    Always excellent food and beautiful. Staff is pretty arrogant for some reason. This was maybe our sixth time there in the last year and while I don’t expect a red carpet I also think it’s good practice to make people feel welcome and not act inconvenienced when a customer asks to place a drink order before ordering the entire meal. The managers themselves seem attentive but the wait staff isn’t very friendly. We’ve noticed this each time and with different servers. It is a great restaurant and I’ll be back but my advice to management is to let the wait staff know it’s better to smile a bit and not act so put out.

    Before going to Folie and as soon as arriving I informed them we were celebrating a birthday and they assured me that they would add a candle on our desert. They completely forgot and ruined the moment. Also, the noise was much stronger than the music from the DJ, thus disturbing the ambiance. The food was super delicious ,however overall experience not great and would not visit again.

    The interior including the bar is very nice and ambience good. Feels bright and fresh.Service was also good and attentive. But I thought the food was underwhelming for the location and interior. My lobster salad was basically a huge bowl of lettuce with a few bits of lobster with the odd tomato and some sliced avocado and a bland dressing. It felt as though it had been prepared in one minute. I can prepare something a lot better... I have never seen so much lettuce . So the food would stop a return visit.

    I went to have a farewell meal with two friends. As soon as we arrived we left like we were not the type of people wanted there. The waitress was very rude and made us feel very unwelcome. Then to top it off it was £6 for a Diet Coke. And the prices were outrageously expensive. Sadly we had a terrible meal and decided to have dessert somewhere else since we were made to feel very unwelcome.

    We had a reservation for 7:30pm. We were told we could only have the table until 8:45. From the moment we were seated at 7:40 we were rushed to order, being asked 3x in a matter of 8 minutes. Our meal was rushed and immediately at 8:45 we were ejected from our table. This was a work/friendly meal. The person we were having dinner with runs the biggest company of its kind. He is you g so we figured he would like the ambiance and music at Folie. It was in very poor taste how the manager and staff behaved and we will not be dining there again. Further, I will make sure to share with friends in London how distasteful the service there was. I do not recommend this establishment as most will generally give you 2-2.5hrs at a table not 1hr 15min. It is truly laughable!

    FolieResponded on 14 October 2021Dear Guest, We apologies you didn’t find the service enjoyable. The table you booked being not to your taste, we offered an option with a limited amount of time, as it was rebooked afterwards. Given that you agreed to this deal, we are sorry to hear that it didn’t go according to your expectations. This is not the experience we wish to offer to our guests at Folie. Please send your details at lt@folie.london, I would like to investigate this matter further. Best wishes, Laurel, General Manager

    Lovely supper with charming service. Feels like a taste of Monaco. In Soho! To be hyper- critical the spaghetti with clams was only adequate but it takes an Italian chef to really do it well. Loved the tuna tartare and and the chicken paillard. The menu is on the pricy end of the spectrum which maybe is just how things are after lockdown - we are all so grateful to be dining out that we don’t complain about it … yet!

    Croque monsieur felt like pretty poor value for money, don't mind the price but it was like like the size of an iphone with the crust cut off. Don't mean to come across as cheap but the bread basket for 1/3 of the price was waayy more generous. Niceoise salad looked good but nothing to write home about. Great terrace otherwise and nice staff.

    The staff were very welcoming and their knowledge of wine was excellent. There didn’t appear to be a lot of organisation so we were looked after by multiple people throughout the meal but that added to the charm for us; it had a Franco-feel and I love that. I was a little disappointed by my main meal. I ordered the Dover Sole, which at £48 was (I think) the most expensive main meal choice. It was one of the two Fish of The Day so did not appear on the menu, as such I have no complaints about the price, in principle. However, it came with no sides and by the time it was de-boned (I will learn the craft myself one day!), it was cold. Upon reflection, £48 for a small piece of cold fish without any sides is a touch unreasonable. My wife ordered the steak and was not given the option of how it was to be cooked. This may have been because Chef makes the decision, which I have experienced at other restaurants. Again, no real complaints because if that was really going to be an issue, I’m sure the staff would have happily obliged our request for it to be cooked to a different level. The choice of wines was vast (not a bad thing!) and, as mentioned earlier, the knowledge of the staff was excellent. I described my preference of wine by taste and not name, which was enough for the highly-knowledgable Waiter to suggest two perfect wines. I cannot praise the chap highly enough for this. We had two excellent cocktails and I recommend the Old Fashioned. The flavours were perfectly distributed and balanced from start to finish; not always easy with this drink. I was a little disappointed with my main but it will not be put me off giving the restaurant another go. Sometimes you get a vibe from a restaurant that it has a bit more to offer and this is one of them. A little disappointed? Yes. Put off entirely? No way. Naturally, the inside of the restaurant was closed but walking through it I was blown away by the decor - it was so stylish.

    We were 15 late for our booking- I called over and over again but no response. So we were made to wait 35 mins standing in the cold before another table which mean that we didn’t have time to finish our meal! There are no heaters outside except for 5 tables
