The restaurant was very noisy and did not have a cozy feel. I would not go there if I was looking for a romantic evening. The overall value was too high for what we got.
The host was very friendly, he gave a lot of great recommendations for drinks and dessert
It was our first time dinning at Pampa and we had an amazing experience
Brunch date. Was a little disappointed with this visit. In the past I’ve had exceptional experience here and love to treat guests. I found the hot buffet items a little “old” and in need of a refresh (the Brazilian crepes and the potato soup was not hot). Lots of items on the salad bar but nothing spectacular. We had to ask for the meats when in the past they would be by so often. Our server had disappeared for quite some time so we had to ask someone else to close off our bill. I will try again but didn’t not feel like I got good value this visit.
Received gift cards and went on a date night. Great service and great quality. When you hear “all you can eat salad bar” you tend not to think about great quality, but it was fresh, lots of variety and well maintained. The table side Brazilian bbq meat carving was great, perfect seasoning, and great quality. We had the cake and dolce coffee for dessert, yum! Would definitely return. - C&B
We had a wonderful experience here for my husband’s birthday. The food was amazing, and the service was top notch. Thank you Pampa, we will be back!!
Amazing staff both the wait staff and the meat servers were beyond friendly and amazing!
We went for lunch to celebrate my son's 21st birthday and had an amazing meal — complete with special bday des. The service was fast and fantastic, the food fresh and delicious, and our experience was a memorable one. Will definitely be back and recommend to friends.
Came out to celebrate my dads 60th birthday! We weren’t sure what we should go with - the smaller summer special or full meat selection. We went with the summer 6 meat and were very impressed. The staff, the food and the event as a whole were incredible.
The meat is why you come here. Let me repeat that - the meat is the most flavourful and succulent option in comparison to other experiences like this in Calgary. The salad / cold bar... is kind of over hyped and unappealing given the fact Minas and Bolero’s has warm and hot entree styled options. You can’t come here and he satisfied by the hot cold station, but you could at Bolero or Mina’s.
Unlike at other Brazilian/ethnic inspired meat skewer places, the flavour and quality of the meat is the finest here at Pampa’s.
The summer special of 35$ a night should be a year round feature - it would make them affordable enough to consider going to more often as compared to the full price.
Related to ambience - in winter... don’t sit next to a window unless you have warm legs or like the cold. Table to floor was pretty chilly at times and to get warm we’d go up and stand by food tables.
Delicious! Great atmosphere. Would dine there again
We thought the food for the most part was good. Some of the beef was very tough which was disappointing. Our biggest disappointment was the breads were all cold a very very dry. The drink prices are outrageous. Server was excellent.
It was my birthday and was celebrating it with my wife, son and his girlfriend. When I arrived at the restaurant my daughter flew in to surprise me for supper. The food was awesome and we had a really good time.
My wife and I went there for our 2nd wedding anniversary. The restaurant is well located, nice environment (music) and the most important: the food, was amazing. Nice portions of meat (beef was the best of it). The servers were respectful and kind. We liked it.
Nice restaurant. Service was great. Highly recommended to others this place.
First visit at Pampa while visiting Calgary for the weekend.
The food is good but they slow down on going around the tables with the meat , so I guess people ate more from the salad bar.
I took my boyfriend there for his birthday and as it was his first time he absolutely loved it. They brought out a complimentary desert saying 'happy birthday' which was unexpected, yet amazing.
We enjoyed the friendly staff and atmosphere. The choice of food was exceptional. Great place to celebrate a birthday!
All you can eat meat! Good cuts cooked and seasoned perfectly.
Food was really good, great service will definitely come again
We were celebrating our 27th wedding anniversary. The food was fantastic and our server Jeff was awesome. Our Rodizio servers (Dexter and Mission) were great too! Had a great evening. Thank you!
Outstanding service and fantastic food! A great selection of salads and cold dishes. We had a celebration for my mom’s birthday and it was incredible! The service was truly impeccable! 6 types of meat including 3 types of fantastic steaks grilled to a perfection! Plus they brought a complimentary desert with a candle. Highly recommend this restaurant!!!!!
We enjoyed walking into a wide open space with natural lighting, high ceilings and tables spaced well apart from one another. The service and food at the Sunday Rodizio brunch was excellent. What I enjoyed most was receiving a variety of meats served warm throughout our brunch, rather than the typical sit down meal where the meat turns cold half way through the meal. What a great concept.
Very rude front desk staff. Waiting staff was decent. Food was OK.
Very great meat quality. Good price for what you get!
It was an amazing experience dining at Pampa.
The staff were great and friendly.
The ambiance was beautiful.
The restaurant was busy but I never felt how busy it was. I still felt like my girls and I were the only ones at the restaurant.
It’s not noisy.
I went there for to celebrate my sister’s birthday. It was great dinner. All the service was perfect, and the food was delicious. Thanks for making our celebration unforgettable.
Everything went perfect
Loved food and service
I’ll be going soon
My husband and I go here a lot and really enjoy it!
Service was amazing. Staff was friendly and inviting. We will definitely be going back.
Salad bar stated to have 50 items which is true but not much variety.
Small size specialty drinks were $12 and didn’t have much of a kick so it was priced to high.
Some of the beef meat cuts were done to well done. They ended up a bit dry for my preference could have been a bit more pink in the middle.
The chicken and pork were all cooked real good and all the bacon wrapped items were real nice! The pineapple was delicious. We never tried the lamb never knew it was available and was not offered any the night we dined there.
The service was energetic and happy to serve.
Overall it was a fun night.
It was our 49th anniversary and we wanted something fancier than the choices in our small rural area. Although we had a 6:30 reservation, we arrived a bit early......about 5:15. We thought we'd just sit in the lounge to wait for our table. The host who met us at the door, said we could be seated immediately, if we chose, so we accepted. The host. I believe his name was Jeffery, explained the premise of the establishment, and was quite attentive throughout. He made a couple of suggestions on the various sauces, and brought us a few samples to try. The food came out hot, and at a pleasantly leisurely pace. Everything we tried was very good. As the evening progressed, the restaurant filled up, and the serving gauchos were kept on the run. All in all it was a very enjoyable meal, and I would heartily recommend my friends and acquaintances to give it a try.
The waiter is a thumb up and staff are nice too. Food is better than many all you can eat steak houses. Most of our food can get it medium rare to medium level. Steaks are well seasoned.
Wish they have some warm vegetables for people like me don’t like to eat cold food.
Food used to be good but was very salty this time. More than 5 min after we we sat down , no one came to take drink order and explained how it worked. Our waiter passed our table a few times without stopping by and I had to call him and ask. However the meat cutters were very nice and one of them even came back with our special request.
Amazing experience. A must go for food and for the service. It is something not many people will have a chance to do.
Staff was amazing food was delicious. I've been to other Brazilian steakhouses and so far this is my favorite
Great evening great service
We went for dinner with friends on the table there was a advertisement for a dinner special. Nothing was mentioned to us in regards to the special at all and when the bill came we were charged the regular price. We were never given the option to have the dinner special. I would expect that it would be explained if your advertising something. The restaurant was quiet not many people dinning. I witnessed a bus boy get talked down too in regress to him clearing plates, the tone used was not appropriate and I give two thumbs up to the young man and how he handled being talked too. Yes he made a mistake and used the clean counter to steady himself, he didn’t want all the plates dropping and crashing to the floor in the quiet empty dinning room. Needless to say we won’t be going back anytime soon.
Birthday dinner for my wife. We go with the kids. Food was delicious and price was very good for amount of food we got it. Thanks
