The 3 of us each had different entres, and all were excellent. Our server, Bree, struck a perfect balance - being attentive and available without hovering.

Absolutely loved the A La "grünauer"! It was heavenly! Ended our lunch by splitting the Mohr Im Hemd - the Hazelnut Chocolate torte. So lovely. Fantastic coffee, as well.

Great food and atmosphere. We’ve been three time now and brought friends Alonso who were equally impressed. A great selection of European beers as well as a fully stocked bar where we waited for a few minutes. The server was knowledgeable and friendly as well . Overall one of my favorite restaurant experiences.

This was our third visit in just over a year. Each time we have been warmly greeted, seated promptly and immediately engaged by wait staff. The location is unusual in that it provides a great view of the many trains that visit Union Station, which is just across the way. The menu is refreshing in its many offerings and yet traditional entrees are available. Wait staff is quite knowledgable. The beautiful red rose was a nice suprise (Valentine's Day). We will certainly continue to return for our extra special dates.

My husband and I enjoyed our lunch yesterday! Our waiter took the time to explain menu choices since traditional Austrian/German names were printed. The food was good and the ambience was very nice.

This was our first trip to Grünauer, and we thoroughly enjoyed it! Our group included a couple of restaurant managers, but no one was familiar with the Austrian cuisine menu. We ordered a wide variety of items, and shared around the table. Every entree and side dish was delicious. We were there on a quiet Sunday evening in the winter, so we did not get to experience the Biergarten. We will definitely be going back.

My favorite restaurant in Kansas City. Food and service are always excellent with the added bonus of the ambiance of being in the Freight House. They also have a very good selection of German and Austrian beers. Their Paprikahuhn is my wife's any my favorite dish there!!

We had a wonderful dinner for four. Everything from our booth seating to service to the food was exceptionally good. We had the schnitzel both plain and stuffed with spinach, the steak and the beef in consommé along with salads to start and a hazelnut torte and flourless chocolate cake to finish. Everything including the veg garnish was delicious. Service was very attentive but relaxed and the wines and beers complemented the food. We had a wonderful evening and look forward to returning.

We should get to Grunauer more often - we always enjoy it. Goulash was the soup of the day, and it was delicious - warm, meaty and spicy on a cold winter's night. We split the ham-stuffed Weinerschnitzel with a side of cheesy spatzel, again delicious. The place was busy but not crowded, lively but not loud. Our server was knowledgeable and attentive. Good, good, good!

My recent visit to Grünauer was an excellent experience, as always! I have been here a few times and every time the staff is welcoming, knowledgeable and more than willing to help! This visit was just my dad and myself, and when it comes to the flavor and quality of the food we have yet to be disappointed. Keep up the good work Grünauer!
