                                                    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.

Loved everything she recommended. Ambiance was fun. A wonderful reunion with old friends who hadn’t gathered since pre-COVID.

                                                    The restaurant was very noisy. The food was good but not great and the portions were embarrassingly small. The beer choices were almost non existent unless you wanted some bizarre taste choice. The service was very good. Would I recommend this place? I don’t know.

                                                    Although the small plates and appetizers looked rather sparse on our plates, we found them filling and super-delicious! The patio is nicely designed and built, and the service was excellent, with lots of explanations about ingredients, etc. There was background music, not too loud. The washroom is easily accessible. We had an early supper as the day had been chilly, but finished and left before the lights and heaters were needed. Lots of shade for sunny days, too. Definitely on the expensive side, but a wonderful treat for our anniversary.

                                                    This is my favourite restaurant in the city—once Bar Laurel closed. Just don’t sit people who plan to eat at those brutal bar style seats on the patio if it can be avoided. They just aren’t good seats. Fine for drinks only. Maybe ask if folks plan to stay for dinner or drinks only. Otherwise, you’re still my go to restaurant. Thanks for bringing in unique ingredients and compliments to the chef. Weißer Spargal (white asparagus) is so in season in Germany right now. Never thought I’d be able to have a well done dish with it here in Ottawa. +++

                                                    I highly recommend this restaurant. We loved the eclectic menu which surpassed our expectations! Great wine menu! Will be going for sure to try their new patio!

                                                    The food is exceptional and the beverage options are expansive and the staff are knowledgeable of both. If you’re looking for U.S size portions with a massive bread basket, this place isn’t for you. I recommend this restaurant for a group of people ir even for two people acquainted with each other. First date? - I recommend a quieter place. All in all - an excellent experience!!!

                                                    First experience! Excellent food and service! Table of 5 and everybody loved their meal (Turbot, Maitake & Potato, Beef & Grits) complemented by a delicious dessert (Apples & caramel). One of the guests had food allergies and they nicely accommodated her by modifying the ingredients. This was much appreciated and resulted in another excellent meal. Finally, our server ‘Kayla’ was tremendous all around! Kuddos to Lupulus - we will definitely be returning!

                                                    Excellent service and wine list, dissappointing food. We had three small plates and a pasta dish and each was just slightly not to our taste. The pastry for the foie gras tarte was slightly stale tasting - like it had been stored uncovered in the fridge too long; the squash salad and the pasta felt undercooked (could be purely a matter of preference) . The venison tartare was excellent, but the soft brioche bun seemed stale. For the price, the food was a let down. But the wine and service were both excellent.

                                                    We enjoyed a most lovely meal on a sunny evening out on the back patio. The cocktails, wine and food was delicious. Loved their spin on an Aperol Spritz. And the cheeses and the cod that we had were wonderful. I have been telling friends all about it already! Having a back patio away from the traffic noise, is so quiet and relaxing. We were staying downtown Ottawa and it was quite easy to get to the restaurant on the O Train and then just a short walk to the lovely village of Wellington West.

                                                    What a great find, we are visiting Ottawa from overseas and were very much impressed with the wine bar’s vibe and all offerings… very good service … we liked it so much, we booked again for the following day.

                                                    Had a great dinner at Bar Lupulus, the server was knowledgeable and offered recommendations when we asked. We were celebrating a birthday they brought out a dessert, which was a nice surprise. All the dishes we tried were amazing. Will definitely be back!
