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.

We arrived a little early and the restaurant was able to seat us right away. Our server was great, his recommendations for dinner were delicious. The wine was great, atmosphere was just right. We would absolutely recommend Le Fou Frog and will be back!

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.

Food was terrific. The waiter did an excellent job explain the menu. It was a little noisy but not to the level that it effected our conversations. We had family in from out of town. Next time they are in town they want to go back.

What words can you use to adequately describe flavorful, perfectly prepared and presented plates of food? Every course came out in a timely order but our group of 6 never felt rushed. My filet with a Boursin, lobster sauce was so flavorful and satisfying. The dessert special of chocolate marquis and chocolate cake with buttercream was beyond my expectations. I still smile 2 days later remembering each bite! Thank you to the hostess, waitress and cooks for a fabulous evening we will compare to every restaurant for a long time to come.

We have eaten at Le Fou Frog many times. It has been above and beyond our expectations every time. We brought out-of town friends with us on the 13th. Our waitress was Michelle and she remembered me and my husband from previous visits. Pretty good because we don't live in KC either but visit a lot so we don't get to Le Fou Frog as often as we like. As usual everything was superb from the service to the food and drinks(great vodka lemonade and martinis). I was recently diagnosed with type 2 diabetes but found your menu to be very accommodating for my diet. This will always be our dining destination when coming to KC.

The very French menu is what attracted me to try Le Fou Frog . We were not let down with the quality of food and the presentation! My husband loves escargot, he said they were tender , seasoned nicely to highlight the escargots flavor not over power it . I had the fois gras appetizer which was everything dream about in a fois gras , tender , melt in your mouth goodness . My mouth is still watering writing about it ! We had the smoked duck salad . Duck was lightly smoked with a light dressing on the salad to compliment the duck . We shared the Waygu Beef entree , we ordered it perfectly done it was a nice medium pink inside , almost did not need a knife .. this also had fois gras on it .. very nice dish .. the food got surpassed our expectations. Overlook the worn out funky decor and treat yourself to the best French food this side of Paris .

Everyone was very nice and personable. Got there during Happy Hour so there were plenty of choices including small plates that had enough food to take some home. Enjoyed a cocktail and desert. Good all around experience. Would like to return.

Food is always the best. I don’t think I have ever had anything that I wasn’t pleased with. This time I actually ordered something that wasn’t my regular. Soft shell crabs were on the menu and I can never say no to that

Love coming here, have been doing so for years. Always transports you away to feeling like you are on vacation in France at a cozy yet lively restaurant. Great food, service, atmosphere. The mussels are plentiful and the salmon I had was excellent. We are fortunate to have such a great place in Kansas City to feel special and enjoy a wonderful evening! C'est magnifique!

Le Fou Frog is always a great favorite in KC. Creative French cuisine served in an intimate and quirky space provides an unforgettable experience. We go a few minutes early to be sure we have a few minutes to relax with a cocktail at the bar. On this trip, the Veal Osso Buco was outstanding. The service was helpful and collegial. We highly recommend Le Fou Frog.

Funky little place with funky food. We had the best ceviche ever made with halibut. My trout almondine was delicious and my husband's rack of lamb had 7 bones. We had a small cheese plate for dessert with lacey potato chips, sugared almonds, figs, grapes and three cheeses. Our waiter, who has worked there for years, was attentive and friendly. What a wonderful time. The people watching there was good, too.

Our table for 8 was cozy and charming. jean Pierre was our waiter and we find him charming, competent, and amusing. He advised us on the preparation of various entrees and appetizers. Sweetbreads, various fish dishes and steaks were ordered and enjoyed. The chilled melon soup was amazing and delicious. We always enjoy Le Fou, and our out of town guests were quite impressed. A very special occasion for us!
