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.

Food was great, servers stopped coming by with meats after about half an hour. We all had our cards flipped to “bring more” yet none ever came

Your food was amazing. The waitress bringing out the steak were so nice and outgoing. But your front desk workers need to fix up their attitude. And some of the females needs to put a fake smile on if that’s the case.

I went on a Saturday night with my boyfriend and my date was wonderful. From the food to the service to just the ambience of the restaurant we were both very pleased. I loved all the different options that will keep anyone happy. I will definitely be returning to this location soon.

The staff were quite rude, rarely smiled. We arrived quite early because we are from out of town but a group of the same amount of people for the same time reservation walked in and was seated right away. I think they should seat those that arrive first for their reservation if numbers are the same. Food was VERY slow to our table we even had to ask for stuff we saw go to other tables and not ours. The only reason this restaurant probably still functions and is ope is the quality of the food, it is very good.

We absolutely loved it here our waitress was awful and we had to also ask for her many times but Monica the bread lady was amazing and we enjoyed her and Bryan one of the men walking around with food never missed us always acknowledge us. This was our Anniversary date night and we dont get to go out a lot so I was disappointed in the waitress but everyone else made up for it.

Been to this location many times and it has always been great, last Friday when i went it was by far the worst experience at this location we were pretty much ignored by all the servers with food as there was a large party behind us they treated them as priority and the food never made it to us. Our server had to come by more then once asking if we wanted anything specific from the back and our only reply was to actually have food come by. All in all the food here is amazing and the restaurant is very good, but this time the service and lack of food was very noticeable especially when the whole point of the restaurant is to have the meat brought to the table as there is no other way to get it, made the price not justified this time around. I would go back as i hope this was a one off experience.

The food was delicious and the atmosphere was vibrant. Unfortunately, the heating system was down so it was cold. Then the credit card/debit card went down too so we had to wait around. Our server was friendly too. I would go back.

First, let me start off by saying that the food here is good, no complaints there. My gripe is with the way the meat servers don't come back to your table, even when you have the cards that they give you flipped to 'Green' to signal that you want more. We were ignored for the entire last hour of our seating time. What's the point of having the system if they're just going to ignore you? I had to ask 5 separate times to get someone to come back to our table, and even then they didn't return after that. The meat is the main part of the meal here, and I was very disappointed in the way that their service is provided. When I go to a nice restaurant I expect the service at least to be reasonably good, especially considering they add on an 18% gratuity automatically. Very disappointed.

This is my 2nd time to eat in Copa, i love the steaks and shrimp they are really good. I just wish there is more seafood options to choose from :) I wish there is a parking spot for guests, coz its hard to find one near the location. Customer service wise is excellent. 👌

Servers with the meat pick and choose which tables to offer the meat to. My table was consistently overlooked from the get-go. The servers seemed to prefer the table next to us and behind us. Even when the table next to us would decline to receive meat, servers with full skewers would then turn around and go to a different section, rather than offering it to our table. I complained about this to our server (who took our drink orders) and she said she'd let them know. From that point, servers asked us what kind of meat we wanted but wouldn't come back with it. We were ushered out 2 hours after our reservation time, despite being seated late (though we were early), and despite not being full. The only thing all you can eat here is the salad bar at the back. Not worth the money at all.

The quality of the grilled meats was spectacular, especially if you enjoy your steak rare to medium rare. We enjoy the experience of having meat carvers come by the table and seeing what they had to offer, not to mention how friendly and kind they are themselves. The buffet selection was plentiful; there was a variety that I believe appealed to all preferences. The seating is slightly closer together than you would like, so your neighbours conversation can easily heard, but the mood is quite up-beat so many don’t mind the closeness. I think the price reflects the value of the experience, just come with an empty stomach to truly make it worth your while.

Great place, excellent food however I was definitely upset about a comment your manager made towards me. 1 Hr 20 Minutes into our dinner which we spent well over $100 your manager came to our table asking if we wanted another refill of ice tea, we paid the $4.00 for. We had 2 prior to this. When I answered no to his question about wanting another refill he responded "good"..... Its good that I dont want another drink I spend plenty of money and for no reason he made this comment out of no where. I didnt respond back but that was definitely unexpected. Please forward this to him

Amazing food, great entertainment, fabulous guests services! I went there with two toddlers and being pregnant which makes everything uncomfortable but the bar attendants and servers were amazingly helpful! Even the dancers came and talked to kids which was a great great help to me to enjoy my time there! Also asked for well-done meat and bbq servers were soooooo conscious to serve me only well-done! I absolutely enjoyed my husband’s birthday there at the beautiful Copacabana.
Keep up the superb job! Xxxx

We arrived at the restaurant 45 minutes early after a theatre performance and they happily seated us early. Everything was fresh and delicious and there was so much meat offered to us. It was actually hard to keep up with the guys bringing the food around. Everything was so good I couldn't bring myself to pass on anything. Surprisingly enough my favourite were the cinnamon pineapple and the fresh baked corn muffins. The meat was all different in flavour and I never got "bored" with eating the meats offered. The servers were very friendly and we never went more than 5-10 minutes before they were back at our table with more meat. By the time we left (about an hour and twenty minutes later) I felt I honestly couldn't eat another mouthful. It was an amazing experience and would go back in a heart beat.

While the meats were good the buffet salad bar wasn't as good. The dining area was too crowded and loud for my taste. Sitting pretty much elbow to elbow with strangers doesn't exactly make for great comfort or ambience. I had hoped to see the dancers but the information about the time was lacking. We were celebrating our 50th anniversary and we were somewhat disappointed.

The service was terrible. You have a two-hour limit and we had 20 minute intervals where no food was coming around. We saw the same meat cuts 5 times in a row, while the others kept bypassing us. They do not have a good system to ensure that all selections get to each table in an even manner. It wasn’t until we complained to our waitress, that we started to get a variety of meats (30 mins before our limit came to an end). It was not worth the money.

There was hair in the food and we notified our waiter and what looked like a manager. They did not apologize or acknowledge it. Therefore we had to ask for a new plate and cutlery.

The concept of the restaurant is nice but the service was horrible
