The Bauer Kitchen

A great place to eat with excellent service. We found it a bit challenging to find, but once you've found it you want to come back

Went a couple weeks ago for a dinner. Had the short rib gnocchi. Terrible flavour, couldn't even finish the meal. Also had the tacos which weren't good. Not worth the price. Definitely won't be going back.

We enjoyed the food at our first visit to the Bauer Kitchen last Friday except for one detail. We made a reservation but we were seated at a table that left much to be desired.

We recently went to the Bauer Kitchen for dinner to celebrate a birthday. The service was fast and friendly and in no time we were shown to our table. For dinner we had the sopressata & truffle fontina pizzas, a bauer butcher burger and the roasted salmon. All were very tasty and cooked to perfection. We had a great time... More
