Have been there many times. Always have a geat meal and good set up for visiting with friends. Some places this large are very noisy. Somehow it doesn't seem to be issue here.

Service and servers quick and friendly ... a bit noisy but a fun place to meet and greet but not if you are looking for a place to cement the tryst you are planning. Food is great, not pretentious just own home tasty.

Yep, it's almost there. Great selection of food and very well prepared. Nice decor, very good service, BUT when I was there for lunch it was just too loud. They do really need to baffle the sound a bit and then it would be really great.

Food was so so considering the price. Met an old friend intending to catch up, unfortunately we couldn't hear ourselves think so just stayed for appetizers. Not a place for conversation or a quiet dinner.

Early Valentines I had the Teres Major and it was done just right, my wife had the fish and chips and loved it except for the french fry logs. Great wine selection. Service was good. I would recommend making reservations as we saw a lot of people turned away as the place was full.

I keep wanting to give The Bauer Kitchen a 5... I've been here about 20 times and can honestly say I've never had the same experience twice... The menu is diverse and plenty of options for practically any preference, but it's just inconsistent... One visit is incredible and the next is horrid... I'm not sure why, but I keep going... More

My husband and I enjoyed an excellent lunch at The Bauer Kitchen a few weeks ago. The food is always excellent with a gourmet twist to it. Great atmosphere - upscale refurbished historical factory - exposed brick walls etc. Service is great too!
