Took my girlfriend there for a romantic dinner. It was a week night and there weren't many people there. We placed our order... thirty minutes went by. I ask the waitress if we could have some bread and salads that we had order.... we got the salads. After we finished the salad I asked the waitress where the food was....... More

A group of friends met here on Fat Tuesday for Happy Hour. The weather was unseasonably warm and we were able to sit on the patio. The staff had decorated for Fat Tuesday; it was festive. Two members of our group loved the foie gras. I loved the salad with goat cheese and the Thai chicken coconut soup. We also... More

Anticipating a romantic dinner for two and some excellent French cuisine, we headed to Le Fou Frog for our first experience. Lighting was so dim that we could not read the menu, let alone see our plates! In addition there was a very loud and raucous group at the large corner table in the main dining area - perhaps a...

Overall the dinner was good and you definitely feel the French-vibe. We had a table of 4 and we ordered 4 different fish dishes - that in itself is impressive! The chocolate mousse dessert was fantastic!

I went to Le Fou Frog at the recommendation of many friends, and was disappointed from the moment I got there. I was 10 minutes early for my reservation to find the door locked (despite the website saying they were open 30 minutes prior for happy hour). I was rudely greeted and given an attitude for arriving early. I was... More

My husband picked this place for his birthday dinner. We both left disappointed. We had a reservation on a Saturday night, and was looking forward to a quiet intimate meal. Well, this is NOT the place for that. We were seated at a tiny table and had a tiny table about one foot away on both sides. It was very... More

A bit out of the way and little curb appeal but GREAT. Dark and cozy small restaurant and Bar. We did all appetizers and loved the portions and sharability. We did excellent fries, cheeses, breads, etc. Dessert was a Christmas Holiday ice cream roll`-outstanding. Service was excellent and food quality top notch.

We first found Le Fou Frog two years ago when we were looking for a place to have escargot on a sunny summer day in downtown KC. We sat on the patio (which is next to the parking lot), ate appetizers, drank a little wine and thoroughly enjoyed the food and ourselves. I've wanted to go back for dinner ever... More

Being a KC native this has been on my wish list for many years. We decided to spend our anniversary here and we were less than impressed. First, service was horrible. Our server left us sitting with only water and menus for almost a half hour. When she finally stopped by she told us that we'd been seated outside of... More
