Our lunch was excellent. Each course combining fresh ingredients in an often unexpected manner to make a completely satisfying whole, while still allowing each ingredient to taste very much of itself. Clever cooking well presented and more importantly, delicious.

I could eat triple the amount of the crab / liver snacks.... they are insane. It's the best food we've had in Birmingham (in fact, probably the UK), but with a human, down to earth service and atmosphere. It doesn't feel snobbish, it just feels relaxed and like the team want to deliver the best service possible. Highly recommend!

A nicely decorated restaurant manned by knowledgable, friendly if a little distant staff. The food was of excellent quality, freshly prepared and full of a wide variety of flavours with well matched wine pairings. Overall a nice fine dining experience that I would highly recommend.

The food is easily on the same level as some of the Michelin starred restaurants in the city, and better in some cases. Staff were great. Would have preferred it to be a little busier but appreciate our table was quite late in the lunch service. Will 100% be back and recommending to others.

My wife and I thoroughly enjoyed our dinning experience with Folium. We thought the food was fantastic and the atmosphere relaxed. We were also surprised by the value for money. Its only a shame that we couldn't have a second round.

I really felt the portions were incredibly small (5x5cm potato and 5x5cm piece of wagyu beef only for main course). I'm not new to fine dining and know that dishes are aimed to be relatively petite and balance but I actually went away hungry after the 5 course tasting menu. The food and paired wine was delicious - there just really wasn't enough of it for the price.

One of the best restaurants we have visited in the last few years. Each course was an absolute delight and the staff polite and full of conversation. For my wife and I we agreed that Folium has set the standard in Birmingham for fine dining.

A shame that the bill is brought without chocolates or a finishing touch. I thought the food was delicious, but portions - particularly the amount of bread, was disappointing. I know it’s a taster menu, but compared to others (Adam’s, Opheem, harborne kitchen) portions were not generous enough.

This was my second visit, with friends who like myself travelled to Birmingham from another city specifically to have lunch at Folium, and it was excellent!
