Normally a great place for us to dine. Our last visit was not as good. We asked that our food not come out all at once bacause we ordered five different items to be shared. The second dish came out too soon. We weren’t even half way through the first dish. Teice we asked the server for silver ware and it was obvious she was not going to get some for us since her job was to just serve the food. That was strictly our waiters job. So we sat there with our food until the waiter noticed we had no silver ware. He did bring some and piled it in a bunch all on our left side. We dine out most nights and know silverware is normally put out before dishes come out.
Good: Margherita pizza, Octopus appetizer
Bad: Uni Pasta,Caesar salad, Red Snapper Piccata
the food and service were excellent ! appetizers were great and original .... :)
Slow service. Ordered 2 tagliatelle dishes. They substituted linguini without telling us that they were out of tagliatelle. Totally wrong! Will never go there again and will not recommend to friends.
It was my daughters 21st for which she got no recognition food was delicious service apauling 35 minute wait for a glass of wine😩
Extremely poor service and extremely disappointing tasteless food. The only good thing was the Cesar Salad and the Prosecco.
Avoid the pastas - even my 9 year old can make better sauces. Actually, avoid this restaurant if possible at all.
While the food was good, the dinner had an almost comical number of glitches that made for an unsatisfying dining experience. These included: being told immediately by the waiter that virtually half the menu items were out of stock; being served a warm bottle of water and needing to wait until it cooled off; the gnocchi we ordered did not come with any chicken as requested; it took 20 minutes to receive the correct silverware for seafood; it took a long time for the waiter and even one of the hostesses to clarify allergens.
We were the lucky ones. There was a family at the table next to us that had been seated before us whose food had not yet arrived by the time we were leaving.
Fantastic food and service. We must have had the best waiter ever because we so enjoyed everything about Lupinos as we remembered it from 5 years ago. So thank you Royce!!! Thanks also to all your peers (and manager) who combined to make this a memorable experience again. Wine selections are incredibly deep and some do not have the normal 50-100% markup. Outside seating looked nice too but it was a little humid despite the January date. Mahalo!
The service was amazing, and the food was incredible
The food is delicious but the customer service was seriously lacking. We had to wait 40 mins past our reservation time to get seated, over an hour to get our food and when brought up to management not a care was given. Beware when going here.
