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!

If it wasn't for our server who was pushing us out the door, the whole experience would have been perfect. We were there for about an hour and 20 minutes when our server started throwing hints that our time was up. Maybe this complaint should be geared towards management as she was probably doing what was asked of her.
Our reservation was good for 2hrs. We eventually left after another 20 minutes, when our plates were taken away and the bill was dropped off.
The food was amazing and the gentlemen coming around with the food were really great. Still, I wouldn't recommend this place to a friend. I'd recommend Brasa instead as our experiences there has always been pleasant.

Not worth the price. Some meat wasn't even good. They don't come around your table that often and there is 2 hours time limit. Just go any regular steak house.

Went to Copacabana for our anniversary and it was great... bbq was top, I was even able to request something I wanted that I hadn't had the chance to try. Sides are good too but don't fill up because you'll regret not having room for all the meat!

Was extremely disappointed. I spent around $170 for one glass of wine and two meals and tip. The service was horrible as we were waiting for someone to bring us meat for 30 mins. Once they did it was very slow and took so long. The meat did not taste as good as it usually does. I kept asking for Parmesan steak and no one was bringing it out. I waited 30 mins for our server to bring our bill so I ended up getting up to pay. So upset at amount of money I spent $$$ it was my boyfriends birthday and we were very dissatisfied

Ive been to 3 other local Copacabanas and several Brazilian steak houses in other countries and this one was by far the least memorable. The filet mignon was super salty and most of the servers were pleasant. I like Copacabana overall so I will return, but locally I will stick with the Vaughan location no matter when the next reservation is available.

Thank you.

It was my mothers 70th birthday. The servers wanted to ask my mother, who is really self conscious about her age for her ID to prove she was 70 and it was her birthday. I found it a bit inappropriate and asked them not too. I said I could show them her Facebook, birthday invitation... anything else and they refused to give her the birthday special.

To be honest I didn’t even know there was a birthday special until they mentioned it.

I don’t eat a lot of meat but it was fun to try something different. I was satisfied, many others at the table barely ate anything.

Probably wouldn’t go back again.

The selection at the buffet was very limited. I came to the restaurant for my birthday expecting to have an enjoyable meal but did not. I also wasnt a fan of the meats as they all had too much fat content...too expensive for what we ate.

I had the time time Mother’s day weekend at Copacabana! Unfortunately I didn’t get to see the Brazilian dancers because I went early but I actually preferred the time I went. It wasn’t too busy but when we were leaving I could tell it was going to get busy. It was great that we got to have delicious all you can eat sides. If you’re a vegetarian like myself there’s still so much for you to enjoy. The ambiance was fantastic and our waitress was lovely and informative as well. It was my self time but I will certainly be back.
Make sure you have $$ it’s a little expensive but worth it.

The food was good.
The servers (with the meat) didn't have a proper plan to serve all the tables. It seemed they'd go to tables randomly. We had to ask multiple times for certain items, although our blue cards were on the table. Servers would not care if the card was blue, they'd pass by regardless. That was a big disappointment.
The restaurant was way too noisy. My husband and I had to shout to here each other.

It was my birthday. It tried calling several times to let them know I was going to be about 15 minutes because of all construction we were driving through. Nobody at the restaurant picked up. When my boyfriend and I arrived, they took some time to seat us. I was a little annoyed due to the fact I had called so many times but I left it alone. When we were seated it was at a wobbly table. We asked to be seated somewhere else. The servers coming around with the meat barely came over to us. Max 4 times. Not worth all of the money if we barely knew what the food tasted like.

I loved everything. The Chefs where amazing, the servers were super nice and the food, oh god the food....

The only thing that really bothered me was the ragatanga on the background for the whole 2 hours I was there. It is really enervating. Maybe change it up a bit.

Thanks for everything.

Had a great time for my husband’s birthday. A bit pricey but if you go on your birthday your meal is free (if at least 4 adults in the party) so it makes it more affordable. All meats and seafood were great. Service was friendly and fast. Only complaint is that restaurant was loud. Was heard to carry on a conversation with others at the table.

For the amount of food that my husband and I eat, it isn’t worth the price.
