When one thinks of French restaurants, it is easy to be put off by pretentious service and off-putting ambience, but the Frog is just the opposite. First, the food is fabulous. We shared the lobster bisque (heavenly), house salad, and my wife had the baked sea bass, and I had twin lobster tails. The baked sea bass was perfectly prepared with a slightly crisp outside and correctly cooked inside on a layer of tasty cheesy risotto. My twin lobster tails were lightly butter and cooked to perfection, also accompanied by sautéed green beans and risotto. We finished with a perfect panna cotta and finished off a reasonably priced bottle of Cote de Rhone red.
Our server, Lisa, was knowledgeable about the menu, attentive to our needs, developing a nice banter with us without being intrusive. On top of that, she entertained the house with a beautiful ballad worthy of a professional performer. The co-owner stopped and chatted with us and gave us the impression that they really cared about us and appreciated us being there on a snowy Saturday night.
This is a KC Original and lives up to the standard for an original restaurant. Quirky ambience, individualized service and quality, unique menu items. This is our go-to restaurant in Kansas City. We have never had anything but a first class, top-notch dining outing here.
