Best restaurant in Ottawa! Thanks to Josh and the team. Fantastic private natural wine, amazing chefs and of course the beer selection. Great atmosphere, you can't beat Ottawa hottest restaurant.
Exciting flavour, textures and combinations. First time we have had quinoa and truly enjoyed it!
My wife, son and I enjoyed a wonderful meal on mother’s day. The guinea fowl breast was baked perfectly while the beef short rib literally melted in your mouth.
We also enjoyed 4 beer tasters.
Can’t wait to return.
Went for brunch, and unfortunately the music and noise from the kitchen were too loud. We had difficulty hearing each other, and the waitress. The ambiance would be more fitting for drinks at the end of the day.
Food was generally good, but portions were small. We left feeling hungry still.
However, beautiful decor and great selection for craft beers.
Loved the beer selection so many new fun things to try. For me the food was uneven. Maybe my expectations were too high but I wasn’t wowed like others seem to be.
Service was great, and the overall vibe was awesome.
I would go back for the beer for sure.
I think we must have been the oldest in the crowd and found the noise level too much. The starter - Charred Brussels were very nice but my short rib was not good. Very stringy and not much taste. My husband found the fish small and rather tasteless as well. The chocolate cake was great. Wine was a little pricey and the overall bill was rather high at $184.00.
This bar is for a younger crowd as far as I am concerned but as it is local we thought we would give it a try.
Great cocktails and food! Fun atmosphere.
One of Ortawa finest restaurants. Never disappointed. That k you for the great service Steven!
Wow is all I can say from the food to the beer service everything was amazing
Kudos for experimenting on various game meats and presentation. However, the pairing between mains and sides didn't coincide very well. I had the guinea breast with quinoa and it was bland at best. Wine selection at $90 per bottle was, in my opinion, not a $90 bottle. Expensive dinner for little in return. Good service and server was knowledgable.
This place was amazing. The food was great, beer selection top notch, and service fantastic. Servers really knew their stuff.
100% would go back again - if I lived around here I might have a problem with my wallet.
Great food! Server knowledgeable and genuinely interested in food preparation and presentation. Good wine selection. Love this place!
The food was to die for. We had a wonderful stout and a delicious Belgian-style beer.
It was my birthday dinner. My girlfriend and I take each other out for dinner instead of buying gifts.
The dinner was excellent, from cocktails to appetizers, to mains and wine. Sadly we were too full for dessert. As far as service goes, I ordered a cocktail which I did not like and they offered to replace it with something else. Service was excellent, friendly, knowledgeable and we were served at a good pace.
Excellent evening out. Good menu choices, extensive drink menu.
Absolutely amazing food. I could not believe how complex and delicious every dish was. People really have to go and see for themselves. The beer selection is also outstanding. It made for a memorable evening.
A wonderful meal! Service was knowledgeable and attentive but never intrusive. Food was interesting and well prepared. Will return soon.
I always have incredible customer service when I come here. I was welcomed immediately, and even given a beer tasting while I was waiting for my table to be ready. Staff is always so knowledgeable and inclusive. Always so interactive. Love this place.
This is one of my favorite restaurants in Ottawa, bar none! Amazing beer selection and bottle list, plus great food and late night pop-ups. A must visit.
Service was outstanding. Food was really good, but my main was served cold. They fixed it promptly which was awesome but it still kinda put a kink in the experience. Ambience is fantastic EXCEPT that it was so loud I felt Iike I was shouting our conversation at some point...
Have visited a couple of times for lunch and finally, dinner. Excellent vibe and atmosphere. Extensive beer list, excellent, of course...and great to have option for smaller pours. Great wine and cocktail list, as well. Service was bang on and our server was very knowledgeable. Side note: almost no diversity in either front/back of house.
We were very much looking forward to the food after reading a very flattering review in local paper and considering the chef's résumé. Sadly, nothing stood out for us. The menu read intriguing and challenging, as expected. We found the dishes to be flat, confusing and disappointing. So many components that we all thought would blow our minds and tastebuds...in the end, it was exactly that, just a bunch of components.
Food ordered: Charcuterie/Cheese, Lingua, Burrata, Carbon Capelinni, Wheat Grass Papardelle and Desserts: chocolate and cheesecake
100% would go back for drinks.
The food was good at our recent lunch visit and we appreciated the server's recommendations from the beer list. Unfortunately, it was too noisy for our party of five to converse across the table and we are unlikely to return for a meal. Maybe for a beverage on a quiet afternoon. There are few vegetarian options although other menu items could be modified on request.
Excellent food, extensive beer list, wines & cocktails. Very loud but that's to be expected in a place with nothing but hard surfaces. Service was perfect: attentive but not pushy. Servers are very knowledgeable and know their products. Glad I made a reservation, people were being turned away on a Saturday dinner service.
So tasty. Complicated flavours, and excellent presentation. Good beer, and great dessert. The waiter was excellent,he talked to us, but no pressure. An all around hit!
Amazing food and incredible service. What more could you ask for? If you haven’t been, you should.
The menu is small and creative but definitely not limited. The salads, mains and desserts were simply delicious. The short rib I enjoyed was fork tender and very flavourful as was the fish.there were 4 ladies in our group. The restaurant and bar were very busy and lively which didn’t bother us a bit. Our service was spot on, well informed server who described every dish and always knew when to come to the table. We all loved every part of every dish. And our dining experience. We’ll be back.
Went for a date night and we were delighted.
The Arctic Char really did melt in your mouth. The short ribs were awesome. Much to our surprise, the carrot gelato and chocolate cake was an excellent finish.
The beer and wine selection offered excellent pairings.
We will be back.
Amazing experience, even better food. My only complaint if I had to make one was that it was very loud. Would definitely go back!
Would recommend with the caveat that it is very, very noisy so not a spot for catching up with buddies. Service was excellent and menu interesting albeit quite heavy on the salt.
Food was excellent, the staff were very good, explained the dishes and were attentive. Definitely one of the better restaurants in the city.
Excellent brunch and fantastic service! The expansive beer list (tap and bottle) is also a delight. This restaurant is definitely a gem in the neighbourhood.
Loved the restaurant. Noise level, however, was too high. I would recommend a few wall mounted decorative sound absorbing panels to help reduce noise. It's a cheap fix.
Arctic Char was excellent. Service was warm, friendly and professional.
Our only concern was the noise level.......
Food was creative and unique. Great ingredients perfextly put together. Extremely good food. Perfect date location. Ask to sit at the bar by the food prep station- best view to the magic.
Great atmosphere, delicious food. Will definitely be back
Felt welcomed as soon as I entered. Very friendly, nice & polite service. My meal choice was very good (Burger) - portion was perfect. Eventhough we were not in a hurry, we have found that it took a bit too long to receive our plates.
Will definitely come back with more friends!
Fantastic food - really great service. Will 100% be back Shawn
Great spot to go for the late night menu.
Fantastic beer on tap, and we'll done cocktails.
The food just isn't at the price level it's priced at.
I've been all over Ottawa to many restaurants and they are just asking too much for what they are delivering. Could boost the portion size too.
Excelkent dining at Bar Lupulus. Charcuterie Board amazing. Shared 3 items among table of 4 as an "amuse bouche" and for $20 was worth every penny. Smoked duck gets special mention. For mains, t
wo of us had the Guinea fowl, and two had the short ribs. Both were a hit with everyone. Desserts were less successful, but mains made up for it. Restaurant way too noisy. Not a place you want to linger if conversation is your thing. Extensive beer and wines! Enjoy!
