This is the first time at Le Fou Frog. We had a great experience, bubbles to start with escargot that was so delicious. Then we had a nice light arugula and beet salad and french onion soup, then truffle pasta and an amazing savory fish wrapped with bacon. All served and plated thoughtfully. Finished with creme brulee. Service was top notch and wine service excellent. We have a real gem here in KC with Le Fou Frog!

It would have been an outstanding but it took a long long time to receive our food. Our waiter came by to see how our dinner was and we had not been served yet. Oh well, Perhaps he was having a bad night.
Food was outstanding as usual.
We have been there many times and will certainly return.

Honestly one of the best, if not the best meal I have ever had. Took my wife for our anniversary and will most likely go there every year to celebrate (and probably a few times in between). We each had a soup, shared some escargot, and both had our own entree and desert. Literally all of it was phenomenal. Personally, although one of the most expensive items on the menu, I would highly recommend the Wagyu Rossini. I have had many filets from nice restaurants, but this blew them all out of the water. Additionally, the staff is amazing. While this is a nice restaurant, it is not pretentious in the least. If you have not been...GO!

Fantastic! I had French Onion Soup with a scallop appetizer. The Waygu Filet was tremendous followed by an apple tart that had the most incredible caramel sauce! We even had someone singing. A very eventful evening!

Le Fou Frog is our go to spot for special events. So naturally when our four year anniversary rolled around of course there was no question of where to go. The food was so delicious there aren't any words. The service was top notch as always. We had a very enjoyable time.

Having previously been to Le Fou Frog and had a great experience I thought that it would be a great place for my fiancée and I to celebrate our engagement. WRONG. Despite writing that we were celebrating our engagement in the reservation and calling ahead to make sure everything was alright we received absolutely terrible service. The waitress didn’t say offer congratulations or any kind remarks after she asked us what the occasion for our reservation was, instead bluntly asked me if my fiancée said yes to the proposal, before walking away. She forgot to place our drink order and when drinks finally came 15 minutes later they were from someone else and incorrect - we never got the tea but we sure were charged for it! We had an event to attend after dinner and expressed to our waitress that we were ready to order but she simply walked from the table. That happened twice. When she finally came back she apologized for being absentee and said she had a mental breakdown. Absolutely unacceptable for the staff of a restaurant charging what Le Fou Frog does to tell anyone, especially a couple celebrating their engagement, that they were having a mental breakdown. I’d expect that from fast food staff. Moreover, five minutes after placing our orders the waitress came to our table (didn’t fill empty water glasses) only to tell us we couldn’t have the food we ordered because the kitchen was out of stock. Pressed for time, we asked for her recommendations but none were given. Instead she sat in our booth and said she didn’t know what to say. What a disaster! We chose the braised lamb.
The food was delicious.
The service was horrendous.
After finishing our meal and wanting to make our next event in time I asked for the check. It was delivered to me quickly but I wasn’t surprised to find we were charged for the tea we never received. Instead of taking the check back the waitress wandered off to wherever. I asked three different staff members to take our check. Finally she came.

We love the crazy frog; great food, great service, a bit noisy ... Chilean sea bass tender and on a bed of creamy risotto; it was marvelous. Thanks

Le Fou Frog was an amazing venue. It's not a cheap place, but when you're looking for a nice romantic atmosphere to court your bride, or soon to be bride, who's looking for cheap? What you're looking for is quality and that's just what you get with Le Fou Frog, a quality experience with a romantic atmosphere and some of the most exquisitely prepared meals that pack mouth watering flavor you can't find anywhere else in Kansas City.

As usual, the service was excellent from the minute we walked in the door. The Frog was busy, with everyone seeming to be having a good time, chatting happily. Despite the cheerful crowd, the excellent acoustics allowed intimate talk. This is one of the greatest values for dinner in KC

It had been a few years since we last dined at Le Fou Frog. What took us so long to return!?! Everything was wonderful. Great outdoor seating. Wonderful service with spot on recommendations. The food was perfectly prepared and the sauces and accompaniments highlighted, but didn't dominate. We'll be back sooner next time.

French (as you could guess) rural style decor with a relaxing casual atmosphere. Presentation of each course was good, preparation was very good, and portions of the main course was generous.

I took two of my best friends here for happy hour. I’ve been here loads of times , but they were newbies. Now they won’t stop talking about how good the food was, and keep asking when we go back...

This Kansas City gem NEVER disappoints! From the greeting at the door, to the lovely, intimate bar area, to the amazing "chalkboard" of specials, it's a fine dining experience in a comfortable, almost cozy atmosphere. Yes - we could imagine easily we were eating at a special Paris bistro!

We always enjoy celebrating a special event with great food & service in this quaint setting. Our selection of five courses was staged perfectly. Our server Dale was attentive but not intrusive. The restaurant was the busiest we’ve experienced but our request for a quiet spot was honored so there was no disruption to our conversation.

The food was absolutely delicious! We had heard so many great things about this place before we were able to check it out for ourselves and it lived up to every single expectation. It was all of the class and decadence without any of the pretentiousness of some fine dining places. We will definitely be visiting again.
