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!

Private Dining

Authentic Brazilian Rodizio. Immerse yourself in the culture through delectable eats, incredible cocktails and the best in live entertainment. There are no average nights at CopaCabana.

Servers and workers were very monotone and not very welcoming, except for two of the men bringing the food around. Very tight space, slippery floors, lack of variety in food selection. For the food that was available, it was very good.

By far the best restaurant I've ever been to! The price for the quality is amazing! Would go back without hesitation! Staff was very friendly and attentive, food was exceptional, and it wasn't too loud at all! 100% recommend to anyone!

Have been there multiple times. The last time I went I was there for about an hour. I had the same two meats come to me and even that only three times. I had to fill up on salad and pasta before I left because no one was bringing food and I was still hungry. For gods sake I didnt even get the pineapple. No one even came to ask if I would like an extra drink. By the time they did I had requested for the bill. Definitely not going back for an extended period of time.

I took my partner there for his FIRST time and he was blown away. I had been to Copa many times before and have always loved the experience so I wanted the same for him. He thought the food was amazing! Everything he ate, he said it was delicious. The sangria we had was also very delicious. The only downfall was that we didn’t get to try all the meat that was circulating. The guys always seems to skip our table and go to tables around us so by the time he would come back around, that option would be done from the skewer. But nonetheless, an eventful night with the entertainers and a delicious night with the food and drinks! :)

I went to Copacabana (Adelaide) with my husband and we had an absolutely amazing night. We went on a Saturday (late) and got to enjoy a Samba dance show. The gentlemen that were serving the meat were fantastic. Very friendly and even asked us what we liked most and made a point of bringing more of that meat to our table. There was a great variety of meat being brought around. I especially loved the Skirt Steak Dry, the roasted pineapple, Prime Rib with Cheddar and the leg of lamb. Shrimp was a bit disappointing. Decent Cocktails variety. Sangrias were good and Magalenha cocktail was great if you like bourbon.

Some Copacabana tips: don't fill up on the sides, save room for the meats!

The food which we did try was great, although the service was horrible. We probably tried 3 different meats. The waiters would skip by us even though our cards were flipped. I actually expected more from this place. Not that I have a problem paying 260 for 2 people, but you’d think the service would be a lot better. Probably my worst Copacabana experience yet.

This was our first experience at Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse and were recommended it by several friends. We thoroughly enjoyed the style of dining and the many delicious meats that were brought to our table. The design of the Adelaide location leaves a little to be desired in that, if you are seated upstairs, you have to walk up and down a flight of stairs to access the salad/vegetarian bar. The servers were polite and efficient. The tables were far too close together and were uncomfortable to navigate. The music was loud and made it hard to focus on conversations across the table (but that is a common issue with most restaurants). We paid $130 on a Saturday night for 2 people (no alcohol, just water). We enjoyed our experience and at some point in the future will explore the Niagara Falls location.

The food is excellent and the servers are extremely nice and helpful. The only thing is that they say you have a 2 hour time limit, but after 1 hour they almost completely stop coming by your table with food. It is a little disappointing when you are looking forward to having one of the items again. Overall it is a good restaurant

The meats that we were served was really delicious. But that’s the whole point, we weren’t served enough of food. The wait time between portions was way too long. We literally had to ask for some one to get us stuff, and even then we either had to wait or weren’t served at all or all the options. This restaurant is all about the meat.. but I truly feel that we would have got more of that, and of equally good quality at that, at The Keg or Chop, for the much lesser cost of a good steak there. My apologies for this long negative review, but I am really really disappointed. Thank you.

I'm from Brazil and it felt just like home. The food was delicious. The feijoada, farofa, vinaigrette sauce, and the meat, of course. Real Picanha. Just amazing. The service was remarkable as well. I'm definitely coming back.

My only recommendation is: French fries and fried yuka. That would make the experience 100% Brazilian.

We were seated at the end of top floor section .. walking up n down for the app buffet was a nuisance since there were people waiting for the tables on our way . Since we were at the end, there was hardly any meat service or by the time they came around it was all gone . It did say 2 hour time limit on saturdays but since the food didn’t arrive much I felt like our time was wasted in just waiting for it to come through . I felt like we were rushed to pay up and leave .. I would go back but avoid reserving on Sundays .

It was the worst experience I've ever had at a Copa. The service was the worst. My gfs and i got 6 pieces of meat and some shrimp. The guys came out with skewers of meat and never came to our table. Even when i asked for Filet mignon wrapped in bacon it never came to us. Yet the table next to us got all sorts of meat. The Uptown location gives lots of meat. I found myself fuming all night. Not worth the $60. Never coming back to the ADELAIDE location ever again. My gfs agreed it was not worth it and we are never coming back to this copa. That was a poorly spent $60 for us ladies who are already on a tight budget. I left hungry and angry. The ADELAIDE location is the worst. Bigger is definitely NOT better.

My only dissatisfaction with Copa was that we often felt skipped by the people bringing out the meat. The other problem I have exists with open table. I booked and confirmed an 18:00 dining time, however, the day of I received an email confirming the reservation again but for 19:00. I was not asked if I wanted to change my reservation, nor given any notice that it was changed until the last minute. Thankfully Copa was nice enough to accommodate the 18:00 seating.

Need to work on timing to not make it so obvious that you want guests in and out quickly. We we're bombarded with meat in the first half hour. By the one hour mark mostly the pineapple guy kept coming. One of our guests just wanted the lamb which only came once during the while night.

It was the first time at this Copacabana location. I feel this is the best location in the Toronto area in terms of ambiance and layout. Modern decor. Service was quite good. Meat servers were friendly and helpful. A few of the meat items were too salty though.

Restaurant is overpriced, food service is slow. I had to wait 5-10 minutes for servers to come around with the food. When servers asked if we had a request and we said yes and gave our request they never came back with it. I wouldn’t recommend anyone to this restaurant.
