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.

I liked lunch better than dinner. Much quieter - dinner got really noisy. Food delicious. Pork and red cabbage. I’ll be back!

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.

It was outstanding! It was my first time dining there and it won’t be the last either. Everything was exceptional- from the reservation, service, quality and value. The portions are generous too; my wife and I shared an appetizer, salad and main course and we still had leftovers!

Enjoyed dinner outside in the lovely terrace. Weather was quite good for Kansas City in August!
We ordered wienerschnitzel and red cabbage along with a Steigel Lemon Radler.
All good...my only critique would be that the schnitzel was a little too thick.

We had dinner for 6 on a First Friday. The service was great and the food was superb. Nicholas recommended an excellent bottle of wine that we wouldn’t have tried on our own. Can’t wait to go back!

Awesome!!! Great service and SO MUCH delicious food!!!! One less star on noise level, but was nothing except design of high ceiling and wood everywhere that contributed to this. Wonderful experience. Can’t wait to enjoy it again.

Grunauer is easily one of KC's best restaurants. We love dining there for any occasion and no no occasion :) This particular visit was just to enjoy good food during the excellent weather we had mid-July. It was a day that was low in humidity and temperature which made outside dining a fantastic option. Grunauer has remodeled their outside patio area with new chairs and sun umbrellas which made our experience even better than we had imagined.

For food, we both ordered the schnitzel. Mine was the A la Grunauer which is a pork cutlet stuffed with creamed spinach. It typically comes with mashed potatoes. But I love their potato cucumber salad so much I always substitute it in - i can get mashed potatoes anywhere :) My husband had the classic port schnitzel (the dinner portion is huge) with mashed potatoes. And we both ate every bit. Even though we were stuffed, we let the waiter talk us into dessert and we did the apple streusel which was good, but I suspect it was from the night before because it was a bit chewy and gummy on the crust instead of crispy and flaky. Even though I would have preferred freshly made that day dessert, it was still quite tasty and we ate every bit.

Eat here. You won't be sad.

We started with the Jausenbrettl, which is an assortment of delicious meats, along with bread, mustard and classic cornichon pickles. One of my guests had the Bauernschmaus, the other had the braised beef. I had them alter the Bauernschmaus so that I could have two pork loins instead of the regular pork loin, Weiner and pork belly.

Every item was perfect, for everyone. The server was timely and very knowledgeable. We sat outside in the garden. Outside of a few pesky flies, the environment was quite wonderful.

Having traveled through Austria and Germany extensively, the food is very authentic. I’ve always been puzzled by Austrian cuisines doesn’t have as big of a following as French or Italian. It’s absolutely delicious and Grünauer does a terrific job bringing it to Kansas City. I highly recommend trying it!
