They did not clean my lobster properly, but we had great steaks. Ask for a booth against the window. Some good people watching.

Enjoyed dinner with a colleague. We shared a fabulous seasfood platter for an appetizer. It includedshrimp, lobster, clams on the half shell, and assorted seafood for an entree I had two baby lamb xhops and broccoli. The chops were nicely broiled. The wine was very nice. The dinner was pricey: $65 for the appetizer; $48 for the lamb chops; + the sides. If you're in the mood for a stleakhouse in this neighborhood, this is a good place. Just be willing to pay the steep price.

I always wanted to go to the Bull & Bear because of its reputation as a classic bar. It meet my expectations, but didn't blow me a away. Service, food and drinks were fine. A lot of activity for late afternoon/early evening. Wish fox business was still shooting "Happy Hour". there.

Loved theservice and the Cosmo. We had a bottle of wine and between that and the Cosmo I was in a great mood. The atmosphere is very old world and the menu choices suited. I had the entrecote of beef- lovely.
Was a delightful experience especially as we were ale to just saunter up to our room after.
