                                We went early, great service and food. Everyone else was in the bar section so we eat alone. They made us a paper rose (our anniversary). Pricey but worth it.

                                Our waitress and host showed outstanding service the entire night, answering all of our questions about the menu and checking in to see how we were liking everything. The host was also the bar manager, so he was able to answer all questions about the drink menu. The food and drinks were incredible, as was the ambience of the restaurant. We look forward to going back!

                                The drinks are very good. Food is good. Service was terrible. We got one drink and then an hour later food. Our waiter never checked on us . Then we ordered bottle of wine thinking that’s quicker than them making a drink . Nope took forever to get wine. We should of just left. Not a great first experience.

                                They doing an excellent job with the food, the staff is very good. Furnishings a little sparse, but that’s OK. The biggest problem is they got to solve the issue of the door opening in the whole place freezing in the front. - Dual doors are not doing it in cold. And they put tables so far up near the door that you could tell people were uncomfortable in the first four or five tables

                                Great restaurant! We were visiting our son at Purdue and had a wonderful meal at Folie. This was probably our best dining experience so far while in Lafayette. Great variety and fantastic cocktails, we will definitely be back!

                                The restaurant has a sterile environment which is noisy in a large room. Chairs are lined up like a diner. We had a good salad and shrimp as an appetizer. Quite nice. As a main course we had rack of lamb and jumbo scallops. The lamb had a good flavor but the overall portion was very small for a $45 dish. The jumbo scallops appeared to be sliced in half and were watery and not very tasty. Also this portion was quite small for a $35 dish. Overall the experience was just blah for a $159 dinner for 2. We will not go back. There are better tasting and better value restaurants.

                                This was our first experience at Folie and on a night when freezing rain likely restricted the number of diners. We were met with attentive staff and quickly seated. Wait staff including a trainee were knowledgeable about the menu. Our cocktails, appetizer and entrees were excellent and extremely well prepared. Menu had a nice selection. We will definitely be back again.

                                New Year’s Eve dinner with the wife. Had eaten at Folie’s once before and liked the food and service. This experience was no difference, but like many restaurants they seemed to short on servers/bussers.

                                Arrived on time, seated immediately. The hostess was dressed well, very pleasant. Our waiter was dressed for New Years Eve and was very attentive (water kept water full without me asking, and he didn’t interrupt us). We shared a Black Eyed Pea salad and I highly recommend it! I had the Hanger Steak - it was perfectly prepared, served hot, and the presentation with veggies and potatoes was pleasing (even the color of the plate seemed matched). Music wasn’t too loud. The hostess and manager checked on our satisfaction during the meal. My only negative comment would be about the chairs, however it wasn’t such a negative to deter from my review! OVERALL I LOVED THE SERVICE AND THE FOOD AND I WILL BE BACK.

                                Everything was cold…including the hot water for our tea… which I sent back 3 times to be heated up…It was a terrible dining experience …one of the worst I have ever had. The appetizer, mussels, was barely warm…my wife’s trout, which she asked for plain, was so salty she could hardly eat it. My rack of lamb was tepid at best and the rice and raisins were just plain COLD!!! NOT GOING BACK…EVER!!

                                Quite possibly the worst service I have ever experienced. The pulpo appetizer was outstanding, but we were left after that with very messy small plates and no silverware. The one waitress -- for 5 tables, 4 of which had only 2 people each -- disappeared entirely for prolonged periods of time, so there was an extended time between courses. When she did reappear, she failed to notice empty water glasses, lack of silverware, etc. She delivered the wrong entrees to our table -- 2 hanger steaks we didn't order. It was then a long time before the entrees we actually had ordered arrived. The shrimp and lobster ravioli was just barely lukewarm and appeared to have been microwaved. My date did like his trout, though. When the check arrived, the 2 hanger steaks were included on it! The waitress removed it apologetically but that was just kind of the last straw. All in all, way too much money for a substandard and at times just unpleasant experience.

                                Overall we had a very pleasant experience at Folie's. The menu is creative and well presented. The Octopus starter was superb! Other items (Hanger Steak and Lamb) were also perfectly prepared with tasty side dishes. I would definitely go again for the food. Atmosphere is something else. Adding some modern brightly colored wall art to what is now bare walls with a few unattractive paintings would help a lot. Hard metal chairs continue to be an issue. Just ask to be seated along the walls where comfortable padded benches provide at least some of your party with good seating.

