Vegetarian
In 2004, The Coup opened its doors to Calgary and surrounding areas with the desire to provide a modern vegetarian restaurant to the community. Since then we have been dedicated to delivering a vibrant atmosphere and creative vegetarian fare. Our products have been selected based on a deep desire to support local, make everything from scratch, and celebrate the community we are in.

Our bar program has a strong cocktail focus, with great partners who have aligned ethical and ecologically sustainable practices. We focus on local brewers and distillers, and strive to curate a cocktail menu that focuses on ingredients that are local, flavourful, and unique. We strongly believe that the experience of dining, or enjoying cocktails isn’t only for those who drink alcohol. As such, all of our cocktails are available in a non-alcoholic format, as well as a large compliment of other zero-proof offerings.

    The Food was SO delicious. I went with my partner for Valentine's Day, and their set menu was excellent. It was jam-packed, but that's normal for Valentine's Day. I recommend it if you are looking for a remarkably creative and tasty plant-based meal :)

    Our Valentines Day date night was fantastic at The Coup, we were joined by three of my buddies from Highschool (1970's) and our wife's. Food was great, service swift and we were not rushed. Highly recommend this restaurant.

    Food was good. Great assortment of vegan and vegetarian dishes. Cocktails are made well and garnished appropriately. Server seemed overwhelmed, forgot spoon with hot pot, left the table waiting on our bill for a long time then came by frantically saying she knew she had forgotten to check one of her tables. I’ve had much better experiences here.

    This vegetarian restaurant is superb. Our waitress was fun, friendly and super helpful when we asked if she could just bring us some of their best dishes. Her choices were great and head chef Jules was also lovely and did not disappoint. The food is plant-based whole food which is exactly what our party of 6 was hoping for. Must haves include satay broccoli, shimeji mushrooms, fried Brussels, the red mile, end of summer and the Ube cheesecake. When I go back, I will be having them all 😁 Samantha

    This was my second visit to the Coup. I am not a vegetarian and my daughter initially encouraged to step out of my comfort level and just "try it". I was surprised and delighted because I loved the food. So, when planning a friend's special luncheon I reserved at the Coup. I was even more delighted this time. The waitress was absolutely patient as I moved about to find a table that would provide acoustics that would accommodate my friend's hearing issues. Being in a small group allowed us to sample a fairly decent variety of the dishes on the menu. Each was just delicious. And I am a fussy eater. So thank you for making this a truly lovely occasion. I will definitely be back.

    Charming restaurant with an intimate setting, attentive service, and a great playlist set to just the right volume. Everything was delicious! I ordered a variety of mushroom dishes and they all arrived hot and fresh at a really nice pace. *The Mushroom Bacon Nigiri was unlike anything I'd had before* It's so relaxing to enter a restaurant and know you don't have to worry - everything is plant based. Highly recommend!!!

    We had a reservation and seating on New Year's Eve. It was a fixed price five course vegan and gluten free menu. Service was very friendly and timely (not too fast) even though the restaurant was almost full. Great ambiance. The food was fantastic, every course was very well presented. Definitely going back!

    Our server was wonderful and made some great suggestions. Very attentive and I look forward to going back again. My favourites were the Watermelon ahri nigiri, very good texture to it that mimics the protein counterpart. The Black Dragon roll were to die for and I need to go back to have it again.
