I ate here for the first time on this trip. Wow! I had the Jäger Schnitzel Vom Schwein with a side of sauteed spinach and finished it off with an Apple Strudel that was the best I've ever eaten. You can eat indoors or outside on the patio (my choice). This will become a regular stop on my future trips... More

I recently had a business lunch at Grunauer and was not disappointed. The restaurant is tidy and clean, the architecture visually pleasing and the food perfect. The lunch menu is quite affordable for an upscale dining experience. The staff was friendly and helpful. I enjoyed a wonderful schnitzelsimmel with bacon. Excellent! I will be back!

I ate at Grunauer on July 1, 2014 and had their special Salzburger Schnitzel with a Hofbrau Dunkel. The schnitzel is pan sautéed which produces tender pork covered with a buttery/crispy coating. Inside, the pork cutlet is stuffed with a hearty and tasty combination of cheese and mushrooms. The dish is served with fresh mashed potatoes and red cabbage. For... More

My husband has a pork dish and it was also fabulous. Apple strudel was awesome. I would've given this 5 stars but the place has an old... More

Great food. Wonderful atmosphere. Good variety of beer, wine and cocktails. Although I was born in 80s, I am big fan of Schwarzenegger and ordering Australian Farmers meal made me feel like I am Austrian Oak!

My wife and I had dinner here Saturday night (June 28) with my parents. We had no reservations but were seated promptly anyway. None of us had eaten here before; as a matter of fact, we had intended on eating at Lidia's next door, but the Austrian fare at Grunauer just sounded better than Italian. And boy were we right,...

I had a business lunch downtown at Grunauer's which was within walking distance of their office. Our reservation was for 11:30 on a Thursday and there was plenty of room. The food and service was exceptional. I had a schnitzel sandwich that was very tasty. It was nice to go with other people that were familiar with menu to give... More

We really enjoyed dining at Grunauer. It was nice to have a different dining experience and the food and service were excellent. We had the shank roast, which was delicious.

Visiting Kansas City 5/14, enjoyed a wonderful birthday lunch at Grunaur's! The special white asparagus soup with mushrooms was a perfect start. We shared a beat salad, then enjoyed goulash, roast pork and wonderful sausages with sauerkraut and potatoes. Great service and lovely atmosphere, right down to the music. A must return next time in Kansas City!
