    I brought my girlfriend here for her birthday but was disappointed with the experience. The grill master idea is interesting but waiting for them to come became tedious especially when we were waiting with our side salads and no meat. Having to pay for water is a major turn off. Our table had barely any light so we pulled up the blind. A table candle/light would have been good. The waitress was pleasant but a little robotic in her approach. Walking up to the buffet was slightly awkward with everyone's tables and felt a little bit like a cheap hotel. I spent $125 on this meal which is a lot of money for me and was really disappointed.

    Pampa was amazing and very much on par with Brazilian steakhouses I have been to in Brazil. Amazing food (everything I put in my mouth was nothing short of delicious) and it was just fantastic. The ambience was lovely too. The only thing was that it was rather pricey, it would have been nice if dessert may have been included with dinner too as with wine it ended up being quite an expensive meal, especially with wine, for what is effectively an amazing buffet type set up. But other than that, it was awesome and I would definitely go back. Excellent food and service.

    We recently dined at your establishment and I cannot tell you enough just how much we enjoyed the food and the service. We took our dear friends out for a 1 year anniversary celebration and they thoroughly enjoyed the dining experience. Our server made a recommendation on a wine that we will now search out as it was one of the best I personally have had. The salad bar was beyond our expectations, there was a good variety of items for all... and the deserts... between the 4 of us we ate 6 deserts! All were fantastic. Thank you for our excellent dining experience and we definitely will not hesitate to come back!

    Recently went here. OK not spectacular, probably once in a while, not on a repeat basis. Meat was great, the rest not so. Stick to a salad bar and do the rest to justify the $50.

    The last time we went to Pampa we were so impressed with the food. This time I couldn't wait to have the garlic steak, which was not even close to as good as it was before. The other meats were the same as I remembered. The salad and hot food bar was also suboptimal because the lettuce was wilting and one if the hot dishes were empty and didn't get refilled very quickly. I enjoyed our time there but I won't be rushing back too soon.

    The bbq didn't taste as good this time we visited. The meat was too salty and the buns were overcooked (took a long time to get our second order, which was inedible and then they brought more that were still overcooked.) I definitely didn't eat $50 worth of food this time. I booked as an anniversary meal, and the restaurant called back to confirm and said that they usually offer an anniversary cake. Because I am gluten free they said they'll look into if they can do something else for dessert. When we actually went to dinner, they offered nothing for our anniversary dessert at all.

    Pampa is a great place for an evening of good conversation and exceptional food. The aroma as you walk in hits you and instantly your mouth starts to water. Our server, Casey was very attentive and super friendly. My parents, who are not "adventurous eaters", loved the different items at the salad bar as well as the variety of endless grilled meats served right at our table. The meats were grilled to perfection with a minimal amount of seasoning just to enhance the char flavour. There was a guitarist/singer who was playing as you walked into the lobby/bar area. The music was heard all throughout the restaurant. My family had a wonderful time at Pampa and will be returning with our next visit to Edmonton.

    We had a good time. The waiters who brought the different choices around were wonderful. The fact that the only average drink on the menu was water and they charge more than anyone should pay for water set a poor standard. Otherwise I would say we absolutely got what we paid for. FYI the menu says juice but you get a smoothee. (Not nearly as refreshing with a meal).

    I booked a table for 3 at 7 in which our table was ready to go when we arrived on time. The food was very pleasant and tasty. The meat was beautiful. Some of the items at the salad bar where just a bit too cold for my liking tho. Another issue was the price of the alcohol. If you are with a group grab a few drinks before you go. I ordered two drinks and it came too 25 dollars 😁 yeah... They where ready good tho. The best tasting meat was probably the sliced steak. Tested and melted like butter. Will return with my meat lovin boyfriend

    We came here with gift cards from our wedding and as a special treat for my husbands Birthday. The food was amazing but we found it hard to get to try everything as it seemed the same 5 dishes came around a lot but the other 6-7 were hard to find. The food was delicious none the less and our server was amazing! Wish we were able to eat more!

    Definitely a place to go with an appetite. Try a bit of everything at the salad bar, but save room for the actual meats! Everything was cooked well, service was polite and friendly. Love the cheeseballs that are served warm (they come with the meal). I can't even say what exactly I liked - I thoroughly enjoyed it all!

    I dine here with business clients... probably the nicest dining location in downtown Edmonton... but I used this time for a special family gathering.. which included young men with voracious appetites... the salad bar is great but the food is endless.. it makes for a simple dining experience as there is just the one fee,,,, but it will cost you so it is not the place for a small family or budget dining

    I was very excited to finally try this restaurant. I came with a group of 6, one being a vegetarian so opting only for the salad bar (he was sure it said online that this was possible). After we had all eaten and our bill came, it was brought to our attention that you eat all or none so he ended up paying $65 for a glass of wine and plate of salad. Our waiter was not overly friendly to begin with but the excessive bill was the final straw. The food was decent but I will not be returning. I would rather dine at Hardware Grill or another place in the same price range for far better food and service.

    Once a year, for the past 4 years, a bunch of us do a boozy, meat filled lunch, and Pampa is the perfect place for it. This year however, we all felt that while the salad bar was excellent, the quality of meats was not up to usual standards. Sausages had too much gristle, chicken drumsticks were greasy, beef lacked tenderness and flavour. The parmesan pork, while the best of the lot, was also not up to the usual high standards.

    A favourite of mine in Edmonton. Usually busy, res. are def. recommended. If you enjoy meat, this is the place for you. Servers walk around with unlimited cuts of beef, lamb, chicken and sausage to carve for you right at the table. The "salad" bar could maybe use a few more options in term of veggies, cheeses, dressings and other accompaniments, but the lack of plentiful choices at the salad bar just forces me to focus on the meat! Service is always great - if your plate is empty and the green chip is up (meaning "bring me more!" then the waiters stationed close to a cluster of tables ask which meats they can send directly your way. Less romantic venture because you're busy stuffing your face... go with someone who likes to eat meat!

    We decided to try this restaurant for our anniversary celebration. We were not disappointed! The buffet of sides was very well rounded with lots of delicious items to make your meal something special. The servers bringing the various cuts of meat were very polite and never intruded - the various cuts of meat were delicious - we tried nine of the ten offerings! One could end up in a serious protein coma if you didn't pace yourself. Trying just a taste of each worked out beautifully and made us feel we had not missed anything. Our server was delightful and did not hover but was there when we needed her. Her wine recommendation was very well received by my hubby - he enjoyed it immensely. We will return.

    I saw this restaurant on television when they were featured on Food Network. Then our friend have told us about the place and how it was so good and worth to try! My husband and i tried it on our anniversary and had a blast! The food was outstanding, out of this world and a great gem, be careful of the buffet and don't take as much because it will just fill you up and won't be able to try all the meat cuts! The service was excellent and our server took care of us and even entertain us the whole evening. I would recommend this restaurant to everyone we know who likes to try different kinds of cuisine and I think Pampa is the best! I would definitely come back for more and this restaurant has been added to our list!
