A word from Coup D'Etat
A smart and stylish restaurant and bar. Coup D'etat is ideal for groups large and small, it offers a private dining room and throughout the restaurant there are lounge areas, tables, and booths for smaller groups. The food is approachable, modern, and contemporary. The cocktail program is equally smart with reinterpretations of classic drinks as well as new creations.Continued

Diner Reviews
  • "Packed full of flavor, each dish has a nice full taste. The gnocchi is delicious! Highly recommend the mussels too. Inviting for large groups and has a very fun atmosphere."
    Dined on 8/23/2014
  • "I have been to Coup D'Etat 4 to 5 times and have never been disappointed! I love this place. The atmosphere is energetic and hip, the food is amazing with lots of healthy selections, and the servers are consistently good. Everyone there is always having a great time so it is a fun environment with a full bar and extensive beer and wine list AND great food. I have been there each time in groups of 3 or 4 and it is the perfect setting for this."

  • "We had dinner for the first time at Coup D'Etat and it was fantastic! The service was really good. The food was excellent and for once the portions were of normal size and not the usual huge portions you get at other restaurants. We actually had room for dessert and didn't feel overly stuffed when we were done. When the staff brought the food to the table they described the food, which was more than what was in the menu. The s'more dessert was excellent and had ice cream that tasted like a marshmallow off of the campfire. Well done! We'll be back."

  • "I was so excited to check out this new place, ever since it took the spot of my favorite hang out spot (cowboy slims). They ran out of a bunch of food that I wanted to order and we waited forever for our meals. I guess the food was good if they were out of certain dishes? Just wished I had been able to order what I had ben eyeing all week on their menu. The bartender said they were getting all new menus and to come back and check it out...so we will go back. I hope it's better! On a side note their wine cellar is absolutely ridiculous (in a good way!). If you have a chance to to the bathroom and look down."
    Dined on 8/22/2014
  • "Such a good location and terrific decor and yet underwhelming food. Our party of 6 had beef, pork, pasta, fish and all were bad. Unfortunately it looks like their best item was one we didn't order - the pizzas looked great walking by. Ok service nice wine& beer choices. Won't return for food!"
    Dined on 8/21/2014
  • "We found this to be about the "Scene" not the food. Our waitstaff was more like an upscale bartender. She was polite and friendly but no knowledge of the food she was serving. At $75 per person I have some expectations: 1.) The server should know the menu and some details about the food, 2.) Filtered cold water, 3.) Something unique on the menu. None of these criteria were met. None of the food was bad and at the same time nothing was good. I would consider going for a cocktail and eating before or after elsewhere."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Love this place. If you are up for unusual, high quality food and don't mind a higher price this is the place. Way out of the ordinary. The speciality drinks were terrific too."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "It was a nice restaurant to eat outside; middle of Uptown. However, they were out of almost everything when we went on a Sunday afternoon. Then after being told we could order from the happy hour menu, when the bill came we were told that happy hour ended a few hours ago and were charged full price. Had we known, we wouldn't have ordered so much. I thought the dinner was lovely, they brought the food out to us hot; waiter was great! Friendly. However, didn't think a meal between 2 people should have been $65."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "I thought the service was great. The food was over salted and not very original. My dinning partners indicated to me that this was their 5th visit and felt the food has gotten poor over time."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "We were very disappointed with the food. Everything was too salty and unimaginative. The menu was limited, especially for me because I'm gluten free. We will not be returning. Also, when you open all the windows and it's a warm humid night, the temperature becomes quite uncomfortable inside. Think about putting in large ceiling fans or closing the windows."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "I have dined here a handful of times.... Everytime very disappointed in how long the service takes (ridiculous amount of time to get a beverages and food). I kept coming back in hope that service would be better/faster, but after dinner on Sat night, that will be my last time I visit this establishment. Our dinner took 2.5 hours which is ridiculous (esp when we were ready to order everytime our waitress came by)."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Two friends and I went to Coup D'Etat on Saturday, the 16th. We ordered drinks. I wanted a Southern Comfort Old Fashioned and one of my friends wanted a J & B Scotch. The bar did not have either of these liquors. We opted for something else. One of my friends said her dinner was "o.k.". She has the beet salad and scallops. My other friend ordered the Sea Bass and said it was the worse Sea Bass she'd ever had. I ordered the polenta and the pork tenderloin. The pork was o.k. but quite ordinary. The ploenta was so salty I could hardly eat it. Needless to say we will never be dining at Coup D'Etat again. The guys manning the valet stand were terrific."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "The food has gone downhill since it opened. Our first meal was fabulous. This time, no so much. Our scallops were over salted and the beet salad was inedible. The fish and chips came with a few overcooked slices of potato - not really "chips" in my mind, but the fish was good. Not sure we're going back."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Beer salad and gnocchi were both great. Fun cocktail menu. Nice place to do share plates."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "The menu looked great on-line, sadly the quality did not live up to my expectations, the entrees tasted too much of salt and garlic, the restaurant was not overly busy yet we waited far too long for our food. Perhaps the kitchen was having a bad night, who knows, it was my first and most likely my last visit to this restaurant. Very disappointing to say the least"

