Great food and service!

Ahead of time I asked questions through their chat-their responses were super thorough and helpful!
(If you use their chat you may have to refresh the page / wait a bit for the response at times - I’d recommend calling if it’s something you need asap)

We ordered deep dish pizza ahead of time so it would be ready when we got there. It was amazing! Perfect temp and tasted phenomenal.

Also had a round of their hot cocktails-the buttered rum is a must.

Before we left I picked up a bottle shop order I’d made. Really loved the selection.

Our server was personable and honest when one or two mix ups happened. They really made it a great experience and we loved their recommendations.

Perfect place for a relaxed night with great food

Few but sophisticated menu. We had two cold plates, two hot plates and a desert.
To me the tuna (cold plate) was the best I tried, the sauce hit the spot, very refreshing and tasteful. Loved it!

Good service and creative food. Not rushed, comfortable space between tables, bilingual and friendly server. For three with two shared cold plates, three main courses, a beer, a glass of wine, and a 50 bottle of white and two desserts a total $230 plus tip.

Great food, but you wouldn't know that from reading the menu. Just trust them. Just eat it. The flavors of the cod dish were amazing. I hate beans, but I still ate them with lust. They were somehow infused with the general taste of the dish. The savors were something I've never experienced before, and never would have, if it wasn't for the chef at Bar Lupulus. My mind is blown. And so will your tastebuds be.

Mark was our bartender as we sat at the wood. Enjoyed his recommendations through the night. Started with a cocktail and charcuterie. Moved into a glass of orange wine and tartare with their braised sunchokes. Finished with a pasta, the winter squash and a beef short rib and a glass of red. Staff was welcoming. Great service, wonderful food and a more than enjoyable Monday night.

Everything about this experience was amazing. The cocktails were interesting and tasty. The food was delicious, we shared small plates and the beef tartare was maybe the best we have ever had. The server helped us choose wine, how she could know something about all the wines on their huge list is more than I can understand and she fortunately steered us away from a choice we would not have liked. Altogether an exceptional meal.

We shared 3 small plates and they were amazing, tasty, creative and a delight for the eyes too. However the sunchokes should be pealed: the peal is chewy and not very attractive. The upside down apple cake was a delight. Great choice of wine by the glass.
And our Waitress was outstanding. I appreciate the fact that the new chef is putting vegetables at the core of his menu.

had my sister and brother in law visiting from france. the food was as stunning as usual for me but my brother in law was in disbelief. he absolutely raved about everything. in my humble opinion, Lupulus has the best food in the city; then pair that with a fantastic staff and a ridiculous beer menu…what else do you want?

very expensive and small portions - but very tasty. The music was very loud and was difficult to hear the person sitting right next to me.
