A wonderful food experience! The special cream of wild mushroom soup was done to perfection with a smooth base and pieces of mushroom. The La Soupe a l'Oignon French baked onion soup with caramelized onions sherry, garlic, Swiss cheese and croutons, gratinée was excellent - the cheese was rich with butter fat and it was the best I have had...

Lunch is always a special trip at Les Follies. The staff and owner make you feel at home and the food is always spectacular. It is nice to find a long standing gem in an area like this. Have been many time and expect to be there many more

If you like fine wine and real French food, this is the only Place to go. Run by a genuine Frenchman and French staff, the food is excellent and served as if in Paris. Great selection of wines and well priced. Ask for Eric and he will let you taste the wines appropriate for your meal.

My wife and I haven't been here in many years as the last time (Christmas Eve about 5 years or so ago) was not a very pleasant time. We chalked it up to a very busy night and as time wore on we thought we should give it another whirl. We went last Friday, made an early reservation, not knowing... More

The parking lot was almost full on a Friday evening. Attentive service. Great tasting greasy liver. Fairly expensive.

Wonderful French regional cooking and a Continental wait staff provide a charming environment, but the centerpiece is the fantastic cuisine. How many raves can I give this restaurant, from the bartender greeting us with "Bon jour" and bidding us a lovely good evening as we departed?And to the knowledgeable and grandly efficient staff-- not with that snooty officious manner of...

I haven't been here in five years, and now I remember why. That said, I will start out with the positives: The decor is nice in that it approximates a brasserie with cuisine advertising prints and French countryside landscapes. Also, some of the wait staff were very pleasant. Likewise, the bathrooms are very clean. Overall, the restaurant with clean as... More

We have been trying to get a chance to dine at Les Folies for quite awhile and we finally made it happen for our anniversary dinner. Now to be fair, we have been spending our anniversary at some truly excellent restaurants (CityZen in DC, Charleston in Baltimore) and I wasn't expecting anything at that level. The food here was quite... More
