We had the 7 course taster menu and the food was absolutely wonderful, from preparation to presentation and each course was one delicious experience after another. The service was second to none and the staff were very professional and friendly. I would highly recommend this restaurant.

The menu on the evening we dined was almost entirely fish, which was a shame.

Absolutely wonderful meal and staff. We were the only ones there presumably due to the Coronavirus outbreak. I wish you luck in getting through this and I hope we will be back.

I really enjoyed my evening at Folium. The service was really good, the food was excellent and the dinning room was a lovely place to sit and talk.

Parents came here for my Father's birthday. They had a wonderful time and coolant stop talking about it afterwards. The wagu steak was a favorite course of my Dad's and they would recommend it to anyone

This was our first visit and for my sons birthday. He is a grown up! Lunch on a Friday and at 1pm the first people in the restaurant. That’s a shame because the food and experience was awesome. Great staff, nice balance of attentive and informative without ever intruding. We had the fixed lunch and the cheapest red on the list. All excellent. Both of us eat out a lot and the food was the best we’ve had in some time and restored our faith in outstanding cooking. Hate to say but some of the Michelin starred places around the UK haven’t been as good. Enjoyed discussing the awesome sourdough because I also bake and got some good tips but again each dish was balanced elegantly with taste, texture and temperature (yes they play with temperature) no dish failed in anyway. Hugely recommend just so they do brilliantly and I can keep going back.

Delicious intricate food and wonderful wine pairing. Attentive, enthusiastic and well informed waiting service. Second visit ... will be back! Wish they had more people there to appreciate what is a really great restaurant. Make the trip!! You won't regret it!

A lot of friends had really hyped this place up and it well-deserved the praise.This is truly excellent food which is crafted to perfection in a laid back setting. Brilliant attentive staff (but not suffocating), really welcoming without the stuffiness. Delicious wine-very important. The chefs are doing some phenomenal work and it’s the best fancy dessert I’ve had(often a bit of an anti-climax on a menu), Cobnut chocolate mousse wizardry indeed. Go for either lunch or dinner-you won’t be disappointed. Great vegetarian menu as well!Thanks Folium, we’ll be back.

I have downgraded the value for money because of the wine prices. Whilst recognising that your brand isn’t about cheapness a few more bottles in the £20 range would have been good, particularly for lunchtime. Otherwise the food was brilliant and the service was attentive, well informed but not obtrusive. Well done all.

One of the very best meals we’ve ever had. Every course was superb and very difficult to pick out a winner. Service was great too - someone was at your side exactly when you needed them but there was never any intrusion. Cracking wine list too. Would highly recommend Folium. Now where are those Michelin stars?

One of the best meals I have ever had. I took my husband for a 40th birthday meal having read amazing reviews and it did not disappoint. Service was outstanding, food was outstanding....... this restaurant deserves the reputation it has. Amazingly good value for 7 courses (which actually turned out to be more like 10), and will definitely return.

Not one to usually make sweeping or effusive statements, Folium does make me break my norm - it is our favourite restaurant in Birmingham. The food is always very imaginative both in superb flavours and beautiful presentation, and the atmosphere smart yet relaxed, warm and welcoming. We are repeat customers and highly recommend that everyone else should be too.
