Excellent food and service was great. We had an early dinner and we were too full for desert however we took apple strudel to go which was delicious.

The quality and quantity of the meal were outstanding. We were greeted in a friendly, yet professional manner. We were seated very quickly and the meal was fantastic! Also, we really appreciated the number and variety of wine choices.

The menu didn’t include my preferred dining choice, but the head chef (Mathias) was excited when the server relayed my request to him. He made a zigeunerschnitzel from scratch for me. In addition, the vichyssoise was superb. I used to live in Vienna so I recognize “legit” Austrian food. Grunauer is LEGIT!!! Everything about our visit (food, ambience, and staff) was awesome. This was our first dining experience at Grunauer. They certainly earned our repeat business. Highly recommend.

Service was prompt and outstanding . Menu choices are incredibly varied and all four meals were very tasty. Only comment would be to improve the bread, Austrian bread is better than what was served .

Courtney, our server, did a great job! The food was excellent. It has been awhile since I have had the opportunity to have currywurst and authentic spatzle. The ambience was great and allowed for great conversation.

It's a one time visit for me. Service was great, salads were great, the mixed drink my husband got tasted like pickle juice and beet juice and the entree was not seasoned adequately. The building is really cool and the ambiance was great. Priced as expected for a date night with one drink each.

A wonderful restaurant on its own, but even better because it provides me a trip down memory lane of my time in Germany and Austria. I always go on my birthday. I go throughout the year, to be sure, but always on my birthday! I have never had a disappointing meal or less than wonderful wait staff! Do I recommend Grenaur's? Constantly! Emphatically!

This was not my first visit. The food and service have always been outstanding. Having spent five years in Germany and visiting Salzburg many times, the food is not a copy. It is original. I think I am going to try to eat my way through the entire menu. This is by far my favorite restaurant, and I do not hesitate to recommend it to anyone.

We recently went to Grunauer for a family birthday and our entire group had a great experience. My family lived in Germany and this is one the best German/Austrian meals we have had in America. The schnitzel and goulash were excellent. Plus the service and atmosphere are wonderful. We can’t wait to go back!

Both my date and I found the entire experience to be exceptional!! Neither of us has been so having such a remarkable experience has left a long-lasting impression! Top of the list, bar none, was our server Kayla. We connected with her the second she introduced herself and it just continued to get better through the evening. The Jaeger Schnitzel with veal was cooked to perfection and I can’t say enough about the ambiance. I felt as though I was back in Austria!
Sehr, sehr gut, meine freunden!! Vielen danke!!!

We are from New York State so we have a lot of different ethnic restaurants not far from us. The schintzel I had was hands down the best I ever ate!
The service was wonderful too.
If we were in the area longer we would have gone back for more!

We love this place. Comfy, neighborhood kind of place - we see lots of lawyers and movers/shakers, lots of older people, lots of date nighters, surprising number of families with younger children. Service is consistently outstanding. And the food is soooooo good. The classics are the best - the sausages and schnitzels in particular, and the desserts are head-spinning. No foofoo plating, just really great flavors.

Service was very good. Waitress kept dishes cleared and drinks refilled without asking. I thought the food was just average. We ordered one individual sausage as an appetizer which was good. It was served with sauerkraut that was very mild. One person ordered the Paprikahuhn and she thought it was very good. I ordered the jager schnitzel. The pork was not as tender as I was expecting and the spatzle was bland. I would eat there again and try other dishes.

Hadn't been to Grunauer for a while and glad we came back for dinner! Service and food were both very good and we had a nice evening. The beet salad remains one of my favorites and the traditional items are all worth a try. The portions are large so you may want to share and save room for dessert!

Our first time here. Great food, great service. I was hoping for just a little more variety on the menu, but it was great food. The service was outstanding with great recommendations from our waiter. Will definitely go back.

On our reservation (Open Table) we did request a table to the side in a quieter area as we were celebrating our anniversary. That was missed (and I didn’t ask), as we were seated in the very center of the restaurant. Dining here was very relaxed, good atmosphere. Well Done Grünauer.
