Consistent place for excellent dining experience. Shared app, salad and a pizza. Delicious!
Neighbourhood restaurant for us, go often. Mentioned it was our anniversary and were treated royally with a glass of Prosecco and Cindy gave us a decadent dessert to take home. Was lovely and often refer friends .
Went for brunch, nice patio, good food and good value. Very enjoyable Saturday morning.
My favourite restaurant to go to when I'm in Waterloo meeting clients.
Our server Sarah was the perfect amount of attentive, she even noticed my boyfriend getting a birthday gift and brought him dessert with a candle, she was great.
Food was excellent and the restaurant vibe was great, from those really dressed up to the more casual side every one seemed to blend.
Thanks for the great dinner on Sat!
The Bauer kitchen always exceeds my expectations each and every time we have a meal there. My husband ordered a medium rare steak and it came well done, within 5 mins of speaking to the waiter the manager brought another steak perfectly cooked with no fuss. The rest of our meal was perfect as expected. This will always be our place for a get together with friends and family... worth the drive from Cambridge!!!
The Bauer Kitchen is a consistently good dining experience, offering well-prepared food in an upscale modern atmosphere. Our party of four enjoyed a burger, pasta, salad with perfectly grilled salmon, and a goat cheese mushroom pizza. All were very good and beautifully presented. The Bauer Kitchen also specializes in craft cocktails and has a creative (if slightly pricey) wine list. I really enjoyed a local Niagara Chardonnay... Crisp, more French than American in style. Our fourth or fifth visit, and we'll go back again.
Everything was great especially the mushroom pizza, except it was my girlfriends birthday and we didn’t get a cake when I stated it was a special occasion.
Food was boring and tasteless. Unfortunate because service & location are nice.
Great food and even better service!!
The baked cheese app was awesome!!
Very good. We enjoyed the food and atmosphere. Server was awesome.
Very nice ambiance, overall menu very nice. We would return, but believe there was a breakdown in their service this particular evening. My wife's salmon dinner looked fantastic, but the files was two thirds very undercooked. We showed our server, and it's like they completely avoided the issue. No offer of anything, not even a discounted price for a $31 plate. If there was any supervision on staff, they definitely did not approach US or the issue.
Very nice place, but if you can't get a piece of salmon right, and I mean raw in the centre, and not offer anything in return, like I said , a bit of a breakdown in how they handle things, yikes! Certainly expected more from a location that looks like this, with above average prices. Too bad on this particular visit.
Management or Ownership presence definitely lacking.
We were annoyed and dissatisfied. We had guests and found the restaurant very noisy and worst of all we waited 45 minutes fervour meal and had to ask why there was such a delay. It was embarrassing.
menu was interesting, presntation was good quality of preparation was disappointing in the the lobster rissotto and Salmon dishes wait service was warm, friendly and efficient. overall not great value for money
We had an excellent meal and our server was also excellent. She was very personable and had a subtle but lovely sense of humour.
As always our meal at TBK was wonderful. We decided to eat on the patio the plants were very nice and contributed to the nice setting. My wife and i shared a salad and share the wood oven pizza. Cassidy our server was very nice and attentive. We engaged in light banter which added to the evening. The pizzas were delicious hot and cheesy. The wine went well with the meal. The cost was fair and the evening very pleasant.
Service incredibly slow. Forgot to put my meal order into the kitchen, but received a complimentary salad while waiting.
Dined here after seeing a show, when my father was in town. The food was excellent and the service was good, but our table was located by the kitchen and bathrooms even with a reservation (and half empty restaurant). Definitely detracted from our experience—although we’d still go again, we’d just request a better table.
Enjoyed our meal, but found the food a mixed bag. Enjoyed a couple of dishes a lot, and found a couple of others a bit bland. Same held for the desserts. Well chosen wine menu and lots of interesting looking beers (although didn't try). Very nice ambiance and good service.
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.
