Lupo Verde Ratings and Reviews

Five of us dined at Lupo Verde on a Thursday evening. We were seated right near the front door, which was not ideal, but was all that was available even though we had a reservation. We were concerned the space would be too noisy for good conversation, but it was fine. The food was quite tasty. Four of us had pasta dishes; they all were good. Note that the pasta portions are not large, but they were plenty as we also shared a salad. The fifth person had tomato soup and a salad; both were quite good. We would definitely return.

I visit DC often on business and use the opportunity to catch up with friends. I have dined at Lupo Verde twice now and had wonderful experiences. Great food, variety on menu, good options for Vegetarians and great atmosphere. Located on vibrant 14th street but great for a conversation with friends or a date!

The food we had was very good although the portions seemed small. Perhaps they expect customers to purchase primi, secondi, etc. They should have mentioned that if that's the case. The waiter was attentive at first but he abandoned us to another waiter. The second waiter was not attentive at all, and after a 30 min wait for desserts (with one request to the second waiter for a status on the desserts) the manager came by. When we repeated our problem, the desserts suddenly appeared. And they were rather disappointing. They did not charge us for the desserts after we requested that. The building is attractive and a good location. They need to fix some things before I would go back. We appreciate the managers intervention but it shouldn't have to come to that.

This was the least authentic Italian food imaginable. I ordered the burrata and was presented with a Safeway quality mozzarella. The pesto I ordered was made with the sauce base prepared for the cacio e pepe and the final product was inedibly salty. Both dishes were sent back and the waiters and managers were very gracious and brought us free dessert. I had come to lupo verde a year before and the food had been impeccable. Unfortunately, I later found out, the day before had been the former chef's (an italian) last day. That day was the new chefs new day, but there must have been a new sous chef as well for how poorly those dishes had been prepared.

Food was amazing- fried artichokes were best we've ever had. The main courses were perfect, martini's were stellar. We were disappointed to be sat upstairs, and then even more disappointed to be on the through-lane to the bathroom and kitchen stairs since we had reservations days in advance- not just a walk in where they had to put us at a table. The outdoor patio looked marvelous, and the downstairs was spacious with open windows to the outside. Basically- if they lead you to the stairs ask again to be seated downstairs, but if all else, go with it because the food makes up for the cramped quarters.

I have eaten several times since it opened and I found the food and service to be good. But I was disappointed with the management. When my party arrived, we were seated at a communal table with 3 other people across from the bar. The high stools were unsteady and uncomfortable. When I requested a private table, I was told that many tables were used for a private function. I informed the staff that in the future, that management should inform diners at the time (or even after) reservation about seating arrangements.

Wonderful, just wonderful. We were exhausted after a long drive from Boston and settling my son at his college. The food and atmosphere were great, and the day was transformed into a special occasion. Highly recommended.

A friend recommended the place but we were disappointed with the food. We had focaccia very oily and we got a plate with olive oil to deep focaccia in it. The pasta we ordered were not great. Maybe the only good thing was the dessert. It is true that most people around us did not eat but had drinks. Maybe this is what we should have done.

We had not been there since Christmas eve which was a lovely time. When we went back this summer, we had wondered why this was not on our list more frequently. The food was delicious and the service was attentive but not overly bearing. We will be back much sooner!

W O W we were so happy we found this restaurant for our first evening during our stay in Seattle! The food was really sumptuous and our server, Bruce, was helpful, professional and friendly. He even gave me a tin of one of the special seasoning, za-atar, to take home. My husband had and really enjoyed the pork chopped seasoned with it. We will definitely recommend this restaurant and hope we have an opportunity to go again sometime.

I've been here for dinner and the food is amazing. On this occasion I was there for brunch which was sadly very disappointing. My dining companion ordered the eggs Benedict and was unable to eat it: tons of sauce, mealy texture and a gigantic portion. I ordered a pasta dish that was average at best. The brunch menu looked subpar but perhaps we should have stuck with that. Will not be back for brunch.

Restaurant was clearly having some mechanical issues
- they were out of lot of things on the menu (no pizza, several other items). after we placed order, the waiter came back and apologized that they were out of the scallops...and we had to pick something else...even
the dessert we ordered...they came back and said it wasn't available...
A tad frustrating...but they handled it well - comped several items, sent over a prickly pear digistif - and were very apologetic. Food we had was great...

Lupo Verde was one of a few restaurants that accepted the Open Table gift certificate. Service was a bit slow but the food is delicious. It was quiet for a weeknight as well. A little too pricey to eat here all the time though!

Food is very well crafted and delicious. Service, however, was sorely lacking. We waited for ten minutes after being seated for the server to arrive. The server paid little attention to our table throughout the meal, and never asked if we wanted additional drinks. Took forever to provide the bill when asked. During our entire meal, we were one of only three tables occupied.
