Amazing service, food, and beer selection! After having been there a few times, it's my new favourite spot. Great spot for date night too.

Every visit to Bar Lupulus is thoroughly enjoyable! Their ever changing beer list is great for trying out new beers, or enjoying a favourite, and the charcuterie board is always a must!

Creative molecular food that tantalizes, treats, and satisfies. Portions are hearty for molecular dining conventions. Delicious.
Trendy young “hipster” vibe.
Great selection of microbrew options.
Limited variety of well made cocktails.
Has not failed to please.

Great variety of microbrewery beer to choose from. Best is you can order in 4oz sampler so that you can try many different kinds of beer. Food is amazing!!! Great ambiance! Will definitely go back

Always left Bar Lupulus speechless! The beer selection is THE BEST in the city! Food is absolutely stunning and equally delicious. Price point is spot on and service/ambiance is second to none. Highly knowledgeable staff! 4th time at Bar Lupulus and I love it more and more every time! I wish I could give a 10 star review.

We had an excellent dinner at Bar Lupulus. The food really impressed us. We'd not eaten a meal there before but had drinks and snacks in the past as the menu hadn't really excited us. This menu excited us! Our dishes were fantastic. The service was outstanding. Our server was very attentive and knowledgeable. Gave great suggestions on wine pairings for our dinners. They have a very good assortment of wines and hundreds of different beers on tap and in bottles.

The prices are quite high for the quantity of food in each platter. The quality is good but not worth the exorbitant prices, other places offer the same or better quality and ambience for better prices.

As per usual, the food and service was excellent. I always love the amazing combination of flavors you manage to put in every dish. The beer selection was just impecable for fan of both sours and stouts. The service was professional, rapid and very friendly. As repeate customer we truly feel like this is a small town bar with friends serving us.

Had a great time with my husband. I took him out for his birthday and we were not disappointed. The service was excellent and attentive without being intrusive. The food was imaginative, and full of flavour, and was quite reasonably priced for the high quality. We are already looking forward to our next visit!

Yes, I would recommend the Bar but I would warn friends that the food description is not always easy to understand. One of my friends had the pull pork sandwich but was not expecting that. Also the meat was way too salty. One of the server did not understand when we asked for “l’addition” which in a restaurant should be a given and the waitress had trouble speaking in French. Having said this I had one of the best tartare ever and the pasta with mushrooms was very flavourful.

Got last minute seats at the bar. Ended up being the best seats in the house because we got to watch the incredible skill and talent behind the delicious dishes. Even though it was a very busy night for them, the service was great and friendly. I definitely plan to go back.

Had a great hamburger with salad and fantastic potato chunks dressed with parmesan cheese - not at all greasy. Also ordered a glass of a sort of rose wine, cannot remember the name but 5oz at $13 was also quite reasonable and very nice tasting.

I very much enjoyed my first visit. Food was served quickly, hot and the staff did described the content of each serving in detail. For beer lovers the Lupulus offers more than 20 different beers on tap plus a large variety of bottled beers and wine. The place is small therefore high noise level is to be expected. Highly recommended.
