Your experience at Copacabana begins with a trip to our "Galleria" where you will be tempted by fresh baked breads and dips from our open concept bakery; fresh cheeses cut from the wheel, and expertly hand sliced charcuterie selections. Help yourself to as much crisp salads and colorful starters you want, but leave room: Your experience is just beginning.

Back at your table our Gauchos or Carvers will service you with a feast of various CAB (Certified Angus) grilled meats prepared in a number of ways. Simply tell your carver how you prefer your meat, (most come medium rare) and leave the rest to us!

There is only one small task for you...As your Gaucho is Cutting at your table, use your provided tongs to simply grasp the top slab of meat and assist as he thinly slices a perfect cut of meat onto your plate, enjoy…and repeat as many times as you like!

We went to celebrate our 42 wedding anniversary and had a great night, good food a nice bottle of wine and good service. The waitress did say they would do something for our anniversary but they didn’t. This was our third time there and as usual we enjoyed our night.

I went to Copacabana for my birthday and it was definitely worth it!! It was my first time going to a Brazilian steakhouse, and it was such a cool experience. The food was so delicious and there was a great selection. I definitely recommend!

Was so looking forward to this meal. The steaks had an off taste, like bad. 5 people totaled 358,no alcohol. On the good side, the chicken was great. Overall, we won't be back.

Some meat was caming few times, where other was just once. Do not know if we had a chance to try all steaks. There could be more salads. But the pickles were amazing. Great service, impressive of all attention from service and the owner/manager.

Very nice place for a birthday. I do wish there was some way to request a certain level of cooking (such as those who prefer well done vs medium as some were cooked) but I’m assuming that is the norm. Other than that, amazing!!!!

Nothing like Fogo de Chao. Quality is lacking tremendously. Sides offered are not very good and the quality of the meats is significantly less than Fogo. The service was very slow and the music was good but incredibly loud. We felt like we were at the club.

Meat delivery was very slow. Buffet is very small for the money. I would rather have drinks an a great steak at the keg. If this place charged $30.00 a person it would be more reasonable. I still wouldn't return.

We brought our family who was visiting from Florida. The food was outstanding as usual!! Loved every type of hot and freshly grilled meat, and the grilled pineapple with cinnamon is to die for! The young men coming to the tables with their skewers full of meat were super friendly, knowledgeable about what they are offering, and eager to please. They, along with the rest of the wait staff were very attentive, often asking if there was a favourite item they could go and get for us. I also really appreciate when a restaurant manager comes around to visit his guests to ensure they are enjoying themselves. It's a nice touch.
I think the outside of the restaurant could use a freshened appearance, and the decor inside could be more colourful - as fitting for a Brazilian feeling, but the food and service are top notch!!!

Food was average, service was absolutely AWFUL. The service was so bad, that we had to complain to the manager. By the time he finally did something about the HORRIBLE service, it was too late. So, he took $5 per person off our bill ($25 in total) and then proceeded to ad a $42 tip...what the hell? The service was HORRIBLE, and the food was average. They didn't deserve a tip!!! What incentive is there for good food, and good service when you steal tips from customers?

Do yourself a favor, and go to McDonald's. The food is the same quality, but the service is MUCH BETTER. And McDonald's doesn't impose mandatory tips for HORRIBLE service.

Don't get me wrong I love Copa cobana it's very delicious just this time was different. It could've been the location of where I was seated but I found myself constantly being the last table being served on a fresh rotation. As well as seeing more often things that we didn't want keep on coming out. Like top sirloin came out atleast 5 times as well seeing chicken come out like 2 or 3 times. But my favourite thing I usually love to get which is the parmesan filet mignon only came out twice. The second time I had to ask for it because I found myself sitting there for like 15 minutes waiting for it to come around. If I am paying a premium price I expect premium service as well. Which I didn't find. Probably my worst experience at a Copa cabana I've ever had. Sucks too cuz I brought my parents there for their first time and it was my dad's birthday and they didn't get a very good impression. At this location seemed like they were more into taking my money rather than serving me.

We went at 730pm. It was not busy but I think we were ahead of the tourist season. Service was great. Selection was great. Ambiance was good but felt a bit worn for the beginning of the season.

We were seated near the back just seemed as if we didn’t really get all the food as the carvers would be stopped by others so when came to our table very little left till they came back. Which wouldn’t always be with the same meat you were expecting to get. Still good though just wouldn’t recommend sitting at an end table.

Service is excellent and staffers are courteous. Sitting arrangement is comfortable and noise level is low. Salad is delicious. Even though choice of salad is limited, it meets our needs. The only drawback is the over cooked meat. It is chewy, dry and sometimes too salty. This is especially true for meat marinated with cheese which in itself is already salty. The extra layer of cheese makes the meat losing its natural taste. Perhaps this is selling point of the restaurant. We had been in Tokyo's Barbacao Brazilian BBQ restaurant before a number of times. Besides offering beef from different countries, they lightly brown their meat every time from the kitchen. This maintains the tenderness and natural juicy meat taste which we like. We hope the restaurant will our comments helpful. Thank you for giving us an opportunity to express our opinion.
