To start off, waiter was told by the first 2 guests to expect 4 and we would be sharing an appetizer. He brought 2 plates and forks not 4, even though all 4 were now seated. Took 5+ minutes to get additional plates and forks. We made our entre selections and then he said, "Oh, we don't have any veal left"--no apology or anything gracious. (time was only 6:25pm) He should have told us when offering the menus. Overall, he was fairly attentive but did not remove empty plates or glasses until after he asked us "would we like a desert"? He removed only half and returned a few minutes later to pick up most of the rest. Also, when making the reservation, I noted that one patron had a birthday. When Brian arrived, the host said to him, "since it's your birthday, you get to chose your table". During the dinner, the waiter didn't acknowledge he had a birthday, let alone offer a complementary something. When the check was delivered I asked why no birthday wishes were offered, he said he wasn't told and it was the host's problem. So then he said 'happy birthday' and kind of chuckled. I don't know if the waiter was new at the job, totally overworked, or just didn't care. As for the food, we all ordered one version or another of chicken schnitzel (since they were 'out' of veal) and all were overcooked and dry. Not impressed with service or food at this Gustav's. It sure isn't anything like what I'm used to at Clackamas, let alone at the old Sandy Blvd location.

We had a reservation and waited maybe a minute or two before being seated. Not bad at all. Menus were brought and promptly and orders taken promptly. Food came to the table very quickly and was hot and tasty! Servers were very nice and just the right amount of attentiveness. We were seated nicely distanced from other diners. I felt very safe. And loved every bite of my Wiener schnitzel, roasted Brussels sprouts and potatoes! My daughter and my husband also enjoyed their meals. Topped it off with great apple strudel and ice cream and whipped cream. Yum!

Ambience and service was very good. Food also was good except for the potato pancakes. Waiter reported the kitchen said the sour taste was due to a preservative added to keep the pancakes fresh.

I have been there several times this month and this last time the food was missing the sauce, the german potatoes salad was just potatoes no taste and for what i pay i was totally disappointed. either you have a new cook or it was put together sloppy and fast. I paid for 2 both times , and wanted to impress them , that was not the case.

New menu and old favorites like sauerbraten are gone.fondue was excellent, but accompanying bread cubes were noticably stale. Great service, however. But customer restroom was closed! Had to use employee restroom which was a mess and very unsanitary. Overall experience was OK, but not up to previous standards.

Good German food for a chain restaurant. The menu is still limited still due to Covid but still good choices.

This is a not to miss restaurant with excellent German and American food. The staff is friendly and the wait staff can explain just about everything and give thoughtful recommendations. The food is reasonably priced and quite good. Portions are generous and often require a take-out box.

We have eaten at Gustav's many times so are familiar with the quality of their food and service. We both had pork schnitzel and it was pounded so thin and was so overcooked and dry that one would not know it was schnitzel. They were busy, but service was extremely poor and slow. We had requested to be seated in the dining room because dinner was for a birthday, however were seated in the bar. A very disappointing experience.

Took the fam for my sons birthday dinner
Sat on patio and had great dinner. Of course, had to start with fondue which did not disappoint. Schnitzels of 3 varieties were very good. Generous portions as well.
Very good family spot.

My only complaint was that they had no bier I wanted but it's not their fault that the supply chain is how it is. The food was excellent. Loved the fondue with sausages and bread. Our waiter was awesome and very helpful.

Everything was great, except the restaurant actually closed before our meal was even served. Shouldn’t allow reservations a half hour before scheduled closing time. Many people, myself included, expect restaurants to be open past 8pm - realizing hours have changed for many restaurants. That’s fine. I just didn’t like finishing up my cocktail and being told they closed a hour ago. Makes me feel like I’m lounging around in disregard for their hours. Not the case! Wouldn’t have booked with new hours in mind.

It's appears the menu is slimmed down since way back when I used to work there. That being said, the classics are still there and taste as good as they did 18 years ago when this location first opened and I started working there.

Saturday night crowd skews towards older folks eating early, at least on this long holiday weekend. Not much on the menu for vegetarians/vegans, but I lived in Bavaria for years and this is an issue there, too. I would love to see the addition of a Greek salad, which is also popular on Bavarian restaurant menus. Good food and friendly service from everyone front-of-house.

Made a reservation. Received multiple confirmations from OpenTable including the day before. This was for a business dinner with multiple people coming in from out of state, so this was an important gathering. Less than 15 minutes before the lunch meeting I get a call that Gustav's had changed their hours & wouldn't open for another 3 hours. I had to make a last minute change & call all people to the new location. We were not happy & not being familiar with the location it was difficult relocating. Gustav's was unapologetic.

Gustav's failed. They cancelled our reservation about 10 minutes before the scheduled time. Don't schedule anything Gustav's related through OpenTable. OpenTable doesn't offer a guaranteed reservation or any recourse when the restaurant cancels last minute.

Visited this place after a while as usual. Unfortunately, this restaurant as years pass by has become less and less German. I understand the need to cater to the place they are located. However, the menu has gotten a bit corporate and sort of awkward with things that are definitely not German (tacos in the menu?). The choices have become limited and no longer they carry specialty things such as rabbit for instance. It is understandable given the circumstances, but over time since 2011, this restaurant has evolved to be less and less German. The only one thing that has stayed consistent is the fondue! Sadly, I do not think there will be a next time. It is not worth the drive anymore.
