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!

This location was able to accommodate a late change request on my reservation that allowed my group to visit the restaurant on very short notice during a busy long weekend. My party was provided exceptional service throughout the evening. Our servers were prompt and polite, and the overall atmosphere was charming. Excellent for a first visit, and hopefully not my last.

It was a terrible experience! The concept of copacabana was the waiter will bring you all the meat you can eat!

I waved down a server but he told me he had to serve another table first when he was right in front of me! That left a sour taste in my mouth. The manager came by and asked how was everything and I told him what happened and he just nonchalantly said “you can get shrimp from another server”. There was no apology, like it happens every time! Then when we were about done, they rushed our bill and came by multiple times, asking are we done. After we paid the bill and was enjoying some water, the waitress came by “the next table is waiting downstairs” to further rush us.

The salad bar was nice and the potato fries were amazing!

I don’t know if we will be back. It’s our fourth time here this year and this experience ruined it for us.

How incredibly disappointing!!
The place is nice, don't get me wrong, but to say that service was lacking is an understatement: they have no menus of any form and no explanation is provided - which, for guests from another country (in this case, France, and we are supposed to be bilingual) makes the experience frustrating and stressful. They were supposed to have upwards of 14 items on rotation from the grill, but we never saw more than 9 of them despite asking several times. It seemed that the place was trying to get rid of their lamb's leg and chimichurri meat because it kept coming and coming and coming regardless of us asking them to bring something different. But the killer of it all was the imposed 25% MANDATORY gratuity because we were a table of 6 adults. I don't even understand how that can be justified, especially since the 2 adults in the middle were NEVER DIRECTLY SERVED and had to be passed food BY US over our plates.
We will never go there again, it was a total ripoff.

I decided to choose Copa to go to for my 25th birthday, but had a really bad time. First of all my reservation was for 10:30, I was hoping to catch a glimpse of the live show as it starts at 10:15. However I came 15 minutes early to my reservation but had to wait until 11pm to be seated. So we completely missed the whole show and did not get to experience the live dancing for my birthday. Also we had to keep requesting meat to come to our table as because our reservation was a late one they informed us that only what we want they would put on the grill for us. For paying such an expensive price they did not even have shrimp available. Let's face it we go to expensive restaurants to try to things we don't normally get and I don't think it's fair certain things were not available to us. As I turned 25 at midnight I was verbally attacked by a server. We had requested the fillet mignon to come to our table, so when the servor brought more he had asked us if we were going to waste the previous fillet mignon that had also just arrived. He even said he hated people who waste food and even said he refused to give us. He didn't even ask us how long we were waiting or didn't ask us if we requested. So on midnight I was attacked and had to pretty much beg for the meat that was supposed to be included as part of the buffet. So there I was getting attacked literally on my birthday and having to give an explanation for meat I requested. Which we ate by the way, and did not waste anything. We spoke to the manager and he basically said there was nothing at that point he could do. He sent shots to my table thinking that it could compensate for me being attacked and humiliated. I felt I deserved an apology especially from the server. No one deserves to be treated like that on their birthday. This was a big milestone for me and literally on midnight the server was attacking me and making me feel embarrassed.

1) The buffet left us both unsatisfied as it didn’t have much food we liked. We do enjoy a variety of food from different cultures but this buffet didn’t have much we liked and we were very limited with what we did like. A steakhouse is. It a place to fill up on cheese, bread, rice,l and grapes.
2) The meat appeared to be raw when served to us. We did take the pieces when offered but after about 4 helpings, we stopped as the meat didn’t look appetizing nor did it taste good. We were afraid to eat the meat as we were heading to a concert and didn’t want to get ill.
3) We has our reservations for 500 but due to traffic, we were late. The ladies at the front were very understandable and we were at our table by 530. However, we had gotten our little food from the buffet, finished it and not once were we approached by the gentleman serving the meat. They were around, we saw them but they didn’t come to us till about 20-30mins after we sat down.
4) We understand the price for this restaurant but we felt what we experienced and what was available to us was not acceptable. We only had 1 draft beer and our 2 buffet meals and our meal was $150.00. We had to get streak meat before the show in order to not go hungry

Great service, very attentive and got things done whenever she sensed we wanted or needed something. I don’t expect this of servers, but it’s nice when they went above and beyond. Food was absolutely delicious and loved the service style.

Only downfall was noise level, but the loud music and energetic guests sort of add to the experience in a way. Great night, even for just a couple celebrating a birthday as we were.

I honestly don’t think I can ever do steak any other way! The concept of being able to try a multitude of different meats in one sitting is crazy and I can’t believe I didn’t know it existed. Those flavours tho!

My husband and I came here for his birthday dinner, having once been to a Brazilian barbecue restaurant in Saskatoon, so we did have a basis of comparison. Overall, we were disappointed. He is a big meat-eater, and there was lots of meat, but we found it much too salty. In our previous experience, there was more variety of flavours (eg. chimichurri, jerk, etc.), so despite the fact that we were more than sated, we were rather underwhelmed. Everything else was fine - ambience, service, salad bar, etc., but if the main event is not to one's liking, it leaves one feeling disappointed.

Not our first time at Copacabana but our first time at this location. A bit of a pain to walk downstairs to the buffet but totally worth it to watch the aerial performer! Food was great, service was extraordinary. Loud venue but a great evening out.

Had a bachelorette night start there for drinks and dinner. A little disappointed in how short the show was (and that our table didn't have a good view of the dancers) but the incredible food, amazing service and hot servers made up for it. Great happening vibe!

I visit this restaurant every 2 months, and this time I did enjoy it as much as my previous experiences due to the long gap between servings. I had to ask our attendant to ask them to serve us more meat. Apart from that, everything was great as usual.

Service was inconsistent. Its timed seating and yet we experienced more that 15 minutes wait time between offerings of meat on numerous occassions. We were left feeling frustrated and unsatisfied. There needs to be a better system to make sure all the tables get served regularly and also get served the same options. We noticed many types of meat that never came by our table. I would not dine here again.

The Open Table reservation I made did not show up in their system and neither did the person before us who also booked at 7pm this past Friday. The staff made up for the Open Table issue and was able to seat us without delay.

Food was great. Wish the meat servers were a little more consistent as sometimes we were flooded with servers and then a big gap where we got skipped by.

The waiting staff were quite attentive and friendly as well the manager was walking around asking how things were was nice.

I am one of the fans of this resturant. But last time, one of the waiters was rude and pushy. Basically he was great in running our night! Usually the manager asks how was the food, bit last time he didn't. I would have told him if he asked and explained what happened so he can replace the unhappy waiter.
