Made reservations got there and were seated promptly. Staff was very accommodating.5/10/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday DinnerI took my wife out for her birthday dinner. We have 9 month old twin girls at home, I work 2 full time jobs and she has the exhausting job of stay at home mother. We NEVER get to go out together unless its to run errands. We were very impressed with the entire experience. I have already recommended Gram & Dun to my co workers and friends. The next available evening we get, we are definitely spending the evening on the patio there. From the moment we showed up to us walking around the plaza for a night cap, we were not disappointed in our choice to spend one of the few evenings we get just for "us".5/7/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat SpotOur waiter was a character, in a good way. Very attentive and knowledgable about the menu. Recommended delicious choices. Loved everything. Next time I think I could even try a few app's and call it a meal (the Asian Pork Wings from the appetizer menu were huge! And so tasty).5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMRomantic Dinner for twoI enjoyed having dinner with my girlfriend. We had the Tomahawk Ribeye for two. We had creamed brussel sprouts and a tater tot as our side dishes. We each also had a house salad that was perfectly dressed. Everything was delicious and the service was wonderful.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and service,All the food we got was delicious. Very creative menu and very well executed. Great service. We will be going back.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMAMAZING FIRST DATEWent to Gram and Dun for dinner as part of a first date. Made my reservation 2 days early and when we got there we got to choose whether we wanted to eat inside or on outside. We chose outside. My date and the whole dinning experience were phenomenal! The environment, the food, and the service blew us both away. We will definitely be back to Gram and Dun for another date/anniversary in the future.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMService started off a littleService started off a little shaky, but quickly turned around and the delicious and unique food well made up for it! A must go place!4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMA Gem in the PlazaWith a unique menu, Gram & Dun is a find in the Plaza. The Loaded Baked Potato Gnocchi is amazing, and the others at my table enjoyed the Blackened Shrimp & Grits and Cioppino. The Gnocchi was perfect, full of flavor, and the crispy potato skin it came with was the perfect final addition. We're definitely coming back and will be recommending this Gram & Dun to friends!4/26/2013 12:00:00 AMFantastic spot! We come onceFantastic spot! We come once a year and it is always perfect!4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMgreat food but weak serviceI really enjoyed the food; however, the service for a higher end spot was not great. I ordered a half salad and a sandwich, and both arrived at the same time. The food runner was dumb-founded and asked me what he should do. I explained the sandwich would sit and get cold at the table since I was about to eat my salad. I then asked if his plan was to place it under a food lamp. He said, "I guess we could make another." He then luckily decided on his own that was a good idea. Also, my server was clearly upset that I was dining by myself (as I was traveling), made minimal appearances and was curt when she did come by. Overall I really enjoyed the outside dining and the food, but the service was not worthy of the price.4/25/2013 12:00:00 AMPleasantly surprised by thePleasantly surprised by the menu....so many selections sounded wonderful, it was hard to decide. I had the brussel sprout salad which was exceptionally good followed by the short rib grilled cheese -- really flavorful. My friend had the crispy pork shoulder with sweet tea reduction, also really tasty. Good service -- friendly and attentive but never pushy. Ambiance is nice. Wish it had been a nice day because the outdoor patio looks so inviting.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMNoisy but worth the vocal chords!Gram & Dun buzzes with energy and has a great vibe! The patio is THE place to be in beautiful weather.
