Chef / owner Tatsu Arai first opened a French pastry and luncheon shop in 1980. Customers soon hungered for more and the menu and hours were expanded to include dinner. Consistently excellent food and warm and gracious service has earned Tatsu’s the Zagat’s prestigious top 40 award and a ranking as one of the top five restaurants in Kansas City.

French classics such as Beef Bourguignon, Saumon Poche/Meuniere, Escalope de Veau au Citron and a delicious Pureed Carrot Soup grace the menu. The house salad dressing and teriyaki sauce are such customer favorites that for years they have been available to take home from the restaurant.

Tatsu’s is the perfect place to celebrate an anniversary or special occasion and a recently opened private dining area can accommodate larger gatherings and banquets. The quality of the cuisine, affordability and attentive service has created a loyal following of patrons who dine regularly at Tatsu’s.

    Such a unique place to eat. It is not too formal but still fancy. Food is delicious and different than what you can get at most places. It really isn't much more expensive than going to an average steakhouse. Service was also great. This is my second time going and it was just as good both times.

    We really enjoyed our meal. Food was great, as was the service. I highly recommend the grand marnier souffle for dessert, you gotta order it with your meal, not after you are done so they have enough time to make it. It was amazing! It was a pretty calm, quiet atmosphere.

    Tatsu's French Restaurant is one of the most consistently great places in Kansas City. Their menu is not extensive, but everything they offer is excellent. If you like dark meat chicken, try the Lemon Herb Chicken with thigh meat. It is absolutely wonderful!

    We went for Mother's Day. It was a happy time. This is a bit of a difficult place to describe. This is a French restaurant with an Asian staff. A perfect blend of cultures. If you are used to "American portions" you might be surprised. The portions were more European or Asian. The food was well prepared and delicious. Wine selection is limited but what we had was great. The dessert was a work of art. The restaurant itself was simple but elegant. It's definitely worth a visit

    This was our first time ever at Tatsu’s. It’s a guarantee we will be back! Food was excellent. Service was friendly and not pushy. The pacing was just to our liking. The ambiance and clientele made us feel like we belonged there. When they had run out of the dessert of our choice, the Chef even came out personally to apologize. It’s just one of those restaurants that gets everything right!

    We had an amazing first experience at Tatsu's recently! Some good friends of our who are fellow foodies recommended it and we decided to give it a try. We are so glad that we did! It is a beautiful restaurant that it perfect for special occasions but would probably still be a good place to go for a more casual meal. The service was spectacular! Our server was very attentive and made some terrific recommendations! The cocktails and wine were perfectly paired with our meal and the food was delicious! In addition to some wonderful appetizers and entrees, they have some incredible dessert options too! We definitely plan to return!

    The food was excellent and our waiter was top notch. Our only issue was there was no host or hostess to check us in for about 5 minutes,, but the wait wasn't the issue. The service staff passed by the host/hostess booth several times, looked at us, and didn't say anything to us. Not even one "we'll be with you momentarily or anything". We don't mind waiting, but please don't pretend that we are not there and waiting to be seated. The food was awesome though, would still go back.

    Tatsu’s has been my special place since 1983. Great food, atmosphere and staff. The poached salmon and veal are 5 Star entrees. It is located in a residential neighborhood which makes it a great spot for special occasions or impressing a date.
