About

This restaurant is permanently closed. Copacabana is located in the heart of the fast-growing village of Port Chester, NY. For nearly a decade now, our traditional all-you-can meat parade, has become such popular choice amongst locals, that travelers and larger city residents now take the trip to experience the meat-fest (and salad bar, and side dishes, and everything else that keeps on coming until you tell your waiter you've had enough!).

Service isn’t the best, good value with the Groupon.
Don’t like the fact they add the tip when using a Groupon.

The buffet didn’t have a good variety of hot sides. Just a pasta with shrimp (which I don’t eat), some steak and rice and beans. Too many beef options and the chicken was wrapped in bacon except the drumsticks (which I don’t like).

It was just okay. Some of the meats were kinda tough & chewy. I’ve had better. Maybe it was an off day, everything else was okay

I would definitely recommend Copacabana for their food and service quality. My only disappointment was in the atmosphere of the place, I assumed it would be more formal because the dress code was listed as business casual. Most people were dressed in casual outfits, including jeans and sweatshirts. If you are looking for a casual dinner, I highly recommend!

Came here on Vday with reservation. We were seated promptly with no wait. The service was impeccable! The servers and the meat carriers were very attentive. The meat were very tender, juicy and tasty! The salad bar, I did t really care for. I wish they had more selection esp. cheese.
Overall, I would come back and recommend this place. Yes it is no Fogo de Chao, but at the price we paid and the service we got, it’s worth every penny!

This place was just ok. For the price meat election was adequate but I wish they had more flavor. The salad bar was mostly cold, low cost items and the only hot items were white rice, beans, meatballs & breaded chicken in lemon sauce. It would have been nice if they would had had hot vegetable items and another starch like potatoes etc. Service was good. We went with Groupon deal (two dinners for $42). Our bill included one alcohol beverage, taxes & 20% gratuity totaling $39.11. We usually tip 20% anyway so it was fine because the service was up to par.

This was a great experience! I brought a friend to lunch to celebrate her birthday. They did not disappoint. The salad bar was fresh. The meats were scrumptious! Make sure you try the endless beans and rice as well as he fried bananas. The staff was very patient in helping us navigate the new experience. I am bringing my family for dinner next week.

We came here to celebrate my wife’s birthday. Our experience was phenomenal and the hospitality was superb.

The caipirinhas were divine and an absolute must try!

The salad bar was diverse and high quality, with a range of Brazilian specials and assorted cuisine from across the world.

At $42/person, the rodizio might seem expensive on the surface, however you get a lot of high quality and high varieties of meats in an upscale environment. While it appeared the gauchos were not popping by as much as other places, the place was packed and they happily and promptly brought us any meats we requested. They even went out of their way to cook some coracon (chicken hearts) for my wife upon request.

Finally, the dessert was awesome. The brigadero cake was great and our daughter loved the brownie sundae. We called the manager over (forgot to get her name) to tell her how happy our experience had been. She was very kind and her hospitality was of a quality that you sadly just don’t seem to find elsewhere. She should be commended and recognized for her exceptional service.

Overall, an excellent steakhouse experience that we highly recommend. We most definitely will be back!

I’ve gone to this restaurant with a group of friends for several years now and we’ve had our expectations very easily met, if not exceeded, each time. This most recent time, however, seemed to be different. The restaurant looked like it had undergone a remodeling of sorts which could mean new ownership (or not) but our food also came out at a much slower rate than previous visits. At certain points in the past, multiple times in the same 60 seconds we’d be offered a variety of food. This time around, we’d be lucky if we were served every 5 or so minutes, if not 5-10. In addition, all food minus the filets flavoring from the bacon was on the bland side as compared to very flavorful in the past. I hope it was just a one time thing which is why I said I’d recommend it to a friend. If they were to have an experience similar to mine, I likely wouldn’t return. We had a groupon so we saved quite a bit of money. However, for a $40 value per person, you’d expect much higher quality food and service.

A very average Brazilian steak house. The offerings were modest and the salad bar was small. The service was fair to poor as an example there were lengthy period when no food was offered and other times too many came at once. The waiter was no where to be seen which was problematic. He even brought us wine that wasn't ordered. Overall a 3/5 experience.

Service could’ve definitely been better and they seemed to have been understaffed so it took a while to get the cuts of meat I requested. Server didn’t really seem to be adamant with the carver about the meats I wanted and I overheard other tables requesting certain meat temperatures and weren’t receiving them either. Overall the food was tasty, the caipirinhas were great.

Buffet was mediocre.
There was less than 14 meats as advertised online on their dinner menu as well as on the physical menu at the front desk. Meats were all well done, non medium rare. The filet mignon was not filet mignon n overcooked n dry.

Waiter service was pleasant n ambiance was nice.

I got greeted right away which was nice. Our bus boy came rather quickly after we sat down which was nice. But it took awhile for our waiter to show up and we were in the back room with not many people. And what I didn't like was that he automatically put in his tip on my bill. I understand that being done for large parties but it was just my husband and I. I was going to give him a tip but not for the amount that he put. It is not like my husband put him thru a 25 mile marathon. We hardly talked to him and I also understand that he properly shares the tip with who he works with but I like filling it in myself, plus what if I did not have the full funds that included the amount of tip.
