“Gustav's - Great Lunch, Excellent Service”
Reviewed 18 November 2013

Gustav's will provide you with some European themed cuisine for something different. Our group arrived for lunch and were easily seated. The server was excellent! He handled us with ease.... separate checks for 12 were no problem. We enjoyed such dishes and cabbage rolls, shepherd's pie and sandwiches with French onion soup. All was excellent. A great lunch destination. Skip the nearby fast food!

“Great Food even without the beer”
Reviewed 24 October 2013

I had the Rheinland Feast for a late lunch and the food was great. Authentic taste AND texture. I guess it could have been better with beer, but I had to work after so I didn't partake. If there was any downside at all, the lentil soup tasted greatr, butr was a little thinner than I expected. Will definitely eat there again!

“OK but not great”
Reviewed 14 October 2013

Think my title describes Gustavs German Pub, it's an OK restaurant but wouldn't rush back.
The menu is huge as is the size of the restaurant. Extremely popular and busy and took us 30 minutes to be given a table - they wouldn't take a booking from us when we phoned earlier.
Service - quick and efficient.
Food - Quality is good but portions could be better.
Drinks - Good beer selections but not so great wine list.
Summary - a bit average

“Very average German theme 5/10”
Reviewed 9 September 2013

We were happy to anticipate a yummy schnitzel meal...did not happen..very average, but to be fair, acceptable. We had extra $ caesar salad add ons...small, but tasted fairly OK.

The selection of German beers was good, and our server, Tim, was well versed, as he was with he meagre wine selection. Our server tried hard, but was hampered by the bartender who moved at a snail's pace..we thought it was so weird that our server was setting tables, while our drink orders sat at the bar waiting for the bartender's attention...he was clearly more interested in chatting to a client at the bar. Our meals were delivered by a near mute runner, and we were 80% finished before our server checked back to see how "our first few bites were".

I had the pleasure of hearing the manager berate a staff member about something she did wrong with a computer. Here is an idea...find a private place for this, you amateur.

This was a Sunday night...clearly overstaffed..(which did not speed up the service) it's just bad bad management to have idle or off shift staff hanging out at the bar, or in a service area well within earshot of guests.

Overall...we likely will not return...there is just nothing special about this place.

“1st timers”
Reviewed 22 August 2013 via mobile

Our first time coming here. Nice big open house German style restaurant. Tons of traditional German food. And the beer list is impressive too. Some very alcoholic beers. Definitely recommend for at least one visit.
