Typically, assuming you mean either engineered wood which is still available or conventional hardwood strip, about $500-800 give or take for the basic repair. If you need to get special recycled or not readily available flooring materials then probably about $3-10/SF more, and if the whole room needs to be refinished to make it all look the same then another $3-5/SF for sanding and refinishing the entire room floor area.

This assumes the subfloor was not damaged or warped, so assumes no work needed there other than removing nails and touch sanding to remove nail hole popouts and splintering.

One thing to consider - if this is a major part of the kitchen floor, might be cheaper to just replace the whole thing, so be sure to let them give that as a bid option to give as an alternative - pretty much always far cheaper (per SF) to tear out and install new than to repair (excepting refinishing or simple popouts), so consider that option, especially if you want to consider a flooring material that is not so susceptible to water damage, as wood is not a good choice for kitchen or bath use.
