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 in regards to temper

The service is simply degrading from one visit to another. Too bad. We had to wait literally over an hour to get the pineapple we specifically asked for as well as some of the meats. Over servers would simply skip out table. Not worth the money anymore

My brother and I took our mom here for her birthday. We got a reservation on a Friday evening for 7pm. It was busy, but still roomy to go get your salads and finger foods. They had some dancers come out at 8:30pm. We left shortly after 9pm and it was PACKED inside. The lines for the finger food bars were much pretty long & crowded. So definitely the earlier you go, the better.

The meat carvers come around & ask you if you’d like to try what they’ve brought. The meats are all cooked at MEDIUM RARE!!! My mom got a latte which she enjoyed. My brother and I got dessert. I got the brigadeiro (Brazilian chocolate balls), which came with 3. My brother got a chocolate lava cake. I believe it was $8 or $9 and very disappointing on the size for that price.. it was only 2-3 bites, but very delicious. And a small scoop of vanilla ice cream on the dessert board. They brought it out with a sparkler since they knew it was my moms birthday.

That being said, depending on the day you go, and if you’re going to eat meat or not, the pricing is different. For the 3 of us on a Friday, all eating meat, add 3 sodas, 1 latte & 2 desserts the bill came to $221, we left a $20 tip so $241 in total.

Yes it is pricey, but it was just for a special occasion.

We all said we would definitely go back!

Food was pretty good. Don't go early, as we were leaving better options were coming out! They seemed to stop coming to our table for a while, and when asked what we would request, they left and the item never came.

I have been to copacabana steak house numerous times. This time was my first at the Vaughn location. This was also the best experience I had. The staff went out of their way to make sure me and my family were looked after. From the server who we never had to ask to bring drinks, she’d always come around with a refill. To the guys bringing the steaks that even asked what we would like to try and everything we asked for came in a timely manner. We loved our experience. Thank you to everyone who made it memorable. We will definitely be back to celebrate occasions! 5/5 service and experience!

We very much enjoyed our dinner, however it was mentioned in the booking, and my spouse mentioned to our server on more than one occasion that it was my birthday. We waited for the usual birthday cake, and nothing. We inquired and our server said she forgot, no offer to pack it up to go home, or anything. Such an afterthought. Why bother offering that service, if the staff could care less? Not to mention that we waited a good 20-25 mins for a second round of drinks, and mine was wrong. Pretty disappointed in the level of customer care this time around.

The food was great, music and ambiance was good, but we made a booking 2 weeks before for 4 pax and still received a very small booth which was uncomfortable. Also the Copas downtown served better varieties of meat I.e they served shrimps too, that wasn't available at the Vaughan venue. The downtown venue also had more variation of deserts.
Overall- it was just okay

There were flies flying around the table and perching on the food. The customer service was good but the meat were not properly done. There were lots of blood on the meat which is inedible.

We were there with another couple and we had a very enjoyable evening. Food was very tasty. Wait staff very attentive. The entertainment was ok but not nearly as exciting or colorful as one of your other locations. Overall a great night.

Food was excellent but after 40 minutes they never came back to our table. Waitress did not come to refill water or clear plates. We had to keep asking for water and a certain meat we requested right when we sat down we didn’t get until we asked 2 more times and waited 30 minutes. The meat we did get in the first 40 minutes was great. Service is usually better. Was very disappointed with this experience.

I had a reservation thinking the holiday Monday would include the dancers and shrimp. Servers came by 3 times to ask what we were waiting for, finally the 3rd one said we only have shrimp on weekends. We waited 40 minutes for pineapple after several servers asked what we were waiting for. We saw it go by several times but couldn’t flag it down as we were in the back corner with ambiance being staring at a brick wall. Steak was too under cooked for my husband whose birthday we were celebrating. Overall I enjoyed it but for the price would not go back.

The service staff for my table was probably too busy training the new one, our table service was not optimal. We have to ask others for water and even ask different ones to check out twice.

I've been to the one on Adelaide in Toronto. I would say the food is comparable to that location. The service however was better. All the staff and servers were very friendly. I would highly recommend this place.

I do not know where to begin, first and for most the FOOD was amazing the variety of meats that cone to the table done to perfection. The seasoning and flavor of the meats simply melt in your mouth. The servers and our waitress were incredible, you never had to flag her down for a glass of water she continues to fill our glasses and asked us throughout the evening dinner how were things and if there was anything we needed. The salad bar was amazing way beyond your expectations with a vast variety of different things to choose from, which made it hard and there was so much to choose from. I am so glad we went and will definitely be going back, I can't stop telling everyone I know about this restaurant it is so amazing. The price of the meal is the best part as you definitely get allot of bang for your buck here.

Only downside was when my husband and I both had a cocktail at the bar while we were waiting to be seated, and the Price of the 2 cocktail came out to $35.00 and change which I found to be way overpriced I found that part to be a tad ridiculous. So I will not be doing that again. Otherwise the evening was lovely and the restaurant staff were outstanding and the restaurant is such a beautiful environment to be in.

Hope to see you all again soon.
Cheers

I would like to see male dancers as well. We had dinner at the cops cabana before and they had female and male dancers.
I would love to see both at every location.

Our server did not pay attention to us at all, I had an empty glass at the table and I was waiting to buy another drink and the server did not come over for the majority of the evening. We received 3 rounds of meat that was so salty I felt sick. Also, we did not receive all the meat that is on the menu.

This is the second time I am visiting the place, loved it the first time I went with friends and decided to take my family there, I couldn't believe my 20 months old daughter would be charged $30 for sitting there and looking pretty.

Service was TERRIBLE! We came to celebrate a b-day and were seated at two separate booths simply facing each other - our party felt completely separated! On top of that, the noise level was high, and the heat was unbearable They took an 18% gratuity which was totally undeserved. Horrible customer service, didn’t even try to make it up to us with the stupid seating arrangement. Won’t come back! This place is NOT for large parties.

In Copacabana, waiters come around with various kinds of barbecued meat on sticks, serving you as much as you want within a two-hour period. (There's also a buffet, but it's best to ignore that, for the most part). They also have Samba dancers. While the experience was just as I'd been told it would be, I could not enjoy it quite as much as I hoped because the meat was WAY over-salted. The waiters also didn't come around often enough, so there was some waiting for waiters. Not worth the $55 price tag, would not recommend. Use less salt, have more variety in the meats, and come around the tables more often, and the experience would be much better.

(Also, I was a bit annoyed that a simple Higgins & Burke teabag with some hot water cost $3.65. I get that it isn't a big deal compared to the price of the meal itself, but come on. At that price, at least brew some loose-leaf.)
