and letting you know that he and his staff are here to serve you. My husband and I are definitely food and wine connoisseurs. Quickly recognizing our knowledge of wine and desiring to pair multiple wines with food, not only did Damien demonstrate a clear knowledge of wines, but also brought out little gems from the wine cellar that were not on the wine list. And the food, absolutely superb. The chef and his staff did a wonderful job with every course, with careful attention to every detail. The wait staff was highly professional and accommodating to our every need, as well. Not only did we have a leisurely dinner with no time restraints, we returned five days later for another outstanding evening. Our nine-year old, who dines the world over with us, also had nothing but compliments for the food and attention that he received, as well. It's amazing what outstanding service can do to change your attitude about a restaurant. We highly recommend the Bull & Bear and recommend that you become acquainted with Damien Collins! We shall certainly return."
