The Copa Not So Hot
Was impressed with food presentation and most of the cuts presented. Salad bar was limited by most standards. Service was inconsistent and we basically ignored for the last 30 minutes that we were there.
I would recommend this restaurant to a friend because it is a unique and fun dining experience, but would warn them that the service is only OK.

Go in for a big feast, their meat selection is amazing. Barbecued pineapple is delicious and can be combined with the meats as well as a sweet treat at the end.

A very FUN evening! The Staff
A very FUN evening! The Staff is amazing, especially Juan and Romane who came around carving the different types of meat. So much to try. Definitely a meat lovers night! But, I must say the Salad Bar is Great too! To balance off the meat. Loved the marinated avocados,so fresh, also their version of coleslaw, quinoa,green,beets...everything. And the grilled pineapple! Yummy! Plus, the guitar, and bass player doing some Eric Clapton songs, amazing! Overall a great night, will definitely come back again.

After eating at many Brazilian steakhouses in North America, this was the best one. Food was great and service was spot on.

Could do without the Wednesday
Could do without the Wednesday night lounge singer...rather mediocre. Other than that, exactly what we expected and were hoping for. Food is excellent. Look closely at the starter buffet. Lots of goodies tucked away on the side rails that really add to it. Would be easier if the dishes were labeled, too.

It's an excellent place to try rodizio grilled meats. I would definitely go back again.

A good Venue for our party celebrating a 50th birthday. Take your time when the service starts or your meal will be over quickly. The temptation is overwhelming and the quality is excellent. I will go back

They keep delivering great
They keep delivering great tasting ( but bit salted) meat even when you turn the sign to stop.

We went for my mom's birthday and the service was impeccable. Our server was very helpful and very accomodating. The food was so good, the meat was good and the buffet was so filling. When the cake came out my mom blew her candles and they cut the cake for her. We were lucky to get front table seating right infront of the entertainment. My family, all 5 of us would definitely recommend this place and come back :)

Don't miss it but don't go late
Me and my friends love copacabana , but this time we went at 9 pm and they close at 10pm, so we missed many kinds of meat plus we had very bad sevice not ad usual.
4/30/2013 4:00:00 PM
Don't go early...
Our reservation was for 4:30pm when the restaurant opens. I wouldn't recommend going at this time as the food is not exactly coming out quickly. We waited quite a bit of time for the meats to start to come to us. We noticed the meats were going to the tables near the window (we were closer to the buffet/kitchen) and then missing us on the way back to the kitchen. We had to ask many times for rolls, meats, pineapple and bananas. They didn't bring enough buns or bananas for our whole table and we didn't even get offered the corn muffins. I have been there before and the entertainment, atmosphere and service was much, much better. Not sure if they ignored us because we had a child with us, but there were 7 adults there so lots of money spent

It's an 'all you can eat' so I wasn't expecting all that much. But yeah, I was wrong. So much tasty meat. 1st dish (lamb chop) was really good, and it just got better from there. The prime rib with cheddar was my favourite. I really liked the way they did the pineapple. Wasnt planning on eating the pineapple cause I didn't want to fill myself up on that. But I took some anyway, and I didn't regret it for a moment.
Service was exceptional too. Different waiters bring out food. 1 was grumpy, but the others were great. They kept asking us if there was a particular dish that we wanted (and then they'd get it for us in a timely manner). Very surprising for an all you can eat place. Our main waitress was cute, friendly and knowledgable

First time at Copacabana and was pleasantly surprised by how much it exceeded my expectations. The service was great, all of the servers were very attentive, the food was great and we really enjoyed the entertainment. Definitely planning to go again!!
5/16/2013 4:00:00 PM
Only word for this place is amazing!! We will be back wife wanted to go again the next night. Lol.
5/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Good for meat lovers
Generally very good for meat lovers and my group enjoyed the night though we asked for 4 or 5 times for the pineapple.
5/29/2013 4:00:00 PM
Loved it !
If you like MEAT- you'll like this place. The meat was delicious- and the servers would give you as much as you wanted.
On a Thursday night the place was about 80% full and the noise level was loud- it was hard to hear a conversation across the table without yelling. I'm not sure I'd be happy with the noise of a full house on a weekend.
Still- highly recommended. It's not only a meal, it's an 'experience'.

