    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.

    We ordered a charcuterie board and it was not as good as I expected it to be. It was also retrieved from us by the server without being asked if we were done. I grab a piece of cheese as he was taking it away. Also, there was not enough crackers to go with it. We also ordered the beef tartare, and they just assumed that we ordered 1 to share but we wanted one each. The flavors for the tartare were very different than a classic one but, in my opinion, not that great. Also, I believe that a 2 hours windows for a reservation is too short. I was offered an other glass of wine at 20:15 when we had to be gone by 20:30. What am I supposed to do, chug that glass of wine in 15 minutes? Also, they did not offered to move us or anything when I decline the glass of wine by saying well we were told we have to be gone by 20:30... This was my second time and although I really enjoyed it the first time, I left very disappointed this time around.

    Tout était parfait! Le repas, les bières, le vin et les cocktails étaient phénoménaux! Notre serveur connaissait très bien le menu et nous a très bien conseillé. Nous avons également acheté des bières à apporter à la maison et encore une fois, nous avons été très bien conseillé. Si vous n’avez jamais été au Bar Lupulus votre vie n’est pas complète! C’est le genre d’endroit d’où vous ne voudrez plus jamais partir tellement c’est extraordinaire.

    The cocktail was very good, I would order it again. The food was tasty and fancy, but the smallest portion I have ever experienced and I have been to quite a few high end restaurants. I had a large plate. I cannot imagine how the small plate looked like. I would never recommend this place for food, only for drinks. Very expensive and insufficient even for a high end restaurant. And it doesn't look and feel like a high end restaurant.

    Tough day for staff with an unexpected storm, but they made the best of it: moved us indoors, let us experience the patio when things were clear, friendly without intruding on our gabbing. Food has improved since last I went, so kudos to kitchen. Definitely recommend.
