Our meals were huge and delicious. Schnitzel. Two people could have shared one
Our only complaint was the wedge salad was small and it was $9.00.
Also needed more dressing and bacon.

I have eaten here many of times, before the pandemic, The food was always good. I brought someone new knowing I could always get a good meal. Everything was great except the food was flavorless. The the serving size of the Chicken Jager was huges, almost twice the size I have had before, look great, but no flavor, even the gravy was bland, the spätzle no flavor, and we had a serving of the potato pancakes. No flavor just like eating fried potatoes, no salt and very greasy. Everything need some salt, but far as a flavor everything tasted bland and salt less, as for salt as I know because of Covid they can't have shakers on the table. Waitress brought us each one "Little" packet of salt and pepper. Due to the Covid and all the regulation I would give it a try again, but do know my guest wouldn't.

I felt like I was in a closet. Took a long time to get seated even though not many people there. They don’t manage their seating well.

We waited 55 minutes to be served, and I had to leave before I could even eat my meal which took over an hour to even get ordered, completely unacceptable. They told us they were short staffed. That is no excuse for terrible service.

I love the food at Gustav's. Great chef! The menu is pared down due to Covid, but my favorites are thankfully still on the menu. I also appreciate the wide variety of beer selections. The ambiance is unique - it makes me feel like I'm in Europe, dining at a Swiss chalet. Overall, a great choice for lunch or dinner!

Gustav's is the next best thing to having dinner in Munich, Germany. It's the only place I know that serves beer from the authentic brewers in Germany. I loved it and we had a wonderful time.

I have just moved back to the PNW after working in Toronto for 12 years. But I well remember going to the Rhinelander on Sandy Blvd in Portland between 1985 and 2008, so I was delighted to be able to enjoy Horst Mager’s recipes again.

Little disappointed they are not offering a full menu as before. Was told the reason for that is anything that took extra prep. work was dropped as they are trying to stay open with less help.

We got there 45 minutes before closing. Very few people but the food was good and the beer was outstanding. We basically had the place to ourselves. Been here 4 or 5 times. Will return. The number of menu items is low but my favorite sausage trio was on the menu.

They didn’t have all of their regular menu items, so that was a little disappointing, but totally understandable (COVID interrupted their supply chain), but what we had was very good!

Only reason I did not give it a higher rating for food is that I was very disappointed with their quite limited current menu due to Covid-19. I love sauerbraten and it was not on the limited menu.

Gustav’s is the bee’s knee’s. Get a thyme lemon drop & you’ll be hooked forever. & the pretzel fondue with sausage!! The servers are always so nice & it’s a pleasant date night every time we go out.

We were disappointed. There was a limited menu, unlike the one on their website. There were no vegetarian options. There was only one item on the whole menu we could have, the French dip sandwich, which had very little beef, and was not worth the price. Service was good. We sat on the patio all by ourselves. There was some traffic noise.

First time back in a restaurant. Sat at outside table with another couple. People ate from the Happy Hour menu as well a the Dinner one. All entrees were great. I enjoyed the sausage fondue as well as their delicious potato pancake.

Drink prices for Happy Hour were very reasonably priced and tasty.
