Steak
It all started in the late 1800’s.. a young Gustav Johann Garbe got on a boat from Bremen, Germany to New York, destined for the North West Territories of Canada. Gustav stood up and stood out, always with family, friends and community at the forefront of his mind. His drive, passion and core values have directed four generations of self made entrepreneurs to where we find ourselves today.

John Garbe, in the name of his great grandfather, has assembled a team of exceptional professionals. The menu has been carefully developed, relying on local farmers and community for unsurpassed cuisine. The service experience is firmly rooted in family and friends. This is Gustav.

Gustav's continues to provide high quality food in a comfortable setting with service excellence! They recently added a few new additions to their menu which is exciting for us locals! Keep up the good work and we look forward to seeing you again after this lockdown.

Food was delicious and cooked to perfection. Wait time was average. There were a lot os small children there so if you're looking for a quiet intimate dinner Gustav's isn't the place.

Every dish that our 6 person party had was tasty and plentiful. The tables are spaced appropriately apart and the noise level is low. Also, our waiter was fantastic. Will definitely eat here again when we are in Collingwood.

The atmosphere was quiet and very nice, and the service was great,
Unfortunately, all of the food arrived temped, and not hot, which was a little disappointing considering the restaurant was not overly busy.

Definitely a great spot to eat. My wife and I ate one night in the Dining Room and had tenderloins, escargot and "Yorkie Bites" (you have to try them!); a very good selection of wines too.
Our families of 10 ate one night in the Lounge and had those Yorkie Bites again - every bit as good. The young ones ate well, and the parents certainly did.
Great service and food, we would certainly return.
Prices were maybe a wee bit hight.

The place itself looks good, clean and comfortable. The service was good. The food is average. The stake was OK, when it comes to soup and seafood, I eat better. Also, the portions are not big, especially for the price. Choice of wine is decent, but nothing special.

What a fabulous night my husband and I had. We originally were sat between two loud tables, but the hostess noted this and came over and moved us to a quieter table. We were so grateful.
Server was so nice, excellent and attentive service. We were so impressed. Food was delicious, looked as good as it tasted. Incredible evening, wonderful ambience.

Our server was excellent - very helpful and pleasant. He recommended a very nice wine for us. Our starters came out quite quickly. The calamari and Caesar salad were excellent. Our main course seemed to take a long time. The roast beef was good but not was warm as I would have liked. Overall though it was a pleasant evening and we will definitely dine there again.

Great food and wine! Delicious and generous portions. Kudos to the chefs.

Despite advanced phone, conversation and written request on Open Table, they forgot to write Happy Birthday and put a candle on my husband’s dessert. Lost opportunity for our quiet celebration even though that was our reason to go to Gustav’s for a treat.
Also, they ran the credit card charge twice, then reversed one charge when I discovered it and called.

Was our 40th wedding anniversary dinner. Did not feel particularly special. No attempt made to ask if it was a special occasion. Food was good but hard to say it was worth the price paid. Resturant felt ordinary. No table cloths etc.

Ordered 2 surf and turfs and it took about 1 hour for the food to come out. The lobster tail was almost non existing. It was less than one bite full. The steak was not tender and hard to chew. My steak was also underdone when I asked for medium and we didn’t send it back to the kitchen cause we didn’t want to wait any longer. Would not come back.

Guatav’s checked all the boxes - courteous and professional service, a varied menu and tasty, well prepared food all delivered in a quiet setting at a very competitive price. We have eaten at Gustav’s several times and we’ve always had a very good dining experience. They must treat their staff well because the staff always treats their guests well. We will continue to patronize Gustav’s.

The service and ambience are always great. The only complaint is with the beef parpadelle. The dish itself tastes fantastic however, the quality of the beef was terrible. For $35 I would expect to be able to eat the beef. Wish they would do something about this as it really is a tasty dish!

Hi Bear! I wanted to let you know I took this feedback to our Management team and we have changed the beef stroganoff to a prime rib beef stroganoff! Yum!!!Thank you for bringing this to our attention!!!! We have also launched a new menu that can be found on our website! Cindy Crossley GM Gustav Chophouse & Bar
