Was here once with no plans to return. Wife and I dined expecting attentive service but sole waiter was enamored of a larger table and largely either ignored us or provided perfunctory service. Food not exceptional and certainly not good enough quality wise or price wise to deserve a second chance.

The Bears Steakhouse is a family tradition, one handed down from generation to generation. (They don't advertise, so you need to know how to reach them!)

Papa Bear sadly is unable to work, but son John is carrying on the remarkable work of running the finest steakhouse in NY, and Mama still makes fantastic soups.

The Bears serves everything family style, and is renowned for Chateaubriand (you need to call ahead, for two or more) and prime rib. Highest quality beef, perfectly prepared, terrific service. Unbelievable.

Desserts are also homemade and exquisite. Expensive, yes, but well worth the money for the best meal you will ever have.

Two of us had the prime rib, one the delmonico, and the 4th scallops. We all enjoyed our food that night but also our take homes were enough for the next night too1 This place never disappoints.

I heard about this place for many years, but never made it there. Glad we went. Gave the restaurant a "very good" because the roast beef was super exceptional and the large shrimp cocktail excellent; however, the Delmonico steak was disappointing... not tender. Salad was fresh and crisp.. bleu cheese dressing missing chunks. Portions were very large. Most of the patrons seemed to have ordered the Chateaubriand in advance which looked very good.

good food but they are a little tooo full of themselves. Not the least bit pleasant when making a reservation. Shrimp cocktail sauce much too hot.I Iike hot food but this sauce is not edible wait staff intimidates you if you complain. Overall foor is good but I could do with less small talk from the waiter.
