Annapolis is a wonderful little restaurant city and Les Folies is our favorite. Not only is it convenient to our motel, but it has ample off-street parking. It is housed in a non-descript building - in fact we ignored it for several years because it didn't seem attractive. A big mistake. Inside is a pleasant decor with lots of wall... More

Les Folies Brasserie provides authentic French atmosphere. Starting with the maître d’, continuing with the décor and the menu and ending with the waiters attitude. The dishes we had – Le Portabello Maison, Le Pate De Campagne, Le Foie Gras Frais Sauté Aux Pommes Et Son Jus, and Le Coq Au Vin were all excellent. Recommended.

This is my favorite restaurant in Annapolis. I have been there multiple times for various celebrations and the good of everyone out our tables each time has been excellent. I wish there were other Annapolis restaurants of this caliber.

Well-reviewed, Les Folies is a stand by traditional french bistro. Due to it's location, which is on a strip of gas stations and fast food places, expectations were fairly high, especially based on a number of reviews from various sources. So, we were meeting 6 people. Upon arrival, 4 others had just arrived. So we waited for the other 2.... More

We tried this restaurant on a cold day when French food sounded comforting. The menu was filled with classic French dishes with a few specials. One, the Boston clam chowder, was filled with delicately tender clams and tiny dice of cooked potato (a refreshing change from the huge hunks of potato one often gets in clam chowder) but the stock...

We hadn't been to Les Folies in more than a year, and it is nice to know it still is one of the best restaurants in the area. I started with the cream of split pea soup and it was delicious. For my entree, I decided on the filet mignon. I normally don't order steak in a restaurant, but I... More

We truly enjoyed the old fashioned ambiance of Les Folies and will return. The cheese plate was just right in terms of variety and amount. My husband enjoyed Steak Frites, with a very nice vinegar based sauce and I loved my Arctic Char with spinach sauce and hope they feature this on future specials. I'd order again. Because this is...

This was our second year at Les Folies for New Year's Eve. What a blast! A great jazz band, dancers from local school performing selections from Cats, dancing, marching around the restaurant after midnight, following a wonderful clarinetist - what more? Oh, the food - marvelous as usual! Reserve early - it's a sell-out!

It's comforting and reassuring when something really good doesn't change. My wife and I hadn't been to Les Folies for perhaps a year, and now I'm wondering why not. The specials are innovative, but the basic menu hasn't changed at all. I had the escalope de veau in mushroom sauce which is a classic and was wonderfully prepared. My wife... More
