Coup des Tartes is one of my favorite places to eat in Phoenix and we usually try to go a few times a year. I would recommend making a reservation in advance, as it can be hard to get in. We typically go with a rather large group and call about 2-3 weeks in advance. Additionally, if you're interested in going during restaurant week, try for an earlier reservation as they can run out of some of the offerings by the end of the evening.
Service is usually very nice but unhurried, so plan on being there for a little bit. The escargot is always a treat and the lamb shank is absolutely amazing. You can tell the lamb shank has been cooking for some time as the flavors are really infused and the meat just falls off the bone. The chocolate caramel tart is one of the best desserts I have ever had. It is really rich, so if you're not into rich desserts plan on sharing. In my case, I love rich desserts and while I usually share with my husband, I make him get his own slice here.
The BYOB policy is a nice way to save a little money, but the corking fee is $10/bottle if my memory serves me. While this is a little more than other BYOB places I've been to, it's nice to be able to bring something you know you're going to enjoy.
