STAGE 1 REOPENING - PATIO ONLY

Please understand that as outdoor dining space is limited, we are taking a conservative approach to the number of reservations available. This means we will have some space available for walk-in Guests. Please stop by if you’re in the area.

If your desired reservation time is unavailable, don’t hesitate to call us directly at 519-772-0790.

Reservation size is capped as per current regulations. Tables of up to 4 are permitted from different households, or up to 6 from the same household.

For those looking for indoor reservations, we are unable to do so until we have received approval for indoor dining. This is currently proposed in ‘Step 3’ of Ontario’s Reopening Plan, which we anticipate will be in late July or early August 2021. At this time we do not know what table size & capacity restrictions will be in place indoors.

Our team has been eagerly anticipating & preparing to serve you once again. When you join us, kick back, enjoy & please be kind.

My date and I were probably seated at the least atmospheric table outside so we didn't get to really enjoy the indoor or main patio experience. That being said, our waitress was incredibly attentive, funny, and helpful throughout the evening. Food was also on point and I would say the blue cheese burger was good value for money. Would love to return once I feel comfortable with dining indoors again.

The tuna toastada was not our favourite, the tuna should have either been diced like tartar or thinner. We just found it way too much on the plate. We LOVED the duck wings soo good, along with the french onion dip and truffle fries. This visit was only for drinks and apps, we will definitely return for dinner!

We enjoyed a quiet birthday mea on the patio yesterday. A red sangria each, along with a hamburger and shrimp and pea spaghettini . Both were very nice. Our amazing waitress deduced that it was our birthdays and offered us apple cheesecake for dessert. My friend wanted it to go, but it was brought out on a plate with the offer of a box . The waitress knew that my friend would not be able to resist trying it and she was right! Had coffees as well and it was a perfect end to our special meal!

The bauer kitchen used to be much better in the past. First they are heavily understaffed which causes a lot of delays, secondly, the food is not as tasty, even my kid didn’t like the “vegetable” soup which was merely some salsa with tiny cubes of vegetables.

As always, the food and drinks at Bauer were amazing. Typically the service is really good but this time it was ridiculously slow. Our dirty plates sat on the table for well over 40 minutes as we saw our server walk by repeatedly and ignore us. That being said, it was really really busy and I imagine all of the servers were scrambling a bit. It's not characteristic of the Bauer, just an off night.

Thanks for inviting me to comment on a stellar experience at the Bauer last night. My companion and I opted for an outdoor table which worked perfectly until the rain fell in torrents, the thunder began and the lightning forced us indoors. Before then however, as the skies darkened, our spectacular server positioned two umbrellas overhead so when the rain started, we were at least partially covered. When the lightning became cause for concern, as a safety precaution, your staff ushered us indoors and despite the fact that the restaurant was nearly booked to Covid limits, we were found a place in a cozy corner to dry off and enjoy a second glass of wine. We were treated wonderfully well by all staff (special thumbs up to our assigned server) and our meal - two Taaza bowls, one of them made with attention to gluten, dairy and egg allergies - was outstanding. Many, many thanks to everyone at the Bauer - we will be back!

I have been to the Bauer Kitchen before and must say this visit was my least favourite meal experience. The Brick Chicken dish lacked some pop! It was salty and just didn’t meet the relatively high expectations that I had for it. With that being said, my wife did enjoy her meal (seafood pasta dish). Our server was attentive and pleasant. The food was just a little bit of a miss for me.