CopaCabana Birthday Bash
We took my brother to CopaCabana and EVERYONE I mean EVERYONR loved it, even my 1 year old niece! There's something for everybody. This is our new hot spot not only for family, but also friends!
6/7/2013 4:00:00 PM
Awesome management team they really care
I just wish they would bring different levels of cooked meat
Instead of all rare and you have to order and wait for more cooked
6/10/2013 4:00:00 PM
I booked reservations for 2 people at Copacabana for June 12th 2013. It was an anniversary dinner with my girlfriend. It was an absolutely wonderful experience from beginning to end! From the moment we were seated, we were served in a timely manner and the severs continued to come to our table throughout our dinner. Would have changed a thing at all. Went on a weekday night so the restaurant wasnt busy at all.
Would definitely come here again! It was one of the best dinning experiences I've had and its only added to my wonderful evening.
6/11/2013 4:00:00 PM

6/12/2013 4:00:00 PM
LOVE! LOVE! LOVE!
I came here the first time for a friends bday and fell in love with this resto. I've been here twice and it was just as great as the first time. Everything from food to the beautiful servers to the entertainment was A+++ i would definitely recommend to anyone wanting a great dining experience and great food in Toronto.
6/15/2013 4:00:00 PM
CopaCabana is awesome!
This was my second time and I enjoyed my stay again! Amazing picana! Love the Pineapple worth cinnamon and sugar! Would love to go there again!
6/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Selection is great
The food is great because of the sheer amount of options that come around from the servers. The concept is very interesting, I had come here twice with my friends, but when I took my parents, they complained that the music was too loud and we had to shout at each other to be able to hear. Maybe turn down the music a bit so I can speak with my dinnermates if necessary.
They loved the food and service however. Strongly recommend to anyone who's feeling adventurous.
6/22/2013 4:00:00 PM
great meat selection and salad bar
I really liked the salad bar, even though I was trying to leave more space for meat I could not hold myself from going for refill. Meat is awesome, for any kind of meat lover... Spicy, sweet, medium rare... Anything you want
6/23/2013 4:00:00 PM
Best kept secret in town
Came to the cops cabana after finding that the hat
Had one right here closer to home then niagara. We sat on the patio
And it was a great night to sit outside. Our servers
We're amazing very nice and always attentive to our needs. Great price food
The food was always hot and full of flavor.
The only thing that I found was that the band was playing
Close to the patio door and we couldn't hear ourselves
Talk or the server name the meat. I think of try just kept the
Two farthest does and left the middle ones closed
It would have been easier to hear ourselves..
Awesome restaurant highly recommended

Great food - and not just the meat
Fun atmosphere, friendly staff and great food all around
6/30/2013 12:00:00 AM
Service was awesome. Server made sure all that we requested were catered for. Kept us updated on our request and constantly checked that if we needed anything. Kudos to staff!

