Traditional French cuisine. Superb quality and very friendly staff. Somewhat expensive, but well worth the money. Such a relief to have sauces with depth to them and also not to be rushed over your food. Only visiting Annapolis for a couple of day, but if we come back this will be top of our list for dinner.

The vichyssoise really needs something -- more chives might help. The calamari were superb, just the right amount of garlic and nice and crisp. The escalope de veau was tasty, though.

I had a business guest visiting and wanted a great environment for a business meeting with great food. We were not disappointed! Wine, Escargot Calf's Liver, Veal Steak were all excellent. Service was attentive but, not at all pushy or hurried.We will return.

Traditional French restaurants were once the gold standard of fine dining. With our passion for new cuisine, ethnic cuisine, fusion cuisine, etc. French has taken a back seat in recent years. A visit to Les Folies reminds us why French cuisine still has so much to offer. The atmosphere of the restaurant is wonderful, like a visit to a Brasserie... More

The food was phenomenal, the atmosphere homey yet sophisticated, and the service was professional. I had my favorite—snails—salmon with ratatouille, chocolate mousse cake, and tea. The snails and cake were superb. With tip it was $61—well spent, I might add. The crowd was overwhelmingly couples in their 40s-60s; many were regulars. I arrived before 6:00 p.m. My waiter had worked... More

Absolutely adore this restaurant! Such a very friendly place, with owner's lovely welcome, and delightful menu! Now that I live in Florida, I wish often of a marvelous lunch there. Service is exceptional, too. May plan a trip northward just to dine there. Perfectly great times there--hope you discover the same!

Been going here for years like so many Annapolitans. This restaurant offers high quality and so very french meals. The food is always reliable, from the escagot to the duck confit. to the liver and onions or the fresh fish of the day. You are made welcome here, and soon feel at home. It's like visiting family overseas..

Absolutely the best I have ever had. This was the first restaurant I tried Foie Gras and years later, I keep coming back for it.
