We had another good dinner and a lovely evening at the Grünauer. Only one misstep, I ordered a latte and received a cup of coffee.

Amazing as always. We prefer lots of people around for the ambiance but in these times, not so much. Our server Jessica, was fantastic and funny. She made it an even better experience.

Nice venue in the freight house district. Good German selection of beers on tap and by the bottle.
Service timely and friendly.
A little pricey but entry portions are generous and take home boxes an option.
Food tasty with a nice presentation of entries.

The food was very good but unfortunately the service was not. The restaurant was virtually empty thanks to COVID and it being a Monday night. I would expect for as few tables as were present that our server would have been more attentive. Forgot things, took away our silverware and didn’t replace it without being asked

We love Grunauer and it was my sons fist time. The food was fabulous and the ambiance as well! I had the Hungarian gulach and my husband had the sausages and kraut. We also shared the beet salad which was phenomena and they did a nice job splitting it for us. My son had the beef medallions and two more friends had the Atlantic char and the schnitzel. Our server seemed a bit rattled but maybe just busy. My sons girlfriend is a vegetarian and she ordered the Vegetarian option which we had asked about. Then the wrong thing came out and she had to wait for quite a bit. I didn’t ask to be comped for it but perhaps he should have offered. Otherwise a great experience and we love it and will be back ! Always ya good time and amazing food.

One of the better Austrian-German Restaurants that I’ve been to since I’ve arrived to the States. It was nice and reminded me of the Vaterland!

Excellent food! We went for an early dinner so there was no crowd. We had the minestrone soup, Hungarian Goulash/egg noodles & stuffed Schnitzel/parsleyed potatoes. Great wait staff & beautiful setting.

Excellent Austrian-German food in a quality style. Ask for German "Bratkartoffeln"
to accompany Schnitzel (hard to get in US at high quality). The chiefs did it nearly to perfection. Server was very friendly too. They even had Chanterelle mushrooms from
Oregon for the sauce. One can sit even outside on a patio. Inside is large dining hall with nice ambiente. We were for late dinner there.

We were freezing to the point we almost left and said it’s not worth it. They were totally befuddled by the KC COVID restrictions. Zero seats at the bar, tables appropriately spaced but still restricted the number of patrons.

Food was great. I asked a waiter about a dish that I had seen served to a couple of surrounding tables and was unfamiliar with, and she told me what the dish was & asked if I would like to try it. I said sure, thinking that it would be a sample since we were already eating our lunch. A small dish of it was brought out & we did enjoy it, but did not finish it because we were already full from our lunches. When we received our check, it included a $9 charge for dish. Somewhat misleading on the part of the waitress. Still enjoyed our lunch there.

Server and manager made sure we felt comfortable with COVID precautions and let us move tables and assured us no one else would be near us. We saw them move an outdoor table out for more space as well. Very accommodating and I felt very safe there while celebrating our anniversary!

Grünauer is my favorite German/Bavarian restaurant in the United States. I usually order the jagerschnitzel but the menu has become very limited since the pandemic. They only offer jagerschnitzel on Monday’s at this present time. I decided to try some dishes during this visit, we ordered the Hungarian goulash, sausages, and the sauerbraten. All three dishes were amazing. Bread is no longer given as part of the meal, so it must be ordered as an appetizer. We ordered the breadbasket as an appetizer and it was absolutely delicious. We also ordered two different variations schnitzel since jagerschnitzel was not available, both variations were very good (all the schnitzel served is amazing); I have not had a bad meal at this restaurant. I highly recommended this restaurant if you enjoy German food. The staff was very friendly, they did a good job with social distancing and cleanliness.

3 stars for overall is because of limited menu due to COVID-19. But besides that it was awesome. The occasion was my 21st birthday.
