We ate here with a toddler and a newborn and has a good experience. The duck and sauerbraten were excellent. The cheese fondue was not a traditional cheese fondue; more like a cheese sauce which was disappointing. The desserts were good. Amazing selection of beers. The servers were excellent.

The food and beer is good and different so for that it’s worth trying, HOWEVER, the service is not good. Although the staff is friendly they never bring water or anything requested quickly. Often times we are abandoned with no means of requesting anything additional. The food always arrives cold.

I don't think I'll order the Hungarian Jaeger Veal again, but I've had other dishes that were superb. MY two companions also enjoyed their meals.

Gustav’s always a great dining experience. While we often dine at the locations in Oregon this was our first time in the Vancouver location. And we were very happy find this also was wonderful.

After reserving a table through OpenTable, we were seated immediately upon arrival. Our server was attentive and courteous. The quality and quantity of the food was amazing as usual. We enjoy coming out for special occassions. We'll be back again!

Jesse, our server was great! Other staff weren’t as helpful as we had to ask for water three times and a plate for our toddler over and over.

Food and beer Jesse suggested was awesome and we appreciated his service and recommendations very much.

Try one of the feasts and a beer sampler! Yum!

Fabulous wooden interior with ambiant retro German touches and soft lighting. Good food and drinks and prices. Did the one in Vancouver WA in a strip mall so maybe that's why the exterior is so strip mall boring looking instead of German? But the exterior needs to be upgraded to look like the interior. The first one I ate in was the original and that exterior is better and German authenic looking.

Overpriced food that is not good. The mashed potatoes were instant, on a 20.00 meal. The so called 2 chicken breast meal was 1 breast butterflied open. For the price of the foood we expected a lot better. Wish we would have gone to Red Robin

The food was good and we enjoyed our meal. The thing that was unpleasant is that we were trying to visit with friends that we hadn't seen in quite a while and the waitress was very intrusive, checking on us way to frequently. They didn't need table, place half empty.

We had a wonderful Father's Day dinner and we were able to bring a store bought cake that they kept in their refrigerator and served for us after our dinner. We were a little bummed that happy hour which is served all day on Sunday's is not offered on any holiday weekend but dinner was still delicious as it always.

We have been to Gustov's twice now and have enjoyed the experience. The beer selection is fun with flights you design yourself, and fun cocktails too. The German food selection is very good, lots of authentic choices. We have taken friends who also really enjoyed the food. The atmosphere is casual, family friendly dining. Friendly service from the time we stepped in the door, at the table and holding the door for us as we excited with a friendly have a nice rest of your evening. The food really is good and it is difficult to make up my mind what I will try each time. Okay, I absolutely love the Hungarian Chicken Jager, absolutely wonderful over spatzle. I can't bring myself to order anything else. One of our party ordered the sausage selection, picking which 3 sausages he would like from the broad selection. Another of our party had the sauerbraten, fork tender with a delicious sauce. This is going to be one of our go-to places.

I normally like Gustav’s but I would not recommend their Mother’s Day brunch. The food selection was minimal and didn’t seem to offer anything hat was more kid focused. Also there was only 1 non Pork option. In this day in age with people having a variety of dietary constraints having a limited menu made it difficult for all in my party to find enough to eat. Also the service wasn’t very good. The food ran out regularly and was slow to be refilled. For the price they charged I would have hoped for a much better experience.

My friends and I very much enjoyed Gustav's. We were celebrating my son's birthday (although we did not mention that -- so many restaurants do an embarassing birthday event whether customers want it or not), and everyone was encouraged to order exactly what they wanted. Everyone praised the food, and the server was very attentive about topping up drinks or bringing us anything else we might need. We went on a Wednesday evening, and there was not a crowd, so noise was not an issue. We had a convival evening, and Gustav's did everything right.

Disappointing for Easter brunch. We were hoping for better German style food. Some dishes were good but most were average or below. Not a good value for the fixed price. Our group was "stuffed" into a small but adequate booth. Given we had a disabled person, it was hard to get in/out of. The other option were tables of 4 with chairs of questionable strength. This was our first experience at this restaurant, and we will not likely return. Sorry.
