Sur La Place seems to be a nice neighborhood restaurant on Macarthur Boulevard, well outside downtown DC. There is no subway nearby, so you have to rely on the bus or a car to get there. My partner and I had dinner there on a Sunday night, so there were few people in the restaurant. It took a while for us to get menus and water, but the young lady took our order efficiently. However, our soups (I decided on the vegetable and my partner ordered the lobster bisque) and my partner's peach beer arrived later than I expected. Our main course (boar sausage with red cabbage and carbonade flammande with some of the best frites I have ever tasted) arrived rather slowly, and getting the check after the meal took some doing. Et Voilà,the other Belgian restaurant across the street, serves great food, too, but it is much too salty and the portions are small. Sur La Place's servings are much larger; my partner remarked that his carbonade, which he has eaten at both restaurants, was much better here, wasn't as salty, and the frites here were superior. My sausage was very juicy and the red cabbage had a hint of sweetness coming from the port wine reduction. Our first experience here was good, but don't come here expecting a quick meal because you won't get it. You will get well-prepared food but the service needs a little help.
