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!

It took over 20 minutes just to get our drink order after we were seated. We were only offered 4 different meats repeatedly. We had to ask 3 different servers if we could get the other options on the listed menu, and even then those servers never returned. One of the servers got sauce all over our table and onto our clothes. Just an over all terrible experience.

The service was friendly but the food selection was not up to standard, especially the buffet selection.
We did not enjoy our experience there.

Been going here for years and also our preferred location in Toronto. Lost a star because the server's didn't get to us with all the options. Unfortunately, they've also taken a few of my faves off the menu.

I have only been to the downtown location for drinks and I enjoyed the scenery.
However, I really enjoyed my birthday with my family at this location. My family amazingly liked the revolving meat selection- steak (apprx 6 kinds), lamb, chicken, beef ... this place is a meat lover's dream! I liked the entertainment- kids were amazed ... they have only experienced these types of dancers on a resort! The only thing I found missing was a "proper dessert". While I/family loved the grilled pineapple with cinnamon mmmmm ... they should have had more of a dessert selection. That would have made 5 stars for me!
Thank you Copacabana!

Great food. Friendly service. My second time there and definitely will go back.

Criticism: Live music, while high quality, should have been piped through distributed speakers. We had a table next to the guitar/bass duo and we had to pause our conversation during songs because their amps were cranked so that the back of the huge restaurant could hear.

AMAZING!!! Took my husband out for his bday with a couple friends, he had never been and was NOT disappointed... if you love meat, especially of the red variety, you NEED to eat here!! Parmesan prime rib, garlic sirloin, mozzarella prime rib, grilled salmon and dry rub flank, just to mention a few of the mouthwatering meats that were presented to our table... drool... Antipasto bar is great, lots of selection.... staff were absolutely fantastic and super friendly... we will return, many, many times... thank you for a lovely night that had all four of us leaving with happy full bellies, some killer meat sweats and big smiles on our faces!!

Everything was great. The environment looked good. The food was amazing, the entertainment was great. Good looking and attentive servers. My only 2 small compliments was at my table my group had asked for cornbread and waited 40 minutes to get it and also it was obvious they were trying to rush us out the restaurant after a hour and a half which wasn’t a nice feeling on my birthday.

I didnt have a good experience because they were not flexible when it came to the 2 hr limit i was practically rush out the table some of my guess didnt even finished their plate when they had already ask to pay because they had people waiting for the table. I understand their policy but that just kill clients to go and celebrate anything in there.

Hi... We booked it for a birthday celebration for a group of 10+ people. Although it took about 30 min for all the guest to attend, but we felt very much rushed, cake was served at the middle of our meal and in general, I will not recommend this place for celebration at all. All you would feel is rush rush rush because they want to have next gust to rip off. lack of management, one of the guys in helpdesk was very rude ( an asian guy), rest of servers were ok... some of them actually very nice and a couple just OK. Our server herself was nice but she had to comply with the whoever was manager and pretty much kicked us out. We paid full price ( a bill over $800) but did not really feel that we were entertained nor welcome!
More important, on the website it says they have entertainment on Saturday, when booked and also clearly at front desk they told us the entertainment starts at 6:00 pm... and then our server said it was actually 7:30.... so again, we booked to be entertained on a birthday, but never able to see the dance as we were out before it ever started!
foods were VERY salty... I can say out of different skews they delivered, I was able to have chicken (only one of them) and a premium stake as rest of them was extreme salty....is that a normal thing in a Brazilian restaurant to be unwelcome, have salty food and sever your cake at the middle of your dinner? I do not recommend this place to anyone and will not be returning to any of their locations. to be honest, I feel we waisted our time and money. If anywhere else, they would have refunded the charge as they really ruined our birthdays... we ended up going to a coffeeshop to celebrate a real birthday!
About the ambience, it was old tables, not clean chairs and in general, OK but could have been better cleaned up!
overall: not recommended for celebration of any kind - only if you are out of options and small group,,,, and only after 7:30pm....

Worst experience I could have ever imagined. First of all, I BOOKED A TABLE FOR 9:30PM and my table only got seated at 10pm. Hostess did not care about her job, waved me off when I asked how much longer would I have to wait for my table of 11. We were then told we had 20 minutes to eat because they were closing kitchen soon (remember, we waited half an hour because OF THEM IN THE FIRST PLACE). Second, drinks took forever to arrive, got them mixed up as well. Food was ok, nothing special so honestly it was not worth $50.

