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.

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!

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.

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.

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.

While meant to be a simple Austrian Café serving comfort food for lunch and dinner, the Chef owners fine dining experience appear in the attention to small details at the more casual Blaue Gans. The smoked trout crepes (in fact all the crepes) are wonderful.
This is a rock solid always reliable neighborhood joint that is family friendly. Keep up the good work.

Blau Gans is one of my favorite European restaurant in NY! Food is always great, service also and the team is very professional. My favorites from the menu are the pretzel, Cheese spatzle, Jagerschnitzel. Definitely a great spot in Tribeca!
