An extensive ‘wine by the glass’ menu has been created by our sommelier to pair perfectly with each menu item.

Went for brunch, the chicken n waffles was delicious! A member of my party was ecstatic about the plant based menu options! Have to try the vanilla bean latte

Food was tasty, but could have been hotter.
It was busy as expected and as a result a wee bit noisy, so hard to hear all at the table. I realize this is beyond the control of the restaurant, but something to note for future. Server was awesome!

Food is excellent, service is fantastic. Its a wide open concept so it does get loud and hard to talk over the music.

Great location and overall pretty good. Not as nice as previous visits. Some food served already quite cold on plate. A little pricey for the quality on offer today.

Food was excellent but we were disappointed that they had run out of the desert listed on the special valentines menu. If one were running a special over 2 to 3 days one would think that there would be enough to still serve customers early in the dining evening.

Excellent service and excellent food! What more could you ask for?
Pretty ambience and they really make you feel taken care of. One of the people in our dinner party ordered a dish that wasn’t what she anticipated and the manager ensured that we were satisfied.

The service was great. For a busy night everything was quick and absolutely delicious! The only suggestion I can give was the music was loud and the choice of music could have been better.

I would recommend when you have large group to put people at the end of the tables. It was hard to chat and we don’t have each.
Food and service was excellent as always

Truly the best meal I have had in a long time and I have had some wonderful meals! I had the lamb and cauliflower entry and it was cooked to perfection. I highly recommend this restaurant.

I really loved this restaurant just based around the fact that it had such a great menu. Gluten free options and many plant based as well. All restaurants need to accommodate like this. Service was really top notch as well.

I will return.

Great plant-based options, especially for brunch. The service was very accommodating and friendly. They went out of my way to assure me that there wasn't any meat in my meal - a concern I had, before realizing my salad contained "facon" instead of bacon! I did receive the wrong order during my dining experience, but it wasn't a big deal (and was the same price as my actual order) and I enjoyed the meal nonetheless. All in all the food tasted great and I will definitely return.

A fantastic place! I ordered the cauliflower quiche and it was delicious. I heard from the people I went with their food was also delicious, so I do not think there are any bad choices here. The place has a really nice atmosphere and friendly staff. I would go here again!

I’ve been to Bauer’s a number of times and the food and service are great. Today was an except. We went only for drinks and they were not made well; very watered down.

Good food, has taste, presentation. Overall a great experience and the wait staff is very courteous and conscientious. But big appetites should have two orders...as the athletes at my table required larger servings.

The menu has many selections for the pallet. The food was great & the atmosphere was amazing. Our server Steph was amazing & made sure the kitchen had our order ready in time to enjoy our stay & also be able to get to Yuk Yuk's in time for the show. Thanks to Steph & the staff for a memorable experience.

A lovely dining experience. Food was great although the drinks were too pricy ($20 for 9oz of wine????) The service was good however the pace was a bit too slow. Enjoyed the experience but would not visit often.

It’s already a loud restaurant when busy the choice of music just made it worse. Perhaps choosing something that is still loud to muffle conversations but is more relaxing or classic. Music was distracting

Food was just ok. I had the Salmon. Although it was cooked perfect it was bland. I can’t speak for the others but I did notice we all cleared our plates. Service was very good and our waitress Becky took care of us.
