Great atmosphere, great service by dedicated servers, great food. The steak was good. Don't go there if you are a vegetarian, as one of our party members was. There is no vegetarian plates on the menu and the chef had little creative imagination for his entree...other than that they have a great bar!

All three courses -- salad, steak and bread pudding dessert were very satisfying; service was prompt and pleasant; setting is lovely. What's not to like?

This is an old school and old money kind of place. We love it, but it's not inexpensive. The steaks have been very good, cooked as we asked, and hot when served. The service is great. You can even have a private dining room for just the two of you at no extra cost! They also have a piano lounge... More

Service, Staff, Location and the food are all 5 star. Even the bar is an enjoyable place to sit, relax and have a drink with friends

Just like the title says, Folk's Folly Prime Steakhouse is good but it just isn't good enough for the price. If you read my other reviews, you will find the steak restaurant that I compare all others to and Folk's Folly just isn't in the running even though the price is about the same if not a little higher. There... More

Folk's Folly should be a great place to dine. I keep returning, thinking this time they will get it right. It has all the "right stuff" until you start eating. Great atmosphere, check. Great cozy, dim piano bar, check. Great menu selections, check. Deliciously prepared, high quality food, WRONG. I mean that is the whole point of giving your hard... More

We took some business guests to this restaurant and were very disappointed and embarrassed. Out of 7 people, four of us had to send our entree back. One of the problems was burnt lobster tail served with a fillet that was one of their specials that night. It's really sad to see a nice restaurant go down hill so badly.

My wife and I went here for our anniversary. I was a bit taken back when I asked if they could do something special since it was our anniversary. They said "Of course, we will put balloons at your table and you will get a free caramel cake." Balloons??? I thought I would give it a chance. I had been... More
