Great service, we came with 2 kids and they were very attentive and even brought hot water to warm up a bottle. Super friendly and fast service, and even better food!

The food was awesome and the service impeccable. For food and service at this level you would think of more upscaled atmosphere, but it is a sports bar I get it. I highly recommend Copa and will come back again and bring my friends!

The restaurant seemed to be very understaffed. We saw our food come out of the kitchen and sit out for about a half hour before the waiter brought it to our table. Good location but poor service.

We had a great anniversary dinner outside under the heater on their patio. We thought their Unlimited Tapas special was fantastic. We didn't even get to try all of the tapas, so we'll need to do it again. We've also ordered their paellas to go and they are delicious. Highly recommend

The food was good and the staff was knowledgeable. The drinks were good but the hibiscus mojito could have been better. But mixing the mojito with the raspberry sangria WOW! Amazing.

Omg one of the best tapas I’ve had! There are so many things to love about COPA menu-sangrias, empanadas, flatbreads, bravas, salmon crudo and many more. We had an unlimited tapas deal with $2 drinks- BOMB!
Cool spot to watch the games or have a family dinner. Very welcoming and fun. Highly recommend this place.

The environment was great, service was top notch. Tapas were fantastic. Everything item we ordered had outstanding flavor. On the texture side, we were a bit underwhelmed by the paella. The rice in the paella was slightly undercooked and had sort of a crunch to it. (Not the crispy good kind either). The sangria was on the thin/watered down side, especially as it was served over ice

Food was ok, nothing great. Service was a lacking - we had asked for new plates because the ones brought to us were dirty and we actually never received them. We also asked for water when placing our initial order and only got them about 5 minutes before we left. The waiter checked on us maybe once during the meal.

They do have some smart COVID accommodations in place including the option to pay for your bill online by scanning a QR code on the check. They also have a decent amount of outdoor seating.

Probably wouldn’t rush to come back again.

The restaurant was fabulous, even in COVID-19 times! The meal was great, though I still feel that $15 for 6 shrimp is a bit of a stretch in Arlington. I’d recommend going for happy hour - the prices are much more in line with what’s affordable.

We went for dinner and it happened to be during their happy hour, which had good prices on flatbreads, appetizers and drinks. Everything was very tasty and good portion sizes. It's a great location for those who eat gluten free.

Copa was SO good! We’re so glad they opened at Ballston Quarter! We both enjoyed flatbreads (smoked salmon and chorizo) and cheese bites as an appetizer. The raspberry sangria was so refreshing. The food is reasonably priced and Copa provides a fun atmosphere which I’m sure we’ll be back at during football season. Definitely check them out if you’re in the Ballston area!

This place was nice in that it was very accommodating to large parties, which is currently tough to do in Ballston. The food was pretty good. I enjoyed my salmon skewer and the collard greens were delicious. Other people weren't as excited by their meals but no one had any serious complaints. The biggest issues were service. It took a long time for our order to be taken and our sever would vanish for extended periods. Someone, who appeared to be the manager did help out and was apologetic and very accommodating. I think this location is fairly new, so growing pains are understandable. I'll be moving to the area so I intend to visit again and give them a second chance in a month or so.
