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.

Lovely experience. All you can eat salad bar that included options not in a typical salad bar. Service was impeccable. Staff were immensely kind and thorough. They made sure we were stuffed and satisfied. I would definitely recommend and am coming back. We came for restaurant week and had a taste of each meat option. We didn’t have to pick one dish. Wish they had flan as a dessert but the chocolate mousse was still tasty.

We saw the restaurant on a TV show but it did not live up to the hype. Our expectations were so high afterwards. We were disappointed by the salad bar because it did not have all they advertised.Nothing but greens, different quinoa and couscous salad’s and the basics. The cocktails were pricey an amateur at best. A bloody Mary without a garnish??? When it came to the main course, “the meats” they were subpar, under seasoned, sometimes raw and sometimes overcooked. In all not worth the money paid. $160 for two for lunch and one drink each was definitely not worth it!!!

First time here in about 10 years. It isn’t what it use to be for sure. That said, I am now married to a Brazilian to I’m potentially much more picky about my Churrascaria vs 10 years ago! The salad bar was somewhat limited and surprisingly, we waited a long time to get served meat (usually you must flip your coaster to red to stop the onslaught of meat!), not a lot of variety and SOO much salt ... was dehydrated for days. Overall, not a bad choice if you are SUPER hungry and not that picky. Otherwise not the best value.

Service was great. I have been at this restaurant multiple times, but the last time was years ago. The food was not nearly as good as it used to be. The meat was just okay and there aren’t as many choices as there used to be. Everyone was very nice though.

Overall good experience, table was right next to the Kitchen entrance / exit so like eating in Grand Central Station. Had made reservations way in advance so seating very bad. Other than that good dinner.

We have been here many times and it is always wonderful. This time the food was good but meat selections were not as abundant as prior visits. The one server Fabiano was actually pretty rude to me. I asked for a sep dish for my meat and he told me no and then plopped the meat o top of my salad. I was less than pleased. Wait time was good. The cost check process was difficult as well to get our coats back.

Always control your check. They’ll overcharge you!
After 3 times at Fogo De Chao, we decided to try the “other” Churrascaria in NYC.
Our reservation was for 7:00pm, they gave us a buzzer and sent us to the bar area to wait for our table. It’s Christmas Eve, We understood it may take longer than usual.
At 7:30 (half hour later) our table was ready.
The staff wasn’t as friendly as the one at the other place and we immediately felt it.
The biggest problem was the check: one person only ate from the salad bar (we said that to the waiter at the beginning of the dinner), But they ignored it and charged him full price. Then, we had 3 caipirinhas but they charged us for 7 (!!!) plus 3 glasses of wine and they charged us for 4!
We had to send the check back 3 times!!!
Now, I understand that’s a tourist area, is this what they do in order to make more money? When we told the waiter about the mistake in the check, he wasn’t really impressed, he just said “ok” and left, without even a hint of an apology.
Bottom line? We won’t go back and will enjoy Fogo De chao

Had a holiday dinner with friends and we all waddled out with smiles on our faces from the food and service we had. Despite being incredibly busy (Saturday night, dinnertime, by Times Square, not a shocker), and me shuffling my reservation time from 3pm to that busier dinner hour, we were still given tremendous courtesy and understanding from the hosts at the front door. I was handed a buzzer when our table would be ready. It was about a 25 minute wait but I do not at all fault Plataforma for that delay, as I changed the reservation to the peak time of patrons at the restaurant.

Once seated though...damn! The meats were all tender and seasoned perfectly. The buffet options were all fresh. The caipirinhas were a great break from the very heavy meal, and the chocolate cake I had for dessert was awesome too.

This was my second time here, and I will absolutely return for a third time and beyond!

Fair warning though: it is on the pricier end of restaurants (think bathroom attendant expensive place, which this place does have) but the quality and quantity of meat and buffet food available are top friggin notch.

Haven’t been to Plataforma in a while. The meal was as good as I remembered. The live music was a plus. The service felt a little rushed at times but was very attentive. A great night overall.

The reception at the door was very cold and unfriendly, although the servers were very, very nice. If you do not want to eat meat and wish to rely on the salad bar, it is very disappointing, especially at a cost of more than $50 on a weekend night. It's likely the food is much better if you eat meat.

We had a reservation at 6 p.m and arrived 5 minutes early - had to wait an hour for a table. Hostess was rude, waiter disinterested. they only served 3 types of meat and chicken. The servers did not come around often. The salad bar was a mess and lacked freshness. We paid over$300 for a meal and expected better value, taste and service. I am convinced the reviews on this restaurant are not authentic as there is no way this place has a high rating. The location was good and the restaurant itself appeared nice but the service, or lack thereof makes this a place I would NEVER recommend to anyone. I have been to many Brazilian steakhouses and this one is undoubtedly the worst I have every experienced. After waiting for over an hour to be seated and then served by a waiter who clearly wanted to be elsewhere was disappointing. The website boasts of all the meats etc that are served. Deceptive and misleading. Beware.
