I brought some friends to the Bauer Kitchen knowing that it had an upscale feel but a comfortable setting.The service wasn't too paced and we were sitting next to a beautiful wine wall and a nice open kitchen where you can see your food being prepared. The duck confit wings were on my mind so we shared some of the... More

The service was good, the wine list was awesome, nice atmosphere, however the food left me wanting something more. I have now been to the Bauer Kitchen twice and both times have left unsatisfied with my meal. Started with the arugula salad which was great, however, I ordered the pasta Mare which was over cooked, with too much sauce, barely... More

We live quite close to the Bauer Kitchen, and enjoy the ambiance there, but are regularly disappointed by the food, and today also the service. Stopped in for a casual breakfast this morning while out walking, and waited literally thirty minutes ( I timed it) from the time we ordered to when our plates arrived. Before getting our breakfast, my... More

I went to the Bauer Kitchen for a team lunch. When selecting it, someone said, "Great place, but it can be loud." Wow, they were spot-on with that assessment. It really astounds me that restaurants put so much effort into decor, trendy architecture, comfortable seating, mood lighting, excellent service, tasty food, and then forget one of the most important reasons...

This is an awesome restaurant & bar to have the best time, food and drinks are awesome. Service has always something special, the bartenders are magnificent, they make very good cocktails & drink, have a nice humor too. I've been here many times and for very each I leave planning to return once again, one of my favorites in Waterloo.

We quite often go to the Bauer Kitchen with a large group of people ~20. The orders have always been correct and timely. The quality is still there even though that is sometimes lost with big groups at other restaurants.

We recently dined at the Bauer Kitchen. Our only complaint with the restaurant is that we find it noisy but this time we specifically requested a table in a quiet part of the restaurant and we were seated in a corner booth which was perfect. We have been to The Bauer Kitchen many times and have always found the food... More

I had this dish once 1 year ago and it was so good I had to have it again. Braised short ribs with mushrooms and fries. Meat was juicy, flavourful and tender, covered in veal jus. horseradish gremolata. fresh cut fries were done just right (properly blanched first). For dessert, another repeat. chocolate nemesis: spiced hot chocolate fondue, flourless chocolate... More

Having eaten several times at the Charcoal Steak house we expected the same quality from the Bauer Kitchen. My partner ordered the NY Strip Loin medium rare. It arrived properly cooked, but somewhat tough and bland, accompanied by 4 sliced and roasted mini potatoes, and a couple of sliced pepper strips. Barely a meal for a man! And priced at... More
