This is a favourite of ours! Incredible beer election with awesome limited run/edition beers to drink. Their pricing structure offers such a unique opportunity to order your favourite in a 10oz size or try all of the cool beers on tap with a 4oz pour. The value here for the drinks is incredible. They also have a wonderful by-the-bottle wine list if you have some wine drinkers in your party.
The food is artful, innovative and outstanding. Doing their own take on some classics and re-inventing the wheel with some of their own creations.
Go for a drink (or 10). Go be blown away with the food. Go experience the incredible attentive service. You won’t be disappointed.
Very small portions and the service was too fast for a pricey meal. We had cocktails, appetizer and main and were out in 56 minutes. The meal should have been paced better. Instead we felt like they were just in it to move more tables through. We left hungry and flavours were only mediocre so we won’t be going back.
Huge selection of brew. Amazing. Did not try the food, had already eaten elsewhere. Nice bustling spot.
I loved being able to try 3-oz samples of anything on tap. Food was great, lots of adventurous flavourings. Tables are wide to accommodate plates, so you're far from your tablemate, and it can get loud. Very attentive and knowledgeable service.
I love this place. The food is inventive. The charcuterie is fantastic. The staff are amazing. They know their menus extremely well and are friendly and attentive. I highly recommend Bar Lupulus!
My first time to the restaurant. Overall, it was a pleasant experience. I had heard good things about Bar Lupulus. The drink menu is very extensive, especially the beer selection. The staff was very knowledgeable and friendly. Everything we ate was delicious. However, I found the portions a bit small. I’m a normal eater. As well, I just spent three months in Europe and think the plate sizes were small even by European standards. There could have been a bit more vegetables with the beef dish ordered. The chocolate cake was delicious! All in all, a very good meal.
Everything about our dinner was excellent! Fabulous delicious complex dishes, outstanding service and lovely ambiance.
Absolutely fantastic experience. Great selection of beers on tap, and really unique foods on the ever-changing menu. Could really tell that the staff were passionate their craft - will definitely be returning soon
Our favourite neighbourhood spot! The best selection of craft beers in the entire city! The late night food options are amazing also. We enjoy coming here often and love the service that the staff provide. Feels like home!
I loved the fact that we could order a sangria (not on the menu) - and that the kitchen could make small changes to the meal to accommodate dietary restrictions. We felt welcome and the server was very knowledgeable about the extensive beer list.
Mais j ajouterai que le Pour le Brunch ....If they can add Kids menu , it will be great and add more choices for adults ( such as Fruits ,.....).
But in Overall, the place is cute , open and uour menu is Unique ........Just need more choices .
Thanks and I will definitely be back !
Such a wonderful melding of flavours in every dish that we tried. Nice beer selection as well.
Fantastic food and great service but needs noise reduction measures. Unpleasantly loud.
An evening very well spent! We were celebrating my husbands Law graduation and we originally made our reservation for 8 but called ahead of time and they were able to make room for us to arrive early. Upon arrival they were pleasant and fast to great us, we were given a choice where to sit and then given attention for drinks right away. The server was pestered by questions as I do not like beer and my husband adores beer. The server was cheerful and up for a fun time and a challenge; he was able to find me a beer that I adored (no beer taste what so ever. More like a punch you in the face less carbonated champagne.) and to find my husband three beers he adored. The server was very knowledgeable and attentive and was sable to describe all the food to us in depth as well as explain all the aromas of the beers to us. He never let our water level go down, too! Once we were done, he realized the special occasion and took a round off of our receipts; unexpected and thoroughly appreciated. We both highly recommend this place for anyone that enjoys great food, good drinks, a cool atmosphere and a hip vibe! Well done, Bar Lupulus, well done!
The ostrich tartare we had was extremely salty, almost inedible. The rest of the food was quite bland, lacking in flavour, with the exception of the gnocci which was a small component of one dish. I was underwhelmed...I had expected more for the price and the hype.
We enjoyed our dinner and drinks very much. Very attentive staff, food thoughtfully and artfully prepared, great interpretations and flavors. In response to our server's end-of-meal question, we said that we would both try something else next time - but only to try something else. That said, I think we'd both repeat with the ostrich tartare... fantastic! Our one down-tick - the front wall was open to the street, and as a consequence the back of the house was very warm.
