Awful . If 0 stars was an option, I would select it . ! Got there at 8:52 pm before closing. Took super slow to get seated , forever for a drink , forever to get our sides , and so on the hostes that...seated us was rude , and for lack of better words, lazy . Took forever to seat us , then was a bit snippy , making a comment that clearly was directed at the fact we got there at 9pm . Then we asked if we could sit near the TV to watch the game. She replied was not possible. Then we noticed there was a TV close by the hockey game was not on, we asked if you can turn it on she said, I don’t think so. I will let you know. She never came back. HOWEVER the cooks serving our meat were AMAZING!! Respectful , and quick . Would I go there again ? NOOO !! At that price , the service was truly UNACCEPTABLEMore

Way too expensive now. Not worth the money at all. No more salad bar! Rushed. Didn’t get our fill because you need to wait forever to get food. Will never be back

Huge disappointment. We used to go there regularly before the renovations. Just went recently and will not be back. Removing the salad bar was a huge mistake since the staff cannot keep up and forgot to bring several items. The wait between meats was a...joke especially since they give you a time limit on your table. And the jump from $50/person to $85 is a absolutely ridiculous.More

It’s a Brazilian steak house and I Brazilian, so let’s start from the beginning, short on staff, rude service crew, I never in my whole life been at a poor steak house like this, no salad buffet, no big variety of steaks, no linguica (sausage),...no chicken heart, no potato salad, no fried polentas, they served 5 different meats and 1 chicken. To be honest I live in USA for 8 years and I’m Brazilian and I’ve never been in a steak house like this before, they served farofa straight from the package! 70$ per person doesn’t worth! If you wanna save your money look for another place maybe cheaper and better! So sorry I came so happy today here as I’m on vacay but unfortunately it was a very frustrating experience!More

Our first time here, all excited having our reservations confirmed…….until we arrived and there was obviously some error with booking. We were seated after 5 minutes. No big deal, but we had no idea what to do. Meat arrived immediately, delicious and juicy, followed by...more and more. The only problem was the time spent watching everyone else get served and only two from our party of four served. Each time we we’re told they’d be right back, they weren’t. At one time we waited 20 + minutes for more meat, and you only get a small slice each time. Our Sons are big boys, 6-5 and 6-2 with frames to match. We had told them how much fun and food they would have……my eldest came home and made toast! The Manager came and asked us after almost an hour how the food was. When we told her we were underwhelmed with the service and lack of food, she immediately made it happen. But, after an hour of sitting and only eaten about eight ounces of food, we were deflated and done. 👎 $350 for four on a 17th birthday, not impressed at all and the place was half empty Will not be back, and certainly not recommended this place. I guess their main clientele are tourists, so they’ll be gone after a few days. I was served pineapple three times, but I went for the bbq experience not fruit We tried ordering from the menu, the rice dishes were unavailable, the skewers didn’t arrive at all. The sides arrived sporadically, one Caesar salad for four adults, it just seemed off. I’m sure the staff know what’s happening there, I’d give this place a miss, maybe try BrasaMore

We visited for an early sitting at 5:30, as soon as we sat down, before we could even order drinks or sides the meat was being offered, and it kept coming. We attempted to tell them we wanted to wait till we got our drinks...and sides, this was not respected. We felt very rushed, and the restaurant was not full. We finally got our sides in random order, and some not at all, the meat stopped, we had a hard time getting the cuts we requested. For the amount we paid for dinner, the execution of this meal was way off and less enjoyable. Dinner felt very rushed and hard to enjoy. Not sure if I would return. On the more positive note , our waitress was great!More

We visit this place for dinner whenever we are in Niagara Falls, OR WE USED TO. So on Saturday, September 2, 2023, a group of 4 (two couples) went to the (newly renovated) restaurant for dinner. It was a HUGE DISAPPOINTMENT!!!. To begin with, the...music is blasting unreasonably loud to the point where conversation is impossible. What is the idea? We were seated on the patio to try to escape it, but then a DJ set up right by our table and the noise was worse than ever. The former buffet is replaced by a confusing order system that kept the food arriving in a herky-jerky manner. We could never enjoy any dishes together; each was eaten as it arrived with long intervals. The meats were very intermittant as well, with some varieties never arriving, even if requested. Hand-signaling to server was ignored. :) The waitress seemed skittish, and kept away as through she knew things were ragged, but there was nothing she could do about it. To top it off, the gratuity was automatically added to the check, even for a party of four. (I suppose this is because tips were trending down for the waitstaff in these circumstances.) In summary, a fine place has gone to seed. Some new management turned a fine establishment into less than mediocrity. Just stay away and save yourselves the aggravation. That's what we plan to do.

