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!

Good service.
Should have an expanded appetizers bar, but meat makes up for it.

Got One round of 6 types of meet only. We were left for an hour or more with waitresses just passing by without offering anything even after asking multiple times and having the cards on table asking for meet.
Server came by later, cleared the table, after we complained to the manager, nothing was done, a bit later waitresses started to come with meet options however we didn’t have any plates by then and bill was already paid. Very poor service.

I love steak and I have to say, that this place had the best beef I have ever had! From flavour, to texture and how its served. This is definitely a gem for meat eaters to try.

This was my first time at Copacabana. An we both really enjoyed it. Top notch everything we were both very impressed an will be returning for sure. If I had anything bad to say it was a little loud an hard to hear the waiter an the carvers. We liked the fact the Manager came by to see how everything was an went to every table to ask how everything was. We can't wait to go again ..

I took my husband here for his birthday dinner as he has been wanting to try it for awhile. He absolutely loved it. The pros are the meats they carved were definitely flavourful...the servers were kind and attentive. The sides we did try were good, the salads delicious. The atmosphere was decent...could have been a little bit cleaner (tables and menus had a bit of a sticky feeling to them). For me the only things I wasnt crazy about was when we arrived to give our reservation information, the hostess was on the phone and we waited at least 5 to 7 minutes for her to even acknowledge us. From things I've learned etiquette wise you should kindly ask the person on the phone to hold for a minute while you acknowledge the guests in front of you. That was my first impression so it was a major turn off. Otherwise the meat they carve at the table is quite rare...I prefer mine well done so that turned me off from trying more than my husband but maybe it's possible to ask them to cook it more for you, I honestly didnt try asking that but should have. The pineapple and fried bananas were delicious! As was the garlic sirloin. My hubby loved it all. I would probably also have preferred maybe a few more sides such as roasted potatoes instead of just mashed. My hubby did manage to leave there very full though off of almost just the meats lol. We would return, mostly just because it's his type of place. Not the most kid friendly options unless your child loves meats.

TERRIBLE service! Our waitress started out nice but completely ignored us after we got our beers. Took almost 20 minutes after we flipped to no more meat, before she remembered we were one of her tables to ask if we wanted the bill. Lamb was overcooked! Tasted terrible. Cut very small pieces of other meat by carvers. Didn't come around often enough. Ambiance was best part as it feels cozy with the decor. Left hungry. Never coming back here again. Spent over $200 for 4 adults, rip off!

Very very fun to interact with servers and meat purveyors.... found though that meat would often not reach out table and could have been managed better. Extensive salad bar for the non red meat eater

Coming from the GTA we weren’t sure of what to expect from the Niagara Copacabana. We made reservations online for a birthday dinner and we were all amazed at the great service and outstanding hospitality. The live entertainment, the music, the food - all top notch!!

Call the restaurant directly for reservations. We've been several times and always good, except last time when we booked reservations through open table. The reservation will give you the first available table which we were told (by the restaurant) is outside on covered patio. Unfortunately, the restaurant told us we should have called them to get a table inside. Great restaurant, but we could have showed our guests The better atmosphere inside.

The wait staff were very friendly and attentive, we had access to the carvers very frequently.
As first time visitors, we would have appreciated a waitress introducing us to how things work a little sooner. Our host who seated us left the table before we were all seated so we could not address her.
The buffet food was delicious for the most part, but the mashed potato dish was not hot.
The beef offerings were mostly rare, so some options for more well done would have been appreciated.
Thank you!

Every time we come to the falls we go for dinner here.... sometimes twice! We enjoy the salad bar and the meats are so tasty.....Service has always been very good ! If we had one complaint in the past they always came around with “lamb” ... last night no lamb so we asked and they said on its way.... needless to say never got it! If that is our only complaint not really a big deal but disappointing!!!!! We are going again next Tuesday night so perhaps!😄😄

We went for a 60th birthday celebration, and we were virtually alone in our section. We often sat with empty plates waiting for a server to come by. Sometimes a server would come by with the same meat before we saw anything new. I liked the Moroccan Chicken, but the chicken drumsticks were kind of dry. All of the steaks were cooked to perfection, though the garlic steak was so salty none of us could eat it. We thought maybe the cook had mixed up the garlic powder and the salt. Overall it was good food, though a bit on the expensive side, especially since we really didn't have many drinks-a beer and a glass of wine. With taxes and tip it was almost $300 for 4 people. This is a place we will visit again for an important occasion, but definitely will not be a regular haunt.

This location doesn't have the same ambiance as the other locations.
The salad bar is quarter of the size in downtown.
The decor looked like a left over olive garden and didn't feel the same level of quality as the other locations. And not the best server on that day either.

Absolutely the best restaurant we have ever been to! Food was out of this world, we had a 4:15 reservations every thing was fresh and hot it was still relatively quiet and we were treated topshelf our main server was so attentive there was 6 of us and we all like our steak cooked to different degrees of wellness and he definitely made sure we got what we asked for.... best meal ever!!!!

I took my boyfriend for his birthday dinner to be followed by a night of dancing. One. There were no dancers and two we both ended up extremely sick. Once we returned to our hotel room neither one of us could leaavve the washroom. I can not recommend this restaurant to anyone. The poor birthday boy spent his birthday in bed or in the washroom. So disappointed

Food was great. Service was great, however they charged us for two children when my youngest son is only 5. He should have been 6$ not 18$. We will be looking at the bill carefully next time.
Other than that it was a great time.

Apparently we say in a bad section because we just kept getting bland chicken and 5 kinds of flank steak after watching all the tables near us get premium steak cuts over and over again. Was pretty disappointing. We finally said something and got a few pieces that were nice but at that point we were getting full and the cuts that we were getting also seemed almost blue rare.