Wish it weren't quite so clanky noisy. I always feel like I'm yelling at my dinner mates. But worth it, none the less. Cool place with awesome food and libations.4/23/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time surprise!First time to restaurant and we were very pleased. Service was great as well as the food. We will come back. Only drawback was noise level, hard to carry on a conversation.4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing experience, we willAmazing experience, we will definitely be back. Food was creative, unique and delicious. The service was outstanding. Loved the atmosphere. I wish it was warmer, because the patio looked amazing.4/19/2013 12:00:00 AMA wonderful experience!Gram & Dun is a gem in KC's dining crown! I hosted a client lunch there and got rave reviews from everyone! The Asian pork wings are a must. While we had lunch, the cocktail menu is fresh and creative.4/17/2013 12:00:00 AMExceptionalI had been to Gram & Dun a few times with friends, but hadn't eaten there. I have to say they have spectacular food. The catfish is excellent, and I know from my friends that the pork chop and asian pig wings are excellent. The restaurant is nicely decorated and has an upscale feel, but don't be worried about wearing jeans. The outdoor patio is the place to sit if the weather permits. Overall a great dining experience from start to finish.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI was in Kansas City on aI was in Kansas City on a work trip and went to Gram & Dun for dinner. Best meal I have had in five years. The mussels with the duck fat fries were to die for. Great drinks were served. Our server was Sam and he was very knowledgable on preparation of the dishes and was just fun.4/15/2013 12:00:00 AMwonderful Sunday BrunchSunday brunch was wonderful - Monkey Bread is a must!4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMThe waiter was so great itThe waiter was so great it really made for a nice experience. We had an infant in a stroller and they were extrememly accomodating. WIll definitely be back. Food was wonderful as always.4/14/2013 12:00:00 AMMy wife and I came with anotherMy wife and I came with another couple for dinner this past Saturday, April 13th. We had a 8 oclock at table 1. The service was great, the food was excellent, our appetizers were amazing. It was one of the best dining experiences we have had in a while where the entire experience was on par with each other and top notch. Our server was a lovely Argentinian woman, who I apologize for forgetting her name. She was delightful, very helpful and helped up pick out our meals. She knows her restaurant and the menu very well. I will ask for her again.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMThe sweet & salty French toastThe sweet & salty French toast was super. The potatoes - yummy. I could have eaten an entire meal just of the potatoes. The steak Hollandaise - ok, not great - English muffin get too soggy - not crisp enough. I know kale is the "in" thing these days, but not so sure it works on this combo.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMFood was delicious!! A happeningFood was delicious!! A happening spot. A bit loud and very crowded (after all, it was a Friday night). They weren't on schedule with reservations. Had to wait a good while, but we noticed a lot of people staying for extended periods after they were finished eating which probably threw everything off. Will probably go on a week night next time!4/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGram and Dun is a great placeGram and Dun is a great place for a variety of dining-related events. We had two friends and their 15-month old baby in tow. The staff was accommodating, the energetic noise level made "baby noises" a non-issue, and the food was terrific! The only challenge we have regularly had is in getting drinks very quickly - took around 10 minutes tonight, and that seems to be the norm. Otherwise a great experience.4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGram and Dun a MUST!We had a reservation for a group of 10 and the restaurant was extremely busy but we were seated immediately in a wonderful spot. Our server was amazing and the food was wonderful, too!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe were there on an "ify"We were there on an "ify" outdoor day. We were seated in the open doorway, perfect!! Great food, good service. We always love it!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMWe went with a large groupWe went with a large group (10 people) for dinner at a Bachelorette Party. We had a reservation and were seated quickly. The drinks menu is great-fun cocktails, lots of wine, and good beer. I recommend the Moscow Mule. The food menu wasn't huge, but had something for everyone. I had the Pressed Airline Chicken. The chicken was fine, but the sauce and grits were amazing! Definitely recommend it! We didn't sit outside, but the patio was huge and I would definitely go back and check it out!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMOne of the best meals I haveOne of the best meals I have ever had. Scallops are wonderful!4/6/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food - personalized attentionThis was our second time at Gram and Dun. The first time we had a large family group including a child that had extreme food allergies. When making the restaurant reservation, they informed us that they could provide a menu for the child that would avoid all the allergies listed. They did - and it was an excellent evening for everybody - especially the parents of the child who on this occasion, at least, did not have to pack up a meal for the child to bring along. We all had a wonderful time. On our second most recent visit, just my wife and myself. We were immediately seated, pleased with a waiter who was attentive but not intrusive, and food that was again outstanding. Unqualified recommendation - upscale price range.4/5/2013 12:00:00 AMDelightful Easter BrunchOur reservation for a busy, sunny Easter was ready on time. Service was excellent as were our dishes. Many folks were there but we were not rushed by attentive staff.
