    I took my son and her wife to celebrate the promotion of my daughter in law in her job and they were very satisfied as well as me. I had an excellent salmon and the scallops truffle potatoes were really good. I was very surprise with restaurant specially cause I have high levels of food expectation. No matter that is a pricey place We will comeback several times.

    We are fortunate to have great steak houses in Atlanta. I have eaten steaks in the top ten steak houses years on end. No one beats Atlanta. There are other great steak houses, but Atlanta has as good as any. We are very happy to have one of the best steak houses in Atlanta and for that matter anywhere in the US right here in North Atlanta, Pampas. Good news, bad news. We now don't have to drive to the Perimeter on Buckhead for a great steak. Good for us, not so good for the other steak houses.

    This was our first time at Pampas and it was excellent. Ben was our waiter and he was wonderful. He explained the wine list and went into detail about the different cuts of steak and had a platter to show us the cuts before we ordered. My husband said his was the best steak he's ever eaten. I ordered the herb-crusted sea bass - also excellent. Will definitely go back again for a special occasion.

    My husband and I wanted to try a new restaurant and found Pampas Steakhouse. We both had the bone-in filet and it was the tastiest steak I've ever had! Great wine list selection and excellent service even on a busy Saturday night. I would highly recommend this restaurant if you have a special occasion or just want to have an awesome steak.

    Excellent by virtually any measure. The best steak I have had, table of four and everything was truly delicious, all entrees and sides and also had the crème brulee which was very good. Server was highly attentive and knowledgeable, meat presentation was a nice touch. For meat eaters this is a must try.

    Went to this restaurant to celebrate a birthday. The server was very attentive and accommodating. We found restaurant a little cold and he immediately turned up the heat. For appetizers, I highly recommend the tuna tartar - amazing. All of our steaks were cooked as requested, all extremely tender and flavorful. Very nice wine list and Pampas Pear cocktail was very light and refreshing. We have been to this restaurant several times when we lived in the area. Now that we are an hour away, won't go as frequently but will make the trip for special occasions.

    This place is a hit or miss. You would expect a hit everytime for the prices. My husband order his steak well-done, when it came back medium, he asked them to cook it longer until well-done. They literally burnt, I mean charred burnt, a $40 steak. We were not pleased. Been there 4 times, twice, it's been fantastic. Probably not going back any time soon.....

    Great dining experience! I got the empanadas and the ribeye with asparagus. My steak was cooked to perfection. The service was excellent. It wasn't overly loud. Check out their wine specials during the week. They also have adequate space for groups. If you like steak this is one of the best north of Hals.

    I had the bone in filet and it was one of the best steaks I have ever had. Full of flavor and cooked perfectly. My wife had a shrimp dinner and it was ok. Shrimp was a little over cooked. Our waiter was great and very attentive. Supporting staff was there to refill water and take plates away as needed. Wine list was good as well.

    I'm not a big fan of beef so naturally, steakhouses don't make me jump up and down. My first time at Pampas was for a business dinner and because everyone raved about their steaks, I had one. I was hooked. I've been back multiple times for business so on my wedding anniversary, I came with my husband. It was excellent and they made sure they called us by our names and even brought out a special dessert for us. Can't say more about the restaurant. Its a must try.

    This was my first and last visit to this place I had heard so much about. When my entre arrived, I lifted up and removed the parsley garnish and saw something I should not have seen on any plate - a hair. When I removed the hair (which looked to be an eyelash) and called our waiter's attention to it, he disclaimed that it was a hair and said it was from the asparagus (how that was possible when the asparagus was served separately, I do not know). Regardless, I was uncomfortable with the whole place for the rest of the evening. I made the best of it for the sake of my dinner companion, but I will never go back.

Unique twist on the traditional 1st class steakhouse with a number of Argentine specialties...empanadas, chorizo sausage, fried provolone cheese, potato gnocchi, and much more. Wonderful beef and wine list. The place is not a secret...well established and proven. Worth the price.

    My 6 year old daughter and I had dinner there after her cheerleading last on July 23rd. We both enjoyed everything. She had a bowl of delicious mashed potatoes and I had a Kansas City Strip and Caprese salad. Steak was cooked perfectly and salad was delicious. I had a bottle of Heitz Cellers Cabernet which was outstanding also. Prices not that bad really compared to other high quality steak houses.

    Pampas always delivers on the food. I had the mixed grill with sweetbreads and it was excellent. Perfectly cooked, tender, spot on seasoning. The sautéed spinach was too salty though. The ceviche we had as a starter was amazing. The service was good. We were not told about any specials although I overheard another waiter talking about a soup special.
