Delicious and authentic pasta dish of the day, very flavourful and perfectly prepared. Wine by the glass reasonably priced for a 9oz serving. (glass&a half) Warm, attentive service. Dessert to share platter a must - leave room! A little pricey - 60 each for pasta, a glass of wine and shared dessert before a tip.

If you want good ambiance for a date, good place. The food although is average and over priced and for the bankers that work in the area. Drinks are extremely over priced. No value for the $

We were showered with great service. The food was creative, well-presented. The chef even recreated Bauer Kitchen's legendary "Seafood Tower" for us. We could not have chosen a better spot to dine in Waterloo!

Hit it off well at the start with waitress, Becky B. Enjoyed a smoked ginger cocktail and the TBK salad. For an en-tree I ordered the baked parmesan polenta. It was set off perfectly with a red sauce and vegetables. Dessert followed with the chocolate nemesis. Fun grouping of chocolate treats. I really liked the Mexican hot chocolate. Was in... More

The Bauer Kitchen during Oktoberlicious was fantastic. They had a special menu with an Oktoberfest theme. It was a charcuterie of sausages and mustard, Schlatteplatte and for desert a cheese board of gouda, goat's cheese and blue cheese. It was great! If, you mention it's your birthday too, they might give you their nemesis flourless chocolate cake with chocolate sauce.... More

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