Only challenge was parking which is beyond the per view of the restaurant.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAWESOME AS ALWAYS!!!! GreatAWESOME AS ALWAYS!!!! Great Easter brunch and service was great. Love this restaurant and it is a gem in The Plaza and in KC.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMEveryone was very friendlyEveryone was very friendly ~ especially the people helping to clear the tables!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMBooked this reservation weeksBooked this reservation weeks ago. Had asked for a table and not a booth and by the window. We ended up at a table in the back. They tried to change us after we were seated. The host needs to understand --give the customer what they want. The restaurant was not have full.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazing BreakfastHad amazing Easter Brunch, definitely found our new Breakfast spot!!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWent for Easter Brunch. FoodWent for Easter Brunch. Food was beyond amazing and the service was even better. Cannot say enough positive things about our experience.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWe sat outside was beautiful,We sat outside was beautiful, food great --- a delightful evening!3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMPlaza Gem!!!I'm not one to usually take the time to wright a review. However, Gram & Dun proved to be outstanding time and time again. On our most recent visit, it took a little too long to be greeted and get drinks ordered but I have to think the server was just busy. That being the only issue as once he arrived at our table he was phenomenal. Everything we ordered was phenomenal. Far too often I find myself paying $12 for a cocktail I'm not sure has any vodka in it but not the case at Gram and Dun, the drinks we ordered (although basic - Vodka Tonics) were great. The patio, in my option, is the best in Kansas City and Kansas City has some incredible patios. Food, Service, Drinks, Ambiance - love it!3/29/2013 12:00:00 AMGram & Dun Continues to DelightOnce again, Gram & Dun did not disappoint. The food was outstanding as was our server, Britney. We were there for a late breakfast/early lunch. The breakfast corn dogs were tasty and I recommend trying some. I also had the Jackson salad (my favorite!) and the loaded bake potato gnocchi. AMAZING!! My friend had my old favorite--the short rib grilled cheese sandwich and she liked it as much as I did. As the menu changes to take advantage of seasonal offerings, I recommend putting Gram & Dun in your regular rotation, especially with spring patio weather coming (eventually). You'll be glad you did.3/23/2013 12:00:00 AMLate Night FindLast minute reservation needed for dinner and was so happy to find Gram & Dun still open. Late night menu was small, but the options were very tasty and filling. Server was friendly and although he didn't know the menu well, he offered great suggestions. Can't wait for warmer weather to eat outside.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMA must try (and come back again...)LOVE this restaurant! They never fail to impress from menu to service. They treat all their clients like royalty--the waitstaff is incredibly friendly.3/22/2013 12:00:00 AMOnce again, another outstandingOnce again, another outstanding visit. I've probably dined at Gram & Dun over 10 times now and it is consistently excellent. Food, wine and service are all top notch. I brought some business folks from out of town (Canada actually!) and they loved it as well. Only consideration for 1st timers is that weekends are packed and the noise level is very high. If that's not your thing, go on a weekday!3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMPerfection on every plate.Perfection on every plate. My chef friend told me not to miss this place when I was in town. She was correct.3/21/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fabulous experience.Absolutely fabulous experience.

Absolutely recommend to anyone and everyone looking for a little slice of KC!3/19/2013 12:00:00 AMLively atmosphereWhile it was a bit loud for our business dinner we enjoyed the food, the service we received was friendly and efficient and our food was quite good. I found the atmosphere very comfortable, warm and inviting but also energetic. It was really busy for a Monday night, very good to see.3/11/2013 12:00:00 AMOur entire experience wasOur entire experience was outstanding, from the food, the wine and the service. This was the best dining experience we've had in Kansas City in a long time.2/15/2013 12:00:00 AMI haven't been to this restaurantI haven't been to this restaurant for a while -- but they've stepped up their game from what I remember. Lunch was extremely busy, but it went smoothly. The chef even came out to say hello -- always a nice gesture.1/23/2013 12:00:00 AMBest food on PlazaThe food here is absolutely fabulous. Very unique but something for everyone and I have never had anything that is not outstanding. Great service and very chic atmosphere. Best restaurant on the plaza in my opionion. Fabulous brunch also.1/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat fun In a unique environment.Great fun In a unique environment. The restaurant modeled itself after Chicago greats like Publican and The Girl and the Goat. I've been to both. Well done, Gram and Dun.11/21/2012 12:00:00 AM
