We keep coming back for authentic Austrian cuisine in a casual and cool setting.
I had a business meeting and I needed a very quiet place so we could talk. Blaue Gans was perfect. The place was nearly empty. The food was good and the waiter attentive. Perfect for what I needed. Would clearly go back.
The food was fine and well-plated, the space and ambiance is nice, and the restaurant tends to not get too crowded (at least at lunchtime). But the real star of the show was our waiter! He was incredibly nice and helpful, and deserves 10 stars for being so hospitable to our group!
My wife & I spent the afternoon watching a World Cup soccer game at Blaue Gans and had a superb time. We were seated in an ideal and comfortable location by a gracious waiter and enjoyed excellent German beer and a tasty meal. The wait-staff worked hard and were friendly and efficient. Goal!
I love this place. Coming from an Austrian family, it’s nice to know there is a fun go to place for Austrian food. Too bad “The Danube” closed several years ago for higher end Austrian food. It’s a market that needs to be tapped.
Might as well close this place is so faded and not what it once was. Food quality is a poor shadow of what it once was, room and furnishings are ratty and beaten up, menu hasn’t changed in yeArs and Kitchen executed badly.
Excellent service and the foot was fantastic. Highly recommend the Pork Jagar Snitzel. Will definitely repeat! Great place if you’re looking for a spot to view the World Cup games.
The food rose and staff are top notch.
They are warm and friendly- great staff.
Great meal; the chef and staff understand food and know how to cook. Delightful evening. We had a marvelous time.
A little sister to Wallse, this is great for traditional Austrian food. Schnitzel, spaetzle, delicious pretzels - good palatschinken and strudel!
Excellent food and service.
Definetly a neighborhood treasure. Not too crowded, not too laud. Excellent alternative to home dining when one does feel like cooking.
Great food. Bratwurst Schnitzels pretzels and Riesling !
This is one of our favorite restaurants in the city. The food is always fantastic, can always get a nice table and it's never too loud.
Nice quiet spot for a quality lunch that is different. I'm so bored of Italian and French! Our server recommended the pretzel appetizer. That really was not all that special. The cabbage salad was tasty. The best part were our entrees- two different fish dishes- each with flavorful sauces and cooked to PERFECTION. Dessert was scrumptious.
I LOVED IT
Always a great spot for schnitzel! The sausages and pretzel appetizers were a great start to our meal. The staff is always attentive on every visit and they have a really nice selection of Austrian wines to go with the meal.
Delicious food. Amazing experience. Service was flawless
I like the food. The restaurant has seen better days- I like the decor very much- but the place is not well maintained. The restrooms were dirty and there was no hot water in the restroom I used. The waitress was ‘new’ and was not trained properly by the management. She didn’t know very much about the food or the beers. She forgot an item we ordered- but we didn’t bother with an additional request. She keep bumping into the back of my chair as she walked by- the restaurant was not crowded nor too cramped for this to happen.
Such a wonderful dinner! The food was fresh, delicious and authentic; what else from Kurt? ;)
Will defitnarlwy be coming back
Amazing food, Phenomenal service, and big beers... what more could you want?!?
Simple menu, authentic flavor, classic Austrian fare.
Love going to Blaue Gans but continue to be perplexed by the music choices on weekends. Would love to hear something a little chiller or more authentic to the place over current pop/dance.
We went there for Valentine's Day.
It was quiet, beautifully decorated for valentine's Day, food was great, service was great.
Not crowded, just enough people.
Definitely will go back and recommend this restaurant.
In a quick visit to New York, Blaue Gans was great way to spend an easy evening among friends, while dining on delicious and authentic Viennese comfort food. Service was friendly and attentive, the Austrian wines perfect! The table especially enjoyed the traditional schnitzels with cucumber/potato salad...and the delicate apple pastry for dessert. Fun, open & inviting interior.
The bratwurst was tasty. The chicken paprika schnitzel and lingonberry souffle were absolutely delicious. Try the Pear Basil Sipper! It's so refreshing!
The heat didn’t work and it ended up to be a very uncomfortable experience, made worse by the fact that it took a very long time for our dishes to arrive.
Really enjoyed our visit. Would suggest that music volume be lowered a little though.
I had the pork Wiener Schnitzel, cheese spätzle, and a draft Köstritzer.
Just the comfort food I was looking for. Service was friendly and attentive.
Price seemed a bit high, but I'm not a native of Manhattan.
Great place, nice lively atmosphere. Food is lovely, best burger I’ve had in a long time.
We loved it. From the host to the waitress to our first bite of the Viennese sausage and sour croute and trout crepes to our last bite of soufflé , we loved everything!
...been there many times before. Great simple traditional dishes.
The beef goulash and spaetzle was amazing. I am not certain why in an empty restaurant with three other filled tables the host would seat us next to the kitchen? Do they do this to all Open Table reservations? Also, train your wait staff on your wine list. "It's my favorite" does not tell patrons anything about wine.
Particularly good if you’d like some German/Austrian cooking. Casual friendly atmosphere
I live in tribeca and have been going to Blaue Gans now for sometime. I should go even more often as it is consistently excellent, with truly delicious Austrian food - the homemade soft pretzels alone are worth coming for! I frequently bring people from both out of town or uptown here and everyone is always terribly delighted. But also, the design of the restaurant is modern casual but full of art vibes thanks to the incredibly stunning array of vintage museum exhibit posters all around. the bar is gorgeous & proffers well crafted drinks and very good wines (you can have a good chardonnay but think about the Gruner Veltliner for example). All around, it just 'feels good' to be here. That's what makes this place excellent - for either everyday or a special occasion.
the sacher cake was extremely dry and not the dense one I had in Vienna
midcentury modern interior, seasonal german beers on draft, the best weinerschnitzle this side of the atlantic and lou reed posters on the wall—-what’s not to love?
German restaurants are far and few between. This one is not far from the WTC site and is a bit of a longer walk from Wall Street. But it is a beautiful place inside -- nicely designed with period wall posters and light and airy, warm and welcoming. You will see European standards her -- cabbage slaws, schnitzels. Great wine list. Very kind and attentive staff. You'll leave pleased. More people should come here of course and skip and fads and trends endemic in the NYC dining scene, which so often disappoint. This place won't.
Wonderful, authentic Schnitzel in a relaxed atmosphere. The potato cucumber salad is delicious!!
