We were left standing near the door until we said "we have a reservation". Secondly, when I asked for more sauce for my dinner choice, the waiter returned and said "the Chef... More

I generally have lunch at La Ferme and have not had a sandwich I don't like! If you like burgers, the Bizzo Burger should be at the top of your list!
