Diner Reviews
  • "Great experience, will definitely be back soon! Look forward to sitting in a different section, on a busier night. I was expecting a lively, chatty ambiance but it was a quieter Sunday which worked out perfect too. Constantly recommending you to friends and look forward to coming back."

  • "The restaurant was decorated beautifully, but the meat it self was not seasoned as Brazilian seasoning goes. I would recommend to someone who enjoys eating meat but not for anyone wanted a true Brazilian rodizo"

  • "A great hot spot for Brazilian steakhouse, the best I've been to in the city. All you can eat meat, and the grilled pineapple is amazing. Great selection with the non-meat buffet with your typical Brazilian cuisine."

  • "food was good however the service was lacking. Our waitress was not very attentive after seating us and explaining how the dining works. Meat carvers were also lacking in service as we made several requests for specific types of meat (only after the carver asked us if we had any requests) that were ignored for at least half an hour. Not sure why they would suggest that we request something to be brought over if they weren't going to bring it for at least half an hour. Also, cards with a list of what meats are offered would have been very helpful along with a green/red card that Brazilian steakhouses normally have. However, both these were not used as we were told that they had all been ruined therefore they are no longer used."

  • "Had the best table in the house - upstairs by the big giant window overlooking the streets of TO. Service was phenomenal, from the meat carvers, our waitress, down to the Brazilian dancers/acrobats. Drinks were a little pricey but we didn't mind. We were celebrating so we didn't hold back. The food - fantastic! Wonderful fresh breads /cheeses and cold cuts downstairs (main buffet) and the never ending meats carved right at your plate! What more can you ask for? We had an amazing time!"

  • "Thank you very much for hosting our work outing, and there were 8 of us that had the Brazilian BBQ. The service and the food were fantastic! We also enjoyed the ambiance, but would like to go on a weekend to also watch the entertainment since we went on a Tuesday evening. Thanks for a wonderful evening!"

  • "Adelaide is the newest of 3 Copacabana locations & the coolest-looking one in the Entertainment District downtown Toronto. It has a vibrant bar scene on Fridays & Saturdays frequented by Bay Street financial crowd for happy hour & dinner. 20+ types of meat done in its natural or infused flavours. The special Brazilian steak & garlic striploin are my FAVs. The salad bar is smaller than COPA on Eglinton East, with pastas and mussels & freshly baked breads. Dessert is by order. After sampling different cuts/taste of meats, you are FULL. The grilled pineapple with brown sugar & cinnamon is my absolute favourite. Who needs dessert after multiple servings of yummy pineapple!?! LOVE the Red Sangria! Good wine list & attentive service!"

  • "The food was great! Only thing about the meal was our beverages, we ordered sangria and it tasted different Everytime we ordered one. I hate to say it but our service was horrible, we felt so rushed it was uncomfortable. Our server brought us our bill before we were even done eating, we had to ask for things more than once (like clean utensils and drinks we had ordered) out drinks were cleared before they were done and finally, the one thing that really bothered us was we had a birthday girl with us and we asked for a dessert to be brought to her, our server brought the dessert and began to sing while half the table was missing and people were still eating dinner. So while the food is excellent, the service needs work."

  • "We've been to the Copa on Eglinton, this is our first visit to the Adelaide location....and definitely wont be our last! We had reservations and were greeted immediately upon arrival and taken to our table within seconds! Our friendly server came to our table frequently to check on us! the entertainment was very...entertaining!!! Our table was in a corner so it was a little difficult for the servers to get to us. The food was outstanding! Every cut of meat was perfect! The salad bar had amazing variety, something for every palate. Can't wait to visit them again!"

