My family and I dined at La Ferme last year and had quite a good experience. This year was the total opposite. We were seated, without menus. The inexperienced waiters dripped water and coffee all over the table and our laps. The menu was unexciting (out of the four of us, none found a single dish that make our mouths water). The desserts, which Gilles has been famous for in the past, only numbered two, were clearly written on the menu, and neither were exciting. When I asked if there were any specials, I got an incredulous stare followed by a very cold, "No."
After waiting 15 minutes for our dishes to be cleared (while the waiters stood protecting their water urns), we were finally brought coffee. The cream was very curdled and the coffee had grounds in it (both decaf and regular). Gilles was very apologetic, and he "graciously" made a new pot of coffee just for me (not required nor requested, I could have done without coffee entirely). During the wait, he brought us a Creme Brulee as an apology, despite my insisting that we did NOT want dessert. We ate it, while still waiting for my cup of coffee. After finishing the Creme Brulee, I finally asked the waiter to come over and clear off our wine glasses (which had been empty for 30 minutes, and at the side of the table for 15 already).
For the price (it is hard to find a more expensive restaurant in the area), this trip was not worth it. This was my birthday celebration, and I'm really wishing I had requested a different restaurant now.
P.S. The menu listed on the website is completely different than what they are currently serving. Our "Braised Veal Osso Bucco" was more like "Sunday Pot Roast over House-Made Noodles".
