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.

We went for my son's birthday. We were at Wildcraft last year and was thinking to try a different restaurant this year. The restaurant itself is nicely decorated. However, food was below my expectation. The two NY striploin were cooked as asked - Medium Rare. However, the meat itself was kind of hard. We should have ordered the rib eye.... More

I keep coming back from time to time hoping to like this restaurant, but have so far always been disappointed. Service was extremely slow (over 45 minutes to receive our lunch on a weekday) and the food very unremarkable. Better to save your appetite for other restaurants in the group, which provide consistent service and a more interesting menu.

Love the Bauer kitchen. Prices are reasonable for a higher end restaurant. Food is always prepared to perfection. I eat "well done" meat and this is the place that made me aware of the fact that even though I like my meat well done, it doesn't have to be shoe leather. They cook it perfectly so there's no pink but... More

Have been a few times including this past weekend. There are no healthy choices on the menu. At best is the salad which is loaded with granola and cheese. Ordered it with chicken and it came with what seemed like deli sliced chicken and unfortunately i ordered it with drsg on the side too late. at $16 it was not... More
