Great food and great service! They kept coming around with enough food and if you need anything just ask the servers.

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.

The food and service were excellent. Everyone was really nice and was attentive throughout the dinner making sure we were taken care of. There isn’t a salad bar or any bar at this particular location compared to previous Brazilian steakhouses I visited, everything was brought to you. The idea was nice but we waited quite some time for some of the table side dishes to make it to us. Highly recommended if you are a meat eater and go there primarily for that. Overall still a great experience and the price is very reasonable with great service.

It is definitely not worth the price at all. The service was extremely slow for the amount of food you end up getting. A couple slices of steak every 10 minutes or so is not a fun experience. There were times where the servers(?) would constantly ignore our table, but would tend to the other tables around us. The whole restaurant experience was very gimmicky.

Food was delicious for the most part, there was a few large tables that kept taking all of the servers attention and therefore the skewers of meats. We didn’t get to big of a variety and went long periods of time without seeing anything at all. It was much better in Niagara Falls where we used to go before covid, I wouldn’t complain about the $200 bill then but now it didn’t seem as worth it.

Even though we made reservations for which we were requested to provide a credit card incase of cancelation, waited over 20 min , finally complained about it and were placed right across the bar . They kept on serculating the same 5 meats. I have asked for shrimp 4 times and they have finally brought them at the same time as my bill. Overall way too busy and not worth the money.

Had a great time. Food was good, fresh, and came out fairly quickly but not so much at a time that it was overwhelming. I tried the braised beef cassava purée for the first time off chef specialties and it was realllyy good! The smashed potatoes are so so good also. All the meats were cooked to perfection and very tasty. Of course by the end I was so full but definitely already ready to go back and enjoy it again really soon!

Went to celebrate my wife’s birthday.

We haven’t been here since covid started, lots has changed including menu items.

At this location you can no longer order fried bananas.
The chimichurri steak is no longer made. Only option is to ask for a bowel of the sauce… not the same.
Tip is included…

Now I always tip my server, the amount depends on the service. I can tell you that the service was not good.

We went through the whole meal without our server coming to check up on us. Had an empty cup for the majority of the time.

I just felt like we were forgotten about. Yet I was still forced to pay as if it was the best service in town.

I hope that money goes to the guys bringing the meat to the table/ or the other ppl bringing salad and dessert because they were great.

When our server did show up, whatever I asked for she would bring. She did bring a free dessert for my wife’s birthday, although she didn’t give us a spoon to eat it. So.. it just the little things that they could improve on.

I don’t think I’ll be coming back to this location anymore. These changes I assume were mostly caused by covid which is understandable but just not for me.

Ps I really miss that chimichurri steak.

It’s a good restaurant I’ve been there a few times and I’ve noticed that they have removed some of the best meats of their menu. Also the price is now ridiculous and 65 per person. We were a family of 4 your telling me it’s now going to cost us 400 to eat out here. Two adults and our two children. The price use to be around 30-50 person. I will not be coming back again although I like the food the price is atrocious.

Food was delicious. Had a great time. I understand that operations have changed due to covid but when your meal has coming to an end and no one has come around to offer sides.. the server should make it happen. Shout out to the manager that got us our sides.

The shows make the difference if I am paying 170 for 2 people. They never mentioned there are no more shows that were disappointing. We went there just because of the shows. And I have 1 question about the restaurant? Why still open buffet is closed? If it is a virus, why don’t you open the buffet and assign responsible people to serve salads and pasta and other items? Not the meats but all other sides dishes serving was too slow.

Food was amazing. Service was good. Just wish more things came around more than they did. For example, pineapple only came around once to our table, as well as the sides. Overall, it was a great experience the food alone is worth a trip back.

The flavors of the meat served was very good. However, it was arriving rather quickly, not giving us time to even taste what we just received before the next server arrived. Later on, the servings were better spaced but by then, we were filled!

Also, we had a wait more than 10 minutes to get coffee and desert, after asking
