The reservation is mandatory if you don't want to be waiting. The host was great, service a bit slow. Place is cosy and a between a fancy and pub place. Great polenta, amazing pasta, not such an amazing salad.

We went for dinner and had a great time; good food and rich selection of drinks. The ambiance of the restaurant is nice, but I usually prefer a cozy, casual setting. Overall a great evening, mostly thanks to attentive staff.

It was more of a first meeting dinner so the place and the topics discussed were more memorable. I just rmemebr the pasta/penne which we consumed. Pork barbeque flakes was also good, although I do not recall the exact menu name.

Eaten at the Bauer Kitchen a number of times, and have never been disappointed with the meal. The menu offers some fun twists on many classic steak house dishes. The food has always been delicious, and well prepared. Same goes for the drinks and cocktails....More

Awesome resto. Duck Confit wings are amazing. Martini (gin of course) with shards of ice were the best.

We had eaten here before and expected something nice, but were very disappointed on this recent visit. Portions were small and there is no bread. When ordering Dubonnet I was asked if I wanted a double (!) and declined. Then what arrived appeared to be...More
