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.

Plataforma is always a wonderful experience. The meats are seasoned to perfection and the drinks and desserts are delicious!

Many precautions appear to be in place due to Covid.

It's the experience that makes this restaurant great and we will be back.

One of the downsides includes sporadic service (sometimes it's great and sometimes suspect-both the guys with the meat and the support staff).

But then there is the exceptional waiter or host--when they ask you "what meat you are looking for" and they produce it in a timely fashion. That is awesome.

Some meats are not cooked all that well or too much...but then you simply pass--there's more that enough to eat.

The salad bar is underrated--it's got great stuff on it. And the fried bananas are the best side dish.

This is a place to go for a cool experience if you haven't been to a Brazilian steakhouse before. The food was okay but overpriced (unless you are someone who can eat a TON of food).

Enjoyed my meal at Churrascaria this past weekend. Service was attentive, meat selections were plentiful, even during lunch. Meats were perfectly cooked and seasoned. Salad bar was replenished often. Will be back for sure!!

Food was amazing. My personal favourites are beef rib, prime rib, and lamb chop. The parmesan pork and bacon wrapped turkey are a little dry. I didn’t like the sirloin and NY strip much but I think that’s because of the cut I got. The salad bar has a good variety including cocktail shrimp and mussels. For the sides, vinaigrette is highly recommended. It is so refreshing after you had so much meat. The fried banana was good. Cheese bread comes with the table and it was addictively good.

Service was good. We were being served very regularly, and after we told them it was our anniversary, they gave us complimentary cheesecake and champagne.

Live jazz music at night, a kid friendly restaurant. I would recommend this place for a date night, special occasions, or when you just want a meat diet.

We had a great birthday celebration with a friend. A bit noisy, especially if you sit near the (excellent) band. Servers were exceptionally friendly, food was excellent.

We made a reservation for 9pm and didn’t get seated until 10:30 ON VALENTINES DAY. They overbooked and we had to wait in line for 50 minutes just to get a beeper to wait even longer. Then they ran out of beepepers so we had to wait in a separate line for beepers after checking in. It was a hectic and stressful experience and took away from our special valentines night.

Carlos Deleu our waiter made the night special !! He was amazing & deserves a raise !!
Ricardo who calls to confirm your reservation needs to learn how to talk to people . His attitude is terrible, the way he speaks to customers leads me to believe no one knows about his professionalism!! I was appalled & this needs to be addressed!!

Place was great & conveniently attached to the hotel (Belvedere) that we were staying at. Thought it was a little pricey (even for New York / Valentines Night), but in any case we gorged ourselves and had an awesome evening before taking in a show

It was my first time my girlfriend and I went to any Brazilian steakhouse and Churrascaria Plataforma did not disappoint! As soon as you flip your dinning chip to the green you are greeted to a plethora of meats from various staff. All of the meats provided were excellent besides the lamb, I'm just not a fan of that particular meat though.

The service was fantastic and I would highly suggest this steakhouse! Just be sure to have an EMPTY stomach if you want to get the full value out of your meal.

I used to go there and hadn’t been in at least 2 years when my daughter asked if we could go for her birthday. The place is still ok and the staff is nice. The buffet is also decent. I did find that the selection of meats offered was not great though. The ambiance was just ok, we went on a Thursday evening. The meal was quite expensive, as expected, however I thought the quality was not worth it. I would not go back anymore.

Everything was on point.

Got seated for our reservation within 5 mins on a busy Sat evening.

95% of the meats were juicy/tender/delicious.

It's on the pricier side but all in all another great experience here.

Birthday dinner and restaurant week. The service was excellent and so was the maitre d, Carlos who was attentive and courteous. Food was delicious, especially the salad bar. Temperature of meats were an issue as they kept saying medium rare but it was nearly raw on some hunks. Think the restaurant week gets overwhelming but those meats are going to regular menu customers as well and food should not suffer. Some meats could use more salt or flavoring, except parmesan pork. That was super tasty. We will be back.
