The restaurant wasn’t busy. They switch the server in the beginning. Weird at first, but Dan took over and when the main course came. They double check with us. Our lamb loin was med rare and our steak was med. It should be the other way around. They offer to fix it but we said no. Not a big deal! They offer us the complimentary desserts. The snowball was excellent. My fiancé and I have a good time and the whole place pretty much to ourselves. Thank you for making our night! Too much we miss chef Claudio!

I went to Copetin for lunch on a Friday. There were only two other tables than ours. The design is funky and fresh - music too loud and not great for conversation. Service was good and my meal was great! Cannot say the others in the group liked the food as much.
I think this would be a great dinner spot but no time or interest in the lunch crowd - or that is how it felt.

Food was awesome.
Server never brought our bottled water and waited 25 minutes to take a drink order then rushed us.
While exposing the entree servers finger pointing way to close to the food. Not experienced server.

It was a great experience. The absolute best steak I have ever had. I hope to go back again. Although it is pricey enough that I would reserve it for special occasions.

We could not have asked for a better fine dining experience to celebrate a huge milestone in our family. The food was beyond expectation. Each dish was composed well, the ingredients were fresh and the amount on the plate was substantial. To be more specific, the grilled calamari was the most tender calamari we had, and we have had a lot of calamari in the past. The Roasted Chicken on Wlid Rice was quintessential Canadian in its flavors and ingredients. The Grilled Salmon and Artichoke was seasoned to perfection and the Ricotta Gnudi was a perfect pasta pillow of yummy goodness. Of course, we finished off our meal with three decadent desserts that remain etched in our olfactory senses. Aside from the food, the service was relaxed and friendly. The servers were respectful of our time and did not rush us out once our meals were finished. A definite highlight of the night was meeting our favorite celebrity chef Claudio Aprile. My nephew, who chose to celebrate his elementary school graduation at Copetin was thrilled to meet his cooking idle. Mr. Aprile was a perfect gentleman, as he indulged us with a few minutes of his time.

One of the best spots to enjoy some healthy, fresh and delicious food. If you haven't added it to your must-try restaurant bucket list, then I suggest you do so right away. The Dulce de Leche has stolen my heart and my taste buds and the lunch menu offers many different choices. Hope to be back to try to lounge and dinner menus, not to mention a cocktail or two! Applause to Claudio Aprile and his team for the great food and service! Cheers Copetin!

So we didn't realize it was summerlicious and at first we were disappointed because usually it means you don't get the best from the restaurant. But we were pleasently surprised. Food was great and service was amazing. Can't wait to go back for the regular menu.

Business takes me to Toronto a few times a year and each time I try to take in a new restaurant. Being an avid fan of Masterchef Canada I decided to try Chef Claudio’s Copetin. I was a bit star struck when he was actually at the restaurant working! Everyone, including Chef Claudio was incredibly friendly and interactive. If I lived in Toronto I think this would be my go-to place for Friday’s after work.
The food was fabulous and I had the most tender calamari ever. For the main I chose Salmon and for the record I am extremely fussy about the cook and often send fish back because so many chefs send it out overdone. The cook on my salmon was perfect! I highly recommend Copetin.
I did have to send a glass of wine back as it was corked. Not a big deal but don’t bartenders check?
Overall, a very positive experience!

We are very happy we tried Copetin for the first time. The appetizers and mains were amazingly delicious with complex and creative layers of flavours. The portion sizes were not too small or large, leaving us feeling very satisfied yet wanting some more. We will be back hopefully with friends! Thank you!

I was told they did not have my booking but found out at the end they did. I knew they did as Open Table did remind me.
After finishing dinner I overheard a couple ordering one of my favourites dishes which wasn’t offered on the menu I was given.
On the way out I asked the hostess why I wasn’t given that menu. She said I should have asked for it. I said I hadn’t been there before so how would I know to ask?! Her response was a blank face.
For a $211 plus 20% tip meal for 2 people I would expect better trained hostesses.

I received a call 2 hrs prior to our 7:15 reso stating that their was a scheduling error and the dinner menu would not be available but we could still enjoy the tapas plates. No dinner menu at a restaurant!

When they brought the Tapas menu they were sold out of three dishes leaving only 6 to choose from, two being edamame and oysters. We decided not to eat there and were told that someone would reach out the next day but of course nothing.

It was our one year anniversary and I made the reso 3 weeks in advance , terrible customer service and don’t recommmend.

This used to be Origin. Origin was much better.
The Beef tartare was dry and overly salty.
The duck tacos are still great. You have to know to ask for them as they're not on the menu.
The place is a little loud.
The bartender is friendly and excellent.

Food was pretty good - not amazing, but I enjoyed it. Menu had very few options, so definitely a very bad place if you have any kind of dietary restrictions. Honestly, I just thought it was way too expensive for what it was. It wasn't spectacular. Service was very good - no complaints there.

I assume since we were the only table in the restaurant on the night of the ice storm, chef was off! The scallops were almost unbearable salty, the steak tartar was sent back as it was essentially awful. The octopus was good. The wine pricing is insane which left us feeling unsatisfied. I had high hopes and since we were the only table, we figured it would be amazing. Service was great. The free oysters were appreciated. Than it went down hill. Maybe they should have just closed up shop for the night if all the chefs are off and the second level staff cooking our overpriced food. Too bad!

First visit to the old Origin space, it's just as pretty. Service and food was excellent, try the duck taco and the crab curry. Ambience lacking slightly, very quiet on the lounge side of the restaurant for a Saturday night however the dining area seemed a bit livelier.

Food was outstanding. The atmosphere is great however the noise level makes it difficult for conversation... One side has bad acoustics with open kitchen and the other side has music playing too loud... If this was fixed, then it would definitely be a top restaurant to take guests, clients, visitors etc.

The restaurant was fairly empty for a Thursday night - which is never a good sign. Very limited menu and super overpriced for the quality. We had the octopus appetizer - while very flavourful, the octopus was mushy and tasted over frozen. The seabream was delicious, but not worth the $. Our server was very good, but overall the staff was a bit green. Would go back if they dropped their prices by minimum $10.

Group of friends were getting together before the new year. We have the tartare, the gnudi, and the duck. We had a couple pollenators as well. All very well done and delicious. Duck in particular stood out to us as well done. This place has a great ambience to it, and the cocktails were great.
