Any time anyone wants to know the best French Restaurant in town I never hesitate to recommend this long time favorite. Good wine pairings and presentation top off the food that makes you ahhhh with pleasure. Dover Sole and the professional and entertaining prep was educational too. Scallops and mushroom appetizer Mmmmm. Don't let the outside fool you. It looks... More

A French jewel in Kansas City! We read about this restaurant in a hotel magazine. It was superb! A knowledgeable Frenchman guided us through the menu pointing out specific areas of interest including the wine and cocktail offerings. One order of stuffed sea-bass and another of the special skate fish and we were off! We ended the meal with a... More

What a jewel. Walking up to it I wasn't so sure but once I entered the door it was as if I'd been transported to a Paris bistro. We had mussels and foie gras for our appetizer, then fish recomended by the chef and the duck. Both were done perfectly. We let the chef (who I believe is the owner)... More

A neat out of the way place. We had friends take us here for dinner. One of their favorite places. It was our type of place as well. We enjoyed the people, the waitstaff and the food. A couple of the servers sang. The rendition of I dreamed a dream from les Mis was fantastic. If your looking for a... More

This small French restaurant provides excellent cuisine. The escargot was some of the best outside of Paris, & the fish was fresh & well-prepared. Wines complemented the meal & were well-priced.

We visited Le Fou Frog for our anniversary dinner and were so pleasantly surprised! The outside of the building is slightly misleading, but the inside is intimate and cozy and the service is superb. My husband had one of their steaks and I had a scallop dish and everything was AMAZING! All the flavors were finely tuned and delicious. I... More

We went on a weeknight with few other patrons at Le Fou Frog. The welcome was cordial and prompt. Our server was quite helpful and even more so when he learned we had never dined there before. The specials menu on the handheld chalkboard was varied and quite appetizing. The number of offerings is impressive. Our charcuterie board presented wonderful... More

The outside of the building is very misleading. Don't let it deter you. Once you step inside it has a really cool intimate french bistro feel. We went to Le Fou Frog after an afternoon at the ballet and it was a great way to end the evening. The food was amazing. My husband was a little freaked out when... More

Took my wife for her birthday and were very pleased with the dining experience. Our waiter was friendly, very attentive, and knew the menu very. For starters, my wife had a salad and I had the French onion soup. Salad was very good and the soup was top notch. For an appetizer we had a sampler plate with cheeses, pickled... More
