There is no other place I'd rather eat. As an herbist and plant food chef myself, I love to be inspired and served creations I can't make at home. This place never dissapoints. The blend of incredible expertise, alchemy of ingenious ingredients, and loving energy of this space makes it one of my favorite places on earth 💖

The food was absolutely delicious, the staff were really helpful and kind. The only downside is we were put right by the kitchen so it was quite noisy because they keep their kitchen door open.

I have worked in the restaurant industry for 15 years and having recently switched to a meat and dairy free diet, my Mrs. and I thought we would give The Coup a chance. I honestly had no idea what I was getting in to as I'd never been out for a vegan meal before but wow was I surprised. The food was flavorful and filling, and the drinks were cold and delicious. Small but upscale wine selection, good range of cocktails, and a really solid bartender. Did I mention the food? It was phenomenal. We couldn't stop ordering dishes to try different things, it was incredible. I even took some gyoza home with me, it was that good. We will definitely be back soon, there's still more deliciousness to feast on! I don't recall the name of our server but she was fantastic and very knowledgeable! Please give her our thanks. Best of luck to you as a business, I look forward to many more delicious meals there.

To be honest the first couple times I went to the coup I found some of the food a bit dry. BUT, the food was absolutely outstanding!! They were very accommodating with my 1yr old being there. Overall, really really enjoyed it and will definitely be back.

The menu is tired and suffering - has definitely gone downhill over the past few years. Needs a spring refresh and an overhaul on the wine menu too.

Deanna is the best human in the world, she always knows my order (which is because it hasn't changed in the 10+ years I've been coming 😂) everyone always greets me with such happiness, I love coming here it's been my fav restaurant since I stepped inside.

Sauce on the fried mushroom was overly salty.
Soup of the day was very bland and underwhelming. Overpriced for what it was.

The Coup has been my go to restaurant for the past 15 years. I LOVE the spicy Peanut Satay so much, mostly every single person who works there knows my order better than I do! I love coming to the coup, sharing the coup experience with family and friends over the years has been an amazing thing to offer my loved ones. Thank you for making every single visit, pick up and overall ambience above and beyond.

I have been to the coup a few times now and I think this was the most disappointed I have been- not sure I would return. The food was WAY too salty and the service was not friendly. There are so many other places on 17th with friendlier service and better food!

The waitstaff was a bit absent minded- they didn’t fully clear the table when we were done with the appetizer- they left my date’s plate behind. We had to request its removal. They also didn’t leave the appropriate cutlery for the meal, and we had to ask for an empty drink bottle to be removed from the tiny table. There were a few burnt pieces of tofu in my dish, and the pot de chocolate was good but is served in a cute jar that made it impossible to get a nice ratio of raspberry to chocolate. Should have been a ramekin or something instead. I love the coup but the last couple times I’ve been there I’ve been disappointed in the service.

The whole experience was wonderful, from first walking in to the last chat with our server before heading out!

I was a bit unsure what I wanted as far as a drink and main (because everything sounded amazing!) And the server helped me decide. I loved my vegan ceasar and was very impressed by the flavor. My main was the Thai Coconut broth and it was a very generous portion. The broth was outstanding and I am now a fan of lotus root. Highly recommend The Coup

The food and the service is by far the best. We are never disappointed with our dinners there. With the whole covid pandemic creating more fear in venturing out. The Coup has really stepped up with their cleanliness. We felt very safe there. Thank you coup for a great evening.
