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!

Food was bland and everything had vinegar in or on it.

The rye bread was the only thing I enjoyed..

Ricardo was an amazing server. He helped us a lot with the menu and some food limitations we had. Bread was phenomenal! We will be coming back for sure.

Outstanding overall experience. The highlights were the schnitzel, the beet salad, the excellent grüner veltliner selection (we had a bottle of 2016 Pichler) and fantastic service from Lucas and the not-a-sommelier but basically a sommelier who helped us pick the wine. The spaetzle and potato cucumber salad were good but not amazing. I would 100% go back just for the schnitzel-gruner pairing options. Well done!!

Restaurant was okay, a bit overpriced for what it was. Many of the other patrons seemed pretentious, shallow types. Not the best environment if you appreciate friendly, genuine experience

Gruenaur never disappoints. Have yet to try a dish that was not delishous. Highly recommend the cheese stoussel and after dinner coffee.

Overall very enjoyable dinner. Would recommend bringing your phone as the lighting is quite dim which makes the menu hard to read. Get the pork belly, you will be glad you did.

Several years ago we had our wedding reception in their private dining room upstairs. Since then, we try to get back here once a year but unfortunately haven't been able to for a couple of years due to COVID. So glad to say that our meal last night was as good or better than we remembered. I could have made a meal just on the bread basket, each flavor was so good we couldn't choose a favorite. The goulash soup and schnitzel was very reminiscent of our travels in Europe. We do love this place.

Service was fast and the kitchen got my food out quickly. The quality of my food and drink was excellent. The wammerl was exceptional. I felt it was a little noisy, but no more so than most other places.

The server was engaging and top notch. The food was very good. You don't think about a side of potato salad to be worthy of mention but it is! And, my husband's goulash disappeared in a hurry. We took home an apple dessert that was delish.

Our server was phenomenal. Widely varied menu for an Austrian restaurant, definitely options for vegetarians as well as carnivores. Tables well spaced and staff masked, felt comfortable taking my elderly mother with us. Amazing beer list!

First time at Grunauer, our server Kat was very knowledgeable about the menu and guided us through it. I had Schnitzel with spaetzle and my boyfriend had the Goulash, both very good. Bread basket came with four different types of warm crusty rolls and butter. Delicious. Good size portions on the entrees. We split the warm apple strudel with whipped cream which was to die for! We're not drinkers but they had an amazing beer list. We'll definitely go back!

My husband and I both enjoyed our meals very much. We finished our lunch with apple strudel and coffee. Both were outstanding. Lovely setting and lovely service. We both agreed we need to come to Gruenauer more often.
