My second time at Le Fou but it had been several years. First time for friends and they loved the experience. My husband loves the escargot. Seafood is stupendous and steaks are great! Very quaint experience.

I had not been to Le Fou Frog in over four years but went for my birthday. First of all, it was packed. The menu has had more than several items added, like Sweetbreads, pasta with escargot, quail. Everything we got to eat was amazing (quail, kangaroo, sweetbreads, lamb, escargot, sardine salad), and we are tough critics because my friend... More

I took my husband out to dinner - treat at a restaurant he had wanted to go to for a long time. After all, he took me to the World Series ! We were shown to our table immediately upon arriving. Everything we ordered was delicious (sea bass stuffed with lobster, steak au poivre, spinach/beet salad - loved the dressing,... More

You want a quiet romantic booth for that special night, check. You want a patio that is pet friendly for happy hour and wine, check. You want a nice meal with helpful staff, check. Don't feel intimidated by this French gem. Go. Ask the staff what's good and you won't be disappointed - check.

Over and over again the chef and staff at Le Fou charm our senses. They have entrees that will not find anywhere else and they are always outstanding. They have a great happy hour menu. We recently had the frog legs and escargot and sat in the bar area for happy hour. Both dishes were delicious. It really does feel... More

This is one of my husband and my favorite restaurants in Kansas City. When you see it from the outside, it does not look very special but once inside you feel like you are in a french restaurant in Paris. The food is without a doubt exceptional. My husband and I were celebrating our 25th anniversary and it was perfect.... More

Starting with the food which, of course, is why you go out for dinner. This place has an adventuresome and outstanding menu - very French with many regional touches. Both of our entrees (Venison & rack of lamb) were high quality and prepared perfectly. Like others have noted, the portions are large and presented in a homey, old fashioned way.... More

We arrived to find the restaurant bathed in red lights. The proprietor was our waiter and he couldn't have been nicer. The food was outstanding from the amuse to dessert. In addition we were treated to songs by one of the help ( lovely voice and very enjoyable). You definitely feel like you are anywhere by Kansas City.

Went to Le Fou Frog with a large group and it was wonderful. The food was very good, the wine list was great and had affordable options. The service for our groups was A+ but its the atmosphere trumps it all. As other reviewers said, the atmosphere is totally the European and in a very storybook way. The owner knew... More

First, let me say that our server was excellent, and the little food we had was divine. My brother and his daughter (14 years old) were visiting and we needed a place to go after First Fridays and the places closer to the crossroads were way too busy. The evening started quite nicely. We ordered a bottle of wine for... More
