I loved to go there every Friday for a Wiener Schnitzel or Cordon Bleu, reminding me of home. Really nice place, also good beer! If you like Austrian/German food, go there!

Called 20' before arrival, very friendly and helpful staff. Great, relaxed place with great austrian food and beer and wine. For NYC there is huge space between the tables, service is not pushy at all and noise level is good. Great place, will be back!

I visited New York City recently and met with some old High School friends for a lunch get-together. One of my friends suggested we meet at Blaue Gans and it was a terrific choice. Not only was the food and service fantastic, but we never got the sense we were being rushed. A laid-back, low-key place to meet up with... More

We were looking for a high end/quality German restaurant and found exactly that at Blaue Gans. The food was phenomenal and our waiter, Justin, couldn't have been better! The goulash and Wiener schnitzel are authentic and top notch. Make sure you save room for desert, because the apple strudel is unbelievable!

Great menu takes one back to Vienna. The Wienerschnitzel is fabulous. Justin took very good care of us. Highly recommend.

I was stationed in Germany for 3 years a long time ago and this food at Blaue Gans in Tribeca was the best German food I think I've ever had. I ordered jaegerschnitzel and a hefeweizen then polished it off with an apfelstrudel. Service was great and food was absolutely perfect. I mean PERFECT.

We have thoroughly enjoyed our visits to Blaue Gans. It is certainly modest in scope and attitude but delivers excellent "traditional" German food at reasonable prices. They offer a great selection of German/Austrian wines and good beer on draft. We sat at the bar for a bit before dinner and our bartender was extremely congenial and helped us to compare... More

Had a reservation through open table. Showed up to a restaurant that was 1/3 full which was a very bad sign as every restaurant around it in the neighborhood was packed full! I should have known then. After we we're seated, the hostess came over and made us move because she claimed the table was reserved for an hour later.... More

Lovely pub, great choice of beers. Great bar food too! The place is very friendly and seemed to be frequented by locals . It isn't prentious nor "touristy" - instead it is a genuine and convivial spot.

I have been eating at this restaurant as a local for maybe 7 or 8 years and had never crossed my mind to do a review. I travel a lot and I know that how you are treated is almost as good as the food. and at Blaue Gans I have never had a bad meal nor a bad waiter.... More
