First time eating here. The staff was pleasant and helpful with choosing from the menu, and in recommending other vegatarian resources on the city. The atmosphere is intimate, without feeling like you are on top of other people. The food is good, not the absolute best vegan bowls I have ever tasted, but good, real good even. The deserts are...

Hubby and i are vegetarians and were excited to try out this restaurant. We arrived around 7pm, it was really busy and the place was almost full but we found a spot to sit at the bar and were offered a table a short time later. The service was excellent! The staff is very knowledgable and they are very friendly.... More

Incredible experience. The Coup has an intimate atmosphere with an incredible vibe. The service was exceptional and the food.... holy moly.... the food was AMAZING! To start I recommend the "mushroom faux gras cigars" (whipped mushroom & thyme with truffle essence, wrapped in filo pastry served with truffle honey) YUM! For the main event I had the "falafel quesadillas" (falafel,... More

I am not vegetarian, but I really love this place! I've been here twice, the first one when the place hasn't been renovated yet and when the lounge wasn't open and the second time just recently after all renovations have been made. The place has a really cool vibe. I like the atmosphere very much. In my first time, I... More

Strongly recommend Le Coup. Imaginative and creative menu with a great cocktail list as well. Very friendly service and we didn't have to wait long for the food even though the place was full. Good value for money. If we ever came back to Calgary this would be a must visit restaurant.

This has become my favourite restaurant in Calgary. Food is always excellent, the service is good and the newly renovated interior is great. The Tempeh Shawarma is my fave and never misses. For desserts you have to try the raw lemon bar!

Enjoyed an outstanding breakfast here. Unique creations on the menu (mushroom bacon, what?). Place had a cool/hip vibe, yet comfortable and welcoming. Becomes trendy bar by night, I think. Great place for strolling along SW 17 th Ave after you're finished.

The Coup has a very friendly and lively atmosphere but without cramming in tables. We had a fantastic corner table with padded bench seat meaning that we could watch all the comings and goings. Freshly prepared juices (we had cran-mango-ginger and carrot-apple-ginger which were very spicy and just the thing to liven up jet-lagged bodies) were great. We had a... More

Great vegie, vegan and imaginative food, not too expensive, and fun people watching. Like many places in Canada, service was slow but the place was super busy too on a Saturday afternoon.
