Diner Reviews
  • "So overall this place was ok but we were not impressed that the desert cost so much for so little and the fact we thought desert came with the buffet. We wouldn't have ordered dessert if we knew it was not free. So in the end our bill was not Desirable due to the added cost"

  • "The atmosphere was fantastic, salad was excellent, the meat was exceptional. Our waitress was ok, she did not take our plates away so when we came back from the salad bar we had to stack our plates on top of the old ones. She did not give us quality checks so we had to wait awhile for other drinks. Otherwise we had a fantastic time. I just would not like to have the same server."

  • "smelled better then it was, the meat was dry and over cooked on several screws the salad bar was great some old items, like tom/cheese would be nice to have some fruit Server was way to busy for us, she had a nice smile music was quiet couldn't relax as there was no ambience to fill the air eat -eat if that's what you want for the $$"

  • "Pampa was a slight disappointment. My husband and I both love barbecued meat so were expecting to be wowed by the 10 different cuts, however we weren't. their house specialty cocktail was delicious but after that things went downhill. our server seemed surprised and annoyed that we didn't want to order the $75 recommended wine. (we each ordered a glass of wine instead). The atmosphere was busy and unromantic to say the least, although most of the patrons that evening were couples. The salad bar was good, but not great. Lots of items to choose from but no one dish stands out as anything I'd need to go back for. Most of the meat was very salty, indicating to us poor quality and lack of care put into their dishes. We will not be returning."

  • "It was our first time to Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse. Our round table by the window was perfect, and set the tone for our dining experience. We will return, but only on very special occasions due to the cost. The experience was above our budget range."

  • "The atmosphere was loud and very busy, you have to be in and out in 2 hours. The salad bar was fair at the best, the meats were ok. For what he had the bill was very expensive, would not return."

  • "I enjoyed my experience at Pampa, however it is quite pricey so I don't feel the need to return. The food was great, lots to choose from at the sides/salad buffet. The gluten free mini cheese buns are awesome!! I had the fresh watermelon juice and the Q water to drink, I know people complain about paying for the water, but I was aware prior to my visit, so it didn't bother me, the juice was delicious!! We did not partake in the deserts as were too full and at a minimum of $9, we didn't feel that the portion size fit the price. All in all, I am glad I went for the experience, but don't have the desire to return due to the price point."

  • "Came for my bday dinner with the hubby. Very romantic and cozy, beautiful design. It was quiet for a Thursday, I'd like to check it out on a Fri or Sat evening. Food was good, lots of choice at the salad bar, and the quality was decent. The guys with the scewers were awesome, always served the lady first and were a pleasure. Service was wonderful."

  • "The food was absolutely delicious.. Of the seven or eight meats I tried I loved all but one and my husband loved them all. The buffet /salad bar was delicious and we enjoyed everything but the potatoes ( maybe just not our style ) all superbly fresh ingredients with amazing presentation . Of particular note was the huge round of fresh Parmesan cheese! Service was excellent .:the best we've seen in Edmonton. .. desert was to die for and the the house specialty after dinner drink is a MUST! Overall fabulous . The beer, drinks and deserts are a bit expensive but the main course at $50pp all you can eat is perfect reasonable for the quantity and quality. Fabulous!"

  • "If you are a meat lover Pampa is for you! Having travelled to Brazil in 2007 I can vouch that Pampa is the real thing. This is as close to authentic Brazilian cuisine as you will find in Edmonton. Don't expect to be blown away by the décor-it's pretty plain and it echoes a bit but if you're there to dine you won't be disappointed. Skewers of beef, pork, chicken and sausage make the rounds frequently. The buffet is more than adequate although nothing special. Having said that the food was fresh and plentiful. Brazilians aren't big on their vegetables but if you're dining at Pampas you're coming for the meat. The roast beef is probably the best I've had in Edmonton and it really is all you can eat. Enjoy!!!"

  • "This was my second time at this restaurant, and it was amazing all over again. From the salad bar to all the different cuts of meat, you will definitely get your moneys worth. Just make sure you go in there with an empty gas tank."

  • "Really enjoyed the food and thought the meat was amazing. We did go for a b-day for two and think that we should have been asked if we were celebrating anything when we made our reso. It would have been nice to get offered a dessert, especially since the meal was so expensive. Don't really think that the same rate should apply to men/women. They pretty much decide what they are going to give you (he would cut me off the little sliver, not ask me if I wanted any more and then turn to my hubby and ask if he wanted multiple slices). It is not very private, super expensive and they don't cater to large groups (states no bill splitting and 18% grat). However, if you love meat, have lots of $ and are going with a friend then I would recommend it."

