Steakhouse
Perfect For:
  • Special Occasion
  • Good for a Date
  • Good for Birthdays
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!

Food was brought out very quickly, we felt like we had to keep up. If we go again we would definitely pace ourselves. It is a lot of food! Flavour wise, it was fantastic!

Food Coma that will make your mouth tingle all the way down to your dangling cherries. Expensive dinner but it's worth it once in a while.

Went for my wife's 60th birthday enjoyed our stay. The Staff were all very friendly. Food was great if you like medium rare which was fine for myself, when we arrived the hostess asked us if med rare would be okay and my wife asked if she could possibly get well done the reply was yes but each time the meat came rare to med rare is what we got ( very very expensive dinner that she could not enjoy).

I should go to Copa on a Tuesday every time. It was nice and quiet, the service was on the ball and the food came out quickly and in good quantities. Everyone in our party of seven loved the food, the servers and the staff. We would go again in a heartbeat!

We have been to both now....Copa and Brasa....Copa was more casual/jeans and the other more fancy..we went for my sons 17th. The only thing I didn't like is no dessert table, you had pineapple or bananas served to your table. Other than that lots of meat offered not much fish....we never received the salmon.

My guests were running a few minutes late due to a broken elevator but the waitresses continuously came up to us telling us how much time we had left. There are 10+ different meats, yet our table only saw 3-4 different kinds. All in all, the waitresses were rude but it was good.

The food was great, but we got seated in the middle and every time the meat was coming they would run out by the time they get to us. We waited a long time to get some meat. The food was great it was unfortunate that we loaded up on buffet food and when the meat finally came to our table we couldn't eat anymore. Next time we will as for a table at the end :)

We were at copacabana this past weekend to celebrate a friend's birthday. We had a great time and staff was very accommodating. My only complaint is that we were seated in the outer area . Initially we were right in front of the door which was very drafty but the staff was nice enough to move us over a few tables which was much more tolerable. Would have been better if we were moved inside given there were empty tables in there but it did not ruin our evening. Fir future I will remember to ask for inside seating :)

Went to Niagara Falls to celebrate a birthday and booked this restaurant for a group of 6. It was perfect as everyone could choose what they wanted and it was unique in that you go to a buffet bar to select your sides and the different kinds of "proteins" come delivered to your table and a piece carved off onto your plate. They had different kinds of meats, poultry and fish. Everything was delicious!!!

Date night with the HUBS..although we have been there before this past Saturday was very different… the service was extremely slow… Our waitress was great, friendly and full of smiles

I feel like we waited for meats to come around, it took so long that we filled up on sides.. this time around the experience was just okay

We went there to celebrate our first anniversary which they barely recognized. The food and service were great but way too overpriced for what you get.

It was also kind of annoying to see the manager giving an old acquaintance sitting next to us the special treatment . Considering he walked by everyone else once and acknowledging only a few guests.

It was our first time trying the Copa Cabana in Niagara Falls. We’ve gone to the Toronto locations several times. The Hostess accommodated our family of 5. We requested a corner table suitable for families and our request was met. The server was very attentive. The manager came to our table a few times, cleared few dishes, gave us chimichurri for our steak. The person who carved the meat was efficient with our meat requests.

Great experience will definitely have our family revisit the Niagara Falls location.

Thanks again!

Came for a birthday dinner. Have been to this restaurant before so I knew what to expect. Was disappointed with where I was seated. Made a reservation almost a week and a half in advance and was seated almost right by the kitchen. Could see behind the scenes, and the area was very cold cause it was right by the front door. Food is always amazing, just disappointed with the placement of our table. Very weird setup. Was so close to the kitchen, yet meat barely came around. Had to ask our server more than once to make sure the meat is being distributed evenly.

My wife and I have eaten at two other Copa's in Toronto and just loved it, so we took out two other couples for a special occasion to make a night of it at the Niagara Falls Copa and was told the whole night that this was a great choice as they have never experienced a restaurant like this before.....ALL was very good.

Generally we visit this restaurant once a year...seems the excitement of this type of steakhouse experience has worn off. Less variety of meats circulating and the service was very poor...asked for water refills several times before receiving any. Apparently she felt the wine we ordered kept us busy for awhile. A hair on the carved pineapple which she apologized for but was more concerned about telling us it was not hers....no manager visit.
Upside...the Brazilian dancers were great!
Unfortunately probably our last visit there...too many other choices!

Poor buffet options, there were many more choices of meats listed on the menu than what was offered. At some point, the meat stopped coming and we generally don’t eat much. The variety was very limited. Mediocre at best.

The food is amazing specially the meat, you dont want to fill up on too much pastas or breads.
They keep the meat coming as long as your ready! Only thing id say about the Niagara location vs.say Toronto locations weve been too, is that Toronto has more of a selection in their buffet section, as well as shrimp on skewers that come to your table, Niagara did not! Also Toronto has more entertainment while your there like belly dancers and live dj, which made it a more all around entertainment dinner package. Niagara location is a much nicer space and layout, specially with the open patio out front. Make reservations tho which ever one you go too tho, because it is always busy with big waiting times!

This is the second time we have been to Copacabana and I must say it was much better the second time. Both times we sat on the floor where the dancers perform. Both years we were asked to move so that the dancers could dance and the service would stop during the show but would resume after the show. Last year the meat service did not resume and we left feeling very disappointed. This year it did and we felt much better about our experience there

I took my boyfriend here for his 30th birthday because he was asking about it. When we got there they sat us at the end of a row. The server said they said they would be around with 14 different types of meat. It took 20 mins for the first meat server to show up, it seemed like they kept skipping our table. After this it was 15 mins to the next meat, then 10 mins to the next, when people 2 tables over from us got service every few minutes. The server came back then and asked how everything was, we told her well we only have tried 3 meats so far and they seem to miss us. She seemed to try to fix it. 2 meat servers came up to us, this was the same meat we already tried. Then again it slowed 15 mins later another showed. All in all this ruined our experience. There is a super small buffet that you can choose a few things but not a lot of choice.

Then our server came with a small desert for my boyfriends birthday. They do not sing or anything here. Then the manager or someone higher (Lila) came over as they take care of the bills. There website says that on your birthday you are compted the meal. When we got our bill, she says to us, "oh that is only if you have 4 or more people!" Well that is not what it said when i made the reservations. She then asked how our experience was. I said "well we didnt really get to try close to all the meats and they seemed to skip us alot." Lila replied, "oh I have heard that a lot, that is unfortunate. Also you have to have 4 people to comp the birthday. Overall not a good experience!

The only goood part I can say is that Sarah our waitress seemed that she was doing her best, but definitely overworked.
