My mother and I had lunch here recently on my trip to Ontario and I was very very impressed with the turkey burger vietnamese style. It was moist, crumbly, tasty and the toppings were the perfect sweet/sour mix. I have no idea if the rest of their food is good or not, but this burger is to die for. I'd... More

We had reservations at 10:30 am and I strongly recommended and suggest booking for a table. The restaurant is part of a residential and commercial building. It has an industrial open concept atmosphere and decor may not be for everyone, but I personally enjoy the unique and slightly up scale environment. The hostesses are attractive, young ladies, very friendly and... More

We were here a few weeks ago and I must say that while we had exceptional service from Reade, the menu isn't what it used to be. Other than a steak, there really aren't any main courses that I look at and think, oh wow, that looks delicious. I find it takes me forever to make up my mind because... More

Big table of 9 but then someone should have been helping our waitress if she couldn't handle it. We waited a long time for her to come introduce herself, then water, then no wine menu, menu requested, then wine ordered, then food ordered, then bread. At this point it's been an hour. We waited A LOT between each of these... More

New menu options, great service, warm cozy atmosphere when it's -30C outside = another great experience at the Bauer Kitchen. Loved all the duck menu options and their "Winter Mojito!"

Overcooked steaks and strange things in the salad. Don't listen to the reviews, I would go to Gilt or Beertown (which is one of their restaurants but so much better) 9 people, 2 people at their meal

Enjoyed a lovely breakfast on Saturday. Our waitress Ashley was excellent, and very professional. Both of us had the smoked salmon eggs Benedict. The eggs were perfect, the salmon melt in your mouth and the hollandaise was just the right amount. Wonderful atmosphere made this an even better experience. Worth every penny.
