    I usually have a great time here. However, it was very slow. The food wasnt coming around fast enough and the red meat was under cooked. I have come to copa many many times and I would rate the times before a 9/10 or a 10/10 BUT Monday night to me was a waste of $200,00 for a 3 person meal. Very slow, not enough variety (surprisingly) and undercooked red meat it was a 4/10. If I ever go back, it will be in the summer when things are normal. You would think that on a slower night everything would be better but it wasnt. I was and am disappointed

    The Bread was fantastic, especially the fresh baked cheese bread, the drinks were large and refilled promptly, and the salad bar was excellent, but we went there for the meat, which was rather disappointing. The portions were tiny, you barely get 3 small shaved slices, the meat quality was okay, but our plates were actually empty more then they were full. If they actually had good portions I could recommend it, but overall you are better off going to Brasa.

    We celebrated my mother's birthday here. There were 8 of us including my baby niece. We made reservations about a week prior and when we got there we were seated promptly. The service was excellent. Our server took our drink orders right away, checked on us frequently and always made sure our water bottle was filled. The food was amazing. The buffet had a lot of different options for sure dishes and all the steaks were cooked beautifully. Overall, we all had a great time and will definitely be returning.

    The place had 17 types of meet they would bring out to our table for use to try. Most were good and a couple were great. They also had a salad bar and some hot foods too. All the food was good and the and the service was too. The only compliant was it is a little over priced. They charged us for coffee around $7. I really wasn't expecting a charge for that. So the experience could have been better. Altogether I would recommend and would go back. Total bill for two with 2 drinks and tip $140.

    The dinner was delicious, lots of different choices and amazing variety, however, I was quite disappointed when I realized there was no entertainment. I think the music band and dancers should go all weekend long, or be more clearly stated on the website that it is only provided on Fridays and Saturdays. Other than that, dinner was absolutely delicious. I especially liked how the manager or owner made a personal appearance. Another thing I would suggest is to offer special birthday treats or services. I think that this would make for a more entertaining night out for groups of people. Thanks for the great experience!

    It was my first time eating at Copacabana at Niagara Falls location and my experience was my delightful. My friends recommended Copacabana and as a meat lover, by far it was the best steakhouse I've ever been. The quality of food exceeds my standards. The ambiance was great. We went on a weekday night, there wasn't that much people thus the service was fast and extremely friendly. Salad bar was exceptional. The staff never let the food container empty and the food is always fresh. One thing they need to improve on is when the meat server does not say the name of the meat properly or loudly. Overall, we are very satisfied and would definitely come back and recommend the restaurant with friends and family.

    We have a few South American Meat restaurants close to us in London (UK) and we've enjoyed them immensely, however Copacabana has shown us that they are not on the same level. The welcome was very warm, we were shown to our table immediately with the waitress arriving a few seconds later. Then the hardest part of the evening, working out what wine to drink. To us (deprived Brits) the salad bar range was immense, and the meat kept coming. Unlikely we'll be back any time soon (last time we were in Canada was 26 years ago on our honeymoon), but we definitely come back if we had the chance.

    We were not all that pleased with the Copacabana Niagara Falls. My husband and I were celebrating our anniversary and received no special treatment whatsoever. In fact we sat for 20 minutes before a waitress even came over to speak with us. My husband had to call her over as she only seemed to serve the table across from us - which came in after us! We were both disappointed in the buffet selection and food too. My husband tried the pickled beets and said they tasted bad.

    We dined here Sept. 24th with our daughter and son-in-law. They've been before but this was our first time-we loved it! The all you- can- eat feature - great with lots to choose from. Meat selections varied and delicious. Grilled pineapple is a must feature! The food and servers were excellent!! It was a quiet night as we dined mid-week and in an early time slot. We are however looking forward to another visit on a Friday or Saturday night when things are hopping!!. If you have never experienced this type of dining you will not be disappointed and if you have you will be going back for more!! Thanks so much for making our first experience a great experience. We have already recommended to family and friends!

