Went for my birthday and there was nothing special. I was expecting something like candle on dessert or something that would make the dinner experience more special for the birthday family dinner. Tasting menu was served in odd time frame, had to starve between each dish. I was little sad because I chose one of my favourite restaurant in Vancouver. Maybe it was that day only? Not sure. Disappointed but will go back again, expecting better next time.

Fabulous dining and overall good value. It was a bit more rugged ambiance and louder than anticipated, but everything else was great.

We were here for a birthday celebration. They were sweet enough to prepare a birthday card with custom birthday wish from their team. Also, they provided a complimentary dessert drink with our dessert. The dishes were wonderful and well proportioned. Every thing was tasty. Would definitely come back again. Very thankful

Aufgrund der Bewertungen im Internet sollte der Besuch im Bauhaus der krönende Abschluss unserer Canadareise sein. Der Sevice war sehr freundlich und bemühte sich. Die Vorspeisen waren auch interssant und überraschten durch frische Aromen. Beim Hauptgericht, sowohl Fisch als auch Rindfleisch vermissten wir jegliche Kreativität und auch die Qualität war nicht so, wie wir es für ein Restaurant dieser Kategorie erwartet haben. Schade, aber wirklich nur ein mittleres OK.

The waiter forget parts of our order and then still tried to charge us for the fixed menu price... tried to not show us the bill prior to us paying so that we wouldn’t see. When we brought it up he acted as though we were difficult and cheap when actually we had bought several cocktails, two bottles of wine $100 each etc. When he sent over the manager the resolution was to charge us a la carte and therefore we would save $9 but the point was there was no resolution for the behaviour of trying to charge us without discussion on his error. It left a poor taste in my mouth when prior to that I thought I had found another restaurant to add to my rotation when fine dining.

Bauhaus offers a modern industrial look and modern cuisine. Good ambiance and located in vibrant Gastown. The owner checks in with each table to see if customers like the dinner experience.

Lovely place, our server Kevin was an absolute gentleman.

They were late with our drinks due to a kitchen mix-up, apologized profusely, and gave us extra drinks free of charge, not to mention a third on the house when I asked for a drink they no longer made.

Food was seriously good, and the servers all look and sound so proud to serve it. Such good vibes!

The owner went from table to table to ask how everyone was doing. Very nice man!

The staff were great, it’s unfortunate even with a reservation we felt 2nd to the attention paid to the influencers at the bar. Our server although good was stretched to thin so it was 3hrs when we finally were served our 3rd course.
The owner took time early in our meal to great us and offer an intro to his theme, this was nice.
Maybe just a one off less than stellar performance but we selected Bauhaus for the experience and certainly didn’t receive what we expected.

We took my parents for a 4 course tasting menu and it was such a memorable experience. The creativity that goes into the food is exceptional. Beautiful presentation, unique combinations of flavours and a beautiful room to savour the dishes.

We were walking earlier in the day and walked past this restaurant which was located near our Air BNB. We decided to try it for dinner that night as it looked like a cool place to have dinner. The menu was inventive, the service was very thoughtful without being obtrusive and the food delicious. I would definitely go back.

Ein würdiger Abschluss unseres Kanada Urlaubs.
Das Restaurant liegt zentral in Downtown im Bereich Gastown.
Da es an einem Montagabend war, waren nur wenige Tische besetzt.
Man nahm unsere Mäntel in Empfang. Der Service war während des ganzen Abends perfekt. Die Beschreibung der Weine die wir passend zum vier Gang Menü gewählt hatten, war sehr gut.
Das Essen war klasse. Auch das Timing, d.h. der Zeit Abstand zwischen den Gängen war sehr gut.
Sehr angenehm war auch, dass der Raum gut klimatisiert war, d.h. längst nicht so kalt, wie in anderen kanadischen Restaurants. Zum Schluss wurde uns auch angeboten, ein Taxi für den Heimweg zurufen.
Zusammenfassend kann man sagen, ein sehr schöner Abend in einem sehr schicken und sehr gutem Restaurant.

The Place to be in Vancouver, Gastown!

The best Wiener Schnitzel I ever had. Restaurant (modern, stylisch as well as cozy) and Service at its best.

A must for Lunch or Dinner!

Lovely restaurant and service and although the food was perfectly cooked the meat was overly salted and with a salty sauce was astronomically salty. The rated value would have been higher had the final salting not been executed.

The food was amazing. I thought it might be fancy for the sake of fancy, but it actually tasted good as well as looking amazing. It seemed the staff were overwhelmed, it would have been nice to have water jugs at the table if the staff are run off their feet. But they were friendly and overall, it was an amazing experience!

We were a bit disappointed with the food as the review I read was amazing. But in fact when we ate there, the food was just average and a bit too salty. For the price we paid, it was disappointing.

Our second time in as many months and the food was exceptional. First time to celebrate our anniversary and we appreciated the little extras from your team! Most recently we dined with our friends and all met or exceeded our expectations with the exception of the service of our meals which fell a little short of our expectations as the meals were served to the wrong person on at least three occasions. It appeared that the person working with our server was perhaps being trained? Nonetheless we had an enjoyable evening!

Fantastic meal from start to finish. We enjoyed every bite! The food and presentation were truly outstanding.

Unfortunately, the service was quite slow and we were often left waiting for our water and wine which was disappointing given the quality of the meal. Our server was charming and apologetic for the absence of support staff and we will give it another try.

I originally visited Bauhaus just after they opened, and had a far better experience. This time I visited with one of our premium clients, and it was very disappointing.

The service, from the moment we entered, was distant and mechanical. The menu choices are extremely limited. Flavours were less than we would expect for the stature and reputation. Bland comes to mind.

In general it was a very uninspiring evening. The odd thing is that my first visit was entirely opposite. And that was during opening jitters.

I would not return, and I can certainly recommend of a number of local dining establishments that are far superior in every respect.

We were there for a 4 course menu. Most of the food was great, with few misses, which were mostly failed combination of ingredients. One woke in the selection was just not up to par and would need at least 4 more years to develop. Overall a very good experience. Recommended. The final note: wiener schnitzel is not German, it is Austrian! But it was good ( although a little thick).

I have been there last year and this time with the new fixed menu I have got surprised. Now you can just choose from 3 to 5 courses menu with very limited options on each course. Although still the food is phenomenal!
Service was just OK and from my point of view such like this fine dinning restaurant you expect more than ordinary ones.

The Mackerel Ceviche with Passionfruit was possibly the single best dish I've ever eaten. Exquisite. Other dishes were also very good, though not of the same level as the ceviche. Restaurant is very modern and chic but lacks some ambience -- it certainly can't be compared to a cosy, romantic French restaurant. Food and service are excellent though.

Overall, we had a great experience at Bauhaus. I have experienced several fine dining restaurants in Vancouver and although the experience was good, I found the food to be 4/5 as opposed to the expected 5/5, especially for what the price is.

We did a 5 course tasting menu. Our favourite meals were the Tenderloin (perfect cook and so tasty) and the mackerel ceviche. I found the cucumber soup to be quite bland and the duck confit to not have as much flavor as I would've expected for a duck confit. The dessert was awesome as well. Overall, I'd definitely go back but would go to a few other places before returning here.
