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

I read through some of the reviews and see complaints about slow service. Having just returned from France, it was delightful to find a restaurant where you are not rushed through a meal and out the door. After a pimms cup and champagne, the amuse bouche was quite tasty. Our first course was the excellent tuna tartare. For dinner we... More

This is a favorite of ours and a stalwart choice for family/special occasions. Be warned, it isn't cheap. If you opt for their steaks you will be parting with a sum north of $50 for an entree, which means it needs to be outstanding. Fortunately, the food here is indeed of a very high quality. The restaurant itself is perhaps... More

My wife and I celebrated our anniversary last evening at Le Fou Frog and it could not have been a better experience. It is wonderful to visit a restaurant where you know the owners are present to make sure everything is perfect (and we thank you for the roses for my wife!), the server consistently reliable and the food outstanding....

Although the food was delicious, the slow, inattentive, and irritating waiter left something to be desired. The menu is ultra expensive and there are many other comparable places in the city that have MUCH better service.

Cool, eclectic French restaurant. Small, dark, cozy and romantic. Excellent lobster bisque and short ribs. A bit slow on the service but overall loved the singing wait staff. The mean was two thumbs up, but unfortunately the desserts were an epic fail. Worth skipping the desserts as a result. Definitively awesome ambience and I'd go again for the main courses!

We had a wonderful waitress in the bar area and we munched on pate and other meats. Delicious. Martini was perfection. Was a little disappointed in the food. Lobster bisque was okay and my sea bass was okay and for the price of $31 dollars...wish I had ordered another entree. Husband had sweetbreads...was okay. We went years ago and food... More

Amazing that such an unassuming place can deliver such astounding food. Wonderful menu. Great wine list. Attentive staff. If in KC do not miss it. Make reservations!
