Made our Mother's DayMom is 95 and has always loved all things French. The staff was so gracious with her. As soon as the maitre d saw us, he switched us to a table in an area without steps. The restaurant is designed to look like a large provincial farmhouse; very lovely, and so evocative, she began speaking in French half way through the meal (she is not French and I haven't hear her speak it in almost thirty years). The three course prix fixe meal was delicious and interesting. Mom raved with almost every bite. When my husband found an error on the check, the owner came to our table, apologized, and comped every extra item on the check. Only drawback: If you stay downtown, and don't have a car it's, it's an almost eight mile cab ride.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMFabulous French Find!This was our first time at La Ferme and we had a wonderful experience. The menu was varied and we each had something different, so I was able to get a sense of many dishes. There was not a "miss" amongst them. The spring vegetable terrine was especially fresh-tasting and beautifully presented. An older guest found the NY strip steak tender and flavorful, and the veal was artfully done and seasoned beautifully. Desserts were superb: chocolate and marzipan Charlotte for me, and the others dishes, all light and flavorful. And the ambiance is lovely! A beautiful setting for a beautiful meal. One little quibble: our wine bottle was set away from the table and our server was not as assiduous as we would have liked. But we will return!5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMOne can always count on goodOne can always count on good food and excellent service. We love LaFerme for special evenings.5/12/2013 12:00:00 AMGraduation DinnerPerfect place to celebrate my son's college graduation! It was very special evening for all.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMBirthday bashWe had a delicious meal at La Ferme with tasty appetizers, especially the cold asparagus soup and nicely prepared seafood entrees. The highlight was the dessert souffles, served w/a candle for one us as the staff had observed us raising our wine glasses in a toast earlier - nice touch!5/5/2013 12:00:00 AMMake sure to order a souffleMake sure to order a souffle for dessert. They are fabulous! There were five in my party (all family) so we each tasted each others food. Everything was good. I thought the mussels were a bit overcooked, and would have like more snails in the escargot. I would definitely go back; the ambiance is wonderful, and the service was great.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMWe really had a nice timeWe really had a nice time at La Ferme. Great french food, and a real French Maitre'd4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMOn a lovely evening for diningOn a lovely evening for dining al fresco, we often gravitate to nearby La Ferme, which again did not disappoint. The patio is among the most pleasant in the area, service was efficient, and the food is traditional French fare and very good. We have brought our teenage sons there for special occasions, and they gobble up the fresh baguettes, snails or onion soup, Caesar salad, and bistro steak. Yes, there are many graying heads in the restaurant (though not on the patio), but the ample parking lot is a feature appreciated by all ages.4/27/2013 12:00:00 AMLovely Celebration at La FermeWe had a lovely dinner at La Ferme to celebrate my husbands birthday! The food & service were both excellent ! All the staff sang happy birthday to him! We even got a free tasting to SugarLoaf mountain Winery! Great night overall!4/24/2013 12:00:00 AMItwas our first time at LaItwas our first time at La Ferme and it was absolutely amazing! We went for date night (my husband and I) and they made us feel welcome and we had a wonderful time, definitely going again!!4/20/2013 12:00:00 AMThe setting is beautiful,The setting is beautiful, the souffles are to die for, the main courses and appetizers are usually very well done. Never had a bad experience (except for the service a couple of times, which can be quite slow when the kitchen gets backed up.) But one doesn't go to La Ferme for a quick meal, but rather a relaxing one. So if you go with that attitude,slow service isn't the end of the world and the experience is wonderful. We love the place.4/13/2013 12:00:00 AMMost excellent evening asMost excellent evening as it was our 20th wedding anv. The wait staff and chef were outstanding and the food was exceptional. Having spent many years in the European Theater (Germany, Italy and Belgium) you have created an enviroment that made us feel we back leaving across the ocean.
Thank you very much, we will frequent your place in the future.

All three of our group felt the restaurant was even better than we remembered. Just Excellent in all respects!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Prix Fixe menu for EasterThe Prix Fixe menu for Easter Sunday seemed a little expensive, but the food was delicious and the experience was very enjoyable.3/31/2013 12:00:00 AMWonderful, classic FrenchWonderful, classic French food in an inviting atmosphere. The menu changes enough to keep you coming back, but there are always the classics that you count on. Most of the wait staff have been there for years and they know just how to pace you through a meal - there when you need them, not hovering when you don't. Our Easter dinner was perfect - everything you would expect to be on the menu with the twist of a delicious seafood pot pie brimming with scallops, shrimp, fresh peas and pearl onions. Don't miss this unpretentious, but excellent classic!3/31/2013 12:00:00 AM+: Food overall was good,+: Food overall was good, service good enough but not overbearing
