Came with a large group and everyone had a good meal. My husband , son and I all ordered German specialties and they were all very good. That being said- my son's sauerbraten was so good i had to stop myself from stealing his plate! The cabbage is really good- whatever you order, make sure you get some. I had... More

One of the few mid-level restaurants that actually takes reservations. That is a huge plus especially on a Friday night. A very comfortable place for families. Big spacious booths and attentive service. Good German fare is hard to find in the Portland metro area, but Gustav's is pretty darn consistent and not overpriced (except for the desserts and appetizers). Portion... More

My husband and I visited on a Saturday night. We were glad we had called a bit ahead and made a reservation. It was busy and people were waiting about 45 minutes for a table (this was around 6:00pm). The beer sampler was great and a good price. The food was great and wine was good too. Waiter was super... More

I don't understand the draw to Gustavus and I feel the quality has changed. We met friends Friday night. Our bad for not making reservationsystem if you even can, but at 8pm you wouldn't expect too long if a wait, yet we waited close to 40 min when we were told your being seated next. Is that a blanket term,... More

I dined here on Feb 2, 2017. I found this restaurant to be clean and very pleasant. The menu was well organized and easy to read. The food was delicious. Prices were moderate to high. Service was excellent. I would dine here again.

First time here. I shared the appetizer fondue with their cheese sauce, you could eat it like soup! I had their chicken Jaeger with spaetzle! Not since a small restaurant in Welches OR have I had such an amazing dinner. I would have loved dessert but no room.

We go to Gustav's for dinner about every three weeks. We always order the pesto fondue (awesome!), and then whatever we want for dinner. The staff has always been consistently competent, well trained, very friendly and helpful. Occasionally, we've had orders that weren't cooked perfectly, but never poorly done. This place is crazy busy on weekends, so reservations are recommended.... More

They accommodated 23 of us as a group and still managed to get everyone's order right and even our separate checks were right. Everyone enjoyed the fondue appetizers and some unique German dishes. Although I don't drink, most enjoyed the German beers. The pricing is very affordable.
