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.

“Wonderful Evening”
Reviewed January 18, 2014

Last night was my first night at this lovely restaurant. The restaurant is in a house off of Camelback Road. I highly recommend reservations because the restaurant is small and intimate. When we arrived for our 6:30 pm reservation there were only about four tables occupied and we were seated at what I think was the worse table right by the kitchen. Fortunately my date asked to be moved to a better table. By 7:30 pm the restaurant is quite full so I would request a specific table because there are two that sit near the kitchen. The staff consisted of the hostess and a female server for the two rooms. All did an excellent job and were attentive and friendly. We ordered two starters, the Brie Brulee and the Three Onion Tarte. My favorite was the tarte. We split a salad which was nothing outstanding. For dinner we both ordered the Sea Bass. This dish was spectacular! We ordered two desserts, a lemon tarte and a chocolate tarte. I thought they were average at best. The desserts reminded me of something I would purchased at Whole Foods or AJs, they look spectacular but lacked anything interesting. Most tables consisted of couples on dates dressed up for the evening. If you are looking for a nice restaurant to take a date, this place is the place!
BTW - they will be moving to a new location around March to May.

“Fantastic French, intimate dining”
Reviewed October 13, 2013 credit card Amex Card Member Review

My wife and I love this quaint, French restraint. We've always been blown away by the food, enjoy that it is BYOB, and really appreciate that it is a small intimate venue. We always celebrate life occasions here. It a bit pricey, and often we only go when we have a coupon... But it worth every penny for the unique dining experience.
