The Blue Danube is a quaint restaurant with a lot of charm. The dining area evokes feelings of being at the home of an older, immigrant relative: relaxed, unassuming, old world decor. The menu is wide and varied, but we came for authentic eastern European and we weren't disappointed. The Blue Danube appetizer sampler was a great way to try... More

This restaurant has been around a long time, and it is in an area of Trenton that is not quite as nice as it once was. Never mind, the atmosphere and food are exactly what the name implies. The menu is rich with central European specialties -- Polish and Hungarian especially, also some Romanian. It seems to be family run... More

I have dined many times in this restaurant and have never been disappointed. My favorite dish is the Gypsy Schnitzel, two pork cutlets served with spaetzle. This is a truly heavenly dish and I heartily recommend it. I recently tried their stuffed cabbage and was truly amazed at how it was like my grandmom's. The atmosphere is quaint and homey...a...

The best eastern European restaurant I have ever eaten at in the United States. they have great choices from the Hungarian goulash, chicken paprikash, pierogi, soups, and great light crepes for dessert. The Schnitzel was made to perfection, and the brussel sprouts in onion, bacon and butter are fabulous. how could you not like this place.

Blue Danube usdd to be a qusint Eastern European restaurant. Lots of colorful decor; old-world entrees like paprikash, wiener schnitzel, etc. we went there in the last year and were very disappointed in the flavorless food and bad service. If took forever to get served. We won't be bothering with it again. Too bad because it used to be charming.

Two people were running back and forth from the kitchen, Bar, Cash Register and waiting tables. The schnitzel was cold and the Spatzle came out 10 mins later, warm but not finished off, meaning not fried in butter after being boiled. The bread was way overdone.Others had cabbage dishes but at least one complained about meal being cold later. The... More

The Blue Danube Restaurant is in a working class area of Trenton. It is a converted house made into a restaurant. There are at least 12 tables, 2 of them round that hold 4-6 people. They also have "Specials" on Tues/Wed which are either Polish,German or Hungarian nites. These are in the price range of $10-$12 dollars. Other seafood meals... More

Been going there for years and have never had a bad meal. It reminds me of being in Europe and the food is Polish, German and Hungarian. The staff is friendly. I had this kind of food growing up and miss it because I don't make some of the things. Excellent. It's too bad the location is not in a... More
