Copacabana Brazilian Steak House - Niagara Falls
9.9/10,food was awesome, perfect service, had a nice night
I enjoyed the food very much; I only wish the portions were a bit bigger. When we first arrived it wasn’t very busy but quickly filled up so the carvers were moving like crazy but only offering a few seconds to grab just a sliver of meat, and then you’d wait a bit for the next round. Overall it was worth the cost of dinner and will be back for sure.
Pretty expensive night but service was incredible. Meats were delicious. Could use a refresh as it is starting to look dated.
Love this place! My husband and I usually like to keep out our dining-out budget under $100 per outing, but neither one of us minds going a little over budget here. The food is great and they keep it coming. We had booked 6:30 reservation on Open Table but arrived early to our hotel so we went at 5 and asked if we could change it so we could come earlier. They accommodated us, no problem.
The food was amazing, all the servers were very polite and if we asked for a certain cut of meat, they would bring it. Very friendly staff and very good food! I will go back for sure.
Too bad we missed out on the grilled pineapple. Hopefully the next time we'll be able to try it
Our table kept getting skipped by servers. Several times food was offered to tables around us, and plates with food still on them were returned to the kitchen without being offered to us. We did not get to try any pork, chicken or bread options. A birthday was indicated in the reservation and never acknowledged, which honestly made this experience even more disheartening (we saw another table have their special event recognized as our server rushed to get us the bill). Definitely not worth the $160 I paid. I have to take my boyfriend out again to proper celebrate his birthday since this experience was so poor. This place is a tourist cash grab.
Overall the experience was good. Did not follow reservation notes like I had hoped.
Unfortunately, our experience did not start out well. We were seated right away, but nobody came to see us for almost 10 minutes. Kudos to the "owner" "manager" for noticing we had nothing to drink on our table and therefore had not been served by anyone, however, even after he "noticed" us, nobody came for another 5 minutes or so. We started to get a little annoyed when a table of 4 people came in AFTER us and were looked after first and were going to leave for The Keg. Our waitress did show up, and once she did, was very, very nice. The meat servers were great too. We did have a good meal, nice wine and a reasonable bill.
Outstanding restaurant. I would say don't waste your tummy room on the side dishes but hey.....you do you.
The food is great, but the service is really dependent on where you are seated. We go often and if we are seated at the start of one of the carvers routes we get tons and lots of options. If we are near the end it feels like we just get leftovers.
Food was incredible, tables were a little cramped for us but space was beautiful! Will definitely be back.
The meats were very good and the Buffett had verity just not to my taste. But i found what I liked and just stuck to the small selection. The staff was really nice and friendly. If you don’t ask they can’t tell so if you have questions you got to ask. Overall it was a nice treat and a new experience.
We were disappointed with the selection of meats; their was only one chicken dish; little drum sticks and no salmon offered. The lamb and beef selection was good.
The salad bar was also limited.
We would not make an effort to come back unless we knew their was a larger selection offered. Thanks
Service, food and side bar was all 5 star
I loved the food, i would definetly recommend it to a friend.
However the reason i gave an overall rating of 4 stars is because i found the waitress uniform a bit too revealing. The extra low cut top with half of breasts revealed is very inapropriate and it just made my date night very akward everytime the waitress would show up. I would rethink my visit at copacabana for the next time.
We usually go to the other Brazilian steakhouse in Niagara falls (Brasa) , they were closed for remodeling, so we decided to try Copacabana. As far as looks, it’s doesn’t look like the nicest place in the world, but looks aren’t everything! The staff were super friendly, the food was absolutely amazing! To be honest, my wife and I were totally shocked! Our beverages were always kept full, and our plates always had some type of meat on them. As an added extra, when we were leaving, I noticed the gaucho’s were cooking the meat to the right of the room, one of them told us good night, I asked him if that’s where the magic happened, he said yes and invited me over and proudly showed me how they cooked the meat! That was just a bonus to an already amazing dinner! We will definitely be back!
The food was delicious, service was good. I just wished the meat came out a little faster, because I filled up on the delicious salads to quickly.