  • "Copacabana is great place to go for meat lovers. You have to go hungry, because there is a lot of food. The meat starts coming right away, and it keeps coming non stop. I like medium rare food and got what I wanted. There are so many options! My favourite cuts were the flank steak, the filet minon wrapped in bacon, and the picanha, both regular or with Parmesan cheese. They kept asking me if I had any requests. For side dish I recommend the fried cassava and rice and black bean stew, traditional Brazilian food. For dessert I had the roasted pineapple and corn bread. Both to die for, though I had to wait a bit for the pineapple."

  • "the food was truly very good. great for meat lovers. the sangria could have been stronger. it was more juice then anything, and the service is what i am undecided about. We had many server's, and some of them were truly really good and friendly. While others were very serious, and border line void of personality. The server's that were more social were truly pleasant. it was overall very good."

  • "So first I have to say that the service here was terrific. Everyone was so attentive that it felt like we had 5 or 6 servers instead of just one. The food, while good, was a bit of a let down after having been to your Niagara Falls location. Excellent flavour, but not enough non-beef options or sides. I know it's a Brazilian steakhouse, but the Niagara falls location has more chicken, turkey, and seafood options, and about twice as many sides as this location. All in all though, I had a good time and would recommend it for the experience (and for those that can't get to Niagara Falls)."

  • "I booked a table for 6 for my 35th Birthday. Our renovation was at 9:30 and we didn't get our table until 10:30! We were starving and a little cranky after waiting over an hour for a table we reserved a week prior. The restaurant didn't offer us anything and no manager came to the table to check on us. I was really disappointed, I felt cheated out of a nice birthday meal with my friends and family. Also, the bartenders at the bar were not friendly and took forever to ask us if we wanted a drink while we waited for the table. That being said the food and table service was great!! My partner is Brazilian and knows his Brazilian BBQ and he loved it. Even thought we were disappointed...we will be back, the food was that good!"

  • "They have no respect for the reservation process. When talking with other waiting patrons we found that most people were waiting for an hour or more. That is with reservations. I found them being very disorganized. When I started keeping track I found them seating other parties thinking it was ours. Then having the audacity to blame us for the type of booking we made. The food was good but not great. I went there for my brother stag night and I must say that this put a damper on the whole evening. We would have not been seated at all if I were not being so adamant with management and the staff. No sorry from management at all. I expected a lot more from this place. Very disappointed. Wait staff were nice but cannot bring myself to go back."

  • "First time for me and my boyfriend to attend Copacabana. We came to celebrate our 3rd year anniversary and wanted to do something different. We didn't know what to expect besides walking into a classy AYCE restaurant. The food was outstanding and the service was amazing. Our waiter made sure we were well taken care of (i.e. replenish water quickly, provide new clean dishes). The servers came around faster with the food than we could clear off our plates. We sat on the first level next to the kitchen/fresh food bar and had a great view of the dancers during the evening. My favorite of the night was the fried banana, grilled pineapple, and parmesan fillet mignion. All the meats were cooked perfectly - Great place for foodies!"

  • "The restaurant food and service was amazing. The workers were very attentive to us. The Parking was close by, so made it easier. Just one concern to all of us the music was very loud. But overall the experience was great."
    Dined on 7/25/2014
  • "Food was excellent and service was attentive. It can take a while before the service can settle into a steady rhythm, and so at times it can feel like one is sitting around waiting too long. However, the service was polite, attentive, and friendly and the food was top-notch. Can't really ask for much more than that."

  • "We had an excellent meal, however our server seemed to be a bad mood and presented the bill exactly 2 hours later, and never offered us dessert - till we had to ask, at which point she reminded us of the two hour limit. She expected us to keep track of time after 3 bottles of wine and eating soo much good food. I'd rather drive to Niagara to get better service from Mississauga, then drive to this downtown location and get this level of poor service."

  • "Very small salad bar... Meat selections very limited -- we only got a fraction of what was listed online . Went on a friday night, where the menu adds suckling pig, salmon and shrimp.. Only salmon was offered - very misleading as you are paying more on the weekend. Annoying that they didn't have the colored card, red on one side and green on the other , ie. the servers will only bring more meat if the card is flipped to the green side. They kept asking us if we wanted meat when we didn't... I've been to Brasa and Copacabana pales in comparison. Will not return."

