    There was a couple sitting behind us that was behaving very inappropriately and being very romantic. It was making us feel uncomfortable and it wasn’t the appropriate place to do such things. The girl also tipped over the table and her drink went flying and spilled all over the floor. Making our shoes and clothes wet and dirty. I have come to your restaurant many times- one of my fave and the waitress was super. I spent $200+ and was not happy with our dining experience.is there anything that you can do? I coming back next month for a client dinner bit to be honest a bit skeptic now to come.

    I live so close to this place and have always wanted to try it. I’m so glad I finally did because it was fantastic. The food was incredible!! We had the sourdough bread and butter which I could have drank, the oysters which were lovely, the steak tartar which was so flavourful, the gnocchi which was to die for, the salad which was brought to us by mistake but I’m so glad it was because it was unreal and a bottle of red. I can’t wait to go back.

    The care and thought that went into each of the dishes we had was evident. Nouveau French is a very apt description. Lapinou has innovative and creative takes on classic dishes, using fresh and local ingredients. The service was as kind and attentive as one could wish. I am looking forward to going back.

    Fantastic tasting menu showcasing winter truffles. Kudos to the sommelier who perfectly paired each course with an appropriate wine. Service was very pleasant. Memorable items were the fish and the pasta. When booking the truffle experience, please confirm if wine pairings are required and pricing for it. Can’t stress enough that the wine pairing with this menu is fantastic!

    love the ambience of this spot! food was delicious and clearly made with care and very fresh ingredients. drinks were also fantastic. i got the pork, beef tartare and sourdough and it was all 10/10. only thing i didn’t like was the dessert, we tried the chocolate and the pannacotta and both were alright, bit too sour and had a weird aftertaste. overall however, amazing experience!

    Came here with a girlfriend for dinner and drinks. It was a great vibe. There was a live female DJ that balanced the dark/moody ambiance and livened the place up. Also the food was fantastic. I had the oysters, beef tartare, and gnocci - And would recommend all! My girlfriend got the chicken which was also delicious. Will definitely be back

    LOVE Lapinou - the team are lovely, incredible wine list, amazing and creative food. Has always been a go-to for work dinners, but also great for a date or girl’s night. Also appreciate how they refresh the menu regularly, but can’t wait for the ham and comté cheese app to return!
