This meal was one of the best my husband and I have enjoyed. The food was amazing and the service was delightful. We'd come back to Vancouver just for a meal at Bauhaus.

Very good food with creative dishes, very fresh and unusual ingredients and interesting flavors. The own ambition to deserve a Michelin Star though was a little bit overambitious....we would have given a 4,5 or 4,7 but don’t have the option ...
The staff though was really inspiring. Good explanations for everything and most notably to illustrate the choices of the wine pairing (which we really recommend with the tasting menue) as we experienced again how wines fully change their character with the food. Thank for a splendid evening.

This was our third time here. This time we went for the tasting menu. It was exciting and delicious, beginning to end! Very happy with the food!

The service this time though lost steam about half way through. They stop clearing dishes regularly and stopped asking about our drink situation, which we found a bit odd as the service was amazing both times before. It might have bee an understaffing issue of something, but they were darting around quite a bit. Either way, the servers were wonderful and knowledgeable.

One more server on hand it would have been 5 stars all around. That said, this will definitely not be our last visit here!!!

We had the 6 course tasting menu. Everything was delicious, and we were full by the end of it.

However, it is more west coast/pacific northwest than german food.

I especially enjoyed the salmon, lamb and quail courses.

Came for a birthday dinner on a Friday night. The restaurant was not very crowded at roughly 8:00 pm, somewhat surprising given the crowd elsewhere in Gastown. The tasting menu was fantastic, with each dish bursting with flavor. Particularly memorable was the decadent lamb shank. While the food was excellent, the German heritage in the menu was hard to find outside the traditional Schnitzel. The cocktails were beautifully crafted and surprisingly inexpensive for the caliber of restaurant.

The restaurant felt very modern, almost like stepping into a Brooklyn loft, and the clientele mostly on the younger end. Towards the end of the meal (about 9:30), there were very few patrons remaining and the staff seemed eager to head out for the night. Altogether Bauhaus was a great restaurant in Vancouver, and certainly worth the stop.

On vacation for my birthday saw an ad for the restaurant and just had to go. Contemporary German and since I was born in Germany it was an obvious choice. The reservation was 9pm only we didn't know they stopped serving the tasting menu then. Travis was able to get the chef to let us order it since it was a birthday dinner. Much thanks to Travis and the wonderful chefs. Everything was so wonderful the food, the cocktails and the service provided. Travis even hailed a taxi for us.

If you havent been here you must go! The food was absolutely amazing and the service was outstanding.Everything we had was bursting with flavor. Hubby hates cauliflower and he loved the cauliflower soup. For main dishes we had the weiner schnitzel (outstanding and a very large portion) and the roast beef which melted in your mouth. We added on the spatzel (cheese pasta) and a salad. This was a lot of food for 2 people. Our server Luke went above and beyond to ensure our evening was perfect even when there was a small mishap. His humor and utmost sincerity in dealing with the situation made the night even more enjoyable. We can't wait to go back for the watermelon salad and wagyu starter!

Visited the Bauhaus Restaurant for my wife's birthday while in Vancouver for a weekend get away. Everything about the evening was a great experience from the greeting by the host, the friendly service, good cocktails and the wonderful dinner. I had the zwiebelrostbraten that was so tender and flavorful. My wife had the lamb duo. The owner, Uwe Boll, even stopped by to greet us and explain how each dish had been prepared. We ended the evening sharing a dessert and after dinner cocktail. I would highly recommend this to anyone living in or visiting Vancouver who wants to have a truly fine dining experience. I won't hesitate to be sure to experience this restaurant when I am in Vancouver again.

We celebrated my 70th birthday at Bauhaus a few days ago. It was our first visit and we came away impressed and satisfied on all counts. The setting is quietly elegant, the service very attentive, the noise level not at all obtrusive (a very big plus in our book), and — best of all — the food is excellent. Although we all opted for the ‘German comfort food’ dishes, we found them entirely authentic and very satiating. The next time we come, we’ll be more adventurous in our choices — although it will be hard to pass up the spaetzle (really, German poutine)!
My family had sprung a surprise by commissioning a ‘singing telegram’ delievered by a fellow in lederhosen and a feathered hat. It was hilarious and I very much enjoyed it. The restaurant staff were very accommodating and the other guests took it all in their stride.

Wow! Amazing food. The taste, presentation, textures and flavours were all on point.
We did the 6 course tasting with wine pairings and the timing was off during the entire meal. Although the servers were kind and friendly they just weren’t in sink:(
At one point we had to remind the waitresses about the wine. Food came and no wine was present. They kept refilling our glasses of sparkling water with flat water. Tables that came after got their food first.
It was our anniversary and no acknowledgement. 28 Years!!!!!
(Birthdays were acknowledged though...)
Service was slow and lacking!!! I ordered asparagus and they never came ???
Extremely long evening with no harmony...
Also, she never brought the desert menu:(. Clearly they were ready to close but we weren’t the reason for the lengthy meal:(

We had specified when booking on Opentable that the dinner was our anniversary dinner, however this may not have been communicated to the restaurant as it wasn’t acknowledged. Generally in fine dining establishments some recognition of a special occasion is made.
Service was generally very good and efficient however we found it at times to be a bit abrupt - with our waiter rushing through the wine explanation without telling us what the wine was called or where it was from. We had ordered the wine pairing with the tasting menu therefore would have liked to be told what the wine was, however we had to repeatedly stop the waiter and ask what the wine was.
The food was exceptional and overall we had a good time, yet did find the service not to be what we expected given the standard of the restaurant and similar fine dining restaurants.

One of the very very few spots in Vancouver that's actually worth the money. The flavor combinations and the techniques used are all impressive. You can taste everything on the plate in a perfect balance. Between the two of us we had the aged Parmesan, asparagus soup, the hen, the trout, and all were perfect. We had the white chocolate dessert and it was good, but not on the same level as the entree or main.
Overall, one of the very few restaurants in Vancouver that I would actually recommend with eyes closed.

Definitely a positive departure from other high end restaurants. Excellent and interesting combinations of flavors and ingredients. Ambience/music shifts as the evening progresses. We were there for 3 hours and didn’t feel rushed at all. Very European that way. Owner/chef greeted everyone through evening and answered questions/comments. Highly recommend for special date night or get together with special friends. Beautiful evening.

I went there several times before, but the most recent visit was like at least a year ago. It has changed a lot since then. I love their food more, but the staff is outnumbered, so everyone is super busy. I have to pour the wine myself. The food is absolutely heaven-like. I think their lamb is the best in town, and trust me I have tried almost all the fancy upscale restaurants in Vancouver.
