Enjoyed our dinner at Copita. One of the better restaurants we have found in that area. Like many places right now, they are suffering due to staff shortages. Hang in there!

Excellent service, beautiful ambience. Small cozy with nice wine selection.

Food good but not great--not particularly interesting or creative flavors for either the vegetarian dish or the steak option. Expect better food for the price. Appetizers seemed particularly overpriced.

A cozy, little Northeast Harbor, ME eatery that has a similar vibe to its sister restaurant, Havana in Bar Harbor. A smaller menu allows the chef to focus on the food, which is excellent. Very nice presentation of fresh, local product. Friendly service made the experience one worth re-visiting Copita.

Great quaint restaurant. We realized late when talking to our waiter, Patrick, that it was the same owners as Havana which was excellent as well. Very good menu. Highly recommend this great spot.

Appetizers were delicious: my clams especially were exceptional. Fish haddock entree was amazing as well. Pasta was a bit large and dense: half the serving with some veggies or whatever to lighten it up might have been nice… but for real, that chocolate olive oil cake is AMAZING. We’ll definitely go back k if we can get a reservation!

We had an excellent meal at Copita. The location is definitely unassuming and low key. However, the food was excellent and delivered served in an unpretentious way. We couldn’t have been more pleased.

We are well traveled and frequent high end diners. This was one of the best meals I can remember in recent history, we had the "their version of carbonara" pasta and the halibut. So well prepared, ingredients all worked well together with surprising twists. Fresh, warm (served appropriate timing) and just delicious. We even did dessert, which was a dense but moist chocolate cake with a touch of sea salt and caramel with a sauce with macadamia nuts. Divine.

I was expecting to be wowed from the menu, but we were a little disappointed. The clams were served with grilled pita bread, which really didn’t pair well. We were expecting rustic grilled bread to dip into the broth. The melon appetizer also fell short with what felt like a hunk of salami wedged between the melon and cheese (thinner slices would have drastically improved it). We honestly skipped dinner.good service though.

We enjoy restaurants for not only their flavorful, creative cuisine but also for an energetic ambiance. Unfortunately we did not get to experience the ambiance of Copita for we were seated in the back of the restaurant which was partitioned off from the rest of the restaurant…just us, a unoccupied 6 top , and the bathroom. It was early, 6pm, our reservations were made months ago, and we asked if we could have a table at the front as there were only 3 - 4 tables seated. All the other tables were reserved we were told and arriving soon. We had to wonder if our “open table” status vs local status relegated us to the back room. Maybe an off night…food disappointed. Quite a contrast to the wonderful dishes and delightful service of our previous nights in Bar Harbor.

Terrific food - really a treat with few restaurants of this quality on Mount Desert Island. The service is a little shaky, completely understandable considering the lack of staff and their relative inexperience. I'll always return whenever I'm in town.

We had a nice evening out at Copita...We ate too much lobster at lunch so stayed with mostly vegetarian offerings - I am not sure that those are its' forte - as we had heard that their halibut and lamb chops were very good - but it was certainly an enjoyable evening out. Service was lovely and accommodating.
