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 high-lighting some of the best specialties Central Europe has to offer. The Wunder Bar 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 you a fine dining experience with a family feel-- so make a reservation today!

This restaurant is one of our favorite places to dine and we think that the patio is one of the best for downtown! We have known Nicholas and Elizabeth for years and we were given the opportunity to see some new additions to the Spring dinner menu. For a limited time they are replacing the fish dish with Walleye from Lake Michigan, which is excellent!

One of our favorite places to eat in KC when we come in from Topeka. Great food, good wine pairings and knowledgeable helpful staff in a beautiful setting, both inside and on the patio. Easy free parking is a plus.

We were celebrating our 33rd anniversary. Anthony was a great and engaging server. The price point was decent, the food outstanding, and the ambience was perfect. We dined upstairs. I cannot recall whether or not the dining room had a name or not, but we enjoyed every minute of our time there!

First of all the service was bad! The server guy was very rude and was given such a bad vibe and was acting like he’s so cool and who are you to eat here. No a good place for o eta at!!! Very pretend and toxic atmosphere! My husband liked his food. The bread was pretty nice too. Potatoes are really good too. The smoked salmon was way to salty and I couldn’t eat it. He did take it off the bill but I paid the price of eating it because my stomach was hurting after that. Not coming there again for sure!

As always the food was wonderful. I had the goulash and my husband had the schnitzel. Both were delicious but more than either of us could finish. We shouldn’t have but we each ordered a strudel. I had the apple and my husband had the cheese. Both are great but I prefer the apple. Social distancing is observed.

Meal was authentic but was overpriced (lived in Europe for five years ) service was ok, had to ask for the bread service, was brought out halfway thru my meal.

bread is listed on the menu so, just like all menu items, if you want them, you need to ask for them.

As a born and raised German I love their food. Most authentic Austrian/Southern German food I have had in a restaurant. A place for special occasions or when I just need a pick me up. Service is always great.

As usual, the food, drink and service were outstanding! This is the only restaurant of this type in the area, and worth the drive to get there. Austrian restaurants are not common, and the combination of high class German with Hungarian influences is outstanding.

Food was very good, service was good. On the way out we said thank you to the 2 hostesses and they both turned away from us and did not thank us or anything at all. They actually turned away intentionally it seemed. Rude.

Never disappoints! Amazing food, outstanding service. You leave full of comfort food, which was perfect on a cold and rainy day. The room was very dark (hard to read the menu), but this was undoubtedly intentional. Can’t say enough good things about Grunauer!
