Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse
I enjoyed the rump the most,I enjoyed the rump the most, the rest I could do without, just a personal preference. There were very few items on the salad bar that I enjoyed. Not very much flavour in the bean dishes. I have visited Pampa and really enjoyed most of the salad bar. Depends what they have offered.12/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMy husband and I went to PampaMy husband and I went to Pampa to celebrate our 2 year wedding anniversary. It was a unique experience. We have never been to a Brazilian Steakhouse before. It was the perfect atmosphere for the two of us. Our waiter was fantastic! He explained how everything worked and definitely went above and beyond. I had read reviews of Pampa's before and all the reviews said customer service was top notch and I couldn't agree more!
Two things that surprised us were there were no hot veggies of any sort and that you had to pay for water which was $2.00 a person. I thought that was a little steep, but I do appreciate that it is "special" water.12/3/2013 12:00:00 AMDelicious and highly recommend!I was recommended by a client and was very impressed with the food and service namely from the servers who brought out the savoury mains constantly. Will definitely be back and will definitely recommend it to others.11/3/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat place for lunch. VeryGreat place for lunch. Very respectful and attentive staff. Great food.10/4/2013 12:00:00 AMDinner was a unique experienceDinner was a unique experience and a fun change from the ordinary service restaurant. The salad bar was nicely appointed and despite the place being fairly busy, none of the items were lacking in volume or presentation. If you're expecting alot of Hot Starch foods for your entree, you'll only find 2. All of the meat offered table-side was tasty and plentiful. I found the beef was served on the rare side, which may be unappealing to some people, but the poultry and pork was done very nicely. There wasn't anything that dissappointed. I loved the meal. The waitress was exceptional; informed and knowledgeable about their offerings and appeared eager to supply great service. A little $$$, but I think well worth the price, for a meat lover.10/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time here but very enjoyableFirst time here but very enjoyable I would recommend it and would go back again10/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIncredible PlaceThe Food was totally Awesome and Service was Outstanding, well of course the Food was Fantastic, ate way too much but well worth it. Will be coming back with more friends to enjoy a incredible Experience.

The food was very tasty, you must go when you are hungry & can eat alot of meat!! Salad bar had excellent choices and the drink special that night was delicious.8/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAmazingFood was amazing same as the wine choices and pairings
Service was fantastic7/4/2013 12:00:00 AMTasty!Loved our recent dinner there. The salad bar had incredible selection, and the 10 choices of grilled meat being brought by the "Grill Masters" was delicious. The all you can eat aspect would make this restaurant ideal for starving teenagers, or professional athletes.
The place is well decorated in contemporary finishes, with polished concrete floors, white table cloths, and edgy but comfortable red leather chairs.
We brought two of our own wines, and the corkage charge was $25 per bottle.
Would definitely eat here again. This restaurant would also be great if you have a party of fussy eaters with varying tastes, as there is so much selection.
The passion fruit mousse for desert was delicious.
We highly recommend Pampas!5/19/2013 12:00:00 AMAwesomeThe food is really good. Especially all the cuts of meat they bring around. It's not cheap but the food and service account for the cost.5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat for protein loversMy wife and I found the salad bar great with lots of choices , we could dine well on that alone, but the fact that the ten meat choices were served on the night we dined made the experience very satisfying , we like that they come to your table and slice off your choices . I noticed a large wine list but can't comment as I don't like it , I have never liked wine. Dining area open with ample room between tables, staff very courteous and attentive .5/18/2013 12:00:00 AMSo very goodSecond time we have been there and it was as good if not better this time. The combination of great food and terrific service outshines most other restaurants in town plus incredible value for your money. We have spent as much if not more for less and left feeling disappointed but Pampa delivers, we will be going back with friends next time.5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMBest dinner of my lifeWe got to the restaurant and we were greeted by their friendly staff and promptly seated. The waiter was great, polite and very knowledgeable on all the dishes and customs. Then came the food, it was simply delightful, perfectly cooked and piping hot. My mouth is watering just thinking about it. The waiter was diligent and kept us going with refreshments and fresh plates without missing a beat. The chocolate desert with the star sauce was amazing as well. Thank you that was the best dining experience I have ever had5/17/2013 12:00:00 AMMay 16, 2013I made a reservation for my boyfriend's birthday, for 6 pm, we arrived and were promptly seated. We had Matt as our guide throughout the meal. He was friendly, attentive and knowledgeable. He helped me pick out a wine as well, that most definitely complimented the red meats. Five stars for him alone!
The salad bar looked lovely. We did not grab a lot of it, as we were there for the meats. We were not disappointed. We have been to a Brazilian Steakhouse before, but not one with Alberta beef. Everything was delicious.
If possible, show up around 5:30. The place gets packed by 6:30.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMThis is a great experienceThis is a great experience and fun place, lots of meat, so you need to eat real slow and pace yourself. The salad bar was really good and fresh. Beautiful win cellar, Staff was really friendly. Would recommend this restaurant.5/16/2013 12:00:00 AMMy experience at this restrauntMy experience at this restraunt was wonderful. I thoroughly enjoyed the process and the way the food was served.
I would have enjoyed more selection of the warm/hot foods. i found this part lacking a bit compared to the meat that was served.5/15/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat Meal with great serviceHad a great meal for my wife's birthday food was excellent as always and the cooks / carvers were very upbeat, took great pride in their product, and loved the live feedback we gave them, I would love to have them interact more with us beyond offering succulent meats. Note to other diners, grab a small plate of the honey balsamic reduction, we tried a few of the meats dipped in it and had some fantastic results5/14/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat MeatsThe way the meats are served means they are always hot on your plate. No where does it the same. Great for meat lovers but a good salad bar too!5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMOutstanding food and serviceIf you enjoy rotisserie meats, this restaurant is an excellent choice. It is impossible to pick a favourite cut or type of meat. They were all very good. The servers quickly remembered how you preferred your meat done. Also, when we missed a round of meat or wanted more of one type/cut of meat, our sever ensured that our request was filled. I do think we ate more signature steak and lamb than any other cut of meat, though. There is a good variety of cold items on the salad bar and we are never able to manage a taste of everything. We loved the mint dressing on the Arugula salad. This was our third visit to the restaurant and we will be returning soon.5/13/2013 12:00:00 AMProffesional , knowledgeableProffesional , knowledgeable and courteous service.

