Located in an old renovated factory, this place has plenty of atmosphere. They make beautiful pizzas in a wood fired pizza oven. Ive had the rainbow trout special. Their cheese board is amazing. Save room for dessert! The bar is serious about booze! The wait staff are friendly and very attentive. I loved this place so much I went back... More

Ever since moving to Kitchener about a year ago and trying out various restaurants in the KW area (one of our favourite activities), we've heard excellent things about The Bauer Kitchen and put it on our to-do list. We finally got to try it out this past Mother's Day when our son and daughter-in-law took us there for dinner. They... More

Went for brunch on a Saturday morning. Nice, bright seating area. Great service. Had smoked salmon Eggs Benedict and coffee. Very tasty! Reasonable price. ( In fact, next day went to a diner and paid a couple bucks less...wish we had gone back to Bauer!) Be sure to pop over to Vencenzios next door for fantastic deli.

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
