Grünauer never disappoints! The food was amazing from the appetizer all the way to the dessert. Our waiter Anthony was fabulous and his recommendations were on point! The food is always fresh and the flavors are extraordinary. If you're looking for something different in KC this is the place!!
The Grunauer experience can be summed up with one word. AWESOME, SIMPLY AWESOME.
Excellent menu with something for every taste. Good service. We always have a great experience here. Wonderful desserts.
We introduced friends to this restaurant a few nights ago. They raved about the food. I knew they would. One had halibut and the others had Jäger Schnitzel Vom Schwein and Cordon Bleu Schnitzel. All terrific. Service was wonderful, too.
We loved the interior architecture, food and service.
First time there and it was wonderful.group of 6 and we all lived our. Definitely going back
As always, Grunauer never disappoints. Fabulous food, friendly service, the best German fare in town. Thank you!
Always great food and good service. Too bad there's not one in Lenexa!
We had the special white asparagus soup and Norwegian salmon as well as gulasch with spinach spaetzl and the halibut. All was delicious. The waiter (Hansel believe it or not) was very good with suggestions.
Every year our oldest son chooses Grunauer for his birthday dinner. He feel in love with German food when he worked in Germany for two years. It has become his traditional birthday place.
Brought Mom here for Mother’s Day lunch. Good drinks, good service and excellent food!
Always great to come down here for the best Austrian/German food and drink in town. It is patio season and their patio is always so relaxing with great service!
Absolutely fantastic! We stopped in Kansas City for the night on our way from Denver to Nashville and found out about Grunauer on trip advisor. The reviews were very good but didn’t do the quality of the food and ambience any justice. It was excellent! We are from South Germany and familiar with German/Austrian food and I can honestly say that the food at Grunauer was better than what I ever had in Germany.
We struggled what to chose as everything sounded so good, and finally ordered the mixed marinated salads and fried mushrooms for starters and the Wiener Schnitzel vom Kalb (veal) and White Asparagus with house made sauce hollondaise and local smoked ham, which was the special of the day. Everything was authentic and absolutely delicious. Even though we were full already we just couldn’t resist the apple strudel which was again just perfect. Ended our meal with an espresso and a Williams and a Apricot Schnaps. We were in heaven! Will definitely go back again whenever we stop in Kansas City.
Delicious! I used to live in Austria and love coming here when I need my knoedel fix!
Excellent meal, excellent service. I was just visiting KC and selected this restaurant largely on reviews. They are well deserved. This is a very fine Austrian restaurant. No attempt to broaden the menu to please everybody. I really liked that. I had the wiener schnitzel. Excellent buttery crust.
I got there early and was waiting at the bar. The bartender gave me a few insider suggestions and they turned out great. (Especially when you have a hard time pronouncing any of the dishes on the menu.) The ambiance was pretty cool as well. Definitely a great find.
The food was excellent, our party of 4 each had something different from the menu and no one was disappointed. I have been there multiple times and each time tried something and have yet to find something I don't like.
Second time dining there. Exceptional EVERYTHING. Not a big beer drinker - but both times described what I typically liked - and both times the different beers they've recommended MUCH BETTER than my favs. The food - EXCEPTIONAL. We took friends from out of town who are never happy with anything in Kansas City - they commented 'best restaurant and best food ever.'
Excellent on all fronts. Service was greet. Food was filling, unique and high quality. The facility and room is beautiful and we can’t wait to go back again.
It was the first time for us, we thought the place and food was awesome
It was a wonderful experience. The food was absolutely amazing and our server, Hansel, was top notch. Perfect balance of professional and engaging. We felt attended to but never interrupted. We will be sure to go back.
Everything was very good, we did get a little sticker shock at the price of the special, might not have ordered it if we knew how much it was
Anther wonderful experience at this restaurant. Very authentic . One of the best for German/Austrian food specialties.
Even with the First Friday crowd we were taken directly to our table when we arrived. Our server told us about the daily special including the price. (This is not the norm at all restaurants.). Throughout the evening our server and the bus staff were appropriately attentive but not intrusive.
My wife and I both found our meals to be delicious. Her traditional Weinerschnitzel was large and tender. I had the “3 sausage” sampler. The currywurst a was fairly tasty wurst coated in a lackluster thick curry sauce - not at all what I expected. The other two wurst were very tasty, cooked just right, and more than made up for the disappointment of the currywurst.
We split the dessert special of the day, a very intriguing concoction that our waiter described as “bread pudding balls with ice cream.” The description, while not wholly inaccurate, did not do the dessert justice. The “bread pudding”, rather than the usual somewhat dense concoction of dough, spices, and fruit, was more the texture of a raisin crumb cake and not very sweet. The cake balls were served with a creme anglaise as well as ice cream. The balance of the textures and sweetness was just right - not too sweet, not too tart, not too dry, and not gooey.
Would I return to Grunauer? Yes, I would. I like the food, I like the service, and the menu prices are not completely horrendous.
The food was great. Tasty with good portions. I was very pleased.
Great food and fantastic beer
Grünauer is a favorite for our family. The German meals are authentic and so tasty! I had the Bauernschmaus and days later am still thinking about it. It fills up fast on the weekends, so get your table early.
Food is super good ... price is a little higher than expected but I don’t mind given how good everything taste. Plan on a nap post meal
The room feels like a bierhall. The service was friendly and helpful, making good recommendation. The food was phenomenal.
I took my boyfriend here for their Sunday stelze, to celebrate our anniversary. The food was delicious, and the portions are generous. Lunch here is a great option if you are tight on funds but want to enjoy their delicious fare. Wonderful!
Went out with my boyfriend for a date night and this was the perfect place. The food was AMAZING. I love German food and this was the best place I have ever found to get it. Would highly recommend for a night out or special occasion. The service was great as well.
The food and service were outstanding!
This was a wedding anniversary celebration dinner which I had noted in our reservation. The restaurant did not acknowledge our anniversary in any way or manner. I was quite disappointed. My husband's dinner, the sauerbraten special, was quite good. My schnitzel was over cooked. Service was good -- not something that we will remember as exceedingly good - but good enough that we were comfortable.
First visit to this restaurant and we all were really impressed! the food was excellent, service was wonderful and the ambiance was cozy. All four of us completely enjoyed the experience and will be back!
This is one of our favorite restaurants. They always have great food and service.
Great meal. Authentic Austrian food. Server was friendly and not pushy. Let us enjoy the evening at our own pace. We’ll be going back the next time this group gets together.
Phenomenal experience and incredible food.
My favorite place to dine in in KC. The food and service are outstanding. We would highly recommend just giving them a try. If you do, you will not be sorry. What you will do is, be coming back as well.
Awesomeness all the way around. Food value and service.
Fantastic Germanic/Austrian cuisine.
