This team is consistently great. The food, delivery and knowledge of wine. They are doing a lot of things great including staff retention. Never seems to be a turnover and always feel welcome by the team. Staple for us.

Enjoyed a lovely evening of cocktails and delicious food. I had the grilled octopus and it was outstanding! Our server went above and beyond to make sure we all made the right selections for us. I’ll definitely be back!

Kudos to the chef! The menu is creative, influenced by many cuisines, innovative techniques and unique ingredients, including locally foraged hen of the woods mushrooms which were outstanding! We enjoyed the meal, appreciated the friendly service.

Cuisine raffinée, beaucoup d'inventivité et de soin dans les plats, jolies assiettes. Trois petits plats et un dessert sont suffisants pour nous. Nous sommes contents de savoir que le nouveau chef mettra l'accent sur les légumes! Quelle réjouissante nouvelle!
Excellent service !

Lupulus exceeds expectations with their fantastic beer and wine list, well crafted cocktails, and elevated menu. The friendliest staff, including the owner who is always on the floor with his people.

Love it!

Focus on craft beers and natural wines. Knowledgeable and friendly (read not pretentious) staff, and great ambiance (especially the back patio). Menu changes frequently and is innovative and delicious.

Amazing food. Amazing service. Graham/Graeme was just fantastic. So chill. Great wine pairings. We ate almost everything off the menu. This will be my new spot after Bar Laurel closed.

It was my first trip to Bar Lupulus and overall it was quite enjoyable. The menu consists of charcuterie, cheese, and small plates meant for sharing. Everything we ate was good especially the duck prosciutto and the lamb. However, the octopus was slightly overcooked and lacked flavour. Service was friendly, knowledgeable and relaxed. I found the wine ordering system needlessly complex. Why do I need to use a web chat to order a bottle of wine? In the end, the waitress helped us out but the silly wine ordering system is unnecessary.

Always a pleasure. Love the 4oz pours. Gives you the opportunity to try lots of fun stuff without a huge commitment. Back patio ambiance is great, servers were knowledgeable, an overall excellent experience as always.

The food was really quite good. Eclectic in a good way. Beer selection could have been better--a lot of beer choices most of them quite sour.

Once again, the dishes were excellent. Of the cold plates, the tomato carpaccio was a clear winner - the flavour, the crunch of the puffed grains - a perfect dish. While the cucumber aguachile was interesting, I do not think we would order it again. For hot plates, both the Humboldt squid and the slow roasted lamb were amazing - cooked to perfection and full of flavour.

Beer selection was nicely varied with many different options. The ability to order 4 oz beers meant I could try many.

The food was excellent. My buddy and I grazed mostly on appetizers which was far from the regular pub grub with many interesting offerings to be sampled.

The staff was very good and only forgot to mention that we only had the table for 2 hours due to the few tables available due to the damned COVID situation. So be it. We will go again.
