"Had expectations of a wonderful dinner given all the "buzz" but our experience fell short from the moment we walked in. Hostess seated us and didn't offer to take our coats, which normally wouldn't be a problem but dining room space is cramped and not enough room to comfortably move between tables. We ordered the house made Italian sausage (good but overcooked; accompanying lentils were actually the highlight), and our entrees were off the mark as well. The veal porterhouse arrived on what appeared to be some sort of cabbage sauce (note: server could have suggested an accompanying side dish or two) and the scallops were closer to charred than pan-seared and arrived on a bed of risotto with fennel sauce and cilantro... an "interesting" combination that could benefit from a more simple preparation. The service lacked timing and polish (would help to be more familiar with menu); a notable exception was the busboy who was efficient and pleasant. The evening ended with retrieving our car from the valet ($6)...he told us he only had $5 change for a $20 bill. Sorry to say...we wanted to like it but probably won't return."

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.

"Enjoyed our first visit to Coup D'Etat for dinner with friends! Excellent cocktails (loved "Fight for Your Right") and the First course selections were amazing! Recommend the Bone Marrow for a unique taste as well as the Beets and Beef Tartare. The Second courses were equally impressive; steaming mussels and Brussels sprouts with pork belly! For entrees, we ordered two each Scallops and Salmon; both were delicious but the flavor of the Scallops made it a winner! Unfortunately had to run to a show so didn't get to enjoy dessert, but we'll definitely be back! Great space, comfortable ambience, friendly service and a terrific bar area as well - enjoy!"
