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!

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!!

Great restaurant for our group of 8. Great selection of food and the meats were terrific. Restaurant was a little loud and would be difficult as a romantic type of venue. Overall was a great experience and would go back.

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.

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.

Was very disappointed, made the reso months ago. Heard amazing things, but not a peep from the restaurant. Mentioned my reso. No table set up. Mentioned again the special occasion we were there for.. nothing again. No dancers which was one main reason we picked this location. Not as many meat selections or food selections as I have heard other locations have. And after a bit the meat stopped coming to our table but clearly.kept going to all the other tables even ones that arrived before us. Not sure I would ever recommend or go back. I have never made a reso so far in advanced to not even have a table reserved and not even a mention of the occasion not even when I mentioned it again.
I think 50 year anniversary is a huge deal. Guess this location and staff doesnt feel the same. It was our 1st time ever attending any location and not sure any of will ever be back.
Very disappointed

The meat seemed to all be marinated in oil, which although is a positive more moistness it made it difficult to enjoy since it wasn't very appetizing.

Didn’t have all the meats they said they have. Chicken and a couple of different types of beef and the buffet was minimal. It was ok but very expensive for what it was wish I would hav3 gone to th3 keg at least we would have got dessert. We were told when we arrived@5:15 that we had till 7:00 as the next guests were. To arrive then. When asked about dessert they told us the grilled pineapple and deep fried bananas were our dessert I wouldn’t rush back nothing special and very expensive. I personally wouldn’t recommend it to anyone

This was an excellent dining adventure. The variety of food was absolutely amazing. We would highly recommended that everyone try this at least once. Once you do, you will be hooked. If you had a location in Barrie we would be regulars. OMG the deep fried bananas were sinful.

Unfortunately we were seated behind a large group. The staff catered to them providing all of the meat to them and then not returning to provide food to the tables behind them. We had to speak with the manager while graciously took our feed back and got the staff to start coming to our table but you shouldn't have to complain to get service

Our server was amazing. The hosts were not very accommodating as we had a reservation and still had to wait over half hour for our table. I also felt like we were skipped a lot for meat. We had to keep asking our server to send over meat and the pineapple. It was just all around lacking other than our server. It was a pretty bad first time for the majority of our party as only one of our 10 has been there before. Just feel that for the value of money we didn’t get our money’s worth at all.
