Lovely little restaurant near the River Market area. Extensive wine and cocktail list is available. We tried the lobster bisque and while it was good, we prefer the creamier versions we had elsewhere. The Branzino was excellent and I would order that again. During our dinner we had the pleasure of enjoying a serenade from one of the staff members.... More

My wife and I like to go here for special occasions. It doesn't look like the best restaurant in KC walking in, but it most assuredly is. The service is amazing, personable and warm. The only thing better is the food. The wine list is killer and doesn't have to destroy your budget. I cannot say enough good things.

I truly believe this is the best restaurant in Kansas City. Not only is the food fantastic but the service is unreal. It looks dicey on the outside but everything on the inside is amazing. Cannot miss!

The Crazy Frog serves very nice French food and the owner/waiters are very nice and the surroundings once you are inside are delightful.

A friend and I met recently for dinner at Le Fou Frog. I hadn't eaten there in a while. It was a late dinner, and unfortunately the scallops special was AD6. So although we had discussed and decided it was beyond our budget, we decided to go for the Dover Sole and split it. We also split a caprese salad... More

One of my wife and my favorite places. We just don't get there often enough. For the first time ever we tried the lamb carpaccio. Delicious if you enjoy lamb. We usually split an entree because we aren't big eaters and we like trying different dishes. This trip though we each ordered one. My wife had the duck breast (she... More

I came here in April of 2014 with my boyfriend on prom night. ( was here because we both skipped out on prom. ) Totally better than going to prom. We started off with the escargot (our first time having it) which was the perfect balance between butter & garlic . I forgot exactly what we had but it was... More

This is a place to indulge but you have to disregard the exterior and be prepared for a café inside. The escargot was tender and not chewy/rubbery. Salad and bread fresh, Foie Gras and Lobster Bisque excellent, trout and "surf n turf" were outstanding. The sparking rose was very good. Price for dessert was refunded when the pear proved to...

The staff was fun, friendly and attentive. The Lobster Bisque was marvelous. I would come back just to have this. Creative Drink menu. The only fall back was the plastic in my soup??? A Bit on the expensive side.
