The restaurant was nice. They accommodated us ahead of our reservation time. The food was wonderful and everyone enjoyed it immensely. The only complaint we had was that though we requested bread few times but never got it until we were almost leaving. The same was the case with fruit salad. Apart from these two issues we were quite happy with our overall experience.

It was my son’s 16th birthday. Once the staff knew it was his birthday he was served large pieces of his favourite steak. All of the different cuts of meats were delicious and tender. The servers suggested many different sides to try like the sautéed mushrooms and other vegetable dishes that were my expectations.

In comparison to the downtown location, we didn't find the Vaughan location staff as attentive and friendly. The servers weren't as friendly or engaging, and we had to ask several times for a a few menu items.

All side orders taste were so average.
There wasnt that much variety of meat presented and was so salty and had an after taste.
The server was okai, but took our chef specialties order after 45 mins.
The appetizer table didnt come around us except after we asked for it and that was more than an hour after we were seated.
I love the location in Niagra much better (closed) and this was my 1st time at the Vaughan loction and wasn't what i expected.

It was great; my friend and I loved the food, the environment, and the staff. The staffs were so friendly; they kept on offering us food. And we felt terrible when we had to take a break. I would love to visit again when it's my birthday - I look forward to my free cake. Everything was top-notch. My friend and I had to wait a little longer before we were seated. It was 9 to 10 minutes later compared when our reservation time at 8:30 PM.

Everything was fantastic related to the service and the main courses. My only criticism is the deserts, which were very bland and not well prepared. The meat was the best I've ever had so next time I'll just skip dessert.

Food was quick coming out, and delicious! Service was really great, especially with the carvers. We are huge fans of copacabana, particularly this location. Since Covid, I’m happy to say the food/service/experience have not suffered!

Made a reservation for my fiancee's birthday, we were not seated for over an hour after reservation was nade ( reservation for 7:30, arrived at 7PM waited til 8:30PM.) Ontop of that the business adds a tip automatically so even though I received bad service they still make 36 bucks, so they don't seem to really care what customer service their clients receive, they get paid well both ways.

I've worked in a few restaurants and know the business, and I love the one in Niagara Falls, they have a fair system, they don't have 10-20 people all packed in the front entrance in the middle of a pandemic, and they actually seem to care about the clients.

Therefore, I will wait until Niagara falls reopened to visit this chain for food, it's far to expensive to be having these kind of experiences, and you ruined a really special person's birthday.

They rushed/kicked our group out before my two hours were up, but yet they took our order on drinks and served us with our bill. Now we have drinks that I get I had to drink so fast. So unimpressed. They came twice to remind us to leave the table. they said to drink it at the bar. So unpleasant.

Booking the restaurant for more than 6 is not possible online. You can book for 4 and 2 people but not 6. You have to email or call and wait for someone to respond.

Our 6:30 appointment was on time. Less than 5 minutes from the time we sat, meat was being served. Amazing! Not the restaurants fault but buffet style for sides is no longer offered. Waiters come around with a cart and offer salads, pasta and desserts. Not the end of the world.

What ruined the night for me was having to ask the waiters 6X, the manager 2x and waitress 2x for garlic steak that came around once. They kept serving steak with cheese all night. After more than 30 mins, finally came but no longer hungry.

Also, the tip of 15% was automatically added to your bill ahead of time, and no more dancing ladies which made the night memorable for first time visitors. I came with first time family members.

If you don’t like noise level, don’t come here. You can barely hear the waiters/waitresses describing the meat. One had to pull down their mask so we could hear what she was serving.

I know this is a very negative feedback but when you pay $65/pp, you expect GREAT service. Won’t recommend this place to anyone.

Increased prices, poor experience.
Have taken my family on many occasions and this was the first time back in 2 years.

Very disappointed. The service was very slow (our waitress needs lessons on how to wear a mask - either wear it properly or don't wear it.) We were there for 45 minutes before meat started coming around and after hour and a half we had not seen half the cuts on the list.

Right when we arrived I told our waitress that my 13 year old daughter wasn't eating any meat. She just nodded.
When we got the bill I noticed a full charge for her and when quering was told that there is no longer a salad bar option

$65 for a few cheese balls, Mac n cheese and a ceaser salad!

I will say that the meat was very flavourful when we did get some but it as mentioned was very sparsly distributed.

Overall a disappointing experience

We had a wonderful time celebrating a birthday - food service was great. There was a young man serving us who was commuting from the Niagara location - he was such a wonderful person and server. They are very lucky to have him supporting! He made the experience that much better

Went there for our anniversary and we were actually disappointed. The first 30 minutes was good but then later when we tried to order some side dishes the waitress came and then took our order but never came back. We waited for about 30 minutes and the food never came. The whole experience was like a broken telephone and finally our food came but it was stone cold. The whole restaurant was very dark and very noisy, and the waitresses and waiters did not wear name tags which was very confusing and frustrating. This is definitely not the place for anniversary celebrations. Tips were included in the bill so there's no way you can reflect their service and food. It's definitely not an $80 worth of meal. It would be a nice place for big group gatherings and for people who order lots of drinks because they tend to care more about them.

Copa has really jacked up their prices and the selection is much less compared to pre-covid days now that there is no open buffet setting. There is also no more entertainment on the weekends, so the price jack is definitely uncalled for. The meats however are always on point

I went here for my parent's anniversary, the food was tasty and plentiful but it came in a random order for ex. the salad came to our table towards the end of the meal? Other than that the service was pretty good and the staff was polite and attentive.

The service was terrible, the waiters didn't come with the meat, we needed to call them and ask to bring some.
We were automatically charged by 18% tip which is considering their poor service is exaggerated to say the least

This was for my husband's birthday. Not the best experience for the price we paid. First of all the QR code only works on iPhones not on Androids. Thankfully, my daughter had an iPhone so we could access the menu. Secondly, the serving per food type is so minuscule. Thirdly, since our table was at the corner, the food carts don't come to us as often or unless we remind our server. Fourthly, we ordered for salmon which only came after we had dessert. We were told that when it was made it was given to someone else. Sad to say my experience was not so good. This was my first and would never go back.
