There was an error with my order where peanut sauce was provided instead of almond sauce. This is obviously a simple mistake but given the seriousness of peanut allergies more care would be appreciated.

Totally worth the hype! We came in on Friday night and it was completely packed, so we made a reservation for lunch on Friday and I’m so glad we did! The atmosphere was beautiful and welcoming and the food was insane! I got the Beach Front Hot Pot and my friend got the Upstream Burger, and we shared Carrot, Dill and Split Pea Soup. All of it was outstanding! I wish I lived closer so I could try everything on the menu. I’ll definitely be back next time I’m in Calgary. Eating here is an experience everyone needs to have!

You pay for ambiance and presentation, food is good but not for how much you pay.

We had a great night catching up with friends. The food was great as usual - with portions large enough to have leftovers! Truly worth every penny. The Dragon Bowl with tofu was the best.

Service was ok.

Great vegetarian restaurant. A revamped menu has left a little to be desired, but in this economy can be expected. It was good and I would go back, just missed some favorites of the past.

On this occasion, they were out of the kimchi for the “Bun-Me”. So I thought I was settling for the Treehouse sandwich. What a pleasant and highly satisfying surprise - full of flavour, color, and textures. I had mine with tofu. Whereas, my table partners who were having it also really enjoyed their egg version.

We started off with the butternut squash soup and gyoza, which did not disappoint. Just as flavorful and just as filling!

We are definitely returning to this cozy and rich experience again.

I am usually the type of person that rejects vegan food but the food at the Coup was outstanding. I didn't even know it was possible to have food that tastes that good and have it still be vegan. The staff was also very nice and the whole overall experience was great! 10/10 would recommend and 10/10 would return.

I miss their larger menu - and some of the old classic dishes that no longer are there. The mess are large and heavy, which many may like but I miss their lighter entrees.

I found the prices quite a bit higher than expended. Pandemic pricing, I suppose, but it makes it unlikely I’ll be able to eat there again for quite a while.

The table separators, while an appreciated safety feature, made me feel really claustrophobic, squashed into a small corner with the plastic walls - I would have appreciated an option of where to sit (we had a rez and the restaurant was nearly empty when we arrived). It made me very uncomfortable and anxious. Or, they could spread the tables a bit further apart - for the prices, I think it would have been nice to have a bit more space.

As always though, the servers were lovely and customer service was good. The food was not bad, but didn’t appeal to me the way the old menu did.

We sought out The Coup for our 2 nights in Calgary and were not disappointed. Just hard to choose what to try. Excellent vegan/veg choices, very knowledgeable server.

We love The Coup and have waited a long time to return. Two years.
Maybe it is our memory or maybe it has changed a bit.
I had the Upstream Burger and it was more a Sloppy Joe then a burger. The taste of it was good but the burger running over my fingers was not what I was expecting. My wife had the Beach Front Hot Pot, her absolute favourite, has it every time we come. Was different, like way too much coconut milk was added. She left feeling stuffed event though she ate only half of it.
The esthetics of The Coup have not changed much, and we love the option of a vegetarian meal. The wait staff was great. The food, well that seemed off.

I used to love the coup, but it has really gone up in price and down in quality. They need a revamp for sure because the Calgary veg community needs them but deserves better.
