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.

As always, Lupulus served up an amazing date night experience! The atmosphere was beautiful and romantic on their all new gorgeous patio! The service was beyond efficient and their precautions made for a stress free relaxing evening- so much so, we almost forgot about the pandemic! Food and cocktails/beer delicious as always! Pro tip: Try the Chamomile-Hibiscus cheesecake! Thank you again Anthony, Kayla, and the rest of the Lupulus staff!

Whether its a weird beer or wicked wine that you're craving Bar Lupulus always seems to deliver in a big way. The one-offs and collaborative brews make for a truly unique selection. It was the liquid that drew me in but the food made me stay, right at the end of bar so I may watch all of the food prep. action. Just trying to guess what is coming out next is a game in itself. I appreciate that in most cases the entire dish is made in house; Koji fermenting, pickling, etc. I visit this establishment often and would recommend to anyone who appreciates innovation in their dining experience. The owners are present most of the time; the quality of the food and attentive service reflects that leadership.
