Diner Reviews
  • "This truly is a fantastic dining experience. I have been to many Brazilian Steakhouses and none top Copa."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "If you want to have great tasting, fresh, and a variety of meats for a moderatly priced place. Then go to Copacabana! It's really quite a fun place. The service is excellent."

  • "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."

  • "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."

  • "Food was amazing especially the grilled pineapple. Theres a sweet rub beef that also is good but they have alot of variety of meats."
    Dined on 7/20/2014
  • "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."

  • "We had a awesome time at Copa..the meat just keeps on coming. Some of the best meat I have ever tasted. The corn bread was also amazing. You have to try it, you will not regreat it."

  • "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."

  • "Hi, Was really excited to CBSH and was let down by the service. The individuals bring around the meat were very nice and brought plenty of food. Our server was absent to say the least. I do not recall her name but she was from Columbia. I ordered a bottle of wine and the table absolutly loved it. I then ordered another and was informed that they were out. The waitress recommended one and it wasn't similar at all and didn't bring new wine glass, i asked her for new glass for the table and the attuide started with WHY...... Thats when a bad taste in my mouth happened."

  • "I was so full after. All of their meat was fresh, tender, moist and full of flavour. My favourite was the BBQ Flank Steak The roasted pineapple and the fried banana's were good as well."

  • "The second floor was a good place to watch the big game. Our waiter was great and took good care of us , the guys serving the meat not so much. Instead of cutting me a fresh slice of meat, one of them told me to pick up the scraps that had fallen to the bottom of the dish from previous slices cut for the 3 tables beside us which were cold and unappetizing by the time he got to me. He didn't seem to be enjoying his job at all. The food was otherwise very good. I will go again."

  • "Have a reservation for 9 , group of 8 people for a party. Didn't get seated till after 10! We weren't the only ones. Most people having to wait more than an hour even with a reservation. Really bad mgmt of the process Finally get seated . 20 minutes to get a drink order. Steak was good but had to ask 3 times for them to even come by with food. Not a good experience for everyone. Once you ever get food. It's good. Just not operated as a restaurant well. Not even an apology by staff. They all looked overwhelmed"

  • "Dinner was delicious and most of the servers were fantastic and very entertaining. Only let down about the food was it wasnt until the very end of the night that the "higher end" more popular meats were brought out and by that time we were stuffed to the max but forced a couple more bites down. We even had a non-meat eater in the group and she was given a discounted rate to eat at the salad bar. Show was a bit of a let down, was hoping for more. Even if they had more then two dances that ran all over so you more then a 2 second glimpse from your table. Was a very fun atmosphere."

  • "Restaurant made us wait for over 40 mins despite having a reservation. Food was slow to come and usually went to the bigger tables first... At the end we waited for over 30 minutes for the pineapple with cinnamon. Delicious and definitely worth a try.... But not the wait."

  • "First time at Copa. Food was amazing. Loved the atmosphere. My experience would have been better if we didn't have to wait to be seated 20 minutes past our reservation time. The entrance was very crowded, so we waited upstairs at the bar but because the noise level was loud and crowded as well we were afraid we would miss hearing our name. Other than that, everything was great and I would definately go back!"

  • "We had a reservation and arrived a couple of minutes early. Had to wait about 20 minutes before we were seated but not a big deal. Waitress was super nice, food was amazing. Was VERY noisy in there so was hard to hear each guy when he came around with the different meats but who cares - all the meat is great so you don't need to hear much about it!"

  • "My first experience here and I will definitely be going back! Food was amazing, meat carvers were great and very attentive to our needs. One person in our party of 8 only eats poultry and another does not eat pork, they never forgot and made a point of bringing extra of other stuff for these two -keep in mind the restaurant was packed this was very impressive Our waitress on the other hand, not impressive. Our party arrived a few at a time and I had to ask for a waitress to come to our table to take drink order, we were near the bar and I could see our drinks sitting on the bar for a very long time before she brought them (So long I forgot if I had actually ordered a drink) READ your receipt, they did not mention that the tip was INCLLUDED"

  • "I loved Copacabana! It was my second experience at the restaurant, but first at that specific location and it is now my favorite hands down. The only problem i had was the fact that i booked the reservation online trough Opentable and notified the restaurant that it was my boyfriends birthday. It disappointed me to have to remind my waitress of the special occasion we were celebrating, only because i wanted it to be a surprise. However a desert was brought to us with a sparkler which made my boyfriend very happy in addition to the great experience. One thing i would like to suggest is to try and create a less awkward seating arraignment for couples. I just felt to close to another couple sitting beside us."

  • "Really enjoyed the dining experience at Copacabana. The "Galleria" where there were salads and side dishes had an extensive variety of delicious choices. A highlight was their on-site bakery with terrific tasting hot breads. The staff was fantastic offering meats done to taste and ample opportunity to retry items you particularly enjoyed. There was a large variety of delicious meats and poultry - the beef dishes were particularly good. If I had any complaints it would be that all the meat items were somewhat salty for my taste and that the tasty fried bananas and grilled pineapple with cinnamon and sugar would not have been served in the middle of the meat service."

  • "Restaurant was very loud and lively for a Tuesday evening. I found your Eglinton location much more quiet and easier to have a conversation in. Obviously the food was amazing as expected, and almost made up for the negatives of the dining experience. Service was very friendly, we had a wobbly table and two servers took time to try to fix it. Was slighlty annoyed that we weren't moved to anothet table when it was found to be unfixable."

  • "We had reservations, so no wait for us ( Tuesday- not that busy), the service was very good, waitress checked in frequently and was quick to offer refills and change plates. My daughter especially enjoyed the cheese buns and at one point they ran out... when they were ready, they delivered to our table. The food was incredible and came quite often. I especially enjoyed the cheese stuffed prime rib, I am not sure that I will ever taste meat as perfect as that first bite.. slightly crispy and so flavorful! The salad bar had variety and there were also , a variety of breads, corn meal muffins, vegetables and warm dishes available. Important to pace yourself or its easy to leave feeling stuffed!"
