Description: Ranked No. 1 six-years in a row, Coup Des Tartes is a charming, 18-year-old, French bistro-style restaurant reminiscent of la belle epoque and the Roaring '20s, Paris-style. Now in its new home at 1725 E. Osborn Road in Phoenix, Coup Des Tartes maintains its eclectic decor and warmly lit dining rooms in addition to a new outdoor brick patio cooled by old shade trees and lush greenery. Still Phoenix's longest running french restaurant, the "new" Coup features a bar made from the remnants of its first home. Coved ceilings and candlelit rooms still abound, and Coup Des Tartes maintains its storied reputation as one of the most intimate and romantic dining experiences in Phoenix. This combination offers a vibrant venue in which to dine, enjoy great company or host a private party. Previously a BYOB restaurant we now offer a full selection of artisan cocktails, beer and a strong wine list, you may still bring your favorite bottle of wine or champagne by joining our Wine Club for $45 per year. Arizona State Law prohibits any sprits and there is a limit of two bottles (750 ml) for wine or champagne per couple. With a fresh, locally-sourced French-inspired American cuisine menu, Coup Des Tartes is the restaurant to celebrate any special event. Attention to detail and dedication by the entire staff ensures quality and promises to make your dining experience a memorable one. The all-natural and organic nature of the menu, which changes seasonally, is an additional reason why Coup Des Tartes is sought out by even the most discriminating diners. In keeping with the same attention to detail as guests receive in the main house, Coup Des Tartes' new, expanded Rendezvous Room is perfect for private group functions. Coup Des Tartes continues to offer both on- and off-site catering with sister company Rendezvous Catering & Events.

“Warm atmosphere...”
Reviewed December 11, 2012

We had a lovely dinner here the day after Thanksgiving. As others have said it is a small house redesigned as a restaurant, though there is a larger space next door that can be rented for parties, etc. The part we ate in has several small rooms and lots of charm. Flowers all over, friendly staff and a very outgoing owner! He came over to us at one point because we were discussing our dogs and he showed us photos of the new puppy he just got -- then told us about the history of the place and the new restaurant he was just opening down the street. Food was very nice -- especially the veal steak with a yummy mushroom sauce! Several of our party had fish and said it was also quite good. We had brought two bottles of good wine so that !

“Very unique”
Reviewed October 8, 2012

Food was great..a small house converted into a restaurant. You can bring your own wine in for a small corking fee. That was cool. Could use a bit of paint inside...but the atmosphere is cute. Owner is great and came over to give us the history of the house. Loved it!

“Good but pricey”
Reviewed September 14, 2012

Went there for dinner - good food, but expensive and not a big variety on the menu. We were able to bring our own bottle of wine for a corkage fee.

“Home atmosphere with personal Chef”
Reviewed August 26, 2012

This is just like dining at home with a personal chef. It is recommended that you make a reservation. We wanted a small personal dinner and we got it. We had heard a lot about this restaurant and how hard it is to get a table on the week end. This is because it seats less than 40 including the back room. However because of the limited seating Arizona State Law allows you to bring your own bottle of wine. Yes, it is BYOB. You will have to uncork and serve your wine as this is also State law. We ordered a salad each. Roqueforte ($12) and Mixte ($6) One would have been sufficient to split. Then we tried 2 different entrees. Chicken Cordon Blue and Linguini with Fresh Vegetables. Each entree was delicately prepared with a personal touch but perhaps we should have been more adventurous and tried their specials. We tried their chocolate tarte as recommended by our waitress. We expected to be wowed but desert was average. Our check for the evening including the $10 corking fee was $96. Overall we would recommend this restaurant for a personal special evening.
