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.

    Went here to celebrate port-KC Marathon and it was perfect. Really great food and wonderful service. The fire-lit patio is lovely and overall the restaurant is beautiful. In the Plaza so very lively atmosphere. The burnt ends mac and cheese was to die for.

    OpenTable Diner Since 2012
    Dined on 10/7/2014
    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.

    There were 5 of us. We were seated in an area behind the bar, kind of a "back room," where we felt like we were missing out on the fun out front. But we had a great time anyway. My Beefeater martini, which I ordered "very dry, not dirty" came back dirty. Such a simple drink but bartenders get it wrong at least half the time. They quickly replaced it with a perfectly mixed one. But, the food ! . . . From the appetizer to the dessert, the food was out of this world! We got 5 different entrees and they were all fantastic. I strongly recommened the Asian Pig Wings appetizer. I will definitely be going back.

    Our birthday party of five had an amazing dinner experience. The bartender was helpful, attentive and knowledgable about the variety of drinks our party enjoyed. Then our server delivered the same level of service as we peppered him with our questions regarding the menu. He was spot on with his recommendations. The food was amazing. Each of us ordered something different and we all loved every last bite so much that we could not bring ourselves to share with each other. We didn't think it could get any better until dessert arrived. It was hands down the best dessert we have had in KC this year. Everyone agreed that this is our new go to place.

    Went here for our 1st wedding anniversary since we were told it was more of a "special experience" place. The wine list was great, the restaurant was great, the food was just ok. Would recommend to a friend for something new and special, but we probably wont be coming back unless we come with more people.

It was a Sunday afternoon, service was prompt (great job Chris!!) on the ball, and the food was fabulous! Great job, as this is a great place... keep up the great work!

    Dined on 9/27/2014
    I really enjoy GD however the one thing that truly brings this dining experience to a low is the attitude of the hostesses and servers. I worked in the industry for 10 years and when not even one hostess can be bothered (there were 4) to acknowledge our arrival, it puts a sour feel to the dining experience. Lastly, my sister ordered a glass of champange and the server took it upon herself to pick a $17 glass... Doing things like this to raise the bill end up reflecting poorly on the restaurant and staff.

    My wife and I along with our daughter and son-in-law had dinner after the Art Fair. We were seated outdoors and the atmosphere was fantastic. Everything was delicious. I asked our waitperson to bring me a Sazerac cocktail. Best I've had including the ones I've had in New Orleans. My wife asked for a no alcohol cocktail and asked the waitperson to "make the call." Again a well made beverage.

    Tripadvisor had great reviews for Gram & Dun so my husband and I made a reservation and were very pleased. Our server, Sam, was attentive and helpful. We had French Onion Dumplings to start with - they were like a deconstructed onion soup and, although fried, were light and tasty. We then each had a Goat side salad which was delicious. My husband had the Pork belly entree with pretzel spaetzle - the pork was delicious but the spaetzle was just ok. I had the Scallops and cleaned my plate! We then shared the Cracked UP for dessert which was like a cookie wedge. It was rich but yummy - we were very glad we shared a piece. We left the restaurant full but had no regrets.

    The service was excellent but the food nothing great. Do not order the sausage appetizer. Pretty disgusting with the Marrow bone and mushy sausage. I had the hanger steak. Ok but not very flavorful. My friend had the scallops and it was just OK. he felt there was not enough to eat. Although this place seems to be the IN place to be and be seen, I don't think I will be going back. Also thought it was overpriced for what you got. My friend had 2 glasses of wine and I had 1 cozmo and the bill was over $100 before tip.

    Not the place to go for a romantic dinner. The open patio caused so much noise that my date got a headache. If they partitioned off the back half of the seating it would at least have one quiet area. The food was excellent but difficult to enjoy as people walking by my seat continued to bump into me. The night club bar emphasis took away from the dining experience. The bridal parties entrance and seating in the dining area did not help.
