Feb 15- This was our first visit, we went to the downtown location. It was absolutely amazing! 7pm and parking was available right out front though they seemed busy. From the greeting at the front door to our immediate, sincere and warm welcome from Susan, we knew we were going to have a wonderful night out. Susan made the whole experience! She talked us through everything. Drinks and food did not stop coming, as well as her humour and warmth. And it was all 5 stars. I don’t know if it would’ve been the same without her!! Strongly recommend the downtown location and sitting in her section. All staff were proffessional and accommodating but Susan really stood out. Id give her more stars if possible. We’ll definitely be back!

Valentines day was great at Pampas. We had a reservation for 8:45 and despite the late time the food was still hot, fresh and delicious. It was a set 160$ for two, it came with the typical dinner menu as well as dessert and two glasses of champagne. Our drinks were comped as it took 10 minutes for someone to greet us at our table but the gentleman that did was phenomenal, I wish I remembered his name. With our drinks comped it still came to 200$ with tip which felt a bit expensive but we were expecting it to be about that amount. We were so full afterwards, we had to take breaks to catch up on all the things on our plates. The top sirloin and bacon wrapped chicken were my personal favorites, and make sure to try the cheese buns, they are great. Overall it was great and we will be returning.

First time at Pampa and I must say that our server Susan was the right amount of friendly and professional. She explained the whole experience to us so that we could take our time and enjoy ourselves. The salad bar was so very fresh with such unique salads and sides took small amounts of many to try. My husbands family is from Chile and some of the meats were sure to bring memories of bbq's with his grandparents. Truly a wonderful dining experience and we will be back.

We had reservation on sunday for brunch for my mothers birthday. Pampa has never disappointed as I've been several times (last being NYE). However, contrary to our outstanding server and great food, it was FREEZING as the heat was not working. Not the fault of anyone's but the HVAC system and poorly timed -40 Alberta weather. We were given blankets which helped but it did turn a pleasant brunch into a trip to the Arctic (or so I can imagine), warm cuts of meat and caramel french toast quickly turned cold before completion. We were hoping for a bit more compensation but were offered 10% off the Bill's but I feel perhaps comping at least our $5 hot tea would've been nice as it was a necessity given the frigid indoor temperatures. Having said ALL that, I do hope the heat is up and running as my other half and I will be returning for brunch on Valentine's day weekend.

Service was excellent. The waitress offered an old wine list that was a great choice at a discounted price. Bonus! She even made up a little desert plate in honour of our guest's puppy's birthday she heard in a conversation we were having.
Very personable and lovely lunch was enjoyed by us!
Thank you

Delicious.
Salad bar was just ok but I suppose one isn’t there for the salad
A little disappointed in the waitress as she stop being attentive half way thru our meal and we certainly would of had a drink or 2 more if we weren’t waiting so much.
Meat was Amazing! And meat servers were so awesome!

Everything was very good, except the state of the greens on the salad bar and the homemade white bread. I was very disappointed to find brown lettuce and wilted spinach, and the bread was old and dried out. As a result, I opted not to even have a green salad, and I did not eat my bread. Based on the price point and the reputation of Pampas, I would have expected fresher selections.

We were very disappointed with the cost of the food. Our server offered for us to have the add on items of prawns and bacon wrapped wild boar as well as a desert to our dinner. She failed to tell us the price. When we received the bill we were very shocked to see the additional cost of $25 per person. It definitely was not worth the added money and the meal itself was certainly not worth $80 per person. At best I ate maybe $20 worth of food. Very disappointing and I won’t be back.

I go out dining quite a bit… This time I thought I’d take my boy out for a bite… And I knew what we were in for somewhat. Bigger bill because we got four people dining ..two boys 10 & 13. As I stated it’s a set price..you kind a know what you’re getting into… After 3 cocktails each.. A couple of desserts… That bill was $350. Was it worth 350… The occasion certainly was justified… But I wouldn’t go back again with the whole family. We don’t eat the value that’s been charged.

Excellent idea of a buffet that is a notch more sophisticated than most buffets known to the city. The cheese rolls were to die for!!! The meat was great, as it should be and the desserts were excellent!

Pampa is a treat - a bit expensive but worth the experience. Service was good - the only negative is the noise level - open seating with buffet style arrangements make for an informal and boisterous atmosphere.

We enjoyed our birthday celebration with five adults on a Saturday night. The waiter assigned to our table was attentive, friendly, and appeared concerned that we would have a good experience at pampas. He chased down the two types of meat I wanted and was informed on what contained gluten and sugar. Celiac patron was able to eat with confidence as was keto patron. Coffee was great. The salad bar was well labelled with ingredients lists which was appreciated. Places for improvement would be the servers of the meat skewers were not on the ball for our table. For about twenty minutes toward the end of our meal we got offered nothing despite our green go cards being up on the table. Once I hailed down the waiter, and servers were directed to our table it was fine. The waiter was kind enough to present two lovely dessert plates to our birthday folks and that was very nice. We were able to pre purchase guft cards at Costco for pampas and saved $60 by doing that. Coincidently the bill came to $300 for five adults and we happily were able to give our waiter the $60 we had saved by buying gift cards as a tip. Happy evening. Thanks.

Definitely a different type of dining experience. Okay to try, but we won't be back. We went for a special dinner and although the restaurant was far from busy, everyone was seated very close together and it was hard not to hear other conversations. The service was excellent. I don't generally do an "all you can eat buffet-style" meal out as I just can't eat enough to get good value. Overall, if I'm going to spend over $150 for a meal (we each had dessert and water to drink), we both prefer the food and the more intimate ambiance at other steakhouses.

I love Pampa’s for a good Keto friendly lunch. Today they only had one guy bringing meat around, so there was a fair wait between meat servings. Usually it’s way faster. Still a good meal though.

Salad bar was plentiful but not good freshness and not unique selections. Mostly potatoe and pasta salads and pickles.
Red Meat selections were tasty and had variety.
Sausage was dry and overcooked. Chicken was undercooked in some selections.
Extra cost for dessert above the $27 cost for lunch is excessive.

Hello,

I made this reservation for my girlfriends birthday dinner with a total of 4 of us... I just want to mention that I would have appreciated knowing there would be 18% auto gratuity. I am a manager at a restaurant and for our company, we are required to mention auto gratuity when the customer reserves, when they arrive the host mentions it again, the server then mentions it before they take the customers order. Another thing is that we only put auto gratuity on table of 8 or larger, now I've heard of places charging auto gratuity on tables of 6 or more but you guys do it for 4 people? Lastly, I felt embarrassed to speak up at that moment when I was handed the bill and told oh by the way there is an 18% tip on there already. Great... I couldn't even debate this with the server since that would have made a scene on a very important night.

I genuinely hope you take this feedback to heart.

Thank you,
T

We reserved a table at this restaurant for New Years Eve. I wasn't expecting to see how crowded and loud it was in there. Our server was friendly and attentive. II liked the salad bar. There were lots of choices. However, I want to say that no human being needs to consume as much meat as they served. Also, when I ordered a glass of wine, it tasted terrible, like it had been open for a long time and was off. I ordered another glass of a different type of wine, but it tasted bad as well.
I found the price very expensive for what we ate. We only ate a little meat, and some salad bar. Also, the gratuity was automatically added to our bill. We ended up paying over $34 in tip! We did not enjoy our experience in this establishment and will not be going back.