Took someone there for a special
Took someone there for a special dinner date; guys will definitely be happy with the unlimited meat. It was delicious for the most part, but some things we could've done without (ex. plain sausage, chicken drumstick). Everything is pretty salty. Loved the parmesan filet, the pineapple, and the garlic steak. I wish the noise level was a little quieter as it was nearly impossible to hear each other. I wouldn't mind if there was loud, lively entertainment going on, but even though there was just a mellow band playing, we couldn't hear each other. Salad bar is a much needed addition to the meat but it's not amazing. Overall, it's great to experience and you should definitely try it if you like meat, but I wouldn't be a regular.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
It was our first time, and we really enjoyed it. Good service, great foods.
We're planning to come back again with more friends with us.
7/6/2013 4:00:00 PM
I celebrated my birthday at Copacabana and it was enjoyable from beginning to end! It was a delicious way to ring in another year, and is recommend this experience to anyone!
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
Came here with a group of 10. On the whole, a very enjoyable experience with a mix of seated and buffet service. Staff were friendly happy and great! If you want to eat a plethora of BBQ'd meat, you've come to the right place. We did have a vegetarian in our group but they eat seafood so got to enjoy the fish and shrimp offering. 2 hour seating limit BUT they ask you about what you would like if the guys with the skewers of meat don't come around enough or if you're looking for something in particular off their mega list of meats on skewers. There were a couple of things that were over seasoned but given the amount you got to choose from, you just tried something else. Great time had by all.
7/13/2013 12:00:00 AM
I love the ambiance of this
I love the ambiance of this restaurant. All the staff are friendly and warm, just like an old friend. The food was spectacular! Choices for everyone, no matter your taste. I can't remember the last time I ate this much and enjoyed myself.
7/14/2013 12:00:00 AM
Experience was good.
I had a friend come in from Montreal and said to her I would like to take her to dinner and suggested the restaurant.
She said they have one a little similar in Montreal but the Copacabana put that restaurant to shame.
7/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food and atmosphere
Food was fantastic and atmosphere was great. Guys and girls bringing the meat around were great too. Unfortunately, our server was not great. She took forever to get our bill, then when she brought it we waited over 20 mins for her to come and get my payment. Never refilled our water or asked us if we needed anything. Maybe she was having an off day.
7/24/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing succulent meat! Highly recommended for the meat lovers!!!
7/28/2013 12:00:00 AM
great cuts of meat!
The variety of cuts coupled with the small buffet bar (salads, breads, anti pesto,lasagna, fruit, rice etc) made for a great dining experience. Service was great and accommodating. Fried banana and roasted pineapple were divine.
it was expensive, so its nit something to go to all the time. But great for an occasion.
8/3/2013 12:00:00 AM
A carnivore's dream
There are plenty of great meatless options at the "Harvest Table", but CopaCabana is known best for its meat - and rightfully so. The huge variety of meat offered, cooked over flame, is a real treat. Multiple cuts and flavors of beef, pork, lamb, chicken, salmon, and more, all brought to your table and carved right on to your plate. Bliss! Don't miss the buttery-tender suckling pig, the cheddar-studded prime rib (seriously!), Parmesan-crusted filet, or the marinated flank steak. Or the fantastic corn bread.
8/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Very tasty food
Copacabana is one of the best place to have a dinner. the meat is just awesomely cooked and taste very very good.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Amazing meat experience
Not to be missed, variety of meats is excellent, save some room for the pineapple at the end.
8/11/2013 12:00:00 AM
Excellent first time experience
Celebrated a family birthday day with great experience, loved having all the meats come to the table. The salads and other hot dishes all well prepared too.
8/25/2013 12:00:00 AM
Great food, excellent restaurant
Great food, excellent restaurant and service. We go here very often and every time it's an enjoyable experience. Best brazilian steak house. The wait time is usually very long here which is the only problem so recommend going on weekdays when you can make reservations or earlier on weekends.

Meat Lovers Dream
If you like or crave meat, this is the spot to go to! Endless supply of delicious steaks, sausage, lamb, chicken etc along with a great salad/appetizer buffet to please any meat lover. A set price makes it convenient for big groups and special occasions. Totally worth it!
10/1/2013 12:00:00 AM
Fit for foodies!!
Me & my husband and our four children dined here last night for his birthday and all I can say is this place is amazing!! We had a lot to eat, there is many different options in terms of meats and sides to choose from. The service was attentive always bringing meat to you and asking is everything OK. Also the live music is nice and not too loud. We definitely would go back!!
10/10/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious food, don't fill up on the salad buffet, that's a rookie mistake ;)
The servers are very friendly, you can request your preferred meat or level of "doneness", and they will be happy to accomodate..
I go there almost every 1-2 months.
10/15/2013 12:00:00 AM
Always pleasant to have dinner here
Food and service was great as usual, I make it a goal to have dinner here every few months to have my meat binge.

The overall experience was
The overall experience was great except for the hostess who was unfriendly and insisted that I stand away from the hostess podium and wait, 'over there', as I was 10 minutes early. It left a negative feeling with me!
She is the first impression of the restaurant and definitely needs to be trained so that she receives guests in an
10/27/2013 12:00:00 AM
Delicious meal. Went on a Tuesday night and there weren't too many people so the servers gave us a little extra care. Was disappointed though with our table server. She didn't ask to change our plate until the end of the meal and was pretty slow in general. Also, the four dollars for a cup of tea at the end was a little annoying but delicious food and great service. Would go again.

Good Times @ Copacabana !
This was our first time to the restaurant & it was great ! The food was delicious & plentiful. The only negative feedback is regarding the service from our waitress - it took forever to get our drinks (to the point that we ended up going up to the bar to get them ourselves !) & our bill taking almost 1/2 an hour to receive/pay - pretty brutal ! That being said, all the carvers (guys who bring around the meat) were super polite, professional, friendly & helpful.
11/18/2013 4:00:00 PM
Great mix of food and a great way to sample so many different types of meats.
My only negatives were that I did make a request when booking online and it wasn't even acknowledged. Also I have heard they have great entertainment each day of the week and they had nothing when we went. Maybe next time I'll try call in next time to find out what days they actually have a band and dancers.
My ranking on service was primarily due to the lack of response and clarity on the entertainment part, the servers were great.