  • "We dined on a Monday night at 7pm the food was good as always. The restaurant was only about 1/2 full, but was quite noisy, but that is my only minor complaint. I wish the deserts appealed to me, but none of them do. That is all."

  • "If you want to experience a real Brasilian churrascaria you have to try Pampa. From the meat being coated in salt then cooked over charcoal to the salad bar with traditional Brasilian staples such as feijoada (beans) and farofa (manioc flour), this is as authentic as you can get without flying to Rio. This style of restaurant is quite different than anything we have in Canada. If the servers know your preferences for the types of meat, they try to keep you happy. When the waiter discovered my wife was Brasilian he had the chef come to our table for a visit. I have eaten a lot of churassco in Brasil and the meat at Pampa is of excellent quality and is prepared in a manner true to the tradition of southern Brasil."

  • "Good food but ridiculous prices. Wine was crazy expensive ($18 for average glass of average wine) and meal was overpriced. Can think of 20 restaurants that have good or better food for half of the price. The 'Brazilian' steakhouse concept is what you're paying for - the novelty. Been there once for lunch in the past - a much better value. Don't go there for supper!"

  • "What a great experience! The restaurant was packed on a Sunday night so be sure to reserve ahead. We were heading to a show at the Winspear with friends and this was the perfect place to have a great meal without a lot of waiting. The salad bar had something for everyone but for sure it was the amazing selection of meats coming to your table that was the highlight. It was hard to say no. The wines and specialty drinks from Brazil were also a highlight. The service was incredible and we had a great night out. I would recommend Pampa to anyone and an absolute must to any meat eaters in your circle!"

  • "The guys that served the meat went above and beyond! If we said wwe didn't want what they had they asked what it was we wanted and brought it right over! The server was good to, she could have checked in a couple more times though. There were 6 of us and I know some restaurants don't do split bills but we were all servers and from experience you get tipped way more when the server asks if the table would like bills separated."

  • "As much as we enjoyed the food our waitress did not tend to us nearly as much as when we last visited Pampa's, in fact our service was quite limited. However I was very pleased that my special request to write "happy birthday" on the dessert plate was fulfilled. And the food was exceptional as always, please do not stop serving your signature rump roast. Thank you"

  • "Exceptional Service. Very unique way to be served (brings back all my memories from the times I visited South America), as the meat is carved right at your table and you get to pick which cuts you would like to enjoy that evening. Recommend the Salad Bar very highly with all the delicious choices on it and make sure you get some of the sauces to go along with the meat cuts that are served right at your Table. The dessert is fabulous, so please leave some room!"

  • "This restaurant has absolutely phenomenal service! The servers are all very knowledgable about the products they have and the guys that have the meat skewers and insanely attentive - Your disc is barely flipped over and they are at your table ready to serve you . The owner himself is constantly floating around the tables, refilling water, changing table linens and serving customers - Amazing! The food is fantastic as well - So much variety and flavour - It is truly a unique experience! ."

  • "I took my husband for his birthday and he thought it was fantastic. The servers were very professional and fun. The manager came around an checked on all the tables, very pleasant to talk to. The grill master came and took Devin for a tour of the grills and he says he learned a lot. Just wish we could duplicate those bacon wrapped chicken at home."

  • "As a family with a body builder in in we eat very clean and is difficult to find a restaurant that can accommodate our diet. The food at Pampas is seasoned just right, not over spiced or soaked in sauces so makes for the perfect menu for us. Staff are always rotating to bring you the cuts you enjoy and the salad bar has a good variety of items as well. We didn't try the wines but the list is good also, leave room dessert, chocolate mouse or mango ice cream are recommended to try."

  • "The hostess, maitre d' and servers were very good: clear explanations were given to those customers who were not familiar with the concept of a Brazilian steakhouse. I found the cuts of meat done nicely, and liked the variety offered. A good chance to have some tasty lamb! For me, the highlight was the side dishes at the salad bar: feijoada, cassava: watermelon pickle, hot papaya sauce, ceviche, and I had a few helpings of that potato side order [with cassava in it]. Perhaps the hostess, maitre d' or server could explain to the guests what feijoada [Brazil's national dish] is, and also cassava. I'd like to see the hours extended a bit for the half-price special: perhaps one Monday-Friday evening a week, too?"

  • "This was a restaurant that my husband had wanted to try for over a year and I thought it would be a nice surprise for his birthday. Unfortunately, we found the restaurant to be extremely loud, the salad bar was quite disappointing and I was very surprised to see only four hot dishes provided which were extremely basic, one potatoes. one rice...(overpriced for the value) The servers who served the meat were quite good but our waitresses were not so good. We had to ask to have a refill on both our water, which surprisingly was only available for a charge, as well as our coffee, cream..."
