Food was excellent! Great atmosphere! Staff was even better. We we’re late for our reservation so we had to wait a little while for a table, which I completely understand because it was Saturday night & they gave up our table. The hostess & manager were really nice & got us a table as soon as they could. The manager even gave us a free appetizer, which he didn’t have to do because it was our fault for being late. Overall great experience! I’ve been here a few times now and it never disappoints.

WE were celebrating a birthday and they made it a very special night. The service and food, as always, was fantastic. The waiter was very friendly and helpful for two of our group that were newbies. The great German food and beer always area a highlight. Amazing place!!

What a shame. We loved our food but that was about the only thing. Our waitress was terrible. She disappeared during our meal without getting us our drinks. I had to go and find her to ask her about them. By that time we were mostly done with our meal. We had to ask 2 different waiters 3 times to please help us stabilize our table. It was wobbly and every time we moved our water almost spilled. My husband eventually had to go up to the bar and ask for our ticket. The waitress was just standing up there visiting with the bartender. She had not been by to check on us in some time. She seemed to spend all of her time and energy focused on chatting with a group of drunk men at the table next to us. They were clearly over served, using the “f-word” every minute, loudly discussing several things that are not appropriate in a public setting. Several tables around us were also clearly disturbed by the behavior. Yet, she kept bringing them more booze. It’s a beautiful restaurant and the food was great. But, we had such a bad experience, we will never be back. What a shame.

I had been to this restaurant previously, and remember enjoying it, but their menu must have changed in the last year. I also previously sat on the bar side, so perhaps there is a different bar menu. I brought a visiting friend here, and the vibe on the restaurant side indoors was definitely more “date night”. Our waiter was fantastic, but the food was over priced for the quality. We both had meatless dishes, and they were pretty bland. I enjoyed my cocktail, but my friend was not a fan of hers. I don’t think that I will bring other visitors here in the future.

Amazing fare and musical accompaniment. Everything from atmosphere to lighting to the pristine cleanliness was welcoming and calming. Would love to sample a greater selection especially the sausages.

Absolutely everything was wonderful. The food was excellent, the service was great, the location was easy to get to and had plenty of parking. My only minor gripe was that it was just a little too dark in the dining area.

Fantastic! This was our second time to Grunauer and it was just as exceptional as the first. We had Anthony as our waiter both times and he is just amazing. He understands the menu and every aspect of the food and pairing. Makes for a delicious meal that is easy to decide upon.

The food is simply incredible. Flavors and combinations are amazing. Never a disappointing bite. Authentic German style food, or Austrian as they highlight.

Beer selection is great. So many beers to choose from with plenty of authentic Bavarian region.

Atmosphere is again an authentic experience. The location is easy to get to and tons of other places to explore if you desire.

Definitely a repeat place for us as long as it’s around!

I would recommed with a warning. My main dish was very good, my salad was not cold, my dessert was dissapointing. Service was fair to poor. Our waiter didn't seem confident with the menu, didn't check occasionally on our drinks.

Wife took me there for my retirement dinner. Food and setting was great. I thought it was a little on the pricey side but I had a good time. Staff was super curtious and knew their job. Would definitely recommend to a friend.

Out of all the restaurants in Kansas City this is where I chose to celebrate my birthday dinner if that tells you how much I like this restaurant! I lived in Germany as a child and this is the most authentic food I have had outside of the country. It is always consistently great, service is always great and very nice atmosphere. It's a little pricey but well worth it. I always get the Wiener Schnitzel and Apfel Strudel!

We had heard great things but were very disappointed by the food. We both had a goulash - one with veal and one with beef. Both were fatty and tough. The vegetables also didnt have much flavor. The asparagus appetizer was good though.

My wife and I went to Grünauer for our anniversary. We were shown to our table, and given a hand-written card congratulating us and giving us a free dessert. Our server was attentive but not overly so, and both our meals were excellent. We will be back again.

It was a busy Friday night but we were not pressured to leave, as we were there to visit with friends we rarely see. Gracious service, and excellent food as always, entrees served simultaneously even though each of the 5 of us had different entrees. . We had one of the quieter tables, but it was still a little too loud for us. We'll avoid Friday nights in the future, but look forward to dining there in quieter hours.
