Steakhouse
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!

This was our first time at Copacabana. What an amazing experience! We will definitely be back! Don’t skip the grilled pineapple, it will change your life!

I cannot say enough good things about Copacabana Brazilian Steak House!!
We were visiting Niagara Falls for my birthday and this was recommended by the locals as the place to go -- and I have to say, We were definitely not disappointed.
From the service the minute we walked in, to the spectacular selection of meats, to the manager making his rounds and welcoming each table personally, this restaurant truly blew all others out of the water!
We can't wait to go back!!

It was my first time in Copacabana and I cannot say how great it was! All foods and salads are fresh and tasty, service is super-fast, and staff are super-friendly.

They were not busy but did not accommodate without reminders comments in booking sections for special requests. (I asked for booth because of disability in hearing, but they did not seat us there even though they had open booths.) We booked for 830 dinner on a Thursday. There was only one person with meat visiting tables as of 1000pm. By 1030pm, he just walked up and asked what we wanted to be finished. When he returned with meat, he was rude and said we "could just have it all" because we were close to last in restaurant to leave. The tone was terrible. We were an inconvenience for even sending in orders with one server. It was unacceptable service. Just rude and ignorant. I would rather the restaurant cancel on me last minute than paying for this.

Everything was great except for parking. There’s never enough parking and the restaurant doesn’t make it easy for customers to know what they can do when the parking lot is full

Went for my husbands 40th with 4 couples. Buffet was good, meat was mostly raw not rare. Pineapple was good but we all felt sick after. Not worth the $600 for dinner and 1 drink. .

The sides were OK, the drinks were wonderful, the dancers were free entertainment but barely danced, and the staff were friendly. The meat, however, were not good. This was by far the worst Brazilian steakhouse in our experience. We’ve eaten at several from Florida up to Ontario on the east coast and the meat was tough, chewy, and some had weird flavor profiles. The lamb tasted worst of all and the only steak worth eating was the seasoned flank steak. Some steaks were covered in cheeses, which was off and didn’t work flavor wise. The chicken was the best part. All three flavors we tried were amazing, the bbq chicken was one of the best things I’ve ever eaten, but we came for steak. I would totally order the chicken as an entree. The breads were pretty delicious too and the mashed potatoes were good too. The service was lacking after the bar. The server was MIA for large parts of the meal and other servers bussed our table at the end and the meat guys were MIA for long portions of the meal, it was the least amount of service we’ve ever received at this type of steakhouse and it was primtime Friday night, so the place should have been flowing smoothly. We loved the drinks at the bar and will return for cocktails in the future, but I wouldn’t go for dinner again. The place a block down the road is way better overall.

We went for my wife’s 40th birthday. I’d reserved and requested a booth at the top section. When we got there the hostess didn’t seem to care that there was a reservation at all and we were seated at a table for 2 people. I asked if they had booths available as I could see there were empty ones and was told no. The food was very good which was the only thing we enjoyed. Our server was frantic and far too busy, when she took a second to stop you didn’t want to bother her. There was a large table of guests and once they left all the furniture was being moved around and placed in different areas. Dragging it and yelling orders where to put them, was so unprofessional and complete lack of respect or customer service for the rest of us guests sitting there. There was no acknowledgement of her birthday when I asked she said she could write happy birthday on the bill...Were not going to be returning nor recommending it to anyone in the region. Such a disappointment $150.00 later.

The food was excellent. The service from the guys bringing the food around to tables was excellent. We did feel a little rushed. The waitress was a little under whelming, and the restaurant is very noisy. But we still love the place.

Our trip to copacabana this time was fantastic. It was our first time bringing our 13 year old son and he was in awe. The meat came at a great pace when we first arrived, but slowed down towards the end when the restaurant started filling up. That was ok tho because we were already stuffed. Great experience. Very expensive tho, so we can only come once a year

We love our trips to NF and getting awesome food at Copacabana. My husband loves to eat and this always fills his belly! And the meats are to die for. This guys work fast at zipping to the tables with the various meats.
Not to mention the scrumptious variety of buffet foods as well.
Definitely worth the money

We went to Copa for my Birthday in Niagara Falls. We had been to the Vaughan location and loved it and heard great things about this location as well.

The staff were very friendly and attentive, however the food was mediocre. Most of the meat that came out was cooler than normal and the cuts of did not seem as fresh and some items were completely over cooked.

It was a Sunday evening, and the restaurant wasn’t as busy, so not sure if the kitchen just had most of the items left over and were trying to get rid of overstock, but the quality was not what we excepted from such popular Brazilian steak house.

Overall we were a little dissatisfied with the food, sadly our expectations of this place were not at par with our previous experience in Vaughan.

If I could put a zero I would. Went here on Sunday for my anniversary with my boyfriend and wasn’t greeted or brought water until 15 minutes after we already had food on our table. Had to wave down a different server just to get a glass of water. Once our server got to our table she didn’t even apologize for not greeting us or taking long to come to our table. Didn’t do anything other than bring a jug of water halfway through our meal. Didn’t even tell us her name, ask how our food was tasting, NOTHING. Also, we had mentioned on our reservation that it was our anniversary and if something special could be done for us and of course, nothing, not even an acknowledgment. This is the first time I have ever written a review for a restaurant, being a server I’m usually understanding but this experience completely ruined our anniversary and we ended up ordering McDonald’s after we were finished. Buffet was disappointing and the steaks were repetitive. If we’re paying $110 for dinner it should be worth the money. Wish we went to the Keg instead.