Will definitely return.5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMThe Real Deal!After having visisted a churrascaria in Brazil in March we thought we would compare it with a "Canadian" version and I'm happy to say it was very authentic! The meat was fantastic, the drinks very good, and the salad bar fresh. Can't wait to go back!!5/11/2013 12:00:00 AMexcellentThe food was unbelievably great, the service was perfect, very friendly atmosphere.

Other wise very good5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMGreat food and the meat justGreat food and the meat just keeps coming. You will not leave hungry. Servers were very friendly and made sure we not only knew what the dishes were for the evening but followed up later to make sure we had a chance to try them all.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMSo Full!My husband and I went for our 16th wedding anniversary. I had been wanting to have dinner there for over a year and we finally had the opportunity to go. The salad bar served up some tasty cold salads among other unique side dishes. The various succulent meats served came around to our table pretty quickly. They were all extremely appetizing. If I hadn't been so full, I could have gone for another round of bliss. The delicious cheese bread puff apps were so comforting as the melted in our mouths. I loved them so much that I'm going to try making them at home. I look forward to the next time we visit Pampa.5/4/2013 12:00:00 AMFood is top notch!I was at this restaurant once before and knew it was a little more expensive, but didn't remember it being quite this expensive. Charging for water and the amount charged was just too much! To say "No tap water". Really???
It was noisy and we found we had to speak very loud. However, it wasn't at the point that we were upset about it, just an observation we all had.
The meat was 'excellent'! The serving and explanation of the meats was excellent! The explanation of desserts was excellent and the serving of the dinner appertif was outstanding!!
All in all, it was a great evening out.5/3/2013 12:00:00 AMIt was greatThe food is good, the service even better. Hard to find in edmonton. We will be back.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMClose to the real Brazil thingExcellent food but not the full Churrascaria as I knew it in Brazil. The salad bar has no fish of any kind (in Brazil, it includes platters of shrimp, smoked fish, cold fish platters, lobster, etc.) and no dessert bar with lots of options, particularly fresh fruits. In Brazil, the fish and desert bar are both included in the meal price. Apart from these omissions, this is a worthwhile experience - it would be even better if it met the full-scale Brazilian model I have experienced on many occasions in Sao Paulo.5/2/2013 12:00:00 AMMust love MeatWe really enjoyed the roasted meat, you have Rib Steak, Lamb, Pork Sausage, Sirloin Steak, Rumb Roast, Roasted Chicken Legs and Bacon Wrapped Chicken......you really do have to love meat. Wonderful Service, they bring the hot meat choices right to you and you decide how little or how much and they do not stop until you say - enough. I enjoyed the cold buffett choices to accompany the meal.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMDilemaHow will I be able to go back to regular steak houses now? Randomly found this on the web & decided to Birthday splurge with the family. People will say that it can be on the pricey side but you really get what you pay for. ALL YOU CAN EAT MEAT… nuff sai-nope, freshly grilled meat coming nearly non-stop to your table as well as always having warm and seasoned meat provided for you will satiate any carnivorous cravings. The little details and special touches, which you find out on your own, really made the experience great. Definitely should try this restaurant at least once in your life.
Side note: Dined on a Tuesday so there was less people traffic and competing mouths then on a weekend crowd, so I highly recommend a long weekday dinner.4/30/2013 12:00:00 AMAn Amazing NightIt was our first visit to Pampa and we will definitely return.
I think the only thing that suprised me was how many little kids there were there. It's not a bad thing but I did not expect it.
The floors are very slippery (they warn you as you enter if they see you in high heels)4/29/2013 12:00:00 AMFirst time we had dinner there.First time we had dinner there. Very pleased with the food and service. It is at least a one time try.4/4/2013 12:00:00 AMMeat...Need I say more. Some of the best meat I've tasted in Edmonton.3/30/2013 12:00:00 AMExcellent food, good service.Excellent food, good service. "Meataholics" will love this place!3/4/2013 12:00:00 AMAbsolutely fantastic. A meatAbsolutely fantastic. A meat lover's heaven. Great service and a fine selection of carnivorous delights and a unique salad bar. Will come again!2/4/2013 12:00:00 AM
