    I’ve been going to Bar Lupulus since they opened. The food is excellent; expertly envisaged by a chef who clearly takes time, effort and passion to conceive gastronomic delights that always please. Creative and sometimes avant garde, their creations are enough to throughly satisfy without overwhelming. Their drink selection is unparalleled. One of the only establishments I know of that offer wine, beer and cocktails at equally high calibre. Their prominently Ontario and Quebec craft beers are expertly selected, their cocktails are artfully concocted, and their wines would please a sommelier. Above all, I will agree with other reviewers and praise the service at Bar Lupulus. Their knowledge and genuine friendliness guarantees I will always come back. I must admit that, by now, I know many of the staff by name, and they know me. I love bringing my friends here as I know they will have an excellent culinary and service experience. Bar Lupulus is my #1 go-to destination in Ottawa!!

    The food is fantastic, but the service is what needs to be highlighted. Our server was so amazing and she was so knowledgeable. It was my second time being served by her and both times were remarkable with her knowledge of the menu and drink options. Highly recommended.

    Great beer selection but service was slow. Friendly once it arrived but we sat for almost ten minutes before someone took our drink order. We saw people come in after us get their drinks before we had our order taken.

    Wanted to try a new restaurant and wasn’t disappointed. The food is of a truly elevated quality and the service is attentive and amiable. We loved our meals and the portion size was perfect. We dined indoors but one look at the garden patio out back and I wished we booked outdoors. Both options are sure to please. We will be back!

    Our experience started with some pints from an exceptionally well-curated draught list. We enjoyed a charcuterie of our choosing which included delightful complementing accoutrements. Dinner stole the show as each the beef and grits and turbot blew our hair back in their attention to detail and well built flavours.

    Absolutely delicious food! We had the steak tartar as a starter, followed by a beef main and a turbot main, both outstanding! We ordered both desserts, strawberries and cream and a walnut rhubarb dessert, and we wanted to lick the plates! The wine was excellent too! You will not be disappointed. Go!

    Dining at Lupulus is always a delight. I have never been disappointed. Friendly attentive service, creative flavorful food and cozy atmosphere in the patio. The maitake and potato main course was delicious as well as the little gem black walnut salad and the exotic fish crudo. A delicious walnut financier with ginger ice cream perfectly ended the meal.

    We sat on the patio, so that is why I rated it as quiet. Had we sat inside, I would have given the rating as very noisy. It's just a different vibe on the patio, not better, just different. Bar Lupulus is a great spot to go with friends or as a couple. The menu is small and has interesting choices. We had a charcuterie board; you can choose your meats/cheeses. We also shared their Foie Gras tart...wow! That was amazing! It looked like a dessert. Delicious. I highly recommend this restaurant.

    I liked the patio but I hate downloading a menu. I found the menu to be so incredibly expensive and confusing to read. I feel like the items are described like one would describe wine and it's overly wordy. The ambience is nice and the servers were great. I would go again for drinks only.

    It just wasn’t great. This is supposed to be one of the best restaurants in Canada and we were underwhelmed and still hungry. It’s impressive they make all their pasta but both dishes were bland and oily. Main dish of mushroom and potato(singular) was comically small and also bland. Great beer menu and patio but would not return for the food. It’s a shame because clearly a lot of effort went into the food, just not enough punch.
