We also ordered be eggplant sleeping bags appy, mushroom faux gras cigar appy, shared the satay bowl with the spicy almond sauce (this was really spicy). We were really happy... More

Great place even if you're not a vegetarian. The food is always tasty (actually I lie, I had 1 thing there that I didn't like, but it was a special, not a regular menu item.) Interesting cocktails and lots of variety. Love the space after the renovation.

As a meat eater THE COUP is not a restaurant I would have chosen on my own but I was eating with a pretty hard core vegan so I agreed to go and give it a try. My first impression was that this place has a lot of atmosphere and was cleary in demand as we waited in a pretty... More

Seemed really hyped up online and was looking forward to it. Had the cajun tempeh stick to start which were ok. For mains we had the falafel quesadillas - far too much pickle and pretty dry. The other main was the burger which was also dry and over pickled. For desserts we had the ice cream sandwiches which were the... More

After a two hour walk along the Elbow River we looped back along 17th Ave Sw looking for brunch. We stopped at The Coup, where we had enjoyed dinner a couple of years ago. This was about 11 AM Sunday morning and the place was hoppin'. There was a good vibe. We were pleased with the upgraded, upscale décor resulting... More

Have been with my wife many times. The food is so fantastic! Good portion sizes. The service is as good as any service anywhere. Have found it a little crowded. If you don't mind it a little crowded. This is the place to be.
