If you are not a millennial.... here are better more authentic Italian restaurants, with better customer service, better food and better more knowledge servers that at Lupo's. Shucks, I don't mind spending money, but if you want value for your money, Lupo Verde is overpriced and simply has lack luster customer service from the host to the manager to waiter. By the way, if a servers original language is not English and they can't speak very clear English or speak it quickly or don't enunciate, why would you have them serving tables?

Very delicious food! Pasta portion was a little small but wasn't left super hungry. Sitting by the bar meant service wasn't that great.

We’ve been to Lupo Verde numerous times and had a pretty good experience however this occasion was less than average. They have 2 types of chairs upstairs - 1 with back support that is nice and 1 type of chair that feels like you are constantly sliding off the chair because the cushion is too large and the chair has no support because it’s curved a backwards angle. We were seated at the later type of chair and I had to have them switch our seats because it was so awful. Then we waited 10 minutes until the waiter took our drink order. First course came out and it was nice but waiter didn’t pay attention to our drinks, we had to flag down the busboy to get the waiters attention to get another round of drinks. While we waited our entree came but they hadn’t cleared our first course. Initially we would have ordered a bottle but at this point the service was so bad we just wanted to leave so ordered a glass of wine and asked for the check before we had finished. Not impressed. Next time we will sit at the bar because at least we know someone will pay attention to us if we are sitting right there

The server was very bad, didn’t know his menu, gave poor advise on kids food, was not attentive to our table throughout the meal, and was not particularly polite.

We were served small warm water glasses only refilled once. The food was ok but not very good. We had dinner there at least three times before but it seems to have gone downhill

Lupo Verde was such a great experience!

The food: Classic, simple, outstanding Italian. It was very clear the pasta was made fresh. Flavors were nuanced and well balanced. The bonbolinis are a must!

The ambiance: Our favorite part of the experience was their space! It is beautifully decorated, and has a very homey feel.

Service: The bartender was also our waiter; as the night went on, it was clear she was busy, and so we didn’t get her full attention. While with us, though, she gave great recommendations and was nice enough.

All in all, our favorite Italian spot in DC thus far. Will definitely be back!

Worst service, waited on separate meals for over 45 minutes. Waiter was rude. Asked for bread 6 times and had to serve myself bread as well as olive oil.... have been coming here for ages and will never return. The manager did not handle the complaints or the cold and under cooked food. How can this place say they are authentic Italian when families in Italy would be embarrassed to serve this food.

Wonderful food served in a beautiful restaurant with charming ambiance. The staff is friendly and helpful, the service was fast, and the food delectable. The bagna cauda fried artichokes in particular were one of the best things I've ever eaten.

The music was a bit loud, but we were seated right under the speaker, and it wasn't so loud we couldn't converse.

Lupo Verde is one of our favorite restaurants in the city. Whether with kids or a romantic date or an adult dinner, it's a fantastic choice.

Food and service were excellent. Tables were set very close together; it was difficult to feel any sense of privacy or intimacy when you are constantly overhearing the conversations next to you and the waiter has to talk over your head to speak to other diners.

We order two pasta dishes and they were delicious. Unfortunately, the appetizers were not as good. The sardines were really fishy, just not good, strong favors and extremely oily and fried. Also, the octopus and potatoes was saggy, a lot of sauce. While the octopus was good the rest of the dish was oversaturated with sauce and condiments. Sometimes less is better.

This was my birthday dinner and my first real night out in DC since I moved here from Florida and I was not disappointed. The food was authentic Italian, the service was personal and impeccable, they brought us limoncello and tiramisu for my birthday and made the whole experience really incredible! Prices great for the quality and experience!

(Note: We did not stay to seat here) Arrived and seated downstairs despite booking upstairs. Tried to explain to host but quickly realized he had a speech challenge so let the matter drop. Got sat in. Post bar abs presented with overpriced limited menu with few choices. To make matters worse, the red wine list started at $50 per bottle and was mostly higher. While expect that at a bit finer dining, we all found it insulting considering we felt we were dining at a bar with bar food. After server took so long to return to our table, we all 3 decided it was best to leave. $200 wasn’t going to be worth it for dinner in that place.

My salmon dish came, initially, without the salmon. The waitress forgot our order of olives and brought them only when she was reminded (and she asked if we still wanted them). There were about 7-8 olives provided for $9. However, the olives were the best part of the meal. The food itself was not interesting and the smoked salmon, when it came, was fishy. We will not return.
