A word from Gram & Dun
Gram & Dun is an American gastropub with culinarily-driven fare, paying special attention to pairing food with libations. It's a place "for the people" where we can relax and enjoy the neighborhood vibe while we test theories of food, drink and the evolution of good times. People need a place that calls to them when they find the time to relax, shrug off the day, and savor a meal that's unique and extraordinary; a place where they feel they belong. Our local owners and staff bring a unique, modern environment to this ideal Plaza location where we have revived the best patio in town, making Gram & Dun an enticing landmark for locals and visitors alike. In addition, Gram & Dun honors the traditional by bringing revered dishes to the forefront and adding our own special touch, and welcomes seasonality by adjusting to the natural changes our tastes succumb to as the year progresses, all in an effort to provide the best to patrons. Gram & Dun: Kansas City's original gastropub.

    Excellent service from host, hostess and servers. We explained that we had tickets to the symphony at 8pm. They made sure our dinner (which was excellent - the server made great suggestions) was brought to us timely and notified the valet to bring our car as we were paying the bill so we did not have to wait in the cold.

    We went to the restaurant not quite sure what to expect. We had heard that the reviews on service were mixed. Our service was nothing less than outstanding. Our server was very knowledgeable about the food and drink menu. We were well taken care of and not rushed through our dinner in the least. Our food was also outstanding. Would highly recommend the chicken and waffles and the tater tot! Thank for the great experience, G&D. We'll definitely be back soon.

    This is the third time I've eaten here and the food and service have been excellent. My problem is that I have difficulties deciding what to order from the menu since everything sounds like a dish I'd like to try at least once. The duck fries are wonderful. If you're a fan of mushrooms, you've got to try The Local Mushroom sandwich. It is truly on one of a kind. Can't wait to have an excuse to go back!

    We met another couple for dinner on Friday night. Our reservation was for 6:45 and we were seated by 6:55. Our server was very friendly, professional and on top of our needs. The Asian Pig Wings are a favorite. The Chicken Roulade was beautifully plated, but a little "meh" - probably won't order that again. The Red Snapper appeared to be quite tasty (and not a single bite was left). The Burnt End Grilled Cheese is really popular, but we're not sure why. It's also a so-so dish.

  • Great date night; too loud

    Dined on 10/24/2014
    We chose to go here for a first date. The waiter was very pushy in driving us towards ordering things that we did not want, as well as frequently interrupting us during dinner. For such a classy place it was way too loud, we were practically lip reading all night trying to hear what each other were saying. Food was astronomical, though. Would recommend this place, but only if the noise level could be contained and the wait staff taught to be more discrete. Price was categorized as $$, but things were definitely in the mid to upper $$$ range. To top it all off, we were charged for another table's meal.

    Went for boyfriend bday dinner and were not disappointed. Our server, Jorge, was very attentive and knowledgeable about the menu. He made great recommendations based on how much my bf likes to eat! The only "negative": we ordered the croque monsuier fondue and it was very good... could have been spectacular, though, if the ham was a bit less salty. About $80 for two beers, appetizer, seafood entree, salad entree, and a dessert to split. I was impressed and so was my boyfriend!

    I specifically went to Gram and Dun to get the baked potato gnocchi but of course they were completely sold out and I had to pick another option. I chose the beef tenderloins and unfortunately, they were dry without much flavor. It seems as though they have a few specialty dishes that are spectacular but the rest of the menu is more of a filler. I must also note that you shouldn't come in later in the evening because they had run out of several main dishes, as well as, several desserts so my party was constantly having to change their orders and reorder items.
