About Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse - Eglinton (Midtown)

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!

The meats were delicious and the carvers were very friendly. The server couldn't care less to be there and the mixed drinks were obviously watered down. The "buffet" was sad and it was also obvious that the food had been sitting there for awhile even though dinner service had just started; I assume it was leftovers from their lunch service. The "hot" food was cold and not edible.

Love the service, seated quickly. Chairs and decor slightly rundown but the food and service made up for it! The comfort foods in buffet could have more variance in textures (mashed potatoes, mashed sweet potatoes, lasagna, mac and cheese). And Caesar salad could have been a bit fresher tastier. Service was off the charts !

The hostess was rude and we only got tiny pieces of meat. The server was ok and got my mom a complimentary dessert but we were turned off from the moment we walked in because of the hostess

Table was not ready at our reservation time. We were a group of 10 people, with 5 people sitting against a wall, it was difficult for servers to serve food for people sitting against the wall. We were seated at the back of restaurant could not see the live band or dancers. We requested salmon and pineapple at the very beginning of our meal, we had to request it several times before it was finally delivered near the end of our meal.

This is our sixth time in this Copacabana location. We have a tradition to celebrate birthdays: my friend and me. Last time we were served by Charlie, who was exceptional in his service and very professional. This time we unmistakably recognized him again , the service this guy provides is beyond five stars, he makes you feel truly valued and special. I was sure to inform the restaurant manager about this and I sure hope it will positively affect him financially. We will continue our tradition and will be happy to get this top notch service again. Thank you!

Aside from the food the experience was absolutely horrible. The service especially worse than poor. I’m not sure if there’s new management, but I’ve been to this location many times and I’ve never had such a horrendous experience. Not only did we get sat 30 minutes late, but we rushed out of our seats at around 8:00pm. I understand that there might possibly a time limit to seating considering how busy the place is; however, management and front house staff should be aware of how long the customer has been seated there. We didn’t get the full experience we would like. Very, very disappointed. Will not return.

PS service would be zero but I had to put one. Not one.

Our first time there in 5 years and it hasn’t changed. The choices of meat are to die for. They come around often too! The salad bar has great choices from breads to salads. Their creamy pasta salad was perfectly rich, not too salty. The service was great and family friendly.

This is my favourite restaurant. It's a bit expensive, but for the quality and variety of steaks and other foods, it's totally worth it. You definitely have to go when you're hungry. So good!

Don't go to this location.
To many big groups, leaving no food for small tables.
The meat was over cooked as they probably wanted to cook it faster....
Not enough meat rotating.
Entertainment was enjoyable. (Weekends only).
Go to Adelaide instead.

I have been wanting to come here for a year and finally got to get some time with my husband to come for dinner on his birthday.

I tried calling several times before because the website says free parking but did not give instructions for how to get free parking. No one answers the phone and it was a Wednesday everning.

I ended up paying for parking because the parking is a private lot, not one that belongs to the restaurant and it wasn't until we got to the restaurant that there is a book sitting there for you to write your license plate number on so you don't get ticketed for not paying. They also refused to reimburse me for parking.

The restaurant is very hard to move around. There are no real isles you just movr between people's tables.

The salad bar was next to an empty kitchen and poorly organized. There is no dessert bar.

The servers never asked to fill our water, and when we asked them for a refill of our softdrinks they poured it in the same cup without Ice. The least I expect for a restaurant with a minimum of $50/person fare is they give you a new clean cup.

Only one of the servers was savy about the types of meats they were serving in detail so we could know what we were eating.

They did bring my husband a dessert on the house in the end. It was a few berries, some very very sweet (toothe achey) mango custard and a mini chocolate ball and a mini coconut ball.

We were beyond disappointed.

we expected the vibe to stay the same, but because the only open time was 10:30 by 11 pm it was getting quieter and no more shows. even serving food got slower and started asking us for preference we wanted to just keep trying everything new since its our first time.

I truly enjoy Copacabana! The service is fantastic! Very friendly staff! The food is outstanding. A nice salad bar, and hot table area is very good if you like the variety. I come for the meat :) Simply outstanding! The pineapple and bananas are awesome! Can't say enough about the variety of mouth watering selections of meat. Chicken, beef and the salmon! The value you receive for such a great experience is incredible!
