Great place with friends

We went on a Saturday without reservations and we were able to sit in the bar. It was fine. The service and food was great. Living in Germany for a number of years, it was great treat for good European cooking. If you have a craving for good European dining this is the place.

We really enjoyed Grunauer. The German food is delicious. It was expensive but worth it. Nice big servings, enough for lunch the next day. We've gone there several times.

So much food! The portions were very generous. The wait staff was knowledgeable and helpful. Be sure to bring a full wallet though, because this good food comes at a cost.

We stumbled on this place while venturing out from our hotel for dinner. Very good Austrian-German cuisine. The sauerbraten special was excellent. Our children, who can be picky eaters, even enjoyed it. Very nice wait staff and very attentive. Great place to go.

Before Grunauer, I had never experienced Austrian cuisine. I am grateful I took the chance because it was well worth it! Fantastic atmosphere, helpful staff, and delicious food.

I am very angry at myself for waiting so long to go there. I worked in a German restaurant in college, and this is the real deal. The sauerbraten and red cabbage were perfect. The apple strudel with cream was so authentic. The wife had schnitzel and loved it. One of our friends tried the Hungarian goulash with spatzle which... More

It has been far too long since I was last at Grunauer's. We came to downtown for the Rush concert last week, and my compatriot had never been to Grunauer's but had been to Germany. We both enjoyed a few Czech and German brews on tap, as well as the wonderfully tasty cheese plate for an appetizer. For our entrees,... More

We ate outdoors and enjoyed ourselves with German, Hungarian and Austrian entrees followed with 3 different deserts. The server was pleasant and our friends from Baltimore seemed quite happy with our choice for lunch.

I've visited this restaurant several times, and the food is good, but the evening prices don't give the diner a good value. I would recommend lunch where the value is a little more in line with the quality of the food and service. The food selection is pretty basic, and the food tilts more toward German than Austrian.
