    My son had been to the restaurant about a year ago with his girlfriend and was so impressed he suggested we go for his birthday, a month before Christmas. The place was almost full. The room looked fantastic, nicely decorated for Christmas, but the noise level was so loud (energetic doesn't really describe it) I spent most of dinner asking my dining companions to repeat what they had just said - and I have good hearing. The salad bar was very impressive. And the little coaster at each plate - red on one side and green on the other - that signals servers when to bring around skewers of different kinds of meat was a cool idea. The first skewer of pork looked and smelled great but the meat turned out to be very dry and had to be washed down with wine. Not a great first impression. The lamb was amazing - tender and flavourful and so was the chicken wrapped in bacon. But this salty beef that they served up in slices larger than asked for (probably to get rid of it) was very chewy and salty. It was worse than the beef roast I had cooked up at home the night before and had thought was too chewy. That beef at the restaurant was so chewy and hard to swallow I could eat only two bites and had to leave the rest. I wasn't the only one at the table to do so. By the end of the meal I had a small piece of chicken wrapped in bacon left on my plate that I couldn't finish and asked if I could take away with me which the server said was not allowed and that they didn't have containers for anyway. Too bad because it seemed a waste to throw out. Overall I would recommend Pampa at least once for the unique experience but I'd have to say I was disappointed, especially after the build up it had been given by my son. The T

    Food is good and lots of it. We liked the variety and quality of the salad bar. However, we didn't appreciate having to pay for water even if it is for charity. We prefer to choose our own charities. Becomes quite an expensive evening. Won't rush back.

    Dined on 11/22/2014
    On arrival- we were kindly greeted by the hosts. Once seated our server explained meal service and our options. Personally do not find buffets favorable- salad bar was replenished well with novel salads, cheeses, olives, and a couple of hot items. I did not favor servers coming by with selections of meats throughout the night. It was disruptive to our conversation and much of the selection was too salty. The pork was over cooked and the servers presented selections of meat that were thin and not always prepared to our liking. The ambiance consisted of cement walls painted brown with steamed windows resembling a swimming pool. The wine menu was not updated and several options were not available. Given our servers immaturity we did not believe a reference to what she liked was appropriate and she pointed out wines that were quite over priced. This is not a venue for a romantic evening. If you liked buffets and people disrupting you throughout the night- I hear buffet royal is cheaper!

    Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse lived up to our expectations the second time around! This time, we went with our close friends and loved every minute we were there! We spent our 2 hour stay wisely.. The food was phenomenal! Service was amazing! Parmesan pork and bacon wrapped chicken are my absolute favorite. The pork just melts in your mouth! The last cut they served was the part of the cow's neck, it was divine!! One bite from that meat, I was in heaven. Literally! I would recommend Pampa to friends and family all the time!

    Holy. Where do I start? It was a great evening. Our server was fantastic, even though at the beginning it did take a few minutes for him to get to us. He was attentive, and his product knowledge was out of this world. I'd been there previously for last years birthday, but this experience really set the bar. I'm from the service industry and hands down that was the best service ever. on a 140 dollar bill, we gave him 40 dollars. He was so amazing.

    The food was great and the service was amazing. The only thing that could improve would be the implementation of a dress code; when I spend $300 on a meal for 2 people, I hate to see the tables around me in hoodies/scruffy shirts/toques. Other than that, this place was outstanding and we will definitely return! Great selection of wines, and knowledgable staff!

    Pampa is always great we and our guests have never had a bad experience here and will continue to be loyal visitors. Having said that, the fresh bar could use a little updating, but it still tasty as always, we would just like a little different variety.. See you again in December pampa, looking forward to coming again.

    I'm vegetarian, but my husband is not. He's been dying to try Pampa for a while now, so for his birthday, I made a reservation. Obviously, I wasn't keen on going, as I knew I'd be paying a lot of money, even though I wasn't going to eat any meat, but some friends assured me that the salad bar was great. Well, it wasn't that great. The best thing about it was the mint salad dressing. Everything else was sort of blah. I was excited about the asparagus and grilled eggplant and zucchini, but they were cold and flavourless. The fusilli salad was boring. I wasn't really sure if the mashed potatoes or egg salad were vegetarian--labels would be nice. I also couldn't believe that we had to pay for water--that just seems criminal. I know that you don't plan on having vegetarians come to visit, but sometimes we get dragged along by the meat-eaters in our lives, and it would be nice if you could offer us a reduced price. It's not like we want to be there. My husband's comments: "It was good, but I hate the fact that we have to pay for water."

