Diner Reviews
  • "This is a very favorite restaurant so I want them to know that they very much need to train their wait staff! One does not want to be asked to order dessert when ordering your entree! When asked about flavors of the sorbet the answer should not be "I don't know"!! In a French restaurant the service should be leisurely and attentive but not rushed which it was. The service really needs attention as it ruins the enjoyment of the food and the ambiance of the restaurant!!"

  • "We have had many pleasant lunch experiences at La Ferme. The service is always warm and friendly. The last visit we requested a "quiet table" and were seated outside on a sunny warm day. The overhead fan offered a nice breeze and it was quite comfortable. The food is consistently good. It always feels like a special occasion when we dine at La Ferme."

  • "We always enjoy our lunch visits to La Ferme. The 4 of us all chose different things from the menu and all enjoyed the outcome. I started with the special soup of the day, gazpacho which had chunks of avocado in it, then followed with the veal scallopini - all delicious. My husband enjoyed the seafood risotto and we shared the fresh peach cobbler for dessert - also good. Prices at lunch are reasonable, dinner is a little pricey."

  • "LaFerme, as always, was an experience that was fit for a special celebration. The food was superb; having the chef walk the room made it more personal. The service was exemplary, our server remembered us from our last visit. You cannot surpass excellent food, outstanding service, and ambiance both romantic, yet comfortable. LaFeme continues to be our restaurant of choice."

  • "Three of us met for Sunday brunch to celebrate a retirement. All of us had pleasant memories of dining at La Ferme on various occasions: Valentine's Day, Mother's Day, Father's Day, and a 65th birthday party held in the upstairs room. The atmosphere is warm, cozy, and very inviting. The service is attentive and very good; no one had to look around for the wait staff. Someone was always there to refill our beverage of choice. The food was delicious, and so was the presentation. Nothing was thrown on the plate; everything was beautifully placed. A good time was had by all."

  • "I have eaten at La Ferme many times and the food is always outstanding and the service is very prompt and friendly. My mother in law and I both had the salmon and it was excellent. But then all the times I have eaten there I have always enjoyed my meal. I would recommend it as a special place for an anniversary or birthday dinner. I always go there for my birthday!"

  • "My escort has lived and dined all over the world. He has spent a great deal of time in France eating and living. I can give no better assessment than his, "This is one of the best French meals I have ever eaten and certainly the best French meal I have eaten since coming yo the United States.""

  • "Food was great, especially the lobster bisque. We go there for the chocolate souffle, which is great. The service was good except she forgot the coffee with dessert. We ate early and got out before the piano player got too loud. It is noisy when it's crowded and the piano player tries to play over the noise."

  • "Recently on a perfect day, July 18, Friday, I entertained a young, exuberant Serbian family with a 22 months old daughter living in Washington Metro Araa. What a splendid time we had while tasting the food, the wine and having warm conversations. The appetizers we chose were Salad of Mesclun greens, Prince Edward Island mussels, and Cheese platter. And for main meal we chose Marine Lobster and shrimp. Filet of Tilapia and Sauteed Scaloppini of veal. My friends claimed that these were the best food in Washington. To topple it all we had Grand Marnier Souflle for dessert. I would recommend highly to try La Ferme elegantly hidden in a residential area on Brookville Road even on a rainy day."

  • "Congratulations to the chef and kitchen for continuing to produce such high quality food. Two of us had dover sole, grilled to perfection including the little grill marks and excellent sauce. Wine list is quite nicely developed and a bit pricey, but some good bottles at lower 2 digit range. Busboys were also excellent, as is the ever present and charming host."

  • "Everything about La Ferme is charming. It is a nice change of pace from the typical high production, top chef restaurants in the metro area. Good food, simply prepared in a quaint, almost elegant atmosphere at a reasonable price."

  • "No reflection on the restaurant, and it was a Sunday evening at 7:30 during mid-July, but the restaurant was virtually empty which made us feel self-conscious, and we definitely closed the place down. But the food was still great, from the warm bread (I miss the flavored olive oils they used to put on the tables), the tender sweetbreads in a nice, winy sauce, and equally tender and flavorful calves liver, to the gorgeous orange liqueur dessert souffle which we always order (have to order it right at the beginning). Our server, Mirky (sp?), was very nice and professional and didn't seem to be urging us out even though the restaurant was closing. A nice place to celebrate our wedding anniversary."

  • "1) The Lunch menu does not say that there is no lunch served on Sunday. We went there thinking that we could have lunch because we are not brunch eaters. We were told when we asked for the lunch menu that there is no lunch served on Sunday. But the menu on the website does not say that. 2) We ordered a wine on the wine list for a certain price and billed a higher price. We asked the server to correct the error. He told us that the one we ordered was no longer available but were served a pricier Sancerre -without telling us. We paid and emailed the restaurant upon arriving home. They answered back the same day apologizing and indicating that they will credit our card of the difference including taxes"

  • "We go to LaFerme 5 times a year. The food is very good. Sometimes Better and sometimes not as good. The service is Usually excellent. It is a festive place and a very good place to celebrate. It used to be a place for blue haired ladies but no longer. It is a good place For well mannered kids over 10. One can eat plainly or much richer. This time we had the Japanese styled tuna and it was very good indeed. It was my birthday so We splurged with the chocolate soufflé for dessert. All a success."

  • "The New Orleans style decorating was lovely and we were treated with thoughtful service. We were celebrating a birthday, but the celebrant was too shy to mention it. Happy Birthday was sung twice during the time we had dinner. The pianist played quietly throughout our meal, loud enough that you could listen if you wanted to, but could also talk. We would like to return soon to try some of the other items on the menu."

  • "I have an aunt who likes to go to La Ferme every time she comes to town. The atmosphere is lovely and unique for this area- a large charming home in a verdant and quiet neighborhood. We had a very nice evening, as we always do, but the service, while friendly, was extremely slow, even though we arrived before 6 PM and the place was all but empty. Our waiter disappeared for long periods, eventually vanishing altogether. We're not big complainers, nor are we needy clients. But we need our glass of wine within the first 30 minutes!"

Our waiter was not only attentive, but offered suggestions, which were very good by the way, and checked back to make sure that we were enjoying our choices. It became quite busy while we were there, however this did not take away from our service, which was professional and timely. The staff worked well together giving you the feeling that your dining experience was important to them. The food was delicious and well portioned for a french restaurant. We would recommend this restaurant and plan on going back ourselves."

  • "We were at La Ferme for brunch, my husband's favorite meal. We began by ordering the croissants, which were perfect, warm, flaky, and buttery. Both of us were happy with the first course, escargot and mushrooms in a puff pastry for me and onion soup for my husband. He had an omelet for his main course, which he really liked. I was so sad I couldn't finish my delicious chicken crepes with spinach in a mornay sauce. And I had to leave the leftovers as it was warm out and we were going to the theatre from there. But they were the best savory crepes I've ever had. For dessert we both got the waffles with berries in a sabayon sauce. This is one of our favorites here and it is consistantly good. I might have been in Paris."

The food, service, ambiance, and live pianist was spectacular. He even played Happy Birthday for my girlfriend while everyone in the restaurant sang as they brought out our delicious dessert. An overall great restaurant! We will be back for another great experience :-)"
