I came here for a thoroughly enjoyable meal. The setting surprised me for how down to earth it was for a French restaurant. The setting could pass for a Mexican restaurant. Extensive wine list. We were served by a French gentleman who was very helpful....More

One of the best restaurants in Kansas City. The atmosphere is perfect: warm decor, intimate, French, great music selection, professional wait staff, and outdoor seating in a lovely tree covered patio with hand-decorated furniture. The owner and chef is from Marseille and his fish dishes...More

Fabulously interesting menu, delicious fare, and wonderful, knowledgeable service. We had a fantastic evening savoring our dinners as we celebrated our 40th anniversary with some of our children. Parking is a challenge, but not impossible. Prices are high but not exorbitant, and reflect the quality...More

Atmosphere was great and service was so-so. The food was above average but also priced well above average. Escargot is worth trying, a little too heavy on the garlic and the snails were smaller than expected. Oysters were presented perfectly, cleaned and shucked nicely. Good...More

Had not visited Le Fou Frog for a few years and it remains the best French restaurant in the area although its good elements, as well as the bad ones, persist. Their foie gras is the best but now it has too many ads on,...More
