This was THE most amazing dinner experience I have ever had! Compliments to the chef for his modern architect of flavors. My taste buds were tickled with delight! We will be back! Much Love

Great food and wine pairing in a unique space. Attentive personable service with a few miscues you won’t expect for the setting or price. Otherwise a great spot

I actually really like Bauhaus. I have been a number of times, and think the food is outstanding. This is the second time I have dined there that the service has been really poor. I'm not sure if it was our server's first time working at Bauhuas, or perhaps as a server at all? He was nervous, tense, he mumbled, he couldn't understand what we were saying. I ordered al la carte, and not off the tasting menu, which seemed to cause him great confusion. I asked to see a wine list, and then he proceeded to ask me a number of questions regarding my taste in wine. I ordered a wine through him, but only because he wouldn't stop asking questions. A simple do you want my advice? would have been a better way to approach it. I really just wanted to look at the list. Then after building zero rapport with us whatsoever, at the end of the meal he rambled on about where he was from in Ontario. So really just poor ability to read his audience or serve them at a level befitting of a restaurant that has top honours, and not cheap prices. Maybe it would be better to go and sit at the bar?

Amazing house made limoncello- best since Italy! Meal was excellent, and serve and chef were very attentive and accommodating of my dairy restriction. It would be my go to favourite if I didn't live on the other side of the continent. Highly recommend the beef tartare and chateaubriand.

This was our first time at this restaurant and I was expecting a superior dining experience. However service was so slow, we had to wait really long time for our drinks. To top it off the bartender didn’t know how to make my drink which was a non-alcoholic beverage... We were sitting pretty close to the bar and saw several drink orders that came after ours go first. The solo bartender was frustrated looking up how to make my drink in a book... ahh maybe they should have more bartenders.

the poor waiter tried really hard, he was really nice explained things well but what’s he’s to do when the kitchen and bartender are so slow... our first of 4 course meal came so late, the waiter brought us a little snack from the kitchen on the house of course... drinks on the house of course... an old fashioned drink was served with smoke that was pretty cool... so to sum it up for 300 dollar meal... we got all our drinks for free... Nobody asked me if I wanted another drink, I guess because the bartender couldn’t keep up... water wasn’t topped up for an hour...

The waiter did apologize multiple times... the food was really good... but waiting awfully long for your drinks and food kind of kills your appetite.

Food was great except for the duck (main dish). The layer of fat on the duck meat was too big, and the vegetables were nicely arranged but very bland (especially the pumpkin).

The atmosphere was effected because the lights kept raising and lowering, which was a big distracting, but nonetheless it was all delightful!

Shared the six course tasting menu and wine pairings with my husband and loved every bite! Unfortunately, the timing was a little off and we waited quite awhile between courses. We sat down at 7:40 and didn’t finish until 11! Wine pairings were perfect and food was fantastic, service was good, just slow.

We were looking forward to the 5 course set menu but unfortunately were disappointed with all but two dishes. We tried pretty much the entire menu. The raw duck was extremely chewy and tough, and the roast beef sour and the texture of its bread dumpling unappetizing.

Although I noted on the reservation that this was for a "birthday celebration", there was no acknowledgement of this from the service staff, which would have been a nice touch for celebrating my mother's 75th birthday. Despite "limited" food choices, the food was magnificent and beautifully prepared. My "Maple Old Fashioned" cocktail was contained in a smoke-filled glass chamber, which added to the presentation. As an aside, owner Uwe Boll, came by our table to introduce himself and we had a delightful conversation.

Edible art: Beautiful showcase of local Canadian delicacies. I’m not normally one to order beef tartare, but I was sold on the mustard seed and truffles. I was not disappointed- and the generous truffles slices were delicious! The wine pairing was excellent as well.

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.

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!
