A group of us (six in all) had dinner here a few weeks ago. Now understand, this group is a full on riot. We run the gamut from serious to silly and back again. We had a blast. Our waiter (I believe his name was Matt - so sorry if this is incorrect) kept pace with our crazy conversations and... More

We stopped in for an impromptu dinner on a Tuesday night. What a wonderful experience! My Filet Le Fou was cooked to perfection and was very tender. The side dishes were good. The salad I ordered as a starter was delicious; it had goat cheese and fig on it. We shared a special dessert they had that night that was... More

12/5/2015 Was having an enjoyable time until we expressed disappointment over one of our four entrees. Waiter informed manager who came by. Owner then came to table and heated discussion ensued with him dropping an "F" bomb and storming off. Understand things happen but totally ruined the evening. $450 to be totally disrespected, never again. Maybe a refresher course in... More

We first visited the Frog while visiting some fellow foodie friends in KC and were not disappointed. The service was well done, but not overstated. The server knew many details about the preparations about the dishes on the menu and specials and was able to answer all our questions. The food was first rate; our table ran the gambit from...

I loved the delicious sweetbreads, perfectly prepared. I also had their andouille and white bean appetizer, seared foie gras, and escargot drenched in garlic and butter with home cooked warm French bread. This restaurant is a must in KC. Great service, too!

We went for happy hour but didn't stay long. The outdoor seating would have been nice but the smoke was overpowering. Inside is dark and small and weird (not in a good "keep Austin weird" way,either) and still smells like smoke because of all the tobacco addicts rolling through the space with residue on their clothes. There was a rather... More

We enjoyed our food immensely at the Le Fou Frog. We split the Escargot which happened to be some of the best we have ever had. The butter sauce was seasoned to perfection and also delicious on the fresh warm bread. We both had the scallops from the special menu and that was very good. For dessert we ordered the... More

My first true french food in a space that looks more like a speakeasy. The food is seriously good. We have traveled to kc just to eat there. Daily specials and the attitude of a bistro where waiters are real waiters. The wine list is of moderate cost. The French Onion soup is amazing. Dont miss going there. Call for... More

Always one of our favorites in KC. Coming from a family of French Chefs this always hits the spot. Great selection of regular and seasonal items and great wine list as well.
