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

We visited Le Fou Frog for the first time with another couple who was quite familiar with the venue. We shared appetizers and assorted stories of our travels (to France and otherwise). The entrees were well presented and quite lovely. It was a wonderful meal, but not the best I have ever had. The building itself it rather shabby, but... More

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
