About Coup des Tartes

Ranked No. 1 six-years in a row, Coup Des Tartes is a charming, 18-year-old, French bistro-style restaurant reminiscent of la belle epoque and the Roaring ‘20s … Paris-style. Coup Des Tartes maintains its eclectic decor and warmly lit dining rooms in addition to a new outdoor brick patio cooled by old shade trees and lush greenery. Still Phoenix’s longest running french restaurant, the “new” Coup features a bar made from the remnants of its first home. Coved ceilings and candlelit rooms still abound, and Coup Des Tartes maintains its storied reputation as one of the most intimate and romantic dining experiences in Phoenix. Previously a BYOB restaurant we now offer a full selection of artisan cocktails, beer and a strong wine list, you may still bring your favorite bottle of wine or champagne by joining our Wine Club for $45 per year. Arizona State Law prohibits any sprits and limits each guest to 500 ml for wine or champagne.

 (San Diego)·Dined 3 days ago

The owner was in the restaurant and checked in with us to see how everything was. He seemed very engaged in his customer and proud of his restaurant.
The onion soup is amazing with the right amount of oniony taste and little salt. Everyone liked the selections they chose.
The rooms are very cozy and it feels like you're having dinner at a friends house. we recommend it.

The food and service was excellent. The dishes were presented and prepared with care and they were outstanding.
The restaurant is very charming and intimate. We were in a little room (with a few other tables) by ourselves with French music playing softly. A very romantic place. It was a Tuesday, so a little quiet.
I would highly recommend it and would go back.

Had been a favorite place for us - a number of special occasions were celebrated there including birthdays and the day my wife and I got engaged, so when planning my wife's birthday, I knew she would want to go to Coup des Tarts. Not having been to the new location, we were anticipating a great meal and terrific service. Made a reservation 30+ days in advance and specified it was for my wife's birthday. The new place is nice and almost as quaint as the prior location. Server was very nice. The food, unfortunately fell far short of expectations. Seasoned with what seemed to be only salt, and a great deal of it. Both our dishes (different entrees) were well over salted - nearly inedible.
Finally, no mention of her birthday (in spite of me also mentioning it to our server when we were first approached) let alone any sort of birthday treat/desert. We left feeling that what once was our favorite place, was sadly no longer our favorite place.

Wife picked (her birthday) and we went with friends. One friend is a light eater so she was the only one with food left on her plate(s) up to and including dessert (she did take home for another meal). Wine list is somewhat abbreviated but our selection was excellent.

i think it must have been restaurant week food because the menu was very poor. The Filet(not even prime filet) was no joke probably 3-4 ounces served with potatoes and broccoli. Ambience was amazing though. Bottles of red wine were served warm.

Coupes des Tartes has been our family favorite for years, going back to their origin. We were really disappointed when the old restaurant burned down a few years ago, but they have come back stronger than ever with this great space. Beyond the outstanding food, we LOVE the calm and quiet atmosphere. In today's dining world, so many restaurants go for this brash, loud, frenetic environment that make it hard to talk and enjoy a meal. Coupes des Tartes delivers a perfect experience where you can focus on enjoying your companions and your fine food. Service is top notch.

I brought my dear friend here for her birthday to enjoy their tasting menu for Phoenix Restaurant Week! The place was steadily busy, the food was tasty and for the value it was great. The only negatives I would give is we were joined by an outdoor critter and it took a lot longer than expected between the first and second course.

My husband I choose this establishment for our restaurant week dinner. I preselected my menu- quiche, lamb and chocolate tart. I was unable to have the quiche because it contained bacon. The lamb was perfectly cooked and tasty but not special. I enjoyed the Israeli pear couscous. I have recently started using this form of couscous at home instead of the more common version. I was very excited to try a chocolate tart. Because of the name of the restaurant, I thought that tartes must be their area of expertise. My tart was more of a flourless cake. Very good taste but no crust. I was not fulfilled. My husband is French and said that he was disappointedthat the restaurant did not meet his expectations of what he was told is the best French restaurant in Phoenix. He enjoyed his salad, filetmignon and creme brulee but did not think that they were five star. I notice that the restaurant week menu has changed somewhat since we visited so jperhaps they received and responded to feedback. Give them a try and see what you think. Although I cannot recommend this restaurant highly, I may return one day to give them another chance. I would like to try other menu itemsduring a regular week.

A friend and I went to Coup des Tartes during Restaurant Week. Have always loved the restaurant and the food. However, on this night the portions were very, very small. Morever, the waitress seemed harried. I think she was serving others in another room(s) and was running back and forth. The restaurant didn’t even seem busy that night.

I went with a couple of friends to try Coupe des Tartes for the first time. We had all been wanting to try this place, and Arizona Restaurant Week seemed to offer a great opportunity. We we're not disappointed!

The specially priced menu offered three courses for $44 per person. Two of us ordered escargots, and the menu stated these are not typical escargot. A generous portion of snails arrived, without shells, in a yummy butter and wine blend - with a splash of red pepper flakes. Outstanding!!

All three of us ordered the pork chop stuffed with spinach and smoked Gouda and served on a fig reduction. OMG. the sides were Yukon Gold mashed potatoes which were sooo good and nicely done asparagus spears.

Topping off my meal was the chocolate torte with vanilla. Perfect. My friends ordered the berry tarte with vanilla ice cream. Also delicious.

All in all, a wonderful experience. Will definitely return!!!

As a participant of Restaurant Week, I thought it would be worth a try. My husband and I were seated in a small, dark room with three other tables. The restaurant seemed to be fully-staffed; however, service was poor. Our waitress ignored us throughout our dinner and spent her time rushing up and down a hallway. There was nothing special about the food or atmosphere. Even for Restaurant Week, the costs did not warrant the food or lack of service.

Food was FANTASTIC!! We came in for Restaurant Week, tried the escargot, onion soup, scallops and filet.
The atmosphere was whimsical and romantic. Wonderful for a date night.
The downside,
Chari L server our server for the night. She was unpleasant, rude. She never asked how liked the food or refreshed our wine glasses. I suggest you don't sit in her section. Also, forgot our desserts she sent another server to get our order.
I would go back just not have
Chari L as my server. I rather go get the food myself from the kitchen.

This place was recommended by a friend. It did not disappoint. We came during restaurant week and the menu and service were impeccable. Our server was attentive and explained the menu well. Her wine recommendation went very well with our dinner. The crust on the quiche and berry tart was decadent. I had the stuffed porkchop with a date sauce. I am not a huge fan of pork but it had me at smoked Gouda and it sounded too interesting not to try. I savored every bite. I can say I would eat pork here again. My husband had the filet and he was in heaven. I enjoyed th creme brûlée for dessert and my hubby had the berry tarte. We shared our desserts because they were different yet equally delicious!