    Our second time visiting Pampa, went again with the same couple because we enjoyed it so much the first time! Lots of meat choices; and the fun is having it come right to the table. Remembering to have our serving buttons at green for 'serve me' or red for ' no meat right now' created as much fun as tasting the ten meats. Lots of side dishes to choose from at the buffet bar. And of course, we had a great waiter!

    I made a reservation about three days before the Sunday we went to pampa for 6 o'clock. When we got there the waiting time did not seem like we had a reservation, our table was taking so long that the front lady moved us to the worst table in the restaurant, when we refused to sit there we had to wait another five minutes for our proper table....( only bad part) The great part was everything else, great food, great salad bar, great meat great experience over all.

    My husband & I recently dined at Pampa's Brazillian Steak House. Even though we showed up a half hour early for our reservation, our table was ready and we were seated right away. The staff was amazing! All were extremely knowledgable about the menu and wine list. We had 3 staff members making sure that we were well cared of. All were very polite & helpful. The salad bar was extensive and the meat was absolutely perfect - all 10 cuts! We have recommended it to many friends and we will definitely be back! 5 stars out of 5!!

    We loved visiting this restaurant in the US and thought we'd give it a try here. The atmosphere in the Canadian locations is upscale compared to their US counterpart and the price is doubled. The Canadian website suggests you'll spend $30-$50 per person but we found it's more like $50-$70 if you want a drink or dessert with your meal....yes they even charge for water:)...overall, a wonderful evening for my sons birthday.

    Food and service were great but being from montreal I feel like this is definatly not worth the money. All the meats were cooked well but lacked any kind of seasoning. Salad bar was just that a salad bar. So good food but at 145$ for 2 people I feel a little ripped off. Can get a better steak dinner in mtl for 20$ a pop. U can keep your brazilian salt

    My boyfriend and I went there for his birthday and our 3 year anniversary, and I can honestly say it was one of the most amazing dinners we've ever had together. We arrived with only a minute to spare for our reservation (I got off of work late) and were warmly greeted and immediately taken to our seats. Our lovely server came to us shortly after (I wish that I could remember her name, she really was amazing) and was thoroughly knowledgeable about all of the specials and how everything works, and even recommended her favorite drink. During our meal a manager came and dropped off some cheese rolls (which is a fantastic way to touch the table) and later to ask if we would like a specific meat cooked a certain way. Truly outstanding evening!

    The service was friendly and the room was very nice. The salad bar was average and a bit disappointing, the selection was not exciting and really not enough of a selection. There was a fairly good beef selection for those that eat red meat. Unfortunately, for those that do not the poultry selection was terrible, there were 2 choices both chicken and one was wrapped in bacon. We would have liked to see 3 or 4 poultry, one being turkey and if there is going to be two chicken choices they certainly shouldn't have any wrapped in bacon. For those in our group that did eat beef, they did enjoy two of the choices. Also, the kids loved the little cheese buns that were served.

    This was our second visit to Pampa. Our first visit was so enjoyable we wanted to return, however, because it is a little pricey we would only come here for a special occassion. Unfortunately, this visit we found all the cuts of beef except one to be tough and chewy. Very disappointing. At this point because of the price not sure we will return.

    We have been here about 4 times now and, being meat eaters, enjoyed each visit. The varieties of steak and other meats are excellent and hard to keep up with the service of them. Not sure what my problem is but I worry that something will go by and not come back... The only issue our table had was learning their sausage supplier closed their doors and even one of my sons, who couldn't make it, was disappointed when we told him. Guaranteed return customers.

    We went to this restaurant with a group of 10 following a weekend wedding. Originally I made a reservation for 6 but as others wanted to attend as well, I called the restaurant to change the number. I got a voicemail and left a message with the details but also asking for a callback. No one called back and when we got to the restaurant the two ladies at the front were very accommodating. However, one lady who seemed to be the manager was very put out by our change. She was making faces and grimacing. I asked if there was a problem and she said yes there was. They would have to set the table up and it would take a few minutes. My response to her was just that I had called and no one called me back. This attitude was unacceptable.

    Great service for sure! Lots of space! The only thing I noticed less meat then before, offered. Desserts are great but small! Expensive, don't go if you don't eat a lot of meat!
