Foie gras that melts in your mouth...need I say more?

I dined here with a friend visiting from NY who loves French cuisine and was not disappointed. Our server was lovely and had an amazing singing voice (singing is part of the dining experience, it seems). We started with 2 appetizers, the escargot and seared foie gras, both which were mind blowing... read more

My wife and I had an enjoyable meal and experience for her birthday there. The meal started with a foie gras torchon which both of us enjoyed. I had the sea bass with the chorizo and saffron sauce and my wife had the lobster served on risotto. I enjoyed hearing the chefs in the back yelling not sure everyone might.... More

For my birthday, my daughter in law and son took us to Le Fou Frog. It was a memorable experience from the first sip of clear the palate soup to the cream Brule. The wait staff was most pleasant and helpful. Never have I had a waiter sing Happy Birthday to me in French let alone kiss my hand at... More

I know a lot of people love Le Fou Frog, but I have found it to be hit or miss. I've had some experiences when I loved the cuisine, and found it to be creatively prepared and presented, but other times when the service was a bit pretentious/insincere and the food was underwhelming at best. Straightforward and a bit one-dimensional... More

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
