The food was soo good!! Flavourful, high quality and balanced. I had the duck confit and frites, it came with an arugula side salad and I tried the sticky toffee pudding for dessert. Our server was amazing, attentive and charismatic. Overall a great experience!

Chicken and waffles were delicious at first but once a few minutes passed the waffles got very saggy and the taste was also not as good. Perhaps because they were done before the eggs benedict was ready and they stayed under a heat lamp?

Our waiter was Cory and he was absolutely amazing, my mom and I really appreciated how friendly and easy he was to talk too. And, of course, the food was awesome. My steak was cooked perfectly and my moms pizza was delicious. Tables are spaced apart very well and our table felt very private. Cory made the experience that much better. I love having a waiter that is so easy going and has conversations with you. I love Bauer. Can’t wait to come back in a couple of weeks for brunch! The Benny is to die for, particularly the tea biscuits and housemade ketchup.

I ordered the Steak Frites. I found a hair in the meal but they immediately gave me another meal, complementary salad and removed it from the bill. The food tasted great.

Kelsey was our server. We were her first tables at Bauer kitchen. She was wonderful! Her timing was impeccable. The food was wonderful and we didn’t feel rushed at all. All things considering with covid I would recommend this restaurant 100% every time we visit it is consistent with server and food.
They did a wonderful job with covid protocols as well b

Our server was lovely and attentive, I didn't get her name but I felt very taken care of. The ambience outside on the patio was great, it was nice weather and as soon as it got a bit chilly the heaters were turned on which was very nice. The food was good value and good taste.
