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!

We liked the restaurant but didn’t feel the buffet food was great, and the servers didn’t engage with us much. It wasn’t worth what they charged us, drinks were sub par and too expensive. I actually had a massive headache after, which I’ve NEVER had after a meal. It was nice to try the various meats and the quality of the meat and salmon was good. Not sure if they use grass feed meat which would have been great to know. We didn’t get a good understanding of the food before eating

Been several times. Good food. Very good service. The price is what you might expect for a place on the lower side of high-end. The dining area is a small and open space, so large groups can get noisy and hinder 1 on 1 conversations. The food is really good, but its not amazing. The meat seasoning heavily relies on salt. I get it, salt tastes good, but good quality meat shouldnt rely so heavily on salt for flavour. Where the side dishes don't go heavy on salt, they tend to rely a bit more on fat. What you would expect for the price point.

It is unfortunate that the time limited for dinner is 2 hours especially for all you can eat buffet. My friends were expecting to spend at least 3 hours with coffee and dessert.

Kept asking for more well done meat and i get medium rare to raw cuts. Cheese balls and pineapple came late and other tables were better served. Great place but not the best experience for a similar restaurant.

The food and everything about the place was great. However they took a very long time to bring you your food. I understand they had a lot of customers to handle that night, but for the price they charge they should hire a few more waiters. Other than that this is a good place.

Front door hostesses need to be more welcoming and friendly. There were crickets chirping in the awkward silence. The meat took too long to come to our table. It was frustrating to see good meat pass by and not come to your table we should not have to request or keep requesting. Dessert menu not offered had to request for them to send out bananas asked for dessert menu never came so we just ate the bananas and ignored the fact desert menu never came by then we were full and was just ready to go. We have experienced Brazilian restaurants in the United States similar to this one here in Canada however their Gauchos are much faster bringing meat and more plentiful with servings. I will say that the meat that we did eat was excellent. The ambience was very loud and chaotic it was hard to relax and enjoy our meal by the end we were just ready to go.

Food was delicious, atmosphere was nice, elegant. You would think because the meat portions they give you are small you won't be satisfied but they come around often and even ask if you want to make a request. Went for a birthday and we were not let down!

This use to be my favorite restaurant... but not anymore. They do not come around with any meat/fish unless you beg them to over 10 times and even then it’s the same 2 or 3 selections. Service was completely trash. Rushed us out by giving us the bills without even asking. I will NEVER return.

Food was great however the waitress we got rarely came to see how we were doing. We saw other servers who went to see how their tables were doing very often; meanwhile ours didn’t. We didn’t know how the process worked and sat for about 10 minutes until we could see that people were getting plates from the buffet so there we went. After about 10 minutes of eating we had ordered a bottle of wine as our waitress finally arrived, half way through our meal still had not received the bottle. We decided to cancel our bottle with a different waiter who was close by then a couple of minutes later our bottle came and our waitress said it took long because she had to get it from the basement.. clearly we were forgotten as she didn’t even care to let us know even if this was the case. After this she came once to change our plates then to give us our bills. For the price of the restaurant I was expecting much better service. Great food just don’t come on a weekend unless you want to be forgotten by your waitress. To be fair the other waiters/waitress we could see interacting with their tables seemed to be friendly! The servers going around with the meat were also nice. May have been a one time issue but it’s one I won’t forget.

There should be a dress code for women. The table next to ours was occupied by women who were surly planning to go to a club afterwards. Some of them were really obese and wearing skimpy clothing showing all the rolls of flesh hanging out.... gross. We all lost appetite....

The food was great and restuarant atmosphere was also awesome. The only bad thing was service. While we were waiting for people to serve bbq meats they barely came to our table (only one person constantly came to serve). Then the server said because we kept rejecting food, they didn't come - which wasn't true. They never came to ask

Today I went in this restaurant with my fiancé. They put us in one table between two big tables with 10 people beside us that were speaking so loud that I even couldn’t hear my thoughts. In our table came only one type of meat and pineapple. No other meats, no chicken, no shrimp, no other stuffs. Looked like that the meat carvers were going 50 tables and in the end to our table. Since we arrive we really wanna eat bread of cheese. The guy with this walked many times near our table but didn’t bring to us. When I got tired to wait, I went downstairs to take it by myself, I waited it in front of the bakery for 15 minutes for after that the woman says: “I can’t give it to you because the bread of cheese comes to table”. I gave up, thrown away $ 150 and went home. It was the worst Birthday’s dinner that I ever had. I don’t recommend this restaurant for anyone.

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.
