Diner Reviews
  • "My friends and I dined at Les Folies on a Saturday night and overall were impressed with the experience. This place is "old school" and that is a good thing. It works on many levels. The only drawback was two of the appetizers, the escargots and in particular the mussels, while adequate in quantity, were very small in individual size. The strengths of the three entrees, however, were readily apparent and the service was attentive yet refined and unobtrusive. I would recommend this restaurant for special occasions."

  • "Les Folies is the place I go for special events that require excellent food. Their food is the best of any restaurant in this area as far as I am concerned. The service is gentle, sometimes a little slow, but extremely pleasant and courteous. My special dish is La Soupe des Poissons. My husband loves their salmon dishes. The wine selection is great."

  • "we are still newbies to Les Folies, but we are always made feel welcomed. Food and service can't be beat, attentive but not obtrusive, you can have your conversation and when you need help, just look up and there it is. Wife love the baked snails and I am partial to the pate... if you haven't been there and near Annapolis, check it out."

  • "I had the soft crab special of the day, and it was outstanding. 4 soft crabs perfectly cooked in butter and lemon, with no breading, just the way I like them. The Malpeque oysters on the half-shell were also excellent."

  • "We had a very nice meal at les Folies Brasserie. The decor was dark and a little dated, but the food was very good and the service was excellent. Our oysters were very freehand the dessert soufflé was light and intensely chocolate. "

  • "The restaurant was very flexible to accommodate our big group (14 guests) and our many changes in our reservation. I have been in many French restaurants in the United States. Les Folies is certainly one of the best one. The menu is very diverse. The quality of the ingredients is unbelievable. They even have Belon oysters (from Maine) ! one of the best French oysters. The service was extremely professional. Finally the price was very reasonable."

  • " This fabulous restaurant deserves its high ratings. The food was delicious , the seafood fresh, and the menu choices both traditional mixed with unique. The outside was a touch deceiving. We felt it looked a bit like a catering hall , but once inside we were pleasantly surprised to be greeted with such a warm and cozy inviting ambiance. Our dinner at Les Folies Brasserie was the perfect place to dine to celebrate our daughters college graduation. "

  • "This place has absolutely marvelous, tasty and well prepared cuisine. The food is consistently good. If you want to dine in a friendly, and romantic setting, go to this restaurant. We have never been disappointed. We've celebrated three birthdays there. We plan to continue going. Delicious, delicious, delicious! Yummy food. I highly recommend this place. Even my grandsons liked the soft shell crabs. They have the best food in the area. We've dined around the world and this is at the top of the list next to one in Venice, Italy."

  • "Very familiar with this restaurant, I've always found the food scrupulously prepared and the service impeccable and friendly. Even though I'm not a favorite of the owner/boss (for telling him that his wine list was not notable), his service women always greet me as though they knew me well and were eager to please. This time I lunched with two old friends from out of town who arrived at 1.30 and who wanted to talk so intently that we didn't leave until well after 3 – the last patrons to leave the place. The staff took the delay with encouraging charm."

  • "The absolutely best filet mignon available in the Annapolis area. The service is excellent and we have never been disappointed with any of the appetizers, entrees or desserts. This is the best dining experience in Annapolis hands down. It is pricey but you get what you pay for."

  • "A friend gave my wife and I a gift certificate to Les Follies in Annapolis. We have lived here about nine years and have passed by the restaurant many times but never visited. We chose to go for a special occasion (our anniversary) and it was simply outstanding. We had an appetizer of shrimp in tomato sauce with black olives and anchovies that was excellent. For our entree, we both chose a veal in mushroom cream sauce. The veal was lightly breaded and fork tender. The sauce was delicious with a generous covering of small sliced mushrooms. The flavor of the sauce and the tenderness of the veal was like nothing I had ever experienced before. Simply exquisite. We will definitely be returning to Les Follies Brasserie. "

  • "When we arrived at our table, there were sparkles spread on the table cloth in recognition of our 52nd anniversary dinner. Les Folies is a very special place. The wine was just right, the food excellent. I had muscles and salad. The muscles were extremely good, better than I have ever had. We had wonderful chocolate moose desert. The service was just right - helpful but not intrusive. We will come back as often as we can. Three cheers for Les Folies!"

  • "We love the welcoming atmosphere, old world charm, and knowledgeable wait staff! Fantastic French wines reasonably priced, delicious meals that keep us coming back. The first courses are all so delicious-the country pate, duck salad, and shrimp in tomato, that is is difficult to choose. The veal is amazing, and hubby wants to order it everytime! He branched out this time and tried the bouillabaisse, and has a new fav!! The frois gras is my absolute fav! Do not miss the chocolate soufflé!"

  • "Everything was absolutely scrumptious. We had the dover sole and the filet mignon. They were both delicious. It was also very nice to be in a filled restaurant but have no trouble at all hearing the person across from you. We could not have had a better experience."

  • "To see it from the outside, one would think warehouse before restaurant. Once you walk inside, however, you're transported to a sidewalk cafe serving great French food: duck confit, ratatouille, coq au vin, etc. This restaurant actually was what turned me onto true French cuisine (no, french fries aren't French!). I even tried sea urchin here! It has its quirks though, namely odd hours and an identity crisis. There have been many times that I've wanted to stop for lunch over the weekend to find the place closed! Even stranger is that they offer lunch Monday-Friday! And their identity crisis? They have a Hawaii Night with a fire eater and hula dancers on the 23rd?? While it may please the crowd, stay true to France and give up the gimmicks."

  • "Just wonderful! It's our favorite restaurant in Annapolis!"

  • "Actually, our party of four wasn't very adventurous. Three chose the same dinner--the ahi tuna. All loved it, and I loved my pasta primavera--especially since it was a garlic and oil sauce instead of the traditional cream. However, everything we had, from salad to dessert and coffee, was excellent!"
    Dined on 3/16/2014
  • "Les Folies can easily fool you into thinking you're dining in a bistro deep in a neighborhood in Paris. The food, service, and ambiance would fit well in the 16th arrondisement, and yet you're minutes from the waterfront of the Chesapeake. All dishes from a menu of bistro favorites are well prepared, disply fresh ingredients, and an experienced touch. The wine list is short, but well represented and reasonably priced. The small but cozy bar delivers well crafted cocktails while also offering an informal spot to dine on the full menu. All-in-all a visit well worth the taking."
