Bull&bear: Dined at this location the last 2 weekends now but first time at the Bull & Bear restaurant. Good location and high up on the 18th floor so good views of DIFC & downtown. It was a R&B night so appealed to us. Good song selection. Dimmed lights, open kitchen area so you can see the chef preparing the  meals. We ordered the 300g New Zealand Rib eye steak medium well while I had the Black angus Omaha rib eye 300g medium well. Found it a little strange that we had to pay additionally for sauce, all the same I had the bernese sauce while my mrs had the creamy mushroom. After ordering the waitress prompted us to order a starter as there was a delay in the kitchen which I found strange as its only steak and doesnt take long to prepare. We were given some complimentary bread with butter and the butter was a good temperature to easily spread. We ordered and shared some mac & cheese...delicious & cheesy. Thick and stuck together how I prefer, good texture. We had some mash potatoes, steak fries and broccolini in basil, hummus, chili & garlic. Good atmosphere, good setting, good food & the service was very good. We used an Entertainer voucher for buy 1 get 1 free so helped the final bill. Reasonably priced.

We had an excellent dining experience whilst staying in the hotel. Food was Top Class. Having the option to order from the breakfast menu or grabbing from the buffet, you’ll have a lot to eat at breakfast with excellent recommendations from the all-time smiling and anticipating Waiters. We just loved their recommendations. Dinner was absolutely amazing. Excellent food and perfect plating. Chef personally checking up on your food quality and experience was super great. Thank you Chefs. A big thank you to the Team and particularly to Ai_she never stops smiling, Priscilla, Elenika, Oybek and Bek. This restaurant is a Must Try.

The entrance is beautiful and the restaurant is on the 18th floor. You're welcomed with a bull & bear sculpture at the entrance and a friendly hostess. Chić modern restaurant. You get a beautiful view of the night city lights and most of the well lit highlight buildings on seating. They have a selection of cocktails, mocktails and wines. For the red wine drinkers I'd highly recommend the merlot , petit Verdot, syrah. A beautiful smooth south African glass of wine. And for cocktails, they are all well done and upto the quality. Food is great, we had a salad and pickled avocado avocado as starters. (I will be biased and say the avocado was the winner of the two nit only the presentation was well done but the taste was impeccable) We then had the ribeye which was mouth watering, tender, juicy enough and very well prepared with two different sides. Mashed potatoes and fries . The restaurant staff are friendly and helpful with recommendations if indecisive and as such make the whole ambience comfortably blissful. If you are a steak or meat person, this is the place to definitely visit.

I went on Friday with my family, I like the place but there are still few pointers to point out: 1. I like the live music, but the speakers are really loud and the place literally turned into a night club, we could hardly hear each other talking so we had to scream to talk to each other. 2. The place is clearly understaffed, service was bad and at some points we had to wait for long times to get what we wanted. 3. We ordered four main courses and one starter, for the starter we ordered prawn cocktail which was delicious everyone enjoyed it. For the main courses we had two Australian Ribeye, Beef Rossini and Salmon. Beef Rossini and Salmon were really good and cooked to top standards, but I wish I could say the same about the steaks. One steak was asked to be well done and the other medium well, neither came to our order, well done was medium well and medium well was medium rare and we were really disappointed. 4. We reached the place at 8:55 we ordered our food at 9:05, we got our starter at 9:35 and main course at 10:00 which is a lot of time waiting. They also forgot the drinks as usual (this is not the first time). Overall our experience wasn’t that good to be honest, they need to work more on their service and overall experience.

Worst brunch in Dubai ever had. Food is really bad with salad over of vinegar and meat so hard. A duo band was playing so unpleasant music with a terrible English accent and it seems to stay in a cheap pub instead of a restaurant. A manager called Gonzalo was flirting with the singer all the time instead of taking care of the guests we was waiting 10 minutes to order one more bottle of water, a real shame. Won’t back again and not recommended.

My husband and I had wanted to try this brunch for a while and we are glad that when we called to book Friday morning, we were able to get in. Everything is brought to the table which is necessary during Covid times as it is very safe. Food was fabulous and we were asked by our server did we want to repeat any of the starters, should you want more. We were very happy with the service, there was one instance where we were waiting on cocktails being brought to table after asking our server three times to try the bear in the market drink that she had recommended. The guitarist was extremely talented. It was a shame it wasn’t more busy as it was a high quality brunch and the little gimmicks about wolf on Wall Street made what was a mature crowd liven up and have some fun. Shots delivered to the table and guns shooting money with the chance to win golden tickets for free drinks and even a free brunch. We were lucky to get two free golden tickets for drinks and we noticed at the end that a free brunch for one voucher was at the back of my husbands seat. We booked in again for end of feb and are looking forward to it. We finished the day at the rooftop bar using the free drinks we had and enjoyed another drink each before going home. In the last part of the brunch, we were talking to a young man called Joi from Lebanon who took our last order drinks and was very personable. He was very informative and helpful, and he’s a great asset to the team at Bull and Bear. We would also like to try the restaurant in an evening at some point in the future. A lovely hotel.

