The atmosphere and food make this restaurant quintessentially French! Sometimes we just go for drinks and the happy hour is awesome!

This is a small, quaint restaurant downtown K.C. It has a lot of charm and amazingly great food. Call beforehand and they will make your visit extra special. Great date night!

This was our second time here and we had the same waitress (Jill) who is superb. Some of the best food and wine I have had. Every entree was great.

After three years of trying, we were finally able to get a reservation for restaurant week at Le Fou Frog. We went with high hopes, but they were sadly not fulfilled. The amuse bouche was sushi....sushi in a French restaurant....that did not fit at all....More
