About Copacabana Brazilian Steakhouse - Adelaide (Downtown)
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 went as a family for my daughter's birthday. While the food was very good, the service was haphazard/lacking. At this price I would expect service to match the food.
Not sure if it's because the place was full, but the service was abysmal.
We waited 20 mins to get water & then only because I asked. No one explained up front that we should go downstairs for the salads, etc. I had to get an extra napkin myself from another table.
We had told the staff that it was for my daughter's birthday & also included on the reservation & no acknowledgement.
Honestly, I've gotten better service at local diners. Not the kind of experience that one would be looking to repeat.

Good atmosphere however service was rushed. Two levels of seating despite only 1 buffet on the main floor. Same selections were circling most of time and we had to ask to receive the variety of seafood, chicken and desserts. Not a good choice for vegetarian/ vegan options.

The dancing was entertaining but the set up could have been better. The buffet was nothing special it was like cruise ship food. The meat and pineapple was great. The value was brutal! The good and drink markup was ridiculously overpriced. The service was outstanding. Hostesses were wonderful.

I visited the branch before , it was great and service was amazing .But on my next visit, Because we requested well done meat, the service was very slow and less variety of meat was served for us. the friends with us were not very happy.

You had no salmon or shrimp the night we went so the 2 vegetarians in our party were disappointed. On the positive side the salads were excellent and the penne too. Also your staff handled the situation very well and gave us free desserts so we all left happy. We would definitely come again and take you at your word that this does not happen often .. we feel confident we will be able to get salmon and shrimp next time.

My husband and I visited Copacabana while in Toronto for our anniversary. At one point in the night, we both looked at each other and agreed that it was one of the most unique restaurants we'd ever been to with some of the best food we'd ever had. It is such an experience! If you're in Toronto, you must try this restaurant. We went on a Sunday night, but I wish we had gone on a Friday/Saturday night when they have live music, Brazilian dancing and an aerialist. I can't imagine the experience being any better though... the food was spectacular, the staff were so friendly and knowledgeable, and the wine pairing was fantastic. Just an all-round gem! I wish they had one in Alberta!

In the same week, we came twice because the first experience was sensational. The second experience was atrocious. Due to change of plans, we needed a seat for a third person. I was unable to reach a hostess until the fifth time I called. She was very rude and said that they were fully booked but she cannot do anything. We arrived to no hostess, no welcome (no wonder no one was not answering the calls). But we were seated after 5 minutes of waiting and the restaurant was half empty. You are fully booked????!!!!! The room did not fill up through the 1.5 hours we were there. The meal was consistent with the first we had earlier in the week until this short waitress with a bun and jean shorts got into the picture. I pay $48 to be served by someone in jean shorts???!!! She served cheese bread and corn bread. I asked for more corn bread. She asked how many? I said one. Then after I tell her that she walks and serves corn bread to the table RIGHT beside us party of 12 or more. I am NOT BLIND. There is no more corn bread after that. I ask a male server, a female server, another male server and the manager. He was rude as well and just said there is a batch every 25 minutes. No apology or empathy of trying to understand why the customer is angry. So when guests make requests, they are not addressed. The same thing happened with the Shrimp. I probably asked 5 people about the Shrimp and then had to wait onwards of 20 minutes until the same male server carving meat realized the situation. We opted for the bill because we were tired of waiting. The waitress smiles at you and hands you back the Moneris after she inputs a 20% tip for you for horrible service you have received today. Of course I changed it back to what you deserve. This is very unacceptable service for customers who want to spend the money to eat at your restaurant. Your food is amazing and one of the better restaurants in Toronto. However, the service really needs work. Jean shorts really?

The servers providing the food who were good were greatly exceeded by the poor service of 60% of the servers, including who I assume was their supervisor. The greeter when we came in needs to find a personality. And the girl assigned to our table was nice, but has no idea and frankly poor manners.

The food was delicious and our server was friendly enough. However, we noticed that our server was quite attentive to the business group seated next to us but seemed too busy to ensure that we were provided with water and clean plates. It felt as if we were getting a different level of service despite paying the same amount as other customers. I would not eat at this location again.

I have been to Copacabana a couple of times prior, once at the Adelaide location and another time at the Niagara Falls location. I absolutely love Copacabana, as I love the different types of meat that they have and crave their grilled pineapple. I find that the Copacabana Adelaide location has a great buffet selection and the ambiance is good. I find that the servers with the meat are okay. Some of them are very social and really try to make the experience great, while others are just rushing in and out of tables, which is understandable as it is busy and they need to get to all guests. Copacabana is a great place for a date or for group dinners. It is quite pricey but if you go on a Friday or Saturday, it is a bit more but there is live entertainment which is always a great experience.

The meal was fabulous and very tasty however the price of $50 a plate is a bit much as for myself I don't think I could eat for that amount. I found it extremely noisy. I would return but this time request a seat at the lower level.
I thought my overall experience at this ...
I thought my overall experience at this Copacabana was great. However, at first I felt that the meats weren't coming around at a quick enough pace as I had finished my sides by the time they first started coming around. But the amazing customer service provided by the servers compensated for the time waited. The only negative comment I would have to make would be having the sides on the lower floor being an issue for people being seated on the higher levels (as I had been). It is a little inconvenient having to go up and down stairs with food. All in all, however, I love Copacabana and plan on continuing to go there for many years to come.
