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.
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?
