Gram & Dun Ratings and Reviews
Our server from Kenya was wonderful and very happy. The food was below par. The scallops were chewy and very fishy tasting. The fish was nothing to write home about. Our friends ordered the Gnocchi and the Chicken and Waffles. The Gnocchi was so rich, she could not finish it.
We did like the specialty drink menu as well as the cozy ambiance.
I came here for Valentine's Day with my SO. Great atmosphere and great food. Some of the dishes are a bit pricey for what you get (the Burnt End Mac and Cheese, while delicious, was very light on the burnt ends and fairly expensive for a pasta dish), but overall we had an excellent dinner.
At the time of writing there are many gluten-free entree options for celiac patrons, but your dessert options will be limited to just ice cream. Given the wide array of glutenous desserts available, this was a little disappointing.
They sat us at the worst possible table in the restaurant. It was right next to the stand where they put back menus and the servers were ringing in orders and waiting for drinks from the bartender to bring out. This was where all the servers stood and gossiped about customers. We could hear every word. Super rude. But our server was great and our food was wonderful. Next time I would make them sit me somewhere else.
My girlfriend and I came to Kansas City for Valentines Day and decided to dine with Gram & Dun because I am a chef in the Midwest and read great things about the place. We were greeted with exceptional customer service at the door (we arrived about 40 minutes early). The host told us we were more than welcome to grab a drink at the bar and she would send us a text when she was ready to check us in. Excellent service from the bartender. Great selection of liquor and beverages. After about 15 minutes we were seated. Within a few minutes we were greeted with a warm welcome from our server Schuyler. He was very proper, laid back, and gave a great recommendation for our entree’s. My girlfriend had the Loaded Baked Potato Gnocchi and I had the Shrimp & Grits. The food was outstanding! We were in and out in under an hour. I will definitely be back.
Service was astounding. Everyone was friendly, from the hostess to the server to the manager. We had a side dish come out wrong and it was fixed promptly and we were checked on and apologized to a couple times over it. My boyfriend was given a free dessert with a candle as well as a card from the restaurant. The food was great and the atmosphere was classy. I would definitely recommend this restaurant to anyone looking to celebrate a special occasion or impress someone.
We've been to dozens of great restaurants in Kansas City but the experience we had at Gram & Dun was the best. We were celebrating both my birthday and Valentine's Day, our lovely waitress brought us flutes of champagne before our meal and dessert cakes on the house. Our meal consisted of their mussels, lamb, and chicken. Everything was cooked "just right" and served with class. The serving portions were smaller than I expected but the quality of the food itself and the flavor was more than enough to fill. We each ordered wine with our entree and were happy to receive very generous pours.
We will be back again, and we strongly recommend Gram & Dun for any couple seeking a romantic meal.
I had the duck 2 ways- the confit was average- skin was not crispy- but the meat was tasty and the accompanying vegs were good. My wife had the shrimp & grits which was excellent. Prices were fair. Server was outstanding- very pleasant and the right level of service- responsive, accomodating but not intrusive.
Overall, a disappointing night. Not too full,very cold. Service was good. The drinks were good. I liked my dishes pretty well, but the two fish dishes were pretty unpalatable for my guests. I think the menu needs a little updating or something. I’ll come back in warmer weather; I hope I’m not disappointed, again.
Gram & Dun is one of the better places to dine at the plaza. Their waiters and waitresses are some of the nicest I’ve ever had. We went for a two year anniversary dinner and the waitress even brought us champagne! Their food is to die for. I would recommend this restaurant to all types of party sizes. It can get a little expensive if you aren’t careful, but their food quality and service is amazing.
Gram & Dun was great! Good food, beautiful place, and the service from the door on was friendly, professional, helpful. The patio outside is one of the nicest - if not the best - ones on the Plaza. Extensive menu and wine and drink list! We thought though that the menu was a bit pricey for what you got. My husband got the Shrimp & Grits which was DELISH but it was a pretty small portion with not a lot of shrimp. Fabulous flavor though! The drinks were on the high side as well but there were some great craft cocktails and nice wines. Was hoping this place could be a great date night spot but it'll likely have to be a special occasion or happy hour spot instead.
Saturday brunch. Party of 7. We were seated right away with our Open Table reservations. (OT only let me book 5 but when they called to confirm, allowed me to change). Recommend the brunch punch. It sounded odd but the flavors blended perfectly. Everything everyone ordered from the bread basket to shrimp and grits to dessert was fantastic. Excellent wait staff. We had a misunderstanding with the manager as we were leaving and they quickly responded to my facebook review and very respectfully cleared it up. Treat yourself and visit Gram & Dun!!
What impressing me most about Gram and Dunn is the wait staff. Every time I visit, the wait staff is attentive without hovering. The noise level inside is a little high for me. I have trouble hearing. I hoping my kids make RSVP for Mother's day.
We went for Kansas City restaurant week. None of us had ever been before. The service was great, and our server very personable. We had a table right by the window and got to look out at the fire pits on the patio. Everyone had very good food, but there were a few surprises. The G&D salad had a pepper that was hotter than any usually found in a salad, and the squash entree was the size of tapas. The patio looked like it would be nice on a warm day. Overall it was a great experience.
