  • "this was our second time here, and we took friends for their ann. Love the food and whole experience. We make it our go to special occasion restaurant to go!!!"

  • " We took a few Business folks from Middle East to dinne there and we were all very pleased with the environment, quality of meats and the supperb methodology of rotation serving different meats on the table. The salad bar is very good as well."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "Great meat selections, tasty salad bar. Friendly service."
    Dined on 8/19/2014
  • "For 50 bucks per person I think the price was a bit too high. Very few items on salad bar were actually appetizing. Green salad was literally down to few leaves with large stalks. The most important thing that I think was missed was our wedding anniversary request which the host called me to confirm if I was coming to which I replied with a voice mail that same afternoon as I was at work. I told to go ahead get the dessert platter or whatever they were offering but clearly this wasn't communicated properly and was missed which was very disappointing. The meat servers were very attentive and were doing a good job with checking if you needed some extra steak or chicken."

  • "Our experience at the Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse was outstanding in any aspect of service. Top Food selection, top Wine selection, fresh fresh fresh everything. All made from scratch and healthy. Service outstanding, very attentive and eager to serve you perfect. Friendly smiles everywhere. The Manager was going from Table to table and had time for everyone. We went before and had this wonderful experience and we will go for sure again and tell friends about it. Thanks pampas for a wonderful evening for my husband and myself."

  • "A like the idea, but the execution of the cuts and the seasonings are not gourmet. I appreciate all u can eat, but for $50, I can get a pretty good steak at the Keg, etc. with coffee and dessert it came to $150."
    Dined on 8/18/2014
  • "If you think you can eat $50 worth of meat, think again. My friend and I only liked about 50% of the meats we tasted and honestly enjoyed the salad bar more. And having said that, I was quite disappointed that the salad bar didn't have the rice and beans that Brazilians traditionally eat with their meat. I heard their lunch is more fairly priced. Maybe that's something to give a try before you dive into dinner here."
    Dined on 8/17/2014
  • "It's my third time back to Pampa and probably our best experience. The first two were great as well but this time we came with a group and it was outstanding. Eleven different kinds of meat were circulating tonight and each one was tasty and perfectly prepared. I love it that I can eat hot meat all night long, sample everything, then pick a few favorites. Pampa isn't cheap but it's not over the top either. You definitely want to go there when you're not rushed so you can enjoy everything they have to offer. Eating takes time, not because the service is slow - because it's not - but you want to eat as much as you can. Come hungry. The extensive salad bar is great too! It's all so good!"

  • "Amazing food!! Great for any occasion. One of a kind place."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Pros: Pampa has a particular model and they execute it brilliantly. You're presented with a good variety of different meats, all cooked to perfection, and it's non-stop. Bring a lively group. The servers bringing the meat cuts around are polite, accomodating. Tonight our server was Melanie, she was just wonderful. Cons: If you're the person who HAS to customize every dish, ask about every ingredient in every sauce, if you're that kind of pain in the butt - don't go to Pampa. They serve what they serve, and it's more than enough of a spread to make any carnivore very happy. Pampa is also one giant open room, and it's a special occasion destination so don't expect a quiet, intimate evening."

  • "Went here with friends for dinner on a Saturday night. Excellent choice of food, very friendly service. Best not to have breakfast plans the following day, you will not be hungry."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Four of us went to the steak house for supper, it was very exciting as this was our first time. The service was outstanding and the staff was very attentive and super friendly. The salad bar was amazingly fresh with a huge variety of delicious appetizers. For vegetables they had broccoli and carrots, mashed potatoes with cheese and wild rice. The fresh hot cheese buns are simply out of this world. All the meat selections were perfectly cooked, seasoned and served hot at your table. Unfortunately, we did feel it was overpriced at $50.00 per person as well as charging for filtered water and unfortunately they don't offer just the salad bar."
    Dined on 8/16/2014
  • "Found it very noisy, and kind of crowded. Could have more choices of meats"
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "An amazing experience for people who enjoy a great cut of meat. Can't wait to share it with others, we'll see you again soon."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "I just loved the service of meat being brought around all the time. There was never more than a few minutes and the carvers were there. The meat was tasty and there was a large selection to choose from the salad bar. A bit pricy so we would only go there on a special occasion. The restraurant was quite noisy too. It was a nice evening overall."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "They have a great salad bar. But their meat is still what everyone goes there for. Only real complaint is if you don't like rare meat don't expect to get a lot, everything they cut is rare and when they do come back with well done it's more chard then anything."
    Dined on 8/15/2014
  • "This was our first time dining at Pampas and loved the experience. I have recommended the restaurant to family and friends."
    Dined on 8/14/2014
  • "I would have preferred more cubes like the chicken and pork which allowed me to savour the taste in four or more bites, rather than the very thin slivers of meat on the dagger which were barely two bites. I realize I could have stayed longer and eventually had more dagger meat but by that time I did not want to have any more of the salad bar and don't enjoy meat just by itself. Unfortunately I can not eat bread. I did enjoy the evening and so did my dining partner."
    Dined on 8/13/2014
  • "Expensive but totally worth it. Food is fantastic and the whole dining experience is an amazing experience!"
    Dined on 8/12/2014
  • "I was appauled that it took the waitress 25 minutes to come back to the table after she cleared our plates. I wanted dessert and didnt grt any because it simply took her three times the time it should have to do anything. We had to ask for water 3 times before she brought it to us before the meal. I dont understand hpw dofficult that is when she doesnt even have yo take food orders or anything. When I complained to the manager he barely even apologized and did not try to make it better. I will never go back."

