Great appetizers such as the duck wings, fish tacos or a TBK salad for a lighter choice. Try the tasting board / platter good to share if you would like to taste a bit of everything. It changes weekly. Always love the chef's creative ideas. Good service. Their selection for both red and white wine by the glass is impressive.... More

This is a great restaurant for a business lunch ... there are great quiet corners away from the other tables that allow for quiet conversation. Service is exceptional with attentive and professional staff. The food is delicious with perfect portions ... served artfully. Décor is modern industrial ... very welcoming ... can be a little noisy because of the hard... More

Fancy eatery... Food is on the edge, some rustic, some rough, price a bit high if you're used to a fast food place, but definitely worth a try.

Very lovely atmosphere inside and outside. Service was very good. Great selection of wines, we even got to experience a wine from a winery we had never heard of from our favourite region. The cucumber dill soup was light and yummy. The duck wings were perfect, sticky, spicy but sweet and tender. Also enjoyed the charcuterie board.

Came here for a late lunch on a beautiful day, decided to take advantage of the patio and was not disappointed. Started with the mushroom truffle dip, highly recommend! It was served with both toasted focaccia and crisp "flat bread", followed with the turkey sandwich and fries, sandwich was great, little too much bread for my preference but otherwise nicely...

I've been here several times and mot business than pleasure although I've done that too. Most were lunches and a couple dinners. Really good selection of food, great selection of draft beer and good service add up to a nice place to go. It's not the most expensive place around but I would consider it upper end.

The Bauer Kitchen is an excellent venue for meetings over lunch or uncomplicated dinners with friends, colleagues or family. The service is consistently quick and friendly, and the food is always tasty. The menu doesn't change as often as at other similar establishments, but on the other hand the kitchen staff is very good at making accommodations for dietary restrictions... More

Stopped in here on the way home from a play in Toronto. Initially disappointed since the menu we viewed online was not the current menu. However, the server was extremely helpful and polite. Overall we enjoyed our food, Edie silly the duck wings, natchos and salmon

The Croque Madam is sensational! Nothing like the ones your grannies fixed you up at home this traditional favorite is reborn through the use of high quality ingredients. The gruyere adds excellent flavor, the biscuit is (I believe) made in house and it is all together quite filling. The Croque Monsieur is offered at lunch please do yourselves a favor,... More