One person in our group preferred to have his meat well done. Well he went home hungry that night. We kept asking the waiter for well done and the waiter kept informing us that it’s coming but he never got his meal. The service was good initially but as the evening went by the waiters came around few and few times. The website lists all different meats but we only got few…no pork, no lamb, no chicken???
Always wonderful service! Staff are attentive and make sure you have everything you need. I find a lot of negative posts that I have seen for this location are things beyond their control; this is a prime location in the tourism area of Niagara Falls. As long as you are prepared to wait if you must, book ahead if possible, and take the wait with a grain of salt, this location has always delivered great service. This location can be quite busy on weekends, expect a wait if you haven't reserved.
Awesome as usual. Carvers are great.
What a fantastic evening as usual at the Copacabana in Niagara Falls.
The staff was very friendly and Felicia who served our table was fantastic, she was always attending our needs and making sure everything was right.
The food is always amazing as well.
The staff were very friendly. I liked how the manager came around to check in on the customers. But the bill for a couple alcoholic drinks and overly salted meats was wayyyy over priced.
WOW! A must for any carnivore!! A unique experience that is built to satisfy any appetite.
we had a great night altogether. great food and great service
Food was excellent and well worth the money. Make sure you are hungry when you arrive because everything is delicious! The wine list wasn’t as great as I would have hoped, but we definitely found something enjoyable. We will definitely be back.
Excellent food excellent service excellent staff excellent everything
Very good service and food!

We had such an amazing time! We had one specific server by the name of max who was incredible and so friendly!
We celebrated our sons 18th birthday here. The meats were delicious. The staff friendly and accommodating. Great experience overall and we will return!
Meats could be more well done.
Some very bloody - asked server to ask kitchen to cook to at least well but still on rare side compared to Brasa.
Also had to ask server and meat servers about close to 10 times to serve us the lamb, salmon and rib. Lamb we basically got for desert before leaving. Took 2 hrs to get it. Never got rib.
Depends where they seat you. We were in corner so perhaps by time meat server gets to us the skewer is empty and they forget to come back? The table right at the stairs in back gets first choice - infact we saw server go up stairs, go to their table of 6 slide all meat off, back down stairs and up again with different meat, feed that whole table and leave. Must of been VIP table. Us in corner had to wait looooooong time between meats and got thin mostly bloody peices ea time. Very loud. Dancers were entertaining for people that can see them. Us being seated upstairs in corner - forget it.
The restaurant was nice and the food was good. We were planning to go to Brasa but it was closed due to renovations so we thought we give this a try. There buffet selection of salads were limited. They only had a couple of salads, 1 try of cheese and cold meats. I’ve been to Brasa before and they have a lot more sections, they have a section of cheese, bread and even shrimp! This restaurant has no seafood which I thought was disappointing because of the price.
Overall, the food was good and the meat was amazing and warm. The only dessert was the warm pineapple which took forever to receive. We had to ask our server twice for it because we were done our meal and wanted to leave.
The restaurant was good but the service staff was very slow and the gauchos did not come around often enough. We were there for our 10th anniversary and it was very disappointing we will probably not be visiting this restaurant again.
Great as usual
This time found most meat very undercooked
Kept skipping our table
Same cuts of meat kept coming
The experience was super bad! The food was ok, 3 stars from 5. We were 4 adults and 2 children. Parents came to visit us from Europe. I was hoping to show them an interesting place, not like a European style of serving food. since we were in several such places and we liked it. we were ashamed that we had such a dirty place on our Niagara Falls! The tables were all sticky and shabby, the seats were dirty, the interior was very old. the owners do not care about what beats there comfortably, they need only your money. We left $ 300 there. it is not worth your time and money if you want to sit in a beautiful, normal environment and eat well. I’m ashamed to lead guests from Europe there. it is still a tourist place and tourists should be met with dignity so that they would like to return there!
Interesting concept. Food labelling was ok. We have a few allergies in our group. One mislabelled one had nuts. No good for us, wife was anxious all night afterwards . They offered to comp a meal but came to forget that at payment time.
Update- was called by manager who has now made the whole situation correct. Wet above and beyond in terms of customer service in this regard. Well done!
This is by far my family's favorite. Service is quite good and the food awsome. The salad bar has a great selection. The show sets it all in character.
