    The entire experience at Lupin is great. The wine selection is limited but adequate. The food is excellent & very well presented & a great deal of the produce comes from their own gardens which you can wander around in. There are a couple of firepits outside to sit around & enjoy. This was my third visit & I know I'll go back !

    Die Reservierung lag zwar vor, aber es war kein Tisch für uns (3 Personen) reserviert. Man versuchte uns einen Tisch auf der Terrasse anzubieten, was wir aber wegen der herbstlichen Temperatur ablehnten. Es wurden dann hastig zwei Einzeltische zusammengeschoben. Die letzten beiden um 18:00 Uhr (!) an einem normalen Donnerstag. Also unbedingt reservieren. Das Essen war wirklich hervorragend! Heilbutt mit einem leckeren Wein-Risotto und ein Schweinsfilet mit Schinken umwickelt, sehr zart. Der Wein wurde gut gekühlt gehalten. Das Dessert köstlich und hübsch serviert. Endlich mal schickes Besteck und Stoffservietten - ein Lichtblick in dieser Pommes / Burger Wildnis . Wir kommen bestimmt wieder!!!

    Lupin Dining and Pantry was such a great experience! What a find. We are sure to return again and again although we are seasonal residents in the area. The food was outstanding, the service excellent and we appreciated the farm to table experience start to finish. We also purchased pantry items for foodie gifts and a treat to take out for another fine dinner. Highly recommend!

    The thought and creativity that goes into every dish is remarkable. Walking around the property, enjoying the fires makes the dining experience that much more unique and special. Highly recommend checking this place out and don’t be in a hurry because you’ll want to take it all in!

    Two words: Hidden Gem. What an outstanding experience! When we drove up to Lupin, my instant reaction was “uh oh” because it felt like you were just driving up to someone’s house. But when you walk around back, there was a giant garden and chicken coop, patio lights, beautiful outdoor dining tables, and a pumpkin patch photo op station. It was beautiful. The inside was quaint and cute. But the real treasure was the food! Don’t go here if you want a diverse menu with multiple options because there are only about 4 entrees. But if you’re not a picky eater, you could choose any of the mains and be very impressed. The service was great, the food was incredible, and the overall experience was awesome. I want to take all my friends here. If you like local and literally farm to table, Lupin should be your first choice.

    I was miffed that at my 3rd time to make a reservation that I had to change it, most recently bec. Lupin wasn't offering brunch. You could have served us brunch and then concluded serving it. You lose customers if you cancel on them too often. My group of 12 didn't get to Lupin bec. 1st you couldn't accomodate us and then there a family emergency.

    Great spot. Just a nice little drive from the city. Lots of parking. Brunch was delicious. Service was great. Very friendly and relaxed. Strolled through the garden out back and bet the place would look beautiful when the outside lights are on. My daughter and I enjoyed it very much. Would highly recommend a stop there. Be sure to make a reservation.

    This was our first visit. The food was delicious, the staff were very polite and attentive however when I ordered a coffee they only asked if I wanted milk and didn't bring any sugar to the table. The coffee was fine without sugar so I didn't complain. I had the artic char and my wife had eggs Benedict. Superb. We have booked again for 2 separate occasions with our friends and will be back again for brunch. The strawberry jam we bought is to die for. We cannot recommend highly enough.
