There are a handful of awesome restuarants in town. Bluestem is one of my favorites, The American on a good night , and Le Fou Frog. The difference is Le Fou Frog can take you away to another world. After thirty minutes sipping on your beverage of choice, and spending time with friends, you forget your in Kansas City, and... More

I took my wife to Le Fou Frog in the Rivermarket area of Kansas City for our 30th wedding anniversary. Le Fou Frog is the third French Restaurant we have visited in Kansas City. It has the least attractive and most out-dated decor. However, what the restaurant was lacking in decor was more than made up for by the incredible... More

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
