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 river Bârlad and its tributaries have cut in it the northern part of the Bârlad plateau, which sometimes is called Podişul Central Moldovenesc, a term that can be easily confused with the reserved term Podişul Moldovei Centrale (in English both translate as the Central Moldavian Plateau). The northern-most hill formation (edge) is called the Iaşi Ridge (Romanian: Coasta Iaşilor). Other parts of the Bârlad Plateau:
- Tutova Hills (Romanian: Colinele Tutovei),
- Fălciu Hills (Romanian: Dealurile Fălciului),
- Covurlui Plateau (Romanian: Podişul Covurlui), and
- Elanului Depression (Romanian: Depresiunea Elanului).
