Dependable high quality and great atmosphere, except holiday specials

We dined at 7PM so the restaurant had few patrons and we got a great table. We had not known that we were visiting during "restaurant week" which offers only a prix fixe menu and a limited wine list. Still, the menu represented classic French cuisine, and the quality was good. Service was so-so... read more

When we decide to go to a nice restaurant with excellent food and good ambiance, we pick up the phone and make a reservation at La Ferme. The excellent service complements the surroundings and the food. All of a sudden you start feeling good perhaps because of the oven fresh baguettes and butter you just tasted or because of the...

Classic french menu in an unusual high ceiling interior setting with formal table settings, piano player and all male staff. Salmon and tuna dishes were the highlights. Deserts not to missed include the soufflé. Caesar salad well below expectations.

La Ferme has been a favorite of ours in Chevy Chase for over 20 years. It delivers consistently excellent food in a delightful environment, keeping us returning again and again for special occasions or just a great night out. In all of this time, I can't recall ever leaving the restaurant disappointed. It is close to Bethesda, but set away... More

The food here had a French influence. Service was attentive even though we were in a group of 17. I have food allergies and the staff was more than accommodating to them. I felt that the portion size was adequate, but my husband and son felt they were small..

This is an interesting high quality restaurant. Set in the suburb of Chevy Chase La Ferme has a cozy French feel while being able to seat a relatively large number of guests while maintaining an intimate feel. It seemed like it generally catered for an older customer clientel. We ate upstairs in a private event room. The stair carpet needs... More

This restaurant is off the main streets, in a neighborhood. But the food is very good both for brunch and for dinner. The design style is a bit old fashioned but with the advantage that it is fairly quiet--unlike noisy popular restaurants downtown --so it is actually possible to have a conversation without screaming. This means that the average age... More

This restaurant has been criticized for appealing to a more formal, older clientele (i.e. not a bunch of giggling teens in short shorts and flipflops or 20-somethings looking for happy hour) but it is exactly what my group of 3 was looking for - a nice place for a reunion of old friends who could have conversations without having to...

This restaurant is a mainstay of Chevy Chase. The atmosphere is lovely--upscale rustic, and the food is excellent, traditional French cuisine. A trifle rich, but great for a special occasion.

I felt that the decor of the restaurant was a bit dated, not in a good way... The clientele seem to be a bit stuffy; but I assume that's exactly who they want as clientele. The meal was quite forgettable, I found their French onion soup lacking the depth of flavor that you would expect from this classic soup in... More