Good food and drink as always but service a bit slow- not a real problem but for one colleague who had to get back to the office it was disappointing that he had to nearly gulp down his drink because it took over 10 minutes to make our order.
Cool vibes, semi-pretentious art food, and a good choice of beers. Super duper noisy...super friendly staff. I will come again and try some nachos
Very interesting menu and very tasty and beautifully presented. Service folks were welcoming, very friendly and well informed re food and it’s preparation. We had a fine time with friends and will definitely return.
Food was great, wine a bit expensive, very noisy, difficult to have a conversation, next time we will get a place against a wall. Waitress was very knowledgeable and helpful.
Excellent service which was friendly and with useful advice on menu options! Great beer selection! Food was creative but good. Disappointed with the coffee which tasted reheated. Was a bit noisy. Overall, I recommend as a fun place to experience though, not on a top 10 list. Note: fills up fast on a Saturday evening! Also, a bit pricy (and I was grateful to have received a gift certificate to help!)
Good food, not great, good service, nice atmosphere
Best restaurant in Ottawa! Thanks to Josh and the team. Fantastic private natural wine, amazing chefs and of course the beer selection. Great atmosphere, you can't beat Ottawa hottest restaurant.
Exciting flavour, textures and combinations. First time we have had quinoa and truly enjoyed it!
My wife, son and I enjoyed a wonderful meal on mother’s day. The guinea fowl breast was baked perfectly while the beef short rib literally melted in your mouth.
We also enjoyed 4 beer tasters.
Can’t wait to return.
Went for brunch, and unfortunately the music and noise from the kitchen were too loud. We had difficulty hearing each other, and the waitress. The ambiance would be more fitting for drinks at the end of the day.
Food was generally good, but portions were small. We left feeling hungry still.
However, beautiful decor and great selection for craft beers.
I think we must have been the oldest in the crowd and found the noise level too much. The starter - Charred Brussels were very nice but my short rib was not good. Very stringy and not much taste. My husband found the fish small and rather tasteless as well. The chocolate cake was great. Wine was a little pricey and the overall bill was rather high at $184.00.
This bar is for a younger crowd as far as I am concerned but as it is local we thought we would give it a try.
Loved the beer selection so many new fun things to try. For me the food was uneven. Maybe my expectations were too high but I wasn’t wowed like others seem to be.
Service was great, and the overall vibe was awesome.
I would go back for the beer for sure.
Good news, bad news
Bar staff very knowledgeable and attentive
Great selection of beer
Charcuterie was very good, especially the duck breast
Guinea fowl was good
Birthday dessert was good
Short rib was a fail
The meat was OK, but the accompaniments were terrible:
The gnocchi were gummy
The potatoes were hard
The veg was inedible
One unsatisfied diner equals one negative dining experience
Great cocktails and food! Fun atmosphere.
One of Ortawa finest restaurants. Never disappointed. That k you for the great service Steven!
Wow is all I can say from the food to the beer service everything was amazing
Kudos for experimenting on various game meats and presentation. However, the pairing between mains and sides didn't coincide very well. I had the guinea breast with quinoa and it was bland at best. Wine selection at $90 per bottle was, in my opinion, not a $90 bottle. Expensive dinner for little in return. Good service and server was knowledgable.
This place was amazing. The food was great, beer selection top notch, and service fantastic. Servers really knew their stuff.
100% would go back again - if I lived around here I might have a problem with my wallet.
Great food! Server knowledgeable and genuinely interested in food preparation and presentation. Good wine selection. Love this place!
The food was to die for. We had a wonderful stout and a delicious Belgian-style beer.
It was my birthday dinner. My girlfriend and I take each other out for dinner instead of buying gifts.
The dinner was excellent, from cocktails to appetizers, to mains and wine. Sadly we were too full for dessert. As far as service goes, I ordered a cocktail which I did not like and they offered to replace it with something else. Service was excellent, friendly, knowledgeable and we were served at a good pace.
Excellent evening out. Good menu choices, extensive drink menu.
Absolutely amazing food. I could not believe how complex and delicious every dish was. People really have to go and see for themselves. The beer selection is also outstanding. It made for a memorable evening.
