We four had our first - and only - dinner in the Bauer Kitchen. The food was quite tasty and came in huge portions but it was all meat! Those of us who crave balance in our meals would have appreciated 2 or 3 veggie servings with less meat. Our server was helpful and attentive when she had the time... More

This was one of the worst meals I've had in a very long time. I don't typically take the time to write a review, but I feel this experience warranted it. Place has a great atmosphere and it's really a shame they can't pair it with good food. I ordered the short rib gnocchi and the dish lacked any flavor... More

Certainly the Bauer Kitchen Rocks itself. Beautiful place, warm, cozy, well decorated restaurant. If you are thinking about having a great steak dinner, don't think it twice, this is right the place to go 2. I had a NY Striploin AAA with Caramelized Onions (shallots), it was cooked to perfection (med/well) accompanied with house veggies and fresh cut fries. I... More

Having recently written a less than favourable review about our less than favourable breakfast at The Bauer Kitchen, I thought it only fair to balance those comments off after my very enjoyable dinner tonight. A buddy and I wanted to grab a casual dinner, so we sat at one of the bar tables, and had a couple beers, from TBK's... More

I heard co-workers talking about the Bauer Kitchen and looked it up on trip advisor. Sounded good! Had an early dinner here on a Saturday evening and it was fabulous. Server was great, sorry...don"t remember your name. Food was really good, nice variety on menu.

We went for a family birthday and the food, drinks and dessert was all top notch. I especially liked my appetizer which was a fish taco and it was very delicious. I recommend this restaurant for a special occasion and I look forward to going again.

Our family recently had dinner here after attending our daughters fall convocation. Very nice ambience & pretty decent noise level (i.e. not too loud) for a Friday night). Good service, quality of food was very good as well as the overall presentation of the food. Decent wine & beer selection as well. While we likely won't be back in the... More

I've been to The Bauer Kitchen twice now and I would go many more times! This place will not disappoint! The wine selection is extensive and offers great options. Servers were helpful in selecting a brand that I loved and I have been trying to find at the LCBO for some time now. Appetizers were fabulous, good selection and very... More

Good wine list and food...wonderful ambiance. Busy place so suggest you would make reservations. They have an incredible pizza oven and an open kitchen so you can watch your food being prepared
