This was our first time at Folium. We thought that lunch was superb. We will certainly be back.

A unique dining experience. Found ourselves eating and enjoying food we would normally avoid. The dishes are wonderful creations, combining ingredients to create mouthwatering tastes and tantalizing textures. Folium is just around the corner from us and it is with regret that it has taken us almost a year living in the JQ to eat here.

The meal was exceptional- very difficult to select a favourite as all 7 courses were excellent. The service was personal, welcoming and attentive without being intrusive. Lovely gesture to present me with a celebratory drink and card for my birthday.As ever, a memorable occasion.

excellent food, dining room a bit noisy - all hard surfaces therefore nothing to dampen the noise. good service but took a while to notice that we wanted to pay and leave. Folium was recommended by my daughter who dined here about a year ago - she loved it but is reluctant to come bck as the menu hasn't changed significantly. I too would want to experience some changes in the menu in order to re-visit.

I struggle to see why in these times we are conforming to some kind of unwritten rule about fine dining environments...food was ace, wine was a bit overpriced, all the delicate touches were superb, but I just don't get why a restaurant feels the overall environment should fall into the very formal pigeonhole. People are past that now. It's old school.

Delicious food but tiny portions. I was still very hungry after 5 cherry tomato-sized courses.

I cannot thank you all enough for making my fiancees birthday meal so special! The food was incredible and the service was excellent. We have been very blessed to eat at some fantastic restaurants over the years but we both agreed that Folium is one of, if not the best, that we have ever had the pleasure of visiting. We look forward to returning soon!

The concept that you are delivering is outstanding in that Customers are experiencing Fine Dining but with a level of relaxation not experienced before.

I don’t know what it was but my last visit wasn’t as good as previous visits, maybe the menu needs an overhaul? I recall several of the dishes were or appeared to be the same? The lamb was most disappointing- you know what a sous vide great piece of kit but it leaves the meat fibrous and chewy - it is not a comment directed solely at Folium- many (most??) high end restaurants use them, all with the same results- needs a rethink. Maybe it was an “off” night and I will go back ( if I am allowed) but I do feel some changes need to be made, sorry.

Amazing night celebrating our wedding anniversary. To be greeted with a glass of bubbly and a card was a nice gesture. The staff were so tentative and knowledgeable about the food. The food was awesome, so unusual and incredibly delicious. We will be back!!

Love the creativity with the food but the first three courses were very light and the two desserts were the filling ones so although the quality of food is there, there’s just a little bit more needed. Nice venue but maybe it could have a statement feature.
