The food was terrible! Not sure "where" they got all thier positive reviews!?!!
Had high expectations given your online reviews...
Service was very friendly but the food was lacking in flavor and presentation and was not hot....which is a bad thing for eggs benedict.
Great food, loved the place. Only issue was that the service was slow, the gap between apps and dinner was longer than expected. But overall we would return.
Brunch was super disappointing ...kids brunch was too fancy, server was awful, all food never came out at the same time, kids drinks were brought last, coffee wasn’t the first thing on the table, eggs Benedict was cold, omlette cold, server never asked how my husband wanted eggs, slow service overall - def won’t be back
What a great time! Our waitress was excellent. Thanks Cindy for making our day so special. Yummy food and great cocktails!
Joined by 5 friends for our mutual friends birthday, with a special request to sit outside, the service was quick, we had a wonderful, and knowable server. Very attentive, and took care of all us. The food came out at different time, which is kind of different. I would expect all the dishes for the main meal to be severed at the same time. Our birthday girl even received a piece of cake with a candle, which added a very special touch thank you we will be back.
Went on a whim to Bauer Kitchen after not having been there in a few years. It did not disappoint. Calamari starter followed by Hamburger main...very satisfying meal and service!
Very good! Loved the food very much! Very good! Loved the food very much! Very good! Loved the food very much!Very good! Loved the food very much!Very good! Loved the food very much!Very good! Loved the food very much! Boop.
Our server Stephanie was great! We had a good time!. Great food!!
Heard about duck wings as an app from family, totally awesome. Food and atmosphere were great. A little on the pricey side though.
Great spot for a business lunch. Specials were awesome, and ambiance is one of the best locations in the KW area.
It took a long time for us to get our food, was good when we got it, but overpriced. We decided it was noisier than we had expected.
I had mentioned in the reservation that it was a birthday, but nothing ever mentioned or entertsined
Excellent service. Excellent food. Amazing carrot cake!!
I really enjoy coming here. The food is never disappointing. It has a great ambiance - chic and welcoming - that really does add to the overall experience. You'll never go just once;)
Great meal as always at the Bauer Kitchen. Service was great, it just seemed a little slower than what we're used to having there.
Fantastic, as always!
Had a great Father's Day brunch. The FD special 'benedict' was delicious. Service great. A tad pricey. Atmosphere a tad noisy. But will return.
Father’s Day Brunch
I've always had a pleasant experience at Bauer Kitchen. The atmosphere is nice, the food is great and I would definitely recommend it to just about anyone.
My only note to this review is our service on This past Sunday was not to our normal expectations. Our server seemed to frequently forget the things we asked for: coffee multiple times, cream and sugar. As well our food for a table of 4 came out at 3 different times, with a good few minutes between each. So that wasn't the severs fault but perhaps a kitchen error. This wouldn't deter me from returning however perhaps more attention is needed to some of these small details.
However overall this is truly a unique spot for a great meal.
Menu was world-cuisine influenced, the flavours and combinations all fantastic! Could barely decide, great options. (Great dark alcohol menu too!). Comfortable atmosphere and elegant use of construction materials in the design. Thank you.
We have been to the Bauer Kitchen on several occasions, all for special occasions. Most recently we were there to celebrate my son's graduation from the University of Waterloo. Each time we have dined at the Bauer Kitchen the food has been excellent, the service fantastic and the atmosphere comfortable and welcoming.
I would highly recommend the Bauer Kitchen.
Looking forward to our next visit.
Good ambience and the food was pretty good too. Definitely need to sit outside! Too dark inside but the patio is wonderful this time of year. Service was incredibly friendly. Vegan dessert was awesome.
Food was excellent but service was slow.
One of guests arrived extremely early and the Bauer Kitchen staff was very accommodating and kind with our guest.
The food was great and wine selection vast.
The creme brule never disappoints!
Is was amazing
Went here for a casual birthday dinner and the place was pretty busy for a Wednesday night. Beautiful interior and good ambience. Me and my friend shared the calamari for an app and I ordered the steak frites for my main. Food was very good but overpriced, especially for a kitchener restaurant lol overall good experience!
Excellent! We were checked in on, however not rushed as we were catching up. Great selection of food. Food was excellent. Will return.
Very lovely meal and amazing service by Natalie! We all enjoyed.
One of the best restaurant in KW area. Excellent service, creative and delicious food. Music a little loud, but not too much annoying. Parking spaces sometimes hard to find...
The Bauer Kitchen is one of my favourite restaurants. I am never disappointed. The décor is warm and urban chic. The menu and wine list are both good. It is a lovely experience for dining!
Bauer Kitchen has never let us down. Everything was cooked to perfection. Highly recommend the four cheese dip, BK salad and BK burger but everything on the menu is good.
Great food, drinks and atmosphere. Service was a bit slow but it was a busy night.
Bauer kitchen is always great. Consistent. Good good good staff.
Went with a group for dinner before the symphony. Food was excellent, service was great. I would highly recommend.
Two business associates and I met for lunch and found the service and food was excellent. Two of us had the beet salad, one with chicken and one of us with the salmon. The third person had the steak and frites. Everyone was very pleased with their dish. Parking was somewhat challenging, but there IS underground parking that can be used. I have a large vehicle, so decided to park about a block away, which was fine. There was a wide selection of food and beverages to choose from to meet everyone's health needs. I would definitely recommend this restaurant.
Older lady was rude when we didn’t give her a huge tip and meanwhile I was planning to leave her more then the debited amount but decided not too after her rude comment and dirty looks she gave us after her tip.
I had lunch with my son and wife at Bauer's Kitchen on Saturday, May 19th. Food and service were excellent. Three meals and one beer including tip was $73CDN. I was happy with the entire experience.
All around an excellent experience
