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
  • "Decided to try this restaurant out for my husband's birthday. Service started out really slow, we had a 6pm reservation and our server had too many tables until the second shift came in. The food was all cooked perfect and was very flavorful. Portions are small for the price and the plates they were on. We didn't end up ordering dessert, so our server just put a candle on a plate to celebrate. Probably should just skip that altogether."

  • "This was our third visit. The food this time was just OK. Soggy fish and chips. The skate which was great has gone from the menu. Drinks are good with a good draft beer list. I see it as more appropriate for bar scene/flatbreads vs dinner. The bar is large and central. A fun space."

  • "We went to Coup D'Etat not knowing exactly why others were drawn to it. For us, in retrospect, it was the exquisitely crafted cocktails that set it apart from other Uptown venues. Our waiter, Mark, seemed much more enthused about describing each of the drinks on the menu than he was in describing the food items on the menu. And that's how we felt when we tried both. The drinks were amazing. The food was adequate. We'd return to Coup D'Etat again, but more for what's in their glasses than what's on their plates."

  • "Food was good and great flavors service was spotty. Waiter was in a zone that didn't include the customer. I shouldn't need to flag down 3 different waiters to get some cracked pepper on my meal. But the flavors were very good. Beet salad and cauliflower were tops"

  • "The food was very mediocre for the price. I took my girlfriend here to celebrate her birthday and they didn't offer anything special for the occasion, which was disappointing."

  • "Oysters, house cured salmon, Corvina were marvelous. We almost passed on dessert but the recommended chocolate cake was worth every calorie. We went Wed. night to avoid weekend crowds"

  • "Coup d'etat is a great place to go when one wants to treat oneself and break out of one's routine. The emphasis there is on quality of food, service, and atmosphere. The dishes are imaginative but not weird. One goes there for the excellent food, and everything else matches that exellence. A good place to take guests froom out-of-town to show off the options in Uptown."

  • "Great, creative food in a great area. Deviled eggs, steak tartare and swordfish were outstanding."

  • "Went here for brunch on Father's day. They did not have the rolling bloody Mary cart as advertised on their website, but the bloody Marys' were raved about by my companions. This space is very cool; open floor plan and unique decor. The food was also pretty tasty, with a few exceptions. The quiche, avocado sandwich and shrimp and grits were very delicious. The vegetable hash was decent (the hollandaise was great, but there wasn't enough veggies) and the egg scramble was a little bit under-seasoned. The service was adequate, but they did appear somewhat understaffed. Overall, I would definitely go back; maybe try dinner next time. Also, seems like a great place for a special occasion!"

  • "Really wanted to like the restaurant but food was mediocre and service was horrible. Getting coffee and tea was an effort. Food was slow and came trickling out so one person was done before another started. Weird thing is that they had lots of staff-just no sense of customer service."
    Dined on 6/15/2014
  • "We enjoyed the food but the noise level made it hard for the four of us to have a conversation."
    Dined on 6/14/2014
  • "Sat indoors on the upper level. Rather loud for the amount of people seated but warming decorum. Took a while to order but food quickly came once we did. Very small fish portion but nicely sized steak for the price and taste."

  • "Very disappointing evening. Very loud music in the restaurant so we went outside where it was even louder. We are love frog's legs but Coup D'Etat's version was right out of the State Fair. Heavily fried with a sweet sauce. Fish and Chips were too salty as well. The restaurant was not busy, but service was very slow. We thought we were in for a French evening, but that certainly was not the case."

  • "We ordered the bone marrow and deviled eggs to start. I had Arctic char and hubby had lamb. Hubby liked the big portions. Beautiful presentation and everything tasted yummy. Wish we had more baguette for the bone marrow but other than that it was awesome. Very lively atmosphere and had a great view of the mixologists from the 2nd floor."

  • "If you are young and into a loud and dynamic bar scene, this place is for you. The architecture and decor are stunning and the patrons are chic. It's definitely a place to "see and be seen". That said...it is incredibly loud and has a somewhat frenetic feel. It was impossible to have a good conversation, even though I was there with only one other person. I cannot imagine trying to converse with a group! The food is artfully prepared and is probably better than I am rating it. In a quieter restaurant I would have been able to focus on it and appreciate it more."

  • "Wonderful food, however I have experienced problems with getting seating. Typically there is a long wait and many open tables. Not sure why but as a waiting customer it is tough to understand the seating process here. With reservations on a Saturday night, we ( a group of 4) were able to get right in --but were denied a booth. We were told by the host that the booths are only for parties of 6. While dining at a table overlooking the restaurant our foursome could not help but notice a party of two having a great time in one of the oversized booth."

