Yummy ...

The service is excellent. The food is always good, and major bonus: they serve wine ! Make sure you show up with your whole party of diners, otherwise you won;t get seated, until everyone is present.

I brought a group of business associates here for dinner this week - five different people with 5 different dietary needs / restrictions etc. All of us raved about our meals - they were really really really (yes one more) really great. From the yam chips with the tzaziki dip to the mushroom soup, to the quesadilla's and the burger... More

First time at The Coup for a business lunch. My colleague had recommended it and I thought it would be great to try it. The restaurant has been recently renovated; it had a pleasant vibe with the tables not too close together. We were promptly seated and the server was quick to bring water and the menus. The menu had... More

We brought our kids here, which was a mistake. It is extremely loud and very busy. The food didn't come fast enough for them (though it was plenty fast for us adults) and the noise was too much stimulation. High chairs would be another key to me visiting more frequently (with children). The pesto pizza was FANTASTIC. One of the... More

Maybe unknown to me but will definitely return. I'm not a vegetarian. That aside I rely enjoyed my meal. As a single guy, I noticed the restaurant was 6-1 women to men. Just an observation. 😀. Average price food and unique menu items that pretty much anyone would enjoy.

In a city like Calgary that's known for its beef, its a pleasure to come across a restaurant that caters to the veggie crowd. All the food is vegetarian, but it seems like everything can be adjusted to accommodate vegans as well. I had the grazer burger (which is a Meal Share option, so you can feel even better about...

I rarely take the time to write a negative review but as a local vegan, I have to say I am extremely disappointed with the Coup. I've been to the Coup numerous times over the last couple years and after the last couple visits I can confidently say I'll never be going back. Right now it's poutine week and I... More

Stumbled upon the coup while searching for a good vegetarian restaurant. We were so happy with the experience that we returned two days later while passing through the city. Certainly highly recommend for anyone looking for local high quality food.

The renovated Coup has only improved its quality and menu over time. I've been going there since it opened and from the drinks to the desserts, to the service and atmosphere it is always a treat to eat there...and I am not even vegetarian.
