    We have dined at Pampas several times. The steaks are absolutely awesome. Splurge and get the "Brick Filet" that is one of the best pieces of meat I have ever eaten. Great wine list, outstanding service. More expensive than others and worth every penny.

    Dined on 9/13/2014
    My wife and I celebrated our 15th anniversary, and we had a wonderful experience. This was our third trip, and as expected the food was incredible. The service was equally impressive, and our server took the time to write, in chocolate, "Happy 15th Anniversary (and our names)" on our dessert plate, which was complimentary. The only negative I have is that the restaurant gets a little noisy, and it detracts a little from a romantic ambiance. I had not noticed the noise in the past, because we were in large groups. That said, it was not so loud that we could not hear each other. Overall, you are truly missing spectacular food and service if you miss out on Pampas!

    There are so many high-end steak house (chains) to choose from these days, most of which seem to be interchangeable to the point of genericity. But this establishment separates itself from the pack with distinctive and intriguing cuts of beef prepared via their signature grilling methods involving white oak wood embers that impart superb sensory impressions. The service was solid, the ambiance comfortable, and the wine list respectable. In summary, the experience was both delightful and unforgettable. And my clients have been thanking me for days!

    We went there to celebrate my son's engagement. The food was spectacular--the comments from the group were "never had a better meal". My wife and I split the Australian beer fed steak--outstanding. From the appetizers to the desert, everything was better than just great. The service was also outstanding, very attentive without the annoying "hovering". We will definitely be back.

    Pampas Argentine Steakhouse is one of our goto places. Usually we can score a last-minute reservation and parking is always convenient and free. Having eaten there many times I/we have never had any reason to complain or experienced any disappointment. The pieces always seem to add up to more than the whole. I did notice it was particularly loud this past evening but this restaurant is almost always full; a good thing.

    Pampas is ALWAYS our destination when we are celebrating something special. Our latest trip was to celebrate two wedding anniversaries....our 54th and our daughter and son-in-law's 28th. We also sneak in other times to eat there as well...but ALWAYS for something special. You are treated like royalty and the food cannot be beaten. We will be sorely disappointed if they ever close their doors!!

    We heard about Pampas from some friends and we are so glad we tried it for dinner on our anniversary. The food was just amazing... Empanadas are not to be missed and I got "The Brick" which was a 14oz filet and probably the best I've ever had. Sides were great too - basil fried corn, spicy roasted cioppolini onions, and lyonnaise potatoes. My husband got the surf and turf which was a smaller cut of filet and an herb crusted sea bass with the most delicious sauce. This is my new favorite steak house by far! Service was awesome and your typical dark wood dining area.

  • Great steaks, amazing sides
    joewashb
    Dined on 8/25/2014
    The Delmonico steak was an excellent cut, and very flavorful. Cooking over the Georgia Oak charcoal fire imbues these steaks with a wonderful crust. The quality of the meat is top notch. The more impressive part of our dinner, imo, was the extra attention to the sides. These are served family style (as in on the side with their own serving spoon). The menu says there is enough of each side for two people, but we found that you will need roughly 1 side for each member of your party (thus, two dinning out would choose two sides to share). In addition to the garlic mashed potatoes, we chose grilled asparagus and the basil grilled corn. The corn was a wonderful standout, as it is grilled on the cob, then cut off the cob when served.

    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.

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.

    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.