                                Very friendly service, albeit it slow (as are most places these days due to labor shortage). Food is interesting and well executed with a fusion of flavors not often encountered. Very good wine list. Would go back.

                                The food was excellent, service was a bit lacking but they were busy so I understand. It took 30 minutes to get menus, but they were super apologetic afterwards. I'd plan to be there for over an hour if you're going to eat there.

                                Disappointing. Based on all the stellar reviews I made reservations for my son’s 18th birthday in August as we were planning to be in town to see him at Purdue. Our reservation was at 7:30 - we were sat at our table 20 minutes later which is understandable if earlier parties are taking a bit longer to finish up. Once we sat, it was 10 minutes before our waitress came over to take our drink / appetizer order and to get water / bread. She was very nice but we didn’t see her again for 20 minutes - our bar order was in the bar pickup area for at least 5 minutes as we had a direct view of it. We then. received our drinks and were able to place our dinner order. Then we waited an additional 45 minutes or so for our meals to come and all the while not really seeing our waitress - near us or in the dining room at all. My son and I both ordered the steak medium rare - both were brought out rarer than rare. I was upset after such a long wait to be given a steak that was essentially raw. The waitress offered to have them cooked some more but I had lost my appetite at this point and declined to have mine cooked more. My son did and his came back edible but really well done on the outside / rare on the inside. My wife had the chicken - one piece was tasty the other had no flavor. We never add salt / pepper to our food when out but this really needed it. I guess this was a really bad night for the kitchen as meals were coming out really slowly and the hosts and wait staff were running around frantically most of the time. The host / manager did remove the steak meals from our bill and she and the waitress were very nice. It was a very disappointing experience, I did note it was a birthday celebration on our reservation but that was not mentioned by the restaurant.

                                Food was very good, overall sense on a busy Saturday night that the kitchen/wait staff was borderline overwhelmed. They did an excellent job given the probable staffing shortages these days, but waits for courses were a little long.

                                My husband and I went for our date night to Folie. His review and my review are total opposites. His food was great. He had the paella and loved it. I ordered the burger medium well but the waitress put it in as medium rare. The server asked me what she could do to make it right, which was nice and they didn’t charge us, but I wasn’t waiting for more food when my husband had his already so I just ate fries.

                                We enjoyed our dinner at Folie. The menu is not very extensive, but everything we had was very good. The atmosphere was quiet, which made it nice for conversation. Our server was friendly and polite. They have an extensive wine list and a lot of specialty cocktails. The desserts were good also, especially the creme brulee.

                                I am Vegan and what I understood from other times I went to Folie was that I can ask to modify dishes to make them a vegan option for me. I asked the waitress to have a sourdough toast with the top of one of the omelets fillings. She could say no, that I was prepared for that with no problem, but she went to the kitchen to ask the chef and returned to tell me that my requirement could be done and when she brought my dish it was a little toast with a big dish price. Also, another thing happened; the moment she was passing me the dish because I was in a booth, a piece of the food fell down over a friend. So it wasn't a good experience for me. I didn't say anything because I didn't want to cause any trouble, but with these messages, it is probable that things can change for vegans customers in Lafayette Restaurants.

                                This was the second time we’ve had dinner at Folies. The food and service were excellent!

                                The service was very good. The food for my husband that is vegetarian was perfect. I am vegan, I had the option to modified 2 dishes and they tasted good, but it would be better if you have some studied and designed vegan options for those that eat like me.

                                We went here for my Mom's birthday, there were 4 of us. We ordered a couple of appetizers in addition to our meals, everything they served was absolutely delicious, we will definitely be back again and highly recommend it to anyone looking for a great experience!

                                Food was delicious and well presented. Wait service was excellent. WIne choices are also excellent and well priced. Negatives are the chairs which are very uncomfortable. Request a table against the wall so that at least some of you will have comfortable padded seating. Ambience is only fair. Presume the intent was a modern simple appearance but they went a bit too far. It would be helped by some bright modern paintings on the walls. Few pictures that are there adds little to the space. Would be great to engage some local artists to display their work in return for exposure and possible sale.

                                We really enjoyed our time here. It was quiet for a Saturday night, but things picked up around 7:30-8. We sat on the other side of the restaurant, away from the bar, so it was more chill. Our service was impeccable — the waitstaff is super friendly and helpful. The food was lovely and the drinks were great. Would definitely come here again.
