Great atmosphere, singers, yummy French food, what's not to love! It was a little pricey, but worth it. I had the veal and it was cut with a fork tender.

Our waiter John Pierre was more than happy to speak French with my 15 year old. She had the best duck she’d ever had and I had kangaroo loin for the first time. We will return.

Wonderful food atmosphere and people. Forget the other French in KC. This is it. Get over your need to be trendy. This place has it all. Our server Joann was a treat. The food is beyond description. Life is short. Eat. Drink. Live.

When we entered the restaurant, I was immediately transported to a friendly neighborhood style cafe in the 7th arrondissement of Paris. Upon entering, you see a classic old-school long wooden Paris bar to the right. We were warmly greeted by Kathleen and promptly seated in...More
