It was our first time at The Coup. The restaurant was busy but we had a wonderful experience. The servers were friendly and attentive. The food was delicious. The chimchurri dipping sauce for the yam fries was delicious - a little spicy without the heat. The buffalo wings were delicious but spicy - we ended up using the chimchurri dip... More

A great unique restaurant located on the "Red Mile" in Calgary. A good selection of micro brewery beers. I tried the beet pizza. It was a unique and tasty experience. There were eight of us in our group and we all enjoyed our various dishes. It is a popular place, so arrive early or book ahead.

This has got to be the best place to chow down for a vegetarian, I have been a handful of times, and every time I leave satisfied, the service is super friendly and it's worth the 15-20 minute wait.

I travel for my work and am on the road a great deal. It is very difficult to eat healthy particularly if you prefer vegetarian/vegan food. This restaurant has delicious, healthy food with creativity and fantastic flavours. There are also great beers and wine (and cocktails) on the menu so do not feel that this is not a place to...

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
