The food was fabulous! Service was excellent.
Little cold due to front door being open to the entrance foyer.
Our server forgot about us/abandoned us. Wanted dessert and some more drinks but she went MIA for like 20 minutes or so. I guess it got busy but not a good excuse.
Beautiful place with amazing atmosphere. Food was fantastic!
I was surprised upon entering the restaurant that there seem to be no Covid protocols in place. I was not asked for a vaccine passport. The place was packed with people. The only ones wearing masks for the staff. Other than that there were large groups of people mingling about. As much as I liked the food in the service the noise levels were too high

Fantastic. Love the plant based menu. So delicious.
Exactly what the perfect Brunch should be ..... It was exceptional!! Service was friendly and on point. Will be back! I recommend to anyone looking for that perfect brunch spot. This is it!
Great atmosphere, outstanding service and really good food!
My homefries were kind of cold and mushy. Smoked salmon benedict was good.
Always a great experience at The Bauer Kitchen! Service (Natika) was outstanding and the food, delightful as usual! Our favourite restaurant in KW!
Thank you for this awesome feedback! We can not wait for you to join us again soon.
Enjoyed the restaurant. Food was okay. Sound was quite loud which made it hard for some of our party to hear the conversation. Service was outstanding.
Great plant based, healthy and hearty options

I was so happy to celebrate my birthday at the Bauer Kitchen with my partner! Our server was so wonderful and sweet and the gin cocktail with lemon and lavender she recommended was delicious!
Steve our server was exceptional
We enjoyed our drinks and meal!
3rd time coming here. I have to say the food has been disappointing. I ordered the smoked salmon, Benny. Came super cold. Maybe got 4 potatoes. The 2nd time I ordered the cali sandwich with fries. Came with the end scraps of fries. Disappointing again. Too bad because it's a great spot.
We had an absolutely fantastic experience at The Bauer Kitchen over the weekend. Our server was delightful, the service exceptional, and we felt extremely safe with their COVID protocols. We were even treated to complimentary champagne as we were celebrating our anniversary. Our food came out quickly, and it was delicious!! We will definitely be back.

Thank you for joining us this weekend. Happy to have this feedback.
It was disappointing. The short ribs tasted more like pot roast and I have never been served short ribs without including the bone.
After serving dessert we never saw the server again and had to ask another person for our bill.
Amazing service with incredible accommodations. Would definitely come back again
