I've only been here a few times, but it never fails on service, quality, taste or value. The food is fresh and delicious. The cocktails are so innovative and although a bit pricey are quite hard to resist trying. The staff is very friendly and helpful. Even my paleo meatarian husband loves it!

The vegetarian food was excellent, great choices and options. Staff were very friendly and felt it was good value for money - The only issue is they do not have high chairs for kids

Wow, this was not even on the radar until a colleague took me. I have to say, WELL DONE! I'm shocked as how well the food is done here. Presentation is amazing, ambiance is decent and service is always top tier hipster. Keep it up.

We heard how popular The Coup is because of its menu, but we did not realize that the steady stream of food aficionados would last all afternoon! Amazing frittata!

The Coup's sweet potato fries with the aioli are outstanding. I miss the dragon bowl with the peanut dressing. It was my favourite.

I come here with my boyfriend all the time as we both really enjoy some of the options they have here for appetizers and drinks that you won't find anywhere else. Such a great energy in this restaurant!

This isn't your typical vegetarian fare. Lots of choices in both appetizers and entrees. We went on a Thursday night at around 815 pm and had to wait about 20 minutes. Very busy restaurant but well worth it.

We definitely felt like "ethical vegetarians" ordering off of this menu! I ordered the Magic Dragon Bowl which is a create your own meal dish. I ordered the stir fry tofu and the organic wild rice topped with a tahini miso sauce. The ratio of tahini to miso was perfect. My husband ordered the Burger made of roasted garlic, cashew... More

My family has multiple dietary restrictions and this restaurant works well for everyone! Great for vegans, vegetarians, gluten free and dairy free individuals. I have always been impressed, we go at least once a month.
