Food was a bit of a mixed bag this visit with smoked salmon, quiche, and chocolate mousse cake being wonderful and onion soup and frittata being just ok. Malbec by the glass was very good but at $12 each, a bit pricy. Service was on point until our waiter got involved in setting up a table for a large party. I am biased, I like this place, even when everything is not perfect.

Always amazing! There are a few menu items that are difficult to find at other DC area restaurants and even more difficult to find well prepared. La Ferme gets it right every time.

First and last time there. Went for Valentine's Day dinner. They substituted the regular menu for a fixed menu, as I anticipated, but it was extremely over priced and a major disappointment in terms of what was offered. They should have kept the regular menu and just tripled the prices. There would have been a better selection. As it was, the appetizer, a crab cake was mediocre, the dessert, assorted miniature pastries a joke and tasteless. My entree, seafood fricassee was tasty but you didn't get very much seafood. Overall very disappointed. Will not return.

Service was a little rushed until we pushed back the second time. Sole with shrimp mousse was good but a bit under seasoned. Salads were excellent. Great table; love the fireplace and live piano playing. Always a good experience overall.

La Ferme is a pleasant French restaurant w nice ambiance. Lunch menu is varied, offering several fish options and specials. Tables have white tablecloths and a small vase of fresh flowers which is nice. Seating on the porch is very pleasant in the warmer months. Have enjoyed lunch here several times recently, and the food and service have been consistently good.

Le Ferme was a great place to celebrate our V Day dinner. To our surprise we were taken upstairs to a table for two behind closed doors on a balcony setting overlooking the restaurant. It was cozy and private as the doors were closed the whole time. The menu was authentic and they also had a superb wine list. My wife and I had the chateaubriand for two. Cooked to perfection and the potato au gratin was creamy and delicious. Even though we had a potato side with dinner, you just have to order the truffle parmesan fries. Dessert.... the soufflé was out of this world with four different flavors offered. As for the service, we were well taken care of by various servers whom kept the wine flowing. We look forward to going back.

I have not heard of anyone who was disappointed by a special meal at La Ferme, unless they dislike French cuisine. The staff made us feel like special guests from start to finish, and the food and service were perfect.

This is a nice, quiet restaurant for cozy dining with excellent food and service. The price is slightly on the high side but I come here at least once a year and up to three times, mainly for special occasions. There is live piano playing (at least for the Friday evening we were there) playing soft music and accepting requests. The ambiance is quite nice. I would recommend wearing a jacket, pants and perhaps a tie however there are some individuals (who I deem as lower class) wearing jeans -- I do believe in dressing for the occasion.

The below picture is of swordfish steak over mashed potatoes covered with a socatash. Our two dinners and a bottle of wine and one dessert to share was approximately $120 without tip.

All in all, the brunch deal is good with a selection of classic French dishes. Unfortunately, the service was just dire. Our waiter wasn't remotely interested in us and it took a good 10 minutes before we were greeted by our water. The food preparation was really good, e.g. the French Onion soup and the Steak Frites. The soup had a generous amount of cheese but what disappointed was the actual soup itself. Likewise, the steak came out medium rare, as I wanted it but the Bordelaise sauce was not so flavorful.
This restaurant was recommended and I would like to give this restaurant another chance. Perhaps an evening meal.

Wife's birthday brunch. Interesting and calorie-laden menu, reasonably priced for the pre-fix brunch. Fireplace and somewhat cozy atmosphere. Corner table was a little tight for the servings, but the waiter noticed and moved an adjacent table to ours, allowing for a more expansive brunch. Wife said she had been there for lunch recently and wanted to return.

Charming old school French restaurant with live music. The pianist was quite talented and the music added to the ambiance.

The food was quite tasty, not fussy but the classics. The souflee!!!! They aren’t exaggerating when they say it’s the best dessert in town!

Though my husband and I were the youngest by a decade or two, we quite enjoyed this restaurant. They have a new bar area inside, a lovely seasonal outdoor patio and a private room upstairs with room for 16.

We will definitely be back!
