We were so glad to have picked Gustavs German restaurant for their buffet. Everything was delicious. They had a great variety of dishes. Service was great. We will certainly be back to try their regular menu.

Loved the food. It was great and the service was superb. Spent a very long time visiting with friends and never felt like they wanted us to leave.

First, I have to say our waiter was very friendly and helpful. He knew his food and made good recommendations. I've had German food in pubs and in homes which which were filling, heavy and not alway a taste sensation. This food was more flavorful and a lighter fare for the American taste. I don't know if I'll go out... More

Large plates of typical german food are being served here, so go there for that. Nice drinks and wine list too. Had Meatballs which i highly recommend as the sauce really makes them shine. they are not balls as they were a bit flat, but that in no way impacted the tastiness of them. Had the sausage plate with a... More

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.