  • "The dinning experience was unbelivable with the chance to try over ten different meats prepared in the Brazilian tradition."
    Dined on 8/10/2014
  • "Delicious food. The meat was cooked to perfection and very juicy. It was nice to be able to control when and what you wanted to eat. We had a great table right by the grill. A little crazy to pay for water because that's all I ever get at a restaurant and drinks were on the more expensive side. Just a little tip...don't fill up on the salad bar!"
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "Cannot say I will ever need this much meat in one sitting again even though it was very tasty."
    Dined on 8/9/2014
  • "It is fun to eat at the "meat place". But it is a bit expensive for an all you can eat buffet....Most of the meats were to salty for my liking."
    Dined on 8/8/2014
  • "First time at Pampas but not at a Brazil Ian steakhouse. Of the meat selection only one dish did not suit my palette, the rest were great with 4 of them.being definite recommendations. My only real complaint was that the knives provided for dinning were not proper steak knives and made cutting meat difficult. Meat service was excellent and all staff were brilliantly professional, something lacking in this city sometimes. I would say that we were left to sit a bit long waiting for our bill but I know that they were allowing us to sit and wind down after our meal. Though the wait was well intentioned we were ready to head home. A small gripe against an otherwise amazing meal."
    Dined on 8/7/2014
  • "I really wanted to try this restaurant as had great experience in same style in a different city a few years ago. You really have to be a meat lover and have lots of tummy room to make the $50 plate a worthwhile investment even when you are careful with salad bar. Also open area is rather noisy. Great Food and Great Service but sadly, I was disappointed we couldn't enjoy value for money. Great plus too is underground parking!"
    Dined on 8/6/2014
  • "Of course you need to be a meat lover to enjoy the visit.Food and service were perfect, especially our server Melanie! So glad to see mature servers with skills and good timing. I was surprised there is a charge for water, uncommon for our region.. I think for the price you pay to charge $2 a person for a glass of water struck me as ... unclassy. All else was fantastic."
    Dined on 8/5/2014
  • "The food was good and the service was great. Good or bad......the meet just keeps coming. This would be a great place for a group. We were so stuffed I think we should say no to more sooner. At first we were seated in a hallway but they moved us to a much better table without hesitation when we asked."
    Dined on 8/3/2014
  • "I really enjoyed the unique dinning experience, I didn't eat a lot from the salad bar, but I ate my share of meat, the only down side was the noise level, it made it hard to hear."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "If you are considering whether to try this restaurant or not, say yes! The food was well presented and prepared. Make sure you go with an emty tummy, because by the time you leave, you will be definitely gastrically satisfied. Great service, great food, a fine dining experience. Bon-appetite."

  • "For a guy that likes to eat, this restaurant hit a home run. Within 15mins of sitting down I was embarking upon a feast for kings. I will be recommending this place to everyone"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "This is my third time to Pampa. The food was excellent as was the service. Found it hard to visit with my out of town guests as it was noisy although I don't think that can be helped with the layout of the restaurant. I look forward to my next dining experience at Pampa!"
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "My husband and I celebrated our 16th wedding anniversary and wanted to treat ourselves and it was a treat indeed. The food and service were fantastic. A carnivores paradise. And the salad bar was full of delightful stuff too. We also had one of the light delicious deserts and traditional Brazilian Cocktails - amazing place and we will definitely go again."
    Dined on 8/2/2014
  • "Good place for meat lovers. Disappointed the ribeye was replaced with striploin the night we went and that's one cut we were waiting for. Didn't know until I asked later that it wasn't coming out that night. Hope it's not going to be a regular occurrence as it's their best cut of beef. Service is great at Pampas and they do try hard to please. Our waitress ended up too busy so had to wait awhile for dessert and the bill. Actually giving 3.5 stars. Would have given 4 stars if they had the ribeye or came around with the striploin more often before we filled up on everything else. I would call to see if the cuts you like are there before going so you aren't waiting for a particular item that isn't on hand."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "We loved this place the first time we visited a few years ago. Then, spring of 2014, we found the meat to be a bit chewy, especially for triple grade A beef. Figuring it might be because of kitchen changes, or a blip in the system, we went again for our wedding anniversary in late July, 2014. Well, the beef was very chewy again, except for the rump steak. I asked my server what grade it was, and he said as far as he knew, it should be triple A grade Alberta beef. I found this hard to believe, so they sent out the sirloin again, and gave us a choice cut. Same result. One alcoholic drink, one iced tea, water, and one desert with the meal, over 150 dollars? No, not worth it."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "a ton of food, a bit over priced - they charge $2 for water."
    Dined on 8/1/2014
  • "Not what we were expecting the meat was just grilled but no spices or marinade was added it was kind of blend. If all you want is just meat that's ok, but I can do that at home, I wanted something different I didn't get that. Really not worth the money."
    Dined on 7/31/2014
  • "This was our first visit to Pampa, and we were not disappointed! The food was excellent, the salad bar had a spectacular variety (the gentleman that was refreshing the salad bar did an amazing job of keeping it stocked and tidy), and the service from the entire team (including what appeared to be a manager) was attentive and efficient. My only word of caution is for the ladies; if you are wearing heels, the floor is polished concrete and can be quite slippery! I'll wear different shoes next time ;) We look forward to visiting again!"