An amazing experience combining food, entertainment and service. Quite possibly the best steaks we have eaten in Dubai. The taste of steak and sides was incredible. But what really blew us away with this restaurant was the outstanding professional service by our waitress Eliisa. I don’t think I can remember many meals that I come away being most impressed by such amazing service. She completely made the experience for us with her enthusiasm, knowledge of the food, bubbly personality and attentiveness to us. I would like to pay a big special mention to her. She is the reason we will come back to this restaurant and deserves all the praise from our fanatic evening here. Thank you Eliisa. Entertainment was also fantastic, with a live singer performing. Each night at the restaurant hosts a different themed night for entertainment such as soul and jazz. My only mention is the food is on the high side of the price range with no discounts taken for any platforms which was a little disappointing. Drink prices are the usual (overpriced dubai price) of 50+ dirhams for a bottled beer, so be prepared for a hefty bill. However we were happy to pay this with the outstanding service as mentioned.

As my friend's birthday was on 26th of June, I invited him to Waldorf Astoria Dubai International Financial Center into an F&B called: Bull & Bear.

The vibe was so American jazz style, which matches the Burj Khalifa view Dubai skyline. Moreover, both the "Puy Lentil Soup" and "Super Green Salad" as a starter we're mouth watering.

 Secondly, jumping into the main courses both "Harissa Marinated Chicken" and "Scottish Salmon Pave" were unforgettable taste as well. 
 Finally, here it comes the last boom with the stunning signature dessert called "Salted Carmel Cake". I would also like to give a big thanks for the Japanese waiter which served the amazing food. 

I Can't wait to go again to enjoy the excellent experience.

Behind the closed door you keep guessing what to expect? The door is opened and you are welcomed in and escorted to your table facing one of the prominent places in the heart of Dubai. If lucky like us you face the world tallest building Burj Khalifa. The interior of the restaurant is dark elegant. You get to see and order from the food and drinks menu including their signature cocktails. The plates are beautifully designed, the taste is really nice and the portions are generous. Highly recommended to share the plates to enjoy the varieties offered. Of course the vital thing for me always the staff .. they are all friendly and smiley. Worth trying and enjoying the place and the food.

Once again it has been a great disappointment at the quality of what is being offered in Dubai. The venue is beautiful I’ll give it that but the service was not trained well and the glasses smelt of the dirty rag that had been used to polish them. As for the food it was warm not hot by the time it reached the table and the tiny little baby potato that was served with the steaks was better left off of the plate and not served at all.

The hotel and its service itself are not so bad, but the real disaster is about restaurants and food. We visited the Bull and Bear restaurant for the brunch and it was really bad and not pleasant experience, the food was served badly and the management was not able to follow our dietary requirements. And during the brunch, cherry on the cake! a noisy and cheap band with a terrible singer trying to sing in English that was also flirting with a manager during the break just near of us, but we also had kids at our table so we was shocked! Never again in the hotel cause of the bad experience had with food and restaurant.

The Bull & Bear restaurant, overall, was the best restaurant I have been to. The service, quality of food, ambience, environment, value, everything was as good, if not, better than any other restaurant in Dubai. Starting the moment you walk in, until the moment you leave the staff provides you with the absolute best service you could hope for. From jazz Wednesdays to the live music on Saturday evenings, I have not been in a better restaurant atmosphere. The staff’s patience and politeness supersede any other restaurant in Dubai. The pride they take in their service reflects in the depth with which they know the menu and contributes to the impeccable service they deliver. The staff substantiates the value they place on their customers with the way they treat each other and the love and appreciation they show. They make an effort to find your particular wants and desires and do everything in their power to provide you the absolute best and most complete service every time you step in the restaurant. For breakfast, lunch, and dinner I absolutely recommend that if you are visiting Dubai, you make plans to visit this restaurant at least one time.

review for a amazing host/ leader SIMONA I almost never write restaurant reviews, but we met a staff (manager) there who had to be recognized publicly. Her name is SIMONA and she is phenomenal.We were 21 and she catered to four of us in the group. Our group is presently staying in the hotel , however this review is only for the dinner last night and especially for her.She was prompt, smart, caring, and knowledgable about the food, very flexible for our requests and she fulfilled all of it. And she just had this friendly demeanor about her that made us all happy.Overall the ambience and the team was great. By the way, the food is pretty good and the menu is diverse. ..

We have been here a couple of times, it is truly one of the most enjoyable dining experiences in Dubai. First of all, all the staff are very welcoming and attentive, which makes a big difference. Also, the space is huge (and very elegantly decorated), so it is really easy to eat in a socially distanced way. The food is creative yet delicious, especially many of the apetizers and meat dishes are great (the hamburgers are also delicious).. The new tasting menu they`ve added is a bit more nouvelle cuisine than the rest of the main menu. A great place with lovely decor and wondeful ambiance and food, what more could one ask for!

This was my first visit but i will definitely return. It’s a restaurant that has a beautiful night time view over Zabeel. Make sure you get a table that has the view. The food is exceptional. My guest and I both had tenderloins and they were cooked to perfection and very tasty. I also had the desert where they pour hot chocolate to melt a chocolate dome. Wonderful. Enough for 2 people. Reasonably priced and they take entertainer. The service was friendly and both of our servers had excellent conversation. Well done
