CANADA’S FIRST URBAN RODIZIO.

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 arrived and were first seated in a busy and noisy corner of the restaurant. Almost felt like we were on top of the table next to us... I advised the waitress that it was our anniversary and I had requested a more private table when I made the reservation. She didn’t seem too willing to figure something else out but after a little pushing she found us another table that was more private.
Food was spectacular and delicious.... service was outstanding and the carvers came out frequently. Will visit again!!

Okay experience. Quite expensive for the service given. Sat there for nearly 2 hours and my boyfriend was only offered 2 different kinds of steak. Considering our bill was nearly $200 we expected much more than that. Servers would literally walk past us without offering the meat. The food that was offered was delicious. The atmosphere was nice and the sides were very good as well. I believe there should be some sort of price reduction if no show. Paid full price and got no show.

Nice place, salad/sides bar is good. I love the spicy chimichurri.
If you like the meat well done, it will take longer but they will do it.

This wasn't our first visit to this location but I believe it is going to be the last. The food was still very good but the service that we received didn't justify the price. Our party of 2 were seated by the window on the 2nd floor in a rather cold evening. I don't believe the heater was turned on for very long when we arrived. We both had to wear our winter jacket for the duration of our stay. We had told our server that the occasion for the visit was my boyfriend's birthday and she had assured that he would get a free dessert. After taking our drink orders, the server only came to our table once asking us if we wanted clean plates when we were still working on the food on the old ones. By the time we wanted to leave and to pay our bills, the server didn't come with the credit card machine, and it took her another 5-10 minutes to bring the machine by the way of another server. Oh, and did I say that the server TOTALLY forgot about my boyfriend's birthday dessert? If it wasn't for the more attentive staff who brought us the steaks, I was tempted to leave no tips.
The music was also very loud on the 2nd floor. We couldn't have a good conversation when we were having our food.
I read some of the reviews here and it seems that I wasn't the first person who experience this problem. I hope that the management could look at all those small details. After all, it's supposed to be a high-end restaurant.

Went on a Friday at 5pm. Meat was all incredibly salty or cheesey. Waitress didn’t come around often and took almost 20min to pay even after getting the bill. Thought thered be live music but it was club themed over speaker. For $57 a person I cant be disappointed enough at finding communal bathrooms in the basement. I think this restaurant is $13-20/person overpriced.

We had reservations for 6:00 and were a half hour late due to traffic, but were seated no problem. We had a terrific meal with excellent service and made it to the theatre on time. Our servers were friendly and attentive, even with my regular “med/well” requests. Great spot, we’ll dine there again!

The waiters were very accommodating. We had requested to switch seats as we were placed beside a very rowdy large group of people. The space between the tables wasn't big enough and I felt like I was being pushed off of the bench. They reseated us immediately and I'm very grateful for their service. However, the meat servers kept missing our tables, yes both of them. We had to wait a couple of times for the servers to ask if we wanted some the their delicious food. It even took the wait staff to request for the meat servers to bring food to our table. Out of the whole experience, the entertainment was the best part. The dancers were amazing and the ribbon dancer was super talented. We couldn't keep our eyes off. Overall, we had an amazing time. I would definitely come back.

We came here for a corporate dinner. Which was explained when booking the reservation.
After waiting 30 minutes to be seated we were seated upstairs when we explicitly stated we wanted the main floor. I've dined here multiple times and as the food and ambiance is still remarkable the service has gone downhill. The best service was from the meat carvers.

When you book 3 weeks in advance and spend over $1300 on dinner we did expect better service from our server (rude and inattentive) and the hostesses (25 minutes for a table is ridiculous).

The food was great! The service was, for the most part, great too. Our server was a little rude in a way, almost catty; with exception of her attitude (which wasn't totally awful - maybe she was just having a bad night) she was good. We didn't wait too long for anything, even though the restaurant was very busy. I did book through open table and left a note for a surprise birthday dessert for my boyfriend, which we never got. We were stuffed anyway, so it ultimately didn't matter - but it would have been good if they'd acknowledged it.

The vuffet iteams where very tastey and offered a fine selection. I did have a poor seat location (pinned in corner) and serves seemed to me to be avoiding my area. In the end we got lots of meat served to me, but i think i missed out on some of the varities that where offered. I will be back for more.

The hostess at the Reception looked miserable. She was not very helpful and did not really acknowledge any customer standing in front of her. She did not even greet us on arrival.

Just gave off a bad vibe before we even got to our table. Other than than everything was great, restaurant is fantastic

The large variety of freshly roasted meats and of course the pineapple are the stars of the show.

Table service from our server was average and we waited a while for water refills but the meat servers that came around constantly were top notch so averages out at a 4.

Went on a Friday night around 9:30 reservation, still had to wait at the bar for 15mins before getting our seats. Tables hostess was kind but had a lot of tables to deal with. Food was great but guys with meat cuts would barely come around. After a certain time they automatically decide you don’t need any more meat doesn’t matter what colour you leave your place holder. Over all I’ve been to other locations service is much better there, I would only recommend going here for the atmosphere.

I have been to Copacobana before, but this was probably my least-favourite visit. We were a group of 8 and were ended up seated on the top floor. This was okay, but it unfortunately meant that the food got to us rather slow and infrequent. I know that the servers usually come in waves, but in this instance there must have been at least one occasion where we waited about 10 minutes in-between an offering. Again, not the end of the world, but it's tough when you've got a group of 8 hungry males that may or may not have starved themselves during the day leading up to this dinner.

I'd still recommend it for a once-a-year outing though.

We were seated in a terrible point upstairs where we were interrupted and bumped and had meat juice fall on us and in our drinks. Had to move around everyone to get to the buffet. Hardly any meat servers available to us and the waitress was terrible. I will never come back. I’m only upset we wasted our anniversary there.
