We ate here several times when visiting our daughter studying at UW and every time we had a great meal. Good service with indoor and outdoor seating.

We've had lunch and dinner at the Bauer restaurant quite a few times and have never been disappointed. We have an American Cocker Spaniel and have her groomed every four weeks. The doggy beauty parlour is in the same block as the Bauer and if her appointment coincides with lunch time, we take the opportunity to have lunch and a... More

We welcomed warmly and taken to our table beside a window. Our server, Brittany, came promptly to tell us about the specials, take our drinks order, and answer our questions. She was friendly and efficient throughout our entire dinner. In our experience, it is rare to receive the level of service at a restauraunt that we received today. The food... More

This is a great spot for a Friday lunch. There is nothing like getting out of the office to have a great meal on a Friday. I've been to this restaurant for lunches, dinners and even just for a pint or two. I've always had great service and the food is excellent! I would highly recommend this place.

A good dining experience. We have tried most items on the menu and been reasonably satisfied. The times we were unhappy with our order, management made it right by replacing or resolving the issue to our satisfaction.

Service was excellent and the food was very good. We had the daily dinner specials. Two available to select from. The caesar salad was served at room temperature but I prefer it cold. Serving size is not generous so beware if you have a huge appetite. Appetizer, main entree came at the right time. Not too long or short. We... More

My husband and I had dinner recently at Bauer Kitchen because we love their burgers. I wanted to try something different than fries this time and ordered the gem salad as a side. Burgers were very good again, the salad, however, has still left me a little put off and frankly was gross. All it consisted of was lettuce heavily... More

I had made a reservation online for a special family dinner. In the reservation it asked for any requests....since we sat back by the washrooms/kitchen last visit, I detailed in the reservation a table by the window (which is a much nicer experience for dining with a family). We were greeted, told "our" table was still occupied, and took us... More

Hello Brenda, I would like to apologize again for not being able to deliver your table on time. The party ahead of you was to have been back at the funeral home a half hour prior to your arrival, but were enjoying themselves and decided to stay a bit longer. Under different circumstances, I would have asked them to move... More
