    We had an incredible experience at bar lupulus. The food was outstanding and great value for the price as well. The drinks were great too and they have a big selection of mocktails. We’ll definitely be going back soon!

    Fabulous local restaurant: some of the most creative dishes we've ever had across the 5 countries we've lived in, and consistently excellent. Every dinner at Lupulus has been a superb experience. Very pleasant, helpful waitstaff who one can get to know, and vice versa. Only downside is the noise level - but on the other hand the patrons are clearly enjoying themselves.

    Food and service was outstanding. While dining here isn't cheap, it is worth the splurge. The creativity and quality of the food are excellent; wine selection and the sommelier support in choosing are outstanding. Know that you will not be disappointed.

    Lupulus is by far the best place in Ottawa to enjoy an amazing craft beer. They have an amazing selection of Belgian Geuze, spontaneous beers and many other styles that are quite pleasant to taste. Their service is always amazing and their staff is fluently bilingual to serve you in French as in English which is a nice plus. Such a gem in Ottawa!

    Nous étions 2 , nous avions réserver a 8 hrs, nous avons eu notre place a 8 hrs 10 , nous avons pris un verre et manger. A 9 hrs 45, le serveur nous avertie que nous devons quitter notre table car il y avait une autre réservation. Nous avions même pas finit de souper. J'avais encore faim, je m'apprêtais a prendre un autre plat et mon amie, un dessert. Et les deux, un autre verre. Nous avons quitter et sommes aller finir notre souper dans un autre restaurant. Nous sommes extrêmement déçu, ce n'étais pas écrit null part lorsque j'ai réserver. Les souper a 5 hrs je comprend mais à 8 hrs. Je pensais pas que j'avais a 1 hrs 35 pour souper un samedi soir. Les plats, les cocktails et le vin étaient délicieux wow

    Lovely spot! The servers are extremely passionate, the food is well thought of, and the ambiance is cozy. Everything was very fresh and creative, the beer selection is fun! 10/10 recommend! Minor detail: duck was slightly overcooked, my only thing to point out after trying their fish dish(crazy good!), the charcuterie board (the jams>>>>), and the bison carpaccio (olive oil was the star of the show here)

    Went for a date after reading great reviews online and it did not disappoint. Their mixologists were on point with their custom cocktails. Food was unique and good on presentation but the portions were a bit small. Definitely on the noisier side but to be fair the place was packed. The servers were amazing! For 3 appetizers, 4 cocktails, 4 beer tasters, 2 mains and dessert it was around 280 tip included and I think it was worth it. Want to try their backyard patio next time.

    Bar Lupulus is the 100/10 best restaurant in the city. If you are a lover of craft beer (especially sours) and natural funky wines this is the place for you! The beer and wine menu is ever changing and there is always something different! The food is severely underrated in my opinion and no one else is doing it like this! The beef tartare is top tier and the pasta is always next level! The veal cheek pasta is unbelievable and a top ten dish in Ottawa for me! The food, drinks and especially the service is what keeps us coming back. The staff here are skilled, friendly and so personable. We leave feeling so well taken care of every time. If you aren’t going here you are missing out!

    Excellent choice of craft beer (more than 20 options) and cocktails but it was the food that brought the wow factor. We bookended our meal with Buffalo Carpaccio as a starter and duck fat chocolate cake to top things off. Mmmmmm

    Great tap selections- lambic was particularly tasty. Tartar had really nice woody notes and balanced with acid - puffed cracker was a nice touch. Duck was rendered well, slightly toothsome to my tastes but I prefer a minimal cook and was still very nice flavor. The accompanying purees and sauce were highlights. The chocolate torte was on the heavy side but the ice cream and puffed rice soil would be a perfect dessert on their own. Good, knowledgeable service and a pleasant room despite our reserved table being located as close to the bathroom as was possible. Would recommend for those looking for casual French based plates with some innovative touches and a strong tap rotation.

    Had a great dinner with my girlfriend and a friend! Everything was fantastic and delicious. Would recommend this place to anyone, it’s pricey but the value is great! Smaller menu and roasting so you always have the best quality food as well as beverages! I recommend the desserts at the end especially the cheesecake and sorbet! Desserts aren’t too heavy or rich, so won’t make you leaving overrun. 10/10 great food, drinks, and service!
