    The restaurant is nice and the ambience is good. But service was mediocre. You also don’t get your money’s worth. My partner and I spent $300 and hardly got meat brought to our table. Perhaps a total of 6 times in a span of 2 hours. Definitely overpriced and will not be returning.

    I love the ambience and the food. The variety of steaks is spectacular. I do believe it’s a little pricey for the variety but the overall experience definitely makes up for it. But the music tends to get too loud when the DJ is around, almost making you scream to talk to fellow friends at the table.

    I’ve been to the Toronto and Niagara locations and have had a great experience. They have a very nice atmosphere and I felt that the price was worth it. Very disappointed when I walked in and saw the Vaughan location. Very open with tables side by side almost bumping elbows with the patrons next to you. The music was too loud to even hear our waitress most of the time. Got a beer and didn’t specify draft beer so I received a bottle of beer which was lukewarm. Also had a glass of wine that tasted as if it had gone bad. I will say the food that we had was good. Regretted the choice of going there almost immediately. I could see it being a good place for a very large group to go, but if you’re looking to have any privacy while dining you should look elsewhere.

    Before Covid would go here multiple times a month, however, since Covid have been back 3 times. Last night will be my last time. Really no longer worth the money and not having the buffet tables open makes it very unappealing.

    I've been to Copacabana in Niagara Falls and really enjoyed it. This location is not remotely the same. The ambiance was terrible, the service was non-existent (about 1/3 of the side dish orders, drinks, and desserts never came), and a lot of the food was just ok. It felt like a complete waste of money.

    $75/ person on fridays ($100/ person if we include tax and a tip they give themselves). We had to ask our server for sides about 3 times. She wouldn’t write anything down and would come back for clarification every few minutes. The server/machines were down so they were unable to give us a receipt and everything was just chaos. The music is so loud, you can’t hold a conversation with your date. If I wanted to go to the club, that’s where I would’ve went. It’s not worth the money or time. I would not recommend going here. Copa is a thing of the past.

    I have been to Copa over 30 times, at least 15 times at this location. As per my last visit: Server wasn't knowledgeable, couldn't understand her well, and just wasn't the best overall. Food quality has slightly gone down, but overall still pretty solid. Music was EXTREMELY loud, like we couldn't have a conversation, but that maybe due to it being on a friday. Overall value has gone down, but i'd probably still visit once a year.

    The Vaughan location for Copa Cabana is in my opinion sub par compared to my previous experience at the Niagara Falls location. No live entertainment, the layout of the restaurant is long and narrow no levels or anything, the is no ambiance. The food is excellent but service is slow at times small tables tend to get forgotten. The mix of items was nonexistent as well compared to the Niagara location. The Niagara location used to have the Brazilian dancers a self serve salad bar and just a better experience for the cost per plate. I did enjoy the food in Vaughan but I would have to say I really wouldn’t want to attend that location again.

    Came here twice. Once before Covid and once after Covid (yesterday). Waitress forgot so many things, servers took way too long to come around. So expensive for the amount of time I had to wait with nothing on my plate. Bathrooms not kept clean. Food is not worth the price but the workers are polite. I won’t be going there ever again, just not worth the price for such little service and food.

    I have gone a few times to other locations throughout the years, including this location. This last experience, I limited sides and they didn’t have much sides other then salad and potatoes. The meat was okay the other locations were way better. The servers took long. The downtown location is better. For 75 bucks a person plus automatic tip for 4 people… I expected way better from the restaurant. I personally wouldn’t try this again for that price…

    We arrived 15 min before our reservation but got seated 45 minutes later. The waitress spilled water while pouring it but never came back to clean it off the table. Our waitress was rude and we had to keep stopping her when she passed to get drinks or more food. The food was great but service sucked. They automatically add the gratuity which I don't like. I tip based on quality of food and service. I would definitely not have tip as generous as the automatic tip was in this case as it was way above what she deserved. The music was so loud we could not talk at our table nor could we hear the wait staff when they came to the table.

    We have dined at Copa many times before the pandemic and I am disappointed in how things have changed. Showed heavily booked for reservations online and we changed our plans to accommodate but the restaurant was empty inside when we arrived. We left out guest to be able to get a reservation, it was my son’s birthday. Server shaved meats into my drink twice. One server got oil from the meat all over my leg which has subsequently ruined the clothing item. We are not picky people and own a small business so we understand the strain the last couple of years has put on everyone. But it was an unpleasant experience and we likely won’t be going back again. The cost of course has increased a decent amount as well. And it wasn’t at all worth the service.

    ! Drove 4 hours with my daughter . Service was very poor ! Didn’t come around to fill drinks ! At first the food came fast then waited over 15 min for more meat to come to our table ! Waitress asked what we wanted and we told her but no meat came to our table . Then the manager came to our table and asked and we got what we wanted right away !

    As usual, Copacabana didn’t disappoint! From the moment we sat down, food was flowing. The prime rib with cheddar and the Parmesan crusted filet were our meat favourites. The side dishes were also fantastic, with a special shout-out on the corn bread and smashed potatoes. Service was outstanding. This is such a great place to make an event out of the meal, much more than a typical restaurant. By far and away our favourite special night out spot.

    We waited almost 20 minutes for a waiter to take out drink order and explain the changes with ordering food that used to be buffet style. Then we waited another 15 minutes for a waiter to provide our bill. We had to ask another waiter to find her. The food was excellent but service was terrible. I would expect paying $200plus for a meal the service would be better. Disappointed because we have waited over 2 years to come back. We would go to a competitor next time like rodeo or toro. We traveled from Pickering to visit your location. Sorry for the negative feed back but I hope u can make it better.

    Much more expensive than expected, and I don't believe the food quality was worth the money! The small performance was nice, but that's about it. The bathroom was not acceptable at all, as soon as I walked in, I walked right out! Toilet paper, water, and everything in between was on the ground, and I think such an expensive restaurant should at least try to keep their bathroom clean and tidy. It reminded me of a community centre's bathroom!

    This was my first time at Copa. The food was amazing and reminded me of being in Costa Rica! Just the tables are way too small to put the sides. I didn't have enough space so it felt a bit tight. Waitress was very attentive. The servers were passing us completely for maybe 10 minutes. But we explained to the waitress and they began serving us and were more attentive so we were happy for that and appreciated it! It was a bit noisy, my husband and I couldn't really make conversation because we couldn't hear each other well. And we were really close to other tables. Overall it was a good experience!

    The food was very good but it felt that the servers came to us less often. After a certain amount of time. I've been to the Niagara location and I missed having the double sided indicators to let the servers know if you are ready for more food or not. I was a little surprised to see an automatic gratuity of 18% added to my bill.
