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.

    salad bar was not as exceptional as I would have expected, but we didn't come for that. The variety of meats/poultry was 7/10, expected more in the beef and poultry selection. The waiters were very prompt and courteous at the table serving the selections of beef.The establishment is very bright and airy and the tables are not on top of each other which was nice. All staff were very professional. The one negative, at the close of the meal they did not offer the senior discount to my wife or I, even though we clearly"qualify", I did not make a fuss over it so not to make a scene in our group of six. All in all, a nice place which we will most likely visit again on special occasions.

    Service was great. Food was very good, especially the buffet. Most of the meat was good, although there were a few that we didn't care for. Definitely got our money's worth.

    We have been to Churrascaria Plataforma more than two dozen times over the past 20 years. This was not a typical Churrascaria experience. We went on the Saturday after Thanksgiving 2022. Service was non existent from the get go. We were initially seating next to a table where a belligerent (intoxicated?) male was raising his voice in “conversation” with his table mates and never shut up. We asked to be moved. We were assigned a different table. As we got set there, the maitre de told us we should not have been sat there and he sent us to our third table of the night. After waiting several minutes we had to waive down a server to ask for water and bread. The bread was “hard” compared with what we are used to. We next enjoyed the salad bar, and we’re ready for the meat servings. But no one came over to provide fresh plates. Eventually, one of the meat carvers told a waiter to provide fresh dishes, which he did. The waiter asked whether we wanted another bread dish. We said yes. It never came. Also not offered? Any sides. We had to flag down the maitre de to get those. Which took forever to arrive. During the course of the meal NO WAITSTAFF came to our table in their own. We needed to flag down someone each time we needed a fresh bottle of sparkling water. In the end, we provided a 20% tip even though it wasn’t warranted because the meat carvers had worked so hard. OBSERVATION: the reason our waiter was non existent is that he was told to bus (clear) tables. Yet, we were there after 10pm and there was no need to clear tables at that point because there was no turnover (meaning those tables went unused the entire time we were there). This was totally within the control of the maitre de, who should have focused on taking care of seated guests like us instead of setting up tables for the following day.

    We got to our table and the waiter had asked my wife if we wanted anything to drink and I was not there yet I was parking the car so she figured she’ll wait for me to come and asked the waiter to return in a few minutes. The waiter never returned I had to ask someone to take our drink order and once we got our drinks we never saw the waiter again. Never asked if we wanted refills and we sat with our plates ready for clean up for about 20 minutes. Other tables were getting serviced constantly but my table was certainly not. Then I had asked the hostess if they could sing happy birthday to my mother in law which she said yes they certainly can. I asked for the créeme brûlee cake and she wrote it down only for them to bring a lemon pie we never asked for. It was very disappointing and then when we get the bill my son who is 11 was charged the adult price and my daughter who’s 5 was charged the kids price so I asked the waiter if he could correct that so he changed the kids price to a “Junior price” of $67.95 which was more expensive than what was stated on your website of “37.95” when I asked him he said oh that’s only the lunch price. I am honestly so disappointed in this because we’ve had dinner there numerous times with no issues and last night was not good at all and the service was horrible. The food I will say was very good but the service was not. Based on that we are unsure if we will ever return.

    This is a typical (not a negative) Brazilian Steakhouse where men with big knives slice tender and flavorful cuts of steak, chicken, and lamb at your table. As long as you showed green, they came one after another. Desert (extra $) and veg we fine.

    I was waiting for a new glass of Sprite very long. The meat was good, but you only get one small piece, then you have to wait again. The salad was good too.

    The food was great and the servers were amazing! But I felt the service from the hostesses at the front desk could have been better. We arrived on time for our reservation at 7:45pm and asked if our table was ready. One of the hostesses (who was wearing a black open-shoulder design outfit) told us we had to wait because the table is not ready, which was fine—we understand that you may need some time to prepare. But when I asked how long it would take, she said she didn’t know and that everyone else were also waiting. Her tone was very rude and she didn’t even apologize. What is the whole point of reservations if we would need to wait? We didn’t have to wait very long (maybe about 15 minutes) but she could have handled the situation better.

    Be prepared to WAIT, and WAIT, and WAIT. What's the use of a reservation if you have to wait for more than 30min to be seated???? The food is amazing, great variety of meats passed around constantly. The side dishes are tasty and brought to the table promptly. The salad bar has a good variety and is replenished constantly. The service is clumsy, hard to get a hold of a waiter to oder drinks, deserts or ask for the check.

    Went for Thanksgiving since we were in NYC for the day. The hostess was accommodating bc we were late. (NYC holiday traffic) waited about 30 minutes after getting there to get seated,which understood bc again we were late. Once seated well the waiter we first had I hated the service he gave us. I ordered an old fashioned and the guy gave me a look like he didn’t know what that was. I had to explain for a second. He made me feel dumb. Then we didn’t see him, there was another waiter that came by to check in on us. There was a lot of staff. If it was the issue of them being short staff I would of understood, but this was not the case. The food was ok, not all that. Will not be going back on purpose for sure. I’m big in customer service and I did not receive the service I would of loved to receive from that type of restaurant.

    As usual, the food was terrific, including the buffet, all of the fine meats carved at the table and the fresh turkey! Also as usual, the service wasn't so great. There was no shortage of staff refreshing the bar drinks, but most others were slow to absent. 20 minute wait for non-acloholic drinks. They brought the side dishes 40 minutes after the meal began. We had to get a manager to send the dessert cart 20 minutes after the coffee arrived. The staff were all very nice, especially when they kept asking if we needed anything, but most of them never came back with the items!

    We could hardly eat enough to justify the cost and value. Also, the quality of steak could be improved - some of it was too well done and chewy. We were treated very well with attentive service so can’t go wrong there.

    Very nice dinner here; a carnivore's paradise! and All you care to eat! Great salads also, attentive service and delicious food. The chicken surprisingly held up as a star among all of the awesome steak and lamb they have there. Pricey yes, but it is not Golden Corral; It is fine dining. Did I mention it is all you care to eat
