Lupo is one of our favorite restaurants for special occasions, the food is always excellent and the ambiance is lovely. My only critique would be to offer some non alcoholic cocktails for those of us (like me and my family) who can't drink alcohol. We asked our server for a bartender's choice mocktail, which we usually get something interesting and fun at other restaurants and instead we got only pineapple juice, and charged $7. Outstanding dinner and hope to come back soon!

Our third visit to Lupo, and we loved it again. Christina was our server and she was great. We enjoyed the starters wagyu beef carpaccio, meatballs, radicchio salad, bread basket, and entrees wild salmon and ravioli. Thanks Lupo.

Food, service, and ambiance were excellent. Servers were detailed and very attentive to needs. I had mistakenly reserved for the next day but they kindly adapted and gave us a table anyways.

Went for a casual dinner, first time visit.
When you step in, you will smell a musty.
Non of the server wear mask, and who knows wether they had their second shots of not.

Very important thing is that ugly greeting women, she talked like your grandmother, telling you what should not do in here. You should ask to do this and that. Wow! How nice is that?
You won’t feel comfortable looking at her. I’m like am I here for a school lesson? Instead of telling your guests what to do! You should politely offer a solution. Well, maybe she did not know how :) because of your attitude, I am writing this review for sure!
It is recommended to have public relations training!


Honestly foods are cheap, but not worth the price.

Three appetizers:

Focaccia $8
(Like a personal pizza bread baked with veggies and olive oil on it)

Baby Romaine salad $19
(Very very normal Caesar salad, nothing surprising, for the portion and ingredients it only worth $9 max on the table)

Octopus Mosaic $21
(Sour and sweet dressing, nice flavor)

Foie Gras Parfait $26
(Easy portion and not so rich)


Two main course:

Rib eye with grilled prawns $72 ;
(Nicely served, recommended)

Seasonal Nero(lobster and shrimp with Nero) $40 ;
(Tasteless noodle with awful lobster, only had one bite, could not handle to finish this disgusting dish, I hope that chef could pay more attention on cooking it, this is the worse lobster I had ever had)


Lastly, our server and a gentleman(I guess his is a manager or supervisor here) saved this meal by provided above and beyond customer service. And he did took the Seasonal Nero off the bill.
Thank you.

If you are deciding weather or not to try out Lupo this is your sign to stop thinking and just do it!
Such a cozy atmosphere with great food and an amazing wine selection combined with a few cocktails that were made to perfection!

Would recommend to anyone!

Excellent service, great pasta, mains were not great, chicken so salty could barely eat it. Disappointing for a restaurant one would expect more from. $40 entrees need to hit it out of the park, these didn’t.

Food is good but not "wow". Pretty standard and moderate. Sufficient for casual gathering not for an "experience" dinning.

Food was fantastic, interior is immaculate, and the wine was delicious. However, what elevated the night from a regular dinner to a memorable experience was our server Christina. Saturday night we were seated in the downstairs section immediately right of the entrance. My girlfriend and I are both young adults, a few years into our careers, and were celebrating a promotion. We do not frequent upscale restaurants very often, but decided to spend above our budget for a special evening. Sometimes we can feel slightly out of place in "fancy" restaurants. Christina made us feel extremely welcome! The service was attentive and efficient, as it should be, but she went above and beyond helping us choose food and wine, answering our many questions (we don't know anything about wine!!!) and having a good sense of when to chat us up, and when to give us space. We never wanted for anything during the 2+hours we spent at the establishment. Hats off to the chef and kitchen staff, the food was to die for, and a sincere thank you to Christina! I sure hope I got the name right..., either way, if you have a chance to visit Lupo, take it, and if you can sit in Christina's section, you won't be disappointed! 10/10 would recommend to a friend, and 10/10 we are coming back for our next special night!

We come every year for a treat. The food that we ordered this time was good but didn't wow us as previously. The selection was a little limited. Couldn't find something we really craved on the menu.

The grilled octopus on bean salad was very good. The other dishes were decent.

What ever I ordered were so salty, the lamb shank quality was very low the meat ( lamb ) was not soft enough and it’s color was so dark with excessive amount of cinnamon on it . Very expensive for what you get . At the same time , the service was so great and the environment was pleasant .
