I went to Le Fou Frog at the recommendation of many friends, and was disappointed from the moment I got there. I was 10 minutes early for my reservation to find the door locked (despite the website saying they were open 30 minutes prior for happy hour). I was rudely greeted and given an attitude for arriving early. I was... More

My husband picked this place for his birthday dinner. We both left disappointed. We had a reservation on a Saturday night, and was looking forward to a quiet intimate meal. Well, this is NOT the place for that. We were seated at a tiny table and had a tiny table about one foot away on both sides. It was very... More

A bit out of the way and little curb appeal but GREAT. Dark and cozy small restaurant and Bar. We did all appetizers and loved the portions and sharability. We did excellent fries, cheeses, breads, etc. Dessert was a Christmas Holiday ice cream roll`-outstanding. Service was excellent and food quality top notch.

We first found Le Fou Frog two years ago when we were looking for a place to have escargot on a sunny summer day in downtown KC. We sat on the patio (which is next to the parking lot), ate appetizers, drank a little wine and thoroughly enjoyed the food and ourselves. I've wanted to go back for dinner ever... More

Being a KC native this has been on my wish list for many years. We decided to spend our anniversary here and we were less than impressed. First, service was horrible. Our server left us sitting with only water and menus for almost a half hour. When she finally stopped by she told us that we'd been seated outside of... More

We live to go here for a special evening out. While it is a bit pricey you will get a fabulous meal and an amazing experience. We prefer to go on a weeknight when there is a more quiet ambiance. If you go on the weekend I would definitely book ahead.

The food was interesting. The singing was good. The overall evening was less than good, because of the cold temperature in the building. They should have some heat on such a cold night.

Stopped by for a light repast prior to concert by KC Jazz Orchestra. Quick, personal, professional and friendly service. Nice selection of wines, well and reasonably priced. Short list of dishes and additional specials. In and out in timely manner, with no rush from us or the waitstaff. Pomme frites, chevre chaud, nice bread and butter. Very pleasing experience that...

we had friends come to KC for the the Thanksgiving holiday, and they rented a condo in the River Market area. Invited us to join them at Le Fou Frog for dinner the night after Thanksgiving. I have not eaten in a pure french restaurant in many years and frankly thought the style of food was gone for ever. We... More

We met up with two others for dinner and the first thing you notice is the difference between the rough exterior (older looking peach colored brick building) and the pleasant interior. Quaint and relaxing atmosphere. The wine and dinner menu's were quite extensive with varied choices; we'll go again just to try some of the other dishes. The wine service... More
