The Tounnado Beef Crusted with Bleu Cheese was the best I have ever had!! Pricey but tasty.

Not a blow you away experience, but food was reasonable and service slightly above average. Portions were appropriate.

Dined here recently on a week-night. The bar area was full, with the filming of a CNBC show in progress. The restaurant, at 6pm, was nearly empty but had filled by the time we left. Our waiter was initially extremely attentive but by the time he had more than 2 tables, he literally disappeared. Our food was very average...The Waldorf Salad was bland as was the snapper I ordered as my entree. The portions are sizable but given the mediocre food, who really wants a huge portion? The prices are very high, even by New York standards. Sides alone are $10/each and again, very average. Our check included drinks we did not order-perhaps an honest mistake but a nusance nonetheless. If you don't think about it too much, this restaurant has fine decor, fine service, and fine food...But if you DO think about what you're getting, you'll notice that the service and the food aren't on par with the prices or the hotel's overall reputation.

Terrible value. Steaks are eh. Prices are astronomical. Atmosphere is very old man, cigar bar type. When you walk in initially you see tons of youngish golddiggers in the bar looking to pick up some tycoon. For the money you spend, the steaks are edible at best. We ordered a porterhouse and filet both medium rare. They were overcooked and the edges were completely burnt black to the point that it did not taste good. Apps were average. Drinks were obv very pricey.

Went to the Bull & Bear on Saturday night. As New Yorkers we are always in search of the perfect steak. This time, we got pretty close. The atmosphere was fantastic, and the wait staff was great. They knew we were off to see a show and kept our schedule in mind. We were not rushed at all. They staged our courses perfectly, and gave us plenty of time to sit and enjoy our wine. The fish was also great...huge portions...can't beat that.

You don't have to stay at the Waldorf to enjoy the best steak in the city. It truly was the best steak I have ever had, and the lobster was delicious too. Great wine list and with their new renovations, it does not feel stuffy like the past. This is definitely the best steak house in New York!

Indifferent service and so-so steaks make this not worthy of sharing space in the Waldorf Astoria. After I had taken a bite of my steak to find it was not medium rare as ordered, the waiter took it from me and swapped it with my friend's. That's what I would expect at a chain restaurant.