I’ve been coming to this Copa since 2007 in the summer. Best patio and food, had live music and dancers as entertainment. And that food! When I saw the new price I was worried there was no way the new place or food could match...the value. I took some friends who have all come with me in the past decade I’ve been going. They all agreed the value is still dead on because the food, the design and atmosphere, heck there was a live DJ! See my pictures. The food was still many of the recipes we loved but just elevated and even more indulgent was the optional menu items. The creativity! This pork belly we had (and had to instantly reorder) was Smokey crust crispy fat on the outside and tender and flavourful to the max on the inside. The DJ was so much fun our whole area was dancing our whole meal, and then the traditional Brazilian dancers came out too. Was the fun night we had hoped for, worth every dollar and the new hotspot Favella upstairs was a younger cooler crowd then I’ve ever seen at Copa - making the whole night more fun and filled with positive energy. If you haven’t been it’s and experience as much as a meal, do it.More

This used to be my favorite restaurant to celebrate birthdays or out of town death Etc that says to every modeled and since covid the place went totally downhill. Used to have a great sides bar and now you have to order them individually the...price went through the roof and the cost for the Brazilian dinner is now $85. And unless you know what they should be serving you you could sit there for 4 hours and still only be offered three different Meats instead of the 10 plus that they actually have. The music is so loud you can't speak to the person at your table. There is no menu so if you can't use a QR code scanner you're out of luck they don't even have a backup menu to hand you. The worst part of this experience was that on my way back from the bathroom there was so much grease and meat all over the floor that I didn't notice that I fell very hard and it was like everyone turned their head except other guests that were dining. I was on the floor in tears for half an hour before any staff member finally came over. Her idea of taking an incident report was just asking me my name and phone number I was told that the manager would call me the next day and of course no call came. I couldn't walk for a week after my fall. Although they removed the cost of our dinner for the incident they still charge just for the ridiculously priced one drink each that we had. The manager or so-called manager was a 20-something year old girl in Tights who did not know how to handle the situation at all. You have to park and walk at least a block and still pay to do so at a premium price and while you're dining you're having to Listen to Night Club music from the '90s at such a decibel that you cannot even begin to speak to the person you are with. Also it's mostly bench seating now and you feel like you're dining with everyone else there's no private tables really to speak of. Why they spent all that money on reservations just to make the place worse is unrealMore

Wow, this was an awesome night. The reno on the Copa is beautiful. The food was amazing. Sure some of the staff was in training but all the same still very attentive and very pleasant. We live in a tourist town and they hire qualified...students. Most kids in Niagara paid for there schooling thru restaurant jobs. I think some of the comments I have read are unfair and ridiculous.

Trying new restaurants is one of our favorite hobbies so it takes a lot to leave us impressed. This one did it. Without an actual parking lot, the experience begin with a slightly-disarming drive to an off-site lot following a white van (not unlike an...airport shuttle) that takes guests back to the front door. Yet once inside, everything is right. Not only are the meats cooked to perfection, but they're prepared with unique flavors that had us anticipating what would next arrive at the table. Even the sides and desserts were flawless- my wife declared the meatball to be one of the best things she'd ever eaten in her life. Unlike other rodizios, the pace here is more relaxed and methodical. Sides and breads took some time to arrive and the meat portions were smaller than those at some of our other favorite Brazilian steakhouses. This worked to our advantage because instead of filling up in ten minutes, we remained ready for more for a good 30 minutes or so, allowing us to savor the flavors and experience. And like other rodizios, everything is unlimited. In the Niagara Falls area, this is not going to be the cheapest option, but it's one not to be missed if you're looking for an outstanding meal. It may very well be worth a seven-hour drive from New Jersey (I'm not joking).More
