Excellent Service, Great Links!

To starting my review, I'd give service 5 stars! I wish we took down the name of our server. We ordered the Original Fondue (which was ok). I'd recommend you try the other fondues. For our main course, we ordered the 3 links combo and advised the server to pick the combo links for us and that my... read more

I booked Gustav's private dining room recently for a family luncheon. At first I was disappointed that they would only do a buffet. After checking other restaurants, we decided to book Gustav's anyway. Everything worked out very well. Everyone loved the food and the service was excellent. We even had to order extra of one item which came out quickly.... More

We went early for dinner and was seated immediately. Menu was okay, but not very inspired. I am not from the area and did not know Gustav's was a chain. One look at the menu and I knew I was looking at a corporate menu. My feeling my reinforced by the atmosphere and wait staff. That said, the food was... More

Exceptionally good home style German food. We have eaten there on more than one occasion and have always found their food to be extremely good. Whenever we go through Portland we always stop and eat there.

I don't understand what the bad reviews are all about. We went on a Friday at 7pm. Waited in the bar for a table, and the bartender gave us beer samples to help us decide what to order. Then our name was called in about 10 minutes. We ordered the fondue with bread--very good! My husband had 2 kinds of... More

These folks truly don't care if they have customers. We waited nearly an hour in a nearly empty restaurant without being seated, while they were giving bar guests immediate seating. Finally gave up and left. Never have returned and tell anyone thinking of going there our experience.

This used to be a really great place to go for good German food, but not any more. Service was slow and spotty. Food tasted and looked like it had been cooked earlier and reheated, every thing was dry and over cooked. We will not be going back.
