The food, cocktails and vibe were great. Unfortunately no social distancing whatsoever, all tables too close to each other so when it got full, we were about half a meter from other people on each side.

Folie is a great place to hang out and have an amazing meal with great cocktails. Unfortunately there wasn't a lot of social distancing going on so we left promptly

pretty safe and uninspiring menu which is a shame as the room itself was very attractive. They desperately need to sort out the music as well, what was playing for the hour we were there was incredibly gentle / generic lift music meaning everyone was whispering... not the kind of atmosphere that appeals, much more reminiscent of a hotel lobby

Great food and service, had the air conditioning dropping some water on us at one point but the staff went out of their way to fix it and make it up for us. Had a lovely evening and were well taken care of!

This is an unexpected find in Golden Square. The food is packed with flavour and if you're a non meat eater, there's a good selection of dishes to choose from. Staff are friendly and professional and even though it wasn't that busy when we went, the atmosphere is warm and invitingly stylish. I'd recommend!

Our party of four had a fantastic evening at Folie last Saturday.
Food was exceptional with very attentive service.
Couldn't have asked for more.
We'll certainly be back in the very near future.

Unfortunately although we had an enjoyable catch up as a group of friends - it was quite difficult to hear each other as the music was very loud - we asked for the level to be reduced and were accommodated quickly - bit the downfall was that I personally had a violent stomach upset on the way home - you don’t need any more details than that - but it was very unpleasant so I cannot rate the food experience highly

Great venue with friendly a warm staff who gave great service from the moment we arrived. Be prepared for a higher service charge though, but worth it.

The food was exceptional, everyone enjoyed what we had 10/10.

The decor and music too, so so good!
