    For a Brasilian style churrascaria, the meat selection was limited. Maybe because it was a slow Sunday evening? Great ambience...courteous and friendly staff.

    We were celebrating our anniversary at Pampas Grille. When it is good, this restaurant is good but when it is bad it is horrid. The salad bar was lacking. the kale salad was a dish of kale with a can of mandarin oranges dumped on it. The lettuce was a plate of chopped up lettuce with thinned out sour cream, the salami platter had the ends on it. I have seen a better salad bar here. :( Our gaucho did serve us and responded to our requests but.. we were asked how we wanted our meet, we said rare. We got well done scraps. The second time around pineapple was served with the ham. The whole atmosphere was flat-lined and we have decided next time to celebrate somewhere with a more upbeat atmosphere.

    We had a very enjoyable evening. We both thought the seasoning on the various meats was just a little bit too salty for our taste. We also had to ask several times to have the particular meat server to come to our tabel

    Pluses were the salad bar and the overall ambience. We specifically ordered our meat "medium"; however even the very outside slices were "rare". My wife ate very little of the lamb and beef because it was too rare for. Each time the meat server came out, we mentioned this; however, there was not change in the doneness of the outside slices. We did have an early dinner reservation; perhaps this is why. Still, there was no excuse not to correct the doneness of the meat after we gave feedback.

    This place is better and better every time we dine. The salad and sides bar has some unique items like Hearts of Palm salad, Brazilian vinagrette with marinated tomatoes, peppers and onion, Brazilian beef stew, chili and marinated mushrooms. The meats were plentiful and served so promptly there was always something succulent on my plate. Very attentive service from our waiter, Javier.

    Pampas Grille is fairly typical for a Brazilian style restaurant. They bring unlimited meat and cut it for you at the table. The food quality was good, though as often the case it was on the salty side. The Tapas bar was not great, but they did bring plates of seafood to the table which was very nice. Overall, it was good.

    About a year ago - this place was great... And now This place has really gone down the toilet. The quality of food has gotten worse over th past months. The market bar is quality you get at a cheap Asian buffet! For that kind of money I rather go to one of those. Go to Texas de Brazil and spend the extra money to enjoy yourself!

    Four of us dined celebrating a wedding anniversary. We had a coupon good for a surf and turf rodizio diiner for 4 with 1 drink per person for 50% off. We've been here for both lunch and dinner. Being health conscious, I was disappointed that many items in the salad bar were in sauce or mayonnaise. The seafood servings were our favorites--mussels, shrimp, salmon and mahi mahi unlimited. The beef was on the rare side. All in all, we enjoyed ourselves and the food. To be truthful, there is no way anyone in our party could have eaten $60 worth of food. With a coupon, however the situation changes and I can recommend this restaurant. When we find another coupon, we will go back.

    This was the second time I had dined at the restaurant. Everything was fine... Service, value, quality, etc... But the place was deserted. Only four tables were occupied during our stay. That worries me! Will Pampas Grille survive until the snowbirds return and restaurants get filled? I certainly hope so. Hate to see this place disappear!

    Place was empty - only two table filled including ours and it stayed like that till after 8 PM when we finished our dinner. Food was good and service was fine. We asked for sangria which was not on the menu and she said they had it but never told us it was available by the glass or pitcher. A pitcher was $40 which was higher than several bottles of wine on the menu that we might have chosen had we known the price of the sangria. Salad bar was terrific with a lot of options. Sides to have with the radizio were very limited as were the dessert option (3). Free parking was a nice perk.

This is a romantic and wonderful place and the ambience is great. I would highly recommend this for a date night. You will enjoy this place. It is beyond excellent.

    Other then Chima's in Ft Lauderdale, this has to be one of the better places for Brazilian rodizio. Nice selection of meat for the money but the salad bar was a limited for my liking. The staff was very nice. The place has a very nice atmosphere for both large parties and intimate dining. I would go back again.

    The salad selection is very limited, no more than a hand full of choices. Your menu mentions 13 types of meats and I most definitely didn't see that many choices. Also the frequency of the services is not consistent. The waitress was not very attending with my table and had to ask a different waiter for drinks and removal of plates. Overall a very disappointing experience considering the value. I have visit many restaurants with this format here in the US and oversees and this may be the lowest in my list.

    one reason I picked this restaurant was for its decor, I thought it would be a great place to take the family and show them how the place was unfortunately it did not give the service it so much needs when you have a group like i did, it was poorly handled by the staff and to get food was a long time unless you go to the buffet. there was no coordination by our waiter with his food runner to provide adequate amount of meat brought to the table it was a free for all to try to get a staff member with meat for our group. perhaps with just two or four customers per table they will provide better service otherwise Im sorry next mothers day I will go somewhere esle.

    The idea of Pampas Grille intrigued myself & my boyfriend, so I made reservations for his Birthday there. Our server was prompt, friendly & immediately asked if we had dined there before. When we told him it was our first time, he took the menu over & was great in explaining our options & even offered some suggestions. After we came back from the side bar we sat for about 9-10 mins, our server returned & was surprised when we said no one had come by with the meats. The entire time we were there, 5 trips were made to our table by the meat servers. Out of the 12 meat options we had anticipated, the trips brought only 3 of those options. The main reason we went was for variety & we we're let down to say the least. For the price, not worth it.

    We liked most of the meats they served. One of the "meat" choices they brought around too the tables was roasted pineapple, which was delicious. The glaze on the pork shoulder was a bit sweet for my taste. My favorites were the beef choices--nicely cooked and savory seasoning. Their much-touted "30-item salad bar" was a real disappointment, especially considering if I only wanted that, it would have still cost $25. I think, mostly for that reason, I would have to call their menu grossly overpriced. We also had trouble getting the guys with the meat skewers to visit our table. We finally had to ask our waiter to stear them over to us.

    I don't consider myself a food snob at all, but this place was horrible. I found this place on a groupon so I figured why not. I feel at $60 I was ripped off, if I would have paid $120 I don't know what I would have done. The service was horrible, it took forever to get any meat to our table, even then they were few and far between with over cooked unseasoned meat. Our dessert littlerly looked like it was half a slice of the display peice. Stay away!

    Great soup, salad and sides bar. Try the Brazilian Vinagrette on your salad. Unique items - Brazilian Chili, Grilled peppers, marinated mushrooms, olive and roasted garlic medly. After the appetisers the servers bring entrees. Surf and Turf is a platter of broiled whitefish, barbecue salmon, shrimp scampi and mussels in a creamy pink sauce. Grill highlights were the Picanha top sirloin, bacon wrapped sirloin, roast pork, lamb and bacon wrapped chicken legs. Sides included fresh vegetables, potatoes and rice and beans. Great service from Javier, our waiter, and the "roving meatmen" throughout. Impressively, I received a call from Melissa the following day asking how our experience was and offering me a VIP Card on my next visit. Nice touch!

    Our previous visit to Pampas Grille was for dinner. This time it was for lunch. Except for a smaller selection of meats at lunch, lunch was every bit as good as dinner. The salad bar was full of a great variety of salads and accompaniments. The meat servings were well cooked and very tasty if perhaps a bit too much salt. You will want to try everything, but there is no way due to the abundance of choices. Go with an appetite so you can sample many different items. Pampas Grille does not disappoint. We will certainly visit again.
