Efficient & super friendly service, an incredible beer list (offered in 4oz, 8oz & 15oz sizes so you can try many!) & delicious, beautifully plated food.

Great patio created for COVID, well spaced and propane heaters for the cooler weather. The rotating beers are great, there’s always something new to try. Staff are incredibly knowledgeable about drinks and very personable. Been many times and plan to continue going - one of my favourite bars in Ottawa.

Always enjoyable. The staff somehow manage to take time to make their patrons feel at home. The food is always thoughtfully prepared and the tap list is the best in the city.

Bar Lupulus is always a great experience! During these times they have managed to keep the experience just as great. We felt safe and still relaxed enough to enjoy everything. It is the only place we go to for drinks or dinner.

Great staff, super food and a wine list that you won't see anywhere.

Thanks!

Great service, great vibes, great food. Would have liked more food options, and some of the beers were expensive for the size of the pours, but overall a good time and very satisfying!

Excellent patio experience that didn't disappoint. Great cocktail and beer menu, nice selection of small plates. The food was still tasty, but the reason to return is the service, ambiance and legendary selection of drinks.

Loved the sturgeon mousse! Our nice waitress chose the food for us and it was delicious. The owner gave us a sample of Jelly King guava beer while we waited for our table. It was a nice touch and the beer was out of this world! Thank you for great service and a great bday dinner!

the entire staff at lupulus goes above and beyond and I feel spoilt each time I’m there. I’m celiac, and cannot consume dairy nor eggs either, and they made a point to send me a menu containing all the items I could have from the menu. and it was actually almost everything!! they are hella accommodating, and I always recommend :)

Date night for the Fall Prix Fixe menu with their wine pairing, and everything about the evening was spectacular. The Koji aged guinea fowl with gnocchi was absolutely to die for. The back patio was cozy, and servers regularly attended to us. Can’t say enough good things.

A delightful patio, with comfortable tables spaced responsibly.
At time of visit they had over 20 beers on tap & many other liquid delights on the menu.
The menu had a little something for everyone - shishito peppers, gravlax, various things on toasted sourdough.

An excellent place at which to while away the hours.

The covid protocols were the best I have experienced in the city with the use of the digital menus and sign in. The patio in the back is super cute and cozy. The food and beer outstanding as always. Service was great, as soon as I zipped up my coat and server came and turned on the heater!

The patio at the back of Bar Lupulus is a hidden gem! They have done a marvellous job of making the space look great...and, with the umbrellas and heaters, they are ready to stay open outside for as long as possible... something that I appreciate very much! The food was great, as always. The beer selection was more limited than it was prior to COVID but there were still lots of interesting options. We are planning to return again soon!

Bar Lupulus hits it out of the park for unique and delectable beverages and artistic and palate-heavenly dishes. The staff know their craft and suggest outstanding pairings. I drive from Montreal to dine here! An evening at Bar Lupulus is way better than waiting for months for a table at Joe Beef.
I have enjoyed Joe Beef and Liverpool House, but there really isn't anything there that is of higher caliber than what Bar Lupulus serves. Ok agreed there are oysters at Joe Beef but really how many far-from-the-coast raw oyster snacks are required in a good life?
Did I mention the killer cocktails on offer? Their beer and wine lists are unique and excellent.
Keep up the awesomeness, Bar Lupulus!

Beautiful patio out back with socially distanced seating. Thrilled to see more veg friendly options on the menu. The roasted carrots with parsnips, almonds and hemp "yoghurt" were SO good. Beer list on point as always. Staff were friendly and well organized.
