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.

Went for lunch and needed to wait for a server to come over for nearly 15 minutes, we had to flag someone down to order our drinks and food at the same time because they didn’t approach us. Food was served in take out containers, which is fine if it is served fairly quickly but we waited 40 minutes for our lunch so the bowls were soaking through the bottom of the cardboard when we got them. Coup is an expensive place for lunch so I was hoping to receive better service when the restaurant only has half of its capacity. Have been here several times and I’m disappointed that this was our experience

Hello, Sarah! Thank you for taking the time to leave us feedback on your experience. From the sounds of it, it might've been a pretty hectic lunch! Regardless, based on your above comments, it was definitely not a lunch that was up to our normal Coup standards. I've shared your review with both our front and back of house staff so that we can learn from the mistakes made. If you have any further concerns or questions, please feel free to email us at info@thecoup.ca! Thank you. The Coup Team

The food is pricey but outstanding.
Service became progressively slower over the course of the meal.
So, I would recommend the restaurant based on quality of the food.

I love The Coup so much, and will totally miss it as I am moving away from Calgary. Both the food and drinks are awesome! Since they make everything from scratch, the food can take a while but this has never taken away from the experience in my opinion as everything is DELICIOUS!

The best part about this restaurant was that there were tons of vegetarian and vegan options. It’s the whole reason we went. The food was priced very high for what you got though. Plus they didn’t have ketchup for the fries which was a bummer haha. The layout was really cool. There was an air of arrogance but that was almost to be expected at a hipster restaurant. I might go again if someone wanted to, but I’d probably check out other calgary options first.

Excellent service and immediate attention from the time of arrival until departure. Very good menu choices. Sat outside which was lovely, but the motorcycles cruising on 17 avenue left a little to be desired, not the fault of the restaurant. Would definitely recommend as a great place for a casual dinner out.

I used to love this restaurant and raved about it. This experience was not great, the food was mediocre. The service was great as always. I will go back one more time to see if it was just an "off" night.

I was disappointed as I brought a friend with me and had raved about how delicious it was, then it was not good at all.

I won't recommend this place to anyone until after I make sure it is back to it's original standard.
