"While the Tavern is connected to a "gourmet" take out establishment next door, the food and menu choices are not great. For a "vibrant" bar scene, there is little to order that you would have as appetizers with drinks. In addition, if you are seated in the bar area, but not at the bar, happy hour prices do not apply to you - not even if you buy the drink at the bar and sit at a table.
The menu needs broader choices - and more "lite fare" in the bar."

"Had never been - will go back. The steaks were excellent - cooked as requested! And the waitress was excellent as she paid attention to special requests and wanted to be sure we were served what we had wanted."

Sur La Place is a cozy, fine dining gem nestled in the renowned Palisades area of Washington D.C. A Product of its' sister restaurant, Mannequin Pis, located in Olney, Maryland, Sur La Places specializes in exquisite Belgian cuisine. With over 20 varieties of Mussels and over 30 varieties of fine Belgian beer, one comes to realize that Sur La Place is not your ordinary restaurant. The menu takes a trip through Belgium, from Grilled Duck Pate or Wild Boar and Cranberry Sausage to a Seafood Bouillabaisse with Gambass, Mussels, Salmon, Sea Scallops, and Lobster. Fantastic desserts and a fully stocked bar put the cap on a great experience. With its exposed brick, deep wood hues, and dark red drapery, Sur La Place is an excellent choice for a romantic date, a business meeting, or simply a fine night out in the city. It's knowledgeable and service oriented staff are always eager to serve you and we look forward to having you as our guest.

"Always a great place to meet friends, have a very good meal, and be served by a delightful staff. Small, neighborhood restaurant - Belgian - so mussels list is extensive - as is the beer list. But something for everyone."

"Staff could not have been friendlier or more helpful and food was excellent. Dining room was full but never had to raise your voice to be heard by those at our table. Would go back again."
