My hubby and I stopped in for a HH before heading to Washington square . We went to the Gustavs in Beaverton. It took a hostess to flag down the waiter , it took the hostess to bring our wine , others were served before us ( they came in after us ) we had to ask for water refills... More

We have loved this place for years but have such a great variety of options in Vancouver that Gustav's has fallen off our "go-to" list. We decided to revive it and give it a try and see what is new. Much of what we love is on the menu. Everything is just what you expect from a German food place... More

It's thought to find an authentic German restaurant, so I was excited to find Gustav's a short walk from my hotel. Very large beer selection. Lots of traditional German food. I ate at bar, and server was great. Enjoyable meal.

My husband and I had appointments in SE Vancouver last week, and decided to try Gustav's for lunch. We were seated immediately at a nice (if perhaps a little tight?) booth by a window. The menu was surprisingly varied and exciting. I selected the chicken Caesar salad, and my husband chose the chicken kale salad. Both were outstanding! The ingredients... More

Gustav's used to be a go to for us in Vancouver. As of late,, if we really have a hankering for it we will go to the location in Clackamas. The food at Clackamas tends to be more consistently better. And the tables are more spacious. I don't know why they crowded the tables together in Vancouver the way they... More

Always a great meal if you are looking for hearty German food. Wait staff is nice and there isn't usually more than a 5-10 minute wait for a last minute dinner on the way home from our kids' sports practices.

We ate here pretty late in the evening and the place was almost empty, so I am not reviewing the atmosphere which could be fun, who knows. I am reviewing the food and as someone who grew up eating middle European dishes I found everything we ate to be extremely mediocre.

We like Gustav's because the food is consistently excellent, and the service doesn't fall down when they are busy. Cabbage rolls like grandma used to make, great salads, and the best selection of German beers around Vancouver. Happy hour has great hours including "late night" after 9:00PM, a smaller but ample menu, and it's restaurant wide on Sunday.

Hard not to order everything on the menu. You can't beat this for the real thing. I live in SCal but if I lived in the NW I would be here all the time! This is German home cooking at its best