AND YOU CHARGED MY VEGETARIAN FRIEND $40 FOR HIS PLATE!!! like what the?!??? Basically he paid $40 for vegetables and bread. We pay $50 WITH MEAT. SOMETHING IS WRONG THERE.

In the end, I was told I would get a free dinner because it was my birthday (I called the number provided on OpenTable) even though it wasn’t on the same day BUT I ENDED UP PAYING BECAUSE THE GIRL SAID THERE WAS NO MAN WHO ANSWERS PHONES AND IF YOUR BIRTHDAY ISNT ON THE SAME DAY THEY CANNOT OFFER YOU THE FREE MEAL. So I was basically called a liar for having SOMEONE FROM THEIR establishment tell me something completely different. AND WE WAITED 25 MINS TO GET OUR BILLS. I honestly will NOT be going to any copa cabana, not for myself or any birthday or event.

I have to say that I was very disappointed with one of the servers. He was very abrupt and very rude. But when I said something to one of the other servers, that server tried his best to make up for it. Unfortunately, the service that we received from the first server had already ruined the meal for us.

The food was amazing, and the servers bringing around the meats came frequently. However, if you are a large group I would stay clear of this restaurant. They Auto-grat for groups 8 or larger. In most restaurants this is normal. The downside to this restaurant is their waitresses give you zero attention if auto-grat is present. It took approximately 20 minutes for our first set of drinks to arrive, and we didn't see the waitress for another 30 minutes after that.I would also like to point out that our group had 9 people in it. It should not take a server 20 minutes to get 5 sodas, 3 beers, and a cocktail. At one point one of the members of our group had to go to the bar himself to get another drink, yet we still had to provide 15% tip. If you want a great experience as well as great service don't go here. Despite the great food, a sour taste was left in our mouths.

Reserved a table for Nov. 24th at 7:30pm for 15 adults and 3 children several weeks before. It’s was a Family get together and everyone was looking forward to it. Arrived at the Eglinton location a few minutes before 7:30pm and was told our table is not ready yet which was fine but had to wait until 8pm to get a table meanwhile there was 2 long tables that became available earlier that can sit all of us but we were ignored and they separated the tables to sit other smallest groups but we were there before everyone else and had to wait longer... We made the reservations several weeks in advance, they should have planned the tables or sitting accordingly... the ladies by the door that welcomes you were not very friendly and were kind of rude whenever we asked them when our table will be ready. There is a 2 hour limit for dine in, we finally got a table (2 separate tables though I was nice enough to request a long table for all of us) at around 8ish - by 9:30pm the waitress was hovering over us already and they were cleaning our tables already while we’re still seating. We didn’t get a table until 8ish - so we have only been sitting for one hour and a half. We felt very awkward and felt like they want to get rid of us. We spent more than $1000 that night, for 1.5 hour - a little kindness and consideration from the Staff would have been appreciated.

I AM ALSO STILL WAITING FOR $150 BACK. When the reservation was made, they charged $150 on my credit card for reservation. At the end of the night, I thought they will deduct the deposit from the total bill but was told by one of the waitress that we should just pay the whole amount and they will just put the $150 back to my credit card at midnight. Until now, it’s been 2 days, I am not sure how long refund takes, but I had left several messages to follow up and no one has called me back yet. Hoping that I will get $150 back soon. Hopefully someone will confirm that the money has been refunded.

Excellent, top notch meats. Cold bar needs a lot of improvement in terms of flavour and quality.

Staff is exceptional and very friendly, as is the manager at this location.

Highly recommended. BUT make sure you make a reservation well in advance, as it is fully booked on the weekends.

Great meat, some are salty but overall fresh and tasty. Food selections other than bbq meat are limited, no dessert, only 2 fruits. The broccoli was even serve cold. The plates were cold as well, not even warmed. $45 per person during week is over the value of the meal. Too pricy. I will go to Mandarin instead next time.

The food we got was good but we got the same 3 or 4 items the entire time we were there. On top of that we were there for almost an hour and never got a server, never got drinks. The manager came by at the end and was very very kind and took care of us before we left. We will return it was just disappointing considering with a new baby we arent able to get out very often and were excited for a great night out.
