    We enjoyed our dinner. We arrived when they were just getting started. They helped us sort out some initial Groupon confusion and explained the rules of the road. A basket of small garlic bread balls flew. They didn't need butter. Upon our signal, the meats started coming. What a profusion, what a procession. Tough to tell the flank from the prime rib slices on your dish, tougher still to keep up as they arrived. We counted until we stopped counting but they probably delivered more than the 14 kinds. The gourmet salad bar was very weak; the unlimited cocktail shrimp were unpeeled (what did you think?); chunky pieces of parmessan were the highlight. Parking was no issue, huge lot across street. The bill included tip.

    Salad bar was phenomenal. There was a variety of food to choose from, there was even sushi. The selections of the never ending meats were fantastic. So much to choose from. My favorite was the lamb. It was cooked to perfection. The fried bananas were a big hit with my kids. The staff was kind and gave the kids a second helping. Friendly atmosphere, I will definitely go back real soon.

    For a place that specializes in meat I would have expected better meat. All the meat was dry, including the prime rib. The salad bar was better than the meat and it was not even that good. I will not go here again.

    The meat was delicious. And there was so much meat. It just wouldn't stop coming. I wouldn't recommend going there if you don't have a lot of money or your having a fast dinner and have some place to be. But for a special occasion or a romantic evening i highly recommend this place

    Very fun place! Great for steak lovers. If you haven't been to a Brazilian steak house before this is a great place to start. They serve 14 different types of meat at dinner time and it's all you can eat. The excellent service makes the experience first class. The meat keeps coming and coming!

    We have been to other Brazilian steakhouses in NYC where they are stingy when serving the meats but Copacabana was very generous. Meats were very tasty and plentiful. You did not have to wait for the servers to come. They were constantly coming by your table. Salad bar was ok. Would definitely return.

    We went to Copacabana for Father's day and had reservations but they still made us stand in the bar area (with two small kids) so they can set up the table. We saw two large tables empty and ready. We could have easily sat down while they grab a highchair but instead they made us stand for 10-15 minutes while they grab a highchair and ONE napkin to set up the table. While waiting we saw a second family with two small kids (that arrived after us) sit down at one of the table and when we question them, they said our table was not ready. JUST PLAIN BAD SERVICE. Food was okay. The food came around one time and then STOP and we had to request the food we wanted. Overall, we will not be back. Too much headaches for not great food.

    The first time I came here was with a group of 14 people for dinner. I had a great experience. This past Sunday on mother's day for lunch was my second experience and it was not good. The salad bar choices were not great. It took forever for cuts of meat to come to our table. Also the meat that came over were either overcooked, not cooked enough, or unflavored. I was not satisfied and left with a bill of $200 for 3 adults and a child. The only thing satisfying was dessert which was over priced.

    And the service was in attentive at best. The meat was tough and fatty, but the salmon my wife ordered was frozen not fresh and still over cooked. The mojito was served with some dirt in the glass. The room lights were on too bright and all kids.

  • My Favorite but not Tuesday

    Dined on 4/29/2014
    Have been here about 4-5 times total. Probably one of my favorite Brazilian style steak places. Pitchers of Sangria (red or white are very good). Prices are as reasonable as you can get. This time I learned my lesson. Stay away from Tuesdays. They are closed Mondays and we could tell. Cheese bread was stale (clearly old from Sunday- which I happen to have been there on as well 2 days prior). Steak/meat was mostly over done. Had never encountered this before and service to get anything was really slow- and I targeted peak dinner hour 6:45 to address what I figured could be a slow day. I have had nothing but good experiences here before just advise to stay away from Tuesdays. Clearly not the same place.

    I have been to Brazilian Steakhouses before and have to admit this one is good, but not the best. The salad bar was tiny and did not have a great variety of salads and vegetables. The steaks did have good flavor but my boyfriend and I had to eat just the edges of the meat and then waste the middle because they were so rare, almost blue looking and we eat our steak medium. It was a bit frustrating to continually ask for Medium to Medium Well steak and be served practically rare steak. But if you like your meat more on the rare side then you'll love this place. Again good flavor and nice, clean ambiance.

    We have been here a few times and it was very clear from our most recent visit that they are struggling. The salad bar presentations were empty almost all of our two hour stay. After complaining several times, they finally restocked some brown lettuce but conveniently forgot all of the high end items such as shrimp. They no longer serve sushi. We sat for two hours waiting for meat which was very slow, and they did not offer us half of what was promised on the menu. We felt as though we had to beg for them to bring us more choices and they were rude when we did not want the one or two choices they were pushing. Also, without any mention by the menu or waiter they changed their policy for kids. They were free last time, but now $20 each

    I went there to have dinner with my husband. Employees are nice and friendly. There is no dress code. We could enjoy BBQ in the casual atmosphere. But BBQ was okay. I became full soon, and maybe my expectations were too high. My husband liked the food, so I think this restaurant is good for people who can eat a lot(maybe men).

    We have been to several brazilian barbeque restaurants, and this was definitely the worst. The food was not hot, it had fatty and gristly pieces in it, and there was not enough variety (it was nearly all beef based). And what is usually the best part, the cinnamon sugar covered pineapple, included several slices that were the center of the pineapple (the part that is so hard you can't eat it), and the cinnamon sugar was all cinnamon and no sugar. The salads were just ok. The service was very good. Overall, we were very disappointed, and will not be going there again. Instead, I recommend you go to Rodizios in Stamford, an excellent Brazilian barbeque (and significantly cheaper). We have been there many times and its always great.

    we had made reservations a few weeks prior to going. When we got there they had two parties going so we had to be seated in the back part of the restaurant which was a separate room all together from the salad bar. Very inconvenient to walk back and forth. We should have been notified.

    The steaks, sausages, etc are excellent here. The top sirloin is fantastic. Bark is incredible tasting. I'd say that the salad bar is adequate at this price point... but would be nicer if there was more of a selection and it was larger.

    Must say I over indulged. Salad bar =awesome. The service great. I was hungry & my eyes were bigger than my stomach but I was still at it and had 3/4 of a plateful and they were very cordial in giving me take-out for the rest of my salad which I thought was awesome. There were n't many varieties of meat but with the 3-4 that were served (and I have never been to a Brazillian rest), the meat was prepared well & really without seasonings so I tasted the true flavors and appreciated the salad bar again to compliment my meats. Maybe that is why I was eating so much...Normally I cook w/ heavy spices &eat less. My kids said they have gone to this sort of a place and likewise the 3 of them (19,22,23 yrs old) all really appreciated the nite out.
