Consistently Good

We've eaten at Bauer Kitchen several times and the food is always pretty good. Last night we had the chicken taco appetizer which was delicious! For mains we had the braised ribs and fish and chips - both were okay (braised rib was overly salty). I would recommend the Prickly Pear Martguerita... read more

We eat at the "kitchen" when we want an upscale meal with guests from out of town or some special occasions. The menu is small but everything we have had there is very good, might be hard to please children with the selection. Not cheap, but not stupid expensive either. Nice building and atmosphere

Myself and two friends had dinner just to catch up. We usually go to Nic and Nats for tapas but we couldn't arrange dinner for Tuesday. Getting to the restaurant was very difficult due to construction and we do not know Kitchener Waterloo well. Service was very good throughout. We were seated near the door even though the restaurant was... More

Service was good not great. Some tables seemed to get more attention and food sooner. Once the food arrived it was excellent. The onion fondue dip was awesome and the duck confit was one of the best I have had. My wife and I will be back again.

Aside from the great atmosphere this restaurant has, the food is excellent. The menu has great choices for appetizers and entrees. The wait staff recommended the calamari and I was hesitant as every menu has calamari. The calamari was memorable with fried capers, peppers and aioli -so glad we tried it. The main courses were all delicious and I could... More

Visited for a birthday celebration. Looking forward to a nice dinner and found the food to be very average. Restaurant was only about 1/3 full and the hostess seated is right next to a family with a crying baby. We asked for another table and were moved. Our cheese fondue appetizer was excellent. The main courses, salmon and tenderloin were... More

As a GF dinner I was quite happy when they fulfilled by "just some veggies" inside of bread before my meal. As well they were generous about the size. Main entree of duck was exceptional.

I visited this restaurant while catching up with a friend over a late dinner and we were very impressed by how nice the restaurant was inside. It has a very upscale, modern, and moody feel which we loved! We couldn't believe we were only in Waterloo. Our waiter was perfection; an absolute professional. He had a sense of humour, answered...
