    We always enjoy Pampas. The steaks are wonderful, and the "side dishes" are great. Try the basil-fried corn. The wine list has some wonderful selections, but few of the wait staff know much about them or how to properly decant a wine. They are generally attentive, if spread somewhat thin. The servers are excellent. The wait staff greets you by name if you have a reservation, and it's usually a good idea to try to get one. Never had a bad or mediocre dinner there.

    My wife and I have been coming to Pampas since it opened 11 years ago. It only gets better! We just happened to make a reservation for this past Wed evening, and to our great surprise it turned out to be half-price wine night! There is no greater bargain in town. We have also taken advantage of the 20% discount on gift cards which runs until the end of the year.

    Our dinner Wednesday night was wonderful. We went for my fiancé's birthday, and it was a delightful evening. The food as usual was great, we love the lobster bisque! My skirt steak was enough for 2 people, I even have enough left over for a salad. The service is bar none!

    I was not pleased. Our server had to many tables and was not attentive. When you spend well over $200 for two people to have dinner, you expect great service. As nd sadly the food was not fantastic. I ordered the New York strip and it wasn't right. The server did not even offer to fix it. Sadly we will not go back again.

    My wife and I just had a our first meal at Pampas for our Anniversary. Steaks were the best I've had. Cooked to perfection. Service was excellent - our waiter did a great job for us while also helping with a couple of larger groups. Steaks are in the $30-$45 range - and worth every penny. We will definitely be back.

    We have been to Pampas many times over the years, always enjoyed the experience. This time there seemed to be a problem with the kitchen, as our server explained, and our main courses took FOREVER to arrive. The food was good, maybe not excellent, but we'll probably give it another try before long.

  • Did not meet expectations
    OpenTable Diner Since 2014
    Dined on 11/1/2014
    Everything was good. Nothing was great. We were on a very special date night, with two small boys it is very hard to get away. We were sat next to a Family with three small children. When I asked for a different table, they moved us ONE down although our reservations were at 5pm and 98% of tables were still empty. The booth we were in was in line with the front door, since restaurant is so dark, everytime the door opened my husband felt like he had a flashlight in his eyes (my back was to the door). The service was definitely what was expected of a restaurant of this type. Oh I do remember one great thing, the lobster bisque was incredible. All in all, good but not great. I won't b going back nor will I b recommending it to anyone.

    The food in Pampas is very, very good. Their specialty are steaks, which are the best steaks in South East region. I've had opportunity to compare Pampas's steaks with other steak restaurants - Longhorn, Ray's, Ruth Chris, Wolfgang Puck and etc. and steaks in Pampas are the best in my opinion by quality, size and price. Besides the steaks Seafood dishes, appetizers and sides are also very tasty. The service and presentation are very professional and reasonably fast.

    Based on yelp's reviews we decided to give a try to Pampa's Steakhouse...it was wonderful and so worth trying something new. From the get go, our waiter "Abraham" was amazing and so enjoyable to have that night. We ordered 'Beef Carapaccio', Arugula salad, beef sirloin and creme brulee. From appetizers all the way through desserts (incl drinks), food and service were up to part if not better. The beef was unique piece and it was exquisite (melts in your mouth). My husband thought the lights were a bit too dim and noise was a nuisance at first but it just blended once he got used to the environment. Live music was such a treat to enjoy. We've enjoyed our beautiful date night! I think we found our new place!

    We spent three hours for dinner in this restaurant. The food was delayed by at least an hour, the meat was not to my satisfaction, and our guests were really hungry by the time the food got to our table. We had to ask for four baskets of bread to be brought to our table just to tide us over. Even with four orders of appetizers, we were still hungry by the time the steaks got to our table. I will not recommend this restaurant to anyone even if our server was quite good. Even then all he could do was apologize. :(

    Our birthday celebration was great, as was the food and wine. Always an experience to dine here. Service first rate! I left my camera in the car and the waiter took my valet ticket and got it for me!! The steaks here are delicious - prepared in an Argentinian designed oven/grill. The main restaurant can be a little loud, but on the weekends they seat in the meet/event areas as well and these are much quieter. It was great for our party of 5.

    Truly one of the great restaurants anywhere in and around Atlanta. Precisely cooked steak and fish, excellent side order choice, wonderful deserts, and an ambiance and serving team to trouble the best. Never a cheap place to eat, but you'll not be left feeling it wasn't worth the cost either. If you appreciatte good restaurants like Canoe and Foundation, you'll not be disappointed, especially when in need of a superb steak. Thoroughly recommended.

    Food was wonderful as usual and the service inside the restaurant was excellent. However, if the restaurant can not make it without a valet concession, then they should close. It's ridiculous to use a valet where parking is plentiful and close to the restaurant. I got to the restaurant at 6:30pm and every non-valet parking spot was taken, forcing me to valet park. Note that the valet had blocked off half the parking lot and this area was pretty much empty. With every non-valet spot taken that early, its pretty obvious people don't want to valet park. And I don't appreciate being forced to use a valet in a suburban area where parking is plentiful.
