Food was yummy and the meat options were great. Such a lovely team and our server was so awesome! Wish more patrons would dress better to go there but what can you do. The restaurant itself service staff and food was awesome, would definitely go back:)

Wonderful meal,
Restaurant was 20% full which resulted in outstanding speed and detail of service.
Food was brought delightfully quick but never rushed.
Wine was such a delight, we took a risk on a great recommendation and it paid off with a fantastic pairing to our leisurely Birthday meal.
My partner and I closed down the place and were so very happy to roll out at the end, congratulating ourselves all the way to the car for our fantastic dinner this beautiful spring evening.

5 stars tonight!

I had heard Pampa had really gone downhill since they first opened and they most certainly have. They are the most expensive Brazilian BBQ in the city and I would say probably the worst. I won’t ever bother going back, it’s totally not worth it. Minas in Eau Claire is ten times better.

Great experience but we did not get served the meat very fast. Not sure if that is because we had a table of 10. Dessert isn’t included in the meal which is weird as the one in Texas includes dessert. Would think a restaurant that claims to be Brazilian would have drinks to with the culture.

There was 5 of us that went. We are so disappointed. The food was not great. My brothers Caesar was horrible and he told them that after a few sips but no acknowledgment, apology or even an offer to remake it. The desserts where awful and very cold, and after 1.5 hours they kept coming to ask us to pay our bill as if they thought we where going to run out on the bill. Stopped refilling our water as soon as we paid even though we continued to sit and chat long after (2.5 hour seating for 5 guests or more).
Will not be back and do not recommend at all.

My only regret is that I only discovered this place a few days ago even though I work in the same building. The meat was juicy, the salad bar had so many options and the overall value of the food is reasonable.

For $50 a head I expected a higher quality of food, top serloin and chicken servings were good but the rest of the meats were tough and disappointing. Even the salad bar hot meats were disappointing. Servers were awesome though and the drink offerings were intriguing. The atmosphere didn't work for us either, too "downtown-ish", if that makes sense. Some parties couldn't hear the music which was playing right above us. Hard to recommend this place.

The meat tastes good - It’s flavourful and tender. If you are only there for the meat, it’s pretty great and at 50$ a person I’d rather come here then go to a steakhouse where I get one steak from one kind of animal. Just make sure to not get a table next to a large group - too often they’d go to them first with a vibrant, fresh skewer and then they’d come with the leftovers to our table trying to auction off the middle chunk of what was a roast or only enough for one of us but not both.

Having been to a few restaurants coined Brazilian steakhouses, Mina’s, Bolero’s and Gaucho, I must say the “50 plus item” and “one of a kind salad bar” was not all it was pumped up to be. Other restaurants have stews and salads and charcuterie and Brazilian inspired unique-eats, whereas Pampa’s (yes) has some soup like container, but the limp lettuce and spinach salad bar was inadequate for what you’re paying.

Maybe they take better care of it on busy weekends but we went on a Tuesday and I wouldn’t go back based on that sadly. When other restaurants have more stacked food bars and a larger list of meats and other skewers (like glazed pineapple and roasted veggies and 20+ meat options at boleros) Pampa’s meat might taste slightly better but at the cost I’d hope for more.

We have been going to pampa since they opened and this is the first time we have ever been upset about the food we love our steak medium rare and 7 times we requested medium rare and not once did they bring medium rare everytime it was medium well to well done. We finally asked the server if he could get us medium rare and it still came out as well done. We are not ones to complain and we have been long time
Loyal pampa customers and overall were very upset and surprised by the quality of meat when we were there and the fact that the people bringing the meat around look at us as if they had no idea what we meant when asking
For medium rare. This last experience will unfortunately make us think twice About the next time we are going to go spend the money that we do here for dinner.

I've been here a few times and it's been great in the past,however, this time the servcice was too slow.
It took about 10 minutes without any meat coming. Probably because we are seated at the back end of the restaurant.

I went to Pampa Brazilian Steakhouse for lunch Friday March 22 2019,
The restaurant was clean and inviting.
The salads bar was very nicely setup and choices are very balanced for all tastes.
But I didn’t come for salad 😀 the Radizio was very nicely mixed the protein choices were great, sausage was the only thing which was t my personal taste but very good food and service.

Good food and restaurant. Service fine, but it would have been nice to have a salad bar explanation, in the sense of the sauces for meats, etc. The rest of the salad bar is somewhat explanatory, but we totally missed this aspect of the food experience.
