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!

The lamb and chicken was terrible and caused all three of us to spend the night on the toilet.
Meat handling in the kitchen area was definitely sub par.

Menu was dirty when we were seated. We were not offered drinks for twenty minutes, i think there was confusion with the servers. Also despite asking for grilled pineapple half an hour before we had to leave, we did not get any pineapple.

Food was amazing. The servers were great and personable. We were there very late and were the last table to leave and were never rushed. They provided great service even at closing, when I am sure they just wanted to clean up and go home. We will dine here for sure. A well deserved 5 stars.

We had an awesome evening out with friends and family. My mother ate for free for her birthday and we got to see the great show. The band was really good as well. The service was wonderful, everyone was very friendly. Unfortunately for the workers the tip was added in (which I hate) The tip that was added was $33. Had it not been added they would of got $50 from me. Other then that it was just great!!!!

What a wonderful experience. Food was delicious, best meat I ever had. I love how you got to try so many different kinds. Lots of variety and the service was amazing.

Hello , me and my family went this past Saturday Oct 19 , to celebrate our son's birthday. We went for dinner I personally enjoy the sides bar all tho I think it's space for improvement in adding some more options .
Service was great very friendly and helpful.
It was a live Brazilian dance show as well a live band on the Terrace afterwards, very delightful.
Bathrooms wore clean and all supplies needs wore available.
At the end of the meal the waiter brought a dessert with a ❇ for our son and everyone said happy birthday.
It wasn't our first time enjoying a meal here as we love this restaurant but It was the first time seen the show and we truly enjoyed our family dinner.
Thank you to all personnel @ Copacabana Brazilian Steak House fir making sure me and my family had such an amazing celebration.
Truly yours.
Raven13 & Family 💜

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.

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.

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.
