Most Romantic Restaurants in KCMO


Really make an impression this Valentine’s Day by booking one of the most romantic of hot spots in the city. Le Fou Frog is a surprisingly unpretentious pick (even with that name!) where you’ll find the traditional French onion soup with port wine, veal stock, and a topping of gruyere and parmesan cheeses. You will also find foie gras appetizers, braised lamb shank and, of course, escargot. Sometimes the chef will even serenade you.

Bluestem offers a white tablecloth experience and a menu that takes new American cuisine seriously. Set-price tasting menus are a great way to sample some of the chef’s favorites, and they’re known for their “really slow food” – escargot. Traditionally reinserted into shells with garlic butter, they’re a must-try.

Wining and Dining

Piropos is an upscale Argentinian steakhouse with incredible views of the city. Here, you’ll find savory empanadas filled with beef tenderloin, onions, olives, raisins and spices. Try the breaded calamari with pesto aioli, grilled beef medallions with a brandy cream sauce, and for dessert the flan, crème brûulée, chocolate churros and bread pudding promise sweet endings.

Café Trio Restaurant has a live piano, lively ambiance, and the option of a year-round patio that overlooks the plaza. You’ll want to order the small plates to share including crab cakes, caprese with local heirloom tomatoes, bistro filet tips, Cuban flatbread and fried green tomatoes.
