Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse - Adelaide (Downtown)
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!
Long delays in the meats to come around. Most of the time we had to request for the servers to come around and us. I don’t know what was going on, but we would wait 20-25 minutes between someone coming around with meat. And when they did, it was just little slivers. Almost like shavings. The managers walked around to tables, refilling water glasses, asking how things were, but no one came around to us. The table to the right and left us got a pretty royal treatment, while our waitress checked on us twice, in 2 hours. I’m not exaggerating when I tell you the meat came to the table to our right, skipped us and went straight to the table to our left...while I’m sitting with an empty plate.
We went for meat and were hardly served any.
Packed restaurant with not enough food going around.
We had this experience last time but thought to give it another try.
We're done now... $60 / person for side dishes. Never again!!
The salad and sides are fantastic. The meat was good for the most part. Usually too raw though. The service was not good. Our table kept getting skipped by the servers so the service for food was very slow
Had a very bad experience with respect to quality of service. Long waits for food, lack of “check-ins” by staff compared to tables next to us, complained to manager who was apathetic. Quality of food was good but lack of service is unforgivable.
I went for my girlfriend's birthday. Everything was going well. However, after 45 minutes our table was getting skipped for no apparent reasons. Despite our cards clearly showing we were not done.
I had to request to the waitress to tell the guys to not skip our table but buy then it was too late, my girlfriend was not happy.
My friend wanted to experience Brazilian churrasco (BBQ)for the first time since in his country he never had the chance to, so we decided to come here to try some.
At first the place was a little small- especially for a table of two, and we had an appointment for 9:30pm so we’d usually think that some foods were gonna be either a little drier than usual or not as freshly cooked.
I also mostly assumed that some of the staff would not be Brazilian, but that was just from the front desk.
Boy I was wrong.
The moment we were given chicken as a start, and then pão de queijo, the taste was more than astounding. For me it was a taste of nostalgia of my traditional Brazilian family meals, and for my friend it was a taste that was out of this world.
So every meat we had, it was either getting better, or the taste of heaven just was everlasting. By then we didn’t get picanha, yet. Once we did, i was sure enough that it was going to taste great.
Again, I was wrong. The picanha there made me tear up a little, it was just like the ones I would taste from the churrasco that I would attend at family parties in Brazil. Nothing made it just as nostalgic as the marvellous job the chefs have made the meats. My friend was also tearing up because he has never tried food so excellent in his life.
We also enjoyed the Brazilian sangria, because as a Brazilian, you can never say no to Guaraná. It tasted very refreshing to the meats we ate along with, so it sat very well in my stomach.
I think this restaurant shared a great memory for the both of us. For my friend, he wants to come back to Canada (he is from Japan) someday just to taste the excellent meats again.
It was really good experience for someone whose a newbie with Brazilian steak.
Beautiful space with amazing food. Would’ve loved to see more fish offered, but the variety of veggies offered makes up for it.
Servers are very accommodating and not too pushy. Would revisit for an event.
Had much better service on our last visit so I’d go back, but had this been a first time I likely wouldn’t return
Seated half an hour late
Half the table got forgotten when drinks were being ordered
We were bombarded with food in the beginning but basically forgotten about for the last hour of our stay
A lot of the meat was undercooked, which was fine when it was plentiful but sad when it was sparse
Entertainment was amazeballs !!
Absolutely love the dancers and silk show, ‘‘twas the highlight of the night !
The roasted pineapple, deep fried banana and cornbread are worth the cost alone ;)
Reserved a table before hand for my birthday. 2 people. Ended up getting the table right in the right of a massive tv. Not intimate at all. Very loud with kids.
We loved the food and drinks.
We didn't like the 2-hour seating period. Is understandable, however, we would've liked staying a bit longer
Great food and amazing service. The servers are on the ball and friendly
They kept their word and called me when an earlier time opened up for my booking. Appreciate it!
At first, staff seemed disorganized. Staff present food at your table. Service was inconsistent. Always seem to be getting the same food, as the evening went on it did get better with more options. Disappointed!!!!
Overall disappointed, not too excited to return.