  • "Steaks were amazing, chicken too! A little upset there wasn't any lamb or seafood the Wednesday night we went. But I was quite surprised I was charged to drink water - especially when we didn't order or ask for water but it was poured upon seating!!! It wasn't even sparkling or even distilled."
    Dined on 7/23/2014
  • "I was quite disappointed with the service. Our server was very unattentive. They start you off with some stilled water which you assume is free until the bill comes and you see you are charged extra for it. We ordered a bottle of white wine which only the first glass was poured. We speny the rest of the night pouring it ourselves. In addition we had to specifically ask for our wine to be chilled. Every other restaurant I've been to automatically will bring an ice bucket when I order white wine. The men serving meat in my opinion were more attentive to our needs asking what meats we wanted and if there was anything else we needed. Overall the food was good but the service is what made me not want to go back."

  • "This was not a great dining experience. We made a reservation but were not seated until 30 mins after the reservation. One major problem was that the food did not come in good quantities or variety. I recall only having steak and pineapple the entire time. No chicken, no pork, no lamb, no seafood, nothing else. While the steak was decent, there should have been a larger variety. The menu lists over 20 items and we only got maybe 5 of those items. The Eglinton location may be better but I would not go back to the downtown location."

  • "Service was bad from the start, hostess didn't pay attention to us as we checked in; bartender didn't acknowledge us as we waited for drink menus or to place an order, we had to keep asking other waiters around for help instead; and we waited seated at our table wondering if we could order drinks before going to collect plates for our sides. After you get past the bad service (perhaps they are still all training) the good was great! Side buffet was all amazing, so were the grilled meats however they could have offered more than just tiny slivers of each."

  • "Loved all the meat they served! Extremely well seasoned and cooked. There wasn't a single piece of I didn't enjoy! My mom loved it too and she is very hard to please. The servers were attentive and the meat just kept on coming! We had a great meal and a enjoyed the show as well."

  • "We had a reservation for 8 for 8pm and we arrived at the restaurant around 7:20pm and went to the bar to wait until 8:20pm. I kept seeing empty tables for big groups throughout my waiting period so I don't understand how their seating arrangement works. As soon as we were seated, we were told to go to the salad bar, and then the meat guys started to come pretty often so the service after we got seated got considerably better. In terms of food, the sides provided at the salad bar were way tastier than the meats which were overly salty and, aside from one or two cuts, the meats were nothing out of the ordinary. The servers and the show are what saved this dinner. I would probably not come back more than once a year."
    Dined on 7/18/2014
  • "We had made a reservation for 7:30 but were not seated until 8:15. Their reasoning was "we have a two-hour seating limit but we can't ask people to leave". I'm not sure what the point of having a time limit if you can't control what time a group leaves. This left us a little upset before we even started eating. Other than that the food and dancers were great."

  • "I was there with a friend on Thursday night -- seated on the 2nd floor by the open windows. Place seemed very nice. Food was ok but the service was horrible. After 3 requests and 25 minutes I decided to go to the bar to get a glass of water. Server seemed MIA thruout the evening. Getting the bill was another challenge - several requests and another 20 minute wait. I don't think I'll try this location again."

  • "Every year for my boyfriend's birthday, I try to find a new "type" of restaurant to experience, to make each celebration memorable. After doing some research, I decided to go with Copacabana, and we were both SO glad I did!! The meat selections were savoury, spicy, perfectly done, and widely varied. The Harvest Table selections were unique, fresh, and were kept in small portions, so that they were constantly being freshly prepared. The service was fantastic, consistent and very considerate. Definitely a recommend from both of us, and we will be back!! The only disappointment would have to be that the "live entertainment" on the website must be weekends only, but this is not specified on the website, however, I should have asked."
