A word from Pampas Argentinas Steakhouse & Restaurant
Welcome to Pampas Argentinas, authentic Argentine steakhouse and restaurant. From the province of Córdoba, Argentina's heartland, we bring you the culinary delights of the renowned Argentinean Pampas, one of the richest grazing areas in the world and the home of the legendary Gaucho. Argentinean cooking celebrates the richness of the Pampas lands and the simplicity and pureness of the gaucho while drawing influences from its largest immigratory waves of Italians, Spaniards, and other Europeans. Combined with its fine wines and the Argentinean appetite for all things tasty, we invite you to sit back, relax and enjoy the authentic taste of our homeland.

    We visited Pampas for our anniversary. From the very first moment the staff was very kind and friendly. We tried for appetizer the provolone Pampas and the special clams and mussels for two. Both delicious! I'd recommend you save some bread for the sauce. For dinner I picked the fish of the day. Fresh and full of flavor. My husband got the meat special. Perfectly grilled strip steak with roquefort cheese sauce and awesome spanish potatoes. We paired our meal with a very rich argentinean malbec, waiter's recommendation. We were so full that we skipped dessert, but we had a creamy, sweet after dinner drink. The bartender's special with ice cream,'dulce de leche' and liquor. Ask for it! Over all a wonderful experience. Very recommendable.

    My fiancé and I went to Sunday brunch and the food was delicious. However, we were charged $6.50 for using the bottle of water that was already on the table and we weren't aware of this until we got the bill. My fiancé was able to get that charge removed. The waiters need to tell the customers that the bottled water comes with a charge so they can decide if they want to drink it. Or here's a crazy idea. How about the restaurant should just offer water for free?

    It was my first time at Pampas as I've passed Pampas numerous times but never ate there. The food and service were good and the decor was inviting as well. I ordered a chicken dish which was very good. I started with a beef empanada which was good although not worth $3. My wife ordered the skirt steak and it was decent but nothing special. The red sangria was tasty as well. Overall it was a good dining experience and we would go back.

    Wonderful service and the steak is tasty enough... but the food gets cold really really fast. They need to serve steaks and mashed potatoes on hot plates. About 5 minutes into my meal, my food was lukewarm.

    Great portions, Sangria was ok, a little disappointed . Chicken was amazing definitely the highlight of the meal---Steak was undercooked--didn't even finish it. App's were the star of the night... I'd go back and have regular wine and avoid the steak.

    We went with our friends and their young son on Memorial Day. The restaurant was quiet, the food was delicious, and the service was excellent. My husband has a service dog, and they made us feel very welcome - not tolerated but welcome. We'll go there again. Paella was amazing. Our friends had the mixed grill which they said was excellent.

    I liked the quiet and well-lit atmosphere. We ordered the burger and steak & eggs, which were both cooked closer to rare than the medium we had asked for. Many of the brunch items that contained steak required adding $2-3, which sort of defeats the purpose of having a "prix-fixe" menu. However, for $15 it's a good deal - one alcoholic beverage, one entree, and either coffee or tea. The service was ok…we went right at noon when they opened and it looked like our waiter was still half-asleep. But he was appropriately attentive and not over-bearing. Overall, I would go back for the deal, but not specifically for the food.

    This was my second time at Pampas and I was again not dissappointed. I got the empanadas and parilla, but would recommend many of the dishes on their own if you can't take down such a massive plate. Some of my favorite cuts, which they cook very well are entraña and lomo. I also saw some of the pasta dishes, but decided rather than eat a second dinner to try their dessert. I highly recommend their chocolate cake. Our waiter was very helpful with giving wine pairing recommendations. You could easily pay twice as much for a steak in a Manhattan restaurant, whose definition of customer service, from bus-boy to maitre d, is, "I'm a New Yorker, so f&^% you." Oh yeah, and the recommendation: a great, well priced Argentinian Cab Sav.

    I truly love Pampas!! Went this past Saturday. This restaurant is super authentic and the food was excellent! I had a wonderful dining experience!! My two friends and I had lovely cocktails before eating. We started our meal off with the grilled provolone, empanadas, and fried calamari, which were all l really delicious. The waiters were really friendly and attentive. For my main course I ate a mouthwatering roasted wild salmon with veggies on the side paired with a lovely white wine. The salmon was sooo good...cooked just right, delicate and so tasty. And my friends really loved their steaks and side dishes. The dulce de leche crepe was awesome! We can't wait to go back!!

    We went on a Saturday night. The restaurant was full but not packed. Our waiter would disappear inexplicably (place is pretty small). The food was a major disappointment. Fried calamari was rubbery (first sign not fresh). The rib eye steak was fatty and tough. Given the price we were expecting an excellent cut of meat - WRONG! We could get a better cut and portion from Outback (yuck). The Salmon was overcooked, dry and fishy tasting - another sign that it was not fresh. It took 2 1/2 hours to complete our meal (4 people - no dessert / coffee). Many tables turned over and there was constantly open seats. In other words the place was not very busy. Skip this one, many other better choices in the area.

    We had a great meal although I agree with other reviews about the meat being tough but tasty. We had the mixed grill for two and we took home half the meat. The empanada appetizer was delicious. We had a salad that could have been a main course. The service was outstanding. Only criticism would be that the music was very loud.

    We were a party of 4 celebrating my husband's birthday. Our waiter Sebastian and the wait staff were outstanding and exceptionally attentive. Based on the previous glowing reviews, we ordered a pitcher of white sangria. It was delicious and did not disappoint. After enjoying complimentary bruschetta, we shared fried calamari and the special mussels and clams in wine sauce appetizers. For entrees, we had extra spicy linguini with seafood fra diavlo, skirt steak which was mouthwatering and salmon dijonnaise. The complimentary cheesecake, which was artistically presented, was an added treat. Overall it was a wonderful meal and we will definitely go again.

    I met up with a few friends to try our first Argentinean steakhouse in Queens, and we were not disappointed. Our server, Carlos, was excellent. Out of all the dishes we tried, I enjoyed the skirt steak from the mixed grill and the beef empanadas most of all. The red sangria was great as well. Next time we go back I will try the bone-in ribeye.

    After reading reviews, my husband and I were looking forward to this meal. It did not live up to prior reviews. The calamari appetizer was overcooked frozen pieces. The shellfish paella was totally unseasoned. The red sangria was overly sweet with no rum or brandy to counter the sweetness. The skirt steak and empanada were okay. I think it was overpriced for what was offered. If there was a rating between fair and poor that is what I would have selected.

As my entree i ordered a Skirt Steak. It was Juicy and very tender. The ambience was a bit tooo Dark for my liking. I could barely see the menu. Other then that it was all good.
