A word from Copacabana Brazilian Steak House- Toronto
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 in regards to temperature (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 using your provided tongs simply grasp the slice of meat at the top and assist your carver as he thinly slices a perfect cut of meat onto your plate…. enjoy… and repeat as many times as you like

    They were out of a couple of our favourites but had a couple things that we've never had before there so it balanced out in the end. The service was excellent and very friendly and the dancers were beautiful. The steaks and other meats were really good as usual. The head server was great. He brought out whatever we asked for.

    I have been to this location several times & always have a great experience. I was finally able to get my boyfriend to come but for some reason the service was horrible! The floors were a mess I'm surprised nobody slipped considering all the servers were scrambling everywhere. Meat wasn't coming around, our plates weren't being cleared, & we had to ask repeatedly for water. The saving grace was the live musician & the corn bread. To make matters worse we both went home with upset stomachs. I was a little embarrassed because I have been recommending this restaurant for months & for some reason this occasion was a let down. On labour day, schedule more staff & offer salmon since you're charging the weekend price.

    This was my first time at CopaCabana and my boyfriend's second time. Great food. Great service. The servers took the time to find out how we like our meat and made special requests for my boyfriend who preferred his meat a "less pink". It was a great experience and would recommend the Eglinton location. Salad bar had great choices. The mac n cheese and mashed potatoes are to die for. Garlic steak - delish!!! Meats are high quality and flavourful throughout. Great experience overall. Will be back.

    Some friends suggested this restaurant and raved about how great it was...... Super disappointed ! The restaurant was tattered, outdated and underwhelming to say the least. We've been to to many terrific restaurants through opentable this was a surprise, maybe we're spoiled? The food was mall food court material..

    We eat at this location 2-3 times a year and are never disappointed. They've upgraded their salad bar, which is nice, but let's be honest, we're not coming for the vegetables. The meat was plentiful and delicious, the variety satisfying. Servers were attentive. We'll be back

    I fell inlove with the steaks! Great variety of steaks and salads. Overall i had an amazing time as a "night out with the girls". The atmosphere is great especially the live band/performances. The only thing i noticed is when you flipped your card as "cool down" (advising the servers to give you a break), they still continue to serve you food. Dont get me wrong...i'd like to eat as much as i can but i cant eat that quick...and it just leaves my food cold cuz it's all piled up. Drinks are a little pricey but you kinda expet it in a place this fancy. Also had a couple of snotty servers... Other than that, GREAT PLACE!!! SO TOTALLY WORTH THE PRICE YOU PAY FOR! :)

    We enjoyed our meal very much and the service was excellent. We have been celebrating my son's birthday for 3 years now at Copacabana. I told the restaurant 3 years ago that it was his birthday celebration and they still remembered this time. A nice dessert plate was brought out with a candle and all. We will be back on his next birthday for sure.

    Service was awesome, the salad bar was great. I really enjoyed the live band and the music. There was a good selection of different meat to choose from, which included beef, chicken, lamb and pork. I loved everything about this restaurant except the meat was very high in sodium. The selection of meat were all very salty.

    This was my first time going to a Brazilian Steakhouse and it was absolutely fantastic! The food was great - lots of seasoned meats to choose from. Some were a little salty though so I felt thirsty until the evening of the next day even though I was properly hydrating myself. Service was great and it was such a new and fun experience overall! Would definitely come back!

    This was my first time eating at Brazilian Steak house. I'm not a huge meat eater but my husband wanted to try it. Overall the food was good but found they took quite a while to come around at. Also there were other items being served (corn bread, etc.) and our table would be missed all together. When the servers did come by, they were really friendly and asked if we had any special requests. Once we made those requests, they came back to serve us with those meats. I would definitely try it again. P.S. Don't fill up on the salad bar (my big mistake as they had so many good options).

    Food was excellent here! My only complaint was that the service from the meat guys was a bit slow. Slow as in not a lot were coming to our table. There were times where no one come to us until after 5 minutes. We'd be sitting there waiting and staring at them serving the other tables but not ours. It was quite busy as it was summerlicious.

    The meat was tasty and we were really full! The salad bar and sides were great too. I was surprised to be charged $1.00 per person for water on my bill, especially since I did not see it come out of a bottle, it was brought to us in a caraf. I thought that was a bit cheeky and tacky on the part of the restaurant. Especially since no servers mentioned it or specified "tap or bottle" when we asked for water.

    My boyfriend and I went for the $35 Summerlicious dinner. The food was delicious (especially the parmesan- and bacon- crusted meats) and very filling, and the live band added a nice touch! There was a wide variety of meats and salads/sides. We ordered lime caipirinhas, which were also good. The service was quite good, as the servers and manager stopped by several times to ask if we had been able to try everything on the menu that we wanted. It could have been even better if our main server was a little more attentive.

    You would think that the wide variety of meats would lower each dish's quality, but food was A-plus and I would definitely recommend Copacabana to my friends (or anyone who will listen). Favourites were the meat with Chimichurri, Beef ribs, and Meat with cheddar. The grilled pineapple and mashed potatoes were very notable as well.

    Copacabana has the great food ever in my opinion. As Brazilian, I could feel part of my coulture while i was there. Meets were tasting very well, the staffs were working pretty good as well and I could have an amazing brazilian experience outside of my country. The only thing that i would like to point out is about the noise. I know how brazilians are energetic, but the band was playing too loud. Sometimes we couldnt talk because we could not hear each other.

    Had my son's graduation here. Food service was great, bar service a bit slow as drinks had not arrived prior to food. Wine was served 15 minutes into dinner and 30 minutes to get a second cocktail for those not drinking wine. Ran out of espresso coffee at 6:45pm. Carvers were great and the food was excellent. Salad bar was excellent.

The meat is served at your table and is always tasty. I recommend this restaurant as a unique dining experience and it is a great place to bring friends. They have entertainment during dinner on the weekends. It is a little expensive but every once in a while it is worth it.

    I treated 2 siblings to dinner on a sunday because of their interest and hunger for the brazilian steakhouse experience. I have previously been to Brasa in Niagara Falls and had a fantastic time, hoping to have the same at Copa. Copa advertised to offer more cuts of meat than Brasa, which had me excited to check them out. I made reservations thinking it would be packed for the weekend (went sunday only because it suited everyone's schedules), but it was bare. The service was slow, though very friendly. The meats were very undercooked and the selection of options were very small considering what was advertised. Meats came out slow, and my plate was empty on many occassions waiting. For the price, I was very unhappy with my experience.