  • "Great drinks - Good Food. Bring back the frog legs"
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "Love Coup d'Etat--but Thursday night was so noisy (was it a local Hell's Angels gathering?) conversation was almost impossible. Perhaps some kind of plantings could provide visual and noise barrier to on street racket. I will not sit street side again. Food off the grid good, service--great, drinks tasty. Noise the big deterrent."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "Love the decor. Food VERY good. This will be a great winter scene with open spaces lots of light. Their lox was great. Mussels large and properly cooked. Will be back"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "We had dinner upstairs near the open balcony. The view was nice. The food was great and the service was as well. The cocktails were unique and tasty. I would come back."
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "The menu is very limited, the portions extremely small and mine was pretty much tasteless Crab Fetticini and the prices relatively high. They screwed up a Mojito, tasted like lemonade (I sent it back). The one fish entrée on the menu, they didn't have, this was 7:oo pm on a Tuesday night. We would never consider going back"
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The food was OK, we had an app and a couple of salads and left for another spot because we didn't think the entrees would get better. The drinks they made were way too sweet, but they remade it and it was OK. A nice atmosphere and service was good, but there are dozens of places with better food."
    Dined on 8/4/2014
  • "First time at the restaurant and very much enjoyed the meal."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "If you are a foodie you will love Coup D' Etat. The menu offers a variety of selection for your standard dinner as well as someone with a more advance pallet. The service we received was outstanding due to our server Ashley who steered us in the right direction with all our menu choices. I would definitely go back for a late night dining experience or for appetizers. It gets to be a little $$ with drinks, apps, and dinner but well worth it in the end!"
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Quite disappointing to see the items that received good reviews 6 months ago no longer available (artic char, rack of lamb,roasted Brussels sprouts) explained as a seasonal change but devoid of worthy replacements.May explain why open tables existed on a Saturday evening even though reservations were apparently full from 6 to 9pm."
    Dined on 7/26/2014
  • "Our waiter was very friendly and professional - correcting an error on our wine tab and even running downstairs to get our car from the valet. Love, love, love the dinnerware! My asparagus plate was stunning!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "My wife and I went here during restaurant week and we tried a lot if their items. The scallops were amazing and the fettuccini was very good. The roasted beats (appetizer) were simply amazing, and our deserts were excellent. The food was 5-star quality with a beautiful presentation. We were able to eat upstairs with outdoor seating, which I think was worth the wait. The service was excellent!"
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Reading the menu on line we thought it was quite limited and thought we were in for bar food with a few innovations. This impression was reinforced when we walked into this handsome, trendy very crowded bistro atmosphere situated in a trendy reclaimed area of town, teeming with other trendy bistros. Well we were very pleasantly surprised. Although preparations were hardly exotic, everything was well prepared, the bass, scallops and even the ultimate bar food-fish and chips. Starters were very good. The "cheap" bottle of wine from Provence was excellent (we had two for our party of four). We hesitate to mention that the wine was that good lest they raise the price. Service was excellent, friendly and attentive. We will be back."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "I loved the food, service, and the ambience of the restaurant. The outdoor seating is really lovely and chandeliers inside add a very chic touch. And the food was surprisingly reasonably prices and delicious!"
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "Went here for restaurant week, and enjoyed the menu. We were a bunch of high maintenance eaters (3 gluten free and 1 vegetarian!) and the waiter accommodated all of our needs. It is a huge space, hip and pretty loud. Not my usual type of place (I like smaller more intimate spots), but I can see how some people would really enjoy it. Good cocktails - loved the Dealers Choice where you allow the bartender to make something up for you. Corkage is $20."
    Dined on 7/24/2014
  • "At on the outdoor patio upstairs and it was wonderful, food was great, and service was attentive. Was very happy we didn't eat inside, it was so loud you could hardly hear yourself think."

