Bârlad Plateau (Romanian: Podişului Bârladului) is a geographic area in E Romania. It is the south central part of the Moldavian Plateau. Although occasionally has heights over 500 m, it is generally sloped from north at 400 m to the south at 200 m.

The northern-most hill formation (edge) is called the Iaşi Ridge (Romanian: Coasta Iaşilor). Other parts of the Bârlad Plateau:
