Sauce on the fried mushroom was overly salty.
Soup of the day was very bland and underwhelming. Overpriced for what it was.

The dragon bowl was good however I thought it had too much sauce, otherwise the flavors were excellent.

The Coup has been my go to restaurant for the past 15 years. I LOVE the spicy Peanut Satay so much, mostly every single person who works there knows my order better than I do! I love coming to the coup, sharing the coup experience with family and friends over the years has been an amazing thing to offer my loved ones. Thank you for making every single visit, pick up and overall ambience above and beyond.

I have been to the coup a few times now and I think this was the most disappointed I have been- not sure I would return. The food was WAY too salty and the service was not friendly. There are so many other places on 17th with friendlier service and better food!

Such incredible food and the service was on point. For someone who has a difficult time eating at places due to my dairy allergy the coup was the perfect choice. Would definitely recommend and be eating here in the future

The waitstaff was a bit absent minded- they didn’t fully clear the table when we were done with the appetizer- they left my date’s plate behind. We had to request its removal. They also didn’t leave the appropriate cutlery for the meal, and we had to ask for an empty drink bottle to be removed from the tiny table. There were a few burnt pieces of tofu in my dish, and the pot de chocolate was good but is served in a cute jar that made it impossible to get a nice ratio of raspberry to chocolate. Should have been a ramekin or something instead. I love the coup but the last couple times I’ve been there I’ve been disappointed in the service.

I've been twice now and both times were very pleasurable experiences! This is my go-to now! The food is phenomenal! The portion sizes for the magic dragon bowl and a curry that was on special were quite large, and service was also great! I look forward to going back! Thank you!

The whole experience was wonderful, from first walking in to the last chat with our server before heading out!

I was a bit unsure what I wanted as far as a drink and main (because everything sounded amazing!) And the server helped me decide. I loved my vegan ceasar and was very impressed by the flavor. My main was the Thai Coconut broth and it was a very generous portion. The broth was outstanding and I am now a fan of lotus root. Highly recommend The Coup

The food and the service is by far the best. We are never disappointed with our dinners there. With the whole covid pandemic creating more fear in venturing out. The Coup has really stepped up with their cleanliness. We felt very safe there. Thank you coup for a great evening.

Now owned by the owners of Nourish Bistro in Banff, the Coup which has always been a fantastic dining experience is now even better. The food was outstanding, filling and satisfying. The service was attentive and fast despite two servers holding down the fort for the entire restaurant. They've worked hard to adapt to COVID restrictions. I highly recommend.

The Coup used to be the best meal I've ever had. I don't know what happened but the last few times I've been there in the past year and a half, the food is barely mediocre.

I've been to The Coup several times and have always enjoyed my overall dining experience. On my last visit, my order didn't quite come out as I expected: there was too much sauce in the magic dragon bowl for my liking. Sarah, our server apologized that the dish wasn't up to their standards and took the initiative to make things right by taking the dish off our bill. That was astonishingly considerate of her and reaffirmed why The Coup stands out as a great place to eat in terms of food and service. I'll be returning again.

Responded on October 27, 2020

Carlo! Thank you for leaving an honest and thorough review. We're so glad that Sarah was on top of the issue and was able to resolve it quickly. We've passed along your regards. She's one of the many reasons why we love The Coup so much. Hope to see you and yours again sometime soon! All the best, The Coup Team

My overall experience was good and I was happy with the server I had as well as the food but the guy with the curly hair that greeted me and my boyfriend was rude and very unwelcoming.

I get that working in the food service could be very stressful so I’m not holding it against him but being the only black people in there we felt slightly uncomfortable by him and his overall presence.
