I came here with a friend and was treated to a great experience. The meats were very delicious and I left a satisfied customer. I will be coming back soon.

This place is great. We have been numerous times and it never disappoints. For those who aren't familiar, these Brazilian Churrascarias server all-you-can-eat cuts of meat, along with a selection of sides and a salad bar buffet with additional items on it such as scalloped potatoes, soups, etc. The atmosphere of Plataforma is energetic, and it's set up like one...

Typical style for Churrascaria. Good location. The restaurant is kind of cavernous and thus a little loud. Service was good once the food started coming; the bar is a little slow (albeit the crowd was big). Decent for a larger party; would not recommend for a more intimate affair

Come hungry. It's hard not to over-eat at this place. They just keep bringing delicious food to your table. The salad bar is a great starter but I imagine you have to be a meat eater to really enjoy this place. They don't walk around with it but they will bring you chicken hearts if you ask for them. It...

Went there at 9.30pm, short wait for the table. What I can add to everything already written is that in the start I got alot of well done meat, something I dont prefer. I quicly learned that all pork was a bit dry so I skipped that; was disappointed over some overcooked sirloin but than things went in the right... More

We were a big group. We ordered a prix fix which it was overpriced in my opinion. Food was bland and just regular. Nothing special. The server didn't really have us a chance to enjoy the food since they were just serving like if they were on a rush even though we had the stop sign on. Food was cold... More

What an enjoyable experience! We had reservations for 530 on a Saturday night. Perfect time... not too crowded. The service and food were over the top! The meat is sliced at your table. It all melted in my mouth! The salad bar was out of this world. I really could have just eaten the crab all night. I really can't... More

Description
Churrascaria Plataforma 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. Winner of Three Consecutive NYC Health Dept "Golden Apple Award".

Staying in Midtown

Neighbourhood Profile
Midtown
This is the iconic New York that so many visitors imagine before they visit—spectacular skyscrapers like the Chrysler Building and Empire State Building, iconic public buildings like Grand Central Terminal and the New York Public Library, and the non-stop hustle and bustle of the city streets. Fifth Avenue is a shopper's heaven where you can find every kind of store imaginable, with fashion brands ranging from the affordable to the ultra-fancy. Visit the Rockefeller Center to experience towering Art Deco grandeur, and foodies will love the busy restaurants that stay open late in Koreatown. After dark, Midtown calms down a bit, but at any time of day or night it still feels 100% New York.
