Great selection of appetizers and main dishes as well as gluten-free options. The bar menu had something for everyone and the service was top notch! We loved the food and beverages. We also loved how they can open the restaurant up so you feel like you’re outside even though you’re inside.

Food and service were excellent as always....patio area and front of house bathroom were quite untidy and in need of attention for cleanliness....trash on floors, etc....G&D is one of our favorite spots on The Plaza, just please keep up on the tidiness.

Disappointing evening. Restaurant was not very busy and service lacked immensely. Menu prices significantly higher than last visit. Portions small and overall food quality was poor. Burnt end Mac & Cheese was disappointing.

Great ambience, staff, and facility. My brunch food was tasty, but had a few issues: the biscuits and gravy had barely any gravy and the biscuit was not warmed, and almost borderline stale. Other than those things, the experience was great, and we would visit this location (but probably not get the biscuits and gravy again).

Such a beautiful day that we wanted to enjoy dinner on the patio at Gram & Dun.
Service was great. Cocktails were great. Food was great except for the burnt end mac and cheese. Normally I LOVE it, but it was so liquidy (not cheesy liquid), that it was more like a soup. I've never seen it like this before so I'm not sure if it was just mine or if they've made a change to it. Unfortunately, it was difficult to eat even half of it. Everything else...fabulous!

We have only dined at Gram & Dun for brunch, but that has sold us on wanting to return to try its other menus. The variety of selections are great and the atmosphere is comfortable. The beignets that replaced the cinnamon role were incredible, and much lighter than what they replaced. Accompanying the great food is an ample selection of wines and cocktails, and the Mr. Pimms was a great brunch drink.

This is a regular spot for us when we visit Kansas City. Menu is creative and well-executed. Restaurant is casual-upscale with a relaxed vibe. Service is solid. For brunch, try the Texas biscuits & gravy or the chicken & waffles with hot sauce.

Busy night with high noise level.. Short staffed as most places these days. Hostess decided to give us a small table between high noise groups. Food was average. Lobster avocado was great. Seafood was dry but edible. Considering alternative places for next time

We were expecting a more tasty vibrant birthday celebration. Joseph our waiter was the best part…. amazing! The food was good, but didn’t match the service. We were a party of 5 shoved in a circular booth. Not what hoped for as far as a special evening goes.

Happy hour before a chiefs game is 🙌🏼
We got happy hour priced drinks and a big old dinner to fill us up before cheering on the chiefs. Not much of a crowd due to the early time and fast, friendly staff. Love the hanger steak!

Service was very attentive and professional. Sushi was surprisingly good and very interesting. Unfortunately, the filets we ordered were significantly overcooked and didn’t seem to be good cuts of meat. Very surprising for KC.

Reservation and obtaining a table was a bit wacky, but after waiting some time, after seeing others seated ahead of us that were walk ins, we were able to be seated.

Great food, server was awesome. Was a little warm, we were seated inside and they had the open air doors going, but it made for a fun atmosphere.
