We truly enjoyed the old fashioned ambiance of Les Folies and will return. The cheese plate was just right in terms of variety and amount. My husband enjoyed Steak Frites, with a very nice vinegar based sauce and I loved my Arctic Char with spinach sauce and hope they feature this on future specials. I'd order again. Because this is...

This was our second year at Les Folies for New Year's Eve. What a blast! A great jazz band, dancers from local school performing selections from Cats, dancing, marching around the restaurant after midnight, following a wonderful clarinetist - what more? Oh, the food - marvelous as usual! Reserve early - it's a sell-out!

It's comforting and reassuring when something really good doesn't change. My wife and I hadn't been to Les Folies for perhaps a year, and now I'm wondering why not. The specials are innovative, but the basic menu hasn't changed at all. I had the escalope de veau in mushroom sauce which is a classic and was wonderfully prepared. My wife... More

It's wonderful to return to Les Folies time after time and experience food that is excellently prepared, waiters who know how to serve, an ambience that appears a little old world, yet exudes a vibrant atmosphere and a smattering of surprisingly fun theme evenings. It shows when a restaurant owner is there to greet guests, supervise his long-time and loyal... More

It's been years since we have been to Les Folies. Somewhere in the back of my memory I recall a disappointing experience, though I cannot now recall the circumstance. Recently, as a birthday fete for the Sister-in-law, who dearly wants to visit Paris, we took in a leisurely Parisian style déjeuner. We started with escargot, which were properly garlic-y and...

OK, I read the other reviews, and agree, to an extent. But who wants a lemon drop martini?! ... at a restaurant that is like Paris in the 70's (when I lived there). I love it BECAUSE it is old-fashioned French. If I want cutting edge, I'll peruse Feastly.com, but When I want French nostalgia? Les Folies. We are going... More

My husband and I and another couple had dinner at Les Folies last night. We all have dined there in the past but last night was a huge disappointment. To start 3 of us ordered a Lemon Drop martini which came with salt rimming the glass not sugar. We waited and waited to find the waiter and finally he came... More

We eat at Les Folies for lunch every time we go to the Eastern Shore and have for years. Last Friday was our best meal ever there. Hardly surpising as the place is constantly improving. I had flank steak with a wonderful creamy sauce. The meat was melt in your mouth tender. My wife loves the baked mussels. The service... More

I used to love dining at Les Folies, note the past tense!. My husband and my anniversary is Valentine's Day; perhaps if the maître d'hi and bartender had been sober they would have remembered the reservation for that evening, with another couple. We made the reservation a month prior to the 14th, however when contacted, they said the reservation and... More