  • "Extremely loud! Don't plan on visiting with friends unless you're going to text them from across the table. I ordered the beet salad and the pork tenderloin. The beet salad was good ( not too hard to screw that up) but the pork ( when it finally arrived 40 minutes later) was over-cooked! It was like chewing on thick cut Canadian bacon. The butter beans mushy and the fava beans undercooked. Service was lacking but polite when available. My friends were also underwhelmed and disappointed with the food and the noise level. For the price ($50.00 w/o alcohol) I expect much better... I won't be back as there are too many other restaurants in the Twin Cities that are far better"

  • "I ate dinner at Coup D'Etat with my partner and son. Service was adequate and friendly. We ate around 7 pm on a Wednesday night and most of the tables were open. We ordered the fresh lettuces salad, two thin crust pizzas and the pasta with peas and carrots. The salad dressing overwhelmed the lettuces which were actually fresh. The pizzas were very thin crust, crispy and tasty. The pasta dish, however, was a joke. In the bowl there were about 8 small filled pastas and a "parmesan" broth which looked like thin vege broth that had been foamed. Literally... there was a pile of foam on the pasta. Very unappetizing. The cooks must have felt stingy about the veges too. There were maybe 12 peas and 1 chunk of diced carrot in the midst of the pasta."

  • "Had a great ladies night out here. The small plates were delicious, especially the octopus. Great fish and chicken and the s'mores dessert was fabulous!"
    Dined on 6/3/2014
  • "The two bartenders we encountered were less than enthusiastic. Likewise, our brief encounter with one of the owners was abrupt and off-hand. Our server was very nice but obviously had too many tables assigned to him as he wasn't as attentive as he should have/could have been. Food was unremarkable. My wife's dishes were heavily salted (steak & whipped potatoes). "Stuffed" popover was a congealed mess & burned. My pasta was bland. Our friends liked their char & scallops. Menu & wine prices were good. Restaurant was so loud that we had a hard time hearing each other across the table. We were seated at one of the second-level "window" tables open to the outdoor patio and it was still overly-loud. Doubt that we will return."

  • "Hot spot for dinner or lunch, great patio's. Food is over priced in my mind and the portion sizes are quite small. "

  • "Great specialty drinks and atmosphere. Not a huge fan of the menu change, but haven't tasted everything, only a few items."

  • "Overall, it was a great dining experience. The food was pretty good-the only item we were disappointed in was the halibut, it was overcooked. The scallops and octopus were done wonderful! Service was great!"

  • "Everything was good, but nothing was great. Would not rush back. Try the beet salad, but skip the octopus and scallops. "

  • "The rack of lamb was served close to raw (had asked for medium rare) and was about 80% fat. Amazed they went ahead and cooked these pieces and then went ahead and served them to me. The server was startled to see at the end of the meal that I had been served essentially a bunch of raw lamb fat and removed the charge from the bill. But still, why did I ever get served this in the first place?"

  • "We went here for Sunday Brunch. We had reservations for 11:00, we arrived on time, got seated immediately, and then waited 5 minutes to order iced tea, wait person didn't come to the table to take meal order for another 15 minutes, took another half hour to get our meal, and all we were having was an omelot and the quiche. It took so long to get our food that it was cold, and pretty pedestrian for uptown fair. I suppose if you're going there to drink your meal it would be OK, but eat somewhere else first."

    Dined on 5/17/2014
  • "I have been to the restaurant twice and I can't wait to go back again. The staff goes out of their way to make your day. My husband is afraid it won't last because it's a bar and you can't get a hamburger. But I think the customers in the Uptown area are discriminating enough to love the inspired food served here. And you can get very good, and very unique pizzas, as well as pasta. I loved the salmon appetizer, the octopus with just a hint of jalapeno, the beet salad, and everyone was pleased with their pizzas and pasta. The second time we went to celebrate a birthday and both times we had a baby in tow. They were very accommodating. I will be back to try more menu items. It was noisy, but we conversed without raising our voices."

  • "If you are a "foodie" you will want this on your list. Of course like every great foodie place you will want to bring a wad of money. Flavors were outstanding from the Bone Marrow to the scallops. Saving up for next time. "

  • "We enjoyed Coup D'Etat. The decor is nice and it is multi-level. We were seated up. The appetizers, salads, entres and desserts were presented well and tasty. The cocktails were about what you pay in Uptown and mixed well. The coffee and espressos were very good. The one exception was the brussel sprouts which I had high hopes for. They were overdone and the bacon flavor was drowned out by the how blackened they were. They were not bad enough to send back, but did not live up to the quality of the rest of the meal. All in all I would recommend you check it out."

  • "Mother's day brunch was quite good. They have only recently offered Brunch, and it frankly has yet to catch on. As such, it was not crowded at all. Service was outstanding (our server Maureen was really excellent), and the food was high quality. Our 11 year old son was welcome and felt comfortable. Only downside was that there is not much of a dessert menu (cookies and eclairs only). Cocktails were outstanding."

  • "Everything we had was SO yummy! And even with my food restrictions of no gluten, dairy or egg I had several options. Tue grilled oysters, beet salad and pork entree were very good!"

  • "This was my second visit to this restaurant and once again I was very impressed. We had an early dinner reservation on a Saturday night and the atmosphere was still vibrant and energetic. The three of us each ordered one of the specialty cocktails but the group favorite was the Duck Duck Grey Duck. All three of us had different fish entrees and all were excellent, this is something coming from a group which almost always orders beef! The only negative was the dessert which was okay but just did not standup to the quality of the rest of the meal. I would highly recommend this restaurant for a fun night out on the town!"
