Fresh modern take on classic German cuisine in a downtown environment. Service was great!
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!
Fantastic. Cucumber soup is favorite dish of our entire vacation
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.
Overall good service. The seafood dish was too salty and too “fishy” tasting . Wine selection was good.
Phenomenal experience from food, wine pairing, and service! Will be back again!
I work in Gastown and always walk by. I finally made a reservation and had such a great experience!
Will be bringing back friends and family here. My boyfriend and I love fine dining and unique dishes. Highly recommend!
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!
Absolutely wonderful. Best steak I've ever had. Also the best old fashioned ever!
One of party forgot her reading glasses and another the "take-home" but we were delighted when phoned on the booking mobile-number shortly after leaving the restaurant to ask if we were missing anything!
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.
Excellent all around. Our bartender Phoebe was wonderful! A great evening 👌
We were pleasantly surprise by the quality and the freshness of the food. The service was impecable. Our first time there but not the last.
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.
This has to be the best restaurant in Vancouver. Deserving of Michelin stars. Every time we are here, we are alway pleasant surprise by new menu items with fantastic wine pairing. It is alway a whimsical gastronomic adventure with each visit to Bauhaus.
Food was great .,for a high end restaurant we did not get the wine decanted and the food was very good but a bit too pricey compared to other similar restaurants .
Wonderful menue and professional staff. Would definitely come back when in town
It‘s quite pricey for what you get... The starter was really weird, but the main and desert were fine. But like I said - pretty overpriced.
Keep the fire burning ! The best experience we did while our vacation in the US and Canada this year
The food was absolutely delicious and the service was alright. However, the serving took so long (2.5 hours) and the portion size was definitely not worth the price. good food though.
The Bauhaus exceeded our expectations. We had a true dining experience of the highest caliber. Thanks to Chef Chris and his staff.
Lovely place for special occasions. We had a lovely host- very attentive and provided professional service. We had the 4 course meal and the chicken schnitzel to share. Food was of high standard. Love the sorbet!
Sorry to say we had a very uneven experience at Bauhaus. We went on a Sunday evening, so perhaps the kitchen was understaffed. It took a hour and a quarter for us to reach the second course of our four-course meal despite the fact that only a fraction of the tables were occupied. One soup was so highly spiced that we found it inedible. My cod entree was significantly oversalted. These missteps overshadowed the better aspects of the meal, which included the Quark ravioli, Wienerschnitzel, and spatzel. During our visit to Vancouver we dined at multiple highly rated restaurants. Bauhaus had the highest price tag, but ultimately provided the least satisfying food experience.
My wife and I shared the 6 course set menu and were ridiculously satisfied with the cuisine. The food was out standing, in particular the chilled cucumber soup. The waiter that we had was very nice, courteous, and provided excellent customer service. The wait staff was also very polite and were quick to act. We were also celebrating our 1 year anniversary and were pleasantly surprised by the amount of care and appreciation the restaurant had. They provided a hand written card to congratulate us, they gave us 2 desserts and a 2 glasses of champagne for us on the house. I have already recommended Bauhaus to many of our friends. I would highly recommend going there again.
Food and service was excellent. We had a very nice time.
Absolutely indulge in the wine pairing with your meal. It really does enhance the experience.
It was an anniversary celebration
The server was very attentive and good knowledge of food
Food was excellent and very tasty .
The menue was delighious. The food was fresh and food Style was very nice
Good food and service.
We had an early dinner at 5:30 . Service and food was very good. I thought good value .
Don’t know where to start except the food was poor. The service was poor and it was really noisy. I’ve have eaten all over the world and have been to 1 2 and 3 Michelin star places. This place came highly recommended and I was highly disappointed.
The food was very good. I had the Mackerel ceviche to start, and the only downside was that it only came with one crisp so at least half was eaten without any crunch. The main and dessert were both very tasty. My main complaint is that the service was EXTREMELY slow. I check the time when I was finally served my first drink and it was a full 30 minutes after I entered the restaurant. At no point in time did I ask for more time to decide either, it was just that slow. Not a good place to go for special occasions, I noted it was my birthday on the reservation but they didn't acknowledge it on any level, not even just the server saying Happy Birthday. My friend ordered a green salad, it didn't say what the dressing it came with was and it turned out to be a strong horseradish based dressing so she asked for another salad with different dressing and on the side; it came back with a new dressing but not on the side. There is no salt or pepper on the table nor do they come over and offer it to you. I would have liked pepper on my steak but no one came over to ask. Overall I would say go for the food but don't expect good service.
Bauhaus has been a favourite for a long time but recently underwent a head chef change and now the menu is all preset dining options and no a la carte. There are 4 preset options with the basic option being a starter, main course and desert - you are still able to choose which starter, and main you would like to order from the options provided. I would prefer being able to order a la carte and not bound in to a set menu and hope this is something that will change in the best future. Food quality was still spot on from previous but just find the set menus are to many courses for your everyday dinner.
