    The food was fine but pricey for what it was The beer list is terrible but perhaps they are being ironic

    First time at Lapinou! What a find! Absolutely understanding why this amazing spot has mention in the Michelin Guide. Craft Cocktails were creative and interesting. Fried cheese and rock shrimp apps were great, as were our mains which included the Ramen and Beef Wellington. Ambiance was lively and our bar seats were perfect. Service was outstanding... notable mention to Asher, Juls and Tatiana, for making our visit so enjoyable!

    Excellent Host and Wait Staff, couldn't ask for a better curator. We had the Fried Cheese Crudo Tartare Steak Broccolini Cocktails café jalisco lower east side solstice paper plane hemingway daiquiri The shareables were great. Cocktails were good. Did they blow my mind away? no. But the real let down was the steak. Excellent seasoning and smokey flavour from being cooked on charcoal, but it was sitting in pool of butter. IMO, that took away charcoal flavoring that the steak offered because there was so much butter. It literally over powered the flavor of the meat. Hard pass for me.

    We got an assortment of food and drinks. All of which were nothing to write home about, which is disappointing since we’ve been here before a while ago and remembered it being fantastic. The appetizers (crudo, carpaccio and oysters) were okay. The carpaccio was definitely the better of the three and the oysters were the least, being overdressed in vinaigrette. Our mains were alright, but for pasta dishes, we felt the portions were small, and we left still hungry, even after ordering what seemed like enough food.

    Went with 7 others for my birthday dinner, tried most of the menu sharables and for the “for the table” options. Everything was amazing and well priced. Service was a little slow but the server was very nice and informative on menu items. Would highly recommend!

    Went for a late dinner with a friend on a Saturday evening. Portions are quite small. Service was good. Wine list is pretty decent. Noise level is quite high but didn’t bother us. There was a dj which is always a nice touch. Overall it was a good dining experience.

    Very different menu from my last visit, aimed at sharing. Not bad but not as chic as it was...

    Food and drinks were really good. We enjoyed the fried cheese, which the honey paired really well. The Canestri pasta was really good - it was a curry pasta sauce and we loved the flavours in it. The only downside was the amount of Bucatini we got - we could count the amount of noodles on the plate. Our waiter was friendly.

    For our 12 years anniversary, my wife wanted to go to Lapinou. We got dressed up, drove an hour in the rain. When we arrived the first thing out of the hostess mouth was: "you need to leave your table by 8:30" - What? Not "Welcome" or "Is this your first time joining us?" or, checking the reservation and seeing its our anniversary? Horrific start - however a older man came and explained the menu with a great amount of detail and I thought "okay, this is what I was more expecting". All this was undone after are appetizers arrived. We waited 1 Hour for our pasta. No one came to ask how we were doing, no one make to refill out water or get us drinks. 1 hour as we watched everyone around us get served. Maybe we were tucked in the corner? NOPE - we were the table right in front of the cash register - every server got to watch us get more miserable as the hour went on. Finally a young asian gentleman at 45 menus went to check for our order us. and 15 minutes later it arrived. The balls on our waiter to come after we finished eating to ask how everything was as if he didn't disappear was the icing on the cake. No dessert for us, we went to McDonalds after since we figured they might have more class and better service.
