Wine was fine but our server was surprisingly rude. Kept asking us about food even though everyone around us was also getting only drinks, and had to get signoff from management when we declined food (at 530pm). Gave us the check before I even asked for it and kept checking on it so we would pay (while not bothering the tables of men drinking around us). Keep in mind this is just two girls grabbing a drink early on a Friday. Ambiance was nice but not enough to make up for the rushed and inconsiderate service.

I have been to Lupo Verde before - about 2 years a go. It was slightly disappointing this time around. We did not receive bread. The cacio pepe barely had any pepper on it. The food came extremely fast (not in a good way). It was still tasty, but I don't think I'll be returning.

This is the sixth time I have gone to Lupo - It is the perfect brunch/date spot, with great ambiance and a nice menu.

Pros:
Fresh Dishes
Great Cocktails
Price
Ambiance
Management

Cons:
Several times the menu descriptions to not match up with what you get, example: Granola Parfitt which I have order four times and each time there has not been the fruit/nuts/honey as listed... When I brought this to the severs attention it was ignored.

Patio Seating near the staff door: A lot of private work conversations with servers/runners that you do not want to hear about while eating, I don't want to hear about how hot the staff think someone is, how much they hate their job/colleague, and other "locker room talk"... If eating outside I suggest not sitting next to the back doorway.

Staff: It is very hit or miss, the mangers and many of the waitstaff go above and beyond to make you feel welcome and taken care of.... While some staff make you feel that you are a bother (check in, staff rushing you to order with being there for less than five minutes) I will give everyone grace as this has been a rough year and they are doing their best.

Overall I would come here again and again and have suggested Lup dozens of times for out of town guests and clients.

We really enjoyed our dinner outside in the covered patio. The food and wine were excellent and our server was attentive and fixed our wobbly table quickly. Nothing but positive things to say about our dinning experience.

Disappointing experience with food taking more than an hour to arrive. They kept saying "two minutes." I know things are getting back up to speed, so just be honest.

I had a table outside and the only issue was hearing some conflict between people on the street right off the patio. Otherwise it was extremely lovely and the food and drinks were delicious.

Wow! Starting from the moment we walked in the door where we were greeted by a fantastic hostess, the great service continued throughout the meal. We were seated in a beautiful table in the upstairs dining room. The food somehow exceeded the quality of the service which didn’t seem possible. Can not wait to return.

The food was spectacular. Can not recommend that enough. There is a distinct difference between that and the service that was offered up.

First off if I show up 15 minutes or after a reservation often times that leads to a charge of some sort. So it is difficult to comprehend being seated 20 minutes after my reservation time. During this wait, I presume the manager, offered us a drink while we waited. Perhaps I wrongly assumed that the “drink while you wait” would be on the house due to having to wait 20 minutes after the reservation time to sit (this is not the reasoning for my poor service review).
The waiter was completely indifferent to either his job or our table, not sure which. First off the table next to us was sat after us and had their order taken first. We then had to ask for bread which was dropped at their table upon them sitting. At the end we asked for a dessert menu. After not getting one we asked again and the waiter blamed someone else for not dropping it at our table. We then asked for our wine to be Corked so we could take it home. Eventually he brought the bag to seal the bottle but told us to do it.

Really liked the waitstaff, the sommelier, the maitre'd, and the setting, but it just felt pretty average for the price you pay. DC doesn't have great Italian, but there are definitely places that do it better and for cheaper.
