    It was my wife's birthday, I mentioned it on the reservation along with requesting to sit outside. We arrived and though we asked for outside dining, we were told it was full and that we could sit inside and if we liked, it could be by the window. The restaurant was relatively empty! We sat by the window looking at the outside patio and noticed the outside was NOT full, there were multiple open/empty tables. I walked back to the hostess told her we requested outside and that we were going to sit at an empty table – which I pointed to. She said, oh, okay. You can take an open table and I'll bring your menu, etc there. Then the waiter showed up. He was not very attentive – came to the table 4 times. 1. To say hello 2. To take our order 3. To bring our drinks 4. To bring us the check We ordered the salmon and it was overcooked. Not good to overcook fish! We did not complain, just ate then left. I believe G&D is resting on their laurels since the location is good because the service and quality has dropped considerably in the 7 years we've been patronizing them.

    The food and service was excellent! The noise level was a bit high, as there were multiple times that either fire trucks or ambulances were going past. I set out on the patio, so not sure if the restaurant was near a hospital or fire department. All i all it was still great and I would definitely go back.

    Incredibly disappointing experience at Gram and Dun. Firstly, when we were seated, I asked if our party of four (including two children) could be seated in a booth. The hostess informed me that the booths were reserved for large parties of 5 or more. This was surprising, considering that the other parties seated in booths were comprised of 3 people, 2 people and 4 people. Additionally, the booth remained empty during our entire time at the restaurant. Additionally, it was my birthday, which I had noted on the reservation. The hostess mentioned it and said that the waiter was "great at birthdays", but there was zero mention of it from the server. I didn't even need anything special -- just an acknowledgement would have been nice. It would have even been nice to been shown a desert menu? Something? The food was meh, the experience was meh and I'm sad I spent my birthday brunch there. Incredibly disappointing.

    Gram & DunResponded on September 21, 2022Thank you for alerting us of this situation. I would very much like to hear more about your experience. Could you please email us your contact information at info@gramanddunkc.co m. Thanks so much, we look forward to hearing from you.

Our server was very helpful about what was on the menu, and the flavor profiles of any menu items we asked about. The food was insanely good!! There is so much quality and flavor in their food, and the portions are just right! Highly recommend!

    I take my family out to the plaza often for nice dinners, Capital Grill, McCormick, Coopers Hawk, etc. and decided to eat at Gram and Dun. Started off very slow with service, took 30mins before we ordered any apps, waitress never brought anything to the table, was always staff. We finished our apps before we even got a chance to order entrées. We finally got to eat our entrées 1 hour and 30mins after arrival. My kids drinks were empty, cause we were not checked on. I had to stop someone to get refills. To even order another drink was painful and I got an eye roll, she didn't think we saw that. Food was decently tasty which was the only thing keeping me from getting up. First time waitress asked how are we doing, we were done eating. I usually spend $450-600 for 2 kids, myself and wife when we go out, I like to let them experience and try foods. This case I did not. When my kids are polite and say thank you when waitress fills their water, and she just looks at them and walks away, I find that rude. I give 1 star cause service was some of the worst I've ever had.
