The place is interesting, but the menu comes short of expectations. While the beer menu is close to 40 pages, that is not the amount of beer in stock. The menu is laid out nicely, with categories to help you make your selection. After picking out the beer my party wanted, we found out that none of the ones we... More

Love this place for its beer, food and service! We were in the area for a show and visited with La Trappe for a quick meal before. Small cosy restaurant indeed but with a giant beer menu! We ended up having their charcuterie and mussels - yummm- still thinking about the bread with these 2 perfect combination dishes! And the... More

As Belgians, we had to try this Belgian restaurant in San Francisco. And we were not disappointed. Huge list of Belgian beers. Amazing. Very friendly waiters. Also the food was really nice. We tried the special dish of the day, and really, it was delicious! Fancy food, served in a very nice and original way. Fries were served in a... More

Great place. Sublevel is like a cool dungeon. Serves drafts and over 500 bottles of beer. 45 page beer menu. If you are into Belgian Beers, this is your place.

We were looking to have a decent meal on our last night in San Francisco and chose La Trappe in North Beach as we were passing. The offer was of Belgian cuisine and a massive menu of fine Belgian beers. The main restaurant is downstairs and looks fabulous with red brick and tasteful decor giving a convincing Belgian feel.

Service here is brutal. Their incompetent waitress forgot our order, and we had to wait for over an hour to get two mediocre burgers. We had to go get our own napkins, and we got the silverware halfway through the meal. They also had an annoying photographer there taking pictures of people the whole time.

A beer lover's candy store! We were there right when they opened, so the place was pretty empty. They have numerous taps and a huge bottle list. These guys are serious about beer and I tried several different things I have never had before. The bartender (gut with the beard) was extremely helpful with suggestions. My favorite line of his...

The food was fine, and actually, the sausage dish was really good. The beer list is also pretty good, though expensive for the size of the pours. The 2 star review is 85% because of the service. I saw on both TA and Yelp that this place got bad reviews for service, before I went, but always assume that you... More

We just went a beers, bottled beers were good, service ok. The problem didn’t start until a month later when I looked at the CC bill. Well, it seems like 20% tip was not enough for the bartender. He decided that 35% was a better number for him. I’m one of the few people that look at their restaurant receipt... More
