Service
 
A "spectacular setting" in the Crossroads Freight House provides a striking complement to the "authentic" Austrian-German fare and "impressive service" at this moderately priced "hidden gem" ; with a "phenomenal" selection of European beers, wines and "wonderful" cocktails, the bar is a "destination in itself" , while the patio overlooking Union Station is "great for groups."

Wonderful experience after an initial oddity. We arrived shortly before 5pm and were told by a manager(?) that we'd need to vacate the table by 6:15 without any explanation. The restaurant was about half full the entire time we were there, so not sure why the need for us to leave by a certain time. After that weird start, the rest of the evening was great! Delicious food (kale salad and spaetzel for me, house salad and schnitzel for my husband) with big portions (we both have leftovers), the German beer was tasty, and the dessert special was the perfect end to a wonderful meal. As we were leaving at 6:10, we heard a couple check in for their 6:15 reservation and that the table was being cleaned for them. If it was our table, not sure why the dozen empty ones wouldn't have been suitable.

Extremely overpriced; food mediocre at best. The Jaegerschnitzel sauce tasted like canned mushroom soup and contained very few actual mushrooms. I also ordered a side of red cabbage and it was overcooked, soggy, and over-seasoned. To be fair my husband's traditional schnitzel was a bit better. All in all, at over $20 per entree we expected better quality and presentation. I feel a fair value for would be something more like $10-12/entree as I honestly could not differentiate the meals from those of a cheap diner. We will not be returning.

AMAZING! We found this area and this restaurant by accident. The authentic German/Austrian food blew us away. Good portion sizes. Attentive service. Make a reservation or sit at the bar, if you can find space. We loved the upscale atmosphere and food from our childhoods. We saved this in our phones with hopes of visiting again the next time we visit the KC area. This place is a must on your KC food bucketlist.
