Grünauer Ratings and Reviews
Wanted to have a authentic German meal. ...
Wanted to have a authentic German meal. Overall fairly good. The goulash could use much more spetzle. Our waiter brought our food but never checked back to see how it was, he only had 2 other tables. So, not up to our expectations.

Our cocktails were expertly mixed and the well liquor (which we opted for)was above average. Our entrees were well prepared and very flavorful. We felt our server, although knowledgeable was less than enthusiastic and seemed a bit impatient. Other than that slight issue our experience was wonderful.

I had the three sausages dish, my wife had Ungarisches Rindsgulasch, which is a Hungarian Gulasch, and our boys had chicken tenders and grilled cheese. All of the food was great, the beer was amazing, and it's definitely the best German Restaurant I've found in Kansas City thus far. We'll definitely be going back again in the future!

We are no strangers to Grünauer and have never been disappointed. This time we were able to share this special KC gem with good friends who had never eaten there, though they actually live within walking distance and actually walked to the restaurant that evening. Due to work responsibilities they travel internationally often and are familiar with German/Austrian cuisine, enough to recognize regional differences.
We were thrilled to introduce them to a restaurant that we enjoy (we also travel abroad extensively) and wanted to see if they would share our opinion of Grünauer. They did, of course, and loved everything. For our main course three of us had one of my favorites (also the server's favorite) jägerschnitzel. My wife had the classic schnitzel. Our outstanding server, Daniel, gave the perfect beer pairing and all were impressed by the quality of everything. For dessert we all four split the delicious apple strudle served in the traditional way with heavy whipped cream, not ice cream. I'm sure our friends will be back, as will we.

We had a pre-theater dinner and they got us in and out at exactly the time we needed to leave. Checks were brought early so we could get on the road. I call that excellent service. We enjoyed our food...two friends had the Jager Schnitzel which they have every time we go there because they love it. The Special Goulash and Fish were excellent also.

We have been here several times and it has always been fabulous. The food is delicious. The wine selection and imported beers are wonderful. Just give it a try if you like Austrian food you will be glad you came here.

Recommend the pork bellies! And, the schweinhaxe that you can only get on Sundays.
Everything else is hit or miss.
The steaks are their low points in the menu... especially when a strong BBQ and meat place is next door.
People are friendly and helpful though. I really enjoy them, but the food is struggling to stand out against a sea of great choices in KC.
Best wishes and Prost!

Always a pleasure. When we have out of town company we always take them out for: 1) some KC BBQ and 2) Gruenauer. Previous time we wanted to linger for a long visit and we were not rushed out by servers. Most recently, we let server know we were headed to the opera and he moved everything along in a timely fashion.

The delicious and authentic German-Austrian cuisine was highlighted by the attentive service. Extensive wine list, and Euro beers to choose from. Their food, while pricey, is worth every dollar, right down to the dessert and coffee.

The food is mediocre. I had the sauerbraten type dish and there was a ball on the plate that I couldn't identify (I thought it was a potato dumpling, but don't know). My friend had the goulash which was not served with noodles as one would expect. The serving sizes are sufficient and the atmosphere is nice.

My husband and son enjoyed the choice of sausages while I had a very good schnitzel sandwich but the pommes frites were the best! Staff was very friendly and efficient. We were definitely done in less than an hour so good place for lunch if you are a working person.

We celebrated our wedding Anniversary on Halloween. Our waiter, Josiah, was such a treat. So accommodating and pleasant. The food, cocktails, wine, and dessert were outstanding. We recommend "the Dirty One" cocktail for a great start to your evening. The Bratwurst and beef Gulasch our among our favorites. The flourless chocolate cake is delectable. We had a wonderful time and will always return for our special occasions. We have had Christmas dinner with our family here the last few years and it is always incredible.

For a flavor of Germanic foods in a beautiful setting you cannot beat Grunauer. The host was friendly and welcoming, the beer was awesome and our service was top notch. I usually do Grunauer for lunch so it was a pleasant change to do dinner.

First time at Grünauer and I will say now that I WILL BE BACK! Tremendous German food at a good price. Great beer that goes well with the food also. Sat outside since it was a great night. Perfect place for an intimate meal or a fun time as a group.

Mallory was our server and she was very courteous to us as well as helpful (give that lady a raise). Nothing but a perfect meal with professional staff. I have never had an authentic German meal before and I loved it. Whenever I'm in KC again, I williams every effort to reserve a table!

Outstanding service from start to finish. Our reservation was ready on time, table was very nice. Wonderful wine suggestion by our server. Food was great. Not too noisy - we liked the intimate setting. It is a great place to dress up and take someone for a occasion. Or you can sit at the bar or outside and be comfortable in jeans.

Grünauer's always delivers. We brought our teenagers with us for a night out. With reservations, we were seated exactly at the promised time. The bar is a little noisy and hard to talk in so we went outside since it was a nice night. Grünauer's food is to delicious, no matter what you order. My wife and I split al a schnitzel, my son had spatzle, and my daughter got a salad and a bratwurst. Everyone loved their selection. For dessert, we got the apple strudel and the flourless chocolate cake. We all agreed the apple strudel was the better choice. The cake was a little too much for topping off a heavy meal. I highly recommend this restaurant.
