Bull & Bear Steakhouse, the upscale restaurant at the upscale Waldorf Astoria Orlando, has been named one of OpenTable’s 100 Best Restaurants in American for 2018. Bull & Bear was the only Central Florida restaurant on the list and one of only four in the state. Other Florida restaurants cited are: Buccan, Palm Beach; Kyu, Miami; and La Nouvelle Maison, Boca Raton.
OpenTable, which for many years has been one of the top online reservation systems, compiles the annual list based on reviews of more than 28,000 restaurants submitted by over 12 million verified diners.
The list is presented in alphabetical order and not by rankings. The Bull & Bear entry notes that was recommended by 93 percent of the people who had dined there after making a reservation through OpenTable. It is also listed as Best Overall in Orlando. (Bull & Bear is one of the finalists for our 2018 Best Overall Foodster Awards for Independent Restaurants. It was also a winner of our 2017 Best Steakhouse category.)
Bull & Bear is a second location for the original restaurant at the original Waldorf Astoria in New York City. Notably, the Manhattan steakhouse was not cited on the list. A couple of restaurants on the list of 100 do note multiple locations, such as The Capital Grille.
