Folly is small and intimate and our meal was outstanding. The host was wonderful in explaining the details of the menu, the specials, and answering any questions. The menu is available online to check for selections/price before you go. Great food and staff.

As a cookbook author, I tend to have high expectations that are rarely met. At Folly Foods, all were met. We tried a number of menu items and all were winners. The food and setting are high-end sophisticated but without pretense, and the prices are...More
