Initially I was very disappointed that Wildcraft Restaurant could not accommodate a table for two on a Tuesday evening. Our second choice was The Bauer Kitchen that was more than happy to accommodate us. We were both very pleased at this choice, as both of our meals were the best we had ever had here. The food was awesome, would... More

Great ambiance, excellent service, and fresh ingredients made for a very delightful team lunch. This is a restaurant that I would frequent regularly were I to live in the area. Would have loved to try some of their wines, but I had a long drive home after a long week of meetings and team building. Recommend for lunch or dinner!

Fantastic food, great ambiance, friendly and accommodating staff. Booked a reservation online indicating that one person in our party had a severe food allergy. Everyone on staff from the server to the kitchen staff were attentive to the allergy to the point of recommending choice options that would not incur potential cross-contamination. The manager assured us that the food for... More

We were married on a Friday morning and hosted an intimate lunch for our family and closest of friends in the private room. Bauer staff was extremely attentive and helpful even when we had more people then the room allowed. Every guest's request was met. Food as usual was great. Staff was very attentive to how special the party was... More

We didn't leave a drop on our plates! We both had the steak and we ordered the Charcuterie. Sooooo delicious. They ran out of the wine we ordered, but they picked another great one for us. The only thing was the place was super hot in the main restaurant area so we had to move and I'm glad we did.... More

Went with a big family group on a recommendation. Food was mediocre and prices were hight. Once we told staff we were on a time crunch they did become very accommodating. Didn't think there was much of a selection on the menu.

I decided to sit at the bar when there was a full house and I had the pleasure of having Kim the bartender serve me. She was knowledgeable of the drinks and the food menu and made the meanest cocktails. She was also very friendly and told me all about the things I could do in the area. The food... More

We've frequented The Bauer Kitchen twice in the past few weeks, and each time, the service is great and so is the food. The burgers are tasty and the fries are yummy. I've tried pasta, which was excellent, and my husband enjoyed his turkey sandwich, despite it being difficult to hold due to its huge size. The wine selection is... More

Been coming to these guys since we moved to waterloo. It's good food at a good price. We end up getting the chicken or fish most of the time and it's always done well. Servers are easy to talk to.
