Lupo Restaurant & Vinoteca
I’ve ordered a bottle of red wine in the price range of $135 but was recommended by the waiter to try another one which costs 80% more. I finally ordered one, also recommended by waiter, at 40% more.
My experience at other restaurants is that waiters or connoisseurs usually make recommendations at a similar price range. So this is pretty unusual and put me at an uncomfortable position.
Went for hubbys birthday. Did not disappoint. Great service and great food.
Wonderful food, presentation and service. Highly recommend.
Service and ambiance are amazing. I've only dined there once but the food was very good. Have to try it again to get a better take on the cuisine.
Mo and staff are amazing this restaurant never disappoints!!!
We went for our 25th anniversary and enjoyed not only a divine meal, but the best, most thoughtful server ever!
Although we live in the Seattle area, we have been coming to Lupo for almost 25 years.
We totally loved this restaurant. It was our first time there and we felt like we scored...great food, excellent service and a lovely space. The next time that I am in Vancouver I will definitely return to Lupo.
I could take a bath in that truffle + creme sauce ❤️ Excellent service
Have reviewed this restaurant before about a year ago but we went back and it is still outstanding. There were five of us and we liked it so much, we came back the next night. Something for everyone and every dish and every appetizer was outstanding, as was the service.
Only negative would be that wine list is kind of pricey.
After an event at Queen Elizabeth. It always feels like a special occasion here! Amazing cooking using top ingredients. Caring service and good looking patrons make it
a lovely evening out!
We were happy sharing three fabulous dishes. Consistently excellent.
What a great find. Food, service, ambience at 5-Star level. Must go when in Vancouver, but don’t overwhelm this masterpiece.
We had a fabulous dinner before a concert. The server gave suggestions and we told him to bring whatever he thinks is good. Great food and great ambience.
My wife and I went for my birthday. Service was excellent, ambiance perfect, food wonderful! What more can I say?
I was seated in the corner of the second floor in front of the big LG TV, I have another table behind me which make the other person and myself very hard to sit comfortably. Please modify the table spot accordingly.
As always, we had a great evening at Lupo last Saturday after seeing the matinee of Book of Mormon. We always start with the Wagyu beef carpaccio because it’s so delicious. We tried the appetizer meatballs and loved them. For our entrees we had the mouth watering ribeye and ravioli special which was stuffed with braised short rib meat.
Happened upon this restaurant on our first evening in Vancouver. Luckily, we were able to be seated quickly without a reservation on a Sunday night but I doubt that is always true. We had a wonderful meal with equally wonderful service and a lovely table looking out into the "porch area". We decided to spend our last evening dining here because we didn't want to chance a different restaurant. We weren't disappointed, it was everything we had discovered the first time. We are glad that we made reservations through Open Table as the restaurant was busy with a couple larger groups.
I found this restaurant when I looked up restaurants close to Queen Elizabeth Theatre because we were going to a play and wanted to make a night of it. Boy did we pick the right place. The ambiance, food and service was fantastic. Will be back for sure!
Ate here on 24th Sept with my family after arriving back in Vancouver following 3 week tour. The food and service was excellent, with good local & international wine selections. Great choice on menu as well as daily specials. Cannot recommend highly enough for food lovers looking for good food in quiet atmosphere in converted old 20th century property.
Our food was delicious and service was wonderful. My dad wanted beer and they went out and got Peroni for him. It was a treat. Thank you!
Food was excellent....Service was good but we all found the waitress very cold. Ambiance was great and a nice place for a special occasion. A little pricey but a great experience.
Best Italian food I've ever had. Very authentic and unique compared to most Italian places. We had the signature foccacia bread to start as well the the burrata cheese with fresh vegetables. Both were amazing. I specifically never had burrata cheese before and it was absolutely an experience. For mains I had the daily special which was a truffle fettucini with a light butter sauce I think and my girlfriend had the veal and spinach canneloni. Both very different dishes, but both fantastic. The fettucini was very light, but had a very smooth and unique taste, it was the best pasta I've ever had. The canneloni on the other hand was cheesy and hearty, but the sauce was very unique as well and it was very tasty. We absolutely loved this place. It is quite expensive, for the food mentioned above as well as two glasses on the cheapest rose (about $12 for a glass) our bill came to almost $120. I would never pay that much for dinner on a regular basis. However, this is truly the best quality Italian restaurant in Vancouver and for a special occasion I absolutely recommend it!
This was an overall great experience. Appetizer was the octopus, very light and flavorful. First course was the seafood ravioli. It had a light reduction sauce and you could taste the lumps of seafood in the pasta. Third course was the elk and the fettuccini with truffles. Both were delectable. The appetizer took thirty minutes to come out, so be prepared to wait. But the service was very friendly and knowledgeable about their menu.
Great intimate old home with very good food. Unique venue with old world charm.
Great food , great service and very nice room . It was pricey but that's what I expected .
Great time on our 48th anniversary. Food was fantastic and service was excellent. Irish Mathew was a great waiter!
Lovely restaurant-great food and attentive service. Thank you!
Pleasant. Some food excellent, some sparse and slightly undercooked ( salmon ). Excellent service. Very pricey
Our burrata appetizer was outstanding! Our veal main course with accompanied vegetables was delicious! We found it odd that there was an extra cost for bread. Extra touches such as gelato in between courses and bread to start without an extra cost could make the experience outstanding! The service was good.
First time visiting Lupo. Had a guest from out of town. It was spectacular. Can’t wait to return.
It is a beautiful place with tasteful décor and ambient. The food is very nice and prices are reasonable. But the real asset to your restaurant is Mauricio - he is amazing. Professional and helpful and in the same time with a very lovely sense of European humor that just made our evening perfect! Thank you Mau, we loved the "Costco" tiramisu, baby spoons and other jokes- you made our dinner awesome and fun indeed!
I love to come to this restaurant whenever I visit Vancouver. The food is outstanding the service is friendly and warm and attentive. Very special place.
This has become a favorite restaurant. The food is upscale without being fussy and pretentious. The service is never less than very good. Not cheap, but there is value for money and I do not hesitate taking out of town friends and colleagues for a reliable and good dining experience.
Very nice service. Second visit. Salad and lamb shank were excellent . The red haired Waitperson was amusing and delightful. It was our daughters birthday and they made it special.
The food was well presented but my dishes lacked flavour, the octopus and the duck. My husband had the sable fish and that was tasty as well as the salad with the imported cheese from Italy. The desserts were okay but nothing out of the ordinary and were rather small. I did not like where we sat, it felt like a hallway with the constant traffic to and from the kitchen. I did not like the table without a table cloth, was not cozy! Overall, I found it to be quite expensive and would not recommend this restaurant.
We had a booking by 8.45pm. But we got our table only by 8.55pm (10mins later). Since there were quite a few people waiting, it was difficult to stand and wait. There were 10 people waiting to be seated for their booking including us, but only two waiting seats available. Food was good. But when asked for recommendation for what’s good in pasta, the waitress wasn’t very much helpful in giving us suggestions that would help me.
What I loved best was then accommodating our request for a seat by the window, giving us a good recommendation for the wine and checking on us if we liked our dinner. Overall , I would give it a 5 out of 10
Excellent Italian food. Great wine list. The fresh truffles and pasta was amazing!
Great Italian dinner for anniversary