Everything was fantastic. Never felt rushed. Always had food on our plates
Will be back
everything was great but air conditioning just a little to high for our comfort
Good quality food, but service a little slow (not a constant flow of meat coming around). We had repeat meats frequently, but first time this happened out of my many visits.
I wasn’t very happy with the service provided.
I was desapointed with the overhaul experience. The buffet was very minimal , I had to asked for some chicken otherwise, I would of eat only beef. But the meat was delicious. I had the feeling to eat in a cafeteria. I went twice to the other location in Niagara Falls and I was expecting the same.
Exellent food and service. I will recommend it to all my friends
No more meat coming after 45mins. We ask 2 kind of steaks, finally got those one hour later.
Always an amazing experience at Copa!! Outstanding everything
Great time, great staff amazing entertainment!!
Food!? Omg! Gggrreat!!
I was there for my 12th Anniversary. I mentioned to the lady at front is there anything special you guys can do to make our celebration even better, she responded with a rude face NO. The guys who were bringing the meat over they had no smile on their faces. I am a Food & Beverage manager I manage 2 restaurants and 48 workers. Every worker who are the face of the restaurant and they deal with customers should have a smile on their faces and be more approachable
I would love to come there again, but you guys should have some kind of special arrangement for those who comes for a special occasions.
We had a fabulous night! Our reservation was for 7, and to our surprise, it was perfect timing for the dancers to come out (we had no idea, as this was our first time there) great experience!!
Had a wonderful time there on my birthday, but the hostess were you tell your reservations too couldn't find my reservation even though my parents have already been seated for dinner and she was very rude saying we never had a reservation booked, i kept telling her that my parents we already there under my reservation but i guess she just didn't understand..
Amazing experience, the food was incredible! Will be back for sure!!
My husband's birthday
Great food , great service
Amazing!!!! The food was delicious and the service was great.
Best Copa location yet food wise. Didnt have seafood at the salad bar but the steaks, lamb, pineapple & grilled shrimp we awesome.
not my cup of tea. friend wanted to go for his birthday. I"m a chef myself, this place NEVER applealed to me for a host of reasons. Bigger issue is that I received an email from you guys, Opentable the next morning asking me why we didn't show up for our reservation with a letter explaining courtesy as a diner and cancelling if need be. I'll be honest, I was offended by this. Copacabana "hostess" was a bimbo and didn't properly check us in. Not my fault, her fault. I want extra dining points in compensation for Copacabana's error. Their fault, not mine. I won't be returning there, ever. Your feedback is requested by me.
There wasn't a good variety of meats and the servers passed by our table quite a bit
The 3 floors was a pain...getting salad on the 2nd floor up and down. Guess for a specific crowd it is feasible. I had heard different days, is a different ambiance in there. We went on a long weekend, Sunday night. Great location in T.O. ..Prices for myself anyhow are a little steep but you ARE able to taste different types of meat. While waiting for the actual main courses...on the spigots...you pick on the salad...then drink. Next thing you know? How much steak do you really consume. Good for a first timers and the experience. To return? Not for me. the Service was good...the crew are polite, professional and wonderful to chat with. A+ for them.
It was the last night of our holiday and we enjoyed a fabulous meal. We ate so much we nearly rolled out of the restaurant! The quality of the food was excellent. Huge amount of choice both of the meats being served at the table and on the buffet. Really unusual and interesting flavours, fresh and delicious ingredients. Would highly recommend and would love to return.
I would recommend a friend to this place as the food is amazing! However, I would let them know that the service isn't always the greatest, as in it's hit or miss. Sometimes when I have gone, they have been great, whereas othertimes, the service has been lacking and waited 45 minutes just to pay my bill. Servers were actively avoiding my table.
A must have for meat lovers. All you can ear for a reasonable price.
Service was poor. Same type of meat came around. Our waitress was no where to be found. The shrimp came out and passed by our table several times. Would not come back to this location.
The food was very good, the choices of meat was excellent and the buffet great choices too. Just take your time to enjoy all the different meat. However, it would be good to rotate the kind of meat you serve for variety. We had mostly beef, a little of chicken and once fish. Overall my husband and i loved it and would recommend.
