Steakhouse
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!

This is a restaurant I frequent and the experience can be hit or miss with the consistency of service. This evening was a great one!

Service was slow in the beginning and our chimichurri never arrived. Pineapple grilled to perfection, cheese balls freshly baked and moist, most of the meats were pretty decent although the sirloin was over-salted and the filet mignon was a bit dry.

A great place if you're a meat lover. Just save room for your favorite cuts. Wait staff are great -- although the women at the front desk always act like I've got dog poo on my shoe or something. Salads and sides are good, too, and the tropical cocktails are great. It's expensive, so concentrate on eating steak and not chomping up delicious rolls. It can get pretty loud and crazy in here, so we prefer to go not on Friday or Saturday -- but if you like a show and loud, go then! Weirdest bathrooms ever, sinks inside the stalls and no light. But otherwise, fab!

Greeters aren't friendly and welcoming. The guys serving the meat looked like they want to kill someone. Not one of them cracked a smile. They made you feel like you were bothering them when you wanted served. Group of 6 girls waited 30 mins before the first piece of meat even came. Waited almost another 20 for the next. Had to complain to have the meat guys over more frequently, then had to request shrimp and chicken towards the end as none even came near our table all night. Had to ask for pineapple as well. Considering they push you out towards the end of your "2 hour dining limit", with the lady walking around with the debit machine, you'd think they would be on top of the meat service. Very small cuts at a time and bad wait times until they return. It was only after we complained, the service picked up.

Our server was GREAT! Can't remember her name but she was a tall, thin, dark skin girl with long hair. Very friendly and attentive!! This was Saturday March 16 after 8pm.

Would recommend other locations but not this one. Booked a reservation for 730pm almost 2 weeks in advance and we arrived just before 730 and didnt get a table until 8pm. Lots of people walked in after us and still got seated before us.

Spent a lovely night at Copacabana celebrating my bf. I had asked for special instructions (write something on his dessert) and they obliged. Very nice and clean.
They could do with more food rotations so that everyone gets a variety but overall it was a lovely experience and the food was superb!

We had a great time on Friday. My only complaint was that we had requested a couple of food options that we had not been offered to us yes. We had requested this to our main server, as well as the gentlemen serving the meat at the tables. After roughly 45 minutes, we were asked if there was anything else we wanted before we leave, and we told them we were still waiting on a couple things.

Other than that, we were happy with the food quality, and the service otherwise.

We usually go to Coppacabana mid-town. We found the salad bar not as substantive here and the waitress table service not as attentive. The “meat” servers were excellent. Overall it was still very good, but back to Yonge & Eglinton for us next time.

Amazing place. Great food and ambiance.
My only major complain is about the service. I’ve noticed that the amount and variety of meats/sides depends in where is your table.
In this particular night, we have between 10-15 min lapses without a single server. This happened at least 3 times. And when I made a comment about it to my server(Stephan, I think) He replied in very rude manner, “ That’s why I’m here, asking what do you want” So, it was a bug disappointment since the restaurant is mist of the times great.

It was not my first time, but it was for my sister and daughter...I thought that the meat took longer than before, but all good. My daughter left her back pack there and I got a phone call and they kept it for her until the next day, totally appreciate the great service!

Arrived at my reservation a few minutes earlier, waited almost 20 minutes to be seated despite having a reservation. The restaurant was extremely packed and full, the next table over was fairly close to the point it was uncomfortable. The servers usually go to both sides of the table to offer all guest food, but they kept staying on just one side and making guests to reach over people to get the food. Been here a few times prior, will not be returning.

This location outshines Eglinton by far. Still not Fogo De Chao but getting there. Not only did we not have to request cheese buns, they were brought around/offered 3 times. The meats at both locations are of course excellent.

After a few good experiences at this Copacabana, we booked for our anniversary and had honestly a pretty bad experience. It was a later reservation, but after calling I confirmed that all reservations would have a two hour eating window, and that our proposed time was not even the latest one available. We were seated upstairs which we had not experienced before, and despite it being extremely busy, we barely saw any servers with the grilled items circulating. After about a half hour, the place emptied out quite a bit and then we had about a 15 minute window of all items being brought within minutes of each other. We eventually needed to decline more food to get through our first round, and after being there for less than an hour, we were told it was last call for all grilled items. So much for two hours. In between all of this, we had pretty lackluster service and our dirty plates were left on the table quite a long time. Our bill came to over $200 and we only had one drink each and split a dessert. This is a reasonable price for a great meal and experience, which we absolutely did not have here.

Food and service were sub-par at best. Employees looked uninterested in providing a good service. Waitress never asked about allergies on the table. One of the gaucho dropped a cut piece on the table and didn't even attempt to do anything about it.

I’ve been to this location before . I was extremely disappointed and will never return . I brought with me 5 people from New York and we were all extremely disappointed. In one hour we only got meat 3 times and it was the same prime rib . Been here before and never experienced this bad horrible service . Either you don’t have enough meat going around or you need to hire more staff. Not worth my money to eat a scrap of meat and no selection

We went to celebrate a birthday and the man who's birthday it was loved it. We got front row seats to the dancing girls. We brought our kids though, aged 11 (boy) and 9 (girl). Our son did not like the dancing I think he was too young for it he didn't really want to look felt as though they were dancing inappropriately for a family crowd.

Asked for small plates for the meat as soon as we got there . None were provided until asking for the fifth time . The red and blue system doesn’t work, kept getting bombarded and our conversation kept getting interrupted wirh my girlfriend every other second. Didn’t you guys come up with the system? Use it. Respect it. It feels like a fast food atmosphere , getting attacked by different servers every minute .

Other than that, the food is good.
