We arrived and were seated quickly, however very close to a couple of large groups. We ordered the sausage and cheese fondue and two drinks. The fondue came right out, but the drinks took a long time. We were through part of the fondue before they came. As for the fondue, the sausage was cold and the bread was a bit dried out. The noise got so loud we couldn't hear each other, so we asked to be moved, which eventually happened. The dinners we ordered were good, but aside from the main course our anniversary dinner was a bust. We will not be going back any time soon, if at all.

Unfortunately I was highly disappointed in the food here. Though they were very accommodating. We showed up an hour early with 1 less person than expected. They say us quickly. It was my stepdaughters 18th birthday and they have nothing available for birthdays. No dessert, no meal deal, nothing.
We had ordered and got out food roughly 20 to 25 minutes later. When the food arrived it was cold to the touch, which bothered me mostly because my meal was a rare tri tip.
For the 5 of us it was over 130 dollars for a menu item each and a soft drink each. No special mixed drinks or anything like that. We have better food and value at places like Red Robin's where it's 75 dollars or less for meals, drinks, cocktails, and they sing and give you a free meal and dessert for your birthday.
Also, this isn't the best place for children. No childrens menus nor items that younger kids are interested in eating.
In conclusion, our server was on top of our needs and she was very nice. Unfortunately the food was under par.

The food was wonderful and the service was outstanding. Our wait staff was genuine and friendly. My 13 year old granddaughter had been asking to try German food, so we made a reservation for my wife’s Birthday! She loved it! I was quite surprised that she loved sauerkraut, as she ate part of mine! Yes we will be back!

Arrived 15 minutes earlier than our 6:30 reservation and was told we needed to wait for a table and we would be seated closer to 6:30. When we finally were seated, there were 8 tables open in the area we were seated. No idea what the wait was all about.

We thoroughly enjoyed our time at Gustavs. The beers were very cold and delicious. We had the fondue with bread. We scooped up the fondue in record time. Thought about ordering more,but knew our meals were going to be large so we sadly decided not to reorder. The four of us all ordered something different and all enjoyed our choices of sausage variety, cabbage rolls, sauerbraten, and a pork schnitzel. Our waiters were excellent, attentive, polite and helpful in giving us direction in ordering our beers and meals.

Our server was fantastic! We flew in for the weekend and invited friends and family for dinner.....We had to change our reservation due to more friends joining us and they didn’t hesitate. Once seated our party increased a few more and without blinking they moved us to a larger table to accommodate the 15 of us. We’ve never felt more welcome at a restaurant and the food was fantastic to top it off! Thank you!

Took my dad here for Father’s day- Really good food. I lived in Germany so it’s always refreshing to find good German food. Not 100% authentic, but close enough. Definitely recommend.

We had a great time... Everyone loved their entrees and the beer was superb! We appreciated that we could stay as long as we wanted as we were revisiting a trip to Switzerland and Austria that we have taken recently. We had plenty of time to review memories and share the fun moments again. Thank you very much!

We enjoyed our dinner at Gustav's in Tigard. We were seated in a quieter area than our first which made for a more pleasurable evening. The food was well prepared, service welcoming and inviting. Having an advance reservation made is a practice we will use for our next visit.

I like this place and have been coming a long time. It doesn't have the ambiance of the old Rheinlander on NE Sandy, but few places did. I miss the strolling accordion players and the German songs. The food is as good as ever, although the new shiny and more complicated menus are not an improvement. As Portland becomes more and more "global" and PC, traditional German food may be on the way out, but I hope not.

I recommend the restaurant because you can't find German food in Tigard area. However, I've been to all the Gustav's in the area and the red cabbage is always a hit or miss and this time under cooked and lacked taste. The Veal Jagerschnitzel was great and very large portion. The Sauerbraten was a little dry but the taste was good. The staff is very attentive and shows great care as always!

We had lunch with a large group and were given a nice table in a quiet part of the restaurant (where we wouldn't bother anyone, which turned out to be great) and a dedicated server. Our server was amazing - kind, competent, and pleasant. The food was also really good - from the shared fondue to our various plates. No one had a bad thing to say.
Great place for lunch with friends.

The food choices were fantastic, the only thing that we all wished for was that there was the Fondue available. I believe the fondue is your signature item, and should have been available. The server was amazing, but I believe Pancakes and waffles should be added next year.

The food here is phenomenal. Gustav’s hasn’t disappointed any of us yet. The only reason I don’t give it a 5 star is the speed of service was rather slow and we weren’t waited on quiet as soon as we would have liked. Overall a great experience and a great Mother’s Day lunch was had!

If you like German food (and even if you just like good food anyway) - this was a great representation. Food was tasty, service was good. A nice, clean restaurant.
Wonderful schnitzel, Bavarian pretzels and wurst. Would gladly go again.

I LOVE this restaurant!! The food is outstanding and the service is wonderful. On busy nights, there can sometimes be a long wait. My son's birthday was on a Friday night and we used the opentable website to make 7:00 reservations. It was busy, but we walked right in.

Great beer selection, but food wasn’t spectacular. Don’t get me wrong, it’s not bad, but I am used to German food (my wife was born in Germany) that is better. Spaetzle was over cooked, red cabbage was pretty sour and Sauerbraten sauce wasn’t very good.
