Austrian
Grünauer is a classic Viennese style Gasthaus with Central European influences of German, Hugarian, and international specialties. Nicholas Grünauer and sister Elisabeth opened Grünauer in May of 2010. Their father is from Austria and their cousin still runs their 3rd generation family restaurant in the Neubau region of Vienna. The menu offers simple, straight-forward cuisine highlighting some of the best specialties Central Europe has to offer. The WunderBar offers an array of wines, beer, and spirits unlike any other restaurant in Kansas City. The authentic biergarten outside is one of kind as well. There is no other place in the city to match the atmosphere of Grünauer. We pride ourselves on offering the best customer service and knowledge of our product. We want to offer a fine dining experience with a family feel-- so make a reservation today!

Every item we had was phenomenal, the Rubensalat, Raucherlachs, Kartner Schnitzel were all beautifully plated with the most thoughtful flavor profiles, all capped off with a side of the most delicious sauerkraut I've ever had. Will be back again soon.

I surprised my husband with this restaurant for our anniversary. He is a fan of anything German and likes good food. Meanwhile I am a food snob and obsessed with making every calorie worth it. This was a huge success. The food was amazing, the portions ample, the ambiance wonderful, and the service excellent. We will come back, possibly as soon as next week, which is the next time we'll be in KC.

We wanted to find a unique spot to have a nice anniversary dinner and this place fit the bill perfectly! We enjoyed sitting outside on the patio, and were pleasantly stuffed with German beer and schnitzel when we left! Can’t wait to come back.

Great place to eat for German food. Anthony provided us with excellent information concerning food and beverage service. Although we were early for our reservation, they were able to get us right in. Awesome ambiance.

This is a unique restaurant with great food and unique tasting opportunities. Make sure you review the menu because it's not just your traditional American fare--as the name of the restaurant suggests. We'd definitely recommend this restaurant.

we chose to sit outside that is why I rated "moderate" for noise level and that was only due to the occasional passing train

My siblings came together in KC for a family wedding. We ate at Grunauer’s on the recommendation of our cousin. Service was friendly and informative, food was tasty and plentiful. It was a little bit too dark for dining but everyone enjoyed themselves.

Grunauer? More like Greatnauer! Excellent patio, great wine selection, and the best kraut I've ever had in my life.

Our entrees arrived almost at the same time as our appetizer. Server never returned to check on us until all food was consumed and it was too late to order the glass of wine we were hoping to have with our entrees.

It’s a place we have frequented for the great bar service and was the first time in the dining room. I think we’ll head back to the bar!

It was an excellent place to have dinner and the selection of beer is really awesome. It reminded me of my time in Germany and having dinner with a great beer.

Food was ok - entree menu is pretty limited. Seemed like a lot of dishes don't come with any sides, so if you order a schnitzel, that's all you get. I likely won't go again just because of the lack of variety on the menu and the fact that the food was just ok.

Always an amazing experience. We arrived early for our reservation but were seated immediately. Staff was friendly. Food was delicious. We ordered the Bauernschmaus and Kärnter Schnitzel, a Hofbräu Dunkel and a red blend wine. Very pleased with everything!

A little rushed at end of meal. We were there 4:15. The food was great; we had a schnitzel and for my liking it would be better with a gravy of some sort to dip it in; like a good white gravy or brown gravy. The coating on the pork was a little dry by itself. Other than that the evening was very nice! Thanks