    Dined on 9/21/2014
    We went a little before 5pm and found that it took way too long for them to come around with the meats, so basically we spent that much money on salad. There was a lot time we were waiting for them to come around with the meat and when they did it wasn't what we wanted. We didn't have half of the meat items listed on the menu due to the fact they didn't come around so we just took whatever we could, but if your paying that kind of money you should be able to eat what you want. The service was excellent it wasn't the servers fault they brought out whatever was cooked and ready. I wouldn't go back for a very long time

    not a place for a 4years old bday. They charged $6 when it should have been free (typical picky eater). and the booth seating is too low for the table. I advised when making the reservation, why did I have to run down and beg for the little extra they do for a birthday celebration? I always heard Niagara is better, I have to say the band and ambiance and set up is BETTER than the eglinton and young set up

    Upon entering, the restaurant was very dark. Once seated, our table was intimate & cozy. The servers were extremely nice & helpful. Amazing salads and sides at the buffet, meat was very plentiful and they were really accommodating. The servers kept asking which cuts we liked and they were sure to bring that back for us instantly. The grilled pineapple is to die for. Our waitress brought us fresh hot corn muffins and the best deep fried bananas in cinnamon sugar that I have ever had. This was a surprise! My only problem with this restaurant is that they only have fish on the weekend. The restaurant is like a nightclub on the weekends and not for quiet dining. Too bad we cannot enjoy it with family and friends who are vegetarians!

    I have eaten at many of these Brazilian style steakhouses and this definitely ranks as the worst. They rarely come by with meat, and I have never seen salmon, pineapple or so much chicken at a "steakhouse". It's cheaper than most and still not worth it!

    I had been here previously and came back tonight because I had enjoyed myself the first time. Unfortunately we had to watch as the waiters repeatedly walked by us without so much as a glance even though our card was flipped to show "fire it up". Once someone finally glanced in our direction we were able to get served, but being on the way back to the kitchen we often received what was left of the meat rather than some of the choicer cuts. Mix up your routes fellas!

    My wife and I had a great time and enjoyed the food at Copacabana in Niagara Falls. Once the loud canned music was turned off and the live band started, the ambience improved, although it was a tad loud. I would go back and recommend it to anyone who doesn't know that different cuts beef taste completely different from each other, especially with the different seasonings. Menu's, buffet labels and print collateral (website update, too perhaps) should have gluten free designations to accommodate GF diners. It's the 2010's, time to get with the program.

    I have been to Brazilian Steak Houses before and this one certainly delivered the experience I was looking for. Took my husband and son for their first time - the food was very good and the meats were scrumptious. The sausage was great but the best of all was the sirloin. They gave us a birthday dessert which was very nice (super sweet). We will definitely go back. Service was exceptional

    I would highly recommend the Copa, after visiting the Brasa on two other ocasions I wasnt very happy with the Brazilain experience. The Copa was recommmended to me and after having a great meal and excellent service my faith has been restored. Our watress was excellent and very attentive and the waiters were pretty good as well. My only complaint is that we were a table of two and were put beside a table of 8 one side and a table of 6 on the other. So when the meat was served to either side of us there was nothing left and we were overlooked a number of times with different cuts of meat. But the atmosphere was excellent and we had a very nice booth just for the two of us and found it very romantic.

    Our dinner was good, but this kind of buffet requires a certain degree of patience. If you accept all of the different meats that are offered, you will quickly become too full to try the others. Be selective and take your time. Then, you will get to taste some very nice grilled meats etc...

    This was my first visit - and probably my last. :( We brought colleagues visiting from Spain to Niagara Falls to see the sites and thought the Copacabana Brazilian Steak House would be a nice experience. Wrong ! Maybe because we had a 9pm reservation - the music was extremely loud and not conducive to conversation - it was disappointing. The house band wasn't very good either. The food was enjoyable - the wait staff didn't visits our table at the frequency as we were lead to believe and my selection of items from the salad bar were bland in my opinion. Your star rating for noise level is misleading - energetic is the only item that reflects LOUD and Unpleasant.

    My fiancé and myself came here on a Monday night for a engagement dinner! The waitress was very sweet and very attentive. The food was delicious and hot and my favourite is the garlic sirloin. I try not to fill up at the salad bar but they have a nice selection of salads from ceaser salad to quinoa and pasta salad. If you come here, come hungry! The grilled pineapple is amazing as well as the corn bread muffins. We had a bottle of wine which was not bad priced at $32 a bottle. As a final touch, the waitress brought out a warm brownie on a plate which had congratulations ! Written out in tasty raspberry sauce. It was a great time and I recommended highly!
