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!).

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!

We really enjoyed our whole experience. The only thing we were disappointed with was the selection of meats. The menu said there were 14 selections, but we only saw 4 or 5 come around.

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.

The food is a great value, we used a Groupon so we saved a fortune. There is plenty of food, emphasis on quantity. You have to come really hungry, it is a ton of food.

I enjoyed the service and the salad bar but the meat had no flavor and was too chewy. The meat also just tasted weird. The salad bar was phenomenal but other then that it was okay. Also be aware that they charge you gratuity.

Was ok. Didn’t get to try all the 14 cuts, got a lot of repeats. The salad bar is nothing special and I got an order of calamari. It was good but the the rings were so small. A so so place. Not a place I will rush to get back to but not opposed to going back.

Half the time the server didn’t come to us.. they kept going to the richer looking families and we waited a while for our well done meats because everything they had was not cooked through my daughter ended up eating blood from them meat and was sick from it and didn’t want to eat no more which was a waste of money for me.. not coming here again

You have to ask for a menu. They just assume you will be eating Rodizio. Menu food is 4 stars, or more, so ask. Salad bar is 5 stars. 90% of Rodizio was perfect. Overall 4+ stars.

They didn't have the wine I chose so I picked a different one. Then we wanted another bottle of it & they didn't have anymore of that one. So waiter gave us an upgrade at no charge. And they were out of one dessert. I still had a Fabulous time & food was delicious!

The environment was not too shabby. However, didn't really capture the true Brazilian Churrascaria. Also, they said 14 meat selection but truthfully I've only seen 8/9 meat selection. The service was 7/10.

Things have changed since I was there last, and in my opinion not necessarily for the better. I brought friends who had never been there before and I raved about how great it was. I was a bit disappointed with the selection of meats - there were fewer than last time and several of the meats were never even offered to us despite the green card being up. We had a Groupon so it was a pretty good value overall, but I was surprised when they presented the bill and saw they had added a 20% tip, and when they charged my credit card there was an additional line for the tip. If someone does not read the bill they might think they should add a tip when in fact they have already taken the liberty of charging you for it. Might think twice about going back again.
