our "go to" place when we go to the city so eclectic such great food superb service you can't beat it
Be ready to eat all the meat you can handle,
The waiters and the overall experience at plataforma was wonderful. I took my father out for his bday and he was so excited to try everything but the little thing I liked, was the piano playing in the background just made the day a little more special for him. Thank you to the staff that sang him happy birthday with a cake. 👍
Very good steak. Great service. I went day for lunch, so it’s not crowded. Enjoy your meal!
Our friends and us had been looking forward to this dinner for some time now.
Us- MF couple mid thirties, Native NYers,
This restaurant never disappoints. It’s a no frills, pretentious-free environment that always delivers on clean yummy food and nice people. The service is wonderful as they really aim to please and make your dining experience a great one. Simply put, it is a place for meat, and along with a great salad bar offering and out of this world caipirinhas, you can’t ask for more from this charming place.
The food was excellent. The wait staff was very attentive. The price was reasonable all things considered.
As a brazilian, this place makes me feel home! I love there! Wonderful food, service and environment.
The last time we were at Churriscaria was over 12 years ago, and we didn't have at the time.
Now we have two kids (ages 6 and 9) and we all went to Churriscaria to celebrate my wife's 40th birthday. Despite the price, the atmosphere is kid friendly. And the kids don't get charged full price!
Hopefully, we won't wait another 12+ years to return.
Nice enviorment. Good food. Good service. A little too loud high volume on the music
We have been coming to this restaurant for the past 22 years, but this is the first time we brought our 14.5 year old daughter. She had a great experience!! We both enjoyed the salad bar, while my husband ate his favorite meat cuts:)) terrific as always with great service and attention to detail. Well done! And not the meat lol.
I have to say very nice place!! the service was great!! The food was good only problem was my husband and i like our steak well done the beef was not well done so we didn’t eat much of their meat they were all bloody med red!! for the amount of money we paid it’s sad we were not able to eat and enjoy it as much! I recommend them having coasters with a sticker stating well done. Other than that I recommend my friends and family to visit this restaurant!!
I enjoy going out to restaurants that caters to the customer’s needs. I love the atmosphere and ambiance is why I picked this place as well as the good variety of meats. My wife loves the garden variety salad bar. Very lively place.
Overall, Plataforma is a good experience, with a nice array of meats, decent salad bar, and side dishes. The quality has gone down over the years, yet the prices continue to rise; so the value is just not there anymore. Tiny $16+ Caipirinhas, prepared table-side as a gimic, give an idea of how the restaurant is sold to tourists -- basically an expensive all-you-can-eat fest that is worth doing once. The meats were generally good, but some cuts were especially dry and tasteless. Fogo de Chao is slightly better at this point, although just as expensive.
Tasty flow of meat. Took some wrangling to get enough ribeye, but once it came we were very happy customers.
Wonderful selection of food on the salad table and delicious meats, cooked to our taste. We were pleased with everything about this restaurant! We have eaten at other Brazilian steakhouse, but this one beats them all!
Everything was amazing .
Just like the real thing in Brasil. Fixed price all you can eat. Good quality and excellent service.
We had 4 people for dinner, ordered two desserts, no drink, and the total bill was $414. The person who paid in the party didn’t pay attention to the breakdown, but when we did the math after we left, this seemed ridiculous as per the website the dinner should be $66.95/person.
Little expensive but worth it as a treat as such good fun. Salad bar was impressive and real struggle not to eat to much. Meat was well cooked and excellent range of desserts. Impressive service.
Great food, service and awesome unique dining experience unlike a standard buffet. Loved the smiling faces of the staff.
The food here is amazing and the service is excellent. I would recommend for lunch only as the prices for dinner are astronomical.
We come here whenever we have friends or family in from out of town. The live music gives an exotic ambiance. The food is incredible and bountiful. The service is first rate. If you want a special night out, this is it.
Visited to celebrate Dad’s Birthday with family and we had a good time! Food was excellent!!
I would recommend if you are in desperate need for a lot of meat! But I am not sure if it is a good value.
All around excellent
If you love prime meats this is the perfect business lunch value in midtown. Take your time and enjoy.
Was the best worker ever
He made my daughters 9th birthday special
Best steak I’ve ever had!!!
Great Staff ... very attentive
Great Value, worth every penny!!!
We had 12pm reservations on a Saturday. There were 4 of us. We were seated immediately and the waiter explained the protocols for the meal. We were served drinks quickly and went to the salad bar. The salad menu was extensive and everything was fresh. WARNING: Do not fill up on salad as there will be many cuts of meat you will want to try. They served warm cheese bread rolls which were delicious. Then the meats came...one after the other. All were tasty and excellently prepared. The parmesan crusted pork and the garlic sirloin were especially tasty. The desert tray was impressive as well as the Irish coffee! A great meal and a great experience.
Let me start off by I go to Plataforma every year to celebrate my birthday (except last year). Last year we decided as a group to do the celebration at Fogo de Chao and I was highly disappointed by the service (or lack there of), the inconsistent wait staff, the low quality of meat and limited selection. This year the service was impeccable. There was never a moment where when I looked up and staff member wasn't asking if I needed anything. The maitre d Carlos was on point with everything from the food requests to the desserts. Very attentive!!! The owner John even sent over a bottle of champagne to help the group celebrate. I will never go anywhere else to celebrate a birthday again!
Food is always great; tonight it was exceptional! Went to dinner with friends from the UK and it didn’t disappoint!
Good service 👍
Reservations system by the hostesses really needs to be managed better. Why book a reservation at all with special requests, if you're not even going to properly accommodate either of them? We always come here for our anniversary dinner and we like to sit in a particular host's section, just because we always have a great experience with him.
This time, we booked a reservation at 7:00pm with a request in that area. Upon arrival, we were given a buzzer to wait. We inquired why and the hostesses told us that there were 2 tables ahead of us and a whole speech about how they were a Brazilian steakhouse and how they can't control how long people were seated for. We saw the two other parties of 2 get seated soon, one of them sitting in the area we requested and we became frustrated. At 7:15, they called our buzzer and lead us to a random table all the way in the back where the large parties are held. Not only were we sat late, but this was not even close to where we wanted to be seated at all. We were very disappointed.
A few saving graces were that the section host did come by and to say hello, the host of that area was very nice and accommodating, and the food was exceptionally well cooked this time.
Please fix your process of seating and accommodating reservations. There's no point at all if you don't utilize the system at all and seat people according to how you feel that night.
Meat was tough, had to continuously ask for meat to be brought out. Staff was nice though.
Been here several times and will continue to come back.
Had high expectations for this place. Food was not that good, buffet selection good, slow service. Very limited selection of meet. Décor so so. So many nicer places around. Would not recommend.
Love the ever-flowing steak - super fresh, tender, and lightly seasoned just right! The servers are super fast. The live jazz band during dinner time is wonderful. Don’t miss it. And did I say there’s sushi too? I usually skip the sides to get full on meat but the potato scallops are to die for (located in the serve-yourself section). The Brazilian cocktail cart is amazing but it does pack a punch (they don’t scrimp on alcohol here). My favorite dessert is definitely the passion fruit pudding. Only definitely get it if you have room as it is an additional charge (not part of the buffet).
The food was very good the service was fast we normally go to fogo de Chao they brought the meat here very fast and more than at fogo de Chao would come back definitely
