La Ferme disappointing

Went to La Ferme for a relative's birthday dinner and was very disappointed in the food for several reasons. One was that a steak that was asked to be prepared medium ( "no red") came quite rare. This is basic preparation technique and someone wasn't paying attention on a night in which there were few patrons. Another disappointment was that the dover sole was not fresh. A bit chewy and slightly fishy. Sweetbread was good but unimaginatively prepared. Cheeses for desert bland. All in all I found this place to be in a time warp. The dishes were, from what I know of French food, classic French from 40-50 years ago but even so based on our dishes not up to snuff.

This looks like a place where the elderly rich and business people (the few other customers on a Tuesday night) would be quite comfortable but it is not a place for people into food.
