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

Our first night in our new home town and we checked out Gustav's. Other than being out of the blackberry cider I had been drooling over since checking out this place online, everything was phenomenal. Great portion size, the original fondue was terrific, I enjoyed my biergoulash, my husband had the two sausage platter and was in heaven. My picky... More

Service is great and the food excellent. The fondue is to die for. Have been there a number of times, with friends and without, and the staff is always accommodating and very helpful and friendly. The main room is very open and the atmosphere cheery. The last time we were there we were seated in a smaller side room with... More

We went out for dinner and drinks to Gustav's. While it did not measure up to the original Reinlander in Portland, we had a great time, had good drinks, and ate good food. The ambiance was good, the service was fine and the food was great. We liked the drink selection as well. The fondue is incredible and a must... More
