Our go to place for Bavarian/Austrian food! We each had a different kind of schnitzel, and we each thought that ours was the best choice. You just can’t go wrong when eat here.

It’s was our first trip here. The staff made it amazing expanded a lot of the menu to us. We took our 4 kids with us so we had a lot of questions as they are so picky when it comes to eating. The food was absolutely amazing. Hands down would recommend to anyone looking to have a authentic meal. But the staff also made it worth the trip.

I was very excited to eat here and was disappointed with both the service and the food. Had to ask several times for someone to get our server so we could get drinks refilled. One of the orders was incorrect and the server almost tried to argue that we were wrong and that was what we had ordered. Overall a very disappointing experience and I will not be back and could not recommend eating here to others.

My wife is German and we like coming here for our anniversary. If you are coming on a special day it's best to get a reservation. The food is great and you won't leave hungry!

A truly wonderful venue with great food, amazing staff, and a true appreciation for dining. The bar is worth the visit alone, but you should ABSOLUTELY plan to stay for dinner. From the fried pork belly to the spinach salad, to the schnitzel and the strudel, it was an amazing meal.

We will be back again...and again, and again...

Me, my wife, daughter & son-in-law were there to celebrate an early Valentines Day. We had never been to Grünauer’s before. Everything exceeded our expectations.
My son-in-law has lived in Germany for a few years and was familiar with German/Austrian cuisine. His comment was that the food served by Grünauer’s was as authentic as you could get.
Very pleased with everything and will go back.

We tried Grünauer for something new and different, and it definitely was! We had two Käsekrainer sausages to start which were fantastic. I had the Jäger Schnitzel Vom Schwein, loved it. And my boyfriend had the Bauernschmaus, which was a lot of meat (obviously), but really flavorful. All in all, definitely will go back and we recommend to everyone!

Was a little disappointed that they didn't have Der Schmutzige that evening, my favorite cocktail of all time! Other than that, the food is very authentic and good and the service is really top-notch. The dining room is beautiful. We really enjoyed ourselves.

This is a go to spot in KC. The atmosphere of the old freight building is terrific. The service is always attentive and informative without being too present. The food is fantastic, you have to try the sausages as an ap along with your entrees. Every time we come here we leave satisfied and asking ourselves when are we coming back. If it was closer to our house we would be weekly customers.

We were quickly seated and were greeted by our server. We took five minutes to go through the menu and ordered.
The food was well prepared and well plated. The food was complemented by an excellent selection of beers and wines.
Overall, an amazing meal for my wife’s birthday.

I have been to Grünauer many times because I love German food and want this place to be good. I have been disappointed every time. The food is simply bland. The veal schnitzel was dry with no taste. My husband’s pork chop was served cold. I am not impressed with this German restaurant and will not be going back

Tried the cheese strudel by server recommendation. Will probably dream about it for years to come! Also, ordered just one dessert to share and the kitchen split and plated for two. Nice touch.

Food and service was excellent. Lucas was our server and he did an outstanding job. We had the Kaspressknödel appetizer, and Schweinebraten and a veal Schnitzel with Spätzle, followed by apple strudal and all of it was outstanding. My wife and I highly recommend this restaurant. Really enjoyed the wine and the Biedermeier cocktail.

A wonderful place to catch up with friends. Good food that took us back to our travels to Germany/Austria, and a noise level that allowed us to hear one another talk across the table. We are sold on Grunauer.

Grünauer is a favorite restaurant of mine and my family. The quality of their food is amazing and the staff is always welcoming, friendly and helpful. Though we only go to Grünauer for special occasions; each time is memorable and eventually leads us back!
