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.

I'm Portuguese and I can certainly appreciate a good meal. My coworker recommended this place to me. I'm a New Englander. I like to eat good for a good price. I thought this place was too crowded for one. I sat with people I didn't even know. My husband and I want to have an intimate dinner and it didn't feel right with two strangers right beside us. The food was good. But the food wasn't in rotation enough. You can certainly get a good amount of meat, if you are willing to wait forever. This place is very over rated. It came to $165 for the two of us. We got one drink a piece and dessert. I have no problem spending money but not when it's on something that isn't worth it.
Meat lovers this is the place you should worship!!. Mouth watering desserts, great salad bar, delicious and tasting meat.
Good food for value, I went the first time on September 2006 and I am coming back this year, great decor and ambiance.
THE BEST OF THE BEST IN NEW YORK.
The ambiance is delightful. The food is one of the best of this type of restaurants that I've been too. The menu is normal to exotic. I remember squirrel as well as goat on the menu. I didn't care for either. The other meats were good. The salad and side bar was awesome. I don't think most people can eat $35 in food and I don't remember the desserts being included. It seems that they were seperate. Overall, a good place to eat.
Excellent for large work gathering, gourmet buffet truly is, and our vegetarian (no cheese) loved it. The service model is fast, even swift, high-energy. The food is excellent, meat-lovers will be in paradise, and the gourmet salad bar will pleaes the rest.
First, the service is impeccable. From the moment we arrived to the moment we left, the service was fantastic. The service was fast and friendly, and this was even on a Saturday night when they were extrememly busy. The ambience is mid to low lighting, comfortable tables and cozy atmosphere. The food was great. The only thing I would is that I would have liked to have seen more meat choices come to the table. Also, if you like your red meat medium rare or rare, be sure to tell your waiter when they come to the table to carve.
In a few words - Highly recommend - Outstanding meal, great service.
We took in the restaurant as a pre-theater meal. When I knew we would be late they easily pushed back our reservation 30 minutes. When we arrived we were seated immediately. When I was researching restaurants I was a bit put off by the $59.95 fixed price but in retrospect I can tell you it was an excellent deal. Our party consisted of 3 adults and 3 teens and there was something for everyone. The wine list was also very reasonable.
