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.

Always love going to this restaurant, which is my favorite on the planet. Great ambiance, good service, excellent, fresh food including an inventive salad bar, and the tastiest meats!!! We celebrated our Anniversary and received complimentary champagne and a dessert to share. What could not be better!!! We will be back in March to celebrate our daughter's birthday, as we did my own just two months ago!

Especially good salad bar! Bit on the high side cost-wise, but we had a wonderful time. The staff accommodated an friend who joined us enexpectedly with no problem. Many of the beat items are not gluten free, as one might expect, because they are marinated in beer. That said, there was still more than enough choices.

I've been to Churrascaria many times, however my last visit was greatly disappointing.
I don't know if it was due to the day of the week, Sunday night dinner,
but it seemed like there was only about 4 selections that kept rotating.
I recall at one moment during dinner, my partner and I were in complete silence, no food and waiting for the servers. After about 2 hours, we just gave up and left rather hungry. The team and managers were professional as usual. Food tasted amazing, just lacked in variety.

Hostess was rude she was Hispanic I believe working Saturday Jan 6 she basically questioned me rudely and when walking me to my table I had a cup that I purchased from a Broadway show and she demanded to take it and I told her it’s empty she said let me throw it away and looked at me as if I lost my mind for saying no I purchased it.

Excellent! Took my sons to dinner and wanted a New York experience...it met every expectation and then some. The food was exceptional. Waiter told us not to fill up on salad bar, but was impossible because we wanted to try everything! Amazing variety, everything delicious. During dinner the meat kept coming and every piece delectable. Lamb and flank steak my favorites, perfectly seasoned! Waiters courteous, service wonderful. Will definitely be returning.

I went to Plataforma with my partner for NYE dinner. We already had in mind skipping the salad bar because we were only willing to eat all steak. I’m glad we did that because the salads bar was nothing to talk about. It is pretty average for a restaurant with the history and tradition of the Plataforma. Brazilian food is more than that.
However, the steaks were perfect. Every single one was amazing and cooked to perfection. The staff is very attentive and friendly. From the hostess to the food runners and bussers. The ladies who served caipirinha and the deserts were super friendly. Even the manager came to check on us at some point. THAT is what I call service. Congratulations Plataforma for continue being the best Churrascaria is NYC. Just need to review your salad bar options.

Very bad service !!
Ask for non pro items and this guy took out card and bring it after 20 minutes and till then nobody serving meat to us !! We ask for medium well and we get burn meat on top it takes for ever to bring drink and water !!

Very very disappointed I pick this over Fogo de chaos and it’s my mistake I think !!!

No manager came and ask for food or service or nothing all they care about is we pay before we leave !!

This steakhouse has an amazing menu and is a must try! The salad bar is so fresh and diverse, and the meats that come out for you to eat for dinner are delicious. The Short Rib is the best piece of meat I've ever had, but all of the meats are amazing. Carlos is the best and takes care of us every-time!

You have to LOSE the bathroom attendant. This isn't 1950, and believe me when I tell you that there is nothing more awkward and uncomfortable that a grown man standing on top you trying to help you wash your hands. Turning on the sink, handing you a paper towel, etc., all in an effort to get you to drop a dollar bill in the basket....this is sooooo unnecessary and I'm sure if you asked 100 men if they like that, at least 99 would say no. Hell no. Please, stop it.

A very bad experience. I have been to so many Brazilian restaurants around the country, this is by far the worse.
We had reservations but still had to wait 20 min to be seated . People that walked in waited about the same amount of time. So don’t wast your time making reservation.
The person that take your drink order , Carlos D, was not friendly at all. He took our drink order and that was it. No one ask you if you need anything. There are people that bring the meat and ones that clean the table. No waiter/ waitress, finally after seating that for a while and were only served meat once, I complained and was able to get the type of meat we wanted.
One gentleman that forgot to get his name , tallest one that served meat, was very nice.
By the way only restaurant in the country that charges for refill on soda drink, even trump tower or plaza don’t do that.
Absolutely not worth it.
I imagine most customers are tourist and only visit there once. Otherwise I don’t know if anyone would visit them twice .
By the way for a Brazilian restaurant, the salad bar was far inferior to others.

My husband I went here for Christmas dinner. We had 7:30 reservations and were seated by 7:45. The food was amazing and the drinks were good too. Service was impeccable. Highly recommend this spot. Also, there is discounted parking right down 49th st for convenience.

The rodizio was phenomenal. Plenty of options and each was wonderful, especially the top sirloin. The waitstaff was exceptional and they went above and beyond to make this a great dining experience. I also enjoyed the live pianist who performed as we dined. Overall, this was a great time and I cannot wait to go back.

745 reservation and waited over a half hour for our table. I had to stand at hostess stand and speak to the supervisor and still had to wait till 824

After we got to the table all was fine but I expected more from a place rated so high and costs so much.

Everything was great! But Jesus! After having reservations for 7:15 they seated us at 8:20! It was boyfriend’s birthday and I felt so bad that it started out so shoddy. They were seating people who came after us, without even as much as an explanation. Basically this one guy who walks around the seating area just comes by and cherry picks the people with the number or seating available, without checking the order on the list that the hostess had. Which is just pure mismanagement. He had the audacity to seat a couple who came in nearly 20 mins prior, instead of us, who have been waiting for an hour plus. I interjected and we got seated instead.

Once we sat down, it was incredible. The food was good, the service was great and we just ate to the brim! But yeah, it did put such a dampener on the evening with the atrocious wait time.
