I brought my boyfriend here for his birthday. On arrival he was greeted with a glass of prosecco & a card, which made the meal feel extra special. We had he 5 course taster & enjoyed every course. The lamb was the die for! Service was impeccable, not too much fuss but always there to help/advice. Would definitely recommend and would love to come back.

I booked the lunch as a special birthday treat for my partner as part of a day trip to Birmingham. I would say it surpassed our expectations and was an experience we won’t forget. The food was beautiful in presentation and taste, the service was excellent and friendly. My partner is a chef and we are always looking for something new and different to try, I’m sure we will be back next time we are visiting Birmingham.

We had an absolutely wonderful meal at Folium celebrating my daughter's birthday. The personalised service, including a birthday card, made the evening all the more enjoyable. The food was completely wonderful and we really enjoyed the wine pairings. Highlights for us were the smoked eel, kohlrabi, and chocolate dessert dishes. They'll have a star soon (and rightly so!) Get in while you can.

First time in the restaurant and we were VERY impressed. Every course of the lunch menu was genuinely delicious and interesting. The lamb and asparagus main course was exceptional. Sourdough was fab and served warm. Can only think of a few comments for future. One is it would be nice to have more “snacks” these are always fun and interesting and we only had one. And more wine options by the glass or a wider selection of bottles at a lower price would be great. We loved the experience though and will be back to try the full tasting menu one evening.

The Folium stands out from the increasingly crowded fine dining scene : innovative, delicious creations that will have you wanting more. I'm surprised that it has remained unstarred as I would place it in the same category as the Fat Duck.

I've eaten in may "Michelin Star" restaurants over the years and this was at the top of that league. We had the 5 course tasting menu and it was beautifully presented, so full of flavour, excellent service and great value. We can't wait to return.

Incredible food with amazing flavours. As it was my first time I didn't mind this but my sister has now visited 3 times and recieved the same menu each time, maybe something to consider. Overall amazing

Fantastic. All of it! We were celebrating our anniversary (and so I needed to choose carefully!). The food was excellent - every course hit the spot. Service was very warm and personal - with a glass of bubbly and a card when we arrived. Thanks to the Folium team for a special evening.

Great meal for partners birthday, really delicious tasting menu. We went for an early lunch so restaurant hadn’t livened up yet, perhaps louder back ground music, to be turned back down as more diners arrive. Staff friendly and knowledgable.
