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.

The atmosphere is great but I was disappointed at how long we waited to have different cuts of meat brought out to us. There were long gaps of time in between table visits during which we were just waiting and filling up on sides because we were hungry. Also, I was surprised that there were no dessert offerings in the buffet. Still, a unique restaurant and the meat is delicious (when it comes around).

I would most definitely recommend the Copacabana on Adelaide. We had reservations for 5:30 and were seated immediately. Some may scoff at that but it's worth pointing out. Drink orders came out very fast. Another thing some may take for granted. Sometimes you can place and drink order and wonder what happened to your server. Management came by to make sure we were enjoying ourselves and to check if we needed anything on more than one occasion. The salad bar, breads and other hot foods were really nice (cool variety of items) but we were there for the meat. Wonderful cuts. Well-cooked. Hot. Great selection of steaks along with chicken, shrimp, and grilled pineapple. There were some dancers and a young lady who did aerial silk acrobatics who performed at one point during the evening. It was quite something. It couldn't have been a better way to spend our evening. We would go back for sure.

My partner and I went for her birthday, the service was well timed and friendly, however, they forgot to bring us utensils and we had to ask three different servers to bring us some, additionally they did nothing to acknowledge that we were celebrating a special occasion even though I made sure to call them in advance and I also wrote it down in our reservation.

Food and service were excellent. All meat sampled was delicious. The side dishes were fresh, there was a great assortment. The best thing was the roasted pineapple with cinnamon - it was absolutely fabulous. The only negative thing was that the coffee wasn't what you would expect in a Brazilian restaurant - not horrible, just not very good. The noise level was very high, which took away some of the enjoyment for me, as I couldn't converse with my dining companion without almost yelling across the table.

Service was great, the only thing is that I went to celebrate my birthday on Sunday because my Birthday was on Monday. And one person of the group had mentioned it, and not even a little cupcake I got. People that work during the week and evenings is hard to celebrate their birthday during the week. Also should serve the corn bread more often instead of one time. Overall staff very friendly and efficient. Thank you

P.s my husband and I was first time.

We were in a corner table around 3 large group tables. Seemed that the servers preferred to go to the larger tables than to us, especially the female server to the all male table.

We were there on Sat., April 13, 2019 and had a great experience. We were celebrating our son's birthday. He is 14 and LOVES his meat, so this was a treat. He was in HEAVEN. Food kept coming and the quality was very good. Warning...if you are someone who likes their meat well done, then you likely won't prefer the meat brought by the servers. It is tender and juicy, but done to medium I would guess. My only wish is that they still carried the sausages. I was looking forward to that, but they don't offer them anymore. The options were beef, chicken and shrimp dine various ways. The salad bar and sides were nice as well. I have an AIP diet and I was able to find some plain veggies I could have. The pineapple was as amazing as we remembered from our last visit!

Re: the show: We ended up seeing some of the dancers around 7pm or so. They were excellent!

Loved the lively atmosphere. Not a quiet place, but that's what we wanted!

Great night out and our son was thrilled!

There was a period of time, roughly 45 mins where we were not served any meat or anything at all. This was a very long time as you only have 2 hours. We told our waitress and she had told them but they still had never come. I was very disappointed in this as, they were going to every table but ours.

The service was extremely slow. Our server did not come around often and brought us a steak sauce at the end of our meal once she had already collected our plates. We asked for specific items to come back around multiple times and never got them.

It was my daughters 14th birthday and this is her favorite place on earth. 2 of my family members have never been to Copa Cabana and after leaving here, they have already started making arrangements to come back. Our server was THE BEST. She made my children feel like they were the only ones in the whole building. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU

The food quality is great and so is the atmosphere. However, the service on our visit was poor. We were in a group of 5 and the servers were repeatedly skipping our table and/or running out of food. We did not recieve the quantity of food that we wanted, nor did we recieve the selection of food that we wanted.

Biggest issue was service... we were brought bananas and pineapple before any meat... we also couldn’t get shrimp even if we begged. Asked countless times and didn’t get the option of shrimp until we requested our bills. All and all, great experience. First time and won’t be the last time I visit Copa Cabanas.

Service was not attentive to our table even after asking for specific items, other tables near by were served the items. Another aspect of the experience was asking for a specific type of wine and being charged for the more expensive wine after specifically pointing the wine on the menu.

We only came to the Adelaide location because the Eglinton location is under going renovations. My family and I were extremely disappointed in this location, considering this was supposed to be the 'better' location of the two.

We were a table of 9, and seated on the 3rd floor, in the back corner. Our sever was pleasant (she is not what we had an issue with). Although it was hard to find our server at times and get her attention, when we got her attention, she was pleasant.

The problem we had is how much we were IGNORED by the meat carvers/servers.
The meat carvers/servers barely came to our table, and when they served the people seated next to us, they walked away without coming to our table, and instead went to another table nearby. And yes, our cards were flipped to the YES for meat side. Value for the money? No because we weren't able to eat all of the meat we wanted before our 2hrs were up and had to leave our table.

It was very annoying to see the carvers SKIP our table, but serve all the tables around us. Our family was still hungry by the end of the evening but we were not able to stay any longer as our time was up. Also, maybe because we were seated at the very back corner, every time we did get served, the meat was cold by the time it reached us.

Layout is a tad bit confined when it comes to multiple people getting up at the same time to plate at the buffet.

Food is awesome, value is OK (on the high range of price, but the food kind of makes sense), place is great, only downside is where your table is at. If seated in main floor, you have access to open salad bar, and servers will come to you quicker. If seated on second floor, not so much. Also you miss a bit of the show. Other than that, it's a great place to go.

The food was great however the impression of the evening was overshadowed by a lack of communication between staff. I had specified we were celebrating a birthday when I made our reservation, with the hostess upon arrival and also with a waitress but when we were finished eating I went to the washroom and returned to find the bill sitting with the person who’s birthday it was and no dessert or offer. Disappointing. I paid and said again to the waitress that we’re celebrating a birthday and she acted as though I put her out but returned shortly after with a dessert. I made every effort to ensure this exact awkward scenario wouldn’t arise by specifying discreetly to staff numerous times it’s a birthday. Not a great impression.
