About Copacabana Brazilian Steak House - Niagara Falls

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!

Unfortunately, we did not have a good experience. The buffet food was very tasty but we did not receive enough meat and it was poorly timed. The skewers of meat conveniently ran out as they approached is or the servers never made it to our table, always turning back the way they came. By the time our waitress flagged them to our table, it was too late. We had waited far too long.

We went for my father in laws b-day. We took an early booking at 4pm. Everything was incredible the staff and food including. The meat server was very friendly and asked serval times if there was anything specific that we would like and then brought it to us. The waitress even brought a special dessert for my father- in- law.

This place has more than enough options to keep you interested. Favourite cuts of meat were the bacon wrapped file mignon, and the parmesan seasoned steaks were a treat of themselves. Everyone would agree that you cannot get enough of the grilled pineapple. Deffinitely try this place out!

Friendly waitress. Took a while to be served meat by carver waiters. They focused their attention serving meat to large groups bypassing us mostly until we were surrounded by large groups as well. Felt as though did not taste the wide array of meat which I had before at the Copacabana Eglinton venue.

This was our second visit to this location. Much better the second time around. Not as crowded. Food was hot and tasty. Service was well paced. The hostess approached us on a number of occasions to ask if we needed/wanted anything else. Sorry we couldn't stick around for the entertainment.

Just make sure the servant stopped at each table not often at the table of people that were there the longest forcing new customer to wait long time for meat. Last time I didn’t have the chance to eat chicken nor shrimp.

I made a reservation a month in advance for a New Years Eve dinner with friends. First seated by a drafty patio in closure that was freezing . Asked if we could move , them I was placed in front of the band . We couldn’t even have a conversation because it was so loud . The service was terrible . Then waited 1/2 hr just to get our bill . To add salt to our wound the jacked up price along with the tip already added to our bill ( explains why our servers didn’t have to work to please ) . Not happy at all with my experience there .

Having a reservation and have still wait, no additional space for that,
To crowded at the receptionist area
Price for the meal was ridiculous, was not worth paying $80 per person. Also it was not disclosed at reservation or in person. No phone call for confirmation was not done.

I have a family of 6, we brought our 10 year old daughter here on December 27th for her Birthday. on their website it says:

"We want to wish you a happy birthday from the Copa family by offering a complimentary dinner.
Gather your friends and celebrate with us.
Just show us your ID. and enjoy. Birthday must be on the same day as the dinner.
Only valid for groups of four(adults) or more.. Cannot be combined with any other promotion. Does not cover tax and gratuity"

However, this was not the case when our bill came. We showed the waitress my daughters ID and asked for her meal to be complimentary, the manager came over to our table to let us know that the birthday special is only given to adults. I was shocked a family of 6 with 5 adults and 1 child?! Where on the website does it say that??? It wasn't the 17.95 meal it was the principle Stand by what your website Advertises. Also the charge a (DMF) Tourist Tax to every bill.

Although the food was very good, we will not be returning!

It was our anniversary and was looking forward to going here. We barley had people with meat come to our table. They would do all the big tables first than run out by the time it got to us. So disappointing. For what we paid we barley got any food and was rushing us out of our seat.

Went later at night, I think some servers were mentally done for the day while other maintained a great level of enthusiasm for what they were serving. Food was great as always (first experience was in Toronto), band was great and salad bar was well stocked. Only complaint is that they don’t have a dessert section. They did serve grilled pineapple (to-die-for), deep-fried bananas and cornbread but it would’ve been nice to have some fresh sorbet as a palate cleanser after all that meat. Just some ideas for the future!

We arrived at 8pm which was 1 hour earlier than our reserved time and the restaurant accommodated us and my family. It was our Christmas eve dinner celebration and were very excited about going to a Brazillian restaurant in Niagara Falls. The meat served was not the disappointment, the meat served was great as advertised. It was the service that was disappointing. It took longer than what I expected to get your next meat (maybe 5-6 minutes before the next server comes to your table) I had my 2nd plate and the meat carver(s) were not there yet to serve. I’ve been to different Brazilian restaurants and you’ll have your plates almost half-full of meats , right before you finished the 1st or 2nd meat that was served to your plate. Overall, the experience wasn’t that bad at all but I believe that they could have given us a better experience during our stay.

Great spot. Fantastic selection of meats and and sides. The parmesan crusted chicken was a favorite. Come hungry and willing to try a few creative dishes. Very accessible for any carnevoire. Parking, like anywhere in Niagara falls is an issue. Best to use we-go or Uber if it's too far to walk.

I took my wife to dinner here to celebrate our anniversary. Upon entering I was at first struck by how loud the music was as well as the style of music playing. I felt as though we had walked in to a dance club. Later the Jazz Band was much more appropriate for the setting.
At our table I was worried when I found dried food caked onto our drink menu. The waitress cleaned that off asks things got Beter from there.
The rest of the night was great. Brazilian dancers, great jazz and super service mage the night a success.

Nothing but accommodating ! I walked in and they had my table ready. I did have a reservation , but I was still amazed. I tend to be very picky with wine. The server we had I believe her name was Cassandra. She had let me taste test 3 different till my date and I had found the perfect fit. The food there was amazing as well and considering my date was Brazilian I was expecting them to have more of a higher expectation. Yet, that expectation was exceeded. Thank you for the amazing night with my partner!
