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!

Our server was friendly and most helpful in describing drinks and food.
All of our choices were delicious. The flourless chocolate cake is a must!
A lovely dining experience for all ages!

Schnitzel was good, spaztle was weird- overcooked and too loose, bland, rotkohl was horrible, tasted like thick sweet molasses, and yes I grew up in Germany so I know what it is supposed to taste like.

First of all I want to say that the food was excellent everything was excellent, but now I remembered why we stopped coming as often, it was because Jager schnitzel is only available on one night of the week and that’s our families favorite so little disappointed it’s only on Monday nights should’ve remembered I should’ve checked the menu so it’s partly my fault too but I don’t wanna have to look at the day of the week to decide when to get Jager schnitzel so even though the meal and our server and everything was great and delicious I’m not sure when will be back again. Not having the Jager schnitzel on a normal night or Tuesday night did not go over real well with my family or I. I never say never and I’m sure will be back and hopefully it’ll be on a Monday night or hopefully things will change but after all these years some things should just not be changed and I know you guys changed a while ago but I thought that was just for Covid. Thank you

The beers were great, the decor was beautiful, the appetizers were delicious. My only let down was the daily special, which was not seasoned at all. Service was great.

We dined for our Son’s Birthday. The food was amazing and beautiful. Two of us got the beet salad. This was big enough to share. The salad was fresh and delicious with an amazing marmalade dressing! Three of ordered the goulash. It was slightly spicy with plenty of gravy to soak in our tasty spatzle. Our daughter ordered the spinach and squash spatzle. It was light and flavorful. Our son ordered the pork trio. He loved it. Pork chop, pork belly and wurst. All lightly smoked and served with delicious sauerkraut. The bread basket was so worth ordering. Four different types of bread, hot from the oven. Served with butter and a cream cheese dip. Amazing dinner and fabulous service.

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

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.
