Brazilian Steakhouse
Churrascaria Plataforma Brazilian Steakhouse is a Rodizio style restaurant. Rodizio is a method of serving meat that originated in the south of Brazil in the early 1800's. The concept is to serve a wide variety of different cuts of beef - sirloin, baby beef, top round, skirt steak, short ribs, brisket, rib eye; pork - ham, pork ribs, sausage, pork loin, suckling pig; chicken - chicken legs, chicken hearts; turkey - wrapped in bacon; lamb, fish, etc. in succession, to each diner individually right at their table. A meal typically begins with a trip to the gourmet salad bar, which features a variety of vegetables and composed salads in addition to four hot dishes. We also serve a selection of side dishes at your table. The main course, the highlight of the meal, will start when you flip your coaster-sized "chip" from the red side to the green side, signaling the meat cutters you're ready to be served.

The total experience was excellent! My guests loved it. Their first time there. There was so much good food. The salad bar in itself was a meal. The meats, of course, were great. The service was wonderful. They really took care of us. It is nice sitting in a restaurant where people are not on top of you. We were able to have an intimate conversation and feel comfortable.

The manager was fantastic. We had been here before as it is a favorite but the meats this time were not great. Will come back due to service recovery.

I always have a great meal and a great time here. The wait staff was super accommodating, the drinks were delicious and the food was great as well. No complaints! A perfect meal for a group of friends who had not seen each other in many years.

Outstanding place, best steak house in NYC! Food quality is top-notch with many options at the salad bar, which includes sushi and a variety vegetarian options.

Perfect for business lunch, quiet to carry a conversation and the service was excellent too.

Highly recommend!

I have enjoyed this place and their food in the past. However, dinner on Friday was a major let down. The place, ambiance, and service is still intact but the food quality has deteriorated. I wasn’t pleased eating any of the meat as it had a distinct poor taste and smell to it which made it really hard to eat.

By far the best Brazillian Steakhouse that I have ever eaten at. The meat was fantastic and perfectly seasoned! The Ribeye was my favorite with the bacon-wrapped filet a close second! I would eat again!

Semplicemente eccezionale, per 75 dollari a persona avrete accesso ad un buffet ed a carne servita alla spada in maniera illimitata, sia il buffet che la carne sono di prima qualità, cucinati in maniera eccelsa. Che altro aggiungere, i camerieri sono di una gentilezza, attenzione e cortesia assoluta, e l'ambiente è molto particolare. Unica pecca è l'aria condizionata un pò alta, quando andate portatevi una felpa. Locale assolutamente da provare e da tornarci.

This was my second experience at Churrascaria Plataforma. It was my Fiance's birthday and we had an excellent meal. We love the ambiance and energy that the staff bring to the table. The service is on top of their game, always around with meat and drink orders. We really feel like family when we arrive and are greeted by the hosts. The food is amazing, and we really enjoy this restaurant.

This our very first time there and the place had a nice Brazilian vibe which we loved, salad and sushi bar was nice and had lots of delicious options, but our server was never there and had to call him lots of time, our busboys were the ones helping us out, also they were only 3 types of meat being serve on a Saturday dinner which is a bummer because that’s what we were there for 😒. Overall had a nice time but for the price it won’t be our first choice when we come back

Food is amazing, you have so many options to try in the menu! starting with the salad bar, which is a dinner on itself, you have Salad, sushi, cheese and many other options. Then you choose additional side for the table (black beans are great!) and the meat parade starts! you can try and eat as much as you like!
Fully recommended and excelent service!

There is nothing wrong about Churrascaria Plataforma Brazilian Steakhouse, but sadly there is nothing outstanding about it in comparison to other NY Brazilian Steakhouses. The venue itself is quite nicely appointed and luxe in a traditional way. These surroundings do deserve better food. The salad bar was decent, but there was nothing extraordinary in terms of offerings, presentation or flavor. The sides for the dinner that we selected were all right. Again, nothing surprising and nothing that made you go, “wow, this is a great side.” My biggest disappointment of the night was the meats. From chicken to lamb to sausage to several cuts of steak, not one selection made me go, “This is the best (fill in the blank) I’ve ever had at a Brazilian steakhouse. Nothing was bad, it was just average and I was hoping for more. My respect and thanks go out to the staff. Each server and host/hostess was professional and friendly.

This wasn't the first time I visited Plataforma, so my expectations were based on previous positive experiences. Sadly, this visit was very disappointing. The room was beyond cool, we literally froze through the entire meal. The meat was dry, and many of the meats other than beef didn't come out until we were almost done. Since I don't eat red meat, it was basically just the salad bar for me, which, had I known getting just the salad bar was an option, I'd have saved the money. And then, the following morning, I was informed that I was entitled to a 15% discount since I was staying at the hotel connected to Plataforma. When I went back to ask for the adjustment, the hostess acknowledged that I had told her we were staying there, but since I didn't show my room key, she didn't give the discount. Mind you, she never said anything about it when I was there, and I had no idea, but she did. The manager was there and with a terrible attitude, gave me $20 and said "that should take care of it." It actually was less than the proper amount, but I just wanted to be done with it, so I took it and left. Needless to say, not a pleasant experience.

Excellent in every aspect. It is expensive, but for steak lovers, it is worth it. Just arrive hungry to get your money's worth. Wait staff couldn't have been any better.

Been going here whenever I'm in NY for almost 20 years now. It's always a great experience. I especially love the live Brazilian music. Also, the red sangria is amazing. Just make sure to go hungry. The amount of choices from the salad bar to the meats are incredible.

This place has gone downhill. The food bar tasted refrigerated, shrimp wasn’t fresh, salad was withered and there was no variety with meats. The servers kept bringing around the same meat over and over again. I could have gone to a steakhouse and gotten a better meal for a better value.

Don’t waste your time or money, just for to Fogo De Chão or local steakhouse.
