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.

Went here during restaurant week and while the meat was delicious, the sides and salad bar were sub-par. Overall not worth the price.

The food was very good, however the service was abysmal. We were staying at the Belvedere Hotel and had a reservation for the restaurant. When we arrived we were asked if we wanted a menu. What? Of course we want a menu! They asked if we wanted the buffet and we said no, we want table service. They seated us at a high table in the bar area. We were not offered water or bread. They didn't even give us silverware or napkins! Someone finally asked for our drink order. After we had ordered our food and had one drink we sat and sat and sat, no one came by to see if we wanted another drink or anything. Every time we needed something we had to flag someone down to take care of us. We waited a long time for a second drink and our food. I told my boyfriend we should just walk out because we were being ignored but he wanted his food. We finally ate and had to flag someone down to get our check! We were treated like second-class citizens and even though the food was very good we will NEVER go back. I believe it was the worst service I've ever had in a restaurant in my life, and I have travelled extensively.

This is the best Brazilian Steakhouse anywhere. I have been to almost every Brazilian Steakhouse in NYC area and none match the quality of food, ambience, and service of Plataforma. I live in Chicago now and everytime I'm home this is on my list of places to go.

The waiter disappeared the entire night for long periods. Difficult to get water refills and the bill. The food and other staff were great. Experience was good expect tiny cups of water with no refills. We had to ask another waiter for our bill.

C-P Brazilian Steakhouse never disappoints! We try to get back when we are visiting family in the NY metro area and are in the City! My 19 yr old loves it better than the chain Brazilian Steakhouse. The lesser cuts of meat tend to be the best, likely because of the fat flavors and all of the seasoning! There really isn't a bad beef cut! My wife loves the lamb and parmesan crusted pork! The service is spectacular and the food amazing. By the way, if you choose to fill up on the sides and salad bar, you won't be disappointed either!

I've been here twice, once for a graduation and another for an impromptu dinner with a large group (8 people). Both times the service was entertaining, fast, and overall great. You really get great value for all the food, the pre-meat salad bar is great - but don't fill up on it, which it's easy to do. All the meats were very good, and it's a treat to have it served to you table-side. The dessert cart was also excellent.

Churrascaria Plataforma really let me down this time after always enjoying it before. I have only recently begun to dine indoors, relying on restaurants in NYC to carefully check for diners’ proof of vaccination and their matching legal ID. The host at Churrascaria dismissed the need to see my proof as I entered the restaurant. If I had thought more clearly in the moment, I would have left. I surely will not go back.

We had Thanksgiving dinner and were Very disappointed. We will not be back. This was our 2nd time there. First time in 2019 was great. We loved it.

This time on Nov 25,2021 was terrible. They forgot to bring one person’s order of salmon until after we were almost done. They should have removed this from bill but didn’t.

The meat was not as tasty as last time and we asked for more rare lamb which they never brought back. The wine selection is minimal and too basic for these prices.

They changed the lightning too and the place felt more like a cheap restaurant than last time.

All in all hugely disappointing and not worth our $676 bill at all.

One person in my party is vegetarian and only ate from salad bar and non meat dishes. However, they charged the same $72/person that included all the meats plus Thanksgiving turkey and food…

Thanksgiving dinner. Misleading. Just another night at Plataforma. Luckily we were very much into the red meat and not so much for the turkey, but if you went hoping for Thanksgiving food you definitely left disappointed.

Made a reservation around 7:30pm to meet up with an out of town old school classmate but he bailed at the last minute so I reached out to a local friend and made the best of it. Food was fantastic but service was not that good. The dessert cart was never brought around and staff were in a hurry to close down the kitchen when it wasn’t even that late (before 10pm). Kind of disappointing. Place is a shell of its old self during the pandemic. Hopefully it improves.

We have been coming to this restaurant for years. Sadly the last few times we have been we have been beyond disappointed. I don’t know what exactly the reason is but there is a l laundry list of things that now have forced me, my friends and family from ever coming back to this restaurant. To comment on the service would be an acknowledgment that there was service. We had to ask who our waiter was, had to ask several times for him to come over and take drink orders, remove plates and offer desert. It was as if we were at Target checking ourselves out. As far as the food goes, every piece of meat they brought to the table was under seasoned to the point we had to ask for salt and pepper. This is their one basic function that they should be experts at and they couldn’t get this right. One of my favorite things about this place even though they had been known for meat was their extensive salad bar. Not only had the selections become more limited but each of the dishes were tasteless and unappetizing. For the money they charge there is little to no value under these circumstances. We will never go back.
