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.

First time dining out since restrictions have been eased up a bit, and the Baur Kitchen was a great choice and experience! :)

Menu has a lot of different choices from more casual meals like the burgers to 8oz steak. Menu can be scanned and read from your phone or you can request a paper copy , while contact information is taken care of regarding covid-19 when you first arrive as you fill a form before you’re seated

The service was pretty fast which was really nice and sort of a nice surprise since we expected the amount of tables to add a longer wait, the patio was full and lively!!

Very friendly hostess’s and servers !

**if you’re planning to go in the evening or night (or even a colder day) you should definitely bring a warm sweater or even a jacket!!!!!! It can be a little windy where the patio is and the taller buildings around it don’t allow for much direct sun

Restaurant (food, service) is always great, and I highly recommend it! Unfortunately right now, people can only eat outside (covid restrictions) so it makes it harder to enjoy things when it's chilly and windy. Not their fault! Drinks and TBK are always a fantastic choice! 😀 I will be back again shortly.

Great as always, service was a bit slow but it was very busy and this was only the second day of reopening so we expected it. Part of our order was mixed up but it was taken care of promptly and our food was delicious regardless. The new cocktails are also wonderful (as always). Can't wait to spend many more days on the patio at Bauer Kitchen!

Great 1st day back from lockdowns. Great communication by staff. Food and service excellent. Staff moved quickly to bring umbrellas as light rain started (and stopped). Like they never missed a beat. Will be back

Service was good. Beer glass was dirty but the server changed it after it was addressed. Ordered calamari and frites as starter, batter was too thick. Other dishes were okay. There was not enough shade.

The Bauer Kitchen for dinner was excellent as always! I had the burger is fantastic, with tons of thin fries very tasty; and my wife had the Cavatelli pasta is her favorite and go to. They just opened up for up to 50 inside, was still spaced out well. Their service is always friendly and they go the extra mile everytime on top of their food being great and nice atmosphere. Highly recommend The Bauer Kitchen!!!

Limited menu now but can't wait to return when things really open up! What is available is prepared beautifully and very good!
It's my "go to" when I'm looking for fine dining at a reasonable price.

I was really impressed with the food and the hospitality. Went to celebrate two birthdays for this month and the server surprised us with vegan chocolate ganache cake! Neither of the birthdays were that day so it was super unexpected as not a lot of places will do that. It was so nice of her and tasted SO good!