  • "great food all around with a twist. it's meant to be contemporary american but it's more italian or french"

  • "Came here for my birthday dinner and as part of restaurant week. I had been here for drinks only before and was excited to try this place due to good reviews in local publications. Our entrees took over an hour to get, they were out of the desserts we wanted, and when we did finally get our entrees, they were cold and improperly cooked. We did speak with management and they made several concessions on our bill as well as offered a gift card to encourage us to come back once they make changes. Overall - not pleased with our experience this night but relatively happy with how management handled the situation. Our server was great, although she was openly embarrassed we had such a bad experience. The cocktails are great."
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "The service, the food, the beer selection, the atmosphere...what more can I say? This place is perfection. Asparagus topped with prosciutto and lemon-tinged polenta was superb and I thought I was in heaven when tasting the spinach fettucine with crab. We were able to try a large variety of pale ales and the wine list was impressive, to say the least. Dining at Coup D'Etat is a must!"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We took advantage of the Restaurant Week deal to try this restaurant. Main room is large and airy. Balconies are more cozy. The service was excellent. I commented to my wife that on our visit the servers seemed a cut above the norm. Very happy, enthusiastic and knowledgeable. We ate eary enough the place was not just packed, but there were no complaints at all about the speed of service. The speciality cocktails were as creative and fun as advertised. Food was very, very good. My scallops were large and perfectly cooked. My wife raved about the linguini. The only negativefor old ears suffering tinitis, is that the rooms are very "live" and the sound level, even when only moderately crowded, was getting to me by the end of the meal."

  • "We enjoyed the food at Coup D'Etat very much but it is way too loud. We spent the night yelling at each other just to make small talk"
    Dined on 7/22/2014
  • "We tried Coup D'Etat for restaurant week and were glad we did. It was a wonderful dinner. The salads were just the right size and filled with great choices as were the entrees for the quality of food preparation. The scallops and spinach linguine were fantastic and it was clear they do not hold back on the best ingredients. Our server worked hard to please us as did the bartender when we arrived early for a cocktail. We will be back."

  • "Dined here for restaurant week with a table of 6. Love the ambience - go check out the 'party room' - it's beautiful! We love the food, esp the beet salad, the pork tenderloin was cooked perfectly and the desserts were delish! so glad this new restaurant is in Uptown!"

  • "such a nice place, good food...asked server if fish wild caught, no hesitation she said 'yes'...why is that not then listed on menu, seems rare enough to find wild caught it would be listed as wild caught...my only complaint is on open table well in advance only times for reservation of 2 people was 5pm or 8pm...and the restaurant from 5 to 8 while we were dining...over 3/4 empty...what is up with THAT???"
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "We went to Coup D'Etat to celebrate a milestone birthday. We ordered steak tartar and polenta to share as appetizers and each of us ordered a main course. To have to say the wine was the only pleasant part of the meal is really hitting a low point in a rating scale. The main courses were in some cases bland and overcooked (sea bass), in other cases, too salty and only a poor imitation of what the dish should have been (two pasta dishes). Overpriced for food that was not well-prepared. I have never cared to or taken the time to write a negative review, but because this was such a special occasion for us and all of us were very disappointed, I thought I should. May others be warned and not make the same expensive mistake."
